Intéressant de noter aussi 1 autre avantage pour #Trump de nommer #AmyConeyBarrett: elle n'a que 3 ans de service comme juge de cour d'appel et donc peu de jugements susceptibles de controverses. Le reste à lire dans mon analyse sur @Lesjoursfr!

2) Il y eut 1 véritable retour d'expérience des conservateurs sur le désastre #Bork en 1987- juge nommé à la #CourSuprême par Reagan et rejeté par le Sénat: ne plus nommer de personnalités abrasives, dures, à la Bork mais des profils plus "lisses", appréciés au quotidien...
3)...on l'a oublié à cause des accusations de crime sexuel contre lui, mais lors de sa nomination par #Trump à l'été 2018, #Kavanaugh était aussi dans le moule #Roberts/#ConeyBarrett: conservateur MAIS très apprécié humainement de ses collègues libéraux. politico.com/magazine/story…

En 1 seul mandat, avec #AmyConeyBarrett, 3 juges conservateurs nommés à la #CourSuprême par #Trump. Mission accomplie. Quand Obama en 2016 aurait dû renverser la majorité conservatrice par la nomination de Garland.
Pourquoi et comment? Mon analyse ce matin dans @Lesjoursfr!
2) Le petit plus habituel ci-dessous pour accompagner mon article sur @lesjoursfr avec des éléments qui n'y figurent pas, pour vous donner envie de vous abonner ici...lesjours.fr/abonnement/jou…
3) Avec #AmyConeyBarrett à la #CourSuprême on aurait donc 6 juges nommés par 1 président républicain dont 3 par le seul #Trump, contre 3 juges par 1 président démocrate, dont le plus âgé- 82 ans-, Breyer, installé par #Clinton en 1994...

* Barrett, Kavanaugh, Roberts all helped stop the recount in 2000; Bush “won” by 537 votes in FL
* Global/Diebold machines deleted 16K Gore votes in Volusia & 4K in Brevard
*Global s largest shareholder & Sr VP was a convicted embezzler; crimes involved computer tampering 1/
I discuss the convicted embezzler at Global/Diebold here. He joined the company in September 2000. It was @BevHarrisWrites who first discovered and reported on his presence at the company. 2/ legacy.tyt.com/2018/08/17/kob…
Because we never got a full statewide recount, we don’t know if there were other Gore vote deletions in the state. (The ones in Volusia and Brevard were discovered by happenstance & corrected.). 3/

.@SenKamalaHarris Will Remind Everyone How Awful She Is During Confirmation Hearing pjmedia.com/columns/stephe… HT @PJMedia_com
.@SenKamalaHarris will have to take some time off the campaign trail so she can attend to serving on the @senjudiciary Committee.
.@SenKamalaHarris gets another opportunity to remind everyone what a "shrill shrew" she is. Since @POTUS will nominate a woman, her #Kavanaugh antics won’t play as well.

Le sénateur d'Utah, ex-présidentiable républicain #Romney, qui avait voté pour destituer le président #Trump et n'a cessé de condamner ses actions comme 1 menace pour la république US votera donc pour son choix à la #CourSuprême avant l'élection.
nbcnews.com/politics/supre…
2) Cet énième revirement de #Romney, dont la carrière est 1 suite de reniements perpétuels (sur l'avortement, l'assurance-santé, #Trump etc.), a le mérite de clarifier la situation politique actuelle aux #EtatsUnis sur la #CourSuprême et les enjeux de la présidentielle à venir.
3) D'1 part, #Romney en acceptant le remplacement de #Ginsburg par #Trump en période d'élection présidentielle, malgré le "précédent" fixé par les républicains en 2016, garantit la confirmation-a priori très rapide- de la future juge conservatrice à la #CourSuprême...

Trump will nominate a #SupremeCourt replacement to #RBG next week. #McConnell will bring the nomination to a vote in the Senate before election day. Why stacking courts is the next step to lawlessness and how it is done: thread 👇🏽 #supremecourtnominee #VOTEBIDEN

L'info me semble 1 peu erronée. #Murkowski, sénatrice républicaine d'#Alaska, est pour moi la 1ère à dire fermement qu'elle ne votera pas avant l'élection pour 1 choix de #Trump afin de remplacer #Ginsburg. Collins, sénatrice du Maine, dit que le Sénat ne "devrait" pas le faire.
#LastRT C'est conforme à l'historique des 2 sénatrices républicaines. #Murkowski a voté contre #Trump sur la nomination de #Kavanaugh en commission.
#Collins est toujours rentrée dans le rang. Et elle est en campagne de réélection, très dure, dans le Maine de surcroît.
Et si vous voulez savoir pourquoi #Murkowski peut l'ouvrir publiquement si souvent contre #Trump, lire mon enfilade de juin dernier, quand elle avait soutenu #Mattis...#droitedanssesbottes #àdérouler

Quelques remarques sur les institutions US à propos d'1 nomination d'1 nouvelle juge à la #CourSuprême par #Trump à la place de #RuthBaderGinsburg, dont le cours semble s'accélérer grâce à la connivence- qui ne fait plus guère de doute du Sénat républicain.thehill.com/homenews/senat…
2) Quoiqu'il advienne le 3 novembre, ce dernier épisode #CourSuprême de la présidence #Trump, qui vient après celui de #Kavanaugh et s'ajoute à l'échec total du procès en #impeachment, aura confirmé 2 faits majeurs dans l'équilibre institutionnel US...
3) D'1 part, au Congrès, le Sénat a 1 primauté complète sur la Chambre dont l'importance apparaît de plus en plus comme purement symbolique. Le Sénat, par son pouvoir de confirmation des juges fédéraux, des ministres et de destitution éventuelle d'1 président, est primordial...

La juge progressiste #RuthBaderGinsburg de la #CourSuprême est morte à 87 ans. A 45 jours de l'élection présidentielle, dans un pays déjà déchiré et enflammé. #Trump et les conservateurs du Sénat veulent la remplacer. Véritable test pour la démocratie US
washingtonpost.com/local/obituari…
2) Car le problème est simple: les juges conservateurs forment 1 majorité à 5 contre 4 à la Cour Suprême depuis les nominations de Thomas et Souter sous Bush Sr, il y a 30 ans. #Trump et les républicains du Sénat peuvent la passer à 6 contre 3 en remplaçant #Ginsburg...
3)...et alors me direz vous, #Trump est président jusqu'au 20 janvier 2021, les républicains ont la majorité au Sénat jusqu'au 6 janvier 2021, ils sont dans leur droit de vouloir remplacer #Ginsburg, les démocrates n'avaient qu'à gagner les élections...thehill.com/homenews/senat…

Prediction:
-There will be NO nominee announced to replace #RBGRIP until after #Election20120.

Here's why:
1. At least 4 GOP Members of the #Senate will come out against such a move-- for their personal political survival.
<1/n>
Why there will NOT be a nominee to replace #RBGRIP before #Election2020:

2. GOP will want to use this as primary election issue: Much harder to do this if they've already rammed a nomination through.
Why there will NOT be a nominee to replace #RBGRIP before #Election2020:

3. If election turns on a *specific* #SupremeCourt nominee (rather than a soon-to-be-named one): Huge risk for GOP, since no nominee will be fully vetted. They don't need replay of #Kavanaugh hearing.

Something tells me that @andersoncooper wouldn’t have been such a hack and disrespectful dickhead if that was an in-person interview today.

It’s easy to hide behind @Webex. Especially when you’re a dwarf-ass punk.
Please Read:

It’s interesting also that all of the headlines about @andersoncooper’s atrocious hack job on @realMikeLindell mentionioned “unproven therapeutics,” not hydroxychloroquine by name.

Mocking his faith was part of the sport.

Democrats are evil, vicious, hypocrites.

@Alyssa_Milano @joncoopertweets @TheDemocrats @SenSchumer @SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @KamalaHarris Unfortunately, we need to be prepared. Trump CAN reject the election, several ways.

Threadlet:

* He can declare a national emergency (which is why I think he's allowing COVID to get out of control — it's a means to his end

* The Constitution allows electors to be picked ...
@Alyssa_Milano @joncoopertweets @TheDemocrats @SenSchumer @SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @KamalaHarris ...via state legislatures not by direct election (citizens)

* Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution means states, not citizens, have the power to elect

* In 1824, only 18 states chose presidential electors by popular vote (6 via electors)

* Thus states can individually..
@Alyssa_Milano @joncoopertweets @TheDemocrats @SenSchumer @SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @KamalaHarris * pass laws (COVID reasons) to give presidential electors right to chose the president (ie, themselves, not citizen-voters)

* Jared Kushner already said they wanted to delay the election nytimes.com/2020/05/12/us/…

1) If you claim to be a #Liberal today, your world must be incredibly strange. There are two types of Liberal, the #elite overlords, and the useful idiots. You can decide for yourself where you fit. But there is no doubt that you EMPOWER the CORRUPT ESTABLISHMENT. Lets sum it up:
2) You believe that killing a baby is your "right", but killing newborn puppies or bird eggs should land you in jail.
3) You believed, without evidence, that #Trump was a puppet of #Russia. When he imposed brutal sanctions, you ignored it to preserve your world view.

I think this piece is accurate in the extremely narrow sense that there wasn’t a widespread hashtag but fails as cultural commentary.

A quick trip down memory lane to remind us what the conversation was related to #Kavanaugh & #MeToo back then.
nytimes.com/2020/05/18/opi…
So, first off, Faludi seems right that there wasn’t a huge #BelieveAllWomen phenomena, although “believe all women” was bantered about by some.

But this ignores the rush to believe women without or before evidence in a way that has clear political goals.
Instead of Ford - whose allegations clearly split the country in terms of their credibility - let’s focus on Julie Swetnick, once represented by Michael Avenatti. Her testimony was what started the “gang rape” narrative.

Idk why I'm thinking about this now, but remember how goshdarn *mad* Republicans pretended to be during the #Kavanaugh/impeachment hearings? Not righteous anger, the kind of mad when you're wrong & just want that feeling to go.

What was that like? Must have been weird for them
No sympathy for these goons here, just curiosity.

I sometimes feel real righteous anger on behalf of my clients. It's a clarifying fire, and I've learned to trust and channel its confidence when it comes. I saw nothing like that in these performances. Just a lot of bad actors
Anger is by definition righteous when it is on behalf of others. MLK expressed it like no one else, calling it a "transforming force."

I've come with some reluctance to believe that this kind of anger is the only path to true justice, to getting us all free

Des nouveaux faits rapportés par la presse sérieuse sur les accusations de #TaraReade contre #JoeBiden. Selon @businessinsider, 1 ancienne voisine à elle, démocrate qui votera pour l'ex-VP, se souvient qu'elle lui a raconté son agression sexuelle vers 1995.businessinsider.fr/us/former-neig…
2) 1 ex-collègue de travail de #TaraReade en #Californie dans les années 1990 confirme aussi qu'elle lui a parlé d'1 agression sexuelle dans son ancien job par son ex-patron- sans nommer #Biden. Pour les partisans de #Trump, aubaine politique accrue. washingtonpost.com/politics/devel…
3) Pour les conservateurs US, et le patron de la majorité républicaine au Sénat McConnell s'en est emparé avec gourmandise, les faits corroborant le récit de #TaraReade contre #Biden sont à comparer avec les accusations démocrates contre le juge #Kavanaugh.thehill.com/homenews/senat…

DIFFICULT THREAD -- #BIDEN SHOULD WITHDRAW

1. I respect the will of the voters.

2. But new information has emerged supporting #TaraReade's account of being sexually assaulted by #JoeBiden.

3. Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.
4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL.

5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw.

6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden.

7. #Bernie can restart his campaign.

8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.
9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump.

10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace "the lesser of two accused rapists."

11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win.

PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

Nuit surréaliste aux #EtatsUnis. Le gouverneur du Wisconsin Evers avait déplacé le scrutin prévu aujourd'hui au 9 juin à cause de la flambée du #coronavirus. La Cour Suprême locale et la Cour Suprême nationale à majorité conservatrice l'ont déjugé. Et #Trump s'en réjouit.

2) Evers le gouverneur du Wisconsin, face au début de l'épidémie dans l'Etat, a promulgué 1 décret exécutif qui reportait les élections prévues ce jour à cause de l'urgence sanitaire #Covid_19 au 9 juin et permettait 1 extension de la date du vote postal. elections.wi.gov/sites/election…
3) Les républicains, majoritaires à l'assemblée locale, ont dénié l'autorité du gouverneur Evers à pouvoir reporter l'élection en juin et la Cour Suprême locale à majorité conservatrice leur a donné raison sur ce point.

THREAD: DEM CROSSROADS — YOU PICK A DIRECTION

2020 is a major inflection point in American politics:

The Democratic Party is poised to become either a party of the people or a party of big money and GOP appeasement.

Which path do YOU choose?

Follow the facts & the money...
THREAD: DEM CROSSROADS (2)

First, let's get something out of the way:

The GOP is a rightwing extremist party, a threat to democracy.

But that doesn't give Dem leaders a free pass. It's our DUTY to hold politicians accountable. Unthinking party loyalty is a path to tyranny...
THREAD: DEM CROSSROADS (3)

If your overarching objective is to defeat Trump, let's see how we got here in the first place:

When Bush-Cheney launched a brutal war based on lies to open this century, most Dem leaders went right along — the same Dems in leadership roles today...

Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
