Calls for AG Barr’s Impeachment Intensify After ‘Lunatic Authoritarian’ Federalist Society Speech

Westlake Legal Group hNH9MC5-ANbMVDlh8YNBQi50ekBC5UnFT7JPHwZz2fA Calls for AG Barr’s Impeachment Intensify After ‘Lunatic Authoritarian’ Federalist Society Speech r/politics

Yeah, the whole speech (and the fact that it was met with several standing ovations by the Federalist Society, which is totally not a partisan organization), is rather frightening. Seriously, read some of this shit:

In any age, the so-called progressives treat politics as their religion. Their holy mission is to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection. Whatever means they use are therefore justified because, by definition, they are a virtuous people pursing a deific end. They are willing to use any means necessary to gain momentary advantage in achieving their end, regardless of collateral consequences and the systemic implications. They never ask whether the actions they take could be justified as a general rule of conduct, equally applicable to all sides.

Conservatives, on the other hand, do not seek an earthly paradise. We are interested in preserving over the long run the proper balance of freedom and order necessary for healthy development of natural civil society and individual human flourishing. This means that we naturally test the propriety and wisdom of action under a “rule of law” standard. The essence of this standard is to ask what the overall impact on society over the long run if the action we are taking, or principle we are applying, in a given circumstance was universalized – that is, would it be good for society over the long haul if this was done in all like circumstances?

For these reasons, conservatives tend to have more scruple over their political tactics and rarely feel that the ends justify the means. And this is as it should be, but there is no getting around the fact that this puts conservatives at a disadvantage when facing progressive holy far, especially when doing so under the weight of a hyper-partisan media.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever been gaslit this hard before.

Discussion Thread: Louisiana Gubernatorial Election | November 16th 2019

Westlake Legal Group gAYzZXRMgQyfvWLcKs73e0-11wOfB3GA3icNfH1-QMQ Discussion Thread: Louisiana Gubernatorial Election | November 16th 2019 r/politics

For a partial list of all elections happening in Louisiana today, including ballot measures and state executive elections, click here. There are 175 candidate races and 123 propositions on ballots across the state.

Gubernatorial Election

Incumbent Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) and businessman Eddie Rispone (R) advanced from a primary election for governor of Louisiana on October 12, 2019. The general election is November 16. Edwards is the only Democratic governor in the Deep South, and he is the only Democrat holding statewide office in Louisiana. He defeated U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R) in 2015 and succeeded Bobby Jindal (R) in the governor’s office, breaking a Republican trifecta in the state.

Edwards has said that Louisiana went from having a budget deficit to a budget surplus during his tenure. He has emphasized increasing funding for K-12 schools, raising teacher pay, and expanding Medicaid in the state as other accomplishments of his administration. He says Rispone would make cuts to healthcare and education if elected governor and has criticized Rispone’s business record.

Rispone describes himself as a conservative outsider and job creator, pointing to his background as a businessman. He highlights his support for President Donald Trump (R), who dually endorsed him and Ralph Abraham (R) in the primary election. Rispone has characterized Edwards as a “liberal, trial lawyer, tax-and-spend career politician” and has criticized Edwards’ record on the economy, public safety, immigration, and healthcare.

The gubernatorial election coincides with elections for the state Senate and state House, meaning that all three trifecta components are on the ballot. Republicans maintained their majorities in the state House and Senate following the October 12 elections. Democrats would need to retain the governor’s mansion to maintain a divided government, while Republicans would need to win the gubernatorial election to gain a trifecta.

State Senate

Elections for all 39 seats in the Louisiana State Senate are taking place in 2019. The primary was on October 12, 2019, and the general election is on November 16. The filing deadline for candidates was August 8, 2019.

To view the list of candidates, click here.

State House of Representatives

Heading into the November 16, 2019, general election, Republicans are seven seats short of a 70-seat supermajority in the Louisiana House of Representatives. Twenty-four seats are up for general election.

Party control of eight House seats will be decided in the general election. Republican candidates need to win all seven races in which they are facing a Democratic or independent candidate in order to win a veto-proof House majority; Democratic or independent candidates need to win at least one of those races to prevent that from happening. Heading into the election, five of those seats are held by Republicans, one, District 50, is held by a Democrat, and one, District 62, is held by an independent. The eighth race in which party control will be decided is between a Democrat and an independent in District 21. The other 16 races are between two candidates from the same party.

“This Is the Way Gangsters Operate”: A Hero Is Born as Yovanovitch Gives Voice to Widespread Rage at State

Westlake Legal Group EcD6xW4BhpTI6zOmfHG9rRCMBb0As9j9Dkp1EwEyS0A "This Is the Way Gangsters Operate": A Hero Is Born as Yovanovitch Gives Voice to Widespread Rage at State r/politics

My heart broke when she was asked how this has impacted her family and she struggled just to say “I’d rather not get into that”. Her family is obviously suffering, but she doesn’t believe it’s materially relevant and doesn’t want to make her private life at issue. She was on the verge of crying… but didn’t. So much professionalism and strength.

Edit: words

Edit 2: To clarify, her personally feeling intimidated or threatened is absolutely relevant as a witness. She is correctly drawing a line between her own feelings and her family’s because they are not witnesses testifying.

Edit 3: watch your step below, so as not to step in troll shit.
