Senate Democrats blocking
Trump court picks

Washington Times, by Alex Swoyer

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/4/2017 8:48:45 PM

Senate Democrats are turning to procedural tactics to delay confirmation of President Trump’s appeals court picks, and conservative groups are firing back with a new ad in Michigan trying to force two Democrats to clear a path for one embattled nominee. (Snip) The senators are flexing the chamber’s “blue slip” tradition, which gives individual lawmakers an exceptional amount of say in judges from their home state. Under the tradition, if both home-state senators don’t return their blue slips, signaling acceptance, Senate leaders will hold off on action on that pick. Neither Ms. Stabenow nor Mr. Peters have returned their

Comments:
It seems that Congress has more "delaying tactics" that have an adverse effect on our ability to have judges appointed by the current elected president. We were lucky to holdout till Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed. But holding out on Appeals Court nominees that oversee the cases before the Supreme Court seems petty when mostly activist ones seem to get through the process.

The "Blue-Slip" tradition is an anachronism that should be abolished the way the Senate changed the SCOTUS nomination process.

Suspend the ´blue slip´ procedure for 18 months. The democrats will get the message.
And we´ll get judges appointed.

It´s time for a new policy.

Senators will return a "blue slip" within (7) seven working days unless they can provide proof of unsuitability of the judge in question for promotion. Acceptable proof must be one of two options:

1) Historical record of more than 50% of rulings being overturned on appeal.

OR

2) Recommendation of the state´s bar association that the judge not be promoted, concurred by 50% of the members of the bar.

No other objections shall apply, no extensions to the (7) seven day time limit allowed.

I believe that the Constitution says something like the "Senate" to "advise and consent" to judicial nominations. NOT just two senators. For allowing that to happen is simply not acceptable. The entire country should rise up in arms for this to be allowed. Put pressure on the entire senate to put a stop of it.

Let´s not be hypocritical about blocking confirmation votes for political reasons, when the GOP blocked confirmation of Obie´s nominee for Justice Scalia´s vacant seat, betting that a Republican victory in November would allow a Republican President to make that nomination, instead.

The blocking of the Scalia replacement by McConnell (the only good thing he has ever done) was just using the Democrats´ standard of not replacing a Supreme when an election was pending. I think their time frame was ONE YEAR. Scalia passed in February with an election coming in November, so the time fram was even shorter. So, for once Republicans stuck it right back to the Dems.

As to playing patty cake with this blue slip tradition, I agree with poster 6 give them a week to come up with a substantial reason not to vote and after that, Republicans grow a pair and just vote. Oh and if Snow, McCain, Makowski and other Pubbies vote against Republican interests, they should be primaried if they are coming up for re-election or the subject of a re-call if they have been recently elected.

This is war and we need to fight it to win. Keeping a tradition for the sake of the tradition or appearing gentlemanly doesn´t win battles. Take no prisoners.

San Francisco - Russian intelligence agents attempted to spy on President Emmanuel Macron´s election campaign earlier this year by creating phony Facebook personas, according to a U.S. congressman and two other people briefed on the effort.

Conservatives failed in their bid Wednesday to punish the Congressional Budget Office for its grim evaluations of GOP health care proposals, with the House rejecting two different efforts to strip funding from the nonpartisan agency. Both Democratic and Republican leaders had opposed the efforts to spank the CBO, saying that Congress needs an independent auditor to evaluate spending, no matter how far off the estimates may turn out to be. Conservatives were upset earlier this year after the CBO projected that the GOP’s Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill would leave some 23 million fewer Americans with

Anthony Scaramucci finally has his White House job, but he still stands to profit from an ownership stake in his investment firm SkyBridge Capital. The incoming White House communications director earned $4.9 million from his ownership stake in SkyBridge in addition to more than $5 million in salary between Jan. 1, 2016, and the end of June, when he joined the Export-Import Bank, according to a financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics.

The European Union´s top court has ruled that the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas should remain on the 28-member bloc´s terrorism blacklist. The Court of Justice (ECJ) overturned a General Court ruling, which had said there was not enough evidence to keep travel bans and asset freezes on Hamas. The lower court had said in 2014 the listing was based on media reports, not decisions by "competent authorities". But the ECJ said such decisions were not needed to keep groups on the list. In Wednesday´s ruling, the Luxembourg-based ECJ said decisions by the competent authorities were only required for the initial listing of groups or

He said he had authority directly from Mr. Trump to do so. “You’re either going to stop leaking, or you’re going to get fired,” he said.

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator.

Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General.

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes.

Senator John McCain fired away at Donald Trump´s decision to ban transgender people from military service – and also for announcing a 180 degree turn on a complex issue via Twitter. The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement that the military should welcome capable people ´regardless of their gender identity.´ He made the statement hours after his own dramatic return to the Senate for an Obamacare repeal vote, after getting a brain cancer diagnosis. Trump praised the former Vietnam POW for his action, although he went after McCain´s time as a POW during the campaign.
