Liberals Try To Use COVID-19 Crisis To Halt Judicial Confirmations

May 6, 2020 by


By Thomas Jipping ~ The Senate got back to business Monday and, while the coronavirus is still the 800-pound gorilla, senators will also attend to other aspects of the nation’s business. That includes the federal judiciary. Vacancies on life-tenured federal courts around the country are on the rise again, reversing a yearlong downward trend. When […]

NY Times Lets Schumer Off The Hook: Dems ‘Not All That Unhappy’

March 8, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times congressional correspondent Carl Hulse predictably shrugged off Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer’s volatile verbal threats directed at two Supreme Court justices nominated by the Trump administration in Friday’s “Schumer Regrets Content, But Not Spirit, of Warning.” Hulse generally gives Democrats the benefit of the doubt when they make nasty […]

Burt Prelutsky  ~    Partly I was amused, mainly I was disgusted, when I heard Democrats dismiss President Trump’s call for a citizenship question to be included on the census as constituting a purely political stunt. The fact is, the only really consequential question on the form is who within our borders is here legally. […]

By Hans von Spakovsky ~ In a much-awaited decision, the Supreme Court held on Thursday in a 5-4 decision that partisan gerrymandering is a political question beyond the reach of the federal courts.
