Barrett’s authored opinions give no reason to believe she automatically accepts or rejects a government agency’s interpretation of the law.
The notion that Barrett must recuse herself or ‘categorically sit on the sidelines until the President who nominated [her] has left office’ is entirely antithetical to precedent.
Such a move would cement Trump’s biggest success: picking committed and youthful originalists—judges who will interpret the Constitution according to its original public meaning
Media and Democrats’ decision in 2018 to collude with the criminally minded has rendered today’s discussion of power plays meaningless.
History shows it is possible and even common for justices to be confirmed within 45 days of their formal nomination, including in the court’s modern era.
A vigil speaker declared that her organization and its allies would do whatever it takes to keep the Senate from holding hearings on a new Trump nominee, no matter who it is.
Sen. Josh Hawley’s pledge to vote only for nominees who have objected to Roe v. Wade would mean a vote against Clarence Thomas, and in favor of David Souter, Anthony Kennedy, and Sandra Day O’Connor.
The first electoral cycle is that of presidential impeachments; the second is that of Supreme Court nominations. Soon the two cycles may intersect.
It would be both smart politics and good governance to update the list of SCOTUS contenders. When a vacancy emerges, whether before or after the election, who will be considered?
Nearly 40 percent of all votes in American history to filibuster judicial nominees have occurred since President Trump took office.
Patrick Bumatay would be a highly qualified jurist and a strong conservative voice on the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals. We would be lucky to have him.
Liberals are increasingly comfortable arguing against the ‘undemocratic’ Constitution, seeing the system as the opposition.
Republicans are on the verge of moving the Supreme Court rightward in a way seemingly unthinkable since President Reagan’s nomination of Robert Bork.
As has been typical for the last several decades, this Supreme Court hearing was even more rancorous than the last. Here’s what we learned from the first day’s events.
Sen. Jeff Flake has been in Africa for nearly a month and he’s been telling different people different things about when exactly he’s planning to return.
Libertarians aren’t going to agree with Kavanaugh on everything—we don’t agree on everything ourselves!—but he’s a big step forward for constitutional liberty.
The American Left equates sincere religious faith with bigotry. That’s why Kavanaugh will almost certainly face a religious test from Senate Democrats.
Now that Justice Anthony Kennedy has retired, President Trump owes it to us to continue keeping his promise to appoint justices in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia, a promise that likely got Trump elected.
As a result of their shared philosophies, Ray Kethledge and Neil Gorsuch are staunch defenders of religious liberty, the Second Amendment, and the separation of powers.
If judges are a vindication of Trump, are they also a vindication of Mitch McConnell? And if so, does a good Supreme Court really compensate for a lousy Congress?
