I TOLD YOU SO: Trump’s SCOTUS List merely a Suggestion (VIDEO)
I said yesterday that you would have to be a giant, monumental sucker to believe that Trump actually meant he would pick one of the 11 names on his SCOTUS nomination short list. I was pooh poohed by people who are really wanting a reason to believe in and vote for Trump. I really kind of expected it to take more than about five hours | Read More »
Judge on Darth Trump’s Supreme Court Listicle Mocks Him Mercilessly on Twitter
Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett doesn’t like Donald Trump very much, something the Donald would know if he were active on Twitter. (… wait) Willett was on Trump’s list of people that he thinks conservatives would like to see written down on a paper about Supreme Court nominations. His SCOTUS Taunt Listicle, if you will. A listicle he hasn’t committed to at all, by | Read More »
Trump’s SCOTUS List is Meaningless because the Word of a Pathological Liar is Worthless
Donald Trump has released a list of people who he is apparently going to consider for Supreme Court nominees to replace Antonin Scalia. Off the top of my head the only two names I recognize are Sykes and Willett, who are of course great nominees. As to the rest, I don’t really plan to do even cursory research about their records, neither do I care. | Read More »

Lindsey Graham Agrees To Meet With Obama SCOTUS Pick Because Why NOT Undermine Entire Republican Party, Right?
South Carolina’s fancy Republican Lindsey Graham will be meeting with Obama Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland as “a courtesy”, spokesman Kevin Bishop confirmed today. Theoretically, Graham still believes, like the rest of the GOP and all of its voters, that the seat should remain unfilled until after the election in November. Graham is on the Senate Judiciary committee. He previously said he wouldn’t meet with | Read More »
Cross One More Name Off The SCOTUS Pick List
Look at the type of year we’re having, politically. Even if the Mitch McConnell hadn’t thrown down the gauntlet, it would be hard to imagine anyone would want to go through the barrage of media questions and Senate hearings. At best, it would take a toll on one’s sanity. Once considered a top pick to replace Antonin Scalia, Alberto Jordan has pulled his name from consideration for the | Read More »
Thomas Sowell Endorses Cruz Because Of The Supreme Court
Thomas Sowell, economist, social theorist, political philosopher, author and Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, endorses Sen. Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz Schools Chuck Todd on the Senate’s Responsibility to “Advise and Consent” [VIDEO]
Ted Cruz joined Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” yesterday to discuss his view on a SCOTUS nomination. It should come as a shock to absolutely no one that Todd’s questions were pointedly biased. But in typical Cruz fashion, Ted takes the reigns and runs circles around Chuck Todd by factually explaining the US Constitution. Todd: But why not go through the process? Shouldn’t the | Read More »

You Can Get Off Your High Horses About SCOTUS Appointment Democrats, You’re On Tape
Sen. Chuck Schumer threw a fit on Sunday and called Sen. Mitch McConnell an “obstructionist” for his promise to block a lame duck Supreme Court appointment by President Obama. So-called mainstream Republicans should not “follow Mitch McConnell over the cliff” said Schumer. Well one man’s cliff is another man’s fortress of moral certitude. And in this case, both those men are Sen. Schumer, as the | Read More »
Texas Set to Defend Abortion Restrictions Before SCOTUS
Even before the videos exposing Planned Parenthood practices were revealed, and before the abysmal failure that was the House hearing to address PP funding, individual states did their part to promote life. It is more than apparent that Texas has been an example of how to combat the abortion machine in America. Now Texas is set to appear before the Supreme Court of the United | Read More »

The New York Times’ Racist Attack on Clarence Thomas
It is interesting that a major newspaper would so blatantly call out the only black man on the Supreme Court for borrowing language in briefings. He is by far not the only one, and his average rate of language borrowed from briefings is not that much different from his peers. Over the years, the average rate of nearly identical language between a party’s brief and the | Read More »
Obergefell and Guns
For supporters of traditional marriage and, more broadly, social conservatives, the Obergefell decision has obviously been a huge disappointment. Using the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process clause, the Supreme Court invented a fundamental right to marriage, in particular, same-sex marriage. It is by no means an adequate consolation prize, but the interpretation of the amendment by the court might open the way to further gun rights | Read More »
