For over half a year, I have spent what little remaining energy I have and an enormous amount of time (while sacrificing needed income), in trying to incorporate Equal Justice for Victims as a national, functioning, non-profit, tax exempt organization. This article describes just
Having devoted most of my time and limited energy to the complex now-proceeding incorporation of Equal Justice for Victims as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to fight for justice and public safety, I was unable to post
For many in his base, when President Trump signed the huge “omnibus” appropriations bill in March, this validated their cynicism that it is futile to vote Republican or to vote at all. I disagree. Although I view Republicans as corrupt
In his January 30 State of the Union address, President Trump missed a chance to explain to the largest audience he can ever have what the “immigration debate” is really about. Widely mislabeled, it is a political fight about
I previously posted articles on the “Pervasive Political Rot of the American Government vs. Capital Punishment.” As of now, it is a very open question whether President Trump will be able to “win” the war against those who wish to
This brief article explains why victims’ families opposed to capital punishment are not only unrepresentative, but also should have no say in whether a murderer is to be executed. Capital punishment
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT and the FUTILITY of REFERENDA By Lester Jackson With time growing short and the abolition of capital punishment guaranteed if Hillary Clinton is elected to place justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, death penalty supporters are
THE MISSING INGREDIENT
A NOTE FROM LESTER JACKSON, Ph.D. To provide for public safety and justice for victims of homicides and their loved ones, I will soon post an article proposing a drastic change in strategy for supporters of capital punishment. My new article
The Pervasive Political Rot of the American Government vs. Capital Punishment by Lester Jackson, Ph.D. Most followers of this site are painfully aware that, despite consistent public support, capital punishment has been turned by judges
The assertion that capital punishment is unfair long has been a rallying cry for champions of duly convicted depraved murderers whose guilt is not in doubt. The notion that the death penalty is not and
The filibuster has not prevented tyranny. Few understand this better than crime victims, who know that the filibuster never stopped the appointment of judicial tyrants whose notion of “justice” is to torture victims for the benefit of violent criminals. The war against victims is but one example of pervasive tyranny. Others include quotas, and the assault s on religion, property and health care. Republicans have failed tragically to meaningfully oppose tyranny, and often have enabled it. If RINOs are not replaced by a genuine opposition party, nothing can save the Constitution – or the representative democracy and freedoms that are the heritage of this country.
Many conservatives are frustrated that their leaders play by gentlemanly Marquis of Queensberry rules while leftists ruthlessly attack with thuggish Alinksy rules. For example, Clarence Thomas is justifiably viewed by conservatives as a courageous defender of the Constitution and as one of the best justices, if not the best. Yet he has made televised comments lending respect and legitimacy to extremist liberal activists who dishonestly and arrogantly have shredded the Constitution to further their ideological agenda.
The Obama view of justice: Protect the most depraved and violent criminals, while torturing the decent. Prosecute the prematurely sick; bend over backwards to be “fair” to mass murderers. There is something scandalously wrong with what is mislabeled our criminal “justice” system — and little basis for public confidence in the judges and prosecutors who administer it

Repeatedly in writing, Thomas and Scalia have questioned the integrity of their colleagues; and accused them of arrogance, lawlessness, license, illegitimate abuse of power, basing decisions on no more than their own personal values, contempt for the Constitution, sowing confusion rather than providing clarity, hypocritically pretending to defend the weak against the powerful while actually favoring the powerful at the expense of the weak, protecting “inconsequential” expression while disdaining the “heart” of the first amendment (the right to criticize officeholders), poisonous and pernicious racism and sexism, belief in black inferiority, placing at risk the lives of good innocent people in order to save the lives of the most vicious and depraved, placing the welfare of terrorists above the lives of soldiers combatting them, mandating “infanticide” (the barbaric killing of “human children”), and numerous other sins.
When pro-murderer justices seek — often successfully — to focus upon criminals rather than crimes, the result is to grant certain perpetrators greater protection against punishment for their brutality than others who commit identical or less serious acts.
As detailed elsewhere, pro-murderer media suppression of the truth has played a major role in enabling a wholesale evisceration of capital punishment. Justice Sonia Sotomayor recently provided a graphic example, one that would be excruciatingly painful to survivors of murder victims if they knew about it. Many people unfamiliar with the practices and philosophy of the Supreme Court would very likely be shocked to learn just what values some justices hold.
The history of liberal judicial activism has largely been a history of Republican handiwork — in case after case after case, impacting all areas of law (including public safety, crime and capital punishment).
The most important reason for conservatives to support Mitt Romney is that he is not Barack Obama, period. Never before has there been an American president ashamed of his own country. Never before has there been a president with complete contempt for the political and economic principles that made it great.
The ObamaCare decision exposed the Supreme Court as an emperor without clothes. Hoping for deliverance from ObamaCare, many usual critics defended the Court. But with a new term fast approaching, a month before a critical election, Chief Justice Roberts’ handiwork should be remembered as a final wake-up call to consider, once and for all, whether the Court and judicial review merit respect, acceptance and legitimacy.
Upon Paul Ryan’s vice presidential selection, supporters noted his objection that Chief Justice Roberts had “contort[ed] logic and reason to come up with [the ObamaCare] ruling.” Such contortion is nothing unusual except for one thing. The Supreme Court, which normally operates in obscurity, could not escape a glaring spotlight this time, affording a rare opportunity to inform the public about the dark side of what many justices do. This raises questions concerning the utility of elections, what remains of our actual Constitution, the rule of law, and public acceptance of judicial review.
