Barack Hussein Obama Won’t Nominate a ‘Moderate’ Supreme Court Justice | Number of Terror Plots in the US Continues to Grow

Good afternoon from Capitol Hill, where resistance to the growth of government shouldn’t be futile. Heritage Foundation legal fellow Alden Abbott identifies an agency he says is too powerful and unaccountable—and needs to go. The number of Islamist terror plots directed at America since 9/11 just climbed to 83. Heritage’s Riley Walters has the update. And did President Obama really say he won’t name a “moderate” to the Supreme Court? Watch. If you’re in the area and wish to pay respects to Antonin Scalia, his body will lie in repose in the court’s Great Hall for public viewing Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
This government agency offends the Constitution and needs to be eliminated. The Heritage Foundation’s Alden Abbott writes that a little-known federal government agency imposes enormous costs on consumers and financial service providers through costly and unwarranted command-and-control regulation.
Obama says no to “moderate” Supreme Court nominee. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said the Senate will not confirm a nominee while Obama, a Democrat, holds office. Republican majorities hold both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, reports The Daily Signal’s Mariana Barillas.
Number of terror plots in U.S. continues to grow. The Department of Justice has released information on two past instances that bring the total number of plots and attacks to 83, writes The Heritage Foundation’s Riley Walters.
What we’re reading: Hans von Spakovsky spoke with several former Supreme Court clerks who argued that Antonin Scalia’s votes on several Supreme Court cases could still count. “Some believe it would be inappropriate for Chief Justice [John] Roberts to discard and discount the votes of Justice Scalia on all of the cases that have already been argued, even if those opinions have not yet been written, when Justice Scalia informed him and the other justices what his vote was on the case,” von Spakovsky writes for Conservative Review.


In 2007, approximately 18 months before President George W. Bush left office, Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat – New York., said the Senate “should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances.” Today, he’s singing a different tune. Watch the video.
