Confirmed: Barrett took the ticket

What does it profit a woman to gain the US Supreme Court, but lose her soul?

Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett sold a book advance for $2 million, according a Monday report. Barrett’s advance is the largest for a Supreme Court justice since Clarence Thomas and Sandra Day O’Connor wrote books, according to Politico. The book will discuss how judges should not bring their personal feelings and opinions into the courtroom, publishing sources told the outlet.

Big book advances are one of the most reliable guides to personal corruption that exist today, short of being put on the corporate boards of foreign corporations. As a publisher, I can attest to the extreme unlikelihood that Barret's book will ever come close to earning out its advance, especially not without the bulk buys by her paymasters.

The complete dereliction of duty by the US Supreme Court following the November 2020 elections wasn't surprising, but it did confirm that the last embers of the Republic that survived the establishment of Empire in 1865 had been extinguished.

UPDATE: Bill Barr and Mike Pence were also gifted book deals. Quite the collection of talented writers, it would seem:

While some veterans of Donald Trump’s administration are having a tough time selling memoirs about their time in power, others with ties to Trump who didn’t embrace his election conspiracy theories have sold book deals.

William Barr, Trump’s former attorney general who resigned two days before Christmas after disagreeing publicly with Trump’s voter fraud conspiracy theories, recently sold a book about his time at the Justice Department, according to three people familiar with the deal. This will be Barr’s first book and he started writing it within the last two months, according to one of the people.

Some Trump figures have made millions selling their books, including former Vice President Mike Pence, who Simon and Schuster bought the rights for two books for reportedly $3 to 4 million.

Whenever I see a woman proposed as new hero of the right, I would be willing almost any bet on her turning out to be a fraud. If it is difficult for a man to go against the mainstream, it is essentially impossible to do so for a woman. Greene and Noem are the next frauds who are built up to mislead the right. For the same reason I am skeptical about Le Pen (France) and Meloni (Italy). Maybe I am being unfair vis a vis Le Pen; her case is slightly different because she has inherited her position. And not that being male makes you immune to the temptations of the satanic ticket; far from it. But it is simply unnatural that a woman would be the leader of a movement who goes against the incumbent powers.

Blogger ThatWouldBeTelling April 20, 2021 8:45 AM  

I can remember when I first learned about this scam, I think from Gary North who'd also been a book publisher. Then still pretty powerful Newt Gingrich had gotten an improbable book advance, and this in the contexts of his previously hammering the former Democratic Speaker of the House Jim Wright on a really obviously corrupt book scam which led to the latter's resignation, and Gingrich being investigated for previously co-authoring one of the very books by a politician that was worthwhile:

Window of Opportunity, published by Tom Doherty Associates per Amazon under the Tor imprint back when that wasn't a bad sign in 1983-6 period. It was co-authored by David Drake, and the only reason I wouldn't recommend reading it today is that it's impossibly optimistic today, except for what Musk might accomplish with SpaceX.

You cannot agree with everything a person does. Trump was a great president but he was a civnat and he placed to much hope in the Vax. He gave into Totem thinking instead of following the numbers. That and he should have arrested people instead of playing the court game.

Blogger Jeroth April 20, 2021 10:39 AM  

I can't help but wonder if Trump himself is just a much more reluctantly obedient ticket taker. Maybe the truth is you do have some freedom to kick and scream and "do things the hard way", but you never really have any hope of giving back the ticket unless you are willing to give up literally everything, including your life and your family's safety, to do so.

"Of course I tell them to get the vaccine. I had the virus and still got one." I half expected him to say "Hell, get all three just to cover your bases." He resists, drags his feet, throws tantrums, and does some good things in the process, but in the end he always submitted when the pressure reached a climax. Maybe setting an example of reluctant submission is better than one of eager submission, but it's still just all theater.

She is a Globalist or in league with them. Another example of how Trump continually picked bad people. No wonder Trump failed to cross the Rubicon.

I'm a big fan of Clarence Thomas, but that's not really much of a counter.

Thomas's "ticket" status is basically unknowable unless there is actually a majority on the court that might rule along with him. It's easy to cast protest votes all day long (even consistently and in the right direction). But it could be that, much like Congress, they'll vote for these things all day long until there's an actual risk that the bill might pass. Then the people that stood strong for dozens of votes that were functionally meaningless are not with you when the chips are down.

Well, you certainly gave yourself an appropriate pseudonym. Thomas is a legitimately interesting person with quite a life story to relate as of 2007, and no cucking I know of since then.

She's a chronic liar, with some kind of borderline/narcissistic personality disorder, similar to Meghan Markle. Like Markle, who dressed herself like Princess Di, down to the brand of perfume, Palin changed her appearance to try and look like Oprah and Barbara Walters. The McCain team cleaned her up considerably during the campaign. It's unlikely Palin graduated from high school, much less college. Her peccadillos and those of her family were easier to sweep under the rug in the great white north.
