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

Dems are completely tied in knots and bickering amongst themselves.

Not much they can do with this excellent lady. If they try to smear her they will come off looking like the lowlife scum-suckers that they are.

Go ahead and try to completely destroy her. Dig up a bunch of guys that said she worked as a hooked on the stroll in Chicago and used heroin and hooked to support her habit and that she cheats on her husband and batters and abuses her elderly parents and more runs a sex trafficking operation with Gishlane Maxwell, and that she is a planted Russian operative. Go for it! Bork her real good and feel better about yourselves. I dare you.

Every time they try to use Catholic against her, the immediate reply should be Biden and Pelosi are Catholic. They throw their supposed faith around frequently, so throw it back at ‘em.

The suggestion that Dims might boycott the nationally-televised confirmation hearings is ludicrous. These poseurs live for their moments on the nation's TV screens. Expect Cryin' Chuck Schumer to emote on the loss of a left-wing hero and the horror of a truly constructionist jurist who is (horrors!) a woman who has a brilliant legal career and 7 children, two of which are adopted special needs children from Haiti. Someone that virtuous simply must be smeared. I know Chuck's not on the committee, but he'll find the news crew willing to give him all the air time he wants.

The smart move would be to ask a few good and probing questions, and then to vote. The radical base, however, will not allow this. The dems are wedded to the abortion industry, and probably won't be able to resist being maniacs right before the election.

Engage with what ? They are 5 weeks from an election in which their jobs are on the line. They can trash a mother of seven kids who is a sitting federal judge or they can shut up and go home.

A Haitian will emerge from the shadows to claim Amy Coney Barrett’s adopted children are her stolen progeny. Democrats will attack and delay the confirmation if Feinstein is up to the deception reprise.

Engage or withdraw and the painful truth is, it doesn't matter what they do. Withdrawing makes them look like lightweight cowards. Engaging with their typical smear tactics makes them look like bullies. Either way, Coney Barrett will be on the SCOTUS. Dems have nothing of value to bring to this discussion. All they can do is put on a bad show. Given the influence of the Left, that is what they will probably do. Rioting seems to be their solution of choice. The dems are impotent and a reckoning is coming. Their misery will be deserved, prolonged, and delightful. A side observation, it is really good that Trump nominated Kavanaugh before and Coney Barrett now. Can you imagine how insane dems would be with sexual abuse accusations at this point if Kavanaugh, or probably any man was the nominee. Appointing a woman stole one of the Left's most potent weapons.

Some could act like adults and vote yes/no on her nomination based on her qualifications. That would be the smart thing to do, because while the radical fringes make the noise in politics, the centrist mass has the votes.

NEW YORK — Coronavirus continues to spread “at an alarming rate” in several New York City neighborhoods, the city health department said Sunday, a day before it is expected to decide whether to shut down private schools and nonessential businesses there. The COVID infection rate in Gravesend/Homecrest is 6.75%, up from 6% last week; 5.34% in Midwood, up from 4.95%; and 4.41% in Borough Park, up from 3.53%, according to the Health Department. It also flagged Kew Gardens, Edgemere/Far Rockaway, Bensonhurst/Mapleton, Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/Sheepshead Bay and Flatlands/Midwood as areas of concern. “Seven of the eight neighborhoods saw increases even from the

On Sept. 21, Steve Guest, rapid response director for the Republic National Committee, posted on Twitter an eight-second Trump campaign clip of a speech by Joe Biden with the comment, "Joe Biden completely botches the Pledge of Allegiance." The clip was viewed more than 1.5 million times and generated comments regarding Biden's mental state. Some who shared the quick clip claimed Biden made a gaffe, or "botched" the pledge, including Dinesh D'Souza, The Federalist, PJ Media and Fox News' Sean Hannity.

Less than six weeks before the election, one of the most profound disappointments among some of Joe Biden’s supporters is that he doesn’t even seem to be trying. If some Democrats are correct, crushing “The Donald” should have been easy. After all (according to them), President Trump is an impeached, sex-offending, tax-evading, white supremacist, coronavirus-mismanaging, sexist, racist, Islamophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, sexist liar who is wildly unpopular. And Biden has long showed a hefty advantage in the polls. If all of that’s true, then Biden need do little more than show up, and winning should be a piece of cake

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

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.

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.
