Election News News 43 is here.
Is the following account from a reliable source? I have no idea.
From the Hal Turner Radio Show:
"Hal, as you know I am a clerk for one of the Justices on SCOTUS. Today was like nothing we have ever seen. The justices are arguing loudly behind closed doors.
The Justices met in a closed and sealed room, as is standard.
Usually it is very calm, however today we could hear screaming all the way down the hall.
They met in person, because they didn't trust telephonic meeting as secure.
Chief Justice Roberts was screaming
"Are you going to be responsible for the rioting if we hear this case?"
"Don't tell me about Bush v. Gore, we weren't dealing with riots then"
"You are forgetting what your role here is Neil, and I don't want to hear from the two junior justices anymore. I will tell you how you will vote."
Justice Clarence Thomas says: "This is the end of Democracy, John."
When they left the room, Roberts, the Libs and Kavanugh had big smiles. Alito and Thomas were visibly upset. ACB and Gorsuch didn't seem fazed at all."
The SCOTUS Texas decision reeks of cowardice and treachery. As a behind-the-scenes account, then, the account above is at least plausible, if it is also quite pat. "I don't want to hear from the two junior justices...." and the "big smiles" sound over the top...but who knows? To get to the decision we got, a discussion or process something like this undoubtedly took place.
Interestingly enough, these remarks were related on the floor of the Texas Statehouse "during the nomination process to submit the Texas elections," as per Conservative Treehouse and recorded by C-SPAN.
Still, I was going to let the whole thing go until Lin Wood tweeted the following:
Given Wood's prominence as a libel lawyer, this seems quite noteworthy.
Then again as always with this kind of stuff, there can be efforts under way to discredit (sucker) a courageous but voluble personage like Wood with bad information.
We'll just keep an eye peeled.
Meanwhile, though, we all know that SCOTUS is subject to the same subversion as every other US institution, and is no longer able to hide its corruption.
