Barack Obama To Unveil U.S. Supreme Court Selection Today … Either Federal Appeals Court Judges, Sri Srinivasan or Merrick Garland
BARACK OBAMA TO HAVE ROSE GARDEN PRESSER TO ANNOUNCE TO SCOTUS NOMINEE …
Today, Barack Obama is going to announce his US Supreme Court nominee in the Rose Garden to replace the deceased Justice Antonin Scalia. It is reported that his choices will be one of the following two federal appeal court judges Sri Srinivasan or Merrick Garland. I guess neither of these two have any actual aspirations of being SCOTUS justices as the GOP has vowed not to even consider any choices until after the 2016 presidential election.
President Barack Obama was poised to announce his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday at the White House, setting the stage for a potentially ferocious political showdown with Senate Republicans who have pledged to bar anyone Obama selects.
Obama said in a statement released by the White House that he will unveil his nominee at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT) in the White House Rose Garden. He is likely to announce one of two federal appeals court judges, Sri Srinivasan or Merrick Garland, as his choice, a source familiar with the selection process told Reuters.
The Indian-born Srinivasan, 49, would be the first Asian-American and first Hindu Supreme Court justice. Garland, 63, is a long-time appellate judge and former prosecutor who Obama also considered when he filled two previous Supreme Court vacancies.
It appears that Barack Obama has made his decision for SCOTUS nominee.
What a joke, after 7 years Obama decides to do his Constitutional duty. I thought he had forgot what the US Constitution was.
Today, I will announce the person whom I believe is eminently qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.
As President, it is both my constitutional duty to nominate a Justice and one of the most important decisions that I — or any president — will make.
I’ve devoted a considerable amount of time and deliberation to this decision. I’ve consulted with legal experts and people across the political spectrum, both inside and outside government. And we’ve reached out to every member of the Senate, who each have a responsibility to do their job and take this nomination just as seriously.
Justice Dept. AG Lynch Testifies Has ‘Discussed’ Civil Legal Action Against Climate Change Deniers … But AG Lynch Indicates DOJ Not Required to Charge Hillary Clinton
IMAGINE THAT … OBAMA’S AG LOOKING TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS BUT MUMS THE WORD ON HILLARY CLINTON.
See what happens when you on Obama’s enemies list and when you are not.
The Blaze reports that Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies and climate change deniers. Really, is this how ignorant the debate has become with the climate change charletons that they are comparing tobacco dangers to fossil fuels and climate change? Are you kidding? Wait a minute, which one is the scheme? Sorry, it is far from settled science that climate change is man made and anything could be done to change climate change. Note to climate change wackos, its the sun stupid. The climate has been changing since the birth of the planet, with or without man. Imagine that?
Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During Lynch’s testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies showing the dangers of using tobacco and companies within the fossil fuel industry denying studies allegedly showing the threat of carbon emissions.
Contract that tough talk with AG Lynch’s position as to the possibility of indicting Hillary Clinton for her private server/email crimes and risking US national security. If you are a Democrat criminal and the FBI recommends charges against you, then AG Lynch says that the DOJ is not required to prosecute you. Attorney General Lynch indicates DOJ not required to charge Hillary Clinton if the FBI recommends charges. Imagine that.
The Department of Justice would not be required to have to prosecute Hillary Clinton even if the FBI were to recommend charges be filed against her for the use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has indicated.
The Washington Examiner reports that the nation’s top law enforcer — answering a question from Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, as to whether her agency would be “required” to pursue criminal charges against Clinton — responded:
“It would not be an operation of law, it would be an operation of procedures,” Lynch said.
As well, according to Lynch, a decision to pursue a criminal case would be “done in conjunction with the agents” involved in the probe, and would “not something that we would want to cut them out of the process.”
RUT-ROH … Justice Department Grants Immunity to State Dept Staffer Bryan Pagliano Who Set Up Clinton Email Server
THE DEMOCRAT POLITICAL MACHINE’S WHEELS ARE ABOUT TO FALL OFF AS FORMER STATE DEPT STAFFER GETS IMMUNITY IN CLINTON EMAIL SERVER SCANDAL …
Oh my, forget about all the nonsense you hear about the Republican party and the establishment vs. Trump, get a load of what is happening for the Democrats and their presumptive nominee. The WAPO is reporting that the Justice Department has granted immunity to former State Department staffer Bryan Pagliano, the individual who set up the private email server for Hillary Clinton. The gang from Scooby Do has the following to say … “ZOINKS, JEEPERS!!!” You will remember Bryan Pagliano, he is the former tech guy who set up Hillary’s servers who previously took the 5th. Because we all know that innocent people and one’s with nothing to hide do such things.
Imagine that, all this time Hillary Clinton was right about that vast right wing conspiracy that was out to get her. NOT! The Barack Obama DOJ granted immunity to Hillary’s ex email tech who previously took the Fifth. Welcome aboard to the vast right wing conspiracy, Barack Obama. Just how messy is this going to get for Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party?
The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official.
The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.
As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents are likely to want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how it was set up, and whether any of the participants knew they were sending classified information in emails, current and former officials said.
Legal Insurrection – Hillary email scandal moves into flip flip flip phase.
As I said earlier, Bernie Sanders just needs to hang on long enough, Bernie playing to box out other candidates after Hillary indicted.
Until Huma flips. Then it’s all over.
The Comedian in Chief strikes again … WHAT A SICK, SICK, SOB.
What a small, small man you are. So Barack Hussein Obama can’t seem to find the time or the class to attend the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral, but he can find the time to joke about the justice’s untimely death. Obama did so on February 22, 2016, as he delivered remarks to the National Governors Association at the White House. What’s worse, not only did this poor excuse for a president and human make the sick and pathetic joke, there were those in the room that laughed. REALLY? So this is what is funny to Obama. What a sick individual this man truly is. Never have we had such a divisive president hold the office. You will be judged one day Mr. President, and you will have a lot of explaining.
Is it any wonder why this country is as divided as it is with a president who would make such a joke? And you wonder Barack why you will never nominate a justice SCOTUS.
Just curious, what do you think the reaction would be if a Democrat president passed away in office whose name sounds like Barry Soetoro and a Republican leader made a joke about the succession of power? Yeah, that’s what I thought it would be.
The most classless president ever to hold the Office … Thanks America!
OK GOP, IF THERE WAS EVER A REASON TO NOW BLACK ANY OBAMA SCOTUS NOMINEE … YOU WERE JUST PROVIDED THE REASON.
Barack Obama, what a small, little man … The White House has announced that Barack Obama will not attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Weasel Zippers could not have stated it any better. REALLY? what kind of a skeevy and divisive SOB must you be to be a president of the United States and not attend a SCOTUS’ funeral, especially when you plan on putting forth a judicial nominee to replaced the deceased Scalia? There is a reason why Obama is considered the most decisive president ever. He has more than earned the title. I guess Jon Lovitz was correct.
President Barack Obama is preparing for a fierce battle with the Senate over the Supreme Court vacancy, but he’s not planning to attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral — a decision that puzzled even some of his allies and incensed conservative media.
“If we want to reduce partisanship, we can start by honoring great public servants who we disagree with,” Obama’s former “car czar” Steven Rattner tweeted with a link to a headline about Obama skipping the funeral.
Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted out his own site’s article that dismissed the decision as disappointingly expected: “Obama To SKIP Scalia Funeral, Here’s A List Of OTHER Funerals He Was Too Busy To Attend.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest revealed the president’s plans during the daily briefing, saying Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, who share Scalia’s Catholic faith, will be at the services instead.
What a sick little man who would let his political ideology get in the way of showing the respect that he should in one’s death. Is it any wonder why so many do not consider this man their president. Classless, simply classless.

Bill Clinton Downplays Barack Obama As First Black President: “We Are All Mixed Race People” (VIDEO) … “You Don’t have a President [Obama] who’s a Change-Maker”
C’mon, we all know that Bill Clinton was the first black president …
Hmm, is Bill Clinton trying to lose the back vote for Hillary? While campaigning in Tennessee Bill Clinton seemed to downplay that Barack Obama was the first black president when he said that unless you are “100 percent, 100 percent from sub-Saharan Africa, we are all mixed race people.” It begs the question that I have wondered for a long, long time. Does Bill Clinton really want Hillary Clinton to be president and force him to be the first, First Man?
Playing off Congressman Steve Cohen’s introduction that claimed Bill Clinton was just a “stand-in for the first black president,” Clinton told an audience in Memphis, “You know what we learned from the human genome?
“We learned that unless your ancestors — everyone of you — are 100 percent, 100 percent from sub-Saharan Africa, we are all mixed race people.”
Hmm, Hasn’t Hillary Clinton been running on the mantra that she we be a third term of Barack Obama? I guess Bubba didn’t get that memo from Hillary’s private email server.
Hundreds packed into the Whitehaven High School gymnasium Thursday to hear former President Bill Clinton stump for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Bill Clinton, a giant state flag behind him, spoke largely on issues that plague Memphis, including high unemployment, violent crime and poverty, and said Hillary would help America “grow together.”
“Without an economy that works for everybody, we can’t be one America, and we can’t go forward together,” Clinton said.
But in talking about the struggles of middle- and lower-class America, Clinton said the country’s financial system is “rigged.”
“Yeah, it’s rigged, because you don’t have a president who’s a change-maker, who, with a Congress who will work with him. But the president has done a better job than he has gotten credit for.”
Chris Christie & Carly Fiorina Quit 2016 Presidential Race After Poor Showing in New Hampshire Primary
AND THEN THERE WERE SIX FOR THE GOP …
Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the Republican presidential race after a very poor showing in the New Hampshire primaries. Fiorina finished 7th with 4% of the vote and Christie finished 6th with about 7.5% of the vote. Carly Fiorina had a short and meteoric rise as she performed strong at times during the debates, but it just never translated to a rise in the polls. With regards to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to be honest, his run for the GOP presidential nomination was over before it began. Pundits pondered why Christie’s campaign never got traction and why even after he knee-capped establishment darling Marco Rubio showing him to be robitoc, Christie gained nada in the polls. Really, is it that hard to understand? With all due respect to Christie, his presidential run ended when he decided to hug Barack Obama during the president’s photo-op trip to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy and what looked like a date between Obama and Christie on the boardwalk at the Jersey shore. Sorry Chris, you were toast after that and no Republican was ever going to for get that image. We had said back in 2013 for Christie to not waste his time. I guess he should have listened.
Really Gov. Christie, did you ever thing the GOP base would ever forget these images?
Chris Christie dropped out of the race for president on Wednesday afternoon, two hours after a rival candidate quit.
Carly Fiorina, one of only two women in the U.S. presidential race, left her quixotic pursuit of the White House on Wednesday after a seventh-place New Hampshire primary finish in a field of eight candidates.
And Christie, the governor of New Jersey, soon followed suit after rumors of his campaign’s demise swirled all day.
Spokeswoman Samantha Smith confirmed the news to the Associated Press, saying that Christie broke the news of his decision to staff at his campaign headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, late in the afternoon.
Christie is also calling donors and supporters to thank them for staying the course as his poll numbers gasped for air.
Before leaving the race Carly Fiorina blasted Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and her minions for their reprehensible comments regarding feminism and threats of going to hell to women who dared not support Clinton.
Fiorina took one last shot at Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, kicking her while she was down after a stunning defeat in New Hampshire.
‘To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you,’ Fiorina wrote. ‘Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism.’
BIG BLOW TO BARACK OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE …
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations that is part of his global warming climate change initiative. 27 states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab” and that the regulations would greatly increase energy costs and put some of their industries out of business. Appellate arguments are set to begin June 2, 2016. Thankfully, the SCOTUS put a hold on anything going forward as Powerline opines, “Obama’s EPA was betting that the slow legal process would mean that they’d have a lot of things in place, and many utilities would have complied with the EPA’s dictates, before the law was settled at the Supreme Court.”
A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.
In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.
The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”
By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.
The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.
The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted impacts of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions at existing power plants by about one-third by 2030.
“We disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the Clean Power Plan while litigation proceeds,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.Earnest said the administration’s plan is based on a strong legal and technical foundation, and gives the states time to develop cost-effective plans to reduce emissions. He also said the administration will continue to “take aggressive steps to make forward progress to reduce carbon emissions.”
