  • How Liberal Judges Took Control of 70 Percent of US Appeals Courts

    On the campaign trail in 2008, Barack Obama promised to fundamentally transform the United States of America. After nearly eight years as president, he has delivered on one front by reshaping the federal judiciary. That revolution has been comprehensive, dramatic, and under the radar. When Obama entered the Oval Office, liberal judges controlled just one of the 13 circuits of the U.S. Court of Appeals. Fifty-five successful presidential nominations later, liberal majorities now control nine of those appeals benches, or 70 percent.

    Dear Fellow Conservative, I'm reaching out to you today because I need your support to continue fighting in the U.S. House of Representatives against President Obama's big government agenda. A major development has just occurred in my race for the U.S. House of Representatives and I'm asking for your immediate help... ...You see, in retaliation for repeatedly standing up to President Obama on the national stage, liberal judges have redrawn the lines of my Minnesota Congressional District to try and wipe me off of the political map once and for all. Their bias was so obvious they even gerrymandered...

    INDIANAPOLIS | Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes. In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer's entry.

    Back in November, we editorialized that to get a better idea of how credible is the conviction of Tom DeLay, "look to the sentencing phase." Well, the sentence has been rendered and it's easy to see that the conviction has virtually no credibility.

    There is an unstoppable force that drives a person if he willingly submits. I've seen this force a few times, most piercingly with Judy and Mike Miller (not their real names). The Millers were the most disturbed, and disturbing, couple I have ever worked with. Mike Miller molested all three of their daughters. Each time a daughter was removed, the couple responded by having another one. Although their behavior was monstrous, they didn't present as monsters. Mike was an affable, gangly man with a vacant stare. Judy was bubbly and effervescent. When she visited her children in our dark and...

    NEW YORK --- A right-wing New Jersey blogger was convicted at his third trial Friday of making threats against three federal judges in Illinois in retaliation for a ruling supporting gun control. A Brooklyn jury deliberated less than two hours before finding Hal Turner guilty of making death threats. A judge jailed Turner, of North Bergen, N.J., following the verdict. His attorney declined comment. Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, thanked the jurors for their service. "There is no place in society for threatening federal judges with violence. Period," he said in a statement....

    ( - Conservative legal experts say a federal district judge in Wisconsin had no legal basis for declaring the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional – and predict the decision cannot stand. “If the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional, then the Constitution itself if unconstitutional,” Mathew Staver, president of Liberty Counsel and dean of the Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Va., told The judge agreed with the atheist group, and based her decision, in part, on the fact that atheists “feel” marginalized by the law, which directs the president to declare a National Day of Prayer.

    Federal Bench: Yet another judicial nominee seeks to impose the "empathy" standard on the courts. He thinks judges should base rulings on a plaintiff's status, legislate from the bench and amend the Constitution. Indiana federal judge David Hamilton stands poised to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate to assume a seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals serving Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. He's a former fundraiser for Acorn and a former leader of the Indiana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. He is also another in a series of activist judges who believe the U.S. Constitution is not...
  • SJC: Retirement does not necessarily end alimony payments (More garbage from MA)

    In Massachusetts, marriage really still does mean until death do you part -- even after divorce. The Supreme Judicial Court today rejected a push to stop most alimony payments when someone reaches retirement age. The decision, which came in the divorce case of a former federal magistrate and state judge, noted that alimony payments can be lowered or, in some cases, cut off to reflect a person's actual income after retirement.

    A Maryland judge sentenced an illegal immigrant to more than seven years in prison for coercing a 14-year-old girl into prostitution and forcing her to engage in sex with more than 25 men a day, according to federal prosecutors in Maryland. Javier Miguel Ramirez, 35, a Mexican national living in Hyattsville, was sentenced Monday to 87 months in prison, followed by five years of supervised release for sex trafficking of a minor girl. He had pleaded guilty in March. U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said the case was one of the most shameful human trafficking cases he’s seen. “Javier Miguel...

    ANNAPOLIS — A state lawmaker wants to remove the judge who dismissed charges against a suspected rapist after she could not find an interpreter who spoke the suspect's native language. Delegate Patrick L. McDonough, Baltimore County Republican, introduced the proposal yesterday to impeach Montgomery County Judge Katherine D. Savage. "The idea behind this is to send a message to the judiciary that the General Assembly, under the constitution, has the responsibility and the authority to oversee judicial decisions," Mr. McDonough said. Mrs. Savage dismissed charges against Mahamu Kanneh, a Liberian immigrant, after the court delayed the trial three years because...

    NEW BEDFORD - A convicted sex offender arrested this week on charges of raping a 6-year-old boy in the public library had been released from prison a year ago, despite the strenuous objections of the district attorney and three psychologists who argued that he posed a serious threat to children. Superior Court Judge Richard Moses denied the prosecutor's motion to keep Corey Saunders in custody indefinitely, arguing that he had a low IQ and had suffered physical and sexual abuse as a child. The judge said Saunders, who was sentenced to four years for the attempted rape of a 7-year-old...

    TACOMA, Wash. -- Pierce County prosecutors on Tuesday filed aggravated murder charges against the man accused of killing a young couple in their Graham home. Daniel Thomas Tavares Jr. pleaded not guilty to the charges, which carry the possibility of the death penalty. He's being held without bail. Prosecutors have 30 days to decide whether to seek the death penalty. According to a statement of probable cause filed in court, Tavares admitted to detectives that he shot Brian and Beverly Mauck last weekend in their home and tried to cover up the crime. The court documents state that Tavares said...

    WASHINGTON - Presidential contender Rudy Giuliani has been winning over some conservative Republicans by promising to appoint judges in the mold of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and others who might seem likely to limit the reach of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. Judges he named as New York mayor, however, could never be mistaken for Scalia. Giuliani's promise has helped overcome his abortion rights support as an issue for conservative voters. After all, the next president can do little about abortion except to name judges who interpret the law more strictly. As a result, some prominent conservatives,...

    It turns out Deval Patrick was right about Massachusetts. Magic can happen here. Just ask Vith Ly. Ly is the Cambodian immigrant who kidnapped and raped a co-worker in Lowell when she spurned his affections. In 1990, he was sentenced to three 20-year stretches in MCI-Concord, but a liberal Massachusetts judge set him free on bail while he waited for an appeal. Ly lost the appeal and the court ordered him to serve his hard time. But Ly never showed up. An immigrant, a convicted criminal - Ly’s life was looking pretty lousy. And then the Massachusetts Miracle. The Middlesex...

    CHICAGO: A federal judge in Illinois on Thursday approved a request for a trip to Disney World by a man who the government had once accused of aiding Palestinian militants, brushing aside prosecutors' claims that he may instead flee. "I'm confident that he will come back," U.S. District Judge Amy J. St. Eve said in giving former Chicago grocer Muhammad Salah permission to make the trip to the Florida vacation spot.
