ANDREW C. MCCARTHY It was my honor to befriend Judge Robert Bork in the last years of his life. Not surprisingly, I don't find much amusement in the cesspool that judicial-confirmation politics has become since his name became a synonym for slander in 1987 -- a debacle that changed history for the worse in more ways than the woodenly whimsical Anthony Kennedy's assumption of what should have been the Bork seat....

BYRON YORK There's talk going around Resistance circles that when seven U.S. lawmakers, all Republicans, met with top Russian officials in Moscow over the Fourth of July recess, they didn't even bring up Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

RICH LOWRY There are few things more powerful in politics than a dumb idea whose time has come. This accounts for the seemingly inexorable momentum of the rallying cry, "Abolish ICE," which has rapidly gone from fantastical left-wing cause to mainstream Democratic issue embraced by prospective presidential candidates. The great advantage of "Abolish ICE" is precisely its witless simplicity and emotive symbolism removed from any practical considerations of government.... (more)

Bloomberg reported Thursday that Mueller is asking veteran prosecutors from the Justice Department and U.S. attorneys's offices, as well as FBI agents, for help with new legal battles that have cropped up as a result of his investigation.

THE HILL From the perspective of some House Democrats, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has the right message. She's just not always the best messenger. The Los Angeles lawmaker's early calls for President Trump's impeachment and viral showdowns with administration officials have endeared Waters to the party's young, liberal base. And those stances have also garnered the respect of many House Democrats, who admire how Waters, 79, sticks to her political convictions.... (more)

ALAN KEYES Ronald Reagan appointed Justice Anthony Kennedy to the U.S. Supreme Court on Sept. 11, 1987. In his nominating speech, President Reagan described the U.S. Circuit Judge Kennedy as "a true conservative – one who believes that our constitutional system is one of enumerated power – that it is we, the people, who have granted certain rights to the government, not the other way around.... Those three words, 'We the People,' are an all important reminder of the only legitimate source of the government's authority over its citizens...."... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT Remember when President Trump said we were going to win so much that we are going to get tired of it? That's exactly how it felt this past month. But I'm not tired. Far from it. The Supreme Court has been delivering, big time, on Mr. Trump's promise to restore the rule of law. And the left is showing America its profoundly un-American and uncivil face every single day. On June 4, the Court upheld the right of Christian baker Jack Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission not to be forced to help facilitate a same-sex "wedding."... (more)
