Here’s what’s “unprecedented”: a sitting President firing warning shots at the Supreme Court
So this is where we are as a country: It’s now “judicial activism” to rule in accordance with the Constitution, while judicial restraint gets redefined as agreeing to rubber-stamp the legislative will of Democrat super majorities, even if what they rush into law is clearly unconstitutional — and creates subjects where free citizens with unalienable rights once existed.
So says our would-be tyrant, who views any rebuke to his claims to power as illegitimate (and likely racist, to boot).
Up is down. Black is white. Chico is The Man.
The constant and steady perversion of language and meaning has finally brought us to the surreal endpoint where a president stands before the public and pretends that a Supreme Court ruling is illegitimate if it looks to the Constitution for guidance on checks to federal power. And the truth is? That’s exactly what they think, too – provided it isn’t a Republican measure SCOTUS is disallowing, of course. What good is anti-foundationalism, after all, if you can’t use it to your advantage?
God help us.
