Hits and Misses

Which are hits and which are misses? That’s up to you to decide.
Opinion: Ginsburg gambled to stay and now she may lose her legacy
They gambled that Hillary would be choosing judges for the next 8 years. Quelle surprise!

The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court represents a huge political victory for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who gambled on blocking the nomination of Merrick Garland in the hopes of a GOP electoral victory.

It may also have been an equally huge loss for the of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who ignored increasing calls for her retirement during the Obama administration to avoid the prospect of the flipping of her seat from a liberal to a conservative member. That gamble — whatever calculation — could now cost a sweeping number of key cases hanging by a 5-4 margin, including much of the precedent built around Roe v. Wade, if not an outright overturning of that decision.

CNN Panel Gets Schooled On ‘Golf Diplomacy’

“Always play with leaders of countries and people that can help us,” the clip continued. “Don’t play with your friends all the time.”
The clip’s message seemed to fall on deaf ears, as host John King, Nia-Malika Henderson and Sara Murray spent the next few minutes laughing and taking shots at the President for what they viewed as hypocrisy.
YET, THEY WERE FINE WITH OBOZO GOLFING OVER 300 TIMES

Texas voter ID law was designed to discriminate against minorities, judge rules
THE FIX WAS IN… CHECK THIS OUT
GUESS WHO PUT THIS LATINA ON THE BENCH IN 2011?

The latest ruling by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi comes more than two years after she likened Texas’s voter ID rules, known as SB 14, to a “poll tax” meant to suppress minority voters. On Monday, she reaffirmed that conclusion after an appeals court asked her to reexamine her findings.

The Texas law requires voters to show one of seven forms of identification at the ballot box. The list includes concealed-handgun licenses but not college student IDs, and Texas was forced under court order last year to weaken the law for the November elections.

Doctor dragged off flight was convicted of trading drugs for sex
Dr. David Dao, 69, who was captured in a now-viral video being forcibly dragged off the Louisville-bound flight at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Sunday, was working as a doctor specializing in pulmonary disease in Elizabethtown when he was convicted of trading prescription drugs for sexual favors.
The board’s probe into the criminal charges found that Dao became sexually interested in a male patient, Brian Case, whom he gave a physical examination to, including a genital examination, and whom he eventually made his office manager.
The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure permitted Dao to continue practicing medicine in 2015 under certain conditions, after he completed his probation and underwent psychological evaluations, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

    GOP sweating two special congressional elections
    The media will,of course,jump on a democrat pickup of either seat as a rebuke of the Trump presidency.
    Former Capitol Hill aide Jon Ossoff, 30, is riding the Democratic energy stemming from Trump’s election and raised an astounding $8.3 million in the first three months of the year — a staggering amount for a House candidate. For some perspective, former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland took an entire cycle to raise $10.7 million for his Ohio Senate race last year.Most of Ossoff’s money, $7.7 million, came though the progressive donation hub ActBlue. Republicans have tried to toxify him by raising the specter of meddling out-of-state liberals – only 6 percent of the money is from Georgia – but Ossoff points to his volunteers.

    Reporter Who Exposed ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape Wins Pulitzer

    “Fahrenthold’s work cast doubt on the then-GOP nominee’s supposed generosity.”
    PULITZERS COME CHEAP

    The entry for Fahrenthold on the Pulitzer website reads that he won it for “persistent reporting that created a model for transparent journalism in political campaign coverage while casting doubt on Donald Trump’s assertions of generosity toward charities.”

    The site also lists the following articles as examples of Fahrenthold’s prize-winning work: “Little proof of Trump’s big giving,” “Portrait of Trump as donor emerges,” and “Trump: ‘I regret’ lewd chat in 2005.”
    “Because journalists deliver uncomfortable truths, they will always be easy targets of criticism,” Pulitzer Prize Administrator Mike Pride said before announcing the 2017 winners.

    Wake us when the Pulitzer committee decides to hand out awards to journalists who deliver uncomfortable truths about Democrats

    Alabama Governor Resigns Due to Sex Scandal

    Bentley stepped down as part of a plea deal that saw him admit to two misdemeanor campaign and ethics charges. The 74-year-old grandfather of six was given a 30-day suspended jail sentence and a year of probation. The agreement includes provisions that Bentley not seek elected office again, that he repay campaign funds totaling $36,912 within a week and perform 100 hours of community service as a physician.


    The biggest irony, this guy said he could not vote for Trump because of his remarks that women allow certain sexual liberties to the upper crust.
