Democrats use Yates firing to further delay Sessions inevitable confirmation...

POLITICO



Of course, if the Democrats had allowed the generally politically accepted quick confirmation of Attorney Generals that all other Presidents have been given, a former Obama flunky would not have been in a position to create the "grandstanding" scene that led to the firing of the flunky in question.

Sooner or later the Republicans are going to be tired of indulging them and just go nuclear.

Sooner or later all the faux outrage and demonstrations will meld into a cohesive force and show the way to upsetting the R plans. Hopefully, before a shooting war starts under donnie.

Commonsense said...

So you are basing a movement on phoney outrage.

Sounds about right for a liberal.

The numbers speak for themselves. Like you, he can only bury his head so long before something breaks. You said it would all be forgotten by Friday. Me thinks you are nutz.

Commonsense said...

They certainly do, and the numbers say that a majority of Americans support Trump's immigration policy.

The only one living in La La land is you.

I am getting my wish, I wished that the Liberal Losers would act like this, spoiled by being in power now out, they act like a child that was raised by snowflake parents that never said "NO", now that they are in the real world they wonder why the WORLD is telling them "NO".

Trump SCOTUS: "Evangelicals will love my pick."

If he nominates a justice who will support overturning Roe V Wade, this will be an epic battle.

I put up an open mic on the SCOTUS Selection on the Historical Blog

I only made one partisan point with one of the pictures. LOL

"Reflecting on the life and times of Scalia last year, Gorsuch told a law school audience how he viewed the role of judges and judging.


They are “men and women,” he said, “who do not thrust themselves into the limelight but who tend patiently and usually quite obscurely to the great promise of our legal system ― the promise that all litigants, rich or poor, mighty or meek, will receive equal protection under the law and due process for their grievances.” Huffington Post

Well, this is a very mainstream, middle of the road view, nothing to get in the way of his confirmation. I Think it was a Safe Pick and he was vetted and on President Elect Trumps List.

SO the President kept his word, again, picked from his list and now onto other issues, this one is "settled".

Should have fired her before she got the chance to grandstand. Trump is going to need to purge the Justice Department sooner or later.

Roger Amick said...

As usual the racist rodent is wrong again. Read it and weep Jimmy boy.


Bannon's appointment to the NSC requires Senate approval.

There goes Roger again doubling down on stupid.

Commonsense said...

Just to rub Roger's nose in his stupidity:

Laurence Tribe ✔ @tribelaw
1/The law isn't obscure but it dsn't require Senate confirmation to serve on the Principals Committee, which isn't part of NSC as such. The https://twitter.com/jonathanalter/status/826284614188662784 …

2/role Bannon has been given is crazy and dangerous but it doesn't seem to violate any law, though it probably should


Yes, it's the same legal professor who Roger cites as an expert on the constitution.

Embrace the SUCK



Senate Republicans pushed through a pair of President Trump’s Cabinet nominees Wednesday, upending standard committee rules to circumvent a Democratic boycott.

The Senate Finance Committee advanced a pair of Trump’s nominees with only Republican members present — Steven Mnuchin to head the Treasury Department, and Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) as secretary of Health and Human Services.

By unanimous consent, the Republicans gathered in the hearing room agreed to change the committee’s standing rules, which normally require at least one member of each party to be in attendance for committee work to proceed.

His party is in shambles, lost elections and no back bone.


I love that the Republicans with the support of the President have moved over the tiny crying speed bumps known as the Dems and did the work.


Dems, Man of for Christ Sake, you lost, but calling in Sick is sad>

Sessions shouldn't be confirmed. He's a big government liberal who has already deceived the American people and the people of his state.
