Well, this explains everything.

If you thought American voters were daft, check out the Phillipines, where Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr., a dictator's son, takes a huge lead in Philippine presidential election. Marcos Jr.'s father, Ferdinand Marcos Sr., ruled the Southeast Asian nation of 110 million for 21 years before being ousted in 1986. The elder Marcos tore up presidential term limits, imposed nine years of nationwide martial law, and brutally quashed political dissent. During his rule, tens of thousands were arrested and thousands of his critics and opponents killed, while political allies benefited from rampant cronyism. He and his wife, 89-year-old Imelda, were also estimated to have embezzled up to $10 billion from state coffers until a popular uprising drove the family into exile in Hawaii, where the elder Marcos died in 1989. Let's hope dear old dad wasn't a role model.

In an unanimous decision, The Supreme Court struck down a law ensuring a 35-foot "buffer zone" outside abortion clinics, ruling that it violated the first amendment preventing free speech of anti-abortion protesters. Then the Supreme Court erected a fence around itself. Got it.

While we don't know who leaked the draft opinion, there's only one person we do know of that had access to it, that would have no impediment to doing almost anything, and feels justified because she- yes, she- thinks the US is already at war. Maybe Clarence protests too much.
-Duty To Warn
