Meanwhile, in Europe

The United States isn't alone in Supreme Court madness. In Poland a law introduced a few years ago is paying off. The ruling party is very nationalistic. They changed the constitution on Judicial terms and basically kicked the old judges out of power.

The party / leader then appointed judges who shared their beliefs. The most recent effect of this is that a judge ruled that newly passed Polish laws override EU law. Which is understandable, but is in opposition to EU rules it agreed to when joining. Of course, the EU, like our American Congress, is pretty spineless, so this might work for Poland.

This would be like Arkansas saying their laws overrule the United States federal laws. We fought a civil war over that.
