The Supreme Court judge has made THAT pretty clean a few times…..
It seems to be personal ….
In a dissent from the Supreme Court’s order pausing mifepristone restrictions from taking effect, Justice Samuel Alito said there were “legitimate doubts” that the Biden administration would have followed a court decision that went the other way.
“Here, the Government has not dispelled legitimate doubts that it would even obey an unfavorable order in these cases, much less that it would choose to take enforcement actions to which it has strong objections,” Alito, one of the court’s conservatives, wrote….
He suggested that the federal government had not “dispelled legitimate doubts” that it would obey such an order entirely.
Alito, who authored the court’s majority opinion overturning the constitutional right to an abortion last year, ultimately decided to vote against granting the pause….
“Contrary to the impression that may be held by many, that disposition would not express any view on the merits of the question whether the FDA acted lawfully in any of its actions regarding mifepristone,” he continued. “Rather, it would simply refuse to take a step that has not been shown as necessary to avoid the threat of any real harm during the presumably short period at issue.”
Justice Clarence Thomas, another conservative, indicated that he would have denied the administration’s request, but he did not join Alito’s statement….

The truth of the matter is there is significant debate among judicial scholars today as to whether or not we’ve gone off on the wrong path with regard to Supreme Court decisions.
There’s a very significant dispute that’s existed in 5-4 decisions over the past two decades in a court that’s very closely divided on the critical central issues of the day.
And so just to make it clear, I’m puzzled by some of the things you said, and I’m sure you’re going to get a chance to tell me what you meant by some of the things you wrote and said….
