Sen. Collins on Kavanaugh--the best speech since ML King's "I have a dream" speech

Sen. Susan Collins, explaining why she will vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, gave the best speech heard in America since Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech in 1963 during the March on Washington. The following video calls her speech “explosive.” Maybe. But it... Read more »

Kavanaugh haters engage in a logical fallacy

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s opponents  have so routinely dragged out a logical fallacy against his nomination to the Supreme Court that you have to wonder if logic is still being taught in school. The fallacy argues that because his accuser, Christine Ford, is a woman she must be believed that Kavanaugh attacked her. Even though the evidence... Read more »

Questions about Christine Blasey Ford's second "front door"

Here’s more evidence that Christine Blasey Ford is making it up when she talks about being afraid that Brett Kavanaugh could have killed her and that he tried to rape her. Christine Blasey Ford passionately described her need for a “second front door” to her home because she was so traumatized by the alleged attack... Read more »

Leland Keyser for third time doesn't back Blasey Ford's accusations against Kavanaugh

Not that it matters to the haters of Judge Britt Kananaugh. But as the Washington Times reported: Leland Keyser, the high school friend Christine Blasey Ford counted on to corroborate her sexual assault charges, has told the FBI she has no knowledge of the supposed 1982 party or the accused, Brett Kavanaugh. Howard J. Walsh... Read more »

Vetting Kavanaugh's accuser Ford and her attorney

The accusation by Christine Blasey Ford that against Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school is so flimsy that it is fair to look into her motivations. Here is a look at what is described as possibly her “hidden agenda:” Isn’t possible retaliation on Ford’s part at least worthy of serious consideration? Shouldn’t they... Read more »

GOP, sic the FBI on Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford

Republicans, pathetically and habitually deaf to common sense suggestions, are refusing to ask the FBI to investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her three decades ago in high school. Why? Republican explanations that Senate Judicial Committee can do a competent job and the FBI isn’t necessary are flimsy and... Read more »

Don't count out Illinois public employee unions just yet

Widespread speculation predicts that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in  Janus v. AFSCME will change America’s political landscape, especially in Illinois, the bluest of blue states where public employee unions have driven the state into near bankruptcy. By giving employees in such unions as the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, Council 31 in... Read more »

Why SCOTUS must protect Jack Phillip's right to not bake a wedding cake for a gay couple

Tuesday’s U.S. Supreme Court hearing in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission helped to delineate the complex issues in one of the most important religious civil rights case in years. The case will determine whether a Colorado baker, Jack Phillips, can refuse, based on his constitutional right to be free of government interference in the practice... Read more »

Senate Democrats aim their gun at Neil Gorsuch; it goes pfffft

Democrats appeared pitiful this morning with their futile attempt to nail Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. They repeatedly asked him for his “opinion” about hot button issues so they could identify him as being on the wrong side, as defined by progressives, of cultural, political and other issues. Or as some kind of handmaiden of President... Read more »

Scott Turow's useful suggestion for replacing Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

It’s the brightest and most insightful essay I’ve read so far about how to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Scott Turow, a lawyer, former federal prosecutor, and author of popular novels, suggested that everyone take a deep breath in the heated debate. Appoint someone, he said, who would restrict, not expand the... Read more »
