    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona state Rep. Bret Roberts abruptly announced Wednesday he's resigning from the Legislature, just two weeks after he filed to run for reelection. The Republican from Maricopa said stepping down is what's best for his family. His resignation is effective Sept. 30. “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve with you, the Republican caucus, and the entire House,” he wrote in a brief message addressed to his constituents and colleagues and posted on Twitter. “I wish you all nothing but the best going forward and am confident that the House, will continue to do...

    For the first time in a generation, there are six conservative justices on the Supreme Court. In time, this sextet will incrementally push the Court to the right. Yet, three of them are already sounding an alarm. Twice this term, Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch warned that Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett lack backbone. In an excessive force case, the conservative trio wrote that the two newest Justices were "unwilling to...bear[] the criticism that" denying the prisoner's appeal "would inevitably elicit." And in a religious liberty case, the Thomas-3 charged that Kavanaugh and Barrett lacked...

    WASHINGTON – Two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are asking the Justice Department to provide information about where Supreme Court justices have traveled, asserting that the disclosure would improve transparency on the high court.“The justices of our highest court are subject to the lowest standards of transparency of any senior officials across the federal government,” wrote Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and John Kennedy, R-La., in a June 4 letter made public Tuesday.

    For Clarence Thomas, any chance he might become chief justice has long since passed. But at 72, he is coming into his own. For circumstances have now made it as plausible to speak of the Thomas court as the Roberts court. The trigger was the replacement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Justice Amy Coney Barrett. This move gave conservatives a 6-3 majority, depriving Chief Justice John Roberts of the ability to swing decisions to the liberal side—unless he manages to bring Brett Kavanaugh along with him. *** Today the changes on the court have left Justice Thomas uniquely empowered....

    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...

    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...

    October 2010 marked the 24th anniversary of Justice Antonin Scalia's appointment to the US Supreme Court. Well known for his sharp wit as well as his originalist approach to the Constitution, Justice Scalia consistently asks more questions during oral arguments and makes more comments than any other Supreme Court justice. And, according to one study, he also gets the most laughs from those who come to watch these arguments. In September 2010, Justice Scalia spoke with UC Hastings law professor Calvin Massey.

    Chief Justice John Roberts has faced many accusations over the years, particularly in the last few weeks as his weak leadership of the Supreme Court has seemed to be the primary roadblock to President Trump correcting the fraudulent 2020 election. He’s been accused of working to block the President’s reelection, of traveling to Epstein Island, and of a few other things. Most of the accusations have been debunked.A new accusation comes from attorney Lin Wood. The famed lawyer who has filed multiple lawsuits challenging the 2020 election has not been shy about sharing conspiracy theories, and this one definitely falls...

    The Deep State Democrat globalists never imagined Trump would fight this hard against the massive election fraud that made Biden the pretend president. The Deep State is freaking out, and this is why so many on both sides are calling for Trump to give up. He’s NOT going to simply give into massive fraud. Newman says, “I think the Deep State is very, very concerned about what President Trump might be thinking. The President is clearly promising to fight.

    The Blaze -Last week, CNN ran a series of “exclusive” stories that revealed the Supreme Court’s private deliberations over President Donald Trump’s taxes. But how did CNN reporter Joan Biskupic get a hold of such sensitive information? On the latest episode of “LevinTV,” BlazeTV host Mark Levin argued that Chief Justice John Roberts is likely the leaker. Levin told his followers, “The chief justice of the United States — is enormously political, and I believe he is a leaker,” adding, “If there’s leaking going on, and there clearly is, one justice against another, it is a huge problem.” Levin referenced...

    A report from a Supreme Court staffer is indicating that Chief Justice John Roberts folded on the landmark Texas election fraud case because he was scared of pushback from left-wing terror groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. State representative Matt Patrick of District 32 relayed the testimony during an impassioned plea on the Texas House floor for political figures across the nation to fight the vote steal. “He said the justices, as they always do, went into a closed room to discuss cases they’re taking and to debate,” Roberts said. “When the Texas case was brought up, he heard...
