SCOTUS Politicization

Boom! Justice Clarence Thomas Had Predicted And Aspired To Achieve This Exact Reaction From Leftists

For thirty-one years now, Thomas has stuck to his Constitutional constructionist values. On issues ranging from religious freedom, government overreach, Second Amendment rights, and states’ autonomy, Thomas has served as a Justice committed to the true meaning of the Constitution, which is what brings that misery to our friends on the left. And Friday’s landmark ruling in the Dobbs V Jackson case may have been his most painful vote cast yet.

Leftwing Extremists, Robert Bork, And The Democrats’ Confirmation Karma

The pinnacle of Democrat borking had to be the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.  It marked the completion of their transition from donkeys to jackasses.  They accused Kavanaugh of being a sexual predator, on the basis of the word of a proven perjurer, and the claims of Michael Avenatti.  That would be the same Avenatti, who was once touted as a potential Democrat candidate for President, and is now a federal inmate – for extortion and embezzlement. 

Why The Left And Their Media Are Triggered by Senate SCOTUS Hearings

The Left also had something else in each of these cases, what is called in psychology “confirmation bias”.  That is, the Left typically does not begin with a neutral survey of the evidence and, on that basis, make a judgment about the truth of the matter.  They begin with their own ideological prejudices and on that basis decide what the facts are.

[VIDEO] Spartacus Sobs! Senator Booker Continues To Gush Over Ketanji Brown Jackson

For those who may not be old to enough to remember, there was a time when Democratic senators actually fulfilled their duties at these hearings by fairly scrutinizing a Supreme Court nominee to confirm his or her worthiness. But Booker’s priority is clearly on him preserving his joy and ensuring Jackson makes it to the bench: qualifications be damned.

Tucker Carlson In Their Crosshairs: The Media Ratchets Up Politicization of SCOTUS Nominee Hearings

This should not be hard for the left to grasp because this is the same argument they have used since at least the 1960’s, namely that one should not evaluate someone for a position on the basis of their skin color or gender because it is racist and/or sexist to do so.  However, it is now, in a miraculous act of transubstantiation, seen by the Left as racist or sexist not to do so.

Biden’s Destructive Supreme Court Bungle: Panderer In Chief

This may be why, according to a Jan. 30, 2022 ABC News/Ipsos poll, 76 percent of Americans, and even 54% of Democrats, want Biden to consider “all possible nominees” while only 23 percent want him to keep his pledge to nominate only a black woman – and even among non-white Americans, only 28% want Biden to limit himself to a black woman.  The American people, unlike Joe Biden and controlling forces in the “Democrat” Party, still believe in a colorblind America.

Don’t Start The Party Just Yet: There’s More Than Meets The Eye With SCOTUS Rulings

Imagine if a contractor, in order to obtain a contract, had to provide their customer the funds that would be used to pay them, and then in order to get paid had to meet certain onerous conditions to receive the payment they had provided in the first place.  It is difficult to see how this situation differs greatly from a situation where the government uses funds obtained from taxpayers to provide services to the taxpayer, but where such payment was subject to conditions the government might impose, including a condition of exclusivity.

SCOTUS Justices’ COVID Ignorance Illustrates Why They Should Stay In Their Lane

The proper role of the courts is, first, to rule on individual cases, with their decisions binding on a particular case’s litigants but no one else. Second and as Ambassador Alan Keyes put it to me on the phone years ago, their function is to act as an “alarm bell,” saying at times to the nation, “Beware! We think this law is unconstitutional; you need to take a look at it.” If the people are convinced, it’s then their job to elect officials who will effect the necessary change.

To Dems, Supreme Court Is Radical

There are six justices that Republican Presidents appointed with the hope of a conservative view of the Constitution. This plan has not always played out with Chief Justice Roberts often siding with the Liberal three justices. I find it interesting that Pappas refers to thinking not aligned with him as radical. So much for bipartisan thinking. It does not exist in today’s government.

The Supreme Court’s Day of Reckoning is Coming

Ruling that last minute ad-hoc election changes were unconstitutional would have been relatively straightforward — but the court didn’t.  Hearing the election fraud evidence and adjudicating the result would have created a political crap-storm — but it would have been the right thing to do.
