Joe Biden is Running Against the Supreme Court

President Biden promised a return to normal when he ran for his job. That promise has not been kept.

The latest broken promise occurred last night when Biden held a news conference to deliver his reaction to the Supreme Court's ruling on immunity. This move was not normal at all for a president. It was unprecedented. 


 The ruling was 6-3 in favor of limited immunity for a president. Democrats wanted a ruling against any immunity because they fear former President Trump will be re-elected in November. It's crazy but true. 

Biden wanted to tell the country that he dissents. 

The president spoke for four minutes and forty seconds. He did not take questions from the reporters. 

The criticism by Biden and Democrats is that the ruling in Trump v. United States will place no limits on what a president can do while in office. Mostly they are upset that the lawfare lodged against the former president is not working out as they hoped. They were looking for a way to eliminate Biden's opponent by keeping him busy in court and maybe even jailing him.

So, Joe Biden is now running against Trump and the Supreme Court.

"This is a fundamentally new principle, and it's a dangerous precedent because the power of the office will no longer be constrained by the law, even including the Supreme Court of the United States," Biden said.

Biden graduated at the bottom of his class in law school. He pretends he is the smartest person in the room. He is not above deliberately misconstruing the Supreme Court's opinion.

The Supreme Court ruled that the president has substantial immunity from prosecution for official acts committed while in office. But it does not include unofficial acts. Biden and Democrats are making all kinds of wild statements that now a president can go wild, including assassinating political enemies. Nothing was too outlandish for them to fantasize about. 


The Court sent the matter back to a lower court. The justices punted as they did not apply the ruling to whether or not Trump is immune from prosecution for actions related to his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. This will likely be a slow process in the lower court and Trump will not be tied up in court before the election in November. 

Biden's plea to voters is that Trump is unfit to be president.

"The American people must decide if Trump's embrace of violence to preserve his power is acceptable. Perhaps most importantly, the American people must decide if they want to entrust the presidency to Donald Trump once again. Now knowing, he'll be even more emboldened to do whatever he pleases, whenever he wants to do it," Biden said.

If polls are to be believed, voters are already making that decision and they are going for Trump. 

This isn't the first time Biden has slammed the Supreme Court. He just hasn't done it in an official press conference before last night. On the campaign trail, he brags about disregarding the Court's ruling against him on student loan forgiveness. He brags about going around the ruling. 

Chief Justice Roberts wrote that no president is above the law. Democrats are falsely claiming otherwise

“I know I will respect the limits of the presidential powers, as I have for three and a half years,” Mr. Biden said on Monday night. “But any president, including Donald Trump, will now be free to ignore the law.”

Mr. Biden said he agreed with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who wrote “with fear for our democracy, I dissent.” Mr. Biden echoed her language as he concluded his remarks.

“I dissent,” he said. “May God bless you all and may God help preserve our democracy.”


Justice Sotomayor wrote a heinous dissent, in my opinion. Naturally, Biden used it to agree with his dissent. It bordered on the hysterical. She ended, "With fear for our democracy, I dissent."

Sotomayor said that the majority opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, invents "an atextual, ahistorical, and unjustifiable immunity that puts the President above the law."

Their ruling, she went on, makes three moves that she said "completely insulate Presidents from criminal liability." Sotomayor said the court creates absolute immunity for the president's exercise of "core constitutional powers," creates "expansive immunity for all 'official acts,'" and "declares that evidence concerning acts for which the President is immune can play no role in any criminal prosecution against him."

Sotomayor warned that the ruling "will have disastrous consequences for the Presidency and our democracy."

Justice Jackson also made a point to weigh in

In her own written dissent, Jackson wrote that the majority's ruling "breaks new and dangerous ground."

"Departing from the traditional model of individual accountability, the majority has concocted something entirely different: a Presidential accountability model that creates immunity—an exemption from criminal law — applicable only to the most powerful official in our Government," she wrote.

Jackson warned that under the majority's "new Presidential accountability mode," a hypothetical president "who admits to having ordered the assassinations of his political rivals or critics...or one who indisputably instigates an unsuccessful coup...has a fair shot at getting immunity."


The wise Latina and Biden's DEI justice are quite the fearmongering pair. They are a disgrace but this is Biden's America. Justices openly talk about presidents assassinating political rivals or critics. It's a clown show. 

Biden will run on his disappointment that Trump is free to campaign and will not be sent to jail before the election. Democrats have nothing but fear to campaign on. Biden's America is a banana republic.
