Presidential Horse Race 2016: When does opposing Donald Trump become a moral issue?

Q for #NeverTrump: Are you really willing to effectively extinguish the lives of millions of unborn Americans because your pride prevents you from backing a man like Donald Trump?

Why the Supreme Court's ruling could be worse for pro-lifers than you think

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

It is possible a more liberal Supreme Court could take away Casey's underappreciated concessions to pro-lifers.

This Is How You Disarm America (But Only The Law-Abiding Part)

Caleb Howe, RedState

Obama has set the precedent for executive action on guns. The Ninth Circuit has ruled that your right isn't really a right at all. The gun manufacturers and the NRA are openly targeted for government retribution. The Supreme Court is going to have a new face. And the propaganda machine has never been more active. Add that up.

Sorry Friends, If You Are #NeverTrump Then You Are #4Hillary

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I still think Ted Cruz is the best candidate conservatives had in the race, but he is unfortunately not the candidate who won a majority of the delegates – that distinction goes to Donald Trump – and it is to Trump that right-of-center voters will have to look if our country and constitutional liberty are to survive. Don't buy that argument? Then look in the mirror and read this list...

The Corruption of the Supreme Court Democrats

It was clear from yesterday’s hearings that the Democratic appointees to the Supreme Court do not believe the Constitution limits the President’s executive power, as long as there’s a Democrat in the White House.

Will The Supreme Court Elect Donald Trump President Today?

Today the Supreme Court hears the challenge to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign on the issue if illegal immigration, and being the message carrier for America’s forgotten country class voters on that issue has sustained Trump through a series of blunders that would have destroyed any other candidate. Will the Supreme Court rein-in Obama, or will the people have to have the ultimate say at the ballot box?

Conservatives to pounce if GOP relents on Supreme Court

Burgess Everett, Politico

It's safe to say all of the conservative goodwill would end the instant Republicans agreed to take up Merrick Garland's nomination. And the fire would turn inward at the worst possible moment for Republicans, as the party is scrambling to save its narrow Senate majority in November.

Mark Hensch, The Hill

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump late Sunday said he has generated a list of candidates he would nominate to the Supreme Court if elected president. “I’m going to get a list of anywhere from five to ten judges, and those are going to be the judges that I’m going to put in,” he said during a speech at his Mar-a-Largo club in Palm Beach, Fla.
