NY Governor Threatens To Sue SCOTUS

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) promised to sue if the Supreme court overturns Roe v. Wade.

Cuomo stated, “We now need to codify Roe v. Wade, which will actually increase the protections in New York, God forbid they do what they intend to do, which is overturn Roe v. Wade. I want to get it done before the Supreme Court does that. Because I don’t want any gap in a woman’s right to protection and we have a better legal case when the Supreme Court acts. Because I will sue when the Supreme Court acts, and I want the New York State law in place.”

  • barry1817

    so is he planning to go to what court, but this is typical of libs, sue, sue sue, don’t accept laws of the land, and when you find a judge that agrees with you try to tell the people that the case is settled, no go away

    • ONLYJB1

      The 9th district court. Where else?

      • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

        But he wouldn’t have standing in the 9th because NY is in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

        • ONLYJB1

          Watch and learn as this plays out. There is no rule of law any more. If this actually goes any further, just watch and learn.

          • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

            The rules haven’t degraded that much – I hope.

          • Kenneth Fichtl

            If you had dead parents in the city whose estate was stolen by criminals with the help of the city you would be fuming

          • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

            That’s unfortunate, but that doesn’t mean there’s NO RULE of law any more. I’ve been cheated by the city where I live, but I don’t believe the rule of law is completely dead, just in dire straits. So we do need to revive the rule of true constitutional law in America.

          • Kenneth Fichtl

            .The city is apathic to crimes against its’ oldest families The Agencies do not data share they refuse to address zoning violations permits the 120 are all rookies many crimes are now civil even those involving gun theft child molestation National security .All of the CA complaints and violations went to Oath in August 2016 My complaint is already more than 2 years old. You work your way to the top the mayor sends you a letter and tells you you have to start all over again. They have no revenue stream and the fraud is Massive everyone works under the Table. My brother in law worked for the DSNY was out on unlimited sick the last 2 years worked 2 other jobs while on full benefits and defrauded SSDI No one cares

          • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

            I’ve heard lots of horror stories of fraud, waste, and abuse, particularly in socialist Democrat run cities. sadly, those who care are often outnumbered by those looking for their next welfare nanny state handout.

            That’s why we need as Jefferson said to bind the government with the chains of the Constitution and may unfortunately need to water the Tree of Liberty.

          • Kenneth Fichtl

            The middle and the upper middle are no able to bear the burden of the Malfeasance that is carrier out upon them by the disparity of Government . This is not sustainable

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      It’s a typical liberal weapon called lawfare.

  • Patrick Feeney

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) wants more dead babies!

    • Robert Kahlcke

      that’s because he is a product of INCEST.

      • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

        And you know that how?

      • Rich

        I don’t know about that but he is justification for birth control

  • Liz Entrekin

    Why would he even care or have a leg to stand on? New York State already has their version of Roe vs Wade

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      That’s what he and most liberals don’t, or don’t want to understand. If the SCOTUS overthrew Roe vs. Wade then it would be up to individual States to decide. What he wants to do is force acceptance by the entire nation.

      • LeslieFish

        I’ve seen no evidence that Kavanaugh is a forced-birther, and in any case there are no such cases pending. Cuomo is tilting at windmills.

        • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

          I badly worded my last sentence. I was referring to Gov. Cuomo whom I believe wants to force his views on the ensure nation.

          Thanks for the catch. I’ll edit it.

  • SgtOIF

    Since when can someone sue the government? It like suing Mother Nature for not enough rain.

    • Duck59

      WHOOOYA!
      75TH !!

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      Citizens have been suing the government, and WINNING, for some time. The question is, would he have standing to sue the SCOTUS over a ruling on whether or not a previous court ruling was constitutional. I believe the answer is no. He would have to convince Congress and the States to pass an amendment enshrining Roe vs. Wade.

  • Sarge

    This idiot Cuomo is trying to tear down the SCOTUS. The SCOTUS is the highest court in the land and what they say is law and can go no higher.

  • Richard

    Libs are all brain dead morons, what court does he think he can sue the highest court in the land?

  • Michael Ksen

    Regulating abortion would revert fully to state legislatures, many of which have become more conservative and have passed more than 400 laws that restrict access in the past six years alone.

    There are four states where abortion would be banned as soon as Roe v. Wade were overturned; Louisiana, Mississippi and North and South Dakota enacted “trigger laws” with delayed effective dates. Ten other states still have pre-Roe abortion bans on the books that never were repealed. Eight states have laws that explicitly protect abortion rights.

  • Wenda Kennedy

    I had no idea that he’s experiencing a “problem pregnancy” to gain standing to bring a court case? Is this man nuts? To whom is he going to go so he can sue the Supreme Court? They’re the top of the heap. Talk, talk, talk.

    • Robert Kahlcke

      They stopped enforcing INCEST laws before he was whelped.

      • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

        You seem to need to accuse others of being the product of incest. Is it because that’s the case with you?

  • Maggietish

    And this is why the state of New York is in such dire straits. The Democratic control throughout the Cities snd Stste of New York has been an abysmal failure and has them on the brink of disaster.

    • bob

      New York State is not only a abysmal FAILURE it’s a shit-hole of a state. It’s on the brink of bankruptcy ,people are moving out in large numbers & that;s why 20 years ago I left Syracuse to move west to Arizona. Was born in Buffalo & was back there a few years ago & the bulk of the city is rotting & being overrun with illegal immigrants.

    • Mac Daddy

      Sort of like what has happened in Detriot. Way to many Democratic Socialists trying to excuse all their failures by adding another social program.

  • Tina Gallagher

    He’s welcome to try. There is no court over the Supreme Court.

    • Duck59

      Exactly.. Yet it would be informative to know in which court he plans to file the action along with the legal basis. This is more to play to the DNC propagnda arm, otherwise known as the MSM, than anything else. The more dopes like this continue to show their asses, the better. It’s one sure way to make them show stupidity and moreover, cast the harsh light of truth on their REAL agenda.

      ttfn…

  • peter

    New York is filled with idiot democrats and Cuomo is one of many! Idiot voters too!

  • Juanita Elrod Reed

    CUOMO OPENLY SAID HE WAS & HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ILLEGAL IN OUR COUNTRY YET HE HAS VOTED & RAN FOR THE GOV OF NY SEVERAL TERMS WHICH MEANS HE IS A FRAUD GOV IN OUR COUNTRY JUST LIKE OBAMA WAS A FRAUD NOT LEGAL PRESIDENT NOR SENATOR. COUMO SAID HE WAS STILL AN ILLEGAL & HE HAS USED FLAKE IDS & ALL HIS FAMILY IS JUST LIKE IN ILL LOUIS G IS HOLDING AN OFFICE WHO ALSO SAID HE WAS JUST LIKE CUOMO DOES THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE SENT TO GITMO FRO TRAITORS & CHARGED FOR TREASON THEH ARE CRIMINALS SEND ICE FOR THEM OUT BRAGGING ABOUT WHO & WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IN OUR COUNTRY TO THE AMERICANS & AMERICA FOR THEIR CRIMES.

    • Robert Kahlcke

      It’s ok, they are all INBRED operatives pf the Democrat-Communist-Islamic-Nazi Terrorist Organization and are above the law.

  • Mac Daddy

    This Gun Grabbing Socialist has me changing my mind about abortion he is a prime case for retro-abortion LOL. No really I can see times for abortions for rape, incest & dire medical conditions for the mother. But these folks who think late term & regret because they were to lazy to go down to the local Planed Parenthood & other social organizations for a contraception should be disqualified. Why should tax payers have to foot the bill for people (men & women) who are too lazy & trifling to get free contraception. As for this knucklehead of a Governor who is anti the Bill of Rights & the Constitution maybe the Middle-Class citizens of NY should look at this socialist & see if he is worth putting back in office since he does not care about them. See somebody is going to have to pay for this & it won’t be his rich buddies or the poor so guess who is left holding the tax bag.

    • Bucks County Dudebear

      You are so right ! Every female in this country has access to birth control and prevention in every drug store – government subsidized abortion should be outlawed and not be necessary – why would anyone choose a life-threatening medical procedure when they could have taken a pill or used protection – if government subsidized abortion was not available then they would have to pay for it themselves, then see how many would get birth control or protection or think before you make that “CHOICE” to create a life – yes, it is alive – growing – thriving – moving – and then months later you want to say “Gee, I guess now I need an abortion” – just because you were careless or decide you hate your partner you expect taxpayers to pay for your stupid decision – every pregnancy can be eliminated almost immediately with a pill or medical procedure !

      • Mac Daddy

        I agree 110 percent with you & the sad truth is we as citizens of the USA, only we can stop these leftist baby killers at the polls, because they & their followers have no conscience!

    • Juanita Elrod Reed

      STOP & THINK HOW ABORTIONS HOW GOT TO BE SUCH A HOT TOPIC. WITH THE ROE & WADE CASE. IT WAS GIVING THE ABORTIONS OK IF FOR INSEST & RAPE OR LIFE OF THE WOMAN IT WAS APROVED. THEN THEY PUSHED IT UNTIL TODAY UNWANTED BABIES & NOT TRYING TO PROVENT GETTING WITH A BABY IN FIRST PLACE IS NO WORRY JUST MURDER THE BABIES FROM SORRY PEOPLE WHO WILL NOT ADMINT THEY ARE MURDERING HUMANS. WHO IS PUSHING THIS SO HARD IS DRS. & CEO FOR PPH FOR THE MONEY & SELLING BODY PARTS FOR MONEY. MAIN PUSHERS ARE OUR ENEMIES OF AMERICAN LIKE SOROS, OBAMA, KILLARY, LIB DEMA-RATS BECAUSE IF WE THE TRUE AMERICANS WHO ARE STILL THE MARJORITY OF AMERICA ARE REPRODUCING MORE OF US AMERICANS THEY CAN NEVER OVER COME US & OUR COUNTRY SO IF THESE STUPID ASS PEOPLE CAN’T WAKE UP TO THE REAL REASON ABORTIONS ARE BEING PUSHED IS TO UNDERSTAND THIS & BLACKS & WHITES & ALL AMERICANS DON’T HAVE BABIES FOR OUR FUTURE TO SERVILE & REPRODUCE OUR RACE & COUNTRY IS GONE TO OUR ENEMIES TO TAKE US ALL WHO ARE AMERICANS LEFT& OUR COUNTRY. I HAVE BEEN YELLING THIS FOR SO LONG BUT NO ONE WANTS TO LISTEN TO THE REAL REASON THRY WANT US TO KILL AS MANY OF OUR OF OUR UNBORN AMERICAN BABIES TO KILL THESE UNBORN BABIES IS TO KILL OUR RACE OF PEOPLE. RIGHT NOW IT WILL TAKE MORE THAN 40 YRS TO PRODUCE ENOUGH OF OUR NEWBORN AMERICAN BABIES BEFORE WE WILL BE AT A NORMAL REPRODUCTION PACE TO REPRODUCE. WHEN YOU CAN’T BEAT A NATION IN WAR WHAT DO YOU DO BUT HELP KILL THE NATION OUT TO WIN KILLING THEM OUT ONE AT A TIME IN A FAST PACE STOP THEIR REPRODUCTING MORE..

      • Mac Daddy

        To use an old phrase “you just hit the nail on the head”. A fine example is China is now having to recruit woman because their genocide of females from abortions over the decades. This recruit of outsiders has caused a great concern for the government, & the general public.

  • ONLYJB1

    I just can’t nor have I ever understood the democommie’s desire to murder babies!

    • gvette

      It’s their version of birth control!

  • Robert Kahlcke

    The INBRED operatives of the Democrat-Communist-Islamic-Nazi Terrorist Organization, may as well pack it in before things get nasty.

  • ONLYJB1

    Oh boy, did I just figure it out? If roe v wade is reversed, do they fear the law pursuing them for murder? More than 900,000 murdered!

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      If Roe vs. Wade is overturned it’d leave the decision on abortions to the States. Furthermore, any previous abortions couldn’t be tried as murder due to the ban on ex-post facto laws.

  • Jim

    Gin up the base, watch the money roll in. democRAT base responds to emotion, not reality. If Roe v Wade is overturnedby the Supreme Court (unlikely), NY would be the first to make it legal in the state. Cuomo has a bad case of reverse digestion.

  • Ironmike4610

    Who does this bastard think he is?

    • MyRoseHasTHORNS

      Father of bastards he wants to eliminate freely and without concern and never experience guilt?

    • ahrcshaw

      When you are using other peoples money you can be what ever you want to be to get re elected. Just ask Aunty Maxine Watters. or Hillary or Bill, or Oblaimer.

  • Kenneth Fichtl

    Thanks to the Mario bros and DelBlasmyass NYC has taken the express to Dante Inferno

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      This applies to the State of NY, not just NYC.

      • Kenneth Fichtl

        It is to bad the sewer has backed up an infected so many parts of upstate are still beautiful

        • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

          Very true. NY is controlled mainly by 3 cities, NYC, Albany, and Buffalo. I was born in Brooklyn, home of dem bums, and during college years lived in Kingston.

  • ahrcshaw

    What a self centered, arrogant user of tax payers money, who was elected by seemly the same delusional people such as him self. Abortion in is self is not totally bad or not needed at times. The problem with wade vs roe is that nuts like him want to control births through legislation. A woman can keep her body, use her body as she wishes, but she also needs to learn how to cross her legs. Children are even being misguided by such liberal anything you do is OK thinking. Wade vs roe needs to be modified, if that means reversing it so be it. I think level headed thinker need to re consider this mandate.

    • Mac Daddy

      When you are right you are right.

  • MARX-INE WATERS CRAZY

    “God forbid they do what they intend to do, abort innocent children who had no CHOICE!

    Fixed it for you.

    I find it appalling that in 2018, the Intelligentsia class still can’t figure out how they get pregnant.

  • ddufremle

    This New York fool makes a good suggestion for socialists. It makes everyone realize how stupid this dope is and how ridiculous the left really is. There are consequences to winning and loosing an election. The left just wasn’t smart enough to be on the winning side. Mr. Cuomo you are not relevant except to your socialist fans in New York. Go climb down a sewer so you can tell your fans how wonderful you are. Jerk

  • bob

    This asshole of a Governor don’t seem to understand the premise of the Roe vs. Wade law.
    If it is overturned, it would be overturned on a national level only, BUT returned to the States as to what each individual state would mandate. If say NY State votes to continue to allow abortions it could do so. If say Ohio voted to stop abortions it would apply to those living in Ohio ONLY. It would NOT STOP a women from Ohio traveling from Ohio to New York state to get an abortion.
    See you dumb ass stupid Governor, it DON’T STOP ABORTIONS FROM BEING PREFORMED.
    No wonder NY State is such a shit-hole of a state to live in, their own Governor & their dumb-assed Mayor of New York are more interested in making a name for themselves to run in 2020 than try to solve ALL the problems of NY City or the state.
    That’s why 20 years ago I got the hell out of there.

    This is the same guy that said conservatives weren’t welcome in NY.

  • MyRoseHasTHORNS

    riddle me this-

    WHY is it not OK to enact a legally decided Capital Punishment because the murderer/rapist/guilty as hell sc*[email protected] MIGHT experience some pain BUT perfectly acceptable to rip a living feeling growing human to piece in the womb?
    I’d like to enact 2 special laws-

    1-Death penalty prisoners be executed IMMEDIATELY after their first appeal
    2-NO fetus can be terminated after a heart beat is detected.

  • Brandy

    It needs to be overturned immediately

  • notalib

    I bet the Supreme Court really doesn’t give a tinkers damn what this liberal Democrat does. Either it is lawful or it is unlawful. What Cuomo says doesn’t matter. Suck it up lib Cuomo. This just nets you a little face time on the web.

  • Duck59

    How much longer and how many more times will it take for the people to once and for all see where the “regressives” like Cuomoe time, Pelosi, Warren and Schumer amoung others are trying to move this towards? Each time these nonbelivers in The Constitution come forth with another hair brain scheme to twhart Constitutional mandates a few more finally see them for who and what they truely are.

    HOWVER, while a few at a time is better than none at all, in order to rid government from the local PC idiots to state and federal levels, it will take a solid and committed ground, grass routes effort. We can no longer stand idle and hope someone else will accomplish this. For in the words of the saying “Evil can only trimph when good people (sic) do nothing”.

    Its actually too much to expect that idiots such as Pelosi will be turned out of office for they live where there views are echoed. Mad Maxine doesn’t live in the district she misrepresents. Rather she live in an very upscale area in a house with an estamated value in mid figures. When you step back and see what she has been up to, that she has been “in office” for at least THREE DECADES and has NEVER held any employment outside of government, one has to wonder how she and too damn many others like her, have managed to accumlate personal worths in execss of ONE HUNDRED MILLON dollars!!

    ITS HIGH TIME BOTH HOUSES WERE RETURNED TO THEIR RESPECTIVE TERM LIMITS AS WAS OUTLINED IN THE CONSTITUTION. THEN PERHAPS IT’LL BE POSSIBLE TO HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OUR FOUNDERS OUTLINED.

    Nuff said…
    TTFN… TRB!

  • Bill

    The demonratic asshats can’t win crap, can no longer lie to the citizens without being caught in the lies and cannot threaten people any longer so now they plan on filing frivolous law suits against the country. Definitely over reaching the political powers of their offices.

  • LeslieFish

    What is his problem? There are, AFAIK, no court cases concerning abortion that have any chance of coming before the SCOTUS in the next five or ten years. I’ve heard that “The guilty flee when no man pursueth”, but this is ridiculous.

  • cjjf

    This is where democrats are thesedays. they dont like something, they want to sue to get their way. They dont even think, just sue, or yell, or boycott, or protest….. no brains, no debate, entitlement attitude in action.

  • mwood13

    let him try, they could make his breathing unconstitutional

  • Rod

    How do you sue the SCOTUS? They’re at the top of the judiciary. He’s thinking of wasting New York $$$

  • Mac Daddy

    What a dumbass. Poor New York and New York City! New York with the biggest jackass in the nation next to Gov Jerry Brown and NYC with most ignorant bumbling mayor ever who breaks the laws in Mexico and the US all in want instance accompanied by NYPD escort! hahaha

  • Paul Hunter

    He is an idiot and trying to stir up people. Even if Roe was overturned any state could make abortion legal in their own laws. Roe limits what kind of restrictions can be put on abortion. If your state has legalized abortion you will be able to get one, end of story.

  • Alan404

    Re Cuomo’s bring suit against The U.S. Supreme Court, in which court might the action he speaks of possibly be filed?

  • James Montale

    Has this ever been done? Has a state or any government, city or county, ever sued the Supreme Court?

    If it did, what court would the lawsuit be heard in? I think it would have to go to the Supreme Court. Looks like we have a problem here.

  • Stephen Robinson

    Unless the SCOTUS decides to go to the most extreme and declare all lower courts must view the fetus as a sentient and protected citizen AND give deference to the rights of the fetus over the rights of the mother; something no one is suggesting; then the SCOTUS will only say that the states can regulate if abortions will be legal or not within that state’s border. If NYS says it is legal then Cuomo will have no standing on Alabama’s decision to ban the procedure. NYS will also suffer no harm if the courts say their law allowing abortions is just as valid as Alabama’s decision not to allow the procedure.

  • Walter Harvey

    Impeach Cuomo, he’s nothing but bad news as well as a large percentage of Democrats!

  • -Cuomo has obviously been spending to much time in some other country or he is totally ignorant of the U. S. Constitution. If he has ever been an attorney he must have cheated on the exams which would not surprise me at all character as it is. What a dumb ass talking about suing SCOTUS. Why don’t you just move to a banana shit-hole and stop trying to make my country into one.

  • 187thAHCDoorgunner

    Where was partial birth abortion the day the OB smacked his ass? Then dropped him on his head. We need SCOTUS to hear Stupid v Smart.

  • Rich

    The only thing SCOTUS would say is it isn’t covered by the constitution. It is up to the individual states. States Rights.
