Justice Samuel Alito has a simple message for any liberals who think that he needs to recuse himself from an upcoming Supreme Court case:
Go kick rocks.
Okay, so maybe those weren't his exact words, but that's almost exactly what he meant.
Liberals have been pressuring Alito to recuse himself from a particular case for some time now.
The problem is that there is no good reason for him to do so. Liberals simply want one fewer conservative on the bench to influence the case.
Alito isn't going to stand for it.
He spoke his mind when responding to all of the people who were ordering him to take a step back during this case:
This argument is unsound. There is no valid reason for my recusal in this case.
There you have it.
Still, Democrats continue to be highly critical of Alito, Clarence Thomas, and any other justice they feel may not be marching in lockstep with the liberal agenda.
Alito recently came out with the brutal truth and told liberals that they aren't allowed to exclude certain judges from cases just because liberals in Congress don't like the way the judge is likely to rule.
"I know this is a controversial view, but I’m willing to say it. No provision in the Constitution gives them the authority to regulate the Supreme Court — period," Alito asserted.
This enrages Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois.
"Justice Alito, of the originalist school of thinking that empty seats on an airplane don’t count as gifts, surprises no one by sitting on a case involving a lawyer who honored him with a puff piece in the Wall Street Journal. Why do these Justices continue to take a wrecking ball to the reputation of the highest court in the land?" Durbin said.
"The Court is in a crisis of its own making, and Justice Alito and the rest of the Court should be doing everything in their power to regain public trust, not the opposite. This episode is further proof that Chief Justice Robert’s failure to act remains untenable, and Congress needs to pass the SCERT Act to create an enforceable code of conduct. Supreme Court Justices should be held to the highest ethical standards, not the lowest," he added.
