Trump is considering two women for the Supreme Court. He respects women bigly.

So there's already noise about Collins and/or Murkowski possibly voting against a judge who would overturn RvW, and it seems like most expect McCain to abstain.

This seems to backed up by the fact that the WH is openly courting Red State Democrats, which it seems they wouldn't need to do if they had all the votes on their side.

Unfortunately, it's probably entirely likely a couple of those Red State Democrats - Heitkamp, Manchin, McCaskill, etc. - might just flip for fear of losing their elections this year. The pressure on these Red State Democrats is going to be immense from both sides.

It’s such a silly game when knowing a judge has x-view means that we know they can just overturn something. For better or for worse. It’s like the case is predetermined. Why would they even deliberate?

After the "election" in 2000 the Supreme Court was forever exposed as partisan hacks.

There are supposed to be above it all, instead they are just part of the circus.

Did anyone protest today?

I went to the Brooklyn part of NYC's protest. I should've made my own poster. But I am so glad that I took part and did something, after feeling so helpless for the last couple of weeks.

I was going to march downtown but it got moved to be a demonstration at a federal detention center. Super conevenient to where I live, but two hours before the official start time it was a crazy crowded mob scene, so I passed.

To try and lighten the mood a little bit, I just saw Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Colbert's show earlier. She seems pretty cool, and actually gives me some hope going forward.
That this is a story when the president lies a dozen times per day is asinine... alas, that Ocasio-Cortez spent most of her childhood in an upper middle class suburb in Westchester and not in the Bronx like she claims might come back to bite her in the ass.

oh dear, it might.
Maybe she did spend some time in the Bronx though.

I was hoping to go but I had to work in a project and it was going slowly.

I can't believe I missed you guys!

i know this isn't exactly "US politics" -- but it's important to watch Europe as well, as even socialist democratic supposed paradises like Denmark have issues.

Quote:
COPENHAGEN — When Rokhaia Naassan gives birth in the coming days, she and her baby boy will enter a new category in the eyes of Danish law. Because she lives in a low-income immigrant neighborhood described by the government as a “ghetto,” Rokhaia will be what the Danish newspapers call a “ghetto parent” and he will be a “ghetto child.”

Starting at the age of 1, “ghetto children” must be separated from their families for at least 25 hours a week, not including nap time, for mandatory instruction in “Danish values,” including the traditions of Christmas and Easter, and Danish language. Noncompliance could result in a stoppage of welfare payments. Other Danish citizens are free to choose whether to enroll children in preschool up to the age of six.

Denmark’s government is introducing a new set of laws to regulate life in 25 low-income and heavily Muslim enclaves, saying that if families there do not willingly merge into the country’s mainstream, they should be compelled.

For decades, integrating immigrants has posed a thorny challenge to the Danish model, intended to serve a small, homogeneous population. Leaders are focusing their ire on urban neighborhoods where immigrants, some of them placed there by the government, live in dense concentrations with high rates of unemployment and gang violence.

Politicians’ description of the ghettos has become increasingly sinister. In his annual New Year’s speech, Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen warned that ghettos could “reach out their tentacles onto the streets” by spreading violence, and that because of ghettos, “cracks have appeared on the map of Denmark.” Politicians who once used the word “integration” now call frankly for “assimilation.”

That tough approach is embodied in the “ghetto package.” Of 22 proposals presented by the government in early March, most have been agreed upon by a parliamentary majority, and more will be subject to a vote in the fall.

I think that article is a bit unfairly written to the practices that go on there.

And as a side note, are government assimilation programs really a bad thing? Sounds to me like it’s better than segregation of migrant communities.

Their attempted takedowns of her so far are that her family had a modest (some might say small) house in the suburbs and one coworker one time thought she didn't share enough of her tips. I suppose it does signal that they see her as a bit of a threat, though.

I hope she wins, and wins big.

You can see the difference between the parties with this candidate.

The GOP has a pedophile win the nomination and the entire party backs him.

A young female progressive beats the establishment candidate, and people are trying to find the faults which is doing the work for the GOP.

We are on the same freaking side. I don't want the Dems to blindly support just anyone, but this gal is not the enemy.
