Ann Coulter has probably been Trump’s biggest fan since the very beginning, but even she didn’t realize how great his presidency was going to be. She gives Trump high marks for the first two weeks in office and sings his praises in a way that only Ann Coulter can do. Enjoy! (As report by: Breitbart …

Neil Gorsuch, like Justice Antonin Scalia is a constitutional originalist and textualist, which means he has studied and agrees with what the Founding Fathers meant when they crafted the U.S. Constitution and he doesn’t spend his days searching for magical meanings in the document that aren’t there to fit an ideological bent. Gorsuch, in many …

We all know what drama queens the Democratic Party embodies.  We also know that liberals prefer to legislate from the bench, especially when the American people reject their progressive policies.  So when President Donald Trump nominates the replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia tonight you would expect Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to be doing naked …

Can we first just thank God that Donald Trump is picking Justice Antonin Scalia’s replacement and not Hillary Clinton?  Reflect on that for a moment. Apparently Judge Neil Gorsuch is more than likely Trump’s choice.  I’d like to point out that Trump has kept his word and chose from the list of judges he previously told …

In September Trump made a long list of Justices that could replace Scalia. While Cruz didn’t make the list during that time, Lindsey Graham said he would not only support Trump’s list, but Ted Cruz as well. Graham went on to say, “Nobody can tell me Ted Cruz is not a constitutionally gifted, talented lawyer, because …

One Missouri county commission isn’t taking the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling well, voting to lower flags on two county buildings.

POTUS candidate Ted Cruz is more than just angry about the activist supreme court. He has a plan to do something about it. And how it unfolds, is pretty much up to you. Characterizing the actions of the supremes as clouding the nation in its darkest period in history is evidently the catalyst to propel …

Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them. But there is a deeper and more long-lasting impact of …

The whole idea behind lifetime appointments to the highest court in the land is to provide justices with insulation from political pressure. They are perfectly positioned to resist the executive, the legislature, the news media and elite opinion to the point where they are free to issue rulings upholding the rule of law. At least …

In yet another decision that thumbs it’s nose at the Supreme Court’s landmark D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago rulings, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals held today that the Second Amendment does not protect gun rights outside of one’s home. The case, Bonidy v. United States Postal Service, challenged 39 C.F.R. § 232.1(l), …

For a second time, Obamacare has been saved by a strained constitutional construction. This is reason enough for considerable concern. However, what will be the long-range effects on liberty? In his scathing dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia summarized the Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell in two sentences: “The court holds that when the Patient …

It’s not the same country anymore. With yesterday’s decision to uphold Obamacare subsidies, the Supreme Court starts the day, today, with another shocking ruling. In all 50 states, gay marriage is legal, according to at least 5 of the 9 justices. And so it stands. Justice Kennedy issued the ruling: Business Insider: Justice Anthony Kennedy …

In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court just ruled to maintain the current status quo and keep millions of people on the government dole, to receive Obamacare subsidies. The majority was led by none other than Justice, John Roberts. The Supreme Court upheld Obamacare’s insurance subsidies as legal in a 6-3 ruling Thursday morning. “Congress …
