fight like hell:

    Rep. Jamie Raskin’s past tweets have been recently unearthed by conservative media outlets eager to demonstrate the alleged hypocrisy of the Lead House Impeachment Manager currently prosecuting former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment. The Save America PAC’s “Trump War Room” tweeted a “FLASHBACK” screenshot of a past Raskin tweet that the NY Post breathlessly described as expressing “notion of combat to block Republican efforts to swiftly replace the late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg” after she died last year. Raskin used the phrase “We must fight like hell to stop this assault on health care and the Constitution”: The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, women’s health care and reproductive freedom, and the voting rights and civil rights of the people. We must fight like hell to stop this assault on health care and the Constitution. https://t.co/WBSRAG40wz — Rep. Jamie...
    Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., leading the impeachment prosecution of former President Donald Trump for "incitement to insurrection," called for supporters to "fight like hell" to halt the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last fall. It was one of at least four instances the Save America PACs Trump War Room Twitter account found with Raskin urging followers to "fight" or "fight like hell" – a phrase House Democrats said Trump used 20 times in his speech at a rally in Washington on Jan. 6 and was key to their claim he incited the crowd to breach the U.S. Capitol. "The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, womens healthcare and reproductive freedom, and the voting rights and civil rights of the people," Raskin posted to Twitter on Sept. 20. "We must fight like hell to stop this assault on healthcare and...
    UNEARTHED tweets and video show impeachment managers in the trial against Donald Trump using the words "fight like hell" to speak to their supporters. The phrase plays a key role in Trump's second impeachment trial, as Democrats say the former president used similar language to incite the January 6 attack on the Capitol. 5Rep Raskin used the phrase 'fight like hell' in a September 2020 tweetCredit: AP:Associated Press 5Rep Swalwell used the phrase during a 2019 interview with CNNCredit: AP:Associated Press Pro-Trump PAC Save America unearthed a video of California Rep Eric Swalwell and old tweets from Maryland Rep Jamie Raskin using the same language Trump used in his speech before the deadly riot.

    Republicans on Wednesday dug up past instances of Democratic House impeachment managers and President Biden using the words “fight” or “fight like hell” — one of the key allegations against former President Donald Trump at his Senate trial. The Save America PAC’s “Trump War Room” tweeted a “FLASHBACK” screenshot of lead House manager Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) invoking the notion of combat to block Republican efforts to swiftly replace the late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death in September. “The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, women’s health care and reproductive freedom, and the voting rights and civil rights of the people,” Raskin tweeted at the time. “We must fight like hell to stop this assault on health care and the Constitution.” In another tweet unearthed by the Trump War Room, Raskin exhorted, “This is our Democracy–fight for...

    The Trump War Room is firing back at the House Democrat impeachment managers who were making their case against former President Donald Trump during the opening arguments of his trial.  On Wednesday, the impeachment managers spent hours attempting to convince enough senators to convict the former president that he incited the insurrection on Capitol Hill last month. Much of their argument relied on Trump's rhetoric, including when he told his supporters on the National Mall on Jan. 6 to "fight like hell." However, the Trump War Room turned the tables on the Democrats by reviving various examples of them using the same language. The Trump campaign account pointed to a "FLASHBACK" of Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., the leading impeachment manager, who said during a 2019 interview with The Atlantic he'd "fight like hell" for the Constitution on the subject of the conservative-controlled Supreme Court and judiciary.

    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump's legal team accused House Democrats of engaging in "political theater" and argued that the upcoming Senate impeachment trial is unconstitutional because Trump is no longer President."This was only ever a selfish attempt by Democratic leadership in the House to prey upon the feelings of horror and confusion that fell upon all Americans across the entire political spectrum upon seeing the destruction at the Capitol on January 6 by a few hundred people," Trump's lawyers wrote in a pretrial brief filed Monday. LIVE UPDATES: Trump's second impeachment trial starts TuesdayThe 75-page legal brief from Trump's attorneys expands upon their initial response to the House's impeachment last week, in which they argued that the trial was unconstitutional, that Trump didn't incite the rioters and that his speech spreading false conspiracies about widespread election fraud is protected by the First Amendment. The brief filed Monday claims that Trump's speech...
    It sounds like Conor McGregor plans on fighting Dustin Poirier for a third time. McGregor got blasted by Poirier last Saturday night at UFC 257, and it was one of the most shocking losses I’ve ever seen.

    TALLAHASSEE(CBSMiami/NSF) – Republican legislative leaders are lauding a sweeping school-choice measure filed Thursday, while Senate Democrats have vowed to “fight like hell” against the proposal. The legislation, filed by Republican Sen. Manny Diaz of Hialeah, would expand eligibility for school-voucher programs, consolidate existing school-choice programs and allow parents to use taxpayer-backed education savings accounts for private schools and other costs. “Using funds Florida taxpayers have already dedicated to education, this legislation consolidates our scholarship programs to make it clear what options are available to parents, and expands eligibility to provide more options to more low income families and families with a child with unique abilities,” Diaz wrote in a press release on Thursday. Diaz’s proposal (SB 48) would expand the existing Family Empowerment Scholarship, which currently serves middle- and low-income students, in part by combining it with the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship. Under the Tax Credit Scholarship program, businesses receive...
    'He must go.' The House of Representatives on Wednesday debated whether to impeach Donald Trump on one article of incitement of insurrection related to the violent Capitol riots on Jan. 6. Just before the mob descended on the Capitol, Trump had egged on supporters at a so-called "Save America" rally, saying, "We fight like hell, and if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore. ... You'll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong." Since Trump's presidential election defeat, he has also repeatedly incited his base, unleashing a flurry of lawsuits to overturn his loss claiming brazenly that the race was somehow "stolen" from him.
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House impeachment debate on Wednesday heard a distorted account of President Donald Trump’s remarks to his supporters a week ago when he exhorted them to “fight like hell” before they swarmed the Capitol. REP. GUY RESCHENTHALER, R-Pa.: “At his rally, President Trump urged attendees to, quote, unquote, peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. There was no mention of violence, let alone calls to action.” THE FACTS: Trump’s speech was a call to action — a call to fight and save the country. “Our country has had enough,” he told those who went on to stage the violent siege of the Capitol. “We will not take it anymore and that’s what this is all about. To use a favorite term that all of you people really came up with, we will stop the steal.” Reschenthaler accurately quoted a line from Trump, when the president told supporters...

    DALTON, Ga. (AP) — With mounting desperation, Donald Trump declared he would “fight like hell” to hold on to the presidency and appealed to Republican lawmakers to reverse his election loss to Joe Biden when they convene this week to confirm the Electoral College vote. Electoral voters won by President-elect Biden are “not gonna take this White House!” he shouted as supporters cheered at an outdoor rally Monday night in Georgia. Trump’s announced purpose for the trip was to boost Republican Senate candidates in Tuesday’s runoff election, but he spent much of his speech complaining bitterly about his election loss — which he insists he won “by a lot.” Earlier, in Washington, he pressed Republican lawmakers to formally object Wednesday at a joint session of Congress that is to confirm Biden’s victory in the Electoral College, itself a confirmation of Biden’s nationwide victory Nov. 3. Though he got nothing...

    UFC giant Conor McGregor hasn’t responded to Jake Paul’s challenge, despite the latter’s comments on his wife and boxing career. It seems, the ‘Notorious’ is more interested in serious fights as he is gearing up for the rematch with Dustin Poirier at lightweight, which will headline UFC 257 on January 23. However, Jake Paul is adamant about fighting McGregor as he already offered him $50 million. But UFC chief Dana White has ruled out the fight. instead, he has offered to let Amanda Nunes battle ‘The Problem Child’. Well, there’s another YouTuber boxer, who believes anything can happen, and if it does, he bills it as an ‘L’ for Conor McGregor. KSI, who earlier beat Jake Paul’s brother Logan Paul, recently put his opinion on the whole McGregor-Paul drama. While he mostly believes McGregor wouldn’t accept the fight, a part of him says he might. In his podcast, KSI cleared...
    Friday night, when the news of the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hit, I was struck by the same wave of hopeless despair that anyone who cares about the future of this country felt. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the weight of the world rested on the shoulders of this diminutive 87-year-old woman who had been battling cancer for many years. With her death, Donald Trump and the Senate Republicans, led by the depraved liar and hypocrite Mitch McConnell, have the power to fill her seat on the Supreme Court with another right wing extremist. With a comfortable 6-3 conservative majority on the court, the Republican mission to dismantle the already battered remains of our democracy will be protected from the occasional bout of conscience from Chief Justice John Roberts. Things are bad. Really, really bad. It would be foolish to deny it. We have a reality TV fascist...
    Under the guise of seeking to “prevent a constitutional crisis,” a massive network of well funded left-wing activists and progressive groups are training, organizing, and planning to mobilize millions of Americans should President Trump “contest the election results,” refuse to concede, or claim an early victory. More than 80 advocacy groups and grassroots organizations have joined in a broad coalition calling itself “Protect the Results” and proclaiming that “we cannot ignore the threat that Trump poses to our democracy and a peaceful transition of power.”  The coalition is a joint project of Indivisible and Stand Up America, two left-wing groups founded in response to President Trump’s 2016 election and whose goals are “to organize and resist Trump’s dangerous agenda” and “to defeat Trump and his enablers.”  Seeking to “protect” election results by use of its millions of members, the coalition calls to “take coordinated action” and “prepare for a potential...
    For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters. After a yearslong fight for equal protection in a bathroom access battle that’s made Gavin Grimm a trans hero, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that it’s a violation of Title IX to bar students from bathrooms that match their gender identities. Grimm made national news in 2015 when his Virginia high school refused to let him use the boys’ room. Now 20, he celebrated the “incredible affirmation” not just for him “but for trans youth around the country.” In a tweet yesterday, Grimm shouted out the relentless solidarity that sustained him: “Thank you to everyone at the @ACLU for inviting me in like family and fighting like hell to make sure justice was served.” “Fighting like hell” will be familiar if who’ve heard our namesake’s best-known quote, “Pray for the dead, and fight...
