Romney, Murkowski and Collins: Weak-kneed Republicans

Written by Robert Knight

What part of a judge being soft on child pornography offenders don’t they understand?

Having embraced every perversion under the sun and proclaimed it all good, Democrats in the U.S. Senate predictably voted 50-0 on Thursday to affirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

That would include Joe Manchin. The senator from West Virginia has stood in the gap against some of the Democrats’ worst schemes like “Build Back Better.”… Continue Reading

A Judge Who Can’t Say What a Woman Is Should Not Sit On Our Highest Court

Written by Luke Mueller

The confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson have been a relatively peaceful affair. In comparison to the ruthless attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Amy Coney Barrett, there has been relative civility surrounding the D.C Court of Appeals judge. While it is likely that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be confirmed, it is good to take a dive into her actual rulings and responses to questioning, not just her resume.… Continue Reading

What’s a Woman? There is a Price to be Paid For Telling The Truth

Written by Robert Knight

“I am not a biologist.”

With that, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ducked the puzzling question about what constitutes a human female adult.

It’s not that she doesn’t know. She is a woman.

It’s more likely she was pandering to the far-left fringe that controls the Democratic Party, Big Tech, academia and the media. To them, sex is entirely subjective. We are supposed to cheer as little boys don dresses and big-shouldered, athletic men destroy competitors in women’s NCAA swim meets.… Continue Reading

Ketanji Brown Jackson, America’s High Priestess of Babel

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

This past week, the following exchange took place between U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Mrs. Blackburn: “In United States vs. Virginia, the Supreme Court struck down the Virginia Military Institute’s male-only admission policy. Writing for the majority, Justice Ginsburg stated, ‘Supposed inherent differences are no longer accepted as a ground for race or national origin classifications, physical differences between men and women, however, are enduring.

Biden’s Biggest Virtue Signal Yet

Written by Evan O’Bryan

“Then Peter began to speak: ‘I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism
but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.’”
~Acts 10:34-35

I was always taught that the best person for a job will get the job, but apparently merit means nothing to Biden. The current President of the United States has only one requirement for his new U.S.… Continue Reading

Wait, Wait… David Axelrod is Complaining About The “Nature of our Times”?!

Written by Peter Heck

There were more than a few storylines to track after one of the most intransigent liberals in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court, Stephen Breyer, announced he would be stepping down at the end of this term.

First, the timing of the announcement seemed suspect. Justices have historically waited much later in the term to declare such an intent (Kennedy, Souter, O’Connor). That early timing led to widespread speculation that Breyer likely gave the White House the courtesy of a wary heads-up to avoid them being taken off guard and allow them to give a full and proper vetting of potential replacements.… Continue Reading

Biden’s Recent Judicial Nominees Create More Concern About Their Capacity to Serve Impartially

Written by Jorge Gomez

President Biden closed out his first year in office with 40 judges placed on the federal bench, a record number of confirmations not seen since Reagan.

As the New Year starts, it doesn’t appear Biden’s push to “restore balance” to the judiciary is slowing down.

Recently, the President announced his 12th round of federal judicial nominees, a wave that included candidates for two important appellate court vacancies on the Eleventh Circuit and the D.C.… Continue Reading

New Justice Department Report: Prison Rates Plummeting, Lowest Level Since 1992

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Why is there a record number of criminals on the streets? Well, if they are being removed from the prisons, where else do you think they will land?

It’s not enough for Republicans to only focus on funding the police. What point is there in funding the police if prosecutors, judges, and new laws from the legislature will just let out all the repeat violent offenders? A new Bureau of Justice Statistics report easily sheds light on why there is so much rampant crime in the streets.… Continue Reading

Recent Wave of Biden Judges Flips Two Appellate Courts to a Liberal Majority

Written by Jorge Gomez

In the biggest wave of judicial confirmations so far, the U.S. Senate recently confirmed nine (9) nominees to the federal courts. This brings the total number of judges appointed during the Biden administration to twenty-eight (28), which means the President continues outpacing his predecessors by sizeable margins.

Here’s a quick look at judicial confirmations at this point in a President’s first year, dating back to the Reagan administration:

President Biden is having a relative measure of success up to this point in his presidency, with some judicial analysts calling his confirmations “historic.”… Continue Reading

SCOTUS Remains Most Trusted Branch, but Court-Packing Would Crush Any Confidence in the Judiciary

Written by Jorge Gomez

Which branch of the federal government do you trust the most?

The President? Congress? The Supreme Court of the United States?

Gallup reports that a vast majority of Americans—an average of two-thirds or more—say they have a “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust the judicial branch. The same polling shows over the past two decades, the U.S. Supreme Court has consistently ranked as the most trusted branch of the federal government.… Continue Reading
