Schwarzenegger has the distinction of being an old school Nixon Republican who managed to stay a Nixon Republican. Which in comparison to the Republican mainstream puts him only slightly to the right of Bernie Sanders. It's honestly kind of surprising that he hasn't done a reverse-Reagan and switched to the Dems and say 'I didn't leave the Republicans, the Republicans left me.'

Arkansas is planning a slew of executions by the end of the month:

 

https://www.yahoo.com/news/arkansas-execution-plan-major-test-drug-secrecy-measures-182743848.html

 

Quote:

 LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — If Arkansas succeeds in executing multiple inmates by the end of the month, despite several setbacks in court, it will show that states have found an effective way of repelling some legal challenges that have thwarted or delayed executions in recent years.

 

Arkansas and at least a dozen other states with the death penalty have been keeping secret how and where they are getting the lethal drugs for their death chambers — information that had long been publicly available.

 

The secrecy has helped blunt legal challenges over the lethal injection drugs, which states have had trouble obtaining in recent years because manufacturers don't want their drugs used in executions.

 

In recent rulings, state and federal courts across the country have upheld the legality of the new secrecy laws, despite opponents' complaints.

 

"These secrecy statutes are extremely effective at preventing challenges to execution procedures," said Megan McCracken, an attorney at the University of California at Berkeley Law School's Death Penalty Clinic.

Alex Jones' ex-wife is suing him for custody of their kids. Her argument is that Jones' on-air persona is the real him. His counterargument, which he'll be asserting in a court of law, is that his entire act is bullshit for the rubes. Link goes to the local Austin, Texas newspaper covering the story on the ground.

BuzzFeed is reporting (I know, I know) that Jason Chaffetz won't be running for re-election next year - https://www.buzzfeed.com/alexislevinson/utah-congressman-jason-chaffetz-will-not-seek-re-election?utm_term=.dy7NjXbGk#.dqgglkyL1

It's everywhere now. I'm suppressing the urge to read something into this.
post #3506 of 3785

Saw what I thought was some pretty good analysis/speculation on the Chaffetz decision:

 

He's likely trying to run for governor of Utah in 2020 and maybe President in 2024.

 

He was actually hoping for a Hillary win, because then he could have spent the next 2-3 years hounding her in the House and be "the guy that held HIllary Clinton accountable" when he started running for other offices.

 

Instead, he's stuck as the head of the House Oversight Committee under a GOP President that DESPERATELY needs oversight, but the GOP doesn't want to provide it.  So he's jumping ship so he doesn't get blasted with "do your job" for the next four years since that narrative was already starting to stick to him.

 

tl;dr - Staying where he was was only likely to hurt his long-term political prospects, not help them, so he's outta there.

post #3507 of 3785

Chaffetz is now saying he may not stay for his full term. That's . . . odd.

I surely can't be the only one hoping that it's with a pre-op Russian transsexual honeypot, can I?

 

I mean, the affair alone probably means his career is finito (No governorship for you in Utah, buddy!), but still...a little more humiliation is more than warranted in this case.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865678299/The-calculus-behind-Jason-Chaffetzs-sudden-decision-to-walk-away.html?pg=all

 

In sum, he may be angling to get a well paying gig at Fox News in preparation for the Governor's race in 2020. Also he foresees the GOP getting a shellacking in the Midterms, which would diminish his chances.

Say what you will about Texas (there's a lot to say), but they had avoided the shitty road of a "papers, please" law aimed at Latinos for a very long time while California Republicans set themselves on fire in the 90s and Arizona enacted its own legislation years later.  That's about to change:

 

https://www.yahoo.com/news/texas-bill-punish-police-not-164902911.html

 

Quote:

Donald Trump’s plan to punish so-called sanctuary cities was blocked in court this week, but the concept is enjoying more success at state level, where Texas is poised to enact a law forcing local police to act as federal immigration enforcers.

 

A bill passed the Texas state house shortly before 3am on Thursday, after 16 often heated hours of debate amid pro-immigrant demonstrations outside the capitol building in Austin. Democrats in the Republican-dominated Texas legislature proposed a series of amendments in a futile effort to stall and weaken the bill, a version of which was already advanced by the senate.

 

It puts sheriffs and other police chiefs at risk of criminal charges and other serious sanctions if they do not help the federal government enforce immigration laws by complying with requests to detain immigrants. There are also civil fines for non-cooperation by local entities including campus police departments.

 

A Democratic state representative, Victoria Neave, began a four-day hunger strike on Sunday in protest at the bill. Another, Mary Gonzalez, wept on Wednesday as she talked in the state house about being a sexual assault survivor and expressed her fear that the law would help criminals. A third, Ana Hernandez, gave an emotional speech about her life before she became a US citizen.

 

Doing Trump's work for him in a state where he's not even that popular.  No safe havens here either:

 

Quote:

Republican hearts were not softened: they strengthened the language in the bill to allow law enforcement to ask the immigration status of anyone who is merely detained – for example, during a traffic stop – as well as arrested. They also refused to pass amendments calling for exemptions for young children at school or people in domestic violence shelters.

 

Rafael Anchia, a Democratic state representative, described it on Twitter as a “papers please” measure reminiscent of Arizona’s hardline and highly controversial SB1070, passed in 2010.

 

The two Texas chambers will have to agree on a final version before the Republican governor, Greg Abbott, can sign it into law.

 

Remember when Texas Republicans said they needed their anti-trans bathroom bill to "protect women?"  I do.  Targeting Latino women at domestic violence shelters to the point where they're scared to go doesn't "protect women," Republicans.  But they already knew that.

Eight Yale graduate teachers are protesting the university with a hunger strike over its refusal to negotiate with the teachers' union.  Republican students responded by taunting the teachers with a barbecue:

Earlier this week, eight Yale graduate teachers began a hunger strike to protest the university’s refusal to bargain with their union. Yale’s College Republicans responded by taunting the hunger strikers with smoked meat.

Representatives from the Yale Republicans refused to comment to a reporter from the New Haven Register, which was the first to report this story, before that reporter was removed from the site of the barbecue by campus police.

 

The underlying dispute between the university and the union involves some fairly novel questions involving how graduate employee unions should be organized. Last August, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recognized that graduate teaching and research assistants may organize and collectively bargain under a federal law protecting unions.

Heritage voted out Jim DeMint who was president and CEO:

 

http://www.heritage.org/article/statement-the-chairman-heritages-board-trustees?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=thf-tw

 

Quote:

The Heritage Foundation’s Board of Trustees, by a unanimous vote, has asked for and received the resignation of Jim DeMint as president and CEO of the organization. The Board elected Heritage Founder Ed Feulner as president and CEO while we conduct a thorough search for his successor.

 

After a comprehensive and independent review of the entire Heritage organization, the Board determined there were significant and worsening management issues that led to a breakdown of internal communications and cooperation. While the organization has seen many successes, Jim DeMint and a handful of his closest advisers failed to resolve these problems.

 

This was a difficult and necessary decision for the Board to take. As trustees, we have governance and oversight responsibilities for this organization and our 500,000 members.  We were compelled to take action.

 

Heritage has never been about one individual, but rather the power of conservative ideas. Heritage is bigger than any one person.

 

A lot of conservatives are freaking out about it, and with good reason:

 

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/05/the-fight-for-control-of-the-heritage-foundation/525033/

 

Quote:

The drama over the removal of the president of the Heritage Foundation, Jim DeMint, is partly classic Washington power politics. But it also reflects tensions over the organization’s relationship with the Trump administration and with Trumpist ideology.

 

DeMint, the former South Carolina senator who has led the conservative institution since 2013, was ousted on Tuesday after a meeting of Heritage’s board, which voted unanimously to remove him. News of DeMint’s likely imminent departure was first reported by Politico last week.

 

In a statement released after a 4:30 p.m. staff meeting presided over by former president Ed Feulner, board chairman Thomas A. Saunders offered a starkly critical assessment of DeMint’s tenure.

 

Yeah, that statement was pretty cold.

 

So, what happened?

 

Quote:

The driving force behind DeMint’s ouster, according to multiple sources close to the organization, was Mike Needham, the CEO of Heritage Action for America, the organization’s political arm. Needham, these sources say, made a power play to push DeMint out, and is appealing to both pro- and anti-Trump elements to accomplish it.

 

"Needham has been laying the groundwork for this for two years," said a source close to Heritage. "He's been badmouthing DeMint to board members for a long time. He's got his sights set on taking over the whole thing eventually." According to a senior Republican congressional aide, Needham has been “trashing” DeMint to board members and saying that people in the White House and Congress prefer to deal with him rather than DeMint.

 

Multiple people close to the situation called DeMint's ouster a "coup," and said the driving force behind it was not philosophical but old-fashioned ambition and power politics. "This is an old-as-time story," said one source.

 

But, you just knew Trump's magic touch would have something to do with this:

 

Quote:

But nowadays, it’s difficult for a conflict like this on the right to unfold outside the context of ideological friction over Donald Trump and his nationalist agenda. Several people familiar with Needham's jockeying said he has successfully exploited the growing philosophical tensions on the American right—and, specifically, on the board of Heritage—to get his way.

 

To the Trump-averse elements on the board, Needham has pointed to DeMint's growing coziness with the new administration as evidence that the think tank, a beacon of movement conservatism, needs a new steward. At the same time, Needham has been telling pro-Trump board members like Rebekah Mercer that Heritage needs a leader who will follow the president's lead—even going so far as to float White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, a key Mercer ally, as a potential future president, according to one source.

 

Heritage’s tolerance of Trump has sparked some criticism in conservative circles. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Heritage Foundation can’t endorse candidates, but DeMint met with then-candidate Trump in March 2016 and avoided publicly criticizing him throughout the campaign. Heritage played a key role in guiding Trump’s transition, helping to staff many administration posts.

 

“There are board members who think it got too political,” said the senior congressional aide. Needham, the source said, has been doing some “pretty deft political maneuvering if you ask me. Telling each faction what they want and need to hear.”

 

Needham, echoed another senior Republican congressional aide, is “basically telling different board members what they wanted to hear.”

 

A Heritage employee concurred. “What I’ve learned is that Mike Needham will tell these board members whatever they want to hear as long as it gets them to be opposed to DeMint,” the employee said.

 

Various conservative power structures (Heritage, Fox, the House, the Senate, etc.) are in complete disarray just as they hold the most federal and state power in forever.  Trump's a major factor in much of that.

State funded adoption agencies in Texas might be able to discriminate if the Republican legislature has its way:

 

http://www.chron.com/news/texas/article/Texas-adoption-agencies-could-ban-Jews-gays-11126491.php

 

Quote:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Parents seeking to adopt children in Texas could soon be rejected by state-funded or private agencies with religious objections to them being Jewish, Muslim, gay, single, or interfaith couples, under a proposal in the Republican-controlled Legislature.

 

Five other states have passed similar laws protecting faith-based adoption organizations that refuse to place children with gay parents or other households on religious grounds — but Texas' rule would extend to state-funded agencies. Only South Dakota's is similarly sweepingly.

 

The bill had been scheduled for debate and approval Saturday in the state House, but lawmakers bogged down with other matters. It now is expected to come up next week.

 

Republican sponsors of Texas' bill say it is designed to support the religious freedom of adoption agencies and foster care providers. Many of the agencies are private and faith-based but receive state funds.

 

But opponents say it robs children of stable homes while funding discrimination with taxpayer dollars.

 

Texas Republicans have gotten particularly shitty lately.  The "papers, please" bill, the bathroom bill, this adoption bill.... I guess that's what happens when the "Texas Miracle" ends and they need to fire up the base.

“We want people from the first district to be at our town halls, we don’t want people from outside of the first district,” said Blum. We don’t need people from Chicago there, or Des Moines there or Minneapolis there. I don’t represent them. They should go talk to their representatives as their town hall meetings. I don’t know why they would want to be at my town hall meetings to start with.”

“Some would make the case that you represent all Iowans,” said Scheinblum. “Shouldn’t all Iowans have a voice at the table?”

“I don’t represent all Iowans,” said Blum definitively, adding that the idea was similar to suggesting he could vote in Iowa City even though he didn’t live there.

Scheinblum, with instincts showing his national potential, then moved in for the kill “Would you still take donations from a Republican in Iowa City?”

Speaking of GOP legislatures specifically hurting Democratic areas, the North Carolina GOP stripped education funding in Democratic districts there to be assholes:

 

http://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/state-politics/article150397682.html

 

Quote:

N.C. Senate Republicans were visibly upset with Democrats for prolonging the budget debate with amendments during an after-midnight session Friday morning.

 

As the clock approached 1 a.m., Senate Minority Leader Dan Blue was summoned to the front of the chamber to talk privately with Senate leader Phil Berger. The Senate had rejected five amendments from Democrats to fund their spending priorities, but each time one proposal was shot down, another one was filed.

 

Senate Rules Chairman Bill Rabon abruptly called for a recess, stopping the proceedings for nearly two hours. GOP leaders headed to a conference room with legislative budget staff, while Democrats – some surprised by the lengthy delay – passed the time with an impromptu dance party in the hall.

 

The session finally resumed around 3 a.m., and Republican Sen. Brent Jackson introduced a new budget amendment that he explained would fund more pilot programs combating the opioid epidemic. He cited “a great deal of discussion” about the need for more opioid treatment funding.

 

Jackson didn’t mention where the additional $1 million would come from: directly from education programs in Senate Democrats’ districts and other initiatives the minority party sought.

 

Sen. Erica Smith-Ingram’s rural district in northeastern North Carolina took the biggest hit from the amendment. It strips $316,646 from two early college high schools in Northampton and Washington counties, and it specifically bans state funding from supporting a summer science, math and technology program called Eastern North Carolina STEM.

 

The Northampton County program has received about $180,000 in recent years to serve 90 high school students, many of whom are African-American and from low-income families.

 

“I don’t know what motivated the amendment, but it will have a devastating effect on an area that is already suffering,” Smith-Ingram said Saturday, adding that the STEM summer program would shut down if the provision is in the final budget.

Don't count on Issa's political demise. He was already one of the more odious Reps and still got re-elected in his district. Even if by a hair.
