  • Another Sasse Treatise on What Ails Us

    Law and Liberty ^ | DECEMBER 17, 2018| | Charlotte Allen
    ...Some of Sasse’s hostility to Trump stems from policy differences—especially on trade, where the senator seems to be an open-markets absolutist, Chinese mercantilism and technology piracy be damned. But it is Trump himself who primes the needle on Sasse’s delicately calibrated sense of virtuous nuance. In a seemingly endless succession of media interviews he has denounced the President as “creepy,” a “megalomaniac strongman,” and lacking in “core principles.” Sasse put his exquisitely agonized soul on its most vivid display this fall during the protracted hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh and Sasse are in fact near-clones,...

    GOP Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) said Wednesday night that he urged President Trump to nominate someone other than Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court earlier this year. "Although I've said many complimentary things about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his distinguished record … I will say that I urged the president back in June and early July to make a different choice before he announced this nomination," Sasse said during an emotional speech from the Senate floor centering on sexual assault.

    As political discord appears to grow every day on Capitol Hill, Republican Senator Ben Sasse told "CBS This Morning" that the country is headed toward a "deeper, darker tribal place." Sasse, author of the new book "Them: Why We Hate Each Other - and How to Heal" (St. Martin's Press) argues that politics is merely "filling a void" in Americans' lives amid a "hallowing out" of their sense of community. "I think politics are important but they're not the first thing, they're certainly not the only thing, and I think right now our politics are suffering because people are looking...

    Sasse went on to first praise the “#MeToo” movement as “really important,” saying that Ford “needed to be heard,” but he said that the investigation and lack of corroboration from 4 alleged witnesses led him to vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Behar tried to argue with Sasse claiming the people named simply “didn’t remember it” and were “probably drunk.”

    “I’m voting for confirmation because of the evidence and Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications. After spending more than 150 hours doing my homework, I completed my reading of the FBI’s seventh background investigation this morning. This broken and politicized process has further undermined public trust. Washington embarrassed itself for the last month, but it is clear that most Americans are yearning for more than tribal blood feuds.”

    The Nebraska Republican gave an emotional speech on the Senate floor before returning to business as usual Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) gave a little performance on the Senate floor last night. As Sasse and his colleagues waited to receive the FBI’s report on its investigation into the sexual assault claims made against Brett Kavanaugh, the Republican from Nebraska took to the podium to talk about how friends of his have been raped, how the #MeToo movement is “a good thing” and how President Trump’s mockery of Christine Blasey Ford earlier this week was unacceptable. “We all know that the president...

    (Senator Ben Sasse Schools the Senate Judiciary Committee on the role of the Judiciary in the American constitutional republic..) Sasse describes the “elegant and fair process” the Founders created, a system in which Congress makes law, the executive humbly enforces the law, and the judiciary applies “written laws to facts and cases that are actually before it.” And in this process the key question is “not what did Brett Kavanaugh think eleven years ago on some policy matter. The question before us is whether or not he has the temperament and the character to take his policy views and political...

    RUSH: John Solomon, Alison Spann had at TheHill.com: “A well-known women’s rights lawyer” Lisa Bloom, the daughter of Gloria Allred “sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 presidential race, according to documents and interviews.” Now, let’s be clear what this story says. The story says that Lisa Bloom “sought to arrange … for women who” would come forward and accuse Trump of sexual harassment, to be paid by either tabloid media or donors, in order to get...

    A women’s rights lawyer tried to solicit cash from donors and media outlets for women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, a new report said Friday. Attorney Lisa Bloom offered to sell the alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets and wanted to pocket a portion for herself as a commission, The Hill reported. She persuaded a donor to pay off one accuser’s mortgage and tried to get a fat six-figure payment for another woman who eventually declined to come forward even after she was offered as much as $750,000, the website reported, citing Bloom’s clients as sources. Bloom...

    Brian D. Hill formerly of USWGO alternative news had mailed out a letter to Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, a associate Justice who was appointed to the bench by U.S. President Donald John Trump in 2018. Brian had asked this Justice under the ‘rule of 4’ to consider his petition for writ of certiorari, and to drain the swamp as Donald Trump instructed people to do. I received three files from Brian’s mother, one containing a signed scanned document of the letter which was mailed to the Supreme Court in Washington, DC. The second document containing the typed version...

    (CNN)Sen. Susan Collins declined last week to back President Donald Trump for reelection, saying she would focus on her own race while suggesting that she only picked sides in 2016 because she was not on the ballot. "I was not up for reelection," the Maine Republican told reporters, referring to the 2016 race, when she publicly voiced her opposition to Trump's presidential campaign. "I didn't have my own race to worry about at that point." But a dozen years ago, as she was running for reelection, Collins endorsed Republican Sen. John McCain over then-Sen. Barack Obama. She served as a...

    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, through his counsel Beth Wilkinson, has asked for U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rehear his case against the immediate dismissal of the Michael Flynn prosecution. The Thursday petition for rehearing comes after a three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit granted Flynn’s petition for writ a mandamus on June 24, directing Sullivan to dismiss the case. “The panel majority granted the extraordinary writ of mandamus to prevent the district court from receiving adversarial briefing and argument on a pending motion. The opinion is couched as a fact-bound ruling based on...

    The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that President Trump is not immune from a subpoena over his financial and tax records to Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., -- and declined in a separate case to issue a definitive ruling on whether congressional committees can have access to Trump's financial records, throwing both issues back to lower courts. Vance had subpoenaed Trump's records as part of a criminal investigation into potential wrongdoing by the president and his organization. Multiple House committees had subpoenaed Trump's records ostensibly as part of an effort at oversight and to inform potential legislation. "President...

    The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a prosecutor’s demand for President Donald Trump’s tax returns as part of a criminal investigation that includes hush-money payments to women who claim they had affairs with Trump. The court ruled 7-2 in a case in which it heard arguments by telephone in May because of the coronavirus pandemic. The records are held by Trump’s longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, which has said it would comply with a court order. It probably will be at least several weeks before the court issues a formal judgment that would trigger the turnover of the records. The...

    In a major win for religious liberty, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 on Wednesday that employers with moral or religious objections would be exempt from the federal mandate that requires company health insurance to cover birth control. The case was a consolidation of The Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania and Trump v. Pennsylvania, both of which sought to alter the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA). While the bill itself had no requirements for contraceptive access being guaranteed, this became mandatory through interim final rules (IFRs). While Churches have always been exempt...

    The ruling was against the Soros-backed Alliance for Open Society International. The Supreme Court issued a ruling on Monday making it clear that a major front of progressive billionaire oligarch George Soros does not have 1st Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution. In the case of Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts ruled against 1st Amendment right for the Soros front. Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented against the majority while Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the...

    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. ... The spot characterizes Daines – who’s facing a...
