Relist Watch: The Muller Report

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. I normally try to have Relist Watch written up by Wednesday after the court issues its order list. Here it is late Thursday and I’m just getting it out. It’s not just that I’m lazy, though I am. It’s that I’ve been mulling over the five new relists, and what I think their prospects are for Supreme Court review. In fact, I’ve been mulling these cases so deeply that you could call today’s installment the “Muller Report.” I like the ring of it. I’ve also spent ...

Rep. Ted Lieu plays Candace Owens' Hitler remarks on phone during House hearing on white nationalism

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on white nationalism this morning and Republicans wasted no time making themselves look like idiots. GOP committee members invited Candace Owens, communications director of Turning Point USA and creator of the hilarious fail Blexit, to testify that white nationalism is all just a bunch of scare tactics ginned up by the Democrats to keep minorities in line. Owens did exactly that, telling the committee, "We hear over and over again about black cons...

Where Was Charles Evers After Martin Luther King, Jr Was Murdered?

At 6:01pm on April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered in Memphis, TN at the Lorraine Motel. Recently, I posted a statement from the John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation regarding the night of Martin Luther King Jr’s murder. Since 2007, John MacArthur has publicly stated that he traveled from Jackson, MS to Memphis, TN the night MLK was murdered. His stories strongly imply that his companions on that trip were civil rights icons John Perkins and Charles Evers, as well as other unnamed ...

Relist Watch

John Elwood previews next Monday’s likely relists. This week’s installment is going to be brief, but at least it won’t be funny. It’s not just that I’m pressed for time, though I am: As I type this, the power is out for my entire neighborhood, and I sit hunched over my laptop in inky blackness. Apparently, the universe has decided that my gratuitous hyperlinks need to be given a rest. There was one grant out of last week’s relists, pushing the Kansas Supreme Court into an early lead as the most-...

"For six weeks now Hagedorn has been mired in negative stories and controversy over his extreme views on a host of topics" — that was the story 2 weeks ago.

After Hagedorn's victory in yesterday's Wisconsin Supreme Court election, I'm reading "Vetting fail/Republicans skip background check before pushing Brian Hagedorn for Supreme Court" in the Madison newspaper Isthmus (from March 21st).We’ve learned that back in 2006, as a married 27-year-old father of two and law student at Northwestern University, Hagedorn wrote a blog as “a fellow soldier in the culture wars,” where he condemned the 2003 U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Lawrence v. Texas, which...

State Supreme Court Races Emerge As Another Front In Redistricting Wars

Wisconsin voters head to the polls on Tuesday, bringing an end to a viciously fought state Supreme Court race. Millions of dollars were spent. Conservative candidate Brian Hagedorn, legal counsel to former Gov. Scott Walker, was pilloried for past comments calling the NAACP a “disgrace to America” and comparing homosexuality to bestiality. Former Attorney General Eric Holder visited Madison to campaign for liberal candidate Lisa Neubauer, calling the race something voters “need to be engaged ...

SNL hilariously mocks the bizarre Jussie Smollett saga in new sketch

The second sketch on Saturday Night Live this weekend pulled no punches and brilliantly tackled the downright bizarre saga of Jussie Smollett. Smollett, if you recall, is the Empire star who, by all accounts, staged his own mugging as part of an ill-conceived effort to make a name for himself and generate some buzz. As the police investigation into the mugging went along, it was soon revealed that Smollett paid his "muggers" a generous sum of money for their services.The SNL sketch itself begins...
