I’ve been watching snippets of the confirmation hearing of Judge Neil Gorsuch for Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
I love Gorsuch. The man has one of the most brilliant legal minds I have ever seen in action.
I came to Senator Dianne Feinstein’s questioning of Judge Gorshuch. What a clown-show, dumpster fire that was. Let’s look at two clips.
“Super-precedent.” That’s what Roe v. Wade is to her, super-precedent. There is no real legal definition for that that I can find but it is obvious what it means to her. To her, Roe is a HIGER precedent than the rest of the Constitution and can’t be overturned. Personally I don’t think it should be overturned, but I also don’t think that a decision from 1973 is so sacrosanct that it can’t be questioned.
Then we come to this:
What Senator Feinstein was doing was blatant. She was probing him to determine what he thought the limitations of Heller was. What can she propose to ban that he wouldn’t rule against.
She was trying to get him to admit that he’d uphold a ban on weapons most useful for the military. Why? So she can pull some legal fuckery and argue (like she’s done before) that any “assault weapon” is best suited for the military and justify a ban on semi-autos.
She was asking Judge Gorsuch exactly what size boot she is allowed to put on and how hard she can stomp it in the face of the American people before he will stop her.
To see this play out this way is mind blowing.
It is obvious that the Democrats have a very different copy of the Constitution than is enshrined at the National Archives. Their version has a Second Amendment that says “An unregulated abortion is the necessary to the security of a liberated Woman, the right of doctors to keep and bear abortifacient , shall not be infringed.” Your right to keep and bear arms, on the other hand, is limited to what they in their infinite ignorance doesn’t scare them and is completely capricious.
At this point, I am no longer going to argue against Bluexit. The Liberal concept of a Civil Right is fucked. To them, it is the right to stomp on others. Unregulated abortion is the right to murder an unborn child, depriving it of its right to life, for the convenience of the mother. The right to defend yourself, however, is racist and should be banned.
Since Liberals have decided they want a country where they are all running around stomping on each other’s faces in some gladiatorial oppression Olympics, where getting somebody fired for using the wrong pronoun with with you is the height of social achievement, they can take their boot and go. I don’t want to live in that society.
