  • Democrats resigned that Amy Coney Barrett confirmation is inevitable: 'We can't stop the outcome'

    As much as Democrats detest the confirmation process of Judge Amy Coney Barrett -- panning the election year effort as illegitimate, dangerous and rife with hypocrisy--- they've acknowledged there's little they can do to stop her lifelong ascension to the Supreme Court. With Republicans holding the Senate majority and seemingly having the votes to confirm Barrett, Democrats say they don't have a silver bullet to stop the fast-tracked confirmation schedule that will kick off Monday. "There's no procedural move that I'm aware of that allows the minority to slow this process down at all," said Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del. "And...
  • Reporter on Hot Mic After Docs Say Trump is Improving: ‘This Wasn’t as Fun as Yesterday’

    Doctors at Walter Reed gave everyone good news on President Donald Trump’s health on Sunday after he went in for treatment for COVID-19. Well, one reporter didn’t think it was good news. A hot mic picked up one reporter saying, “That wasn’t as much fun as yesterday.” It’s like they wanted him to get it really bad (hopefully none of them hoped he would die) in order to say I TOLD YOU SO!

    A former top US health official has told Congress the country could face its "darkest winter in modern history" because of the coronavirus. Rick Bright led the government agency trying to develop a vaccine, but was removed from his post last month. He has previously said he was ousted from the job for raising concern over a treatment being touted by President Donald Trump. The US leader dismissed him as a "disgruntled" employee.

    He then took the Band-Aid approach with Todd and told him: “President is going to get acquitted. That's going to be it.” But Todd could not get over it and repeated the question to NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker. “What's he going to do with acquittal,” he asked. Before Welker could begin to answer him, he shared his fear. “He already has—He’s at the Super Bowl ad. I'm sure he's going to -- God only knows what he's going to say in that if he gets acquitted.”
  • Biden: Surviving Impeachment Will ‘Probably’ Make Trump ‘Stronger and Harder to Beat’

    Breitbart ^ | 01/22/2019 | Ian Hanchett
    While speaking in Iowa on Wednesday, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden predicted that if President Trump survives the Senate’s impeachment trial, he will likely be “stronger and harder to beat” but Congress doesn’t have any choice, and has to uphold its “constitutional responsibility.” Biden said, “I always get asked the question, well, isn’t the president going to be stronger and harder to beat if he survives this? The answer is yes, probably. But, the Congress has no choice. They have a constitutional responsibility. And the people who vote the way they may vote are going to...

    American Thinker ^ | December 27, 2019 | Gary Gindler
    What is the level of happiness among modern American leftists about the impeachment of President Trump? Do they celebrate this Christmas gift on the streets? (Sorry, my fellow collectivists, there is no attempt here to offend you with the word “Christmas”). One would assume that leftists do celebrate the event, but the reality is quite different and more complex. ... What is going on? One could understand that intraspecific competition among leftists is fierce, but who would predict most of American leftists unite against not only Trump, but their fellow comrades-in-ideological-arms – Democrats? Leftists still are not able to decide...

    This entire article is a lie, in addition to being about trivial things. Their suggestion is that Trump has stopped social mixing in DC. That's nonsense. Trump people aren't going out to these parties because they get "confronted." The media cheers when Senators and Secretaries are driven out of restaurants by antifa. Who wants to take a chance that these lunatics call their antifa buddies and let them know that a Trump Commerce official is present and ready to be beaten? Donald Trump Has Drained the Swamp (of Good Christmas Parties) Elites and D.C. establishment types are nostalgic for the...

    The Atlantic ^ | Sept 26, 2019 | David A. Graham
    When Donald Trump stepped to the dais at the United Nations General Assembly yesterday, he had a speech full of sharp lines: swipes at socialism, assertions of nationalism versus globalism, harsh words for Iran. Though Trump doesn’t enjoy delivering scripted remarks, he sounded listless, tired, and bored even by his own standards, struggling through the speech. The president had a good reason to be distracted. The same morning, he had spoken on the phone with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, trying to stem a growing tide of Democratic demands for his impeachment. According to NBC’s Heidi Przybyla, Trump asked Pelosi whether there...

    No one in the Trump administration has any credibility left By Paul Waldman Opinion writer January 8 at 2:56 PM Something curious is happening right now: The president of the United States will give a prime-time address on an urgent political controversy, and pretty much everyone acknowledges that in that address he is going to lie to the American people. The TV networks, which often have aired such speeches when the president asks, are struggling to figure out how to handle it; they seem to have decided that allowing a Democratic response, plus some post-hoc fact-checking, will fulfill their journalistic...

    Something old, something new, something borrowed, something filled with the coagulating blood of one’s enemies. The Trump household apparently wasn’t content turning the White House into a dark alternate dimension where all hope dies for just one year—this house of horrors has now become an annual holiday tradition. The White House has shared an official look at First Lady Melania Trump’s latest holiday decor at the White House. Last year, Mrs. “Be Best” turned the hallways of the presidential residence into a living nightmare straight out of Get Out or Voldemort’s bathroom. Shadowy branches crept over the walls, reaching forth...

    Full title: Yes, Democrats have won the House but behind Pelosi's soaring rhetoric is THIS harsh political reality As word trickled out Tuesday night that Democrats had recaptured the House, likely Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California wasted no time in celebrating the moment. “Tomorrow will be a new day in America,” she proclaimed. But beyond Pelosi’s soaring rhetoric is a harsh political reality: the power to shape the country no longer rests in the House. Instead, the waning influence of America’s legislature is concentrated in the Senate. And unless Democrats can take back the upper chamber, Tuesday’s victory is...

    A newly released psychological study shows that some students are exhibiting symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder following the 2016 election. The study revealed that of 769 students at Arizona State University studying psychology in January and February 2017, 25 percent of them reported experiencing “clinically significant” levels of stress after completing a psychological assessment known as the the Impact of Event Scale. The assessment, which had been adjusted to take into account the 2016 election, indicated that students’ average stress score was similar to those of witnesses of a mass shooting seven months after the incident. “What we were...

After issuing a call to action for Democratic voters, Mystal wondered if “this reign that they now have control over all three branches of government, we’re going to see if this reign lasts for 30 days or two years or a thousand-year reich.”

    Human beings might have to cope with an increasing amount of venomous bites, stings, and other brush ups with poison due to climate change. That’s according to a new study, coming at the same time that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report warning that negative impacts from a warming world are coming faster than expected. According to a massive new analysis of poisonous or venomous aquatic animals, dangerous species might become increasingly common in new ranges. Species whose ranges might shift polewards due to warmer water include lionfish, sea snakes, crown-of-thorns starfish and a number of...

    On Friday morning, Senator Susan Collins of Maine said that she would declare later that afternoon whether she would confirm or oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. For the women who opposed Judge Kavanaugh, many of whom had traveled to Washington from all over the country, her decision was their last hope. By 2:30 p.m., half an hour before she was due to announce her decision, Collins’s office on the fourth floor of the Dirksen Senate building was filled with protesters, most of them women, and members of the press. The crowd was overflowing into the...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her, cannot move back to her home due to the volume of death threats she is still receiving, her lawyers told NBC on Sunday. One of Ford's attorneys, Debra Katz, told NBC's Kasie Hunt that it's going to be "quite some time" before Ford and her family can return home. "Her family has been through a lot," Katz said. "They are not living at home. It’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending. It’s...

    Associate Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan said Friday she fears the high court may lack a justice going forward who would serve as a swing-vote on cases, speaking hours after President Trump's second nominee Brett Kavanaugh secured enough votes to be confirmed. Kagan said at a conference for women at Princeton University that over the past three decades, starting with Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and continuing with Justice Anthony Kennedy, that there was a figure on the bench "who found the center or people couldn't predict in that sort of way." “It’s not so clear, that I think going forward,...

    The Los Angeles Progressive ^ | September 4, 2018 | Ralph E. Shaffer, professor emeritus of history at Cal Poly Pomona.
    As President Donald Trump packs the Supreme Court with justices adhering to his fundamentalist brand of social conservatism, the return to an era in American history when questionable religious standards were the law of the land in most states is fast approaching. Women, ethnic minorities, and gays are about to undergo a reversal of the gains made by decisions of the high court since the 1950s. In less than two years, Trump has taken the opportunity to nominate two staunch social conservatives to the court. Justice Neil Gorsuch merely filled the vacancy created by the sudden death of Antonin Scalia,...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Many supporters of President Donald Trump saw 2016 as a do-or-die election. Now, Democrats are increasingly showing that they think the same thing about 2018. In The Daily Caller News Foundation’s fact check videos, Anders Hagstrom highlights claims from politicians and the media alike, setting the record straight on double standards and mischaracterizations. TheDCNF has torn down former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s infamous and much-peddled 17 intelligence agencies claim and exposed the liberal media for running damage control for Hamas.
