Alito reluctantly gives first update on SCOTUS status after Roe leak

Speaking publicly for the first time since his explosive draft opinion on the reversal of Roe v. Wade was leaked, Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. gave a brief update on the status of the court, even as pro-abortion protestors continue to gather outside his home.

Justice Alito addressed the Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University from a remote location seven miles away on Thursday — an indication that fears for the safety of Supreme Court justices have elevated since Politico published Alito’s draft opinion.

According to The Washington Post, Alito gave “a detailed examination of statutory textualism” and renewed the debate over a decision that claims gay and transgender workers are protected under federal discrimination law before being asked about the enormous elephant in the room – the 1973 Roe v. Wade case and the disturbing fallout since the leak.

 

The last questioner of the evening wanted to know if the justices could still sit down and break bread together.

“I think it would just be really helpful for all of us to hear, personally, are you all doing okay in these very challenging times?” inquired the questioner.

Alito was reluctant to comment.

“This is a subject I told myself I wasn’t going to talk about today regarding, you know — given all the circumstances,” Alito answered.

After a brief pause, he continued.

“The court right now, we had our conference this morning, we’re doing our work,” he said. “We’re taking new cases, we’re headed toward the end of the term, which is always a frenetic time as we get our opinions out.”

“So that’s where we are,” Alito stated simply.

It was a noted departure from the usual “we may disagree, but we’re all friendly and respectful” answer such a question would normally elicit.

Outside the virtual speech, on the George Mason campus, activists had gathered in force, chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, Alito has got to go! Hey hey, ho ho we must defend Roe!”

Thirty feet away, reported WaPo, a group of five counterprotesters was chanting back: “Abortion is violence! Abortion is oppression!”

Meanwhile, as previously reported in BizPac Review, activists have descended upon the homes of the Supreme Court justices after the pro-abortion activist group Ruth Sent Us published the addresses of six conservative members.

 

The Biden administration has refused to condemn the blatant attempts to intimidate the justices and influence their ultimate decisions, but according to a recent poll by The Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action, the American people are overwhelmingly appalled.

Conducted May 6 to May 8, the poll found that 75.8% of voters felt the actions of the demonstrators were unacceptable, including 66.6% of Democrats, 86.5% of Republicans, and 75.1% of Independents.

Furthermore, 52.3% of voters agreed that Biden’s initial refusal to condemn the protests outside the justices’ residents would encourage violence and unlawfulness.

“These numbers make it clear that the Biden Administration’s refusal — both to forcefully condemn these illegal demonstrations and to enforce laws protecting Justices of the United States Supreme Court — is wildly unpopular with voters,” said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action, in a statement. “Democrats are out of step with the vast majority of Americans, regardless of political party.”

Over 40% of the abortions in this country are performed on black women. Someone tell me why that’s a bad thing?

Conservatives are working against themselves on this issue. Let it go…

I don’t disagree with you. Timing is my issue- ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’ There are two desired outcomes of Tube Cutting boys and girls of certain groups- > Improve the situation of: 60% of Shootings involve 1% of the population.
> Improve the situation of daughters of Single Mothers become the Second Generation Welfare family.
Planned Parenthood could help reduce abortions by getting a list of Single Mothers on Welfare. Provide government-subsidized Tube Cutting for their daughters and sons.
The primary characteristic of the Shooters is they do not know who their father is.
The primary reason of Second Generation Welfare families is the girls don’t learn from the mistakes of their mothers- they do not use contraceptives.

Another instance where Democrats are showing what they are. Rush was right again.

Fortunately for the low IQ protesters, many, many things rhyme with HO! AliTO, GO, ROE! I’m surprised no one has trademarked “ho”! Oh, that reminds me – what does the Kamala think about all this?? Did she make it back from wherever she went??

Since protesting at the personal residence of Federal judges is illegal under both Virginia and Federal law, why aren’t these “insurrectionists” being locked up in a D.C. gulag without due process or bail like the Jan. 6 protestors?

My guess would be because they are DEMOCRATS. Only Republicans are locked up, punished and ridiculed for standing up for their beliefs. Dems do whatever they want and have for years. Clinton, Comey, Clapper, and more who were involved in spying on a sitting President, creating false documents to present to a FISA court, lying to the FBI, and countless investigations over lies, NOTHING happens to them.

The need to impeach this entire administration for blatantly violating and encouraging others to violate the law needs to happen.

No. Even conservative media isn’t ‘wondering’ anymore.

The administration has been bit in the butt so many times I wonder how they have any left.
They have allowed citizens to be out of control.

Only certain citizens are allowed to be out-of-control. Upset parents aren’t, for example.

Well, it’s easy to have a bit of tush left over when that’s all you are. The real question is, how much is left of that deranged, ever more left-leaning party at this point?
