  • What the Supreme Court’s rulings mean for the 2020 Census and Trump’s attempt to exclude the undocumented from the count

    10/18/2020 6:56:51 AM PDT · by Libloather · 34 replies
    The Supreme Court has cleared a path for the Trump administration to exclude undocumented immigrants from representation, potentially altering the balance of power in Congress for the next 10 years. The court Tuesday cut short the census count by two weeks, which census experts and civil rights advocates say risks producing a less accurate count. Then on Friday, the court said it would review President Trump’s efforts to omit unauthorized immigrants when apportioning congressional seats. That decision overturned a lower court’s order that had blocked the Commerce Department and Census Bureau from including information about the undocumented when they deliver...
  • NBC’s Stephanie Ruhle Filmed Promo Spots for Bank She Covers as Journalist: WashPost

    Integrity is apparently a myth with the journalists at NBC News. The network’s insufferable Business Correspondent Stephanie Ruhle was just exposed for filming promotional videos for a bank she covers. The Washington Post, which broke the story, wrote that Ruhle “doesn’t promote banks when she’s anchoring for the cable network. But on the Internet, it may be a different story.” In a September 22 clip produced and sponsored by JPMorgan Chase, Ruhle said: “‘Hey, this is Stephanie Ruhle, and I’m looking forward to my conversation with Chase, where we talk about life’s unpredictable moments and how important it is to...

    The Washington Post took a shot at making its own version of the 1619 Project for George Floyd. "Born with two strikes - How systemic racism shaped Floyd’s life and hobbled his ambition," the paper owned by the richest man in the world falsely claims. Floyd, you see, wanted to be a Supreme Court justice. But a racist country just kept arresting him for drugs, theft, and... armed robbery. But the Post does its best to dance around that by writing about anything and everything except Floyd's crimes. "Early in life, he wanted to be a Supreme Court justice. Then,...

    The far-left Washington Post buried the news one of the alleged plotters in the scheme to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) is a Black Lives Matter supporter. You have to trudge through more than a dozen paragraphs to find this: One of alleged plotters, 23-year-old Daniel Harris, attended a Black Lives Matter protest in June, telling the Oakland County Times he was upset about the killing of George Floyd and police violence. But-but-but I was told by the media, Joe Biden, and Whitmer all the plotters are right-wing, racist, militia men inspired by Donald Trump!!!

    In his first public event since contracting COVID-19, President Trump told several hundred mostly minority and vocal supporters at the White House that Blacks and Hispanics are rejecting the Democratic Party’s turn toward socialism and embracing his law-and-order message. “Black and Latino Americans are rejecting the radical socialist left, and they are embracing our pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-police … and pro-American agenda,” Mr. Trump said in an 18-minute address from a White House balcony overlooking the crowd on the South Lawn. The president said the members of Blexit, a group headed by conservative Black activist Candace Owens, understand that “to protect...

    It must be difficult to be on staff at The Washington Post -- or subscribe to it, or advertise with it – without feeling profound embarrassment. On June 25, the “WaPo” offered what its editors seem to have thought was a potent attack on President Trump. The piece was an “analysis” by Philip Bump titled, “Trump Keeps Claiming The Most Dangerous Cities In America Are Run By Democrats. They Aren’t.” But for the WAPO, the trouble is that this “debunking” actually confirmed President Trump’s June 24 observation that the most dangerous cities in America are, in fact, run by Democrat...

    The Washington Post reports that Amy Coney Barrett was infected by the Wuhan coronavirus this summer. It says Barrett’s infection has been confirmed by “three officials familiar with her diagnosis.” Judge Barrett has recovered from the virus. The Post’s report doesn’t say what her symptoms, if any, were. However, she is female, relatively young and slim, and seemingly in good general health. Thus, it’s unlikely that she was ever at serious risk from the infection.

    If a visitor from Mars observed press coverage of President Donald Trump Middle East peace negotiations, he would have heard an amazing tale about Donald Trump’s incompetence and futility of his efforts. The most experienced negotiator, John Kerry, declared in 2016 "There will be no separate peace between Israel and the Arab world…. No. No, no, and no." In April 2016 Harvard Business Review wrote, “The Donald Trump approach to negotiation would be not only ineffective but also disastrous.” In October 2019 The Atlantic posted an article “Trump’s Middle East Policy Is a Fraud.” Infamous for its foresight, especially when...

    For six months, the rules for how Americans can vote during the coronavirus pandemic have been locked in court battles while states across the country rushed to embrace mail ballots. Now, with just weeks to go before the Nov. 3 election, voting rights advocates and Democrats have advanced on key fronts in the legal war, scoring victories that make mail voting easier, ensure votes cast by mail are counted and protect the wide distribution of mail ballots in some states.

    Back in February of 2016, Amy Coney Barrett did an interview with CBS about filling Supreme Court vacancies. The interview was done shortly after Justice Antonin Scalia passed away and Democrats were pushing for Judge Merrick Garland to be confirmed. Democrats sliced the clip to make it sound as though Barrett was against filling a vacancy during a presidential election year: Here is Judge Amy Coney Barrett explaining why it’s wrong to fill a SCOTUS vacancy during a presidential election year. — Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) September 26, 2020 Even the Washington Post concluded that what she was saying was...

    Tens of thousands of people swarmed the Lincoln Memorial, all with one common goal—to pray for our nation. So, it was quite a surprise, when one of the very people to be lifted up on Saturday afternoon by a sea of Christians gathering together from across the country, slipped in just as the Washington Prayer March 2020 began: Appearing from stage right—catching everyone off guard—Vice President Mike Pence. And the vice president came to say one thing to the prayer warriors flanking the National Mall: “I just want to say ‘Thank you for your prayers,’” he said. “And the president...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that if she steps down now, President Obama would not be able to appoint an acceptable replacement. Ginsburg, who reiterated that she has no imminent plans to retire, told Elle that it would be next to impossible for the Senate to confirm a new justice to the court who she would approve of. "Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court," she...

    Trump spoke privately with McConnell on Friday night following the news of Ginsburg’s death, laying out his preferences for who should replace the liberal justice, according to several people familiar with the conversation. In the phone call, Trump said he liked Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and Barbara Lagoa of the 11th Circuit, according to two people briefed on the discussion. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose details of a private conversation.

    A former Democratic aide has reportedly left his post as director of public policy at Twitter to join former Vice President Joe Biden's transition team. Carlos Monje left Twitter's Washington, D.C. office Thursday, according to Politico, after helping to host a fundraiser for the Democratic nominee this week. The outlet reported that Monje has served on Biden's infrastructure policy committee, although it's unclear what his role will be on the transition team.

    Even as gun violence breaks records in New York City, Chicago, and Philly, the Democrats don’t have much to say about the epidemic of shootings or their pet cause, gun control. While activist Democrat prosecutors like Attorney General Letitia James have neglected to deal with the violence and are instead targeting the NRA, they aren’t really talking about gun control. Mass shootings are rarely mentioned anymore even though there are more of them than ever. A Washington D.C. mass shooting at a cookout last month that wounded 20 people was treated as another local crime story. And there are a...

    Concern is rising about what would happen if President Donald Trump loses the November election and refuses to concede, perhaps by claiming victory based on early returns before the mail-in ballots are counted or through some similar maneuver. Would his supporters in this "doomsday scenario" take to the streets and Trump refuse to leave office? These are real worries. But there's another one that looms almost as large and gets far less attention: Would Democrats and others on the left accept the presidential results as legitimate if Trump wins? There's reason to believe they might not - and there are...

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) signaled he would support a Congressional investigation of senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s personal email use during a Tuesday evening interview with CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump sent hundreds of emails from a personal email address that she shared with her husband and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner. Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Trump’s attorney Abbe Lowell, said the emails almost exclusively revolved around “logistics and scheduling concerning her family.”

    There is great confusion in the GOP ranks and the media about the likelihood of a third candidate running. Multiple sources confirm there are several groups with access to funding, in communication with one another, working on a third-party run. It is not, as commonly argued, all that difficult to get on ballots in most every state. “The process is complex but not hard,” says longtime GOP operative Rick Wilson, who is involved in such efforts. “All the steps are explicable, and the lawyers know how to get it home. Even in ballot access states due in May, there are...
