Have you noticed how ramped up liberals are getting about trying to impeach President Trump? It’s all the rage in liberal circles.

From Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer, the elected elite of liberals are all talking about it. They’re salivating over the idea. Drooling…slobbering and nearly peeing themselves at the very thought of impeachment.

It’s nothing new.

Liberals have wanted to impeach every Republican president in the past 40 or so years…but this is different. This time, they’re actually circling like sharks, and they think there’s blood in the water.

Why all the excess fervor now? They know there’s no real chance of it…liberals don’t control the Senate, and without 2/3 of the Senate, they can’t impeach anybody.

So…why now…why all the hype and baring of teeth now?

Our Greatest Domestic Threat is Now an Open Seat

Suddenly, with the death of Justice Scalia, the appointment of a ninth Justice to the Supreme Court has takesup 1n on more weight than most would have previously believed necessary in this, an election year.

Just as weighty as the decision as to who should nominate our next Supreme Court Justice is how any nominee will view Constitutional theory or how that person will interpret the Constitution.

Along those lines, there are five basic theories of Constitutional interpretation. Generally, those theories are as follows: (1) the text and structure of the Constitution, (2) intentions of those who drafted, voted to propose, or voted to ratify the provision in question, (3) prior precedents (usually judicial), (4) the social, political, and economic consequences of alternative interpretations, and (5) natural law. There is general agreement that the first three of these sources are appropriate guides to interpretation, but considerable disagreement as to the relative weight that should be given to the three sources when they point in different directions. Many interpreters of the Constitution have suggested that the consequences of alternative interpretations are never relevant, even when all other considerations are evenly balanced. Natural law (higher law, God’s law) is now only infrequently suggested as an interpretive guide, even though many of the framers of the Constitution recognized its appropriateness. Persons who favor heavy reliance on originalist sources (text and intentions) are commonly called “originalists.” Persons who favor giving a more substantial weighting to precedent, consequences, or natural law are called “non-originalists.” In practice, disagreement between originalists and non-originalists often concerns whether to apply heightened judicial scrutiny to certain “fundamental rights” that are not explicitly protected in the text of the Constitution.
