    There's something refreshingly honest about those Democrats revealing their bigotry in the halls of the United States Senate.They did so in questioning Amy Coney Barrett, a law professor at Notre Dame, a Catholic and woman of impeccable academic credentials, who has been nominated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, a Catholic town.Democratic U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein are applying a religious test to public office, something expressly forbidden by the Constitution. And by their questions to Barrett, they reveal themselves.This evokes a line of inquiry from an earlier age, one asked of leftists during the...

    Senate Democrats are planning an all-night talkathon Thursday over President Trump's pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Asked whether Democrats are planning to hold the floor all night, a spokeswoman for Sen. Tom Carper (Del.) — the top Democrat on the Environment and Public Works Committee — confirmed that "that's the plan." A spokesman for Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) directed questions to Carper's office but noted that Democrats aren't planning to yield back debate time. The late-night floor drama comes after senators voted to move forward with Scott Pruitt's nomination earlier Thursday in a 54-46 vote....

    Donald Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court is generally regarded as a supporter of the Second Amendment and gun rights. Vigorously praised by the National Rifle Association, Neil Gorsuch “has endorsed Second Amendment rights,” says FiveThirtyEight. However, there is one ruling that gives some conservatives concern, relating to when police can disarm those carrying firearms. Although Gorsuch’s positions on some hot button issues – like abortion – are less clear, his stances on the Second Amendment and guns are clearer. Trump chose Gorsuch, 49 – a Denver appellate judge who is known as an “originalist” – to replace the...

    Come January, Republicans will control all three branches of government, but with only 52 Republicans in the Senate. That will not give them the 60 needed to break a Democrat filibuster. Appearing on various Sunday talk shows, Schumer was asked if Senate Democrats will filibuster Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, whoever it may be. “I would hope first and foremost that President Trump nominates a mainstream nominee capable of getting bipartisan support,” Schumer told Fox News Sunday.“If he does, then we’ll give it just a very, very thorough vetting, but we won’t ipso facto say no. If it’s out of the...

Federal authorities, seeking to fight discrimination, have threatened school systems with a loss of federal funds if they fail to comply.

  • Best outcome is for 'healthy enough' Hillary to be the nominee and lose to Trump on Nov 8

    09/11/2016 6:11:43 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 60 replies
    Hillary is not liked by many voters, let along by many Democrat voters and won't have the same election turnout that Obama had in the 2012 election. She is slipping away in the polls and momentum appears to be on Trump's side. If for some reason Hillary isn't the nominee; then it's highly plausible that the Democrats will select someone that's more likable to the base and that may certainly energize peole, even those that don't like Hillary and are considering voting for Trump but may be swayed to go back to vote for Democrat ticket. Joe Biden is one...

    Members of the "Free the Delegates" movement are expected to file separate lawsuits in Arizona and Virginia on Friday, challenging the constitutional restraints on binding delegates to a candidate at next month's Republican National Convention. A source familiar with the forthcoming court filings claimed that some individuals seeking to unbind all 2,472 delegates in Cleveland next month are being intimidated by state-level GOP officials. In some cases, the source said, party leaders have threatened to revoke delegates' credentials to the national convention. Regina Thomson, who serves as executive director of Free the Delegates, could not be reached for further details....

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's closed-door meeting Tuesday with 900 top evangelical and social conservative leaders will be a time of questions and answers on issues such as the Supreme Court, sanctity of life and religious freedom, according to an organizer, who said a similar meeting is being discussed also with Trump's rival Hillary Clinton. "Of the more than 50,000 questions that came in, many of them focused on those three issues. Others focused on issues related to leadership, national security, and faith," Johnnie Moore, the spokesperson for My Faith Votes, a non-partisan organization focused on engaging the 25...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/1/2016 | David M. Drucker
    Donald Trump has started punishing top Republicans who don't back him, making clear they need to fall in line or face dire consequences. His loyalists and GOP voters angry with their party approve, but Republican insiders worry that it will make unity more difficult. The issue flared when Trump rebuked Gov. Susana Martinez, of New Mexico, at a recent campaign rally in Albuquerque. It was payback for Martinez criticizing Trump and refusing to share a stage with him. Republican officials were horrified that Trump would attack on the governor's home turf, a Democratic-leaning state that she has won twice. They...

    "[Hillary] Clinton can't just shut down the mines, she could shut down the whole country," Trump said of the Democratic contender Thursday. -- White House hopeful Donald Trump on Thursday finally crossed his party's finish line and secured the necessary delegate count to clinch the Republican presidential nomination, thanks to the state of North Dakota. Trump obtained delegate No. 1,237 in the Midwest state, meaning he will be the GOP's definitive candidate in the November general election to run against whomever the Democratic Party nominates -- almost certainly Hillary Clinton. Trump thanked North Dakota supporters for pushing him over the...

    As a 5th generation Republican and Lifelong Conservative the political events of recent years have been frustrating. None are more frustrating than this election cycle. We prayed and hoped for a real Conservative to counter the leftward pull of Obama. We wanted someone to pull the country to the right so we could possibly be, at least, center America, where we typically like to land in national politics. We have had several Conservative candidates this cycle, but many who have called themselves "Conservative" have coalesced behind a man who is the farthest thing from Conservative as is imaginable and why?...

    When Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump declared he was the “presumptive nominee” this week, much news coverage challenged him on it. A new survey reveals that GOP voters appear to agree with Mr. Trump: 89 percent now agree that the candidate will win the nomination, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday. The number of Republican voters who believe Mr. Trump will be the nominee has risen by 18 percentage points in less than a week. The poll analysis cites his sweeping primary victories in New York and five other states in recent days as deciding factors. “To show...
