After angry public reaction to the leaked Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito draft opinion on reversing Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas said: “We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like. We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.” The kind of events to which Thomas referred include pro-abortion activists blocking church entrances and protesting at the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Alito.
It is difficult to determine when this generation of Americans on the Left decided to attack rather than persuade those who disagree. But an inflection point occurred when, for the first time in history, the Senate rejected a Supreme Court nominee, not because of ethics or lack of character, but because Democrats opposed his judicial philosophy.
President Ronald Reagan nominated to U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Justice Robert Bork, who represented — to Democrats like Sen. Ted Kennedy — a threat to move the Supreme Court to the right on issues like abortion and affirmative action. Kennedy viciously attacked. On the Senate floor, Kennedy described “Robert Bork’s America” as “a land in which women would be forced into back?alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.”
Two years ago, at a pro-abortion rights rally in front of the Supreme Court, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., shouted: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” Following this, Chief Justice John Roberts issued a statement: “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory. But threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”
Two years earlier, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., at a rally, called for the public harassment of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet members. Waters shouted: “If you see anybody from that (Trump) Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
President Joe Biden, who once backed an amendment to overturn Roe v. Wade, recently slammed its possible reversal: “What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history — in recent American history.”
Even The New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet criticized the intolerance of the supposedly tolerant Left. In 2017, Baquet said: “I don’t understand how one can actually have an intellectual discourse in this country if you cannot have the opportunity to read thoughtful people with whom you disagree. We’re at a moment in the country right now which I think, you know, the left should do some soul searching too, right? … We don’t want to hear anything — we’ve long said this about this about the Right … but the Left as a rule does not want to hear thoughtful disagreement.”
I am pro-life. I oppose abortion. I live in California, where voters opposed abortion restriction propositions for parental notification and for waiting periods. As a federalist who believes that issues like abortion are properly left to the states, I see my role as a citizen, pundit and a person of faith to persuade, not threaten. There was a time when people on the Left felt this way, too.

Had it been Mary Joe not Ted Kennedy who survived drowning at Chappaquiddick, millions could be alive today. Not just the children Mary Joe could have created on her own but for the usual type actions of the Democrat Liberal Liar Lion of the Senate. Drugs, Booze and Democrats is a lethal concoction indeed. Time for clearer minds and cleaner souls to take control of this issue.
Rumor has it that Mary Joe told Ted she could be pregnant, whereupon he responded “Don’t worry Mary Joe, we will cross that bridge when we come to it.”, just the same attitude of Liberal Pro-Abortion women today as they cross the Bridge over troubled waters that could have been avoided had they made better Pro-choices who they slept with, which after a bad one is made, leaves no good choice of decency to cure.
No matter how hard the Socialist, communist , party of America trys, There are two sexes A Male And Female, And the ” Two Human Beings Have Been Assigned completely different biological roles ever since the ” Adam and Eive in the ” Garden of Eden . “

When we elect Godless, hateful, self-righteous representatives like the corrupt puppet Joe Biden, Tinkerbell PinocchiObama, the hateful Nancy Pelosi, racist Maxine Waters, liar Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, Giggles Kamala Harris, Bimbo Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Warren and Ayanna Pressley who intentionally pit one group against another to divide the country and cultivate hate and distrust, you got to ask yourself; what are the motives of these type people? To lead the country into prosperity OR to gain control, stay in power any way possible and to dominate the citizens? No matter the costs to the people, the government or the nation.
AND when for decades WE as a people have LET THOSE In charge, get away with bloody murder, with out any accountability, OF COURSE the general population will start EMULATING those in charge.

The Bible Said:
Matthew 6:24 explains, ” No man can serve two masters for either he will hate the one and love the other or else he will hold to the one and despise the other , Ye cannot serve God and Mammon. “
“Genesis 2:18 — King James Version (KJV 1900)
18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. “
Elizabeth Warren in a recent rant stated that Republicans have been vying for the reversal of Roe/Wade for years. She went on to state that we can’t have a right-wing fringe making such decisions. However, the Democrat Party of which she is a member, sees no problem with stacking the court by increasing the number of Liberal-leaning Justices. In her way of thinking, a Liberal majority is okay—a Conservative majority is not.
What these people lose sight of is that the Supreme Court is supposed to be non-partisan and true to the Constitution in their decision-making. Sometimes that will benefit the Conservative point of view—at other times, it will benefit the Liberal point of view. It is impossible to please everybody with every single decision. We hold these Justices to be men and women of honor and character—to stand above the raucous mob mentality that we are seeing in recent days—and to abide by the Constitution in rendering decisions that are sound and honorable for the common good.
The purpose of having Liberal and Conservative Justices is to provide balance in deciding the cases that come before it. It is not a Republican Supreme Court—nor is it a Democrat Supreme Court. It is the mediator designed to bring the best of both mindsets together in deciding what is right and fair—for all.
Socialist Democrat’s objective is to stay in power any way possible and to dominate and control the citizens?
No matter the costs to the people, the U.S. Constitution, the government or the nation.
The traitorous, dishonest, destructive, socialist Democrat Party revolves around and its philosophy is based on Total Control, Hate, Lies, Cons, Deceptions, Immorality and the lack of Integrity, Ethics or Honor.
This treasonous, dishonest, destructive, corrupt, immoral, socialist Democrat Party and their corrupt, demented puppet has become our country’s most destructive and deadliest ENEMY and needs to be destroyed!!
THEIR idea of non-Partisan, is “VOTE HOW WE WANT< or you're wrong"… LIKE with most everything else the DEMS feel.. ITS THEIR way or the high way.
