With the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy and the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the nation is focused, once again, on the make-up of the Supreme Court. And yet Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the best-known member of the current court; at 85 she continues to be a cultural phenomenon. A documentary about her life is a smash hit and she's become a hero to young women, earning the moniker "The Notorious RBG," with her name plastered on mugs, t-shirts, even baby clothes. Now, however, comes a release more personal — a series of songs written about her... [Read More]

Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement, leading to President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, has thrown progressives, the Democratic Party and the news media into an out-and-out tizzy. The online magazine Slate declared, "Anthony Kennedy Just Destroyed His Legacy as a Gay Rights Hero." The New York Times' editorial board said about a second Trump court appointment, "It is a dark moment in the history of the court and the nation, and it's about to get a lot darker." It's indeed a "dark moment" for those who've for decades used the courts to accomplish what would... [Read More]

Having won President Trump's nomination to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, Judge Brett Kavanaugh still faces many weeks of grueling Senate meetings and interviews before the all-important confirmation vote. The big question is, will the Senate be asking the right questions? Given the enormous power the U.S. Supreme Court wields today, it's understandable that we... [Read More]
"Remember the Merrick!" It sounds like it could be a rallying cry for the Spanish-American War and it might as well be, because it's so quaint and naive. Instead, it's the closest thing the Democrats have to a strategy for trying to stop the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Bless their hearts. Democrats are justifiably angry that President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland — a man who Sen. Orrin Hatch had repeatedly praised for his qualifications and intellect — never even got a confirmation hearing. Especially in hindsight,... [Read More]

Trump's conservative Supreme Court bench, which would be completed by his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, could overrule Roe v. Wade, eliminating women's constitutional right to abortion. In some European countries, the judicial appointment process is designed to ensure the court's ideological balance, and justices work together to render consensus-based decisions. Many European countries ensure that all sides of the political spectrum have a say in choosing constitutional court judges. Numerous studies on decision-making find that groups make better decisions when they take into account a diversity of perspectives. United States President Donald Trump has nominated Brett...

President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy left by retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has predictably produced apoplexy on the left. Their certainty — and outrage — that one man will have the power to dispense rights they view to be nonexistent, and dispense with others they consider inalienable, only shores up a fact that the left will almost never admit: The federal government has far too much power.
