New Yorker: In December, Chief Justice John Roberts released his year-end report on the federal judiciary. According to a recent Gallup poll, the Supreme Court has its lowest public-approval rating in history—in part because it is viewed as being overly politicized.

President Joe Biden recently established a bipartisan commission to consider reforms to the Court, and members of Congress have introduced legislation that would require Justices to adhere to the same types of ethics standards as other judges. Roberts’s report, however, defiantly warned everyone to back off.

“The Judiciary’s power to manage its internal affairs insulates courts from inappropriate political influence,” he wrote. His statement followed a series of defensive speeches from members of the Court’s conservative wing, which now holds a super-majority of 6–3. Last fall, Justice Clarence Thomas, in an address at Notre Dame, accused the media of spreading the false notion that the Justices are merely politicians in robes.

Such criticism, he said, “makes it sound as though you are just always going right to your personal preference,” adding, “They think you become like a politician!”

The claim that the Justices’ opinions are politically neutral is becoming increasingly hard to accept, especially from Thomas, whose wife, Virginia (Ginni) Thomas, is a vocal right-wing activist. She has declared that America is in existential danger because of the “deep state” and the “fascist left,” which includes “transsexual fascists.” Thomas, a lawyer who runs a small political-lobbying firm, Liberty Consulting, has become a prominent member of various hard-line groups.

  1. Anyone who has the courage today to condemn “transsexual fascists” has my support. But I think it more accurate to say “transsexual communists.” In fact Fascism is given a bad rap, when it is sometimes necessary to neutralize communists and other enemies of God and of the human race, as Mike King at The Real History Channel points out.

    • Anyone with the opinion stated above must as its #1 priority target the Catholic church.

      And its not even close to number 2.

      Being gay, or being trans, is not the issue, it is the political advantage used by those with other agendas, of these people. Mostly people that have been ostracized by society, will cling to any group that will have them, and generally do not know why that group is doing so. Religion protecting sexual diversity, is not computing, but it is gaining money and influence. They are hurting for followers and cover for their hiring practices that produced a global sex abuse travesty beyond the scale of anything previously experienced by humanity. Look, we are not pedophiles, we are gay !!!! That is the advantage for the church politically,.

    • The only altruistic position is to never noticed or cared about other peoples sexual preferences in the first place. Everything else has agenda and is once again furthering the punishment upon people who do not choose how they are born.
      There’s 8 billion people here. Why is any group being predated upon ?

  2. “In 1801, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase was impeached, after then-U.S. President Thomas Jefferson accused him of bias in his decisions. The House voted to impeach, but the Senate voted to acquit.”

    Need simple majority in the house and 2/3 of the senate to impeach Thomas. Clearly it is warranted, and clearly there is one set of rules for the people and another for the leeches. The civil war they claim they want, is not the one they would get.
