Progressives take increasingly aggressive aim at the Supreme Court, branding it “illegitimate,” and recommending everything from expanding the number of Justices to ignoring their rulings entirely, but are any of their proposed schemes workable in the real world and what is the best way to proceed when the Court goes astray from your perspective? In… Continue reading What is the proper remedy for an “illegitimate” Supreme Court?
As we await the final Supreme Court decision on abortion, we should all do well to remember the the Courts are no substitute for the Democratic process. As the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg put it, “Doctrinal limbs too swiftly shaped may prove unstable.” This is especially true when even liberal legal scholars believe Roe… Continue reading Abortion, the courts, and the need to pass laws via the democratic process
Democrats and the mainstream media repeatedly warn that democracy itself is in peril, under attacks not seen since the Civil War, while simultaneously pushing to demolish key pillars of our system of government included but not limited to the filibuster, the Electoral College, and the composition of the Supreme Court. It’s almost like democracy means… Continue reading One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?
If you think the government is dysfunctional now, imagine what it will look like when every department and program is subject to an endless, see-saw partisan battle, coming and going practically with each election cycle. That’s precisely what will happen if 50 votes is the new 60 in the Senate. As Democrats press ahead with… Continue reading Radical change in America is hard for a reason, progressives should learn it well at their own peril

Call it a no-compromise compromise: Democrats use the Republicans to provide their stamp of approval on a portion of their wishlist, then violate the longstanding democratic norms they claim to care so much about by going it alone on the rest. Even more incredibly, President Biden made this announcement on the very same day he… Continue reading The bipartisan infrastructure push, part two: This is definitely not the way things are supposed to work
While Democrats and the mainstream media manufacture the meme that Republicans and conservatives are engaged in an all out assault on democracy so dire that the Republic itself might not survive, it might be helpful to consider their own record on the matter. It was less than a year ago they undertook a revolution in… Continue reading Democracy under assault, I know this because the media told me so!
Can someone please ask Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden why they were supporting racism for decades by liberally using the practice? They were all for it before they were against it, but now the filibuster is a very bad tool of white supremacy, amazing how that works. Former President Barack Obama set the… Continue reading The filibuster is racist now too
From the filibuster to originalist interpretation of the Constitution, liberal scholars increasingly insist that their point of view is privileged, even when it changes, and even when they’re making up the facts and obfuscating themselves.
