9-0 Decision Shows How Far Removed Democrat Lawfare And Its Media Cheerleaders Are From Reality

If you think the only explanation for a 9-0 Supreme Court decision in Trump’s favor is because Sonia Sotomayor is a MAGA extremist, you might need to touch grass.

When a unanimous Supreme Court struck down their efforts to boot a former president from the ballot, Democrats and NeverTrumpers in media and elsewhere could have stepped back, reevaluated their position, and realized that maybe they’re the ones who are out of touch. Instead, they doubled down — and their meltdowns decrying even the court’s left-most justices as pro-Trump extremists confirm that they’ve completely lost their grip on reality.

Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann was one of many who threw a tantrum, accusing the court and its “political whores” of having “betrayed democracy” and insisting that “it must be dissolved.”

Leftist activist Elie Mystal took to X to call for the court to be “stopped” before suggesting that progressive Justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ketanji Brown Jackson might have been “bullied” into concurring and that the entire bench was “just making sh-t up as they go along, with their only North Star being: PROTECT TRUMP AT ALL COSTS.”

To be fair, the liberal trio issued a concurrence in which they all but admitted they had hoped there was another pathway that the deep state could prevent Trump from appearing on the ballot.

But sure, Sotomayor, Kagan, and Jackson are secretly the bench’s biggest MAGA fans.

“LOLZ at the ridiculous notion that a written constitution is an effective check on tyrannical government!” Senior Vox correspondent Ian Millhiser posted to X.

Faux Republican David French responded to the ruling by arguing that the court got it wrong and he — a New York Times columnist — got it right.

French previously argued that “the case for disqualifying Trump is strong.”

But instead of pulling his hat down and slipping into the shadows of defeat, French emerged victorious — if you’re using Nikki Haley’s definition of “victorious” — and declared the high court “just erased part of the Constitution” by its decision to, well, follow the Constitution.

Unanimous Ruling Makes Court-Packing Push Look Pretty Silly

Olbermann responded to a decision he didn’t like by calling for the court’s destruction, in an attack that’s reminiscent of earlier cries to pack the court by his left-wing buddies. But when you have to include the left-leaning Obama and Biden appointees in your ad hominems about a “right-wing” court, it’s even harder to take your whining seriously.

The “get Trump” crowd hinged their political hopes on convincing the country that removing Trump under the 14th Amendment was sound political judgment. And when the justices unanimously ruled against Colorado’s flimsy argument, they reverted to temper tantrums.

Court-packing proponents pretended the only reason they weren’t getting their way was simply because there were too many Republican-appointed justices on the court, and not, you know, the Constitution. But the unanimous ruling Monday put a damper on that thought process, and should have laid to bed any fears that this was based in politic rather than law. Justice Amy Coney Barrett touched on that point in her sole concurrence, noting that “For present purposes, our differences are far less important than our unanimity.”

“All nine justices agree on the outcome of this case,” she added.

But the leftists having public meltdowns online are so divorced from reality that they were unable to separate their personal hatred of Trump from the rule of law, even as it stared them in the face.

SCOTUS Is Designed to Follow the Constitution, Not Political Whims

“The Judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power,” Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 78. “The judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them.”

Hamilton goes on to explain that the judiciary, unlike the other two branches of government, “can take no active resolution” and has “merely judgment.”

The Supreme Courts’ weakness is perhaps its biggest strength.

Unlike the executive or legislative branches of government, which by design are meant to sway to the political affections of the times, the court is simply meant to adjudicate the “fundamental” laws of the land, aka the Constitution.

But left-wing pundits lack the intellectual bandwidth to understand that a court ruling based on the Constitution — with even Sotomayor, Kagan, and Jackson putting aside their obvious political affinities to do so — is a court that is doing its job properly. And if you think the only explanation for a 9-0 Supreme Court decision in Trump’s favor is because Sonia Sotomayor is a MAGA extremist, you might need to touch grass.
