    The Wall Street Journal ^ | June 11, 2019 | Natalie Andrews and Lindsay Wise
    Mr. Bogren, a Kalamazoo-based lawyer, was nominated for the Western District of Michigan judgeship in March by the Trump administration. But Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Josh Hawley of Missouri and Thom Tillis of North Carolina all voiced objections to Mr. Bogren’s nomination . . . Republicans objected to Mr. Bogren’s recent writings in a case in which he was defending East Lansing, Mich. The city barred a Catholic couple from participating in the farmers market over their opposition to hosting same-sex marriages on their farm, and the couple sued. In defending the city, Mr. Bogren compared the couple’s...
  • Hawley, Cruz urge Trump to nix judicial nominee who compared Catholic beliefs to KKK views

    06/02/2019 5:23:10 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 20 replies
    Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz — both Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee — are calling on President Trump to withdraw the nomination of a lawyer for a lifetime federal court appointment, accusing the nominee of opposing religious freedom and expressing anti-Catholic views. The nomination of Michael S. Bogren, a Michigan lawyer who was nominated to be a district judge for the District Court for the Western District of Michigan, has been met with fierce conservative resistance for the candidate’s likening of religious beliefs to the racist views of the Ku Klux Klan. Hawley, a Missouri Republican and...
  • Meet The GOP Senator Who Wants To Eradicate Social Media Companies

    Social media companies, whose base of operations are on the Left Coast and operated by staff who are almost universally left wing, are squeezing conservatives. There have been some pretty glaring examples of bias, specifically the whole notion being accounts being suspended on Twitter for entirely arbitrary reasons. Yes, Facebook banned Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam for his long history of bigoted remarks, like calling Jewish people termites, but his account wasn’t suspended on Twitter. Oh, and even without using examples of bias, Twitter itself admits that the environment is so left wing that conservative employees cannot speak...

    FULL TITLE: Missouri Senate green-lights ANOTHER strict abortion bill as lawmakers follow Alabama's near-total ban with cutoff at eight weeks of pregnancy Missouri's Republican-led Senate has passed a wide-ranging bill to ban abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy, acting only hours after Alabama's governor signed a near-total abortion ban into law. The Missouri bill needs another vote of approval in the GOP-led House before it can go to Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who voiced support for an earlier version Wednesday. It includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors would face five to...

    RUSH: Folks, you have to hear this. Our old buddy Jim Rutenberg. Now, you’ve heard me mention Rutenberg. When I first heard of Jim Rutenberg, he was a media columnist at the New York Times. And he was one of the few reporters at the New York Times which reported on me, Rush H. Limbaugh III, and this program not just fairly, but accurately and honestly. That is so unusual that we always note it when it happens in the Drive-By Media. And Rutenberg has always been, when I have made it into stories that he has written, I’ve always...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is working behind the scenes to boost the prospects of Neomi Rao, one of his former law clerks, to serve on a powerful federal appeals court in Washington — speaking privately with at least two Republican senators as she faces a contentious confirmation fight. Sen. Josh Hawley (Mo.) who publicly questioned how Rao would rule on issues such as abortion before supporting her in a key vote Thursday, disclosed this week that he had called Thomas. The justice has also phoned Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), a sometimes deciding voice on controversial nominees. “He called me...

    American Greatness ^ | February 2nd, 2019 | Joseph Duggan
    The struggle between Trump and the woefully large number of pre-Trump Republicans in the Senate is not really about the true constitutional separation of powers. McConnell and crew are not standing up for the rightful power of the legislative branch as the Framers intended; they are shilling for the Iron Triangle. Freshmen senators seem to find out early how to win the good graces of the liberal media and the permanent bureaucracy. Barely four weeks into their tenure, every new GOP senator—Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Kevin Cramer (N.D.), Josh Hawley (Mo.), Martha McSally (Ariz.), Rick Scott (Fla.), and...

    McCaskill, Cordray 'freed from constraints' of not being able to say what they really think. Losing Democratic politicians say they can finally tell the truth now that they are "freed from the constraints" of needing the support of their constituents. "It occurred to me that I am now freed from the constraints of running for or holding public office," said Richard Cordray, failed coup-leader and losing candidate in the Ohio governor's race. Cordray says now that he does not have to be accountable to voters, he can "speak more naturally" about what he really thinks about issues.

    One of the top abortion activists in the Senate has gone down in defeat. Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill fell behind to pro-life candidate Josh Hawley after announcing her opposition to U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and ultimately she lost her re-election bid today. A pro-abortion Democrat, McCaskill was considered one of the most vulnerable senators running for re-election in the November midterms. Josh Hawley, an attorney and former clerk to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, serves as Missouri’s attorney general. Prior to his time as the top prosecutor for the state, he was an appellate litigator and senior...

    If the volume of early and absentee voting is any indication of voter interest in this election, polling places in the counties in the suburbs of St. Louis, Mo., will be packed Tuesday. Rich Chrismer, the long-time elections director in St. Charles County, said Monday his team had already seen 11,000 walk-in voters compared to the typical 2,000. Mail-in absentee ballots, he said, were also way up. "It almost looks like a presidential election," said Mr. Chrismer, who said voters in his county were motivated by the battle over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the tight race...

    COLUMBIA (AP) — Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill has approvingly evoked former President Ronald Reagan. She said she would back President Donald Trump if he stopped a migrant caravan at the border. And speaking on Fox News, she has decried "crazy Democrats." What is the Democratic senator up to? The vulnerable incumbent is appealing to the right in a bid to win a third term in a state that Trump won by 19 percentage points in 2016. She's betting a more centrist message will resonate with independents and moderate Republican voters she desperately needs to beat Republican challenger Josh Hawley, who...

    Josh Hawley, the Republican candidate for Senate in Missouri, on Saturday, demanded an FBI probe of a dirty-tricks campaign mailer that wrongly accuses him of opposing gun rights. The mailers urge voters to back a Libertarian or Independent voter over Mr. Hawley and do not include required disclaimers identifying who paid for them. “Voters telling me about fake & illegal mailers pro-Dem group is putting out. There should be an FBI investigation,” Mr. Hawley, the state attorney general, wrote on Twitter. He called for Democrat incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill to cooperate in a probe.

    “To the barricades, comrades!” That could be Nancy Pelosi’s battle cry come November . . . if you believe Malcolm Nance, that is. Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, terrorism analyst Nance raised the specter of Russian meddling with the Dems’ “blue wave” in the 2018 elections, suggesting the Ruskies might even resort to “direct messing with the ballots.” Nance said that such meddling: “would be tantamount to setting the grounds for civil war. Really, to be quite honest.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Democratic Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill sparked a fierce backlash from a Democratic legislator in her home state after listing her as an example of a “crazy Democrat.” In a scathing series of tweets on Monday and Tuesday, Missouri Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal referred to McCaskill as “Dixie Claire,” described her as a “piece of shit,” compared her to a slave owner and accused “McCaskill and her racist democratic friends” of alienating the party’s base voters. McCaskill raised eyebrows in the final weeks of the midterm campaign by running a radio ad that described McCaskill as “not one of those...

    In the final stretch of a tight Senate race in increasingly red Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill turned against her own party in a new campaign radio ad that declares she is “not one of those crazy Democrats.” The unusual message has been hitting the airwaves in central Missouri for about a week, and it debuted as Republican challenger Josh Hawley’s internal campaign polls showed him taking a 7-percentage-point lead in a race that for months has been a dead heat.

    Call it a highly biased opinion hit piece disguised as a news report in the October 19 Kansas City Star. In fact, your humble correspondent had to check the home page of that periodical to make sure it wasn't listed as "Opinion" but, no, it was listed under their "Latest News" section. I am referring to the article (really opinion hit piece) about the October 18 Senate debate in Missouri between incumbent Claire McCaskill and challenger Josh Hawley written by a reporter with a looooong history of over-the-top liberal bias, Melinda Henneberger. Her blatant bias becomes all too evident by the second paragraph...

    Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri has demanded that a special prosecutor be appointed to investigate a sting operation that exposed previously secret alleged ties to Planned Parenthood and various gun-control-advocacy groups. McCaskill’s campaign manager David Kirby called on her Republican Senate challenger Josh Hawley, the sitting Missouri attorney general, to appoint a special prosecutor to launch an investigation into the video-surveillance operation that captured her staffers discussing tactics used to conceal Planned Parenthood’s financial support for their campaign. “We have reason to believe that fraud has been committed against our campaign,” Kirby told reporters Wednesday. “There’s no question that the...
