to block Senate committee hearings 0 replies
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer invoked the “two-hour rule” Tuesday, a measure that constrains the scheduling and duration of Senate committee meetings. The move is intended to retaliate against Republicans, who have agreed to vote on confirming President Trump’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. Under the rule, no Senate committee or subcommittee can meet after the Senate has been in session for two hours or after 2 p.m.(Snip)”We invoked the two-hour rule because we can’t have business as usual when Republicans are destroying the institution as they have done,” Schumer told reporters.
help Florida felons vote 12 replies
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Just days after after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won a court victory to keep felons from voting until they’ve paid off fines, restitution and court fees, billionaire Mike Bloomberg has stepped in to help them pay off the debts.(Snip)A federal appellate court ruled on Sept. 11 that in addition to serving their sentences, Florida felons must pay all fines, restitution and legal fees before they can regain their right to vote. The case could have broad implications for the November elections. Florida has 29 electoral college votes that are crucial to President Donald Trump’s hopes of staying in the White House.
The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gives conservatives and Republicans what they claim to have wanted since judicial activism became the norm in the 1960s. From outlawing prayer and Bible reading in public schools, to the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion, conservative Republicans have yearned for a time when a Republican president and Republican majority Senate might put an end to judges making law and return to the day when Congress was the legislator.(Snip)Senators who do not like President Trump’s personality, but agree with many of his policies, should swallow their pride and vote to change the Supreme Court back to
fascist, of a Brownshirt, of a
totalitarian’ amid SCOTUS battle 4 replies
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., spoke like a fascist when he vowed that “nothing is off the table” if President Trump goes forward with a nomination to replace late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin. “What the president is doing is traditional and constitutional,” Levin, a former Reagan Justice Department official, said at the opening of Monday’s edition of “The Mark Levin Show”.(Snip) “The Constitution determines what’s on the table,” he continued, adding that Democrats’ ultimate goal–amid their threats and intimidation–is to create the conditions to give them permanent control of the United States and its government.

The Rev. Franklin Graham plans to lead a prayer march in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 26, saying the only hope for the United States is God. Asked what prompted him to call for this event, Graham told The Western Journal, “I think the chaos we see in our country. The anarchy that we see in our streets.”(Snip) “And it seems like our country is out of control, and I feel that the only hope for our country is God,” Graham said.(Snip)The Christian argued the efforts of politicians and educators to keep God out of the nation’s affairs and mock people of faith
Fear of Trump Is All About China 8 replies
RUSH: Boy, I have a great piece today that I hope I’m able to do justice. Our buddy Lee Smith, who was one of the early journalists to expose the entire coup that was the Trump-Russia collusion story, is out with a piece that explains why the hatred for Trump. And it’s not so much hatred, he says, it’s fear.(Snip)He said we would not believe the number of Americans in the military, at the Pentagon–he names names–who have become independently wealthy via payments from China.(Snip)And here comes Trump attempting to inflict great harm on the ChiComs as an enemy of the U.S.,
Day Chaos — ‘We’re Going to Fight Like Hell’ 21 replies
Under the guise of seeking to “prevent a constitutional crisis,” a massive network of well funded left-wing activists and progressive groups are training, organizing, and planning to mobilize millions of Americans should President Trump “contest the election results,” refuse to concede, or claim an early victory.(Snip)The article states that what the Protect the Results leadership is planning “isn’t a run-of-the-mill protest” but rather “a national campaign capable of bringing millions of people into the streets,” potentially for months.(Snip)They are going to have to develop a durable movement that could operate like the democracy movement in Hong Kong or the movements that peacefully brought down Communist rule
RUSH: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, we gotta Biden and his appearance in Kissimmee, Florida. Whoever is allowing this to happen…they’re gonna pay a price for it.(Snip) Biden came out yesterday. He was two hours late. And he came out and played some song on his phone for 45 seconds. I’ve got the lyrics of the song, and it is flat-out weird what this guy was playing. I mean, the name of the song is “Despacito.” “I want to breathe your neck slowly. Let me tell you things in your ears so that you remember when you’re not with me.”
Preps for “Harris Administration” 4 replies
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I was in the midst here of doing what I always do in the morning before the program starts, and that is preparing it, engaged here in show prep, deeply focused.(Snip)Then you got Kamala Harris out there calling what’s becoming the Harris administration.(Snip) RUSH: All right. Now, the theory is that this was not a faux pas, that it was written, that it was purposely put on her prompter. And the reason that it was is so that she could acknowledge to all Democrat voters that, hey, we know Biden ain’t up for this, don’t sweat it, I’m gonna be in charge.
media as ‘a collection of liars’ 3 replies
Attorney General William Barr during a Friday interview with the conservative website Townhall.com excoriated the mainstream media, saying that many seek to accomplish partisan political aims rather than report the truth. “They’re basically a collection of liars,” Barr said according to Townhall. “Most of the mainstream media. They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect example of that were the riots.”(Snip)Barr during his scathing rebuke accused media members of practicing political partisanship. Their behavior is “destructive to our Republic,” he said.(Snip)Despite his fiery criticism, Barr also said that there are still some mainstream reporters producing quality journalism.
Grinding Christianity Down 15 replies
During a recent prayer session in support of Black Lives Matter, the pastor of St. Xavier Catholic Church in New York City instructed white congregants that they must renounce their white privilege to help “transform the church culture.” Using the noble cause of racial equality as a fig leaf, Black Lives Matter is in fact a violent political organization whose Marxist ideology is anti-Christian–and anti-American–in the most profound meaning of those terms. In many churches across America, cultural Marxists in the pulpit are quietly supplanting traditional Christian values with those of the hammer and sickle.
We Have a Duty To Vote Accordingly 7 replies
This year’s RNC featured some of the strongest and most powerful pro-life voices in American politics.(Snip)With Biden and Harris in office, pro-abortion groups will access the full powers of the administrative state to enforce their agenda—including legislating by memorandum and executive orders. We’ve seen it before with the legal battles over Obamacare’s contraceptive and abortion pill mandate. And with the possibility of a Democrat majority in the House and Senate in 2020, a potential Biden/Harris presidency would give Democrats an unobstructed path forward to enact their barbaric abortion measures. We have a moral obligation to stand in the gap and not allow them to push forward.
