GOP Senator Attacks Dems Over Concern Barrett Will Overturn The ACA: 'Sell Crazy Somewhere Else' 28.9.2020 Crooks Liars
The big wigs over at Fox "news" must be at least somewhat concerned about their viewers looking unfavorably on losing their health insurance, or protections for those with preexisting conditions going away, because they're working the refs awfully hard to convince them that Trump's choice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court won't do what just about everyone else assumes she will do when the case on the Affordable Care Act comes before the court shortly after the presidential election. An article from Vox this weekend explained why most believe Amy Coney Barrett is likely to undercut the ...

CNN Host Hits Trump For 'Trying To Have It Both Ways' On Masks At MAGA Rallies 27.9.2020 Crooks Liars
While Fox chose to highlight Trump mocking Biden for social distancing at his events during yet another one of these super-spreader rallies in Middletown, Pennsylvania this Saturday -- as though his behavior is somehow humorous or something to be proud of -- the reporters over at CNN were appropriately appalled by the behavior. While reporting on the rally, anchor Ana Cabrera and field reporter Ryan Nobles hit Trump for the fact that the only people wearing masks at the event were the people on camera standing directly behind him. Cabrera also hit Trump for the lack of social distancing and masks at the Rose Garden event earlier that same day, where he announced his pick of Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme ...
'Help Me': Lindsey Graham Again Begs For Money On Fox News After Poll Shows Him Losing To Dem 27.9.2020 Crooks Liars
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday again appeared on Fox News to ask for money to fund his struggling campaign. During an interview on the Sunday Morning Futures program, Graham blamed his financial woes on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. "Democrats try to destroy Judge Barrett at their own peril," Graham said. "Their base is going nuts. They've raised $300 million, ActBlue has, since the passing of Justice Ginsburg." "I'm being out-raised 2-to-1," he continued. "Every Republican running in the Senate is being hit hard with all this money coming in from ActBlue. So if you want to help me, LindseyGraham.com. Five or ten bucks goes a long way." Graham returned to the subject several moments later. "I know the amount of money coming in since the death of Justice Ginsburg tells me there's a lot of energy out there to take out Judge Barrett," he said. "Help me and others -- LindseyGraham.com -- I hate to keep saying that but just the money is overwhelming." The plea for ...
'The Senate Must Stand Strong For Democracy':Joe Biden Responds To Trump's Supreme Court Nomination 27.9.2020 Crooks Liars
Joe Biden opposes any nomination to the Supreme Court in light of the fact that voting on the next president is underway now and the next president should make that nomination after being sworn in next year. He took a few questions at the end, confirming that he is not going to call his former Republican colleagues because it might "compromise" them, and refusing to comment on Trump's ridiculous call for drug tests. He also emphasized what it would mean to lose the Affordable Care Act through a bogus right-wing Supreme Court case. Remarks as prepared for delivery: Good afternoon. On Friday, Jill and I had the honor of paying our respects to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first woman in the history of our nation to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol. Though it should not have taken nearly this long to bestow that honor on a woman, it nevertheless speaks to the unique and powerful impact Justice Ginsburg made on our society and to her enduring legacy of equal rights and equal justice under law. Shortly ...

Trump On Amy Coney Barrett: 'I Guess She Maybe Would' Kill Abortion Rights 27.9.2020 Crooks Liars
President Donald Trump told Fox News that he expects Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to strike down Roe v. Wade and the right to have an abortion. Trump made the remarks in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox & Friends after host Pete Hegseth noted that the president had previously said that his Supreme Court picks would "automatically" overturn Roe v. Wade. "I didn't think it was for me to discuss that with her," Trump explained. "Because it's something that she's going to be ruling on. And this is what I was told -- although, I would have had the right to do that." "But if you look at her past actions and rulings, I guess, she maybe would be in the category that you mentioned," he added. "I don't know. I can say this, that she is certainly conservative in her views and her rulings. And we'll have to see how that all works ...
Civil Rights Attorney Reveals 'Amy Coney Barrett Is Sitting In A Stolen Judicial Seat Right Now' 27.9.2020 Crooks Liars
Civil rights attorney Leslie Proll -- an adviser to the NAACP -- revealed over the weekend that President Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court pick, Amy Coney Barrett, is current occupying a "stolen" seat on the bench. "Did you know Amy Coney Barrett is sitting in a stolen judicial seat right now?" Proll asked in a tweet on Saturday. "In May 2017, Trump nominated Barrett to IN seat on Seventh Circuit, which covers Indiana, Illinois & Wisconsin. This is same seat to which President Obama nominated Myra Selby, a Black woman, in 2016." "But Republican Senators blocked Selby’s confirmation and saved the seat for Donald Trump," she continued. "After Trump was elected Seventh Circuit lost its only Black judge to retirement. The Shelby appointment would have retained diversity on this court. Proll added: "Instead, Trump appointed four white individuals to Seventh Circuit, including Amy Barrett. The Seventh Circuit is now the only all-white federal appellate court in the country." Read the tweets below. Did you ...
