The Supreme Court Could Decide American Unions’ Fate Early Next Year (Video)

Last year, public sector unions dodged a bullet after the U.S. Supreme Court deadlocked on the Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association (CTA) case that threatened to eliminate fair share fees, aka union dues, that support strong collective bargaining efforts. Before that it was the 2014 Harris v. Quinn case. Now the war on public sector unions has returned with Janus v. American […]

The religious right insists that all it wants to do is give Americans with “traditional values” a place at the table.

Roy Moore Says Taking A Knee Is Illegal, The First Amendment Disagrees (TWEETS)

The right is almost unanimous in its view about NFL players protesting police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem. To hear them talk, it’s disrespectful of both the flag and our troops past and present. Many of them have denounced the players in terms that are slight variations on Donald Trump calling […]

WATCH: Supreme Court Finally Agrees To Weigh In On The Corrosive Effects of Gerrymandering

The Supreme Court is once again stepping in to determine whether an electoral procedure as old as the republic violates the Constitution. Monday, the nation’s highest court announced it will begin looking into gerrymandered election maps for evidence of discrimination against minorities.

A number of Republicans, especially those aligned with the religious right, held their noses and voted for Donald Trump, despite his many outrages, for only one reason–a chance to maintain the conservative majority on the Supreme Court. The Republicans in the Senate even went as far as to throw a year-long tantrum to keep President […]

SCOTUS Horrified By Trump Administration Attitude Towards Citizenship (VIDEO)

The Supreme Court took the logic of the Trump administration to task this week, and they were horrified at the results.

Neil Gorsuch’s First Ruling Just Killed A Man (VIDEO)

We all remember Neil Gorsuch. He’s the newly appointed Supreme Court Justice that filled the seat stolen from former President Barack Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland.

NC GOP Deep-Sixes Outrageously Homophobic Bill–They CAN Read The Constitution (VIDEO, TWEETS)

Two weeks ago, North Carolina lawmakers repealed the state’s monstrously homophobic House Bill 2 in a way that didn’t make anyone happy. They replaced it with a bill that reset bathroom access standards to where they were before HB2 was rammed through the legislature in a mere 12 hours last spring. However, it also barred local governments […]

WATCH Orrin Hatch Lose It On-Air When Accused Of Having A Supreme Court ‘Double Standard’

It’s so much fun to watch as Republicans prove just how incredibly craven and hypocritical they are when it comes to appointing justices to the United States Supreme Court.

Andrew Napolitano Doubles Down On Wiretapping BS (VIDEOS, TWEETS)

Two weeks ago, Fox News Channel’s senior judicial analyst, Andrew Napolitano, touched off an international incident when he claimed that British intelligence wiretapped Donald Trump at Barack Obama’s behest.

SCOTUS Slams Trump Hard With Ruling To Limit His Power (VIDEO)

Sometimes the biggest news stories are barely reported. Sometimes everyone in the media gets so swept up in the juicy stuff that the more important stories get lost. Last week was the perfect example of that imbalance. While everyone in the country seemed to be obsessing about Russian links and secret late night visits to […]

Andrew Napolitano Boasts And Proclaims The Next SCOTUS Seat Is His (VIDEOS)

Donald Trump’s standards for acceptable behavior from government officials is alarmingly low. After all, Sean Spicer still has a job despite planting a fake news story. Sebastian Gorka still has a job despite calling a private citizen at night to shake him down. And Steve Bannon is still Trump’s eminence grise despite the litany of anecdotes […]

A lot of people on both sides of the aisle have cringed at Donald Trump’s ham-handed intimidation of the district and appellate judges who blocked his travel ban.

Chuck Schumer Warns Neil Gorsuch: Prove You’re Not On The Trump Train Or Face A Filibuster (VIDEO)

On the surface, one of the best moments of the week came when Donald Trump’s own nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, said he found Trump’s ham-handed attempt to intimidate the judiciary into going along with his travel ban “disheartening” and “demoralizing.” Even better, the White House twisted itself into a pretzel trying to deny Gorsuch actually used […]
