The Legacy of Corrupt Eric Holder: 16 scandals (of many more): One – Discriminatory Hiring Practices On August 8, 2011 documents were released by the DOJ, subsequent to a court battle, which revealedthe DOJ’s Civil Rights Division had been engaging in politicized hiring in the career civil service ranks. According to PJ Media, the politicized hiring practices of Holder’s DOJ are nearly unprecedented in scope. In June 2008, Holder admitted to the American Constitution Society (an organization started as a liberal counterweight to the Federalist Society) that the Justice Department was “going to be looking for people who share our values.” The DOJ’s hiring records speak for themselves as this in depth study by PJ Media demonstrates. Two – Fort Hood Following the Fort Hood attack on November 5, 2009 not one of the post-attack reports issued by the DOJ mentioned Nidal Hasan’s Islamist ideology. And, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) refused to call the attack an act of terrorism on its ...

Thad Cochran's record on tort reform? This is a long post, but if you want to know the true, please keep reading. The Cochran campaign has started a nasty TV ad insinuating that I somehow am a trial lawyer against tort reform. Nothing could be further than the truth. During the past 14 years, the great majority of my law practice has centered around defending companies from civil lawsuits. I am a member of the Republican National Lawyer's Association, the Federalist Society, the Mississippi Defense Lawyer's Association and the Mississippi Claims Association. I have been named a BIPEC business champion many times and have introduced numerous pro-business bills and have fought for economic growth with every vote. Unlike Thad Cochran, I have voted consistently voted for tort reform as a state senator: I authored the Vexatious Litigant Law, allowing a court to declare a person who engages in repeated frivolous law suits as a vexatious litigant (SB 2440, 01/20/14).

Over the last thirty years, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies has grown from a small group of disaffected conservative law students into an organization with extraordinary influence over American law and politics. Although the organization is unknown to the average citizen, this group of intellectuals has managed to monopolize the selection of federal judges, take over the Department of Justice, and control legal policy in the White House. Today the Society claims that 45,000 conservative lawyers and law students are involved in its activities. Four Supreme Court Justices--Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, and Samuel Alito--are current or former members. Every single federal judge appointed in the two Bush presidencies was either a Society member or approved by members. During the Bush years, young Federalist Society lawyers dominated the legal staffs of the Justice Department and other important government agencies. The Society has lawyer chapters in every major city i ...

Ok... I've been watching a thread Scott Webster Wood has been on for days arguing about a Romney Presidency. this quick(?) synopses of Presidential missteps throughout history Made me smile. where but FB are you going to be able to read such things. I loved it Scott... Scott Webster Wood And it doesn't matter what party they are. The problem isn't the party. The problem is the ideology. Lincoln was a progressive. And he neutered the 9th and 10th amendments and nearly ended this country for good because he was also a staunch federalist and a radical. The 'slavery' issue didn't cause the war, states rights issues did. Slavery was raised by Lincoln due to his abolitionist leanings as a means to sell the war and to discourage Europe from backing the states that succeeded when he tried to centralize control of more than the southern states would tolerate. Teddy Roosevelt was the first outspoken progressive president - also a republican. Among other things he did, he oversaw the creation of 'antitrust' which pl ...

If Quebec had won the 1995 referendum, today it might find itself as a small, heavily indebted and deeply corrupt society surrounded by bigger and more prosperous neighbours.
"The house of representatives ... can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as the great mass of society. This has always been deemed one of the strongest bonds by which human policy can connect the rulers and the people together. It creates between them that communion of interest, and sympathy of sentiments, of which few governments have furnished examples; but without which every government degenerates into tyranny." -- James Madison, Federalist No. 57, 1788

The Federalist Coalition was founded to promote a new narrative capable of replacing the conservative/liberal narrative that divides us and turns our efforts against one another. We seek to articulate a narrative that unites the people and directs our efforts against the power brokers within our society (both left and right) who have acted in concert with one another, unopposed by a distracted and divided people, to erode our liberty systematically.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A senior U.S. official said a principal motive for U.S. opposition to the newly created International Criminal Court was fear that the court might prosecute the president or other civilian or military leaders. "Our concern goes beyond the possibility that the prosecutor will target for indictment the isolated U.S. soldier. . . . Our principal concern is for our country's top civilian and military leaders, those responsible for our defense and foreign policy," Under Secretary of State John Bolton said in a speech released on Friday. "A fair reading of the treaty (setting up the court) leaves one unable to answer with confidence whether the United States would now be accused of war crimes for legitimate but controversial uses of force to protect world peace," Bolton told the Federalist Society in Washington on Thursday. "No U.S. presidents or their advisors could be assured that they would be unequivocally safe from politicized charges of criminal liability," he added. That fear, whic ...
BEAUMONT--Texas executed Elroy Chester, an African-American man, of Port Arthur, Jefferson County, on Wednesday dispite lingering questions about his eligibility for the death penality caused by his low intelect and other mental issues. To add more uncertainty to the propriety of this state-sponsored homicide, the US Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered a rare public judicial musconduct complaint against US Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Edith Jones to proceed. It is only a handfull of times in US history that a federal circuit judge has been subject of a public misconduct complaint and formal disciplinary review. The pending misconduct complaint alleges that Judge Jones, a former chief judge who is based in Houston, improperly discussed pending cases and allegedly made derogatory remarks about African-American, Mexican nationals and the mentally disabled in a public speach at the Federalist Society at the University of Pennsylvania in February. The complaint includes allegations that Jones improperly refer ...
Remember the little boy in Hook? "Charles Korsmo earned a degree in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2000. In 2002, he began working for the United States Federal Government on missile defense. He has also worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and for the Republican Party in the House of Representatives. He received a Juris Doctor degree from Yale Law School in 2006. At Yale, he was a member of the Federalist Society, an organization for politically conservative law students. In January 2006, he and other Yale Law students signed an open letter to Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter supporting the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. In July 2007, Korsmo passed the New York State Bar exam. Formerly an associate in the New York office of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and a visiting professor at Brooklyn Law School, Korsmo is currently a professor at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. In May 2011, it was announced that Korsmo had been ...

Thank you so much, Texas, for giving us Ted Cruz. I know him. Well, not personally. I know the résumé. Big-time college debater. Successful law student. Federalist Society. Rehnquist clerk. Lawyer for conservative causes. All fine. But here's the thing. Nothing in the résumé gives me any confidence he has the wisdom to serve the country in the Senate. The résumé tells me he's ambitious and clever. He wants to win. Badly. He collects evidence cards and uses them as bullets -- pow, pow, pow -- to bury his adversaries and to score points. And if the news reports are accurate, he is quite prepared to smear his adversaries without evidence. Case in point: the confirmation hearing for Defense nominee Chuck Hagel. From NYT: "Saying that he had serious doubts about the source of payments that Mr. Hagel had accepted for speaking engagements, Mr. Cruz declared, 'It is at a minimum relevant to know if that $200,000 that he deposited in his bank account came directly from Saudi Arabia, came directly from North ...

Why is Saturday mail under threat? The Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006 was passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Republican President. It mandated pre-funding retiree pension/healthcare needs for the next 75 years, and then only giving the USPS 10 years to do so. In addition, the Board of Governors of the USPS is comprised heavily of Bush appointees, some with ties to the Carlyle Group and the Federalist Society, both of which support the privatization of the USPS. In the Postal Services savings account, they've saved over $40 billion dollars in the last 7 years, with approximately $15 billion more to be saved by the 2016 deadline. This supposed financial crisis would be eliminated if Congress simply extended the deadline so payments per year could be reduced, thus eliminating the red ink on the balance sheet. Let me be clear, it appears to me that the people who want to privatize the US Postal Service have 3 years left to convince us that the Service is insolvent and can only ...

Justice Alito, Citizens United and the press Last week, Justice Samuel Alito speciously defended the Supreme Court's disastrous ruling in the 2010 Citizens United case by arguing that the ruling, which allowed unlimited independent campaign spending by corporations and unions, was not really groundbreaking at all. In fact, he said, all it did was reaffirm that corporations have free speech rights and that, without such rights, newspapers would have lost the major press freedom rulings that allowed the publication of the Pentagon Papers and made it easier for newspapers to defend themselves against libel suits in New York Times v. Sullivan. "The question is whether speech that goes to the very heart of government should be limited to certain preferred corporations; namely, media corporations," he said in a speech to the Federalist Society, a conservative group. "Surely the idea that the First Amendment protects only certain privileged voices should be disturbing to anybody who believes in free speech." B . ...

SEND THIS CRUZ ON A LONG CRUISE Senator-elect Cruz Paints Sharp Contrast Between Parties at Federalist Society Post-election, leaders of both parties in Congress have been talking about partisan healing. But it appears Ted Cruz, the Republican Senator-elect from Texas, didn't get the message. At the Federalist Society's annual convention, Cruz painted the differences between Democrats and Republicans in stark contrast during a November 16 speech. "Our ideas work," he said. "Their ideas don't work." Cruz, a partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius who takes office early next year, recalled his first experience with the Federalist Society 20 years ago as a first-year law school student. He also talked about how he survived one of the costliest primary battles this election. In the $50 million, three-way primary and subsequent run-off against former Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, Cruz said his campaign was outspent three to one. "In any other race, I should have been road kill – an armadillo on the si ...
