Supreme Court

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

SCOTUS Gives Trump a Big Win on Immigration

David Catron, The American Spectator

It isn’t the Supreme Court’s job to reflect on the “likely intent” of Congress. The justices can determine the intent of that body by reading the words our representatives put in the laws Congress passes. The intent of the Immigration and Nationality Act can be found in its text. This is why every conservative in the nation should be grateful for the outcome of 2016. Donald Trump is the reason Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are on the Court.

Justice Roberts and a flirtation on the dark side

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has demonstrated an independence from public expectations and he has shown a willingness to vote with the court’s liberal justices on frequent occasion. He may be demonstrating the principled respect for the Constitution and the law that conservatives expected. But it’s too soon to say he has pulled a David Souter and gone over to the dark side. The Roberts record on the High Court shows him to be a generally reliable conservative judge, far more conservative than most of his predecessors.

A critical Supreme Court victory for property rights

Editors, Washington Examiner

A unanimous Supreme Court ruled that law enforcement can no longer make grossly disproportionate seizures of property, even from people who owe money after being convicted of crimes. Hopefully, the Supreme Court will have further opportunities to rule in this matter, putting even tighter limits on the practice of civil forfeiture. But for the time being, Americans can breathe easier. State and local law enforcement will be loath to let another case reach the justices, because they know they are likely to lose.

SCOTUS Hasn’t Had Final Stay in Louisiana Women’s Health Case

Tony Perkins, CNS News

The media's celebration last week, however, may have been premature. Five justices may have put the brakes on the policy now, but there's no way of knowing how the court will rule if and when the case comes before them. Based on Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh's dissents, there is good reason to think the president's new justices would like to see the lawsuit resolved. On one hand, it's disappointing that Louisiana can't move forward with a democratically-enacted policy. On the other, we support the rule of law.

Leftist Judges Are Creating A Pre-Civil War America

The Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott decision authored by Democrat Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was the ultimate expression of the long-held Democrat Party belief that state officials elected as Democrats have the right to impose their will and their laws on the residents of other states.

Fight The Mean-Spirited Democrat Attack On Justice Clarence Thomas

If the Kavanaugh hearings were one brief window into the way the radical violence-prone Democrats operate, their latest campaign against constitutional conservative Justice Clarence Thomas shows just how mean-spirited they are every day.

Liberals Discover the Dangers of a Powerful Supreme Court

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

We can only hope that Brett Kavanaugh’s arrival on the Supreme Court will result in the horrors of which the left warns: government as we know it will disappear, people will be free to live their lives as they wish, and impending progressive political triumphs will be thwarted. Unfortunately, the result is likely to be far more equivocal. Nevertheless, for now schadenfreude offers cause for satisfaction: after spending decades promoting government by judiciary, the left has discovered the wonders of democracy. Maybe eventually they will come to appreciate the value of liberty.

Where’s John Brown When We Need Him?

Today, peaceful “normal” Americans find themselves in much the same position as Free-Soil settlers found themselves in Kansas in the years 1856 to 1858: Democrats are attacking us in our homes and businesses, we are harried and assaulted and government officials seem powerless to defend us or in some cases are even leading the attacks.

New Poll: Kavanaugh Is Only the First Victim of Democrat Smear Campaigns

President Trump and a defiant Judge Kavanaugh refused to cave in to the pressure of Democrat politicians, the media, and left-wing mobs.  Even though the tactic failed, most conservatives expect the Left to use smear campaigns against future Trump appointments, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.

Susan Collins: The Old Republican Establishment’s Finest Hour

Maine’s Senator Susan Collins, is the last of the old-fashioned Northeast establishment Republicans to serve in high public office. We conservatives often disagree with Senator Collins, and we will continue to do so, but one thing we can agree on is that stability, predictability, reliance and fairness are still virtues worthy of admiration and respect during our disagreements.

Kavanaugh FBI Report: No Hint Of Misconduct

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senators to urge Judge Kavanaugh’s prompt confirmation, starting with four Republicans who need shoring up.

The Establishment Media’s Despicable Attempt To Destroy Brett Kavanaugh

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer told Fox News on Wednesday that Kavanaugh isn’t getting a fair shake because most members of the mainstream media “want the Republicans to lose,” and reaction to the FBI probe isn't exactly proving him wrong.

New Poll: Conservatives Say Senate Should Be Voting on Kavanaugh

Conservatives believe that Senate Republicans should have proceeded to vote on and confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court this week, rather than surrendering to Democrat demands for another delay in the process, according to a poll by FedUp PAC.

The Reason For The Public Torture Of Brett Kavanaugh

The new radical Left Democrats are punishing Brett Kavanaugh for his beliefs and would like to see his nomination defeated, but what they’d like to do even more is make sure that no one who shares Brett Kavanaugh’s Christian and constitutional conservative values ever again lets their name be put forward for an appointment to the Supreme Court.
