Democrats: 'Without Abortion, Women Might Have To Settle For Having 7 Kids And Sitting On The Highest Court In The Land'WASHINGTON, D.C.—Democrats are lamenting after Trump revealed his nomination to take Justice Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court: Amy Coney Barrett.

At some point, someone got the idea to say that the reason Biden was spending so much time in his basement is that he was doing debate prep, and now we have to check someone’s timeline to see if they’re being serious or sarcastic when they say it. “Where’s Joe?” “Oh, he’s doing debate prep.”On Friday, the New York Post did a riff on “Where’s Waldo?” with “Where’s Joe?” It’s a great cover, and CNN media guy Brian Stelter retweeted it with the words, “Preparing for a debate, obv.” Preparing...

Bill Barr Intervened to Overrule Federal Prosecutor Who Said D.C. Police Arrested Protesters Without Any Evidence of Wrongdoing

The top federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C. wrote a letter to the city’s mayor earlier this month explicitly declaring that local police had arrested more than 50 protesters without any evidence of wrongdoing, only to walk back his comments two days later. But new from the New York Times suggests U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin’s change of heart can be attributed to a U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, who intervened in the matter to have Sherwin publicly concede that the officers didn’t actually do anything wrong.In a Sept. 1 to Mayor Muriel Bowser (D), who had criticized federal...

Don't Participate in a Sham Process

Don't Participate in a Sham Process

LatestBy|September 26, 2020 6:42 p.m.President Trump has now, unsurprisingly, chosen to nominate the far right Amy Coney Barrett to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. The only sensible approach is for Senate Democrats neither to meet with Barrett nor participate in the confirmation process at all. Even to do so in a critical posture is to add legitimacy to a process that is illegitimate.As bad as she may be as a judge or for the future of equal justice in the United States she can never be as bad as the corruption of the process itself. It is that corruption – the...

Alito Jr. At a break in the proceedings, then-Sen. Joe Biden came up to me and said, “You know this is all an exercise in Kabuki theater. Everyone in this room knows that Sam Alito is going to be a very conservative justice. The Republicans are pretending that he has no ideology. The Democrats are trying to ask questions to trip him up or pin him down and he is too smart for that.”Biden was correct: Alito was confirmed...

Jonathan Chait explains how Ibram X. Kendi's tweet about white colonizers using black children as props is being misconstrued

Jonathan Chait explains how Ibram X. Kendi's tweet about white colonizers using black children as props is being misconstrued

Keep in mind that Ibram X. Kendi’s tweet about so they could civilize the little savages in the superior ways of white people was inspired by a tweet saying “it is going to be interesting to watch the Democrats try to smear Amy Coney Barrett as a racist.” And knowing that Kendi, author of “How to Be an Antiracist,” believes when it comes to whites, only the attempt to cover for one’s racism, it’s pretty clear what he was saying.And whether this is Barrett or not is not the point. It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can't be racist.—...
