This is the last installment in a series on the nadir, or low point, of the U.S. Supreme Court. This was the period from 1937 to 1944, when the court stopped protecting the Constitution’s limits on the federal government. Our Constitution has never fully recovered.
The first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth installments related to how the justices initially tried to balance the demands of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal with the Constitution’s rules. In 1937, however, Roosevelt began to replace sitting justices with New Deal enthusiasts who had no prior judicial credentials. The remodeled bench successively discarded limits on federal spending, federal property ownership, and federal economic regulation. In at least one case, it abandoned habeas corpus and the right to a trial by jury.
This final installment addresses the court’s role in what was, aside from slavery, the most egregious violation of civil rights in U.S. history. It adds some observations on how the court’s abysmal record from 1937 to 1944 continues to affect us today.
A six-year cold case investigation into the betrayal of Anne Frank has identified a surprising suspect in the mystery of how the Nazis found the hiding place of the famous diarist in 1944.
Anne and seven other Jews were discovered by the Nazis on Aug. 4 of that year, after they had hid for nearly two years in a secret annex above a canal-side warehouse in Amsterdam. All were deported and Anne died in the Bergen Belsen camp at age 15.
A team that included retired U.S. FBI agent Vincent Pankoke and around 20 historians, criminologists and data specialists identified a relatively unknown figure, Jewish notary Arnold van den Bergh, as a leading suspect in revealing the hideout.
Some other experts emphasised that the evidence against him was not conclusive.
Investigating team member Pieter van Twisk said the crucial piece of new evidence was an unsigned note to Anne’s father Otto found in an old post-war investigation dossier, specifically naming Van den Bergh and alleging he passed on the information.
The note said Van den Bergh had access to addresses where Jews were hiding as a member of Amsterdam’s wartime Jewish Council and had passed lists of such addresses to the Nazis to save his own family.
Unelected health officials in the state of Washington have filed a bill that would involve deploying “strike force” teams to round up and “involuntarily detain” unvaccinated families.
The proposed agenda, called WAC 246-100-040, was revealed during a recent Zoom meeting by the Washington State Board of Health. The bill would amend state law to allow residents as young as five to be detained by the state and sent to Covid-19 quarantine camps.
The proposed revision under Washington’s Communicable and Certain Other Disease Act outlines specific “Procedures for isolation or quarantine” that are incredibly tyrannical and discriminate against unvaccinated people.
A local health officer would be granted power to “issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine.”
The bill further states that health officers would need to provide documentation proving that unvaccinated citizens of Washington subject to detention have denied “requests for medical examination, testing, treatment, counselling, vaccination, decontamination of persons or animals, isolation, quarantine and inspection and closure of facilities” before they would be given the thumbs up on sending people to the covid camps.
According to reports, the amendment would also allow health officers to deploy law enforcement to assist with the arrest of Washington residents who fail to comply.
The Washington State Board of Health may soon amend state law to authorize the involuntary detainment of residents as young as 5 years old in Covid-19 “internment camps” for failing to comply with the state’s experimental vaccine mandate.
WAC 246-100-040, a proposed revision to include Covid protocol under the state’s Communicable and Certain Other Diseases act, outlines “Procedures for isolation or quarantine.” The measure would allow local health officers at “his other sole discretion” to “issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine.”
Health officers are required to provide documentation proving unvaccinated residents subject to detention have denied “requests for medical examination, testing, treatment, counseling, vaccination, decontamination of persons or animals, isolation, quarantine and inspection and closure of facilities” prior to involuntarily confinement in quarantine facilities, the resolution states.
The amended law would also allow health officers to deploy law enforcement officials to assist with the arrest of uncompliant Washington residents.
We can now say with confidence that at least five of the news stories that the fact checkers falsely deemed “conspiracy theories” in 2020 were validated in 2021.
With the exception of the 5G issue, LeoHohmann.com reported on every one of these conspiracies in 2020 and 2021. The corporate-funded “fact checkers” labeled us fear mongers, conspiracy theorists and wing nuts. Now that they’ve all been proven true, does that mean we get to take off our tin foil hats? Of course not! Now we are reporting on other controversial issues, such as the coming digital, programmable currency that will replace cash and the coming social-credit scoring system modeled after that already in place in China. These are stories that the mainstream press shuns; but don’t worry, they will break the “news” for us a year or two from now, when it’s too late to do anything about it.
