‘Biden under pressure to unveil list of potential court picks’

“ATLANTA (AP) — Joe Biden is resisting calls from President Donald Trump and even some fellow Democrats to release his list of potential Supreme Court picks seven months after he pledged to name the first Black female justice.

Some on the left suggest that outlining potential picks would help Biden build enthusiasm in the final weeks of the campaign, particularly after he already selected California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, making her the first Black woman on a major presidential ticket. Trump, meanwhile, is eager to comb through a list to find possible nominees who would bolster his false depiction of Biden as an extreme liberal.”.....

“ Trump offered a preview last week, challenging Biden to match his list of choices while sketching a caricature of “radical justices” he insisted would gut Second Amendment rights, remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance and declare the death penalty unconstitutional. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a former Senate Judiciary chair, followed up Wednesday by urging Biden not to “hide” his intentions for the court.

On the left, the group Demand Justice wants to match the right’s intensity on judicial politics, while a second group, She Will Rise, is raising awareness about the possibility of a Black woman joining the high court.

Demand Justice has assembled a list of 17 Black women it says would make ideal justices. The list includes law professors, leading civil rights attorneys and jurists from lower federal courts and state supreme courts. But there are no names as prominent as the headliners on Trump’s list: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton.

Demand Justice has launched a $2 million ad campaign targeting voters in Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin around the Supreme Court and Biden’s promise of a Black female nominee. But executive director Brian Fallon argued that Biden could do more.

“Whatever good is achieved by making a general commitment like that would only be expanded and furthered if he put out some names of people he’s considering,” said Fallon, an adviser on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.“


I wonder if Angela Davis is on the short list. Is Jerry Brown’s sister Rose Bird available?

Insight: “People constantly speak of ‘the government’ doing this or that, as they might speak of God doing it. But the government is really nothing but a group of men, and usually they are very inferior men.” —H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)

Observations: “A culture that presents children as sexual objects is a culture that exploits them for adult gratification. This is not limited to adults receiving sexual gratification from children. More often, it is about making the adults feel better about the sexual choices they themselves have made, regardless of what this does to the children.” —Laura Hollis

Upright: “Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character. We must clear away the web of twisted lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country.

Thanks Democrats.


Gotta love Der Mayor's little speeches. EVERYTHING IS FINE. Of course, he'd let the city burn to the ground before he'd take help from Trump & the Feds. It isn't like Trump would win New York state, that has nothing to do with it. The 'Resistance' is a lot bigger than just an anti-Trump election stunt, and they are fine with a bit of collateral damage.

JH Kunstler speaks:

"There’s the Swamp teeming with scaley, slithery, sharp-toothed, many-footed predators, but then there’s the miasma hanging over the Swamp, a toxic mist of lies, misdirection, dis-info, propaganda, bad faith, and sedition, illuminated by pulsing blue gaslight that affords a toxic blanket of protection to the denizens of the Swamp. Now a storm is brewing. The critters are evacuating their mud-holes and moiling about desperately among the cypress knobs as a mighty wind rises — the election hurricane — threatening to sweep it (and them) all away!

The climate is changing, all right, but not in the way that some think it is. The political climate is changing, and what has been a pestilential subtropical sink on the Potomac is overdue for that cleansing we’ve heard about. Weeks from now, as the fetid water subsides, the protective miasma above will dissipate and the people from sea to shining sea will finally get a good look at the landscape revealed and the pitiful, wriggling, dying life-forms of the order Democratica stranded on it.

“Here is the latest from Joe Biden: he misread his teleprompter, and pronounced that by the time his speech was over, 200 million Americans–two-thirds of our population!–will have died from COVID-19, and it is all President Trump’s fault:”...

“Joe Biden has never been an intelligent person, but there was a time when his brain would have sounded an alarm if he was about to say that 2/3 of the U.S. population was about to perish. But those days are gone. Biden is a pathetic shell of a man, and for the Democrats to continue propping him up as a presidential candidate is elder abuse.

Because of the crazy environment in which we live, there is a chance that Biden might be elected president. But he will never serve as president. He can’t. He is senile, suffering from advanced dementia. If the Democrats care, they aren’t showing it.”


paul emery


What is your explanation of Trump not being able to pronounce Yosemite two times? Was it ignorance or a mistake or was it just too complex a word for him. Should the Republicans pull the plug on his candidacy?



from a misplaced post:

from Paul Emery-

I cannot imagine more incompetence than what the Trump administration exhibited during the Pandemic. 200,000 death and climbing later is evidence enough.


Yes, Punchy, so... you now think Trump should have sent troops into New York and New Jersey to reverse their push to put patients with active infections into long term care facilities?
There would be many fewer Americans dead had Dem governors used common sense."


You know, that's a pretty good question and needs answering I think.

Paul, should Trump have sent in federal troops to save the old people?

Oddly, the US has slightly more deaths per million than Sweden, which did essentially nothing.

Damn that Trump! Why did he do anything at all?!

I also see that Papua New Guinea only had 6 deaths total. I guess they know how to wash their hands better than New Yorkers.

moral of the story...
(1) Nobody knows nothin really, you see approaches and results all over the map (so to speak) worldwide
(2) Paul will use anything, including dead grandmas, to make a political jab.


Just for Paul's sake, I'll re-post this.


To tell you the truth, he's probably the most with it Democrat I've seen in some time. Maybe he is their best man.

What exactly was Trumps policy on dealing with the Corona Virus when he said this:

March 24: 65,800 confirmed cases in U.S.

Wants country and economy "raring to go by Easter"

"I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter," the president said of easing social distancing guidelines in parts of the country."
"I think Easter Sunday — you'll have packed churches all over our country." — Fox News town hall.

We now have over 200,000 deaths. Do you consider Trumps actions and policies to be successful?


Bill Tozer

Paul, here is your explanation why Trump mispronounced Yosemite. It happened at a pray breakfast honoring the military of all places.

“The press corps needled Obama over his geographical gaffes (mispronouncing Massachusetts, boasting of visiting all 57 states), trotted out his most famous hot mic.....


Funny how that one above got taken down. Probably hate speech or somethang.

“Don’t waste any pity on Obama, though. The president, who later walked out to the chorus of “Cups” (“When I’m gone / When I’m gone / You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone”), managed to fit a few good digs at press corps too — drawing particular attention to the excessive coverage it has lavished on Donald Trump.
“I don’t want to spend too much time on The Donald,” Obama said pointedly after cracking a few jokes at the mogul’s expense. “Following your lead, I want to show some restraint. Because I think we can all agree that from the start, he’s gotten the appropriate amount of coverage befitting the seriousness of his candidacy. Ha. I hope you all are proud of yourselves. The guy wanted to give his hotel business a boost and now we are praying that Cleveland makes it through July.”

Paul Emery News Director, me thinks you spend too much time on The Donald. You might want to follow Obama’s sound advice.

George Rebane

Re Trump’s part in America’s C19 policies – In sum, I believe we have done an excellent job responding to this pandemic, given our country’s size, mix of cultures, natural independence of reacting to government diktats, and federalism that puts the onus on developing and executing public response policies to the several states and not the federal government. This assessment gains more support when we compare our pandemic stats – rates of infection, mortality, recovery, comorbidity, infection demographics – with those of other smaller, culturally more cohesive nations. And when you add the administration’s launch of programs to procure necessary medical equipments and supplies, care facilities, and launch of an historic multi-faceted program to rapidly develop C19 vaccines, there is no doubt that this administration’s response has been correct and proper given what was known when.

Finally, NOBODY has been able to Monday-morning-quarterback a response policy that would unambiguously have been better than what President Trump and his administration have done. (The best that Bumblebrain has muttered is a list of things Trump is doing or has already executed.) All that has been raised in opposition are naked and baseless allegations of his ‘mismanaging the Covid response’, allegations that have been drilled daily into the heads of the nation’s light and never thinkers by our lamestream media outlets, and then echoed at the grass roots level by the Left’s equally attentive local lackeys.

re PaulE 1252pm - And here is Exhibit A for my 1251pm.

paul emery


Is this the sign of A+ leadership when Trump ignored the request of the Governor of Michigan and had a mass rally with no social distancing or masking?

"We anticipate that he will be descending on this state and perhaps encouraging people to come maskless," Governor Whitmer, a Democrat, told host Anderson Cooper in reference to Trump.

"This is very distressing," she said.

"I would love to see the leader of our country embrace masks and encourage people to do the right thing."

George Rebane

PaulE 134pm - Since when did Whitmer speak ex cathedra? Also see my 1251pm.

Paul Emery


My question was Is this the sign of A+ leadership when Trump ignored the request of the Governor of Michigan and had a mass rally with no social distancing or masking?

This is after recordings emerged of him stating very clearly the dangers of airborne virus transmission. This was from Feb 7

“This is deadly stuff,” he told the investigative journalist Bob Woodward.

“You just breathe the air, and that’s how it’s passed,” the president warned..

so George do you consider that A+ leadership of the Corona Virus Pandemic situation.
He does claim to be our Commander and Chief in the battle against the pandemic.

There is no requirement under the Constitution for the Senate to give a nominee the time of day, let alone a vote. It is certainly "OK". What isn't OK is for the Senate to give a nominee the runaround or worse, like they did to Kavanaugh, or what happened to Bork.

And the Borking was Joe Biden's doing. 100%.

Things are really looking grim for Trump. He's got no bounce in the polls. Updated three times daily, this map tracks the electoral vote count for the 2020 presidential election based on polling. This is what it looks like:

Biden leads in delegates based on consensus polling 281-138.
There are 138 tossup delegates.
In order to win Trump needs to win ALL the tossups plus flip 24 delegates now favoring Biden.
He's way ahead of Hillary at this stage in the election.


Comparison to Hillary at this stage. Biden is up 16 over Trump. Hillary at the same date was only up 7. Here's a link


Here's the map for you to ponder over. Wemember he has to win all the toss-ups and flip 24 blues to win.

Thank you Paul Emery.

I agree it looks bad for Trump, the man of the people. Looks almost impossible. The only consolation I have is:

1) I remember well you citing the same sources in mid-October 2016 saying Hillary has to win only 15 electoral votes to clinch it and Trump has to win all 120 of the up for grabs electoral votes.

2) Biden’s rapidly declining mental capacities have gone vertical...off the cliff. In other words, Trump is not Hillary and most certainly not a Dementia Joe.

Exit question: Will Biden say he has come down with COVID-19 to get out of the televised debates? Will he tell people to go to their phonographs to listen and learn more about his Campaign site? Ok, that’s two questions.

It looks like gloom and doom for Trump. You got his oxnards in the wringer now.

I didn't quote those polls in 2016 Bill. 270to in is new to me this year. Either way Biden is winning easily at this point with absolutely no Trump surge making a ripple. Remember he has to win all the tossups and flip over 20 delegates now blue to pull off a win. Pretty grim for your side.

Well Barry it is not my analysis it is one based on compilations of polls updated three times a day. The latest from RCP tossups shows Biden winning in all tossups by an average of 4.1. Keep in mind Trump has to win all those states plus flip 24 Blue delegates to win so Biden looks pretty good.

Florida September 22nd 48.6 47.0 Biden +1.6
Pennsylvania September 22nd 48.7 44.7 Biden +4.0
Michigan September 22nd 48.2 41.8 Biden +6.4
Wisconsin September 22nd 50.5 43.8 Biden +6.7
North Carolina September 22nd 47.3 46.5 Biden +0.8

Arizona September 22nd 49.2 44.2 Biden +5.0


BarryP "Paul. Your analysis looks more like a 2016 redux."

You are arguing with a local version of Alexa written by a stoner. I wouldn't bother.

How to use:

Paul? Could you play some folk music?
Paul? Could you show us where the Orange Man touched you?

It has a limited set of responses.

Sorry the information is so hard on you. You are quite incoherent but that's what desperation causes.

Paul Emery, local News Director for alternative partially government funded FM radio station:

I didn't quote those polls in 2016 Bill”

Then I apologize for naming the wrong source you followed in 2016. Was it 538 or something? I still haven’t glanced at the polling (besides reading the occasional polling headlines on different feeds) this time around. It’s after Labor Day so knock yourself out. Maybe I will garner some interest in October. This is your moment to shine. Will or lose, you will probably be within some margin of error when all is said and done, despite the rhetoric.

And to be fair, I usually do not open any of your links out of habit. Same with that wacko Roberta and Duh. At least I read usually half of what you actually pen, maybe less. Like a sentence or two, max. We will find our who won and who lost maybe by January of 2017.

Again, I apologize for getting saying you are using the same polling data you used in 2016. At least I got that part about you saying Hillary needs just 15 more votes to clinch it and Trump needs to pick up all 120 electoral college contested votes. Close enough for government work. 120 votes is a lot to pick up, flip. Low probability. reaches 1 in 4 chance to win or 3 in 10 chance, when I will know all is at peace in my soul

", it might be fun to set up some Trump 2020 signs and some game cameras."
WAY ahead of you.

I have the spot already picked out.


Things keep getting better and batter! Mitt. R. has received a come to Jesus moment.

None of the worst RINOS has come back?

Emery has impeachments to call for . It's just plain illegal for RBG wishes NOT to be upheld. Trump can't name her successor... Because someone said she said that.
I'm sure Emery can find that footnote law in the Constitution.


Now there are two things that are polar opposites.
Obama, and democracy.
"O" was out to burn the Constitution, and replace democracy with Marxism.
Trump has lead the fight to reverse that.
Trump has restored rights, unlike "O" who removed them at every turn.


I was watching some of the inevitable hullaballoo following the RBG death


and I think they're missing a bet here.

Those kids really need to set up a proper crazy Arab funeral procession with the coffin getting shoved around at it's head. Triple bonus points for a Shi'a Ashura Day-style head smackin' angle to the whole thing.

With a mild bon mot, Paul sez: " that's what desperation causes."

Honestly it's more a matter of planning. If crazy people start running the country in addition to the corporate/government swamp, I've got to make a few decisions. As with anybody, my planning horizon shrinks every day.

I've got a long view in terms of mass behavior and politics. Humans have done things as counterproductive and potentially evil as the Blue Mob is up to now for some time. Even with all the troubles, living in 4th C. Rome had it's own rewards in terms of an interesting time. The trick is to watch the battle from a distance.

You'd better toddle back to some polling site and Drudge old son, there's bound to be some partisan news you can cough up on the doorway.

For all you polling aficionados, here's a very informative Forbes piece with info that will throw a lot of poll prognostications into a cocked hat - 'Has The Presidential Race Just Shifted? Vegas Odds makers Think So'.

Paul Emery

Ho Hum George. You write "Critics allege mainstream polls over-sample Democrats and focus on registered voters versus likely voters, skewing the results."

Sounds like the failed ol'skewed polls" theory that predicted Romney in '12 by 8 or something like that. todd was embarrassed for supporting that theory right till the end.

Who knows though. Right now the vast majority of polling shows Biden with a solid and very steady lead it likely electoral votes.

George Rebane

PaulE 929am - Now wherever did you pick up that as something that I wrote? But thanks for the quick response from our premier poll watcher.
