With the appointment of Justice Barrett to the court, the liberal heads are popping like corn and the wildest exaggerations are coming out.
Justice Barrett and the “Originalist” on the court are easy to bypass by the Democrats.
How you might ask?
It is simply by doing their job as representatives of the people. Pass a Law. A law that states it’s intent, states its Purpose and the action to be taken.
Be it enacted, etc., That the Court of Claims shall. notwithstanding the lapse of six years, take jurisdiction of and adjudge the claim of Robert Adger, James Marsh, and the estate of Mitchell King, against the United States for rent, use, and occupation of certain buildings, wharves, warehouses, offices, ship-yard, and docks in the city of Charleston, S.C., since the war, and shall render judgment in favor of said Adger, James Marsh, and the estate of Mitchell King, or their legal representatives, for such amount as shall be found to be the real rental value of the property subsequent to the 29th day of September, in the year 1865, when the President of the United States issued an order for the restoration of the aforesaid property to said claimants, and during its occupancy by the Government after that date.
- Senate Congressional Record 1889
When the Obama Care bill was passed, Pelosi said “We have to pass the Bill to find out what’s in it.” That leaves a lot to interpretation and therefor a question for the courts to decide on the intent of Congress, also the courts had to decide on the Constitutional reasoning for the law. The Courts could do what the Politicians failed to do which was take responsibility for their action.
That is the problem for Democrats.
It is easy to pass a law when you control the House, the Senate, and the Executive, but it is hard to take the consequences for your actions.
If the Democrats cared about immigration and DACA so much, why did they not pass laws when they held all three under Obama? Why was Obama forced to use Imperial Dictates to force the issue?
If the Democrats do their job and take responsibility for their political actions, then there will be little for the Court to do. As long as the actions are constitutional. If they try to suborn the Constitution, then there will be much for the Court to do.
But as personal responsibility is an athame to the Democrats, I doubt that they are capable of passing laws that actually make sense.
Just my thoughts for today
