A bombshell report by NPR yesterday revealed that Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor refused to be in chambers with Justice Neil Gorsuch because he refused to wear a face mask. The problem is the report was a lie, according to Sotomayor and Gorsuch.
JUST IN. SCOTUS releases a short joint statement from Sonia Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch:
"Reporting that Justice Sotomayor asked Justice Gorsuch to wear a mask surprised us. It is false. While we may sometimes disagree about the law, we are warm colleagues and friends."

The far-left Justice and center-right Justice have disagreements on the law and the Constitution, but they have worked well together since President Trump nominated Gorsuch as his first of three Supreme Court Justices. In fact, they have openly described each other as a friend. This contradiction about the reporting by NPR is a blow to the publication’s credibility, which has been fading in recent years after decades of increasingly progressive bias.
According to The Post Millennial:
The NPR story, written by Nina Totenberg, stated that court sources told the outlet that Sotomayor felt unsafe in close proximity with others, particularly those who are unmasked.
In response, Chief Justice John Roberts allegedly instructed the other judges and court staffers to mask up, with Gorsuch being the only one to go against the instructions.
“They all did. Except Gorsuch, who, as it happens, sits next to Sotomayor on the bench. His continued refusal since then has also meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justices’ weekly conference in person, joining instead by telephone,” wrote Totenberg, who goes on to state that Gorsuch’s repeated refusal to mask up has prompted Sotomayor to work remotely, out of the office.
Speaking with Fox News on Tuesday Night, network host and reporter Shannon Bream stated that a source at the Supreme Court said that there has been no such request from Roberts for judges to wear masks to arguments, and that no such request came from Sotomayor to Gorsuch either.
“A source at the Supreme Court says there has been no blanket admonition or request from Chief Justice Roberts that the other Justices begin wearing masks to arguments. The source further stated Justice Sotomayor did not make any such request to Justice Gorsuch. I’m told, given that fact, there was also no refusal by Justice Gorsuch.” reported Bream. “The justices are all vaccinated and boosted and they do test before taking the bench for arguments.”

This isn’t the first time NPR has lied for political effect, and it won’t be the last. They have run their “public” news organization loose and fast for years in an effort to smear conservatives and promote the radical progressive agenda.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
