SCOTUS argued loudly before dismissing the Texas lawsuit. By Hal Turner, from someone who called in to his radio show.
Hal, as you know I am a clerk for one of the Justices on SCOTUS. Today was like nothing we have ever seen. The justices are arguing loudly behind closed doors.
The Justices met in a closed and sealed room, as is standard.
Usually it is very calm, however today we could hear screaming all the way down the hall.
They met in person, because they didn’t trust telephonic meeting as secure.
Chief Justice Roberts was screaming
“Are you going to be responsible for the rioting if we hear this case?”
“Don’t tell me about Bush v. Gore, we weren’t dealing with riots then”
“You are forgetting what your role here is Neil, and I don’t want to hear from the two junior justices anymore. I will tell you how you will vote.”
Justice Clarence Thomas says “This is the end of Democracy, John.”
When they left the room, Roberts, the Libs and Kavanugh had big smiles. Alito and Thomas were visibly upset. ACB and Gorsuch didn’t seem fazed at all.
As we surmised a couple of days ago, when the Supreme Court dismissed the case:
But look at the actual political environment. If the Supreme Court were to rule in any way that might lead to a Trump victory, then there would be rioting, a huge media uproar, and widespread and vicious condemnation of the Court by the chattering class. On the other hand, if the Supreme Court dismisses Trump’s complaints then there is no rioting and everyone stays nice. Sooo much easier to dismiss Trump’s righteous complaints without ever hearing their substance.
Looks like the bullies are winning. Threaten riots, social mischief, ostracism… it works. Individual security details guard the Supreme Court justices 24/7. But they are no match for the threats of a resumption of the left’s rioting and looting of this year, nastiness from the friends and peers of the judges, and a media pile-on.
It’s really about raw power, not about legalities and rules. The power of the left — due to its media, its chattering class ostracizers, and its street brawlers — is too great. So Biden for President it is, and democracy dies.
