Hugh Hewitt: Chief Justice Warren Burger: 50 Years Later

We’ve just past the 50th anniversary of the appointment by Richard Nixon of Warren Burger as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court—June 23, 2019. Among the reflections and assessments was a comprehensive look by Professor Jeffrey Morris—available at NixonFoundation.org.

Chief Justice Burger did not turn out to be a predictable friend or foe of the man who put him on the bench. He’s actually remembered most fondly by Court historians not for any particular opinion, but for his Herculean efforts to modernize a creaky administrative structure of the federal courts and to repair relations between state and federal judiciaries.

Burger did not achieve the fame of Earl Warren, or the centrality to the Court’s decision making of the current Chief Justice John Roberts.

More vacancies could arrive soon on the Supreme Court. Each matters as much as the rest, for while a Chief Justice usually names an era, he (or in the future, she) does not define it.

Jerry Bowyer: A Critical Win at the High Court

The Supreme Court has decided that a cross memorializing the fallen of WWI can remain.

As important as the ruling is, the count might be even more so. The court voting 7-2—with Sotomayor and the aging Ruth Bader Ginsburg voting against allowing the stone monument in Maryland to remain.

Let’s be clear: Writing for the majority, Justice Alito argued that tearing down this cross would not be an act of religious neutrality, it would be an act of anti-religious destruction.

No sensible person thinks for a moment that allowing that cross to stand is an endorsement of Christianity. It was a beautiful tribute honoring the service and sacrifice of the fallen.

Justice Ginsburg has become a left-wing folk hero of sorts. She wanted to tear down a cross which the mothers of the fallen erected a century ago.

Thank goodness her voice was in the minority opinion.

Albert Mohler: Justice Thomas Weighs in Abortion

The big news coming out of the Supreme Court on abortion had as much or more to do with a decision that they let stand as much as the decision that they overturned.

The Court decided not to take up the question on appeal of an Indiana law that made abortion illegal if it were sought merely for reasons of sex selection or disability.

We should pay very close attention to the brilliant concurring opinion of Justice Thomas.

He made very clear that this issue will be back.

In his words, “The Court’s decision to allow further percolation should not be interpreted as agreement with the decisions. Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement.”

In other words, Justice Thomas said, “The issue will come back to the court. It must come back to the court.”
