Citizens United helped lead to the huge wave of Koch Bros. money that swept through various states, turning many state legislatures red from 2010-2016. If the Democrats help confirm Gorsusch, they'll be digging their own grave.
She's an incredibly stupid opportunist who most notably has owned herself by thinking Charlie Hebdo was a person who was killed, who thought Twitter's search box worked like Google and so posted a screenshot of her own searches as proof Corbyn supporters are anti-semites, who thought Vladimir Putin killed Andrew Breitbart, and, most incredibly,
She's not a fake journalist or any sort of journalist, she's some sort of weaponized idiot who inexplicably was given NYT column inches to ramble incoherently about Russia and Brazile didn't read past the ****ing headline.
it is actually a Lifetime achievement award but the Hill wants their clicks
i think running a clinton for anything ever again would be a disaster but pretty sure there were some of the leaked EMAILS that showed chelsea in a pretty good light and i can't recall anything she really did that was wrong other than being born privileged
Not a fan of his oratory ability. He's not at all polished and occasionally comes off as awkward. When interviewed as a talking head he stumbles and blathers way too much. I don't think he'd manage to get through debates in great shape or give speeches that fire anyone up.
Also, the fact that he was on SNL a million years ago will be of no relevance to people under 30, which is the demo that D's need to energize enough to ensure they get off their ass and go vote.
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.
The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year.
The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s term. The next high court opening could alter the balance of the court, and some Democrats privately argue that fight will be far more consequential than the current one.
If Democrats move ahead with the plan — it’s still in the early discussion phase — it would require buy-in from some Republicans, but not necessarily Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) or his top deputies. At least three rank-and-file GOP members would have to pledge not to vote to unilaterally change the Senate rules through a majority-only vote later in Trump’s term — the so-called nuclear option.
Hillary for 2020? Please let it be true and give her a chance to succeed one more time
Hillary comes out of the woods
Hillary says she has healed the emotional wounds she suffered during her humiliating, crushing, sstaggering and well-deserved defeat.
Mrs Clinton wants to return to a life of service to the country, though she is not yet certain who's life that will be, and how she can get a hold of it. (or not even what country it would be, I may add)
But Mrs Clinton's unpredecented and humiliating defeat have not been just emotionally humiliating, but financial. Surely after Clinton lost the bid to become the first soulless female communist president, donations to the Clinton Foundation reportedly dried up as donors realized the humiliated candidate could no longer sell her political influence for cash since she had no political influence as her political defeat.
