Late-Night Hosts Freak Out Over Supreme Court Retirement, Possible Trump Nominations

US Supreme Court Upholds Trump's Travel Ban

Id., at 132-133. He added: "That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain unsafe countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!" Picture taken on June 23, 2018.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has said he plans to retire after three decades as a pivotal vote on the highest u.s. judicial body, giving President Donald Trump an opportunity to make the court more firmly conservative.

On Feb. 13, 2016, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly, and before his body was even cold, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a statement saying the Senate would not vote on his replacement until after the 2016 election.

Plaintiffs in the case, dubbed Trump v. Hawaii, argued that the third ban was merely an extension of the first proposed travel ban signed by the president one week after his inauguration, which sought to immediately suspend admission into the country by individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries.

"Kennedy is often the pivotal vote on a nine-member court that already is fundamentally hostile to the abortion rights guaranteed in the landmark case".

Kennedy was not at all a staunch supporter of abortion rights; he authored the decision upholding the federal ban on so-called "partial birth abortions" in Gonzales v. Carhart.

Noah Gottschalk, of the Boston-based charitable organization Oxfam America, said the decision upholds an "un-American" policy that "institutionalizes" religious discrimination and sends a signal the world the U.S.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who was among those who challenged the ban, said, "we may not always win, but we'll always stand up for what's right".

Online Retailers Lose State Tax Subsidy
The US Supreme Court ruled Thursday that American states had the right to tax internet sales of goods and services. Kennedy wrote that the 1992 precedent that affirmed that a physical presence is required - a case called Quill v.

If the midterm elections look more like the special elections we've had so far this cycle, in which Democratic turnout significantly outpaced Republican turnout, the GOP is very likely to lose the House and the Democratic wave could reach epic proportions.

At least Fallon has more faith than most in Trump's ability to make the best selection for our nation.

Here, the Senate and the 2020 presidential campaign collide.

A decisively conservative bench would embolden the GOP to encourage more of those kinds of cases to the highest court with a certainty of victory.

Earlier, Trump said in an official statement issued by the White House, "Today's Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution". But there's no actual evidence that Collins or Lisa Murkowski (R-Ala.) would buck their party on such a consequential vote. and a smart nominee will avoid commenting on how they'd rule on hypothetical cases, as Justice Neil M. Gorsuch did in his confirmation hearings previous year.

He said Americans want justices who will defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, while Democrats want "judicial activists".

So if a new justice is in fact confirmed in September or October, will the saga actually affect voting in November? "He would just never say "never" on those social issues", Crawford said.

Kennedy said he has informed his colleagues and Trump of his plans, and that his retirement will take effect at the end of July.
