Lately there have been several posts from those supporting #MisterTrump stating that they need to support him because by doing so, the Supreme Court may be “saved.” For some, this reason is not the only deciding factor of their support, but rather they are voting for Trump because of the alternative in Hillary Clinton. If this was purely a political issue, I can see that argument to an extent, although I don’t fully agree with it. Unfortunately, it’s more than a political issue, but more on that in due time.
As it’s been well established, the next President of the United States will more than likely appoint 2-4 Supreme Court Justices in the course of the next 4-8 years, along with numerous federal judges across this country. The premise has been laid out before us. We must vote for Donald J. Trump because the Supreme Court hangs in the balance. We know what kind of judges Hillary Clinton will appoint. With Mr. Trump, we at least have a chance to get constitutionalists appointed. Sound familiar? Surely you’ve heard this argument in some form more than once.
Excuse me while I take a bite of my crap sandwich.
It’s also been well established that it’s a coin toss as to who lies more frequently: Donald J. Trump or Hillary R. Clinton. Seriously. Take a quarter and assign a side to a candidate, and give it a flip. There’s today’s biggest liar. Repeat tomorrow. (Awesome job, America!)
Earlier this morning I made a Facebook post asking this question:
Can anyone please tell me what Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices David Souter, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Conner and District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder all have in common?
Furthermore, can anyone please tell me what Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonya Sotomayer, and Elena Kagan all have in common?
After some great guesses from some of my Facebook friends, here are the answers I was looking for. To the first question, Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices David Souter, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Conner, and District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder have this one thing in common: They were all nominated by Republican Presidents, and at their core, are/were not bonafide constitutionalists, they are/were leftist ideologues.
Chief Justice John Roberts, nominated by President George W. Bush put the screws to the American people not once, but twice with the disastrous, unconstitutional Obamacare law. Justices Souter, and O’Conner, nominated by Presidents George H. Bush and Ronald Reagan respectively, were once hopefuls to overturn Roe v. Wade. Instead, Souter, in a joint opinion with Justices Anthony Kennedy and Sandra Day O’Connor in 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey, celebrated Roe as a landmark that all sides in the abortion debate must now accept.
Justice Harry Blackmun, nominated by Richard Nixon, is best known as the author of the Court’s opinion in Roe v. Wade. Justice John Paul Stevens, nominated by Gerald Ford, was another staunch supporter of abortions. And then there’s this peach, nominated by President George W. Bush: District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder. You can thank him for blocking North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law causing an national uproar.
I realize these judges are human and will not always come down on the right side of the law and the Constitution. But the aforementioned judges have slowly lurched to the left over time, (some faster than others) and have left many conservatives scratching their heads. You see, Republican Presidents are great at not picking good judges who believe firmly in our Constitution. It’s funny how it works though. Democrat Presidents know good and well the type of judges to nominate. They’re not afraid to throw people like Elena Kagan and Sonya Sotomayer in your face.
Now for the answer to the last part of the question. What do Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonya Sotomayer, and Elena Kagan all have in common? Answer: You can always count on them to vote according to their leftist ideology, often times bastardizing the Constitution. Again, the Democrats have it figured out. They don’t worry about the future of the court because they know exactly who it is they’re nominating.
And guess what? In many cases, whether it’s Supreme Court Justices or other Federal Judge appointees across our country, Republicans are right there with bated breath ready to give them their stamp of approval. It’s sickening how many times our elected Republican Senators sell us down the river with their votes of approval for liberal judges.
Here, eat another bite of that
Trump crap sandwich.
So forgive me if I don’t believe it’s a necessity to vote for a Republican because of the Supreme Court. If God didn’t use #MisterTrump‘s lie clock as a ceiling fan, then perhaps it would be more believable that he would actually follow through, and nominate constitutionalists to our courts.
As Steve Deace correctly points out, long after all the Bible-believing Christians are put in jail for their beliefs (hello Kim Davis), they’ll still be selling us that empty line of “vote Republican for good judges.”
