Judge Roy Moore Announces Alabama Senate Bid

Moore plans to run for U.S. Senate again in 2020.

Former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy S. Moore announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate in 2020 Thursday afternoon.

Moore bashed the National Republican Senate Committee for publicly opposing him before he even announced his candidacy, and rhetorically asked why the entire Republican establishment in Washington, D.C. was fighting against him. He implied that Republicans in Washington oppose him because he is a staunch conservative who will fight the establishment.

Moore’s 2017 bid for U.S. Senate against Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) was derailed by still-unproven allegations of sexual misconduct. Moore has sued his accuser, resulting in a legal battle that has been dragged out by the defense, in hopes of marring Moore’s 2020 candidacy. Moore’s campaign was also sabotaged by an operation now known as “Project Birmingham,” during which a technology firm called New Knowledge planted “Russian bots” to follow Moore’s official Twitter account before its founder publicly accused Moore of being a Russian stooge.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

on

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
