Additionally, you can't claim to simply be a platform (and as such not responsible for the content of posts) if you edit, or restrict what posts users can make. Now they have accepted responsibility for the content of posts as they remove some they deem inappropriate.
I've been making that argument for awhile now. But they want to be able to control content, and still have liability protection.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I got a little curious as to how Barrett did with her Court of Appeals (7th Circuit) confirmation process. So, I went to look up the yeas and nays. She was confirmed 55-43 with 2 democrats not voting.

It was a MOSTLY party line vote, with 3 democrats voting to confirm her; Donnelly (D-IN), Manchin (D-WV) and Kaine (D-VA). Yes, the democrat's VP nominee from 2016 Tim Kaine voted to confirm her to the Court of Appeals in October 2017, just 3 years ago.

Of those 3 democrats, Manchin and Kaine are STILL in the senate today. Donnelly was replaced by a republican in 2018. Manchin voted to confirm Kavanaugh. So even with Murkowski and Collins backing away from confirming a new SCOTUS justice, it would appear the remaining republicans plus a couple potential democrats should be enough to confirm Barrett with little trouble.

NYC police union endorses Trump

Lynch said that in his 21-years as the chief of the PBA he didn’t remember a president being endorsed by the union and said, “In the NYC PBA you earn the endorsement.”

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Seen on social media;
The devil bowed her head because she knew that she'd been beat
And she laid that golden pen on the ground at Donald's feet
Donald said, "Nancy, just come on back if you ever want to try again
I done told you once you drunk old bat I'm still your PRESIDENT!"

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

So lets recap the week for the democrats;
  • The NFL team who is in Pelosi's district loses the super bowl
  • Iowa caucus debacle
  • Trump delivers an epic SOTU
  • Pelosi catches heat from moderates and independents for tearing up Trump's speech
  • Trump acquitted of both articles of impeachment
Did I miss anything?

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I'm curious. Since the Senate is going to provide the House and Secretary of State the results of the trial; does Nancy use one of her expensive pens to sign some sort of receipt? Or does she simply tear the report up?

I have some snowflake friends that reference Star Trek as model socialism. At that point I remind them that every character in Star Trek is self responsible (just like Capitalists). The people promoting socialism offer free stuff and no responsibility. They worship the elite and promote snowflakes.

Carry on Space Force!

I noted in Star Trek that San Francisco there was no homeless encampments, no pooping on the sidewalks, did they ship them off planet? Send them to live with the Romulans?
I like to point out that whenever they leave the ship, they have their weapons on them. Makes antis head explode.

Could this be what dems are up to? I'm admittedly not up to snuff with regards to constitutional law but for that sake of conversation...

1. Pelosi holds on to the articles of impeachment up until the 2020 elections.
2. Trump loses (I sincerely hope not) and we end up with a switch in the senate
3. Senate convicts former president Trump
4. He is no longer president so cannot be removed from office
5. But since he is convicted would all of his appointees to the judicial branch be removed thus opening positions for an extremely left leaning judicial branch.

Again just doomsday scenerio here but could that be a possibility?
There are currently 53 republican, 45 democrat, and 2 independents who caucus with the democrats.
Of the 53 seats currently held by republicans, 23 are up for election this cycle.
This leaves 30 republicans who are 100% safe this election.
In order to convict, it requires 2/3 majority, or 67 votes (assuming my math is correct). Which means 34 votes against would defeat a conviction.
How likely do you think it is that the republicans lose 20 seats out of the 23 they have to run?

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Article 1 passes in the house. Vote was 230 - 197 - 1 with 2 democrats voting against and 1 democrat voting present. They did show 1 republican voting for at one point, but they have changed that.

The next vote will be on Article 2, obstruction of congress.

Most likely zero. The communists are in full attack mode. They sense their time has come to finally take down the United States of America.

Newsweek Jumps the Gun on What Trump Was Doing For Thanksgiving — Gets Egg on Its Face
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/juliorosa ... e-n2557233
Newsweek ran a story asserting the commander-in-chief was spending the Thanksgiving holiday "tweeting, golfing and more" before it was revealed President Trump made an unannounced visit to U.S. military members in Afghanistan on Thanksgiving.
The author of the article deleted her tweet and sent a correction, saying "it was written before knowing about the president’s surprise visit to Afghanistan-an honest mistake."
Ms. Kwong, it's not a "honest mistake" if you say something before you know the truth. It's called a lie. Making assumptions is not journalism, not that all of you in the media practice "journalism" any more.

The President responds! LOL...
I thought Newsweek was out of business?

The Newsweek writer behind a story on President Trump's Thanksgiving plans has been fired but is pushing back on the perception that the published story -- initially leaving out that Trump was visiting troops in Afghanistan, but rather mistakenly saying he would be "tweeting" and "golfing" -- was her fault.
