Federal Judges Protect and Defend Precedent

“A nominee for a seat on a U.S. Court of Appeals revealed exactly why we can’t count on federal judges to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution. Their commitment is to protect and defend past court precedent. … Even the ‘right’ federal judges aren’t going to uphold the Constitution and protect your rights. They uphold precedent — most of it bad. The system as it exists rejects the Constitution as ratified and rests on the opinions of past opinions propagated by other politically connected lawyers. It is set up to protect and expand the powers of government. Your rights aren’t really part of the equation.” (10/05/21)
