For John, BLUF: A lot of inflammatory rhetoric, but not a lot of clarity of thinking regarding both Justice Kavanaugh or the Supreme Court as a whole. Nothing to see here; just move along.
InstaPundit commentary, by Mr David Bernstein, 9 October 2018.
Here is what a "radical right" Supreme Courtwould bring us:
- Ban abortion nationwide as a violation of the right to life protected by the due process clause;
- Rule that publicly-provided (but not funded) education is unconstitutional because it inherently involves viewpoint discrimination by the government, or at least require vouchers for those who object to the public school curriculum;
- Overrule an 1898 precedent and completely abolish birthright citizenship;
- Use the First Amendment as a sword to require “fairness” in the left-dominated media.
This is very unlikely, even if RBG were to be replaced by a clone of Justice Kavanaugh.
