Donald Trump Is Handicapping Supreme Court Vacancies
Post Date: 2017-10-16 00:27:38 by Tooconservative
Axios has a rather breathless scoop that Trump thinks hell select a total of four Supreme Court Justices by the end of his first term. This is what the set up looks like: Father Time and the actuarial tables say that three is a safe bet and four is a definite possibility (this is counting Gorsuch as the first, not saying there will be four in addition to Gorsuch.) Asked how he comes to that jaw-dropping number, Trump mentions the obvious: hes already replaced Antonin Scalia with Neil Gorsuch, and there are rumors Anthony Kennedy will retire.Ok, one source told Trump, so thats two. Who are the others? Ginsburg, Trump ...

In victory for Trump, Supreme Court dismisses travel ban case
Post Date: 2017-10-11 09:22:55 by Tooconservative
WASHINGTON The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to President Trump's travel ban on majority-Muslim countries Tuesday because it has been replaced by a new version, sending the controversy back to the starting block. The ruling is a victory for the Trump administration, which had asked the court to drop the case after Trump signed a proclamation Sept. 24 that replaced the temporary travel ban on six nations with a new, indefinite ban affecting eight countries. That action made the court challenge moot, the justices ruled. "We express no view on the merits," the justices said in a one-page order. The decision effectively wipes the record clean in the U.S. ...
Mitch McConnell Goes to the Mattresses for Trump's Judicial Nominees
Post Date: 2017-10-11 09:17:26 by Tooconservative
The Republican drive to confirm federal judges has gained momentum from a series of actions by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. They seem modest but are likely to speed up the confirmation of both appeals and district court judgesconservatives, for the most part. Democrats wont be pleased. The steps McConnell has taken in recent weeks are aimed at thwarting their efforts to block, sideline, or delay President Trumps nominees. Heres what McConnell has done: * Confirming judicial nominees has been elevated to a top priority in the Senate. I decide the priority, McConnell said in an interview. Priority between an assistant secretary of State ...
New DoJ transgender discrimination memo highlights how messy the Civil Rights Act is
Post Date: 2017-10-07 11:44:38 by Tooconservative
The ongoing SJW battles over transgenderism took another sharp turn this week when Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memo on the subject dealing with anti-discrimination lawsuits. During the Obama administration, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act was expanded by executive fiat to blur the word sex (as in male or female) into the more recent, trendy, but wholly unscientific idea of gender as meaning something different. This led to questions of whether or not workplace discrimination protections apply to so-called transgender individuals. Now, with a new memo having been issued, the federal governments position in any pending or future lawsuits has ...
Second Amendment caucus leader blasts NRA's 'horrible' plan for 'bump stocks'

"I think it's a horrible idea, to ask the ATF to contort existing law," Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File) The Republican leader of the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus blasted the National Rifle Association's stance on how the federal government should deal with "bump stocks," and said it's a recipe for the Trump administration to search for new gun restrictions in the law where there are none. "I think it's a horrible idea, to ask the ATF to contort existing law," Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. "I think it sets a bad precedent." Massie was reacting to the ...
NRA Caves On "Bump Fire Stocks," Says They Should Be "Subject To Additional Regulations"
Post Date: 2017-10-05 16:30:31 by hondo68
Following the tragic events in Las Vegas, which were seemingly made even worse by a product that most people didn't even know existed a couple of days ago, and ramped-up calls for new gun restrictions from Democrats, the National Rifle Association has just caved and called for "additional regulations" on "bump fire stocks" which effectively serve to allow semi-automatic weapons to function as fully-automatic. Here is the full statement from the NRA: "In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented." "Unfortunately, the first response ...
DOJ releases overruled memos finding it illegal for presidents to appoint relatives

The Justice Department has released a series of recently overruled legal memos concluding that presidents cannot appoint their relatives to the White House staff or presidential commissions, even to unpaid posts.In January, a career Justice Department official essentially declared the earlier opinions erroneous or obsolete, clearing the way for President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner to take a senior adviser position in the White House.The legal opinion that cleared the way for Kushner and Ivanka Trump appointments reversed earlier advice.

How Badly Is Neil Gorsuch Annoying the Other Supreme Court Justices?
Post Date: 2017-10-01 14:22:52 by Tooconservative
In 2009 and 2010, Virginia Thomas became an outspoken opponent of the new President, Barack Obama. Ginni Thomas, as she is known, travelled the country as a leader of the growing Tea Party movement, which was particularly focussed on overturning the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Around the same time, legal challenges to the law were working their way to the Supreme Court, where Ginnis husband, Clarence Thomas, serves. Media attention began to focus on the propriety of such a close association between a Justice and a public adversary of a law whose fate was before the Court. Then, shortly before the A.C.A. case came before the Justices, in 2012, something happened. ...

Supreme Court Temporarily Puts Trump's Travel Ban in Fuller Force Again as It Hears Briefing on the Issues and Debates a Ruling
Post Date: 2017-09-11 19:55:41 by Tooconservative
The Ninth Circuit enjoined the government from implementing the travel ban in full, and the Supreme Court has temporarily stayed that injunction, meaning the travel ban is back in fuller effect. Note it's in fuller effect, not full. That's because the Ninth Circus objected to two parts of the travel ban. One part they claimed was unconstitutional was limiting the family members who could visit their relatives in the US to close family members, not stuff like cousins. The other part they claimed (falsely) was unconstitutional was the ban on refugees -- the Ninth Circus claimed that if there was a refugee resettlement group offering "formal assurances" on behalf of the ...
Trump Continues to Remake the Federal Judiciary
Post Date: 2017-09-07 17:42:10 by Tooconservative
President Donald Trump submitted another slate of judicial nominees to the Senate Thursday, naming candidates to the powerful federal appeals courts based in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, California. The White House announced that Trump has named Gregory Katsas to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the nations second most powerful judicial panel, and Ryan Bounds to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the West Coast appeals court and primary antagonist of the early days of the Trump presidency. Katsas nomination was widely expected. He currently serves as deputy White House counsel and has played a major role in the administrations early ...
Are sex offender registries unconstitutional?
Post Date: 2017-09-02 18:42:21 by Tooconservative
A ruling coming out of a federal court in Denver this week could lead to a significant change in how the country deals with convicted sex offenders. Judge Richard Matsch heard a case involving three convicted sex offenders who were protesting having all of their personal information published on a public sex offender registry. Rather than ruling on whether or not the three could have their details removed (which was all that was requested), Matsch ruled that the entire registry was unconstitutional. This one is going to be appealed and if it makes it to the Supreme Court it could impact the laws in pretty much every state in the union. (CBS Denver) A federal court judge in Denver has ...
Public sector unions are beginning to panic
Post Date: 2017-09-02 18:39:14 by Tooconservative
Those who follow labor union issues likely remember the disappointing conclusion in March of 2016 to the case of Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. Friedrichs had sought to stop the mandatory contribution of dues out of the paychecks of teachers who either did not belong to the teachers union or did not support their political positions. With the death of Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court split 4-4 on the case an allowed the unfair practice to continue. Now, as John Hinderaker reports at Powerline, another case is making its way before the court and its dealing with the same set of issues. Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, ...
Trump, Sheriff Joe, and the Thrill of Arbitrary Power
Post Date: 2017-09-01 07:39:57 by Deckard
The president admires strong men who break the law to enforce it.Three days before Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, he suggested that the former Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff was "convicted for doing his job." In reality, Arpaio was convicted for doing someone else's job by enforcing federal immigration law. When a federal judge told him to cut it out, Arpaio openly defied the order. By giving a pass to Arpaio's criminal contempt, the president reveals the hollowness of his supposed commitment to law and order. Beginning in 2007, specially trained Maricopa County deputies had authority under Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to detain people they ...
Could Trump Deliver a Conservative Federal Judiciary?
Post Date: 2017-08-30 08:18:06 by Tooconservative
President Trump thinks the Gorsuch appointment to the Supreme Court is one of his biggest achievements of his presidency. Another major success may await him: the redirection of the lower federal courts, such that there will be more Republican than Democratic appointees, and thus a more conservative federal judiciary. Democrats know the judicial map, yet what can they do to slow the Republicans down? It takes just 51 votes to confirm a judge, and there are 52 Republicans.* The Democrats are in the minority, and they no longer have the filibuster, a tool that they themselves did away with when they were in the majority in 2013. Trump and Senate Republicans would appear to be able to have ...
Congress Quietly Passed A Bill Allowing Warrantless Searches of Homes – Only 1% Opposed It

Federal Court Rules Citizens Have No Right to Film Politicians & Police in Public

Contradicting the rulings of six others federal courts, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals annihilated free speech rights in upholding a district court decision stating citizens do not have the right to film public officials politicians, police, and others in public. In affirming the decision of the lower court to dismiss, the Eighth Circuit effectively ended free speech activist Matthew Akins challenge to the Columbia, Missouri, Police Department, which he accuses of unlawfully stopping and arresting him on multiple occasions though nearly all charges were later dropped as he filmed their encounters with the public, in public.

Michigan Man Told To “Give Up Some Of Your Constitutional Rights” In Exchange For Adopting Grandson
Post Date: 2017-07-21 09:39:14 by Deckard
Anyone with half a brain can read the Second Amendment, and clearly articulate its intent. Its not a complicated law. Its not buried in high-brow legalese that is indecipherable to the average person. Once you understand the original meaning of the words when they were written, and the wider context of the Bill of Rights, its meaning is obvious. The Second Amendment protects an individuals right to own and use firearms, which is a meaning that has been upheld by the Supreme Court. So its always somewhat surprising to learn that there are so many states with laws that disregard the Second Amendment. Its baffling that its taken so long to strike down these ...

Hellraiser: First Satanic Monument on U.S. Public Property Being Erected
Post Date: 2017-07-13 09:04:58 by hondo68
Some firsts tell us we may be in our last days. A good example is whats billed as our countrys first satanic monument on public property (shown). The handiwork of some Massachusetts Satanists, it was approved in May for The Satanic Temple and will be erected in the Veterans Memorial Park in Belle Plaine, Minnesota. The Daily Caller provides some more background: The Satanic Temples efforts to gain approval for a Satanic monument in the park started, ironically, with a Christian monuments installation. The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a complaint about the monument, which featured a soldier kneeling before a cross. The city of Belle Plaine ordered the ...
