    During last night’s final presidential debate, the issue of the Second Amendment came up. Hillary Clinton tried her best to say she would protect the right to bear arms, but wants “sensible regulation”… whatever that’s supposed to mean. I want people who shouldn’t have guns not to be able to threaten you, kill you or members of your family.

    We roll our eyes today in disbelief of odd, ancient, pagan practices involving animal sacrifice, various gods, and oracles. Yet the Greek mythology developed around such practices shaped early western civilization. Decades ago, as a tourist in Greece, I visited the site of the Oracle of Delphi. Over some twelve hundred years, Delphic oracles gave governing advice to kings and statesmen. While under the influence of hallucinogens, oracular advice took the form of gibberish, which priests subsequently interpreted for the supplicants. Lycurgus famously designed the government of Sparta around what he learned at Delphi. I draw an only slightly tongue-in-cheek...

    Today, in an exclusive interview with Alt-Right investigative reporters, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor expressed her regret about the baseball bat statement concerning deceased SC Justice Antonin Scalia. She expressed regret that the Obama Administration had taken him out before she could get to him with her favorite custom made "Raptor" baseball bat. She had dreamt of the day she would catch him alone behind the Supreme Court where she would kneecap him first and then use Raptor to deliver the final killing blows when he begged for mercy. She stated that she had a visceral hate for him because...

    Sonia Sotomayor said her fellow Supreme Court justice´s comments sometimes left her wanting to dispense rough justice with sporting equipment. “There are things he’s said on the bench where if I had a baseball bat, I might have used it,” the Bronx-born judge said of her late colleague Antonin Scalia on Monday. Scalia was a longtime leader of the Court’s conservative wing, often on the opposite side of Sotomayor on issues such as gay marriage and affirmative action after she was appointed by President Obama in 2009.

Hilary Clinton will win in an electoral landslide, although the voter turn-out will be low.

    Sunday night’s second presidential debate underscored the importance of the next Supreme Court justice, as the candidates and questioners alike recognized that the fate of the federal courts rests in the next president’s hands. The high court has been closely divided on many contentious issues in recent years, and the next justice could change the development and application of the law for decades. As former Attorney General Ed Meese has stated, "No president exercises any power more far-reaching, more likely to influence his legacy, than the selection of federal judges." Although the Framers of the Constitution envisioned the judiciary as...

    If you had any doubt whether or not Obama’s politicized DOJ was deliberately targeting conservative elected officials, this should confirm your suspicions. The US Supreme Court overturned a convictionin June against former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell for bribery. This was extremely significant, because the decisionwas unanimous — even all the liberal justices on the court agreed the criminal charges were a sham. Writing the opinion for the court, Chief Justice Roberts saidthe prosecutors had taken an overly broad interpretation of federal bribery law, and that if the court had allowed the conviction to stand, it would have made it extremely...

    A liberal Court could end long-term solitary confinement. It could mandate better prison conditions in general, making it more costly to maintain mass incarceration. It could conceivably end the death penalty. It could uphold tough state campaign finance rules and start to move away from Citizens United. It could start to develop a robust right to vote and limit gerrymandering. It could strengthen abortion rights, moving toward viewing abortion rights as a matter of equal protection for women. If Donald Trump wins in November, this is all moot. But if he loses, as polls increasingly indicate, the dawn of a...

    In the case of King v. Burwell, decided by the Supreme Court in June of 2015, President Obama won the day by convincing six justices that Obamacare would collapse if he lost. The case involved the so-called "individual mandate," which imposes a financial penalty on those who neglect to buy health insurance. To many observers, the wording of Affordable Care Act seemed to impose the financial penalty only in states where a state exchange had been set up, not in states where the federal exchange operated by default. At that time, only 16 states (and the District of Columbia) had...

    The Obama administration’s two levels of defense of its broad new immigration policy — one, a continued attempt to put the policy into effect, the other, a move to head off a federal judge’s ethical complaints against federal lawyers in the case — are moving along even in the slow court days of summer. The policy seeking to put off deportation of close to five million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. has never gone into effect because of lower court orders stalling it. On June 23, the Supreme Court left those orders in effect, splitting 4-to-4. That was not...

    A Virginia school board may temporarily block a student who was born a girl from using the boys' bathroom while a legal fight over transgender rights proceeds on appeal, the U.S. Supreme Court said on Wednesday. The case is the first time the fight over transgender bathroom rights has reached the Supreme Court, and the subject arrived in the heat of a U.S. presidential election in which the makeup of the court is a central issue. In a brief order, the country's highest court put on hold an order from a lower court that had permitted the high school student...

    The Supreme Court decided Wednesday to put a hold on a ruling that would have required a Virginia school district to allow a transgender high school student to use the boy's bathroom. The eight justices split 5-3, with Democrat-appointed Justice Stephen Breyer siding with the Republican-appointed judges that the Gloucester County public school system does not have to accommodate student Gavin Grimm's request to use the bathroom of his choice.

    Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said she “loves” the idea of appointing Barack Obama to the Supreme Court if she’s elected president. At a campaign event in Iowa Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton told the crowd the next president may have to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices. When one attendee mentioned Mr. Obama as a contender, she seemed excited by the recommendation. "Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow," Mrs. Clinton said. "He may have a few other things to do, but I tell you, that's a great idea."

    GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence on Thursday predicted that Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, would be overturned if Donald Trump is elected president. “I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” he said during a town hall meeting here. “We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”

    Roger Goodell won, so I am moving to New Zealand, just like U.S. Supreme Court Judge Ruth Ginsburg. I can't imagine what this country will be -- what the NFL will be -- with Roger Goodell as our commissioner. For Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots it will be four long games. For the country and the NFL it will be many long years. I don't even want to contemplate that. It is no way to make the Patriots great again. Goodell is a faker.

    Today, the Justice Department petitioned the Court “for re-hearing of this case before a full nine-Member Court.” Success is unlikely here. If five Justices wanted to hold the case until there was a ninth Justice, rather than deciding the case by a 4-4 margin, they could have simply held it over, like they did with Citizens United. That didn’t happen, which tells me that they could not broker a compromise internally. Instead, they made the somewhat striking decision to affirm by an equally divided margin. Nudging from OSG is unlikely to change the equation. The immediate effect of this petition...
