Babble: The 'Debates' and the SCOTUS

Original Article

Posted By: real fifi, 6/30/2019 6:42:53 AM

Life is too short to spend it on phony debates when you can see the highlights in videos and read the text of the remarks. The word peddlers are each picking their claims as to who won. The more critical observers suggest that I was right not to bother. Apparently Julian Castro thought transwomen have a right to an abortion. (Perhaps after taxpayers pay for them to have a uterus transplant): HOLT: Secretary Castro, this one is for you. All of you on stage support a woman’s right to an abortion. You all support some version of a government health care option.

Comments:

Neither the democrat candidates nor Chief Justice Roberts did themselves proud this week,

My definition of "reproductive freedom" is the freedom to become pregnant, the freedom to have as many children as you desire and the freedom to have either of the two genders without government intervention. My definition does not include the "freedom to kill your unborn child."

When Obama didn’t like a court order, he ignored it. In fact , he exceeded the constitutional bounds of his office at least 10 times, notes Ilya Shapiro. He did it in intervening in Libya without even notifying Congress; in subverting creditors’ rights in the Chrysler bailout; in his administration’s implementation of ObamaCare; In the political profiling by the IRS; in illegally appointing three members of the NLRB and the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Board when Congress was not in recess; in directing “the Department of Homeland Security to issue work and residence permits” to the so-called Dreamers (Deferred Action to Childhood Arrivals);

A Made Man (Mueller) Unmakes Himself 9 replies

In common parlance, a made man is someone whose path to success was greased by circumstances. It also refers to someone formally inducted as a full member of a criminal outfit -- the Mafia. In the political atmosphere in which Robert Mueller was born, he, like John Kerry, was virtually assured of a prestigious place in society: He was a tall white man with a hatchet jaw who (like his classmate Kerry) went to an expensive private school – St. Paul’s -- and came from a well-connected and well-off family.

That’s the title of a great song in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and that, it occurs to me, is an appropriate song for the media and the Democrats. For two years they vigorously promoted -- for their amusement and political benefit -- a fake Russian collusion story and now must watch it unravel and boomerang on them, their allies and the miscreants who created it. They had their fun, and the denouement has begun.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020. This morning the president tweeted about “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen”: [Tweet]I assume Trump is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” and I share his low opinion of those ill-informed leftists. And no doubt he had in mind Ilhan Omar when he referred to “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe,” etc. His description certainly applies to Somalia.

The transgender conquest of women’s sports continued over the weekend as a New Zealand weightlifter took home multiple gold medals at the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa. Laurel Hubbard won two gold medals and a silver in the three heavyweight categories, for women weighing more than 87 kilograms, or 192 pounds, finishing first in the snatch-lift and combined categories and second in the clean-and-jerk. The 41-year-old weightlifter was born as Gavin Hubbard and reportedly transitioned while in the mid-30s. According to Caldron Pool, a Christian website that reported the outcome, the woman in second place was Samoa’s

On a Morning Joe interview that aired on Tuesday morning, Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden responded to questions about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's handling of the ultra-liberal group of freshmen lawmakers known as "the squad." Biden said he believed that Pelosi was "masterful" in her work, but further heaped high praise on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying, "I think the freshmen, particularly AOC, is smart as hell."Biden's response on Tuesday comes the morning after Ocasio-Cortez, along with three other female freshman lawmakers condemned the weekend tweets by President Trump in which he said if the congresswomen were unhappy with the United States they should, "go back

How does a boss manage a worker who believes their feelings trump reality, right down to the way she "feels" about her misspelled words? Gently. And probably badly, even though that's no fault of the boss in question. Carol Blymire -- a "communications and public policy executive, branding consultant, professor, writer" -- took to Twitter on Friday to tell the story she overheard of a young writer, probably "in her late 20s," going over edits with her boss. (Snip) What issue caused mentor and student such agitation and aggravation? Had the boss been needlessly cruel? Had the young writer pushed some radical agenda, and was refusing to tamp it down

Rep. Ilhan Omar fired a heated broadside at President Trump in the wake of his recent inflammatory tweets about the Minnesota Democrat and other progressive congresswomen. Speaking during a news conference alongside Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Omar forcefully went after Trump. "This is a president who has ultimately violated the very value our country aspires to uphold," she said in the stunning attack. "To distract from that, he is launching a blatantly racist attack on four duly-elected members of the United States House of Representatives, all of whom are women of color.

I’m so old that I remember when George Will’s opinion mattered to Republicans. Apparently, the Bezos Bulletin scribe realizes he’s lost his influence on the Grand Old Party and now offers advice to the Democrats on their nominee, in hopes that someone out there still cares about his opinions.His disgust at President Trump – who has the support of roughly 90% of Republicans – is such that he has now taken to telling (fellow?) Democrats whom they should nominate in 2020, in order to defeat the man who has restored the American economy to growth rates exceeding population growth ( a task his predecessor assured us required a “magic wand”),

A recent poll from Public Policy Polling, showed U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) co-captain Megan Rapinoe defeating President Trump in a hypothetical 2020 presidential matchup. (Tweet) Rapinoe, the co-captain of the World Cup-winning U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, has in many ways become a media fascination, best known for protesting during the U.S. national anthem. Given Rapinoe’s strong opposition to President Trump and her strong stances on political issues, Public Policy Polling decided to poll a head-to-head contest between the president and the soccer star.The result? Rapinoe bested the president by one percentage point.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said he was recently given documents showing that both he and his wife are descendants of people who owned slaves. In a post Sunday night for the website Medium, the former Texas congressman wrote that the documents showed that one of his paternal great-great-great grandfathers owned two women, named Rose and Eliza, in the 1850s. He said records also showed that one ancestor of his wife, Amy, owned slaves while another was part of the Confederate Army.(Staff) 'For example, there is 10 times the wealth in white America than there is in black America.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand teared up in front of a crowd of progressives after admitting that she benefitted in her life from “enormous amounts of white privilege.” During the Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia over the weekend, the New York senator told a story about a poor, white mother she recently met in Youngstown, Ohio, who couldn’t understand the concept of “white privilege.” “This conversation about white privilege is so important because what she doesn’t see is that as her son grows older, as my sons grow older, there’s going to be moments in his life that his whiteness protects

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) threw President Donald Trump’s own words back at him as the two exchanged insulting tweets on Sunday. Responding to a Trump tweet attacking “'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen,” in which he suggested that the policies the unnamed congresswomen advocate come “from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world,” Omar replied by calling Trump “the worst, most corrupt and inept president”: Mr. President, As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States. Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced on Monday a House resolution to condemn Trump’s so-called ‘racist’ tweets toward AOC and her fellow ‘squad’ of Communist, America-hating Congresswomen. “The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to House Democrats.“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Pelosi added. “Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy
