A Pointless Post

Most of the junk I post has no central theme. Just little nuggets of information I pick up during my exciting days as a housebound retiree.

Pew: Paul Ryan’s approval as Speaker now lower than Boehner’s, Pelosi’s, or Newt Gingrich’s
How many different contributing factors are there for Ryan’s garbage numbers? I can think of at least four.

Contributing factor one: He was, of course, the quarterback for the GOP’s much-hated health-care bill, which was polling at a breezy 17 percent approval right before it went down in flames.

Contributing factor two: Unlike the other three former Speakers listed, Ryan’s a former VP nominee. The bigger a politician’s national profile, the stronger partisan feelings about him are likely to run.

Contributing factor three: Unlike Newt, Ryan is dealing with a divided party, one whose populist-nationalist wing regards him as little better than a Democrat

Contributing factor four: Cliche though it may be, we live in an age of high political polarization. A Republican as prominent as Ryan would have been a hate object for the left no matter what, but toss in his Romney pedigree and his Medicare-cutting ambitions and he’s doomed to pitiful numbers among Democrats.

My youngest daughter and I are political opposites.She spoke at a meeting for Cheri Bustos,a hardline leftwinger from Illinois.She spoke about how difficult it would be coping with the expenses for Tyler’s cancer without Obamacare.She posted a comment about Ryan being too chickenshit to have a townhall meeting.I pointed out we share the same disgust for this RINO creep,but for different reasons.He’s afraid to appear anywhere because the conservatives who resent his sabotaging the Trump agenda would voice their unhappiness.On nearly all other phases of politics we agree to disagree.


Variety magazine’s Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller, in a tweet promoting a new specialty issue, asked the public to answer this question about Chelsea Clinton, “How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?

SORRY… SHOULD HAVE WARNED YOU BEFORE I POSTED THAT

Conservatives don’t hate a golfing President, but they hated an uppity negro golfing President
No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump. In his first 12 weeks in office Trump took a staggering 18 golf course trips. That’s unheard of. In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn’t visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it’s likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency.
The racist caricature of the “uppity negro” has deep roots in this country. Uppity negroes have irritated white folk for over a hundred years. In its most simple form, the uppity negro is a black man or woman who enjoys anything other than working from sunup to sundown. Particularly, an uppity negro is a black man or woman who enjoys creature comforts in life that some whites may not yet be able to afford to enjoy — say a musical, a play, fine dining, or, you guessed it, a round of golf.

HAVE YOU GUESSED IT YET? HINT: IT’S WRITTEN BY AN UPPITY NON-NEGRO WHO HATES BEING WHITE

Supreme Court won’t hear case challenging government’s expedited removal of undocumented immigrants
Lawyers for the families sought to challenge their expedited removal proceedings in federal court arguing they face gender-based violence at home, but a Philadelphia-based federal appeals court held that they have no right to judicial review of such claims.

The court’s action means the government can continue to deny asylum seekers placed in expedited removal a chance to have their cases heard by federal court. Justice Neil Gorsuch, who has his first full week on the court starting Monday, did not participate in the decision.

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.

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.

Gorsuch Will Make a Difference

Gorsuch will provide the Supreme Court with the crucial fifth vote needed to sustain the Constitution as written and to protect fundamental rights like religious freedom, free speech, and the right to bear arms.

SCOTUS and Constitution

The new Supreme Court justice will arrive in time to hear the April 19 oral arguments in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley, which is a case of stark, blatant religious discrimination by the government.

Gorsuch will also influence which pending petitions SCOTUS will accept for appeal.

Among those pending is Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an important case about an individual’s right to refuse to perform a service that violates his or her religious beliefs.

Two other important petitions — Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute and North Carolina v. North Carolina NAACP — involve voter ID and election integrity.

Neil Gorsuch should also provide the fifth vote needed to quash the judicial activism present in the injunctions against Trump’s travel ban orders.  The Constitution clearly gives POTUS the authority as commander-in-chief to protect the nation, something Obama did without any liberals freaking out about it.

Gorsuch confirmed 54-45

2017_04 Gorsuch and Reid

Three Democrats in the United States Senate — Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Heidi Heitcamp (N.D.) and Joe Manchin (W.V.) — joined with Republicans in voting to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

One Republican senator, Johnny Isakson (Ga.), did not vote because, as his office explained in a statement, he was “in Georgia today recovering from two back surgeries.”

Isakson made it clear that he supported Gorsuch and would have voted for him had he been in Washington today.

Enjoying a Little Nukie

2017_04 Gorsuch out of mainstream Dems say

From Stilton Jarlsberg:

History was made yesterday when, for the first time since our nation became a nation, Democrats filibustered an exemplary Supreme Court Nominee because – and we’ve got plenty of political scientists and analysts to back us up on this – they’re complete and total assholes.

The only way around this epic act of douchebaggery was for Senate Republicans to invoke the so-called “nuclear option,” which – disappointingly – did not require inviting Democrats to “a picnic and special surprise” in the remotest corner of Nevada while a gleeful Donald Trump punched their coordinates into his suitcase nuclear launch device.

Rather, it involved changing Senate rules to allow a Supreme Court nominee to be confirmed with a simple majority of 51 votes, rather than requiring the 60 votes which has traditionally been the standard. And under this rule, we should see standout nominee Judge Gorsuch confirmed for the Supreme Court sometime today.

We would say that the Democrats are losing their freaking minds over this, only that ship sailed a long time ago.

Incredibly Stupid

Democrats are determined to obstruct the nomination of the eminently qualified Judge Gorsuch, because, as Kamala Harris put it, he “has consistently valued legalisms over real lives.”

Since “valuing legalisms” is Dumbocrat for “following the law”, what these clowns are really saying is that they won’t vote for Gorsuch because he’s such a good judge.
