Watch For Susan Collins To Pull Her Susan The Suckered Routine Out Of Her Treadbare Acting Kit
Slate magazine notes that perjurer-sex-criminal member of the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh declared war on Roe v. Wade in his dissent in the Louisiana attempt to ban abortion, John Roberts, probably understanding that overturning Roe would cause a fire storm that could destroy the Republican-fascist stranglehold on power and make radical change on the Court far more popular, voted with the non-fascist four, this time.
On Thursday night, the Supreme Court blocked a stringent Louisiana abortion law by a 5–4 vote, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the liberals to keep the measure on hold. Roberts’ vote is surprising, but not a total shock: The Louisiana statute is a direct violation of the Supreme Court’s 2016 ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, and until the court overturns that decision, the Louisiana law cannot take effect. To Roberts, this precedent matters. To Justice Brett Kavanaugh, it does not. Kavanaugh so disagreed with the majority that he wrote a dissent explaining why the Louisiana law should be allowed to move forward—an opinion that should not be taken as anything less than a declaration of war on Roe v. Wade.
You can read the rest of the piece to get that end of it. I'm going to concentrate on the woman who put Kavanaugh on the Court, Susan Collins who lied through her teeth that she believed he would not vote to ban abortion, something she knew very well he would. She lied through that whole disgusting episode, telling the majority of her own constituents to go to hell as she shored up her Republican support and got money for her campaign out of it. Susan Collins is and always has been a fraud, as I've tirelessly pointed out to people she's gulled - with the help of the Maine and national media which lied on her behalf - she always has been a mainstream Republican which, these days, is hard right. She was always right of even the "moderate" Republicans of Maine of which I don't believe any really exist anymore. Republicans are fascists, I'm not Rachel Maddow, I don't need to pretend that's not the case for network purposes.
Susan Collins is probably hoping that John Roberts saves her from having to face the firestorm that having Roe overturned before he next election will be, though I wouldn't count on that if I were in her position, but, then, I never would be in her position. She should be exposed for the lying fraud she is even as she plays her patented Susan the Suckerd act, as she played with Mitch McConnell and Trump over ACA repair legislation in order to vote for the billionaire bonanza the skank always wanted to vote for.
Susan the Suckerd is just one of her acts, she's got a rather tacky little trunk of routines, her Ritual Dance of Indecision the other major one. The woman is a total fraud and a disgrace, she should be ridiculed and exposed and driven from office, though I am hoping that she is driven out by the voters, I'll take hounding her from running again as a second choice.
