Supreme Court

Justice Thomas Speaks

Matthew Continetti, Washington Free Beacon

Clarence Thomas needs to speak more. Not for his benefit. For America’s. This is the justice’s twenty-fifth year on the Supreme Court. He is famously reticent. Not only on the bench, where in February he shocked the media by asking a question during oral argument for first time in a decade, but also in public life.

FedUp PAC Launches Unprecedented Catholic Voter Outreach

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
This election is winnable.  It is close enough to be turned around overnight.  The key to shifting the Catholic vote in Trump’s favor is to reach individual Catholics, and Catholic women with specific information and facts the media has not reported.  And through FedUp PAC there is a way to do that.

Cruz: Precedent exists for keeping Supreme Court short-staffed

It’s Time To Fight And Win The Election We Have

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.

Hillary Clinton and the High Court

William Murchison, The American Spectator

Congressmen and presidents rail at the court. So what? Nothing changes, except membership on the court — the very reason many voters have identified the Supreme Court as the determinative factor in the choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. We know exactly the kind of jurists Clinton would nominate — whomever she wants to carry on the federal-power-expanding work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Justice for Chicken Little

Editors, Washington Examiner

The lesson of the non-issue of Merrick Garland is that, again, the it was not a disaster that a particular president didn't get his way on everything. This is a good lesson for those liberals who decided upon Obama's election that the presidency became the only important office in American government, and did much to undermine the others.
