The Federalist Society is a group of lawyers who worked to get judges on the Supreme Court that would favor big corporations and people who bribe them. They spent over $50 million in secret money to get these judges appointed, and they hold a lot of power over the court. Six current Supreme Court Justices were suggested by the Federalist Society, and all of them are Catholics. The Federalist Society was created to fight against liberal causes in the 1970s, and it is not like liberal organizations. Liberal lawyers believe in a living Constitution, but the Federalist Society does not. The Founders knew that the Constitution had to change with society, but the Federalist Society does not agree with this idea.
The Federalist Society is really a group of attorneys who worked to get corporate judges on the Supreme Court so that they will do the bidding of the bribers. Their sole purpose is the rig a Supreme Court that will rule in favor of the bribers, the big corporations, and the fascists.
Groups behind Trump's Supreme Court picks spent easily over $50 million in secret money to get them appointed. Mostly in the form of Dark Money so the amount is probably much greater. Of course, the payback to the Bribers in court rulings in their favor makes that money look like peanuts.
The success of the Federalist Society is undeniable. They are the gatekeeper for conservative lawyers looking for government jobs and federal judge appointments under Republican presidents. They suggest judicial nominees to the Republicans. They hold undue influence on the U.S. Supreme Court – they have seated six Supreme Court Justices; Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett. All are Catholics and are current or former members of the Federalist Society.
During the 1970s the Federalist Society was organized to fight against liberal causes, such as the NAACP and ACLU. But the Federalist Society is not comparable to liberal organizations. The Federalist Society is the legal version of the anti-intellectual strain that has permeated the right wing of American politics for the last 60 years.
There isn't a liberal version of the Federalist Society, and that is a feature, not a bug. Liberal lawyers believe in a living Constitution and believe that institutions must advance to keep pace with the progress of society. While the Founders were not perfect, their single greatest innovation was the realization that the Constitution had to grow and change with the times. The Federalist Society's ideology is inconsistent with the wisdom of the Founders they pretend to admire.
