Former Virginia governor and longtime Clinton toady Terry McAuliffe shifted into fear monger overdrive after President Trump announced he’s nominating Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Supreme Court justice. As a result the potential body count could be in the millions, according to a Democrat so slimy a hagfish once sued him for copyright infringement:
The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party.
Between tax cuts and repeal of Obama-era net neutrality regs along with Gorsuch and now Kavanaugh, the body count is now somewhere in the hundreds of millions if we add up all the Democrat predictions.
If Trump gets one or two more SCOTUS picks in the next few years, it’ll be the largest figurative death toll in human history.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, and Democrats are crapping themselves as President Trump prepares to nominate another justice:
Key Senate Democrats swiftly urged McConnell not to hold a vote on confirmation until after the midterms. They cited the Kentucky Republican’s decision to block then-President Barack Obama’s nominee for the seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death until after the 2016 presidential election. The gambit paid off, as Trump won the presidency and nominated the conservative Gorsuch, who has already had a meaningful effect on the court’s decisions.
“Our Republican colleagues in the Senate should follow the rule they set in 2016 — not to consider a Supreme Court justice in an election year,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday. “Senator McConnell would tell anyone who listened that the Senate had the right to advise and consent. And that was every bit as important as the president’s right to nominate.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, agreed with Schumer. The California Democrat said “there should be no consideration of a Supreme Court nominee until the American people have a chance to weigh in.”
At least two other Judiciary Committee Democrats, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Kamala Harris of California, said they concurred with their party’s leader. The panel holds hearings for judges and decides whether to recommend them to the full Senate. Republicans have an 11-10 edge on the committee and can put judges through along party lines.
Hmm, I don’t remember the Dems sweating so profusely when Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option which still allows judges to be approved via simple majority vote in the Senate. Remember this five years ago?
Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done.
The Clintons personally paid an IT worker from the State Department to set up and maintain their secret email server, and you just knew this spin was coming from her campaign:
The unusual arrangement helped Clinton retain personal control over the system that she used for her public and private duties and that has emerged as an issue for her campaign. But, according to the campaign official, it also ensured that taxpayer dollars were not spent on a private server that was shared by Clinton, her husband and their daughter as well as aides to the former president.
The Clintons running a pay-to-play “foreign donations to the Foundation for State Department favors” scheme through a secret server set up by a guy who is now pleading the Fifth was a service to the taxpayers! MSM, you have your marching orders!
Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is enjoying her brush with celebrity after charging six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, but she’s being very selective about which information her office wants made public.
About three weeks before Freddie Gray was chased from a West Baltimore corner by three Baltimore police officers — the start of a fatal encounter — the office of prosecutor Marilyn Mosby asked police to target the intersection with “enhanced” drug enforcement efforts, court documents show.
“State’s Attorney Mosby asked me to look into community concerns regarding drug dealing in the area of North Ave and Mount St,” Joshua Rosenblatt, division chief of Mosby’s Crime Strategies Unit, wrote in a March 17 email to a Western District police commander.
The email was disclosed for the first time Tuesday in a motion filed in Baltimore Circuit Court by defense attorneys for the six officers being prosecuted in Gray’s arrest and death. The attorneys said Mosby’s involvement in the police initiative means that she should be removed from the case.
One thing’s for sure: If that “rift” is going to be smoothed over, the president who meets almost weekly with race agitator Al Sharpton and who oversees a Justice Department that never met a police department that wasn’t loaded with racists and isn’t afraid to say it publicly is not the person to lead the charge.
Former NBA star Charles Barkley recently called Ferguson looters “scumbags,” praised police officers who work in black neighborhoods, and said he supports the decision made by the grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting.
During an interview on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia on Tuesday, the day after the Ferguson decision was announced, host Mike Missanelli asked Barkley about it and why “black America” doesn’t trust the ruling.
His response surprised some listeners.
“The true story came out from the grand jury testimony,” Barkley said, adding that he was made aware of “key forensic evidence, and several black witnesses that supported Officer Darren Wilson’s story…” He continued, “I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore. And, that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore, because they (the media) love this stuff, and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.”
He also called those who rioted after the decision was announced “scumbags,” and said “There is no excuse for people to be out there burning down people’s businesses, burning down police cars.”
“[W]e have to be really careful with the cops, because if it wasn’t for the cops we would be living in the Wild, Wild West in our neighborhoods,” he said. “We can’t pick out certain incidentals that don’t go our way and act like the cops are all bad…. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be if it wasn’t for the cops?”
That’s precisely what responsible government leaders should be saying in public loud and often — but there’s no chance in hell of Obama or Holder saying any such things. Never let a crisis go to waste. This was typical of how Obama and Holder operate: Monitor an incident with racial elements, wait for the “facts” to evolve until they fit a desired narrative, and then step in and “solve” that manufactured crisis.
I only needed to hear two words to know that Obama’s Ferguson “panel” was rigged — those two words were “Al” and “Sharpton.”
The incident happened around 9:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the Kroger at Highland and Poplar.
A store employee caught video of the attack.
A 25-year-old man said he was attacked by the group as he walked to his car. Two Kroger employees, 17 and 18, ran to help the man. Both were repeatedly hit in the head and face.
The teens told police pumpkins “in excess of 20 pounds” were thrown on their heads while they were on the ground.
Police say both teens lost consciousness.
Eventually, a security guard stopped the attack.
The media’s going well out of its way to avoid saying any aspect of the attack was racially motivated, but switch the races of the attackers and at least one of the victims and just imagine how this would have been reported.
You WON’T be seeing any of the above footage in subsequent Moms Demand Action ads coming out against citizens’ right to self-defense at Kroger:
SecDef Chuck Hagel attended the funeral of the highest ranking active member of the military to be killed since 1970, Maj. Gen. Harold Greene. In 2012, nobody from the White House attended the San Francisco memorial service for Chris Stevens, who was the first U.S. ambassador in 30 years assassinated on the job.
To repeat: As far as I can tell, nobody from the White House — as in “a direct representative of the president who works at the White House” — attended either of those funerals.
Three White House officials will attend Michael Brown’s funeral Monday on behalf of the Obama administration, a White House official told NBC News.
Assistant to the President and White House Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Marlon Marshall and Heather Foster, an advisor to the public engagement office will be at the ceremony for the unarmed teenager who was shot dead by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer on Aug. 9, sparking days of unrest in the St. Louis suburb.
Brown’s funeral will be at 10 a.m. local time at Friendly Temple Missionary Church in St. Louis.
The rapid progression from “illegal aliens” to “undocumented migrants” to “refugees” to “because Jesus” really is a thing to behold:
The man who heads the federal agency responsible for many of the 50,000 unaccompanied alien children from Central America who have entered the U.S. illegally in recent months told attendees at a conference on Tuesday that those working with refugees should look to Jesus Christ as a role model.
“Jesus was a refugee, and that’s a very good reminder to all of us,” Eskinder Negash, director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), said at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) 2014 Migration Conference in Washington, D.C.
It’s beyond comical how some who are constantly calling for “separation of church & state” are the first to invoke Jesus when doing so fits their wants.
Have you noticed that the Left usually presents their strongest (and usually only) defense of their version of “Christian values” when they’re in the midst of helping sell Democrat initiatives to fuck up the country? Otherwise it’s “keep your Jesus to yourself, pal!”
