The same thing that so troubled Sen. Patrick Leahy in 2010 happened 25 times in the first eight months of 2019. Leahy not only failed to object, he actually led the effort.
Ginsburg’s advice against such schemes was sound, but her liberal fans will stop at nothing should they get the chance to change the Supreme Court.
The Constitution demands we solve it at the ballot box, or in our state and federal legislatures. We should stop expecting the Supreme Court to step up.
The judiciary’s rulings are not the supreme law of the land, even rulings from the Supreme Court. The judiciary is not the only or even final arbiter on the Constitution.
Religious tests are unacceptable––we should never let people of faith be automatically disqualified from public service due to their closely held beliefs.
Both Neomi Rao and Patrick Bumatay have immense potential as conservative jurists. Democrats see that and are getting scared.
Neomi Rao’s writing goes against every narrative the left holds dear––she’s a self-made minority who believes in national unity and personal responsibility.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ attempt to defend the independence of the judiciary, in light of President Trump’s comments that courts are politicized, did more harm than good.
The U.S. judicial system has a process for dealing with allegations of a crime, and Christine Blasey Ford should have to follow it, like any other accuser.

When a president or legislature is faced with following either a court ruling they know has no constitutional basis or the actual Constitution, they should heed Hamilton’s advice.
We have divergent interpretive theories that map onto ideologically sorted parties, so is it any surprise that elections are high-stakes for judges?
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is right: Courts matter. They matter because liberal judges long ago stopped interpreting the law and started inventing it.
Every four-year term, a president appoints around a fifth of the judiciary. They continue shaping our world long after the president who appointed them has left the White House.
If our system of government devolves into a political tug-of-war between the executive branch and the judiciary, we all lose.
This seems to be all just one more episode of Trumpian signaling or, as the court narrated, using a ‘bully pulpit to highlight a changed approach to immigration enforcement’ in the future.
How increasingly letting states and citizens sue to stop laws and regulations they don’t like, such as President Trump’s immigration order, can politicize courts and end self-government.
