  • Cancel culture comes for Justice Clarence Thomas over wife’s alleged tweets

    The far-left cancel culture is in full gear following the protest Wednesday at the U.S. Capital that got out of hand, even targeting Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who is no stranger to “high-tech lynchings.” Not that Thomas did anything. No, it’s because his wife allegedly expressed support for the tens of thousands of Trump supporters who came to DC to peacefully protest the results of an election that they believe to be illegitimate — never mind that Ginni Thomas tweeted her presumed remarks well before a smaller faction of protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol... ...To get a feel for...

    The pants are down and the truth is out "The Five" of the US Supreme Court turned out in reality to be only "The Two".

    On July 1, 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated Judge Clarence Thomas to replace the recently retired Justice Thurgood Marshall on the United States Supreme Court. Bush had made a compromise with the appointment of David Souter to replace longtime Justice, William Brennan. Now Bush knew he would face stiff opposition from the conservative wing of the GOP’s base if he didn’t nominate a judge with a strong background of conservative rulings. Four years earlier, Judge Robert Bork had his nomination by President Ronald Reagan ruthlessly sabotaged by Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy. The Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that...

    The nerves of the world frayed by an authoritarianism imposed on all of us by the forces of Big Government (All Major Established Political Parties Worldwide) and Big Business in the name of "health and safety" and the drama of politicians demanding money so we can elect US Senators who will supposedly defend our freedom from a "socialist, communist President Joe Biden".

    In the coming days, we will learn whether the Supreme Court will consider the merits of a Petition filed by the Republican Party of Pennsylvania to overturn a Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision that extended by three days the time within which mailed-in ballots in Pennsylvania could be received and counted as validly cast, among other things. The Trump campaign has sought to “intervene” in this case as a “party” by adopting the arguments made by the Petitioners On Monday, the Trump Campaign and two Pennsylvania voters filed a new lawsuit alleging that the ballot handling processes by which mailed-in ballots...
  • Flashback: Clarence Thomas Sees Right Through Joe Biden

    A scene from then Senator Joe Biden setting up Justice Thomas. If you’ll remember, Thomas was humiliated day after day by Biden and his cohorts until backed down with the “high tech lynching” speech. Once the present cases are at the SCOTUS, the Biden team will be before three former litigants of the Bush v. Gore case: Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett. Yep. All three of the DJT appointees were litigants in that case. Maybe Trump saw this coming?

    Campaign fundraising reports for Chellie Pingree, a former Democratic Senate candidate form Maine who now heads Common Cause, contain numerous infractions that may prompt an audit by the Federal Election Commission (FEC), The Hill has learned. The prospect of an election commission audit of Pingree has raised eyebrows among campaign finance experts and lawyers because the well-known government watchdog group spearheaded the passage of the landmark Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act last year. In fact, campaign finance regulation has become Common Cause's signature issue in recent years. Pingree, who last year lost her bid to oust Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), became...

    Democrats are terrified that the Supreme Court will return to deciding cases based on the clear meaning of the Constitution and the laws duly passed by Congress, rather than usurping power to ram through a leftist agenda in the name of preserving “rights” the Founders had never conceived of. Yet Americans aren’t exactly keen on handing unlimited power to nine super-legislators in black robes. In order to prevent a restoration of the Supreme Court’s proper role in America’s constitutional republic, Democrats have to hide their true intentions. They have to convince Americans that originalism does not mean a return to...

    Phony fears about Democrats are already leading to a pre-election spike in gun sales. And now the Supreme Court is poised to strike down the insufficient gun laws we already have. Barrett is an originalist who believes the Constitution must be interpreted exactly as the Founders intended. “Her views and how she thinks about the Second Amendment are not grounded in modern day reality,” Parsons told the Daily Beast. “She doesn’t give any attention to the cause of modern-day gun violence. Looking at the intent of the framers when there were no assault weapons is very inappropriate in an age...

    The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court would make her, if confirmed, the sixth Roman Catholic on the nine-person court. The Catholic Church has already contributed much to the United States’ legal system - including “the whole idea of law in general,” Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP, told CNA. “It’s the development of canon law (the law that governs the Church) that gives both the United States and Europe their modern notions of law..." While aspects of canon law were present since the early days of the Church, the use of the term ‘canon law’, as...

    Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., calling the judicial originalism "racist, sexist, homophobic and a fancy word for discrimination" is “patently irresponsible," said Sen. Mike Lee. The term "originalism" refers to a judicial interpretation of the law based on a literal reading. “Of all the irresponsible and inflammatory statements I’ve heard over the last few weeks, and I’ve heard some doozies, this might well be the worst,” Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday. “If you think about what he is really saying there, Sen. Markey has essentially said that our Constitution is racist. And [that] an effort to understand it,...

    As a libertarian, I think it’s reprehensible that liberals are against medical marijuana, and also reprehensible that they tried to raise the price of wheat at a time when millions of Americans were hungry. I hope Amy Coney Barrett will help overturn these rulings. In the 2005 U.S. Supreme Court case Gonzales v. Raich, the court ruled that a person who grew and smoked their own medical marijuana was engaging in interstate commerce, even thought the marijuana never crossed state lines, and no money changed hands.Voting for the majority were Stevens, Kennedy, Souter, Ginsburg, Breyer, and Scalia.The dissenters were O’Connor, Rehnquist,...

    Following a unanimous vote by the Judiciary Committee last week, the Senate just confirmed Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett to become the 115th Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court.“Having confirmed her to the Circuit Court in 2017 with bipartisan support, the Senate has already undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of her record,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said after President Trump made the nomination last month.Throughout Justice Barrett’s career, she has faithfully upheld our U.S. Constitution as written. The American Bar Association gave Barrett its highest rating, and she has an impressive track record...

    Co-host and network legal analyst Sunny Hostin said on Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View” now that the Republican-controlled Senate voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the Supreme Court no longer reflected the values of America. Hostin said, “I think her appointment is really going to change the way the Supreme Court is going to not only handle cases but the way the Supreme Court is going to look going forward. We all know the Republican Party has been packing the Supreme Court for decades. They’ve been packing the judiciary for decades. Trump has put now three justices on...

    Amy Coney Barrett was formally sworn in Tuesday as the Supreme Court’s ninth justice, her oath administered by Chief Justice John Roberts. Her first votes on the court could include two big topics affecting the man who appointed her. The court is weighing a plea from President Donald Trump to prevent the Manhattan district attorney from acquiring his tax returns. It is also considering appeals from the Trump campaign and Republicans to shorten the deadline for receiving and counting absentee ballots in the battleground states of North Carolina and Pennsylvania. It’s not certain Barrett will take part in any of...

Barrett will be recognized in a formal ceremony at a special sitting of the Supreme Court “at a later date.” The...
