there are some posters from the fringes of the left that do not like the Supreme Court. Well, they are judges at the end of the day, not dogmatic like the propaganda which a business like MSNBC puts out. Here it is: Supreme Court denies Trump request to withhold tax returns. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/11/22/supreme-court-trump-taxes/
Look at this, the "establishment" media is buzzing my phone. Trump Asks Supreme Court to Block the House From Obtaining His Tax Returns I could not resist but to pass this important message that the leader of some is hiding his taxes. A theory that is going around is that maybe he did not donate to charity? https://www.nytimes.com/2022/10/31/us/politics/trump-tax-returns-supreme-court.html
Aside from the ideological war, the question is, who might have leaked this draft opinion? Alito: Leaked draft opinion endangered lives of justices Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito said that the unauthorized disclosure of a draft landmark Supreme Court majority opinion on abortion put some justices at risk of assassination. Speaking at a Heritage Foundation event, Alito said the release of his draft opinion made the justices presumed to be in the majority “targets for assassination because it gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us.” The draft from Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was published by POLITICO on May 2. “It was a grave betrayal of trust by somebody,” Alito said.

USA Sinks into Authoritarinism
ReeferMadness posted a topic in US Federal PoliticsWhen a supreme court nominee runs into problems with serious allegations of sexual predation, the president orders a sham investigation; a move right out of the playbook of Validimir Putin. As millions of the president's useful idiots (some of whom post right here on MLW!) concoct ridiculous rationalizations, the national law enforcement agency meekly follows the president's orders without a peep. Despite the fact that the nominee has obviously been lying to congress for weeks, he is confirmed anyway. What has happened this week is a stride towards a descent into authoritarianism, American style. With a supreme court justice installed in such a disgraceful and corrupt fashion, what intelligent, thinking person could believe that when he needs to rule on Trump's corruption, he will render and impartial vote towards the verdict? Unlike Russia, we are unlikely to see President Trump become president for life (although the way Trump lives and eats, that's unlikely to be long anyway). The USA is now an oligarchy and Trump is himself the ultimate useful idiot, a reality TV personality playing the role of president. Trump, a sad caricature completely lacking a moral compass who bumbles from issue to issue gathering headlines, makes the billionaires richer with huge tax cuts while simultaneously driving up military spending. The USA is a jet and he's pointed the nose straight down and pushed the throttle to the max. When he leaves or dies, there will be other useful idiots who come along right behind him.
