So far, my friend's been right: The judiciary IS holding!

"The Judiciary branch is strong and WE. WILL. HOLD"
A few weeks ago, a dear old friend, a Republican-appointed federal judge, trying to console me during a moment of despair about the future of our country, said to me “The Judiciary branch is strong and will hold.” When I expressed skepticism, he leaned toward me, looked me dead in the eye, and said as firmly as he could without shouting: “We are strong and WE. WILL. HOLD.”

Today, thanks to Judge Mehta, I think he may be right ...

53. As awful as Kavanaugh is ...

Remember that he was George W. Bush's lawyer. GWB hates Trump. Kavanaugh now no longers owes anything to the Dumbass-in-Chief.

During Watergate, Nixon also banked on his appointments to SCOTUS voting for him in US v. Nixon (aka the Tapes Case). None of them did.

I was talking to one of my children today about CJ Roberts. I told my child that I cannot imagine that he would allow the Supreme Court to side with Trump on outright stonewalling of Congress by the President. That would result in the immediate destruction of the three co-equal branches of government in the US.

Then again, what do I know!

52. Kavanaugh and Anthony Kennedy have seriously compromised

themselves with their criminal behavior. Justice Kennedy gave up his seat so that his son wouldn’t be in trouble. He works for Deutsche Bank and gave the Trumps and Kushners a billion dollar loan that saved his ass. This was a criminal conspiracy between Trump, Kennedy, Kennedy, Kavanaugh, Kushner and whoever paid his debts off. I feel like this will eventually come out as most things like this do. It doesn’t mean they will be punished, but a girl can dream, right?

12. While I can't stand Roberts, I know that he knows he will have to stand with the appeals courts

if ANY appeal gets a certoriari by SCOTUS.

As he goes, so the others will, so that the ruling will be unanimous.

But I doubt any appeal case will get a certoriari, because the arguments are stupid, by appeals justices opinions, so far; and because SCOTUS justices (I hope) know that the rest of the well argued and written precedent rulings preclude their listening to any appeals brought forward at all, at this point.

Roberts will just go sit there in the Senate, say and do nothing, hide his pleasure over the Senate exoneration of Trump. And the Repub traitors will know how he feels.

It will be just the way he presided over the prepping of the team that argued Gore v Bush before SCOTUS in the 2000 presidential.

I hold John Roberts as activist as any justice in US history.

Bush and Roberts ****ed this country over.

And here we are in this sickening, toxic place with democracy in chains.

Nor, as is obviously going on, under the weight of Democrat decadence and corruption.

Is it just me or is anyone else have trouble reading the sentence posted above? I feel like I am suffering from some sort of aphasia when I try to read it.


The policies that are indorsed by this party, that they backer of which are much of the 1 percent, causes a social structure much like the one back before the Revolution.

Your boy changed the rules to confirmation by a simple majority, even though he was implicitly warned not to.  How's it taste?

Just wait for RGB to leave us.  Man, the head explosions will be something to see.
Help keep America beautiful...deface a liberal.

The Democrat and Republican parties are simply the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

The road to freedom is paved with dead liberals.
