Conservative Review: A Supreme Court Firestorm is Brewing

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

In my latest column for Conservative Review, I discussed the political firestorm brewing around the untimely death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Here is a quick preview:

Democrats are eager to replace the conservative Scalia during Obama’s presidency to swing the majority of the Supreme Court to the political left. Republicans, in contrast, are signaling that the new nomination should be from the next president in the hopes the executive branch will then be under Republican control.

Obama, not wasting any time, took to the podium in Rancho Mirage, California, Saturday evening and announced his intention to nominate a replacement for the vacancy. “I plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibilities to nominate a successor in due time. There will be plenty of time for me to do so, and for the Senate to fulfill its responsibility to give that person a fair hearing and a timely vote,” Obama said.

…. The unforeseen death of Justice Antonin Scalia added new tensions between the political parties in an already contentious political environment. With the political philosophy of the Supreme Court hanging in the balance, the amplitude of the political rhetoric between the right and left will reach extreme heights as we approach the elections in the fall.

The question for conservatives is whether establishment Republicans will hold fast to principle or cave under the writhing pressure of the Democratic political and advocacy machine.
