Politico: The Supreme Court and The End of the Democratic Century

I made a similar argument here.

Politico:

“It’s not clear where historians will ultimately draw the line, but one could make a good case that the loomingDobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision marks the end of a Democratic century. The moral arc of the universe may have seemed like it was bending toward a liberal vision of the social world, but in fact much of that vision — including the New Deal and the Warren Court — was something of an historical anomaly, created by chance.

The judicial branch is a lagging indicator of party power, with lifetime-appointed jurists remaining powerful long after the president who nominated them has left office. Much of what’s happened within the judiciary over the past century has been an echo of a period of electoral dominance by the Democrats.

That period arguably began in October 1929, when the stock market crashed and the economy tumbled into a brutal, decade-long Depression while a Republican was in the White House. Up until that point, Republicans had been enjoying decades of national dominance in the wake of the Civil War.

The Great Depression lived up to its name. In the election year of 1932 alone, the U.S. economy lost a quarter of its value. Unsurprisingly, Democrats, under the banner of Franklin Roosevelt, won big that year. Roosevelt took 42 of 48 states, and Democrats picked up nearly 100 seats in the House and 12 in the Senate. An economic rally in 1936 helped produce another big win for Democrats that year. Further economic progress and fears of war garnered a third win for Roosevelt in 1940, and satisfaction with the war’s progress brought a fourth in 1944. Harry Truman’s come-from-behind victory in 1948 secured five consecutive terms — 20 years — of Democratic control of the White House, and Democrats held the Congress for 18 of those. …”

Yep.

We may have rounded the corner.

    • No…they losing control. This is the cause of all madness. Article is right, this is the end of Democratic Century. Juri Slezkine wrote even book about that as early as 2004. The book was named The Jewish Century .

      Difficult read but very covered and read between the lines central thesis is that “what brought us here doesn’t take us forward ” and this means that century old Jew Big Lie and deception will be ineffective in digital information society.

      Trump proved that and won. Social media triumphed Big Lie and defamation campaign. Big Lie was Jew Helms Deep what have never fallen. When it falls, nobody knows what to do. Current panic is also not about abortion. They panicking because their historical weapon can not defend them anymore.

  1. Ya Think? White Nationalists have been sure of everything for 60 Years.

    Once again, Have and Nurture White Children. Opponents of this arre Anti-White IMO

    No one cares what you think about Abortion.

    A group of “Men” who got us into this Mess.

  2. “In the election year of 1932 alone, the U.S. economy lost a quarter of its value”:

    At the present inflation rate of at least 30%, the majority of the U.S.’s homeland population have already lost more than a quarter of their “economic value.” But the System has gotten much better at managing the perceptions of the population than it was during the Red Decade (1930s). The U.S. population of the twenty-first century has been so atomized and brainwashed that they hardly know they are being robbed and exploited. Lacking any consciousness of class they cannot organize to oppose, resist and overthrow the system.

  3. “The moral arc of the universe may have seemed like it was bending toward a liberal vision of the social world, but in fact much of that vision — including the New Deal and the Warren Court — was something of an historical anomaly, created by chance”:

    Nonsense. The New Deal “anomaly” was just populist reformism, designed to preserve/conserve the U.sury S.ystem in a difficult time (one of its many crashes combined with the socialist threat of the Red Decade). Nothing really changes as long as the system remains. As soon as it gets the chance, the reforms are all gone and the system doubles down on the exploitation.
