    It seems that a billionaire GOP donor has spent a small fortune on vacations for Ginni and Clarence Thomas.

     
    Sorry, he's absolutely not going to be impeached in an election year. That would be a total sheet show. Best bet is hope Biden wins the election and pressure him to leave of his own volition during the next term. He's currently the oldest justice at 75, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him retire in a couple of years.

    Also, Alito is 73, so he's not far behind.
    Oh yeah, I realize nothing will happen this year. But if the Dems take the House, I would like to see him impeached. Maybe if they are serious about it he will resign to avoid the embarrassment.

    A big driver for 2016 was filling that SCOTUS seat

    People knew full what what Trump was and what he would unleash but they wanted that conservative justice and they got it

    Dems can do the same and make scotus picks an issue

    Doubtful. I mean, the House could impeach him, but he'd have to be convicted by 2/3rds of the Senate. Good luck with that.

    Him resigning to avoid embarrassment would be ideal tho.

    Yes, I know. But the embarrassment would be real. A girl can dream….
     
    At the hospital we weren’t allowed to take an ink pen from vendors. Because my husband owned his own business, I had to sign a form every year stating that the hospital wasn’t doing any business with his company. (we could have probably done some printing for them, and saved then some money, but it wasn’t allowed).

    This is what is infuriating about Thomas. The little people abide by sometimes draconian ethics rules, and he just greeds out and grabs everything he can. And nothing happens to him.

    Well, Thomas aside, the report about the Justices was actually pretty disturbing overall. They've all accepted gifts in varying amounts and they aren't small gifts... worth thousands of dollars, concert tickets, sporting events, trips, and on and on. I don't think SCOTUS justices should be allowed to accept gifts of that size. I mean, I work for a federal agency and we can't give each other gifts worth more than $20 iirc. I think they should bump it up to $100 because it's been stuck at $20 forever. But accepting gifts worth thousands as a justice and it's treated as no big deal is disturbing.

    I don't think it's disturbing at all for a justice to accept concert tickets, sporting events, trips, and on and on, unless they fail to disclose it and/or do not recuse themselves for any case that anyone they accepted a gift from will benefit or be harmed by the ruling in the case.

    Jackson accepting concert tickets from Beyonce is not disturbing or a problem at all, because she disclosed it. If a case of Beyonce vs Swift ever reaches the Supreme Court and Jackson doesn't recuse herself, then it's an issue.

    I think the rule should be clear cut. They shouldn't be allowed to accept gifts beyond a certain value, say $100. Not any different than many other federal employees. I mean, if they disclose they've taken millions from whoever, that's OK? Not in my book. Just set a hard cap and if they don't disclose or get caught taking gifts over the allowed amount they should be subject to sanctions or penalties.
     
    The wife of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, Martha-Ann Alito, complained about having to look at a Pride flag, according to a secret recording.

    Alito made the remark during the Supreme Court Historical Society’s annual dinner on June 3 to Lauren Windsor, who was posing as a conservative supporter. It comes amid a string of controversies for the conservative Supreme Court justice and his wife.

    “You know what I want?” the justice’s wife said according to the recording. “I want a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag because I have to look across the lagoon at the Pride flag for the next month.”

    She went on to say that after stating her need for a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag, her husband responded: “Oh, please, don’t put up a flag.”

    “He’s like, ‘Oh please don’t put up a flag.’ I said, ‘I won’t do it because I’m deferring to you. But when you are free of this nonsense, I’m putting it up and I’m going to send them a message every day. Maybe every week, I’ll be changing the flags,” she said.

    She added that she would come up with her own flag, which would be white with yellow and orange flames and read, in Italian, “shame.”…….

    She sounds like a peach. Her and her spouse are two old arse, bitter, whack job Christian curmudgeons.

    I hope the local lgbtq+ group organizes a PRIDE flash mob in front of their house. Giver her something to really complain about. :smilielol:

    She tried to get Roberts too. He didn't seem to take the bait.

    Good for Roberts. If only he could muster that spirit to actually reign in his 2 problems on the court.
     
    She’s not a writer for Rolling Stone, she didn’t even write the article as a guest writer. Just more lies from your sources and by repeating them, from you.

    It's not the Rolling Stone she was writing for, it's the Rilling Stone. Maybe that's why you haven't heard of it. 😂

    "She went on to say that after stating her need for a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag, her husband responded: “Oh, please, don’t put up a flag.”"

    This seems to support Justice Alito's claim that the flags were his wife's doing and most likely not supported by him.
