On Wednesday, the Supreme Court committed a treasonous act of cowardice. It threw out a case, on a mere technicality, that would have prevented our federal government from unconstitutionally censoring free speech through social media companies, as the Biden Administration has unlawfully done repeatedly, over such things as the COVID-19 pandemic and Hunter Biden’s laptop.  


According to the high court’s majority, the plaintiffs in the case, two state attorneys general and multiple social media users, lacked legal standing to bring the case in the first place. What should be carefully noted here, however, is that the high court’s minority, as well as all of the lower court judges, who incidentally ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, had absolutely no issue with the plaintiffs' legal standing. Indeed, one lower court judge, Terry Doughty, called the plaintiffs’ case against government censorship, “The most massive attack against free speech in United States' history!”


In his blistering dissent to the majority’s ruling, Justice Samuel Alito excoriated his fellow justices for “shirking” their responsibility in “one of the most important free speech cases” ever to reach the Supreme Court. Alito went on to say that the government’s censorship of free speech “was blatantly unconstitutional” and that our “country may come to regret the Court’s failure to say so.”


In what can only be explained as an effort to escape a political backlash, Chief Justice John Roberts, as he often does, persuaded so-called conservative justices, in this case, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, to join him and the court’s three liberal justices in ducking the court’s fundamental responsibility; namely, to protect and preserve our Constitution. Apparently, the political preservation of our high court is far more important to our Chief Justice than protecting and preserving our God-given and inalienable constitutional rights and freedoms.


Wednesday’s treasonous act of cowardice by our Supreme Court is just one more confirmation of the affirmation of the late Ronald Reagan. President Reagan always insisted: “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” 


Here’s the painful truth; our government has become a beastly bureaucratic behemoth. It is totally corrupt, from top to bottom and from the inside out. Our nation is being hanged by the neck from all three branches of our government, none of which even remotely resemble any longer what our Founding Fathers envisioned them to be.


Though most Americans refuse to face this frightening fact, our government can neither be reformed nor redeemed. It can only be overthrown and replaced, which is exactly what our Founding Fathers said should be done to a government that has ceased to fulfill its fundamental duty, which is to protect and preserve the God-given, inalienable, and constitutional rights of the people. Unfortunately, there is hardly a revolutionary to be found among today's Americans, but mostly Democrats and Republicans who believe that electing politicians to sit in the deck chairs of our sinking ship of state will save it from a fast approaching Titanic-like fate.
