It's on!




The next few months in American politics will be turbulent and tempestuous to say the least. And rival political camps are now bracing for an all out war. 

The stakes have been raised even higher because of the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Otherwise lovingly referred to as the Notorious RBG. All those woke left wing liberals and blackademics (I see you Eddie Glaude) who though that it was cool to have a purity test for democratic presidential candidates, and who looked past Hillary Clinton in 2016 to vote for Jill Stein, will now see that elections have consequences. Republicans will now seize this moment, and they will stack the court with another young conservative giving them a three justice advantage in shaping American law for years to come.

For those of you who don't understand power in America, it's all about the Supreme Court. Those nine people, with their lifetime appointments, are the most powerful people in America. Presidents can't serve more than eight years (although trump is trying to change that), and politicians in Washington have to come running back to you for your votes every two and six years respectively. The Supremes stay on  until they die, or until they decide to retire. Sadly, for RBG, it was the former of the two. 

The poor woman's body was not even cold before Mitch McConnell, the second sleaziest man in America, decided that it was time to declare that he was giving whoever trump nominates to replace her a vote in the Senate. This just days before a presidential election. Remember Merrick Garland? 

Democrats can save all their hand-wringing and whining, this is how politics work in America. They chose to be the nice guys with their feckless and incompetent leader, Chuck Schumer, who has now declared that nothing is off the table. News flash: Other than four republican senators flipping and saying that they won't vote to nominate whoever the orange one selects, everything IS off the table. There is nothing he or anyone of those do- nothing democrats can do. 

The republican party represents all those white people in America who see their country changing,  and are terrified of what is to come. They see the writing on the demographic wall, and they know that if there were to be free and fair elections they would lose all of their power. Stacking the courts to ensure voter suppression, gerrymandering, and immigration restrictions is the only way that they will maintain power and the status quo. They can also count on a lazy and disengaged electorate, too busy watching Dancing With The Stars and trying to keep up with the Kardashians and Cardi B's WAP to care. 

You will now hear from the chattering class about what hypocrites the folks in the GOP are, how history will judge them poorly, and blah blah blah. The GOP doesn't care, because for now, they have the power, and that's all that matters. This is why they put up with trump and all the baggage that he brings, for moments like this. They can count on him to stack the court, and they can now control and put their judicial influence on the law for generations to come. 

A woman's right to do what she wants with her body? Gone. Voting rights protections for all Americans? Gone. Accessible and affordable healthcare? Gone. Protections from environmental hazards? Gone. Proper checks on gun regulations and safety? Gone. Protections for immigrants? Gone. 

Let the games begin.

*Affirmative Action, which bestows race and gender-based privileges in employment and college admissions.

*Race-based scholarships.

*Race-based set asides for government contracts.

*Hate crime laws, which confer racial, religious, and sexual orientation protected class status.

*'Diversity' initiatives, which enforce race and gender-based discrimination.

*Democrat city governments who refuse to enforce the law on rioters who claim to be fighting for racial justice but throw the book at people who try to defend themselves and their property.

This does not exist. It is a Trumpian fantasy.

Metropolitan police departments do enforce the law on rioters. It just turns out that containing riots is difficult for police, because they are often outnumbered.

Of course, Trump and his biggest fans have a preferred solution. They would not "enforce the law" on rioters at all -- they would simply murder them.

Field, I linked to this post from my FB page for the first time ever (only the page, there's no URL for the post itself), since your last paragraph really brings it home. Why Chauncey de Vega took me to task for trying to see light in the darkness; he doesn't see any. Schumer is my senator (god help us all), and he has vowed to get tougher, but there may be nothing we can do but stall. Romney may be the only flipped Republican after the pressure is put on Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, and AZ Mark Kelly MAY win in time to vote, but a down vote is still extremely unlikely. McConnell is wetting his pants in anticipation. Let the good times roll.

dinthebeast said...

Roy Blunt has made a statement that the senate should not vote on a nominee until after the new president, whoever it should turn out to be, is sworn in.

Problem is, Roy Blunt is a goddamn Republican, and the word of a goddamn Republican is worth its weight in rat turds.

Are there four senate Republicans who will step up and keep the president who lost the popular vote from installing one third of the supreme court with the eager assistance of a Republican majority in the senate that actually represents far less than half of the US citizenry?

Doubtful. Murkowski has also made noises about waiting, and we can be assured that Romney and Collins will be absolutely insufferable over it, but anything other than reliable.

Another scenario is that the vote really isn't that likely to be concluded before November third, and if Kelly beats McSally in Arizona, it's possible that since she's an appointed senator filling in for the death of John McCain, Kelly could be sworn in November fourth, thus reducing the number of required apostate Republicans to block this awful thing.

Really, though, it'll probably happen. And after it does, we Democrats have to make them pay for doing it, if we want it to stop happening.

Just like the election of Fergus, the theft of the supreme court seat in 2016, all of the degradation of the government and society that the Fergus administration has perpetrated, and the destruction of civil discourse in government going back to Gingrich in the nineties, it will all keep happening until we make there be a price for them to pay for it, personally, professionally and politically.

Basically, as Bill Clinton once said, they'll keep doing it as long as it keeps working.

We knew the judiciary was going to be buggered for decades because that's all McConnell has been doing for the entire Fergus administration. They are too lame as legislators to pass any meaningful legislation, so that's where they have concentrated their efforts. I don't know exactly how we'll overcome that when we take control of the government again, but we'll figure something out.

Kinda like the way Ruth Bader Ginsberg figured out how to get equal rights for women by bringing discrimination cases involving men and winning them, we'll use our creativity and intelligence and desire to do what is right for the country and we will eventually prevail, like we pretty much always have.

It's good to see the Democrats all on pretty much the same page for once, and just in time, too.

The goddamn Fergus campaign ghoulishly went after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg as a way to make the election about anything else in the world other than the pandemic response.

Then, almost as one, the Democrats began reminding people that a third Fergus appointed supreme court justice would seriously endanger the ACA and in doing so made the supreme court nomination fight about the pandemic response also.

Healthcare. The goddamn Republicans want to take it away, still, in the middle of a fucking pandemic, and this nomination is the closest they have come yet in succeeding at taking it away.

Gotta give them credit for being consistent. Consistently the worst motherfuckers ever to fuck a mother.

I'm not sure what math you are using, but the formula to find the mortality rate of a disease is to divide the number dead by the numbers of cases. The result will be a decimal number. Move the decimal point two spaces to the right and BINGO: You have the mortality rate percentage. This isn't rocket science.

Too bad said...

"I dunno. Why don’t you ask Mitch McConnell? He can check his notes from 2016."

In 2016, McConnell cited what he called the “Biden Rule,” based on a standard he laid out in the early 1990s when Biden was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

On June 25, 1992 Biden gave a speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate.

"it is my view that if a Supreme Court Justice resigns tomorrow, or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not — and not — name a nominee until after the November election is completed."

At the time when Biden told President Bush to wait, the Democrats controlled the Senate and President Bush was a Republican. The Senate hasn't confirmed a nominee from an opposite-party president during an election year since the 1880s, and why would they?

Of course, such a rule didn't stop President Obama from nominating Merrick Garland during an election year.

Here was Biden in 2016: “Article 2 of the Constitution clearly states whenever there is a vacancy in one of the courts created by the Constitution itself ... the president shall — not may, the president shall appoint someone to fill the vacancy with the advice and consent of the Senate."

and

“I made it absolutely clear that I would go forward with the confirmation process as chairman even a few months before a presidential election”


This is apparently no longer a principle that Biden stands behind, as this weekend, even before the funeral for Justice Ginsburg, Biden demanded President Trump not nominate and the U.S. Senate not consider a nominee for the late Justice’s vacant seat.

Biden in 2020: “This appointment isn’t about the past. It’s about the future”

Things are different when the same party controls both the White House and the Senate, as Republicans do now. It's a difference that Democrats and the media are having a hard time wrapping their little heads around.

Anonymous said...

None of any of that is anywhere in the Constitution. It’s all hot air. McConnell only has one principle left: “might makes right.” Or, to put it it in more Trumpian terms, “do whatever you can get away with.”

Biden rule is a joke. There was no pending nominee and no vacancy to fill. It was hypothetical.

"Healthcare. The goddamn Republicans want to take it away"

"Yes! And they want to take Social Security away and give the money to Jeff Bezos, and force woman to have babies and then put them in cages, and repeal the 13th amendment put black people back in chains!"

There is in fact, not a conspiracy theory or a media lie, a case pending before the fucking supreme court in which a turbocharged moron of a judge from fucking Texas struck down the entirety of the ACA on the basis that the goddamn Republicans killed the fine on the individual mandate, so he contends the whole law is therefore invalid.

If the case is decided in the turbomoron's favor, millions of US citizens, a majority of them poor white folk, will lose their health insurance in the middle of a fucking pandemic.

There is no uncertainty or question about the truth of this. It's what the goddamn Republicans have literally dedicated themselves to accomplishing since 2010 when the law was passed.

There were about fifty repeal bills passed in the Boehner congress and the only thing that stopped them from repealing it in the Ryan congress was John McCain and sheer legislative incompetence.

I know that remembering things is forbidden to Republicans, but there actually was a health system in the United States before the ACA passed, and it did actually suck donkey balls.

There were a boatload of reasons that every presidential administration for nearly a century had tried to pass healthcare reform and those reasons are all set to come roaring back like a big Fergus boat on Lake Travis, swamping everything in its path.

Ans as for social security, Fergus has already signed a goddamn EO deferring the payroll tax, that is, the funding source for social security and medicare, until spring, and has yawped repeatedly that should he be reelected, he would eliminate the tax entirely.
No funding, no social security. And here I go remembering stuff again, but the goddamn Republicans have been hoping to kill social security since its inception. See also: Bush, George W.

Fergus hates Jeff Bezos.

As for the babies, do you really believe Roe will survive a goddamn forced birth zealot on the court like Amy Coney Barrett? There will, in fact, just as in the dark ages before Roe, be thousands of mostly poor white women who will be unable to afford to travel to places where abortion is still safe and legal, and end up bearing unwanted children, who will of course grow up well adjusted and crime free.

Ans as for the cages, only immigrant babies are currently in them, but give Fergus another term and all bets are off about who, exactly, is exempt from them.

I guess what I'm saying is that attempts to make fun of this administrations fuck ups by exaggerating them are futile, as they've already gone off into cartoon villain territory from the jump.

Fergus is yawping about stopping the ballot counting on election night, before all of the mail in ballots can be counted, because he is afraid he will lose if they are all counted.

By that way of thinking, it should have been Michele Bachmann, the winner of the Iowa caucuses in 2012 to run against Obama in the general. Why count the rest of the votes for Romney? She was obviously winning.

So after the goddamn Republicans prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they will not follow their own fucking rules about the confirmation of supreme court justices (or any other damn thing that gets in the way of raw power) and we retake the senate and the presidency and kill the goddamn filibuster, who should we appoint to fill the four seats in a supreme court expanded to thirteen seats?

And fuck you, the number of justices on the court has been changed at least seven times, and several of those were blatantly political, so keeping the nine justice court we have had for a long ass time now is another one of those norms that hold the government together when everyone agrees to adhere to them.

You know, the kind of norms Fergus and his goddamn Republican felons have been ripping the shit out of in their bid to deconstruct the administrative state.

So since the adherence to them is no longer reliable, we sure as fuck are not going to unilaterally disarm about it.

I'm thinking that the squad would fill those expanded seats nicely.

Who will tell them to limit our out-of-pocket expenses in the event of catastrophic medical bills? Who will get them to accept patients with cancer? Just how is that going to work, anyhow?

Not true. I’m sure there were many things that could have been done to save those 4 lives, up to and including closing the consulate. It’s just that those decisions were way below the pay grade of the secretary of state, who doesn’t make security arrangements for every embassy and consulate. Bluntly, it wasn’t her job.

Congressional Republicans knew this, but chose to pretend they didn’t, and to use the Benghazi attack as a jumping-off point for all sorts of bizarre conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton.

No. This is nonsense. This presupposes that the Constitution contains all the answers and you just need to look them up to resolve legal conflicts.

This isn’t remotely true. The Constitution is a minimalist, skeletal document that leaves tons of important questions unresolved. So it could never just be “calling balls and strikes.” Justices have to fill in the legal blanks, and the rationale for their decisions will often have to come from somewhere other than the Constitution. It will have to be supplied by their ideology.

Whether people acknowledge it or not, the SCOTUS makes (precedent) law, and does so with political motivations. Sitting on the top court is a political job, for both liberal and conservative justices.

The only difference is that wingnuts lie and pretend that they’re not political, but the liberals are, so the liberals must be doing it wrong. It’s all bullshit.

I agree with Rachel. She is talking about the way a court of law should function. Republican judges have long abused the privilege of judgeship to attempt to legislate from the bench. Let's look at it objectively. Roe v. Wade should never be overturned. But as Pilot points out, every nominee is a Roman Catholic. Why would the issue even come up before the court a second time? What party could possibly be wronged by the freedom of a woman to do with her own body as she chooses? There would be no plaintiff of any legal standing.

How about the immediate issue of the SCOTUS deciding a presidential election. Wait just a fucking minute! Where the hell did that come from? Elections are certified by the states. Case closed. Yet Ted Cruz and the white men with forked tongues are already anticipating a disputed election go up before a new SCOTUS. They are planning on it the little Nazi degenerates. No. Supreme Court decides case law. They can't co-opt power that does not belong to them. Or can they in the new world of Professor Trump and Doctor Barr?

Fuck y'all lyin' republicans. The American people are going to throw you out on your big fat pasty asses in November. Mitch McConnell? He's going the way of Joe Arpaio. We won't take it any more. Dark shame on all y'all enablers of the republican ruling class.

I'm not in favor of making abortion illegal, but, Roe v. Wade should never have been decided in favor of abortion rights. It's a made up fiction that is not constitutional.

There should either be a Constitutional amendment to dictate the legality of abortion nationwide or it should be left to the individual states to decide.

mike from iowa said...

Sorry Anon, but here is what you lose when wingnuts allow states to decide federally constituted rights.....

While relatively attractive, the concept that

the Supreme Court probably won’t outlaw abortion; they’ll just allow states to do so

seems a bit optimistic. The issue in Roe was not the relative power of a State, but the meaning of the U.S. Constitution. In effect, the Roe Court ruled that the U.S. Constitution protects an individual right of privacy in family planning to safely terminate a pregnancy (i.e. with competent safe medical help available) from legislation that undermines that right. In order to overrule Roe the new conservative Court will have to reject or restrict the idea that the U.S. Constitution protects that right of privacy. Such a ruling is the tip of a legal iceberg.

Once we no longer have a constitutional right of privacy, then neither the States nor the federal government are restricted from enacting legislation prohibiting the activities that the right of privacy have previously protected. Thus, unless this conservative Court accepts some other constitutional limitation of the power of our federal government, Congress could soon have the power to outlaw abortion nationwide, as well as a myriad of other activities currently protected by our Constitution.

Some of the other activities now protected against government intrusion by the constitutional right of privacy include:

– the right to intimate adult relationships, including marriage (same sex, interracial, etc);

– the right to private consensual sexual activities, birth control, as well as abortion;

– the right to possess and read materials in the privacy of our own home deemed obscene or against public morality. such as pornography or materials about evolution, etc;

– the right to personal autonomy in matters relating to our personal medical care, such as whether to reject medical treatment;

– etc.

. . . the U.S. Supreme Court has held that we do have a right to privacy. But, that right has been strongly challenged and eroded and may not last much longer. Indeed, the “right” has already been so greatly modified that it may soon be difficult to consider it a right at all.

https://www.hg.org/legal-articles/do-you-have-a-right-to-privacy-31474

Of course, we could elect representatives that will enact laws protecting such activities, but with the national election of Trump, the national support of Republicans that act contrary to the views of the majority of the population and disregard standards, as well as South Dakota’s own voters that defer to party over reason, optimism seems contrary to our current reality.

This gentleman is a lifelong, now retired, attorney who is way smarter than all wingnuts piled together. For his safety I am not divulging his name.

------------------
And just where in the Constitution is the government given the right to regulate abortion, or any other medical procedure? Anti abortion laws are religious laws and nothing more. I think somewhere in the First Amendment it is indicated that church and state are to be kept separate. The government needs to butt out of the abortion issue.

And please don't talk to me about the sanctity of human life. The Republican Party has become the cult of death. Trump is responsible for the death of thousands of Americans; still millions of Republicans support him.

Nothing any of us go to the doctor for is anyone's business, including abortion. No one has a right to know why a woman is going to the doctor. Also, if some states decide to make it illegal that is a constitutional violation because there is no equal protection. Maybe Field can clean up any of this.

Hey,

I never got a straight answer from any of you guys. What plaintiff would have legal standing to take a case before the SCOTUS to reverse the historic Roe vs. Wade decision? Who will the blind defenders of justice in the second term Trump DOJ, (theoretical only, of course,) bring before the court as they seek to overturn Roe vs. Wade? Will they break historic precedent by naming the unborn child as the complainant? (Remember corporations are people, my friend?) Or will the attorneys argue that somebody's religious freedom has suffered from discrimination? Protections against religious discrimination are quite robust in federal case law. Or will you champion a young man who has had his parental rights unfairly terminated.

Well, as the law is now, a man has all of the reproductive responsibilities and none of the rights.

Both the man and the woman are equally responsible for a pregnancy.

If he wants her to have the baby, she can terminate it and he has no say.

If he doesn't want the baby, she can have it and he is on the hook for 18+ years of child support.

It’ll be the government of some red(neck) state, and they’ll be the defendant, not plaintiff.

That state will pass a state law banning abortion. Some woman will take them to court, because she wants an abortion, and the judge will say, “Yep you can have an abortion, because that law is struck down for violating Roe v. Wade. It’s unconstitutional.”

Then, the state government will appeal all the way to SCOTUS, which will now be thoroughly infested with wingnuts, and will rule that the abortion ban is, in fact, legal because Roe was wrongly decided and bogus. Bye-bye Roe.

Thanks for playing bros. Anonymous at 12:10 AM that was actually a good answer. But I also appreciate the other responses. You guys are like family here at The Field Negro.

I'm going to go upthread and look for the guy who was trying to explain why it is the duty of the SCOTUS to review controversial laws for constitutionality. It was actually a quite reasoned opposing point-of-view. I'd like to use it in a post I am writing.

Rs have won the presidential popular vote once since 1992. R Senators have represented a majority of the population in one session since 1980. And they will cement a six-member court majority that could last well into 2030s? Hard to see how diverse younger generations accept that

I hate to burst your bubble, but there is no such thing as "the church of equality."

Anti-racism is a cult based on the anti-factual (religious dogmatic) notion that all races are inherently equal so the only explanation for differences in outcome is nefarious discrimination.  The doctrine of "disparate impact" is based on the same erroneous notion, and it is rigidly enforced as LAW.

The truth is that the average African (more so in Africa than America) has a distinctly lower IQ than the average White, plus much greater time preference and tendency toward psychopathy.  This is proven by every psychometric measure known to science, and proves that unequal outcomes are NOT the result of any sort of bias.  They are the result of genetics, and only generations of selective breeding can change them.  Whites have been through that system of selective breeding; Africans have not.

For example, whites tend to avoid situations where blacks congregate, out of fear of black violence.

Total failure. Wasicus approach blacks in congregations just like they do hornet's nests. Then they whip put the club, foment an attack and cry victimhood when they get stung by either scenario.

People, like hornets, sometimes retaliate before you know they are around, because they know if they don't kick whitey's skanky ass, they are sure to be attacked.

Well you fucking wingnuts have done it now, you finally have proven your investigative chops and changed the whole tenor of the election. You have proven, finally, beyond any doubts Hunter Biden and Joe Biden did NOT A FUCKING THING WRONG!!!!

GOP senators’ report calls Hunter Biden’s board position with Ukraine firm ‘problematic,’ but fails to show how it changed U.S. policy (from WAPO)

Now it is Dems turn to investigate the drumpf crime family where everyone knows there is/was/always will be crimes galore.

"Whites have been through that system of selective breeding; Africans have not."

This is an important point. People create a culture which then shapes a people. For most of human history, individuals had to defend themselves against the depredations of others. If someone killed your brother, you and your other brothers, father, uncles, sons and cousins had to seek justice and exact vengeance yourselves. Those without an adequate level of aggression and clan cohesion were supplanted by those who did. As civilization progressed and non-familial relationships became more important, such a system fostered an untenable level of chaos and abuse. It became necessary for the state to settle grievances and disputes. For almost a thousand years, there was an extremely high execution rate in European societies which weeded out the most violent and impulsive members of society and changed the resulting population.

Over the same time period, implementation of Church prohibitions on cousin marriage also had a profound effect on Europeans. Over many generations of out-marriage, clan ties weakened as people of a region became pretty much equally related to one another. This allowed for the development of higher trust societies necessary for the kind of economic system that resulted.

Today, to varying degrees, European cultural and economic systems are everywhere in the world. Asian cultures went through similar processes which have allowed them to successfully adopt Western systems albeit modified to conform to their existing cultures.

Africans of course have not been shaped by European culture for a thousand years. African cultural norms are different and required a much higher level of violence and impulsivity that makes conforming to European norms difficult. Most blacks can successfully navigate the rules of white society, but a significant portion cannot. The majority that can see the high incarceration rate of fellow blacks and the views of other populations regarding black criminality as racist and discriminatory.

This is root of the current "defund the police" movement. American blacks are rebelling against the heavy toll the legal system exacts and demanding to be exempt from the common standards of society. They blame society for enforcing the law. But it's the law that's the issue.

This is a real problem. Black behavior is oppressed by the imposition of white standards, but those standards are necessary for society to continue to function.

Having different laws for different people is hard to pull off. Common standards and equality before the law are central pillars of a successful society.

The only solutions come from an acknowledgement of the real issue. Blacks should advocate for political separation or commit to a long and difficult process of cultural assimilation.

Well, the S.C. will have a conservative majority for the rest of our lives and the senate will have a red state advantage and the right gives two shits about corruption, they just want power and to own the libs. The only way out of this mess is to start moving to red states with low populations. Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, ect. I just got back from Montana and it was really nice. I wouldn't mind plopping down there for a while and it is kinda purple with a Dem governor and senator. That's the only way out of this.
It seems counter-intuitive but all the disgruntled liberals need to move to red states and not Canada or Mexico and then we'll see change.

Nothing you have said here is true. You need to back up your claims with a wide range of scientific sources.

In addition, I.Q. tests are biased in favor of white people by their very construction. Furthermore, no proof exists the things measured by popular IQ tests actually indicate how intelligent a person really is. IQ tests do not measure a person's ability to cooperate and live in a complex modern world.

Anti-racism is not a cult based on the anti-factual (religious dogmatic) notion that all races are inherently equal. Anti-racism is the political expression of those of us believe that all people belong to one family, or race, the human race. Thus all peoples should be treated with respect and not exploited for the benefit of others who have different skin coloring or different heritage.

Those were the days.

Actually, it is. It depends on ignoring science as regards differences in populations.

We all know different races have different characteristics that translate to different outcomes in various endeavors. Look at the NBA.

But the Cult of Equality asserts that all populations are exactly the same therefore any disparities in outcomes (except of course the NBA) must be due to systematic discrimination.

This is anti-factual.

Anti-racism is the political expression of those of you who are Anti-White.

It is true that all people belong to one family, or race, the human race. Thus all peoples should be treated with respect and not exploited for the benefit of others who have different skin coloring or different heritage.

It is false that any disparities in outcomes for parts of the family (i.e. the genetically established racial groups) are due to the efforts of one race to oppress another.

Blaming these inherent differences on one racial group is actual racism.

Yeah, that anon took a weird tangent to demonstrate their racism. The topic at hand is the Supreme Court and my observation was that the majority of justices come from one particular faith. If their point was IQ and intelligence she shows a profound lack of intelligence by not being able to stay focused on a particular topic. I mean if she is that insecure about their intelligence level and has to attempt to use pseudo-science to denigrate others that seems kind of sad.

Yes, I remember when lying about a sexual affair was a major crime requiring that a president be impeached. That was then. Now we have a president who lied and is still lying about a pandemic that has taken over 200,000 lives, at least half of which can be attributed to his lies. But the death cult still loves him.

Some piece written by a racist with no scientific training. Interesting how a post about politics somehow always devolves into hatred towards Black people. I guess some folks are obsessed with their hatred towards their fellow humans. Sad.

Jews make up 2% of the population, yet were 33% of the Supreme Court. If you count Sotomayor's jewish ancestry, it was 44%. Merrick Garland would have made it 55%.

That's astounding.

At least Catholics are the second largest religious group. The largest group in America are protestants, and they had zero representation on the court until Gorsuch (who was raised Catholic) was appointed.

HBD said...

It is absolutely scientifically established that there are measurable differences between racial groups that account for almost all of the measured group differences in proclivities and achievements.

This says nothing about any one individual's abilities and desires. But since we obsess over group outcomes, then we should recognize the reasons for them.

Remember those red letter days when every candidate for drumpf's cabinet, plus the AG nominee, plus at least one Scotus scumacyst name Cavernmouth all perjured their silly ass selves in front of Senate with zero consequences?

Remember how drumpf lies every time he opens his mouth? Remember how many times the kushner kunts had to revise their taxes because they conveniently forget millions of dollars of assets journalists find to remind them?
