By Ryan Foley Editor’s note. This appeared at Newsbusters. The conversation Mr. Foley is referring to took place the day before President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. During Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd interviewed Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois. A …Continue reading "Chuck Todd Calls Out Dick Durbin for His Hypocrisy on SCOTUS"
By Scott Whitlock The new Supreme Court pick is very “controversial,” whoever he or she turned out to be. That was the consensus of ABC’s Nightline. About 90 minutes before Donald Trump announced the name of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Nightline’s Twitter page blasted: Tonight on Nightline, @TerryMoran reports on the controversial Supreme Court Justice pick …Continue reading "ABC’s Nightline Blasts ‘Controversial’ Nominee Before He’s Even Announced!"
By Dave Andrusko As we approach the hour when pro-life President Donald Trump announces his selection to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the flurry of articles—already mountainous—grows even larger. One of the more hostile and unfair (what else?) New York Times stories was headlined, “How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment” [nytimes.com].” Another more …Continue reading "The war on the right of conscience and the next Supreme Court nominee"
By Dave Andrusko We are hours away from pro-life President Donald Trump’s announcement who will be his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. The hysteria index is now approaching 100% as the Abortion Industrial Complex gears up to fight whomever the President selects regardless of experience, qualifications, and intellectual firepower. However that …Continue reading "“Rolling back” Roe v. Wade could well help protect other vulnerable patients"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Everyone is figuratively on pins and needles in anticipation of Monday’s expected announcement by pro-life President Donald Trump who he will nominate to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring. As we all know this will be President’s second opportunity to fill a vacancy. In 2017, he selected Neil Gorsuch, …Continue reading "Theory behind Roe “does not make any sense”"
By Tom Blumer The left’s paranoia has been quite visible since Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement last week. Now their bigotry is showing, particularly in the case of potential Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Monday on MSNBC, Zerlina Maxwell went after Barrett, whom she called “Barnett,” for being “very Catholic,” and for …Continue reading "MSNBC’s Zerlina Maxwell Smears Judge Amy Barrett: ‘Very Catholic,’ Spoke to ‘Hate Group’"
By Dave Andrusko As you can imagine, the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy and the all-guns-blazing resistance that has already begun by pro-abortionists were topics of great interest at last week’s annual National Right to Life Convention in Kansas City, Kansas. There will be endless speculation over the specific candidate pro-life President Trump will nominate. …Continue reading "President Trump to announce Supreme Court nominee July 9"
By Clay Waters A few Supreme Court cases just failed to go the left’s way, and now they are trashing the First Amendment they once supposedly revered. New York Times Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak gave the reversal his seal of approval in a long lead story for Sunday’s front page: “How Free Speech Was …Continue reading "After Supreme Court Decisions, NYT Lead Story Questions Value of ‘Weaponized’ Free Speech"
By Dave Andrusko Elsewhere at NRL News Today, we’ve posted two speeches (here and here) from a Friday general session titled, “Saving Lives Means Saving the House and Senate in 2018.” How ironic/telling that just as NRLC President Carol Tobias and Political Director Karen Cross were reinforcing the incredible importance of holding the Senate so …Continue reading "Remembering how important Supreme Court appointments were to Donald Trump’s victory"
By Chelsy Gomez The Supreme Court recently issued its ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra holding that pro-life pregnancy centers are likely to succeed in their challenge to a California law that forced them to advertise and refer for abortion. The Court held that the centers were entitled to a preliminary injunction halting the law’s enforcement. …Continue reading "Supreme Court recognizes government cannot compel speech that violates one’s deeply held beliefs"
By Dave Andrusko Quick and important reminder. NRLC’s annual convention begins in three days, running June 28-30. You can still pay the “early” registration fee if you register by noon on Tuesday. After that, online registration will close but you will still be able to register as a walk in, any day of the convention, …Continue reading "Court down to last days to decide law violating pregnancy center’s First Amendment rights"
By Dave Andrusko The Supreme Court did not deliver its decision Monday in the case of California’s so-called Reproductive FACT Act [“FACT” stands for Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency]. A decision could come later this week. I think it would be fair to say that the savvier pro-abortionists understand that this case has the …Continue reading "Why the hysterical response to women-helping centers?
