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

Fox News, by Adam Shaw

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 10/10/2018 1:17:05 PM

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!

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.

The elite wanted a world without God and they got it. Andrew Sullivan argues that with the decline of traditional religions the godless world has embraced political cults. They are finding the resulting world an uncongenial place. (Snip) But Sullivan´s timeline is wrong. The death of God was announced more than a century ago appropriately enough, by Nietschze´s fictional madman. He already foresaw the vacuum that would come. "Is there still any up or down? Are we not straying, as through an infinite nothing? ... God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him." What

It’s hard to say with certainty whether Christine Blasey Ford has memory issues, mental problems, or is just a liar, but it is crystal clear that her allegations that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh aren’t true. So, when Sports Illustrated shoehorned her into announcing an award, it seemed really strange. (Snip) Of course, people get very angry when you point out the obvious fact that Ford made a false allegation. You get told, “This is why women who are sexually assaulted don’t come forward.” You should blame Ford for that. She’s the one

R.I.P. Weekly Standard. On Friday, staff at the conservative magazine were told to clear out their desks by 5 p.m. Many fans of President Donald Trump hailed the Standard´s shuttering as evidence of Trump´s victory over the #NeverTrump holdouts, but the magazine´s co-founder, John Podhoretz, insisted that is the wrong lesson to learn. "One key thing: It actually wasn´t about Trump, or only about Trump on the margins. This was far more in the nature of a weird personal vendetta," Podhoretz tweeted.

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was unable to recover text messages from the iPhones of FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page from their time on the special counsel team because the records officer scrubbed them, a new report from the DOJ watchdog reveals. Regarding Strzok´s iPhone, investigators were told that it "had been reset to factory settings and was reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued." The special counsel’s records officer said that she had "determined it did not contain records that needed to be retained.” She wrote in her records log, "No substantive texts,

Nancy and Chuck Seem Clueless

One wonders if Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have any concept how pathetic and clueless their politically motivated, anti- border wall clichés look in light of the latest terror attack in Strasbourg. Their insistence, in Tuesday´s meeting with Trump, that the wall by itself would not be a panacea--whoever said it was?--and that we don´t have the Islamist threat the Israelis or even the Europeans do to justify its construction now seems extraordinarily simple-minded. In fact it always was. Under the radar and barely remarked upon by our media, that cross-border terror threat has already done something even worse

You can forget about buying an aftermarket ticket to Taylor Swift or, soon, to any other concert. Or, perhaps “scalping” will return to the much darker, 19th Century-style meaning. Taylor Swift, one of the more-stalked celebrities in the world, recently used advanced facial recognition technology on fans who spent their hard-earned money on tickets to attend her show. The Verge reports that it was done in the name of keeping the star safe: (Snip) So fans of Swift’s songs like “I Knew You Were Trouble” and fanatics alike were baited and switched -- the bait being the highlight reel, the

I’m sure most readers took note of the hoax identity politics academic journal articles recently, but I have found a real article that you could easily suppose to be a hoax. The article is “The Real Reason Liberals Drink Lattes,” and it appears in PS, which is a secondary journal of the American Political Science Association (APSA). (That’s PS, not BS, you wiseacres out there!) This relevant bit of social science deserves to be savored at length, especially as the article is behind a paywall that costs more than a week’s quota of liberal lattes.

On December 7, 2018, the Google Play Store approved the latest version of "Smart Pakem," an app that allows Muslims in Jakarta, the capital of the largest Muslim country on earth, to report violations of Sharia law such as blasphemy and even heresy. The app allows users to report people who practice unrecognized religions or unorthodox interpretations of Indonesia´s six officially recognized faiths: Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Protestant Christianity, and Roman Catholic Christianity. According to Google´s translation on the Google Play Store, "Smart Pakem" intends "to make it easier to find information and manage religion, belief flow and community organizations

In a revealing New York Times expose, an investigation revealed that hundreds of apps are tracking our every move, many without asking permission or explaining what they are doing with the information. They know exactly where we are and where we have been at almost any moment in time. It’s a broad surveillance effort, affecting over 200 million Americans, designed to gather more personal data and sell it to corporations, including advertisers, banks, insurance companies, health providers, and retailers. IBM, for example, is one of the key players in this industry. Examples in the article include apps tracking people into hospital

A Book That Changes the

It isn’t often that a book can revolutionize the general understanding of an entire concept, and can lead to a fresh way of approaching a problem that had hitherto stymied even the most acclaimed experts in the field. Such a book is Jamie Glazov’s remarkable Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us; if heeded, his book could do nothing less than break the West out of the suicidal death spiral in which it seems inextricably caught today. Jihadist Psychopath is most certainly the first book to tackle head-on, from a new and entirely unexpected angle, the odd

Facebook got its start as FaceMash: a site comparing the attractiveness of female Harvard students. It was then reborn as a social network for Harvard students, Ivy League schools and then everyone. More recent surveys showed that the average Facebook user in the United States is 40 years old. That makes Facebook users less likely to start stupid viral trends, those tend to come from younger social media apps, some owned by Facebook, and more likely to be deeply engaged in politics. Mark Zuckerberg had created a company to appeal to college students who wanted to rate the cutest girls

The Washington Post reports today: "An unnamed senior U.S. official with direct knowledge of the matter told The Washington Post last week that Trump learned of the arrest [of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou] only after the meal had concluded and reacted with intense anger." The Washington Post may not be the most reliable source on internal matters of the Trump administration, but the story rings true -- and it is frightening. On Dec. 6, I conjectured in Asia Times that the president´s enemies set him up. It´s looking more and more like a Deep State operation against the president. The

In October, Warren released a DNA test in an attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s many attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives.

The Chief Justice of California’s Supreme Court announced on Thursday that she had left the Republican Party following the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. California Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye told CALmatters that she had been deliberating her decision for a while but made up her mind after watching the backlash following multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from Palo Alto, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.
