All of the “prophets” and wingnuts who boldly predicted that Republicans would sweep the midterms in a “red tsunami” are now scrambling for excuses. Mark Taylor said it did happen, but only “spiritually” (whatever the hell that means). Kat Kerr says it really did happen too, but she put an amusing twist on why we didn’t notice: (more…) Read more

While admitting that he may be being a bit too optimistic, Benjamin Wittes offers up a list of reasons why he thinks it’s really too late for new Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, or whoever takes over permanently, to stop the Mueller investigation. I’m a big skeptical, but here are what I think are his strongest arguments: (more…) Read more

Donald Trump, Jr. joined his father in lying through his teeth about the prevalence of voter fraud, particularly in Florida, tweeting a link to a six-year old article about the Florida government falsely claiming 180,000 cases of potential illegal voting in the state. In reality, they found less than 100 — and those were only potential cases, not actual cases. (more…) Read more

The New York Times has a report on the thousands of American soldiers sent to the Mexican border by Trump to await the “invasion” of poor, persecuted people fleeing violence and oppression. He’s taken them away from their families and put them in the desert in harsh conditions for no reason whatsoever, a purely political stunt. (more…) Read more

This will certainly not be a surprise to anyone. Jeff Sessions’ last act as Attorney General was to further undermine the already thin protections we have against police brutality and misconduct, reversing another Obama-era policy by making it much more difficult to use consent decrees with local police departments to curb abuses.

Faced with the total failure of his “prophecy” that last week’s midterm elections would result in a “red tsunami” rather than a blue wave, Christian con man and self-declared “prophet” reached for one of the most common and ridiculous excuses used by such frauds — it did happen, you just aren’t spiritually enlightened enough to see it.

The more that comes out about Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, the more far outside the mainstream of even conservative legal thinking he is. He makes Clarence Thomas seem like a moderate. Not only does he not believe in judicial review, he also thinks states can nullify federal law whenever they disagree with it. (more…) Read more
