SCOTUS Returns

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 4, 2017

         THE SUPREME COURT IS BACK AND YOU CAN BET ON ONE THING: THE LEFT AND THEIR MEDIA ALLIES WILL DO ALL THEY CAN TO TRY TO KEEP THE CONSERVATIVE JUSTICES FROM OBEYING THE CONSTITUTION.

         THAT’S WHAT THEY DID WHEN OBAMACARE CAME BEFORE THE COURT. COLUMNS AND NEWS STORIES WERE RELENTLESS IN THEIR SUPPORT OF OBAMACARE. LIBERAL SENATORS OPENLY CAMPAIGNED FOR CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS TO UPHOLD OBAMACARE. HE DID, DECIDING IT WAS A TAX, WHICH EVEN THE SOLICITOR GENERAL DID NOT ARGUE. PRAISE WAS THEN HEAPED ON ROBERTS BY PEOPLE WHO HAD EARLIER DEMONIZED HIM.

         THE SAME TACTIC WILL BE USED THIS TIME IN CASES INVOLVING GAY RIGHTS, VOTING RIGHTS AND PRIVACY RIGHTS. JUSTICES ARE HUMAN AND THEY PREFER PRAISE TO CRITICISM. THE NEW JUSTICE, NEIL GORSUCH, WILL BE WATCHED MOST CLOSELY, AS WILL ANTHONY KENNEDY AROUND WHOM RETIREMENT RUMORS CONTINUE TO SWIRL.

         THE LEFT SECRETLY HOPES SPECIAL COUNSUL ROBERT MUELLER WILL START INDICTING PEOPLE AND SMEARING PRESIDENT TRUMP TO DERAIL ANY FUTURE APPOINTMENTS HE MIGHT MAKE. ONE THING IS FOR SURE, AS JUSTICE GINSBURG RECENTLY TOLD A GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY AUDIENCE: THIS TERM WILL BE “MOMENTOUS.” I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
