    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday let an unidentified foreign government-owned company appeal under seal a grand jury subpoena possibly related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 election, and the firm said a ruling against it would “wreak havoc” on American foreign policy. The case has remained a high-profile mystery, with the Supreme Court and lower courts declining to identify the company, the country that owns it or the purpose of the subpoena. The company is facing a daily fine of $50,000 imposed by a U.S. federal judge in Washington for refusing...
  • Anti-Christian Ideology Is an Emerging Aspect of White Progressive Populism

    One striking feature of left-wing hostility to conservative Christianity is its insistence that opposition to secular progressive morality is proof of malign intent. Instead of asking whether progressive intolerance (or the selection of a corrupt Democratic candidate) played any part in the 81 percent white Evangelical opposition to Hillary Clinton, all too many progressives use that level of united opposition as grounds for further hatred. And, yes, there’s also the condescending sympathy: “They’re brainwashed by Fox. They’re voting against their interests.” Last summer I wrote an essay called the Great White Culture War. I argued that a great deal of...
  • The Democrats Chose Hate. The Women’s March is the Result Farrakhan problem isn’t going anywhere

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Like a preacher tiptoeing out of a brothel, the Democrat Party quietly dropped its sponsorship of the Women’s March. Like most of the other lefty establishment groups slowly backing away from its pro-Farrakhan leadership, the DNC offered a non-denial and no condemnation of the group’s anti-Semitism. Instead of condemning the March’s anti-Semitism, the Southern Poverty Law Center explained that it wasn’t going to sponsor it because “other projects were a priority.” Even though HRC and...
  • Supreme Court will review gun restrictions for first time in nearly a decade (New York)

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it will examine New York City’s ban on carrying a licensed and unloaded handgun outside the city limits, the first Second Amendment challenge it has accepted in nearly a decade. The decision to hear the case in the term that begins in October may signal that the reinforced conservative majority on the court is ready to consider more laws that restrict gun rights. New York’s law is not replicated elsewhere: It permits transporting handguns only to firing ranges within the city. Those who challenged the law have a licenses to keep a handgun at...

The Archdiocese of Baltimore condemns the disrespect shown toward a Native American elder during the March for Life. Respect for life demands all are treated with dignity. — ArchdioceseBaltimore (@archbalt) January 20, 2019 Without apologizing to the boys for its rash accusation, the Baltimore Archdiocese released a statement to “clarify” its earlier declaration, acknowledging that “the circumstances of this confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial are now being reported as more complex and it will be the responsibility...

    Washington Examiner - Editorial ^ | 1-22-2019 | (Editor in general)
    (snip) Look only at her two years in the Senate and two relevant data points pop up. First, there’s her recent attempt, along with Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, to apply an anti-Catholic religious test to a judicial nominee because he belonged to the Knights of Columbus. This was too much even for her fellow Democrats to bear — not a single one objected to a resolution that implicitly rebuked Harris and Hirono for their behavior. The second relevant point is Harris’ conduct during the Justice Brett Kavanaugh hearings. No, not the contentious second round of Kavanaugh hearings involving sexual misconduct...

The court, however, did not agree to review the legality of the new policy until the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a ruling.

    Christian Post ^ | 01/21/2019 | Travis Weber
    Vice President Pence’s wife Karen has come under withering attack in recent days from many in the media. From this “reporting,” one might think she has transgressed some obvious social boundary of a civilized society. In reality, the big “scoop” is that this Christian wife and mother, whose Christian beliefs are important to her, is teaching at a Christian school, which being Christian, holds to Christian beliefs about marriage. Yet you wouldn’t know that from reading the headlines about her, which lead the reader to believe that the driving force of Karen’s actions is the targeting of those who identify...

    One aspect of the Covington controversy has received very little coverage, let alone condemnation: the outright racism, homophobia, and anti-Semitism of the (very small) black-nationalist group confronting the teenagers. If you watch the nearly two-hour YouTube video, filmed by a man who seems to be a member of the Black Israelites, you will see the black men, all adult, hurling insult after insult at the students, for well over an hour. It seems accidental that the students and the black nationalists are at the same spot on the mall — the former waiting for their buses back to Kentucky and...

Neguse held a small meet-and-greet with Colorado residents where he was asked, “Looking ahead at the whole impeachment thing, do you see Kavanaugh as like a key part of that?” The man asking the question added, “Are you going to try to use his perjury against him?”Rep. Neguse replied, “So I think that’s another thing that will come up before the judiciary committee.” He continued, “There’s no question that he committed perjury, right? In the last…during the confirmation hearings and so forth. So I think the judiciary...

    New tensions are flaring on the Senate Judiciary Committee over plans by newly minted Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to dig into Obama-era scandals. Graham, a close ally of President Trump’s, has outlined several areas he wants to probe now that he has the Judiciary Committee gavel. They include the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications targeting former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), asked about Graham’s plans, started laughing and compared them to the “thrilling days of yesteryear.” “This is going to be...

    SAN FRANCISCO — With the growing recognition that prosecutors hold the keys to a fairer criminal justice system, the term “progressive prosecutor” has almost become trendy. This is how Senator Kamala Harris of California, a likely presidential candidate and a former prosecutor, describes herself. But she’s not. Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false...

    Freshman Sen. Kamala Harris of California is already bored with representing just her own state. Only in office since 2017, over the weekend she declared that she’s running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, becoming the latest to join a crowded field of donkey party candidates who are all hoping to unseat POTUS Donald Trump. Talk about ambition. As of yet, she’s not done much to distinguish herself from the other Leftist lunatics; like them, she’s proven herself to be the same kind of an anti-Christian bigot who, no doubt, wants to be president but only for part of America.

    Recently, President Trump announced his 19th (yes, nineteenth) round of judicial nominees. The president has not only had two outstanding Supreme Court justices successfully confirmed, fulfilling a key campaign promise, but also has appointed a record number of lower federal court judges. With a new majority in the Senate, these well-qualified nominees should not have trouble being confirmed. It’s impossible to imagine victories like these without the vision and courage of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Justice Antonin Scalia’s death was not only a great loss, it was a moment of turmoil for our nation that tested the resolve of...

    US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is going to make a cameo appearance in the new Lego movie. Justice Ginsburg, known affectionately to her supporters as the "Notorious RBG", will appear as a Lego minifigure - complete with gavel and robes. She was not required to do voice work for the film, but has given filmmakers permission to use her likeness. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part - a sequel to the 2014 film The Lego Movie - is due to be released on 8 February. Producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord say they were "trying to think...

    Mueller, the wall impasse, the shutdown, the "postponement" of the SOTU – all are skirmishes in the undeclared war on President Trump waged by Democrats, the Deep State, and the compliant media. A decisive battle will be enjoined if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or resigns this year. Nothing scares the left more than the prospect of Trump filling another seat on the SCOTUS with a young, fire-breathing constitutionalist who would join with Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh to form a conservative bloc for the ages. Pelosi and Schumer are praying that Justice Ginsburg survives and remains on the bench until...
