It’s no secret that Democrats are looking for new ways to undermine the Supreme Court. Democrats have long tried to “pack” the court, to erase Trump’s conservative majority. That is unlikely to happen, with senators like Joe Manchin around. So, the radical left is trying to find another way to nullify the strong, conservative lean of the highest court in the land.
It’s ironic since the court exists to check the power of Democrats in Congress. Yet these liberals are throwing the Constitution out the window, to ensure their extremist agenda under Joe Biden goes off without a hitch. And one leftist group is proposing a move that could shut out top justices.
A proposal by outside interest groups for the Supreme Court to adopt a new “model” ethics code could thrust Justice Clarence Thomas and his spouse, Ginni, further into the political limelight.
The proposed guidelines from so-called independent government watchdogs Project on Government Oversight and Lawyers Defending American Democracy would put in place “more stringent guidelines for recusal.” The guidelines would be so strict that if they were in effect last year, it may have prevented the high court’s eldest Republican-appointed justice, Thomas, from participating in a case involving the release of Trump administration records to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, according to a recent NPR report.
The left would love nothing more than to further politicize our court system. An “independent government watchdog” group called ” Project on Government Oversight and Lawyers Defending American Democracy proposed a new, idiotic rule. They want the highest court in the land to adopt a rule that would force justices to recuse themselves on any cases based on the conduct of their spouses or “close family members.”
How convenient. And idiotic. But what else would you expect from a group with such an idiotic name? (Hey guys! Brevity is the soul of wit.)
It seems this rule is simply a means of preventing Justice Thomas from engaging in crucial cases. They are targeting him specifically, it seems, because his wife is an outspoken Republican and supporter of the party. There could be many cases that radical leftists would demand Thomas’s recusal, simply because his wife Ginni has said something about a related issue.
This “recommendation” has little to do with the justices’ ability to objectively rule on a case. This radical group is accusing justices of being unable to impartial rule, because of their spouses. Funny how Democrats never worry about that, when so many of their spouses work in private-sector companies regulated by Congress.
The only silver lining is that such a rule would only go into effect if accepted by the Supreme Court. And it is unlikely the court will embrace a rule from some independent group.
- A “watchdog” group is pushing a rule that would recuse Supreme Court justices.
- The rule would demand justices recuse from cases based on the actions of their spouses.
- The group is targeting conservative Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife.
