For Bush faction, “Scalito” completes criminal circle 

In nominating Samuel A. Alito.of the Third Circuit Court to the Supreme Court, the George W. Bush administration has outdone itself in its fervent attempt at “replicating Rehnquist.” It has, in fact, replicated Scalia. Alito is called “Scalito” for his similarity to the malignant Antonin Scalia in ideology and temperament, and deep ties to the Bush administration. This alone spells doom for democracy and the rule of law in the United States.

As was the case with Iran-Contra insider John Roberts, and George W. Bush confidante and 9/11 insider Harriet Miers, Alito brings his own skeleton closet—the most important details of which undoubtedly will not be mentioned or addressed by congressional Democrats (who, terminally, dwell on wedgy secondary issues such as abortion, gender/civil rights, and religion, while ignoring larger issues, such as treason).

From 1985 to 1987, Alito was the deputy assistant to Attorney General Ed Meese. This places Alito deep within the Reagan-Bush machine, a participant in the crimes involving the Meese Department of Justice, including all aspects of Iran-Contra and the theft of PROMIS software (also see). For obvious reasons, “Scalito” was placed on the Third Circuit Court by George H.W. Bush, where he has faithfully wreaked havoc for years.

It goes without saying that any Supreme Court pick from a Bush administration will destroy what is left of abortion rights. In 1991, in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Alito voted to uphold a Pennsylvania law requiring women seeking abortions to first obtain permission from their husbands. So much for Roe v. Wade.

The Bush machine’s list of extreme right-wing/Federalist Society cover agent judges is long and well known. Having been denied the trick of placing family friend Harriet Miers on to the highest court, Bush has simply gone back to the original list, giving the right-wing base exactly what it needs to distract focus from the Plame-Libby-Rove-Cheney fiasco and continuing failure in Iraq.
