  • Trump’s Voter Fraud Investigation Is A Mess, But It’s Still Frightening

    States are rebelling, a commissioner resigned and the panel is facing legal scrutiny. When the 10 members of President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission On Election Integrity met each other for the first time during a June 28 conference call, Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), the panel’s leaders, made it clear they wanted the committee’s work to be unbiased. That same day, Kobach sent a letter to all 50 states, requesting any “publicly available” information on voters, including highly sensitive information such as their voting history, information regarding felony convictions and the last...

    On Friday night's edition of HBO's Real Time, host Bill Maher expressed his concern of a permanent Republican majority. Maher noted that Trump has the power of incumbency, has Republican state legislatures behind him, has the ability to nominate at least two Supreme Court Justices, and the backing of FOX News, Breitbart, and Drudge. He also warned that Trump "hasn't even played his war card yet," and "could start a war and get a lot of support" from that.

    Besides the fact that Republicans historically have been more reliable midterm voters, Democrats may have another problem in 2018: Trump isn't the disaster for his party that so many had assumed. An L.A. Times front-pager by Cathleen Decker points to Dems' string of special-election losses this year: "Trump is so distinctive a politician that it's hard to persuade voters that other Republican candidates are carbon copies of the president. Trump's outsized persona makes even those Republicans who share his views seem more moderate, an important attribute to swing voters." Why it matters: "[V]oters' complicated views of Trump may give Republicans...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) called Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas "the three horsemen of the apocalypse" on MSNBC on Monday as she decried President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning travel from six nations in the Middle East and North Africa. Hirono criticized the justices for wanting to lift the injunction against Trump's executive order, which the other six justices agreed to review. Hirono called the order a "Muslim ban," despite the fact that it does not affect about 88 percent of the world's Muslims. "This is like the three horsemen of the apocalypse,...

    Justice Anthony Kennedy, the man who so often determines the outcome of the most controversial Supreme Court cases, is himself the center of brewing speculation. Will he stay or will he go? The rumors have swirled for months and the 80-year-old justice has done nothing either personally or though intermediaries to set the record straight on whether he will step down.
  • The terrifying and terrible prospect of Justice Kennedy retiring

    Washington Post ^ | June 23, 2017 | Ruth Marcus
    The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a...

    Former President Barack Obama will return to the campaign trail this fall in an effort to stem a series of Democratic electoral losses, according to a report in the HuffPost. Obama is expected to campaign for Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, a rare decision for a former president. The decision shows that Democrats appear helpless without Obama, hoping that he will help them recapture the magic.

    Democrat Jon Ossoff finished behind Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s special House election on Tuesday night, but the real loser could turn out to be House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. While Pelosi is in no immediate danger of losing her House perch, she’s increasingly becoming the face of a period of Democratic stagnation that’s seen a once-mighty majority systematically deteriorate during her tenure. “I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Tex., bluntly told Politico. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost,...

    Party officials fear the potentially demoralizing effect of a defeat. SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Democrats are closer than they ever could have imagined to winning a House seat in the Republican suburbs of Atlanta, and dealing a resounding blow to Donald Trump. But they’re also gripped by anxiety about what happens if they fall short Tuesday. A loss in Georgia’s special election here could leave the party demoralized, with little to show for all the furious organizing, fundraising and spending in a handful of congressional special elections in the early months of the Trump administration. As a result, Democrats are...

    GOP congressional candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed a reporter the day before the U.S. House special election in Montana and still won by 6 percent. Democrats should take that as a harbinger of political doom on a par with meeting the weird sisters or receiving a visit from Hamlet’s father. You need no ghost to come from the grave to tell you that when your policies are 6 percent less popular than misdemeanor assault, you need new policies.But Democrats seem incapable of learning from elections. After losing the House, the Senate, the presidency, several governorships, and scores of state legislature seats over the past eight years,...
  • Fearing Trump's next move, liberals urge Supreme Court conservative Kennedy to stay

    06/01/2017 9:02:07 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 32 replies
    Liberal activists are urging U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative with whom they often disagree, to put off any thought of retirement, fearing President Donald Trump would replace him with a jurist further to the right. The liberal Democrats' keep-Kennedy campaign, being pursued publicly and privately, reflects how powerless they have become against the Republican president when it comes to high court vacancies since the Senate in April reduced the vote tally needed to confirm a Supreme Court nomination to 51 from 60. It also shows how big the stakes are for both sides in any decision that...

    U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Louisville, is becoming increasingly alarmed with the actions and words from President Donald Trump. Kentucky’s lone federally elected Democratic official, who is now the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee, summed up Trump’s presidency after a recent press conference in a word as “terrifying.” “It’s terrifying from a number of perspectives,” he said in an interview with Spectrum News on Monday. “One is he’s incoherent; President Trump literally cannot express a thought that is coherent. Secondly, he says things without any regard to the ramifications of them — all of these statements that involve foreign...

    President Trump's shocking victory in November and the tumultuous beginning of his presidency have shattered many assumptions about American politics. For many liberals and progressives, the weeks since Donald Trump’s inauguration have been filled with soul-searching and even confusion about their place in American politics. Trump’s flurry of executive orders, coming in quick succession on matters ranging from federal employment and immigration to reorganizing the National Security Council, have driven deep division within the Democratic party. The reaction to Trump’s action have pitted pragmatic, center-left politicians against protesting activists forming “The Resistance.” Many Democratic disagreements with Trump’s executive orders are...

    Liberals are panicking about the fact that President-elect Donald Trump will be able to fill four vacancies on the historically left-leaning Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals when he takes office later this month. Outgoing Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) called the vacancies a “judicial emergency,” according to Bay Area public radio station KQED, even though there are 29 judges on the court. The “emergency” is that Trump’s nominees might be able to make the court more conservative. The Ninth Circuit’s jurisdiction covers many West Coast states, and its decisions have often reflected the liberal political culture of California and other “left...
  • New York Times Gasps: Trump Likely to “Hinder Press as Conduit For Information”

    12/26/2016 1:04:50 PM PST · by kevcol · 100 replies
    NEW YORK TIMES:.....Mr. Trump’s unconventional, sometimes hostile, relationship with the news media and his penchant for communicating through unfiltered Twitter posts threaten to upend a decades-old Washington tradition that relies almost entirely on protocol. The result, reporters and editors say, could be a loss of transparency that would hinder the press’s role as a conduit for information to the people.
