Nomination of radical Judges: he called it “transformational change.” I call it, just part of SUBVERTING AMERICA!
At a private event last Wednesday, President Obama bragged that he was “remaking the courts.”
And if his nomination of controversial professor Cornelia Pillard had succeeded, he would have taken a major step toward that goal.
Despite her nauseating statements on everything from abstinence to motherhood, the President insisted on nominating Pillard to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the second most important bench in America.
Unlike so many appellate courts, the D.C. Circuit has historically been one of the more balanced benches in the country — a reputation that would certainly be in jeopardy if Pillard had joined.
Fortunately, the U.S. Senate was as shocked by her resume as the rest of us and refused to give her nomination a final vote.
Under Senate rules, it would have taken the consent of 60 members to end debate and move to her confirmation. By a 56-41 vote, Republicans put up a barrier that even the majority party couldn’t overcome.
Pillard, who Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called “considerably outside the mainstream,” raised plenty of eyebrows — even among Democrats — for her wild views on everything from feminism to religion. Said one Senate aid, “I don’t know that there is anyone who has raised more red flags”.
Some of her greatest hits include calling abstinence education “unconstitutional,” ultrasound technology “deceptive,” and women “presumptive breeders.”
NRO’s Ed Whelan and other experts were convinced that if Pillard had been confirmed, she would be “the most left-wing judge in the history of the republic.” Those are strong words for a country that isn’t exactly hurting for activist judges.
But if Pillard’s nomination has taught us anything, it is what’s at stake for America in this overlooked debate.
If the President can’t get the legislature to embrace his big government vision, then he’ll appoint judges to do it for him.
As FRC’s Ken Klukowski points out, “President Obama understands that so much of what he wants to accomplish runs afoul of the historical understanding of the limits on federal power and the proper meaning of the Bill of Rights that he can only achieve that agenda if a critical mass of federal judges agree with his idea that the words of the Constitution can be completely redefined to grant such sweeping and transformational power to the federal government.”
At least for this week, Senate Republicans are saying, “not on our watch.”
