The Democrats have the Supreme Court in their sights.
When liberals decide on a plan of attack they don’t mess around.
And Democrats have one secret weapon that will destroy Clarence Thomas.
Donald Trump appealed a ruling by four radical left activists on the Colorado State Supreme Court removing his name from the ballot using Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
The liberals granted the resistance wish of deeming Trump an insurrectionist disqualified from holding office again under the Constitution.
This argument sounded great in the green rooms at MSNBC and CNN.
And a parade of so-called “legal experts” fed viewers on CNN and MSNBC a healthy diet of resistance wish casting the Constitution as containing “one weird trick” that will exile Trump from public life forever.
But once the rubber met the road the Supreme Court justices – even the liberal ones – laughed this absurd theory out of court.
That left its proponents – including Colorado’s Democrat Secretary of State Jena Griswold – raging on CNN about how the Supreme Court is against democracy unless it lets her cancel the election by banning Joe Biden’s opposition.
“We know this is a court that has not been friendly to democracy, voting rights, and fundamental freedoms. I think, ultimately, this case is really important,” Griswold told host John Berman.
Griswold then told her version of events of what happened on January 6 and whined that the Supreme Court wouldn’t go along with her idea of just allowing Democrats to declare Trump an insurrectionist and ban him from the ballot.
“It was stunning yesterday. We can just see the Capitol right across the street, re-imagine what it was like, those congresspeople running for their lives, a violent mob going to stop the peaceful transfer of power, and then being in the Supreme Court and hearing Donald Trump continue to lie about his role in the insurrection. So, it was a bit surreal,” Griswold continued.
“It’s the United States Supreme Court. They have all the tools to be able to define what an insurrection is,” Griswold added. “Make no mistake, Donald Trump broke the laws. He incited that violent mob.”
The reasons for the attack on the Court’s legitimacy quickly became clear.
Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin demanded Clarence Thomas recuse himself over the fact that his wife Ginni once went to a public website and used a form email to mass message state legislators to urge them not to certify the results from 2020.
“I’m calling for Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself in the 14th Amendment case determining if Donald Trump is ineligible for the 2024 ballot,” Durbin wrote on social media. “Given questions surrounding his wife’s involvement, Justice Thomas should recuse himself so there’s no question of bias.”
No one asked Ketanji Brown Jackson to recuse herself despite the fact that she would be deciding on the candidate defeating the president who appointed her.
That’s because Democrats knew they were going to lose this case from the get-go and they want to lay the predicate that the Supreme Court is corrupt and illegitimate.
The attacks on Thomas as being a pro-Trump partisan on an anti-democracy Supreme Court are laying the seeds for if Democrats win the White House and both chambers of Congress to pack the Supreme Court with at least six liberal justices and eliminate the conservative majority.
