But they keep getting stopped by that pesky Supreme Court, which has maintained a conservative majority since the Reagan Administration. No, it has not overturned Roe v. Wade, but it has been the only thing putting the brakes on all kinds of other left-wing power grabs.
When Antonin Scalia died in 2016, the left thought it’s dreams had finally come true. Barack Obama would appoint a liberal replacement to shift the balance on the court from right to left, and there would now be no stopping the Democrats’ power grabs. The last thing they ever thought would happen was that a) Garland would not be confirmed; b) Donald Trump would be elected; and c) Trump would not only appoint a solid conservative replacement for Scalia, but would be able to name a solid conservative to replace Anthony Kennedy as well.
Within two years, the left’s dream of Supreme Court domination turned into a nightmare scenario in which conservatives could continue to dominate the Court for another generation. And the Democrats’ dreams of expanding federal power under their direction are going up in flames once again.
That is why they were willing to stop to any depth, no matter how low, to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed. And that is why it’s so important that their efforts were thwarted. This was never about sexual assault or anything of the sort. It was about exploding the power of the federal government way beyond what the Constitution permits, and not having to deal with a Supreme Court that still follows the Constitution.
Congratulations, Justice Kavanaugh. And watch your back. The people who just failed to destroy you crave power every bit as much today as they did yesterday.
