  • Supreme Court Paves the Way for Deportation of Criminal Illegal Immigrants

    The Supreme Court on Thursday made it easier to deport illegal immigrants who have been convicted of a crime. Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the opinion for a 5-3 conservative majority that ruled against a Mexican citizen who entered the U.S. illegally and has lived in the country for 25 years. The man, Clemente Avelino Pereida, had been charged in Nebraska with using a fraudulent Social Security card to get a job and convicted under a state law against criminal impersonation. Illegal immigrants with criminal convictions who are facing deportation can ask the attorney general to allow them to remain in...

    Way back when Atlantic City was still Atlantic City (i.e., before the casinos arrived), I went there in hopes of finding a job so that I could remain there for the summer, and for a few hours was employed in one of those Boardwalk tourist-trap establishments that conducted "closed sale" auctions of objets d'art and other useful novelties. The auctioneer would solicit bids from the crowd that had entered, do a few freebie giveaways of some of the lowered-valued (and often mass-produced) items, and then close off the premises so that the people seated could bid upon the supposedly higher-valued...
  • Supreme Court faces landmark challenge on voting rights: This affects how the nation's lower courts resolve election disputes over ballot harvesting and polling locations

    The Supreme Court will hear arguments on Tuesday over a set of Arizona voting restrictions alleged to be racially discriminatory in a dispute that could set the most important voting rights precedent in nearly a decade. A potentially landmark ruling in the coming months may determine whether a suite of voting curbs working their way through GOP state legislatures across the country will survive legal scrutiny before the pivotal 2022 midterms and the next race for the White House. For the 6-3 conservative-majority court, the case marks a first chance to define the sweep of a key provision of the...

    Last Monday the United States Supreme Court refused to review the Pennsylvania 2020 Election cases. The court made the announcement on Monday morning. Justices Alito, Gorsuch, and Thomas dissented from the denial. On Monday, following their inaction from last week, the US Supreme Court rejected without comment or explanation, lingering 2020 election challenges by Attorney Sidney Powell in Arizona and Wisconsin. The Supreme Court refused to secure the integrity of the US elections. Later on Monday night Attorney Sidney Powell released a statement on the refusal of the court to hear the election fraud cases. Sidney Powell says the ruling...

    The editorial board at the Washington Examiner has a good analysis of a pending case before the Supreme Court that could turn some of the current debates over racism in America on its head. The subject at hand once again deals with the college admissions system in this country and the ham-handed way that many schools put their thumbs on the scales for all the wrong reasons. A lawsuit against Harvard is currently attempting to deal with that issue, particularly as it applies to one specific group of minorities. Through an arbitrary “rating system” used by the admissions board, Asian-American...

    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...
  • The Supreme Court Must Now End the 'Systemic Racism' of Affirmative Action

    As the nation's incipient racial reckoning following last May's killing of George Floyd morphed into the summer's riotous anarchy, the term "systemic racism" emerged as a fixture of our public discourse. What began as a somewhat arcane dialogue about purported police "militarization" and the "qualified immunity" legal doctrine soon took on a much more insidious tone. America, those like The New York Times' "1619 Project" fabulists told us, was rotten to its very core, blemished by the indelible taint of "systemic racism." In reality, as many courageously pointed out amid unprecedented "cancel culture" headwinds seeking to stifle all dissent, there...

    Heralded as a serious effort at 'equity' and 'inclusion,' Madison’s Police Civilian Oversight Board openly states that white people need not apply and are not welcome.When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. took to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 to deliver his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, he offered Americans, of all races, a compelling vision of a society no longer prejudiced by race. He envisioned a country where citizens are judged “by the content of their character” and not “the color of their skin.” But to listen to today’s most prominent “antiracists,” King’s dream is what...

    How quickly the news cycle churns. Four months ago, Ruth Bader Ginsburg had just passed, President Donald Trump was angling to replace her with Amy Coney Barrett, and liberal pundits who had spent the past four years warning about norms violations were sighing and saying actually the only way forward was for Joe Biden to pack the Supreme Court. In response, Biden pledged to appoint a commission to explore the issue—and then promptly forgot all about it. Bloomberg reports today on the expectations for that neglected group:

    The Supreme Court will hear five cases in reference to voting irregularities and broken state laws.They will hear cases brought by Sidney and Lin Wood on Michigan and Georgia. One case brought by Rep Mike Kelly, and two lawsuits filed in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania by former President Donald Trump’s campaign. The cases will be heard and the court will decide whether or no0t to consider the cases.If any of the cases are heard in the main session, they will be heard and decided in October. My guess is that no matter what the courts decide, it will not change the...
  • A Layman’s Guide to Penumbral Reasoning: The Supreme Court decided that the Supreme Court can declare that the Constitution means something it doesn’t say -- without concurrence of the citizenry

    American Thinker ^ | 02/15/2021 | John Green
    For over 50 years, constitutional scholars, and Supreme Court justices in particular, have used “penumbral reasoning” as one means to explain rulings expanding the Constitution of the United States. Law schools describe it as “reasoning by interpolation.” To put that in graphic terms, if you’re drawing a graph on paper, reasoning by interpolation allows you to extend the line off of the paper. I’m not a constitutional scholar, but I don’t think that’s necessary to see that this can lead to a very dark place. In legal terms, when a justice says they’re using penumbral reasoning, they’re admitting that the...

    ‘[I]f Hollywood may host a studio audience or film a singing competition while not a single soul may enter California’s churches, synagogues, and mosques, something has gone seriously awry.’In a Friday night 6-3 injunction responding to emergency petitions from two California churches, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion that California’s restrictions against worship services have gone too far. The court gave a short, unsigned opinion demanding California lift its restrictions on in-person, indoor church services while allowing California to keep banning singing and limiting attendance to 25 percent of church buildings’ capacity. The decision allows churches to present evidence...

    The Supreme Court on Friday listed several high-profile election lawsuits for consideration at its mid-February conference.The cases include challenges to the 2020 election from Trump-aligned lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly's Pennsylvania lawsuit. Nearly every lawsuit takes issue with the expanded use of mail-in ballots by many states.The decision came after the court declined to fast-track all election-related litigation in early January.In nearly every plea for expedition, lawyers backing former President Donald Trump told the court that if the cases were not heard before President Biden's inauguration, their success would be unlikely.But after...

    The Supreme Court is telling California it can't enforce a ban on indoor church services because of the coronavirus pandemic. The high court issued orders late Friday in two cases where churches had sued over coronavirus-related restrictions in the state. The high court said that for now, California can't ban indoor worship in areas where virus cases are surging, but it can cap indoor services at 25% of a building's capacity. The justices also declined to stop the state from barring singing and chanting at services. ... The court's action follows a decision in a case from New York late...
