Donald Trump bet his legacy on the Supreme Court.
There is one major case Trump needs to go his way.
And Donald Trump will be grinning from ear to ear over this prediction about the Supreme Court in the next election.
Donald Trump’s presidential legacy will center in large part on the three justices he appointed to the Supreme Court.
On December 1, 2021, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which the court will hear an appeal over Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks, with the sole exception being to protect the life of the mother.
That timing means the judges will hand down their ruling about four months before the 2022 midterms.
Dobbs is the most direct challenge to Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey – the two cases that imposed the horror of abortion on demand in America – in a generation.
Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton spoke to the University Club of Washington, D.C. and his remarks touched on what is seen as the biggest Supreme Court case since the Obamacare decision in 2012.
Cotton argued that justices would only vote to uphold Roe because of pressure from their peer group of highly educated journalists, academics, and fellow lawyers.
“The only thing standing in the way of justices doing the right thing is the intense social pressure of liberal elites,” Cotton stated.
“Now is the time for true friends of the Constitution to speak up,” Cotton added.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Cotton argued that the Supreme Court catered to the same liberal set of highly educated credentialed elites because that is the pool presidents of both parties routinely select Supreme Court nominees from.
But Cotton predicted that since the majority of justices on the Supreme Court were of the originalist bent, the conservative majority would reject this “in-group” pressure campaign to defend abortion on demand and instead strike down Roe.
“The Court’s abortion precedents, Cotton said, reflect a tendency of past courts to cater to the values of an in-group of professors, advocacy organizations, and well-paid lawyers who can influence judicial business. Today, he added, a majority of justices purport to be committed textualists and originalists, and he expects that a straightforward application of those methods will lead the court to overturn Roe,” the Free Beacon reported.
There is something called the “Greenhouse Effect” named after radical left-wing New York Times Supreme Court reporter Linda Greenhouse.
Year after year, conservatives watch as Republican-appointed justices vote with the left to appease Greenhouse, so she will write glowing pieces about how they “grew” – i.e., moved to the left – in the Times, which is read by all justices’ liberal high-status social circle.
Chief Justice John Roberts is the embodiment of this phenomenon.
Roberts has three times invented new law to uphold Obamacare, voted to grant transgenders special rights, struck down a Louisiana pro-life law, upheld Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal alien children, and struck down the Trump administration’s attempt to put a question on the 2020 census asking about citizenship.
But Cotton and other conservatives believe victory is within their grasp on Dobbs because there are five other Republican-appointed justices, and the Roberts’ vote is not determinative of the outcome.
If Trump’s Supreme Court nominees overturn Roe v. Wade ahead of the midterms that will be a powerful selling point for Trump to campaign on in 2024 should he mount a third bid for the White House.
