Oyez! Mr. Justice Kavanaugh

Harry M. Covert

With all profound respect, it is a joy at this historic moment to stand, read and repeat the magnificent call to order for the opening of the Supreme Court of the United States.


For any person or persons not aware, a full complement of lifetime justices were robed and seated at 10 o’clock Eastern Daylight Savings Time this morning. They heard these electrifying words:


"The Honorable, the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! All persons having business before the Honorable, the Supreme Court of the United States, are admonished to draw near and give their attention, for the Court is now sitting. God save the United States and this Honorable Court."


The most prominent attention-getter for this session is Associate Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. If tradition was followed, and it probably was, he was the ninth to enter the esteemed premises as the newest justice.


To the delight of most Americans, the 114th justice is the celebrated person of the moment, and The Court of all courts has started its deliberations for 2018.


Mr. Justice Kavanaugh is the seventh Marylander to serve. Virginia has had 10 justices and ranks second overall, while New York State leads the way with 13. All right, that’s enough with statistics for a while.


Most federal courts open sessions with the marshals or bailiffs in monologues. State courts of all levels follow similar “oyez, oyez.”


It is an impressive formality as all those in the courtroom stand. None dare sit or kneel as “her and his honors” enter the halls of justice and bang their gavels.


Despite the despicable ordeal Justice Kavanaugh endured to receive his seat, he will distinguish himself.


All the jibber jabber from the dishonorable, non-loyal opposition may not fade in the immediate future. The foolish threats to destroy the court standing will continue to ruin the paid mob and inconsolable minority in the Congress and deep state losers.


To smear the Supreme Court is revolting. It was surprising to see the dimwits on the Supreme Court steps, and the one atop the Lady Justice statue of the court last Saturday.


Protestors and protestings are accepted as free speech and assembly. When the out-of-control participants become mobs and mobsters, the time is ripe to protect law and order. Lock them up and send them to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, for observation. Maybe they should be inoculated with microchips for criminal records.


Of course, retribution for the fatuous puerile outbursts will only mean teevee time for them. The nation is awakened now. Just how long the trouble makers will be allowed to disrupt the public good is questionable.


The dangerous routine of publicly confronting those with opposing political views has gone on long enough. One day soon, an intruder is going to learn the hard way for all to see when she or he accosts someone they don’t like. It will be a good story to write, “wham, bam” with black eyes, bloody or broken schnozes and visits to emergency rooms.


Recall the older man last Saturday? He was holding up a sign at the Supreme Court and a childish girl with ragged shorts dancing around intimidating him. Is this the future of the nation? Not really. An undisciplined moron was lucky that time.


Seriously, a call to arms is at the ready. Don’t take it anymore.
