Democrats’ worst fear could be coming true in just a matter of days.
And Clinton is facing a loss that’s almost as bitter as when she lost the presidency.
Hillary Clinton flew into a fit of rage when she found out her birthday surprise.
While the presidential election on November 3rd is important, there is another vote coming up that could shape America for decades to come.
The Senate will vote on whether to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett onto the Supreme Court.
Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is no fan of Judge Barrett because Barrett believes in originalism.
“In English, that means that I interpret the Constitution as a law,” Barrett patiently explained to the Senate, “and that I interpret its text as text, and I understand it to have the meaning that it had at the time people ratified it. So that meaning doesn’t change over time and it’s not up to me to update it or infuse my own policy views into it.”
Clinton made an uninformed attack, saying, “At the time the Constitution was ratified, women couldn’t vote, much less be judges.”
But originalists believe that amendments are part of the Constitution, but that the Supreme Court can’t change the meaning of the Constitution by reading their own political agenda into it.
“Dear HRC staffers: originalists don’t believe the Constitution should never change; they just realize it’s the job not of judges but of citizens through their legislators to make those changes. See, for example, the 19th amendment,” Justice Antonin Scalia’s son Christopher Scalia tweeted.
The Founding Fathers didn’t believe that the Constitution was perfect and so they made a process by which the Constitution could be changed.
But for decades now the Democrats have been using the Supreme Court in order to legislate law into being.
With Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decided that abortion was a constitutional right even though the Constitution never dealt with abortion and up until that point was dealt with on a state level.
Hillary Clinton doesn’t want the Supreme Court to be conservative because it will limit the power of the federal government.
That’s why Clinton was devastated to learn that the Senate vote to confirm Barrett will be held on Monday, October 26th, which coincidentally happens to be Clinton’s birthday.
Democrats are doing everything within their power to stall the confirmation vote.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee would boycott the Thursday vote that will send the nomination to the Senate for final confirmation.
But this is mostly just theatrical posturing on the part of Democrats and won’t make a difference in the final outcome.
