Donald Trump on Saturday unveils his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, the third of his presidency. Credit a man who looks like the undertaker but acts like the corpse for the more expressive, energetic politician picking three justices instead of one. Mitch McConnell played a 12 into a 21 after the February 2016 death of Antonin Scalia. Faced with a nominee moderate by the standards of recent justices placed on the bench by Democratic presidents, the Senate majority leader opted to block Merrick Garland on the assumption that the Republican presidential nominee would win in November 2016.

It was McConnell's job to block the Garland nomination. Thanks for doing it.

This is an interesting column, but I had to re-read several sentences/paragraphs to understand what was being written. With the pandemic and with the demand to produce lots of columns, it seems to me that authors of Internet publications are in crying need of editors!

I find it repulsive that some would refer to the Majority Leader of the Senate in such a Demeaning way. Mitch has done a great job for President Trump. He has pushed through over 300 Judges in Trump's first Term along with Two Supreme Court Judges, soon to be Three, all in Four years. He will continue to do a great job in Trump's second term. Like him or not, I think he deserves Respect for the Position he holds.

Remember delaying the Garland nomination was done in face of 21 out of 23 polls saying Hillary was a shoo in. It takes political acumen and courage. Like all politicians Leader McConnell has his drawbacks. But credit must be given where it is due - otherwise we are all Democrats!

For Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Republican Senate to stand firm at that time was truly out of character for all of them. I was happy, but truly taken aback that they had it in them. I thought then, and I think now, that they did it because they knew (or suspected with good reason) something about the real cause Antonin Scalia‘s death, and that it was a bridge too far, even for the Deep State.

McConnell has done an amazing job with the federal judiciary, beginning with blocking Garland. If he hadn't done that we would now be getting a 4-4 court with Roberts a swing vote. Instead, we will have a solid 5-4 Conservative court with Roberts a swing vote of little value. I suspect with his vote having no impact, Roberts will enjoy swinging less. On other issues, McConnell has been less reliable. He was pretty solid during the impeachment trial so that was good. He is less good in dealing with corruption of the federal bureaucracy and general support for Trump's agenda. I sense Mitch is drifting into Trump's camp over time and that is great. However, the court wins will make McConnell's legacy. If Breyer, 82, leaves during Trump's second term, it would be amazing.

In almost one-third of the days of September, the Biden campaign has called a “lid”—meaning no further events or candidate appearances—by 9 am in the morning. People used to joke that Ronald Reagan was only a 9 to 5 president, with a nap after lunch. (Not true: he was usually answering personal correspondence.) Is Biden going to be an 9 – 1o am president? And has Kamala Harris been put into the witness protection program? She still hasn’t held a press conference or made a major appearance since she was nominated to be Biden’s running mate. Meanwhile, let’s get ready for Justice Barrett!

2Pac lives! Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris called Tupac Shakur the “best rapper alive” during an interview at the NAACP’s virtual convention Friday — even though the legendary emcee has been dead for more than two decades. “Best rapper alive?” CNN commentator Angela Rye asked the Oakland native. “Tupac,” Harris answered with little hesitation before Rye reminded her that the West Coast icon had passed away long ago. “Not alive, I know, I keep doing that,” Harris said with a laugh.

If this is the most important election in decades, this is its most important moment. Thus far, this campaign has been a referendum on Trump; Tuesday’s debate will be one on Biden. Its outcome depends on which Biden shows up. Like all races with a president seeking re-election, this one has centered on the incumbent. Thanks to a hostile media and Trump’s aggressive use of social media, America has had plenty of material for judgement. Topping it off, 2020 has been an acutely tumultuous year: Beginning with an impeachment trial and now a contentious Supreme Court vacancy — with a pandemic, a recession, and nationwide violence in between.

The FBI has arrested the founder of a Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta on fraud and money laundering charges. Sir Maejor Page, 32, was accused Friday of misappropriating $200,000 in donations he solicited through Facebook on behalf of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, Fox 5 Atlanta reported Friday. Page was arrested in Toledo and released on bond after appearing before a judge via video. He did not immediately return messages Saturday from Fox News. The Toledo FBI office opened an investigation last year after a cooperating witness submitted a fraud complaint against Page, whose real name is Tyree Conyers-Page, FBI agent Matthew Desorbo said in the complaint.

The Republican National Committee launched a $10 million campaign to promote President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to “hold Democrats accountable” for what the GOP called their “hypocrisy” on the nomination process to the high court. The initiative, rolled out after the president formally nominated Coney Barrett to the high court on Saturday from the White House Rose Garden, includes a $10 million digital ad campaign, a new website and a get-out-the-vote effort in target states. The RNC said Saturday that the initiative also includes a “massive rapid response operation” to amplify Coney Barrett’s record, while “harnessing voters’ enthusiasm about appointing a constitutionalist”
Cotton Sets Up ‘Supreme Court War Room’

Sen. Tom Cotton's (R., Ark.) office will operate a campaign-style war room to help Republicans fight back against attacks on President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court. Cotton's "Supreme Court War Room" was launched Friday afternoon, a day before Trump is expected to announce his pick to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. His office says the project will track attacks on the nominee and provide rapid response to push back. Cotton, who himself was on Trump's list of potential nominees, created the project due to the ferocity of recent Supreme Court fights—especially over Trump's nominees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

The way the Democrats are working themselves into a lather over whether President Trump will commit himself to a “peaceful transferal” of power reminds us of the moment when we first realized the New Yorker could win the 2016 election. That was eight minutes into the first Republican primary debate, when moderator Bret Baier asked whether they would all pledge to support whoever emerged as the GOP nominee. Here’s how Mr. Baier put it: “Is there anyone on stage — and can I see hands — who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the Republican Party

Who can fail to be attracted to the Tesla? That sleek, silent-running electric vehicle seems more common on the road every day. The introduction of the Model 3 has put this fascinating, tech-heavy brand of car into the same price category as the more expensive nonluxury conventional vehicles. As a result, Tesla can barely build them fast enough to keep up with demand. Nor is Tesla the only make of electric car generating broad interest. Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, and other automakers are all expected to come out with new fully electric models in the next year or two. Even so, there are limits to this revolution.
What’s Really at Stake in 2020 6 replies

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has clarified what is at stake in the 2020 election. It is not, as some believe, democracy itself. Nor is it, as others assume, our continued existence as a nation. Democracy will survive Donald Trump, and the United States of America will outlast Joe Biden. The question that 2020 will help to answer is what sort of democracy, and what sort of nation, America will be as it prepares to enter the second quarter of the 21st century. The reaction to Ginsburg’s death, and to Republican plans to fill her seat on the Supreme Court, underscores the choice before the electorate:

Understanding what drives the revolution that is destroying the American republic gives insight into how the 2020 election’s results may impact its course. Its practical question—who rules?—is historically familiar. But any revolution’s quarrels and stakes obscure the question: to what end? Our revolution is by the ruling class—a revolution from above. Crushing obstacles to its growing oligarchic rule is the proximate purpose. But the logic that drives the revolution aims at civilization itself. What follows describes how far along its path that logic has taken America, and where it might take us in the future depending on the election’s outcome.

You remember “Where’s Waldo?” This election season, voters are asking: “Where’s Joe?” On Thursday, just a short 40 days before the election, the Biden campaign called a “lid” at 9 a.m. — no more questions, no more appearances for the rest of the day. That’s after The Post found that President Trump has answered five times the number of questions from reporters in the two months from mid-July to mid-September, 1,141 to a scant 274. Americans deserve to hear more from the man who wants to be president, and who is willing and able to face tougher questioning.

Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they will not meet with Amy Coney Barrett -- President Trump’s pick to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Trump announced on Saturday evening that he intends to nominate Barrett to fill the vacancy on the nation’s highest court after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last week. Democrats indicated that they will oppose Barrett’s nomination, citing her conservative credentials which they see as a threat to health care and abortion rights, while also arguing that it is too close to Election Day for Trump to nominate a justice.

In the past two months, Pelosi has called federal law officers “stormtroopers,” violated the mask rule she insists upon for others, claimed that she was a victim of a hair salon “set up,” (snip) Her worst act ever, though, could be her siding with the mob with the lie that the Louisville police involved with Breonna Taylor’s death are murderers.
