The New York Times Editorial Board urged Democrats on Sunday to fight President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee by taking a page from the movie “The Godfather” and “go to the mattresses” to prevent the court from moving solidly to the right. With Republicans controlling the Senate and the judicial filibuster dead, the Democrats’ odds of […]
The Washington Post Fact Checker took a look at Democrats’ claims that the Senate shouldn’t consider President Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee until after the midterm elections in November so that the voters could be heard on this matter. On June 27, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the Republicans hypocrites for wanting to move […]
No one had anything good to say about the Supreme Court ruling Monday, according to the Washington Post. The Supreme Court ruled that companies can require workers to settle employment disputes through individual arbitration rather than class-action lawsuits. “The court’s conservative majority said that the 5-to-4 ruling was a logical reading of federal law, and Congress’s […]

He was President Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, and the interesting fact is that he is the first former clerk to take a position while his former boss was still on the court. Who was his former boss on […]
Looks like the liberals lost on this one, where the Democrats forced the Republicans’ hand to invoke the “nuclear option” (i.e. dismantle the filibuster) and followed the example of former Democratic U.S. Senator Harry Reid. This allowed the GOP to confirm President Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. But, the liberals tried to derail […]
Fact-check: True. CNN correctly pointed out that the Democratic Party had used the “nuclear option” in the Senate to get their way, which means that the Democrats lowered the vote threshold from the long-established 60 votes to a simple majority to pass legislation.

It’s rather ironic that the liberal media, which claims to be the gatekeepers of democracy, have forgotten about Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s warnings in the wake of the Obergefell ruling.
