“This month marks the start of Justice Alito’s 10 year on the Supreme Court. He took his seat on Jan. 31, 2006, chosen by President George W. Bush to succeed Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and confirmed by a vote of 58 to 42 after a feeble Democratic filibuster effort collapsed. The Alito-for-O’Connor substitution was the most consequential change on the court since the first President Bush picked Clarence Thomas to replace Justice Thurgood Marshall in 1991. None of the six subsequent departures (in addition to Justice O’Connor, they were Justices Byron R. White and Harry A. Blackmun, Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, and Justices Souter and John Paul Stevens) produced anything like the ideological lurch caused by the replacement of a moderately conservative compromise seeker with a lifelong movement conservative. In 1985, a 35-year-old Samuel Alito applied for a job in the Reagan Justice Department with an essay asserting that as a teenager in the 1960s, “the greatest influences on my views we ...
TODAY’S NOTABLE TEXAN OF THE DAY SANDRA DAY O’CONNOR JANUARY 9th 2015 Sandra Day O'Connor was born March 26, 1930 in El Paso Texas. She is a retired Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, serving from her appointment in 1981 by Ronald Reagan until her retirement in 2006. She was the first woman to be appointed to the Court. Prior to O'Connor's appointment to the Court, she was an elected official and judge in Arizona serving as the first female Majority Leader in the United States as the Republican leader in the Arizona Senate. On July 1, 2005, she announced her intention to retire effective upon the confirmation of a successor. Samuel Alito was nominated to take her seat in October 2005, and joined the Court on January 31, 2006. Considered a federalist and a moderate conservative, O'Connor tended to approach each case narrowly without arguing for sweeping precedents. She most frequently sided with the court's conservative bloc, although in the latter years of her tenure, she was re ...

Questions to consider and insights into the motivations of the SCOTUS majority, from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. "This is a fact. Six justices — Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, John Roberts, and Sonia Sotomayor — identify as Roman Catholic. There is excellent cause to question the impartiality of any truly devout Catholic justice on an issue such as access to birth control. These beliefs are required by Catholic law. Catholic Canon law explicitly and rather appallingly requires that “a religious submission of the intellect and will must be given to a doctrine which the Supreme Pontiff or the college of bishops declares concerning faith or morals.” (Canon 752). Supreme Pontiffs have made several declarations unequivocally condemning birth control and contraception. Ergo, Catholics must submit to this doctrine, even if it means an AIDS epidemic kills millions of Africans. So, if the Catholic Church requires a “religious submission of the intellect and wil ...

Which of the Supreme Court Justices voted in favor of Hobby Lobby? (This is why voting in national elections is important.) The 5-4 vote was divided as follows: FOR Hobby Lobby: Samuel Alito (appointed by George W. Bush), Clarence Thomas (appointed by George H.W. Bush), John Roberts (appointed by George W. Bush), Antonin Scalia (appointed by Ronald Reagan), and Anthony Kennedy (appointed by Ronald Reagan). AGAINST Hobby Lobby: Ruth Bader Ginsburg (appointed by Bill Clinton), Stephen Breyer (appointed by Bill Clinton), Elena Kagan (appointed by Barack Obama), and Sonia Sotomayor (appointed by Barack Obama).
Keep in mind the President/"Deciderer," George W. Bush, who appointed Samuel Alito & Chief Justice John G. Roberts.
Since I have seen a lot of interest in my news feed about the Hobby Lobby ruling I thought some of you all might enjoy a paper I wrote on the case last semester. I was wrong (or perhaps hopeful) in my predictions of how the justices would interpret the law. Here you go: Hobby Lobby’s Do-It-Yourself Birth Control Kit The Court will correctly decide that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act cannot be constitutionally applied. The Court will also decide that the Health and Human Services birth control mandate is not a First Amendment violation. It will be a five to four decision. Chief Justice John Roberts, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan will be in the majority. The dissent will be Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Justices will concur in the same manner which held that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional.

Voted together, though Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. have sometimes taken a more incremental approach.
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — This Monday the United States Supreme Court by a five-to-four vote struck down one of the key rationales for founding the United States in the first place. “The separation of church and state has been a cornerstone of American democracy for over two hundred years,” said Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the majority. “Getting rid of it was long overdue.” Justice Antonin Scalia said “Last year, we gutted the Voting Rights Act, and today we did the First Amendment,” he said. “We’ll just have to see what’s left.”

GUARDIAN April 29, 2013 "*** The US Supreme Court endorsed the Environmental Protection Agency's efforts to deal with air pollution blowing across state lines on Tuesday, in an important victory for the Obama administration as well as downwind states. The court's 6-2 decision unblocks a 2011 rule requiring 28 eastern states to reduce power-plant emissions that carry smog and soot particles across state lines, hurting the air quality in downwind states. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing the court's majority opinion, said the EPA's formula for dealing with cross-state air pollution was “permissable, workable and equitable”. Justice Samuel Alito recused himself, and justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented. The decision delivers an important victory to the EPA which has wrestled for years with trying to regulate air pollution as it moves beyond smokestacks and tailpipes. It is also a win for states such as Connecticut, where 93% of air pollution is from out-of-state sources. Major power c ...

The Best Argument for Marriage I’ve Ever Heard Testifying before the Indiana House Judiciary Committee on Jan. 13, Ryan T. Anderson, the William E. Simon Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, argued to a room full of policymakers: Here is Anderson’s full testimony transcribed, extracted from his blog post: I will be speaking today from the perspective of political science and philosophy to answer the question “What Is Marriage?” I’ve co-authored a book and an article in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy with a classmate of mine from Princeton, Sherif Girgis, and with a professor of ours, Robert George. Justice Samuel Alito cited our book twice in his dissenting opinion in the Supreme Court case involving the Defense of Marriage Act. The title of that book is “What Is Marriage?” An answer to that question is something we didn’t hear today from people on the other side. It’s interesting that we’ve had a three-hour conversation about marriage without much by way of answering that ...
'Jason Garrett may be the most embarrassing alumnus of the university that produced Aaron Burr, Samuel Alito and Donald Rumsfeld.'
I think racism, sexism and homophobia should be an impeachable offense in public office. I think at the very least someone needs to explain, how can a bigot uphold their oath of office when they or not culturally or emotionally capable of representing all Americans. People like Ted Cruz, Jeffery Beauregard Sessions, Jon Kyl, Tom Coburn and Richard Shelby are white Supremacist. They see Blacks and other people of color as subservient life forms. How can we move forward in the 21st century with such a low standard of legislative representation? You have several members of congress that are racist. They may serve the fears and frustrations of their white constituencies but they only serve as terrorist to their Black and Brown citizens in their home states. The same thing can be said about the current US Supreme Court. You have a Chief Justice, John Roberts and Associate Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito who have a knowable history of racism. The US Senate has a history of confirming justices that have ...

In McDonald versus Chicago Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito wrote "Individual self-defense is 'the central component' of the 2nd Amendment right. Do you agree?
Chapter 1: The American System Part 3: Federalism Federalism in general revolves around the distribution of authority between a central government and regional governments according to the provisions of the Constitution. The conflict experienced between the proponents of a strong central government and proponents of state rights and personal liberty is best demonstrated by the Federalists who pushed for a strong central government and the anti-Federalists who worried that a strong federal government would encroach on the sovereignty of the states and on personal liberty. “The Federalist Papers” published in 1788 were a serious effort by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay to convince the American people to vote for the Union . This conflict led to a bloody Civil war (1861–1865) between Northern and Southern states after South Carolina abrogated its ratification of the Constitution and withdrew from the Union on December 20th, 1860 out of disagreement with the federal government over impo ...
Family Research Council---Tony Perkins An UNconventional Approach to Abortion, Parents' Rights Judging by the ObamaCare mess, Congress has enough to worry about without adding U.S. sovereignty to the mix. But in the Senate, where inefficiency is an art form, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is choosing to waste more of the chamber's time on an international treaty that could be one of the greatest threats to parents' rights that no one knows about. Like most U.N. treaties, this one sounds harmless enough. But behind its innocuous name, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), is dangerous language that cedes parental authority, expands abortion "rights," and chips away at U.S. sovereignty. Democrats say the U.S. should ratify the treaty to encourage other countries to "catch up" to our standards of treating everyone fairly, regardless of their handicaps. But America can be an example to the rest of the world without signing away our rights. After two decades of living under the str ...
DONT ASK ME, ASK JESUS ALL YOUR QUESTION ABOUT THE SABBATH DAY Part 23. Question:- Is It True that catholic church members are the people that are ruling this world? Answer:-The appointment of Sonia Solomayor to the U S A Supreme Court by president, Barack Obama on August 9th 2009 (the 1st Hispaoic and 3rd lady to be appointed to this high office) became the 6th sitting Catholic Justice and has created a new majority of 67%(6 out of 9), Jewish Justices constitute 22% (2 out of 9), the remaining protestant Justice represents 11%(1 out of 9). Ironically the previous Catholic jostice Samuel Alito (the 5th sitting Catholic) was appointed by President Bush on October 31 2005, exactly 488 years to the day of the traditional birthday of Protestantism. When was protestantism born? Protestantism was born on october 31st 1517 when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Catholic church, challenging the practice of selling indulgences by the authority of the Pope. For the price of a crime St Peter's ch ...
These disaffected Dems have given me many a headache here in FB and have unfriended most of them, I think. Many of them even go so far as to predict gigantic GOP wins for 2014 and 2016 and they will continue to vote their conscience by voting Green. Nicholas J. Evancik: The Tea Partiers are actually smarter than the Greens. The Tea Party knew they could be more effective by co opting an existing party and pushing it to the extreme right. As a third party, the Greens often siphon off just enough votes to allow Republicans to win, and that has resulted in the complete reversal of any environmental laws that were hard fought for and hard won decades ago. To be honest, if Greens did the same, and merged with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, that wing would be able to have an effect to offset and partially counterbalance the effect of conservative Democrats in the House. Certainly the election of 2000 in Florida would have been different. The Greens constantly deny that Nader gave Bush the electio ...
Some little know facts in the filibuster debate. For those of you just spreading crap without research or confirmation. Just cuz upworthy says it does not mean its true. Claims of Republican obstruction are not only demonstrably false, they are highly hypocritical. The very Democrats now seeking to manufacture confirmation controversy personally devised and carried out a systematic effort to block President Bush’s judicial nominees through an unprecedented use of the Senate filibuster. It is a matter of historical record that beginning in 2001, Senate Democrats dramatically changed the confirmation process. Throughout the Bush administration, Democrats actively sought to block numerous judicial nominees, forcing more than 30 cloture votes as Republicans tried to end persistent Democratic filibuster efforts. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), voted against cloture a record-setting 27 times. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), cast 26 votes to filibuster Bush nominees and, in 2003, defian ...
ANN HARRISON 15YRS (KB-Michael Taylor & Roderick Nunley-Strangers) November 1st, 2012 Taylor (born January 30th, 1967) is a Missouri prison inmate on death row, convicted of raping and murdering 15yr old Ann Harrison after abducting her from a school bus stop in Raytown, Missouri on March 22nd, 1989. Taylor was aided by Roderick Nunley, also currently on Missouri's death row for the same crime. Taylor and Nunley, by their own admissions in court, were under the influence of crack cocaine at the time of the crime. Taylor was scheduled to be executed February 1st, 2006, but was granted a stay of execution by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. The stay was issued on the grounds that lethal injection in Taylor's case could be cruel and unusual punishment. Missouri asked the Supreme Court to vacate the stay, allowing the execution. Justice Samuel Alito, in his first official act on the Supreme Court, voted with the majority (6-3) to refuse Missouri's request. Alito's vote made headlines ...
Trying to sort out the nuclear option taken yesterday by the Senate in judicial nominations, i.e., 60 votes are not required for confirmation. I've heard on the radio today (Mr. Limbaugh) that this is very bad. Very bad indeed. Question. How did Clarence Thomas get confirmed in 1991 by a 52-48 vote? He should have fallen eight votes short right? Or Samuel Alito in 2006 by a 58-42 count? Didn't he need 60 votes? Can anyone explain this?

Now that Dems have the offensive, they should be wise not to hesitate for a moment to fill everyone of those 93 judicial vacancies with progressively-leaning judges. Because if the GOP had the same opportunity, they would not only pack those vacancies with right-winged ideologues, like Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito; but the GOP would have also gone a step further to peel back the filibuster rules in the Senate to include Supreme Court nominees and most legislation. Make no doubt about that!! Therefore, I think Harry Reid made a mistake to not subject future Supreme Court nominees and most legislation to just a simple majority vote in the Senate also.

Supreme Court refuses to block controversial Texas abortion law WASHINGTON (AP) — A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state’s clinics to stop providing abortions. The justices voted 5-4 to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The court’s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect. The four liberal justices dissented. The case remains on appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. That court is expected to hear arguments in January, and the law will remain in effect at least until then. Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for the liberal justices, said he expects the issue to return to the Supreme Court once the appeals court issu ...

UPDATE Friday 5:51 pm: Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., on Friday afternoon ordered that the Court’s ruling in the “Baby Veronica” case will go into effect a week from now. That will return the case to the South Carolina Supreme Court to decide with which family the baby will live. Updated last SCOTUSBlog post as of Friday.
President Obama, whose election as the nation’s first black president was cited by critics of the law as evidence that it was no longer needed, said he was “deeply disappointed” by the ruling. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg summarized her dissent from the bench, an unusual move and a sign of deep disagreement. She cited the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and said his legacy and the nation’s commitment to justice had been “disserved by today’s decision.” She said the focus of the Voting Rights Act had properly changed from “first-generation barriers to ballot access” to “second-generation barriers” like racial gerrymandering and laws requiring at-large voting in places with a sizable black minority. She said the law had been effective in thwarting such efforts. The law had applied to nine states — Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia — and to scores of counties and municipalities in other states, including Brookly ...
Even those who support the 21 drinking age, which I don't, should be appalled at how it is being enforced in the Obama Police State.
But she has much higher name recognition than Samuel Alito/
Chuck Doswell and Vickie Doswell, Justice Samuel Alito seems to feel that your relationship is grounded in a fallacy. He feels this MUST be stopped before who knows what might happen. If you read this not even carefully, you'll see he acknowledges that the definition of marriage is based upon current "understanding" of what that means. But then he proffers a hypothesis, unproven of course, as a basis for worrying about unintended consequences. It is one of the most egregious examples of unstructured, illogical thinking I've seen. What a contrast to Chief Justice Robert's opinions, even those with which I disagree. In his opinion concurring with the dissent on the DOMA ruling: "...Past changes in the understanding of marriage -- for example, the gradual ascendance of the idea that romantic love is a prerequisite to marriage -- have had far-reaching consequences. We can expect something similar to take place if same-sex marriage becomes widely accepted. The long-term consequences of this change are not ...

Inforumblog.com June 27th with Sheila Liaugminas We have always been a nation whose government serves by the consent of the governed, with separate and enumerated powers, states’ rights, rule of law and all that. Things have been ‘evolving,’ in popular parlance. With the Supreme Court rulings on marriage this week, we got a paradigm shift from self-government to ‘the tyranny of the majority,’ though that needs clarification to understand the meaning of “majority”, the way most of the language we’re using these days could benefit from clarification. So just to recap quickly, John Adams, Alexis de Tocqueville and John Stuart Mill all referred to this term, roughly to mean ‘those who control the levers of power’, in my shorthand translation. Lord Acton put it thus: The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections. —The History of Freedom in Antiquity, 1877 It’s ...
The logical conclusion of this reasoning is that if the government could have enforced arranged marriage with a federal law, it should have, since no one could predict the outcome of these newfangled romantic-love marriages, which altered the institution of marriage forever.
Is an illusion of civil liberties all that is left? It has seemed that way for quite some time, as all the evidence piling up points to that conclusion. Here is the latest to that effect:

This is a sign that one of the first implemented provisions of Obamacare has had its intended effect: shifting costs from hospitals, taxpayers, and families to health insurance companies. Young people who are not able to take advantage of that provision experience a far different reality, and they might not be so keen on the Affordable Care Act. Here’s a look at why Americans aged 19 to 26 could hate Obamacare: 1) Nobody likes government pressur . ...

“I think the Supreme Court didn’t recognize the degree to which voter suppression is still a problem around the country.” -President Barack Obama America described by the Chief Justice, the one in which "blatantly discriminatory evasions of federal decrees are rare," is an America which has never once existed and which obviously does not exist today. The America the rest of us see so clearly with our own eyes, the America in which officials all over are actively seeking to suppress black and Hispanic votes, is the one that tens of millions of the rest of us have to live with, at least for now, without the protections of Section 4 of the venerable law. When rights are weakened for some, they are weakened for all. We all are much weaker today in the wake of this ruling. -Andrew Cohen

Supreme Court: Imprisoned Man Should Not Have Received Harsher Sentence a ruling Thursday, 8 justices agreed that a burglary conviction should not have enhanced the sentence By Allie Bidwell In one of three decisions handed down Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 that a 1970s conviction should not have been used to increase the sentence of a man imprisoned as an “armed career criminal.” Eight justices agreed in an opinion that Matthew Descamps, 56, should not have gotten a harsher penalty when he was convicted of possessing a firearm in a 2005 shooting incident. Justice Samuel Alito cast a dissenting vote. Though he could have been sentenced to 10 years in prison originally, Descamps has been serving a nearly 22-year sentence for the crime, according to the Associated Press. Because he had been convicted of multiple crimes, including a 1978 conviction for burglary in California, he fell under the Armed Career Criminal Act that requires a 15-year minimum sentence. Although Descamps argued that his b ...

Employee Rights Hurt by Supreme Court Decisions Today’s post comes from guest author Jon Rehm of the Nebraska Bar from Rehm, Bennett & Moore. Employee rights in the workplace took a step backward with the Vance and Nassar decisions made by the U.S. Supreme Court. So what does this mean in concrete terms for employees?Vance: The main takeaway from Vance is that employees must tell upper management and humanresources about workplace harassment. This has been federal law in the Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico and Rhode Island) and the 8th Circuit (Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri and Arkansas). In order to sustain a workplace harassment claim under federal law, employees must now be able to show that management knew about harassment and that management failed to take effective action against the harassment. Jon Rehm Nassar: Nassar made it more difficult to prove retaliation under federal law. In the 5-4 majority decision ...

The Rudest Justice: why is Samuel Alito so nasty?
Something to consider: The Federal Government has established a maximum security prison called ADX that houses everyone in maximum security, eating, sleeping, showering etc. with one hour out in either a room or a small enclosed outside area similar to a dog kennel. On its face it is for security. The Austin Police Department and Travis County Jails already have similar segregation for unruly inmates. However, ECHR judges met in a closed door conference with Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Sonia Sotomayor and State Department legal advisors to continue the practice of (SAM) Special Security Measures, that go beyond and limit communication between anyone except attorney's and immediate family. Letters from family may take 6 months to be cleared and all are subject to criminal prosecution if they disclose any ill treatment in conversations from a prisoner. It is important to understand that every police officer, every citizen and every activist have a sublime nu ...

This is not a victory for Human Rights, this is a victory for Atheists ideology to further their causes of undermining traditional family principles and to further their goal in damaging true moral standards founded on biblical principles by our forefathers.
The court said the father could not rely on the Indian Child Welfare Act for relief because he never had legal or physical custody at the time of adoption proceedings, which were initiated by the birth mother without his knowledge. Justice Samuel Alito said when "the adoption of an Indian child is voluntarily and lawfully initiated by a non-Indian parent with sole custodial rights, the (law's) primary goal of preventing unwarranted removal of Indian children and the dissolution of Indian families is not implicated." The oyate is in trouble, fear for our children, the second coming of boarding schools is upon us...

In a 5-4 decision that crossed ideological lines, the Supreme Court on Wednesday declined to rule on the merits of Proposition 8-California's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the court's majority that that the private proponents of Prop. 8 did not have standing to defend the measure in federal courts. The decision vacates the appeals court ruling holding the measure unconstitutional, but appears to leave intact a district judge's ruling that also found the measure unconstitutional. Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia joined with Roberts, as did liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan. Justice Anthony Kennedy dissented with conservative Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, as well as liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The ruling is likely to result in same-sex marriages going forward in California, but additional litigation is expected about the scope and validity of the district court's ruling.

Supreme Court strikes down Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to vote NBC's Pete Williams reports on the 7-2 decision that knocked down Arizona's requirement for would-be voters to show proof of U.S. citizenship. By Pete Williams and Erin McClam NBC News (June 17, 2013) The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an Arizona law that requires people to submit proof of citizenship when they register to vote. The vote was 7-2. Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, said that a 1993 federal law known as the Motor Voter Act takes precedence over the Arizona law because of its requirement that states "accept and use" the federal voter registration form. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, two members of the court's conservative wing, dissented. Only a handful of states have similar laws, which the states say are meant to reduce voter fraud. Civil rights groups said the Arizona law was an effort to discourage voting by legal immigrants, and they worried that more states would have followed ...

I just read a fact that I never realized and kind of bothers me. A lot of you will probably roll your eyes and say, "Who cares?". For all the talk about diversity in government, it usually just boils down to gender and race. According to the American Bar Association, there are 201 approved law schools in the U.S. that confer law degrees. But apparently all nine current members of the U. S. Supreme Court are products of the same three Ivy League law schools. Ruth Bader Ginsburg graduated from Columbia; Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Sonya Sotomayor from Yale, and the other five justices from Harvard.

Pray for our country. And pray especially for the continued well-being and dedication of these five individuals: Antonin Scalia, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Anthony Kennedy. Because it appears we all draw nearer to receiving what only the liberals deserve.
Most conservatives are worried and upset about having Obama as President for four more years, as well they should be. However, the Presidency isn't the only branch of government that warrants our concern...we must not forget the importance of the Supreme Court and the role Obama might play in how it deals with social issues for decades to come. Of course, the President nominates potential justices. There are four conservative judges right now, with Anthony Kennedy quite often serving as a "swing vote". Three are relatively young: John Roberts is 57; Clarence Thomas is 64; Samuel Alito is 62. However, the aforementioned Kennedy and Antonin Scalia are both 76. We need to pray that they can hang around until the age of 80, or othewise Obama will replace them with liberals, and we sure don't want that, as liberals would then control the Court.
Pray for the continued health of Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and, yes, even John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy

With all the political rhetoric and propaganda flying around it’s hard to make a decision based on facts because the facts are mixed in with all the other crap. Based on what I know to be fact, I will NEVER vote for a Republican for any office. I want to be represented by some one who only takes ONE oath when they except office. Not one to the USA, one to Norquist, one to the Tea Party and who knows what else. I think women should get equal pay for equal work and that a woman should have the right to sue an employer who does not pay them fairly. Lilly Ledbetter Act passed by Obama. Supreme Court Justices like Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, denied Ledbetter the right to sue her employer for decades of pay discrimination that is why Ledbetter Act was necessary. Any justices appointed by Romney will surely vote to overturn this. Romney may only be there for 4 years, but his court appointees will be able to screw things up for decades.
The Baltimore Sun endorses Obama for president. Barack Obama rescued an economy in crisis and restored our global leadership; he offers a chance for a secure, sustainable future. "We can't be sure which Mitt Romney would occupy the White House. But we can evaluate his campaign promises.

He would transfer control of Medicaid — which provides nursing home care and aid to the disabled in addition to health care for the poor — to the states, and severely cut federal support in the process. He would appoint Supreme Court Justices in the mold of Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, which would all but guarantee a reversal of Roe v. Wade and more conservative judicial activism along the lines of Citizens United. And he would repeal Obamacare, leaving millions without health insurance and eliminating any realistic mechanism for ...
Rommny has also said that if elected he will appoint Justices who think like Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito, all of whom supported Citizens United. President Obama, in contrast has shown us the kind of Justices he'd choose. He's picked two of them: Sonia Sotomayor (who joined Justice Steven's brilliant and inspiring Citizens United dissent) and Elena Kagan, who joined Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Breyer this spring seeking to get the Court to re-examine Citizens United.
Does anyone remember Barack Obama's State Of The Union Address in 2010, in which he directly castigated the Reagan/Bush Supreme Court for overturning most of the federal campaign finance laws that had been previously in effect, thus making it possible for all these anonymous and unaccountable PACS to spend whatever they want to place all of these outright lies on television? Does anyone remember how the black-robed John Roberts, Samuel Alito, and Antonin Scalia fidgeted in their chairs as he spoke? Even John McCain, who had either authored or supported much of the previous legislation, was appalled by the decision. It makes me sick.

we have stressed this before, the true power lies in the Supreme Court -- this is one of the more important reasons to vote -- here is a snipet from an article in Yahoo News -- "Whoever wins the election this fall may be in a position to radically change the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court, a legacy that far outlasts a four-year term. On Wednesday, the nine justices will hear oral arguments over whether and in what ways universities can use the race of applicants as a deciding factor in admissions. Just nine years ago, the Court upheld race in admissions in a 5-4 vote when swing justice Sandra Day O'Connor joined the liberal wing of the court for the decision. O'Connor has since been replaced by the much more conservative Samuel Alito, and some judicial experts think the relatively recent decision will be reversed, displaying how quickly court nominations have consequences on the law."
One of the issues in the upcoming Presidential election is, who will nominate the next Justic eto the United States Supreme Court. As the judges age, a President has the ability to shape the court for good or ill for the next 25 to 40 years, depending on the age of the jurist selected. Given the Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito debacle, I'm much happier with Obama making those decisions. It is too early to fully judge the impact of Elena Kagan andSonia Sotomayor. However, I'm much more comfortable with justices who can actually read a statute and interpret the law in a way that protects the rights of all of the citizens of the USA. When you vote, realize that the legacy of a President extends well beyond the next 4 or 8 years.
