    Special Counsel Jack Smith suggested he ignore the Supreme Court if it reverses the obstruction statute this summer. The US Supreme Court recently announced it will hear oral arguments in Fischer v. United States and at issue is statute 18 USC §1512(c)(2): Whoever corruptly— (1) alters, destroys, mutilates, or conceals a record, document, or other object, or attempts to do so, with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding; or (2) otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned...
  • Civil War-Era Law Upheld to Ban Abortion in Arizona

    04/10/2024 10:19:12 AM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 18 replies
    The Arizona Supreme Court has decided to uphold a Civil War-era law that bans abortion. A law on the books from 1864 is enforceable, according to Arizona judges. The year in which that law was passed, 1864, was before human chattel slavery was outlawed, and almost 50 years before Arizona was officially part of the United States. The law makes abortion a felony punishable by two to five years in prison. But the ban may be overturned at the polls in November. The 1864 law goes back into effect in 14 days.

    Forget Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It is Sonia Sotomayor who is the greatest liberal to sit on the supreme court in my adult lifetime. The first Latina to hold the position of justice, she has blazed a relentlessly progressive trail on the highest bench in the land.
  • Federal Judge Threatens to Punish Imprisoned J6ers by Adding Enhancements to Remaining Convictions if SCOTUS Reverses ‘Obstruction’ Statute

    The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision on Fischer v United States this summer which means hundreds of J6 cases could be upended. Biden’s corrupt DOJ has charged more than 300 J6ers with 18 USC §1512(c)(2). Additionally, two of the four charges against Trump in Jack Smith’s DC case are conspiracy to obstruct so the Supreme Court’s ruling could torpedo the special counsel’s case against Trump as well. Last week US Attorney from DC Matthew Graves fired a warning shot to the US Supreme Court – and J6ers serving time for 18 USC §1512(c)(2), the ‘obstruction’ statute pending...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 25, 2024 | Kaelan Deese
    The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the case of Nicholas Sandmann, a former Kentucky high school student who sued several news outlets for allegedly libelous coverage of his viral encounter with a Native American activist in 2019. Justices decided not to take up Sandmann’s petition against several outlets, including ABC News, The New York Times, Gannett, and others, leaving in place a lower court’s dismissal of the massive libel suit. The former student argued he was defamed by reports about his confrontation with Native American activist Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., five years ago....
  • Supreme Court Unanimously Rules Against Government In ‘No Fly List’ Case

    MSN ^ | 03/24/24 | Charlotte White
    The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that a man’s lawsuit challenging his placement on the federal government’s “No Fly List” can proceed, finding that the government did not prove the case was moot after removing him from the list. Yonas Fikre, a U.S. citizen, claimed the FBI unlawfully placed him on the list and pressured him to become an informant. While the government argued Fikre’s removal meant the case was moot, the Court rejected this view, allowing the merits of the allegations to be examined in lower courts
  • Supreme Court backs Texas law on illegal border crossings; Mexico condemns Texas law, refuses to accept deportations from the state.

    So, big news hit the headlines recently – the Supreme Court gave Texas the green light to enforce a new law aimed at tackling illegal border crossings from Mexico. But guess what? Mexico isn’t too thrilled about it. Let’s break it down: Texas has this law that lets the police nab and detain folks crossing the border illegally. It was supposed to kick in earlier, but the Supreme Court hit the pause button for a bit to think it over. Now, Mexico’s not having any of it. They’re saying, “Nope, we won’t take back anyone Texas sends over.” Their top...

    A federal appeals court late Tuesday night put Texas’ controversial immigration law back on hold, hours after the Supreme Court had cleared the way for the state to begin enforcing the measure. In a brief order, a three-judge panel at the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to wipe away a previous ruling from a different panel that had temporarily put the law, which would allow state officials to arrest and detain people they suspect of entering the country illegally, into effect. The panel of judges that issued Tuesday night’s order is already set to hear arguments Wednesday...

    Former Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer criticized his colleagues on the high court over their interpretation of the Constitution. The former justice, who retired in 2022, is set to release a book titled Reading the Constitution: Why I Chose Pragmatism, Not Textualism, laying out an argument critiquing the methods used by many Republican-appointed justices to interpret the Constitution. “Recently, major cases have come before the court while several new justices have spent only two or three years at the court,” Breyer said in the book, according to the New York Times. “Major changes take time, and there are many years...
  • Supreme Court allows Texas to enforce immigration law

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to enforce a contentious new law that gives local police the power to arrest migrants. The conservative-majority court, with three liberal justices dissenting, rejected an emergency request made by the Biden administration, which said states have no authority to legislate on immigration, an issue the federal government has sole authority over.

    Well, everything is racist according to the left, so really, are you surprised? The Washington Supreme Court issued two orders on Monday endorsing "alternative pathways" for individuals to pursue a legal career, effectively eliminating the requirement of passing the bar exam. Justifying its decision, the court claimed that the traditional bar exam “blocks marginalized groups from entering the practice of law” and even went so far as to accuse the bar exam of having “racism and classism written into the test itself.” The Post Millennial:The Bar Licensure Task Force, chaired by Washington Supreme Court Justice Raquel Montoya-Lewis and Seattle University...

    Imagine being not yet seventy years old and being told, not exactly politely, that in the interest of liberalism you have to be put out to pasture. When that message went out to Justice Stephen Breyer in 2021, he was at least over eighty when the leftists told him his time was up on the Supreme Court. With Justice Sonia Sotomayor, despite being over ten years younger than Breyer when he retired, Josh Barro writing for The Atlantic announced that it was time for her to withdraw in the interest of liberalism as you can see in "Sonia Sotomayor Should...
  • Texas grandmother thrown in jail after criticizing local government. Now her case heads to Supreme Court'They wanted to punish me': Ex-city councilwoman hopes SCOTUS case will protect free speech rights

    A small-town political feud that wound up with a Texas city council member behind bars is headed to the Supreme Court this week, where justices will consider whether the councilwoman can sue city leaders for politically motivated retaliation. "I would never believe that I would be going to the Supreme Court," Sylvia Gonzalez told Fox News. "I would never believe that I was in jail either." "In America, we don't arrest our critics," IJ attorney Anya Bidwell said. Gonzalez's story began in 2019 when the then-72-year-old retiree won a seat on the Castle Hills City Council. She said constituents had...

    This morning the Supreme Court held oral argument in the case that is now styled Murthy v. Missouri. C-SPAN has posted audio of the oral argument here. The case arises from the government’s “encouragement” of censorship by the social media platforms, as documented in the Twitter Files. We have followed the case as it has wended its way through the district court to the Fifth Circuit and then to the Supreme Court. We (I) have been pulling for the plaintiffs. The Supreme Court has already entered an order staying the narrowed preliminary injunction that had been fashioned by the Fifth...
  • JUST IN: Kari Lake and Mark Finchem Take Lawsuit to Ban Voting Machines to The US Supreme Court with New Allegations of Illegal Machine Certification

    Kari Lake and Mark Finchem appealed their lawsuit to ban the use of electronic voting machines to the United States Supreme Court on Thursday. This comes after the 2022 election, where 60% of the voting machines were reportedly programmed to fail on election day, causing mass voter disenfranchisement and up to four-hour-long lines for Republican in-person voters. The filing includes “new allegations,” some of which were previously mentioned in Kari Lake’s lawsuit to overturn the stolen election, including: First, Maricopa did not conduct the required L&A testing, on which the district court relied to find the risk of election interference...
  • White farmers spark Supreme war over racist Biden program'Ineligible for debt relief because she is Caucasian'

    A new petition for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court poses an interesting question: Can the feds set up a Constitution-violating racist program, hand out money under it, and then when a lawsuit challenges it, drop the program and say the case is over? That's the substance of a fight that has developed because of Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan Act that designated $4 billion to forgive loans to farmers, but excluded white farmers. The scheme, in fact, was set up to cancel loans for non-white farmers, plus give them a cash-back bonus of 20% more than they borrowed. Actually,...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/05/2024 | Matthew G. Andersson
    It is instructive for all Americans that the U.S. Supreme Court just ruled unanimously in President Trump’s favor, concerning what should have been an obvious legal fact in constitutional law. The Court asserted that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment (an “insurrection” disqualification, originally aimed at post–Civil War Confederate candidates who might otherwise have had differing views on whether, or from whom, there was an “insurrection”) is not within the purview of the states and is, rather, a potential congressional judgment. The more conservative justices also noted that such a potential latitude of Congress is still subject to judicial review,...

    Joshua 1:9 (King James Version) Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. The Supreme Court decision proved once again the Communist Party will break every law and tell any law to maintain their iron grip on America. Everyone knew it was going to be a win although very few could predict it would be a 9-0 win while the Leftists wail as if their favorite cat just died by a hit and run driver. Perhaps you should...

    Fox News host and former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) urged former President Trump not to take a victory lap after the Supreme Court ruled Monday that states cannot bar him from the ballot in this fall’s presidential election. “I would encourage him to do something that he doesn’t often do, which is show humility because there are other decisions that are coming that he may not agree with,” Gowdy said on Fox. “I don’t think he’s going to win the presidential immunity case before the court.” Gowdy’s comments were first highlighted by Mediaite.The court voted Monday, by unanimous decision, to...

    VIDEOLook at the CRAZY EYES of Colorado Secretary Of State Jena Griswold as she reacts to the Supreme Court knocking down her crackpot idea by a UNANIMOUS vote for keeping President Trump off her state's ballot. If her CRAZY EYES look familiar it is because they are the same CRAZY EYES we have seen on other extreme fanatics. And if CRAZY EYES Griswold is this fanatic, you can expect her to do everything in her power to "fortify" the election this year in Colorado. Legal or NOT.
