'We were a family': Clarence Thomas bemoans lost trust at the Supreme Court

By Bob Brigham
Published May 13, 2022

Controversial Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas complained that a draft decision overturning the right to abortion was leaked

Thomas made his remarks at the Old Parkland Conference, where he was interviewed by torture memo author John Yoo, Politico reported.

“When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I’m in, it changes the institution fundamentally. You begin to look over your shoulder,” Thomas said. “It’s kind of like infidelity that you can explain it, but you can’t undo it.”

You voted to attack and eviscerate the Voting Rights Act....

You voted to let unfettered money buy political power unchallenged the breeds corruption...

And then there is your wife who thinks my vote should be thrown out.....and supports sedition / insurrections.....

Cry me a river. You've been instrumental in the destruction of our nation as we knew it. He's just having a sad because the spotlight is on him now for his choices. Well, suck it up buttercup. Choices have consequences. Deal. Just like all the rest of us have had to deal with your bad choices.

Wish I could rec this a thousand times!!! We sure don't keep up with the times, do we? Not enough representatives to represent the people, and not enough SCOTUS judges to represent the court circuits. Did we just stop trying to keep up with the times when greed took over in the late 70's?

17. Ignorance at the Top

One of the symptoms of intellectual exhaustion is when you don’t know what you don’t know.

A Supreme Court justice is supposed to be the smartest person on the law in the United States, top of the class. Statements like this accidentally expose the obvious lack—Thomas complains to the mass media about the lack of his court’s privacy.

You can’t make this shit up.

28. That's the republican platform...

...we're victims. Never mind that we are bullying the entire country; we're the real victims, waaaaahhhhh.




Gosh, when obviously unqualified political hacks - one of them who LIKES BEER, YOU KNOW - join your ranks, what did you expect? When the country wakes up and sees what you're doing - shattering the very precedents you vowed to uphold - they don't like it. When justices LIE in order to be seated on a bench which is supposedly the highest ethical standard in the land, PEOPLE GET ANGRY. When you refuse to recuse from political cases in which there is a clear conflict of interest, PEOPLE NOTICE.

Go have a stroke, you motherfucker.

One man's quest to lower the bar just a little lower.

He's been there so long he actually thinks it's about him.

By trying to overturn the will of over 70% of the country, and thinking they could get away with it unscathed through a midnight undercover vote.

34. Nice deflection there, Clarence.

I don't, for a minute, believe this is anything other than a deflection from his wife's (or someone of their ilk's) involvement in the leak. It's just more screaming about the leak, rather than what was in it. Y'all made your bed, now shut the fuck up and lie in it.

39. You had the chance to nip that in the bud in 1989, Clarence

You've also had plenty of time to repair the damage since then, by recusing yourself to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest, or resigning outright because that would have resulted in you pretty much being absent all the time.

Don't complain about reaping shit when that's what you sewed.
