The nomination of Judge Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court is likely to set off the ugliest political fight we’ve seen since, well, the last Supreme Court confirmation battle.
‘There is a long history of anti-Catholic hatred by some in this country, and a growing tide of anti-religious animus on the Left now, and I hope you and your colleagues will not play any further part in it,’ Sen. Josh Hawley wrote.
Trump urged Democrat lawmakers and the media to provide a ‘respectful and dignified hearing that she deserves and, frankly, that our country deserves.’
President Donald Trump today nominated federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the seat Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacated on the Supreme Court.
President Trump should nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett because she’s the best person for the job. Full stop.
Trump vowed to choose a nominee from the 2016 list, so he should nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
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.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden reversed course on a summer pledge to release a list identifying his potential SCOTUS nominees.
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.
‘Twenty-nine times there has been a vacancy in a presidential election year. Presidents have made nominations all 29 times,’ Cruz stated. ‘That’s what presidents do. If there’s a vacancy, they make a nomination.’
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.
Barr recounted numerous significant instances in which a coalition of primarily unelected bureaucrats have obstructed Trump’s use of presidential powers to an extent they never have for any other president.
The first electoral cycle is that of presidential impeachments; the second is that of Supreme Court nominations. Soon the two cycles may intersect.
While Justice Brett Kavanaugh made it through the confirmation process, my dad didn’t. His nomination was defeated because of completely unsupported abuse allegations.
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?
The left is fighting Neomi Rao’s nomination to U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit by dredging up op-eds she wrote as a college student.
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.
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.
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.
