Ep 97 | The Supreme Court Is Supremely Disordered | Guest: Ilya Shapiro Kibbe on Liberty

    • News Commentary

Matt Kibbe is joined by the Cato Institute’s Ilya Shapiro, a legal scholar and author of the new book “Supreme Disorder,” to talk about how and why the Supreme Court has become so relentlessly politicized and dangerously powerful over the years. As the two major political parties engage in an arms race to weaponize the court against each other, we’ve forgotten that the proper role of the judiciary is as a third coequal branch of government, designed to check the other two from running rampant over the Constitution. Instead, we now have a political football that has broad implications for how ordinary Americans are allowed to live their lives.
