Citizen Trump

President Trump says he’ll end birthright citizenship. That’s the deal where immigrants give birth after entering the country illegally. The baby is a U.S. citizen according to the 14th amendment to the constitution. At least that’s what the WSJ it says means in an editorial “Rewriting the 14th Amendment.” But according to Trump that’s not what it

Roughing The Justice

Daniel Henninger says half the Senate Judiciary Committee created a new legal standard – “I believe Christine.” This new standard for court nominees (and surely others in and outside politics) would be that judgment can be rendered in the absence of substantive argument or any legal standard relating to corroboration, cross-examination or presumption of innocence.

Democratic Resistance

AP reported that the Brett Kavanaugh Senate hearings touched off more Democratic resistance. Democrats don’t have the votes to block Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But that didn’t stop them from putting up a rowdy, leave-nothing-on-the-table fight during four days of Senate confirmation hearings that marked a new stage in the party’s resistance to President

Angry Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Angry Judge Brett Kavanaugh took offense at being called a drunk and a serial rapist. And he let the Senate Judiciary Committee know it. Very forcefully. Lindsey Graham was inspired to point out that serial rapists rarely give up their craft to become judges on the nation’s second highest court. And so it seemed Kavanaugh had

R3publicans/The Supreme Court: The Dog that Didn’t Bark

Written by James Bovard

Wednesday September 26, 2018

The furor over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh is spurring many commentators to bewail that the Supreme Court has become too powerful. But the real problem is that the Court is now often little more than a fig leaf to provide legitimacy for a Leviathan that would have mortified the Founding Fathers. The Court’s betrayal of its constitutional role has vastly increased the stakes for the current and any future Justice nomination.

Preppy Due Process

  Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney wants Judge Brett Kavanaugh to testify first about her allegation that he sexually assaulted her in high school. Then her client will talk. No confronting his accuser there. Professor Dershowitz was livid. He called the demand “anti-due process, anti-American.” And Heather Wilhelm detects a whiff of anger towards white males

Chuck Schumer’s Evil Schemes

Chuck Schumer’s evil schemes to hold up the Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination are beginning to remind me of Havey Korman’s Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles. It seems Schumer dispatched Diane Feinstein to send the FBI a secret letter from a secret accuser of Brett Kavanaugh. And the accuser claims the judge tried to get in her
