Kavanaugh coping mechanisms:
5 wild Dem schemes to
counter Trump´s SCOTUS win

Fox News, by Adam Shaw

After failing to block the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Democrats and allies in the media are shifting course to float a range of ideas -- some far-fetched -- to curb the rightward shift of the court. They range from packing the bench with more justices to overhauling the Constitution itself. Here´s a look at some of the strategies that have taken off in the opinion pages, social media-sphere and cable talk circuit. Packing the Court President Franklin Delano Roosevelt once famously threatened to expand the Supreme Court to as many as 15 justices after the court ruled against

FTA: Newsweek, meanwhile, noted Kavanaugh is the “fourth Supreme Court justice nominated by [a] president who didn’t win the popular vote” -- referring to Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch under Trump, and John Roberts and Samuel Alito, under former President George W. Bush.

Actually, they are the fifth and sixth - Ginsberg and Breyer were nominated by Bill Clinton who never won the popular vote. His first election he won with only 43% of the popular vote. The second was higher percentage, but still less than 50%.

Let´s see. Packing the court requires a Democrat President and a Democrat Senate. Constitutional change require 75% of the states to agree and the small states want no part of eliminating the Electoral College.

Impeachment requires some crime and 67% of the Senate to be Democrat.

The Mconnell Rule is really the Biden Rule!

Here´s a strategy for the Dems that they´ve used to good effect recently. They can get together and scream at the sky.

The lipsticked Puerto Rican is wrong again.
When the 1787 constitutional convention was held, the other states were concerned that Virginia, the largest state, with a large slave population, would dominated the proposed United States.
A compromise was reached, creating a bicameral congress, with one representing districts by population, the other with two senators each. And slaves were counted as 3/5 of a person in calculating Representatives. Those were limiting factors for Virginia.
The electoral college, as part of that debate, created seats based on representatives plus senators from each state.
I have to wonder if the lipsticked Puerto Rican ever went to class while at Boston university.f

Insane ideas 1-4 are just plain impossible from any even remotely sane look at the required votes in Congress and the State Legislatures. Impossible.

#5 will not happen either, McConnell has already told us about this. He said, when asked specifically about this situation, "when a President of the opposite party of Congress appoints a Supreme Court justice in a Presidential election year, it should be delayed until after the election." (my italics). Trump is not of the opposite party of Congress, so that option is CLOSED, unless they take both houses this November. That will not happen, I will bet $1000.

Too bad the reporters don´t pay attention, or are just uninformed. McConnell has already closed that door. They WILL scream, as will the Enemedia, but he has pointed out what the difference is, and my bet is he will be just as firm on this as he was on Garland.

Big middle finger to the Dems.

We won. Get used to it. We will win again this November.

These days more than ever we hear people talking about hate. The media in particular obsesses over so-called "hate crimes." The logic behind this fear is that incidents motivated by hatred over religion, gender, class, or any other distinction are somehow worse than crimes committed over money, love, or any other number of factors. And, of course, we know that too many elements of our society brand mere differences of opinion as hate. Advocates of traditional marriage often receive the brand of "hater" because they believe in a particular definition of wedlock, even though these people may have never expressed

Megyn Kelly: Elizabeth Warren

NBC News’ Megyn Kelly ridiculed Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday for her DNA test showing that she is less than two percent Native American. (Video) Kelly rebuked the idea that the test proved that the Massachusetts Senator is Native American and chastised Warren for ever classifying herself as a minority. NBC’s Morgan Radford argued that “acknowledging who you are isn’t using who you are.” “It is when you are touted as the first Native American professor at Harvard Law School and you’re not Native American,” Kelly shot back, adding that it’s “not good enough” that Warren just thought she

German populism goes pop in Bavaria: After staging a high-profile fight over immigration against Chancellor Merkel, the Bavarian Christian Social Union got crushed in Sunday´s state elections. It got 37% of the vote, the lowest in his history. The biggest winner wasn´t the Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD), the right-wing populist party, but the ultra-left Greens, who won 17% of the vote vs. 10% for AfD. The Greens are now the second biggest party, surpassing the Social Democrats. The Greens are also the most pro-immigration party in Germany.

Nearly everybody loves music. In fact, music can often bridge the gaps between people when nothing else can. And there are few things more fun than seeing people react to hit songs. There’s definitely no formula to what constitutes a hit song, although some songs were natural hits from the first time they made their way on the radio – think about songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” or “Irreplaceable.” Other tunes become smashes inexplicably. But there’s a whole different category of hits: overrated songs. Some singles have no business being popular or well-loved, and

A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit from adult film actress Stormy Daniels that claimed President Donald Trump defamed her when he suggested she had lied about being threatened to keep quiet about their relationship.Federal District Judge S. James Otero in Los Angeles had indicated during a late September hearing that he was skeptical of Daniels´s claim on First Amendment grounds. The ruling ordered Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay Trump´s legal fees.Trump attorney Charles Harder cheered Otero´s decision and said the amount of legal fees owed would be determined later."No amount

A Catholic priest who was stripped of his priestly faculties in early October also works for the state as a contract psychologist. Dr. Robert Gerl works with the state’s disability determination service out of a Kalamazoo office, said Bob Wheaton, a spokesman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The department´s understanding is that the psychologist working for the department is the same Gerl whose priestly faculties were revoked by the Diocese of Lansing for credible allegations of sexual assault of an adult male alleged to have occurred decades ago, Wheaton said. The department was looking into the

There are a lot of reasons I’m not a Democrat. For example, I believe that… 1. Jesus, America, and capitalism have been the three greatest forces of good in world history. 2. An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10. 3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence. 4.

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority “Native American” to get ahead in her career. Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president. In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American. In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff. Hat Tip Chris-A 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) launched a bizarre Twitter rant late Monday afternoon following the disastrous rollout of DNA results that further debunked her decades-long claim to American Indian ancestry. Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself. In her first tweet, and without any evidence, Warren made the outlandish claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.” The truth is that all Trump has ever done is ridicule her false claims about being Cherokee. “We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, unless it’s a shredded Banksy, obviously, which is worth around £1m. But how to put a value on the majestic artwork Donald Trump was revealed to have gracing the wall outside the Oval Office, as eagle-eyed viewers of 60 Minutes spotted? (Snip) Barack Obama has a taste for modern art; George W Bush is a (not half bad) painter himself; so what of Trump’s choice? The painting, showing former Republican presidents (which some have likened to Dogs Playing Poker) was painted in oil by Andy Thomas, who is more often found

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows “strong evidence” she has Native-American heritage, rebutting President Donald Trump’s ridicule of her as “fake Pocahontas” while she signals a possible 2020 presidential run. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native-American ancestry. “When I decided to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family’s Native American heritage would come

Elections: American democracy has a problem — a voting problem. According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It´s a troubling fact that puts our nation´s future in peril. The data come from Judicial Watch´s Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau´s American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. As reported by the National Review´s Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, "some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote

On Oct. 14, CBS’s “60 Minutes” aired an interview with President Donald Trump — rare for its status as having appeared outside of Fox News or conservative media. Appearing the same weekend as First Lady Melania Trump’s appearance on “20/20,” this would seem to represent a new level of media blitzing on the part of an administration that’s already seen its head get plenty of free promotion during rallies broadcast on cable news. And, like Melania Trump’s utterly-on-message, relentlessly forward-moving TV interview, the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief
