Originalism is an easy judicial philosophy to understand.

It consists of the present-day jurist projecting his or her own biases into the past and happily discovering that the founders had exactly the same biases. There is no recorded instance of this search coming up with a negative result.

A moderately intelligent monkey should be trainable to do this, so these jurists likely need their fancy degrees from the big name law schools to deflect from the essential stupidity and banality of their enterprise.

He’s trying to, but according to this list, he’s managed to get four judges confirmed to the Circuit Courts (one of which passed the Senate today 95-1) and two to the District Courts (one of whom was originally nominated by Obama and unanimously approved by the Senate).

I don’t recognize any of the names, so it’s tough for me to say whether these are decent appointments or not, but with all things Trump, it’s worth monitoring closely.

Cruz stands by Trump court pick who sees ‘Satan’s plan’ in transgender kids; Cornyn undecided

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ted Cruz said Thursday that he still supports federal judge nominee Jeff Mateer, a top lawyer for the state of Texas, despite revelations that Mateer has described transgender children as part of “Satan’s plan” and warned that same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy and bestiality.

Sen. John Cornyn said he was surprised to learn of those remarks, but hasn’t decided whether to withdraw his support.

The senators jointly recommended Mateer to President Donald Trump for a lifetime spot on the federal bench.

Derp over the NFL continues to appear in my Facebook stream.

The butthurt over these things recently is increasing, I propose, as Trump is revealed to be the loser he really is.

As this happens, his supporters will feel increasingly uncomfortable about how inept Trump becomes. Thus his ability to be their great white savior will be doubted, causing even more angst.

Derp begets derp.

Personally I think what you have is a dawning realization amongst the “working class” that Trump is not going to be the savior of the white race that they thought he would be when they voted for him. That the forces that inspired their “anxiety” are not being stalled or halted, but in fact are gaining speed in the face of ham-handed efforts to pound them into submission. And that the venues they once thought safe from “uppity” minorities are in fact the new battlegrounds.

i have the same visceral reaction to this story as far right guys do threats to the 2nd A. The thing is I regard the judicial branch as the solution of last resort before violence, while they embrace 2nd A violence as the last resort.Ugh. Let’s not get there.

Trumps appointments erode the civil solutions to injustice. Make violence more likely. In extremis, more justifiable. Every other past president in my fifty something life could be counted on to keep that intact, or even with Nixon attacked it in a purely selfish way. That’s not as bad as the current threat. As soon as a court upholds an injustice (see Manzanar) there is really no repairing the damage. The frightening example now is courts not convicting police on excess force.

Well, if that is the case the freakin’ Republicans in Congress may be more inclined to run Donny out of office. Any signal Trump’s base is crumbling may be all that is needed.

But we need to be quiet about it so as to not let the same dumbasses know that no matter what they do to Trump, they already have Trump Gunk all over them and it is going to hurt them no matter what.

The longer this goes, the worse it will be for Trump and for the GOP Congress.

I suspect that Moore’s election to the Senate in November (barring unforeseen events) will lead to utter panic in the GOP upper ranks. Their whole plan going forward was contesting (and winning) enough blue/purple seats to rebuild their losses in the past two elections. Instead, they’re now going to be facing a lot of bruising primary fights that will not only burn up campaign funds but also put them on the wrong side of an increasingly dissatisfied electorate.

That’s an amusing comment, but it’s easy to write a sentence that explains the tr*mp presidency even better than this.

E.g., The Republican party is a cancer on the nation, and tr*mp is the acute tumor crisis from this cancer that makes it an imminent mortal threat.

Many others, both here and elsewhere, have also done better. The reason for all of these successes is that the Republicans are properly blamed, as opposed to the common media pretense that these savages somehow remain an acceptable political party.

Gonna go out on a limb. Even if Trump makes it to run again he will lose. He will lose because he is too unstable to maintain the power base to win again.

He’ll lose if he runs again (if Mueller doesn’t get him by 2020) and lose only if Democrats come out in force and vote for the Democratic candidate, even if he/she isn’t perfect, i.e., even if he/she isn’t up to their stringent and unreachable standard of purity.

If Susan Sarandon and other purity pushers have the nerve to come out against the next Democratic Presidential candidate in 2020, hopefully they’ll be denounced into oblivion. I really don’t want to hear anything they have to say and hope they’ve lost any influence on voters by then.

Tweety Matthews was just showing some of the devastation out on Vieques island (PR). That is where my friend Ode lives.

I saw this article from a few days ago and had a sinking feeling. It does not sound good. This sucks. At least she lives in a mostly concrete structure. I hope she and the doggies got through this.

When they say: “a near-complete blackout since before Maria roared through” it sort of confirms what I was thinking. She may have lost communications when Irma went just north of her. Then came Maria.

WaPo - Island of Vieques remains isolated and silent since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico

VIEQUES, PUERTO RICO — The power went out on this small island hours before Hurricane Maria really made her presence known. It was dark when the bands of wind and rain started to whip through. It was 3 a.m. Wednesday when it got almost supernaturally loud.

The wind was loud. The debris was loud. The container house blowing off its foundation and slamming to the ground was loud. Then the wind stopped. The sun rose.

Then, silence.

This island community of about 9,000 people off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico was hit hard, and it has been in a near-complete blackout since before Maria roared through. Like many isolated areas of Puerto Rico, it remains without power, phones or any way to connect with the mainland — nearly a week after the hurricane. Gas is scarce, food is scarce, there is no drinking water and information is almost nonexistent.

Bannon’s strategy is their strategy:

In most of these races, he will be opposing the Republican establishment’s candidate. Furthermore, if Bannon’s candidate wins in the primary, it may open the way for a Democratic victory in the general election. Bannon knows that, of course, and doesn’t care since he is trying to send the Republicans a message: If you don’t support my candidate, you will lose the seat.

That’s a rapidly moving story, and I’ve seen cost estimates for Price’s ego stroking as high as $1 Million.

So Price may be offering to repay at 5 cents on the dollar, which sounds like business as usual for a tr*mpist grift.

Ugh. He is sceptical of how much effect the Facebook Ads and Twitter bots had in the vast world of the digital world and internet.

Malcolm Nance had to explain how they got Americans to propagate and expand their reach by enthusiastically talking about and sharing the ad content/links.

Hayes was thinking the Facebook ad buy was too small to be all that effective. He said $100,000 wasn’t that much. Nance said it is now up to around $260,000.

Maybe this is where gadabout and overall strange dude Carter Page comes in. Would not surprise me if Roger Stone might also be involved. It will be someone on the fringe but known by the Trump campaign.

There might not have had to be a lot of coordination, but I would almost bet there was some communication at least so the Trumpers knew what was the fake stuff so they could watch.

Startling because why? Probably a bit over the top, but Hef was no feminist, and a crappy role model. Centerfolds were airbrushed, idealized young men’s fantasies. Sexual liberation was strictly so men could have more sex, preferably without any responsibility, not so that women could enjoy their own bodies.

My friend sent me some of the, ahem, more detailed accounts of the bedroom parties last night. I was disgusted.

It’s probably too soon, but i knew given his history a lot of critiques are bound to come out in the spotlight.

And you’re spot on with your last sentence.

Charlie Daniels and his ilk must be tuned into Thursday Night Football, since it’s not Wednesday now, and missed it

My dad texted me, telling me he was boycotting the NFL now. I wonder how long that’ll last.

I hope this doesn’t mean I have to take up watching football to make up for the loss of an audience member.

Too late, or way too soon. Nobody has any class anymore. You don’t publish something like that right when someone died.

That stuff is not new. It’s been in the news for years. Hef was a pig. But those girls let him get away with it for fame and money.

Hef was a cultural icon. I don’t think it’s a culture I’d be interested in. He was a controlling asshole from many accounts that I’ve read.
