  • Supreme Court Sides With Christian Student in College Free Speech Case

    Conservative Brief ^ | 5/10 | Martin Walsh
    With Democrats in control of Congress and Joe Biden in the White House, Republicans are battling multiple fronts to uphold the Constitution. And conservatives just secured a massive victory at the U.S. Supreme Court regarding free speech. The Supreme Court ruled in an 8-1 decision that a Georgia college’s speech code policy violated the First Amendment and that a student who was harmed by the policy can seek damages. Justice Clarence Thomas issued the opinion of the court, writing that nominal damages claims are enough to establish standing to sue for a constitutional violation. Chief Justice John Roberts was the...

    A group of House Democrats were expected to announce a bill later in the day that would expand the nation’s top court from nine seats to 13, with members upset that six of the current members were nominated by Republican presidents, including three Trump appointees. Asked if she would commit to bringing the bill to a vote, Pelosi said, “no.”
  • Bad news in Supreme Court’s ruling on behalf of religious liberty: The 5-4 Decision is Not the Only Cause for Concern

    It was good to see the Supreme Court rule yet again in favor of religious liberty in the latest California case to reach the nation’s highest court. Yet the fact that the ruling was only 5-4, not to mention some of the reasoning in the dissenting opinion, gives real cause for concern. This should not have been a close vote at all. Instead, it should have been a slam dunk for religious freedoms. As reported on Forbes, “The Supreme Court ruled by a 5-4 margin late Friday that California's coronavirus-related restrictions on gathering in private homes violated constitutional rights on...

    Donald Trump is speaking out against packing the Supreme Court with more justices as some liberals want, suggesting it would a fitting punishment for a court that failed to seriously consider his election challenges. Trump also goes after Joe Biden directly for his new commission to “reform” the highest court in the land, which obviously means advocating that it should be packed with radical new justices.

    The court’s unsigned order in Tandon v. Newsom signifies the reemergence of religious liberty as a valued jurisprudential principle to the Supreme Court.On Friday, for the fifth time the U.S. Supreme Court slapped down a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision upholding anti-religious COVID restrictions established by California’s embattled Gov. Gavin Newsom. The court’s unsigned order in Tandon v. Newsom represents much more than a victory for the plaintiffs who sought to host Bible studies in their homes on equal footing with analogous commercial activities: It signifies the reemergence of religious liberty as a valued jurisprudential principle to the Supreme...

    At what point do we all just admit that John Roberts is just one more abject failure by George W. Bush? – A year after it was implemented, the Supreme Court of the United States finally got around to declaring California Governor Gavin Newsom’s order shutting down church services in his state to be a violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution on Friday in a 5-4 decision. Not surprisingly, the supposedly “conservative” chief justice, the clearly-compromised John Roberts, sided with the three communists on the court in a dissenting opinion that basically says, hey, what First Amendment?
  • Supreme Court Allows Religious Speech Violation Lawsuit to Continue

    Washington D.C., Mar 8, 2021 / 05:00 pm MT (CNA).- The Supreme Court on Monday allowed a former college student to pursue a remedy against school officials who restricted when and where he could evangelize on campus. In Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski, the court ruled 8-1 that Chike Uzuegbunam, who was restricted from evangelizing on a public college campus, could sue school officials for nominal damages due to an alleged violation of his free speech. Justice Clarence Thomas authored the majority opinion, while Chief Justice John Roberts was the lone dissenter. “To demonstrate standing, the plaintiff must not only establish an...
  • SCOTUS, 8-1: You Better Believe Students Can Sue Colleges Over “Speech Zone” First Amendment Violations

    That gasp heard after this ruling dropped comes from every college and university with a “free speech zone” and policies that impose heckler’s vetoes. Plaintiffs suing over restrictions on speech and religious expression on campus only need to establish “nominal damages” to gain standing, the Supreme Court ruled in an 8-1 decision, not necessarily actual damages. That opens up a vast new field of litigation that attorneys all across the country will rush to meet. The 8-1 ruling in Uzuegbunam v Preczewski from Justice Clarence Thomas does not actually settle the case in favor of the students, but the writing...

    What a dark day for America. Democrats are now allowed to make any changes to election law whenever they feel necessary without consequence. The Supreme Court also threw out Attorney Lin Wood’s election challenge without comment. The Supreme Court turned down EVERY SINGLE election case this year without comment. What a tragedy. It was the Trump Wisconsin case that was dismissed this morning.

    It wasn’t an earth-shattering Monday morning when it came to Supreme Court orders, but court watchers may have noticed that the justices, without comment or explanation, jettisoned more lingering 2020 election challenges. It happened one week after SCOTUS cleared out several similar cases and the morning after Donald Trump repeated the “stolen” election lie to his loyal followers at CPAC. The Supreme Court rejected two mandamus petitions that Sidney Powell and other “Kraken”-aligned lawyers filed in late December. Those cases were stylized as In re Tyler Bowyer, et al. and In Re William Feehan. The cases took issue with the...

    Democrats have talked about packing the Supreme Court and seeking to end lifetime appointments of justices. Now a new commission under the Biden administration will be looking at the subject of court reforms. Indeed, President Joe Biden's White House is staffing the panel, which will examine reforms to the nation's top court and the federal judiciary, Politico reported. "The president remains committed to an expert study of the role and debate over reform of the court and will have more to say in the coming weeks," a White House official said in a statement.

    Chief Justice John Roberts’ refusal to preside over former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is raising questions about whether he views the first-of-its-kind proceedings as constitutional. The Supreme Court has been declining to comment when reached by The Post, as well as other outlets, on why its top jurist will not take part in the historic trial.

    We conservatives are pretty pissed off at John Roberts, Chief Justice. We remember the cartoon of a week or so ago when the United States Supreme Court was represented as three donkeys, four chickens, and, on the end of the row, two Americans: Justice Alito and Justice Thomas. But now our Democratic friends want to have a trial of Citizen Trump in the Senate. So I looked up the text of the Constitution online. It saysThe Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the...

    Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. If was previously reported that Roberts was eager to avoid presiding over the sham impeachment of Trump because he doesn’t want to become a political lightning rod. Senate President Pro Tempore, Pat Leahy (VT) will preside over the sham trial instead. The Hill reported: A Senate source said Leahy, a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is expected to preside at the trial. A spokesman for Leahy said the decision on presiding over the trial is up to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Minority Leader...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Jan 23 | by Andrew Mark Miller,
    Sen. Rand Paul says that a Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump that doesn’t include Chief Justice John Roberts would be an illegitimate process. “If Justice Roberts won’t preside over this sham ‘impeachment’ then why would it ever be considered legitimate?” the Kentucky Republican tweeted Friday. “Hint: It won’t be.” Later in the day, Paul joined Fox News’s Sean Hannity and elaborated on his impeachment stance, calling it an “illegitimate procedure” if Roberts isn’t there. “It isn’t a real impeachment. It’s going to be a fake, partisan impeachment,” Paul said about a process without Roberts. “The story is,”...

    As Democrats plunge ahead with a post-term impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, a key question remains: Will Chief Justice Roberts take the case? Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky says he won’t — making the exercise “a fake, partisan impeachment,” the lawmaker told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Friday. Paul claimed Roberts has “privately said he’s not supposed to come unless it’s an impeachment of the president.”

    Even in the bizarre world of QAnon conspiracy theorists, self-proclaimed deep state whistleblower Ryan Dark White has some crazy ideas. Like other QAnon promoters, White, who goes by the alias “John Here to Help” on Twitter, says a cabal of Satanic government bureaucrats is out to get Donald Trump. But he also claims those same nefarious actors have broken through to another dimension, where they discovered a sort of elemental spirit that is essentially the spirit of God, then packaged it into a machine named “Project Deep Space 9.” “It’s the voice of God,” White, 52, said in a 2019...
