Washington Supreme Court Rules Bar Exam
Negatively Impacts Minorities, Will No
Longer Require It For Lawyers

Original Article

The Washington State Supreme Court officially abolished the traditional bar exam requirement for aspiring lawyers Friday due to its perceived negative impact on minorities. The Supreme Court has announced that the bar exam is no longer a requirement for those who aspire to be practicing lawyers. The Bar Licensure Task Force claims that the exam is only minimally effective in measuring competency and noted its unfair barrier to marginalized communities aspiring to practice law, according to the Washington Administrative Office of the Courts. The Task Force on Bar Licensure found that the usual bar exam unfairly stops people from underrepresented groups from entering the legal profession.

The same thing could be said for law school. Are they going to drop that requirement, too?

God help you if you need a lawyer in the state of Washington. The lawyer you hired does not know the law. Who benefits? Criminals. They will have real lawyers.

This is the stupidest thing I've heard in the last hour. Stupid is coming in hot lately. So what "law" are these marginalized people going to practice? Voodoo? Shari'a? Talmudic? Jungle? Is that collection of idiots at the WA supreme Court able to adjudicate under such conditions? Mediocracy, ARISE!! Be all you can be...

In a related article, the AMA is considering abolishing the 3rd year of med school for those marginalized communities aspiring to become M.D.'s. It's not fair for these students to have to wait another year to get to work. This will give those students the opportunity to get working sooner.

Unbelievable. Minorities are too stupid to pass the Bar, in their racist view, so we give them a pass no competence required and admit without passing the Bar Exam. Good luck Washington State Khama will bite you where it hurts the most.

Certain jurisdictions, notably DC, have been dumbing down their bar exams for years. Mostly so certain "demographics" could pass it and go on to government legal jobs. I won't name names, but don't have to. BTW, Hillary Clinton flunked it. LOL.

This is not really news. There was no Washington bar exam at all in 2020, because of Covid restrictions. The Bar Examiners just declared that anyone who had graduated from law school could practice law. Anyone can imagine the anger of lawyers licensed before 2020. I used to tell people that I had birthed a nine-pound child completely unmedicated, and I had taken the Washington bar exam, and altogether I would rather have another baby than to take another bar exam. A few years ago, we had Tara Simmons, a convicted felon, appealing her "lack of fitness" ruling by the Bar to the State Supreme Court, where she got a pass. Simmons had already lost her nursing license. As a registered nurse, she was convicted of dealing drugs with an enhancement to the sentence for committing the drug crime while in the possession of an unregistered firearm. Simmons is now in the state legislature, as a representative from my home county. When you hire a lawyer in Washington, take a look at the bar number. The lower the bar number, the longer the lawyer has been licensed.

Hey, why don’t democrats just fast track minorities right to the bench. After all, they are in their opinion, all ready to dispense Justice, democrat justice. All that is needed is an aggrieved justice warrior in a black robe and you have democrat justice at its finest. Every law student in this country should balk at this and if they had any integrity, they would. But we know this generation loves participation trophies so they will not make a peep. The purpose of law school is to give the student a vigorous and intense immersion in the Constitution and law. Passing the bar was a point of pride, a rite of passage into a career that at one time, had the respect of most Americans. Now, it is going to be a continuation of legal scholars like Leticia James, Fani Willis, Nathan Wade, Alvin Bragg, Judge Engoron and the law will be dumbed down to suit the purposes of the democrat party which is Justice for me and not thee.

Judge Allows Trump And Co-Defendants To

Judge Scott McAfee ruled Wednesday that former President Donald Trump and eight other co-defendants can seek review of his decision not to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. McAfee granted the certificate of immediate review sought by defendants, finding it “of such importance to the case that immediate review should be had.” The decision means defendants can appeal McAfee’s decision, which allowed Willis to stay on the case against Trump after special prosecutor Nathan Wade stepped down, despite finding an “appearance of impropriety” in their actions.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed a Texas law to take effect that enables state law enforcement to arrest people they suspect are illegally entering the United States from Mexico. The three liberal justices publicly dissented from the court’s order clearing the way for the controversial statute, SB4. The order is not a final decision, and the case could return to the high court. The Biden administration had urged the justices to block the law, passed by Texas’s Republican-controlled legislature last year, asserting it is an “unprecedented intrusion into federal immigration enforcement.”

The State of Texas is terminating a massive $8.5 billion investment with trillion-dollar asset manager BlackRock over the state's determination that the firm is engaged in a boycott of energy companies. In an announcement first shared with FOX Business, Texas State Board of Education Chairman Aaron Kinsey said the so-called Texas Permanent School Fund (PSF) had delivered a notice to BlackRock on Tuesday, informing the New York City-based firm of the action. According to Kinsey, the move was made in accordance with a 2021 state law that seeks to distance the state and its large public purse from financial institutions boycotting the oil and gas sector.

“Marriage fundamentalism” advances “white supremacy,” according to a George Mason University professor. “I theorize that marriage fundamentalism, like structural racism, is a key structuring element of White heteropatriarchal supremacy,” Professor Bethany Letiecq wrote in the Journal of Marriage and Family. (snip) Letiecq employs “critical family theorizing…to delineate an overarching orientation to structural oppression and unequal power relations that advantages [white heteropatriarchal nuclear families] and marginalizes others as a function of marriage fundamentalism.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's family has denounced an award in her name being given to Elon Musk and Rupert Murdoch, among others. The Opperman Foundation has since 2020 bestowed the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Leadership Award to extraordinary people. Actor Sylvester Stallone, financier Michael Milken, and fashion icon Martha Stewart will receive the award this year along with Musk and Murdoch. Ginsburg, the legendary late Supreme Court justice, consistently supported progressive positions during her 27 years on the bench. Her family lashed out at the foundation's choices as 'an affront to the memory of our mother and grandmother', without singling out the two conservative billionaires.

The Biden administration is trying to make U.S. taxpayers fund abortions by leaving out the Hyde Amendment from the Fiscal Year 2025 budget released this week. The move marks the fourth year in a row President Joe Biden’s Office of Management and Budget has purposefully left out the Hyde Amendment, a provision that has been part of federal appropriations for decades and prevents direct taxpayer funding of abortion through programs like Medicaid. Republicans have foiled past attempts to remove the Hyde Amendment from the budget.

An appellate court paused the Biden administration’s corporate emissions disclosure rule on Friday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted Liberty Energy’s request for an administrative stay against the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) corporate climate risk and emissions disclosure rule, according to a court filing. The regulation requires medium-sized and large public corporations to disclose climate change-related risks and data on the emissions created directly by their businesses in financial reports.

This ruling came about in the case of Heriberto Carbajal-Flores, who faced charges under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(5), a federal statute that prohibits noncitizens without legal status in the U.S. from “possess[ing] in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.” Carbajal-Flores, who has been living in the United States illegally, was charged

The Biden administration finalized a rule on Wednesday that’s expected to make a significant amount of the new car market electric or hybrid. An administration official told reporters Tuesday that under the new rule, 56 percent of the new vehicles on the market in 2032 could be battery electric, while an additional 13 percent could be plug-in hybrids. That’s up from a collective 16 percent of sales being electric and hybrid cars last year. The rule is a cornerstone of the Biden administration’s climate agenda, as the cars and other light-duty vehicles it regulates currently make up about 17 percent of U.S. planet-warming emissions. The rule also regulates medium-duty vehicles. But

A conservative fund manager has pulled investments from Tyson Foods, saying the meat and poultry giant has alienated its consumers by laying off Americans workers and hiring 42,000 asylum seekers. Bill Flaig, CEO and co-founder of the $79 million American Conservative Values Fund (ACVF), told that he has divested from Tyson and won't buy any more stock in the company. Angry consumers are boycotting Tyson over revelations that the company is shuttering plants and laying off workers while hiring tens of thousands of asylum seekers — and even hiring lawyers for its new recruits.

A new capital would signify a new beginning for the nation. Everyone who has seen the play Hamilton knows that the nation’s capital was moved to the present site in the District of Columbia due to a dinner-table bargain in 1790 between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton needed Jefferson’s support in Congress to win approval for federal assumption of revolutionary war debts; in return, Jefferson wanted Hamilton’s support in moving the capital from New York City to a location nearer to the population and geographical center of the country, later carved out between the states of Maryland and Virginia.

An Orlando elected official allegedly took control of a 96-year-old woman’s finances and spent more than $100,000 of the nonagenarian’s money on a facelift, Miami hotel room for New Year’s Eve and other personal expenses, according to recently filed court documents. Orlando City Commissioner Regina Hill also allegedly used the six-figure sum on dental surgery, pricey perfume and clothes, and multiple intravenous vitamin infusions, according to reports. The spending spree came after Hill met the senior citizen in March 2021 and retained power of attorney over the 96-year-old the next month, the Orlando Sentinel reported, citing an Florida Department of Law Enforcement affidavit.

Yesterday we learned the shocking news from Donald Trump's legal team that he has thus far been unable to raise the ludicrous sum of $454 million to post a bond in his civil "fraud" trial in New York City. Under the terms of the latest round of lawfare being waged against him by partisan NY Attorney General Letitia James, Trump is supposed to put up the bond in cash and can not use the value of his properties to cover the requirement while he appeals the ruling. Trump's team reportedly approached multiple financial firms, but none were willing to put up the cash against the value of

"Outlaw your car" sounds like such an outrageous phrase, and technically speaking, it isn't true — but only barely. What practical difference is there between outlawing something, and regulating it out of existence? That's exactly what the EPA intends to do this week with strict new rules going forward against gas- and diesel-powered cars and light trucks. Expected as soon as Wednesday, the Biden EPA "is poised to finalize emissions rules that will effectively require a certain percentage — as much as two-thirds by 2032 — of new cars to be all-electric," according to Inside EVs. Politico sells the expected rule as one that would "tackle the nation’s biggest source

On Thursday, March 21, one of the Democratic party’s most accomplished campaign consultants will die. In a sense, Hal Malchow has been planning for this day ever since 1987, when a genetic marker test revealed he was likely to develop Alzheimer’s. At the time, he was barely 35 years old, a hustling political operative who had recently come off managing Al Gore’s first Senate campaign while overcome with worry about his mother’s early descent into dementia. (Around her 50th birthday, she was discovered wandering lost in a parking lot in the Mississippi town where she had lived her whole life.) After his mother’s untimely death, in 1990,
