Biden Threatens Supreme Court Justices to Their Faces in State of the Union Address (Video)

Joe Biden, amped up on “carbs” according to the White House, threatened Supreme Court justices seated a few feet away in the House chamber during the State of the Union address Thursday night. Speaking about the court’s ruling putting abortion back in the hands of the states, Biden looked the justices in the eye, botched the line, but the threat was clear.

Six of the nine justices were in attendance: Chief Justice John Roberts along with Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Ketanji Brown Jackson. Retired Justice Anthony Kennedy also attended.

Biden: “With all due respect, Justices, women are not without electoral, electoral power! Excuse me, electoral or political power. You’re about to realize just how much you’re (mumbling)”


Longer version:

Four years ago then Senate Minority Leader, now Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened Supreme Court justices over an abortion case in a speech in front of the Supreme Court.

Liberal activists tried to intimidate conservative justices over a draft abortion decision with protests at their homes in the national capital area. Justice Brett Kavanaugh was targeted in an unsuccessful assassination attempt in 2022.

Biden’s speech as prepared shows the threat was adlibbed. White House transcript:

Many of you in this Chamber and my predecessor are promising to pass a national ban on reproductive freedom.

My God, what freedoms will you take away next?

In its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade the Supreme Court majority wrote, “Women are not without –

electoral or political power.”

No kidding.

Clearly, those bragging about overturning Roe v. Wade have no clue about the power of women in America.

They found out though when reproductive freedom

was on the ballot and won in 2022, 2023, and they will find out again, in 2024.

If Americans send me a Congress that supports the right to choose, I promise you, I will restore Roe v. Wade as the law of the land again!

America cannot go back. I am here tonight to show the way forward. Because I know how far we’ve come.
