SCOTUS Ruling in CA Case Allows Restricted Indoor Religious Services To Resumeby Tammy on February 6, 2021
This is a partial victory, but it is a victory over idiotic, control-obsessed politicians. Americans must continue to use the legal system to put an end to these unconstitutional measures or the establishment will never stop. Via Fox News. The U.S. Supreme Court in a split decision Friday night ruled that houses of worship in California may hold indoor services at 25% capacity, giving a partial win to groups fighting the state’s coronavirus restrictions, according to reports. The high court issued the orders in two cases where plaintiffs had sued over restrictions meant to slow the spread of the virus. The state will be permitted to restrict singing and chanting during services, the court said. Justices Neil Gorsuch and Clarence...
Giuliani Says Fight Not Over After SCOTUS Rejects Texas Challengeby Tammy on December 11, 2020
As I noted on Twitter this evening, I’m Deeply disappointed SCOTUS didn’t even bother to hear the Texas case. The American people deserve at the very least a hearing & opinion explaining in detail. With trust in govt & its legitimacy at stake for a variety of reasons, this does not help. But this is not the time to quit. When General Washington lost New York to the British he didn’t quit. Creating the nation was worth it, so he kept going, against all odds. Saving the country from the malevolent left is the least we owe everyone who gave all creating & protecting our great nation. Via Breitbart. …Giuliani said, “The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case...
Senate Refers Another Woman To DOJ For False Kavanaugh Rape Claimsby Tammy on November 3, 2018
Justice Kavanaugh. The Democrats tried to destroy this man and his family. Thank God they failed, but only because the Republicans stood up for him. This revelation is another example of what Tuesday’s election is all about: rewarding those who are relying on threats, harassment, assault and lies in an effort to bully you into voting for them, or a vision focused on the economy and national security of this nation so the future is secure for your family. The foundation of my commentary during the Justice Kavanaugh hearings about the claims of sexual assault, was the politicizing of this issue would harm the issue as a whole. The entire Democrat Party circus essentially encouraged, invited and then elevated every...
Kavanaugh confirmed to Supreme Court, Securing Rightward Shiftby Tammy on October 6, 2018
Finally, the “Kennedy Seat” is now the Kavanaugh Seat. Judge Kavanaugh is now Associate Justice Kavanaugh. The behavior of the Democrats and their allied groups during this confirmation have united the Republicans in a way not seen for a decade. Liberals once again overestimated themselves and underestimated everyone else. They will regret this in November. Via Fox News. The Senate voted Saturday to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, marking the end to one of the most rancorous confirmation fights in modern times and securing a rightward shift on the nation’s highest court. The chamber voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh, mostly along party lines, after a weeklong FBI probe helped settle concerns among most wavering senators about the...
ICYMI Video: Tammy’s Segment on Hannity About Judge Kavanaughby Tammy on September 19, 2018
In case you missed it or would like to see it again, here is Tuesday night’s Hannity segment about the Democrats’ purely political hatchet job on Judge Kavanaugh. This is not a search for the truth, it’s the search for destruction.

Video: SCOTUS-Protesting Mob Drown Out Their Own Speakerby Shifra on July 11, 2018
A friend who works for the NYC Board of Education called me at 7 pm Monday night. She had just gotten a frantic email from the United Federation of Teachers union, alerting everyone to immediately go to a designated area to protest President Trump’s SCOTUS pick. This was two hours before President Trump’s SCOTUS pick was announced. Because apparently, no matter who would be selected, we are all gonna die. Or something. And, with all the drama and hysteria from the left, this video is perhaps the best speech yet. Because you can’t hear anything. But I, your dedicated shoephone producer, have transcribed the speech, for your listening, um, pleasure: Planned Parenthood!!… flurp…. make no mistake!… boink glurp. US Senate!!!…...
Supreme Court Sides with Baker in Same-Sex Wedding Cake Caseby Tammy on June 4, 2018
This is good news, but they punted in one way– while excoriating the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for their treatment of the baker, they did not ultimately answer the broader issue of religious liberty. So it’s good news in part. Keep in mind, this case is from 2012, so it took 6 years, and the baker lost at every other level of the justice system. That should worry us. Here are the details. Via Fox News. The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, in one of the most closely watched cases of the term. In a 7-2 decision, the justices set aside a Colorado court...
WikiLeaks: How the Left Played Chief Justice Roberts on ObamaCareby Shifra on October 16, 2016
If Hillary wins, we won’t have to worry about any intimidation of the Supreme Court. She will pack the SC with people who will be very happy to do her bidding. Justice Barack Obama, Justice Eric Holder, or Justice Valerie Jarrett, anyone ? Via WSJ. The WikiLeaks email disclosures make fascinating reading about the political calculations of leading progressives, and Chief Justice John Roberts may want to pay particular attention. This week’s leaks show Hillary Clinton ally Neera Tanden laying out a strategy to intimidate the Supreme Court to uphold ObamaCare. Ms. Tanden runs the Center for American Progress, the think tank that is essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign. CAP’s former chief, John Podesta, is now the Clinton...
Breaking: Supreme Court Deadlocks, Thwarting Obama’s Immigration Actionsby Tammy on June 23, 2016
This is due to a 4-4 tie. We are reminded of the importance of Justice Scalia every day, it’s heartbreaking that he left us. I must give the rare kudos to the GOP in the Senate for not capitulating to Obama’s SCOTUS nominee. Anyone nominated by Obama will be a disaster. I don’t care how they wrap him or her. This (non)decision is also reminder that our Republic shouldn’t be at the mercy of a Supreme Court that is so divided between conservative and liberal. And that fact *will* change with the next president. Not only will the Scalia seat need to be filled, but Justice Thomas indicated he would want to retire after the election. His wife, journalist Ginni...
US Supreme Court Rejects Iran Bank’s Bid to Avoid Payout to Attack Victimsby Tammy on April 20, 2016
The fact that we’ve even allowed Iran to have standing in this regard is outrageous. It’s taken over 30 years, and Congress finally had to intervene. This is a good ruling, 6-2, which rejected the notion that a congressional act on this issue somehow violated the separation of powers. The 2 dissenters? John Roberts and Sonia Sotomayor. At this point, with two serious questionable ruling from Roberts, including the inexplicable ObamaCare mandate ruling, it’s clear we must consider Roberts as part of the hardcore liberal framework on the court. As when the onservative ideal is required, he’s AWOL. Another reminder of the importance of the election. The amount in question here is a $2.65 billion dollar judgment for the plaintiffs...
Un-“Wise Latina” Sotomayor Thinks There Are Too Many Jews & Catholics on SCOTUSby Tammy on April 10, 2016
Yes, the woman who said a “wise Latina” would be better on the bench than a white man has now decided there are too many of other sorts of people on SCOTUS in order to be, um, fair. If the Unwise Latina thinks identity politics should direct who’s on the court, what are the odds politics are also affecting her decisions? Very high, I’d say. Via Fox News. Justice Sonia Sotomayor says the Supreme Court needs more diversity, amid the politically charged debate about filling a vacancy on the high court. “I… think there is a disadvantage from having (five) Catholics, three Jews, everyone from an Ivy League school,” Sotomayor, the court’s first Latina justice, said Friday at Brooklyn Law...
Merrick Garland Received Student Deferments to Avoid Vietnam War Draftby Tammy on April 7, 2016
Well, well. Obama’s Supreme Court pick also helped keep ROTC ban in place at Harvard, according to a new report at Free Beacon. Merrick Garland was not eligible to be drafted into military service while he was a student at Harvard University as he took two student deferments during the Vietnam War, according to a copy of Garland’s Selective Service record obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Garland, President Obama’s pick to be put on the U.S. Supreme Court, was granted two student deferments while he was at Harvard, one on Aug. 19, 1971, and another on Dec. 10, 1971. Both were categorized as 2-S deferments which indicate that the “registrant deferred because of activity in study,” according to the...
NBC Anchor Confronts WH Chief of Staff Over Obama’s SCOTUS Hypocrisyby Shifra on March 18, 2016
Flying pigs alert! So nice of NBC to finally wake up…after seven years of Obama Regime lies and hypocrisy Via NewsBusters: In an interview with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on Thursday, Today co-host Savannah Guthrie surprisingly held President Obama accountable for opposing Republican Supreme Court nominees in the past while calling on the GOP to approve his now. After McDonough called on the Senate to “do its job” and allow a vote on Merrick Garland, Guthrie countered:“When it comes to these judicial nominations, perhaps neither side has clean hands entirely. Back when Senator Obama was in office he voted against Justice Robert’s nomination and Justice Alito’s nomination. So is this a case of what’s good for the...
McConnell: Blocking Supreme Court Nomination ‘About A Principle, Not A Person’by Tammy on March 16, 2016
He’s right, for once. I think the GOP realizes there is little to gain by confirming an Obama nominee. SCOTUS is fine with 8 justices, and the next president will nominate right away. But Obama’s show this morning was terrible. He knows the Senate will not confirm, and he doesn’t want Judge Garland confirmed; he is using him as a political prop in an effort to make himself look like something he’s not– a statesman. It’s a shame he’s doing this to the judge and it seemed to me this morning that Judge Garland doesn’t realize how he’s being used. Via NPR. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed again to block President Obama’s Supreme Court nomination Wednesday, saying the American...
