SCOTUS Has Exposed Liberal Lies on ACB and Court Packing

Thursday's decisions by the Supreme Court were a major defeat for certain Democrat politicians and liberal activists. Yes, Obamacare was preserved in a 7-2 decision, and in another 9-0 decision, religious liberty was preserved. But liberal court packing activists lost yesterday. As the Committee for Justice wrote:

Consider the contrast between reality and Democrats' exaggerated predictions and fear mongering. Last fall, during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, Democratic senator after Democratic senator told stories of constituents who would suffer, if not die, were Barrett confirmed. She would provide the fifth "far right" vote for striking down the Affordable Care Act, they said, some of them implying that Barrett had promised President Trump to strike down the ACA in return for her nomination. . . .

Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed, but so much for closely divided far right decisions and constituents robbed of health insurance by a nefarious deal between Barrett and Trump. Instead, what we got today was a 7-2 rejection of the challenge to the ACA with Barrett in the majority, a unanimous and narrow decision protecting religious objections to same-sex marriage, and an overall picture of a moderate Court which will sometimes disappoint liberals, sometimes disappoint conservatives, and often the split the baby.

AG Garland Announces Plan to Enact Election Policies Promoting the Democrat Cause

Last week, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the Department of Justice would be expanding its voting rights staff to directly oppose GOP efforts seeking to enact state voting laws that promote fair and honest elections. As a piece by RedState put it:

[Garland] made it clear that the work of DOJ would be to advance the causes and interests of the Democrat Party for the purpose of improving its chances at the ballot box. . .

SCOTUS Decision in Terry is an Embarrassment to Biden's Solicitor General

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a decision in Terry v. United States. The holding is not particularly novel. The Court upheld Terry's sentence for a drug offense because recent changes to mandatory minimum sentencing did not apply to the offense he was convicted of. As Ed Whelan explained in the National Review, this decision is an embarrassment for the Biden Solicitor General because the DOJ decided not to defend the lower court's decision at the last minute.

House Campus Free Speech Caucus Created as Biden DOJ Appears to Abandon Protections for Religious Institutions

College campuses are often seen as a battleground for the First Amendment. On Monday, Reps. Jim Jordan and Kat Cammack announced the creation of a campus free speech caucus with the intention of raising awareness among their colleagues about the challenges that many students, professors, and administrators alike face when exercising their First Amendment rights on campus. Jordan and Cammack will partner with Young America's Foundation on the initiative:

“The First Amendment is under attack on campuses across the country,” said Congressman Jim Jordan. “Every day, students and faculty are forced to self-censor out of fear that they will be ‘canceled’ by the mob. The Campus Free Speech Caucus, led by Rep. Kat Cammack and inspired by YAF, will work with Congress to push back on ‘woke’ cancel culture and defend freedom for Americans everywhere.”

At Hearing, Dems Conveniently Ignore Chaos Caused by Dem Election Officials in 2020

On Friday, the Committee on House Administration's Elections Subcommittee held a hearing entitled, "Voting In America: The Potential For Polling Place Quality And Restrictions On Opportunities To Vote To Interfere With Free And Fair Access To The Ballot." Democrat hypocrisy was on full display as they conveniently ignored how many of the areas that experienced problems with voting in 2020 due to polling place closures were run by Democrat elections officials.

Poll Finds that Voters Prefer Voting In-Person

A recent poll by the Bipartisan Policy Center and Morning Consult found that Americans were overwhelmingly satisfied with their voting options in 2020 and that voters prefer to vote in person on Election Day more than any other voting option. This directly refutes the narrative that the Democrats have been pushing in their attempts to implement radical changes to our election system through the Corrupt Politicians Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

Complaint Shows How MLB is Hurting Black Americans with Their Anti-Election Integrity Effort

Last week, Job Creators Network filed a complaint against Major League Baseball (MLB) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York over the economic damage caused by the League's decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta because of a recent election law signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (SB 202). ABC news reported

The complaint says the metro Atlanta area has suffered “staggering” financial losses from relocating the game, citing how more than 8,000 hotel reservations have been canceled. More than 41,000 MLB fans were expected to attend All-Star game events, it said.

Democrat Commissioners Aim to "Zombify" the FEC

In Tuesday’s New York Times, Shane Goldmacher reported on the latest tactic by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission to punish more Americans for exercising free speech rights: deadlock enforcement votes, conceal the agency action from the public, and then default the agency in federal court. The Democrat strategy entails concealing from federal courts that the agency has decided matters on the merits in order to mislead federal judges into thinking the agency has failed to act in a timely manner and thereby trick federal judges into authorizing private enforcement lawsuits by liberal activist groups against conservatives.

ACLU Abandons Its Free Speech Principles For Democrat Politics

A report by the New York Times has confirmed what we already knew, the ACLU values the promotion of progressive ideology more than its core missions such as protecting freedom of speech. The article explains:

Its national and state staff members debate, often hotly, whether defense of speech conflicts with advocacy for a growing number of progressive causes, including voting rights, reparations, transgender rights and defunding the police.

Democrats, Stop What You're Doing and Listen to Justice Breyer

In his upcoming book The Authority of the Court and the Peril of Politics, United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer reflects upon the "authority of the Supreme Court—how that authority was gained and how measures to restructure the Court could undermine both the Court and the constitutional system of checks and balances that depends on it." 

And if Justice Breyer's motivation for writing the book wasn't easy enough to see from the book's description, "measures to restructure the Court" is Justice Breyer's way of calling out Democrats' efforts to – you guessed it – pack the court.  Justice Breyer's opinion on court-packing could not be any clearer:

“Proposals have been recently made to increase the number of Supreme Court justices,” [Justice] Breyer notes. “I aim to make those whose reflexive instincts may favor significant structural (or similar institutional) changes, such as forms of court-packing, think long and hard before embodying those changes in law.”
