Americans learned on Friday, June 24th, exactly why Donald Trump stacked the Supreme Court with three hastily confirmed Federalist Society-approved nominees: they want to end all personal freedoms in America while retaining all of the power. Abortion is just the beginning: they’re also going to try to end LGBTQIA marriage and other protections. And while the Compromised Court is at it, they’re also clearly supporting the Republicans’ plot to dismantle our voting system from within.
If that sounds like another sequel to “The DaVinci Code” to you, I can’t really blame you. Conspiracies are hard to prove, but this one is pretty obvious. Trump’s three justices (Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Barrett-OfDonald) all lied under oath during their confirmations when they said they believed Roe v Wade was settled law. The Supreme Court needs to be expanded and those three should be impeached along with Clarence Thomas, who believes the COVID vaccines are made from aborted fetuses while being married to an insurrectionist, COME ON.
While we can hope that new Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will be a voice of reason and dissent, an unbalanced and compromised Supreme Court is still a threat to our basic foundations. This thread from syndicated talk show host Thom Hartmann says what all of my articles say in one thread (click through to read the whole thing):
2/ Six Republicans on the Supreme Court just announced — a story that has largely flown under the nation’s political radar — that they’ll consider pre-rigging the presidential election of 2024.

If more than half the country thinks the government is corrupt, will they show up to vote in November? Will our votes even matter?
