Terror, Supreme Court Justices, and the Existential Threat

Justice Thomas Uses GOF Brief to “Stump” Obama Lawyers

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- The Supreme Court is the major bulwark against the destruction of the Second Amendment at the federal level. The independence of the Court is essential to protect the Second Amendment at the Court.

On The Russ Clark Show, a local radio show in Yuma Arizona, an investment guru guest, known only as “Edward”, made a prediction: The Supreme Court justices would not accept the Texas v. Pennsylvania lawsuit contesting the legality of the elections in four states.

The show is local, but is regularly listened to by members of Congress (over the Internet). Congressmen and members of the Trump campaign have been regular guests.

Edward’s argument was: Supreme Court Justices would not rule to enforce the Constitution, because they fear their homes would be burned.

In plain language, he believed political terror had already supplanted the rule of law in the United States. Edward predicted two run-off elections in Georgia will result in two Democrats being elected.

His argument: the machine in Georgia was successful in electing candidate Biden. Why wouldn’t they duplicate the process for the two Senators?

Edward is not mentally challenged. He has a brilliant mind. He is said, by my sources, to be managing assets in the billions. He has wisely kept a low profile. His judgment has been excellent. It is how he has made his wealth, starting from middle-class roots.

I disagree with his analysis.

If we are already in an era of political terror, where Supreme Court justices rule because they fear their houses being burned, his results do not follow. It is a non-sequitur.

If we are already in a regime of political terror, safety is not obtained by placating the terrorists, those who would burn down your house, because you disagree with them.

Placating terrorists has been shown, over and over, to be a bad strategy.

The terrorists have marked 5 or 6 members of the Supreme Court as enemies of the people.

Those justices are: Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Barrett, and, less likely, Chief Justice John Roberts.

The first five of those justices have been subject to death threats for following the Constitution. They have been characterized by the Left as being evil people, on national television, by national leaders on the Left.

The groups who made those threats are the same groups who would credibly threaten to burn the justices’ houses. They are *not* going to be placated by candidate Biden taking power.

They will be emboldened.

The five justices named are not stupid. If they fear their houses being burned, they know the threat will not go away if they give the people making the threats more power.

They know any assurance of safety, from the Left, is always conditional and subject to withdrawal at any time.

When you acquiesce to extortion, you invite more extortion. When you acquiesce to physical threats, you invite greater physical threats.

The physical power which now protects Supreme Court Justices will be diminished if they empower the machine which threatens them. It seems unlikely, by feeding the crowd of political zombies, they will be the last eaten.

This is not conjecture. This often happens in similar historical situations. Once the Supreme Court is compromised by physical threats, the Supreme Court no longer has independence or power.

Those making threats are ideological extremists, political zombies, convinced of the rightness of their cause, the evil of their opponents, and the justification of any means necessary.

It is what happened in the French revolution, in Bolshevik Russia, in Nazi Germany, in China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Japan before WWII, many South American countries after breeches in the rule of law, and Mexico, as the rule of law is lost, and the rule of force commenced.

The difference is, at present, the Supreme Court can preserve and extend its power by enforcing the Constitution. It can make its independence and physical security greater, by supporting the organization which has supported that independence.

The organization which has demonstrated support for the independence of the Court and support for the rule of law, is the current administration of Donald Trump. The Democrat party and the Left have been stalwart in their attempt to undercut the independence of the Supreme Court, to make it subservient to the political Left.

President Trump’s administration has stood up to Antifa and BLM far more than a Joe Biden or Kamala Harris administration would desire or dare.

It is not Republican mayors or governors who stood by and cheered on the destruction of Democrat cities. It was Democrats.

The five justices most at risk have read Thomas Paine’s famous speech. In it, he offers an existential choice: Fight or be slaves.

His logic is famous: When will we be stronger?

Not fighting (in this case, not upholding the Constitution) leads to diminishing strength in a Biden administration, likely with a packed court, with threats from Biden allies who he or Kamala Harris would be unwilling to oppose.

Fighting by upholding the Constitution allows the possibility of growing stronger.

There is the possibility of another appointment of an originalist justice by President Trump.

There is a greater chance of reluctance by the Left to cancel the Constitution when bad consequences (for the Left) result from a bold attempt to do so. (The present election scandal)

The greater threat is not justices lacking the courage to stand up to a physical threat.

It is normalcy bias in denying the existence of a threat at all.

It is the insistence by the Left/Media/Tech Oligarchs, that all is normal. If you do as we (the left) say, nothing will happen. If you rock the boat, it will upset “normal” and rocking the boat (except in a way that advances the left) is bad.

Supreme Court justices receive death threats with some regularity. They are used to it. Under the rule of law, those threats are investigated, and sometimes, prosecuted.

Under a regime that has shown no regard for the rule of law, only threats the administration disagrees with will be investigated.

Hillary was never prosecuted. Hillary was clearly guilty.

General Flynn was prosecuted. General Flynn was clearly innocent.

Under a Biden administration, with a neutered Supreme Court, the threat becomes multiplied a thousand-fold.

Does anyone remember a group of senators actually THREATENED the scotus? Maybe, they took it seriously. I did. There was a day when things like that would get you kicked out of congress and thrown into prison. Why didn’t that happen this time? There more corruption than reported, I think. What won’t they do to destroy America, the American dream and the American citizen? I wish I was wrong but the government, both federal and state, is full of tyrants. Jefferson said something about a tree that has to be refreshed from time to time. I think we are at… Read more »

I absolutely would stand watch for Mr. Justice Thomas. I know for a fact that he has been concerned about the MIA POW issue for many years.

Say, when do we get a posse and raid Suriss’s house?

Remember:
1.Government can make any Law they want, even if it is unconstitutional.
2.It will be the Law until challenged in Court and overturned.
3.You may get lucky and get an injunction on enforcement until a final ruling.

Mr. Flynn . . . You are assuming that a person would follow a legal course of action in a matter. Fact is, the Communist Democraps have lied, cheated, and stolen all along. I would not be inclined to follow legal procedures to fight them!

A lot of the lawsuits filed by trump or trump supporters are being tossed not because they do not have merit, but because they are not being filed properly.
Election rules and laws are very specific, if fighting them one needs people experienced in election laws.
Once they get them and file properly they will go to court and get there time.
Let’s hope they get there act together quickly.

And that the electoral college sees what’s going on and acts accordingly.

Freedom and liberty are worth fighting for. Fix an election and find out what is in store.

They already have fixed the election, the courts will do nothing. And more important, Americans will not pick up their weapons and start shooting.

A very good rendering. However as a simple man, I must have
missed the connection to the headline, that mentioned Justice Thomas.

This article is correct. Our supreme court is a bunch of pussies and they stopped the Texas lawsuit by making a determination without even an investigation. I guess the left won because the court is afraid that if President Trump wins there will be riots and a civil war and people trying to kill them but if liedn wins the republicans wont do shit and it will be business as usual.

HUH!!!!!!

Evil is always ultimately violent. To ignore that fact is death. The socialist, communist progressive demoncrapic party has shown everyone in the last four years alone what they are about; the enslavement of the American citizen by any means necessary. They support, fund, equip and protect several terrorist organizations. Terrorist organizations like blm, antifa and others who would burn, loot, rape and murder in the quest of the communist party ideals. That is STATE SPONCERED TERRORISM and the U.S.A.has and does persicute and prosicute this in several nations around the world. Everyone, EVERYONE is in the struggle for freedom and… Read more »

Why wasn’t the Republican administration more aggressive at enforcing federal laws/regulations against violent BLM/Antifa rioters?

Illegal immigration was an easy fix: End birthright citizenship Enforce visas Implement graduating penalties for companies employing illegal aliens Eliminate benefits (other than immediate, life-threatening medical care) for illegal aliens Create a guest-worker program requiring employers to post a bond for anyone who doesn’t show up to go back on time – if they don’t show up, the bond is forfeited The above could have been done in 2017 when Republicans had the House, Senate, and Presidency. Want to “build a wall?” Ok, fine, but that’s not the issue. It’ a great campaign slogan though. Manufacturing jobs went overseas because… Read more »

I am sure each judge understands that some of their rulings will piss off the public. The problem is, that the judges on the right know the people on the left are violent and their being cautious is justified. I’m sure they carry if they are not guarded and I would carry anyway. The judges on the left don’t give a shit because they know that the republicans stand for the law and believe in God and follow his law too so they are protected twice. Once by God’s law and the people who follow it and another by their… Read more »

Our supreme court just shit all over us. This whole thing sucks and my opinion of America is forever changed if the situation is not rectified. We are headed for hell and it is called a socialist government that will evolve into a communist government. For the first time I am glad that I am old and wont be around to long but right now I am feeling like this bullshit is going to give me a heart attack.

F u supreme court. Grow some balls.
