Judge Aileen Canon Is A Corrupt Judge, She Must Be Removed From The Bench

Matthew Chapman at Salon reported, Special master rebukes Trump judge that appointed him for order that “made no sense”: When former President Donald Trump went to court against the Justice Department to stall the federal investigation into classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, a district judge he appointed, Aileen Cannon, granted Trump everything he asked for, appointing a special master to review the documents for executive privilege even though no legal precedent grants a former president privilege

Democrats Have Always Been Better For The Economy … Always

At least once a year, I have posted a version of this post, this is one from September 2020. Democrats Have Always Been Better For The Economy … Always. Historically, Republicans tank the economy with their politics of greed, then Americans elect Democrats to clean up their mess, and invariably "no good deed goes unpunished," Americans suffer from mass amnesia and elect Republicans back in charge. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. By all objective relevant metrics, Democrats have always been better

This may prove interesting. Politico reports, Ginni Thomas is set to testify virtually with the Jan. 6 select committee today: Look who’s talking: Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is set to virtually appear Thursday before the Jan. 6 select committee, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell’s Misleading Statement on Abortion Prosecutions

Surprise! Acting Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell is a LAWYER. You almost have to BE a lawyer to accurately parse her deeply misleading statement regarding abortion prosecutions. Her statement has been widely misinterpreted by journalists, leading to headlines that categorically misstate her position. Every headline about her statement that I’ve seen states categorically that she WILL NOT PROSECUTE WOMEN for seeking or having an abortion. That is NOT what she said. Listen closely: What she actually says is that

Gov. Gavin Newsom On Democrats’ Messaging Problem

Back in June, after the activist radical Republican Supreme Court completed its most extremist term ever by overturning Roe v. Wade, reversing a fundamental constitutional right it had recognized for the first time in U.S. history, Ron Brownstein wrote at The Atlantic, The Democrats’ New Spokesman in the Culture Wars (excerpt): On May 4, two days after Politico rocked Washington by revealing the draft of a Supreme Court decision to overturn the constitutional right to abortion, California Governor Gavin

Bipartisan Support For Electoral Count Reform and Presidential Transition Improvement Act

Senate leadership does not have committee assignments, but they do have a seat on the Rules Committee. It is rare when leadership attends a committee hearing, so consider this a BFD. Especially when the "Grim Reaper" of the Senate shows up to actually support a bill, rather than to kill it as he usually does. The Washington Post reports, McConnell, Schumer back bill to prevent efforts to subvert presidential election results: Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Minority

CR Spending Bill Advances Without Manchin’s Permitting Reform Bill Attached

Democrats secured Sen. Joe Manchin's vote on their Inflation Reduction Act fka Build Back Better bill by agreeing to a sweetheart side deal for Manchin, who demanded his permitting reform bill for the benefit of the Carbon Monopoly. On Tuesday Republicans, who are the lickspittle lackeys of the Carbon Monopoly, nonetheless forced Manchin to pull his permitting reform bill from the Continuing Resolution spending bill Congress must pass by September 30, out of political retribution for Manchin's vote for the Inflation

Federal Judge Blocks Enforcement Of AZ Jim Crow 2.0 Voter Registration Law

Howard Fischer reports, Judge blocks state's new voter registration law: A federal judge has blocked the state from enforcing a new law that he said could inadvertently make felons out of volunteers who register people to vote. In a 22-page order, Judge Murray Snow said the provision in SB 1260, approved earlier this year by the Republican-controlled legislature, is so poorly written that anyone reading it would not know what is — and is not — legal. And that,
