On Tuesday conservative SCOTUS Justice Roberts put out a statement bemoaning the supposed "leak" of the Court's overturning of Roe v Wade, saying, "To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed. The work of the Court will not be affected in any way,"   Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

The INTEGRITY OF THEIR OPERATIONS?? WHAT INTEGRITY??

Does he speak of the "integrity" behind conservative reversal after reversal of PRECEDENCE long established by the Court?

Is he speaking of the "integrity" they demonstrated when, in 2013 they rolled back the protections afforded American citizens by the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965?

Or perhaps the rulings of his conservative justices that served to undermine, mail in voting, unions, and pandemic response safe protocols?

Does he speak of the "integrity" of the Court when Justices Scalia and Thomas scurried off to meetings with conservative think tanks, and strategy planners?

Or maybe the "integrity" shown when their conservative colleague, Justice Scalia (may he rot in hell) suggested Black students belonged in "slower track" schools.

No doubt he is also speaking of the "integrity" shown when Clarence Thomas took the unprecedented step of actually POSING with a candidate for office, Hershel Walker.

Or perhaps the "integrity" shown by conservative justices who deliberately LIED TO THE FACES OF EVERY AMERICAN when questioned about their positions on Roe v Wade.

And the "integrity" they showed TIME AFTER TIME, when the freely handed out PRO-TRUMP ruling after ruling via their secret "shadow docket," often without even a commentary.

Or could it have been the "integrity" of Thomas' wife, Ginni Thomas, who was not only an advocate for, but an actual PARTICIPANT in an attempted COUP AND OVERTHROW OF THIS NATIONS DEMOCRACY?

.

Integrity?? Frankly, at this point, I doubt the CONSERVATIVE ARM OF THE SCOTUS WOULD KNOW "INTEGRITY" IF IT SNUCK UP AND BIT THEM IN THE ***.

 MEANWHILE:

Are Alito and a Corrupt Court Sandbagging Us?  Law professors Melissa Murray of New York University School of Law and Leah Litman of the University of Michigan Law School recently wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Post titled, “Alito’s aggressive ruling would reach way beyond Roe.”

They wrote that Alito’s opinion implicitly invited “a flurry of challenges to other precedents, including cases protecting contraception and LGBTQ civil rights,” and the opinion’s “indignant tone and aggressive reasoning make clear how empowered this conservative majority believes itself to be.”

'Intellectually bankrupt': Alito's Roe v Wade opinion trashed by constitutional scholar     On Sunday, constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe had little good to say about a draft opinion from conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito that attempts to make the case that the 1973 Roe v Wade ruling should be overturned.

According to Tribe, the Harvard University Professor Emeritus, the ruling isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

Al Franken Believes That Justice Alito Is Behind SCOTUS Leak And He's Very Proud of How Crazy It Is

How ‘originalist’ Supreme Court Justices are concocting a ‘new age of oppression’ 
  “There are no inviolable rules for those bent on oppression,” Blow warns. “There is only winning, at all costs, no matter the casualties. Conservatives would abide a boor like Donald Trump because he could give them the judges they wanted, the judges who are now poised to reverse federal abortion protections.”

Nothing Is A Better Distraction From A Radically Political Supreme Court Than A 'Totally Important' Game Of Whodunit

Roberts is still a conservative. So he's a **** conservative. Which means, as far as abortion goes, he would prefer to chip away at it in the federal system, rather than have his legacy be that of a radical ultra-orthodox christian **** who allowed his religious beliefs to affect his judicial judgment and opinion.

Roberts needs to maintain the pretence that SCOTUS is more dignified than say - the Senate - or a pig wallowing in sh-t.

Good luck with that.

The primary reason why the SCOTUS is less than digified is because of the three mediocrities put on the court by Trump and McConnell.  McConnell is actually more responsible than Trump, for refusing to process the appointment of Garland and ramming through the appointment of Barrett
