That’s actually a shortened clip about immigration / detention / deportation.
The fact that Biden doesn’t spend every moment of his presidency calling out Manchin and sinema means he is a loser coward
Feels like it's beyond that. He's calling the shots to miss the moment now.
What a worthless old fool. I’m sure McConnell will keep up his end of the deal and not have had his fingers crossed behind his back. Takes the literal hottest topic among his own voters and just goes along with the people they oppose. We deserve Trump 2.0 for thinking Biden was going to actually do anything other than wear a mask in public.
I mean he’s an 80+ yr old catholic. I bet he’s actually excited about the Roe reversal.
Was with you till you said “we deserve Trump 2.0”
I mean, I don’t know about y’all, but I haven’t raped, murdered or tortured anyone, so I definitely dont deserve that shit
A cuck. Bitch. Weak. Could type out demeaning synonyms til my fingers bleed and they’d all be accurate.
To cure my sanity, I try to get excited about the little things happening outside of the cowards in DC. Like a leftist progressive winning a state race in denver against an entrenched moderate
Fuck them. Supreme Court>>>>> lives of women
'Lunacy': Democrats Risk Running Out of Time to Confirm Federal Judges
"Democrats aren't filling open seats right now in federal district courts because, for unfathomable reasons, they are letting red state senators block nominees," said one critic.
June 29, 2022
Warning that U.S. President Joe Biden may lose his chance to confirm more circuit and district court nominees after the midterm elections if Republicans win a Senate majority, legal scholars are calling on Democratic lawmakers to immediately ramp up confirmations of federal judges.
"It's lunacy not to fill [judicial seats] immediately and by any means necessary."
Democrats have confirmed 16 nominees to the country's 13 circuit courts, which have the last word on federal appeals before they proceed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The party needs to double its confirmations by November, Bloomberg Law reported Wednesday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee held confirmation hearings last week for nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and for the 6th Circuit, but 11 current or expected vacancies do not have a nominee lined up to fill them.
To speed up the process, Rakim Brooks, president of progressive advocacy group Alliance for Justice, suggested to Bloomberg that the committee confirm judicial nominees by order of priority rather than holding hearings with two circuit and three district court nominees at each confirmation hearing, which the panel plans to hold every two weeks while the Senate is in session.
"At a bare minimum, they've got to fill all of the circuit court seats, and that's not sort of how they're tracking," Brooks told Bloomberg.
An aide for the committee told the outlet, however, that Democratic leaders see no "reason for us to change the way we're operating."
Considering the time the party has before the midterm elections and potential Republican takeover, lawmakers are unlikely to fill all the empty circuit court seats, leaving some of the most powerful courts in the country vulnerable to vacancies that could persist for the rest of Biden's time in office and eventually be filled by Republican nominees.
As Bloomberg reported:
The Senate began a two-week recess June 27, and will return for about a month before leaving again through Labor Day. The Senate will be in session for most of September and for two weeks in October in the run-up to Election Day when 35 seats are on the ballot.
That means opportunities for eight to 10 more circuit nominees to testify before the committee, advance to the floor, and receive the customary two votes necessary for confirmation. Some need three depending on whether the committee deadlocks on their nomination.
If the nominees already sent to the Senate are confirmed and the White House picks candidates to fill the remaining hearing slots, it would still leave five to seven circuit seats on the table when the year runs out.
Critics on Wednesday noted that Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are continuing to allow Republicans to submit or withhold "blue slips" for district court nominees—opinions about nominations from senators who represent the nominees' home state which can be used to block a confirmation.
When Republicans controlled the Judiciary Committee under the Trump administration, they did away with blue slips for circuit nominees, allowing the party to confirm federal judges at breakneck speed—confirming 54 judges to the circuit court.
Alex Aronson, managing director of the Georgetown Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection, tweeted Wednesday that it is "way past time" to abandon the "arcane Senate tradition."
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) earlier this year withheld a blue slip for Judge William Pocan, who Biden nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
As progressives call on the White House to back far-reaching reforms to the Supreme Court in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Slate journalist Mark Joseph Stern said Wednesday that the right-wing takeover of the high court is not the only thing standing in the way of Democrats taking control of the judicial system.
"Democrats aren't filling open seats right now in federal district courts because, for unfathomable reasons, they are letting red state senators block nominees," Stern said. "It's completely outrageous."
"It's lunacy not to fill [judicial seats] immediately and by any means necessary," he added.
WH and Congressional Ds each telling the other to "do something!"
Love that Joe is forwarding freaks for federal judgeships to appease lunatics instead of threatening red states and scotus judges/their interests
I mean, maybe Biden and all the high powered Dems made a deal with the Republicans to just go along with everything they want in exchange for not getting hanged or gulag once they take power.
put me down for 1 lets go brandon shirt
We’re going to have another civil conflict or breakdown and reorganization of government, I just have no fucking clue what it looks like
Nothing matters until she becomes president
I feel like I live in a Arby’s
Imagine being the female VP of this moment and not having a plan to propose in response that predictable ass question
I’ll admit that #2 (if talking about national parks)is a terrible idea by Warren so I give Joe a pass there but the rest are valid criticisms . You don’t want abortion trailer clinics on the grounds where families vacation all summer
Undermining the legimacy of the Court should be the goal, not something to avoid
can't be ruining "vacations"
A lot of it falls under “possession is 9/10’s of the law” corollary with whomever controls the military and its arsenal 99% likely to win.
Fucking paint this quote on the Dem HQ.
mobile clinics near bordering states state lines is a good idea , not National Parks
This is my theory
so who was it that was talking about how nice the fabric was on a Let's Go Brandon shirt? Do they run a bit tight? Asking for me.
Might have to ask my brother in law where he got his let’s go brandon flag
Fuck Biden for this shit.
do you think they’d put them in tourist locations?
“free abortions at the Yellowstone volcano!”
Planning your summer vacay around your gf’s abortion
you really think they're gonna bulldoze half dome or some shit?
This but unironically
Just dumpsters full of human tissue hidden right behind the National Park sign
“Mama, what are those bears eating?”
one bin for trash, one bin for recyclables, one bin for human tissue
Didn’t I read a NYT headline today that suggested Biden and his people feel “disrespected” that the party doesn’t view him as viable in 2024?
Make no mistake, this country elected a(nother) narcissist in 2020
The boomer generation was actually a “boom” of narcissism; I rec Christopher Lasch on this
got gifted the world and they flushed it down the fucking toilet
People in this thread thinking we had a majority with Manchin sitting there as the 50th vote. Come on, man, as Joe would say.
Strauss and Howe were unsurprised.
Mother fuck I hate all these fucking Dems. God damn losers
Bidengeddon: Boring and fucking useless
Think it’s our turn to get a young, attractive, well spoken capable female as president. It’s all the rage in Scandinavia and New Zealand. I say fuck it and go big and get AOC out there. I know it has zero chance of happening with the DNC but enough people are getting fucking pissed that something radical just might work. I know we dont deserve something that cool happening…
