Susan Collins says she had no idea Brett Kavanaugh was so anti-choice

Published

on

After being shredded online Monday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was trying to clean up her vote to support anti-choice justice Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Collins, who has long claimed to be pro-choice, said that she believed Kavanaugh when he lied to her saying that he would uphold all legal precedent for abortion cases.

The Supreme Court announced Monday that it would strike down the Louisiana law that required abortion physicians to have hospital admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts said that he must follow the precedent and strike down the law because a similar Texas law was also struck down.

Kavanaugh, however, voted for the Louisiana law to be upheld, flying in the face of his promise to Collins.

In a statement Monday afternoon, Collins claimed, “Kavanaugh gave no indication in his dissenting opinion that he supports overturning Roe.” It ignores the “precedent” of abortion cases other than Roe that Kavanaugh promised her that he would uphold.

Women’s rights group tried to tell Collins that Kavanaugh would be an anti-choice judge, but she refused to believe them. She’s now in the race for her political life for her votes being so far outside the mainstream of Maine voters. Kavanaugh isn’t the only anti-choice judge she’s supported. By June 2016, she’d voted to confirm 32 others.

Here is Ralston's thread on the Fourth of July message:

Trump has gone from ‘merely losing’ to ‘flailing’ in one month as he faces a November election wipeout: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump's campaign is in freefall — and that, despite there still being hypothetical ways former Vice President Joe Biden could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the president and his party are in dire straits.

"As recently as one month ago, Donald Trump was merely losing," reported David Siders. "Now he is flailing, trudging into the Independence Day weekend at the nadir of his presidency, trailing by double digits in recent polls and in danger of dragging the Republican Senate down with him."

Trump’s presidency has accelerated the predicted collapse of the Republican Party: columnist

Published

Citing the work of a University of a Washington political scientist, the Washington Post's Dana Milbank said Donald Trump and his racist rhetoric has accelerated the decline of the Republican party in a country that is seeing major demographic changes and because white voters are increasingly turned off by it.

As Milbank wrote, four years ago Christopher Parker, who is Black, predicted a Trump candidacy would "do more to advance racial understanding than the election of Barack Obama.”
