1) Justice Thomas career has finally culminated in his position as the leader of the Conservative Supreme Court. Carrie Severino writes:
People in public life often like to depict themselves as fearless. Few of them live up to the hype. The truly fearless tend not to advertise it, but let their deeds speak for themselves. And they are rare. Justice Clarence Thomas is in that select category.
Thirty years have passed since his confirmation to the Supreme Court, and he has amassed a record as the court’s staunchest defender of constitutional originalism or interpreting the Constitution according to its original meaning. He earned that distinction by his willingness to stand up on constitutional principles even if he had to stand alone.
2) Katie Couric is a disgrace. Jason Whitlock writes:
Katie Couric confessed she’s an enemy of the people.
In her soon-to-be-released memoir, the former “Today Show” host disclosed she edited an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg to “protect” the then-83-year-old Supreme Court Justice from public backlash. During a 2016 interview, Ginsburg made the mistake of sharing her true feelings about national anthem-kneeler Colin Kaepernick.
Ginsburg told Couric that Kaepernick and his allies were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life … which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from.”
…The media are lying to us. You can’t sustain a democracy or promote justice on a foundation of lies. You might feel like the police are randomly killing scores of black men. Your feelings aren’t facts. Your feelings lie.
It feels good to Katie Couric and all the other guilt-ridden white liberals to feed black people an endless supply of lies and half-truths. Watching black people die feels good to them. The lucky ones, like George Floyd, get statues, memorials, and multimillion-dollar payouts to their survivors.
3) Americans are rebelling against the Democrat’s covid dictatorship. Glenn Reynolds writes:
Go almost anywhere with a mask mandate, and you will see some people not wearing masks at all, daring anyone to do anything about it (often, they don’t).
You will also see a lot more with the mask pulled down below their noses, providing the vague suggestion of compliance without actually going along. These people will usually pull the mask up if asked, but then pull it right back down again as soon as the asker leaves the vicinity. (Hey, why take it seriously when our elites have made clear that the mask rules don’t apply to them and their gatherings?)
