Falwell to Oversee Law School that Will Groom Future Republican Administration
Supreme Court Appointments
A BuzzFlash News Analysis
Not long ago, in an underreported speech, Justice Antonin "The Fixer" Scalia spoke about how the Constitution was derived from God, and, therefore, in essence, God was sometimes to be factored into Supreme court decisions. Scalia, a member of a powerful conservative Catholic sect called Opus Dei, was merely reconfirming the Bush Cartel commitment to governing America not through laws, but through laws interpreted through a theocratic prism. Just ask John Ashcroft, who regularly anoints himself, and has repeatedly declared that God is the King of America.
With all the right wing judges sitting on America's courts, you would think there would be enough of them to meet the Stepford-like loyalty oath to God-before-democracy required by the Bush Administration.
But apparently, there must be a shortage of judges hot-wired to heaven, because Jerry Falwell is opening a law school to create a sort of farm league for the God Squad judiciary.
In his most recent "Falwell Confidential" e-mail alert, Jerry breathlessly announces. (BuzzFlash is not making this up. This is an actual Falwell e-mail alert sent out on October 11th):
There you have it. In no time at all, Jerry Falwell will be producing little Antonin Scalia and William Rehnquist clones in his Liberty University Law School laboratory.
Of course, BuzzFlash is amazed that Mr. Falwell (we can't bring ourselves to call the charlatan Reverend) has the time to embark upon an enterprise of this magnitude. After all, he has been so busy inciting the Moslem world by calling the founder of their religion a "terrorist." I mean, when one man can provoke riots in Islamic countries, without a word of chastisement coming from the White House, you would think he might be a bit preoccupied. But not our Jerry!
The next step, BuzzFlash kids you not, will be Jerry obtaining "faith-based funding" (AKA religious pork) from his good friend Mr. Bush. Yes, those will be our taxpayer dollars going to support a flim-flam bigoted preacher. Heck, Pat Robertson has already gotten $500,000 of our money through a Bush Cartel "faith-based" grant. And we thought these guys were supposed to be on the outs with the White House after they suggested that gays and the "moral decay" of America were responsible for the September 11th terrorist attack. Silly us!
So, in a few years, if the Bush regime establishes permanent rule over America, expect to see Liberty School Law School graduates on the Supreme Court bench. You'll know them because they will be the ones with antennas protruding from their heads, so as better to receive ruling instructions from God -- or maybe it will be Karl Rove at the other end of the line.
