Citizens United

Why Justice Gorsuch will have an immediate (and big) impact on the Supreme Court

Hans A. von Spakovsky, Relentless, harsh and wholly unmerited—such were the attacks against Judge Neil Gorsuch. Yet Senate Majority Leader  Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) held firm to his promise to hold a full-Senate vote on the judge’s nomination and today we have, once again, a full complement of justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. Hopefully, Gorsuch’s

Liberals get hysterical over the ‘alt-right’ but we are living in their ‘alt-left’ world

Dan Gainor, The traditional media are obsessed with tying conservatives to the “alt-right.” There have been more than 50 major news network mentions this year alone as journalists try to do what they always do — paint conservatives as racist, sexist, and a few other words that end in ist. All in the name of

America We Must Stop Hillary

Kurt Schlichter,  I was not happy to vote for Donald Trump, but Hillary Clinton must be stopped. She and her coterie of soft-handed, Chardonnay-sipping fascists are, in equal parts, malignant and stupid, and many of us believe her hate-fueled pogrom against normal Americans will stand a significant chance of leading to real civil conflict. I’ve

Benghazi Disappears from Hillary’s State Dept. Calendar

Brendan Kirby, Mislabeled dates in Clinton’s schedule around the Sept. 11, 2012, attack raise questions. Copies of Hillary Clinton’s schedule as secretary of state from Sept. 1 to Sept. 9 in 2012 were labeled with the wrong year in State Department records. Those just happen to be the days leading up to the terrorist attacks that

Undermining Our System

Mona Charen, Because of what came later — Donald Trump’s refusal to say whether he’d accept the results of the election — Hillary Clinton’s similar, if somewhat less incendiary, remark about our system’s legitimacy went nearly unnoticed. Right out of the box, responding to a query from Chris Wallace about the Supreme Court (and let

The Candidates’ High Court Priority — and the Constitution’s

Jeff Jacoby,  RIGHT OFF THE bat, moderator Chris Wallace asked Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: “What’s your view on how the Constitution should be interpreted?” Right off the bat, Clinton and Trump gave the wrong answers. Clinton announced that the Supreme Court needs to “stand on the side of the American people,” and then rattled

Wikileaks ‘Prove Coordination Between Clinton Campaign and Super PACs’

Lee Fang and Andrew Perez of The Intercept collect examples of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign “closely coordinating with friendly Super PACs” in apparent violation of election law. The fact that political candidates are closely coordinating with friendly Super PACs — making a mockery of a central tenet of the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision

Hillary Clinton apparently has Read the Constitution and Does not Like It

Bruce Bialosky, “And we will defend all our rights, civil rights, human rights and voting rights, women’s rights and worker’s rights, LGBT rights and the rights of people with disabilities.” That is from Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Convention speech. There are two rights that she would not defend which are defined by the first two amendments

Clinton Aides Abedin, Band Joked About Islamic Terror

Brendan Kirby, Clinton confidante laughs at ‘Funnneeee’ religious violence crack in newly released emails. Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band, on a trip to Israel in 2009, joked with Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin about religious-ethnic violence in the Jewish State, according to emails obtained by the conservative advocacy group Citizens United. Band was in Israel with his

Trump is relentlessly arguing that Clinton is unfit for office

Think of it as the moment when Donald Trump truly learned to throw a (campaign) punch. It came about three weeks ago, amid the latest swirl of stories on the  Clintons’ ethics.  Hillary Clinton had recently blamed her private email server on  Colin Powell. Judicial Watch had released more emails that showed the Clinton Foundation begging

Emails suggest Clinton aide stage-managed Benghazi hearing questions

Newly released emails suggest a senior Hillary Clinton aide stage-managed her first hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack by feeding specific topics Clinton wanted to address to Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, who at the time was acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. “We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two

Trump hires Citizens United chief David Bossie as deputy campaign manager

Donald Trump’s team has hired veteran conservative organizer, David Bossie, to help build the campaign’s voter-turnout operation. “A friend of mine for many years. Solid. Smart. Loves politics, knows how to win,” Trump told The Washington Post. According to The Post, Bossie participated Thursday in strategy sessions at Trump Tower where he was introduced to
