Mr. Dooley Had It Backwards
New York Sun, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 4/15/2018 11:21:37 AM

What would Mr. Dooley make of the latest alarum from the New York Times about how America’s state courts are under “partisan attack”? Mr. Dooley is the fictional bartender who famously proclaimed that “the Supreme Court follows the election returns.” The Times has been set off by what is happening in Wisconsin, Kansas, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Those are among the states where voters are so upset with judicial decisions that they’re taking to politics to curb the courts. Across the country, the Times warns in an editorial, “state judges are under increasing fire from lawmakers and outside groups angered by their rulings, their power, their tenure or simply their independence.”

The court failed to say there was proof of these emanations and penumbras, which are areas of partial illumination. It merely said that earlier cases “suggest” that “specific guarantees in the Bill of Rights have penumbras, formed by emanations from those guarantees.”

So stands the legal doctrine of precedence revealed
as a house cards built of politics and base animal desire
masquerading as the rule of law
which must be swept away completely.

Wall Street, big business start
backing Mitt Romney’s Senate
bid as GOP establishment seeks
stronger leadership in Congress
CNBC, by Brian Schwartz    Original Article

Major names on Wall Street and in the Republican establishment are buying into Mitt Romney´s run for Senate, particularly as Republican lawmakers are looking to him as a future leader within a congressional caucus that is struggling to find its identity. According to first-quarter filings, Romney has been quietly receiving the financial backing of some of the most powerful names and donors in Republican circles, such as former Goldman Sachs CEO and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. The early contributions are not necessarily big, but they indicate a coordinated effort to push the former Massachusetts governor and presidential

The Man Who Paved the Way

There is a kind of modernity to the 19th-century story of New York archbishop John Hughes, in terms of three issues we still have cause to ponder in the United States: namely, the nature of community, the utility of any form of identity politics, and our national embrace of — and, in some quarters now, new skepticism about — multiple cultural identities. Hughes gave thought to the forces that were necessary to forge a tight-knit community, and his answers, if dangerous in our own day, seemed more reasonable to him. He did not share Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick’s gentleness when

Three Californias may be coming soon

Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn´t know it all. His first attempt to divide California into six states made very little sense. So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject. The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece. This could work. When California was admitted to the union in 1850 it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. That´s why California´s county lines are so screwy. Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people. Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the

The Trials and Tribulations

In today´s public dialogue, there´s a lot of talk back and forth over the transgender issue. And why not? Transgenderism has been made into a cause celebre by the cultural elite. Many, myself included, view this as part of the ongoing effort by the Left to separate America from God and tradition. For that reason, it is worthwhile to delve a little deeper into the issue than what is normally provided by what is claimed by transgender people themselves.

New Twists Emerge in Leadership
Race to Replace Paul Ryan
Roll Call, by Lindsey McPherson    Original Article

Two twists emerged Friday in the leadership race to replace retiring Speaker Paul D. Ryan. House Freedom Caucus founding member Jim Jordan said he’d consider a run while Ryan endorsed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “There is no speaker’s race right now,” Jordan told reporters. “Paul Ryan is the speaker. If and when there is, I’ve been urged by colleagues to consider that and I am definitely open to that. Right now though the focus has got to be on the next six months, us keeping the majority.” Jordan is a tactical politician. His move is not about actually believing he could win

GOP devotes $250M to
midterm strategy: Keep House majority
Trucker, by AP Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 4/15/2018 9:51:00     Post Reply
The Republican National Committee has committed $250 million to a midterm election strategy that has one goal above all else: Preserve the party´s House majority for the rest of President Donald Trump´s first term.Facing the prospect of a blue wave this fall, the White House´s political arm is devoting unprecedented resources to building an army of paid staff and trained volunteers across more than two dozen states. The RNC is taking the fight to Senate Democrats in Republican-leaning states, but much of the national GOP´s resources are focused on protecting Republican-held House seats in states including Florida, California and New

Paul Ryan was waiting
for the next Ronald Reagan.
He got President Trump

Long before he became speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan had a simple dream: to play Jack Kemp to a future Republican president’s Ronald Reagan. In a cruel twist of fate, Ryan instead had to reprise Kemp’s role with President Trump. Kemp, Ryan’s idol, helped craft the tax cut that eventually became the centerpiece of Reagan’s supply-side economic agenda. From his early years representing a Wisconsin swing district in Congress, Ryan was unveiling sweeping budget and reform plans he hoped would someday become law.

Top GOP super PAC urges
donors to step up direct support

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in

Eleven Republicans stepped forward before a Thursday evening filing deadline to challenge former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in the Utah Senate race, including a state lawmaker who says an "establishment insider" can´t fix problems in Washington. Many of the candidates acknowledge the David-vs-Goliath nature of challenging the famous and popular Romney, but they say someone needs to keep the race to replace Republican Orrin Hatch from becoming a "coronation.” "I think he's just expecting to run away with this thing,"

Waters said, “The president calling Comey a liar is laughable. The president is the biggest liar in the universe. The president accusing Comey of having leaked classified information — well, look what the president has done. He gave classified information to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister right in the White House, and it certainly made our ally, Israel, very upset that he had done that.

And I think he deserves to be fired. His word can never again be trusted,” Mr. Connolly said, calling the revelation at a court hearing earlier Monday “a big stain on Hannity

When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory. Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them. “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms
