Im sure once Alito’s is asked about his response he’ll find a way to blame his wife.

Whether or not Justice Alito’s wife is a Ginnie Thomas acolyte and culpable in this flag business, it still does not excuse that black-robed wuss from blaming his wife for his own ugly behavior.

So in summary let us briefly update and address the two central themes in Thomas Paine's precocious quote: "It has been the scheme of the Christian Church, and of all the other invented systems of religion, to hold man in ignorance of the Creator, as it is of governments to hold man in the ignorance of his rights. The systems of the one are as false as those of the other, and are calculated for mutual support." 

So let's talk about the relation between religion and polytrix in the US government. We have a Supreme Court with six Catholics, steering religion and politics to the far right, away from the Creator. We have a new speaker of the House who openly wants to establish a 'moral' Christian Nationalism run by the next Republican president. Who will implement a fascist plan called Project 2025, as outlined at the end of Thom Hartmann's historical analysis of what led up to The Shocking GOP Plan to Dismantle the American Government. And all the while you've watched the Republican Party champion the idea of "freedom" while you have also watched the same party openly assault various freedoms, like the freedom to vote, freedom to choose, freedom to marry who you want, freedom for your children's teachers and librarians to have them read what they want, freedom to form unions and so on. If this has been a source of confusion, then your assessments of what Republicans mean by freedom were likely too generous. Here is what they mean: 1. The freedom to tell people what to do. 2. Freedom from being told what to do.

Facists , aka Catholics "genocides" since Pope Innocence I 1300 and Ii 1400s make abundantly clear the Rights OF Man & French aristocracy loosing their heads over it is an improvement.

that said ....after funding the Colonists : a carve up BY Rome , then Catholic Rome Pope, under the " genocide " just war" ....not international law , by the way,.

Because the French Monarchy hated the British....ala Henry the VIii , after Martin Luther

learned to read Ancient Greek and Aramedic and published Bibles in languages anyone literate could read

96 points Martin Luther nailed to the door of his Catholic Church NOT consistent with the Bible.

Fast forward to the current Nuevo Nutsy psuedo religiousitic propaganda Not to profit corporation & Rico fraud brand inc traitors in greed orgy over free pollution and " worried about future Mothers" and just up in your guts roaming around looking for cash cash cash from conception to post mortem trinkets ...it's safe to say Individual rights of a child orvan adult are in step with the concept of Life Liberty Freedom and Justice for All.

And name the " religion" is very much NOT.

It is not Catholics; it is the Catholic Church in America - that leadership which disses Pope Francis and Jesus as too woke. Most regular Catholics do not agree with the Catholic Church of America's leadership which is way too far right.

True but it isn’t the wives who write the opinions - it’s the Justices themselves. Blaming the wives is a nonsense.

I do believe in my heart of hearts without knowing her that Martha Ann is a force to be reckoned with and as wicked as they come. Somehow living with each other, they feed themselves a constant diet of bitterness and hatred of the “common people” until it just becomes second nature. In days gone by, when the point came that the job was disliked more than liked, the justice retired but alas, in this case, the power has consumed Alito’s soul and he is corrupted to the core. As is Martha Ann for reasons I can only suspect.

What is of interest , though not shocking , is how superior and condescending these people are . The Supreme Courts cavalier Catholic Judges really believe that they are and know better than those that don’t share their beliefs.

I was raised Catholic, attending Catholic schools through 12 th grade . But the most sinister interpretations of Catholicism ( or misinterpretations ) seem to be held by the Leonard Leo’s and Samuel Alitos of this world .

There confusion about Catholicism and Christianity has much to do with being wealthy in their minds. As taught by Leonard Leo et al .

The fact is , that based on the life of Jesus , wealth was not a part of Christianity. In fact , humility and compassion and caring were attitudes of Jesus .

However , at this time we follow the Roman Catholic tradition of the papal delegations who were all wealthy politicians and leaders .

Many of them profoundly corrupt , yet we still ‘buy it ‘ .

Not all Catholics were wealthy , obviously . Those that were in charge of dogma were mostly wealthy.

They were hand in hand with feudal lords, aristocracy .

In fact the whole idea of confession , began in the Middle Ages as a way of finding out what the common people were up to . Since paranoia always affects those that are looking down on the not haves , expecting rebellion .

As they should expect.

Raised catholic also but too many things had to be taken on Faith not FACT and I left. And those who really believe all the myths scorn those who have doubts and questions.

Agreed. Two points:

1. Religion belongs in the realm of personal belief and is not in any way binding on anyone who does not hold to those religious tenets. We are guaranteed FREEDOM OF RELIGION and therefore we are FREE FROM OTHER PEOPLES RELIGION.

2. Ideologues and religion warriors should be removed from the Supreme Court if and/ or when they show that they allow their personal bias to dictate their interpretation of the Constitution and how it is applied.

Rhode Island was pre-founded in the 17th century by Roger Williams, a staunch advocate for religious freedom and the separation of church and state. The first settlers came here to escape religious persecution. The first line of the first amendment to the Constitution says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." America was founded on freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. How come we don't talk about this when the MAGA extremists and the Project 2025 authors are saying the opposite? When the Supreme Court is imposing idiosyncratic religious values on 350 million people who don't share them? We are not a Christian nation! We are the opposite. Christians are as welcome as the next group. But no more than that. Is it collective amnesia? Fear of contradicting what extremists say? Apathy? Why is no one talking about the basic contravention of American values MAGA followers represent?

Patricia Lane - I also was raised catholic. i learned later in life that catholicism was made the church of the roman empire in 313 AD. The collusion between upper hierarchy and gov't stole billions of dollars and squandered millions of lives in pursuit of wealth and power. theocracy never works, except for those at the top. recently i was reading acts of the apostles. turns out the early churches were communal, resources were shared amongst the members. it's a very instructive chapter in the new testament. i recommend it to all "christians".

My religious history and intention of uniting God's religions

The Catholic Church has a hundred years to prepare for Christ's takeover from the Pope and to integrate with other religions. I myself was raised Catholic but became a Gnostic Christian when given an early copy of Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Thomas from the Jung library. The whole group of Gnostic scriptures were dug up in the town of Nag Hammadi in the 1940s after being buried before Constantine sent his armies out to murder all the Gnostic 'heretics,' as the first ecumenical council of Christian bishops met in the town of Nicaea to formulate Christian doctrine that was thereafter meant to be preached sans Jesus’ heretical wisdom. But the Nag Hammadi Library is far from being the only Gnostic scriptures as Islamic Sufis have their own body of scripture, chief of which is "The Story Of Fire" that's available to read on 241's Rants page at 241mumbers .com.

Prior to the Nag Hammadi Gnostic scriptures, the Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran speaks of a Teacher of Righteousness, the “missing” Essene High Priest of 159-152 BCE. Wikipedia's summary: The Teacher is extolled as having proper understanding of the Torah, qualified in its accurate instruction, and being the one through whom God would reveal to the community "the hidden things in which Israel had gone astray". As my Prophesy of Jesus revealing Himself as Christ the Messiah on His 22nd birthday on 12-25-2122 will Fulfill the last book of the Bible Revelation 22, this Sacred Event was Destined to Completely Unite Judaism with Christianity.

An old friend of mine who considered himself a Gnostic Buddhist told me of a special day where a 'year of good luck' was promised for Buddhists when they'd recite a mantra praising a long chain of past Bodhisattvas who'd attained enlightenment. He sent me a copy of the mantra and it clearly identified the state of enlightenment with "Gnosis" or ultimate wisdom.

My earliest memory of a past life were a few dreams of being a Buddhist monk living in a monastery based on the side of a large mountain. In a later dream I had my head cut off and thrown down a dark well by a Turkish sword in the Crusades. I believe in my last incarnation I was murdered by Nazis trying to enter Switzerland. My Reichian (Wilhelm Reich wrote "The Mass Psychology of Fascism") deep tissue guru had multiple past lives, the most revealing of which was having his Protestant church being burned down on him, ridding him of his life long hatred of Catholics after his skin turned red. And then there is the story on 241's "Winners Club" page to teach and collect data on Precognition. It's about my psychic grandmother who died in the same hospital I was later born in. She'd earlier told the family of the death of one son in WWI and another in a sailboat accident on Lake Erie well before they were formally notified. My family went to visit her in the hospital after her best friend had just died. Her first words were "did you send flowers to (say) Helen's family." My family was naturally quite incredulous as after my father asked her how she knew her friend had died, my grandma replied "she came to me last night and told me I'd soon be with her." Grandma died in her sleep that night. And finally Jesus’ first line in the Gospel of Thomas: "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings shall not experience death." When one dies your Soul enters GOD'S Heavenly Kingdom in the 5th Dimension, removed from the 4D world. Thereafter you are Nonlocally Reborn with the 'Essence' of your old 'Body of Intuitive Habits' to Guide your new individual destiny as you progressively relearn everything one needs to know as you confront this new 4D world.

Buddhism is the only formal religion that prepares one for reincarnation, the Dalai Lama famously being tested in childhood to prove he was the preceding Dalai Lama. But not being in the Judaeo-Christian/Islamic tradition, Buddhists don't have a cogent concept of One God (to their betterment with respect to the Hindu tradition of many gods!). Indeed the idea of Monotheism first arose in Egypt when the Pharaoh Amenhotep IV changed his name to Akhenaten I, prophesying that the other gods of Egypt were preempted by a greater god, Aton the sun god who he as Pharaoh had a direct link to. When researching this for 241 I learned that Sigmund Freud wrote a book titled "Moses and Monotheism" that chronicles this history.

And finally the first quote on the 241mumbers. com website: “And there was given to me a reed like a rod and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and Measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and Measure It Not.” Revelation 11

Studying at some point the obvious becomes the ancient Roman and ancient Greek had the rapegod stories.

And wanted their taxes for Caesar

They wanted the slaves behavior pinned to the carrot of after life

Even if the mere mortals did notice they were enslaved

Also the tales of yesteryears spelled to the type of person who could feel relieved their behavior no matter what it was was dandy cause rape god already killed his own one and only child so that everyone could follow the carrot dangling in the form of after death living forever.

Anyone who can swallow that

Seriously?

Then, turns out, the one and only first century scholar who mentioned J of N was by his contemporaries known to be a liar. And forensic archiologists confirmed he lied more than once on verifiable matters

But that's not all

The first century scholars depictions of architecture were obviously Roman and the "scholar " lived in Rome.

As human knowledge the fixation on centuries old utter nonsense and failing to share human knowledge of all as well as revisiting the same superstitious what have you with no honest appraisal of contemporary known and knowable things is a distraction.

Now is not then

This is not that

And we need to get with better thinking than vague belief on unverifiable nonsense.

PREFACE : FIVE PROOFS OF GOD

In early 2000, after corresponding with my late partner A.J. Meyer for 12 years he told me he came up with his model of the universe after praying to God for a solution and soon had a vision that it would come from Revelation 21. Whereby on 10-11-00 the Monolith Number answered the #1 question posed at the Strings 2000 physics conference. In late 2020 I discovered Revelation 21:6, the centerpiece of the last three of 4 Proofs Of GOD as the Theological Proof that we live in an Anti de Sitter cosmos, as shown in 2 space-time dimensions on the cover of my first 1981 book (pages 2 and 3 of Chapter 11's Biography of A.J. Meyer and Sean Sheeter).

This is a Preface to both the extended 17 chapters of The Unified 11 Dimensional Field Solution meant for physics libraries, physicists and others who want a deeper exploration of these paradigm shifting breakthroughs and the abbreviated 11 chapters of God's Unified 11 Dimensional Universe meant for physics and religion libraries and all laymen in the general public with an interest in Cosmologically Uniting Physics And All Religions Under One God!!! The first two chapters are summarized in Proofs 2 and 3.

"It has been the scheme of the Christian Church, and of all the other invented systems of religion, to hold man in ignorance of the Creator, as it is of governments to hold man in the ignorance of his rights. The systems of the one are as false as those of the other, and are calculated for mutual support."  Thomas Paine

4 PROOFS OF GOD

1. HISTORICAL/LOGICAL: Google the proofs and writings of Saint Thomas Aquinas. He had at least 5 proofs for God. Here are two of them. The Second Way: Efficient Cause

1. Nothing is the efficient cause of itself.

2. If A is the efficient cause of B, then if A is absent, so is B.

3. Efficient causes are ordered from first cause, through intermediate cause(s), to ultimate effect.

4. By (2) and (3), if there is no first cause, there cannot be any ultimate effect.

5. But there are effects.

6. Therefore there must be a first cause for all of them: God.

The Third Way: Possibility and Necessity

1. "We find in nature things that are possible to be and not to be:" contingent beings.

2. Everything is either necessary or contingent.

3. Assume that everything is contingent.

4. "It is impossible for [contingent beings] always to exist, for that which can not-be at some time is not."

5. Therefore, by (3) and (4), at one time there was nothing.

6. "That which does not exist begins to exist only through something already existing."

7. Therefore, by (5) and (6), there is nothing now.

8. But there is something now!

9. Therefore (3) is false.

10. Therefore, by (2), there is a necessary being: God.

2. COSMOLOGICAL/DEFINITIONAL/PROPHETIC: Quantum Entanglement employs a Non-Local Instantaneous Quantum Mechanical Connection Across SPACE in a 5-Dimensional Anti de Sitter Space-Time.

The Anti de Sitter cosmos has a 3-Dimensional Euclidean Space which is Carried through the 4th Dimension of Time by a Primordial Gravitational Wave that was originally Emitted in the Big Bang. At the Big Bang the Totality of Space was a Cosmological White Hole with an Inflation Termination Radius of 7.18 meters whose Exterior Spatial Horizon proceeds to Expand outward at Light Speed before becoming the Interior Spatial Horizon of a Cosmological Black Hole with a Radius of 44.044 Billion Light Years. Which thereafter begins Contracting, finally Ending Time in the Big Gravitational Crunch after the Full AdS Cycle of 88.088 Billion Light Years.

The 5th Dimension of the Anti de Sitter Cosmology consists of a Non-Local Time-Symmetric Quantum Mechanical Connection between Future and Past that can only be Humanly Witnessed via Precognition and Prophesy. The difference between Theoretical Speculation and Reality is the very DEFINITION OF GOD as the NONLOCAL FIVE DIMENSIONAL TOTALITY of an ANTI DE SITTER SPACE-TIME whose CYCLE ENDS after 88.088 Billion Light Years, thus FULFILLING Revelation 21:6: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.”

3. GEOMETRICAL/MATHEMATICAL MAPPING Of CREATION/INFLATION: Here's the Answer to Albert Einstein's question "Did God have a choice in creating the universe" in terms of Fulfilling Revelation 21:6 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end:" Omega and Alpha Meet in one Timeless 11 Dimensional Point called the Motz/Planck Primaton, whose Mass is Derived by multiplying the Combined Proton and Electron Mass by 2 to the 63.5 power. God's Alpha Act of Creation is a Quantum Gravitational Jump to the Effective Planck Mass, whose mass is derived by multiplying Mp+e by 2 to 63.5-1/241. This Initiates Inflation by Doubly-Looped String Unravelings whose First Stage Creates 18 Superposed 6D Strings and Planck Masses from the One initial Planck mass, as represented in the three Figures of Diagram I in The Sixth Class of String Theory. The String Unravelings Cease when space has Inflated to the Heavy Higgs Scale, which is defined by dividing the Monolith Number 203+1/241 = Nu by 4, whereby the Universal Mass is Restored as Calculated by multiplying the Planck mass by 2^Nu. [There's a Second de Sitter Inflationary Era which Ends when the 4D Space is Reduced to a 3D Space at Nu/3, whereby the Spin 6 Planck masses break into 4 Primordial Spin 3/2 Gravitinos in a Third Anti de Sitter Inflationary Era that Terminates at the Big Bang's White Hole Radius of 7Nu/12 = 7.18 meters, which continues to Expand with the Emission of a 4D Primordial Gravitational Wave that was Generated by 2^5Nu/4 = 2.442996015 x 10^76 Heavy Higgs bosons.)

4. GOD'S PROOF Of GOD Via GOD'S PROOF Of WHO I AM: Yesterday 7-27-23 produced the following most amazing, incredible event of my life! I was posting replies to a fellow's query on Neil deGrasse Tyson's Facebook page about the Big Bang with The Sixth Class of String Theory. I then got to the following post:

Travis Boothe 4: The 11-21-22 date I posted this on my Facebook homepage is the Culmination of Three Revelations that define my Destiny in life and as such are the ultimate example of God's Cosmically Coordinated Coincidence Control that was Meant to be Fulfilled on that day. My late partner A.J. Meyer and I are the Two "Witnesses" of Revelation 11. A.J.'s model of the universe came from his vision of Revelation 21, while God's Definition of God in Revelation 21:6 refers to the Beginning and End of the Anti de Sitter Universe so Fulfills that Revelation in the 21st Century. And finally my Prophesy of Jesus revealing Himself as Christ the Messiah on His 12-25-2122 22nd birthday, hence Fulfilling the last book of the Bible, Revelation 22.

5: It took me 11 days to collate, write and edit the final above copy, only adding the 5D to 4D solution to wave-function collapse in the first days after the 11-21-22 post. I answered the top two questions posed at the Strings 2000 physics conference so am 22 years ahead of every physicist on this planet. Most of the papers I wrote over the first 20 years are available on the Summary page at my 241mumbers.com website and the papers on the cosmology I wrote over the last two years are available in serial order on my Facebook page, culminating in the 11-21-22 paper

In a nutshell, the above is from the concluding sections of the preceding chapter 1 - God's Unified Five Dimensional Universe as - I DID NOT POST THE ABOVE, GOD DID!!!!!!!!!!!

They do not live by nor do they endorse the Teachings of Jesus Christ. Humility, Compassion, Love of your neighbor... none of that do they illustrate. Their religiosity is one of convenience. They are some of the more dangerous people on Earth, and they will kill Christianity and the Republican Party.

So in summary let us briefly update and address the two central themes in Thomas Paine's precocious quote: "It has been the scheme of the Christian Church, and of all the other invented systems of religion, to hold man in ignorance of the Creator, as it is of governments to hold man in the ignorance of his rights. The systems of the one are as false as those of the other, and are calculated for mutual support." 

So let's talk about the relation between religion and polytrix in the US government. We have a Supreme Court with six Catholics, steering religion and politics to the far right, away from the Creator. We have a new speaker of the House who openly wants to establish a 'moral' Christian Nationalism run by the next Republican president. Who will implement a fascist plan called Project 2025, as outlined at the end of Thom Hartmann's historical analysis of what led up to The Shocking GOP Plan to Dismantle the American Government. And all the while you've watched the Republican Party champion the idea of "freedom" while you have also watched the same party openly assault various freedoms, like the freedom to vote, freedom to choose, freedom to marry who you want, freedom for your children's teachers and librarians to have them read what they want, freedom to form unions and so on. If this has been a source of confusion, then your assessments of what Republicans mean by freedom were likely too generous. Here is what they mean: 1. The freedom to tell people what to do. 2. Freedom from being told what to do.

This isn’t about a man “controlling” his wife. Women do not need to be controlled. This is about a Supreme Court justice putting his or her foot down when a spouse acts in a way that damages the reputation of that justice and by extension, the Supreme Court. To hold such an elevated position requires a certain amount of dignity and respect for the institution, which is sorely lacking in both the Alito household and the Thomas household.

A priest (and a good friend) once explained the difference between fundamentalist religious belief and the the Christian faith which he held: the one sees God as the Ruler, the “God of laws”, while the other sees God as the God of love. Neither is exclusionary but a mix of the two.

Needless to say, this simple-sounding theoretical construct becomes very complicated when you attempt to apply it to how to live the “good life”.

It is all too easy to condemn the Samuel Alitos of this world as smug and patronizing — I want to avoid making any slurs against his personal beliefs but just suggest that in allowing his legal judgment to be captured by his beliefs is unpardonable in a Supreme Court justice. Alito sits on the Supreme Court but he is not our High Priest.

While you're not wrong, they are specifically crafting these decisions to take away the rights of women and people in marginalized groups at this point in time. The long con is to take away everyone's rights that aren't already part of the ruling class, but they are targeting women, people of color, and the LGBTQIA+ specifically right now. Just like with BLM - yes, all lives matter, but black lives are the ones being specifically affected by the policies and practices the BLM protests were addressing. Your overgeneralizing of the problems being discussed is at best disingenuous, and at worst actively harmful by preventing action because of apathy.

On your second point, they already have the modern "bread and circuses" in place. Just look at how much "reality TV" exists, especially the "audience participation" ones where the people at home can cast meaningless votes as if studio executives would ever allow the unwashed masses to determine any kind of outcome. It serves to keep those masses entertained, and also gives them the illusion of some form of control, while training them to subconsciously expect their vote to not matter. It's truly insidious, if you take the time to look at it with a cynical eye.

Poor little white supremacists are scared.

What they don’t realize is that many young people see the destruction of our planet and don’t want to bring a child into a world that’s becoming increasingly uninhabitable. It’s a rational and wise decision.

Right on Danielle. Several years ago (pre-Dobbs) I passed by the Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis where a large group of anti-choice folks were hogging up the sidewalk. Normally I would just pass on by, but with some time on my hands that day I stopped by to talk with them. My first question to the first group I approached was "Do you all love children?" Everyone answered a very affirmative yes! Next I asked "Then how many unwanted children have each of you adopted?" Of the five or six folks in the group said that they had. Next I reminded them that everyday in the St. Louis area there are about 4,500 children in Children and Family Services ready to be adopted. Check it out. Were they ready to step up to the plate and help these kids? No answer. Had any of them donated money to help these kids? No answer. Had any of them volunteered to help at the various places these children lived? No answer. Stone silence from all of them. Most were wearing crosses and religious clothing and handing out other religious materials. I spoke to them in a very respectful way but I could see that my logic about helping kids was falling on deaf ears and they were mumbling things like liar, liberal, baby killer, etc., etc. I left them with the challenge of what do they think Jesus would do to help those kids?

I'm new here and post any number of important papers on selected responses to folks who post on the specific topic at hand. This read is the first two paragraph of titled So in summary.... follows two other reads titled FIVE PROOFS OF GOD followed by My religious history and intention of uniting God's religions, which is the end of Chapter 11 in an extended 17 chapter book titled The Unified 11 Dimensional Field Solution. FIVE PROOFS is the Preface to that and an 11 chapter book titled God's Unified 11 Dimensional Universe.

What most who want to legislate our medical care do not know is ANYTHING about the risks and life threatening emergencies that present in pregnancy. Toxemia, is fatal, for example, but I am not knowledgeable about all the ways that fetuses can be saved, along with the woman carrying them. but such care is not always about abortion, idiotically and tragically, the ignorant are in a position to make decisions that ban all treatment, focusing on "killing babies": Not preventing an unplanned implantation of an 8 celled blastocyst. Not every fertile woman is even a woman, and can be a minor child, not able to support herself or a child, with few legal rights.

So in summary let us briefly update and address the two central themes in Thomas Paine's precocious quote: "It has been the scheme of the Christian Church, and of all the other invented systems of religion, to hold man in ignorance of the Creator, as it is of governments to hold man in the ignorance of his rights. The systems of the one are as false as those of the other, and are calculated for mutual support." 

So let's talk about the relation between religion and polytrix in the US government. We have a Supreme Court with six Catholics, steering religion and politics to the far right, away from the Creator. We have a new speaker of the House who openly wants to establish a 'moral' Christian Nationalism run by the next Republican president. Who will implement a fascist plan called Project 2025, as outlined at the end of Thom Hartmann's historical analysis of what led up to The Shocking GOP Plan to Dismantle the American Government. And all the while you've watched the Republican Party champion the idea of "freedom" while you have also watched the same party openly assault various freedoms, like the freedom to vote, freedom to choose, freedom to marry who you want, freedom for your children's teachers and librarians to have them read what they want, freedom to form unions and so on.

Sean Sheeter ; Don't forget the power to rob US with impunity and avoid paying taxes with little to no oversight, getting so wealthy that they can buy our government ; Speakership to "Supreme" court! we can have a convicted felon, who is running the Congress and supreme court, and some lower courts, complete with complicit sycophants in power as office holders, as he avoids going to trial while running for the highest office in the land!!! "Our" government is full of traitors who should be purged with the 14th amendment, section 3 Disqualification clause: but that can't happen as long as the "Supreme " court is criminally ignoring the rule of law by sidestepping our remedy. They free themselves to ruin our Union by destroying Justice, and allowing the coup to continue! If the old but still on the books Insurrection Act can be used by our current legitimate President, this is the time for it, if ever there was! After all, if the "right" can use old anti pornography rules to deny women contraception medication ; why can't the Humans ( as in "The people", not corporations) use an equally old law that is still on the books, to stop an actual coup?

Or, if in an unlikely debate that he actually shows up for. He drools 🤤 and looks and sounds like a fool! My guess is that there will be some last minute "reason" that he can't make it. Same with the second scheduled debate! The biggest loser! And not in a good way!

Those of "The Gay Old Pedophile" party are no longer what I call "normal humans." I feel bad for the ignorant cult members, but they now KNOW their morbidly obese godking is a CIVILY LIABLE RAPIST and a CONVICTED CRIMINAL. (I am 130,000% convinced that Bunkerboy was NEVER an even "normal IQ" individual. He was ALWAYS "exceptional," which replaced the term "retarded" within the past twenty years.)

What is especially troubling about Dobbs is that these Justices testified under oath in their confirnation hearings that Roe was settled law. That's perjury and a basis for impeachment.

They should replay THAT recording on the media. Over and over again to remind everyone what LIARS and Hypocrites they are. There is NO ETHICS in the Supreme Court.

YES!! I’ve been chewing on that since the overturned Roe V Wade.

That’s what happens when you give people power with no limits and no consequences for lying, taking bribes, or trying to install a dictator.

So the secret’s out. Alito was just waiting for a case to discard precedent and his opinion is nothing but rationalizations made to justify his preordained result. He’s an imposter who should be impeached and removed. While that’s not politically possible right now, he can and should be held up to public ridicule daily until he disappears from public life.

Expand full comment

Email your Democratic Congress person. Ask them to draw up Articles of Impeachment against Alito and Thomas on the grounds of not upholding the Constitution as written. And to make sure they publicize this action. Nothing will happen this year with the do-nothing 118th Congress, BUT, if publicized it will help some voters realize how important their choice is.

DEM. Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee has introduced a resolution to censure Alito before Congress, and he is advertising it. I receive his newsletter. Just so all of you disheartened Dems hear some good news, Rep. Cohen serves the broad Memphis district, and he is the ONLY Dem. left serving in office in the horrible, corrupt, criminal, gun-loving, school-vouchers loving rotten filth that is the RED STATE of Tennessee! You want to know who (not my) Repug rep. MARK GREEN IS CONSORTING WITH?? ERIK PRINCE OF BLACKWATER INFAMY AND HIS "OFF LEASH" HORRIFYING "CHAT" GROUP!! Tennessee is one of the most diabolical states in the Union! Please don't ever bring your tourist dollars here!

Richard Friedman ; " He’s an imposter", and a traitor who violated his oath to the Constitution. Disabled by the 14th amendment section 3, disqualification clause! 'Just' because they want to ignore this does not mean it does not exist! He should be removed from the bench! it is a lie repeated in the media that Supreme Court justices have "lifetime tenure". Only some vague statement about Having "Good behavior", to remain on the bench! Ha!
