  • Liberal Professors Launch Campaign To Pack Supreme Court After Kavanaugh Confirmation

    Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh entrenched a 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, leading law professors are urging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation's federal courts and pack them with liberals. Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called "1.20.21 Project," which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter "Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse" of the federal judiciary. That rhetoric reflects the professors' apparent surprise after Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, which they had...

    Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is...

    A fight outside an alternative high school ended with gunfire and two teenage boys dead at a bustling South Side intersection outside the Sox-35th Street CTA Red Line station during the Wednesday afternoon rush hour. About 3 p.m., the boys got into an argument with another group of males near Youth Connection Charter School at 10 W. 35th St., Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said during a press conference near the shooting scene. The boys ran west on 35th Street and the group chased them, with as many as three opening fire at the intersection of LaSalle — just steps...

    Toppling of Confederate statue in North Carolina could make it harder to negotiate a resolution to the fate of other such monuments in the state. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Protesters at North Carolina's flagship university took advantage of a non-confrontational police response to topple a century-old Confederate statue that's long been the target of critics who say it symbolizes racism. Now, backlash over the Monday night takedown could make it harder to negotiate a resolution to the fate of other Confederate monuments in the state — including three on state Capitol grounds being debated Wednesday by a state historical...

    Police arrested a second suspect Thursday in a fatal shooting outside a north Atlanta country club as new details emerged about the leniency granted in an earlier case to the 17-year-old accused gunman. Jayden Myrick, who was arrested in the shooting last month, was “the big test case” for reforming juvenile offenders outside of adult prison, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris Downs told the teenager during a hearing on March 12, according to a transcript made public Thursday. Downs overruled a prosecutor’s insistence that Myrick was dangerous and a request to revoke his probation for an armed robbery he...

    On Monday evening, the Paramount Networks aired the first part of a six-part documentary series on the death of Trayvon Martin called Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. If multimedia impresario Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter had chosen to tell it, there was a story to be told here: a story about a boy bounced around among his biological parents and other relatives after his parents' divorce; a story of a boy whose descent into drugs, guns, fighting, and burglary accelerated after his father left his stepmother, Alicia, his "rock," when Trayvon was 15. There was a story to be told...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Police have cleared the scene of a protest that blocked elevators in a Kentucky building that houses an immigration court. The group Occupy ICE Louisville says a group of people went into the building in downtown Louisville on Thursday morning to protest the separation of immigrant families. The protesters linked their arms together inside plastic tubes. A large number of police outside the building dispersed just before noon as the protesters were taken away in a paddy wagon.

    House Democratic candidates in town this week for training at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington got a visit from AFL-CIO President Richard L. Trumka for some tips on how they can win back working-class voters. “I don’t have to tell you that you can’t count on the D next to your name to gain our support,” Trumka told Democratic leadership and a room full of candidates on Red to Blue, the DCCC’s program for its strongest candidates. This is the first time the labor leader has spoken to DCCC candidates this cycle, though he has done so in...

    A man was left in a Bronx street in the middle of the day after a brutal punch knocked him out, leaving him behind for people to pick his pockets and take pictures of him while he's unconscious, authorities say. Police say two attackers walked up to the 37-year-old man last Monday morning in the area of Aqueduct Avenue and Buchanan Place in University Heights. One of the suspects wound up and delivered a knockout blow on the victim, who then fell to the ground in the middle of the intersection. The attackers then walked away, leaving the unconscious man...

    President Trump’s descriptions of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un included language that he usually reserves for himself. Kim is “very talented,” Trump said at a news conference. Kim’s people have a “great fervor” for him — not entirely voluntarily — and Trump trusts him. Kim is a “rough guy,” but he is also “smart” and “wants a lot of good things” because he “loves his people.” Trump said he had a “great chemistry” with Kim. He would “love to have him at the White House,” but meeting him in Singapore was a “great honor.” Such language is not unusual...

    Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama love statists, Islamists, and dictators. Barack Obama routinely gave away the store to thugs for nothing in return. Most of the world is either Socialist or Communist and it’s nearly impossible to negotiate and maintain peace unless it’s with someone in those groups. Some are far worse than others. The Castro brothers, the Mullahs, many African dictators, Maduro, and Kim Jong-un are among the worst. The media raved over Obama’s and Hillary’s efforts to deal with, some would say cater to, the thugs of other nations, but not so with President Trump.

    On May 1, Jason Bigelow’s body was discovered in an abandoned house near High Point. He had been missing from his Asheboro home for a week, and while the autopsy results are still pending, his wife, Anna, has no doubt what the cause of death was. On April 30, the day before he was found, she posted this on Facebook in one angry, anguished burst: “My husband is missing and no one has heard from him in 6 days. Even in his darkest of times he would have not gone that long without communication. It’s hard to know what...

    The Red Guards is a Maoist group that has chapters throughout the United States, including Los Angeles, where members on May Day burned an effigy of President Trump and called for "revolutionary violence" against "the capitalist state." The group identifies as "antifascist" and aims to duplicate in the United States the anarchy and terror Chairman Mao's Red Guards inflicted on China during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s. Donning masks, the Red Guards of Kansas City marched in the middle of the street without a permit, burned an American flag, waved communist flags, and carried a large banner...

    The Trump administration is being accused of racism for targeting an Obama-era directive compelling schools to ease up on discipline for minority students — even though the policy has made life more difficult for kids, including minorities, stuck in increasingly unruly classrooms. Ask Virginia Walden Ford, who runs a church-based after-school snack program in Little Rock. She was recently surprised when a young, fearful black girl turned up before the end of the school day and admitted she had skipped class. Why? She had been involved in a fight the day before with another girl, but the school had refused...
