'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.

Blue America Endorses "Good Trouble" Candidate Nikema Williams 7.9.2020 Crooks Liars
Georgia's 5th congressional district-- most of Atlanta-- hasn't been in play since 1986, the legendary John Lewis' first term. In fact, Republicans have never run a serious campaign in the D+34 district and Lewis usually ran unopposed. This cycle, Trump pardoned a crackpot right-wing sociopath and felon, Angela Stanton-King, who had served almost 3 years of her prison sentence for running a car theft ring, a kind of female, later-day Darrell Issa. Two weeks after Trump pardoned her, she announced she was running against John Lewis, a beloved congressman by everyone except Trump, who hated him with the passion of the KKK thug that he's always been at heart. After Lewis died, the Democrats nominated state Senator Nikema Williams to run for his seat. Williams, who is also the chair of the Georgia Democratic Party, was diagnosed with COVID-19 in March and has since fully recovered and her support for Medicare for All has grown even stronger as the result of her experience. In 2018, she was arrested at a ...
