    Ever since he matured from Marxist revolutionary to conservative heavyweight champ, the American left has felt free to smear Clarence Thomas. Ever since he matured from Marxist revolutionary to conservative heavyweight champ, the American left has felt free to smear Clarence Thomas in ways they’d scream “racism!” at if he were still one of them. It’s a half-century reminder of which political team consistently weaponizes a twisted conception of racism to obtain power at any cost, instead of recognizing racism as a moral evil with objective standards of transgression that apply equally to all.In this reprehensible tradition, The New York...

    On Monday night, our local PBS station showed "Created Equal.....Clarence Thomas in his own words."     It was a great documentary and I learned a few things about his early days and marriage.   Like some of you, I recall the day that President Bush nominated him.  I happened to be with my father that day and he seemed very happy with the choice.  He told me that Thomas would make a great justice because he faced a lot of adverisity coming up in life.  (On a personal note, "overcoming adversity" was a theme that my late father would always...

    I turned my local PBS station last night for the sole purpose of recording the premier of the documentary, Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words. And “his own words” are powerful indeed: I watched the entire show. Perhaps it was Justice Thomas’ voice itself, resonant, measured and mesmerizing. Or perhaps it was the surprise of finding a PBS offering that didn’t reflexively trash the Chief Court Justice just because he is a conservative.  David Zurawik of The Baltimore Sun reveals the Left’s take on the documentary in the title of his review: If you want a one-sided, right-wing, celebratory...

    He was the subject of a recent book, “The Enigma of Clarence Thomas,” which led to a flurry of articles and book reviews on his life and legal thought. A new biographical documentary, made by the conservative filmmaker Michael Pack, airs Monday on PBS. For the project, the justice spoke to filmmakers for 30 hours — an astounding feat for a jurist who once went 10 years without asking a question from the bench. “He would have never said, ‘Gee whiz, I should be an icon,’” said Helgi Walker, a lawyer at the firm Gibson Dunn who clerked for Justice...
  • Justice Clarence Thomas calls Roe v. Wade, gay ‘marriage’ ‘incorrect decisions’ in new opinion

    In the same ruling, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, talked about 'erroneous precedents.' During a recent Supreme Court ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas referred to Roe v. Wade as one of many “incorrect decisions” in relation to the Fourteenth Amendment. Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision, imposed abortion on demand across the United States. In the same context of “incorrect decisions,” Thomas also mentioned the 2015 ruling Obergefell v. Hodges, which guaranteed a “right” to homosexual “marriage.” The final decision Thomas classified as “incorrect” was Dred Scott v. Sandford, according to which the Constitution of the United States was not meant to...

    The Federalist ^ | April 22, 2020 | Kyle Sammin
    With three conservatives and three liberals signing on to the originalist ruling in Ramos v. Louisiana, we see more evidence that the 'living Constitution' school of thought is in decline. The Supreme Court ruled Monday that for defendants to be convicted of crimes, juries must decide their guilt unanimously, not by a simple majority or any other fraction. If that seems obvious, it may be because in the federal judiciary and the courts of 48 states, this is already the law and has been for a long time. Oregon and Louisiana were, until this week, the only outliers. In applying...

Click puzzle (or click here) for full size rendition, then use your browser's print command to print puzzle. Clarence Thomas is currently the most senior associate and the longest serving member of the US Supreme Court. His appointment by George H.W. Bush is probably one of the only choices he made that superceded that of his predecessor, Ronald Reagan, whose two selections (O'Conner and Kennedy) ended up with a tepid or outright anti-constitutionalist agenda. All hints, along with the answer, are provided in the first reply comment below, using filtered font to prevent...
  • Joe Biden Owes Clarence Thomas an Apology

    On the day Chuck Schumer was threatening Supreme Court justices in front of pack of a cheering partisans, Representative Ayanna Pressley told the same crowd: "We have two alleged sexual predators on the bench of the highest court of the land, with the power to determine our reproductive freedoms. I still believe Anita Hill. And I still believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford!" Now, it is far more accurate to call Hill a "disgraced accuser" than Clarence Thomas an "alleged sexual predator." Not a single credible accuser -- and Thomas had scores of subordinates working for him during his years in...

    What happens in America when a black intellectual who was born into the crushing poverty of the Jim Crow South dares stand up to challenge white liberal Democratic orthodoxy? He is marginalized, socially hamstrung, ridiculed in ugly racist terms and compared by a leading liberal journalist to "chicken eating preachers" taking "crumbs from the white man's table." He is depicted in racist cartoons as a smiling lawn jockey, and a grinning shoeshine boy polishing a white man's boots. This is how American politics revealed itself to conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Jr. "License is given to others to attack...
  • Clarence Thomas Slams Proposed Rule to Silence Conservative Judges

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas panned a draft ethics rule that would dissuade judges from formally enrolling in ideological groups like the Federalist Society and its liberal counterpart, the American Constitution Society (ACS). Speaking Friday night at a Federalist Society conference in Florida, Thomas suggested the proposal is an attempt to silence the conservative lawyers group. The proposed rule would also bind law clerks and staff attorneys. “Now I think they’re about to silence the Federalist Society,” the justice said, according to remarks first reported by The Wall Street Journal. “So I guess I can’t come back.”

    It has been said that the very moment a man finds himself, he finds God. This captures the story of Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, a man of deep faith whose youthful struggles with racism caused that faith to be shaken but who later returned to it, more deeply and more resolutely because of his great character and refusal to settle for anything but truth. The new film "Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words" will be released in theaters nationwide Jan. 31, exquisitely timed with Black History Month. But this is also a time of great tensions...

    A new documentary about the life of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas highlights the latent racism in the Senate confirmation hearings led by then-Senator Joe Biden (D-Del.). In the film, set for release on Friday, Thomas recounts the horrifying accusations leveled by Anita Hill and Biden's twisting of Natural Law in an attempt to trip him up on abortion. In the documentary, provided in an early screening to PJ Media, Thomas exposes the racism of political expectations. "You have to believe in affirmative action because we think you ought to believe in affirmative action. How is that different from slavery?...

    Is the era of Big Judicial Activism over? It might just be. Supreme Court Justic Neil Gorsuch, in a ruling about denying green cards to migrants who come here to be "public charges," something that's plainly laid out in U.S. law as illegal, threw in a special warning to activist judges, all leftists, who have been beavering away to rule from the bench, warning them that he's tired of their shenanigans. It's a specter to behold - a big lion on the Supreme Court who not only cares about rule of law, but is now warning the leftists out there...

    Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas recently sparred over Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, a case involving the disposition of fetal remains by abortion providers. The case addresses two provisions of an Indiana law. The first provision prohibits abortion providers from treating the bodies of aborted children as “infectious waste” and incinerating them alongside used needles and other potentially dangerous items. The second provision made it illegal for an abortion provider to perform an abortion in Indiana when the provider knows that the mother is seeking the abortion “solely because of the child’s race,...

    I Was the Wrong African American' Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has used the 2020 election campaign to finally take revenge on Joe Biden. The justice did so by issuing a strong condemnation of his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. According to Thomas, these hearings were used by Biden -- who was then a senator -- to "get rid of me" because Biden and his fellow Democrats considered Thomas the "wrong" African American for the job. Thomas made the remarks in a soon-to-be-released documentary, Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, ABC...

The film, produced by conservative filmmaker Michael Pack and Manifold Productions is scheduled for theatrical release in early 2020. The documentary is entitled, “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.” ABC reports Thomas saying, “I felt as though in my life I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me. We were told that, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be the bigot in the pickup truck; it’s gonna be the Klansmen; it’s gonna be...

    Justice Clarence Thomas remains a controversial figure. H was confirmed with one of the slimmest margins in history, whose confirmation battle devolved into a nasty fight when Anita Hill lobbed sexual misconduct allegations at him. Justice Brett Kavanaugh would face the same dirty Democratic tricks. The GOP blessedly held firm for this eminently qualified man who was the subject to the nastiest character assassination attempt since Thomas. Kavanaugh’s confirmation was extra sweet in that Republicans had long last avenged the failed nomination of Robert Bork. And in today’s politics, no matter what the Democrats say, your default position should be...

Thomas opens up about the process in a new documentary and claims the “biggest impediment” to his life and legal career was not the KKK but the “modern-day liberal.”

    WASHINGTON — A bare majority of the U.S. Supreme Court appeared likely Tuesday to let the Trump administration follow through on its plan to shut down DACA, the federal program that has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as dreamers, to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S. With hundreds of DACA supporters rallying outside — so many that police shut down the street in front of the Supreme Court — the justices heard nearly an hour and a half of oral arguments. Based on their questions, it appeared that the court's five conservatives were inclined to rule that the...
