    We’ll tell YOU which black lives matter. And odds are better than a million to one that those that matter will only be those that advance the progressive narrative in some unconstructive way. Furthermore, let’s just stipulate to this upfront: none of them will be either conservative or Republican.Case in point: Clarence Thomas. George Will’s column is an elaboration on Justice Thomas’ position that the judicial branch should move to limit the legislative branch’s practice of delegating its power to the executive branch. If you’ve been paying attention over the past 40 years or so you’ve noticed how this shift...

    Washington (CNN)—Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has courted another notable conservative. The Cruz campaign announced Tuesday the endorsement of Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, a high-profile conservative activist and the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. "He's distinguishing himself as somebody who can make things happen and excite the country to bring us back on course," Thomas said in a video announcing her endorsement. Thomas praised Cruz's often confrontational relationship with establishment political figures, saying, "Ted Cruz has got the scars to show he has tangled with the top Republican leaders and Democrat leaders in town."(continued)

    Black lives matter unless, apparently, youre Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The left is renewing its venomous, racist attacks on Thomas in the aftermath of his dissent in the Supreme Courts 6-3 ruling in favor of gay marriage. Actor George Takei smeared Thomas as a clown in blackface. The Huffington Post called his dissent beyond ridiculous and tarred him as a hypocrite for opposing a court-created right to gay marriage: Clarence Thomas is married to a white woman something that would be illegal today, if it werent for the Supreme Courts historic Loving v.

    Last week The New York Times published a story with the sensational headline "Clarence Thomas, a Supreme Court Justice of Few Words, Some Not His Own." Some not his own? Was the Times accusing Thomas of plagiarism? It sure seemed like it was. Here's how the piece began: Justice Clarence Thomas has not asked a question from the Supreme Court bench since 2006. His majority opinions tend to be brisk, efficient and dutiful. Now, studies using linguistic software have discovered another Thomas trait: Those opinions contain language from briefs submitted to the court at unusually high rates. The piece goes...

The purpose of the document might suggest Clinton, or at least those closest to her and in her circle, are interested in impeaching Justice Thomas. The document contains information from Brock about his book, The Real Anita Hill, and other similar points on Justice Thomas's personal life. The document contains details of Brock himself potentially intimidating women close to Justice Thomas. These details were from a 2001 New York Times article, in which the author reached out to a colleague of Thomas,...

With this remark from George Takei, I think it’s safe to say the contest is now over.

Their reactions are perhaps not surprising for a community, including Broadway, that has long supported same-sex marriage and that counts many gay individuals both behind and in front of the curtain. Many states had already decided to legalize same-sex marriage, but Friday's decision means that same-sex couples have the right to marry in all 50 states....

    The lone African-American justice on the Supreme Court dissented from the landmark ruling declaring gay marriage legal nationwide, addressing, in part, the majority opinion's view that gay marriage would bestow dignity upon gay couples. In a 5-4 decision, the highest court in the land ruled Friday morning that state-level gay marriage bans violate the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Justice Clarence Thomas, one of the four dissenters, wrote in his dissent that the government cannot bestow "dignity" to gay marriages, despite the ruling. "Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government...

    The Supreme Court saved a law Thursday aimed at preventing housing discrimination, and Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a scathing dissent calling out his liberal colleagues for their "audacity." In a 5-4 decision on Thursday, the Supreme Court's majority found that the Fair Housing Act (FHA) prevents housing practices that unfairly impact minorities even if those practices are not intentionally discriminatory. Many cases brought under the FHA involve so-called disparate-impact claims, so a ruling against fair-housing advocates would have seriously hobbled the law.

The move to submit a signed dissent, noted first by Reason.com, was rare enough.

It's a dramatic reversal from the first season, and it has infuriated some hard leftists.

I'd go so far as to say they're the heroes." It quickly became apparent that these characters could...

    MONTGOMERY, AL, April 10, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) More than 100 people rallied at the Alabama State House in Montgomery yesterday afternoon to disprove a Democrat's controversial remarks that whites do not adopt black children and prefer to see interracial babies aborted. In March, state Rep.

They ain't gonna let her have the baby. In the same March...

    Justice Clarence Thomass influence was on full display in the Supreme Courts landmark decision to strike down a key campaign finance restriction. And its just one in a string of cases in which Thomas could be dragging the court toward his way of thinking.Chief Justice John Roberts penned Wednesdays plurality decision, which eliminates the limit on the total dollar amount an individual may give to political candidates and committees.But Thomas, seen by many as the courts most conservative justice, wrote a concurring opinion that both represented the decisive vote in the 5-4 decision, and beckoned the justices to go further.Thomas...

    My son's 3rd grade school teacher requires students to write a report about a famous black American for Black History month. He took my suggestion to write about Clarence Thomas. Students are supposed to list the ten important things the person has done. What would your list be for Clarence Thomas? The most important thing Thomas has done is recognize that judges are supposed to interpret the constitution as written, not to legislate from the bench. This is a fairly abstract idea both for 3rd-graders and modern liberals. I need suggestions for fleshing out this idea. The wife nixed my...

    San Diego, California (CNN) -- Clarence Thomas has an abundance of two things that are often in short supply whenever Americans talk about race: courage and common sense. The only African-American on the Supreme Court displayed both this week in speaking to a small gathering of students and faculty at Palm Beach Atlantic University, a nondenominational Christian school in Florida. In a series of provocative and insightful comments about race that were first reported by Yahoo! News and confirmed by several people who attended the talk and heard the remarks firsthand, Thomas dropped a few bombshells. This got people's attention...
