The legitimization of delegitimization

Time and past time all Real Americans just stopped caring what they think or say—about this, about that, about anything whatsoever.

Ooooooh… Al Franken Thinks The Court is Illegitimate
During a recent episode of his podcast, the disgraced former U.S. Senator Al Franken, who resigned in 2017 following a sexual harassment scandal, asserted that the Supreme Court is “illegitimate” and referred to Chief Justice John Roberts as a “villain.”

Franken cited the contentious confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who was nominated by former President Trump, and the court’s ruling last year to overturn Roe v. Wade as a basis for his statement.

“The way they didn’t take up [Obama nominee Merrick] Garland and on saying, ‘It’s an election year,’ and then they, of course, put in Coney Barrett like eight days before the election. Then, of course, Dobbs and abortion.”

Franken continued, “I think the Chief Justice is actually much more culpable for this division than people think,” Franken argued. “I think Roberts is much more the villain in this than people give him credit for.”

That’s a rather bizarre position because Roberts has become the de facto swing vote on the court and was notoriously opposed to overturning Roe v. Wade.

The radical left, of which Franken is a part, has been making mountains out of molehills regarding so-called financial scandals involving Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch. But, unfortunately, they are using these allegations as a pretext for subjecting the court to congressional oversight—which, I must add, is unconstitutional.

While the accusations against Gorsuch and Thomas are unfounded and lack legal and ethical justification, the allegations against liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor are not. Sotomayor received $3.6 million from Penguin Random House, a publishing company that had business before the court. Furthermore, she opted not to recuse herself from the related proceedings, while Justice Stephen Breyer did recuse himself since he had received money from the same publisher.

I don’t think we’ll ever hear Franken argue that Sotomayor delegitimized the Supreme Court. Nor will any other Democrat, for that matter. Their objective isn’t to enhance the ethical standards the court must uphold but to force conservative justices off the court so they can retake the ideological majority on the nation’s highest court.

Well, I mean, D’UH. Contra their own lofty-sounding eructations claiming otherwise, they care not a whit about principle, ethics, or other nebulous, gauzy vagaries. What they DO care about—first, last, always, and exclusively—is expanding their power, getting their way, and plowing over anything or anyone that might conceivably hinder or thwart them in that eternal quest.

Whenever a shitlib like Franken starts in lecturing you about “principle” and such-like, better carefully check your six right away. Because there’s sure to be a big, brass cock aimed directly at your fourth point of contact—wielded by a Leftard, with malicious intent aplenty. If you indulge them by pretending to care, you only get more of the same for your trouble. Best to just tell them straightaway to go take a flying fuck at a plate-glass window instead, and have done with it.

  1. Hmmmm, and if people call Brandon illegitimate, it’s “treason” and banned by social media, even though there’s much more data to prove that the 2020 election was rigged. I’m really happy every day I don’t have to hear anything about Al Franken.

  2. I see that Al Franken has gone back to his previous profession – stand-up comedy.

  3. I see that Al Franken has gone back to his previous profession – stand-up comedy. The “donation” taken by Sotomayor, and her refusal to recuse herself in the case involving the donor, is a clear violation of judicial ethics: “Rule 1.2: Promoting Confidence in the Judiciary – A judge shall act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the independence,* integrity,* and impartiality* of the judiciary, and shall avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety.” https://www.americanbar.org/groups/professional_responsibility/publications/model_code_of_judicial_conduct/mcjc_canon_1/rule1_2promotingconfidenceinthejudiciary/
    Unfortunately, the US Supreme Court hasn’t adopted a code of ethics nor has there been one since it was created – here’s the closest that they have come to doing that – https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Letter%20to%20Chairman%20Durbin%2004.25.2023.pdf#page=2

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
