JASON LEWIS: Radical Democrats Regard The Bill Of Rights As A Nuisance

The most dangerous of the Left's attacks on the rule of law is the deliberate attack on the U.S. Supreme Court. Of course, this is a “threat to democracy” because Supreme Court justices are nominated by the President and confirmed by Senators. But more troubling, because the judges' lifetime appointments were designed to counter mobs, this is a direct attack on the republic itself.

This is exactly what the crazy left has become.

But at some point, the Democratic Party's hypocrisy must become apparent to ordinary voters. Republican advisers say Illegitimate J6 Committee Says Merrick Garland Makes a Mockery of Congress Refuse to hand over The disjointed audio of President Joe Biden's interview with the special counsel was made even worse by his shaky performance during the presidential debate.

This Attorney General presided over a clearly weaponized Department of Justice, using white-collar Enron-era laws to prosecute J6. EnoughOnce again, these same Democrats are lecturing former President Donald Trump about respecting New York's out-of-control state courts while lambasting a sitting Supreme Court justice.

This is because they have no “limiting principle” to limit their insatiable desire to get the results they want from every legal decision.

No serious observer would confuse Chief Justice John Roberts with Justice Robert Bork, but that doesn't really matter to them: The Court has not, in fact, blazed a trail toward strict interpretivism; Roberts has pointed his finger up the wind on more than one occasion, and Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Neil Gorsuch both show shades of Anthony Kennedy.

But even dabbling in fundamentalism is taboo in anarchist circles, which explains the hysteria from the Democratic Party/media complex over a just-ended term that at least kept the republic intact.

Clearly, Democrats are furious that they couldn’t use the courts to prosecute Trump. The Supreme Court quickly saw through the dangerous plan, ruling 9-0 that conflating Donald J. Trump with Robert E. Lee to remove the former president from the ballot was, well… a threat to democracy.

As mentioned above, an attempt to charge the J6 protesters with violating the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (a 2002 law that bans financial “evidence tampering”) was defeated by a 6-3 majority.

But the decisive blow was the Supreme Court's ruling. Exemption Ironically, that may benefit Biden more than anyone else. History has never been on the side of the Garland witch hunt, for myriad reasons that have less to do with Trump and more to do with all of his successors. A president cannot perform his “official” duties if everything he says or does is subject to criminal prosecution by a weaponized Justice Department.

The Supreme Court's good week didn't end with Trump. After years of nibbling on the fringes of an out-of-control administrative state, the court finally ruled in favor of congressional intent and jury trial in two landmark cases.

that The Chevron principle was overturned. Federal agencies are given undue deference when interpreting ambiguities in the law. After years of watching “wetlands” and “endangered species” regulations trample on property rights, the Supreme Court reasserted its constitutional duty for Congress to make the law and for the judiciary to resolve disputes accordingly, rather than delegating power to unelected bureaucrats.

In a separate lawsuit, the Securities and Exchange Commission Can't conduct its own “tests” It is not surprising that Trump's pursuers are most outraged by this decision, which would impose penalties without due process approval.

They are just like any other person Putting EPA Pollution Regulation on Hold They may circumvent state authority through provisions of the Clean Air Act and not recognize such broad federal authority, a logical conclusion after the Supreme Court in West Virginia v. EPA struck down the Obama-Biden Clean Power Plan for lacking “express authorization of Congress.”

What the inimitable Justice Clarence Thomas said in another case was clear: Thomas explained Not only does the National Firearms Act of 1934 clearly define a “machine gun” as “a weapon which fires multiple shots automatically, without manual reloading, at the pull of the trigger,” but the ATF has “consistently taken the position that semi-automatic rifles equipped with bump stocks are not machine guns under the law.”

This was undoubtedly salt in the wounds of liberal activists who have yet to forgive Thomas for his opinion in Bruen that the Second Amendment is not a “constitutional orphan” after all. But it didn't stop his “fundamentalist” colleagues from concluding that domestic violence perpetrators who are “recognized as posing a credible threat” could be disarmed before conviction.

Why the Supreme Court He even refused to stand up. Even the pro-life attempt to get the Food and Drug Administration to re-regulate the abortion drug mifepristone might have drawn cheers from liberals, but the court's augmenters were too busy yelling about the long-delayed decision to strike down the 9th Circuit's idiotic ruling that street sweeping constitutes “cruel and unusual punishment.” (Related article: Jason Lewis: The Deep State is deeper than anyone could ever imagine)

Seriously. Local governments cannot end open drug dealing and defecation in homeless “tent cities” that clearly pose a “credible threat.” Join the community? Now you can.

But as I pointed out in frontThe hypocrisy of critics knows no bounds.

But all is not lost for radical Democrats who see the Bill of Rights as more of a nuisance than a squalid homeless encampment. In the Supreme Court's worst decision this term, written by Justice Barrett, the majority ruled that the White House's collaboration with social media companies to censor COVID “misinformation” (much of which turned out to be more accurate than government statements) failed to prove injury to plaintiffs.

Yeah…so does everyone else.

And yet the relentless attacks on Justices Kavanaugh, Alito and Thomas continue unabated. Partial victories, compromises, and concessions to our constitutional republic are not enough. The mob wants it all.
