    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...

    The US Supreme Court on Monday ordered the dismissal of a pair of lawsuits accusing former President Trump of illegally profiting from his presidency, after several foreign and state government officials patronized his properties - including the Trump International Hotel in Washington, located a few blocks from the White House.The plaintiffs included hotels, restaurants and the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia, and accused Trump of violating the Constitution's two emoluments clauses, according to Bloomberg Law, which notes that "One clause bars a president from accepting benefits from foreign governments without congressional consent, while the other bars...
  • Constitutional Amendment to Prevent Supreme Court Packing Resurfaces

    Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) introduced legislation on Jan. 22 to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit the Supreme Court to nine justices, the numerical cap that has been in place for well over a century, in order to prevent Democrats from enlarging the court’s membership. Amending the Constitution is no easy task. The amendment bill must pass by two-thirds supermajority in both houses of Congress and then be ratified by three-quarters of the states, or 38 of the 50 states, to become part of the Constitution. The move comes after then-President Donald Trump’s conservative constitutionalist nominee, Amy Coney Barrett,...

    As Democrats plunge ahead with a post-term impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, a key question remains: Will Chief Justice Roberts take the case? Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky says he won’t — making the exercise “a fake, partisan impeachment,” the lawmaker told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Friday. Paul claimed Roberts has “privately said he’s not supposed to come unless it’s an impeachment of the president.”

    The new president availed himself of Seila Law v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.The U.S. Supreme Court's June 2020 decision in Seila Law v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was not warmly received by certain progressive activists. "The far right just scored a victory," announced Marge Baker of People for the American Way. "Powerful corporate forces have turned their losing political case into a rigged constitutional one," intoned Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D–R.I.). "They've moved fringe legal theories into mainstream conservative legal thought." At issue in the case was the legality of the single-director structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Although...
  • Media Claim Abortion Drug in SCOTUS Ruling Ends ‘Pregnancy'

    Abortion ends a human life, but Americans wouldn’t know that from reading recent news reports. Instead, many in the media claim, abortion drugs “terminate pregnancies” and “expel” the “contents” of a woman’s uterus. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court granted the Food and Drug Administration’s request to reinstate a federal requirement that says women must obtain an abortion drug from a health care provider in person rather than by mail. As media outlets from CNN to NPR raced to report the news, their pieces stood out because of their language – words carrying abortion euphemisms. The court decision centered on the...

    The United States Supreme Court isn't merely one of America's most important institutions, it is also one of the most important elements of our constitutional system of checks and balances, not to mention the gold standard of judicial independence and integrity on the planet. Despite its judicial and governmental prowess, Democrats—more aptly radical Marxists—have made clear their intention to politicize and co-opt the Supreme Court for their own selfish political gain through a strategy known as "court packing." Democrats' current attempts to abuse the Court are by no means the first of their kind. In fact, Democrat President Franklin Delano...

    NEW ELECTION EMERGENCY APPLICATION TO JUSTICE ALITO: Can A Clerk Overrule The Supreme Court?Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2020 by naturalborncitizen But first a recap of previous failed legal maneuvers concerning the election…Somebody please tell President Trump’s election lawyers there’s a federal statute – 3 U.S.C. § 1 – which requires all elections for Presidential Electors to be completed on Election Day. Then tell his lawyers – and the lawyers for Texas who failed to cite it properly – that 3 U.S.C. § 2 only applies when 3 U.S.C. § 1 is violated. Texas failed to mention 3 U.S.C....

    When the Supreme Court of Chief Justice John Roberts rejected the lawsuit of the state of Texas and other states that said the election rules in contested battleground states like Pennsylvania were unconstitutionally written, SCOTUS ruled that it could not prove Texas ot its citizens suffered harm by the processes by which another state selects electors and writes election rules. This of course is nonsense. Supreme Court Justices are like field goal kickers. They have one job. In the case of SCOTUS, it is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. We are a union...
  • Don’t Look for Team Biden to Favor Framers’ Constitution

    Some of Mr. Biden’s supporters believe that he will be the most “Progressive” of presidents, and it is likely that Barack Obama’s vice president will bring back into the federal government the policies that characterized Mr. Obama’s term. If this is the case, the need for vigilance for the next four years will be even more profound, because, as David Bernstein showed in his remarkable book on the Obama years, the Obama/Biden administration was the most “Lawless” in memory. Professor Bernstein argued persuasively that Mr. Obama flouted the Constitution’s allocation of governmental powers, as more of President Obama’s actions were...

    A leak from inside the US Supreme Court alleges that Chief Justice John Roberts insisted that the Texas lawsuit contesting the election results in several swing states not be heard due to the potential for civil rioting that would likely follow a decision to toss fraudulent votes. "It's a 'no win' situation," Roberts was reported to have argued. "Whether the amount of fraud was sufficient to change the election outcome is less important than the safety of our urban areas. As we saw over the summer, multiple cities were plagued by civil unrest sparked by the death of one man...

    A spokesperson for the U.S. Supreme Court disputed a report that claimed Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts shouted at the eight other justices in a room in the high court, urging them not to take up the Texas election lawsuit against four other key states. As guidance, the court “has been conducting its conferences remotely by phone since March when the building closed due to the pandemic,” a Supreme Court spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email on Friday in response to a question about the claim. The statement contradicts what a GOP Texas elector, Matt Patrick, said earlier...

    You hear some awfully funny things online. On Monday, we heard a benediction pronounced after the Michigan Electors committed treason. Later, while Texas was casting their Electoral Votes, we heard mention of Chief Justice Roberts screaming at his fellow SCOTUS judges. No! Say it cannot be! Judges are above politics. Irreproachable. Job security for life. Independent. Or are they!? The source of the intel is an unnamed clerk in the Supreme Court of the United States who heard-what-he-heard last Friday when the Justices retired to deliberate on whether or not to take Texas' case against the embattled states so obviously...

    Ever since ACB joined the Supreme Court, there's been a dramatic reversal of the treatment of religious worship in the coronavirus era. Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn v. New York was the first real pushback, but the SCOTUS majority is using it to carve out more territory for religious freedom in two cases, one involving the High Plains Harvest Church in Colorado, and the other involving a Catholic church and Orthodox synagogue in New Jersey. The Colorado case is interesting because one of the arguments involved the different treatment accorded to Black Lives Matter riots. In addition to these...

It likely was the...
