California Senator Kamala Harris (D) loves to be in the spotlight.
During the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, Harris, along with Cory “I am Spartacus” Booker and other Democrats, attempted to corner the nominee. After questioning him, the senator even took to social media and pushed a misleading video which had been edited to make it appear as if the judge described all contraception as “abortion-inducing drugs.”
Remember, the “right” to kill unborn children is a sacrament to the Left.
On Sunday, the senator took to social media and lauded the overturning of Supreme Court precedent thus inadvertently dismissing the idea of “settled law.”
I wouldn’t be part of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings had Chief Justice Warren not been on the Supreme Court to lead the unanimous decision in Brown v. Board. Had someone else been there, I may not have become a U.S. Senator.
I know the impact one Justice can have.

In 1896, the Supreme Court decision in Plessy v Ferguson allowed for state-sponsored segregation. Fifty-eight years later in 1954, the landmark decision in Brown v Board of Education declared segregation to be unconstitutional and overturned the previous decision. The “settled law” had been settled for more than half a century before the necessary ruling in Brown struck down the vile, racist ruling. Definitely a great moment in Supreme Court history.
If you take this to its logical conclusion, overturning precedent is a good and just move when previous decisions are absolute garbage and infringe upon the rights of others as protected by the constitution.
Speaking of decisions that discriminate, I can think of a major one from 1973 that is considered “settled law” by Harris and other pro-aborts. Roe v Wade is forty-five years old and considered to be the “law of the land” by many. But according to Kamala Harris herself, precedent isn’t – and shouldn’t be – safe from judicial review. In fact, when errors are made by courts of previous decades, they should be rectified by current members.
After all, I’m just following what Senator Harris said.
Paramount during the hearings was the desire to protect Roe v Wade at any cost. One of the main strategies by those who support abortion is to rest on this weak idea that once a ruling is made, then it should always stand, unquestioned and untouched.
With Harris’ statement about the obvious virtues of the Brown decision, she voided her own arguments about Roe.
Well done, Kamala.
