Good to see how Kav is warmly welcomed by his new colleagues
Roberts did not initiate this request, but rather reassigned the investigation to another circuit (impartial venue) given a lower court found some merit in SOME of the complaints. He performed a manager function and did his job.

Not exactly Machiavellian.

Kanye West says Trump hat makes him 'feel like Superman'

Somehow reminds me of an old joke (risking a ban!!)
A gay married couple returned home after a night out and realised they had forgotten their house keys.

One volunteered to climb the drain pipe and so to gain access.
Half way up the drainpipe he said "I feel like a fireman"
His partner replied "what, at this time of night!"

I will go and get my coat now.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

ahahah reminds me of the evening of my 50th BD in NY- where my cousin had taken us to a gay bar in Downtown Manhattan and I called my daughter from across the bar and said 'come over quick, I am dying for a fag ...' ah well.

The Stock Market just reached an All-Time High during my Administration for the 102nd Time, a presidential record, by far, for less than two years. So much potential as Trade and Military Deals are completed.

Just a week ago the Dow looked like it would crash up through 27,000 to new record.
Now today it crashed down through 25,000.

When it rises Trump claims the credit, when it crashes then Trump runs around looking for someone else to blame

That was not his mandate (to decide whether to proceed) nor his choice, really.

Kind of says so in the article...

But if complaints against a sitting Justice are not dealt with in an impartial apolitical manner, then there will be an asterisk against Judge Tymkovich and Justice Kavanaugh for the remainder of their terms, and indeed the U.S. Supreme Court itself.

Even if he had the choice, do you really think Roberts was going to say NO? Don't be an infant.

According to this infant the US Supreme Court decline to hear about 90% of the cases referred to them; around 80 out of 7,000 are actually heard.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Former White House deputy national security adviser Dina Powell has taken herself out of consideration to replace U.N Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Trump had openly discussed Powell as a possible successor to Nikki Haley, the current U.S. ambassador to the U.N. who announced on Tuesday she would resign at year's end.

Source

Trump claimed he had a long short list to replace Nikki Haley but Dina Powell was the only name specifically mentioned.

So whether he really has a short list of names is open to question.

Nikki Haley is the only person to so far to leave the Trump administration without black marks and a black cloud!
So how popular joining the Trump administration is for new people with the consequent risk of destroying their reputations is a good question

Someone bought BrettKavanaugh.com and made it a forum to help sexual assault survivors

Hope they are able to help some people.

Over on the other thread, everyone's going nuts for this sort of thing as "free speech" apparently. Fickle lot.
