Supreme Court Retirement Reports are Swirling

Sen. Mitch McConnell has pushed that Trump should be able to appoint another Supreme Court justice, should a retirement emerge this year.

Many wonder if Ruth Bader Ginsberg would soon step down. If she does, that would give Donald Trump another chance to create a conservative majority.

But rumors are swirling that two Republican-appointed justices are eyeing retirement. Some D.C. insiders are making this claim:

The “stronger rumor” is that Alito is “going to quit,” conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt told Washington Post reporter Robert Costa on his show Wednesday. Read more…

Supreme Court Gives Trump Power to Fire Obama-Created CFPB Chief

The Supreme Court has been ruling on major cases throughout the Summer of 2020.

Some of which have upset Trump supporters, as the court sided with the liberal opinion.

But they recently decided that the president has the power to fire, for any reason, the head of a controversial organization created by Obama and spearheaded by Elizabeth Warren:

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the federal law which created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) during the Obama administration unconstitutionally limited the reasons for which the president could fire its director — but in doing so allowed the agency to continue operating, saying that the part of the law requiring certain reasons for the director’s removal is “severable” from the rest.

Trump Takes Obamacare to Supreme Court

The Donald Trump administration has been against the Affordable Care Act (ACA) from the beginning.

One of the President’s campaign promises involved delivering a better healthcare option for Americans. Specifically, one that’s less restrictive and more sustainable.

And though they’ve taken strides to end “ObamaCare,” the controversial program remains mostly intact.

That may not remain true for much longer, though.

The Trump administration just took the ACA to the highest court in the land, and the goal is simple: overturn ObamaCare. Read more…

Supreme Court Rules 7-2 Giving Trump the Green Light to Fast Track Deportation

Over the summer, the Supreme Court has been ruling on many long-awaited cases. To the shock of many conservatives, the court has handed several victories to left-wing causes.

This week, they ruled on a major immigration case. The court voted in a 7-2 decision.

And it’s a big win for the Trump administration:

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday for the Trump administration in a key immigration case…

The ruling means the administration can deport some people seeking asylum without allowing them to make their case to a federal judge. Read more…

Federal Court Ordered the Michael Flynn Case to be Dismissed

It appears the Flynn legal saga might finally be over. The Justice Department dropped its charges against the former Trump official months ago.

But an Obama-appointed judge delayed closing the case, in a rare move to find “friends of the court” to argue against it.

Flynn’s lawyers appealed to end the trial. And now a D.C. court of appeals is ordering Judge Sullivan to drop the case:

A federal appeals court ordered a lower-court judge Wednesday to dismiss the criminal case against Michael Flynn, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s first national security advisor before being investigated and prosecuted for lying to FBI agents. Read more…

Trumps Sends a Clear Warning to Those Vandalizing Monuments

For weeks, Americans have watched rioters and so-called peaceful protesters tear up statues and monuments. At first, they called for the destruction of Confederate statues. But very quickly, as many people warned, it seems some of these groups have been willing to deface or tearing down many other memorial, statue, and historical monuments in their sight.

Vandals have even defaced the Lincoln Memorial and the WWII memorial in D.C. Last night, they attacked St. John’s Church for a second time and attempted to pull down a statue of Andrew Jackson. Read more…

Judge Jeanine Unloads On Supreme Court For Becoming a Partisan “Political Force”

Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Democrats when they knocked down Donald Trump’s 2017 rescinding of DACA. The court decided Trump did not provide “adequate” reasoning for ending this policy, which was never upheld by legislation.

Fox News’ Judge Jeanine had a few thoughts on the subject, to say the least.

I love her passion for justice and America! She pointed out that Obama’s policy was not legal nor was it supported by a piece of legislation by Congress. She goes on to call out the Supreme Court, for becoming a “political force” just before a major election. Read more…

Trump Fights Back After Supreme Court Fails to Strike Down Obama’s DACA

The media was abuzz yesterday after a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling on DACA.

While the left claimed the court “upheld” DACA, they actually ruled that the Trump administration failed to provide adequate justification for terminating the policy in 2017. One could definitely make the case the Supreme Court is agreeing with Obama’s executive action instead of going through Congressional approval.

President Trump clarified the meaning of the ruling, saying the court “punted” the issue further down the road. And he promised his administration would continue their fight. Read more…

Federal Court Might Force Hillary to Testify About Her Emails

Did you think Hillary Clinton got off scot-free? Not quite. A D.C. federal appeals court is weighing an ongoing case over her email server.

A watchdog group is fighting to uncover what really happened in 2016. They want to question Clinton herself, something she has fiercely rejected for years.

But the court is getting close to deciding if she can keep ignoring justice for much longer.

From Politico:

The official topic of Tuesday’s arguments before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals was Hillary Clinton’s bid to avoid giving an in-person deposition. Read more…
