Dems Issue Lockstep Talking Points After SCOTUS Leak

No sooner had the egregious insurrectionist leak from SCOTUS happened, the Dems went public with their talking points. Chuck and Nancy led the way.

“If the report is accurate, the Supreme Court is poised to inflict the greatest restriction of rights in the past fifty years – not just on women but on all Americans.

“The Republican-appointed Justices’ reported votes to overturn Roe v. Wade would go down as an abomination, one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history.

“Several of these conservative Justices, who are in no way accountable to the American people, have lied to the U.S. Senate, ripped up the Constitution and defiled both precedent and the Supreme Court’s reputation – all at the expense of tens of millions of women who could soon be stripped of their bodily autonomy and the constitutional rights they’ve relied on for half a century.

“The party of Lincoln and Eisenhower has now completely devolved into the party of Trump. Every Republican Senator who supported Senator McConnell and voted for Trump Justices pretending that this day would never come will now have to explain themselves to the American people.”

Let me just stop right there. As Shelby wrote here, this leak is unprecedented. It is wrong on EVERY SINGLE LEVEL. This leak has weaponized the court and this happened because insurrectionists want to intimidate the court into keeping a legal precedent in place. Yes, you read that correctly, Roe V Wade is a legal precedent. It is not and never has been law.

Furthermore, this was a DRAFT opinion. Justices typically meet once a week to discuss cases and hold a vote, then a majority draft opinion is written and passed around for discussion. This draft took place on February 10th. How many iterations have there been since then? Who knows. Chief Justice Roberts has confirmed the draft and ordered an investigation.

Yet the Dems received their talking points and are running down the road full speed ahead. 

Washington State’s Jay Inslee is insisting that the state will remain pro-choice even if the legal precedent is overturned. According to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, this is a “dark day in America.” Kathy Hochul of New York has the sads as her granddaughter might have her choice yanked away from her. 

And, here in Colorado – Polis speaks. 

Notice something about all these talking points? The Dems are insisting that states rights will take precedent. Yet at the same time they are whining that this SCOTUS draft will take away women’s right to an abortion. Except that the draft EXPLICITLY outlines that the power to legalize or restrict abortion must to go BACK to the states instead being adjudicated on the federal level!

This is not spontaneous folks. This was planned. I and many others thought as much last night. In fact, I’d be willing to bet this has been planned since the Kavanaugh hearings. Remember what Chuck Schumer said on the Capitol steps?

In his hearing, Kavanaugh said he worried about what the partisan attempts to destroy his reputation with horrific and unsubstantiated allegations would mean for the country. Schumer, by contrast, called out Justices Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch by name and said that if they didn’t achieve his preferred pro-abortion outcome in an upcoming ruling, “you will pay the price” and “you won’t know what hit you.”

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

That attack was so despicable that Chief Justice John Roberts issued a statement. 

Again, I can only conclude that the SCOTUS leak was planned. Dems are on record from the federal to the local level for wanting abortion on demand, no matter when, which includes after the child is born. California allows that, and Ralph Northam, former VA governor, advocated for that atrocity. 

Here’s a final point to this. While the Dems castigate and weaponize the court, this is a reaction from one very disturbed individual. 

The Dems and rabid leftists are cheering the weaponization of our judicial system. They are wrong to do so. This move, applauded by the left encourages or hopes to force courts to act according to their narrative instead of acting in accordance with the law and our Constitution. Justice Alito is very correct in this paragraph of the draft opinion. 

“We cannot allow our decisions to be affected by any extraneous influences such as concern about the public’s reaction to our work,” Alito writes. “We do not pretend to know how our political system or society will respond to today’s decision overruling Roe and Casey. And even if we could foresee what will happen, we would have no authority to let that knowledge influence our decision.”

While the Dems and left continue their lockstep march of talking points and push to burn it all down, every single judge from the federal to local level should be on notice. Do NOT let your decisions be influenced by outside narratives of any kind. Ever.

    If the reporter was part of a staged insurrection, can he be apprehended and forced to divulge his source? I completely concur that this was a planned event from a ways off.

    • Boobah says:

      It sounds like you’re asking if the Politico reporter has any special, legal protections against revealing sources; and the answer is, no, they don’t.

      The ‘press’ in ‘freedom of the press’ is the printing press, and by extension any bit of technology distributing one’s expression. It doesn’t codify a protected group.

      Which doesn’t mean the reporter actually knows, of course.

      Side note: just because the event was planned doesn’t mean they expected to use the plan this soon; it was widely believed, even before arguments, that the Supreme Court would strike down Roe, so it could be that they’ve just activated the plans prepared for the actual ruling scheduled for next month.

  • Lloyd says:

    Definitely a planned event…designed to SCARE the people into shoring up the sinking Democratic party and garner votes for them. Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, & co. are slime, indeed.

  • KeithK says:

    I don’t think the lockstep talking points necessarily imply pre-planning. Ever since Dobbs was argued last year there’s been significant expectation that Roe might be over-ruled. The Dems have had months to craft a messaging strategy in response. The leak may have just caused an early roll out.

  • Audrey says:

    Figures that Hochul would be an ardent abortion supporter. For a lot of avowedly Christian Dems, their belief is for show purposes only (eg, Pelosi). Hochul’s bizarre God and COVID speech was complete cringe but the fact that not a single Dem drew attention to it proves they knew her words had no connection to anything. I guess her God is a-ok with taking life as long as it’s just terribly inconvenient.

  • DEEBEE says:

    Should not be long before the suggestion that the real target is “Brown…” or even “obergefell” and the kitchen sink

  • rbj1 says:

    “CO remains a state where freedom is respected and where any person has the ability to live, ”

    Polis suffers from a lack of self-awareness.

  • […] we’ve seen events unfold since the draft opinion was leaked and then the actual Dobbs ruling was released, it’s been instructive to watch the gaslighting […]
