Hawley pushes for censure of Democratic leader Schumer after Supreme Court comments

Hawley pushes for censure of Democratic leader Schumer after Supreme Court comments | 05 March 2020 | Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley introduced a resolution Thursday to censure Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after the New York Democrat warned two Supreme Court Justices they would "pay the price" if they voted against abortion rights in a major case pending before the court.

Censure serves as an official condemnation of a lawmaker, but it would not remove Schumer from office. Schumer referred by name Wednesday to Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- the two justices the Senate has confirmed since President Donald Trump took office -- while speaking at an abortion rights rally outside the Supreme Court.

Don't Depend on FEMA to Save Us From Global-Warming's Armageddon

Don't Depend on FEMA to Save Us From Global-Warming's Armageddon By Barbara G. Ellis, Ph.D. | 28 Feb 2020 | ...[A]s is usual in decades of major natural disasters in the U.S., the Armed Services' tradition has been to be the first responder: Instant action first and fill out bureaucratic paperwork later. That changed in 1988 with two klinkers in the revised Disaster Relief Act of 1988. One required a "FEMA mission assignment letter" prior to the responding to a disaster. It was as if a fire department had to fill out paperwork before racing into a burning building. Without a letter, FEMA wouldn't have to reimburse DOD for its services. The second klinker was the DOD 10-day duration rule, an extension requiring a "request for...resources" from a governor. In other words, if the Services rushed to Puerto Rico after the first tremor without that FEMA letter, the American taxpayer would pay twice for the same disaster. But by waiting for a letter, the dead, injured, property and utility destruction probably would have been more than twice its current estimates.

Trump, at Fox News Town Hall, suggests Biden isn't competent: 'There's something going on there' | 05 March 2020 | President Trump, speaking at a Fox News Town Hall in Joe Biden's hometown of Scranton, Pa., on Thursday evening, openly suggested that the new Democratic front-runner's repeated gaffes could be a sign of a competency issue -- honing a line of attack that Republicans are expected to repeatedly deploy if Biden becomes his party's nominee. Trump also wasted little time in criticizing ex-rival Elizabeth Warren's decision to drop out of the race only after Super Tuesday, saying she may have sabotaged Bernie Sanders' struggling presidential bid by siphoning the progressive vote. The setting was more casual and conversational than Trump's boisterous rallies, and afforded the commander-in-chief an opportunity to connect directly with voters on camera.

Elizabeth Warren drops out of 2020 presidential race
