Justice Kennedy was not planning to resign next term. We know, because he had already appointed his clerks for that term. He suddenly resigned BECAUSE his son, worked for Deutsche Bank... /1
...indicted in the EU for being a conduit for money laundering for Russian Oligarchs. He resigned because his son's client - had been Donald Trump, for whom, he had arranged up to $1 billion in Deutsche Bank "loans." These funds likely, were monies originating from... /2
...Russian oligarchs connected to Putin - being laundered through the bank, with the knowledge of #Kennedy's son. In other words - Kennedy's son could be esnared in the #Mueller investigation - perhaps, vulnerable to indictment himself. In this eventuality, you can be certain- /3
Etrange réveil ce matin aux #EtatsUnis, jamais peut-être depuis aussi longtemps 1 société n'est apparue aussi divisée, en proie à des tensions violentes que les institutions ne parviennent plus à tempérer et exacerbent parfois...#thread#Trump
2) Après la tuerie de masse du journal @capitalgazette, les médias nationaux repassent en boucle cette scène où le président US #Trump refuse de s'exprimer pour réconforter victimes, familles, concitoyens...le président n'est plus le "consolateur en chef"
3)...cette nouvelle tuerie du Maryland, où 1 déséquilibré a voulu régler 1 vendetta personnelle avec 1 journal, voit aussi les #EtatsUnis découvrir qu'1 polémiste"nationaliste-identitaire"ayant son rond de serviette chez Fox et Breitbart, peut appeler au meurtre de #journalistes
THREAD: Ok- so they have the Senate, House, & Executive and #Kennedy just gave them the Judiciary for the next 30 years. Now what? In 2004 Obama said there was no Red or Blue America. He tried to govern that way. He lost. WE lost.
With #SCOTUS set to eviscerate civil rights, it will be all about the States. One set of restrictive laws for Red America and one set of progressive laws for Blue America. We tried to protect all Americans. They wouldn't let us. So now what?
If they plan to defund everything, let's outdo them. Let's vote to cut federal income taxes. They can cover only military. Divide Social security up by population and give it to the states. Let each state administer it. Same with Medicare & Medicaid.
For those new to #SCOTUS politics, #Kennedy is the median Justice -- his retirement, and replacement w/a more conservative Justice, would shift the Court's median substantially right. This would have been the difference on a number of 5-4 cases in which AMK voted w/the liberals.
Hugely important. More impactful than replacing Scalia with Gorsuch, though not as impactful as it would have been to replace Scalia with Garland. Ramifications of this will last at least a generation.
Liberals are looking at a **best case** scenario of being 5-4 in the minority for at least a decade or so, depending on presidential politics and the health of Thomas (age 70), Ginsburg (85), and Breyer (79).
OMG this week isn't bad enough: JUSTICE KENNEDY JUST ANNOUNCED HE IS RETIRING. A president whose legitimacy is under question for a rigged election, who attacks the US constitution and American values—gets to appoint yet ANOTHER Supreme Court Justice. Things are very very wrong.
So much for an independent judiciary. Justice Kennedy retiring now assures his political party—a Republican—gets to appoint his successor AND puts the Supreme Court on Nov ballot. Which should also put more pressure on every last American to stand up to Trump dismantling America.
.@SteveSchmidtSES: Trump lost popular vote by 3 million yet GOP controls all branches of govt. A minority rules the majority of a country opposed to the president. That's extremely unhealthy for democracy. Dems must block any Supreme Court nom before Nov election.#Kennedy#SCOTUS
2. Take the Rothschilds, the bloodline formerly known, among other names, as the Bauers, one of the most notorious black occult bloodlines of Middle Ages Germany. It became known as Rothschild (red-shield or rotes-schild in German)
3. in the 18th century a financial dynasty was founded in Frankfurt by Mayer Amschel Rothschild working in league with the Illuminati House of Hesse and others.
They took their name from the red shield or hexagram/Star of David atop of their house in Frankfurt. #Rothschilds
