Court declines to reinstate COVID-19 accommodations for elections in Wisconsin

The Supreme Court on Monday rejected requests from two groups of Wisconsin voters and the Democratic National Committee to reinstate modifications to election rules that a federal judge had ordered for the November election because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The truly important decision in Bush v. Gore as a practical matter was not the merits ruling released on Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2000, but instead the stay decision issued the previous Saturday, Dec. 9. That stay surely ranks among ...

Report: Ratcliffe Trying To Pull Off Another Pre-Debate Russia Doc Dump

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe again tried to declassify documents that cast doubt on Russia’s 2016 attempt to help President Donald Trump win the election just hours before a 2020 presidential debate, according to Reuters.  Ratcliffe pulled a similar stunt before the first presidential debate, releasing unvetted Russian disinformation about Hillary Clinton’s campaign without contextualizing or disavowing it. The Russian chatter, which Ratcliffe publicized in a letter to Sen...

Is This When Biden Gets Torricelli'd?

Back in March I predicted that Joe Biden would not be the Democrat candidate on the ballot November 3.  I cited as precedent the 2002 Senate campaign of New Jersey Senator Robert Torricelli.  When it became obvious that Torricelli, under criminal investigation, was not going to win that race, the DNC - in direct violation of election laws for the state of New Jersey - replaced him on the ticket with former Senator Frank Lautenberg.  The RNC appealed.  The New Jersey Supreme Court rubber-stamped ...

Suspect provenance of Hunter Biden data cache prompts skepticism and social media bans

A cache of emails and other selected data purportedly from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden were published today by the New York Post. Ordinarily a major leak related to a figure involved in a controversy of Presidential importance would be on every front page — but the red flags on this one are so prominent that few editors would consent to its being published as-is. Almost no news outlets have reported the data or its origin as factual, and Facebook and Twitter have both restricted sharing of th...

Those who believe the NBA has become too political are forgetting the name on the trophy. “Politics is the art of the possible,” Larry O’Brien said. He was a fixer who understood that elections could be won by the door-knocking, phone-calling masses. He helped pick out Jack Kennedy’s casket. He stood near the place where Bobby Kennedy lay bleeding at the Ambassador Hotel. His father was a bartender, born in Ireland, and Larry was born in Springfield, Mass., home of basketball’s Hall of Fame. He ...

Justices add seven new cases to docket, including major voting-rights dispute

The Supreme Court officially begins its new term on Monday, but the unofficial start to the term came on Friday morning, when the justices issued an initial set of orders from their “long” conference – the first conference since mid-July, when they began their summer recess. The justices granted seven new cases, for a total of four hours of additional argument time. Perhaps the most significant grant of the day came in two cases that will be argued together: Arizona Republican Party v. Democrati...
