Westlake Legal Group ZOFJYOxoWb5vX4pFO_lIZj3BsukrSAp3Fvd23VgtkQ8 Amy McGrath says she will take on Mitch McConnell in 2020 US Senate race r/politics

O foul descent! that I who erst contended

With Gods to sit the highest, am now constraind

Into a Beast, and mixt with bestial slime,

This essence to incarnate and imbrute,

That to the hight of Deitie aspir’d;

But what will not Ambition and Revenge

Descend to? who aspires must down as low

As high he soard, obnoxious first or last exposed

To basest things.

Attorney General William Barr recused from Epstein case over legal conflict: Report

Westlake Legal Group mscsnqfpDm_m77vR-Pyd5d8X7rJKxHhjdIlsfaTYicI Attorney General William Barr recused from Epstein case over legal conflict: Report r/politics

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) asked Barr whether he would conduct a “full and thorough investigation” into the Justice Department’s handling of Epstein’s case, in particular, the non-prosecution agreement from 2008.

“Senator, I have to recuse myself from Kirkland & Ellis matters, I am told,” Barr said at the time. “And I think Kirkland & Ellis was maybe involved in that case, so I need to sort out exactly what my role can be. I will say that if I’m confirmed I’ll make sure your questions are answered on this case.”

That is the only reason he’s not defending his fellow pedophile Epstein (I’m guessing at that, but what are the odds I’m wrong?) now; he’s already on record as recusing himself, and only because he was told that he had to.

Dems to pursue criminal contempt for William Barr, Wilbur Ross over census

Westlake Legal Group J-yGVl8in-HeTxgucLUZpomhMgVBhg_C6KNMIDZCT3w Dems to pursue criminal contempt for William Barr, Wilbur Ross over census r/politics

Being held in contempt by Congress will be an embarrassment for the Trump administration officials but it won’t lead to many tangible consequences.

The Justice Department is almost certainly not going to charge the attorney general or another cabinet secretary with a crime. In fact, DOJ has urged officials not to comply with the House Oversight and Reform Committee’s subpoenas, which seek information related to the decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The House must charge Barr and Ross with contempt, regardless of the fact the DOJ will shield them, because it’s imperative at least one chamber of Congress fight for the rule of law. Good does not always triumph. Government officials who commit crimes against America and against humanity more often than not escape punishment for their criminal acts. But to stand mute in the face of such thoroughgoing corruption makes those who remain silent accomplices to the crimes committed by the Trump administration.

Barr, Ross and the rest of the Trump Gang belong in prison. This is something we must continue to insist upon.

Trump Lied to the Supreme Court, and Four Justices Don’t Care

Westlake Legal Group lOlfXS64Ur3J0SxJ8aGyfAbwG6B7Sx1-4SWXF4Ot6xE Trump Lied to the Supreme Court, and Four Justices Don’t Care r/politics

After last week, the regression is the least of it.

The full impact of the concentration camps just came out.

At this point, you’re either pro-Nazi or anti-Nazi.

After what we saw with almost half the staff on Facebook groups cheering each other on to do ever worse things to the prisoner, with hardly a peep from the Republican establishment, there’s no longer any denial.

Last week was the time for any Republican with a shred of decency or humanity left to quit in protest. All that’s left is monsters.

Kris Kobach, who claimed misspelled names indicated voter fraud, misspells own name in Senate race registration

Westlake Legal Group F0mKp1TGutRgrQcI0Z7RSyOq9CSrPI1TY9yHDld6iSc Kris Kobach, who claimed misspelled names indicated voter fraud, misspells own name in Senate race registration r/politics

But if Juan Gonzalez accidentally typos or writes his name illegibly,

Or “Carlos Murguia.”

This is a little long, but strap in for a good time:

“How does it feel to have your papers out of order, Mr. Kobach?

Of course, restrictive voting laws like these have never been about protecting electoral integrity. They’re about keeping certain people away from the ballot box, often based on who they are — or are assumed to be. On Tuesday, one of Mr. Kobach’s witnesses, a political scientist, Jesse Richman, testified that up to 18,000 noncitizens have registered or tried to register in Kansas. When the A.C.L.U.’s lawyer asked him about his methods for analyzing the state’s list of suspended voters, Mr. Richman said that, among other things, he flagged foreign-sounding names. What about a name like “Carlos Murguia,” the lawyer asked. Would he flag that one? Yes, Mr. Richman said. He was then informed that Carlos Murguia is a federal district judge who sits in the courthouse where the trial is being held.”

The “What happened in your state last week?” Megathread, Week 27

Welcome to the ‘What happened in your state last week’ thread, where you can post any local political news stories that you find important in the comments. This is a weekly thread posted every Monday, in order to facilitate more discussion on local issues on /r/politics. Since this is intended to be a thread about local politics, top-level comments that are exclusively about national issues will not be allowed. When commenting, please include the state you’re living in, and don’t forget to link sources. Also, please actually describe what happened. “I live in X, you know what happened” isn’t helpful to users and will be removed.

If someone from your state made a news round-up that you think is insufficient, feel free to comment to that round-up with further news stories. Enjoy discussion, and review our civility guidelines before engaging with others.

Furious Home Depot shoppers say they’re boycotting the store and cutting up their cards after one of the home-improvement retailer’s founders said he’d donate some of his fortune to Trump’s reelection campaign

Westlake Legal Group ZZmhUwWZ2zCWxqtzczqU7pqRVvTzHsLAigZKDTUDSrU Furious Home Depot shoppers say they're boycotting the store and cutting up their cards after one of the home-improvement retailer's founders said he'd donate some of his fortune to Trump's reelection campaign r/politics

I haven’t been purposefully boycotting home depot, I just don’t like their store.

That said, around me every home depot has a Lowes within 10 miles of it, and there are Ace’s all over the place, do a quick search. Their hours suck though, but there are a lot of them if you look. So I shop at Lowes or Ace if I need something right away, but do most of my shopping online.

For lumber though, if you can find a real lumber yard like 84 Lumber, you will always do better on price and selection than any hardware store. Edit – Apparently the lumber yard thing is just near me, for the prices anyway. I still stand by the better selection part of that statement. I’ve bought things from 84 from their stock that Lowes couldn’t even special order for me.
