109 Conservative Leaders Demand Prompt Kavanaugh Supreme Court Confirmation

In a statement released through the Conservative Action Project 109 leaders of the conservative movement demanded that the Senate promptly confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh so the Supreme Court will have a full complement of nine sitting justices when the next term of the Court begins on October 1, 2018.

Democrats’ Anti-Catholic Bigotry On Kavanaugh Will Cost Them In November

In the near term, months of televised Anti-Catholic bias from Democrats as they try to block the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh could solidify the Catholic voting trend demonstrated in the 2016 election, giving Republicans a huge advantage in the 2018 midterm and 2020 presidential elections.

Trump Appoints Kavanaugh Liberals Go Nuts

While liberals are going nuts making Judge Brett Kavanaugh out to be a rightwing ideologue, his record tells a different story of a judge committed to applying the law and the Constitution as written. That may be a radical idea to liberals and Democrats, but it is the view that held sway in our judiciary for almost 150 years.

Trump Narrows SCOTUS Choices To Three

The nomination of the next Supreme Court Justice may be the most important decision of the Trump presidency and will define President Trump’s legacy for generations to come.

The Founders Foresaw Obama, But Not Boehner And McConnell

The danger of the abdication of responsibility by Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and their feckless decision to put enforcement of the Constitution solely in the hands of the Supreme Court, is potentially just as tyrannical as leaving unchecked power in the hands of Obama.

BHO Doesn't Understand Constitution

Mike Needham, The Federalist

O lectures Congress that “you don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job.” This misunderstands our government on every level. Congress’s job is to fund gov't operations. It’s a mistake to view the appropriations process as a rubber stamp on gov't. Rather, it is a vital part of our nation’s separation of powers.

Dems: Constitutionally Illiterate

Betsy McCaughey, American Spectator

Displaying their ignorance of the Constitution, Dems are excoriating Repub Reps for attaching a condition — no Obamacare — to a stopgap bill to fund the government. It's not extortion; it's chceks and balances in action.
