That worked with SCOTUS.
To the point where it becomes personally inconvenient for them. Tuberville caved on a key part of the proceeding as soon as Schumer threatened to make the whole class spend the weekend in detention.
Speaking earlier on the Senate floor, Schumer said he would request unanimous consent to hold initial votes on the three key Pentagon nominations later Wednesday. Schumer threatened to keep lawmakers in the Senate over the weekend while he proceeded to force votes under the chamber’s cloture rules, in the event that Tuberville or another senator objected.
Tuberville did not object to the votes.
That’s why, if they are going to have a filibuster at all, it better be a real filibuster. Yes, you’re going to have to stand at that podium for 24 fucking hours, you piece of shit.
And while we’re at it, the House should have to stay in session continuously without break as ling as there isn’t a budget. If Sept 30 comes and they haven’t passed one, get out your sleeping blankets, Freedom Caucus!
I honestly think that that is a more difficult project than they think… But yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s their goal…
Only, mostly? Like there have been several cases that Trump likely expected a favorable ruling on (with regards to the 2020 election) and only Thomas (who was not appointed by Trump, but by Bush) voted in his favor… they are getting endless, shitty, right wing rulings, since all 3 of his appointees came from the Federalist society, but they’ve shown that they’ll not rubber stamp Trump’s coup…
I assume the same way they continue to get any support from women, non-white people, poor people, people susceptible to carcinogens, people who realize they depend on the earth’s environment to survive, or anyone who isn’t a sociopathic and short-sighted billionaire. Like, I make fun of Elon Musk but I do get what he sees in them. Everyone else is a puzzle.
The rush of online hate increased exponentially early Sunday when Elon Musk, owner of the former Twitter site now known as X, sent a message to his 157 million followers: “An innocent man was murdered in cold blood while riding his bicycle. The killers joke about it on social media. Yet, where is the media outrage? Now you begin to understand the lie.”
Why am I not surprised?
Lachlan Murdoch is even more extreme than his dad, so hopefully that’ll lead to major mistakes.
Lachlan vs. James predictions based on the premise of Murdoch Sr dying:
It’s a particularly sensitive topic at the Review-Journal, where a year ago its investigative reporter, Jeff German, was stabbed to death. One of the people German wrote about, Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, had attacked the reporter on social media and was later charged in the case and is awaiting trial
Fiscal Conservatives! There just isn’t enough popcorn.
let me guess: they’re telling everyone that they can pull themselves up by their bootstraps. that capitalism is the best economic system possible, that america is so perfect that it’s beyond criticism, and that western civilization is responsible for all important developments.
oh… you mean some other kind of indoctrination. oops.
Murdoch steps down.
Rupert to Lachlan: You start hiding the money.
Perfect time for that, with the three lawsuits over his head now and more anticipated due to their 2020 election coverage.
Too many college graduates are leaving Mississippi, and aligning degree programs with labor market demand might stem the tide, White said.
I think he may have the wrong “cause” associated with the “effect.”
Hopefully it’s for health reasons and he pegs it soon.
