Omar and Schumer need to be at the least censured or if possible expelled from their respective legislative office.
Well, apparently we’re going to go here again.
We’re going to accuse Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh of being “sexual predators” in the midst of a contentious case.
The Supreme Court is currently considering June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, a case involving whether a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital violates the “undue burden” test set forth by the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision.
The case has drawn a lot of attention for a lot of reasons I can only adumbrate in the quickest fashion.
The Louisiana bill is similar to a Texas law the court struck down in a landmark 2016 decision. A lower court decided that the Louisiana law’s burden on women seeking abortions was different than Texas’ legislation.
The composition of the court is also different from when the 2016 case was decided.
In that case, Justice Anthony Kennedy was the swing vote in a 5-3 decision; the case was decided while the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat was vacant.
Kennedy is gone, replaced (contentiously) by Brett Kavanaugh; Scalia was replaced (also contentiously) by Neil Gorsuch.
That could yield a decision that alters the Texas case, or even Planned Parenthood v. Casey, although revisiting these decisions is less likely in a case that deals primarily with whether or not the Louisiana law is substantively different than the one passed in Texas.
However, the mere thought that the high court might uphold an abortion regulation has the left in a state of apoplexy.
If you follow this sort of thing, you probably didn’t miss much of the pro-abortion rally in front of the Supreme Court as the case was being heard. This involved, among other things, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatening Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.
This kind of took attention away from a Twitter rant from Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar in which she said two conservative justices were “accused sexual predators.”
It began with two of the incessant mantras of the left regarding abortion:
And then we went there:
Two accused sexual predators should not be deciding whether or not women have access to healthcare in this country. https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2020/mar/04/supreme-court-abortion-roe-v-wade-trump-live …

In case you’ve forgotten, both Thomas and Kavanaugh were accused of sexual misconduct at convenient times during their Senate confirmation hearings.
