          Are Republicans Becoming As Worried About Losing the Senate As the House?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Right-wing anxiety is mounting.

The conventional wisdom among many political analysts has been that while Democrats have a good chance of retaking the House of Representatives in the November midterms, they are facing a much steeper climb in the U.S. Senate—where obtaining a majority would mean keeping every seat they presently hold while taking two seats from Republicans. But if comments that Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California recently made at a GOP fundraiser are any indication, some Republicans are growing increasingly worried about the Senate. And Nunes is not the only Republican who fears that the Senate could be in play for Democrats in November.

MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” has obtained a recording that was surreptitiously made at a GOP fundraiser in Spokane, Washington on July 30. In the recording, Nunes is asked about GOP efforts to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein—and he replies that while he’s no fan of Rosenstein, Republicans’ top priority at the moment should be getting Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Impeaching Rosenstein, Nunes said, can wait.

Nunes is heard saying, “I’ve said publicly Rosenstein deserves to be impeached. The question is the timing of it right before the election.” Republicans, Nunes stressed, “take the risk of not getting Kavanaugh confirmed” if they “start with impeachment on Rosenstein.”

Here’s the thing: if Nunes were truly confident that Republicans would be maintaining the Senate in the midterms, he wouldn’t have expressed such a sense of urgency about Kavanaugh. Republicans certainly had no problem waiting a year when President Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland for the High Court, which is why Justice Neil Gorsuch (a Donald Trump appointee) is now on the High Court instead. But Nunes obviously fears that if the Senate doesn’t confirm Kavanaugh soon, they might not have a chance because Democrats could be controlling the Senate in 2019.

Republicans have been openly expressing more concern about the House than the Senate. Pro-Trump GOP strategist Alex Castellanos, for example, has predicted that Democrats will gain 40 to 50 seats in the House but won’t retake the Senate. But neocon Bill Kristol, publisher of the Weekly Standard and a vocal critic of President Trump on the right, has asserted that Democrats’ chances of regaining both the House and the Senate are “pretty good now.” And in Texas, Sen. Texas Cruz is obviously feeling nervous about a recent Texas Lyceum poll showing him ahead of Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke by only 2%—which is a statistical dead heat.

It’s no coincidence that Cruz is now asking Trump to please campaign for him in Texas: even though Republicans have a major advantage over Democrats in Texas Senate races, Cruz has said of O’Rourke’s campaign, “We are taking it deadly serious.” During 2018’s second quarter, O’Rourke raised $10.4 million, while Cruz “only” raised $4.6 million. So, as much as Cruz despised Trump in 2016, he obviously feels that he really needs his help in Texas now.

Another Senate race Republicans are concerned about—perhaps more than any other—is the one in Nevada, where recent polls have showed incumbent Republican Dean Heller and Democrat Jacky Rosen in a dead heat. Heller is considered the most vulnerable of the incumbent Republicans seeking reelection, as Nevada was a state that Hillary Clinton carried in 2016’s presidential election.

If Democrats maintained all of their current Senate seats and Rosen defeated Heller in Nevada, they would still need to pick up at least one more seat—for example, a seat in Arizona, where Republican Sen. Jeff Flake is not seeking reelection and Rep. Martha McSally has been the frontrunner in the GOP senatorial primary. In early August, a poll by OH Predictive Insights showed that in a hypothetical matchup between McSally and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democrat was ahead by 4%.

So, in a scenario in which Democrats maintained all of their current Senate seats and there were victories by Rosen in Nevada and Sinema in Arizona, they would have a narrow lead in the Senate in 2019. But that assumes they don’t lose any of the seats they are defending, which is a possibility. In Missouri, incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill is considered the Senate’s most vulnerable Democrat.

Nonetheless, hearing comments that Nunes made about the midterms when he didn’t know he was being recorded speak volumes and point to a growing Republican anxiety about the Senate. Everyone from former Rep. David Jolly to Ohio Gov. John Kasich has been asserting that Republicans are in trouble in the House come November—and judging from Nunes’ comments, some Republicans are very worried about the Senate as well. 


          Here Are 4 Shocking Revelations From the Secret Nunes Tape      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
“If Sessions won't unrecuse & Mueller won't clear Trump we're the only ones."

“The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC has obtained a recording that was surreptitiously made at a GOP fundraiser in Spokane, Washington on July 30—one in which Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California offers a possible explanation on why GOP efforts to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have hit a bump in the road: it might delay Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Here are four of the most shocking revelations from the tape.

1. Nunes Shows Real Sense of Urgency

Far-right Republicans seemed to be quite enthusiastic about impeaching Rosenstein, but to their dismay, House Speaker Paul Ryan came out against the move. And Nunes, in the recording (which was obtained by a liberal/progressive group), indicates that he opposes impeaching Rosenstein at this point because getting Kavanaugh confirmed should be Senate Republicans’ top priority at this point. Asked about Republican plans to impeach Rosenstein, Nunes said that “it’s a bit complicated” because focusing on Rosenstein now would mean less time for Senate Republicans to focus on Kavanaugh. Nunes asserted, “Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?"  

2. Ari Melber: Nunes Admits Foreign Collusion Is a Crime.

MBNBC’s Ari Melber, tweeting on the Nunes tape, asserted that:

(1) “Nunes secretly wants another Rosenstein impeachment push — just after SCOTUS hearing,” and (2) Nunes admits foreign *collusion* on stolen e-mail *is a crime*.

3. Nunes’ Remarks Indicate That He’s Fearful Republicans Could Lose the Senate in November

In the secret tape, Nunes is heard saying that in an impeachment scenario, “The Senate would have to drop everything they’re doing” and “start with impeachment on Rosenstein—and then, take the risk of not getting Kavanaugh confirmed. So it’s not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein. It’s a matter of, it’s a matter of timing.”

Clearly, Nunes’ remarks indicate that he’s fearful Republicans could lose the Senate to Democrats in the November midterms. 

4. Nunes Specifially Mentions Midterms

In the tape, Nunes is heard saying, “I’ve said publicly Rosenstein deserves to be impeached. The question is the timing of it right before the election.”

When President Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland for the seat that the late Antonin Scalia had held on the U.S. Supreme Court, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to hold any confirmation hearings. But with Kavanaugh, Nunes wants confirmation hearings ASAP—which speaks volumes.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how eeest to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Yesterday marked the 81st birthday of author and psychiatrist Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. Her theory of White Genetic Annihilation continues to be substantiated daily. In the United Stated the clocks were moved forward and Donald J. Trump and Hillary R. Clinton pummeled their opponents during the final winter primary; both hold sizable delegate leads and look poised for a November deathmatch for the White House. Once again black people were credited with aiding Clinton's defeat of Senator Bernie Sanders. Speaking of black political power, President Obama nominated Judge Garland Merrick to fill the SCOTUS vacancy. NPR's Nina Totenberg noted that the president picked the only White Man on his short list of candidates. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder testified before Congress about the poisoned water in Flint and how his administration's response. Despite ongoing recall efforts, Mr. Snyder remains employed. And speaking of White men getting off the hook, the continuing trials for the 2013 White Terrorism at San Jose State University highlight the need for criminal justice reform. Two former White students were sentenced to thirty days in jail or weekend work; they must also complete "50 hours of volunteer work with a nonprofit organization serving the black community and enroll in a cultural awareness program on the African-American experience." A third White criminal was given probation. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Lot 302. A diamond, ruby and emerald-set gold Manga Malai necklace, Tamil Nadu, 19th century. Estimate 50,000 — 70,000 GBP. Lot sold  84,100 GBP. Photo Sotheby’s

gold set with rubies, diamonds and emeralds, composed of linked mango-shaped elements supporting a central openwork plaque formed of scrolling foliate tendrils around a central floral rosette, fringed with gold beads, clasp in the form of two addorsed peacocks; 31cm. length.

Note: This manga ‘mango’ malai ‘garland’ is unique to South India and was traditionally worn for special occasions such as weddings and by Bharatha Natyam dancers during performances. The mango is a popular fruit in India where it is regarded as a symbol of love and fertility. The necklace demonstrates the South Indian preference for cabochon rubies. The gems are set using the kundala-velai technique which relates to the north Indian kundan tradition of using a lac-filled sheet of gold to secure the gem. The form of this necklace has its origins in the Chola period and earlier, with bronze and stone sculptures displaying strands of gem-encrusted necklaces of similar design. This necklace compares closely to an example in the David Collection, Copenhagen (Untracht 1997, p.234, no.494). Like the necklace in the David Collection the current lot is composed of series of mango-shaped units held in place by the use of two thattaiyana ponnulla saradu (flatknitted gold wire chains) that pass through loops at the back. Other examples are found in the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha, the Khalili Collection, London (Moscow 2014, nos.18 & 19) and the Hapsburg Collection, Geneva, (Sotheby’s 1987, no.41).

          A decision to allow the AT&T-Time Warner merger to go ahead (again) could depend on a random draw — and AT&T might have shot itself in the foot      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Makan Delrahim, U.S. assistant attorney general for the Antitrust Division, speaks with the media outside U.S. District Court on June 12, 2018 in Washington, DC. A federal judge today said that AT&T can move forward with its $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, which government which the U.S. Justice Department had sought to block.

  • The DOJ released its written appeal argument against the AT&T-Time Warner merger on Monday.
  • As a basis for its appeal, the DOJ argues that US District Court Judge Richard Leon didn't understand its argument in the initial case.
  • Antitrust experts say the outcome of the appeal might rest on the judges chosen at random.

The US Department of Justice is getting another crack at blocking AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner. Experts say the only real shot the DOJ has is if it gets lucky with the right judge.

In a written argument released Monday, the DOJ explained its appeal, saying US District Court Judge Richard Leon fundamentally didn't understand its antitrust case.

"The district court's determination that Time Warner would not have increased bargaining leverage post-merger erroneously disregarded the economics that governs negotiations in this industry," the DOJ wrote in its argument.

While the DOJ will face an uphill battle to win its appeal, according to antitrust experts, they say that the outcome may rest on the judges chosen at random to hear the case.

"A lot depends on the panel you get," George Hay, a former Director of Economics for the DOJ's Antitrust Division, told Business Insider. 

"The D.C. Circuit is a very diverse panel including someone very conservative like [Brett] Kavanaugh. [He] wont participate but the point is you have some extremely liberal judges who are much more favorable to government and some extremely conservative judges who are likely to be hostile to government and you get three judges and it's a random draw."

There are 17 judges in the D.C. circuit including Chief Judge Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama's former Supreme Court nominee, and Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's pick for the court. Judges with conflicts of interest will recuse themselves if chosen.

"We used to call it 'The Wheel' kind of like The Price is Right wheel that was spun," former DOJ Assistant Chief Ethan Glass told Business Insider. "Now I think it is done by computers."

Judges are supposed to be neutral. But they read the news and have views like everybody else.

While evidence that's outside the record can't be the basis for challenging the merger, it might play a role, according to Glass.

"We should think about these judges as people," Glass said. "The circuit judges are people who come with preconceived notions but they also read the news and they are generally aware of whats going on."

"What the opponents to the merger have, I think pretty successfully done, is drawn out a narrative that since the merger was not blocked by Judge Leon, prices have gone up." 

Following the approval of the merger between AT&T and Time Warner, AT&T increased its monthly admin fee from $0.76 to $1.99 for every AT&T monthly customer.

"This is a standard administrative fee across the wireless industry, which helps cover costs we incur for items like cell site maintenance and interconnection between carriers," a representative for AT&T told Business Insider.

AT&T responded to the DOJ's appeal by calling it an attempt at a second chance to block the merger. 

"Appeals aren't 'do-overs,"'AT&T General Counsel David McAtee said in a statement. "After a long trial, Judge Leon weighed the evidence and rendered a comprehensive 172-page decision that systematically exposed each of the many holes in the Government’s case. There is nothing in DOJ’s brief today that should disturb that decision."

While Hay predicts Judge Leon's decision to hold up, he said the appeal is valid.

"I predict that the government will probably lose their appeal," Hay said. "But don't think it's because the appeal is frivolous. The government isn't totally crazy in saying the judge didn't understand the theory."

          Are Republicans Becoming As Worried About Losing the Senate As the House?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

          A decision to allow the AT&T-Time Warner merger to go ahead (again) could depend on a random draw — and AT&T might have shot itself in the foot      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Makan Delrahim, U.S. assistant attorney general for the Antitrust Division, speaks with the media outside U.S. District Court on June 12, 2018 in Washington, DC. A federal judge today said that AT&T can move forward with its $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, which government which the U.S. Justice Department had sought to block.

  • The DOJ released its written appeal argument against the AT&T-Time Warner merger on Monday.
  • As a basis for its appeal, the DOJ argues that US District Court Judge Richard Leon didn't understand its argument in the initial case.
  • Antitrust experts say the outcome of the appeal might rest on the judges chosen at random.

The US Department of Justice is getting another crack at blocking AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner. Experts say the only real shot the DOJ has is if it gets lucky with the right judge.

In a written argument released Monday, the DOJ explained its appeal, saying US District Court Judge Richard Leon fundamentally didn't understand its antitrust case.

"The district court's determination that Time Warner would not have increased bargaining leverage post-merger erroneously disregarded the economics that governs negotiations in this industry," the DOJ wrote in its argument.

While the DOJ will face an uphill battle to win its appeal, according to antitrust experts, they say that the outcome may rest on the judges chosen at random to hear the case.

"A lot depends on the panel you get," George Hay, a former Director of Economics for the DOJ's Antitrust Division, told Business Insider. 

"The D.C. Circuit is a very diverse panel including someone very conservative like [Brett] Kavanaugh. [He] wont participate but the point is you have some extremely liberal judges who are much more favorable to government and some extremely conservative judges who are likely to be hostile to government and you get three judges and it's a random draw."

There are 17 judges in the D.C. circuit including Chief Judge Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama's former Supreme Court nominee, and Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's pick for the court. Judges with conflicts of interest will recuse themselves if chosen.

"We used to call it 'The Wheel' kind of like The Price is Right wheel that was spun," former DOJ Assistant Chief Ethan Glass told Business Insider. "Now I think it is done by computers."

Judges are supposed to be neutral. But they read the news and have views like everybody else.

While evidence that's outside the record can't be the basis for challenging the merger, it might play a role, according to Glass.

"We should think about these judges as people," Glass said. "The circuit judges are people who come with preconceived notions but they also read the news and they are generally aware of whats going on."

"What the opponents to the merger have, I think pretty successfully done, is drawn out a narrative that since the merger was not blocked by Judge Leon, prices have gone up." 

Following the approval of the merger between AT&T and Time Warner, AT&T increased its monthly admin fee from $0.76 to $1.99 for every AT&T monthly customer.

"This is a standard administrative fee across the wireless industry, which helps cover costs we incur for items like cell site maintenance and interconnection between carriers," a representative for AT&T told Business Insider.

AT&T responded to the DOJ's appeal by calling it an attempt at a second chance to block the merger. 

"Appeals aren't 'do-overs,"'AT&T General Counsel David McAtee said in a statement. "After a long trial, Judge Leon weighed the evidence and rendered a comprehensive 172-page decision that systematically exposed each of the many holes in the Government’s case. There is nothing in DOJ’s brief today that should disturb that decision."

While Hay predicts Judge Leon's decision to hold up, he said the appeal is valid.

"I predict that the government will probably lose their appeal," Hay said. "But don't think it's because the appeal is frivolous. The government isn't totally crazy in saying the judge didn't understand the theory."

I too have had the privilege of working alongside some outstanding creative innovative thinkers and Engineers: though for obvious reasons these have been in the textile and related machinery field. I list some names: Alan Carruthers, Kirk Wyatt, Raymond Speakman, Jim Lorkie, Dennis Mattingley, Dennis Evans. Bill Morris, Albert De Barr, Harold Catling, John Brownell, Garland Keith. Between them, these folk probably hold 80-90 % of all the textile 'patents' and ideas that framed the present synthetic fibre and textile industries, world wide. If one takes as one's base the fact that the first and last thing to touch every human ever alive on our planet is a textile and that (except when in the shower) we are all touched by such throughout our lives...the contribution of these outstanding individuals to the ascent of mankind is surely sufficient for them to be beatified. And apart from 'fabrics' for protection from threat, nothing they have done can be construed as debasing us. I commend their memories to all Engineers.

          《华尔街日报》加拿大掀起抵制美货风潮      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
美国的钢铝关税,加上美国总统特朗普对加拿大总理出言不逊,最终惹恼了加拿大民众,并引发了一场抵制美货、支持国货的风潮。 来自阿尔伯塔省斯普鲁斯格罗夫的企业家Garland Coulson表示:“我们一般不太关注产地,要么买味道好的,味道不重要的时候就买价格便宜的。” 但58岁的Coulson说,最近几周,他开始把更多国货放到购物车里。他说,作为与加拿大关系密切的贸易伙伴,美国对加拿大征收关税是一种“打脸”的举动。 家住卡尔加里的Tracy Martell也把Betty Crocker布朗尼预拌粉换成了自制配方,而且自从特朗普就职之后就再没去过美国。家住安大略省巴里的Beth Mouratidis正在尝试用Strub's腌菜代替她一直喜欢的Bick's泡菜。 美国从6月1日起对进口自加拿大的钢铝产品分别征收25%和10%的关税,在接下来一周召开的七大工业国(G7)会议后,美国总统特朗普又发表推文,指责加拿大总理特鲁多(Justin Trudeau)“很不诚实而且软弱”。这导致加拿大国内购买国货、抵制美货的声势进一步增强。加拿大也对美国部分商品实施了报复性关税,其中包括番茄酱、橙汁和酸奶等食品。 总部位于安大略省的Kawartha Dairy Ltd.的营销经理Tom Legere说:“加拿大人觉得受到了美国的不公平对待,必须自强起来。他们在超市里就是这么做的。”Kawartha Dairy Ltd.近日发现,他们生产的冰淇淋需求有所增加。 不过,加拿大人购买国货总会遇到一个难题,那就是什么才算纯粹的国货? 加拿大是美国主要的出口市场,美国出口的产品略超过18%销往加拿大。新斯科舍半岛达尔豪斯大学(Dalhousie University)食品分配和政策学教授Sylvain Charlebois估计,加拿大杂货店约有40%-60%的食品进口自美国。由于生产链紧密相连,很难确定某种产品的自产比例。 这让打算抵制美货的加拿大人挠头,因为要弄明白一种产品究竟有多少是在国外制造或是种植出来的,实在是一项棘手的工作。 Mouratidis在Facebook上管理着一个列表,上面的日用品、食品和其他各类产品均产自本土。她说:“我确定这上面的产品百分之百产自加拿大。”她表示,她曾经以为Old Dutch薯片是完全国产的,后来才发现Old Dutch Foods Ltd.是一家分公司,母公司Old Dutch Foods Inc.的总部位于美国明尼苏达州。 Mouratidis说,这种零食还在她的列表上,因为薯片的产地是加拿大。 家住安大略伯灵顿、已经半退休的通讯专业人士Susan Quinn-Mullins说,由于找不到加拿大种植的红薯,她只有从当地杂货店的冷冻食品中找。Quinn-Mullins称,加拿大食品巨头McCain Foods Ltd.生产红薯薯条,但包装上却写着美国种植。 Quinn-Mullins说,她现在有点激进。她不吃薯条了,可还在找加拿大红薯。 McCain发言人表示,该公司的红薯来自美国,那里的气候更适合红薯生长。 提倡购买国货的热心人有时候也会招来批评。在社交媒体上,一个鼓励大家购买Kawartha Dairy、不买“美国产”哈根达斯冰激淋的帖子招来一名Facebook用户的吐槽,后者指出,加拿大市面上出售的哈根达斯冰激淋其实是一家加拿大工厂生产的。 Nestle Canada Inc.证实,这家工厂使用的牛奶也产自加拿大。 与上面那个帖子没有关系的Kawartha Dairy最近几周收到了100多封来自加拿大人的电子邮件和Facebook私信,询问哪里可以买到该公司的冰激淋。 这股购买国货的风潮还可能给另一个产品带来销路,这就是Hawkins Cheezies玉米芝士脆条,这个产品采用加拿大切达干酪生产,看起来像一款味道更浓、更松脆版的Cheetos芝士脆条。Hawkins Cheezies玉米芝士脆条的生厂商W.T. Hawkins Ltd.表示,有两家大型连锁超市最近增加了这种产品的订单。 还有一些企业成了国货支持者的靶子。自2014年停止在安大略省生产番茄酱以来,卡夫亨氏公司(Kraft Heinz Co.)经常成为加拿大人的抵制目标。在最近网上流传的一份消费者最佳国内产品排名中,French's番茄酱因其“加拿大制造”的身份排在亨氏之前。 这场抵制行动似乎在旅游业成效甚微。根据加拿大国家统计局的数据,尽管有些人刻意避开美国,加拿大人6月份跨境汽车出行总量依然较上年同期增长了12.7%。

          GOP Can't Wait To Examine Kavanaugh's Record After He's Been Confirmed      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



Don't faint, kids! But it seems that the GOP may be populated with GIANT FUCKING HYPOCRITES! The very same senators who demanded every piece of paper that Elena Kagan ever touched are now far too busy to bother with Judge Kavanaugh's voluminous record. Yeah, it's a shocker!

When President Deep Thoughts was thinking deeply about who he was going to appoint to murder Roe v. Wade, Mitch McConnell told him in no uncertain terms to pick one of the other federalist fascists, because those guys hadn't left a mile-wide paper trail. NYT reports,


While careful not to directly make the case for any would-be justice, Mr. McConnell made clear in multiple phone calls with Mr. Trump and the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, that the lengthy paper trail of another top contender, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, would pose difficulties for his confirmation.

Mr. McConnell is concerned about the volume of the documents that Judge Kavanaugh has created in his 12 years on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, as well as in his roles as White House staff secretary under President George W. Bush and assistant to Kenneth W. Starr, the independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton.

But no one puts Babyshits in the corner! So Republicans are now howling foul that Democrats demand to see a million pages of records from the SCOTUS nominee whose record runs to a million pages. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R - Deer Dead) requested a narrower set of documents on Kavanaugh than had been produced for Kagan by August 15. But the National Archives told him to GTFO, since that volume of document production will take them until late October.

Mitch McConnell is "threatening" to delay Kavanaugh's confirmation until just before the midterms if Democrats keep pushing for document production -- which is supposed to be some kind of Gotcha! we guess? In Politico's version of this story, the crafty Majority Leader is forcing vulnerable red state Democrats Heitkamp, Donnelly, Manchin, and McCaskill to stay in DC and take a politically risky vote, only to be "deflated" when they lose. But you can color us mighty skeptical that McConnell would try that shit if he was confident he had the votes. More likely, he's trying to bluff his way into an early hearing before someone finds Kavanaugh's fingerprints all over the infamous John Yoo "Torture Memo." Gotta get that Roe killer confirmed before any more of his writings on presidential immunity from criminal prosecution leak out!

For his part, Chuck Grassley's still insisting that Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing will take place in September, come H-E-double hockey sticks or high water! He's making darn sure that weak-chinned white dude will be on the court when it gavels in the fall term in October. And if the GOP has to plant a story every week about the carpool fascist coaching basketball or going to the daddy-daughter dance, they will do it!

But Democrats also know how to TROLL SO HARD. All 10 Judiciary Committee Dems have filed FOIA requests for Judge Kavanaugh's records from his time as an associate in the White House Counsel's office and as White House staff secretary. Like a common Buzzfeed! If the National Archive is going to claim executive privilege requires it to redact entire categories of Kavanaugh's record -- a claim made by neither Obama nor Clinton when they nominated justices -- then these senators are going to hang a giant neon sign on their partisan intransigence.

And now, time for some #HotTakes.

We are old enough to remember when GOP senators, including Tom Cotton, refused to meet with Merrick Garland when we had a president who wasn't at the center of eleventy hundred criminal investigations. But ... this way madness lies.

VOTE. THESE. FUCKERS. OUT.

          Comment on My Universal Wish List From the Kino Deal by Arthur Powell      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
<blockquote><div>Matt Hough</div>I have been longing to see <i>Paramount on Parade</i> for many, many years. All one can get now is excerpts on YouTube with the most famous stars and numbers. Film historians have discussed the movie at length (Richard Barrios does a fine job with it in his wonderful book on early talkie/musicals), so a complete print is somewhere to be viewed (minus the missing Technicolor sequences only available in black and white), but it remains one of the early movies that's hard to get one's hands on.</blockquote>I've been able to see the 1950s TV reissue version thanks to a VHS recording made off AMC in the 1980s (back when that channel wasn't so concerned with zombies). It's fun to watch but the tv edit was clumsily done (some segments were deleted but their introductions remain). UCLA has done a restoration/reconstruction which like you I would love to see. My understanding is that the UCLA version is similar to the reconstructions done for <i>Lost Horizon</i>, the Judy Garland <i>A Star Is Born</i>, and <i>King of Jazz</i> in that some sequences are represented with stills with audio while others have the film element but no audio. One restored sequence with the singer Dennis King had its audio reconstructed with a contemporaneous 78 rpm commercial recording that King made. The restoration team found with some computer manipulation the commercial recording could be made to fit the film. Maybe someday this restored version will surface (yes, I know some will counter that it does get some exposure on the festival circuit, but if you're outside of LA or NYC you're at a distinct disadvantage).

          Brett Kavanaugh Could Raise the Risk That America Will Torture Again      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

When the administration of President George W. Bush sought legal justification for “enhanced interrogation techniques” such as stress positions, sleep deprivation, and waterboarding, it needed to get around the firm prohibition of torture in international law. One of its strategies was to claim that international law has limited authority over the United States. Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, holds a stark version of this view. His confirmation would threaten the protection of fundamental human rights, including the right not to be tortured.

Torture is prohibited by customary international law and several treaties ratified by the United States. My book The Promise of Human Rights argues that a long-standing policy of marginalizing international human rights law facilitated the United States’ use of torture after 9/11. The battle over the domestic authority of international human rights law is still being waged in Congress and the courts.

Trump once vowed that he would “bring back waterboarding and … a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.” The composition of the Supreme Court may determine whether he or a future president could act on this promise. While torture is prohibited by congressional statute, international law provides vital reinforcement. Bush administration lawyers proved adept at manipulating loopholes in federal anti-torture legislation.

The Bush administration almost succeeded in creating a permanent legal framework for unhampered detention and interrogation policies. Resistance from the Supreme Court was belated and partial, and the addition of one or two supportive justices would have given the Bush administration a free hand. In four major cases, Justice Kennedy voted with narrow majorities to restrain the government’s treatment of foreign captives.

Two of the four cases relied crucially on international law norms. In Hamdi v. Rumsfeld (2004), Justice Sandra Day O’Connor invoked international law principles to hold that Congress’ authorization of military force after 9/11 could not justify “indefinite detention for the purpose of interrogation.” In Hamdan v. Rumsfeld (2006), Justice John Paul Stevens ruled that detainees in what the administration had called the “war on terror” were entitled to basic humanitarian protections of Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions.

Several opinions that Kavanaugh has issued as a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals suggest that he would have voted contrary to Kennedy. Of particular note is his position on international law, spelled out in a lengthy minority opinion in the 2010 Guantánamo case of Bihani v. Obama. Ghaleb Nassar al-Bihani, captured while serving as a cook for a Taliban-allied militia, claimed that his detention violated international law. Kavanaugh rebuffed this argument on the grounds that international law norms, unless written into congressional statutes or included in a limited subset of U.S. treaties, “are not part of domestic U.S. law.”

Kavanaugh’s claims are controversial. The United States’ international law obligations derive principally from its treaty commitments and from customary international law, a set of rules originating in a general practice and normative consensus among states. Kavanaugh’s position that international law norms are generally not part of domestic law conflicts with language in the Constitution declaring that “all treaties” made by the United States “shall be the Supreme Law of the Land.” It is also contrary to a long history of Supreme Court decisions, including O’Connor’s opinion in Hamdi. One of Kavanaugh’s controversial claims is that customary international law does not form part of domestic U.S. law. The Supreme Court has never taken this position, and has repeatedly stated the opposite.

The law of nations, as customary international law used to be known, is referenced in the Constitution. In the Federalist Papers, John Jay and Alexander Hamilton took it for granted that U.S. courts would have authority to enforce it, and Jay wrote as the country’s first chief justice that the United States “had, by taking a place among the nations of the earth, become amenable to the laws of nations.” In Murray v. the Charming Betsy (1804), the Supreme Court ruled that, whenever possible, statutes should be interpreted so that they comply with the law of nations. Arguably, Kavanaugh’s most controversial claim in Bihani is that courts should no longer apply customary international law via the Charming Betsy rule.

Customary international law is a central pillar of the prohibition of torture. In the 1980 case of Filartiga v. Pena-Irala, a federal appeals court judge ruled that, under customary international law, “the torturer has become—like the pirate and slave trader before him—hostis humani generis, an enemy of all mankind.” The judge consequently affirmed that foreign torture victims could seek civil remedies in the U.S. under the Alien Tort Statute, a 1789 law permitting lawsuits by noncitizens for torts committed in violation of the law of nations.

Last August, three torture victims used the Alien Tort Statute to win a settlement against two CIA contractors who had conceived and designed the U.S. torture program. But the Filartiga precedent has been challenged, and Kavanaugh’s views suggest he might join those seeking to end the use of the Alien Tort Statute for making human rights claims.

Kavanaugh’s own record on human rights lawsuits is troubling. In 2009, he joined an opinion that introduced a new doctrine of “battlefield pre-emption” to dismiss claims against private military contractors who had tortured prisoners in Abu Ghraib. It’s hard to find statutory authority for the majority’s argument, as Judge Merrick Garland pointed out in a forceful dissent.

Kavanaugh’s position on international law resembles some of the radical views that underpinned the notorious “torture memos” of the Bush administration. A secret January 2002 memo by John Yoo and Robert Delahunty claimed that “customary international law cannot bind the executive branch under the Constitution,” thus freeing the Bush administration to ignore the customary international law prohibition of torture. The same memo claimed that the president had constitutional authority to unilaterally suspend, contravene, or terminate treaties.

Kavanaugh served as associate White House counsel between 2001 and 2003, and White House staff secretary between 2003 and 2006. It’s unclear how much he knew about, and joined deliberations over, the administration’s detention and interrogation policies.

The nominee’s views place him in the company of the “New Sovereigntists,” the name given by legal scholar Peter Spiro on the eve of the Bush administration to a group of academics and policy analysts seeking to limit the authority of international law over U.S. policy. Among those profiled in Spiro’s 2000 article were John Yoo, a law professor who went on to join the Bush administration and write many of the torture memos, and Jack Goldsmith, another law professor who became director of the administration’s Office of Legal Counsel in 2003. The following year, Goldsmith withdrew one of the principal torture memos and resigned in the fallout, but he did not withdraw authorization of the enhanced interrogation techniques previously approved on the basis of the memo.

Goldsmith had co-authored an influential Harvard Law Review article in 1997 challenging the authority of customary international law. Described by Spiro as “the opening salvo in the New Sovereigntist Crusade,” the article is invoked in the Yoo-Delahunty memo, and helps build the foundation for Kavanaugh’s Bihani opinion as well as a 2004 minority opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia arguing that the Alien Tort Statute may not be used to enforce customary international law.

While Goldsmith’s views have moderated over time, Kavanaugh situates himself at the far end of the New Sovereigntist movement. Goldsmith has argued that Congress’s post-9/11 authorization of military force does not authorize (though neither does it prohibit) acts that violate the international law of war. In Bihani, Kavanaugh expressly rejected any such interpretive limit on the congressional authorization of military force.

Kavanaugh does not even seem to think that executive and legislative officials are obligated to follow international law, for he writes in Bihani that they may choose whether or not to do so.

Kavanaugh’s radical views have momentous implications. A core purpose of international law is to shield individuals from the worst abuses of state power. If Kavanaugh is elevated to the Supreme Court, his insistence on marginalizing international law will severely undermine human rights.
