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.

SCOTUS Case of Colorado Web Designer Has Big Implications for Religious Liberty

Written by Jorge Gomez

The U.S. Supreme Court recently announced it will hear 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, a free speech case that could have major implications for religious liberty. This is a case being handled by our friends at the Alliance Defending Freedom.

It involves Lorie Smith, a Christian web designer from the Denver-area who declines to create wedding websites for same-sex couples, because of her religious beliefs. The case is expected to be heard during the Court’s next term, which begins in October.… 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

NPR’s Fake News From the SCOTUS

Written by Tim Graham

CNN anchor Brianna Keilar is hosting a temporary program pompously titled “Democracy In Peril.” On Jan. 18, Keilar huffed: “We can’t discuss the tsunami of disinformation, jeopardizing American democracy, without talking about the mothership, Fox.”

On the very same day, NPR U.S. Supreme Court reporter Nina Totenberg aired a story claiming that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch was callously ignoring requests from Chief Justice John Roberts to wear a mask during oral arguments in deference to diabetes-suffering colleague Justice Sonia Sotomayor.… Continue Reading

Justices Kavanaugh and Barrett Deal Crushing Blow to Religious Liberty

Written by Daniel Horowitz

James Madison once wroteGovernment is instituted to protect property of every sort” and that “conscience is the most sacred of all property.” Yet just before July 4 weekend, the U.S. Supreme Court, by denying an appeal in an important religious liberty case, has essentially abrogated both property and conscience rights, as well as the right to use one’s own property in accordance with deeply held religious beliefs. So much for self-evident truths, inalienable rights, and the institution of government to secure these rights.… Continue Reading

Will Roberts and Kavanaugh Stand With the Unborn or the Unjust?

Written by Terence P. Jeffrey

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, both nominated by Republican presidents, have both written absurd opinions on abortion laws.

The case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which the U.S. Supreme Court will hear this year, could give them an opportunity to redeem themselves.

At issue in this case is a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after a baby’s 15th gestational week. The question: Can a state prohibit doctors from killing unborn babies who are not yet old enough to survive outside the womb?… Continue Reading

Democrats Take First Steps to Pack the U.S. Supreme Court; Justice Breyer Warns it’s a Bad Idea

Written by Liberty McArtor

America moved closer to a 180-degree shift last week when President Joe Biden established the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States. And now, the treacherous idea of court-packing is closer to becoming reality, as Democrats filed a bill this week to add four (4) seats to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In examining “reforms” to the U.S. Supreme Court, the major issue the commission will examine is court-packing—put simply, increasing the number of justices on the U.S.… Continue Reading

Why the Fuss?

Written by Thorin Anderson

Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 78 that the U.S. Supreme Court would be the weakest branch of government because it had “no influence over either the sword or the purse.”  Why then the panic and flaming hair on the Democrat side of the isle with the elevation of Amy Coney Barrett to that Court?  What gives?  She claims to be an originalist, and by definition an originalist ignores his or her own policy preferences and yields to the intention of the U.S.… Continue Reading

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

Quisling Carly Fiorina Supports Biden for President

Written by Laurie Higgins

Once and former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina just announced her intention to vote for Joe Biden. She accompanied her announcement with this amusing rationalization for her traitorous betrayal of Republican principles:

As citizens, our vote is more than a check on a box. You know, it’s a statement about where we want to go, and I think what we need now actually is real leadership that can unify the country. I am encouraged that Joe Biden is a person of humility and empathy and character.
