Oaths and Offices

Another tricky question under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment is the definition of a state officer who is subject to the exclusion from office. The Federal Constitution contains no definition of a state officer, though Article VI says that all state executive and judicial officers "shall be bound by Oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution." One way of looking at this is that all state officers must take this oath. And maybe the definition of an officer who must take the oa...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Tuesday’s relists Not much is happening in D.C. right , so what can the Supreme Court do to give us a break from the tedium of endless ?

But with so many relists primed to grant, the court may make substantial inroads on filling its fall argument calendar on the next order list. Seven of this wee...

Argument analysis: Justices sympathetic to FCC in media ownership dispute

The Supreme Court heard oral argument on Tuesday morning in a dispute arising from the Federal Communications Commission’s attempts to deregulate local media ownership.

Prometheus Radio Project and National Association of Broadcasters v. Prometheus Radio Project, which the court consolidated for oral argument, center on the FCC...

Playing with Words While the World Burns: The Constitution Does Not Bar Future Senate Impeachment after January 20

  Victoria Nourse              There is significant Senate precedent that Donald Trump may be impeached after his Term ends. Experts on impeachment have explained the historical precedents. There are good reasons for this.   Why is impeachment necessary when the officer is not in office?   Answer: to bar the President from reelection and life-long taxpayer pensions. Unfortunately, when the impeachment trial begins, we are likely to see arguments from the President like the ones we ha...

A bloggy review of the sentencing year that was 2020

I always enjoy "year in review" pieces, even in years like 2020 that many folks may quite rightly be quite eager to forget.  So I figured I might as well "celebrate" the end of a rough year with a "bloggy" accounting of 2020 based on an all-too-quick review of some blog posts from the past year.  This accounting is not meant to be representative or even all that reflective of the year that was, it is just a list of a few post titles catching my eye for each month as I went though my 2020 archive...

Barrett MRAD SMR, 1 Mile Shot Attempt – Video Review

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- For quite a while now I’ve been wanting to shoot a mile. A few years ago I shot a 1000 yards for the first time, and I was immediately hooked. Long range shooting is thrilling in a way that is sometimes hard to convey to those who have never done it. The skill involved in calculating the drop and wind, to make a bullet fly that far, and land on target is very rewarding. After making that first 1000 Yard shot, it wasn’t terribly long after that I started thinking about...

Here, the ruling was seen as vindication after months of defying the pr...
