Senate Democrats to centrist colleagues:
You’ll ‘have to answer to history’
on Supreme Court vote
Washington Examiner, by Laura Barrón-López    Original Article

Senate Democrats have to stay united if they want to stand a chance at blocking President Trump’s pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. To do that, the majority of the Democratic caucus will hammer Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as an anti-worker, pro-corporate judge who would likely cast a deciding vote against Affordable Care Act protections for people with pre-existing conditions and fail to provide a check on executive power. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said all Democrats have to do is to show voters the “true” Kavanaugh, "an anti-consumer zealot” who will be a “swing vote on the

There are policy areas that people of goodwill can disagree on. And then there´s the "You´re going to hell for this" stuff. Democrats and their union allies stealing from caregivers is a blatant example of the latter. Unions, SEIU, in particular, are vital parts of Dem organizing and fundraising infrastructure. When Dems siphon off more money for unions, they´re really putting more money in the pockets of their political organizations. And the contributions go to them too. But forcibly unionizing or seizing money from caregivers to unions is a particularly indefensible act. And now President Trump is putting a stop

Schumer Takes Questions From Press
On Trump´s Supreme Court Pick —
Gets Rekt On First Question
Daily Caller, by Benny Johnson    Original Article

Senator Chuck Schumer was asked a very awkward question in front of the Supreme Court Tuesday. The Democratic minority leader held a press conference in front of the Supreme Court to decry Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has received scorn from liberals who claim he will overturn Roe v. Wade and repeal Obamacare. Before taking questions, Schumer attacked conservative outlets The Heritage Foundation and The Federalist Society for vetting the SCOTUS candidates and said Kavanaugh would be harmful to women’s health in America. The first question asked by a reporter was incredible:

CNN: Too Many Catholics on

And now a word from the Party of Tolerance at CNN. Or to paraphrase Michelle Obama, "When they nominate a Supreme Court justice, we start talking like bigots." There´s only ever been one Catholic president and Catholics are a declining portion of the US population, but they´re holding a strong majority on the US Supreme Court. Actually with rising Hispanic immigration, it´s a rising demographic in the long term. And currently it´s 1 out of 5 adults. Probably a higher rate among children. When President Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Tuesday night, Kavanaugh described his Catholic faith and the

England fans have started gathering in Moscow ahead of the game against Croatia — and some have even worn waistcoats in tribute to Gareth Southgate. The Three Lions will take part in the biggest match in a generation on Wednesday night as they play in a World Cup semi-final for the first time since the 1990 edition of the tournament. A victory would see them face France in the final on Sunday, with England reaching that stage for the first time since 1966.

"When you attack a Black woman for speaking out about injustice, and when you call for ‘civility’ in the face of blatant racism, you invoke a long history of white supremacist power.” So reads a letter in defense of the call by Rep. Maxine Waters to harass Trump administration officials. “The concept of respect is culturally mediated; there is no single, objective standard,” it concludes. There are clear objective standards. They include not harassing the people you disagree with in their private lives. The only people who think that standard is “culturally mediated” are leftist thugs. But the lefty letter, which claims thousands of



Wrecking NATO

The Washington Post headline blared, "Trump is bent on wrecking NATO. Prepare for catastrophe." The Post fears that President Trump´s diplomacy will benefit Vladimir Putin to the detriment of American and European interests. European Council president Donald Tusk sniped, "Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don´t have that many." The NATO countries are, indeed, among America´s closest allies, but some of them appear more interested in oil, natural gas, and trade with Iran than in the Fulda Gap. Some of our "closest allies" have been working overtime to undermine America. If Mr. Trump is irritated with them, there

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is blistering at a proposed regulation that would prevent the union from siphoning fees from American workers’ Medicaid payments. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a proposed rule Tuesday that would require Medicaid payments to go directly to healthcare workers, ending a 2014 Obama-era rule that let third parties, such as unions and insurance companies, skim off a share of the paycheck before the worker saw any of it.

Democrats are racing to figure out how to handle Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose primary win over a longtime incumbent is set to shake up the party’s Washington establishment. Ocasio-Cortez’s shock victory over Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) made the 28-year-old an overnight sensation in the Big Apple and across the country, leading Democrats to bombard her with messages of congratulations and offers to cooperate in the future.“The entire spectrum of House Democrats, party leadership, [campaign] leadership, is trying to assess what she wants to do and how ready she is to play ball,” said one Democratic source.

Yale Law School students and faculty wrote and signed an open-letter to the dean Tuesday, criticizing Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and saying that “people will die if he is confirmed.”The authors and signers of the letter asked Yale Law School Dean Heather K. Gerken to “use your authority and platform to expose the stakes of this moment and the threat that Judge Kavanaugh poses.” “[P]eople will die if he is confirmed,” the letter reads, adding that he is a “threat to our democracy.” The crux of the letter is a disavowal for the potential overturning of Roe

I thought we had seen it all from radical feminists — and what we´ve seen is way, way more than anyone other than a gynecologist needs to see. Six years ago, Code Pink zealots traipsed across the fruited plain in giant female reproductive organ costumes demanding "respect" for women´s bodies and women´s abortion rights. They called themselves "dancing vaginas." Last January, militant femmes converged on the National Mall donning pink pussy hats, twirling nipple umbrellas, chanting, "Build a uterine wall!" and waving defiant posters that boasted "I DON´T REGRET MY ABORTION." Last fall, actress Martha Plimpton (of "Goonies" fame long, long ago) bragged

Anything for that Iran Deal: How Obama

In a major story that came and went, President Obama shut down a major drug operation run by Hezb´allah because he didn´t want to upset Iran´s mullahs and endanger his Iran Deal. Seems the Iran Deal was considerably more important to his "legacy" than any concern about drug-dealing, the opioid epidemic, or just the idea of putting terrorists who finance themselves through the global drug trade out of business. Politico did the story about how Obama shut down Project Cassandra, so it should have gotten attention, yet it didn´t. The whole thing recalls something security expert Rachel Ehrenfeld memorably told

Highlights: Cost: The estimated price tag for the entire project is $892 million. The ballpark itself is projected to cost $809 million and related infrastructure — including a parking garage and a pedestrian bridge over nearby Adamo Drive — is pegged at $83 million. The cost of the stadium includes one of its standout features, a translucent roof expected to cost almost $245 million. Capacity: The proposed ballpark will seat 28,216 people. Add in standing areas, and the total capacity will be 30,842. That would be the fewest seats of any Major League Baseball venue. By comparison, the latest configuration of Tropicana

SUNRISE — After multiple days of testimony, questioning and followup, the commission created to assess what led to the school shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High on Feb. 14 has ruled that shooter Nikolas Cruz’s involvement with a school-based discipline diversion program had no effect on his ability to buy weapons. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission’s discussion of the program known as PROMISE carried over from the commission’s last meeting in June. It was the first item on the agenda Tuesday so that the commission could move on to discussing other topics, including

President Donald Trump jovially greeted fellow world leaders on Wednesday afternoon at the opening ceremony of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization´s leader´s summit in Brussels. Trump smiled and posed for photos with Britain´s embattled Prime Minister Theresa May and affectionately conversed with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. The U.S. president stood front and center between May and Stoltenberg for the summit´s family portrait and a military flyover welcoming delegations from the organization´s 29 members nations to Belgium. A riled up Trump had clearly calmed down from a terse conversation at breakfast with Stoltenberg, whom he had dressed down during a

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination tees up another national debate about reproductive rights, is it too much to ask that abortion’s impact on the black population be part of the discussion? When the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in 1973, polling showed that blacks were less likely than whites to support abortion. Sixties-era civil rights activists like Fannie Lou Hamer and Whitney Young had denounced the procedure as a form of genocide. Jesse Jackson called abortion “murder” and once told a black newspaper in Chicago that “we used to look for death from the man in the blue

During a lecture at the Library of Conservatism in Germany, British philosopher Sir Roger Scruton described conservatism as a philosophy that recognizes and acknowledges that good things are easily destroyed but not easily created, such as law, peace, freedom, civility, the security of property and family life. He contends we depend on the cooperation of others for the aforementioned to exist because we have no means or ability to single handedly attain it. He states “the work of destruction is quick, easy and exhilarating.” “The work of creation is slow, laborious and dull.” For the African American, the journey from captivity

New reports suggest that social justice haven Oberlin College is facing a myriad of financial issues. Oberlin College in Ohio is notorious for its over-emphasis on social justice politics. It’s the alma mater of social justice icon Lena Dunham, who once published an art video that celebrated the “extinction of white men.” In 2015, Oberlin students accused their school of “cultural appropriation” over accuracy issues with certain cultural dishes that were offered in the dining hall. In December 2017, a local business claimed that Oberlin administrators slandered them by calling them racist for prosecuting alleged shoplifters. Now, Oberlin College is facing “negative”

On July 5, the U.S. Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania ordered that the federal government is permanently prohibited from forcing Geneva College, a Christian school in Pennsylvania, to pay for abortive services included in the Obamacare mandate. The federal court also found that former President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) “constitutes a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (‘RFRA’).” The court’s permanent injunction and declaratory relief order states that: “IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that defendants, their respective successors in office, their agents, officers, employees and all others in active concert or participation with them are hereby PERMANENTLY ENJOINED

Donald Trump could meet Boris Johnson during his visit to the UK, the US ambassador said today. Woody Johnson left the door open for the ´friends´ to get together despite the risk of it being seen as an humiliating snub to Theresa May. He said a meeting between Mr Trump and the former Foreign Secretary - who dramatically quit in protest at the PM´s Brexit plans this week - was not currently on the itinerary. But he added that ´the President makes his own schedule´. The comments came as it was announced that Mr Trump will get a guard of honour at Windsor Castle
