Judicial Activism Takes a Hit

Broadcast Running Time: 01:19:30

The Supreme Court is supposed to determine the constitutionality of laws, not give people what they want. John opens the show this week looking at some of the recent Supreme Court decisions – namely the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade – and gives a history of judicial activism. The crazy narratives that have been pushed for so many years have now hit reality and the pendulum is starting to swing the other way. People are beginning to see through the Marxist ideology and post-modern thinking that saturates our society today.

An example of a narrative that is still firmly entrenched, at least in California, is that of environmental activism and the state's policy on water. Joining us is Edward Ring (edwardring.com), Senior Fellow at the Center for American Greatness. These activists are adamant that no desalination plants be built in California, even though the process would help the state's water issues. He debunks the 'bad for the environment' talking points and shows how California has become a defacto communist state of crushing bureaucracy.

Finally this week, we look to Ukraine since there's still a war going on there. Reuben Johnson, our Ukraine expert, is back with us to give updates on how ineffective the Russian military has been, mostly from poor leadership. He also addresses rumors about Vladimir Putin's health and comments on the recent attack on a Ukraine shopping center.

The Supreme Court has ruled on a number of cases lately, including the Dobbs case that overruled Roe v. Wade, and most of these decisions have adhered to the Constitution. This has made the judicial activist crowd quite mad. John flies solo today taking a look at some of these cases, examining the history of judicial activism in the court and how narratives that weren't based in reality are losing water and the pendulum of truth is swinging the other way. How did it get so bad originally? Marxism in the schools and post-modernist thought in society today.

Roe v Wade was overturned on Friday and predictably the reaction from the pro-abortion crowd was to rant and rave and riot. Producer Steve flies solo today and examines a number of issues, including judicial activism then and now, the talking points from the Left after the ruling on Friday, violence over the weekend, and the trigger laws going into effect in some states now. He also looks at what the Left may do moving forward and why courts are a more attractive venue to push liberal agendas than legislatures.
