SAN DIEGO — Photos of an upside-down American flag flying on Supreme Court Justice Alito’s flagpole recently surfaced. Trump’s Stop the Steal movement has used the upside-down American flag to symbolize that Biden is an illegitimate president and that he won the 2020 election through fraud.  There are now demands that Alito recuse himself from cases involving Trump and the 2020 election.

Alito claims that his wife raised the flag to protest a “F**k Trump” sign on a neighbor’s lawn.  I anticipate discovering evidence that points to a more damning explanation.

–An email Justice Thomas sent to Alito with the subject heading: “Blame your wife!”

— A letter Alito mailed to Mike Pence on January 5, 2021, that features a picture of a noose and warns him he’ll have to hang out at the Capitol if he certifies Biden’s election.

— Thousands of pardon forms dated January 20, 2025, for those indicted for the January 6, 2021, siege of the Capitol.  The signature line is left blank in anticipation of Trump’s inauguration.

–A storage room in his house filled with red MAGA hats, Donald Trump mug shots, hundreds of copies of the God Bless the USA Bible, boxes of top-secret government documents shipped to him shortly after the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, and a full set of Donald Trump digital trading cards.

–Downloads of every episode of Steve Bannon’s podcast “The War Room.”

–A portrait of Eileen Cannon with the inscription, “Justice delayed is justice denied, ha ha.”

–Most pertinently, every question Alito raised and comments he made in the Supreme Court’s hearing of the Trump immunity case.
