    Palm Beach Circuit Court Judge Renatha Francis has already been seen checking out the Florida Supreme Court’s underground parking garage by St. Augustine Street; she let it be known she wants a coveted spot near the elevator to the justices’ chambers. Space in the exclusive, heavily fortified garage won’t be available until Aug. 31, when Justice Alan Lawson retires. But Francis can count on getting what she wants, according to a court insider who communicated with Florida Bulldog on condition of anonymity because the Lawson succession plan is top secret. “There is talk here that [Gov. Ron] DeSantis told the...

    Like most people with any shred of decency, I was quite pleased (though also quite surprised) by the recent SCOTUS leak that suggests that the highest court may well overturn Roe v. Wade. If this ends up taking place (and so far, the conservative justices have indicated that the attempted bullying by the Left isn’t working), it’s exciting for a number of reasons. Obviously, the fact that defederalising abortion and placing it back into the purview of the states - where it belongs - will result in many, many little babies’ lives being saved. But what I’d like to discuss...
  • 'I wonder how long we're going to have these institutions': Justice Thomas warns that leak of abortion draft judgment could herald the END of the Supreme Court as he suggests leak came from clerk and takes dig at recent appointees

    Justice Clarence Thomas on Friday compared the leak of fellow Justice's Samuel Alito's draft opinion, which would overturn abortion protections under Roe v Wade, to 'infidelity.' Thomas, 73, said that at a conference that the leak would weaken the public's trust in the Supreme Court as an institution, calling the unauthorized disclosure of deliberations 'tremendously bad.' In his remarks, the conservative justice, who has long called for overturning Roe, hinted that a liberal clerk may have leaked Alito's draft opinion, and lamented that partisan rancor has grown more entrenched on the high court. Thomas pondered: 'I wonder how long we're...
  • Watch: Pro-Abortion Protesters Call for ‘Mandatory Vasectomies’ Outside Samuel Alito Event

    ARLINGTON, Virginia — Pro-abortion protesters outside George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School Thursday afternoon called for “mandatory vasectomies” and claimed that “the Bible itself tells you how to perform abortions.” About 30 abortion advocates gathered outside the front entrance to the law school in Arlington, Virginia, to protest an address set to be given by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito at the school. The address was being given by Alito remotely from the court building while fallout from a draft opinion overturing infamous pro-abortion case Roe v. Wade — written by Alito — was leaked, leading leftists to gather...

    U.S.—After having their homes surrounded by hordes of bloodthirsty commie protestors, the five originalist judges on the Supreme Court reached out for protection from the government, but were denied. Left with no other choice, they have activated the Kyle Rittenhouse signal to summon America's sharpshooting protector before it's too late.

    What's worse, attacking people's homes and neighborhoods or disrupting religious services? The answer, of course, is both are completely unacceptable. These are not things normal people need to debate. A man's home is his castle. Does that ring a bell? It's an English legal concept adopted by the American founders and reflected in the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment. Families shelter in homes to protect each other from the outside world. It's a sanctuary. Accosting people in churches is even worse; they're literally sacred places. Anyone who violates these fundamental concepts will pay a steep price politically. More importantly, anyone taking...

    In the storm that erupted over the leaked draft opinion of Justice Samuel Alito, which would overturn Roe v. Wade, a secondary alarm has arisen among our elites. If Roe is overturned, it is said, a whole raft of Supreme Court rulings rooted in the same principles and legal reasoning could be overturned as well. Pillars of our progressive society could come crashing down. In an op-ed in The Washington Post, legal scholars Melissa Murray and Leah Litman wrote that Alito's draft opinion "declares that the Constitution 'makes no reference to abortion' and argues that abortion rights were 'entirely unknown...

    On Thursday night, Justice Samuel Alito spoke remotely as he addressed a crowd at the Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University, according to Tyler O'Neil at Fox News. All eyes have been on the justice since POLITICO reported on a leaked draft opinion that he authored signaling that the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade. O'Neil also cited coverage from Robert Barnes and Lauren Lumpkin with The Washington Post, who took a different tone with their headline and reporting. "Alito reluctant to discuss state of Supreme Court after Roe leak," their headline read. As they...

    Hours after a draft suggesting that the US Supreme Court is likely to quash the historic Roe v. Wade judgment that had awarded women the right to abortion, surfaced, Chief Justice John Roberts on Tuesday ordered an investigation into the leak. Meanwhile, social media was abuzz with the identity of the person behind the leak of the draft. As reported earlier, the leaked draft of the opinion of the justices showed that as many as five supported striking down the landmark verdict, including Justice Samuel Alito, who penned the draft, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney. Three...

    These days it seems that Saul Alinsky has taken over the Democrat Party. This is no longer the party of JFK---not even close. JFK said in his Inaugural Address, “the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.” There is no God, says Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), the Marxist community organizer par excellence from Chicago. He perfected many of the “by any means necessary” tactics the left is using today---tactics on full display these days in the wake of challenges to Roe v. Wade. Alinsky deeply influenced some key leaders of the...

    After angry public reaction to the leaked Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito draft opinion on reversing Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas said: "We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don't like. We can't be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that." The kind of events to which Thomas referred include pro-abortion activists blocking church entrances and protesting at the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Alito. It is difficult...

Stay away from homes and families of elected officials and members of the court,” the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman told CNN when he was asked about his thoughts on the protests.

"By all means, threaten the justice and his family! But if you set one foot on the school board treasurer's lawn, it's a one-way trip to Gitmo."

    WASHINGTON, DC — “We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into give you the outcomes you want,” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told a gathering on Thursday on Roe v. Wade. “The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.” Thomas was speaking to the judicial conference Eleventh Circuit. Each federal appellate circuit is under the supervision of one of the nine Supreme Court justices. A Georgia native, Thomas is circuit justice over that court, which has jurisdiction over Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. The elephant in the room that no one can ignore is the leaked...

    Nearly 2 out of 3 Americans questioned in a new poll said that the Supreme Court should uphold the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. The survey published Sunday found that 64 percent of respondents said the nation’s highest court should keep the decision the way it is, while 36 percent disagreed. Eighty-four percent of those who want Roe upheld said that overturning it would move the country in the wrong direction, and 82 percent said reversing it would be dangerous to women and for Americans’ rights.

    And what has happened to Chief Justice Roberts, anyway? Old Joe Biden said Tuesday that Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was “really quite a radical decision” and “a fundamental shift in American jurisprudence,” but as usual, he was lying. Alito’s decision appears to be carefully reasoned, firmly based on what the Constitution actually says, and written with a full recognition of the nature and importance of judicial precedent. What is unprecedented is the leak that has allowed us to evaluate this decision before the Court has actually ruled on the case at hand, Dobbs...

    Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr was adamant that the person who leaked a drafted opinion on abortion from the Supreme Court should be behind bars. The leaked draft opinion in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which was published by Politico last week and later confirmed by Chief Justice John Roberts, revealed Justice Samuel Alito had written that the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling must be overruled to "return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives." Roberts noted that it did not, however, represent the current or final opinion of the court. Barr called the...

    Buckle up. America is in for a rough ride if the leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court regarding abortion turns out to be reflective of the final copy. In the long run, this opinion may end up healing the country, at least to some extent. A morally charged and complicated issue like abortion is best decided in the political arena. Allowing the voters of each state to decide the rules for themselves will not satisfy everyone. It may satisfy almost no one since there will be outlier states on both sides that will impose rules unpopular with the other....
