Will there be consequences for the classified material Trump kept at Mar-a-Lago? Probably not, but it is still very funny. Better than him actually killing a guy on 5th Avenue and nothing happening.
The Supreme Court dropped some more steaming fascist turds since the last time I did a cartoon about them. Unless the court gets packed, or an [REDACTED] or two happens before the November midterms, I don’t see how our rights can be clawed back within my lifetime without some super-legal actions.
Whining about protesters is all the rage this week among those who don’t want to mention the impending overturning of Roe v. Wade. Claiming these spontaneous, harmless protests are “protoviolence” and beyond the scope of the First Amendment is the first step to normalize the looming crackdowns when the (illegitimate) SCOTUS opinion officially comes down.
I don’t really want Maine to return to Massachusetts, but a lot of states should be consolidated, especially the prairie states which produce nothing more than senators, grain and natural gas.
The repealing of Roe v. Wade was inevitable when Anthony Kennedy mysteriously retired. I’d love for the reason for that, or the identity of Kavanaugh’s debt-absolving benefactors to be leaked, too. Leaving Merrick Garland’s nomination to die on the vine and RBG dying for real were just gravy for the forced-birth freaks.
If this further overreach by Republicans goes without massive protests, the next coup’s going to make Bush v. Gore look like a sound legal opinion.
I didn’t draw or write anything illegal in the redacted panels, by the way. They are “Pray the Court Away,” and “A Vote Makes the Court Go Away!” if any FBI agent is asking.
The omicron wave and a colder than usual March caught me up on a lot of TV. Marvel and Star Wars superfans will probably get mad at me even though I ate up all that garbage. I also read books. Mostly the Dune sequels though. Shut up.
I only watched clips and read articles about the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson. A gross spectacle that I don’t know how anyone managed to watch it all, let alone participate in it like Brown Jackson was forced too.
After the run of Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, there’s no more pretense of the Supreme Court being above the fray. That ended with Bush v. Gore for me.
Hopefully Brown Jackson gets confirmed. Meanwhile, I’m eagerly refreshing Clarence Thomas news.
Mitch McConnell’s Supreme Court gutted Roe v. Wade in Texas and will soon do it in other states. Democrats are still insisting the only thing to be done is to vote. Voters busted their asses to give them a trifecta so they could pack the courts, and codify abortion rights into law RIGHT NOW, but they’d rather have the fundraising boogeyman to run against than do something useful.
I’m not usually an optimist, but the balance of the Supreme Court is just a Clarence coronary and a Kavanaugh DUI fatality away from being restored. Those odds are diminished if Breyer pulls an Anthony Kennedy and sticks around to let a Republican president pay off his kids’ debts for the opportunity to appoint his successor.
Maybe it’s ageist, but the last time hoping an ancient justice clung to life didn’t work out so well. Breyer can do whatever it is Sandra Day O’Connor’s been up to. (Just Googled, she’s still alive at 91.)
