Barrett is Right

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 13, 2020

         IN AN OPENING STATEMENT AT SENATE CONFIRMATION HEARINGS YESTERDAY ON HER NOMINATION TO THE SUPREME COURT, JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT SAID THE FOLLOWING: “COURTS ARE NOT DESIGNED TO SOLVE EVERY PROBLEM OR RIGHT EVERY WRONG IN OUR PUBLIC LIFE. THE POLICY DECISIONS AND VALUE JUDGMENTS OF GOVERNMENT MUST BE MADE BY THE POLITICAL BRANCHES ELECTED BY AND ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE. THE PUBLIC SHOULD NOT EXPECT THE COURTS TO DO SO AND THE COURTS SHOULD NOT TRY.”

         THIS IS EXACTLY OPPOSITE WHAT THE LEFT BELIEVES. THEY BELIEVE IN A SO-CALLED “LIVING CONSTITUTION,” BY WHICH THEY MEAN JUDGES GET TO MAKE THEIR OWN LAWS AND INTERPRET THE CONSTITUTION, NOT THE WAY THE FOUNDERS WROTE IT, BUT THE WAY THEY THINK IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN WRITTEN, READING RIGHTS INTO IT THAT DON’T EXIST.

         THE LEFT HAS ADVANCED ITS POLICIES THROUGH THE COURTS, NOT CONGRESS, AT LEAST SINCE THE 1960S AND REGARDS PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE AS BARRETT DOES A THREAT TO THEIR AGENDA. THEY ARE SUCH A THREAT, BUT THEY ARE PROTECTORS OF OUR CONSTITUTION, WHICH THEY TAKE AN OATH TO DEFEND. BARRETT SHOULD BE CONFIRMED. I’M CAL THOMAS.
