 John Oliver offering Clarence Thomas $1M a year to resign from Supreme Court
by Dominick Mastrangelo - 02/19/24 11:19 AM ET

Comedian and “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver is urging Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign, offering him $1 million per year to do so.

Oliver railed against the conservative justice during the 11th season premiere of his weekly show Sunday, saying Thomas had made the lives of Americans “demonstrably worse” and promising him a brand new luxury recreational vehicle if he agrees to step down from the high court.

“Lot on your plate right now. From stripping away women’s rights to hearing Jan. 6 cases, you definitely shouldn’t be hearing two potentially helping rollback decades of federal regulations,” he said.

“So that’s the offer. $1 million a year, Clarence. And a brand new condo on wheels. And all you have to do in return is sign the contract and get the f‑‑‑ off the Supreme Court,” Oliver added. “Talk it over with your totally best friend in the whole world. Because the clock starts now. Thirty days, Clarence … Let’s do this!”

The comedian’s bit was first highlighted by Mediaite.

It is demonstrably because of people like Clarence Thomas that those such as Mr. Oliver are able to enjoy the freedoms that Americans too often take for granted, and which loud-mouthed Euro-leftists ought to appreciate, but too often, do not.

John Oliver used to be a modestly amusing social commentator, irrespective of his socialist bent.

Now, he is just another pontificating poofter who once made fun of Trump's Germanic roots ("Trumpf!") without a shred of self-awareness that but for the blood of American patriots who share Trump's belief in American exceptionalism, his own island nation would have become a province of Greater Germany. 
"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. -Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Isn't that bribery?  He is trying to bribe a Supreme Court Justice which is a felony.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

That's the way I see it; but one set of rules for the liberals and one set of rules for everyone else.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

That would be a pay cut compared to the value of his undeclared gifts, along with his Federal paycheck.
