Divided court reinstates Arizona inmate’s death sentence - SCOTUSblog

The Supreme Court issued orders today from the justices’ private conference last week. The justices had already granted one case, involving class certification in a securities-fraud case, from that conference on Friday, so it was no surprise that they did not add any new cases to their merits docket for this term. The justices denied review in two high-profile cases, involving LGBTQ rights and a proof-of-citizenship requirement for voting, and issued a summary opinion that vacated a ruling by a federal appeals court in favor of an Arizona death-row inmate.

Case preview: The $124 billion questions – Justices to hear argument in dispute over Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac shareholder suit - SCOTUSblog

This morning, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in a case about statutory restrictions on the president’s ability to remove the director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency—an agency created in response to 2008 financial crisis responsible for regulating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

If that sounds familiar, it should! In June, SCOTUS ruled in Seila Law v. CFPB that statutory restrictions on the president’s ability to remove the director of the CFPB violated the Constitution’s separation of powers.

Symposium: The solicitor general, the shadow docket and the Kennedy effect - SCOTUSblog

Three and a half years into the Trump administration, the solicitor general has sought emergency relief — to stay a lower-court ruling or lift a lower-court stay — on 36 separate occasions, including 14 alone during the October 2019 term. That’s in contrast to the previous 16 years — under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama — when the solicitor general sought such relief eight times, or once every other year.

Among the hot-button issues that Judge Amy Coney Barrett has encountered in her nearly three years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit is the scope of qualified immunity, a doctrine that often protects public officials from lawsuits for damages if they are sued for violating constitutional rights. The doctrine prevents such lawsuits unless the public official allegedly violated “clearly established” law – a standard that has been interpreted narrowly to mean that the official’s conduct violated some previous court precedent finding nearly identical conduct illegal. -Stephen Wermiel

Justice Clarence Thomas: 'Our abortion precedents are grievously wrong and should be overruled' LIVEACTION.ORG Justice Clarence Thomas: 'Our abortion precedents are grievously wrong and should be overruled' In his dissent, in June Medical Services v. Russo, Justice Clarence Thomas pointed out major flaws in the decision and in Roe v. Wade itself. Comments Write a comment… Lucy Carpenter Dear Justice Thomas, #2: IS A US SENATOR OR REPRESENTATIVE ALLOWED TO 'PARDON' OR DISMISS AN UNLAWFUL Virginia county contempt order for me missing an unlawful landlord-tenant no contact order hearing (US EXECUTIVE ORDER; Virginia as you know does not allow NC orders for landlord-tenant; no evidence substantiating need for an NC order anyway, I just asked for a rent refund) because I was very ill and in a Cov19 isolation ward, hypothermia, etc, and Kaiser, our largest health care agency, told the judge at least FIVE TIMES I was too sick to go anywhere and I would have endangered others. Was under LEGAL FEDERAL QUARANTINE. They even showed the judge the 3 dozen or so lab tests. and IV records. WHAT KIND OF MONSTERS ARE LOCAL JUDGES IN VIRGINIA, THESE DAYS? OR LOCAL COUNTY POLICE? Here is my background: US NAVY TOP 20 INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR, WHITE HOUSE MERIT RECOGNITION FOR SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 INTELLIGENCE WORK, HARVARD MBA HONORS, FORMER US DEPT OF ENERGY SES SERVICE, LIFE-LONG CLEAN CRIMINAL RECORD, mother of the first child hurt or disappeared over a mother's CIA work or reputation in US history (https://www.dcstrategicgroup.com/finding-evan) -- a tragedy. The supreme sacrifice of any parent serving this nation, to lose one's child over that service. Do you remember Nicole, the female firefighter hung in the woods and 'tormented to death' by pd and fpd, per the POST/Bezos, Fairfax and PWC Counties? Or the 20 yr old killed in less than week for missing a civil hearing? Or the black male dragged from his car by VSP on camera, and beaten? Or the Fairfax Co judge in prison for fabricating 'evidence' to send his ex-spouse to jail because he was angry with her? Or .. September 11? And the police harassment against some of us from intelligence testifying to the US Senate, other bodies? Because Virginia LE ran the security... It's 3 months now, and whilst Kaiser continues to tell the county and the county judge he is morally wrong, and in violation of US Federal Quarantine rules -- US EXECUTIVE ORDERS, CDC/HHS, WHO -- and plain moral common sense (should I kill myself or endanger the lives of other to make some prima donna judge feel important? HE VIOLATED SUPREMACY CLAUSE, MY FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS, US EXECUTIVE ORDERS, MY CONSTITUITONAL RIGHTS, RULES OF JUDICIAL IMPARTIALITY, USSC RULES MANDATING JUDGES TO GIVE EXTRA DILIGENCE AND TIME TO EXPLAIN TO VICTIMS NOT IN THE PRESENCE OF THE COURT, PISSING OFF THE COURT -- HE PUT ME IN CONTEMPT THAT SAME MORNING. HE KNEW BEFORE THE HEARING BECAUSE I TOLD HIM, HE DID NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO HOLD IT. AND I WOULD NOT HAVE ATTENDED FOR THAT REASON ALONE. THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE CONSTITUTION AND TITLE 18, SECTION 241-242 MEANS SOMETHING TO ME. BECAUSE I LOST MY CHILD DEFENDING SUCH THINGS. AND I'VE BEEN INJURED AND COULD NOT WALK FOR A YEAR, FOR THIS NATION - THAT DOES NOTHING TO DISMISS THIS FOR 3 MONTHS, AND I AM FORMER CIA, FORMER US MILITARY, ,SERVED WITH HONOR EVERY DAY IN EVERY CAPACITY, THE US; BUT IF I WERE AN ILLEGAL ALIEN CHURCHES OR COUNTIES WOULD HAVE PROVIDED FREE LEGAL AID TO CRUSH THIS MONSTER RIGHT AWAY. IF I WERE BLACK, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN RIOTS. I AM NOT GOING TO LEAVE HOSPITAL WHEN I AM SICK OR ANY QUARANTINE FOR ANY REASON, PERIOD. I AM NOT AN IMMORAL MONSTER. AND PLEASE SEE: https://www.insider.com/breaking-coronavirus-quarantine-in-us-jail-charges-fines-2020-3... ONE OF DOZENS TO HUNDREDS OF EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE BEING CHARGED UNDER US FEDERAL LAW, FOR VIOLATING COVID19 QUARANTINE. THIS COUNTY DELIBERATELY 'SET ME UP' IN A LOSE-LOSE SITUATION: 1 -- IF I OBEYED THE JUDGE'S UNLAWFUL - ILLEGAL ORDERS - AND ATTENDED THE SET UP RIGGED KANGAROO COURT LANDLORD TENANT HEARING; I VIOLATED MY CONSCIENCE AND US FEDERAL LAW AND CDC/HHS RULES AND *UNIVERSAL MORAL LAW. 2 -- IF I OBEYED FEDERAL LAW AND MORAL LAW, MY CONSCIENCE, AND THE HOSPITAL AND MY DOCTORS (#KAISER, VERY REPUTABLE AND ENGAGED IN #COVID19 r&d, AS I AM) QUARANTINE ORDERS (AND VIRGINIA DOH AS I CALLED THE VIRGINIA SECRETARY OF HEALTH); I ANGERED THIS UNREASONABLE, MENTALLY UNFIT, BIASED COUNTY JUDGE. HIS CONTEMPT HAS BLOCKED ALMOST ALL WORK IN MY FIELD, AND **RENEWAL OF FEDERAL CLEARANCE AT TSC-POLY LEVEL, COSTING ME WORK AT $150K - $250K OVER AND OVER AND OVER, SINCE SEPTEMBER. AND THE COPS' FAKE POSTINGS AND THE LANDLADY'S FAKE EVICTION POSTINGS -- ALL ILLEGAL,AND, I NEVER EVEN LIVED THERE IN MAY, I WAS THERE 4 DAYS IN LATE MARCH ONLY. WHEN SHE FILED SO THE US ATTORNEY IN MD SAID THAT WAS 'PERJURY' AND THE LANDLADY SHOULD BE PROSECUTED UNDER US FEDERAL FELONY PERJURY STATUTES. AND CONSPIRACY TO DEPRIVE OF CIVIL RIGHTS. **But yet, in reading USSC rulings, there are several factors that 'automatically' invalidate and revoke an inferior court contempt order, such as: 1 - JUDICIAL BIAS, 2 - FAILURE TO GRANT REASONABLE TIME TO EXPLAIN ABSENCE IN CASES WHERE THE 'OFFENSIVE' BEHAVIOR OCCURS OUT OF COURT SITE, AS IN A COVID19 ISOLATION WARD. (what is offensive about minding quarantine?) ; AND 3 - TREASON AND/OR SUCH BLATANT CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS THAT THE LIFE OF THE VICTIM OR PUBLIC LIVES ARE ENDANGERED. THIS IS PART OF THE ORIGINAL ARGUMENT USED BY MY COUSIN, #ROBERTKENNEDY. WHY CAN ROBERT USE SUCH ARGUMENTS, OR THE USSC MAKE SUCH RULINGS, BUT YET NO ONE ENFORCES THIS (YET) IN VIRGINIA? SHALL I JUST GO HANG IN THE WOODS LIKE NICOLE, ALSO? **There is more than 1 way to put a knee on someone's neck. And the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT has an obligation to intervene straight away, not when the victim develops cancer again, from the stress, or bone marrow disease is worsened, as with me; or their spotless career, or their company or their PANDEMIC CURE IS DESTROYED. NO JUDGE HAS THE RIGHT , OR COP TO DESTROY AN INNOCENT CITIZEN. AND ESPECIALLY, NOT OVER CIVIL LANDLORD-TENANT. I HAD MORE RIGHT TO AVOID THAT HEARING THAN HE HAD TO SCHEDULE IT OR TO ALLOW ANY FILINGS. AND HE HAD NO RIGHT NOT TO PROSECUTE THE POLICE INVOLVED UNDER CRIMINAL COLOR OF LAW CIVIL RIGHTS ABUSE, FAILURE TO PROTECT. So ... AFTER 3 MONTHS AND LOSING THE EQUIVALENT IN ROUGHLY $3 MILLION IN OPPORTUNITIES DUE TO THIS SLUR ON MY RECORD -- AND MY APARTMENT AND REPLACEMENT HOUSING AND A FAMILY OUT OF STATE WHO DEPENDS ON ME, SUFFERING IN THIS PANDEMIC ... if the President does not respond, what are my other options for pardon, please? OR DO I, AS WITH THE TORTURE AND SHAME OF THE NATION, NEED TO ELEVATE TO THE SECURITY COUNCIL AND EU OR OPT TO COME IN AND ENFORCE MY IHL RIGHTS?

If CDC - as articulated through US Presidential Executive Orders, specifically protecting tenants from any filings or court procedures by LANDLORDS for the duration of the 2020 Pandemic - is such a big deal it is commanding national press; and some areas, like the District of Colombia, are giving up to $10,000 to pay for arrears rents -- WHY DID THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ALLOW VIRGINIA COUNTY POLICE, AND EVEN A VIRGINIA COUNTY JUDGE TO VIOLATE THESE SAME US PRESIDENTIAL EXECUTIVE ORDERS-- as well as other federal /supremacy clause mandates like Federal Civil Rights, Constitutional and Bill of Rights protections .. due process, equal access to justice, fairness, judicial impartiality and rules of judicial behavior, reasonableness, medical (#kaiser) #pandemic FEDERAL #quarantine rules, and even Virginia State Government rules prohibiting no contact orders for landlords against tenants - to dare to put me in contempt, as a tenant merely requesting a rent refund and the ability to retrieve my belongings, for missing such an unlawful landlord-tenant hearing because I was in a Covid19 isolation ward? Sick, hypothermia, antibiotics for kidney infection, iv for dehydration and pain meds and systemic inflammation , etc? My own doctors and the emergency room staff told the county judge REPEATEDLY THAT I 'COULD NOT POSSIBLY ATTEND YOUR LANDLORD-TENANT HEARING.' But more importantly, I was not compelled to attend, anyway: the judge and that county deliberately thumbed their nose at all US Federal Pandemic protections, and in a height of hypocrisy, at the same time that the Virginia Governor and First Lady were in quarantine for Covid19 POS tests, and were warning everyone on tv to 'take this virus seriously!" DOES THE GOVERNOR REALIZE - BECAUSE HE'S NOT RETURNED CALLS, ONLY LEADERSHIP OF OTHER VENUES HAVE, AND USDOJ AND CONGRESSIONAL SUPPORT FOR ME -- HIS OWN COUNTY PD AND JUDGE CAN'T READ US EXECUTIVE ORDERS? SOUGHT TO DELIBERATEY ENDANGER THE PUBLIC EVEN FURTHER? DON'T KNOW THAT VIRGINIA IS A PART OF THE US AND MUST ABIDE BY ITS CONSTITUTIONAL & FEDERAL RIGHTS LAWS? (they're not a 'wish list" are they -- these are real 'laws' from our FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, right? AND JUST AS IN SELMA OR OTHER AREAS, WHERE ROBERT (my distant cousin) sent FEDERAL TROOPS IN TO FORCE POLICE, DEPUTIES, AND JUDGES TO OBEY FEDERAL LAW -- VIRGINIA MUST OBEY FEDERAL LAW THROUGH ITS OWN BEHAVIOR, NOT THROUGH FORCING VICTIMS INTO ASKING FOR REMEDY AFTER LOCAL VENUES WILLFULLY VIOLATE THEIR FEDERAL RIGHTS AND IRREPARABLY HARM OR KILL THEM. OR KILL OTHERS. Right? Does this county judge qualify for 'MENTAL INCOMPETENCE" then? If the county police 'bullied' and intimidated with (taped) threats of violence and even demands for money and 'business" -- WHAT IS THIS, ESCOBAR SLANG FROM VIRGINIA POLICE? -- from their private cell phones for months (!) after I left that apt (I was there less than 1 week and left when the police started bullying me, somehow overlooking the landlady's illegal drugs, child abuse, and covid19 pizza parties; or her statements like 'I DON'T CARE ABOUT #CORONA, I ONLY CARE ABOUT ME, #KARENTILLERSON!")... didn't the State of Virginia and #FBI , whose mandate is elimination of 'color of law police abuse,' 'federal civil rights violation,' US Title 18 Section 241-242 Civil Rights violation and Public Corruption, have a LEGAL MANDATE TO PROSECUTE THESE HARMS LONG BEFORE THE UNLAWFUL SEPTEMBER LANDLORD-TENANT HEARING? ONE OF THE WORST COUNTY PD -- LEAVING THE MOST VULGAR VOICEMAIL, SO THAT DC MPD AND MD STATE PD AND THE MD GOVERNOR'S OFFICE AND DC REP #NORTON AND OTHER CONGRESSIONAL OFFICES, INCL. SEN #KAINE SAID HE WAS A 'VERY BAD PERSON WHO SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO BECOME A POLICE OFFICER' -- EVEN SIGNED THE COUNTY CONTEMPT ORDER! But that violates federal judicial impartiality and federal civil rights law. __________________________________________________________________ ALL I'VE WANTED TO DO SINCE MARCH IS COMPLETE A VERY GOOD PANDEMIC ANTI-VIRAL. AND THE WORLD NEEDS THIS NOW. BECAUSE THE VACCINES DO NOT WORK AGAINST THE NEW STRAINS. And this stupid little immoral Virginia county - where FBI training HQ are located, coincidentally - has gone out of its way every single week to do something harmful. TO NOT FOLLOW US FEDERAL LAW. TO NOT OBEY THE SUPREMACY CLAUSE. TO NOT HONOR MY CONSTITUTIONAL OR FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS. TO VIOLATE ANY FAIRNESS STANDARDS -- EVEN ILLEGAL ALIENS THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS HELPING, FROM NATIONS WHERE YOU GET KILLED FOR SAYING 'NO' TO PAYING GANG PROTECTION .. THAT I ASKED, CANNOT BELIEVE THIS WAS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN IN AMERICA. THIS IS WHAT THEY CAME HERE TO ESCAPE -- POLICE AND JUDICIAL CORRUPTION. PROTECTION MONEY. POLICE ROBBING YOU OF ALL BELONGINGS OR DOING WHATEVER THEY WANT. ---IF #KAISER SAID I COULD NOT ATTEND, THAT JUDGE WAS HELD TO HIGHER STANDARDS AND NEEDED TO LISTEN: ESPECIALLY AS I WAS NOT IN HIS SIGHT. -- A US FEDERAL JUDGE PERSONAL FRIEND SAID 'IT SOUNDS LIKE HE'S PROTECTING HIS OWN CORRUPT POLICE." -- IT IS BAD ENOUGH, IN THIS NEWS STORY, THAT LANDLORDS ARE ATTEMPTING NOW, IN DECEMBER (NOT IN MARCH, WHEN THIS BALONEY ALL STARTED AGAINST ME, JUST FOR ASKING FOR MY MONEY BACK) ARE VIOLATING US EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND CDC FEDERAL ORDERS. BUT THIS IS A COUNTY JUDGE -- WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTING US CITIZENS AND WHOM ONE WOULD NEVER CONSIDER TO WILLFULLY VIOLATE US EXECUTIVE ORDERS. OR ... TO RETALIATE AGAINST A TENANT OR HOSPITAL PATIENT FOR NOT VIOLATING FEDERAL QUARANTINE RULES. ________________________________________________________ THAT'S LIKE PUTTING SOMEONE IN CONTEMPT FOR NOT GIVING ARMS TO TALIBAN OR ISIS. ISN'T IT? Or for not jumping off a cliff -- I 'might' survive the fall, but I would definitely be seriously injured. IF I AM SICK ENOUGH TO REQUIRE IV .. AND THE JUDGE WAS GIVEN THOSE EMERGENCY ROOM REPORTS BY MYSELF AND KAISER ... WHAT THE HELL WAS HE DRINKING OR SMOKING THAT DAY? AND WHY THE HELL SHOULD I HAVE MY REPUTATION OR EARNINGS DAMAGED BY HIS FELONY BEHAVIOR? USDOJ: 'EVERY COLOR OF LAW RIGHTS VIOLATION IS A FELONY."
