Wearing PPE, Wisconsin Speaker Claims It’s ‘Incredibly Safe To Go Out’ To Vote

Clad in gloves, a mask and full-length gown, Wisconsin Speaker Robin Vos assured voters that it is “incredibly safe to go out” on Election Day despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Vos is one of the main reasons the in-person election went ahead Tuesday, as he and his fellow Republicans fought both delaying the election and Democrats’ attempts to provide voters with more mail-in options. “Actually there is less exposure here than you would get if you went to the grocery store or Walmart,” Vos added ...

U.S. Supreme Court sides with GOP on Wisconsin election, apparently rewrites state election law

Wisconsin's local elections and presidential primaries will likely proceed on Tuesday after the conservative majority on the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down an executive order Monday from Gov. Tony Evers (D) to delay the election to June 9 due to the coronavirus outbreak. There are open questions about how many polling places will be open and how many people will be able to vote by absentee ballot. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Monday night that Wisconsin voters must hand-deliver t...

Wisconsin Republicans' deadly power grab

Monday night, there was a brief but furious political struggle over the Wisconsin election planned for Tuesday. Democratic Governor Tony Evers ordered that the election be delayed until June 9, so as to allow time for the novel coronavirus pandemic to pass, and so the state could set up universal vote-by-mail systems. Several other states have already taken similar steps.Right-wing Republican justices, who control the state Supreme Court by a 4-2 margin, including one of whom faces a liberal cha...

Tarotscopes That Slay: New moon in Aries

I am writing this to you from my at-home sanctuary that my husband and I lovingly call the “spirit room”. It’s just the second bedroom in our tiny two-bedroom Los Angeles bungalow but it’s also a vortex for healing and love. I am gazing out the window at the bougainvillea in full bloom, creeping along the dark green fence that separates me from my neighbor. If I lean a little to the left I can see the giant cactus that I planted from a trimming my friend Michelle gave me years ago. The sky is a...

GOP Continues To Have Field Day With Schumer Comments, Threatens Censure

Though Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) admitted that his comments about Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch didn’t come out like he intended, some Senate Republicans are still not satisfied. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution Thursday to censure Schumer, cosigned by 14 other Republican senators. In it, he cited Alexander Hamilton and statistics about threats to the judiciary, urging his colleagues to censure Schumer “in the strongest possible terms...

Schumer Softens Comments Amid Republicans’ Sustained SCOTUS Outrage

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) softened his comments about Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh Thursday amid a sustained howl of outrage from Republicans. “I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language,” Schumer said from the Senate floor. “I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat.

Supreme Court Poised to Overturn 38 State Constitutional Amendments on Church-State Separation

Religious conservatives asked the Supreme Court Wednesday to overturn 38 state constitutional amendments and require taxpayers to fund religious schools.You read that right. The case, Espinoza v. Montana Dept. of Revenue isn’t about whether a state may fund religious schools through a school choice, voucher, or similar program. It’s about whether it must.And the conservatives might just win.At issue in the case, probably the most significant church-state case on the 2019-20 docket, is Montana’s ...

Commemorative 2020 election chess set lacks two important pieces

You can own a tasteful, beautiful chess set commemorating the forthcoming 2020 presidential election. On one side – red and blue, which allows either party to play as white or black — you have Trump as king, Pence as queen (nice), Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts as bishops, party leaders Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy as knights, and President G.W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney as rooks. On the other side, the rooks are President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, the knights...

Trying to Garden Without Lower Back Pain

Gardening season has begun here in Maryland and it took no time at all for me to hurt my lower back doing what for me is the riskiest gardening move of all – bending over. So my first question for readers is – have you found a way to avoid bending over? When in Pain, What to Do? My typical pattern is to overdo, spend a few days of pain not gardening at all, finally giving in to the itch to bend over and dig or pick stuff up and re-injuring my back, in a frustrating cycle. This time, I decided t...

Gorka Tells Reporter To ‘Go Outside And Lick A Metal Street Lamp’

Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka earned himself a spot in the reporter response Hall of Fame with an absolute zinger to the Daily Beast’s request for comment Thursday: “go outside and lick a metal street lamp.” The weather was in the teens in Washington D.C. when Gorka delivered his devastating literary triumph. The story for which the Daily Beast sought comment is less deserving of praise: Gorka is peddling a conspiracy theory forged in the fires of QAnon that Supreme Court Justice Ru...

18 Movies Directed By Women in 2018 You Should Watch

At the beginning of 2018, Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig became only the fifth woman in history to be nominated for a Best Director award at the Oscars. “That’s one hand!” she enumerated to USA Today following her indoctrination into the sadly small mile-high club. It’s a club that unfortunately looks to remain small as most female directors remain out of the awards conversation and new reports emerge that female filmmakers saw their numbers shrink in 2018. But before you write off 2018 as a b...

Political analyst John Dadian talks confirmation

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego political analyst John Dadian weighed in Friday morning on the Senate's 51-49 vote to send Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh into the final stages of his potential confirmation. Kavanaugh now must only secure a majority in a confirmation vote, which could occur as soon as Saturday, experts predict. In case of a tie, the deciding vote would come from Vice President Mike Pence. Dadian said having such a tight vote for a Supreme Court nominee is unprecedented. "...
