The D.C. Circuit is not the “Tenth Circuit.” The Tenth Circuit covers Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah.
Go ahead. Pack the courts with leftists. They can’t protect all of them.
The last thing I want to do is watch Chuck U. BTW, if I win Lotto/Powerball tonight I am out of NY so fast....
To rescue what little remains of our Constitution.
If Chucky wasn’t such an idiot and liar he’d be dangerous.
Don’t you just love career politicians, telling those who elected them what do do...
Schmukky Chucky Chumer,
What can you expect from a meshugana retard like this?
this guy Schumer....is such a...a...a democRAT.
I have turned the word democRAT into a pejorative. Now when I want to islut someone I say to them...you’re such a democRAT.
OK pubbies, grow a spine and some testicles. Remember Miguel Estrada, Priscilla Owen, Charles W. Pickering, Carolyn Kuhl, David W. McKeague, Henry Saad, Richard Allen Griffin, William H. Pryor, William Gerry Myers III and Janice Rogers Brown.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
If the “Rule Change” is a talking filibuster, rather than threatened filibuster being able to prevent up or down votes, whats the downside? this will hurt the dem’s when they inevitably fall below 50 Senators. Not sure they have the brass to do this, or they would have rammed it through the first day of the new Session.
WHen did Chuck Schumer become President?
Has anybody asked Schumer why Estrada, and countless of other picks by George W. Bush, weren’t allowed an up or down vote?
Of course. The Republicans never have a good, principled reason for anything they do. It's always just petty politics. Projection much?
I'd love to meet this guy in an alley.
“We Will Change the Rules to...”
1. Any conservative who can relocate is needed in Texas to help offset their plan of creating a permanent voting bloc of illegal aliens with that “One stroke of the pen, law of the land” crap. Once we lose Texas’ electoral votes, it’s over for all of us.
2. The Socialist propensity for “changing the rules” is why any further discussion of the “eligibility” of Cruz, Rubio, et al is ridiculous. That ship has left the harbor. That plane has taken off. (Insert favorite euphemism here). WHY on earth should we continue to “play by the rules” with our sanctimonious little heads held high while our mortal enemies are trying to slit our throat?
If the Democrats insist on packing the court with ideological partisans, then the next time conservatives have the presidency + the Senate, then they can do the same.
And, with majorities in both Houses + the Presidency and no filibuster, they can change the number of Scotus justices to suit their needs.
Economic regulation again appeared before the Supreme Court in the Gold Clause Cases. In his first week after taking office, Roosevelt closed the nation's banks, acting from fears that gold hoarding and international speculation posed a danger to the national monetary system. He based his actions on the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917. Congress quickly ratified Roosevelt's action with the Emergency Banking Act. A month later, the President issued Executive Order 6102, confiscating all gold coins, bullion, and certificates, requiring they be surrendered to the government by May 1, 1933 in exchange for currency. Congress also passed a joint resolution cancelling all gold clauses in public and private contracts, stating such clauses interfered with its power to regulate U.S. currency.
While the Roosevelt administration waited for the court to return its judgment, contingency plans were made for an unfavorable ruling. Ideas circulated within the White House to withdraw the right to sue the government to enforce gold clauses. Attorney General Cummings suggested the court should be immediately packed to ensure a favorable ruling. Roosevelt himself ordered the Treasury to manipulate the market to give the impression of turmoil, although Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau refused. Roosevelt also drew up executive orders to close all stock exchanges and prepared a radio address to the public.
On February 18, 1935, the Justices' decisions in all three cases were announced; all supported the government's position by a narrow 54 majority. Chief Justice Hughes wrote the opinion for each case, finding the government had plenary power to regulate money. As such, the abrogation of both private and public contractual gold clauses was within congressional reach when such clauses represented a threat to Congress's control of the monetary system. Speaking for the Court in the Perry case, Hughes's opinion was remarkable: in a judicial tongue-lashing not seen since Marbury v. Madison, Hughes chided Congress for an act which, while legal, was regarded as clearly immoral. However, Hughes ultimately found the plaintiff had no cause of action, and thus no standing to sue the government.
Dead Red Ted Kennedy is smiling in his grave.
Anyone that Chuck Schumer likes is probably unfit to sit on the bench.
