    Supreme Court Notified – Jaw Dropping Arrest Sends SHOCK WAVES

    Seems like every week another Democrat is trampling on the U.S. Constitution and trying to take away more rights from Americans. And the streak has continued after a stunning arrest sent shock waves in the swing state of Michigan — and the Supreme Court has been notified. Regardless of the outcome, this case will have serious constitutional ramifications and could set a national precedent. In 2015, a man named Keith Wood “was distributing pamphlets” claiming that people “could choose their conscience over the law if they were picked to serve on a jury.” Local news outlet WNEM reported that the controversial case has made its way to the state Supreme…

    Democrats Throw an Obamacare Hail Mary, Asks Supreme Court to Declare Law Constitutional

    Desperate Democrats have just thrown an Obamacare “Hail Mary” pass by asking the Supreme Court to rule that the health care law is constitutional, as Reuters reports: “The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives and 20 Democratic-led states asked the Supreme Court on Friday to declare that Obamacare does not violate the Constitution as lower courts have found in a lawsuit brought by Republican-led states.

Multiple law enforcement investigations, two failed Muslim majority immigration bans, we’ve had the failed sanctuary city order, we’ve had the failed repeal and replacement of ObamaCare. It’s a long list, I’ll stop there. And in an interview with Fox News Donald Trump is blaming the checks and balances that are constitutionally supported, that our government has is place, for his failures. What?

    Supreme Court and Capital Punishment | Constitutional Regulation

    LARRY TRIBE: Good afternoon. I’m very glad to see you all here. I’m Larry Tribe, and I’m honored that Carol asked me to moderate this closing panel discussion of the conference marking the publication of Carol and Jordan’s monumental work, Courting Death. Unfortunately, the only parts of today’s conference that I was able to attend were this morning’s panel, which was spectacular, I thought, and this final panel, which I hope will not disappoint. If the panel on race and the panel on broader criminal justice issues were nearly as exciting as I found the first panel, and if Don Verrilli was his usual, very thoughtful and deeply insightful self,…
