Politics / Re: The federal judge who ruled on stop and frisk

Strike, you may consider him an arrogant, know it all Whiteboy but he is articulate and intelligent. He’s a Rhodes Scholar, speaks several languages, and he is a military veteran. There is a reason he was able to raise 75 million dollars. Cory Booker isn’t the race anymore. Maybe Black people should have given him more money.  :shrug:

Anyway, this argument is largely academic because Mr. Buttigieg is not likely to get the nomination. A large segment of the Democratic Party is simply not comfortable with a Homosexual Presidential nominee.

I don't think Buttigeig is going to get the nomination. I think he'll get behind whomever the democratic nominee happens to be, and I think the LGBT people will get out and vote.

Judges postpone emergency meeting to discuss Trump/Barr concerns

Washington (CNN)A group of federal judges hastily postponed an emergency meeting that was scheduled to take place Wednesday to discuss concerns about President Donald Trump and the Justice Department's intervention in politically charged cases.

Megan Cruz, the executive director of the Federal Judges Association, said the meeting was set to occur Wednesday afternoon and the group was considering whether to issue a statement afterwards. But later in the day, Cruz said that the conference call between the 14 judges who serve as officers on the Executive Committee had been postponed.
Cruz offered no further details and did not respond to questions asking whether the group had been asked to reschedule the meeting.

I’m STILL waiting for someone to explain the rationale for Pete Buttigieg’s presidential candidacy. Dude is a former OBSCURE mayor of an OBSCURE state. He has “lukewarm” reviews, at best, from negro citizens of South Bend. Yet he REMAINS in this contest, and Cory, Kamala, Julian et al, have all withdrawn.

Although he lacks experience and a significant part of the country is not ready for a homosexual president, Buttigieg is probably the most articulate of the remaining democratic candidates. He's raised a good amount of money, and you can bet he has the support of the LBGT community. Maybe, Cory or Kamala should have ran instead of Cory and Kamala.

Wow!........... :clap:

Thanks, bluedog, for posting this clip of the federal judge on Ari Melber’s program on MSNBC. Apparently, BOTH Bloomberg and Joe told flat out lies about the NYC “stop and frisk” program, and the now retired judge set the record straight.

Listening to this gal being interviewed was like a breath of fresh  air. She was clear, concise and responsive to Ari’s questions. I hope the network contracts with this woman for recurring visits.

Guys, after that Las Vegas debate, and ALL of the reporting which preceded it, it’s clear in MY mind that Lil Mike Bloomberg is WOEFULLY unfit to be the Dem nominee for president. And Uncle Joe? Lord, have mercy......dude is looking and sounding more each day like a blithering and blathering old moo man.   :no:

Okay. That leaves Sanders, Buttigieg, Warren, and Klobuchar, each of them carrying their own distinct baggage.   :(

Russia will try to meddle in 2020 U.S. election, intelligence report says

Russia wants to help pro-Russia candidates, the report says, but it also meddles because it wants to show that Western nations can't hold fair elections.

NBC News obtained an exclusive preview of the annual report from the Baltic nation's intelligence agency, which warns that Russia will continue to pursue cyber operations that threaten other nations.

Again, Trump makes ethnically charged comments:

“How bad were the Academy Awards?!” he asked Thursday, to applause from supporters at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colo. 

Trump suggested an American movie should have won.

"And the winner is... a movie from South Korea! What the (expletive) was that all that about? We got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. On top of that, they give them the best movie of the year. Was it good? I don't know. Let's get 'Gone with the Wind' back, please? 'Sunset Boulevard.' So many great movies."

As Russia targets US elections (again), Trump does everything wrong

Donald Trump announced on Wednesday night that Ambassador Richard Grenell would, at least temporarily, oversee the U.S. intelligence community. It was among the most ridiculous of the president's personnel decisions: Grenell, best known for his work as an internet troll, has never served a day in the intelligence community in any capacity. The idea of him serving as the acting director of national intelligence is bizarre.

Yesterday, however, brought the controversy into sharper focus. While it matters that Trump elevated an unqualified loyalist to an important post, what matters far more are the events that precipitated the decision. The New York Times reported overnight:

Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected, five people familiar with the matter said, a disclosure to Congress that angered Mr. Trump, who complained that Democrats would use it against him.

The timeline of events is astonishing. On Feb. 12 -- Wednesday of last week -- U.S. intelligence professionals alerted lawmakers to the fact that Russia is targeting the 2020 elections, once again hoping to keep Trump in power. A day later, the president lashed out at Joseph Maguire, who was serving as the acting director of national intelligence, complaining about Congress being briefed on information that's politically inconvenient to his re-election campaign.

Told that a foreign adversary was once again targeting U.S. elections, Trump was furious -- not with Russia, but with the truth getting out. His instinct to put his interests above ours is unshakable.

Or put another way, the American president wasn't not bothered with Russian efforts to keep him in power; Trump's bothered that officials might learn the facts about Russian efforts to keep him in power.

Just one week later, Maguire was out at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, replaced with a partisan Republican with literally none of the necessarily qualifications.

The movie studio behind the South Korean film “Parasite” hit back on Thursday after President Trump criticized the foreign-language film for winning best picture at the 2020 Academy Awards.

"Understandable, he can't read," Neon tweeted from its official account with a link to Trump's comments.

“Parasite” made history earlier this month when it became the first non-English film to win the top prize at the Oscars in the award show’s 92-year history.

Trump, however, knocked the dark comedy during a campaign rally in Colorado.

“By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year?” Trump asked as his crowd of supporters booed before suggesting an American movie should have won.

“The winner is a movie from South Korea. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade,” the president continued. “And after all that, they give them best movie of the year?”

"Can we get, like, Gone With the Wind back, please?" Trump continued. "Sunset Boulevard. So many great movies."

Politics / Mississippi's six-week abortion ban struck down
« on: February 20, 2020, 07:17:56 PM »
Mississippi's controversial "fetal heartbeat" ban, an effective six-week ban on abortion, was just struck down by a federal judge, according to a spokesperson for the Center for Reproductive Rights, the law firm that challenged the state law.

A three-judge panel of the Fifth District issued its decision Thursday afternoon, writing, "[A]ll agree that cardiac activity can be detected well before the fetus is viable. That dooms the law. If a ban on abortion after 15 weeks is unconstitutional, then it follows that a ban on abortion at an earlier stage of pregnancy is also unconstitutional."

19 pages!!! Dayum!!! Carry on.

WASHINGTON — A former juror in the trial of Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump, defended the forewoman whom the president accused of "significant bias" that influenced the guilty verdict.

Juror Seth Cousins told CNN on Wednesday night, "The irony here is that Tomeka Hart, who we elected as our foreperson on a secret ballot," was "perhaps the strongest advocate in the room for a rigorous process, for the rights of the defendant and for making sure that we took it seriously and looked at each charge."


Cousins insisted that Hart's opinions did not affect how she handled her responsibilities.

"Without her in the room, we would have returned the same verdict, and we would have returned it more quickly and without looking as deeply into the evidence," he said. "I'm firmly convinced of that."

The Republicans didn't play the same fake sham political games that the Dem-O-Rats played. K---- get ready for four more years of Trump - YOU GD IDIOT... You're either going to support a socialist/communist for POTUS or the elitist. Neither give a damn about your black a** .

Why all the name calling and profanity? Why are you so angry Black man.  :shrug: Why do you use such childish and immature language like Dem-O-Rats. Are you emulating Limbaugh and Trump?  :shrug:

I'm sure that Bloomberg and Sanders care about me just as much as Trump does.  :lol:

Dude, once more, if Trump wins, I will continue living my life as I am now.

However, I would prefer Sanders or Bloomberg over Trump.

Are you still a birther?  :snicker
