Hmmm. We heard for years from conservatives how they HATED "activist judges", yet in recent years, we've seen abysmally bad legal decisions by conservative judges (not just the one by Judge Kacsmaryk, but also the terrible decision by the Supreme Court in Dobbs, not to mention the asinine decisions by Trump-appointed judges Kathryn Mizelle, U.S.D.J. (ending the federal mask mandate on planes and in airports), and Aileen Cannon, U.S.D.J. (interjecting herself into case of Trump's absconding with classified documents from the White House)). Conservatives are overjoyed with those decisions.

Huh. It's almost like what really upset them was that they just disagreed with any decisions that didn't go their way........................

Republicans hate any judicial decision that: 1) promotes democracy; 2) supports voting rights; 3) makes America safer; 4) protects the marginalized; 5) exposes truth; 6) upholds the rule of law; 7) supports the intent and text of the Constitution of the United States of America; and 8) exposes rampant and ubiquitous Republican crime. A partial list.

The judiciary is rapidly driving itself into irrelevancy. I think it’s only a matter of time before a state or the federal government decides these conservative ideological opinions have gone too far, are unenforceable and can simply be ignored. It won’t be the Biden White House but imagine a Gen-X or even millennial president who actually has a vested interest in the future deciding a bunch of unqualified, nut job judges put there by a corrupt criminal president can be ignored. Chaos will ensue but it will be well deserved. The judiciary will have only itself to blame.
