  • Obamacare: Bad 6th Circuit Decision Assures Supreme Court Review in Fall

    Supreme Court: Save Wal-Mart, The Economy Lives Better

    The Supreme Court’s 9 to 0 decision today in Wal-Mart v.

    In approving Wisconsin’s new collective bargaining law yesterday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court dropped an anvil on Dane County Judge MaryAnn Sumi’s political rulings.  The state Supreme Court vacated all of Sumi’s orders against Wisconsin’s new labor law, declaring them void ab initio or invalid from the inception.  This avoids the … More

    Arizona Wins Big in Supreme Court Immigration Ruling

    Arizona won a spectacular victory today in the Supreme Court in its ongoing efforts to do something about the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who reside in the state and cost Arizona taxpayers an estimated $1.3 billion a year. In its ruling against the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and … More

    Vote Against Goodwin Liu a Victory for the Rule of Law

    In one of the most important votes on Obama’s lower court judicial nominees, Democrats were unable to overcome the filibuster of Ninth Circuit Court nominee Goodwin Liu in a vote in the U.S. Senate this afternoon. It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster under the Senate rules, and the … More

    Hoyer Breaks with Obama over Executive Order on Political Speech

    We have had the first break in the Democratic cone of silence over President Obama’s proposed Executive Order that attempts to implement provisions of the failed DISCLOSE Act.  The EO would require government contractors to report all of their contributions (including the personal contributions of their employees) to candidates, as … More

    The Heckler’s Veto of Arizona’s Immigration Law

    It should come as no surprise to anyone that a panel of judges of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order today refusing to lift the stay issued by a federal district court against Arizona’s immigration law. After all, the Ninth Circuit is the most often overturned appeals court … More
