supports Trump filling SCOTUS vacancy 0 replies
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham reversed earlier statements on Saturday and said he will support “any effort” by President Trump to seat another Supreme Court justice. The support came as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told his GOP caucus to “keep your powder dry” in regard to filling the seat left vacant by Justice Ruth Bader GInsburg’s death on Friday. Separately, Maine Sen. Susan Collins said, “The decision should be made by the president who is elected on November 3rd.” In a series of tweets, Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said, “The two biggest changes regarding the Senate and judicial confirmations
Possible ‘Obstacle’ to Stop McConnell from
Replacing Ginsburg 26 replies
Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called on Senate Democrats to use every possible “procedural obstacle” to stop Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from replacing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” Clinton said, “The Democrats who are in the Senate will have to use every single possible maneuver that is available to them to make it clear that they are not going to permit Mitch McConnell to enact the greatest travesty, a monument to hypocrisy that would arise from him attempting to fill this position.
Photo Op, Homeowners Shred Them 26 replies
On Tuesday, in an article I wrote titled, “Gavin Newsom Needs to Be Less of an Instagram Influencer, More of a Governor,” I was heavily critical of California Governor Gavin Newsom in using people’s tragedy as a platform for his agenda, likely without the permission of the people had lost everything: “Most recently, “candid” (see: staged) photos were taken of him chillin’ near the ashes and debris where someone’s house once stood. Decked out like he was headed down the runway at a fashion event, perfectly manicured hands and sculpted hair, the governor likely didn’t have permission from those property owners

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —
Wild winds wreaked havoc in Albuquerque, New Mexico during a recent storm. Trees were pulled up from the roots, power went out for thousands — and a port-a-potty was seen blowing down the road. Wait. What? A viewer from sister station KOAT caught the spectacle on camera. The port-a-potty was seen blowing down the street on Sept. 8. At this time, there is no word on where the port-a-potty came from. No injuries were reported, but there’s no word on what kind of mess it made when it finally came to a stop. Watch the video to see it for yourself.

Perfect 4 replies
On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump took part in a town hall event produced by ABC News’ “20/20” program called “The President and the People,” which featured undecided voters from across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania asking the president questions. Towards the end of the 90-minute special, a young woman rose from the audience to ask her question — and the way Pres. Trump answered her destroys any narrative the Left could conjure that calls him uncaring or a racist. Host George Stephanopoulos introduced her this way: “The next one comes Flora [sic] Cruceta. She’s from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She has not voted before because she just became a citizen.

Are The Police?’ 25 replies
The Democrat-controlled Minneapolis City Council is reportedly panicking as violent crime is surging throughout the city after they called for defunding the police department following the death of George Floyd in late May. During a two-hour Minneapolis City Council meeting on police reform, “council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults and shootings,” MPR News reported. “The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data.
Found In ‘Mislabeled’ Bin 2 Months Later 9 replies
County officials in New Jersey tallied more than 1,600 uncounted ballots from the state’s July primary after finding them in a bin last Thursday. The votes were reportedly placed in a “mislabeled” bin in a “secure area” of the county election office, according to the New Jersey Herald. Sussex County Board of Elections Administrator Marge McCabe maintained that the 1,666 extra votes did not change the outcome of the July 7 primary race. “The Board of Elections is confident that all ballots received have been processed and the security of all the ballots has remained in place,” she said. The Trump campaign has been tussling in court with New Jersey since August
probe after whistleblower complaint 3 replies
The Department of Homeland Security is requesting that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff narrow the scope of his now-expanded probe into the agency’s response to police brutality protests this summer, arguing the investigation had become unreasonably broad. In a letter dated Monday obtained by The Post, Beth Spivey, assistant secretary for DHS’ legislative affairs office, rejected a request from Schiff (D-Calif.) for 11 new interviews with department officials and slammed the investigation as a whole. “Your letter, which was transmitted on a Friday afternoon, demands that witnesses who have previously agreed to come before you on a separate narrowly scoped matter this week now be prepared to answer questions —

77-year-old Joe Biden on Tuesday made no sense during his roundtable event with veterans in Tampa, Florida. Biden wore a mask while he spoke even though only 6 others participated and they were all several feet away from each other. At one point Biden began to ramble about the ladies department…you know, the thing! “Cause if you could take care, if you were a quartermaster, you can sure in hell take care runnin’ a, you know, a department store uh, thing, you know, where, in the second floor of the ladies department or whatever, you know what I mean?” Biden said. Got it?

Joe Biden traveled to Florida on Tuesday to pander to the Latino community as he loses support from Hispanic voters. Biden traveled to Kissimmee after holding a disaster roundtable event with veterans in Tampa. Ricky Martin and Eva Longoria were at the Kissimmee event desperately trying to help Biden connect to the Latino community as the former VP arrived almost two hours late for his speech. Then this happened… After being introduced by Puerto Rican-American singer Luis Fonsi, Joe Biden pulled out his phone and started playing Despacito ahead of his remarks kicking off Hispanic Heritage Month. “Despacito” means “slowly” — perfect for Slow Joe!
Trump for almost a year 45 replies
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended how she has handled her relationship with President Trump — after it was pointed out that the two leaders haven’t spoken in almost a year amid mounting crises. Speaking to MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying “Forget him” while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief’s rhetoric and narrative. Melvin noted to the nation’s highest elected Democrat that, “with all due respect, you just said, ‘Forget him.’” “Yeah, forget him,” she responded. The MSNBC host then asked if she and the president had “just stopped talking? Is that where we are?” “You haven’t talked to him about the wildfires,
female deputy’s courage 6 replies
Within a very short time, we knew a lot about the Compton shooting of two deputies. We knew that witnesses to the shooting celebrated and did nothing to help; that Black Lives Matter descended on the hospital, hoped for the deputies’ deaths, tried to storm the Emergency Department, and blocked ambulances; and that no one in the Democrat party, from Biden down, called out Black Lives Matter for fomenting this anti-police terrorism, with some actually supporting it. What we did not know until today was that the female deputy showed extraordinary presence of mind, competence, and courage. There were two deputies in the car,
