  • Gorsuch leads the charge against judicial overreach

    Liberals control the legal profession, from the law schools and litigious nonprofits to the bar associations and judges (including many Republican appointees). Judicial supremacy, implemented through “universal injunctions,” allows any liberal legal group to tap one of 670 district judges in 94 district courts to decide on a broad range of public policies, which the political elite then treat as “law.” The good news: Evidence seems to suggest that at least three Supreme Court justices intend to end this irrational practice. We might only have three justices on our side, but governors should still firmly reject overreaching judges who believe...

    RINO Representative Mike Gallagher (WI) will exit the House as early as next month. Gallagher, who is currently serving as the chairman of the Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, last month announced that he will not seek reelection. Instead of serving out the rest of his term, Gallagher will retire early leaving the GOP with a one-vote majority! But it’s worse than that. Gallagher announced he will leave in mid-April. If Gallagher would have left before April 9th he would have triggered a special election in his district. Because he is leaving after April 9th but still in...
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Trump’s $355 Million Fine

    Let me tell you about the time Ruth Bader Ginsburg saved Donald Trump $355 million plus interest. It was Feb. 20, 2019, and Justice Ginsburg delivered the opinion of the court in the case of Timbs v. Indiana. In that case, police in Indiana had seized Tyson Timbs’ Land Rover SUV, which he bought for $42,000 with money he received from a life insurance policy when his dad died. The state sought civil forfeiture of the vehicle because Timbs had pleaded guilty to drug dealing and conspiracy to commit theft. However, the fine for the crime was only $10,000 and...

    Fox News host and former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) urged former President Trump not to take a victory lap after the Supreme Court ruled Monday that states cannot bar him from the ballot in this fall’s presidential election. “I would encourage him to do something that he doesn’t often do, which is show humility because there are other decisions that are coming that he may not agree with,” Gowdy said on Fox. “I don’t think he’s going to win the presidential immunity case before the court.” Gowdy’s comments were first highlighted by Mediaite.The court voted Monday, by unanimous decision, to...

    Representative Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, on Monday said he's working with colleagues on legislation that could bar someone who committed insurrection from holding office. Raskin made the announcement after the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that former President Donald Trump should appear on the primary ballot in states that have challenged his presidential candidacy. "I'm working with a number of my colleagues—including [Democratic Representatives] Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Eric Swalwell—to revive set up a process by which we could determine that someone who committed insurrection is disqualified by section three of the 14th amendment," Raskin said during an appearance...

    Top Democrat Jamie Raskin said he is working with fellow liberals in Congress to revive legislation that would disqualify Donald Trump from running for office in light of the new Supreme Court ruling. The high court on Monday ruled 9-0 that only Congress, not Colorado, can ban Trump from the ballot and the former president must be reinstated on the Centennial State's primary ballots. Raskin, D-Md., who chairs the Oversight Committee, said he was collaborating with colleagues like Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., to 'revive legislation that we had to set up a process by which we...

    VIDEOLook at the CRAZY EYES of Colorado Secretary Of State Jena Griswold as she reacts to the Supreme Court knocking down her crackpot idea by a UNANIMOUS vote for keeping President Trump off her state's ballot. If her CRAZY EYES look familiar it is because they are the same CRAZY EYES we have seen on other extreme fanatics. And if CRAZY EYES Griswold is this fanatic, you can expect her to do everything in her power to "fortify" the election this year in Colorado. Legal or NOT.

    Donald Trump addressed Joe Biden directly in a press conference Monday after the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling that Colorado cannot disqualify Trump from appearing on the 2024 ballot. “President Biden, number one: Stop weaponization. Fight your fight yourself,” Trump said from Mar-A-Lago. “Don’t use prosecutors and judges to go after your opponent to try and damage your opponents and you can win an election. Our country is much bigger than that.” In direct but measured remarks, Trump went after Biden and prosecutors at the U.S. Department of Justice and in jurisdictions across the country for their coordinated attacks against him,...

    Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellow has reversed course in her effort to keep former President Trump off the primary ballot after the Supreme Court on Monday unanimously overturned a similar ruling in Colorado. “I have reviewed the Anderson decision carefully. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that individual states lack authority to enforce Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment with respect to federal offices,” wrote Bellows, a Democrat. “Consistent with my oath and obligation to follow the law and the Constitution, and pursuant to the Anderson decision, I hereby withdraw my determination that Mr. Trump’s primary petition is invalid.”...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favor of Donald Trump in a historic case challenging his eligibility to seek the Republican presidential nomination under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment due to his actions around the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. The court was unanimous in reversing the unprecedented decision out of Colorado that would kick Trump off the ballot under the provision after a state trial court found he participated in "insurrection" on Jan. 6 through incitement. “For the reasons given, responsibility for enforcing Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates rests with Congress...

    The Supreme Court is set to issue a ruling on Trump’s ballot eligibility after he challenged a decision by the Colorado Supreme Court to bar him from the 2024 primary ballot. In December the Colorado Supreme Court disqualified Trump from the 2024 ballot. All 7 Colorado Supreme Court justices were appointed by Democrats – 3 of the justices dissented to the ruling. The legal theories are based on Section 3 of the US Constitution’s 14th Amendment which states public officials who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the US may be disqualified from public office. Trump has not been...

    By merely asking for examples, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas calmly destroyed respondents’ argument for disqualifying former President Donald Trump from Colorado’s 2024 presidential primary ballot. The moment came on Thursday morning, during oral arguments on Trump’s appeal to overturn the Colorado Supreme Court’s Dec. 19 decision to keep him off the Centennial State’s 2024 primary ballot. Colorado’s highest court claimed in its ruling that the former president can be “disqualified” from holding office under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which stipulates that “[n]o person” who has previously sworn an oath as an officer of the United States...

    American Greatness ^ | January 13, 2024 | Paul Ingrassia
    There is a reason the Founding Fathers attached the requirement of being a “natural born citizen” to the President (and, with the passage of the Twelfth Amendment, the Vice President) only and no other federal offices. The idea was to elevate the threshold for the highest elected political office of the land; notably, that language is absent in Article I, which stipulates that lawmakers running for the House or Senate need only be “citizens” to qualify. The early debates surrounding the passage of the Constitution add support for the view that the Framers wanted to exclude “the admission of foreigners...

    A Texas man who filed over two dozen challenges to former President Trump’s ballot eligibility was arrested Tuesday on charges alleging he filed 17 sets of false tax documents to the IRS. John Anthony Castro was indicted last week on 33 counts of aiding the preparation of false tax returns. Prosecutors claim he ran a virtual tax preparation business that provided customers with tax returns beyond what they were actually owed, defrauding the government. “Castro would promise a significantly higher refund than taxpayers could receive from other preparers and on many occasions, offered to split the additional refund with taxpayers,”...

    A Maryland county claims under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, it can create a school board seat that only illegal immigrants can vote for, according to reports. The Washington Times reported that Howard County officials appeared before a federal court of appeals last month and defended its current process of having a school board seat occupied by a student, in which only public school students are allowed to vote for. Some Howard County residents are challenging the practice on the basis of it being unconstitutional discrimination in voting, particularly against the county general electorate and students at religious...

    (Dec. 29, 2023) — Well, faithful P&E readers, here we go again. Yesterday, on Dec. 28, 2023, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows – a registered Democrat and perhaps one of the most anti-President Trump, pro-progressive and biased governmental officials in the nation – issued her 34-page “decision” determining that Mr. Trump’s name would be excluded from the Maine presidential primary election ballot. As for her political preferences, this should give one a small hint. And with regard to the image of Brandon and Shenna Bellows now “going viral” on social media platforms, note that Bellows explains that “President Biden...

    Donald Trump will remain on Michigan’s state ballot after a ruling from the Michigan supreme court on Wednesday, which upheld a lower court order. The move sets the stage for the former president to participate in the Michigan primary despite accusations that he led an insurrection against the United States. The court’s decision not to move forward with a case against Trump sets the court in sharp contrast to the Colorado supreme court, which recently ruled to strip Trump from its state primary ballot because of his role in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol. In Michigan, as...
