Miguel Estrada writes

Miguel Estrada was the brilliant conservative lawyer that the Hispanic-friendly Democrats in the Senate filibustered after President Bush nominated him to the D.C. Appeals court early in his first term out of fear that he would later be on the short list for any Supreme Court vacancy.

Democrats succeeded. But thankfully Estrada is not constrained by federal court rules against voicing his opinion of what is happening in his native Honduras and the Obama administration’s response. Here is a short note from Estrada (via the Corner):

Yes, obviously the way to stand up for the rule of law is to punish the judge who signed the arrest warrant—before the supposed coup—by revoking his visa. Because, you know, we as a country must think it a terrible thing when judges enforce the law against the executive branch. (If only Jefferson had thought of this!) And punish the members of the country's congress, too, while you are at it, even though no one could reasonably dispute their democratic credentials. This is the same Congress that was elected before the "coup." This petty retaliation is as shameful as it is pointless.

Obama’s behavior towards Honduras has been odious.


Actually, no serious person is sure what the conservative majority will do here. That's common in these politically charged cases. Meanwhile, literally nobody doubts what the *Democrat-appointed* justices will do. So who is "deeply partisan" again? https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/12/01/supreme-court-abortion-argument-roe-dead/

Doing some research and checked out @TheDispatchFC front page. It turns out the answer to every single one of these is "No." But one doesn't have that simple explanation on the main page. Why?
