    One year ago, Schumer incited a mob on the steps of the Supreme Court in order to bully justices to rule in Democrats' favor.nsible.” However, Sen. Josh Hawley’s efforts to censure Schumer for his violent threats were scuttled. The Washington Post write-up of Schumer’s threats focused instead on Republican opposition to them. “GOP seizes on Schumer’s remarks” read the headline. Schumer’s threats came just 17 months after the Supreme Court had been besieged and attacked by abortion activists upset at Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Like the Jan. 6 event, the October 2018 siege also involved Vice President Mike Pence being condemned by...
  • Chuck Schumer Urges Biden to Grab Power and Shred the Constitution

    If there were devices designed to measure the amount of political hypocrisy in the air, they’d be exploding all over the country. There’s a new party in control of D.C., which means everything that was bad is now good and vice versa. If you were quoting Thomas Jefferson on January 19th, you’re more a Hamiltonian today. Time to lift those draconian coronavirus shutdowns in California, Michigan, and other blue states; it turns out they’re hurting the economy! Travel bans aren’t xenophobic; they protect us! The procedural filibuster is a Jim Crow law! For four years, Democrats and their media portrayed...
  • How Mitch McConnell Can Preserve The Filibuster And With It A Republican Voice In The Senate

    Far from being a helpless minority, Senate Republicans are in a powerful position to leverage their consent for key priorities from their voters.In a Senate that is now split 50-50, newly minted Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his counterpart, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, are negotiating a power-sharing agreement. Although Vice President Kamala Harris wields the tie-breaking vote for Democrats on the Senate floor, the two parties must negotiate how they will manage the day-to-day operations of the institution. What McConnell agrees to in the upcoming days will tell us a lot about how the Senate GOP plans to comport itself...
  • In Praise of Mike Lindell

    Source: Photo courtesy of Mike LindellMy wife Lori and I spent part of our rainy weekend rewatching the awesome Hugh Jackman film The Greatest Showman, his musical tribute to the master entrepreneur and entertainer P.T. Barnum.Taking nothing away from Jackman’s show-stopping performance (or the fact the movie glosses over many of the controversial details of P.T.’s real-life past) Barnum paled in comparison to Mike Lindell, best-known from his wild TV commercials as the ubiquitous inventor of My Pillow.But Lindell is far more than just a showman and an entertainer. He’s a job creator, a philanthropist, a true American patriot, and...

    RUSH: You can find news stories. (Snort!) “News.” There isn’t any news. You can find, quote-unquote, “stories” in the media about the plan to impeach Trump now. I don’t know how widespread it is, but I’m telling you it’s real. There are people, a lot of maybe pundits, but you know as well as I do: It doesn’t matter where you find a leftist, they’re leftists. They’re either disguised as journalists or elected Democrats or what have you. So pundit, journalist, commentator, pick your poison. They are suggesting that Trump be impeached, that he is such a threat, that yesterday...
  • Congress May End Long Tradition of Not Convening on Sunday

    12/23/2020 7:52:13 AM PST · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | December 23, 2020 | Terry Jeffrey
    Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the president pro tempore of the Senate and the longest-serving Republican in that body, sent out a tweet last week lamenting the imminent demise of an ancient and admirable Senate tradition. "US Senate has NEVER convened a Congress on Sunday out of respect," said Grassley. "Not once in 231 yrs," he said. Grassley went on to note that the Constitution calls for Congress to convene its new sessions on Jan. 3 each year but also allows Congress to enact a law changing that date. Historically, in those years when Jan. 3 fell on a Sunday,...
  • Schumer Wants Biden to Transfer Wealth From Auto Mechanics to Harvard Grads

    Jim and Jill were born a little more than a year apart to the same unmarried mother in Southern California. Jim was adopted by a working-class family in the San Fernando Valley, where the father made his living as an auto mechanic and the mother as a maid. Jill was adopted by an upper-middle-class family in Pasadena, where the father was a lawyer and the mother stayed home. Jim was a decent high school student and football player -- but not good enough at either to win a college scholarship. When he graduated from 12th grade, his father encouraged him...
  • The Democrats Praise Their 'Big Tent'

    12/02/2020 3:08:11 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | December | Tim Graham
    The Democrats were tremendously disappointed with the election results. President Donald Trump is losing by almost exactly the 51 percent to 47 percent margin that Mitt Romney lost to then-President Barack Obama in 2012. The Senate is poised to stay in GOP hands, and the Republicans look to slice the Democratic House majority to about 10 seats. Instead of licking wounds, some are asserting that somehow, Democrats are still the stronger party with all the historical momentum. Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne Jr. wrote, "Democrats are a big-tent party, while Republicans are a closed circle." Dionne claimed, "For more than...

    As my RedState colleague Mike Miller reported this morning, the last ten days have not gone so well for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). The self-admitted socialist and her fellow extremist “Squad” members are being blamed for the shellacking House Democrats took on Election Day. The blame games have gotten so bad that AOC even hinted that she might walk away from politics sooner rather than later out of frustration . “It’s the lack of support from your own party. It’s your own party thinking you’re the enemy,” were among the many reasons she gave as to why. But though deflated,...

    Even as people spilled into the streets of Washington D.C. over the weekend to celebrate the proclaimed defeat of President Trump, political insiders on the Left were feeling a bit unsatisfied. This was supposed to be their year.  All the stars had aligned for that big blue wave to usher in their wildest progressive dreams.  No one doubts that Trump was polarizing.  He energized opposition unlike anyone before him and, thanks to the coronavirus, it wasn’t just his hyperactive Twitter feed that was the problem. The nation was struggling. The pandemic wreaked psychological havoc on the country and had destroyed...
  • Democrats' Complaints About the Coming Supreme Court Vote Don't Pass the Smell Test

    In case you didn't notice, our country is completely falling apart. There are so many problems that they are hard to list out at this point, but the biggest, by far, is the increasing animosity between Americans of different political persuasions. People think those on the other side are evil and need to be destroyed. There have always been views like that on the fringes, but the fringes have made huge advances and are now dominating our discourse. And it's not just discourse. We are seeing actual political violence on a scale not seen since the late 1960s. Most Americans...
  • The Democrats' Bogus Concern for SCOTUS 'Norms'

    09/25/2020 6:31:14 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | September 25, 2020 | David Harsanyi
    For those keeping track, here's a list of Democratic Party "norms" for placing new justices on the Supreme Court of the United States, as they stand today: Norm No. 1: When Democrats are in charge of both the Senate and the White House, they are free to nominate and confirm any justice they please, as quickly as they please, as they did in the cases of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Norm No. 2: When Democrats only run the White House, they are free to nominate any SCOTUS justice they please, and they also get...
  • Who's Violating Norms These Days?

    09/25/2020 6:11:45 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | September 25, 2020 | Michael Barone
    Norms, we are told, matter. Violating norms, recklessly disregarding norms -- these are charges on which President Donald Trump is often arraigned in the court of public opinion. The indictment starts with his annoying habit of inventing insulting nicknames for his opponents and critics. You can add to the list as you will and perhaps come up with enough names for a 700-plus-word newspaper column. But Trump hasn't been the only one disregarding norms of late. Consider the question of whether and when the president and Senate should fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The...

    "As everyone knows, I made it clear that my first choice for the Supreme Court will make history as the first African American woman justice." So Joe Biden promised. Since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, however, Biden has refused to produce a list of Black female judges and scholars whom he would consider for the now-vacant seat. What is his problem? Donald Trump had no such reluctance. In 2016, he listed a slew of candidates from among whom he promised to pick his justices. True to his word, Trump elevated federal appellate court judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett...
  • Supreme Court Fight Is About Life and Death

    Chuck Schumer, Senate minority leader, says, "Our No. 1 goal must be to communicate the stakes of this Supreme Court fight to the American people." He continued, "nothing is off the table." Nothing? Not even violence? After the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, members of the Trump administration were being assaulted in publics spaces, in restaurants. Sen. Schumer is right that the American people must know what's at stake. Will we have a culture of life and civility, or a culture of death, violence and chaos? The abortion rate in Schumer's own New York state stands the...
  • Rising Diversity Is Joe Biden's Worry, Too

    Is her racial diversity America's greatest strength? So we are told. Yet, even before America becomes a majority-minority nation, 25 years from now, recent changes in the composition of the country are going to impact both parties in 2020. According to Brookings Institution demographer William Frey, between 2010 and 2020, while America's population grew by 20 million, our white population fell for the first time since the 1790 census. White Americans fell as a share of the population in all 50 states, in 358 of 364 metropolitan areas, in 3,012 of 3,141 counties. During that same decade, our Black population...

    America is going through a bit of a rough patch right now. Over 100,000 dead courtesy of an invisible enemy from China. Massive layoffs and the closing, perhaps permanently, of countless small businesses across the country. Government compelled isolation imposed on the citizenry of the several states. A murdered American citizen on the streets of the once “Minnesota Nice” city of Minneapolis. To round all of this out, riots from coast to coast are inflicting untold economic, physical, and psychological damage on all Americans. It’s safe to say that, so far, the year 2020 has been the longest decade in...

    Why are some leaders so reluctant to admit that in the early days of the coronavirus crisis, they were slow to realize the seriousness of the threat? That's the charge leveled against President Trump daily. Just look at the number of times various critics have said he has "blood on his hands." Trump has denied responsibility, and has argued that rather than being slow off the mark, he was actually quick to respond. There is much angry debate on that point. What is clear now is that more than a few officials around the country were slow to act. And...
  • Coronavirus and 'The Beauty of Doing Nothing'

    “The beauty of doing nothing is that you can do it perfectly. Only when you do something is it almost impossible to do it without mistakes. Therefore people who are contributing nothing to society, except their constant criticisms, can feel both intellectually and morally superior.” Such masterful writing shines like a beacon, cutting through the swirling unintelligent abyss that is Twitter. Thomas Sowell’s words are, as always, both succinct and accurate, and are no more relevant to our lives than today. Not only are many of those who contribute nothing to society often the ones to be allocated the most...
