Commentaries

Chuck Colson
A constitutional travesty

“The Constitution could not be clearer. The nomination is made by the president alone. The Senate is to give its advice and consent—not demand ideological purity.”


Thomas Sowell
Disinformation on judges

“This is not about two people being nominated to be federal judges. It is about the whole role of judges in a self-governing republic. The voters' votes mean less and less as time goes by, when judges take more and more decisions out of the hands of elected officials and substitute their own policy preferences, all under the guise of ‘interpreting’ laws.”


Phyllis Schlafly
Liberals rally around judicial supremacy

“The judicial supremacists are just plain wrong when they assert that the rule of law requires the U.S. Supreme Court to be accepted as the final arbiter of constitutional questions. They are actually demanding that the rule of judges replace the rule of law.”


Paul Greenberg
The war on religion

“Back in the Furious Fifties, those defending the political status quo relied heavily on the filibuster, too, and they, too, objected to preachers sticking their noses into politics and getting folks all riled up. Back then, it was the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and his Southern Christian Leadership Conference (talk about mixing politics and religion!) that was causing all the trouble, and stirring folks up for no good reason.”
