Confirming Judge Gorsuch within these first 100 days was imperative. The GOP finally did something required of them. The absurd tantrums by the Democrats continue to highlight their irrelevance. Now all the GOP has to do is take the reins on more issues. But the problem with that, of course, is the fact they they. too, are part of the bureaucracy which is genuinely threatened by Trump reforms. Our work as the grassroots has never been more important. This next year is key if we are to save the country from disconnected, malevolent bureaucrats. Via Washington Times. Republicans triggered the “nuclear option” Thursday, changing the rules to ensure that Supreme Court nominees can never be blocked by partisan filibusters and...

This is very, very bad and an example of the consequence of a SCOTUS without Justice Scalia. When they tie, the case before them stands. That’s what’s happened here when with Scalia we would have dealt a major blow to public employee unions scams and increased personal and workplace freedom. This is the first case decide without Justice Scalia. This makes the importance of the next president even more clear, if it wasn’t already. Yet, some GOP elites still prefer Hillary despite knowing what’s at stake. You may see headlines today from idiot liberals saying SCOTUS “sided” with unions, but that’s not true. This can be revisited with another case but we must have the right president nominate the right...

Can we believe them? Have they finally realized we’re in charge? We must keep an eye on this, I personally don’t trust them. Everyone must be ready to call not just about this but about the Gitmo closure as well. Keep your powder dry… Via UPI. Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee say they have come to a consensus that there should be no hearings on a Supreme Court nominee this year to replace Justice Antonin Scalia. “We believe the American people need to decide who is going to make this appointment rather than a lame-duck president,” The Hill quoted Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn of Texas as saying after a special meeting of the Judiciary Committee. Sen. Lindsey...

Apparently, the Feds had the power to confiscate crops from farmers, under the guise of “stabilizing market prices.” Another one of FDR’s “power grab” rules. Via Fox News: The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the government can’t force raisin farmers to give up part of their annual crop for less than it’s worth, a victory for conservative groups that hailed the decision as a win for private property rights. The justices ruled 8-1 that a 1940s-era program born out of the Great Depression is unconstitutional because it allows federal officials to seize personal property from farmers without fully compensating them, even though the goal is to benefit farmers by stabilizing market prices. The court sided with California farmers Marvin...

When I heard that Ruth Bader Ginsburg, along with all the other SC Justices, ruled in favor of a Muslim prisoner who petitioned to keep his beard, in violation of Arkansas prison rules, I thought that maybe she had “found religion.” Or something. But, no. Ginsburg is a Leftist. And, for some inexplicable reason, Leftists typically jump to defend Muslims. Christians? Not so much. Of course, we want her to remain healthy enough to stay on the SC for another two years, until the GOP takes over the WH. So, here’s hoping Ruth will take lots o’ power naps. (See pic above, taken at the SOTU this Tuesday) Via Wall Street Journal: Justice Ginsburg’s Religious Flip ….Recall that five Justices...

**Bumped Up From TAM Wire. Posted By naga5** I saw this article on HotAir and it fell from interest, so I am bringing it up again. The Supreme Court upheld that Fred Korematsu violated an Executive order that gave the military authority to force Japanese Americans to leave their homes and report to an internment camp. He refused and was arrested. The majority held that wars cause hardships and arresting citizens because of race is part of the hardship. In retrospect, the violation of due process, habeas corpus and the Court’s own violation of “strict scrutiny” should allow the Supreme Court to strike this down and Justice Scalia seems to agree. He strikes an ominous note by warning us that...

In the world of fairy tales, Jack, an impetuous boy, obtained magic beans that led to an encounter with a giant. Jack not only slew the giant, he took the giant’s treasure including the hen that laid golden eggs. In real life, the giants usually win and keep all the gold. We shall see if that holds up next year when the Supreme Court hears the case of Bowman vs Monsanto. The corporate giant Monsanto sells genetically modified soybean seeds that are resistant to Roundup, an herbicide manufactured by Monsanto. Monsanto makes a lot of money selling the seeds and they have a patent on them. The farmer who buys the seeds is obligated to buy new seeds for every...
