    The Supreme Court issued a much-awaited ruling in a tax case, holding that the mandatory repatriation tax passed as part of the 2017 Trump tax cuts did not exceed Congress’ constitutional authority. The court’s holding was narrow, and significant in large part for issues it did not address, leaving open questions related to the constitutionality of alternative taxing schemes—such as a so-called wealth tax—for another day. The 7-2 opinion in Moore v. United States, authored by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, noted that Article I of the Constitution affords Congress broad powers to lay and collect taxes, both direct and indirect taxes,...

    The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a part of President Trump's 2017 'Tax Cuts and Jobs Act' that levied a tax on capital appreciation is constitutional. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the majority opinion. Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch dissented. The court ruled 7-2 that the mandatory repatriation tax, or MRT, is constitutional under the taxation regimes defined in Article I and the 16th Amendment. In short, the MRT imposed a one-time requirement for US citizens and companies to repatriate money held overseas.In 2005, Charles and Kathleen Moore invested $40,000 in an Indian business named KisanKraft, which marketed power tools...

    In March 31 of this year, the center-right Pulitzer-winning journalist Kathleen Parker opened a piece in The Washington Post with the following: Christine Blasey Ford is promoting her new memoir to acclaim from certain quarters, including a glowing review by the New York Times. Meanwhile, the man she accused of being a witness to her alleged sexual assault by now-Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh more than 40 years ago can’t get his own book reviewed or even mentioned by mainstream newspapers.The man Parker describes who couldn’t get his book mentioned is me.

    The press is once again treating Christine Blasey Ford with little journalistic skepticism as they promote her splashy new memoir.“The media coverage of this has been so one-sided, it’s been so biased. There’s been this presumption from the beginning that every allegation made against the judge was true.” So said Joe Scarborough on a fall morning in 2018, referring to the flood of bizarre sexual abuse claims made against Brett Kavanaugh. At the time, Scarborough relayed an observation from social events he attended over the weekend. “Quite a few people that we talked to, who I think a lot of...

    The Hill ^ | BY ZACH SCHONFELD - 03/19/24 10:52 AM ET
    The Supreme Court unanimously ruled Tuesday that a man’s challenge to his former placement on the No Fly List can move forward, finding the government failed to show his lawsuit is moot. Yonas Fikre, a U.S. citizen who previously resided in Sudan, claimed his placement on the list was unlawful and sued the FBI. The government later removed him from the list and signaled it was unlikely he would be readded. It then contended Fikre’s lawsuit was moot as a result and should be tossed. The government warned that not declaring lawsuits like Fikre’s moot at the onset could require...

    "Seinfeld" co-creator and actor Jerry Seinfeld hinted that a reunion for the popular sitcom may be in the works. During a recent performance for his comedy show, Seinfeld, 69, teased that he and co-creator Larry David were working on a special project for fans. "Well, I have a little secret for you about the ending. But I can’t really tell it, because it is a secret. Here’s what I’ll tell you. OK? But you can’t tell anybody," Seinfeld began in an Instagram video shared by Boston Global Media CEO Linda Henry.

    Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) honored the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark Dobbs decision by acknowledging former President Donald Trump’s contribution to the pro-life movement and previewing Congress’s forthcoming federal pro-life initiatives.“I think when it comes to the Supreme Court nominations, President Trump was the most pro-life president we’ve ever had,” Stefanik told Breitbart News ahead of speaking at a celebratory event hosted by the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List this week.“And thank goodness for his strong nominations to the Supreme Court,” Stefanik added. “I certainly am proud that we have so many pro-life leaders stepping up...

    EXCLUSIVE — An advocacy nonprofit group behind a campaign demanding Supreme Court "transparency" reforms on financial disclosures is in panic mode over accidentally leaking its own funders to the Washington Examiner. Fix the Court, a charity that spun off in 2021 after being a project of the New Venture Fund, a nonprofit group managed by the liberal dark money behemoth and for-profit company Arabella Advisors, is part of a seemingly coordinated campaign calling for Supreme Court justices to disclose more about their finances. Now, the organization is in disarray after unwittingly providing the Washington Examiner with unredacted copies of its...
  • Rolling Stone UVA RAPE story is identical to Senate testimony held on June 26 2014

    One of the student survivors I worked with, Jenna*, was gang-raped by five fraternity men early in her freshman year. Despite the severity of the assault and injuries she sustained, Jenna still experienced a feeling of personal responsibility. Looking for affirmation, she sought out peers and told her story. Sadly, each and every one of the friends she reached out to responded with varying denials of her experience; these responses worsened her feelings of self-blame – that she must be confused because that fraternity “is full of great guys”; that she must have made them think she was “down for...

    While former President Donald Trump faced some criticism for inviting Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., onto his leadership team in the important battleground state, Graham made Trump look justified in his decision Saturday.Speaking after being introduced by Trump, in the speech that aired live in its entirety on Newsmax, an animated Graham spoke forcefully in support of Trump."Well, he did it once, he can do it again — isn't that why we're here?" Graham said in a fiery defense of his political ally.Graham was referring to Republican forces who had been sharing a narrative the 2024 GOP candidate should hold Trump's...

    Bloomberg reporter Lydia Wheeler took an absurd dive into criticism of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh which served to illustrate her apparent entrapment inside a liberal bubble which filters out any news contrary to an authorized narrative. And the narrative she was promoting was an attack upon Kavanaugh on December 12 in "Kavanaugh’s Holiday Party Appearance Renews Supreme Court Ethics Questions."According to Wheeler, Kavanaugh's crime was attending a party hosted by a (GASP!) conservative:

    Kamala Harris has been accused of hypocrisy after she demanded people 'speak out against hate' following the attack on Paul Pelosi - while she has still failed to condemn the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Harris, campaigning in Philadelphia on Friday ahead of the midterms, said the attack in the early hours on the Pelosi's San Francisco home was 'tragic' and 'extreme violence'. Harris called for an end to 'hate and division', adding, 'I strongly believe that we all, each one of us, have to speak out against hate, we have to speak out against violence, obviously,...

    VIDEOThe resemblance between the two voices is uncanny. Both in voice quality and speaking patterns of Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs and Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford. Since it seems like Blasey Ford was coached to sound like a helpless child, many in the public did not buy into that phony way of speaking. Listen to them both speaking back to back and judge for yourselves whether Katie Hobbs consciously decided to borrow Blasey Ford's helpless child voice while making her pitiful apology.

    The FBI director knows a lot about issues that matter to the Biden regime and the media. But he isn’t so savvy when it comes to issues that matter to Americans. It was time for him to fly. FBI Director Christopher Wray, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the first time since July 2021, insisted he had to leave the hearing by 1:30 p.m. sharp. (It began at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.) Despite leading a scandal-ridden agency quickly losing the trust of the American people and congressional Republicans, Wray somehow believes that setting aside less than four hours...
  • Actor John Cusack Demands AG Merrick Garland ‘Must Resign’

    Actor John Cusack took to Twitter on Monday to call on U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to resign, claiming Garland is “sleepwalking us into fascism” because he hasn’t brought criminal charges against former President Donald Trump. “Ag garland must resign,” Cusack wrote. The Hot Tub Time Machine star was responding to leftist and former NBA player Rex Chapman, who tweeted “The former president of the United States of America knew there were armed protesters at his rally on January 6th — and he wanted to go with them to the Capitol, in order to stop the certification of an election...

    Following the leak of the opinions from SCOTUS, protests mounted in front of the homes of conservative Justices of the Supreme Court. Brett Kavanaugh's home was among them. The protests were an effort to intimidate Kavanaugh into backing away from the potential reversal of Roe vs Wade. Once the decision to overturn Roe, Kavanaugh's home was again the target of protest. The other night Kavanaugh was harassed while eating dinner at Morton's Steak House and forced to flee out the back door. All are illegal under Federal Law. Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration...

    "Protesters are upset because a right, an important right that the majority of Americans support, was taken away." Kavanaugh was dining at a restaurant in downtown D.C. last Wednesday when he made a backdoor exit after a group of abortion rights protesters was tipped off while the justice was eating and showed up out front. “Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant," a Morton's representative said in a statement obtained by Politico. "Politics, regardless of your side or views, should...

    Thousands of people have been making fake reservations at Morton's steakhouse after the restaurant defended conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade last month. Abortion rights protesters in D.C. learned that Kavanaugh was having dinner at Morton's and gathered outside the restaurant on Wednesday night, forcing the Supreme Court justice to exit out a back door. While the court has yet to comment on Kavanaugh's behalf regarding the incident, a representative for Morton's wrote in a statement to Politico: "Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were...

    Megyn Kelly blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as a “moron” and a “Kardashian in Congress” after the progressive lawmaker called for impeaching Supreme Court justices over their decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. During an appearance on Eric Bolling’s Monday night program on the right-leaning cable channel Newsmax, Kelly unloaded on the congresswoman from the Bronx and Queens during a discussion of the aftermath of Friday’s dramatic abortion ruling. Kelly was asked to opine on the Sunday comments by Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) when she demanded that Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh be impeached for allegedly lying under oath during their...

    Short answer: Of course not. Neither Kavanaugh nor any other justice would pledge privately to rule a particular way in a future case. To do so would be unethical.…although Kavanaugh did pledge *publicly* to rule a particular way in certain future cases in yesterday’s Dobbs concurrence.Longer answer: If this NYT story is accurate, he strongly implied to Collins that he wouldn’t dump Roe. “Lie” is too strong a word, but you can understand why she feels misled.Jazz has a post coming up about the political predicament in which Collins now finds herself. She’s one of two pro-choice Republicans left in...
