The Supreme Court just abandoned the Constitution.
They buckled to the Biden administration and the radical Left.
And now Biden’s Deep State will have free reign to terrorize Americans.
You may remember the FISA Court as the secret court that approved the Russia-gate witch hunt against former President Trump and his associates.
They used the phony Steele Dossier as a pretext to go after their political enemies, and they did so in total secret, without even Congress knowing about it.
Groups from both parties have been challenging the secrecy of the FISA Court, and one lawsuit finally made its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court.
But sadly, the U.S. Supreme Court turned its back on the Constitution and refused to take up the case.
Now, Joe Biden’s FISA Court has free reign to hunt down Americans as domestic terrorists.
This includes law-abiding gun owners, parents who do not want Critical Race Theory taught in their children’s schools, and people who oppose COVID restrictions.
According to a report from Reuters, “The ACLU has said the public has a right to know notable decisions made by the court, sometimes called the FISA court after the law under which it was created, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. The ACLU said the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment, which guarantees free speech and freedom of the press, provides a limited right of public access to the FISA court’s most significant decisions.”
Of course, Joe Biden did everything he could to keep the FISA Court secret. He did this because he plans to use the FISA Court to go after his political enemies.
As Reuters reported, “President Joe Biden’s administration urged the Supreme Court not to hear the appeal.”
There were two justices on the Supreme Court who dissented, arguing that the Biden Administration shouldn’t be allowed to hide their abuses of power.
These justices came from opposite ends of the spectrum – conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch, a Trump appointee, and liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
This alliance may have surprised many people, but it’s actually nothing new.
In fact, in 2019, The Week reported that Gorsuch and Sotomayor were forming a civil libertarian wing of the court, and coming together on issues like freedom of speech and the Fourth Amendment.
According to The Week, “One such unexpected line may be developing in the high court now: a civil libertarian alliance between Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first nominee, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor.”
Gorsuch and Sotomayor tried to take on Biden’s FISA Court, but unfortunately they were voted down 7-2.
This means the FISA Court will continue to have unlimited power and no accountability.
Congress needs to step in and fix the FISA Court before it ruins American freedom forever.
One way to fix it would be to change how FISA judges are selected. Currently, Chief Justice John Roberts gets to pick them unilaterally, and they don’t have to get approved by anyone else.
Of course, conservatives know how untrustworthy and anti-liberty Justice Roberts is.
But the best way to fix the FISA Court would be to bring transparency to it. The American public has a right to know what its government is doing.
Otherwise, the “democracy” that the establishment claims we live in is not really a democracy at all.
