    Last night John rendered his "Verdict: The New York Times blew the story." The "story" was the testimony of five federal judges -- Magistrate Judge Allan Kornblum and four former FISA court judges -- on Senator Specter's proposed revision of the FISA statute. According to yesterday's New York Times story by Eric Lichtblau: In a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the secretive court, known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, several former judges who served on the panel...voiced skepticism at a Senate hearing about the president's constitutional authority to order wiretapping on Americans without a court order.

    CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Friday on “Anderson Cooper 360” that the lawsuit against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) attempting to disqualify her from running for reelection over her comments and tweets surrounding the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 would not be successful. Cooper said, “Do you think the case brought against Greene would be successful?”

    Voting to advance Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be the main event when the Senate Judiciary Committee meets Monday. But the committee will also be sending to the Senate floor several other federal judge nominees, as Democrats push to keep the judiciary confirmation machinery cranking while Jackson dominated the spotlight. There are 108 current or expected lower court vacancies now pending, 84 of them openings for which a nominee has not yet been named. The general time crunch is being further complicated by the procedural tactics Republicans can employ to slow a nominee’s path to confirmation, in...

    Once upon a time, a Supreme Court nomination was largely noncontentious. The general approach of the Senate’s advise-and-consent mandate was that the primary determination of who should earn a seat on the bench was determined by voters in the most recent presidential election. Nominees were often simply confirmed on a voice vote, sent by the Senate to lifetime appointments across the street with little debate. As you probably noticed, that is no longer the case. Not only are voice votes extinct, so are broadly bipartisan confirmation votes. The last Supreme Court nominee to have received more than 70 votes was...

    Like Christine, I want to preserve my anonymity, which is why I am shopping this story only to the most discrete members of my own party on the Senate Judiciary Committee. And working with the most trustworthy opposition researchers on my side of the aisle. I have retained as my lead attorney an activist who serves with various nonprofit NGOs funded by international philanthropist Vladimir Putin. Let’s call my attorney “Grigori,” for the moment. All fact inquiries should be directed to Grigori. I may or may not choose to tell my story publicly, depending on the advice of my personal...
  • FEDERAL JUDGES’ FINANCIAL CONFLICTS ADD TO MISTRUST OF THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM

    A recent Wall Street Journal investigation found that over the last decade, 131 federal judges failed to recuse themselves in hundreds of cases that involved their own financial interests. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts, in his year-end review of the federal judiciary, said the report’s findings indicate a “serious problem of inadequate ethics training,” especially for those judges who had numerous violations. The conflicts of interest primarily include judges hearing cases involving their or their families’ stock holdings, which ultimately tainted some 685 court cases. Given the rising concerns that the federal judiciary is becoming increasingly politicized,...

    The Montana judiciary is in deep trouble. The Wall Street Journal picked up on a local story that has been exploding since last April but has just now started to get national attention. In April, the Montana judiciary was caught red-handed lobbying against bills that would lead to more accountability for judges. This comes right on the heels of the scathing Wall Street Journal report that found hundreds of judges refusing to recuse themselves from hearing cases in which they had financial investments — a story that reached even the Supreme Court — as the judiciary is being exposed. ......

    CLEVELAND — We know that “vaccines” are the leading cause of coincidences. But the injections are also related to a lot of karma in 2021.We wrote a story in July about Ohio judges mandating mRNA and viral vector DNA injections as a condition of probation at sentencing for criminal defendants. Franklin County (Columbus) judge David Matia sentenced at least three people to injections at the time of publishing. Said county issued a vaccine mandate that went into effect last week. All 1,400 Franklin County employees were required to show proof of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson injection last week,...

    Biden Judges Will Eviscerate Religious FreedomCan the First Amendment survive under this regime?“I think we’re seeing a common DNA run through the Obama [judicial] nominees, and that’s the ACLU chromosome,” observed Jeff Sessions, then-senator from Alabama, in 2009. Sessions was right. Obama stacked the courts with ACLU-style secularists. The First Amendment took a beating under their misrule.Obama’s first nominee to the courts, David Hamilton, was an ACLU board member whose previous rulings included telling the Indiana legislature that its prayers could mention “Allah” but not Jesus Christ. Another typical Obama appointment to the courts was Michael Urbanski, a Virginia judge...

    Thousands of supporters of far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro have descended on Brazil's economic and political capitals, hoping to rally behind the embattled president, sparking fears of a military coup.
