If nothing else, the SCOTUS picks coming up will destroy the Constitution.
Herb, Obama's choice of next SC justice was previously endorsed by many GOP senators, and he is very respected among conservatives & liberals alike. All I care is not another "fish" like Clearance Thomas, whom for 10 years uttered not q single word in all the public SC hearings, until the NYT started writing about it.
He is a the classic example of "political appointee". The late Anthony Scalia for the conservatives, and Thorgud Marshal (Liberals) were known for their brilliant mind - Not Thomas.
Screw you, that is a dream lie of David Kelly. The only way you could prove that is read Thomas's briefs and show they are unintelligible that you even produce this lie is despicable--just like Anita Hill who kept working for years for a known sexual harrasser or we are supposed to believe that--Bull.

As for Trump, Unlike other previous candidates, he has managed to alienate women, Latino, Muslims and other minorities in US. These minorities make a big chunk of the electoral. I have a hard time believing, with white-only supporters Don win the elections.
And you know what--HE WON the ELECTORAL VOTE! Which madam moomoo did not--and again HALF the Country voted for him.

As for Women being against him that's another lie--only screaming winy progreswsive freaks are against him--but you know he appointed Nikki Haley and Betsey Devoss but you know they aren't worth jack to you because they are the equivalent of uncle Tom's in your eyes--Candace Owens. I could give a rats ass about offending muslims and name a muslim that didn't get to come here after they were Vetted? Name one thing trump has said about blacks. Sorry your regressive folks like to pretend illegal immirgants are just undocumented in your eyes,

Since 2000 election where Democrats had lost the presidency, all because Al Gore refused to "stoop down to GOP level of attacks", these guys have learned their lesson and learned it well. That explains Obama's two victories. Since then, they have been responding with massive power to any and all GOP's attack - Trump is no exception.
Whatever dude--Gore was whining about hanging chads.
Moreover, the Clintons have proven their staying powers, ruthless and ability to strike back. With the type of connections they have, we are in a very hot summer. Trump will not have an easy time with HRC - not withstanding this professor's predictions.

I for one, care less about rhetoric and demagoguery talk - all I care, is experience and ability to lead this country.
And Trump has done that better than Hillary ever could.

New poll shows Sanders with large national lead
as Democrats panic: 'It's going to be the end of days'



A newly released Morning Consult poll taken entirely after the New Hampshire primary seems to confirm the worst fears among some Democratic Party leaders: Sen. Bernie Sanders is now the clear front-runner for their party's nomination.

With 29 percent of the poll's respondents indicating they would vote for the Vermont democratic socialist, Sanders tops the field of candidates. He has an ample lead over former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who stand at 19 and 18 percent, respectively, with Democratic voters.

Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg comes in at fourth place with 11 percent, while Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, once considered the favorite to win the nomination, is in fifth place with 10 percent. Meanwhile, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who had a surprisingly strong finish in the New Hampshire primary, is the favorite among 5 percent of Democrats nationwide.

For the survey, Morning Consult interviewed 2,639 registered voters nationwide who indicated they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucuses in their state.

'Poor reading for Biden'
According to pollster Eli Yokley, the poll is bad news for Biden, who political commentators like Ben Shapiro have said is "clogging" the "moderate lane" in the Democratic primary.

"The results are poor reading for Biden, who continues a dramatic drop that erases the national lead he held for over a year until his fourth-place showing in the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses," Yokley wrote in a memo accompanying the poll results.

In his analysis, Yokley notes that the race was tighter before the New Hampshire primary, when Sanders' lead over Biden was within the margin of error, 25 to 22 percent.

"The decline in Biden's support comes amid faltering voter confidence over his perceived general-election strength, even as he banks his candidacy for the Democratic nod on the more diverse electorates driving nominating contests in Nevada and South Carolina ahead of Super Tuesday."

The researcher also said that Biden's standing with black voters is deteriorating as he enters the crucial South Carolina primary.

"Among black voters — one of Biden's strongest blocs of support — confidence in his chances of beating Trump fell 10 points, to 21 percent. Roughly a third of black voters (32 percent) said Sanders is Democrats' best chance to beat Trump, up 9 points from last week, and 21 percent said Bloomberg, up 7 points."

'I'm scared to death ...'
Sanders' 10-point lead comes as Democratic leaders are openly fretting about the impact of his campaign on down-ballot Democrats in key states across the country and whether an open socialist can win the presidency.

"If he's at the top of the ticket in 2020, it's going to be a bad year for Democrats in Florida," said Florida state Rep. Javier Fernandez to the Miami Herald. Fernandez is running for a swing Senate seat in South Florida.

This sentiment was echoed by veteran Democratic strategist James Carville, who said he's "scared to death" of Democrats' chances to win back the White House. Carville even compared Sanders to the UK's Jeremy Corbyn, the left-wing leader of the Labour Party, which was decimated during December elections.

"If we go the way of the British Labour Party, if we nominate Jeremy Corbyn, it's going to be the end of days. ... So I am scared to death, I really am," said the former adviser to President Bill Clinton regarding Sanders' candidacy, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile, according to a Gallup poll released earlier in the week, a majority of Americans say they would never vote for a socialist for president. Fifty-three percent said they would vote against a socialist candidate, while only 45 percent of respondents in the study indicated they would back one.

Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden got into an argument over guns with a Michigan plant worker Tuesday, arguing over “AR-14s.”

The worker and Biden went back and forth on proposed gun controls, with the working saying, “You are actively trying to infringe our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”

Biden responded, “You’re full of sh!t.”

Upon further claims that he was trying to take their guns, Biden responded to the worker, “Don’t tell me that,” and said he would “slap” him.

“Imagine if some greasy politician showed up at your loved one's funeral and started throwing around stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure. Can you imagine that?” Carlson asked.
Tucker Carlson calls Obama 'one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures' in US political history

Tucker Carlson described former President Obama as "one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures in the history of American politics" after his eulogy at the funeral of civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) on Thursday.

Carlson, who also described the former president as "a greasy politician" for calling on Congress to pass a new Voting Rights Act and to eliminate the filibuster, which Obama described as a relic of the Jim Crow era that disenfranchised Black Americans, in order to do so.

"Barack Obama, one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures in the history of American politics, used George Floyd's death at a funeral to attack the police," Carlson said before showing a segment of Obama's remarks.

Obama gave lengthy remarks about Lewis at Thursday's funeral, but the part that got the most attention was his vehement push for Congress to pass a new Voting Rights Act, which was an issue that Lewis had pursued. The Supreme Court in 2013 struck down the heart of the 1965 law, allowing nine states, mostly in the South, to change their voting laws without federal approval.

"Bull Connor may be gone. But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators," Obama said.

Conner was the commissioner of public safety in Birmingham, Ala., and in the 1960s directed the use of fire hoses and attack dogs on people demonstrating for civil rights. He's since become a symbol of that era's most racist leaders.

Carlson cut off the clip at that point with his own commentary, decrying Obama for comparing today's police officers to such a noxious historic figure.

"Bull Connor?" Carlson stated. "The country falling apart, riven by racial strife and tribalism, and one of the most respected people in the whole country decides to pour gasoline on that and compare the police to Bull Connor? As if America or Minneapolis is like Birmingham, Ala., in 1963? It's insane. It's reckless."

"Of course, Obama doesn't care. It's only about November and the coming election," Carlson said.

Protests and demonstrations in favor of reforming police and addressing racial equality broke out across the country after the death of Floyd, who was killed after a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes as Floyd said he could not breath and asked for help.

The killing has been described as a modern-day lynching that evoked the worst episodes of the 1960s and before, and all of the officers involved face criminal charges, with one facing a second-degree murder charge.

Obama went on with his remarks to call for the passage of the new voting rights measure.

"Once we pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, we should keep marching," Obama said. "And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster — another Jim Crow relic — in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that's what we should do."

The filibuster is a procedural tool that effectively requires legislation to be approved by 60 votes. It was long used to block legislation in the civil rights era.

Carlson, whose head writer resigned last month after it was discovered he had posted racist and sexist material on an online forum, accused the former president of exploiting the funeral to throw around "stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure."

“Imagine if some greasy politician showed up at your loved one's funeral and started throwing around stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure. Can you imagine that?” Carlson asked.

I think Sanders views on capitalism and the US corporate profiteering healthcare system are irrelevant to the Islam issue. My problem with Sanders is that, like the rest of the global left, he regards Trump's entirely reasonable views on Muslim immigration as epitomizing everything that's wrong with the incumbent.

New York Times Op-ed: ‘Let’s Scrap the Presidential Debates

By Pamela Geller -

Could you imagine if Republicans didn’t want Presidential debates because their candidate was a demented segregationist kid sniffer?

The New York Times published an op-ed Monday morning titled “Let’s Scrap the Presidential Debates,” arguing that they play too great a role in helping voters choose the president.

Journalist Elizabeth Drew assures readers that she is not worried that Biden will lose the debates.

“This, by the way, isn’t written out of any concern that Donald Trump will prevail over Joe Biden in the debates; Mr. Biden has done just fine in a long string of such contests,” she writes.

The point, she says, is that the debates are meaningless — “that ‘winning’ a debate, however assessed, should be irrelevant, as are the debates themselves.”

She argues:
  • Nervous managers of the scheduled 2020 presidential debates are shuffling the logistics and locations to deal with the threat of the coronavirus. But here’s a better idea: Scrap them altogether. And not for health reasons.

    The debates have never made sense as a test for presidential leadership. In fact, one could argue that they reward precisely the opposite of what we want in a president. When we were serious about the presidency, we wanted intelligence, thoughtfulness, knowledge, empathy and, to be sure, likability. It should also go without saying, dignity.

    Yet the debates play an outsize role in campaigns and weigh more heavily on the verdict than their true value deserves.

    Drew calls Trump “the most disastrous president in our history” and complains that the 2016 presidential debates “became simply another tool in his arsenal.”

    Others on the left have also argued that former Vice President Biden should not debate Trump.

    Times columnist Thomas Friedman wrote last month that Biden should not debate Trump without real-time fact-checking — though Biden has a long history (in 2008, and 2012) of factual errors in debates.

    Joe Lockhart, a former press aide to President Bill Clinton, advised Biden last week at CNN.com: “Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump.”

Leading in the polls & trump on the downhill slide, perhaps it might be a very good idea to scrap the debates - deprive trump of his theatrics and more important hear his repeated lies & distortions of facts.

At this stage & current economic conditions - what else trump has to stand on? his utter failure to lead the coronavirus. or the double-digit unemployment?. Notwithstanding the fact many of those layoffed workers - also lost their Health Insurance.

What I am stressing is - if debates are run for theatrics - devoid of substance, littered with buzz-words, than trump is the man. BUT if we want debates with substantive topics - Biden is the man. That explains Biden's recent policy layout - if (Inshallah) he becomes PoUS.

While trump advisors are pushing for more & more debates with the hope to make fun of Biden, catch him "stuttering" one or two sentences - they also risk of seeing trump hip-shoot, repeat or contradict himself more then ones, push ridiculous & unproven theories etc. - thus make himself a laughing stock to the world.
Cancelling the debate would serve trump chances of winning the elections far more than Biden winning it.

I am going to jawbone with you ariel. YOU WILL NOT POST ANY EDITED OR OTHERWISE DOCTORED YOUTUBE OK?. Since trump supporters don't have any substantive argument to put forth defending him - they (and you) resort of school-yard denigration of opponents. As for the "sleepy Joe". from now on I will spell trump as T-rump & see how do you like it.

Taking a full hour of speech where he lays out his vision for the country & play only pauses - all designed to make him look bad is not a fair game in my book. This is narrow minded, mean & outright stupid. Only uninformed people will fall fall for this insidious clip.
Than don't be surprise why most conservatives are being ridiculed by liberals.

After he was booted from CNN as one of the dumbest talking heads there - TC tries to make a name for himself at (where else?) Foxnews. You can be sure he is more after TV rating and his fat paycheck than true conservative.

You can bet your shirt that if MSNBC offers him much higher salary - sure enough he would jump ship with new bow-tie as "Born-again Liberal".

I do remember that exchange. Biden NEVER EVER raised any prospect of repealing the 2nd Amendment - never. Only he called for sensible gun control in the hand of wrong people.

What Biden may have thought - this schmuck is a right-wing provocateur plated by T-rump's campaign to demean or otherwise shame him publicly - not ask an innocent or pertinent question, nor the guy was interested to hear Bidens full reply.

I am not sure if Trump is on the downhill slide Hombre. But keep faith .

A new poll released this weekend shows President Donald Trump, the incumbent GOP president, has taken a national and battleground states lead over his Democrat challenger presumptive nominee former Vice President Joe Biden.
