LOGIC MINUTE
By Lynn Woolley

President Obama will nominate an “independent thinker with a strong intellect and sterling credentials.” That sounds like the late Antonin Scalia himself.

But Obama was no fan of Scalia’s.

Therefore we looked deeper into this post from Obama published on SCOTUSblog.

We found this quote:

“…the third quality I see in a judge is a keen understanding that justice is not about abstract legal theory, not some footnote in a dusty casebook. It’s the kind of life experience earned outside the classroom and the courtroom.”

Obama is saying that he wants a nominee that’s likely been discriminated against, so that person can dispense “justice” [or SOCIAL JUSTICE] from the bench. But the Supreme Court is not about justice. It’s about the Constitution and the rule of law. That’s why Republicans are right not to allow his nominee a hearing.

The Justice League of America is about justice. The Supreme Court is not.

Obama seems to view the High Court as a sort of “Super Legislature” that can be used to force his personal brand of justice regardless of law. Understand that the presidency (executive) and the Congress (legislative) are free to pursue “justice” all they want. The Supreme Court is not. The Supreme Court is supposed to be above it.

To get an idea of what I mean, simply look at four people: His two Attorney General selections – and his two successful nominees to the Supreme Court.

Obama’s Attorneys General.

Eric Holder famously said America is a national of racial cowards. He was all about justice. Conservatives despised him.

Loretta Lynch is another purely political appointee, and is now considered to be a strong frontrunner to get Obama’s nod for the Supreme Court.

Note that the Justice Department allowed the Internal Revenue Service to freely discriminate against Tea Parties and other conservative groups based on tax status. Lois Lerner, who took the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination, was allowed to go free after ramrodding the anti-conservative bias. This is “justice” to Barack Obama.

Obama’s Supreme Court nominees.

Both Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan were diversity picks. Both are far left liberals. Both are “safe” votes for progressive viewpoints on the High Court. Both of Obama’s picks have affirmed virtually everything Obama has wanted including the oh-so-obvious unconstitutional Affordable Care Act – known pejoratively as “Obamacare.”

The Supreme Court has two excellent justices – Thomas and Alito.

It needs more Antonin Scalias – people that will look at the wording and the original intent of the Framers of the Constitution –and will enforce laws as they are written. Under the doctrine of “Judicial Review,” the Court could send a law back to Congress for a rewrite – but could not actually make law as they did in Roe v. Wade and as Chief Justice John Roberts did with Obamacare.

Scalia was an “originalist” meaning that he would vote against his own ideology if he thought the Constitution demanded it. If all 9 justices would do as Scalia did – that is, keep their own personal ideology out of it – we’d get mostly 9 to nothing rulings.

The Framers did not want the Supreme Court to be a Super Legislature. They created it as the one non-political branch of government. Obama – the Constitutional Law Professor” does not understand that. Or he doesn’t care.
