As long as Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Chief Justice Roberts and other legitimately appointed Justices have protection. Kavanaugh and Gorsuch are not eligible for protection as they were appointed by an illegitimacy elected President who stole the 2016 election with the aid of a hostile foreign government, Wikileaks whose founder who is under an extradition order for releasing classified information to Trump’s campaign, and given millions in laundered illegal campaign contributions from foreign governments. They should removed from the bench on the grounds that Trump had no legal authority to appoint them.
Their Senate confirmations were a kangaroo court. These are lifetime appointments and the cannot be allowed to stand.
I’m all in favor of SCOTUS receiving Secret Service protection. But the Senate refused to hold confirmation hearings on Merrick Garland - a legitimate nominee made by a President with the authority to nominate him. This was purely political and has no legal precedent.
Thirteen (13) presidents have filled Supreme Court vacancies during a presidential election year. Our first president, George Washington, established this precedent. In 1796, Washington nominated Samuel Chase and Oliver Ellsworth to two vacancies on the Supreme Court.
There have always been clashes with Justices by protesters over decisions, But legally appointed nominees were not given confirmation hearings, and illegal nominees were pushed through against the will of the people.
The government derives it’s power from the people. But when the will of the people has been subverted by a corrupt executive and legislative branch, they must be overturned and replaced by legitimate nominees, not political appointees.
The system is broken and the only way to recover the rule of law is to unseat McConnell in 2020, defeat Trump, rescind all his lame ass executive orders and judicial appointments, reinstated the Iran Nuclear Agreement, opt back in to the Paris Climate Accord, put an end to the trade war with China, upend Trump’s tax reforms so we can begin to pay down the record deficit he created by allowing the wealthy and mega corporations to pay virtually nothing, placing the burden on the middle class and those living below the poverty line, adjust the poverty line to reflect the actual cost of living, restore foreign aide to Central America, reverse his white nationalist agenda, restore DACA and end this war on immigrants and asylum seekers and normalize government by the people and for the people once again.
All evidence that Trump ever held office should be erased, but well documented by historians as a cautionary tale of what can happen without election security and an unnecessary electoral college. We can never allow a despotic, megalomaniac , narcissistic, pathological liar to jeopardize our democracy and our national security again!
Here endeth the lesson.
