November 14, 2013

After a month of taking hits across the political universe, President Obama finally offered a possible way to fix the immediate Obamacare disaster looming at year’s end:  insurance companies won’t be able drop people with coverage for a year.  This is to avoid the massive penalties uninsured or formerly insured people will have to endure [...]

DOMA Goes Down

June 26, 2013

A key provision which denied certain federal benefits to gay couples in the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act was struck down in a 5-4 vote by the Supreme Court today.  The libs and conservatives voted predictably with Anthony O’Connor Kennedy being the swing vote. Writing for the majority, Justice Kennedy expressed that DOMA: “…imposes a disability [...]

SCOTUS to Hear Arguments on Gay Marriage

March 26, 2013

Today the Supreme Court will hear the first of two cases dealing with gay marriage — the first being about California’s Proposition 8, the second about the constitutionality of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Prop 8 simply states: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is recognized in California.“  It passed with [...]

Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare; John Roberts Rejects Constitution

June 28, 2012

The Supreme Court further weakened the Constitution today when, by a vote of 5-4, they held that the personal mandate in Obamacare was constitutional.  Surprisingly, the “conservative” Justice who flipped to the liberals was not Anthony Kennedy, but rather Chief Justice John Roberts.  The tabula rasa is blank no longer. The issue before the court [...]

Busy Supreme Court News Day!

March 15, 2010

As it turns out, today was a busy news day regarding the ordinarily quiet SCOTUS.  Usually, without any major decisions coming down, we hardly hear anything from The Nine*.  Here are three recent stories: First, Butler University is cool with Chief Justice John Roberts attending his niece’s graduation this May, but think Roberts is simply [...]

Justice Roberts Stands Up for SCOTUS

March 11, 2010

Word came yesterday that Chief Justice John Roberts was upset about the treatment the Justices got from both Congress and the President at January’s State of the Union Address, questioning even whether or not SCOTUS should really even show up anymore.  Here’s my opinion about that address and the treatment of the court who are [...]

Sotomayor is Confirmed

August 7, 2009

With a 68-31 vote (Teddy “Fins” Kennedy was too ill to vote) the US Senate voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor the 111th Supreme Court Justice.  Nine RINOs, Lindsey Graham among them, added their votes to 59 Dems.   She’s also the third woman and (I’m not sure if anyone knows about this) she’s the first Latina on the court!  I [...]

Joe, You Gaffe-tastic Rube!

January 22, 2009

Here’s Joe Biden today at the swearing-in of the new White House staff, making a crack at Chief Justice Roberts’ gaffe at the Inauguration.  However, Big Barry O was NOT happy as Joe made his own gaffe!  Watch: Remember this one?  “STAND UP ,CHUCK!”  Umm… wheelchair-bound Chuck Graham might have a problem with that, Joe. If [...]

Obama’s Second Inaugural

January 21, 2009

Barack Obama took the oath of office again today after screwing up the oath at yesterday’s Inauguration. As the USA Today link demonstrates, liberals have been trying to pin the misstep entirely on Chief Justice Roberts while ignoring the fact that Obama also had a role in the blunder by interrupting the Chief in the [...]

Suing a Chief Justice

January 13, 2009

Well-known atheist activist Michael Newdow is suing Chief Justice John Roberts over the phrase “so help me God”, to be used at Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration.  The Chief Justice was served with the suit at his primary residence, and reacted gracefully.  One has to wonder about the legal implications of suing a sitting justice of [...]

Gitmo Detainees Get Their Day in Court

June 12, 2008

And the Constitution gets its day on the toilet paper roll!  The Supreme Court was about as off-base and dangerous today as as they were in Dred Scott.  POWs held at Gitmo will, for the first time in our history, be allowed to have access to civilian US courts during wartime. These are five Supreme Court Justices [...]
