    CIRCUS MAXIMUS: U.S. SENATE 2020: Roman Senator Brutus would be amused to see the U.S. Senate today struggling to impeach a President using far more niceties than he did during Caesar’s reign.. In 44 BC when Caesar was Emperor and Dictator he was pushing hard to make himself a monarch; i.e. King. Some Roman Senators objected and decided to impeach him permanently. Brutus and others attacked Caesar and carved him up high, wide and continually. It was Rome’s day of the Long Knives.. Fast forward a couple thousand years to January 2020 and the U.S. Senate. The idea of carving...

    A marathon first day in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump erupted into a shouting match well after midnight early Wednesday morning, as Trump's legal team unloaded on Democratic impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. -- in an exchange that prompted a bleary-eyed Chief Justice John Roberts to sternly admonish both sides for misconduct in the chamber. Nadler began the historic spat by speaking in support of the eighth amendment of the day proposed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, after each of Schumer's previous attempted alterations to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's rules were rejected by a united...

    Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Friday that she's been working with "a fairly small group" of Republican senators to make sure witnesses can be called in President Donald Trump's impending Senate impeachment trial. "We should be completely open to calling witnesses," Collins told reporters in Bangor, Maine, the Bangor Daily News reported. She declined to say who or how many GOP lawmakers she's been working with, but said “I am hopeful that we can reach an agreement on how to proceed with the trial that will allow the opportunity for both the House and the president's counsel if they choose...

    A growing number of Democratic senators are saying it's time for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to submit the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate. "We are reaching a point where the articles of impeachment should be sent," Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., told reporters Wednesday. In an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday, Sen. Angus King, a Maine independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said he believes "it is time for the speaker to send" the articles. Meanwhile, Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., told CNN Tuesday in remarks confirmed by NBC News that he is "hoping"...

    Long-simmering tensions boiled over at Thursday night's 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate in Los Angeles, as a blunt one-on-one sparring match erupted between Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren over their fundraising -- just minutes after businessman Andrew Yang slammed Democrats' "obsession" with President Trump and impeachment. Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, began the fiery exchange by criticizing Buttigieg's recent lavish fundraiser in Napa, Calif., saying he was cavorting with "billionaires in wine caves" -- prompting Buttigieg to retort that Warren, a multimillionaire, was a populist in name only. "You know, according to Forbes magazine, I'm literally the only person...

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled in favor of the Trump administration by deciding federal officials can detain immigrants at any time for possible deportation after they have served their time in the U.S. for other crimes. The 5-4 decision reversed the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which said officials have to detain these immigrants immediately or they are exempt from ever being detained. Justice Samuel Alito delivered the majority opinion for the court, and he was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. Justices Steven Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor,...

    Coca-Cola is abandoning it’s eleven-year run of airing an ad during the Super Bowl this year, opting instead to run a commercial promoting “unity” as “our nation feels divided” just before the National Anthem. At up to $5.3 million per sixty-second spot, the soda giant has pulled out of airing an ad during the most expensive TV time of the year, but is not snubbing the game entirely, according to Variety. Coke-Cola will run an ad focusing on “diversity” in the half hour before kickoff. According to a statement, Coke celebrated its history of “unity and positivity.” “We have a...

    As soon as the 2018 election concluded, the 2020 cycle began. It never ends. It’s a perpetual war. And as we conclude 2018, the Democratic clown car is getting ready for its magical mystery tour across the country. It’ll be a race of who can out-left wing the other, who can call to officially abolish ICE first, who can raise taxes more, who can entangle business in the most in regulations, and who can be the most anti-Trump candidate. It’s going to be entertaining—annoying but entertaining. The first slate of candidates is reportedly Sens. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), Kamala Harris (D-CA),...

    An unprecedented 45 Democrats are jockeying for the party's nomination to challenge President Trump in 2020 — shattering the record for the number of candidates aspiring to be commander in chief. A review of potential contenders by the Washington Examiner reveals that up to 45 candidates could mount a serious bid to become leader of the free world. While many will undoubtedly decide against formally entering the race, most Democratic strategists expect at least two dozen to do so. Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, co-chairman of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, said recently that the 2020 presidential contest...

And things are getting serious very quickly - despite their 47-year age gap. If Caitlyn, 68, married 21-year-old transgender student Sophia, it would be her fourth marriage.
