How Should SCOTUS Rule On The Cake Baking Case?

The Supreme Court is set to tackle a case involving cake bakers refusing to make a custom cake for a gay wedding. At hand is the question of whether the cake bakers should be forced to service the gay couple? To many casual observers, it appears to be a clear case of discrimination. Should discrimination be legal? The implications of the case run much deeper than simply being forced to bake a cake for a marriage one may fundamentally disagree with. It’s a question of personal principles and morals. If one does not agree with homosexuality, should they be servicing… Keep Reading

Neil Gorsuch Is a Giant For The Conservative Cause

Mark Joseph Stern is coming apart at the seams and he wants you to imitate his thumb-sucking fetal posture. In his article, Neil Gorsuch is everything liberals feared—and more, Stern recites a litany of Justice Gorsuch’s most heinous transgressions. He’s supposedly “pro-gun, pro–travel ban, anti-gay, anti–church/state separation. He is certainly more conservative than Justice Samuel Alito and possibly to the right of Justice Clarence Thomas.” Stern saves the best/worst for last when he says Gorsuch “will likely serve on the court for at least three more decades.” There’s a lot there for the Left to fear and for the Right… Keep Reading

Tense Exchange Between CNN’s Jim Acosta And Sean Spicer Overshadows Briefing

A tense exchange between CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta and Press Secretary Sean Spicer regarding the ban on television cameras in the press room overshadowed the rest of June 26’s briefing. Acosta is one of many reporters outraged over the White House’s decision to restrict the live broadcast of briefings by news organizations over the past few weeks. This shift from standard procedure of past administrations has drawn criticism from the media. Tensions came to a head today when Acosta repeatedly pressed the issue. “Some days we’ll have them, some days we won’t,” said Spicer, who recently accused White… Keep Reading

Rep. Thomas Massie Is ‘Excited’ About Trump’s Presidency, Sees ‘Great Opportunity’ Moving Forward

It has been a tumultuous start to Trump’s Presidency as the inexperienced outsider adjusts to life in Washington DC, but Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is impressed with what he has seen thus far. Massie thinks the 45th President is off to a great start mainly because of his choice of rule-of-law Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. “I’m excited for the wins that we got already, which includes Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch being confirmed and that’s going to last for decades,” Massie said to Breitbart News. “Neil Gorsuch was worth the entire election, everything else is a bonus.” Massie… Keep Reading

Supreme Court Reins In The Lower Courts And Yields To Congress

Last month, in a 7-1 decision (Justice Breyer dissenting), the Supreme Court issued an order that should warm the hearts of every originalist. In the case of SCA Hygiene Products v. First Quality Baby Products the Court ruled that judges do not have the authority to change the statute of limitations as enacted by Congress. In 1952, Congress enacted 35 USC §282 which established a six-year statute of limitations in patent infringement cases. This statute allowed an inventor to recover damages for the six years prior to their filing a case. However, the courts had decided that Congress did not… Keep Reading

In Defense Of Neil Gorsuch

No one ever said that going through the Supreme Court nomination process is easy. Central to the Senate’s constitutionally mandated role to provide “advice and consent” to the president, is the rigorous questioning of the nominee by the Senate Judiciary Committee, and a subsequent vote of the entire chamber. However, there is a difference between legitimate questions concerning a potential justice’s ability to fairly and impartially decide cases, and attempting to besmirch a nominee’s character. This offense is especially egregious when the basis for such criticism is a decision exemplifying judicial restraint and deference to the role of Congress in… Keep Reading

Senate Poised To Go “Nuclear” To Confirm Gorsuch To SCOTUS

Just as the United States Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-9 along party lines to advance Gorsuch’s nomination, Democrats reached the 40-vote threshold to filibuster a vote by the full Senate. This morning Sens. Chris Coons of Delaware, Dianne Feinstein of California, Mark Warner of Virginia, and Patrick Leahy of Vermont all said they could not support Gorsuch, meaning the Democrat Party has 41 Senators vowing to block his nomination to the Supreme Court.

Trump Could Be The Most Pro-Gun President In History

It’s impossible to overstate the importance of the election of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in last week’s presidential election when it comes to the Second Amendment. The Constitutional right to keep and bear arms dodged a bullet when Hillary was defeated. Clinton’s views on gun rights are well known; she supports an “Assault Weapons” ban, opposes the Heller v D.C. decision, wants to repeal the immunity firearms manufacturers have when a criminal misuses their produts, wants to set up a federal registry of all handguns, and supports closing loopholes that don’t exist. If Hillary had won, the Supreme Court… Keep Reading

Government Won’t Let Disabled Child Bring Service Dog To School

Thank you, government, for giving us all things so good and beautiful. Without you, there would be riots and chaos in the street, or possibly even disabled middle school girls bringing their service dogs to school with them. This just in from Napoleon, Michigan. Brent and Stacy Fry are suing their local school district because their daughter, known as F.E. in litigation documents to protect her identity, just isn’t getting anywhere by asking politely. She was born with cerebral palsy and relies heavily on her service dog, Wonder, to get around her home and school. Unfortunately for the Frys, the… Keep Reading

Does The Pro-Life Movement Have a Future?

From the moment Roe v. Wade came down from the gavel of the nine gods to the lives of our unworthy peasantry, social conservatives and the religious right have been debating tactics to achieve the impossible: Overturning a 7 to 2 Supreme Court decision. It’s a task not many activist movements have been able to pull off. First, the mantra was appointing new justices to overturn it. Lawyers and strategists tried to find a way for Congress and the President to go around it. Amending the Constitution was placed on the table. How was the pro-life movement going to push… Keep Reading

Coming Soon! The Return Of The Republicans!

Sometimes I don’t know whether to kick the Supreme Court or kiss it.  As America  seemingly turns to the left, albeit by judicial fiat,  the Right will have its revenge in 2016 via the legitimate voice of the people, the ballot box.  This is where real change happens.  A few black robed tyrants in narrow decisions on Obamacare and “Gay Marriage” may impose their  will on the American people for  a spell, but we the people still have the ultimate check on a court run amok and now have a rallying cry to overturn these political/judicial decisions.     Such revolutionary change to our… Keep Reading
