A truly competent and evil bastard lurks in the senate, The Turtle, mastermind of the selection of far right justices including the 3 residing on the worst SC in history, is on the path of changing how law in this country will be conducted this way forward.
The Supreme Court’s draft majority opinion striking down Roe v. Wade couldn’t have happened without Mitch McConnell.

McConnell’s blockade of Merrick Garland, the Obama Supreme Court nominee who’s now attorney general, set the stage for a 6-3 conservative majority where Chief Justice John Roberts is no longer the swing vote on contentious issues such as abortion access.
Read the rest of this excellent Politico piece to see how McConnell made it happen.
Roberts will also pay the price thanks to Citizens United, Greece NY and Hobby Lobby.
