Supreme Court Does More Violence To Voting Rights In Texas

The Supreme Court ruled this weekend that a Texas voter I.D. law which has been ruled “deliberately discriminatory” can be used to restrict voting rights in this year’s midterm elections, which is just the latest of the Roberts Court’s injuries to voting rights. That court famously gutted the 1965 Voting Rights Act a little over [...]

Law and order conservative Mike Huckabee doesn’t like how the Supreme Court is ruling, so he is urging governors to ignore its rulings. In an interview with Iowa-based conservative talk show host Steve Deace on Monday, former Arkansas Gov.

Justice Anthony Kennedy has blocked the ruling that allows gay marriages in Idaho.

In [...]

It’s surprising Anthony Scalia would say such a thing given his reputation as a constitutionalist.

Justice Scalia, part of the court’s conservative wing, was preaching to the choir when he told the audience at [...]

The Court voted to stop early voting this week. The Supreme Court voted 5-4 along ideological lines to put on hold a ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Peter Economus earlier in September that required the Ohio secretary of state to restore early voting hours cut by a new state law this year. The stay [...]

Ruth Bader Ginsburg told Vanity Fair that if she were to resign, President Obama would not be able to get someone she’d like to see on the court through Congress. She also doesn’t see the current court as conservative. Asked to react to the term “activist judge,” Ginsburg said she doesn’t think much of it [...]

Richard George Kopf, a George H. W. Bush appointee who sits on a Federal bench in Nebraska, wants the Supreme Court to STFU. …he’s been running a personal blog called Hercules and the Umpire for about a year. In one recent post, he told the Supreme Court to shut the fuck up. The closing of [...]

We’ve heard the right wing spin machine call President Obama a King who has brazenly attempted to usurp power. A Christian Publication said our president is deceitful and added this: (President Obama) …behaves like a king, a dictator – someone who believes that his own pronouncements have the force of law, and who thinks he can [...]
