    The eloquent Justice Clarence Thomas recently warned the class of 2016 in a commencement address at Hillsdale College that since "the rising tide of social justice demands run afoul of this nation's founding principles," this year’s grads should "prioritize hard work, civic duty and personal responsibility." "As you go through life, try to be that person that teaches others how to be better people and better citizens," Thomas said. "Do not hide your faith and your beliefs under a bushel basket, especially in this world that seems to have gone bad with political correctness." Thomas also honored his former colleague...

    Police say actor Wendell Pierce has been arrested at an Atlanta hotel where he was a guest. Atlanta Police Department spokesman Donald Hannah says in a statement that Pierce was arrested early Saturday morning at the Loews Atlanta Hotel. New Orleans native Pierce is known for his television roles as Detective William "Bunk" Moreland on The Wire and Antoine Batiste on Treme. TMZ earlier reported that Pierce allegedly got into a physical altercation with a man and woman, reportedly a couple, at the hotel after a political dispute. Citing hotel sources, TMZ reports that Pierce, an avowed Hillary Clinton supporter,...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas urged college graduates who seek to "preserve liberty" to do so by fulfilling the duties of their daily vocations rather than attempting to achieve sweeping political goals. "At the risk of understating what is necessary to preserve liberty in our form of government, I think more and more that it depends on good citizens, discharging their daily duties in their daily obligations," Thomas said Saturday during a commencement address at Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan.

    U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is set to deliver the 2016 commencement address to the graduating class of Hillsdale College on Saturday, May 14. This will mark one of the few times that Justice Thomas has spoken publicly since the surprising death of Justice Antonin Scalia back in February of this year. Statistics show that conservative leaning speakers such as Justice Thomas are becoming increasingly rare at graduation ceremonies around the country.

    On Saturday night, HBO debuted its account of the 1991 Clarence Thomas hearings. While it was billed as “meticulously researched” by the leftist screenwriters and Hollywood executives behind the film, Confirmation rewrites history to advance the myth that Anita Hill was a victim of sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas. The fictional “docudrama” that twists and omits key facts, and in some cases, outright makes things up, is yet another attempt by the left to establish through persistence what could not be established through evidence. At the end of Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings, polling done by Pew and others showed that...

    The left is masterful at rewriting history. Witness HBO's TV movie "Confirmation," which aired Saturday, about Anita Hill's accusations of sexual harassment 25 years ago, which almost derailed Clarence Thomas from becoming a Supreme Court justice. The drama's makers claim that they didn't take sides in depicting Thomas' Senate confirmation hearings, even as a trailer punctuates close-ups of actress Kerry Washington, who played Hill, with stentorian capital letters: "It only takes one voice ... to change history." Another trailer proclaims, "One woman made a choice ... to take a stand." Apparently, because HBO didn't expressly label Thomas as guilty, producers...

    Some of us are old enough to remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation battle. We were shocked when reports first surfaced that Thomas, a well-regarded former chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, was being accused of sexual harassment. But then we heard his accuser’s ever-changing and uncorroborated testimony, and we compared it with the testimony of a dozen close female colleagues who effusively praised Thomas as a boss known for how well he treated the women around him. We learned that his accuser Anita Hill’s testimony was contradicted by data and evidence. Thomas won his confirmation battle....

    On Saturday, HBO will air it's much promoted new film Confirmation, a dramatic and biased account of Justice Clarence Thomas' 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings. As many recall, law professor Anita Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment in an effort to derail the hearings and made a career out of making a number of dubious claims. HBO of course, is happy to promote them. HBO and the producers claim the film is an accurate and well researched portrayal of history. Many who were there strongly disagree: A group of former politicians and their aides are bracing themselves for a new HBO...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is known for his silence during oral arguments. He has explained that he doesn’t think he learns much about a case that hasn’t already been covered in the briefs for the contending parties plus the numerous amicus briefs that explore many more aspects of the case. He prefers to listen and allow the lawyers to argue without further interruption. Justice Thomas had not asked a question during oral arguments since 2006 when, during the arguments in Voisine v. United States on February 29, he posed a question to the government’s counsel, Assistant to the Solicitor...

    With the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia, it seems as if Clarence Thomas feels compelled to fill the void left by the outspoken Originalist. Prior to Justice Alito's confirmation, Justice Thomas and Scalia constituted the core of the conservative win on the Court. Adam Liptak of The New York Times reported that Thomas has remained silent since a 2006 case involving the death penalty. Liptak added that Thomas is self-conscious about his southern dialect, but added that his silence is also part of his personality; Thomas wrote in his memoir that he was quiet as an undergraduate and a law...

    For the first time in a decade, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas spoke during oral arguments. Just last week, CNN wrote about the ten-year anniversary of Thomas's last question at oral arguments. That anniversary, February 22, came on the same day the Supreme Court first heard oral arguments after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, who was Thomas's ideological soul mate and who had defended his lack of questions over the years. According to reporters in the courtroom Monday, Thomas asked a government attorney, Ilana H. Eisenstein, several questions during a case concerning gun ownership and domestic violence. The question...

Since then, Thomas has not even spoken from the bench during oral arguments except to crack a joke about Yale in 2013. Thankfully, Thomas hasn't been completely mum on why he asks no questions. At an event in North Carolina in June 2012, Thomas said he would get rid of oral arguments if he could, which sheds some light on why he might not be...

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 weren’t for the Supreme Court’s historic Loving v. Virginia ruling.” As if...

    George Takei unleashed a racist rant against Clarence Thomas, sneering that the Supreme Court justice is a "clown in blackface." The Star Trek actor on Monday fumed, "[Thomas] is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court. He gets me that angry. He doesn't belong there." Talking to a local Fox affiliate in Phoenix, Takei snarled that the second African American on the Supreme Court is unqualified: "This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America."

    For Broadway's Audra McDonald And Others, Same-Sex Marriage Ruling Is A 'No-Brainer' By DAVID NG AND DEBORAH VANKIN Prominent members of the performing and visual arts professions have voiced their approval of Friday's ruling by the Supreme Court legalizing same-sex marriage around the country. 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...

    Distancing themselves from the majority on the Supreme Court, Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas filed a dissenting opinion to Wednesday's Defense Against Marriage Act ruling, stating that “same-sex marriage presents a highly emotional and important question of public policy – but not a difficult question of constitutional law." "The Constitution does not guarantee the right to enter into a same-sex marriage,” the justices wrote. The landmark case was filed by Edith Windsor of New York, who was forced to pay taxes on an inheritance when Thea Spyer, the woman she married in Ontario, Canada, died in 2009. Windsor was...

    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. Thomas — the court's only African-American justice — wrote a separate dissent questioning the notion that the government...

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact a ruling that struck down anArizona law that denied bail to illegal immigrants charged with certain felonies. The justices rejected an appeal filed by Maricopa County and its controversial sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Three of the court's conservative justices, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, said they would have heard the case. Four of the nine justices must agree to hear a case for the court to take it up. The court's action means the October 2014 ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the 2006 law is unconstitutional, is the final word in the...
