Pittsburgh Judge 'Very Much In The Mix' For Supreme Court Nomination

Collins speaks at the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce's Quarterly Business Breakfast in Rockport Maine U.S

Prepare for warnings by Senate Democrats that the new nominee will not be sufficiently "independent", as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and others said past year of now Justice Neil Gorsuch. The mother of seven children, including two from Haiti and one with special needs, she offers the imagery Trump craves.

Trump said while running for president that he would nominate "pro-life" justices to the Court, but it's not exactly clear how pro-life they have to be.

The president has said he will not be asking possible nominees, whom he has already started interviewing, whether they would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Conservatives - and some liberals - objected to what they said was a "religious test" being applied to torpedo a judicial nominee.

Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, said she did not think picking a woman was "the top concern" of Trump, stressing judicial philosophy and experience.

What the president's travel order does is allow travel to the USA from Muslim countries (Saudi Arabia, Egypt and United Arab Emirates) that had sent terrorist assassins to the United States and where he had business interests, but ban travel from Muslim countries that had not sent terrorists and where he had no commercial ties.

On labor relations and arbitration, voting rights, consumer interests and antitrust matters, Kennedy was a reliable ally of power and money.

FIBA World Cup qualifying game turns into brawl
The action for which everyone actually turned up to watch did continue, briefly, with the game being played 5 v 3. From there, things get insane , with benches clearing and all-out chaos. "Chris certainly is shaken up".

DeMarcus Cousins to join Golden State Warriors
What the Spurs do from here on out is anyone's guess, but they are handling the end of the Leonard situation with aplomb. With James locked in for four years, and Leonard is a free agent in 2019 the desperation for the Lakers is gone.

Thunder's Paul George decides to become free agent
The season didn't go as planned, however, as Anthony underachieved and Westbrook had to carry the team on his back for many games. George, a native of Southern California, and LeBron James are the focus of the Lakers free agent recruiting efforts.

More than 6 in 10 voters - 63% - agree with the landmark Supreme Court decision on abortion, while 31% disagree.

Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority in the Senate, and it's even closer because of the absence of ailing Sen. He wants someone with the right temperament. As soon as he appoints his justice, he will proclaim abortion finished and that will suffice. That is to say, the legal war will continue, with some encouragement to the handful of Arkansas legislators whose reason for existence is to make it a crime for women to get an abortion.

This coup against Kavanuagh reportedly includes opposition research: The Washington Post's Robert Costa tweeted that sources were circling an excerpt from David Brock's book Blinded by the Right, in which the contender called liberal empress Hillary Clinton "a bitch". The current list also has zero known pro-choice Republicans. He had no problem with homosexuality or gay marriage.

Joan Larsen (Pritzker '93) and Diane Sykes (Medill '80) are included on the main list of potential Supreme Court picks. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). The number of abortion clinics in the state dropped by half. Then women who could afford it could visit a state where abortion was legal and only the poor would have to endure unwanted pregnancies. Just 36 percent of Republicans are in favor of Roe v. Wade, while 58 percent oppose it.

Remember that, like Trumpism, Republicanism is a shifting target. "But we do have a majority in the Senate on the two key issues that we think will define the fight: We do have a majority in the Senate that think Roe v Wade should not be overturned". The 1973 ruling legalized abortion across America. That creates a unique problem for Republicans, and an unexpected opportunity for Democrats. The three face re-election in November in states that Trump won in the 2016 presidential election.

I view my job in these parlous times as tamping down both unreasoning fears and expectations.
