This might be an enduring achievement of the Trump Presidency: after less than two years in office, US President Donald Trump has been able to get a second Justice appointed to the US Supreme Court’s bench – this time filling a post vacated through the resignation of ultra-liberal Justice Anthony Kennedy by a judge with conservative credentials. There is hope that this could shift the supreme judicial instance in the US, which has a strong influence on judicial developments also in Europe, back to sanity.

Strange goings-on at the CJEU: Katharina Pabel, a highly respected professor for European Law who had been proposed by the Austrian government as a new judge at the EU’s supreme judiciary institution has, after a hearing with the Committee under Article 255 TFEU, withdrawn her candidacy.

This is great news. Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced his retirement, opening an opportunity for President Trump to nominate another Supreme Court Justice after Neil Gorsuch. There is reason to hope that, as in the case of Gorsuch, the appointee will be a credible interpret of the law, not a judicial activist. But while Gorsuch replaced another good lawyer, this is now the opportunity to replace a bad lawyer through a good one. Continue reading “US: Justice Anthony Kennedy retires. At last.”

The CJEU’s decision in the Coman case is out, and as some rumours in the last weeks already indicated, it is yet another case in which a judicial authority is cheekily abusing the powers conferred to it in order to promote a highly controversial agenda for which the EU has no mandate. The trick is always the same: take a legal provision that was adopted years ago and give it a temerarious new interpretation of which no serious-minded person will ever believe that it was intended when the text was drafted.

Yes, it is possible! The trend towards legalized sodo-“marriage” is not irreversible; social development is not a one-way road into decadence and moral corruption.
The tiny Caribbean nation of Bermuda is the first country in the world were legalized sodo-“marriage”, which had been imposed on the unwilling nation by the arrogant and preposterous judicial fiat of its Supreme Court in May 2017, is repealed.

It takes little to draw the ire of the LGBT-lobby. The European-Commission-financed pro-sodomy pressure group ILGA Europe has announced on its website that it is “deeply concerned” by “reported homo- and transphobic publications and statements” of the newly elected Spanish ECtHR judge, María Elósegui Itxaso. And one of the lobby’s most active minions in the European Parliament, Juan Fernando Lopez Aguilar, a Spanish Member of the European Parliament’s S&D Group, is making himself busy with collecting signatures of his fellow MEPs to protest against Mrs. Elósegui’s appointment.
