Nancy Pelosi stuns the Supreme Court with an unprecedented attack

The aging former House Speaker is trying to regain some of her power. And there’s no low she won’t stoop to.

Now she has stunned the Supreme Court with an unprecedented attack.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) assailed the legitimacy of the United States Supreme Court this week, alleging in an interview that the court has “gone rogue” because she disagrees with its decisions.

The former Speaker of the House made the statements during a Monday night interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, when asked if she trusted the court.

“No, I think they have gone rogue. It’s most unfortunate,” she claimed.

“But it’s unfortunate further to see what the other justices … what happened to the chief justice? Did he go weak or did he go rogue? I don’t know. And that’s the same thing with these members of Congress, if I can take it back to that, because, as tragic as that night was — and they were coming after me to put a bullet in my head. They were going to hang the — have a gallows for the vice president of the United States.”

Boy, do Democrats like to play up January 6th as if it was Beer Hall Putsch of World War II.

“So, no, I don’t have confidence in the Supreme Court,” she later added.

“I think that some of the decisions they have — see, I respect their point of view. If they have a point of view about a woman’s right to choose, okay, but that’s not what they’re there to do, to advocate for a point of view. Run for Congress.”

She argued that the justices voted “their opinion on policy” rather than “the oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the United States.”

“I want us to get back to a place where the three branches of government, as our Founders initiated, are respected across the board,” she claimed.

“But I don’t have a lot of confidence in this court, unfortunately. I say that with a heavy heart.”

The problem with her argument is that she wants the Supreme Court to take away legislators’ ability to legislate.

She says the Court took away “a women’s right to choose.”

But the Court did no such thing. Roe v. Wade invalidated restrictions on abortion by the duly elected officials of different states.

It was Roe that was an opinion of the Court that fabricated a specious legal theory based on no evidence.

While she laments that the Court ruled against enshrining her political principles, it actually just gave states the “right to choose” their own laws on abortion.

How is that an imposition?
