Whenever conservatives need a strong voice on the bench Clarence Thomas has been there. He just finished a hat trick on guns, abortion, and the EPA. There’s more coming up. The man is on fire and he’s changing America for the better.
Fox: “As Justice Clarence Thomas faces attacks from liberals — including a recent petition to have him removed from George Washington University’s faculty — the justice is more influential than ever, experts on the justice tell Fox News.”

“The left has been after Clarence Thomas since December of 1980, really — just as he was about to join the Reagan administration. And they hate him,” Mark Paoletta told press. Paoletta was with the Bush the Elder administration during Thomas’ confirmation and helped recruit Thomas for the slot.
“They’ve tried to destroy him. They’ve tried to marginalize him,” Paoletta said. “And 30 years later, he’s not just standing strong. His influence is at its zenith.”
On overturning Roe, “He didn’t write it, but the court was heavily influenced by Justice Thomas, in my opinion, the current sort of majority, by the courage he has shown in his jurisprudence,” Paoletta said. “Justice Thomas has been writing about overturning Roe for 30 years.”
Leftist students at GW in DC tried to get Thomas fired from teaching a class. But the school refused to drop Thomas, which Paoletta said is “one of the most popular courses at GW. I mean, there’s a waiting list to get in.”
“This term is showing the massive influence of Justice Thomas …,” Paoletta said. “It’s all coming to fruition with the court aligning with him this term.”
Liberals are mad and disagree. “This term has put to bed any question about whether the Republican supermajority will exercise even a modicum of restraint in implementing its radical agenda,” Brian Fallon, the executive director of the left wing group Demand Justice, said. “In just a single term, they have decimated the country’s approach to abortion rights, climate change, gun violence prevention, tribal sovereignty and a host of other important issues.”
“The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States on overruling not only Roe v. Wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy,” Joe Biden said Thursday.
A former Thomas clerk disagrees with Fallon, “On so many topics, he used to be regularly a lone dissenter or joined only by Justice Scalia, but now he is the leader of a majority of justices who share his commitment to originalism and the rule of law,” Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino told media.
“This term, in the Bruen case, he wrote the majority opinion clarifying the Second Amendment,” Severino added. “Last term, the court finally recognized that the First Amendment protects a right to anonymous speech, something that Thomas had previously been a lone voice in advocating.”
