I think itís too early to assume Biden reaches that low on the totem pole. I certainly believe he will get there but itís too soon to make your bold claim.

Great example of judicial activism (a/k/a judicial tyranny). I didn't know 9 unelected, unaccountable black robes were the law of the land. I thought the Constitution was.

You didn't detect the sarcasm? (In case you're still slow on the uptake that was a rhetorical question.)

A three-in-one court system: Nine black robes interpret, apply and often make the laws they're interpreting and applying.

The Founding Fathers could have save a lot of time and ink by simply writing that the Supreme Court is the law of the land.

Looks much like the parade they just had in N Korea.
And Moscow on May 5th.

All summer we heard there was no place for Nat Guard on our streets, and here we are now.....more troops here than in Iraq. But then, current IRAQI government is probably of much higher quality and honor than the Biden crew coming in.....
