Gorsuch Confirmation Presents
Democrats With 2 Difficult Paths

New York Times, by Carl Hulse

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/19/2017 9:58:26 PM

WASHINGTON — When it comes to the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, Senate Democrats appear to have two options: Get out of the way or get run over. Senate Republicans’ enthusiastic backing of President Trump’s nominee ensures majority support even before the confirmation hearing begins Monday. But the Republicans also hope that enough Democrats are won over by Judge Gorsuch — or recognize the inevitability of his confirmation — that they join in efforts to head off an explosive showdown over a filibuster. Should Democrats ultimately deny the judge the necessary backing to clear the way for

Comments:
Dems would be especially stupid to stonewall Gorsuch. But then again, when are they ever reasonable?

dems will be true to their nature as obstructionist morons but Gorsuch will be confirmed.

I hope some of the dems overreach so spectacularly that they wound their party even more.

Obviously, Democrats being in full self destruct mode, will choose to filibuster. You simply can not make this stuff up. They can´t stop themselves. It as if they were chained to their DNA, like weaver birds building a complex nest out of genetic memory. Personally I do not care. I love watching our enemies self immolate. But, I can tell you, having such an insane half of our country is not healthy for us together.

If you think they are going to drag their feet on this confirmation, just wait till a liberal member of the court needs replacing and President Trump confronts them with another Judge cut from the Gorsuch mold. Now that´s gonna´ be fun to experience.

Democrats are at no risk in obstructing everything at every turn. Republicans, on the other hand, act like the world will end if they entertain any action not endorsed by everyone, everywhere. Hence, Democrats always win, and I am no longer a registered Republican.

ST. LOUIS - The night after a 7-Eleven employee found herself in a fatal early morning shootout with an armed robber Monday, a worker in his first day on the job at the same store swore he would never work the wee hours there. “I want to feel safe,” Davon Dodson said. “I let them (the 7-Eleven operators) know I would never work overnight. No way.” The female worker involved in the shootout had stepped out of the store at 509 Bates Street for a smoke break when an armed man tried to rob her about 3:50 a.m., according to police.

A new survey of students at Dartmouth College found that those who identified as Democrats are the least tolerant on campus. In the campus-wide field survey, students of all political stripes were asked how comfortable they would be about living with a roommate who holds opposing political views. Of the 432 students surveyed, only 39 percent of students who identified as Democrats said they would feel comfortable living with a Republican, 16 percent said they felt neutral about the proposed arrangement, while 45 percent, a plurality, said they felt uncomfortable. A majority of students who identified as Republicans (69 percent)

Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme has died of esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease, according to published reports. He was 73 years old. Demme is best known for directing “The Silence of the Lambs,” the 1991 horror-thriller that was a box office smash and a critical triumph. The story of an FBI analyst (Jodie Foster) who uses a charismatic serial killer (Anthony Hopkins) to track a murderer became only the third film in history to win Academy Awards in all the top five categories ( picture, actor, actress, director, and adapted screenplay), joining the ranks of “It Happened One Night” and

U.S. equities rose sharply on Tuesday as solid quarterly reports from several large-cap companies rolled through. The Nasdaq composite jumped about 0.7 percent, sending the index above 6,000 for this first time ever.

It´s expensive to live in San Francisco — even if you make six figures. In an article published earlier this year, The Guardian reported on an anonymous Twitter employee in his 40s who says that, even on a $160,000 annual salary, he´s barely scraping by in Silicon Valley. "I didn´t become a software engineer to be trying to make ends meet," he told The Guardian. The employee´s biggest expense is the $3,000 monthly rent he pays on a two-bedroom house where he lives with his wife and two kids, which he describes as "ultra cheap." "Families are priced out of

New research suggests a large amount of methane was released in the Arctic Ocean during a period of warming 110 million years ago and the methane "burp" points to the possibility of a similar release in today´s warming conditions. The discovery happened in the remote High Arctic, on Ellef Ringnes Island, about 500 kilometres north of Resolute, Nunavut. During the Cretaceous period, 55 million years before the dinosaurs disappeared, the island was deep underwater. Suddenly, from under the mud, bubbles of methane began to emerge as frozen deposits began to thaw. The bubbles left traces in the form of over 130 mounds that

A controversial federal judge thinks firing squads and guillotines should come back in style as the debate over executions in Arkansas rages on. Ninth Circuit Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski, in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” set to air Sunday, said conducting lethal injections is a sham that masks that fact that people are getting killed. “The use of lethal injection is the way of lying to ourselves, to make it look like executions are peaceful, benign ... like going to sleep,” said Kozinski, who isn’t involved in the Arkansas proceedings. “And they’re not. They’re brutal things.” So then

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.
