Replace Sotomayor with Pinocchio or Bozo the Clown; make idiocy even more visible—if possible

by Jon Rappoport

During the Supreme Court’s oral arguments over the Biden vaccine mandates, Justice S-Protein issued this gem:

“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition and many on ventilators.”

Even the Washington Post had to admit this was sheer bloviation: “According to HHS data, as of Jan. 8 there are about 5,000 children hospitalized in a pediatric bed, either with suspected covid or a confirmed laboratory test. This figure includes patients in observation beds. So Sotomayor’s number is at least 20 times higher than reality, even before you determine how many are in ‘serious condition’.”

Senator Rand Paul suggested Soto the Great might be getting her numbers from that serial liar, Fauci.

Also, during the Court hearing, Justice Clarence Thomas asked, “Is a vaccine the only way to treat COVID?” Unless he was making a joke, he’s been living in cave for the past two years.

BUT these and other remarks from Justices did something unexpected. They opened the door to a discussion of the mandates based on the merits, on facts, on whether the mandates are scientifically justified.

From now on, other court challenges to the mandates can refer to the Supremes—attorneys can try to introduce evidence that the mandates are medically and scientifically insane.

Many legal loons, you see, have argued, for years, that governments can command the citizenry to do anything short of jumping off high rooftops—because in the interest of public safety, and during a declared Emergency, official powers are unlimited. And the standard for imposing mandates is simply: the government believes it is doing the right thing.

That brutal shut door has now been opened a crack, owing to the crackpot assertion issuing from the mug of Ms. Soto Bozo.

She Whose Nose Grows Longer has done us all a service.

Of course there are other mandate issues here: the federal colossus ripping away freedom from the people; the central government overriding the Constitutional powers of the States; religious exemptions; the appointing of OSHA to oversee regulation-and-enforcement, a task the agency was never created to carry out.

But now one more obvious factor has been introduced. Does the SUBSTANCE of the mandates make any sense at all?

Reported COVID vaccine injuries have just passed the one-million mark. The well-known Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare study concluded such reports should be multiplied by 100 to arrive at a true figure.

What would you expect to happen, in the way of injury and death, if the Biden vaccine mandates are upheld and made air tight in every nook and cranny of the country?

And what would you expect to happen as the number of vaccine-refusers then grows and grows—because there are a whole lot of people who just don’t like to be pushed around, especially when severe health damage is the result.

The feds are going to book rooms in every venue from the Ritz all the way down to the Seedy Hooker Motel 12, to house resisters from Nome to Key West?

“President Biden welcomes you. Here is your key. A security guard will take you down the hall. Don’t try to escape. The canine patrol will hunt you down.”

Maybe the old wobbly on-again-off-again deranged occupant of the Oval Office can’t see the consequences of his actions, but his string-pullers can. Big-time blowback day after day would not be their favorite breakfast cereal.

Ditto for the Supremes. At least for the time being, it looks like they’re going to figure out a way to pass the buck and stay the execution of the country.

Even Soto the Clown can read large handwriting on the wall.

CODA: How can I put this, so self-styled sophisticated tech-heads will grasp it? More and more people are realizing that government science is bullshit. It’s one layer of bullshit piled on another layer. It’s a whole slew of overlapping and cross-referenced and integrated data sets of bullshit.

The PCR test, the definition of a COVID case, the case numbers, the vaccine harm—more and more people can spot these fakeries and go down the rabbit hole that far.

So there’s a limit to the value of virtue signaling designed to support the central government. At some point, the signaler is painting a target on his back.

Catching my drift? If these vaccine mandates are rigidly enforced, the beauty of being a Collectivist ideologue is going to fade.

When freedom becomes the only default position, come hell or high water, a virtue signaler looks very much like a jailer.

People don’t like jailers.


When 20,000 people at a football game stop shouting, “Let’s go, Brandon,” and opt for that NEEDLE chant instead, virtue signalers will want to test positive, so they can lock themselves in a room and try to develop a Cloak of Invisibility.

    I doubt humans are able to get rid of the parasites. The parasites have infected everything: science, education, massmedia, police… A body that cannot get rid of parasites, will die. It is simple as that.

    Last time when this happened we have a global flood. But some of parasites survived. Now they are even better prepared than humans. In case of a global catastrophe they will do better than humans

    • Yvonne Blasy says:

      vakzine macht frei – Perhaps then the fact that Ivermectin is basically banned reveals that its symbology – anti parasitic – offends them. Or is it because there may actually be parasites also in the death jab, hence its effectiveness?

      • Marten says:

        Ivermectin is good, but MMS is even better !!!!

        • Researcher says:

          There’s no virus so why do people need either? This is just controlled opposition nonsense to prop up the virus myth.

          Ivermectin is very toxic. HCQ causes torsades de pointes.

          Both are totally unnecessary.

          As for MMS it’s highly toxic and dangerous.

          MMS is dangerous, toxic and potentially carcinogenic.

          There are no viruses to kill, no germs to destroy. Everything is internal and endogenous.

  2. Need A Ladder says:

    Another perspective on this matter of what APPEARS to be a false claim made by Sotomayor which has elicited a tremendous reaction would be to consider the TACTICS that are used in legal argumentation in the courtroom on a regular basis.

    Questions, statements, arguments, quotes of fact can be stated in such a way as to purposely elicit counter argument so as to stimulate exhaustive thorough discussion and opinions and evaluations. One can merely repeat what they have heard knowing that it’s a public perception and a claim of fact by others in certain governing positions, yet without stating this or making it at all obvious to the public, they may actually know that it’s exaggerated. I believe this could be what is happening with Sotomayor.

    Judges use these tactics all the time, they will purposely over emphasize a statistic, a claim, etc. and wait for the rebuttal, and evaluate quietly in their mind. The courtrooms are not another episode of The Brady Bunch. It’s too easy for people to jump on direct statements as being meant as fact in a courtroom. I rather just wait and see how they decide while simply enjoying the show and observing and learning about how it all works.

    Even if that claim that there is 100k kids in hospitals were true or if it was 1 million is not enough to force jab a population with what is clearly an experiment and already has so much proof it harms and again IT IS AN EXPERIMENT.

    We already have Tuskeegee and other experiments and Nuremberg as precedent against such experiments by force. I doubt the Supreme Court judges would be that stupid as to allow such a mandate. It’s just a part of the way they argue cases. They are not all going to sit in there and just say “Well we are here and we all agree it’s an illegal mandate so let’s just discuss how it’s just an illegal mandate.”

    • One time guest says:

      Just to make sure I’m following you here: the extensive testing using actual scientific method to determine the level of antibody stimulation/ resistance to virus/ decrease in severity are all insufficient as proof of effectiveness, but the unverified user- submitted claims of adverse effects are irrefutable proof of harm? It seems your standard for proof varies wildly.

  3. Lisa H says:

    Sotomayor is EXACTLY what Obama had in mind when he chose her. Don’t let bothersome details like the law, the constitution, and the bill of rights interfere in your rulings.

  4. sk says:

    Has the “pandemic” opened enough eyes to realize that nearly everything the government does is derived from thin air? Probably not.

  5. Low Voltage says:

    Maybe the Wall Street bean counters did some cocktail napkin calculations and realized what enforcing the mandate would do to the residential real estate and rental market?

  6. Diane says:

    THIS is you at your best. We need more of this.

  7. AJ says:

    Well Jon you have clearly stated exactly what these mandates and science has become; BULLSHIT!!!

    The smell from the science supporting the mandates and vaccines will continue permeate the air no matter how the FDA, CDC, etc explain it.

    And you are right that more this BULLSHIT is exposed over time will hopefully awaken the delusional vaxxed.

    Scotus has reduced and exposed it’s credibility to the level of expertise as total fools. And has brought pointed attention to lies regarding this plandemic– what is being spread to the public.

    The issue is does the executive branch have the Constitutional power to make law over shadowing the power of congress. By exposing the continual fraud, lies, false science, deadly side effects and deaths from vaccinations enforces denial of vaccine mandates and the vaccines.
    Scotus exposed itself to the world to be complete morons. Which is why they denied lawsuits against states over the 2020 voter election coup fraud. Scotus sounds like “the Joy Reid Show”.

    “Also, during the Court hearing, Justice Clarence Thomas asked, “Is a vaccine the only way to treat COVID?” Unless he was making a joke, he’s been living in cave for the past two years.”

    Is it possible that by making that remark he wanted to bring the use of the meds, which we must not name’, to the forefront?

  11. Edward John Bernhart DDS says:

    Their wish is that the “blow-back” become violent at which point the authoritarian, surveillance society which they have in the wings becomes tightens its grip, further.

    However, I must admit that the second amendment is the only threat keeping us from the fate of Australia or Austria.

  12. David Herin says:

    Yes, basically, no one likes to be bullied, hassled, brow-beaten into submission, which is what is being attempted now. Surely, the chorus is growing against the brow-beaters. But let’s be careful not to incite violence on any level or insinuate that it’s okay to brow-beat back. That’s how we are fed into the divide-and-conquer meat grinder.

    But I do agree with Jhn’s article in that we need to point out the errors, the ironies and the stupidity, and in this case the ‘law of diminishing returns’ when it comes to bullying. So it’s actually a warning to the bullies and the virtue signalers.

    But the real freedom that we all desire is different than what most people think. See my article: LIE: Freedom is the right to make my own choices.

    THAT says plenty for me, thank you!

    Though Jon is not known for using such strong language, regularly, but it is PASSED the times to get the message through some very thick skulls.

    – “When this dog stops barking, and is glaring at YOU – WATCH OUT!

    Pretty darned telling, when even those who at first got “the vaxx”, are starting to turn away from the “pro-vaxx” agenda – realizing “buyer’s remorse” at the thought of being lied to – in order to get them to “Take the shot. No questions.“!

    What we are seeing, is the crumbling of an unstable and unwieldy EMPIRE – built upon mountains of lies.

      Only $1,200. What a bargain!

      This is the poison they used to inject into people (or still do in the case of Astra Zeneca and the Janssen shots) along with potentially deadly nanolipids and heavy metals, and call a “vaccine”. Lol

    Buyers remorse from both DJT & FJB:

    2) Just wear a mask and it’ll all go away.

    3) Just get swabbed even though you have no symptoms.

    4) Just get swabbed even though your symptoms are no more than a common cold.

    5) Just get the Jabs, and you won’t get hassled.

    6) Just get the Booster(s), and those bad symptoms won’t get worse.

    7) Just now realizing that there is no such thing as Fully Vxxd in Fauci World and what a Dupe you are.

  18. Brutus says:

    We can write articles like this on and on but this is not getting to the root cause.

    The root cause is we have replaced The God with a god.

    When this happens, and all those warnings and opportunities to come back to Him are ignored, its curtains, judgment. All laid out in the Scriptures.

    Go to sermon audio dot com and search in the topics for “How God Destroys Nations”. Listen to the 5 sermon series.

    And I’ll again ask for the source where “The Covid” to proven to exist.

    And that will be by a repeatable, objective, long accepted, medical means of determination.


  19. RegretLeft says:

    I think Justice Thomas was being coy; and he is doing just what you suggest: opening a discussion on the merits — finally!

    The Sixth Circuit panel ruling that lifted the stay on the OSHA mandate was shameful. Used verbatim the CDC talking points: since this is the “new normal” (the phrase occurred in the ruling) — and 800,000 have died, the government can do whatever it wants – it was really that simple.

    A Federal District Court in GA (or FL) was much better – querying Gov attorneys for their actual evidence for e.g. without a mandate X number of people will get sick and increase absenteeism and have Y impact on the economy. And how good that evidence was.

    Let’s talk merits! Justice Thomas agrees and I think he knows how that will play out.

  20. Roundball Shaman says:

    “Replace Sotomayor with Pinocchio or Bozo the Clown; make idiocy even more visible—if possible”

    Seeing that there are dimwits on the Supreme Court reveals a general truth: Most people that occupy positions of leadership and authority are utterly not qualified to occupy those positions.

    There are thousands (millions?) of desks around the Nation and the World that require a warm body to sit behind them. And that’s what they get – a warm body and little else. Somehow in some way a person has positioned themselves along the way to get to sit behind those desks. But for anyone who works under them or for members of the Public who rely on certain people to get things done… it becomes quickly obvious that the person with the position is not qualified for the spot.

    “Does the SUBSTANCE of the mandates make any sense at all?”

    It sure does once one knows that the ‘mandates’ have only one true purpose: to solidify more power in Government and to further enslave We the People. That is the mission statement of any Government act. When was the last act of Government that gave People more freedom?

    “More and more people are realizing that government science is bullshit. It’s one layer of bullshit piled on another layer.”

    Once again, this is the operating principle of many if not most organizations of every kind. And no wonder it stinks so bad in so many of these places.


    And all of our other body parts as well. And that also applies to the finger probes and various fondling going on for pay and benefits at all of our Nation’s airports.

  21. Ort says:

    Also, during the Court hearing, Justice Clarence Thomas asked, “Is a vaccine the only way to treat COVID?” Unless he was making a joke, he’s been living in cave for the past two years.

    I don’t despise Thomas as fervently as I used to; my original animus arose in response to his controversial nomination process. Back then, a lifetime ago, I bought into that lurid sociopolitical melodrama and accepted it at face value; at the time, I didn’t understand that such melodramas were a scripted artifact of our decadent, mendacious, surrealistic culture.

    That said, I haven’t exactly warmed up to him. He still strikes me a cranky old reactionary Uncle Tom– a humorless Bill Cosby.

    Still, there’s another possibility: perhaps it wasn’t a joke or demonstration of cluelessness, but an intentional open, rhetorical question intended to elicit negative responses for the record.

    Again, I’m still reluctant to give him credit for shrewdly asking a seemingly-stupid question in order to trigger smart answers. But in theory, such dumb questions “open the door” (as they say a lot in “Perry Mason” episodes) to the considerable evidence and argument that there are indeed much more effective and safe ways to treat “COVID”.

    Thomas may be living in a cave, but it’s another proof of “the world turned upside-down” that he seems like a paragon of rationality compared to the arrant fact-free bloviating of Sotomayor and other “justices”.

    • Mary says:

      As a lawyer, and an African American, I take issue with the idea that our longest serving justice is an “Uncle Tom.” I don’t know why people can’t see that calling conservative blacks that, especially rampant today, is unnecessary and unjust. Look into the history of that term, and who uses it. Trust me–you don’t want to be aligned with them. We are not Uncle Toms simply because we dare to defy the plantation of left-wing, Democrat party thought in every jot and tittle. As for me, I would never put Bill Cosby in the same category as Justice Thomas. Bill Cosby was actually convicted of a crime, by a jury of his peers. Justice Thomas was the victim of a smear campaign.

      If you read Justice Thomas’s opinions, especially his dissents, in the past 10 years, then you would harbor no doubt that he was being incisive and yes, subtle and triggering with his question, whether you want to give him credit for it or not. He has been the most unfairly criticized and lambasted Supreme Court Justice in our time, in my opinion. That business with Anita Hill has colored a lot of people’s perceptions. And yet, even people who should be skeptical of political maneuvers, especially by the Left, still fall prey to the same stupid deception. Go ahead and be reluctant to see him as the smart and principled man he is all you want, but don’t so far as to say (or foolishly believe) it was not a “dumb” question. It was a dumb question. It was the perfect question. (See my comment on this below). From the point of view of law, that is. But it would take too long to get into and explain, what is the purpose and methodology of a Supreme Court oral argument, or any appellate oral argument for that matter.

  22. Walkintherain says:

    If we really want to help ourselves we all need to stay well. Vaxxed and unvaxxed alike need to take more C (it’s hard to take too much, but the daily dose is not enough) and especially zinc. Zinc can make you a little nauseous so take it with a meal or at bedtime. Works for me.

  23. maria says:

    The ‘pan’demic was an exercise in creating virtual reality.
    A successful exercise.

    What you have to do, to say, – to make people move. Even against themselves.
    Masses of people – overnight, made a dangerous nonsense realer than what is real.
    Everyone’s been wandering round masked for the last 2 years, some even indoors, afraid of air.

    It is a while now since strange personae seized world power with their corporate machinery.
    They knew they had to be the only ones speaking.
    They knew they had to spout their jargon all the time.
    Put the little messages everywhere a person looked or listened in the super-markets and in the car-parks.
    They knew it was about eyes – so they did the photo calls.

    In the end, in Bergamo, Italy where it all kicked off for the western world, later, the office of statistics COULD only confirm 12 deaths directly from covid 19. The rest of the statistics attributed to the virus were people around 80 years of age with 2 or 3 or more co-morbidities. I believe there is no dispute on this.

    At the time the world thought it saw streams of coffins transported by the army.

    Background info to that:
    There are usually a number of bodies in a hospital mortuary – that’s what it’s there for.
    Cremation is not usual in Italy – burial in a cemetary is. People’s relatives organize it.
    When the scare started cremation was ordered.

    1. Relatives – who would ususally take charge – were put in quarantaine.
    2. Funeral parlours were closed.
    3. Everyone was in lock up.

    There was a delay.
    Who was free to take on the transport? The army.
    Why were the cameras of the world waiting for them?

    Eyes wide shut in Italy:
    As of today mandatory gene therapy jabs for over 50 year-olds.
    Difficult entry to a Post Office, a swimming pool, a church.

    There was a ‘Green Pass’ a short time ago – which has now morphed into a’Super Green Pass’ and applies to everybody. It is an on-going pass which has to be updated regularly on a smartphone within rather brief periods of time.

    Furthermore it means that:
    People who have received the first 2 vaccines do not count as ‘vaccinated’.
    So now the claims can be made that the intensive care beds are full of the ‘unvaccinated’.

    Watch Italy. Home of masonic lodges, popes and underworld elites.

    Since you consider yourself a real journalist, and are convinced that Covid is fake because people are really dying, and if not elderly, of other causes, like poisoned foods, atmospheric pollution, etc., you would undertake serious investigations of those causes which most certainly deserve exposure, showing what IS causing all of the deaths, with the same painstaking analysis you have been doing for Covid.

    It would be a great service and also expand your readership beyond those who continue to die from causes attributable to Covid, which seems to increase every time and everywhere some closing or relaxation of mask wearing or group clustering occurs, and decreases significantly in places where vaccines are accepted.

    • Cary says:

      Should read “some closings are reopened, like schools, or relaxation of mask wearing. . . .”

      • Cary says:

        A column two years ago? Must have been as effective as the – how many? – columns about Covid? I must have missed the one about the patent monopoly protection that prevents most of the world from being able to make their own decisions (a key phrase in all his writing whether you agree or not about vaccines) about having vaccines, and the sanctions that prevent certain countries from distributing theirs or even having them “approved.”

        That column you cite was undoubtedly effective and certainly put Monsanto/Bayer out of business. And he’s put an end to the welfare state for the financial industry and the trillions siphoned for it and the military for its successful campaigns. LOL.

  29. Yvonne Blasy says:

    Acquaintance says he had covid. Got double jabbed anyway. Later came down with covid again. Say what??? Wife is a nurse. She had to get jabbed or lose her job. My head spins. The tests show false positives. As Jon points out, the bloody thing has never been isolated. Yet there seem to be patents on a “gain of function corona virus” so to speak, going way back to 2003. Is any of this real?

  30. Cris M. says:

    The ongoing false pumping of ventilators and other perpaganda makes me conclude they are doing torture and setting up for more torture. The fraudulent claim by ‘sotomeyer’ and putting the word ‘children’ in sentence is psycho tactic, to use a femy cover snivel angle to push what is vile. People must wake up to the tactic. There are many docturs that are frauds, in on the schemes, any supposed doctur using a ventilator for a lung infection including pneunomia or any other, is fraud and torture. You do not use a ventilator for infection or ‘covid’.

    Using a ventilator can cause infection that’s why they don’t use them for infections, they can also harm vocal cords. Infection is handled [by] antibiotics and/or with aid of oxygen mask or nasal tubes if difficulty breathing, they also can remove fluid by suction. You do not use a ventilator.

    Ventilators take over breathing. They’re for use during some surgeries or if someone is in a coma. Not for infection. They can be used for torture or stealing organs from people, keep people alive, use paralyzing drug so person can’t move, but they can feel what’s being done but can’t scream. People aren’t factoring the fraud ‘wars’ on innocent people in other places by psychos in govt, and what they’re doing now, in our direction.

    It was cons who made the supposed systems, phony govt ‘states’, skoolz, media fake ‘medical’ cult, fake everything. Many cons inhabit the systems that’s why they made the schemes, and half are female. Do smiley act while commit harm and set up more terror. The situations won’t be stopped by anyone in govt or ‘court’.

    Supposed supreme court exposed themselves in Kelo v., and other such as refusal to hear ndaa case against indefinite detention, yet people ignore. Sharing info around us is only way to overpower false media and other cons.

    Appreciate the article Jon.

    • Kieron says:

      Well stated. Ventilators not only harm vocal cords and everything else you mentioned, they also can tear the fragile tissue of the trachea (windpipe) through intubation and extubation. I saw it happen to my best friend who came off a ventilator after being in a coma in 2016. He never really regained his full breath capacity thereafter, and ultimately didn’t survive. As you can surmise from the date, this was all pre-corona but it opened my eyes to something most people don’t understand about vents and breathing and the body’s instinct for survival.

    • Cary says:

      You left off the part about the SC deciding to appoint the President in 2000 instead of allowing the election to run its course. And deciding that somehow unlimited money in elections could lead to greater fairness. Legislatively there is also the limiting of ballot party names being represented to only two.

      I think that was prior to Sotomayor’s appointment.

      Are you arguing for SC term limits? It would make sense.

      • Cris M. says:

        The two I noted being more recent of what I consider large and heinous actions or on ndaa case, un-action, there have been many other egregious so-called rulings, and my position is none of it should exist, not govt/states or supposed courts, as both were/are made by previous generations of cons that run both today and is why the situations are as they are. That, and ignorance by too many people in letting any of it go on. The examples you note add to what is a long list.

        They and those in govt/states have used and yet use finger pointing and ‘maybe next time’ distractions to incrementally claim every right for themselves, while destroying ours. For instance kelo on property, and ndaa the right to due process, though second one is circular back to the problem, though also in that how vile the situation is, not even being entitled to hearing even by fraudulent courts. Their tactic over time has been to ‘take turns’ launching bad actions, then media pushes the ‘maybe next time’ perpaganda, knowing people continue to vote though makes no difference.

    As a lawyer, I appreciate this take (and largely agree), but I would like to make one nit-picky comment: Justice Thomas was neither living in a cave, nor making a joke!

    He asked a very important and legally significant question, for which he should be lauded. It’s not his place to assert: “There is another way to treat Covid aside from a vaccine.” No, then he’d be as silly as Sotomayor.

    A judge is supposed to ask questions from the bench during oral argument, not make independent, affirmative statements of fact, disjointed from questions posed. (That is more suitable for rendering a ruling — not listening during oral argument).

    It is also important to note how RARE it is for Justice Thomas to say ANYTHING at an oral argument. This longest-serving justice has literally sat silent at oral arguments for 10 years before breaking his silence. And though he was being subtle, his question is incisive to those paying attention.

    If there is more than one way to treat Covid, then a federal mandate does not make constitutional sense. Now, whether there will be enough justices to see it that way, remains to be seen.

    But I think the author’s remark about Justice Thomas was disappointingly flippant, IMHO. As someone else said on here, he is no fool. The author needs to get this kind of thing right since he has a following, and it’s an important issue that people will be looking for him to clarify, since he took it upon himself to do so.

    With that said, the remarks about the clown show presented by Justice Sotomayor was spot on, in my opinion!

      – Your post is oblivious as if the problem as if one judge makes any difference. Failure to recongnize at least 40% of lawywers are cabalists gang and they and courts have assaulted millions of people who don’t realize there is a conspiracy. Supposed ‘courts’ were conned the same time as ‘govt’ and fake ‘money’ and the monothiesm religions.
