Who is guilty of contempt for the US Supreme Court? The entire world
Senators Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and many others have said no person under a criminal investigation as Donald Trump is should be able to nominate a Supreme Court judge.

Supreme Court justices too can be impeached. The 5 Republican justices are all serial judicial murderers who have turned down copious requests for mercy from prisoners.

Justice Roberts wrote a brief defending torture. Neil Gorsuch is a dovehunter, something which would disqualify him in 19th century Britain from judging others. It was felt that frequent killing of animals made one insensitive to suffering.

Alito promised to recuse himself re his Vanguard stock and broke his word. Clarence Thomas was a Monsanto attorney. He's on the court because of the mysterious plane crash death of Missouri Democrat Senate candidate Jerry Litton. President Carter had said he thought Litton might be president one day. John Danforth, Republican, was then elected and promoted Thomas as a candidate to G H W Bush.
Justice Kennedy's son had a questionable relationship with Trump. He worked for Deutsche Bank for 10 years which loaned money to Trump who could not get loans from American banks because of his many defaults.

The current court has 5 Catholic Americans who are 22% of the population but 55.5% of the court. Catholic bishops in the US have been willing to elect warmongers and serial executioners and hunters to the White House because of their narrow definition of reverence for life. The 3 Jewish Americans. 2% of the population are 33% of the court. It is time for more religious diversity. It would be good for the next nominee to be Hindu, Buddhist or Muslim, for example. Women are a majority of the population and should be a majority on the court.

Donald Trump has allowed the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation to select the list from which the justice nominee is picked.

We are the only country in the world in the world allowing 5 men, pawns of the rich, to erase the will of the vast majorit of Americans. These unelected men serve for life and make us a pentocracy not a democracy.

Who is guilty of contempt for this court? The entire world.

It is time to elect justices and to limit them to 9 or 18 year terms.
