    Liberals won't like it. If Ted Cruz is elected president, he has big plans for the Supreme Court -- namely, picking extremely conservative candidates to fill any vacancies among the nine justices. In an interview with Bloomberg, the Senator and former solicitor general from Texas said that Republicans are generally bad at picking nominees for the high court, and that he'd be different. "Unlike many of the other candidates, I will be willing to spend the capital to ensure that every Supreme Court nominee that I put on the court is a principled judicial conservative," Cruz said. As solicitor general,...

    AIKEN, S.C. — Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is "disgraceful" and a "disappointment" to conservatives, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Saturday, while praising Associate Justice Clarence Thomas as his favorite member of the high court. "Justice Roberts really let us down. What he did with Obamacare was disgraceful, and I think he did that because he wanted to be popular inside the Beltway," Trump told about 4,000 supporters.

    SNIP “It is true that after George W. Bush nominated John Roberts, I supported his confirmation. That was a mistake and I regret that,” he said. But he insisted that he’d fought behind the scenes for a more reliable — and proven — conservative jurist, appellate judge Mike Luddig, for whom he had worked.

    "As an individual, John Roberts is undoubtedly a principled conservative, as is the president who appointed him. He clerked for Chief Justice Rehnquist, worked in the Reagan White House, and served as the principal deputy solicitor general in President George H.W. Bush's Justice Department. As a jurist, Judge Roberts' approach will be that of his entire career: carefully, faithfully applying the Constitution and legal precedent. He is a mainstream judge, respected across the ideological spectrum. Thus, he's earned praise from liberal icons such as Harvard Law Professor Larry Tribe, and Chicago Law Professor Cass Sunstein, as well as from Clinton...
  • Donald Trump Calls Chief Justice John Roberts a 'Nightmare for Conservatives'

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has "turned out to be a nightmare for conservatives," and put some of the blame for Roberts' presence on the Court on 2016 rival Sen. Ted Cruz. "Cruz fought like hell to get Justice Roberts in there. Justice Roberts turned out to be an absolute disaster, he turned out to be an absolute disaster because he gave us Obamacare." Trump told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday. Trump repeatedly went after Cruz, who served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Chief Justice William...
  • The Two Faces of Lawrence Tribe – He is Right and Wrong About Ted Cruz

    Conservative Review ^ | January 19th, 2016 | Hans von Spakovsky
    Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe’s view of the Constitution and the “natural born” citizen issue seems to blow with the political winds.  Why has his view completely switched from 2008?  Is it because, as Sen. Ted Cruz said at the Republican debate on Jan. 14, Tribe is a “left-wing judicial activist” and “a major Hillary Clinton supporter?”  Whatever the reason, Tribe’s current assertions about the issue are wrong and Donald Trump may want to think twice before he again cites Tribe as an “expert”.In a prior article, I explained the legal interpretation of the requirement in Article II, Sec. 1...

    Thursday on MSNBC following FBN's broadcast of the Republican presidential debate, Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe attacked Sen. Ted Cruz , one of the participants in last night debate, for his stated on reasoning for his eligibility to run for president of the United States. According to Tribe, Cruz applies a double standard to his interpretation of the Constitution, to which he deemed Cruz to be a "constitutional opportunist" and a "hypocrite." "I've done a lot of historical research on it, and so have a lot of other people, and the best evidence seems to be that what they...
  • Obama's Law Professor: I Wouldnt Bet on Obamacare Surviving the Next Legal Challenge

    President Obamas old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he wouldnt bet the family farm on Obamacares surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts. I dont have a crystal ball, Tribe told the Fiscal Times. But I wouldnt bet the family farm on this coming out in a way that preserves Obamacare. The laws latest legal problem is that, as written, people who enroll in Obamacare through the federal exchange arent eligible for subsidies. The text of the law only provides subsidies...

    Ive obtained a copy of an interesting letter that Harvard law professor Larry Tribe wrote to his protg, President Barack Obama, in the immediate aftermath of Justice Souters announcement of his decision to retire from the Court. I will post a PDF of the letter shortly. [Update: Heres the letter.] In the meantime, Ill call attention, in this post and two or three others, to some of its highlights. The express purpose of Tribes letter is to urge that Obama nominate Elena Kagan to the Souter vacancy. But before making his affirmative case for Kagan, Tribe argues strongly against the...

    The American Thinker ^ | July 14, 2010 | James Lewis
    There's a funny story about Barack Obama at Harvard Law, both funny-ha-ha and funny-peculiar. It involves one of those cloud-borne Himalayan intellects of liberalism, Professor Larry Tribe, the Tyler Professor of Constitutional Law at one of the most prestigious law schools in the United States. Tribe is the legal giant who is always a bridesmaid but never a bride for the Supremes. And yea verily, the Professor met and held converse with The Blessed Lightworker Himself back in the nineties. The story doesn't say if they were both stoned out of their minds when they got together, but it's the...

    By James A. Barnes, National Journal National Journal Group Inc. Monday, March 31, 2008 If potential presidents can be judged by how they run their campaigns, then how they staff those efforts may provide important clues to the kinds of talent they would recruit for their administrations. Because Democratic front-runner Barack Obama is a relative newcomer to national politics, an examination of his inner circle of political and policy advisers offers new windows into his thinking, leadership style, and sources of expertise. The Democratic front-runner's team has a relatively shallow bench, but its political achievements thus far are quite...
