Pressure is on Newsom to quickly appoint
Feinstein’s temporary replacement

The death of Sen. Dianne Feinstein places Gov. Gavin Newsom under intense pressure to quickly name a replacement as a bitterly divided Congress votes on a spending plan in the coming hours to avert a government shutdown. Newsom had hoped to avoid the politically charged decision of selecting a second senator. But he will need to move swiftly as a budget standoff has the government on the verge of shutting down, and Senate Democrats could need every vote. The timing of Feinstein’s death — four months before a primary but more than a year before the end of her term


*Melanie Mason and Christopher Cadelago
Dems don't mourn for long. They are already jockeying to get her Senate seat. Since Gavvy already promised to appoint a black woman, the pickings are slim - unless he breaks his pledge.

Hunter Biden really, really wants the job. He can sell his paintings in his Senate field offices. He can bunk at dad's place until he finds suitable housing. For his DC office, he can hire his old 'flames'.

Don't be surprised if he just appoints Pelosi...One vote missing in the house right now is a whoooole lot less impactful than One "more" vote missing in the senate, particularly if Menendez gets quickly censured or forced out.. If Sinema and or Manchin announce that they will be caucusing with the Repubs? The entire Senate flips to Repub control. All new Chairs, all new schedules, all new committees.(even if only for a short time) It would be EPIC!

Newsom already said he would put a Black Woman in Dianne's Seat! Just what we need, one more Big Mouthed Black Woman who doesn't have a Clue what is going on and is in that seat ONLY because she is Black! Sounds like some of the Guys in the House want a chance to move up to the Senate. Should be a good Fight to watch!

Pressure is on to give it to the people who have paid for it- which is every one of them. When everyone in the gang wants it and there’s only one thing to give away, that’s a lot of pressure. Poor gavvy. Not enough gravy to slop up everybody.

First of all qualifications is off the list so that makes it easier. Then he has to scout around for someone or something so they can be a "first". Maybe a black male who thinks he is a white woman. Or someone who is into identifying with a dog. That would be good. No wait, this is truly a first. A black female midget who does not identify as any sex (I am sure there is a cute name for it) but dresses butch and performed in a circus sideshow (which is the same as working in the Senate) and steals other women's luggage. Wait, that's been done. Maybe she? could date a very tall white wnba basketball player. That would make for interesting photos. This might be easier than I thought. After all we are talking about California, the land of nuts.

CA is a state run by Dems. He can appoint anyone he wants, and the voters will still vote for Dems. They may grumble, but they won't leave the plantation. From what he has said so far, I believe he will appoint someone other than the three candidates that are being considered as front runners, as an interim candidate.

Meghan Markle is reportedly "in the running to fill Dianne Feinstein's California Senator seat" as the Duchess considers a run for office. According to a major Democratic donor close to Californian Governor Gavin Newsom, who is set to choose Feinstein's replacement, the possibility of the Duchess of Sussex running is not impossible. Although a long-shot replacement for the 90-year-old pioneer, there is speculation Meghan could serve out the remaining 13 months of Feinstein's term. A source told the Mail on Sunday: "Meghan is definitely a long-shot but in the craziness that is US politics these days it's not an impossibility.

The proposal, according to the agency, require non-weatherized gas furnaces and those used in mobile homes to achieve a far higher level of efficiency than cheaper models on the market.

London - One of Ukraine’s closest and most vocal allies has now said it will stop sending arms to Kyiv, a major reversal that threatens to upend Europe’s strategic relationship with the country as it wages a counteroffensive against Russia. Poland’s decision was both sudden and predictable, coming after months of tensions over a temporary ban on Ukrainian grain imports to a number of European Union countries. It also follows a pattern of increasingly confrontational behavior towards Kyiv from Poland’s government, just weeks before a tight general election. And it could have implications for Ukraine’s attempts to push Russian forces

Those dressed "inappropriately" face up to 10 years in jail under the bill, for which a three-year "trial" was agreed. It still needs to be approved by the Guardian Council to become law.

It’s official: Democrats make everything worse. It was a sentiment long felt by many in the country, but after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) recent decision to nix the Senate’s dress code and, in turn, obliterate the regard, respect, and dignity of the office, Schumer and the Democrats erased any doubt about ushering in societal rot and the nation’s decline. It’s an embarrassment, and every Democratic politician should be ashamed. And that includes Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA), believed to be the impetus for Schumer’s decision to eliminate the dress code.

While party voters lined up behind Biden in 2020 and are poised to do so again, they have some misgivings about the president, who is 80 years old and would be 82 at the start of a potential second term in 2025. In an August survey conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 69% of Democrats indicated that Biden would be too old to be effective for another term.

Kindergartners In diapers: A growing trend 26 replies

Apparently, there are an increasing number of kids, with no physical or cognitive disabilities whatsoever, who are entering kindergarten without being potty-trained. This is hard to fathom. In the past, the vast majority of children were fully potty trained around three years old, give or take a couple of months. However, today kindergarten teachers often report to We Are Teachers that 15-20% of their classroom is not potty-trained, and that even a few first-graders are still in Pull-Ups. (Again, this does not include kids with medical issues, or physical or cognitive disabilities.) Sadly, there is a growing trend of children reaching the age of five without being potty trained.
