On a late Thursday afternoon conference call of the left-wing group Patriotic Millionaires, group President Erica Payne urged activists to work against a coming Trump Supreme Court nominee by “mak[ing] this an unbelievably painful process for Senate Republicans” and “kick[ing] the f--- out of” Democratic senators who won’t fight hard enough. (Snip) The strategy, outlined in a letter the group plans to send to all Democratic senators, would involve gumming up the Senate works in several ways in order to cause “a massive headache” for Republican senators who want to be in their home states campaigning for reelection. Specifically, the

Why bother with hearings? They'll just find a way to delay the vote. Just call it and move on.

#5 is quite right. An attempt to smear a decent nominee will backfire. Just like harassing outdoor diners, screaming at them with bullhorns and turning over tables is creating more Trump voters every day.

When they drag out the “we need copies of every ruling she has made” tactic just refer them to their notes from a couple of years ago. If the boycott just schedule the vote. We know under these circumstances the left would do the same thing.

OK Socialistas Bring on your best NASTY campaign. Dem senators and all. Hell bring in Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler as witnesses. Just remember this. You are up against a president who has slapped you silly for almost 4 years. If that's not scary enough you are up against a woman (any of the nominees) who has the intellect and accomplishments to make her eligible to sit on the Supreme Court of the USA. And to ice the cake, probably about two weeks later I get to VOTE. MAGA

The only war the United Nations ever agreed to support was the Korean War. And the only reason the Security Council agreed to allow it was because the Soviet Union boycotted the meeting and stepped out. Looks like Democrats are about to follow the Russian playbook.

The only objective they can have at this point is to make Trump’s pick look illegitimate. In the end it is irrelevant and they know it. This is the only tactic they have to feed their base. It won’t work. Elections have consequences.

As Democratic senators begin mapping out how they will wield their limited procedural weapons in the fight over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, they are grappling with a central question: How much legitimacy do they give his candidate? With little power to actually derail Trump’s pick, Democrats are coming under considerable pressure from their activist base to use every tactic at their disposal to not just throw sand in the gears of the confirmation fight, but to portray the consideration of expected nominee Amy Coney Barrett as a farce that shouldn’t even occur. In a sense, they are playing the

If calling a “lid" enters the mainstream American lexicon, this will be the week it all started. Joe Biden called a lid — the arcane term reporters use when a politician is done traveling for the day — at 1:02 p.m. Friday; 9:20 a.m. Thursday; 9:22 a.m. Tuesday and 8:34 a.m. Saturday. Biden’s early turn-ins provoked the Twitter set, professionally nervous Democrats (OK, bedwetters) and, notably, Donald Trump to scratch their heads or rain down ridicule. “Did you see he did a ‘lid’ this morning again?” Trump asked Thursday evening in Jacksonville, Fla., pausing to offer a definition for the

WILMINGTON, Del. — The final stretch of a presidential campaign is typically a nonstop mix of travel, caffeine and adrenaline. But as the worst pandemic in a century bears down on the United States, Joe Biden is taking a lower key approach. Since his Aug. 11 selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, Biden has had 22 days where he either didn’t make public appearances, held only virtual fundraisers or ventured from his Delaware home solely for church, according to an Associated Press analysis of his schedules. He made 12 visits outside of Delaware during that period

MIAMI — Progressive activists backing Joe Biden in Florida say they’ve made millions of phone calls, sent hundreds of thousands of text messages and even written thousands of letters to persuade voters to support the Democratic presidential nominee. But one thing they’re largely not doing — and growing increasingly worried about — is talking to voters face to face. Now, with the number of coronavirus cases down from their July peak in Florida and Election Day less than six weeks away, the state’s largest left-leaning grassroots organizations and political field operations are making a last-minute push to get back in

Ginsburg died Friday of complications from pancreatic cancer at 87. “Her father was an immigrant from Odessa,” Roberts continued. “Her mother was born four months after her family arrived from Poland.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Democrats in of the House of Representatives will introduce a bill next week to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years from current lifetime appointments, in a bid to reduce partisan warring over vacancies and preserve the court’s legitimacy. The new bill, seen by Reuters, would allow every president to nominate two justices per four-year term and comes amid heightened political tensions as Republican President Donald Trump prepares to announce his third pick for the Supreme Court after the death on Sept. 18 of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with just 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election.
