RUSH: Two things always happen whenever a conservative is nominated for the Supreme Court.
First: Liberals will go nuclear to destroy the nominee – with lies, smears, innuendo, and their mobs.
Second: Liberals will grill conservative nominees on the legal doctrine of stare decisis. That’s Latin for: “stand on the decisions,” in other words, don’t overturn precedent. Especially if liberal justices decided it.
Well, on Monday the Supreme Court overturned a 40-year-old precedent. In 1979, the court ruled that states could be sued by another state’s court without their consent.
Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the majority opinion overturning Nevada v. Hall. He said the 1979 ruling went against the Constitution’s doctrine of state immunity. Forget stare decisis! The previous ruling was wrong!
Liberals are having a fit. They are “deeply disturbed,” because they say this is a veiled threat that Roe v. Wade will soon be on the chopping block.
Who knows? That might be the case someday. In the meantime, I’ll take liberals being “deeply disturbed” by a Supreme Court ruling – instead of us being “deeply disturbed” any day.
