Democrats just got a resounding defeat that will set them back decades.
And it couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
Hillary Clinton flew into a rage when she heard these eight words.
The Supreme Court is in some ways more powerful than the Presidency and Congress because the Supreme Court has the power to overrule them.
It also has the power to force states to follow laws that their own legislature wouldn’t have passed.
Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination has made the Supreme Court far more solidly conservative than it was before.
While the Supreme Court was theoretically conservative before, Chief Justice John Roberts voted with liberals in a number of key cases last year.
Having Judge Barrett on the bench instead of Ruth Bader Ginsburg changes the dynamics of the court considerably and the Supreme Court is far more likely to limit the federal government to the powers outlined in the Constitution.
“I interpret the Constitution as a law,” Barrett patiently explained to the Senate during her confirmation hearing, “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.”
Democrats have tried to find justification for their hatred of Barrett but it really boils down to the fact that they don’t want to be limited by the Constitution.
Clinton attacked Barrett, saying “At the time the Constitution was ratified, women couldn’t vote, much less be judges.”
Then Democrats tried to pivot and say that they were just concerned that Barrett would take away Americans’ healthcare.
“Senate Republicans just pushed through a Supreme Court justice who will help them take away Americans’ health care in the middle of a pandemic,” Clinton posted on Twitter.
But none of the Democrats’ anger stopped Judge Barrett from being confirmed on failed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton’s, birthday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell noted that Barrett’s confirmation could even be considered a “birthday present.”
“It was a wonderful birthday present for Hillary Clinton to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday night on her birthday,” McConnell told supporters on Wednesday during a campaign stop in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, according to the New York Post. “Oh, I’m sure she was so grateful, so grateful.”
During the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton tweeted on her birthday, “Happy birthday to this future president” with a picture of herself as a young girl.
The Democrats have an attitude that they should win every political victory but when the American people chose Trump as President in 2016 and a Republican Senate, they showed that they don’t want Democrats to have insurmountable power.
