Amy Coney Barrett isn’t the only jurist on President Trump’s list of potential successors to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, but she is certainly the most feared by the left. This became clear in 2017, when Trump nominated her for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. During her Senate confirmation hearing, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee subjected her to a de facto inquisition, complete with outrageous inquiries concerning her Catholicism. Barrett’s response was eminently judicial: “It’s never appropriate for a judge to impose personal convictions, whether they derive from faith or anywhere else, on the law.”
by a Drug Test? 21 replies
The federal government mandates that millions of Americans submit to drug screenings to qualify for certain types of positions. This includes members of the military and other employees of the Department of Defense. Yet 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — a man who wants the voters to elect him Commander in Chief — called President Trump a fool on Monday for suggesting that they both submit to just a such a test before their first debate. Biden has responded equally defensively to requests that he produce a recent cognitive acuity test. This will inevitably cause voters to wonder what he’s hiding.
of the Washington Swamp 4 replies
It’s time to debate. After months of political posturing, Americans deserve to see President Trump and Joe Biden come face to face, explaining their policy platforms and outlining their visions for the future. But the Commission on Presidential Debates stands in the way. Created in 1987 with noble intentions, CPD’s purpose was to ensure that general election debates remain a part of the electoral process. However, as so often happens in Washington, D.C., the nonprofit organization has morphed into something quite different today: CPD is now an entrenched part of the Washington swamp, leveraging its bureaucratic presence to exert undue influence over presidential elections.
themselves be stabbed or shot 7 replies
If the nation’s police officers walked off the job today, it would be hard to blame them. Sunday’s anti-cop riots in Lancaster, Pa., have made the current de facto rules of engagement clear:Officers may never defend themselves against lethal force if their attacker is a minority. They should simply accept being shot or stabbed as penance for their alleged racism. In Lancaster, an officer responded to a domestic violence call at a residence where a man had stabbed four people last year. As the officer approached the house,
and Made It Roar 5 replies
Once again, Democrats are trying to attribute President Trump’s economic success to President Obama—and their claims are no truer than they’ve ever been. Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, claimed last month that Trump “inherited the longest economic expansion in history from Barack Obama and Joe Biden” and “ran it straight into the ground.”The media parrot these claims. NBC ran an article in support of Harris’s claim entitled “Data show Trump didn’t build a great economy. He inherited it.” The article notes that new jobs averaged 215,000 per month over Obama’s last four years but only 182,000 per month over Trump’s first three.This comparison is misleading, however,
—and America Loses 1 reply
The New York Times on Monday published a 3,100-word story headlined “Joe Biden’s China Journey.” The three reporters whose bylines appear on the article engage in a painfully obvious effort to explain away the former vice president’s long and cozy relationship with communist China. Now, at long last, they suggest, Biden is ready to get really tough on China. Tougher even than Trump. Good luck to them selling that fractured fairy tale. Biden has appeased China and advanced its interests for as long as I’ve been paying attention to China policy, which is to say since shortly after the Democratic presidential nominee arrived in Washington, D.C., nearly a half-century ago
Election Night 12 replies
The left and its media allies are warning Americans not to expect a winner on election night. If Donald Trump leads on Nov. 3, the victory will be nothing more than a “red mirage,” says Josh Mendelsohn, whose firm consults for the Democratic National Committee. In the days or weeks afterward, a Trump victory will be beaten back and undone as mail-in ballots tip the election for Joe Biden, predicts New York Times columnist David Brooks. “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances,” warns Hillary Clinton. Don’t swallow this propaganda that election night victories are a thing of the past because of mail-in voting.
At Milwaukee Event Billed
As “Roundtable Discussion” 24 replies
At the end of a campaign event billed as a “roundtable discussion” with union workers and black business owners in Milwaukee on Monday, Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris simply walked away, saying “I think we’re all done here,” when a co-host passed her the mic and called for questions. The Biden campaign’s refusal to hold press conferences or even answer questions outside of formal interviews is one of several new lines of attack the Trump campaign has deployed this month. “I once lived in Wisconsin, it is part of my story,” Harris told the audience as she walked away. “Thank you,” a staffer said. “We’re all set.”
the White House: Threaten riots if they lose 14 replies
Four years ago, Hillary Clinton supporters talked a lot about then-candidate Donald Trump refusing to concede a presidential election they were certain he would lose. As it happened, they had it exactly backward: Trump wound up winning, and Democrats and their media cheerleaders have spent most of their waking moments ever since then trying to invalidate that result. They used false charges about Russian “collusion” and any other conceivable means — fair or foul — to make the bad dream of 2016 go away. That’s the key fact to keep in mind amid the drumbeat of obsessive mainstream commentary and analysis about what Trump will do when he loses in November.
questioned leadership as election looms 13 replies
Two months before the November election, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler faces calls to resign from sources as wide-ranging as liberal constituents who once supported him to the nation’s Republican president, who cite what they say is his lack of clear leadership as the city hit 100 days of protests.Many critics say they’re frustrated that Wheeler, the city’s police commissioner, expresses support for police reforms yet hasn’t come out strongly when officers appear to use excessive force on people during protests. Many others are frustrated he hasn’t done more to end the nightly demonstrations and the property damage, small fires and provocations of police that usually accompany them.
About ‘Not in Our Country’? 4 replies
It was 25 years ago when the average people of a small city in Montana “joined together to stand up to hate when their neighbors were under attack,” as the Not in Our Town website reminds us. The town was Billings. The neighbors were Jewish, Black and Native American. The attackers were white supremacists. The average people standing up to hate were, for the most part, white people who, like most people of all colors, were offended by racism and anti-Semitism.
That was then. This is now. The city is Kenosha … or Portland … or Seattle.
Mandate Is Pure Panic 12 replies
Joe Biden is becoming so defensive, he’s being forced to blatantly lie about his own call for a nationwide mask mandate. “We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask,” Slow Joe said during his acceptance speech at the Democrat National Convention.Just so that there’s no confusion, allow me to repeat exactly what Rapey Joe said during a nationally televised speech. We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask. There’s no nuance in that. No ambiguity. Just the week prior to that, he said, “Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide. It will save lives.” He added, “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they are outside for the next three months
