Trump Surrogate Looks Forward To Supreme Court Criminalizing Flag Burning 3.12.2016 Crooks Liars
Even though Megyn Kelly clearly disagreed with Donald Trump’s anti-American demand that flag burners should be prosecuted and/or stripped of citizenship, she nonetheless offered a friendly forum for a Trump supporter – and attorney, no less – to equate flag-burning protest with arson and to suggest that kind of dissent should be squelched. Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in ...

Voting Rights Roundup: Federal judges strike a major blow against partisan redistricting 3.12.2016 Daily Kos
Leading Off ● Wisconsin: Foes of partisan gerrymandering scored a monumental victory late last month when a three-judge federal panel  struck down the Republican-drawn map  of the Wisconsin state Assembly as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. State Senate districts could also be affected since they each consist of three nested Assembly districts. Wisconsin is among the most heavily gerrymandered states in the country, and Democrats won the statewide popular vote for the legislature in 2012, but these maps helped give Republicans a majority of seats. Critically, however, this new ruling could reverberate well beyond Wisconsin because the case now  sets the stage for a future Supreme Court decision  that could set major limits on partisan gerrymandering nationwide. An earlier Supreme Court ruling called Vieth v. Jubelirer  previously held  that partisan gerrymandering could be unconstitutional. But in that case, Justice Anthony Kennedy, as the deciding vote, refused to strike down the particular map ...

Labor Law Faces Dire New Threats From Supreme Court Under Trump 3.12.2016 Truthout.com
Workers demonstrate outside of Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, July 1, 2016. (Mark Makela / The New York Times) If Janus v. AFSCME makes it to a Trump Supreme Court, it could pose an existential threat to organized labor and an end to exclusive representation. If this happens, labor's hope for survival will rest in intensive grassroots organizing of the sort that the Culinary Workers Union pursued in right-to-work Las Vegas. Workers demonstrate outside of Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, July 1, 2016. (Mark Makela / The New York Times) Amid the fallout of Donald Trump's electoral victory, anti-union groups are scheming about renewed possibilities for a brutal rollback of federal labor law in the coming years. US organized labor was able to breathe a sigh of relief this past February when Justice Antonin Scalia's death also brought with it the death of the Supreme Court case Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, which would have essentially imposed ...

Filibuster Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee for FOUR years 2.12.2016 Daily Kos
When a government is legitimately elected, you oppose it. You are the loyal opposition. When a government is illegitimately elected, you resist it. Today, we are the resistance. And that means standing in the way of everything that illegitimate government does.  Let’s go back to this before the election: Speaking to reporters after a campaign rally for a Republican U.S. Senate candidate here, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said that there was “precedent” for a Supreme Court with fewer than nine justices — appearing to suggest that the blockade on nominee Merrick Garland could last past the election. Thanks Ted, for paving the way to what should be the Democrats’ position on any Trump nominee to the Supreme Court. OBSTRUCT, until either of these happens: 1) We have a president elected by at least a plurality of the American people,  2) Republicans win a filibuster-proof majority in 2018, or 3) Republicans eliminate the filibuster.  Unless those apply, Democrats should stand in the way of everything Trump does, ...
