Psst! Where are we probably headed? A fight about recusal.

I’ve read lots of notably vague “battle plans” and delaying tactics for Democrats to employ against Republicans’ plans to confirm a replacement justice for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  To be frank, the talk is largely masturbatory because the Republicans have the necessary votes.  There is one immediate hope: a disqualifying scandal could arise regarding Trump’s first nominee.  In…

The Reality of never being here before. I feel like it is 1860

Get ready people because the reality of losing our democracy is real.   I said this in 2016 and people scoffed.  It is a reality.   The sides are lining up.  Brother against brother, Mother against child, husband against wife.  This may even be worse than 1860 considering the people of that era were not as connected…

thoughts on the President's attempted electoral coup – UPDATE AT END

There are a number of issues to address, but let me start with this, from the 14th Amendment: But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members…

Is Louisville an “anarchist jurisdiction” because Rule of Law failed by not indicting killer cops

In revisionist history, perhaps the Union troops hunting down John Wilkes Booth were only interested in him because of some ‘wanton endangerment’. We do know who’s a snake in these counterfactual historical narratives. x For sure! It’d be like charging John Wilkes Booth for shooting recklessly inside a crowded theater. https://t.co/aWKbLC3uGn— Laurence Tribe (@tribelaw) September…

Trump CAUGHT RED-HANDED Lying About Biden Using a Teleprompter

Catching Donald Trump in a bald-faced lie is about as difficult as bench pressing a pool noodle. Washington Post fact-checkers have already caught him telling more than 20,000 lies since his inauguration. However, there are times when his fabrications are so distant from reality that they require special attention, because they reveal the extreme lengths…

Never Ceases to Amaze Me…

It took credible evidence and the words of the self-identified victims of underage sexual advances, to allow Doug Jones to defeat Roy Moore for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions in 2017. Mr. Jones deserved to win the race on integrity alone. Confirmed in 1997 as the United States Attorney for the Northern…

Not So Fast On That Trump EC Coup

There’s a diary on top of the rec list right now that’s based on a story in the Atlantic, that Trump might try to take advantage of a clause in the Constitution that says the electors shall be chosen ‘in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct.’ If Trump is behind in the electoral…

Ron Johnson Senate probe flops, actually reinforces impeachment findings

Ron Johnson and his 2019 Fourth of July visit to Russia has revealed that surprise, surprise, FAIL. Rather, he’s reinforced the actual Trump Impeachment investigation and instead affirmed that the “‘Hunterghazi’ tale has been widely debunked.” In reality, Burisma was not even being investigated at the time, and the vice president was working to oust that…

Dr. Fauci is clearly out of f's when it comes to Rand Paul

Rand Paul is a physician, but it often looks like he got his medical degree from the Ben Carson School of Not Paying Attention to Things — because he does not appear to know what he’s talking about. And Dr. Anthony Fauci — you know, that guy who’s a world-renowned expert on infectious diseases — is…
