The Supreme Court's legitimacy rests in large part on the perception it is a nonpartisan institution, but Kavanaugh joined the bench engulfed in a toxic cloud of political rancor. In the year after the ugly confirmation hearing, the justices mostly kept their heads down, ducking many controversial cases for no apparent reason. They decided only two bona fide blockbusters, throwing partisan gerrymandering claims out of federal court and blocking the census citizenship question. Meanwhile, they dodged cases about Dreamers, abortion, religious freedom, and discrimination, effectively deciding not to decide. read more

House Democrats threatened Wednesday morning to subpoena the White House for documents related to Trump's dealings with Ukraine as part of their impeachment inquiry. House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a memo that House committees have repeatedly tried to obtain voluntary compliance from Trump officials, but the White House has "refused to engage with " or even respond to " the Committees." Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) held a joint news conference later that morning, warning that attempts by the White House to "stonewall" the impeachment inquiry and "conceal facts" would be considered an obstruction of justice. read more

Not sure I'm seeing the impeachable offense in that call. Looks like the IG didn't actually have access to the transcript when making the urgent call. www.apnews.com read more

Hampton Roads authorities have joined federal law enforcement agents investigating the recent suicide deaths of four sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush. Although two of the sailors killed themselves on the same day, Navy officials have distanced themselves from internet rumors describing their deaths as an "epidemic." They insist authorities in Portsmouth, Norfolk and Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents haven't been able to link the deaths to each other.

Vulnerable House Democrats in swing districts are resisting pressure to back the launching of an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. read more


This is the guy you're going to bat for. The guy who says he trusts putin over our own military intelligence. The guy who says he's going after corruption but has never cared about any corruption that he can't tie to his opponents. He tells you to trust HIM and not the media. And what do you say? "Duuuuuuhhhh ok boss!"

*sigh* Having to explain it to you makes #23 even more obvious, btw.
I haven't claimed that the media will lie about it. I explained that regardless of my feeling or yours on the subject, -trump- feels that way. (We can get into a big discussion about whether he's right to feel that way, but I bet that we can both agree that -he- does feel that way.). Since I believe that Trump feels that way, then rational behavior would be to delay as far as legally possible...as he is doing.

I'm not going to bat for any person. I am acknowledging the reality of the situation which is that declining an invitation, whoever offered it - whoever declined it, isn't obstruction.

You can go on and on and on about how many lies Trump tells, how morally repugnant he is, how devoid of character and destructive to the reputation of America he is...and I'll agree with almost all of it, most likely. Absolutely none of that changes how I'm going to recognize reality and facts. Will it make you feel better for me to say 'that imbecile Trump didn't ask Ukraine to open an investigation into Biden'? 'That pathetic Trump is engaged in the same type of delay campaign that every Presidential administration has'?

My opinion of the man does not change the fact that I can still rationally and dispassionately measure his behavior, the legality or illegality of it -based on actual evidence-, and point out where people feel the need to embellish.
