Excellent news. More Trump appointees, and soon we won’t refer to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals as the “Ninth Circus” 🙂 Via BizPac Review. President Trump scored a judicial victory as the Senate confirmed another of his nominees for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Despite objections from California’s Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, the party line vote of 53-45 confirmed attorney Daniel Bress to the historically liberal court on Tuesday…. Harris slammed the confirmation following the vote as a “degradation of Senate institutional norms at the hands of Republican leaders.”…. . “Degradation of Senate institutional norms?” No, Kamala, it’called w-i-n-n-i-n-g 🙂 Call the Waaaaaaaaaaaambulance! Orange Man Bad, and he's getting everything he wants! #DianneFeinstein #KamalaHarris https://t.co/VDpvzGZ95w...

Of course. These people are supposed to recuse themselves when they have a conflict of interest. Clearly the lack of respect liberals have for the Rule of Law has infected the bench as well. The Trump administration should immediately appeal to vacate this decision. Via Fox News Insider. Federal Judge William Orrick III, who on Tuesday blocked President Trump’s order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, reportedly bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars for President Barack Obama. Orrick, of the Northern District of California, issued an injunction against the Trump administration after the city of San Francisco and county of Santa Clara sued over the president’s plan to withhold federal funds from municipalities that harbor illegal immigrants. As FoxNews.com...

Obama never surprises. Via Free Beacon. One of President Obama’s potential candidates for the Supreme Court has a history of defending some of Iowa’s most infamous criminals, including the “Midwest Pipe Bomber” and the child molester who murdered five-year-old Evelyn Miller. Judge Jane Kelly, who was appointed to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2013, is reportedly on President Obama’s short list for the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia. Before becoming a judge, Kelly worked for years as a public defender in Iowa. In 2005, Kelly was the appointed attorney for a 26-year-old man named Casey Frederiksen, who was charged with possession of child pornography. Although Frederiksen had previously been convicted of sexual assault involving a...

Pay to play! Typical and not surprising. Via Free Beacon. The White House has reportedly narrowed its list of potential Supreme Court nominees down to five people, and four of them have donated to Barack Obama’s political campaigns. The five federal judges who will be interviewed by the White House for the nomination are federal judges Sri Srinivasan (who has donated $4,250 to Obama), Jane Kelly ($1,500 to Obama), Paul Watford ($1,000 to Obama), Ketanji Brown Jackson ($450 to Obama), and Merrick Garland, who has not donated to Obama. None of the judges are major political donors and the contributions made to Obama account for the majority of each judge’s political giving. The donation from Jackson is the only federal...

This is bad news for Hillary and a big victory for Judicial Watch and for all of us. Hillary, I think, may be having some Maalox (and vodka?) sent over. Without a group like Judicial Watch none of this would be happening. Via Politico A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that top Hillary Clinton staff should be questioned under oath about her use of a private email — another potential setback to the Democratic frontrunner’s effort to leave the email controversy behind. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan granted a motion for discovery filed by Judicial Watch, which sued the State Department for Clinton-related documents and is now arguing there is “reasonable suspicion” that Clinton or State staff tried to...

Did you catch this story? Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed last week by a machete-wielding intruder at his vacation home in the West Indies, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said Monday. The 73-year-old Breyer, wife Joanna and guests were confronted by the robber around 9 p.m. EST Thursday in the home Breyer owns on the Caribbean island of Nevis...

Outrageous. And people wonder why we’re going to heck in a handbasket. When a sitting US Supreme Court Justice tell an emerging nation that the US Constitution is not something worth copying, it exposes the utter depravity of leftists everywhere. After all, how can you expect justice and fair interpretation of the Constitution by someone who doesn’t even hold the document in high, or any, regard? Another reason why we must have a Tea Party Revolution on November 6, Imagine what the message this comment sends Egyptians, and Islamists, everywhere? Even one of our own justices doesn’t think highly enough of our founding document to recommend it. It gives cave men everywhere aid and comfort. Allahpundit has some excellent comments...

Inevitable when exempting some from the Rule of Law is policy. A Utah man who claimed to be an illegal immigrant from Mexico to avoid going to prison is now wanted by police after he returned to the United States and acknowledged his true identity to a judge. Jaime Alvarado, 27, of Salt Lake City, was charged Wednesday in Utah’s 3rd District Court with a second-degree felony for giving false material statements and a misdemeanor charge for giving false personal information to a peace officer. The charges stem from a 2010 arrest when Alvarado told Salt Lake City police, a Utah state courts judge and federal immigration officials that he was actually Saul Quiroz and had emigrated from Mexico illegally....

This is the right verdict, made possible very likely to corruption of the Italian prosecutor being revealed. The turnaround is so distinct, the Italian people originally hated Amanda Knox, and tonight cheered the new verdict. Congratulations to the Italians for doing the right thing. The bad news, of course, is that the Italian police have clearly botched the Meredith Kercher murder investigation with what has been termed as a “vendetta” against Knox. Now they will have to start again, years after the originally murder. In addition to Knox being cleared, so was her then-boyfriend who had been convicted as well. Amanda Knox freed: cleared of murder of Meredith Kercher

A post by Pat A fascinating lapse from a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Schumer, in speaking about raising the debt limit, urged the three branches of government to work together. That is the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Sen. Schumer complained that the Roberts Court turned back the clock 100 years in the Citizens United decision. Apparently what he really meant was the Supreme Court is no longer relevant as far as he’s concerned.

Here’s the linkage, and of course I will discuss all the details on Tammy Radio. This care relates to the Virginia challenge (thanks Virginia!!). Next Thursday a judge in Florida hears arguments in the challenge brought by 20 states. This is a good start but we have a long way to go. More soon. WSJ: Judge Calls Health Law Unconstitutional A federal judge ruled Monday that a central plank of the health law violates the Constitution, dealing the biggest setback yet to the Obama administration’s signature legislative accomplishment. In a 42-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson said the law’s requirement that most Americans carry insurance or pay a penalty “exceeds the constitutional boundaries of congressional power.” […] Judge...

A post by Pat A Minnesota appeals court ruled against five TV stations seeking to view the sealed and unused absentee ballots from the 2008 Franken-Coleman election. Sealed ballots are private data until opened by an election judge. The media group argued now that the election is over, the public is entitled to see those ballots. Court: Media can’t see sealed absentee ballots from 2008 election The Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled today that news media should not be allowed to look at absentee ballots that were sealed and never opened during the marathon vote recount during the 2008 U.S. Senate election won by Al Franken The suit was filed by five television stations –KSTP-TV, KSTC-TV, WDIO-TV, KAAL-TV and KSAX-TV,...

A post by Pat The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled drunken drivers who can’t speak English have to be informed about a breathalyzer test in a language they can understand otherwise their rights are being violated. Three years ago, German Marquez rear-ended a car. He was arrested for drunk driving and for refusing to take a breathalyzer test. Police are required to read a warning to suspected DWI drivers about the consequences of refusing the test. The police did read the 11-paragraph warning to Mr. Marquez in English, but he doesn’t understand English. Not fair says the NJ Supreme Court NJ Supreme Court says non-English speaking DWI suspects must know rights “In essence, reading the standard statement to motorists in...
