Pelosi Encouraging Public to Force SCOTUS to Change Leaked Opinion – Opinion

I’m still waiting for any of the prominent Democratic leaders to condemn the pro-abortionists who are targeting churches or Supreme Court justices. We’ve reported on the despicable actions and vandalism at churches, the firebombing of an pro-life organization, as well as the effort to target the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts.

Let’s talk about who’s upending norms here. We’re not just talking about random people rioting; we’re talking about Democratic leaders encouraging intimidation and influencing the justices to change their vote. Pelosi encourages violation of the 18 U.S.C. Section 1507.

“We have to have a clarity of what this draft decision means so that the final decision doesn’t go that far,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Friday. “Lincoln said, ‘Public sentiment is everything. You can achieve almost everything with it. Without it, nothing.’ And women just have to weigh in. I don’t think there’s a good outcome here, but I think there’s a better outcome than what we have seen in the first draft.”

Pelosi also made similar comments on Sunday. Pelosi was reacting to California’s criticism. Gavin Newsom that the Democrats hadn’t been fighting enough on the issue. Pelosi was furious, claiming that the Democrats had not fought enough on this issue. “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked if it was a mistake not to push harder.

Pelosi responded that “the focus we have right now is an urgent one in order to try to improve” the Supreme Court’s forthcoming decision. She said she thought talking about how they hadn’t moved legislatively to codify Roe earlier was a “waste of time.” In other words, forget about the fact that they never tried to codify it; they thought they could just sit on the passage of Roe, even knowing that there were a lot of constitutional issues with the decision.

Is this really an effort to affect the judgment of the justices’? That’s exactly what this is. And it’s not just a random protester; it’s the House Speaker, one of the main leaders of the Democratic party. This is intimidation and calling for more intimidation — implicit in what she is saying.

Talk about an ‘insurrection.’ Remember how we’re supposed to accept the results of elections (except of course when Democrats lose). We’re now throwing the norm of not talking about judicial decisions while they are still being considered under the bus, and also doing away with “the Court has spoken and we must accept it.”

There’s also a greater point — we’re all supposed to understand that the Court isn’t supposed to be subject to politics or what people think, it’s supposed to be purely based on the Constitution and the law. But Pelosi is explicitly saying she doesn’t give a darn about that, and quoting Abraham Lincoln of all people to support her case. I’m fairly certain that Lincoln would have understood the basic constitutional concept of not trying to undermine the independence of the Court.
