    It took five days for the news to finally get out because the leftist media didn’t know how to spin it, but last Thursday gun control extremist Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer his wife and guests were robbed at machete point inside their own home. The irony of this incident is that despite having some of the toughest and most draconian gun control laws in the Western Hemisphere since 2008 St. Kitts/Nevis has been on The State Department’s travel advisory list warning Americans who must go there not to walk alone at night. St. Kitts/Nevis a nation, whose gun control...

    Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed at knife point in his vacation home on the Caribbean island of Nevis Feb. 9, according to a court spokeswoman, although he’s not the first Supreme Court justice become a victim of crime. In 2004, Justice David Souter was mugged while jogging, and in 1966, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had her purse snatched. Breyer was with his wife, Joanna Breyer, and guests when an intruder armed with a machete broke into their home. The intruder took $1,000 but no one was hurt.

    Justice Breyer appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss the Second Amendment with Chris Wallace and said the Founding Fathers would side with him because they have concluded James Madison was more worried the Constitution may not be ratified than he was about granting individuals the right to bear arms.

    Josh Gerstein (Politico) has transcripts of Breyer’s Good Morning America remarks, which seemed to suggest that Koran-burning might be constitutionally unprotected, but also his more recent Larry King Live remarks, which pretty strongly suggest that Koran-burning is indeed constitutionally protected.To recap, the earlier remarks were ambiguous. Stephanopoulos asked whether globalization and the Internet, and the greater risk that expression in the U.S. may lead to killings overseas, should “change the nature .. of what we can allow and protect.” Breyer responded: “Well in a sense, yes. In a sense, no.... [Y]ou can say, with the internet, you can say...

    I’m not sure which is more unsettling — the fact that a Supreme Court justice can get the First Amendment so wrong, or that it is so unclear that George Stephanopoulos thought to ask the question. Until now, I perhaps naïvely thought that everyone understood that the provocateurial pastor in Florida had the right to burn Korans, or any other book he legitimately owned, but that it was a really bad idea for many reasons, most of which Allahpundit argued in his excellent posts on the subject. Silly me: Last week we saw a Florida Pastor – with 30 members...

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has expressed a willingness to ban protesters from burning the Koran as the modern day equivalent of shouting fire in a crowded theater.The Supreme Court has ruled burning the American flag in protest is protected speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution.Breyer spoke to George Stephanopoulos on ABC's Good Morning America today:But Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer told me on "GMA" that he's not prepared to conclude that -- in the internet age -- the First Amendment condones Koran burning.“Holmes said it doesn’t mean you can shout 'fire' in a crowded theater,” Breyer...

    Supreme Court: Ruling for bin Laden's former chauffeur, liberal justices have once again hampered our ability to wage war on terror......Justice Stevens' ruling ignored the clear language of the Detainee Treatment Act (DTA), passed and signed into law last year, and went on a fishing expedition to find ways around it.Congress believed that in passing the DTA it was removing the federal courts' jurisdiction over Gitmo detainees. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Specter, who opposed the DTA, complained on the floor of the Senate that under the legislation, "no court, justice, or judge shall have jurisdiction to consider the application for...

    National Review Online ^ | Dec. 14, 2005 | Representative Tom Feeney
    Give Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer his due. With the publication of his new book "Active Liberty," he enthusiastically embraces a mea culpa approach to allegations that Supreme Court justices invent, recreate, and expand constitutional principles as they please. Viewed as a response to Justice Antonin Scalia's "A Matter of Interpretation," Breyer’s book, openly advocates for the notion that U.S. constitutional law is whatever a majority of Supreme Court justices wishes...

    JAN CRAWFORD GREENBURG: Thank you for joining us today, Justice Breyer. Tell us why you decided to write this book. JUSTICE STEPHEN BREYER: I wanted to write it because I've learned from really Chief Justice Rehnquist, Justice O'Connor, my predecessor Harry Blackmun that there's a tremendous desire for knowledge about the court and how do we actually decide cases? People want to know. It's not the CIA; there's not really a secret. And I wanted to try to help people understand that. And also, I think there's a misconception. I think that many people believe that we're deciding what's good...

    An article by Jonathan David Carson, Ph.D. in the October 7, 2005 issue of “The American Thinker” was so insightful, that I felt I had to bring it to the attention of my viewers.

    Last weekend, Justices Stephen G. Breyer and Sandra Day O'Connor appeared on ABC News' "This Week," hosted by George Stephanopoulos. Most of you may have missed that show – it has descended to its lowest rating from its high when the late, great David Brinkley was the host. Justice Breyer made the following extraordinary comment on that show: "Through commerce, through globalization, through the spread of democratic institutions, through immigration to America, it's becoming more and more one world of many different kinds of people. And how they're going to live together across the world will be the challenge, and...

    There is an old adage that individually, people can be very smart, but put them in a group, and dumbness reigns supreme. Unfortunately, there are no calculations that correctly specify how many people need to put their heads together to reach the point of group insanity. However, we all know that twelve seems to have been the smallest number necessary. After all, that’s how many it takes to make up a jury. In recent years, juries have awarded multi-million dollar awards to plaintiffs for spilling hot coffee on themselves and getting burned, smoking cigarettes in boxes with warning labels, even...
