2. He can be in court forever.

Go after Trump and the Thomases. Dozens of spotlights. Expose their daily life, their friends, their dark money people.

3. Certainly not if you are an ordinary person.

That privilege is only for the elite.

8. +1. They can order anything without a reason


In the near future they won't even bother to write an opinion - because they know their opinion is laughable bullshit

9. Or the reason is ludicrous nonsense from the 17th century.

Because who can challenge them?
No one.

Oh I think they will keep cranking out nonsense with impunity.

13. Yup

People donít seem to realize that SCOTUS interprets the constitution. So you can say ďwell X can never happen because the constitution says YĒ.

The constitution says whatever SCOTUS says it says. If they say nothing in the constitution entitled you to a TV and they should all be destroyed, then all the TVs get destroyed.

7. Probably not.

The executive has ignored SCOTUS in the past. Trump is more likely to get a pardon from the next Republican President.

10. Who knows?

They've thrown out precedent, reason, law, and logic in the past two weeks so they could do anything.

11. The Supreme Court cannot arbitrarily overturn a convictIOn

The appeals process for a criminal conviction isnít a dispute of the evidence, itís a review of the process of the trial and the Judgeís rulings.

And for those who are going to argue that the Court can do whatever it wants today, consider that they were unwilling to uphold any of Trumpís election lawsuits.

12. It all depends if domestic oligarchs

still find Trump useful. 6 members of the SC are beholden to domestic oligarchs.
