  • Walgreens helped fuel San Francisco’s opioid crisis, judge rules

    08/10/2022 8:32:53 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 30 replies ^ | August 10, 2022 | By Meryl Kornfield
    U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer said Walgreens “substantially contributed” to one of the nation’s deadliest public health crises by not stopping suspicious orders and dispensing drugs that were diverted for illicit use, causing a public nuisance in a major city that is among the hardest hit by addiction and overdoses. Walgreens, responsible for shipping nearly 1 out of every 5 oxycodone and hydrocodone pills distributed nationwide during the height of the opioid crisis, was the only drug company sued by San Francisco that did not settle, going to trial in April. “Walgreens has regulatory obligations to take reasonable steps to...

    Liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has announced that he will step down from the high court, effective Thursday at noon. Breyer, who notified President Joe Biden back in January that he would retire at the end of the current term, released a letter on Wednesday stating that he will officially retire after the Court issues its final opinions of the term on Thursday. “The Court has announced that tomorrow, beginning at 10 a.m., it will hand down all remaining opinions ready during this Term. Accordingly, my retirement from active service under the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 371(b)...

    Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), who famously refused to give the last Democratic Supreme Court nominee a Senate hearing or vote, on Thursday said he’s ready to give President Biden’s pick to the high court “a fair look.” While some conservatives are already taking shots at Biden for pledging to consider only a Black woman to replace retiring liberal Justice Stephen Breyer, McConnell is keeping his powder dry until the nominee is known.

    I had an interesting experience at the car repair shop this weekend. Nothing big; it was just due for an oil change... but I was able to include one of the services I can't usually use: the free tire rotation. (I usually buy tires one at a time, thanks to potholes and nails, but for once, I actually replaced them as a set, so they could be rotated). No such luck. I couldn't get the rotation this time, because we appear to have lost the wheel lock key. That's not such a big deal in itself; I can do without...

    Illinois Review ^ | February 28, AD 2022 | John F Di Leo
    Once Associate Justice Stephen Breyer was successfully hounded into announcing his retirement (and we all wonder if the full story of that announcement will ever be told), Joe Biden announced that he would only be considering black females for the appointment. Mr. Biden chose a tumultuous week to announce that name – a week in which Russia invaded Ukraine, energy prices hit new records, the stock market tumbled, and the news was finally starting to circulate that indictments were finally coming on the Obama-Clinton era “Russian collusion” hoax against President Trump. When the Biden-Harris regime most needed a distraction from...

    Ryan even testified on Brown’s behalf when she was nominated to the district court in 2012, offering his “unequivocal” endorsement of her qualifications in recommending her for the bench.“Our politics may differ, but my praise for Ketanji’s intellect, for her character, for her integrity is unequivocal,” Ryan said at her December 2012 nomination hearing. “She’s an amazing person, and I favorably recommend her consideration.” -snip- “We’re family, by marriage,” Ryan explained in the 2012 hearing. “Her brother and sister-in-law, who are my brother and sister-in-law, William and Dana Jackson, are here with us as well today.”
  • Joe Biden Makes Pick For Supreme Court, Taps Paul Ryan’s Relative Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson For SCOTUS

    President Joe Biden has made his choice to replace Justice Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court, according to multiple media reports. Biden will announce today that he will nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, to the court. If confirmed, Jackson would become the first Black woman to serve on the court. She is 51. That would make her the second-youngest justice on the current court. Justice Amy Coney Barrett turned 50 in January. She would also be the first justice since Thurgood Marshall who served as a longtime defense...

    Is it time for Politico founding editor John F. Harris to don a jester's costume? A week ago we saw the spectacle of Harris recommending that Joe Biden reverse his sinking political fortunes by trash talking. And on Thursday, he took yet more silly sauce to urge Chief Justice John Roberts, despite being sixteen years younger than the retiring Stephen Breyer, follow suit by no later than this summer.
  • It Isn't About Racism; It's About Ideology

    United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer announced his retirement last week. (Or, more accurately, his announcement was leaked by resident Joe Biden's Chief of Staff Ron Klain, months before Breyer planned to announce it himself.) Breyer is part of the Court's liberal faction, so his replacement, named by a Democrat president, is unlikely to change the outcome of cases. Even so, Biden wasted no time proclaiming that he intended to make good on a campaign promise to appoint the first Black female Supreme Court justice. The last person who should be bragging about his commitment to advancing the cause...

    Thursday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) pushed back against criticism from the GOP over President Joe Biden’s announcement that he would nominate a black woman to replace outgoing-U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. Durbin argued on CNN’s “New Day” that both former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump announced they would nominate a woman to the Supreme Court and noted the same people upset about Biden’s plan to nominate a black woman have never voted for a black nominee.

    When Stephen Breyer was 4 years old, and his father, Irving Breyer, was serving as legal counsel for the San Francisco Board of Education, the San Francisco Examiner ran a story headlined "Court Test Looms in S.F. Student Beating." "The flogging of Robert Troutfelt, a 13-year-old student at Marina Junior High School, showed every indication yesterday of becoming a 'cause celebre,' determining the status of corporal punishment in local schools," said the story. Two days before that, on March 18, 1943, the Examiner had laid out the alleged details of the case. "Upon complaint of George T. Troutfelt, indignant father...

Biden’s opposition to and multiple filibusters of the nomination of Janice Rogers Brown to the federal bench by then-President George W. Bush in 2003 and 2005 and remarked that “race and gender, they only count if you’re thought to be a committed judicial activist, judicial leftist.” Ingraham said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:50] “I’m thinking back on the nomination of what would’ve been another first,...

    VIDEOWho better to give an ethics lecture to an aspiring Supreme Court justice than "10 for the Big Guy" Joe Biden? As you can see, Biden as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was concerned about ethical breaches during his ethics lecture to Stephen Breyer at his 1994 confirmation hearing. For more about Biden and the subject of ethics check out the many ethical breaches contained in Hunter Biden's laptop. Whole countries such as China, Russia, and Ukraine are very familiar with Joe Biden and ethical breaches.

    Chief Justice John Roberts used his year-end report on New Year’s Eve to denounce the threats being made against the Court and its members by Democratic politicians and groups, including threats to pack the Court to force an immediate liberal majority. Roberts referred to such threats as efforts to exercise “inappropriate political influence” on the Court in contravention of our constitutional values and traditions. We have been discussing the ramped up threats from Democratic leaders that the Court will either vote with the liberal justices on key issues or face “consequences,” including court packing. Recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.),...

    President Joe Biden and media figures are not the only persons who are “angry” after a jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all charges. Despite a jury with the same racial makeup convicting the defendants in Georgia in the Arbery case, many have denounced the entire legal system as racist. It does that matter that there was evidence supporting Rittenhouse’s claim of self-defense that was largely missing from prior coverage of the case. Now students and groups at Arizona State University are planning a rally and demanding that Rittenhouse be expelled. With leaders like President Biden calling Rittenhouse a “white supremacist”...
