    Video at link. (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), one of 22 Democrats seeking her party's presidential nomination, told MSNBC on Wednesday that Alabama's new abortion ban is "draconian and inhumane," and she called for "action" against Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch if they do not uphold Roe v. Wade. Both men are Trump appointees. Gillibrand said President Trump has deliberately selected "radical justices" to "undermine basic reproductive freedoms and civil rights" of women. "And I'm going to lift this up, and as President of the United States, I will not appoint any justice that does not...

    As you know if you've ever watched a TV show about lawyers, you should never ask a question if you don't already know the answer. You shouldn't be arrogant enough to assume you already know it, just because you really want to believe it's true. Don't get cocky. Don't hurt your own case. In other words, don't be the Senate Democrats. They're out of power right now, and until they start winning some elections again, all they can do is complain about being thwarted again and again. Whine, whine, whine: .@realDonaldTrump and the Republican-led Senate have aggressively pushed to reshape...
  • Bill Clinton says Kavanaugh fight was payback for Vince Foster

    05/06/2019 1:35:58 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 129 replies
    LAS VEGAS — Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh got what he deserved when he was accused in his confirmation hearing of sexual assault — because of his role in investigating the Clintons in the 1990s, former President Bill Clinton suggested. "He didn't have any problem making us put up with three years of Vince Foster nonsense that was a total charade," Clinton, 72, said Sunday during a joint appearance with his wife Hillary at the Park Theater in Las Vegas during the last stop in the 10-event "An Evening With the Clintons” speaking tour. A childhood friend of Bill Clinton,...

    A replacement has already been chosen to take over for White House counsel Don McGahn when he leaves that post in the fall, according to a Thursday morning tweet from President Trump. “I am very excited about the person who will be taking the place of Don McGahn as White House Councel!" Trump wrote. McGahn would be leaving the White House following the confirmation of his Supreme Court nomination, Brett Kavanaugh. Trump added that he does not credit McGahn with stopping him from firing special counsel Robert Mueller or Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "I liked Don, but he was NOT...
  • The unwitting Committee to Re-elect the President

    OC Register ^ | 21 Apr 2019 | Joel Kotkin
    Given his consistently poor approval ratings, and growing concern about the polarization that he has exacerbated, Democrats should have little trouble ousting President Trump next year. But instead, with a series of outlandish and often deeply unpopular proposals, they have morphed effectively into the Committee to Re-Elect the President. Democrats could succeed easily if they focused on basic middle class issues, such as health care and reforming the tax system, where popular opinion, including among working class whites, is largely on their side. Infrastructure spending, if they can somehow disassociate it from the usual pork-barreling, could also gain support, particularly...

    Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh captivated the attention of the nation and the world last fall. Now, Time magazine's annual list of the world's 100 most influential people has brought them into the spotlight again — with both receiving a coveted spot in the edition. Sen. Kamala Harris, a Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee who took part in the confirmation hearings, wrote a moving tribute for the magazine about Blasey Ford. "Her courage, in the face of those who wished to silence her, galvanized Americans," wrote Harris, who is also a 2020 presidential...

Full title: Here's How One Former Hillary Staffer Is Working To Shape The News Cycle Over Kavanaugh's 'Misconduct' Hillary Clinton's 2016 Press Secretary, Brian Fallon, is now Executive Director of Demand Justice, a liberal advocacy group.

Those who called for Kavanaugh's firing signed the petition "Mason For Survivors." Demand Justice is actively running ads targeting George Mason students, encouraging them to sign a petition that would “terminate AND void ALL...

    More than two dozen progressive groups are asking House Democrats to investigate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ’s confirmation process. “Senate Republicans made a mockery of their constitutional responsibility to provide ‘advice and consent’ on the president’s nomination of Justice Kavanaugh, and the American people deserve to know how and why the process was such a sham,” the groups wrote in a letter to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. “The public is just as entitled to a thorough review of Justice Kavanaugh’s record now as it was before he was elevated to the Supreme Court and to know...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said in a recent appearance that he does not think religious beliefs interfere with a judge’s job, and criticized attempts by Democrats to impose “religious tests” on judicial nominees. Thomas, in remarks last week that were first reported by The Daily Caller, was asked about the 2017 confirmation hearing of Amy Coney Barrett where Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told the Catholic: “The dogma lives loudly within you and that’s a concern.” He was asked if religious convictions should be taken into consideration when lawmakers were considering a judicial pick. “I thought we got away from...

    Students at George Mason University are advocating the termination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who is scheduled to teach a George Mason law class in England this summer. Kavanaugh is currently scheduled to teach the class “Creation of the Constitution” to George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School students in Runnymede, England, where the Magna Carta was signed over 804 years ago, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. Students on George Mason University’s Fairfax, Virginia, campus who say they are survivors of sexual assault are now banding together to protest Kavanaugh’s right to teach at George Mason. “As a survivor...

    A group of students and professors at George Mason University has been triggered by the school’s decision to bring on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a visiting law professor, saying the hire threatens their mental well-being. Kavanaugh, however, isn’t even slated to teach a course at the school’s Virginia campus, but rather one in Runnymede, England, where the Magna Carta was signed. "The hiring of Kavanaugh threatens the mental well-being of all survivors on this campus," one female student said at GMU's board meeting last week, The College Fix reports. "It is affecting my mental health knowing that an...

    It's amazing how similar middle-class and well-positioned African Americans are to white elites in their perspectives on US politics. They continue to play in the sandbox of respectability politics and civility, as if only since the election of Donald Trump as president has racial and socioeconomic progress been in jeopardy. Take Washington Post columnist Colbert I King's reaction to US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement last month.

    The U.S. Supreme Court refused Monday to hear an appeal to dismiss Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit against David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress. Ad Row 2 The decision means Planned Parenthood may continue its legal action against Daleiden and his undercover investigative group, which exposed the abortion chain’s aborted baby body parts trade. The abortion group has accused Daleiden of fraud and invasion of privacy, among other things, according to Reuters. The Washington Examiner reports more: The Center for Medical Progress argued that the Planned Parenthood lawsuits interfered with the organization’s right to free speech and that it violated...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) filed a procedural motion Thursday to set up a rules change in the Senate next week that will speed up votes to confirm President Trump’s nominees to federal district courts and sub-Cabinet-level executive branch positions. McConnell filed cloture — a motion to cut off dilatory debate — on a motion to proceed to Senate Resolution 50, which would dramatically reduce the amount of time Trump’s nominees have to spend on the floor and let Republicans confirm more of his picks. The resolution would reduce the amount of floor time that must elapse between when...

    National Review ^ | March 28, 2019 | James Lucas
    On Tuesday the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in two cases whose plaintiffs contend that legislative redistricting which disproportionately favors the political party in charge of the redistricting process is unconstitutional. These cases present the starkest possible test of whether the Court’s new, supposedly originalist five-justice majority will restore respect for the Constitution or follow previous SCOTUS majorities down the path of judicial imperialism. And so far, the oral arguments have raised concerns that newly appointed Justice Brett Kavanaugh may already be steering the court onto that path. Specifically, Justice Kavanaugh’s questions have suggested that proportional representation could be a...

    Last week, Americans United for Life filed a "friend of the court" brief on behalf of a group of 77 Members of Congress in the en banc Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, supporting Texas's decision to defund Planned Parenthood under its State Medicaid program. The case, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas v. Phillips, arose after Texas disqualified Planned Parenthood as a State Medicaid Provider when undercover videos revealed that Planned Parenthood was involved in illegal and unethical behavior concerning aborted fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood and some of its patients sued in federal court challenging the disqualification. A three-judge Fifth...
