    On the Michigan ballot for Supreme Court there are 6 candidates, you can vote for 2. However if you don't look up beforehand there is no party affiliation to guide your decision. The candidates are: Samuel Bagenstos Megan Kathleen Cavanagh Elizabeth T. Clement Justice of Supreme Court Doug Dern Kerry Lee Morgan Kurtis T. Wilder Justice of Supreme Court In my research it appears that Clement and Wilder are the closest to being conservative. If you agree the easiest way to identify them on your ballot is they both have "Justice of Supreme Court" associated with their names, the others...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee late Saturday released a 414-page report in which the panel members say they found no supporting evidence for any of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation. "Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the #SCOTUS confirmation process," the Senate Judiciary Committee tweeted Saturday. "In neither the committee's investigation nor in the supplemental background investigation conducted by the FBI was there ANY evidence to substantiate or corroborate any of the allegations." The committee...

    A woman who accused Justice Kavanaugh of raping her when he was in high school has admitted to federal investigators that she made up the claims because she was "angry" and "wanted attention." Senator Grassley has now referred the false accuser to the Justice Department for investigation on Friday after her confession that she "just wanted to get attention" on Thursday.

    A woman who accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault admitted to congressional investigators she made up her claims to "get attention."According to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination. From the letter, bolding is mine:  Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3)...

    ISLAMABAD — A Christian woman who spent eight years on death row under Pakistan’s blasphemy law was acquitted and ordered released Wednesday by the country’s top court, a ruling that raised fears of violence by religious extremists who held angry protests over the verdict. Asia Ms. Bibi was in an undisclosed location for her safety, and her lawyer said he expected that she would soon leave the country. France and Spain have offered asylum to the 54-year-old mother of five, who is a Roman Catholic. Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, who had received death threats, announced the landmark verdict that...

    The 2018 midterms are here. It’s close. It was never that way heading into October. The Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh was vicious. It was nasty. It was the weaponization of the Me Too movement in an attempt to clip a qualified judge from taking his spot on the court; Kavanaugh was besieged at the last minute with baseless and unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct. It was a slog, but Kavanaugh was confirmed earlier this month. It also lit a fire under the GOP base, which was at long last energized, infuriated, and ready to vote, especially GOP women....

    The mid-term elections are little more than a week away. Every mid-term election is touted as critical to the future of America, but this one most surely is. Will we provide a can-do Congress for this can-do president or will we lock Washington into gridlock and partisan warfare?Republicans have been able to use the slim advantage in the House and Senate to support President Trump’s agenda. To lose either house of Congress will stall further progress on needed changes until the 2020 election. Here are five reasons to vote for Republican candidates in your local elections.The corporate and individual...
  • Transgender fight could prove major test for Supreme Court

    The fight over civil rights protections for transgender people could prove to be a major test for the Supreme Court, particularly its conservative wing, as justices weigh whether to take up the issue this term. The court has a request before it to hear a case challenging whether civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in employment extend to transgender workers. It’s a dispute that may have a significant impact on the Trump administration’s reported plans to exclude federal protections for transgender people by narrowly defining gender. The New York Time reported last week that the...

    During day one of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) accused him of being beyond “pro-gun” and suggested more people will die in mass shootings if he is confirmed. Feinstein said: “If the Supreme Court were to adopt your reasoning I fear the number of victims would continue to grow and citizens would be rendered powerless in enacting sensible gun laws.”

    Supreme Court justices are signaling that everyone is getting along just fine in the new term despite Justice Brett Kavanaugh's brutal and partisan confirmation battle, and are calling for others to open themselves up to different points of view. “We make progress by listening to each other, and by listening to each other across every kind of divide, divides of ideology, of methodology or in the case of political institutions, politics,” Justice Elena Kagan said during an event at Georgetown University’s law school Wednesday. “Echo chambers are pretty boring places.” Just down the road, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered similar...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) on Thursday referred lawyer Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick — one of the women who accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh of misconduct during his confirmation proceedings — to the Department of Justice for a criminal probe, alleging that they made “materially false” statements to Grassley’s committee as it investigated the allegations. Swetnick said in a September affidavit that Kavanaugh attended a 1982 house party during which she says she was gang raped — an accusation Kavanaugh vehemently denied and said was from the “Twilight Zone.” Grassley said he is asking...

    The animosity and polarization surrounding the judicial confirmation process falls on Congress and its lack of a collaborative spirit, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Wednesday. Speaking at a public event, Ginsburg said collegiality “means understanding the institution you work for is more important than the egos of the individuals,” according to the Washington Post. She did not make reference to Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was confirmed by the Senate earlier this month in a 51-49 vote, with only one Democrat voting for him. Ginsburg noted that she was confirmed in a 96-3 vote, and that the late Justice...
