What If Bill O'Reilly Really Were On the Supreme Court?

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy
If I’m on the Supreme Court, as I should be, I say what is the down side of having somebody prove who they are [when they come to vote]?

--Bill O'Reilly, Quoted on Think Progress, emphasis mine, EC

If Billo were on the Supreme Court, he might harass Ruth Badar Ginsburg as he, in fact, harassed a Fox producer:
"So anyway I'd be rubbing your big boobs and getting your nipples really hard, kinda' kissing your neck from behind...and then I would take the other hand with the falafel thing and I'd just put it on your p***y but you'd have to do it really light, just kind of a tease business..." --as quoted in a sexual harassment suit filed against him by a Fox News producer, 2004 (Source)

OCTOBER 13--Hours after Bill O'Reilly accused her of a multimillion dollar shakedown attempt, a female Fox News producer fired back at the TV star today, filing a lawsuit claiming that he subjected her to repeated instances of sexual harassment and spoke often, and explicitly, to her about phone sex, vibrators, threesomes, masturbation, the loss of his virginity, and sexual fantasies. Below you'll find a copy of Andrea Mackris's complaint, an incredible page-turner that quotes O'Reilly, 55, on all sorts of lewd matters. Based on the extensive quotations cited in the complaint, it appears a safe bet that Mackris, 33, recorded some of O'Reilly's more steamy soliloquies. For example, we direct you to his Caribbean shower fantasies. While we suggest reading the entire document, TSG will point you to interesting sections on a Thailand sex show, Al Franken, and the climax of one August 2004 phone conversation. (22 pages)
Here's a link to the lawsuit. The Fox liar network apparently "settled out of court" --Fox-speak for they paid her to shut up!
"And guys, if you exploit a girl, it will come back to get you. That's called 'karma.'" --in his book, "The O'Reilly Factor For Kids," 2004 (Source)
If Billo ever got SCOTUS, you could count on him to write one or two word decisions: ridiculous, SHUT UP!!!

For case law, Billo could not be expected to cite anything more challenging than Perry Mason or Judge Judy. Justice Billo will dispatch free speech: AN ATTACK ON ME BY THE LOONY LEFT! But it doesn't get any loonier than Billo Blowhard, the loudmouth that proved mankind evolved from simpler forms of life. Eat your heart out, Kansas school boards! Billo proves Darwin. Billo is the aggressive ape from which Bush evolved. There's your proof!

If Billo somehow gets on the high court, he will address what he must surely believes are flaws in our judicial system that confines justices to the law --statutes, case law and precedent! A Justice Billo will open things up a little. He will cite anything --probably comic books or worse: his own FAUX Network! A better source are instances of his own stupidity, many of them documented by Media Matters, Billo's favorite website.
During the December 13 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly questioned the decision by Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards to have actor/director Tim Robbins travel with him on the campaign trail, saying," Tim Robbins is such a radical guy. Why would John Edwards use him? I don't get it." He then played an excerpt from Robbins' December 12 speech in Iowa City, Iowa, in which Robbins said, "What if, instead of 24/7 coverage of the most recent pop star's fall from grace, we were to see 24/7 reporting of veterans returning from Iraq?" In response, Fox News contributor Jane Hall said Robbins' "criticism of the media ... is valid," to which O'Reilly replied: "But Von Ribbentrop in the Nazi hierarchy made valid points, Jane."

Nazi Foreign Minister Joachim Von Ribbentrop was indicted for crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity by the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal. Ribbentrop was found guilty on all counts and executed. The tribunal found that Ribbentrop had "participated in aggressive plans against Czechoslovakia"; "played a particularly significant role in the diplomatic activity which led up to the attack on Poland"; was aware of or helped plan attacks against other countries, "urged the Italians to put into effect a ruthless occupation policy in Yugoslavia and Greece," and "played an important part in Hitler's 'final solution' of the Jewish question." The tribunal concluded that Ribbentrop "was in sympathy with all the main tenets of the National Socialist creed." O'Reilly did not cite any "valid points" made by Ribbentrop.

--Media Matters

Justice Billo will cite the Bible and specifically the book of "Revelations" which he thinks was written: "WHAT --FIVE THOUSAND YEARS AGO??"

Until Justice Billo assumes the high court, we'll just have to content ourselves with Justice Scalia's absurdities which pale compared to Justice Billo. Years ago, I denounced Antonin Scalia's backward thinking, his proclivity to mistake premises for conclusions, his fondness for the circulus en probando fallacy.
Justice Antonin Scalia, who wrote "to count first and rule upon legality afterwards is not a recipe for producing election results that have the public acceptance democratic stability requires."

--CNN Transcripts, December 11, 2000, Supreme Court Bush v. Gore

It matters not to Scalia that since 5th Century B.C.E.. the citizens of Athens dared to count all the votes BEFORE putting leaders in office. Unless my profs lied to me, that's the way elections are supposed to work. In a Brave New World, however, computers have made vote theft at lot easier, more efficient, more...uh...well more "white collar".

In 1948, poor Luis Salas of central Texas, whom I met and interviewed about his role in the historic "election" of LBJ to the US Senate, had to resort to digging up the names of dead people and writing them in by hand on a paper tab sheet. It was dirty work, but somebody had to do it. There was an election to steal!
"If Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.'" –FOX News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, after San Francisco voted to ban military recruiters from city schools, Nov. 8, 2005 (Source) (Read more stupid Bill O'Reilly quotes)
As a justice of the Supreme Court, Billo should be required to apologize prior to his confirmation for how he lied to the nation about Bushco:
"If the Americans go in and overthrow Saddam Hussein and it's clean, he has nothing, I will apologize to the nation, and I will not trust the Bush Administration again, all right?" -on finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, March 18, 2003 (Source
Now --if I were a judge, I would give O'Reilly a "Judge Judy" sentence. He would be ordered by the court to apologize to the Iraqi people. He would be required to go to Iraq and apologize personally, individually, to the people of that nation who have suffered over one million unnecessary deaths, murder at the hand of Billo's hero, the war criminal: George W. Bush!
You’ve got stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night and they can vote." –to "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart, Sept. 22, 2004 (Source)
Justice Billo must have been referring to his own "dopy show".

People are catching onto Billo. Following is a streaming player with several Billo "confrontations" in which his tactics --strawmen, bullying, misstating positions, loaded questions, et al --are increasingly evident. These interviews are notable in that Billo is finding it harder to get away with it. People who fight back are winning. Many guests are making Billo look like the lying idiot that he truly is.

Billo, in you and in George W. Bush, is found every prejudice, every fallacy, every pernicious, hateful lie that has undermined and militated against every good thing that was ever in any way associated with the US by anyone at any time. Billo, you are vile! You shame even the shameful Fox network!
