I’ve read many historical novels about kings, queens, majesty, and power. I’ve seen the world through the eyes of Queen Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti. I’ve watched the kingdoms of Egypt and Rome fall. Through the weeping willows of my eyes, I have witnessed the historical fire that demolished the great Library of Alexandria.

In the here and now, one can also witness — fake kings. Fake monarchs. Six of them. They move with the arrogance of power-hungry mad people. They wear the flowing robes of Justice, but in reality, those robes do not seek Justice but pure, unfettered power.

My friends, tomorrow we have a certain decision likely to come. This decision is due around 10:00 AM. It is whether Donald Trump gets his immunity. This writer thinks he will not. Most believe this bridge is too far, even for this most extreme maniacal court.

But we will just have to see. No matter what the decision is, one thing is for sure: When we win in November, one of the reasons why we will win is a court gone mad with artificial power. They have become legends in their brains. They are cold, immovable statues, and THAT does not change no matter what ruling they hand down.

Nobody is immortal in power. Nor is this most extreme court. When we win, we perhaps will be able to codify Roe. We can look at term limits or at adding Justices. Perhaps we can haul in Clarence Thomas s and have hearings. Anything is possible if we win,

The extreme court—six of them—sees itself as all-powerful. They are flush with the desire to wield power. They want to steal the palace jewels and appoint themselves as our kings, our monarchs, and our leaders.

Hubris. Millions of stories have been told about hubris. This writer has most certainly told some of them. But ask yourself, in these stories, how often do the ones who wear hubris actually WIN?

I’d say that piddling amount is — less than — zero? Hubris comes and goes, but it ALWAYS , at SOME point, brings down the ones who mistakenly indulge in it, thinking they are untouchable. That’s precisely what will happen here WHEN we win.
