Supreme Court Justice Commits Sedition By Telling People to Revolt Over Income Taxes


Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is now actively calling for disobeying the government, as during a recent speech he told students that if taxes get too high, they should revolt.

According to CBSDC:

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd of law school students that if taxes in the U.S. become too high then people “should revolt.”

Speaking at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, the longest-serving justice currently on the bench was asked by a student about the constitutionality of the income tax, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

Scalia responded that the government has the right to implement the tax, “but if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.”

When a sitting Supreme Court justice tells anyone to revolt against their government, that’s a problem. It is difficult to tell if Scalia was snarky or serious, but with his record, and loyal service to the Koch brothers it’s likely that he was serious.

Last year, Democrats introduced a bill that would have opened the door to impeachment for Justices Scalia and Thomas. Democrats are seeking mandatory ethics rules for all Supreme Court justices. Scalia and Thomas have been frequently featured guests at Koch conferences. Their conflict of interest involving campaign finance laws has been obvious, but neither justice has felt the need to recuse themselves from these cases.

Justice Scalia puts his partisan views ahead of the Constitution. He has written opinions that favor criminalizing gay sex, “Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, as scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children’s schools, or as boarders in their home. They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive.”

Scalia has defended torture, “I am astounded at the world reaction to Guantanamo,” he declared in response to a question. “We are in a war. We are capturing these people on the battlefield. We never gave a trial in civil courts to people captured in a war. War is war and it has never been the case that when you capture a combatant, you have to give them a jury trial in your civil courts. It’s a crazy idea to me.”

Scalia is a partisan hack who is serving a lifetime appointment on the highest court in the land. He may be the worst Supreme Court justice in the history of the nation, and now he is calling for people to disobey their government.

    • I would love to see that. However, I'll only believe it when I see it. This country is descending into hell and it's not on a slow train.

    • The House has to vote to impeach & though they are both guilty of "High Crimes and misdemeanors" This House will NEVER vote to impeach.

    • Common-law is not what we have in common. Common-law is a system, philosophy, and strictly adherent to precedent law.

      All statutes; whether Federal, State, County, or Municipal governments; are laws; not based in authority alone, such as Civil Code, (what one should do or not do), but morality. One needs to read the last few lines of President Washington's address for concurrence.

      Common-law is, from its jurisprudence, the history and practice of law is rooted in the word "ought." Ought is a moral obligation, from the Greek Moral Philosophy, which the Romans translated into ethics.

      In my work I have uncovered much falling away from the basic truth of a republic; a desire to do good, for the public good, (res publica).

      Are you familiar with the Court's Rules of Civil Procedure? Well in 1931, American courts were so corrupt, the Judiciary was at risk. The corruption was so bad, the Rules, had to re-instituted in 1938.

      Seek wisdom; the understanding of knowledge

      • How do you edit a post before review and acceptance?

        Or since this will be reviewed, would you mind correcting the grammar, as regards G. Washington. It's also the last few paragraphs, regarding morality and religion, quote unquote, "does not policy equally enjoin this?

        Thank you,

  • So if we retake the House and hold the Senate, can we move this forward? That is reason enough to vote Democratic..these two and the CJ should never have been allowed near the Supreme Court.

  • Sounds to me that he should be put in front of a firing squad and shot because he is trying to wage war in The United States, just because he's a Supreme Court Justice shouldn't make a difference. Everyone that can should pay income taxes and the filthy rich should pay the same percentage as the working class.

    • That's the problem. If billionaires pay the same percentage it is not fair. If I make 50K per year and pay %10 that leaves me with 45K disposable income for rent, food, gas, cable, etc. If Warren Buffett pays %10 of 1,000,000. That leaves him 900K disposable income for rent, food , gas etc. Not to mention the organizational perks of wealth- transportation, galas, access to networks, free items, etc.
      We desperately need tax reform. While i agree with you that everyone should pay taxes (Even those on welfare and in prison so that they can be a part of this democracy) there needs to be a graduated income tax- perhaps 1% for people below the poverty line to 5% for those in the lower middle and 7% for those in the higher middle,,,etc. Personally I think you should be able to deduct 2 children or two pregnancies (in case of multiple births), people should not be rewarded for overpopulating. My 2 cents.

  • This partisan hack who thinks he is above the law needs to go quickly! He makes a mockery of all the honorable justices that went before him and serve with him now! He is the Marie Antoinette of the Supreme court flaunting his privilege and power in the face of we the people!
    Clarence Thomas the mute stooge of big business whould never have been confirmed. The two are despicable treasonous henchman for the rich!

  • Why isn't this kind of stuff being investigated by Issa? Just kidding. His wife works for the Koch owned Heritage Foundation besides all that was mentioned here. He and Thomas need to go. Hopefully, after the elections we can work on that.

  • May God Richly Bless Antonin Scalia with a very very Long life on the US Supreme Court He has kept the USA from going under

  • The Supreme Court 5, why isn't NSA, CIA or the FBI investigating these 'people', they are the ones behind the destruction of our Country. I get that they accept Lobbyist money and vote to destroy the Constitution not this! Is sedition an impeachable offense?

  • Scalia is testing the high Court with that statement and likely feels the persons who paid the 5 US Supreme Court Justice to allow Citizens United to be a person and recently passing unlimited donations to fix elections. If the people don't demand Impeachment then the country will be taken over. This is a Coup D'etat by wealthy Americans.

  • I think I'd want to know if he meant a *tax* revolt, which is basically a non-violent refusal to tender one's payment (and ends, usually, in garnishment of salary and seizure of assets), or insurrection. Both are advocacy of lawbreaking, but only the latter is sedition. It seems clear he is already taking part in public corruption, and though, under present circumstances, he cannot be impeached, he can nonetheless be prosecuted for federal felonies on the same basis as anyone else. Theoretically, he could be sitting in Big Max and still voting on cases. I am hoping this would be too shameless even for Republicans.

  • U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 115 › § 2385
    18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government

    Whoever...advises...or teaches the necessity, desirability, or propriety, of destroying the government of The United States...Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

    The right wing blogs and on-line forums are full of people who routinely advocate for, or agitate for
    rebellion in one form or another. These sorts of comments are readily found in rt wing pro-gun forums; but certainly in anti-tax and anti-government web sites and blogs.

    While Scalia may not have literally meant a violent rebellion against the tax laws, his recommendation will play into the fertile minds of domestic extremists.

    Time to bring back the Sedition Act of 1798. John Adams was right.

    • Quite frankly that law seems to be unconstitutional in and of itself.

      No law can be made by representatives of the people that would prohibit said people from removing that government by their will.

      If government refused to step down and allow new elections to be held immediately then the people by the constitution retain the right to use whatever force is necessary to remove them, including so called second amendment remedies.

      You and the government must understand that they enjoy their privilege by the will of the people. when said people decide they have had enough then the government is to either adapt or be replaced. There is no option for them to refuse to do so.

      To believe otherwise is to engage in sedition against the only government in this nation that matters, "We The People".
