CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin shared harsh words for the Democratic Party as they push to keep the recently vacated Supreme Court seat unoccupied until after January's inauguration. Toobin, during a Monday morning appearance on New Day, argued that Democrats, who are the minority party in the upper chamber, are "wimps and they're afraid." He made the comments in response to a question about Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer saying, "Nothing is off the table next year." “Democrats are great about talking big, but we’ll see if he has the ... if he and the other Democrats have the

The great and powerful 0z summed this whole thing up in 2009 when he told McCain "elections have consequences." Sauce for the goose. Argument over.

Don't worry, Chuck. NY allowed abortions prior to the Roe v Wade decision, and still will even if it's over turned, so you should not use that in any argument. Washington, Hawaii and Alaska also allowed for legal abortions prior to 1973 decision. Since, the folks in NJ, CA, IL, MA and nearly every State has laws on the books to allow legal abortions in one form or another, some with restrictions after 2nd semester, for example. So, being Catholic should not matter in any SCOTUS decision in regards to a possible decision on abortion. Besides, 77% of Catholic Dems believe in legal abortion, despite what the Church says publicly.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg had always been on the record on abortion, saying the U.S. supreme Court should never had taken the Roe v. Wade case, instead leaving it up to each state to decide.

All that will happen if the Court should ever overturn Roe is that it will throw it back to the states, which is where it should have stayed in the first place. The media and democrats lie if they say anything else. Many many states do not want that abomination within their borders. If you want abortions move to a state that will accommodate you. But stop forcing evil on the rest of us.

The Schmuck and his new sidekick, Taco Barbie, keep threatening that if they get in, anything goes, nothing is off the table. McConnell needs to get on the Senate floor and repeat what these two harpies have said and then proceed to do to them, everything they are threatening to do .

Imagine hating yourself enough to watch a presidential debate featuring Donald Trump. What reason would you possibly have? To make sure he’s a lying sociopath? To see if he’s a worse choice than Joe Biden? To gain useful insights into American politics? In truth, there is no point, especially in a format that will involve remote participation because of the pandemic. Nothing will be revealed that we don’t already know and know so thoroughly that we can barely stand to hear it again. We could cancel the upcoming debates and lose nothing.

Most Americans, regardless of whether they are Republican or Democrat, believe the Senate should move forward with confirmation hearings for a Supreme Court Justice this year, a new poll says. The Marquette University Law School poll found 67% of respondents believed confirmation should proceed in 2020 while just 32% said the chamber should hold off. The survey was conducted between Sept. 8 to Sept. 15 — just days before the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from cancer Friday evening. The poll did not suggest a strong partisan divide over the issue, with 68% of Republicans and 63% of Democrats holding

Democrats have reacted with anger after Senator Dianne Feinstein appeared to dismiss the idea of ending the filibuster and expanding the Supreme Court. Feinstein was asked about abolishing the filibuster which allows a senator to hold up the passage of legislation by speaking for hours at a time. The California Democrat ruled out getting rid of the filibuster as part of an effort to pack the Supreme Court. "I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose. It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's

CNN host Don Lemon proposed radically changing the U.S. political system to take power away from the "minority" vote in the country. During the hand-off before his show Monday night, Lemon debated fellow network host Chris Cuomo by arguing Democrats should push to eliminate the Electoral College, which would require a constitutional amendment. Lemon said such a feat was possible if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats "stack the courts." "Until you have a group of people that decide to consistently be better than what they reject, you’re going to have people in the exact position

A former prosecutor on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team writes in a new book that the group failed to fully investigate President Trump’s financial ties and should have stated explicitly that they believed he obstructed justice, claiming that their efforts were limited by the ever-present threat of Trump disbanding their office and by their own reluctance to be aggressive.

Move over Boaters for Trump, here come the Amish! The Amish/Mennonite community held a pro-Trump parade in Fredericksburg, Ohio, on Saturday — replete with horses and buggies, cows, wagons, and maybe a few chickens thrown in for good measure. The parade was organized by Bikers for Trump in an effort to help “energize” Amish/Mennonite support for Trump and provide the traditionalist Christian sects a more visible voice in the 2020 election. From horse-drawn carriages to wagons decorated with Trump-Pence banners, to two guys riding steers, it was a sight to behold. “All of the enthusiasm was on Trump’s side,” one

A large sculpture of a donkey that was designed to be a Democratic symbol was destroyed in a Maine town overnight Saturday after someone set the structure ablaze. Rep. Seth Berry described the incident in Bowdoinham as “an act of arson and of political terrorism" after the traveling donkey, which was named Mr. H, was set on fire at around 2 a.m. on the property of Theresa Turgeon, a former select board member. “Mr. H took two full years to build,” Berry, who serves under the Democratic Party, wrote on Facebook. “He was larger than life, perhaps 7 feet tall

Bryson DeChambeau saved his best round for last at the 2020 U.S. Open, carding a 3-under 67 at Winged Foot on Sunday to claim his first career major championship. DeChambeau's closing round was just two strokes off the best 18-hole score of the week (65) as he grinded out grueling, sometimes gusty conditions with an effortless combination of his length off the tee and control around the greens. DeChambeau, who caught and then surpassed 21-year-old Matthew Wolff (the 54-hole leader), was the only golfer in the field to finish with a final-round score under par, cementing himself in the history

Washington — Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden indicated Sunday he will not be releasing a list of possible Supreme Court nominees despite growing pressure to do so. The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday has left a vacancy on the high court and added another twist to the presidential race. In remarks on the future of the Supreme Court from the National Constitution Center from Philadelphia, Biden singled out President Trump as the only presidential candidate to release a slate of possible nominees to the high court and suggested his doing so both in 2016 and 2020 set a

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday would not rule out impeachment as an option to stop President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench, saying Democrats will “use every arrow in our quiver” to block the eventual nominee. Just hours after it was announced that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.” During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel. This good news for the world was bad news for the media.

Andre Taylor—who appeared in the documentary “American Pimp” about his life as “Gorgeous Dre”—is getting $12,500 per month for a year, along with an office in Seattle’s Municipal Tower, according to the contract published by PubliCola. It comes just a year after his organization, Not This Time, was paid $100,000 to sponsor a speaker series that was called “Conversations with the Streets.” Taylor led one of the first rallies in Seattle
