For most of my life, I’ve watched the Democratic Party use the US courts brilliantly.
Liberals like to litigate and conservatives hate to litigate — and this had become a national issue.
The Democrats and the Democratic Party, in general, just have better lawyers.
They pay them more, build institutional systems to feed them fees, set up bureaucratic systems that employ them — and as a result about 90% of the public policy lawyers in the US today are liberal.
I’m not suggesting anything to fix this, that would just make the problem worse, but this recent first amendment situation (see 1984 is finally here) with Twitter and Facebook reminds me that the ACLU, which used to defend my civil liberties — has abandoned that cause, and no credible conservative substitute has emerged.
Judicial Watch is the only thing going and their work may one day be looked back on as the single legal thread that uncovered a vast constitutional conspiracy carried out by Hillary Clinton over the course of at least 10 years, beginning with her decisions as Secretary of State and following all the way through her illegal election tampering against Bernie Sanders with the DNC contract to her creation of the Steele Dossier, a document that will tarnish the name of the FBI for a generation.
Judicial Watch is a godsend and they need to be supported enthusiastically by every American concerned that the courts and the governmental bureaucracy are no longer the friend of traditional civil rights — which are threatened by these new supposed “rights” which apparently include the right to silence others.
This is the Progressive movement today, we used to call this communism when Ronald Reagan (God bless him) was president.
But Judicial Watch is not enough. We need the ACLU to return to their former mission. And a few more, good, Republican lawyers wouldn’t hurt either.
