    The ruling was against the Soros-backed Alliance for Open Society International. The Supreme Court issued a ruling on Monday making it clear that a major front of progressive billionaire oligarch George Soros does not have 1st Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution. In the case of Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts ruled against 1st Amendment right for the Soros front. Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented against the majority while Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the...
  • Never Trumpers cross line with party operatives by targeting GOP senators: 'Taking it too far'

    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. ... The spot characterizes Daines – who’s facing a...

    John Roberts is a politician — a politician who consistently makes laws, inconsistently applies the Constitution, and can't be voted out of office. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Unelected leftist politicians in robes with lifetime tenure. Turns out, the Supreme Court is a joke, and the punchline is Chief Justice John Roberts.Two high court decisions this week brought that reality into focus, when the George W. Bush-appointed chief sided with leftist justices to say sexual orientation is “sex,” and that the current commander in chief can’t undo unlawful executive action from a past president because of his reasons.Roberts has quite the...

    The fact that four justices who complained that the court needed to hear Second Amendment cases passed on 10 chances to do so tells us much about the courtÂ’s 'swing vote.' The U.S. Supreme CourtÂ’s decision to pass on nearly a dozen gun-rights-related cases is breathtaking, not in the denial of hearing any, but in the seeming admission that the conservative associate justices think Chief Justice John Roberts canÂ’t be trusted to protect the Bill of Rights.The nationÂ’s top court denied writ of certiorari to 10 cases. The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearm industry trade association, submitted amicus curiae...

    Democrats such as Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Andrew Cuomo and others who support abortion on demand should never invoke the Bible in their attacks on anyone. SNIP Journalists and other Democrats who have continually lied about Russian collusion, Trump being a racist, what Trump said in Charlottesville, about rubber bullets and tear gas being used to disperse a crowd, to destroy Flynn, to destroy white Christian schoolboys from Kentucky, to destroy Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and many other things the last four years in order to destroy Trump and elect Democrats should never invoke the Bible. After all the Bible says:...

    Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer said on Monday that he was surprised to hear President Trump say that Tara Reade's sexual assault allegations against 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden sound “credible.” “Frankly, if I were the president, I would just stay out of that because this is what we got into with Kavanaugh, right? 'Was it credible, was it not credible, were there corroborating witnesses?’” the former White House press secretary said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar panned the idea that the media should "believe all women" who allege sexual misconduct and denied applying a different standard to Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "To me, if you say I believe any woman who makes any accusation -- if you say that, I think it minimizes our credibility as women, and then nobody's going to believe anybody at some point," Behar said. The co-hosts were discussing former NBC host Matt Lauer's full-throated attack on Ronan Farrow's reporting, which cited a woman accusing the former "Today" star of rape. That prompted Behar to...

    He was the subject of a recent book, “The Enigma of Clarence Thomas,” which led to a flurry of articles and book reviews on his life and legal thought. A new biographical documentary, made by the conservative filmmaker Michael Pack, airs Monday on PBS. For the project, the justice spoke to filmmakers for 30 hours — an astounding feat for a jurist who once went 10 years without asking a question from the bench. “He would have never said, ‘Gee whiz, I should be an icon,’” said Helgi Walker, a lawyer at the firm Gibson Dunn who clerked for Justice...

    Are the women who accused Donald Trump of sexual assault telling the truth? What about Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers? What about Joe Biden’s accusers? Ultimately, only the people involved know the full details. But for us on the outside, those of us watching and reacting, one thing is required: consistency. As Scripture teaches, God hates unequal weights and measures. This theme is found throughout the Bible, in passages like this, having to do with buying and selling: “You shall not have in your pouch alternate weights, larger and smaller. You shall not have in your house alternate measures, a larger and...

    A few weeks before the 2016 election, Brett Kavanaugh, then a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, drew a lot of attention with a ruling concluding that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, conceived in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, was unconstitutional. The agency, in the judge’s view, was simply too powerful, and Congress erred when making its director independent of, and unaccountable to, the president of the United States. That design, as conceived by lawmakers, served the purpose of insulating the CFPB from undue political influence — say, from...

    Democrat Cory Booker sounds a lot different in the way he is treating allegations against Joe Biden vs how he sounded during the time Brett Kavanaugh went through something similar. Cory Booker was very vocal against Brett Kavanaugh, but not so much against Joe Biden. Is that because they are both Democrats?

    Feinstein questioned why Reade waited so long to bring forward her allegations. “And I don’t know this person at all who has made the allegations. She came out of nowhere. Where has she been all these years? He was Vice President,” Feinstein said. To “attack him in this way to me is absolutely ridiculous.” “No, I do not,” she said when asked if she believes Reade, according to the Hill.

    Politico's Tim Alberta had an embarrassing temper tantrum after the New York Times published a letter from a 'founder of Politico' that said Biden winning was more important than justice for an alleged rape victim. On Tuesday, the New York Times published a letter to the editor from Martin Tolchin, identifying him as “a former member of The Times’s Washington bureau and a founder of Politico.” The letter took issue with a Times editorial that said the media should stop digging into sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden from former employee Tara Reade. Instead, the Times argued, some papers of...

    Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh argued that the principle of stare decisis has never required the court to uphold 'erroneous precedents.' In a case that might appear to have no bearing on the right to abortion, a U.S. Supreme Court justice may have signaled a willingness to overturn Roe v. Wade.In Ramos v. Louisiana, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that criminal defendants must be convicted by unanimous state juries, overturning a Louisiana murder conviction based on a 10-2 jury verdict. This decision overturns the court’s 1972 ruling in Apodaca v. Oregon, which held there is no right to a...

    The Washington Post turned a blind eye for weeks The Washington Post, an enormously influential and widely cited publication, fought the good fight. For five solid weeks, it was able to pretend that Tara Reade’s sexual-assault allegations against Joe Biden either didn’t exist or were so illegitimate as to be unworthy of any serious attention. For five solid weeks, The Post was able to wait and see which way the political winds might ultimately blow, and to give Ms. Reade some time to realize that she was fighting a losing battle and should just go away.    Consider a few remarkable...

    I predicted earlier this week that the media would help Joe Biden get out of the corroborated charges made by Tara Reade regarding alleged inappropriate behavior in the 1990s when Reade was on Biden's Senate staff. I predicted he'd have a pre-recorded, sit-down interview with a friendly, female journalist with Jill Biden by his side. I was wrong about Mrs. Biden's presence, but the rest of the set up was as predicted. I also predicted that after the interview, Biden and his apologists would proclaim the matter settled, any further questions would be out of line since Mr. Biden had...

    Many on the left have accused originalism of being nothing but a cover for conservatives’ preferred policy outcomes, but Vermeule’s proposal illustrates how restrained originalists have been. “The Republic” often alarms first-time readers. Not only is Plato’s dialogic style foreign to us, the character of Socrates makes bizarre and even wicked proposals as he outlines a supposed ideal polity, such as a communism not only of property, but also of wives and children. Many readers, including some philosophers, have taken Plato literally and seriously, and therefore condemned him as a proto-totalitarian. Something similar seems to have happened in response to...

    The media and Democrats were enraged when Brett Kavanaugh warned that their unethical behavior against him might have consequences. They should have listened. Brett Kavanaugh was a very difficult Supreme Court nominee for liberals to oppose. He had a stellar reputation, an impeccable record, and a genial disposition. While members of the Resistance held a protest on the steps of the Supreme Court minutes after President Trump announced him as the pick to replace retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, their early efforts to keep him off the bench showed little promise. All that changed in mid-September 2018, when the Washington...

    Five weeks and 19 interviews later, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has not been asked directly about the substantiated sexual assault accusations from Tara Reade. Joe Biden might not be guilty. But the corporate media is.Here’s what we know. We know Tara Reade alleges that in 1993 her boss, Sen. Joe Biden, sexually assaulted her, and we know that five people have thus far corroborated her claim she told them about this at the time. We know that, and we know that Vice President Biden denies committing sexual assault, and further, denies his office even received a complaint.Next, we...
