Supreme Court sidesteps consideration
of partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin,
Maryland redistricting cases

Fox News, by Bill Mears

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/18/2018 11:49:24 AM

The Supreme Court on Monday took a pass on deciding the limits of partisan gerrymandering – or efforts by state legislatures to create voting maps most favorable to one political party. The justices dismissed separate lawsuits from Democratic Wisconsin voters and Republican Maryland voters, who challenged the congressional maps drawn by their legislatures. In the Wisconsin case, the court on narrow grounds said 12 Democratic voters who brought the suit lacked “standing” or jurisdiction to bring the legal action. In throwing the case back to the lower courts, the high court sidestepped the larger issue: endorsing a workable standard going

What do we pay these people for? Can´t they decide cases in ways that actually establish principles? Trump seems to be the only one doing any work in that city.

Use county boundaries. Use those as the voting districts. Counties don´t get redrawn every 10 years. And shouldn´t.

I suspect they also realized that there will be new maps being drawn after 2020 Census, and changing things now would be expensive and not prudent.

Never a problem when Democrats gerrymander, of course. I live in one of three adjacent spaghetti shaped districts, each 200-300 miles long and maybe 25-30 wide, drawn to protect three Democrats at the other end of the districts.

President Trump wants to update Air
Force One´s design. Here´s what it
could look like
USA Today, by Jessica Estepa    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/12/2018 9:58:35     Post Reply
Add Air Force One to the list of things President Donald Trump wants to improve while he´s in office. According to Axios, the president met with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg earlier this year to discuss using 747s as Air Force One. (The designation is used for whatever plane the president is on at the time, but it´s typically a Boeing VC-25.) The deal would reportedly cost $4 billion and likely wouldn´t lead to new planes available for use until 2021.But he´s not just leaning toward a different aircraft. He also reportedly wants a new look. Specifically, one that incorporates red, white

Trump wants a patriotic makeover
for Air Force One

Posted By: JoniTx- 7/12/2018 8:15:29     Post Reply
President Trump wants to scrap Air Force One’s signature baby blue and white paint job — for something that “looks more American,” according to reports Thursday. Trump thinks the blue adorning the presidential jet is a “Jackie Kennedy color” and wants the next iteration to instead feature red, white and blue, Axios reported. He also wants a bigger and more comfortable bed aboard future Air Force One planes — a pair of Boeing 747s that likely won’t actually go into service until 2021, by which time he may not be president anymore, according to the site. But the new paint

Rep. Trey Gowdy and FBI agent Peter Strzok got into a testy exchange Thursday over a series of anti-Trump texts Mr. Strzok sent his lover just before he started as lead investigator for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion probe. Mr. Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, questioned Mr. Strzok about his dismissal from Mr. Mueller’s team, saying the texts disparaging President Trump showed he was biased. But the embattled FBI agent challenged that, saying that he was let go because the text messages create the perception of bias, not that he was found to be biased. “It is not my understanding

President Trump on Thursday said United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May’s “soft” Brexit plan would “kill” any future trade deal between the U.S. and U.K. “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the U.K., so it will probably kill the deal,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with the conservative British newspaper paper, The Sun, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a close ally of the president´s. Murdoch also controls Fox News Network, the president´s favorite TV channel. In an exclusive interview with the outlet, Trump also lambasted

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) made disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok recite his most controversial text messages to his lover Lisa Page during Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing. Rep. Issa gave Strzok a printout of the texts to read during the heated and contentious hearing, in which the agent referred to Trump as a “douche” and a “disaster.” (Video) “I’m going to ask one series of questions very quickly if I could. You did a number of texts. All of the texts that were presented to us, as far as I know, came from your government phone, correct?” Rep. Issa

Peter Strzok´s first open hearing descended into shouting matches throughout the day with Republicans getting testy with the FBI agent over his anti-Trump´s texts while Strzok remained defiant and Democrats rose to his defense. The five-hour hearing was characterized by shouting matches, cross talk, threats, one lawmaker asking another if he was off his medication, and got so contentious at times that a member called it ´a new low in the United States Congress.´ There were several memorable moments, including one in the afternoon when Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert accused Strzok of wearing a ´smirk´ on his face throughout the

President Donald Trump has arrived at Blenheim Palace in grand style ahead of a gala dinner with US and UK business leaders. He was pictured arriving in Marine One in a tuxedo alongside First Lady Melania, who is wearing a floor-length, pleated buttercup yellow gown. Awkwardly grabbing Theresa May´s hand - in a replay of their White House meeting last year - Trump was treated to a fanfare welcome by the Welsh, Irish and Scots Guards´ bands.

Abdel showed up at his local Pennsylvania motor vehicle office to take his driver’s license test — and walked out having registered to vote, even though he is not a citizen. He said his command of English isn’t good and the computer system was unclear, but he somehow managed to sign up even though he knew he shouldn’t. Then there was Angelo, who figured he could vote because he joined the U.S. military, even though he wasn’t a citizen. He, too, signed up at the Pennsylvania motor vehicle bureau and registered as a Democrat. He then voted nearly every year

Here´s how CNN saw President Trump´s first day at the big NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium: "Trump outrages on the world stage, again." In something called "The Point," CNN said: "Trump´s comments at the NATO summit seemingly further alienated the United States from its allies. And this is only day one of his foreign trip." The piece also quoted former Secretary of State John Kerry saying, "The President set America back this morning. He is steadily destroying our reputation in the world." That´s the take of the mainstream media in America. It´s the exact same take the MSM had when

Reciprocity Is the Method

Critics of Donald Trump claim that there’s no rhyme or reason to his foreign policy. But if there is a consistency, it might be called reciprocity. Trump tries to force other countries to treat the U.S. as the U.S. treats them. In “don’t tread on me” style, he also warns enemies that any aggressive act will be replied to in kind. The underlying principle of Trump commercial reciprocity is that the United States is no longer powerful or wealthy enough to alone underwrite the security of the West. It can no longer assume sole enforcement of the rules and protocols

After a contentious exchange between Democrats and Republicans during a House Judiciary and Oversight Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte informed FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok he will be recalled later today and voted in contempt. The move comes after Strzok refused to answer a question from Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy.

Liberals claim to despise Trump voters for all sorts of reasons, but Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late great Frank Sinatra, made it clear on social media that she specifically hates Trump voters – and “especially the women” – for wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade. Hours before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court pick, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) tweeted out a dire warning that all of Trump’s potential nominees “want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions.” “We cannot go back to the days before Roe v. Wade,” she added.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has reportedly incurred a mountain of debt partly due to buying season tickets for the Washington Nationals. Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt on three credit cards and a personal loan in 2016, according to The Washington Post. The Nationals tickets were purchased for himself and friends over the past decade. White House spokesman Raj Shah told the paper that Kavanaugh has since paid off some of the debt while his friends paid him back for the tickets. Kavanaugh, who has not worked in the more lucrative private sector, showed assets between

There may not have been much new substance revealed during Peter Strzok’s testimony, as Jazz predicted, but everyone got to watch a lot of score-settling. Republicans in the hearing went after Strzok, Strzok went after them, Democrats and Republicans fought with and talked over each other, and voters got another reason to either cheer or boo depending on who was talking at the moment. [snip] How bad were the disconnects? No one seemed to agree how Strzok ended up at the table today, let alone what he could be asked.

Walking around New Orleans´ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, people are still angry at the impact of Hurricane Katrina and how unprepared the city was for the massive storm nearly 13 years on. But now some of their wrath is directed at Brad Pitt and his charity Make It Right. After the levees of the city´s industrial canal were breached, the Lower Ninth Ward of predominantly black and low-income families was decimated by the floods, with most houses swept away or left in ruins. Among the first to lend a helping hand was Pitt, who - along with his then wife Angelina Jolie - owned a house in New Orleans and set up the

Many liberal groups have expressed substantive concerns over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, on Thursday, the abortion advocacy group NARAL voiced a rather odd, personal objection to Kavanaugh: his first name. “We´ll be D****D if we´re going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” they wrote in a tweet.

It´s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign. The biggest of Mueller´s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either. Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign. It´s a small part, a very small part, of the overall charges

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed Lisa Page to appear in a closed-door interview Wednesday. But just like every other Deep State operative, Lisa Page believes she’s above the law. Page’s lawyer argued her client wasn’t given enough time to prepare for the interview and was not allowed to review requested documents at the FBI on Tuesday.
