Newtonian and Anti-Newtonian Political and Judicial Polarization

For the symposium on Neal Devins and Lawrence Baum's new book, The Company They Keep: How Partisan Divisions Came to the Supreme Court (Oxford University Press, 2019). The PEW Research Group’s surveys of public opinion in the United States document the fundamental regime change that has taken place over the last half century.

Tampering with the Supreme Court for political gain wrong for America

President Franklin Roosevelt’s re-election in 1936 was the largest electoral college victory since George Washington’s uncontested elections. His popular vote triumph was 60.8 percent to 36.5 percent. FDR saw the vote as an endorsement of his New Deal approach to the Great Depression. Arraigned against him was the U.S. Supreme Court, which the year before had struck down the heart of the New Deal: the National Industrial Recovery Act. With a tremendous political wind at his back, and the target ...

Trump’s Supreme Court Appointees Take Opposite Sides In Two Cases

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s two Supreme Court appointees were on opposite sides of two of three cases that the justices decided Tuesday. The two new justices have solidified conservative control of the Supreme Court, but they do not march in lockstep, at least in the small corners of the court’s work dealing with Indian treaties and maritime law. In one case, Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court’s liberal justices in ruling that a Washington state Indian tribe doesn’t have to p...

Gorka Tells Reporter To ‘Go Outside And Lick A Metal Street Lamp’

Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka earned himself a spot in the reporter response Hall of Fame with an absolute zinger to the Daily Beast’s request for comment Thursday: “go outside and lick a metal street lamp.” The weather was in the teens in Washington D.C. when Gorka delivered his devastating literary triumph. The story for which the Daily Beast sought comment is less deserving of praise: Gorka is peddling a conspiracy theory forged in the fires of QAnon that Supreme Court Justice Ru...

"Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal ran a story on how three conservatives nominated to the rogue Ninth Circuit..."

"... but whose nominations lapsed with the last Congress, had been left off the list of nominees resubmitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Many of us cried foul. According to the story, the White House was trying to reach some kind of a bargain with Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, allegedly to grease the skids for the inevitable replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. There are several reasons to not engage in negotiations with either Feinstein or Harris. Harris is runn...

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...

Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said she doesn't plan on retiring before the presidential election in 2020 — but Republicans appear to have other ideas. Donald Trump’s White House and close allies have begun preparing for her replacement, with senior Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham saying he will be “hell-bent” on replacing the notorious liberal justice with a conservative upon her departure — a move that could radically shift the balance of the court for decades. Despite...

White House Quietly Prepares Short List, Eyeing Ginsburg’s Absence From Bench
