Democrats are in an uproar over the latest Supreme Court ruling on presidential immunity. And they’ve turned vicious claws toward the justices in hopes of taking them down somehow. They never can just accept defeat graciously. That is the nature of their demonic beast.

But as Jim Gilmore, former governor of Virginia, says: This immunity case only makes clear that presidents, regardless of political party affiliation, must have the ability and authority to take actions that benefit and protect America without fear of retribution, or revenge.

“In my time,” he says, “I’ve read thousands of [court] cases and this is just about one of the most significant cases that I’ve ever read. … It goes to the question of what you can do to the president of the United States who is acting as president of the United States.”

It goes to the matter of lawfare, or using courts to launch political attacks.
