Democrats in Congress have been trying to get Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito to recuse himself from presiding over any cases related to January 6. The reason is because of the flags that Mrs. Alito flies outside their Washington, DC, area home. Because Democrats are completely unscrupulous and will do literally anything to win, they had hoped to discredit Alito and any rulings he might make through this fake controversy involving his wife. Fortunately, Alito isn’t backing down.

The whole controversy started when it was claimed that the Alito household had flown an upside-down flag on January 6, symbolizing distress. Whether that ever happened is open to debate. If it did happen, Alito says that was his wife’s choice since she’s the one who manages the flags that are flown at their house on a day-to-day basis.

Even if Mrs. Alito did fly an upside-down flag on January 6, so what? If New York Judge Juan Merchan’s daughter can rake in $100 million for her business off of her father’s persecution of Donald Trump, then why isn’t Mrs. Alito allowed to express a political opinion? Double standard much, liberals?

The Supreme Court is weighing two major cases on January 6 in the coming weeks, both of which will have a direct impact on the left’s lawfare cases against President Trump. One is over the question of presidential immunity; if Barack Obama had immunity to kill American citizens in drone strikes without a trial, why doesn’t Donald Trump have immunity to ask questions about an election?

The other question before the court is over the validity of whether January 6 protesters can be charged under a statute intended to apply to people shredding documents and evidence in financial crimes on Wall Street—which the DOJ has been doing for the past three years. At any rate, Alito has issued a rare response to the Democrats’ usual attempts to meddle in court business.

He’s told them to go pound sand, which is always the correct response.
