Constitutional amendment to prevent Supreme Court packing resurfaces

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) introduced legislation on Jan. 22 to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit the Supreme Court to nine justices, the numerical cap that has been in place for well over a century, in order to prevent Democrats from enlarging the court’s membership. Amending the Constitution is no easy task. The amendment bill must pass by a two-thirds supermajority in both houses of Congress and then be ratified by three-quarters of the states, or 38 of the 50 states, to become part of the Constitution. The move comes after then-President Donald Trump’s conservative constitutionalist nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, was … Continue reading Constitutional amendment to prevent Supreme Court packing resurfaces

Anti-Trump reprisals: allies and supporters of the 45th president won’t be safe

As Joe Biden, an illegitimate president, was sworn in at a funereal inauguration ceremony surrounded by thousands of U.S. troops, Democrats were busy plotting and scheming and planning reprisals against Republicans for doing nothing other than supporting his duly elected predecessor. These anti-democratic Democrats have been driven to utter madness by the events of January 6 even though what happened that day does not compare with the months of Antifa and Black Lives Matter murdering people and burning down cities to protest the Fentanyl-caused death in police custody of George Floyd, a drug-addicted career criminal who resisted arrest. Even the … Continue reading Anti-Trump reprisals: allies and supporters of the 45th president won’t be safe

FCC asks Supreme Court to roll back media ownership restrictions

The Federal Communications Commission urged the Supreme Court to relax rules limiting ownership of local media outlets, arguing that the restrictions are obsolete and unneeded.

Prometheus Radio Project, which were consolidated and heard together, lasted 81 minutes, exceeding the scheduled 60 minutes.

Democrats are expected to have … Continue reading FCC asks Supreme Court to roll back media ownership restrictions

Baltimore’s lawsuit against energy companies belongs in federal court, Supreme Court hears

Media reports indicate Biden will have the United States rejoin the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, in which nearly 200 countries pledged to reduce emissions claimed to contribute to global warming.

Left-wing organizer charged in U.S. Capitol riot: Is John Earle Sullivan just one of many radical mob-inciters?

The charging of a young man associated with Antifa and Black Lives Matter with cheerleading the mob violence at the United States Capitol that disrupted and delayed the recent congressional certification of the presidential election, raises disturbing questions about radical leftist involvement in the unrest. Does this mean that the civil disturbance on Capitol Hill January 6, executed by people carrying pro-Trump paraphernalia, was some kind of a so-called false flag operation? More investigation is needed but it wouldn’t be the first time Democrats have stirred up crowds in an effort to provoke violence for political purposes. Thanks to the … Continue reading Left-wing organizer charged in U.S. Capitol riot: Is John Earle Sullivan just one of many radical mob-inciters?

Supreme Court rules on seized property in bankruptcy

The Supreme Court has ruled that debtors aren’t entitled to have impounded property immediately returned to them as soon as they declare bankruptcy. The 8–0 opinion in the case known as City of Chicago v. Fulton was written by Justice Samuel Alito. Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who wasn’t yet a member of the high court when the case was argued on Oct. 13, 2020, didn’t participate in the case. Justice Sonia Sotomayor filed a separate, concurring opinion. When a debtor files a petition for bankruptcy, the U.S. Bankruptcy Code protects the debtor’s interests by imposing an automatic stay “applicable to all entities” on efforts to collect pre-petition … Continue reading Supreme Court rules on seized property in bankruptcy

FTC asks Supreme Court to let it take funds from payday lender

The Federal Trade Commission should be able, under current law, to order a payday lender to hand over its so-called ill-gotten gains after its leader was convicted of usury, fraud, and racketeering, the Supreme Court heard Jan. 13. The court heard 67 minutes of oral argument in the case known as AMG Capital Management Inc. v. Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The case goes back to when race car driver Scott Tucker was sentenced in January 2018 to 200 months in prison for operating a nationwide internet payday lending enterprise that, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) summary, “systematically evaded state laws for … Continue reading FTC asks Supreme Court to let it take funds from payday lender

Supreme Court rejects Gohmert lawsuit over counting electoral votes

The Supreme Court summarily rejected an emergency application by a Republican congressman that, had it been granted in time, may have allowed Vice President Mike Pence to reject Electoral College votes from states disputed by Republicans, possibly giving President Donald Trump a second term.
