Lowry: The Only Red Flags Around Alito Are The Ones Democrats Are Raising

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has come under fire recently for two incidents involving flags flown at his home. In the first incident, Alito allegedly flew an American flag upside down as part of a protest with a neighbor; in the second, Alito flew a Revolutionary War-era “Appeal to Heaven” flag, which some interpret as a signal of support for Donald Trump. National Review editor-in-chief Rich Lowry says this flag flap is just a distraction. Speaking on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program, Lowry says this kerfuffle is really a Democratic attempt to soften up the judicial branch of the government.

As Lowry theorized for Berman and Riedel, “I think the point though, here, is to tear down respect for the Supreme Court, to delegitimize it, in the hopes that eventually the Democrats have enough power in Washington- I doubt they’ll ever get it, but if they did- to pack the Supreme Court. That’s clearly the play here. Now, they need sixty Senate votes, and when are they ever going to get that? So, it’s hard to imagine, or maybe they can eliminate the filibuster and do it, but that’s the goal. They don’t like the results from the court anymore, so the court must be destroyed, is the thinking.”

Meanwhile, Lowry feels Democrats have a bigger plan up their sleeve: a third impeachment if Trump wins the presidency and they win the House. “Oh, they’ll definitely impeach him; they’ll impeach him for getting elected. The third impeachment’s a guarantee… and this will be a very depressing prospect, because all they’ll do is kind of last-minute spending deals and otherwise, nothing else will happen in that scenario, except for the impeachment.”
