Conservatives Should Stop Celebrating Gorsuch and Start Limiting the Supreme Court

Mark Meckler, With the Republicans showing some spine and elevating Judge Neil McGill Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, there is reason to celebrate.  Antonin Scalia’s seat has been filled by someone who may be able to do it justice, if you’ll allow the pun.  Really, only time will tell, since we’ve been burned before. Conservatives have a

Neil Gorsuch and the Senate’s convoluted Supreme Court confirmation dance

Erin Hawley, Monday, the American people will meet our probable next Supreme Court Justice, Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge, Neil Gorsuch.

As Democrats rally around this position, which I’m sure made their progressive base happy, outgoing Vice President Joe Biden told PBS’ Judy Woodruff last week that

Thomas Sowell: Where Are We?

Thomas Sowell,  We are now in a kind of political no-man’s-land between an administration on its way out and a new administration taking shape. Predictions are always risky — and nowhere more so than in times like these. What we can do, however, is assess where we are, and what some of the opportunities and

Black History Museum Discriminates Against Clarence Thomas

Crystal Wright,  Why does America’s second black Supreme Court justice not deserve an exhibit? America’s new black history museum apparently likes to discriminate against black conservatives.

Trump on Government Reform

Q: Your proposed tax cut would add $10 trillion to the nation’s debt. You insist that you could make up for a good deal of that by cutting waste, fraud, & abuse. TRUMP: Correct. Q: Like what?
