    Why is a beermaker publicly delving into politics, you might ask? It seems like a bone-head move, to paraphrase Joe Biden, but here we are. Boston Beer Company, brewers of Sam Adams beer, are dedicating a new brew to liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and are also supporting the ACLU at the same time.

    A new book on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts offers new details of his negotiation with liberal justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer to save ObamaCare ahead of the court's landmark ruling in 2012, according to excerpts released on CNN. In Joan Biskupic's "The Chief" which is scheduled to release next Thursday, she writes that Roberts originally opposed upholding the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate that required people to buy insurance, and cast his initial vote to strike it down, but he did join the liberal justices in voting to uphold Medicaid expansion, according to the book. He later...

    Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio announced Tuesday on Twitter his intention to introduce a constitutional amendment that would permanently keep the number of Supreme Court justices at nine. “We must prevent further destabilization of essential institutions,” Rubio tweeted. “Court packing is quickly becoming a litmus test for 2020 Democratic candidates. Therefore I will be introducing a constitutional amendment to keep the number of seats on #SCOTUS at 9.”
  • Morning Joe: Unfair to Critique Beto at 16...or Warren at 36!

    Back when Brett Kavanaugh was in the hot seat, Mike Barnicle demanded that Kavanaugh's accusers be believed, claiming they would have to be "totally mentally ill" to lie. But now that the person in question is a potential Dem presidential nominee. Barnicle has predictably changed his tune. On today's Morning Joe, the subject was Beto O'Rourke's recently-revealed writing in which he fantasized about intentionally killing two children with his car. Note that in contrast with the Kavanaugh case, in which the nominee passionately denied engaging in the alleged behavior, O'Rourke admits having written the murder fantasy in question. Even so,...
  • On CBS, Lefty Actress Bashes ‘Unindicted Co-Conspirator’ Trump, Kavanaugh

    Apparently getting arrested is the cool thing to do. CBS's Late Late Show host James Corden on Tuesday interviewed actress Piper Perabo and prompted the Coyote Ugly star to brag about protesting Brett Kavanaugh. After gushing about how “exciting” it was, Perabo proclaimed, “I feel that this president is an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony investigation and he shouldn't be allowed to appoint justices until that matter is cleared up. You shouldn't be allowed to pick your own judges.” Corden uncritically responded, “Sure. Absolutely.” The host made the whole thing sound thrilling, cheering, “It does sound exciting.” Perabo enthused, “It...

    It’s no secret that the top ranks of the Democrat 2020 field have a #MeToo problem. Joe Biden is a walking #MeToo outrage. And one of his presidential campaign leftovers was recently dumped by Schumer’s office for “inappropriate encounters”. Bernie Sanders once wrote, "A woman enjoys intercourse with her man as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously." His campaign was a swamp of sexism, sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by staffers and political allies. And Beto O’Rourke’s former political outreach director has been accused of rape. That kind of behavior inspires Democrat activists to insist that we need...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder has suggested to his fellow Democrats that one way to put their stamp on American history, especially in light of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's and President Trump's agenda, is to expand the Supreme Court. He made the farfetched proposal last week at Yale Law School and Columbia University. "Given the Merrick Garland situation, the question of legitimacy is one that I think we should actually talk about," Holder said. "We should be talking even about expanding the number of people who serve on the Supreme Court, if there is a Democratic President and a...

    The American Civil Liberties Union dealt a blow Monday to Democrats’ new election overhaul legislation, saying the bill does too much damage to the First Amendment and the storied rights group cannot support it. ACLU officials said they support parts of the bill, such as making it easier to register to vote, but said the legislation attempts to control even the mere mention of a politician, which goes too far. “They will have the effect of harming our public discourse by silencing necessary voices that would otherwise speak out about the public issues of the day,” the ACLU’s national political...

    Jack Phillips is the Colorado cake shop owner who was sued by the state's civil rights commission  for not baking a cake for a gay wedding in 2012. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court where Phillips won his appeal against the civil rights commission by 7-2. In that decision, Justice Kennedy drew a clear line in the sand against the radical cultural left. In his decision he singled out a statement by Commissioner Diann Rice: I would also like to reiterate what we said in the hearing or the last meeting. Freedom of religion and religion...

    President Trump, in an expletive-laden speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Saturday, accused FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team of trying to take him out with “bulls---” and accused a top Clinton aide of not having recovered “from getting his a-- kicked.” Trump accused his opponents of moving away from a narrative of Russian collusion as Mueller prepares to file his report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He said that the report was being produced “by people who weren’t elected.” “Unfortunately you put the wrong people in a couple of positions and they leave people...

    The president’s El Paso rally should have been a tricky affair, with the wall, the shutdown, a counter-rally by local Democrat star Beto O’Rourke. But it was a night of wild surprises At the end of Trump rallies, order breaks down and people are tired. To those seeking to shock, injure, annoy or make a point, it’s go time. In El Paso, on the US’s southern border, at Trump’s first campaign-style rally of 2019, two people unfurled the flag of the Soviet Union. This happened inside the El Paso County Coliseum. I was outside in the parking lot, with about...

    WASHINGTON Emily’s List is naming Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Andy Barr as two of its top targets for 2020. The Senate Majority Leader and Barr, a Lexington Republican, are among the first round of candidates the Democratic group that backs women running for office is putting “On Notice” as part of its opposition program targeting 43 House Republicans and six Senate Republicans. Kentucky may be tough for Democrats, who unsuccessfully challenged Barr in 2018, but Stephanie Schriock, president of Emily’s List, said “after flipping the House with Democratic women in 2018, we’re ready to send more Republicans packing...

    About 3-in-4 American voters favor a populist-nationalist “America First” legal immigration, trade, and foreign policy platform from candidates running for office that prioritizes protecting the way of life and economic security of United States citizens above all else. The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds near unanimous support for populist-nationalist candidates among Republicans, conservatives, and President Trump supporters, as well as a majority of support from all voters. The findings are the latest evidence that the open borders, globalization, and endless wars ideology of former administrations — such as President George W. Bush’s — has very little support with the American electorate.

    Democratic senators Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.) have doubled down on their extreme stance on abortion, and Warren in particular has outright defended her vote against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which was defeated in the Senate on Monday in a 53-44 vote. The bill, sponsored by Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.), needed 60 votes to pass. “I think it’s up to a woman to make that decision, and I will always stand by that,” Harris told the Daily Caller on Wednesday, when asked if she believes abortion is immoral. “I think she needs to make that...
  • Our Healthcare Bill Will Outlaw Private Coverage, Eliminate Up to Two Million Jobs, Cover Abortion

    More than 100 House Democrats -- nearly half of the new majority -- have signed on to a new single-payer healthcare bill that supporters describe as "battle ready." If by "battle ready," they mean, "extremely controversial, deeply politically risky, and totally bereft of any acknowledgement of the proposal's eye-poppingly exorbitant costs," they're undoubtedly correct. Politico's story on the legislation is full of extraordinary tidbits and quotes. Here are some of the most important facts we've learned: (1) The bill "doesn’t include a price tag or specific proposals for financing the new system, which analysts estimate would cost tens of trillions...

    MONTPELIER, February 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Vermont’s Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted Thursday to pass a bill many pro-lifers are calling the most extreme of its kind, as it leaves elective abortion virtually unregulated through all nine months of pregnancy. Last month, more than 90 House members cosponsored legislation to codify a “fundamental right” to “have an abortion,” like several other states moving to ensure abortion remains legal regardless of a future Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. “No State or local law enforcement shall prosecute any individual for inducing, performing, or attempting to induce or perform the individual’s...

    I'm a Republican and support Trump's judicial strategy but the perceived legitimacy of the court is more important than one man. When President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, I was thrilled. The judge has a resume that makes him unquestionably qualified to sit on the highest court in the land. Further, I have found the attacks on him made by Democrats until now to be unfounded or pure spectacle made by politicians engaging in theatrics simply because they knew there were cameras on. The sexual assault allegations by Christine Blasey Ford...

    With the arrest Thursday morning of Empire star Jussie Smollett, the actor’s defense team put out a statement celebrating the fact that he was afforded the “presumption of innocence” like any other citizen. But last, year Smollett himself insisted that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent. Jussie Smollett turned himself in early on Thursday morning, and the Chicago Police processed him into the system. Concurrent with his arrest, the actor’s team put out a statement reasserting Smollett’s “presumption of innocence” and slamming the Chicago Police for “leaking” information about the investigation to the press. “Like any...
