"Congressional Republicans are getting ready for hell. Axios has obtained a spreadsheet that's circulated through Republican circles on and off Capitol Hill..."

"... including at least one leadership office — that meticulously previews the investigations Democrats will likely launch if they flip the House."

It sounds worse as a generality than if you read the itemization:

  • President Trump’s tax returns
  • Trump family businesses — and whether they comply with the Constitution's emoluments clause, including the Chinese trademark grant to the Trump Organization
  • Trump's dealings with Russia, including the president's preparation for his meeting with Vladimir Putin
  • The payment to Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels
  • James Comey's firing
  • Trump's firing of U.S. attorneys
  • Trump's proposed transgender ban for the military
  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's business dealings
  • White House staff's personal email use
  • Cabinet secretary travel, office expenses, and other misused perks
  • Discussion of classified information at Mar-a-Lago
  • Jared Kushner's ethics law compliance
  • Dismissal of members of the EPA board of scientific counselors
  • The travel ban
  • Family separation policy
  • Hurricane response in Puerto Rico
  • Election security and hacking attempts
  • White House security clearances

Jesus saves, Moses investigates.

Matt Sablan said...

I mean, that's just being prepared. I'd be surprised if they WEREN'T doing this.

Has Axios looked to see if the Democrats are circulating a list of investigations they want to look into?

rhhardin said...

Call the spreadsheet discovery scandal Investigate.

tim in vermont said...

Yes, let’s get all over “personal email use.”

This one is particularly rich: “and whether they comply with the Constitution’s emoluments clause"

How much money did their most recent candidate for president, the one they are still so butt hurt that she lost, that one, how much money did she take from people with business before her as Secretary of State? Why wasn’t that a problem?

Generic Ballot is even. Oh, I know, Rasmussen is a Republican shill and never right. Proof of which is that his polls always seem to lean Republican, and yet Republicans hold the House, the Senate, and the presidency.

As I recall, house flipping contributed to the 2007 financial crash. Wouldn’t want to see that again.

I imagine that the Democrats have binders full of spreadsheets.

Yeah, this one’s a nothing burger.

traditionalguy said...

The CIA owned and operated Media has already written its long scripts for the coming deluge of stories about Trump's True Crimes. No wonder the Dems all presume they will easily win back the Presidency in 2020. They discount Trump fighting back. Stay tuned.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

That's the list? Remarkable scandal free.

Dave Begley said...

All of the US Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President. They all resign when a different administration takes over. They weren't fired. Too bad all of the liberals in the DOJ and FBI also weren't fired. They continue under the cover of being "career officials" and, hence, nonpartisan. Ha!

Darrell said...

Not a single thing on the list warrants a second look. It's an old Lefty trick. You say something--anything--then by your tone and expression you make it seem like the biggest crime ever.

Just say "fuck you" to your Democrat colleagues and if that isn't enough, hit them in the head with a three-pound engineer's hammer.

Does anybody imagine anything different whether the House flips this November or in November 2032?
The complete weaponization of government is not the goal.

It is still all about reversing an election they did not like by non-democratic means.

For the same reason the spreadsheet story is bogus. Congressional investigations are time-consuming exercises in tangents, triva, and anticlimax.

If all that evidence was sitting around announcing itself, it would already be applied.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

So if the Democrats retain power, absolutely nothing positive for the American people will be getting done. All their energy will be wasted on this bullshit.

Business will go backwards, the economy will start to crash and continue crashing, all of the diplomatic progress will be erased, illegal alien invasion will ramp up, taxes will go up, regulations be reinstated. The Anti-fa and SJW morons will be energized.

Sell your portfolios people. Take defensive positions. Hunker down in your bunkers. It is going to be a bumpy ride.

Matt Sablan said...

"Why aren't the Republicans doing a better job of publicly investigating Democratic sins, starting with the Clinton Foundation?"

-- Honestly, they can't. The FBI botched the initial investigations so badly, so much evidence is tainted or lost or no longer usable that realistically, nothing is happening to Clinton. You could, maybe, get some of her underlings on perjury, but you'd have to withdraw their immunities, which they seem unwilling to do.

I think the USA needs an investigation of the pay-to-play scheme that Hillary Clinton operated while she was Secretary of State.

Matt Sablan said...

Remember: The FBI knew about the Clinton campaign and staff taking hammers to government devices to destroy them so that the data on it couldn't be recovered -- and *did nothing* despite the fact those devices were subpoenaed. A serious investigation of Clinton was never in the cards.

Earnest Prole said...

Elections have consequences.

Darrell said...

There is no Red Wave. There never was the possibility of a Red Wave. The Democrats have conducted themselves so deplorably that everyone realized they were crazy and had nothing to offer. They tries to tell people that any tax cut would be disastrous. They tried to push the open borders nonsense, even though 72% of the country hates it. They kept on pushing the rest of the Soros agenda because they have to--he owns them, body and soul. The JournoListers think if they say it, it will happen. Yeah. Like they made Hillary happen.

Henry said...

Funny that the laundry list is the sell, not the reporting.

I clicked through to garner this:

The spreadsheet — which I'm told originated in a senior House Republican office — catalogs more than 100 formal requests from House Democrats this Congress, spanning nearly every committee.

So that's actual news, for what it's worth.

Darrell said...

Shit like this happens because of ChuckRepublicans.
Fuck ChuckRepublicans.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

For Congress, nothing done is a high standard.

Matt Sablan said...

"The spreadsheet — which I'm told originated in a senior House Republican office — catalogs more than 100 formal requests from House Democrats this Congress, spanning nearly every committee."

-- Oh, so this isn't stuff the Republicans irrationally fear might be investigated; these are things Democrats have told them they'll investigate given the option.

What's the story, exactly?

Mike Sylwester said...

The problem for the Democrats is that even though the DOJ/FBI refused to investigate Hillary Clinton, the electorate remembers that the DOJ/FBI refused to investigate her.

Chuck said...

So this was prepared by Republicans, and circulated among Republicans?

Wouldn't it be safe to also presume that it was leaked by one or more Republicans? Althouse regularly -- and often rightly -- warns us to take care to notice who it is that is the source of leaked news. I am doing that right now.

I really don't think that Democrats want to undertake all of those investigations. They want the Department of Justice to undertake them, and finish the Muller investigation, which they hope (and which I mostly expect) will turn up some serious federal crimes on the part of Donald Trump, the Trump Foundation and the Trump Organization. But more than anything, just let Mueller's office finish its work.

H said...

The House and Senate under Republican leadership have already held investigations or hearings on a number of these. I'm pretty sure Comey testified; I'm pretty sure I've heard testimony from DHS officials on border separations; Hurricane response; election security. Duelling party memos on Russia/Trump.

So what republic shaking issues remain: Mnuchin's finances? What about Mnuchin's wife's finances?

Matt Sablan said...

"I really don't think that Democrats want to undertake all of those investigations."

-- They do. Or at least, they're willing to file requests to do so while out of power to make headlines. Apparently, the list, cited above, came from formal requests, not just random musings.

Matt Sablan said...

"I'm pretty sure Comey testified."

-- And perjured himself while admitting to leaking confidential information. *And nothing happened to him.* Which is why it is hard to take most of these investigations seriously.

Mike Sylwester said...

If the electorate agrees that the USA should have sanctuary cities for illegal aliens, then the Democrats will win the future elections.

stlcdr said...

Ah, a list of all the things that democrats are going to do to actually manage the country and make it a better place to live. You know, like the whole point they are voted into office.

Oh. It’s none of that? Looks like a witch hunt to take someone down.

Michael K said...

Mike Sylwester said...

Before the Democrats get too optimistic, they should keep in mind that Vladimir Putin surely will buy more Facebook ads during our election races this year.

That might again be a decisive advantage for the Republicans, as it was in 2016.

The Crack Emcee said...

The Democrats are so mismanaged I hardly consider this a threat.

William said...

If they can't indict Trump, they'll get one of his children, or they' get some of the people he did business with. Trump was a real estate developer and casino owner. Look hard enough and you'll find something.......Democrats should be aware of the precedent they're setting. All their outrage about Trump's sexism has led to the fall and disgrace of a great many Democrats without ever really harming Trump.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“All their outrage about Trump's sexism has led to the fall and disgrace of a great many Democrats without ever really harming Trump.”

It has nothing to do with Trump’s sexism. If you’re truly as concerned with corruption as you claim, you wouldn’t be so willing to turn a blind eye to Trump’s. Your Clinton Derangement Syndrome has deranged your thinking and reason.

Sebastian said...

What can Dems promise besides investigations and impeachment?

Scorching the earth is their MO.

For the record, I'm all for it. The more investigations the better.

No mention is made of Session’s guy in the Utah District Court accumulating 46000 sealed indictments ready to arrest corrupt pols and friends from both parties that have sold out for Saudi cash when that was Congresses only primary function for over 30 years.

Darrell is correct- this is designed 'leak' in order to help flip the House, not to discuss what will happen when/if it happens.

I can't imagine the meltdown when/if the House doesn't flip. Maybe a few lefties will actually move to Canada.

Darkisland said...

Watch for a Presidential counterattack against Twitter this week.

I've been saying for a while that President Trump could put a serious hurting on Twitter by using Gab.ai instead. This may be the week.

I've had a Gab.ai account for a year or two now but have never done much with it. (I do very little with Twitter, either) Yesterday I got an email from Gab.ai that President Trump was now following me.

It is a new account, created in August but it doesn't say what day. No posts yet. As far as I can tell it is a verified account and is really himself. Not that many followers yet but seems to be following everyone on Gab. That would seem like a logical way to notify people he is there and that they should follow him.

What will be really cool would be if he starts posting while Twitter's Jack Dorsey is testifying this week. Then perhaps one of the Congresspeople can ask him "Hey, Jack, what is this Gab.ai thing President Trump is posting on?"

A second prediction: There has already been battlespace preparation about Gab being a white nationalist service. Some of this is because people have come there after being forced off Twitter. There also seems to be a Soros group effort to post false-flag white nationalist and racist notes.

Gab.ai is explicitly free speech so doesn't take them, or any other legal thing down.

Is Facebook next?

That's a good list which if followed by a Democrat majority in Congress will keep them occupied enough that they won't be able to do anything else. This deplorable considers that a huge win.

Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi are married to wealthy bankers. I'm sure that the money their spouses has made comes from hard work and shrewd business acumen. Pelosi and Waters would have no objections to anyone investigating the business dealings of their family.......I read the Caro book. LBJ's wife owned a string of rural radio stations in Texas. People who had need of favorable treatment in the Senate found it advisable to advertise on those radio stations. My guess is that LBJ isn't the only Democrat to figure out a scam.

Discussion of classified information at Mar-a-Lago

How would they know this? Is it some argument that Trump talked about classified information at Mar-a-Lago, because as President, he can do that. Are Democrats tapping his phones at Mar-a-Lago?

If we got a good robust investigation of Hillary Clinton going, do you suppose it could have some real consequence? Like, perhaps her impeachment? No, wait, that's not right is it?

Matt Sablan said...

"As we have already covered, leaking confidential (as opposed to classified) information is not illegal. It could get you fired, but it is not a crime."

-- Whoever told you that is wrong: (a) Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information

The definition of classified information being: "The term “classified information” means information which, at the time of a violation of this section, is, for reasons of national security, specifically designated by a United States Government Agency for limited or restricted dissemination or distribution;"

So. Yes. Confidential information related to national security (which we're told the things Comey leaked were since they dealt with Russia) is a crime. Sorry if someone who didn't bother to read everything lied to you.

mockturtle said...

Do these Dumb-ocrats realize that they are motivating people to vote GOP even if they hadn't intended to? Most people--yes, most!--want Trump to stay in office. Even a lot of people who didn't vote for him, or didn't vote at all, are now firmly in his camp. Threatening to derail his presidency is an urgent call to the polls for Republicans and Independents alike.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...


What about Claire McCatkill's money, or Diane Finstein's rich husband and his government contracts?, or Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters,

Or Bernie Sanders mega millions. When democrats harvest millions with protected hidden insider government-for-life seats, they get the Menendez treatment.

Gospace said...

If the part of the electorate that never shows up to vote can be convinced Democrats are interested in them, the Republican victory will be overwhelmingly huge.

People who rarely pay attention to politics except to bitch don't want politicians to help, hinder, or be interested in them at all; they want to be left alone and ignored. T.C. Mits is starting to get really tired of having to carefully watch his words or be hauled before a reeducation committee at work. And he can see where it's coming from. Exclusively the left side of the aisle. And it's becoming clear they won't leave anyone alone.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Do these Dumb-ocrats realize that they are motivating people to vote GOP even if they hadn't intended to?”

Do you dummies have no idea of the massive amount of energy there is on the left to come out to vote? People who aren’t already Trumpists are not going to vote Republican because people are asking legitimate questions about Trump.

Please, no more congressional investigations. Just start swinging the axe in the DOJ, FBI, and CIA. Giving Strozk the heave-ho was long overdue. Let's see more firings, and some prosecutions.

When Democrats have control of the House, they will have subpoena power and believe me they will subpoena people who the Republicans refused to.

Nope. The numbers are far far higher than a normal uncontested Primary. Do some research.

Qwinn said...

Can Inga share one legitimate reason as to why Republicans shouldn't respond to any Democrat subpoenas exactly the same way that Hillary did, i.e. with hammers to hard drives? Cause I'd like to see them do that even if there's nothing incriminating on them, just to make the point.

Inga's response about numbers being "far far higher than a normal uncontested primary" makes absolutely no sense to me. Can't see any way to interpret that that actually bolsters her supposed point. Anyone able to puzzle out what she's trying to claim here?

TreeJoe said...

I work in sales and growing small businesses. Been doing it for 15 years.

So often, you "win" because your competitor lost. It's not because you are great.

Democrats have a modest possibility of taking the House after a 1+ year special prosecutor and wall to wall negative coverage of the incumbent republican administration. Their platform is almost entirely about pursuing the administration.

This is a situation in which the democrats polling averages should be seen as damning. If I was a democrat, I would look at this and go "oh my God, my party is in a disasterous state".

I think they may win the house. I don't think they should celebrate and I HOPE we see some new democratic leadership involved.

Inga...Allie Oop: In the recent Primary for Governor, in Wisconsin, 81,000 more Democrats came out to vote than Republicans.

In the 2014 Wisconsin gubernatorial primary, 72000 more Democrats came out to vote than Republicans. In the general, Walker won by a margin of over 135000.

Vote count was up about 72% in the Democratic primary from 2014, but up about 90% in the Republican primary.

There appears to be a significant increase in enthusiasm from four years ago, but that enthusiasm increase does not favor the Democrats.

tim in vermont said...

The “reckoning” is what Democrats are facing right now for trying to ram Hillary down America’s collective throat. Even Inga couldn’t vote for her. Hillary worked to position Trump for the nomination, it’s all in Wikileaks. She has been shown to be far more responsible for Trump being president than anything from Putin. Putin was greasing the palms of both Manafort and Podesta. Betting both sides.

Qwinn said...

Thanks for adding the necessary context to Inga's bullshit, SeanF.

Looking at it another way: In 2014, Democrats had a 30% advantage over Republicans in primary voters (but still lost the general). In the 2018 primary, The D advantage is only 18%.

There's really zero reliable data that aligns stock market behavior to the party in power -- Congress or White House.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.


A-freaking-men, WB. The world stands on the brink of great, marvelous changes wrought by technology and commerce. Poverty is plummeting. Human life is becoming more dignified for more people than at any time in the history of our species. We should be celebrating, soberly of course, since no human made achievement cannot be undone by humans. Instead, our country looks like it is going to tear itself apart over issues that, on the scale of history, are absurdly petty. The center cannot hold, meanwhile we ignore what is slouching toward Bethlehem to be born. Yeats was prescient. He wrote the "Second Coming" in 1919. How many more hundreds of millions of bodies stacked up in the second half of the 20th century?

I see Inga as a duplicitous liar--a strictly partisan hack. When she gets called out on it, she lashes out. It must be tough knowing that you have to wait for the fire brigade to get you out of your home, as she must. When she mentioned her weight loss last week, I wondered how many hundreds of pounds must she lose before she is simply considered morbidly obese. Sad.

Just a small indicator in this era of overflowing bullshit is < the effect of Trump on the Florida Governor's race.

With the 2018 primaries about to end, all but two of the 37 Republicans Mr. Trump has endorsed for House, Senate and governor during their primary campaigns have won. Mr. Trump has abandoned or undercut the party’s traditional commitment to free trade, fiscal conservatism and a hawkish foreign policy.

Mr. Trump’s most vocal GOP critics in elective office—none more forceful than Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who died Saturday—have been defeated in primaries, announced their retirement or gone quiet.


Chuck and Inga most affected.

finish the Muller investigation, which they hope (and which I mostly expect) will turn up some serious federal crimes on the part of Donald Trump, the Trump Foundation and the Trump Organization. But more than anything, just let Mueller's office finish its work.

Which is exactly the charge to the Special Counsel, right?

Nope, just the witch hunt that the leftist are so adapt at. As usual, Democrats are huge failures at legislating. The only victories they ever have are handed to them by judges.

My only wish, is Republicans would do exactly what the Dems do all the time.

OT. I see the new US Attourney Geoffery Berman SDNY was ordered by Rosenstien to recuse himself From the Cohen show trials. Without a Specific conflict, I see obstruction of justice.

It could (emphasize, COULD) backfire if they pursue all those threads and the public sees how ridiculous much of it is, even to the point that some serious issues get buried in all the garbage.

"No one cares about what Trump did with Stormy Daniels. It’s what Trump did in his attempts to cover it up shortly before the election. Are you people truly this stupid?"

It was not illegal for Trump. As Dershowitz has pointed out, Daniels could have a letter from Trump saying "Here is some money to shut you up about our affair so I can get elected" and it still wouldn't be a violation. He is allowed to spend any amount of his own money on almost anything to help his election, and it's not illegal to pay someone to shut up, although it is illegal for Daniels to demand it. There are only campaign donation limits for others, but not for yourself.

On politics, we seem to be getting an echo chamber on the left.

My daughter commented to me during a carpool the driver was listening to the Young Turks. She was shocked at the anger level.

The Democrats have turned up Trump hatred to an 11, and it’s a self perpetuating machine that just gets stronger.

And Trump is happy to add gas to the fire / outrage machine, since it causes his opponents to look hyper partisan, and over step themselves.

I wonder if the Democrats and LLR outrage levels will ever go down during the Trump administration.

I hope the backlash to the over reach by Mueller will change the current system of “show me the man, I’ll show you the crime”

As we speak the Nation States named Mexico and the United States, both under new management, are replacing the sneaky North American Trade Union that was put into place early on to erect a New World Order provence.

Michael, when ignorant fuckwads who frequent these comments pages write that I am lying, when I say that I am a lifelong Republican who voted for Trump, I am going to call them ignorant fuckwads.

When certain commenters here write that I am lying about being a lawyer, I am going to call them ignorant fuckwads as well. And when some crazed commenters write that I am a drunk, or mentally diseased, I'll call those ignorant fuckwads out for what they are.

I was never the source of foul-language personal attacks on these pages. I was the target of those attacks in the first instance. It's garbage, and since Althouse won't police it, I'll respond in kind. Which is not intended or calculated to help with the readability of the blog's comments. But as long as Althouse deems it not her job to moderate her comments, it won't be my job to help with the readability of her comments pages.

And again Michael -- you ignorant fuckwad -- you called me out in this page as rooting for the Democrats to take the House. When I have never written or said anything like that.

More bad news for Chuck and Inga.

Mexico's AMLO wants NAFTA done before he takes office, says expert Mexico's AMLO wants NAFTA done before he takes office, says expert
3 Hours Ago | 04:06
The U.S. and Mexico struck a trade deal on Monday that paved the way to replace NAFTA, the current agreement between the two nations and Canada.

President Donald Trump said the deal would be called The United States-Mexico Trade agreement, getting rid of the NAFTA name. "The name NAFTA has a bad connotation because the United States was hurt very badly by NAFTA," he said. Trump added that the deal with Mexico is also very special for farmers and manufacturers. "We've made it better" for both countries.

Officials were in Washington trying to work out the issues as the Trump administration pushes to remake the 1994 agreement with the U.S., Mexico and Canada. There was some hope that a new NAFTA could be solidified before Mexico's government turnover on Dec. 1.


Damn, another win for that goddamned Trump !

And the other postings have all been of where Larry Sharpe for Governor appearances are happening. Larry Sharpe, Libertarian Party candidate. Nothing pro or con on the Republican candidate, whoever he is. Since I know the Republican candidate is going to, lose, I may just vote for Larry Sharpe. Because based on the number of people I've seen post on him, and who the people are- there's a lot of support for him. NY rules- if he gets >5% of the LP gets a permanent ballot line until the next gubernatorial election. And line position is determined by vote percentage. If he gets more than the Republican, they get 2nd line. Here's his facebook page link: https://www.facebook.com/Sharpe4Gov

Screw Trump. I'm so done with him that done doesn't even describe it. I've gotten tired of winning.

Here is what happened:

I have a US client that I have done a lot of work for who has a similar plant in Malaysia. I was supposed to go there for 2 weeks toward the end of th eyear. Now, thanks to that bastard Trump, they are closing the plant and moving it to New Jersey. Not even the nice parts of NJ (I have heard there are some) but that north jersey sinkhole.

I may still get the work but it'll be 2 weeks in Jersey instead of Malaysia. (I figured on a 2-3 day layover in Korea, too)

So Screw you, President Trump. There can be such a thing as too much winning. How the Hell can he make it attractive to move an operation, supplying Asia, very manual, from low labor cost Malaysia to a high labor cost New Jersey?

/Rant

Just kidding above. I am tickled pink that the operation is moving (not moving back, but moving) to the US. I am disappointed at not going to Malaysia but I'll take the bitter with the sweet.

Not the lest bit tired of winning yet.

Democrats are encouraged because the DOJ/FBI are in the hands of eunuchs Sessions and Wray and Obot Rosenstein.

In more courageous hands reopening the email investigation and including Obama, a Panetta overseas dealing investigation, looking into security violations by Rice and Obama, following up whistleblows in the FBI, particularly on Mueller would likely provide interesting counterpunches.

Inga said...
"In the recent Primary for Governor, in Wisconsin, 81,000 more Democrats came out to vote than Republicans."

You know that sounds like a lot, like a whole lot. So I pulled stats on the Wisconsin primary results FROM 2014. I just looked at the Governor primary and this is what I found:

Democrats
312106 votes

Republicans
240102

A difference of 72000.

Now don't get me wrong, increasing turnout by 12.5% is not shabby, but it makes that 81000 number far far less impressive.

Glen Greenwald interview in May of 2018:

Well, as you know, I’ve been a skeptic of this entire Russia Mueller investigation from the start. And, you know, we’ve seen this so many times before in Washington, where allegations of impropriety lead to an independent counsel or special counsel, and then, years later, the special counsel is so far afield from the original allegations that nobody even remembers what prompted the investigation to begin with. And I think, in large part, that’s what’s happened here. Remember that in 2016 the controversy began because people in the Clinton campaign, and then the intelligence community, claimed that Vladimir Putin himself ordered Russian intelligence officials to hack the DNC and John Podesta email inbox and that the Trump campaign colluded with them to do that, cooperated and conspired with them on the hacking. Here we are, 18 months later. There have been a lot of indictments, but none of those indictments have anything to do with those original claims, nor has any evidence been presented that those original claims are actually true.

Lucid evaluation. Can't be disputed.

Interesting article, especially this quote: "A U.S. judge on Monday extended a ban on the online distribution of 3-D printed gun blueprints, a win for a group of mainly Democratic-led states that said such a publication would violate their right to regulate firearms and endanger their citizens."

A state's right to regulate firearms? Don't see that anywhere in the Constitution. Not even in the 10th amendment. I do see the 2nd amendment, A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Since we, the people, are the militia, I will continue to state that every law abiding citizen should have an unfettered right to freely obtain the standard firearm issued to the infantry. Without interference from the government. And without the government keeping track.

in the good ole days, Madonna assembled a curious set list:

The Material Girl’s message was decidedly feminist and anti-Donald J. Trump, the Republican nominee. “Women are marginalized, let’s face it,” Madonna said between songs. “As far as I’m concerned, we still live in an extremely chauvinist, sexist, misogynist country. And that’s why Hillary Clinton needs to be president.”

The show was just five songs long: Madonna’s own “Express Yourself,” “Like a Prayer” and “Don’t Tell Me” as well as “Imagine” and a mash-up of “If I Had a Hammer” and her “Rebel Heart.” It was mainly a singalong, in the folk music tradition of the Village. People held signs, shouted “I’m with her” and appeared to know all of the words.

Hey, I know Chuck! I know what he'd say! You shoulda asked him!

Chuck loves the nominations of Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh, and most of the rest of the Trump federal judicial nominations.

Chuck likes Besty DeVos, a lot.

Chuck vehemently opposed the Lawrence/Windsor/Obergefell line of cases which federalized the law of homosexual rights.

Chuck thinks that Citizens United was great, and McCain-Feingold was rotten.

Chuck likes some of the most contentious figures in American politics in recent years; Judge Jay Bybee and John Yoo of the Bush DoJ OLC; Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby; Mitch McConnell; Justices Scalia and Thomas; Kris Kobach of Kansas; Brad Smith of Capital University; Hans von Spakovsky of Heritage and AEI; etc., etc.

Chuck has voted a straight Republican ballot in every general election in this young century. Chuck has been an election day volunteer for the Republican National Lawyers Association.

The only writing from Chuck that is at all disloyal to the current Republican Party, such as it is, is Chuck's criticism of Donald Trump personally. But you knew that. Actually, you SHOULD HAVE known that, but you seem to have pretended to not understand that. Chuck is not anti-Republican. Chuck is anti-Trump, but pro-Republican.
