Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett Over Howls of Rage from RBG Worshippers

Written by Laurie Higgins

Why do leftists, particularly women, worship the notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG)? Why are even some Republicans waxing effusive about her?

Yes, it’s lovely that she had a deep friendship with her ideological foe Antonin Scalia, but is that really deserving of plaudits and fawning admiration. Have we come to a cultural place so degraded, so uncivil, so intolerant, so nasty and brutish that friendship between people of dissenting worldviews is oohed and aahed over like the discovery of beautiful bird long-assumed to be extinct?… Continue Reading

16 Questions Conservatives Should Ask Any SCOTUS Nominee

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Democrats never have any doubts about their court nominees. They know with certainty that once their picks are on the court, they will be willing to do anything in a real case to interpret the U.S. Constitution the way they see it. They will rule with the party’s preferred political outcomes regardless of past precedent or the plain meaning of the Constitution.… Continue Reading

SCOTUS Game Time

Written by Laurie Higgins

The left always plays hardball. The right rarely does. With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg (RBG), it’s now game time for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).

People are speculating–rightly in my view–that if President Trump nominates a replacement for RBG, then leftists (mostly violent rioters) will do what they do best. People are speculating too–rightly in my view–that if President Trump is re-elected, then leftists (mostly violent rioters) will do what they do best.

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley Launches Deserved Attack Against Roe v. Wade

Written by Laurie Higgins

On Sunday, in an interview with the Washington Post, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) took a dagger to the heart of Roe v. Wade like abortionists take a needle to the hearts of babies floating in their mothers’ wombs. Hawley made this statement about the infamous Supreme Court decision—a statement that has sent shock waves into the fetid, swampy “progressive” pond in which pro-feticide cheerleaders ferociously swim:

I will vote only for those Supreme Court nominees who have explicitly acknowledged that Roe v.

An Important Win for Religious Liberty: Espinoza v. Montana

Written by John A. Sparks

Sometimes, the facts of a case have an emotional appeal in addition to a strong constitutional basis. Espinoza v. Montana certainly qualifies.

Kendra Espinoza, a hard working (three jobs) and determined single mom, decided to take her two daughters out of the local public schools and enroll them in Stillwater Christian School in Kalispell, Montana. … Continue Reading

The Borking of Lawrence VanDyke

Written by Laurie Higgins

It looks like yet another judicial nominee is being Borked by unscrupulous Democrats who may have an unconstitutional religious test for holding office.

Lawrence VanDyke, Harvard Law School graduate, former solicitor general of Montana and Nevada, and evangelical Christian, has been nominated to the largest, wildly liberal, and controversial 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Despite his stellar academic and professional background, a majority of the 15 members of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary sent a shocking letter to the U.S.Continue Reading

From the Redcoats to the Black Robes

Written by Daniel Horowitz

King George couldn’t hold a candle to the judicial despotism we are governed by some 12 score and three years after the colonists rebelled against what they thought were “intolerable acts.” Sure, there was some taxation without representation going on in the 1770s, but I think the colonists would have taken that any day if they were to see in their crystal ball the severity of today’s social transformation without representation.… Continue Reading
