State attorneys general have filed an unprecedented number of lawsuits against the Trump administration, as Democratic-led states exercise new levers of power to block some of President Trump’s most controversial initiatives. States have formed coalitions to file 103 multi-state suits against the administration in its first three years, according to data compiled by Paul Nolette, a political scientist at Marquette University. The vast majority of those suits, 96, have been led by Democratic attorneys general.

If only Republican state AGs were as aggressive and on offense for conservative values when Obama was in office, PDJTs job to roll back unconstitutional but in effect federal policy would be easier. But it really brings in to question how 'conservative' are state officials. Like here in Texas, Gov Abbott & Lt Gov Dan Patrick sure talk a mean conservative game, but in the last Legislative Session, the majority republican controlled legislature did NOTHING to advance conservative issues on tax reductions, reduction in state spending, voter roll integrity, and pro-life protections of unborn babies. Their inaction leaves the door WIDE OPEN for voter fraud and no fire wall in case the huge amount of legal and illegal immigrants and Kalifornian and New York tax refugees vote in future Texas elections. Senators John Cornyn & Ted Cruz take it for granted that Texas republican voters are there for them, and I guess are relying on PDJT to fire up republic voters to turn out. The upcoming March republican primaries don't have PDJT aligned candidates in every Congressional race, let alone ones Beto won for democrats last time, so it'll be interesting to see how red Texas stays. Texas Republican party and Dallas Republican party seem to be asleep at the switch.

When a political party is 99/100th percent lawyers, it's to be expected. PDTs remake of the judiciary may help, but it's going to take time.

the federal government can be sued with the permission of the federal tort claims act of 1946. congress can change that law, if they chose to do so. without that law, sovereign immunity prevails, as I understand it, based on british common law - the king can do no wrong. kings rule because God wants them to rule. divine right leads directly to sovereign immunity.,

This is LawFare. It is part of liberal strategy. Part of the pushback recently by Gorsuch starts to close the door on these tactics. They shop for a friendly federal judge to get a favorable ruling and a national injunction. Gorsuch told judges they better stop issuing broad injunctions because they are not going to be received well by the SCOTUS. SLOWLY, doors are being slammed on dem tactics.

“There’s pretty much all upside and not much downside to bringing these suits.” Yeah, if you are an idle lawyer or judge, the wasteful activity makes money for all concerned. It's not about right and wrong, it's about which lawyer wins. This is exactly the type of legal nonsense that drove Sarah Palin out of the governor's office in Alaska. It wasn't that long ago that students were being discouraged from going to law school because there was a glut of lawyers and not enough income to go around. I see the democrats have taken care of that through constant harassment.

It’s easy for those Democrat States to initially win their cases, or obtain nationwide injunctions, in the lower federal courts located with their States based on political issues that effect those States being imposed by a Presidential Administration in far off DC. Not so much in the Appeals Courts and the Supreme Court. After all those partisan and politicized District Court Judges want to continue being invited to local political dinner parties.

Elections have consequences folks. This is on the voters in those states. People need to get the idea out of their head that their guys are okay, its all the others who are rotten. Guess what blue state voters? Your guys are not only rotten, they are brazenly stabbing you in the back. Simply because we finally have a president who is helping us succeed.

Trump's mirror on democracy 6 replies
Posted by tisHimself 2/13/2020 4:29:49 AM Post Reply
President Trump is a populist. He draws his strength from those who are angry with the way our government is working and tired of the pablum offered in lieu of authentic answers to problems real people face. In that sense, he provides a great service to our republic. He holds a mirror to the politics-as-usual crowd and what is seen is not pretty. When James Madison University professor Dr. Dan Schill and I conducted the CNN focus groups for the 2016 election, our very first observation was that voters were angry.

Eighty-five years after plural marriage was declared a felony, they still number in the thousands and have even been featured in the long-running reality TV show, “Sister Wives.” Now, a state lawmaker says it’s time to remove the threat of jail time for otherwise law-abiding polygamists.

Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden is the one Democrat capable of beating President Trump in the 2020 election, but he doesn't think Biden will win the nomination. Instead, he says it will likely go to one of the progressive candidates on the roster. "I'd say he's probably the most likely one to have a chance at beating Donald Trump, but I don't see Joe getting the nomination, I just don't see him getting there," Ryan told CNBC at the annual Milken Conference in Abu Dhabi.

At a brief training the Sunday before the Iowa caucuses, Iowa Democratic Party officials told the volunteers tasked with staffing a telephone hotline system to arrive Monday morning with books, puzzles and games — they were unlikely to be busy for hours. But throughout the day and into the night, the phones rang almost constantly in the so-called boiler room, where about 50 phone stations had been set up in a security-encased call center at the downtown Des Moines Iowa Events Center. On the other end of the phone lines were dozens of precinct leaders and county party chairs from across the state who could not download or log into

Bernie Sanders has been agitating against billionaires for years. From the Senate floor to the presidential campaign trail, Sanders targets the billionaire class and the outsized influence of moneyed interests. Now, the anti-billionaire candidate may face an extraordinary showdown with a real billionaire. Opinion Even if Sanders — or someone else — emerges as a clear front-runner after Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, billionaire ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg looms as a major threat.      Wide headline split.

The Oscars forgot that movies matter 12 replies
Posted by tisHimself 2/9/2020 3:08:49 AM Post Reply
I used to love the Oscars. The Oscars and election night were my “Super Bowls” growing up. I would print out the list of nominations, see all the movies with my cousin, and then vote for my favorites and which movies I thought would win. In sixth grade, I wrote that I wanted to be an executive producer — that’s how much I adored movies. I saw the medium of film not just as an end to be loved for its own sake but also as a means to change culture and direct people’s attention to the true, the good, and the beautiful. They say politics is downstream from culture.

The Democratic Party’s first big showing in the 2020 election has been an unmitigated disaster. On Sunday, a highly anticipated poll of likely Iowa Democratic caucus-goers was scuttled after a voter complained of polling irregularities, prompting the survey's conductors to shelve the results out of an "abundance of caution." On Monday, the day of caucuses, Iowa Democratic Party members held emergency meetings late into the evening over possible voting irregularities and precinct reporting errors. They announced eventually an indefinite delay to the release of the election results due to "quality checks."

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted photos of a briefing he'd received on the new coronavirus spreading out of China. "We will continue to monitor the ongoing developments," the President said in his post. "We have the best experts anywhere in the world, and they are on top of it 24/7!" Who are these experts? They're largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who've dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning.

It may be difficult to believe in this enlightened age but there was a time not so long ago when the National Review was the intellectual heart of America's conservative movement. Its writers were sharp, gifted and irreverent. Their appearances on Fox News and other TV outlets made them rock stars. All that ended on January 22, 2016, when the magazine posted online its "Against Trump" issue. Once again, the editors proudly chose to stand athwart history rather than make it. They chose to lose with what they consider honor rather than win.

Washington—Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh drew bipartisan condemnation Thursday for saying the country won’t elect Pete Buttigieg president because he’s been “kissing his husband” on stage after debates. Limbaugh’s comments came eight days after President Donald Trump awarded him the nation’s top civilian honor during the State of the Union address. The president said, among other things, that the tribute recognized the millions of people a day the host speaks to and inspires. Limbaugh, a staunch Trump ally who recently announced he has advanced lung cancer, made the remarks on his nationally syndicated radio show. Buttigieg has finished in the top

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

"People were just coming up to me and, you know, just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday," Sprague told News4.

Prosecutors initially sought a sentence of up to nine years in prison, but the Justice Department stepped in and said it would pursue a lesser penalty for Stone."We’re not going to take our options off the table.
