Someone far smarter and brighter than I noted that in order to become a better person, you should surround yourself with people smarter, more articulate, and better so that they can not only lift you up, but you strive to be better too.

I have to believe that the corollary is true: if you surround yourself with the dregs of humanity - amoral, corrupt, criminal, and complicit people, you too will be compromised and complicit in wrongdoing.

We saw both extremes in the past two administrations. Obama tried bringing out the best in the people in his administration and he sought out the best and most qualified to advise him.

Trump’s picked corrupt and criminal cronies. We’re seeing the damage being wrought on the nation daily thanks to Trump getting his regressive and reactionary policies getting reinforced by his right wing corrupt cronies.

The new SCOTUS appointment has the potential to have a far greater impact on people’s day to day lives than nearly anything that Trump has done to date or is contemplating doing—the attempt to re-instate the ability for insurance carriers to discriminate based on pre-existing conditions being the only one with possible greater significance.

this is true

and lets understand this as a single isolated thing

kennedy was luck or fate or timing. no one played the refs or did anything underhanded. its been clear for quite some time that this could happen. we all talked about it before the election. (merrick garland not withstanding)

trump is president
he gets to do this
and it sucks
and yes garland/gorsuch makes it worse

in and of itself, an opening, maybe 2 was likely to happen under any circumstances

im not saying its good in any way. only that it was somewhat forseeable

Jack Burton  Jun 28, 2018 • 12:25:17pm

People seem to forget that SCOTUS justices can be impeached, and with seemingly a low bar to warrant it based on actual historical precedent.

Samuel Chase was impeached by the House of Representatives for…. no not corruption or treason or murdering children… but for “being too partisan and biased in his rulings”. The Senate cleared him, but it seems obvious to me that getting both houses of Congress could potentially undo the whole “fucked for decades” thing really fast if the Democrats can grow a spine.

Light moment anyone?

The Daily Mirror reports that photographer Nicolas Chinardet had been commissioned by QX Magazine to photograph members of an LGBT Christian group at a central London church for a feature article.

Chinardet posted on his Facebook page that he was “shooting a few Christians,” and apparently that phrasing ran afoul of Facebook’s text-analyzing algorithms. 30 minutes later, the photographer’s account was suddenly suspended for 24 hours without any means of appeal. He then took to Twitter to express his frustration with the ban.

Problem there is that every single one of the 25 potential candidates that are on Trump’s list are there precisely because of their odious views and arch-conservatism. They’re being chosen not for their jurisprudence but for pure partisan ratfuckery.

Their being slammed at both ends.
1. Due to Trumps Tariffs, they’re almost certainly paying more for parts and raw materials (or soon will be)
2. They’re hit with tariffs on exports motorcycles produced in the US
3. In addition, I’m sure Trump has done wonders for the brand name abroad.

re: #100 Single-handed sailor

Since Trump became president, we’ve seen a jump in politicians & political groups who could want to influence the administration’s policies spending big money at his properties. This raises uncomfortable questions about whether the president can be bought

they are not “uncomfortable” questions
they are necessary questions - that virtually never had to be asked before

and yes, any moran can see he has been bought. over and over

to question whether he has is to be a moran

re: #12 Charles Johnson

Not gonna lie - I’m seriously depressed about the future of the US today. If Trump gets to appoint another right wing justice, and he probably will, we are simply fucked. For a long, long time. There’s not going to be any quick fix for this.

Sure, stay strong. Keep fighting. Et cetera. I’m not giving up. But the tiny flame of hope is in danger of flickering out.

nah. we’ll pack the court. seriously. there is absolutely no reason we can’t have 11 justices on the court. the other issue will be that IF Trump is both impeached and removed, his picks will be politely and quietly asked to resign. It would be intolerable for it to turn out that the Manchurian Candidate gets two lifetime picks to control 1/3 of the checks and balances.

If Trump is gone the GOP remains, but your sermon sounds nice.
They deal with him in large part because of the court. The Kochs, Mercers and a bunch of entrenched powers are not going to quietly let them resign.

re: #33 dangerman

this is true

and lets understand this as a single isolated thing

kennedy was luck or fate or timing. no one played the refs or did anything underhanded. its been clear for quite some time that this could happen. we all talked about it before the election. (merrick garland not withstanding)

trump is president
he gets to do this
and it sucks
and yes garland/gorsuch makes it worse

in and of itself, an opening, maybe 2 was likely to happen under any circumstances

im not saying its good in any way. only that it was somewhat forseeable

Exactly. People are going to have to learn the hard way that voting for Republicans or voting third party in general elections is voting for Judge Borks’ America.

re: #40 sagehen

If it gives anybody a bit of hope…. let me point out that Earl Warren, Sandra Day O’Connor and David Souter all turned out to be not nearly as conservative as the presidents who appointed them expected.

The US right has learned from these problems, and now dispenses much more reliable products (Alito, Gorsuch).

re: #101 Big Beautiful Door

When the Democrats regain power, they simply must add two seats to the Court to restore balance. Its not a radical suggestion; the GOP ended all norms when they stole the seat from Garland.

If they have the votes for that, they would have the votes (but probably not the spines) to impeach all Trump judicial appointments. If the election of 2016 is proven to be fraudulent, such housecleaning would seem to be a no-brainer.

There’s this too, if impeaching any of them seems to be a Bridge Too Far.
