Breonna Taylor: 2 police officers shot
amid protests in Louisville, Kentucky
Posted by Dreadnought 9/23/2020 9:34:55 PM Post Reply
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Two police officers were shot in Louisville as protests erupted in the Kentucky city and other demonstrations were planned in cities across the country in response to a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to not indict police officers on criminal charges directly related to Breonna Taylor’s death. A spokesman for the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department issued a brief statement to the Associated Press Wednesday night saying ‘’We currently have an officer shot. We'll update when we can.“ FOX News later confirmed with police that two officers had been shot. There were no immediate details provided on condition of the officers or the circumstances of the shooting.

Streets filled with protesters following the grand jury’s decision to not charge any of the three officers directly for the death of Taylor. Police in Louisville have set off flash bang devices to clear a square in that Kentucky city where several hundred people had gathered to protest. Police in riot gear
Democrats worry Feinstein can’t
handle Supreme Court battle
Posted by Dreadnought 9/23/2020 5:36:51 PM Post Reply
As the Senate prepares for yet another brutal Supreme Court nomination fight, one particularly sensitive issue is creating apprehension among Democrats: what to do with 87-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate, is widely respected by senators in both parties, but she has noticeably slowed in recent years. Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides show widespread concern over whether the California Democrat is capable of leading the aggressive effort Democrats need against whoever President Donald Trump picks to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
California's Gavin Newsom Ban's
Gas-Powered Vehicles, Effective 2035
Posted by Dreadnought 9/23/2020 5:12:42 PM Post Reply
California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that the state will ban sales of gas-powered vehicles, effective in 2035. Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045. Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market.
Breaking: Romney Says
Let’s Get This SCOTUS
Vote In Now; Update: 51

Alternate mainstream media headline, inspired by our colleague Guy Benson: Mitt Romney suddenly reverts to previous status as a dog-torturing venture capitalist. Or, alternate alternate headline, via Politico: Cocaine Mitch wins again. Sen. Mitt Romney said he would support a floor vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court, essentially clinching consideration of Trump’s nominee this year despite the impending election. Just two Republican senators have asked for the party to put the breaks on the confirmation. And with a 53-seat majority, Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) now has the votes he needs
Lindsey Graham: We’ve

Before the Election

Lindsey Graham put out a statement earlier regarding the open Supreme Court seat the Republicans are currently looking to fill. He cited the treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh back in 2018 while also confirming that he supports moving forward this time around. But it was later in the evening on Sean Hannity’s show that he really made news. Graham announced not only that hearings will be held, but that the GOP already has the votes lined up to confirm whoever the nominee is. This is big news which was largely confirmed by commitments made by Corey Gardner and Chuck Grassley
Reports: Woman suspected of
sending ricin-tainted package
to Donald Trump at White
House arrested at US-Canada border
Posted by Dreadnought 9/20/2020 9:16:40 PM Post Reply
A woman suspected of sending a package containing the poison ricin to the White House has been arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in New York, according to authorities. The package, addressed to President Donald Trump, was intercepted by federal authorities in the past week, a law enforcement official said Saturday. The woman was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Peace Bridge border crossing near Buffalo and is expected to face federal charges, three law enforcement officials told The Associated Press on Sunday.
Trump Says He’s Approved
Oracle Deal For U.S. Tiktok Operations

Donald Trump said he’s approved Oracle Corp.’s bid for the U.S. operations of TikTok “in concept,” a deal forced by the president’s orders last month declaring the popular video-sharing app a national security threat. “I have given the deal my blessing,” Trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Fayetteville, N.C. “I approved the deal in concept.” The Chinese government must now sign off on the transaction for it to go forward. The new company, which would be called TikTok Global,
Here's What RBG Said
About Filling a SCOTUS
Vacancy in an Election Year
Posted by Dreadnought 9/19/2020 4:03:48 PM Post Reply
As the debate over what to do about the vacancy on the Supreme Court is only getting started, perhaps we should heed the advice of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself as to what to do. When a similar scenario occurred four years ago, following the death of Antonin Scalia, the Republican-controlled Senate blocked Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. It was a controversial move, and Ginsburg had something to say about it: Ginsburg publicly called on the Senate to go through with the nomination. “That’s their job,” she said in July 2016. “There’s nothing in the Constitution
The Mob Is Already
Targeting Mitch McConnell,
and He Doesn’t Care

As I wrote earlier this morning, the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a massive political firebomb going off (see A Republican Party That Won’t Fill Ginsburg’s Seat Will Die, and It Will Have Deserved Its Death). Tensions are high as the GOP now has to decide whether it’s going to fulfill the duty it was elected to fulfill. In political terms, there is no choice to be made here except nominating a replacement and voting on that nomination before the election. Whether some Republicans are smart enough to realize that is an open question.
Authorities are investigating a
package sent – but not

that contained the poison ricin

A package addressed to President Donald Trump that tested positive for the poison ricin was intercepted by federal authorities in the past week, a law enforcement official said Saturday. The official said the FBI, Secret Service and U.S. Postal Service inspectors are investigating the source of the package. Mail addressed to the White House is screened at an off-site location. Ricin, a poison drawn from the husks of castor beans, has surfaced in other plots targeting Trump and other officials.
McConnell says Senate will
vote on Supreme Court
Posted by Dreadnought 9/18/2020 9:21:53 PM Post Reply
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that he will force a vote on whomever President Trump nominates to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, signaling a brutal fight later this year. Mr. McConnell did not lay out timing, but said flatly that “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.” Justice Ginsburg passed away Friday, with just weeks to go before the presidential election. She reportedly made a deathbed statement saying she wanted the seat to be filled by whoever wins in November.
