LIBERAL ANTICS HIGHLIGHT CRITICALITY
OF ALITO CONFIRMATION
By Christopher G. Adamo
Several legal battles unfolding throughout the nation, while at present not directly tied to the U.S. Supreme Court, nonetheless provide evidence of a major breakdown in the nation’s legal system. Right or wrong, the precedent has been established by which the Supreme Court is widely assumed to be the final arbiter of such cases.
Thus, if true justice is ever to be re-established in America, the ultimate responsibility for doing so will rest upon the nine justices of the Supreme Court. Those on the Left, with a clear, vested interest in maintaining the “status quo,” have no intention of allowing the system to revert to its former, constitutionally proper role. Current news items involving the machinations of the legal system, albeit at lower levels, should be sufficient to make this case in the minds of the American people.
In Florida, radio talk show giant Rush Limbaugh has just won a major court victory in an ongoing battle against the state’s inarguably politically motivated Democratic State Attorney, Barry Krischer. According to a decision handed down on Monday, December 12, by District Court Judge David Crow, Limbaugh’s medical records are indeed a matter of confidentiality between himself and his doctor.
“Fishing expeditions” by state prosecutors are not permitted as a means of finding evidence of ostensible wrongdoing, categorized as “doctor shopping,” by Limbaugh. Yet the situation begs the question of just how a prosecution of this sort could have advanced as far as it did. Certainly, the common citizen should be protected from this sort of personal attack.
Meanwhile in Texas, obvious efforts at “grand jury shopping” by Travis County Prosecutor Ronnie Earle, in hopes of railroading Republican Congressman Tom Delay, are themselves falling apart. After a half-dozen attempts to find a grand jury that would indict Delay for something -- anything -- Earle finally succeeded. Delay was charged with “Conspiracy to Violate Texas Election Code” and “Money Laundering.”
Judge Pat Priest has now dismissed the “Conspiracy” charge, essentially contending that its imposition on the Congressman was, from the beginning, bogus. Nevertheless, Delay lingers under indictment for the remaining charge.
Once again, “justice” and ethics play no part in this unfolding melodrama. Instead, the entire situation proves that Earle represents not a legal system dedicated to public integrity, but rather one that has degenerated into a weapon, which those with power can wield against their political opponents.
And, of course, at this festive season of the year, news stories abound in which the Christian foundations of the Christmas Holiday (a virtual redundancy in terms) are systematically being expunged from public discourse. Americans are once again reminded of those looming threats to their freedom and heritage posed by such organizations as the ACLU, as it pursues nothing less than to suppress, and eventually criminalize “politically incorrect” expressions and speech.
In the midst of such tempests, Samuel Alito may represent a return to saner and more traditional jurisprudence. Like Roberts, his judicial philosophy is one of deference to the United States Constitution as an absolute standard. And as such, he represents the worst nightmares of Leftwing Liberals who hope to see their agenda set in concrete by a high court that recognizes no constitutional limits to its power.
Senator Russ Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat, has not ruled out a filibuster of Alito. And Pennsylvania “Republican” Arlen Specter has expressed similar sentiments in past weeks, specifically pointing to the possibility that Alito might not regard abortion as sacrosanct in American law.
In truth, the question that Liberal Leftist Senators would like to ask Alito (though none dare do so publicly) is, if confirmed by the U.S. Senate, whether his ultimate loyalty would be to the United States Constitution, or to Roe v. Wade.
While Alito’s critics are ostensibly concerned about the ongoing legality of abortion, in reality they fear far more. If his belief in the U.S. Constitution is as steadfast as present signs indicate, much of the Leftwing Liberal agenda will, henceforth, be relegated to the ballot box, where it ever after stands no chance of implementation. A compliant Supreme Court is Liberalism’s best hope for continued political dominance.
