President Trump:

    (CNN)Harold Wilson led Britain as prime minister for much of the 1960s and a shorter stint in the 1970s. Reputed to be a favorite of Queen Elizabeth II, the pipe-smoking Labour Party leader was a character in the most recent season of "The Crown." Wilson is usually credited with saying, "A week is a long time in politics."His aphorism certainly fits the tumultuous events of the past week -- and maybe the coming one too. The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18 suddenly allowed President Donald Trump to pick his candidate for a pivotal seat on the top court. And, as the week advanced, it became clear that he would gain almost unanimous support from...

    Reuters September 27, 2020 0 Comments Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and others in his party on Saturday blasted President Donald Trump’s choice of conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court, focusing in particular on the threat they said she would pose to healthcare for millions of Americans. Biden noted that even as Trump’s administration is seeking to strike down Obamacare in a case the Supreme Court is due to hear on Nov. 10, Barrett has a “written track record” criticizing a pivotal 2012 ruling authored by Chief Justice John Roberts preserving the law formally known as the Affordable Care Act. Biden, seeking to defeat the Republican president on Nov. 3, called on the Senate not to...
    When President Trump ran for office in 2016, one of the most important pledges he made was that if elected, he would appoint qualified, constitutional originalist judges to the federal courts. Four years later, chalk that up as just one more example of “Promise Made and Promise Kept.” Working hand-in-glove with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., President Trump has reshaped the federal bench at a record clip, installing more federal judges over the past nearly four years — 217 of them — than any president in the past four decades. President Trump’s judicial appointments will shape the courts for generations to come, and to that end he hit a homerun with his nomination Saturday of 7th U.S. Circuit Court...
    The idea that President Trump is "anti-military" and is suspicious of U.S. intelligence agencies is an untrue "media narrative," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News' "Life, Liberty & Levin" in an interview airing Sunday night. "There’s an effort underway before this election to try and paint the president of the United States as anti-military, and it is shocking to me, absolutely shocking to me," host Mark Levin told Pompeo. "I know him, you know him. He adores the military. As you go around the world and you see our military personnel, are they proud of this country? Are they proud of this president? Are they proud to see you?" "Absolutely. Every day, always ..." Pompeo answered. "This week, I’ll head to...
    President Trump told "Fox & Friends" co-host Pete Hegseth that he thinks his nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, will be a textualist. "Mostly, I'm looking for somebody that can interpret the Constitution as written," he said during the exclusive one-on-one interview following the nomination, set to air Sunday at 6 a.m. ET. "We say it all the time and [Judge Amy Coney Barrett] is very strong on that." Barrett said Saturday in accepting the nomination that she has the same judicial philosophy as the late Justice Antonin Scalia, which is to "apply the law as written."

    David Masciotra September 27, 2020 10:00AM (UTC) The president of the United States wants you dead. Throughout the dystopian horror of the past four years, critics of the Trump administration have speculated, with persuasive evidence and analysis, that Donald Trump and his gaggle of ghouls — Jared Kushner, Bill Barr, Stephen Miller, et al. — are both incompetent to prevent death and indifferent to the onslaught of death if the victims, whether they lose their lives in a largely preventable pandemic, a natural disaster caused by climate change, or at the hands of police or right-wing terrorists, are not white, rich and Republican. : Recent revelations should force Americans to consider an even darker reality, and gather insight into...
    “People are dying, tens of thousands of people are out of work—he’s embarrassing,” is not only the quote of the year from former Hillary Clinton senior adviser Philippe Reines, but also sums up how he, Rick Wilson, Molly Jong-Fast, and Lincoln Project co-founder Mike Madrid feel about Donald Trump’s dwindling support among his own base. To make matters worse for the president, he is set to debate Joe Biden for the first time Tuesday night, and he doesn’t have that same 2016 anger and energy he drummed up to defeat Hillary Clinton. In this new members-only bonus episode of The New Abnormal, Rick, Molly, Philippe and Mike discuss what Joe Biden should say, word for word, when he gets on...
    A former aide to Vice President Mike Pence has said that White House staffers discussed the possibility that President Donald Trump would refuse to leave office if he loses the November 3 election. Olivia Troye is a former counterterrorism adviser to Pence who last week joined the campaign against Trump and said she'd be voting for Biden, and has been making the rounds in media interviews. In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday, she said that and other staffers held 'closed door' conversations regarding the president's potential unwillingness to exit the office after his term expires.  'It's frightening to me, because to be honest, during my tenure at the White House, I've had conversations behind closed doors with...
    Judge Amy Coney Barrett was showered with praise from supporters who called her a “brilliant” choice for the Supreme Court and swatted down attacks on her faith and family. Sen. Lindsey Graham, the Republican chair of the Judiciary Committee, dubbed Barrett an “outstanding” nominee. “Judge Barrett is highly qualified in all the areas that matter – character, integrity, intellect, and judicial disposition,” Graham tweeted shortly after President Trump announced Barrett as his pick.

            by Julie Kelly  We went from Never Trump to Never Constitution in a nanosecond, it seems. Entrenched foes of the president base their opposition on the unproven allegation Donald Trump is staining our democracy and defiling the Constitution. That arc now has reached almost full circle as the president’s enemies, desperate to deprive him of any victory, are concocting harebrained compromises outside the clear boundaries of the Constitution related to the next Supreme Court justice. Now who’s not representing the very foundation of American democracy? You can expect this from Democrats, as they have forever lost a mighty tool in their arsenal. When then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2013 torched the use of the filibuster for...
    (CNN)Should Joe Biden win the upcoming US presidential election, his first and overwhelming foreign policy challenge will be winning back the trust of America's allies. With the planet in its most chaotic period since World War II, a steady Biden leadership could potentially reset the world order -- but only with allies' help. European allies in particular will be hoping that if he does become president, Biden swiftly makes a convincing case that President Donald Trump's four years in office were an anti-democratic aberration that can never be repeated. Without such an understanding it will be difficult to convince friendly nations that Biden's own replacement won't renege on deals he makes.Biden committed to this during a speech in New York...

Gorsuch of the Supreme Court, on Saturday’s SiriusXM Special Report with host Matt Boyle. “To be sure, she is a conservative,” Jaffer said of Barrett. ‘Nobody should doubt that, and nobody should doubt that that’s exactly who the president was going to nominate.

He nominated Brett Kavanaugh, and now he’s nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett.” Jaffer continued, “[Donald Trump] told the world he is going to nominate...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump announced the news Saturday. The selection is likely to energize the president's base weeks before Election Day.Barrett, a judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and a devout Roman Catholic, has been hailed by religious conservatives and others on the right as an ideological heir to conservative icon Antonin Scalia, the late Supreme Court justice for whom she clerked. But liberals say her legal views are too heavily influenced by her religious beliefs and fear her ascent to the nation's highest court could lead to a scaling back of hard-fought...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/CBS) – On Saturday afternoon in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump announced conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee. If confirmed, Barrett would fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat, which was left vacant after she passed away on Sept. 18. Ginsburg was a champion of women’s rights and a strong liberal voice on the court.

In 1993, she was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton, and held the position until her death.

    Hardly a day goes by without another book about the Trump White House - by a devoted former aide or a disgruntled ex-employee. Together, what do they tell us about the man? "Has there ever been a presidency like this?" the author of one of the many, many books about President Donald Trump is asked. "I assured him there had not," was the reply. Trump, the high-profile businessman and reality star who upset the odds to become president, was always going to be a popular literary subject. And those books keep on coming.

    Dennis Quaid is taking heat for joining a $300 million federal public service campaign that reportedly will put a positive spin on the Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 emergency. Since news of the ad blitz first broke on Politico, it has been earning criticism –including for its choice of celebrities set to tape spots. “The Big Easy” star has publicly praised President Trump’s handling of the virus, and has already taped an ad with administration infectious-disease expert Anthony Fauci, Politico reported Friday.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Saturday, capping a dramatic reshaping of the federal judiciary that will resonate for a generation and that he hopes will provide a needed boost to his reelection effort. Republican senators are already lining up for a swift confirmation of Barrett ahead of the Nov. 3 election, as they aim to lock in conservative gains in the federal judiciary before a potential transition of power.

    ‘America will always be a leader in human rights,’ Trump said It’s not only in the United States where protests against racial injustice are part of the national conversation. A handful of America’s critics have taken note too, using recent months’ demonstrations and graphic images of police violence to denounce the country at the United Nations’ gathering of world leaders this year. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani invoked the killing of George Floyd, the Black American man who died after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed his knee against his neck even as he repeatedly said he could not breathe. Floyd’s death, caught on video, set off nationwide protests in support of Black lives.  Read More: Making 911 calls based...
