Original Article

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.

Comments:

CT and HI both have US Senators who refuse to do their duty as per the US Constitution. The symbol of the Democrat Party, a braying jackass, has never been more apropos-although I think it should be replaced by a crying baby in a soiled diaper.

No problem for me. From past confirmation hearings, the Dems have shown that they believe their duty is to Add Vice and Contempt.

"Hirono, Blumenthal say they won’t meet with Amy Coney Barrett" OMG.....does this mean she will not be be confirmed by the Judiciary Committee? I think not ! How do these two (along with most other dims) get elected and continue to act like spoiled brats? The mantra of the left wing dims (as usual) is "you play by my rules or I will take my ball and go home". Well we ain't going to play by your rules so pack your things and go on home !!!

Good for Barrett! Hirono, a shell of a human being is an outrageous ideologue with out the brain's to reason. Blumenthal, the hero of Viet Nam, is just lying garbage! He was never in Viet Nam although he claimed he was He's just a typical Democrat, truth and honor do not exist for these people.

Hirono disgraced herself during the Kavanaugh lynching. Blumenthal is a fake war hero. Both have been exposed for their poor character but the demonrat socialists don't seem to care if dishonorable persons are elected to high office. Pray for them rather than condemn them, they need to find a conscience.

The thing to remember is that, in the end, whatever the dems do is meaningless. They simply need to be endured. If solid rebuttal can be made, especially anything that is a pie in their face, great. ACB just needs to keep her cool, something she seems very well capable of doing. Heck, she's got 7 kids. Managing the "special needs" dems should be a piece of cake.

Good recommendation, OP. It would probably take a 60% majority to accomplish that and the dems are so proud of being jackasses that most would not change it for the world. I wonder if Blumenthal ever gets together with Jon Francois Caree to discuss their old war stories? Blumenthal: It was so long ago that I've pushed it out of my mind and can't remember any of it now. Caree: For me it was a pain in the butt but I've gotten over it.

The only redeeming politician of at least some minute degree is my fellow half-Samoan, Tulsi Gabbard, who single-handedly dismantled Kamala Harris in debate, and whom I hope sees the light and joins the GOP.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., couldn't nail down a plan for what lawmakers should do if President Trump refuses to concede the White House if he loses in November, but said there will be a "number of plans" if that scenario were to take place. During an interview on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" that aired Friday, Maher pressed Sanders on the specific plan that lawmakers have in place in the event Trump refuses to concede, telling the senator, “I still don’t know what the plan is.” "There are things that we have to do now to make sure that Biden wins," Sanders said.

SAN FRANCISCO — California’s largest wildfire is threatening a marijuana growing enclave, and authorities said many of the locals have refused to evacuate and abandon their maturing crops even as weather forecasters predict more hot, dry and windy conditions that could fan flames. The wildfire called the August Complex is nearing the small communities of Post Mountain and Trinity Pines, about 200 miles northwest of Sacramento, the Los Angeles Times reported. Law enforcement officers went door to door warning of the encroaching fire danger but could not force residents to evacuate, Trinity County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Trujillo said.

President Trump plans to announce that Amy Coney Barrett will be his nominee to the Supreme Court to fill the seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, multiple sources told Fox News on Friday. The president is expected to make the announcement during a White House event on Saturday. Barrett currently serves as a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Trump, who has a campaign rally scheduled later Friday night in Virginia, declined to say who he will announce when pressed by reporters at Joint Base Andrews. "You’ll find out tomorrow,” he said.

One lawmaker is fighting attempts to change the name of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial monument, after the U.S. Board on Geographic Names fielded at least one suggestion to do so. A California resident has proposed changing the name of the monument to “Igmu Tanka Paha,” which means “Cougar Mountain,” TribLIVE reported on Friday. It was a name given to the mountain by the Lakota people, who also call it “Tunkasila Sakpe Paha,” meaning Six Grandfathers Mountain. But a senior researcher for the board told the publication that even if the request for renaming was approved, it would only apply to the mountain – not the monument.

Last year, a political party in Germany provoked controversy when it used the following painting in its election campaign to illustrate one of the reasons it was against immigration. Painted in France in 1866 and titled "Slave Market," the painting was described as "show[ing] a black, apparently Muslim slave trader displaying a naked young woman with much lighter skin to a group of men for examination," probably in North Africa. The Alternative for Germany party (AfD) put up several posters of this painting with the slogan, "So that Europe won't become Eurabia."

A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters – setting their bail at $1 million each – for allegedly rioting in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man. Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd. The overnight violence came on the heels of the death of Ricardo Munoz, the mentally ill 27-year-old who was seen on body cam footage charging at a cop with a knife in hand. The officer shot and killed Munoz Sunday afternoon outside his mother’s house in downtown Lancaster.

Who cares about Trump’s tax returns? 34 replies
Posted by StormCnter 9/28/2020 11:39:42 AM Post Reply
Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump’s tax affairs are opaque? Or that he is not as rich as he claims? Is it really all that horrifying that he has for years claimed business losses in order to offset his significant income tax liability? Does it appall us that the Trump family used a Delaware-based consulting group to pay themselves? Of course not. The New York Times’s big Trump tax files splash on Sunday is therefore something of a flop. It is well-timed — an election is fast-approaching and the story might give Biden a good attack line in the big TV debate on Tuesday night.

The study for Tatler magazine also showed that the majority of participants believe Meghan Markle, who is an American citizen, should not be commenting on US politics. The poll, which was gathered last month by research consultancy Savanta Comres, polled 4,174 British adults and only included results from those who expressed an opinion when questioned.

Jill Biden, wife of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, waved off a question about her husband’s frequent gaffes from CNN’s Jake Tapper during a segment Monday, informing him he “can’t go there.”“Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe,” Tapper began, before being cut off. (Video) “Oh, you cannot even go there,” Jill Biden responded, as Tapper chuckled. “After Donald Trump you cannot even say the word ‘gaffe.’” (Tweet/Video) “Well, that’s what I wanted…I can’t even say the word ‘gaffe’?” Tapper responded.“Nope. Done. It’s gone,” Jill Biden interjected. “The gaffe issue is over,” Tapper pressed.“Over. So over,” Jill Biden declared.

Apparently, nothing is sacred with Meghan Markle and her man-on-the-string, Prince Harry. After telling us how privacy-obsessed they were, with Harry weeping sob stories about his mom and the papparazzi, and even suing some media companies for their intrusions, as well as leaving their high-vis rented mansion in the Hollywood Hills for more sedate (but pricier) Montecito, they've now decided to go full frontal, back for the cameras, making themselves the stars of some reality TV. No kidding, it's a project with Netflix cameras following them around. Seems they like themselves those cameras. According to the Daily Mail:

Chris Wallace, the host of “Fox News Sunday” and moderator of the first presidential debate between President Trump and Joe Biden, said that he hopes to remain as “invisible as possible” during their faceoff on Tuesday in Cleveland, Ohio. “I’m trying to get them to engage…to focus on the key issues…to give people at home a sense of why they want to vote for one versus the other,” he said. “If I’ve done my job right, at the end of the night, people will say, ‘That was a great debate, who was the moderator?’”

The release of a joint report by the Senate committees on homeland security and finance raised important questions about obviously unethical foreign profiteering by members of the Biden family. In particular, former Vice President Joe Biden’s ne’er-do-well son Hunter received a remarkable amount of money from highly suspect foreign entities, including ones controlled by the Chinese government. On at least one occasion, the elder Biden appears to have directly facilitated his son’s tawdry dealings. On another, the current Democratic presidential nominee ignored an obvious appearance of a conflict of interest that compromised the moral authority of U.S. diplomacy.

The New York Times is undoubtedly pleased that it published more than two decades’ worth of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The self-congratulations are premature. The Times’ article reveals that Trump was telling the truth all along about his audit. We can also see that Obama’s policies benefitted rich people. Finally, because the policies show how our complicated progressive tax system will always benefit rich people with good accountants, the Times unwittingly advanced the argument for a flat tax.

Rejecting concerns from doctors and parents, Gov. Gavin Newsom celebrated the signing of a bill that allows gender clinics to provide transgender drugs and surgery known to sterilize children and adults. Newsom praised the new law for “strengthening protections for LGBTQ+ Californians” and providing an “additional step forward” in “our march towards equality,” in an announcement over the weekend. “Governor Newsom is ignoring the heartbreak his policies will unleash,” said Jonathan Keller, President of California Family Council. “AB 2218 opens the door to drugs and surgeries causing irreversible damage, risking life-long sterility for young people.”

It was two weeks before anyone spoke of the hay bales. This was odd, said Rachel Rowland, of Flint Hill, Va. — because the locals had certainly seen them: The display is 170 feet wide. Wrapped in glinting white plastic, the bales are stacked atop a rolling mountain hillside along Route 211, relaying their message to any nearby resident who drives to the closest grocery store. “Farmers for Trump 2020,” the bales say, hand-painted with red and blue capital letters. “Keep America Great.”

Johnny Rotten aka John Lydon has been open about his support for Trump and Brexit for some time now—but fans of the Sex Pistols and the former punk legend are still disappointed. Lydon, 64, has long been associated with anarchist views and he's managed to get people talking again. A tweet showing the "God Save the Queen" singer wearing a pro-Donald Trump 'Make America Great Again' T-shirt has gone viral on Twitter this week, with one former fan decrying his idol's political views.
