Here’s my criterion for justices to the California Supreme Court: That they be good justices. That’s it. I don’t care about their race, their creed, their color, their sex. They could be Martians.
Just: Interpret the California Constitution — and, when necessary, the U.S. Constitution — according to the actual words, not according to some nutty judicial philosophy, whether liberal or conservative.
Looks like that’s not what we’re going to get from Gov. Jerry Brown. According to Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, who talked with him, “He’s interested in ethnic diversity, he’s looking at academic professor types and also for someone young who will stay a while.”
Not a word about the judicial temperament of the new justice. Nothing about following the state and U.S. constitutions. Nothing about having even a drop of “good old common horse sense,” a quality that my late father, a district judge in Michigan for 25 years, said was essential to being a good judge.
So we’ll get another ideologue who will twist the law to fit the straightjacket of the regnant legal ideology of cultural Marxism.
So we’ll get another Rose Bird, an appointment when Jerry last was governor so bad she was kicked off the court by voters.
Appropriately, the state Supreme Court is housed in the Earl Warren Building and Courthouse (pictured above), named after the California governor and attorney general who helped put more than 100,000 innocent Japanese-American citizens into concentration camps. Warren said at the time, “”When we are dealing with the Caucasian race we have methods that will test the loyalty of them. But when we deal with the Japanese, we are on an entirely different field.”
This racist is the model for “justice” in California. Below is a poster ordering the loyal Japanese-Americans into the camps. Notice that it deports to the camps “both alien and non-alien.” There’s another word for “non-alien”: citizen.
