And you and your wife are a big reason for that.

Thomas can just fark off and DIAF already.
 
2022-05-14 2:01:14 PM  
Alito leaked it, Thomas knows it, he's trying for the Oscar in crocodile tears.

Sedition still cool with him tho

So that's what get's greenlit these days? "Duh"?

FTFA: "The institution that I'm a part of, if someone said that one line of one opinion would be leaked by anyone, you'd say, 'Oh, that's impossible. No one would ever do that.' There is such a belief in the rule of law, a belief in the court, a belief in what we were doing that that was verboten," Thomas said. "It was beyond anyone's understanding, or at least anyone's imagination, that someone would do that."

Clarence, go fark yourself you disingenuous shiatweasel.  That there is fault with the institution is in part because you have brought fault to it.

He's right. given who led the committee hearings on Justice Thomas, this is Joe Biden's era.

Or, given the voting tendencies for the last three justices, it's Joe Manchin's era.
 
2022-05-14 2:13:08 PM  
Thomas was interviewed by former law clerk John Yoo, a law professor at the University of California at Berkeley and a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute

Just for reference, that's the John Yoo that told the Bush administration that torture was okay. So for once, Thomas isn't the biggest scumbag in the room.

""I do think what happened at the court is tremendously bad," Thomas said. "I wonder how long we're going to have these institutions at the rate we're undermining them, and then I wonder when they're gone or they are destabilized, what we'll have as a country -- and I don't think that the prospects are good if we continue to lose them."

...says the husband of the person who openly supported the insurrection on January 6.

fark you.

Explain to me why Justices can be paid for appearances? Didn't the Founders generally frown on peddling influence?
 
2022-05-14 2:22:55 PM  
From the "no shiat, Sherlock" department....

But seriously, Thomas has been the least productive member of the SCOTUS ever. He spent most of his time on the court copying off of Scalia's paper and has simply been a "present" vote along partisan lines otherwise.

If only we'd listened to Anita Hill....

I already miss the days when The Supremes not speaking publicly was the norm.  Shut up Clarence.

Wow. Brilliant.

I'm going to find a pen jot that one down.

LOL John "torture is fine" Yoo interviewed Clarence "have my pube in your Coke" Thomas about how trust has been damaged at the Court. JFC this country is farked

...and your confirmation was a sign of the deterioration of the Court and the party.

I find the butthurt over the SCOTUS leak absurd.

These aren't trade secrets.
This isn't a private institution.
This isn't a case of national security.

It's the people's court. And any arguments should be based on logical interpretations of constitutional law.
So ... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The real problem is there's a class of politicians and political hacks (on the Supreme Court) who want to subjugate or allow for the subjugation of most of us without our noticing.

You know, you are free to quit, Tommy.

Don't let the door hit ya.

Yeah. These chodes go on hunting trips with rich donors and Republican potentates, they go to secretive retreats suggestive of illicit (sexual) activity (where Scalia died), they are infested with all manner of conflicts of interest. But leak of an opinion is the worst thing conceivable.

It's all about the trappings of decorum and not actual decorum. Like how Rehnquist put those dipshiat naval stripes on his robes because he liked a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. They're a bunch of preening goons.

Time to do some manscaping and mail a baggie of pubes to the Supreme Court.

Every accusation is a confession. A Republican did it and the most likely culprit is Thomas and/or his wife. And he would have had to have shown it to her.

Have fun with your Magic Miscegenation Tour, Clarence.

And that's my solitary legal joke. Enjoy.

The leak, he said, had eroded trust, and "you begin to look over your shoulder. It's like kind of an infidelity, that you can explain it, but you can't undo it."

The leak didn't erode that trust, you dummy. The biased nature of the Supreme court is the problem. GOP farkery in the SC selection process has eroded the trust of the American people in it. Be prepared to deal with the problems that lack of trust caused.

You sure about that? The American people have consistently rewarded the GOP for their farkery with the court.

Gunny gave it to her friends to show off. One of them leaked it to a reporter to show off.

It's not some attack on the institution or a gambit to strengthen or weaken the opinion itself or affect the midterms. It's just information following the path of least resistance right through a known gap in the court's integrity.
 
2022-05-14 4:49:31 PM  
Thomas should never be confused with "one of the nine wisest judges in the US."
