Democrats are panicking because Donald Trump is about to pick another Supreme Court justice.
After the death of RBG, he will appoint his third, just in his first term.
This will give the court an undoubtedly “conservative” bend.
Not too bad, considering how liberal it’s been for the last forty years.
Democrats are only now realizing how bad it will be for them.
It may end for good their chance at winning “surprise liberal victories” in the courts:
The 5-4 conservative majority before Ginsburg’s death meant that the liberals on certain key issues only needed one conservative colleague siding with them.
Now, if Trump replaces her, they would need two, with likely implications for headline-grabbing issues on which liberals have prevailed in recent years, including abortion and gay rights, as well as lesser-known cases.
D.C. liberals are crying in their champagne as they realize the odds of the left winning big in the courts are all but disappearing.
After Kavanaugh was appointed, there was a slight conservative edge in the court. That meant for liberals to win big cases, a conservative would have to had “swung” to their side.
We saw that on numerous occasions recently, as Bush-appointed John Roberts often sided with the left.
But with RBG gone, Trump’s third pick gives the court a 6-3 conservative lean.
It’s unlikely the left will be able to squeak out victories on major cases, since it would require two justices to jump side to aid them.
Not that any patriot in America feels sorry for them.
For decades, Democrats have used the courts to force their agenda. As far back as the 70s, leftists have imposed radical polities onto this country through the courts, despite what Americans believed.
Many considered that tyranny since voters had no say in what the courts would do.
Now the tables have turned, which is why Democrats are panicking.
But they have nothing to fear. Conservatives aren’t known for “radical activism,” but simply upholding the Constitution as it was written.
That means we might be looking at a SCOTUS that cares about family values, American traditions, free markets, and the right to bear arms
Can’t complain about that.
- If Trump gets another justice on the SCOTUS, he creates a 6-3 majority.
- Liberals will no longer be able to get “surprise” victories.
- Democrats have been panicking ever since RBG died.
