  • Nutcase Socialist Dem Ocasio-Cortez Says Democrats should “Pack” the U.S. Supreme Court – Video

    Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | October 12, 2018 | Brian
    Here is nutcase Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez literally saying Democrats should “Pack” the U.S. Supreme Court if they can regain control of the House, Senate and the Presidency. This because there is now a 5-4 Conservative Majority on the U.S. Supreme Court thanks to President Trump’s two Supreme Court choices. Ocasio-Cortez was asked what should be done about this new reality and she said, “We take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the Presidency and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America.” This hearkens back to Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s...
  • Government Police Fail to Make Arrests In Nearly Half of Murder Cases

    Mises Wire ^ | 10/11/2018 | Tate Fegley
    Police departments in a number of U.S. cities — Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans — are receiving increased attention for their failure to clear even half of the homicides that occur in their jurisdiction. And note that to “clear” a case doesn’t even necessarily require that someone be convicted of the crime, but only that either an arrest was made or that the case was “cleared by exceptional means,” meaning that the police identified a suspect, had sufficient evidence to arrest, and knew their location, but encountered a circumstance that prevented them from making the arrest.Of all the crimes classified...

    On 28 September, 2018, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania restored Second Amendment rights to Raymond Holloway, Jr.Mr. Holloway had his Second Amendment rights removed after being convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) for a second time, in 2005. The first time was in 2002. Under Pennsylvania law, a second offence with a blood alcohol level above .16%, could be punished as a misdemeanor with up to five years in prison. After serving his sentence as work-release for 90 days, and paying a fine of $1,500, Holloway has lead a virtuous life without further...

    Two observations about the sexual misconduct allegations / smear campaign against the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh: 1. The evidentiary standards being pushed by Democrats and the MSM are lower than those used in the Salem witch trials. 2. Rapists, groomers, pimps and similar sexual deviants are never pro-life. These types always rely on easy access to abortion in order to cover up their crimes.

    Christine Blasey Ford has named several people who would be witnesses to, or have knowledge of, what she says happened to her. Patrick Smyth denies it. Mark Judge denies it. Brett Kavanaugh denies it. People have claimed these are all men who went to school together, so they must be protecting themselves. What about any female witnesses? Christine Blasey Ford said there was one. Her name is Leland Keyser. She was Ford's classmate. She was not an eye witness, but Ford said she had knowledge of the party and assault. I have obtained Keyser's attorney's letter to the Senate Judiciary...
  • Trump chips away at liberal U.S. appeals court majorities

    Kitco News ^ | September 20, 2018 | Reuters
    Aided by fellow Republicans in the Senate, President Donald Trump is rapidly filling vacancies on U.S. appeals courts, moving some that had liberal majorities closer to conservative control in an ideological shift that could benefit his administration. These 13 courts wield considerable power, usually providing the last word on rulings appealed from lower courts on disputes involving federal law. Their rulings can be challenged before the U.S. Supreme Court, but most such appeals are turned away because the top court typically hears fewer than 100 cases annually. Eleven of the courts handle cases from specific multi-state regions, one handles cases...

    Senator Dianne Feinstein turned over the letter she received claiming sexual abuse allegations against Judge, Brett Kavanaugh to the DOJ/FBI rquested an investigation into this matter be launched by the FBi.

The DOJ/FBI forwarded this communication to the White House for executive review. So...much for that. The DOJ/FBI has looked closely at Kavanaugh many times and, does not want to get another black eye like it now...

    When Charlotte Adelman was a student at the University of Chicago, the nearby parks became a refuge for her, a sprawling expanse of green where she could escape the concrete urban landscape. It was then, many decades ago, that Adelman began her journey to becoming a fighter for environmental justice. Along the way, she has fought to preserve open spaces, ban pesticides in Wilmette and co-authored a book, “Prairie Directory of North America.” Now, Adelman, 81, has set her sights on her biggest target yet — to block the Obama Presidential Center from being built in Jackson Park. Adelman, along...

    In an interview in Mother Jones, a leading gun control advocate, Avery Gardner, makes the following claims. From motherjones.com: AG: There’s a case in Massachusetts that raises this exact issue. Worman v. Baker was decided in April by Judge William Young. It’s a 47-page opinion that really goes into this question of “in common use at the time” and said that’s the standard. Judge Young quotes Scalia’s opinion in Heller all the way through it and then upholds the Massachusetts law banning assault weapons. That case is going to be appealed to the First Circuit Court of Appeals. The...

    The Texas Tribune ^ | 7/18/2018 | EMMA PLATOFF
    Oldham is the third Texas nominee to be confirmed to the powerful, conservative-leaning appeals court since President Donald Trump took office. Andrew Oldham was confirmed to the federal bench Wednesday by a 50–49 vote, making him the the fourth alumnus of the Texas Attorney General’s Office to join the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals since President Donald Trump took office. That tally made his confirmation the narrowest of any Texas judicial nominee under Trump. Oldham currently serves as Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s top legal adviser. Born in 1978, Oldham is decades younger than the average judge on the New...

    (CNSNews.com) - Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia by President George W. Bush, accepted the assumption in a dissenting opinion he filed last October in the case of Garza v. Hargan that a teenage illegal alien caught at the border and put in detention has a right to an abortion in the United States. At the same time, Kavanaugh conceded that “this case presents a new situation not yet directly confronted by the Supreme Court.” Kavanaugh argued that in saying the illegal alien teen had a right to abortion...

    Rabbi Ya'akov Yakir, of the “Torat Hamedina” (“Torah of the State”) program at the Beit Orot Yeshiva, published a study that found that under Supreme Court Chief Justice Aharon Barak, the state recognized adultery as a bond that was no less legitimate than marriage. This means that if, for example, a married woman maintains an intimate relationship with a man married to another woman, the man may sue the woman for the alleged commitment she made to him in the context of their relationship, or vice versa. "There are two families here," he explained. "We claim in the study that...
