'the Donald' Trump

Recommended Posts

Ist möglicherweise ein Bild von 4 Personen und Text „MAJOR BREAKING NEWS: STAT MANA STANTIN COLLUSION PROVEN: U.S. INTELLIGENCE JUST REVEALED that 2016 Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort gave top-secret campaign polling data to Russian agent Konstantin Kilimnik, who then gave it to Russia's spy agencies, so that Russia could more accurately target swing voters with pro-Trump propaganda. THE ONLY "RUSSIA HOAX" IS THAT THERE WAS NO COLLUSION, FOLKS! OCCUPY DEMOCRATS“

SEEMS like Nancy Pelosi is refusing to co-operate on that one and will sink the idea...

Nancy Pelosi effectively killed an upcoming Democrat proposal to expand the Supreme Court by four seats by saying Thursday she would not bring the bill to the House floor. The bid from a group of Democratic lawmakers would change the number of justices for the first time in 160 years and wipe out the conservative majority built under Donald Trump. 

The danger of expanding the Supreme Court when it's imbalanced is that it'll happen the next time the other party gets control of both Houses of Congress. Thus the Supreme Court becomes a political potato rather than to serve justice.

I'd also guess even though the Supreme Court is so loaded in favour of the Republicans, it didn't do the Trump administration any favours either.

It would be far better to introduce mandatory retirement ages and term limits, even if these are quite long. That way you'll get some reasonably regular turnover that will keep things more balanced.

Agreed. The problem with just waiting till justices die is that it depends how many die under any given president and therefore new ones appointed. Four were appointed by Reagan and three by Trump as opposed to two each under Clinton and Obama. As the appointments owe so much to politics rather than being purely appointed impartially on grounds of who is the best judge, some sort of term limit with a regular turn-over would seem to offer the best solution....that or actually appoint the best person for the job irrespective of politics.

This is Republican America. Alabama has a yoga ban and this is why.....

But the closer Gray’s vision comes to fruition, the more it draws enemy fire. The main hurdle to reform lies with conservative Christian groups who argue that just the mere act of allowing yoga in the classroom will expose kids to the risk of converting to Hinduism.

“Yoga is a very big part of the Hindu religion, and if this bill passes then instructors will be able to come into classrooms as young as kindergarten and bring these children through guided imagery, which is a spiritual exercise,” Becky Gerritson, director of the conservative Alabama Eagletold state senators recently.

Do you mean he should have said he's "praying the verdict is the wrong verdict"?

No he shouldn’t. He justifies it be saying he waited until the jury had been sequested ( sent out)before giving his opinion but if the jury failed to agree and the judge orders a retrial the Defence team can argue to have the case dismissed on the grounds that Biden has influenced the result in any retrial.

He also says that George Floyds family are a good family , without mentioning the policeman’s family , it implies that his family are not a good family.

Without getting into the politics of it this does seem, by its timing, and being made public, to be a stunt..

More riots on the way now no doubt.

No he shouldn’t have said anything. It’s being reported around the world now that he said he wanted a guilty verdict. Either he knew excactly what he was doing or he is unbelievably stupid.
