Alito, his wife and Roberts secretly recorded discussing politically sensitive topics by liberal activist

A left-wing activist on Monday released secret recordings of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and his wife, as well as Chief Justice John Roberts, discussing a range of politically sensitive topics.

In conversation with the activist, who represented herself as a religious conservative and did not disclose in the recordings she released that she was producing them and would make them public, Justice Alito endorses her suggestion that “people in this country who believe in God have got to keep fighting for that – to return our country to a place of Godliness.” “Well, I agree with you, I agree with you,” Alito says.

At another point, the activist represents herself as a devout Catholic, telling the justice, “I don’t know that we can negotiate with the left in the way that, like, needs to happen for the polarization to end. I think that it’s a matter of, like, winning.”
“I think you’re probably right,” Alito responds. “On one side or the other — one side or the other is going to win. I don’t know. I mean, there can be a way of working, a way of living together peacefully, but it’s difficult, you know, because there are differences on fundamental things that really can’t be compromised. They really can’t be compromised. So, it’s not like you are going to split the difference.”

When Roberts was confronted on the same issue, he replied that it is not our job.

There are definitely Christian Nationalists on the Supreme Court.

Alito will have already formed his judgment on every case that comes before him. He will rule as Opus Dei commands, and they are not nice people.

It involves a man who brags about grabbing women by the pussy, chanting swear words in church, sexually abusing women, falsifying documents, cheating on your wives, having sex with porn stars and sex workers. Marrying your sex worker and calling soldiers who gave their life for their country suckers and losers

With Godliness like that, who needs the devil?
