Democrats Contemplate Stacking the Supreme Court if They Win in 2020

Democrat Sens. Kamala Harris (CA), Elizabeth Warren (MA), and Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) told Politico they would not “rule out” expanding the Supreme Court after the 2020 elections. Potential approaches include raising the number of appointed justices to temper Republican influence on appointments, and setting term limits. “We are on the verge of a crisis of confidence in the Supreme Court,” Harris asserted. “We have to take this challenge head on, and everything is on the table to do that.” Democrats are responding poorly to the potential of a growing conservative majority in…

Pinkerton: Howard Schultz Re-Ups ‘Never Trump’

Here’s a prediction: Howard Schultz is due for some Strange New Respect. That’s the jokey term applied to someone who bends the Main Stream Media’s way—and that’s exactly what Schultz is now doing.  The Starbucks mogul has, of course, been flirting with national politics for years, publishing various self-back-patting books about himself, touting woke causes, endorsing Hillary Clinton, and taking occasional swings at Donald Trump (who, of course, has been happy to hit back).  As far as the Main Stream Media was concerned, Schultz’s presence on the national stage was…

2020: Democratic Candidates Undermine State Dept’s Definition of Antisemitism with Ilhan Omar Defense

TEL AVIV — In defending Rep. Ilhan Omar’s antisemitic tropes suggesting pro-Israel interests pushed allegiance to a “foreign country” or that pro-Israel politicians are motivated by financial support, some progressive Democrats seem to be arguing against the State Department’s very definition of antisemitism. Prominent among Omar defenders are Senators Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, each of whom are 2020 presidential contenders. In attempting to explain away allegations of anti-Semitism, Omar trotted out the age-old antisemitic canard insinuating Jews are more loyal to Israel or to some larger Jewish…

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) on Wednesday defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over her latest antisemitic outburst, arguing that her experience of fleeing violence in Somalia is “more personal” than Jews whose parents survived the Holocaust. Omar is facing blowback after suggesting last week that pro-Israel groups pressure members of Congress to pledge “allegiance” to a foreign country. In an interview with the Hill, Clyburn criticized reports omitting mention of Omar escaping Somalia and spending four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before immigrating to the U.S. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my…

Liz Warren Defends Omar: Calling Criticism of Israel Anti-Semitic Has ‘Chilling Effect’

Senator and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) defended Rep. Ilhad Omar (D-MN) Wednesday after the freshman congresswoman’s latest antisemitic outburst. Warren said in a statement Wednesday We have a moral duty to combat hateful ideologies in our own country and around the world — and that includes both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. In a democracy, we can and should have an open, respectful debate about the Middle East that focus on policy. Branding criticism of Israel as automatically anti-Semitic has a chilling effect on our public discourse and makes it harder…
