Who IS Leonard Leo? .. i didn't know until the Chris Wallace interview segment on tv just a few minutes ago. It was a little surprising to me that Wallace was apparently impressed with Leo's 'originalism' core and his influence on SCOTUS nominees. I also thought it odd that it would be Wallace as my source of learning about Leo. But - allowing for some personal perspective = now that I've done some initial research, apparently the progressives have been ramping up Leo's name recognition for awhile now. Which usually means he will soon be the target of the progressives' MSM character assassination machine. But on the other hand, with a little more research I see Breitbart did an article last month and it appears each summer is viewed as the season of SCOTUS justices announcing retirement and he's been acknowledged kinda regularly about this time of the year, so it's more likely I'm just late in paying enough attention to know who he is, not too unusual really.
So, who is he? Here's the WIKI link and beginning text;
Leonard A. Leo is an American lawyer and conservative activist who currently serves as executive vice president of the Federalist Society.
Leo has led campaigns to support the Supreme Court nominations of John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. In 2017, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin wrote that Leo was "responsible, to a considerable extent, for one third of the justices on the Supreme Court." Leo described himself in 2019 as "a leader of the conservative legal movement."
Probably what I liked about Leo within the tv interview segment was his laser focus on originalism, interpreting words within the constitution as they were commonly understood when it was written. Granted though, in the past his lists of recommended 'originalist' potential SCOTUS nominees has included Justice Roberts and the results of that have been far from wonderful. But still, if this man can get just the concept recognition and practice of originalism restored with SCOTUS he will have performed a near miracle. and IMO .... NOTHING is more important to restoring our country's greatness than restoring and embracing of the concept of originalism, both throughout government and our culture.
folks we have lost this republic Orwells observations and assertions have come to pass and yes it all started decades ago.
OAN is very good, usually no spin, no personal opinions just straight news facts. OAN may prove to be the last bastion of truth on cable TV.
I really enjoy OAN, but I just wish the reporters/journalists weren't so young looking...that is the comment I get when I try to recommend them...
Larry, Interesting article, however, the last part is missing. I tried to edit for you but it won't stick! Maybe try to repost- but remove formatting first...
