HOW TO TELL WHEN A REPUBLICAN IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE: Violent threats against the president are OK now?
Turn on TV or browse your newsfeeds on social media, and you will be bombarded with polemics about the sky falling and credible threats of violence against conservative figures.
The FBI investigated a threat to kill Milo Yiannoupolis for the audacity to want to speak on a college campus. Threats against former Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder’s wife caused him to withdraw himself from consideration. Multiple intimidatory remarks haunted members of the Trump-voting Electoral College. President Trump has been the target of declarations of violence on a near daily basis.
And yet, when it comes to this constant flow of threats, there seems to be little outrage from the nation’s leading journalists and pundits.
Social media shines almost every day with a new dimwitted threat against Trump and his presidency. “Comedienne” Sarah Silverman called for a military coup. Madonna told protesters she “thought” about blowing up the White House. Violence seems to break out every time a conservative comes to speak at a college campus. Rosie O’Donnell talks about “stopping” Trump on Twitter.
Snoop Dogg has done his best to get back on people’s radars since 1998 with his new music video in which he assassinates a clown dressed as Trump. Even if it was just a stunt by the 45-year-old rapper to stay relevant, it was still completely crass and unacceptable.
Leftists will miss civility when it’s gone. Related: Bow Wow tweets he wants to ‘pimp’ out Melania Trump over Snoop-Trump feud.
The rapper said in a since-deleted tweet Wednesday, “Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk a– up talking s–t about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us.”

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE PRESIDENT, VIOLENT THUGS WOULD FILL THE STREETS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! ‘Leftist Fight Club’ trains UCF students to fight Republicans.
The “Knights for Socialism” group at the University of Central Florida (UCF) held a workshop Sunday to teach left-wing students how to “BASH THE FASH” with a “Leftist Fight Club” open to everyone but Republicans.
“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis, Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH,” asserts the Facebook event page for “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire.” . . .
Scott Benton, a UCF College Republican, told Campus Reform that he considers the impulse toward violence to be a natural consequence of the intellectual indefensibility of leftists beliefs, saying, “If you can’t hang with someone on a debate stage, then you resort to other means to try and justify your cause.”
Other students, however, say they feel less safe on campus because of the event.
Well, I might if it weren’t Pajama Boy types.

Hotel staffers who crossed protest barricades to treat a heart-attack victim outside the Trump International Hotel in Washington this weekend were treated to jeers and anti-Trump slogans by protesters.
Around 4 p.m. Saturday, a woman protester suffered a heart attack on the street outside the Trump hotel. The medical emergency sent a hotel staffer sprinting outside with an automated external defibrillator.
Protesters held back by crowd control barricades loudly booed the staffer before the man passed the defibrillator to law enforcement.
As video exclusive to Heat Street shows, officers expressed displeasure to the protesters over the jeering: “One of the protesters had a heart attack,” a police officer told a protester. “They are trying to help.”
“You [are] booing…” the officer continued. “They are trying to save one of y’all’s life.”
They told me if Trump were elected, Washington would be full of hate-filled ignoramuses. And they were right!
THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, MOBS OF THUGS WOULD IMPOVERISH MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Anti-Trump protesters ruin Muslim immigrant’s livelihood by torching limo. “Ashraf’s employee, Luis Villarroel, 58, was dropping a client off at their destination when things turned ugly. Protesters smashed doors and windows in the vicinity, but then turned their attention to Villarroel and the limo. People began pounding on the car and started throwing stones and bricks in his direction. The driver ended up going to the hospital for cuts on his hands and arms from glass being shattered by thrown projectiles.”
Apparently, they hate Hispanics, too.
IMAGINE IF PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT HAD DONE THIS FOR OBAMA’S FIRST INAUGURAL: Protests will aim to disrupt Trump inauguration.
DisruptJ20, which is working with Black Lives Matter and other protest groups, said it also planned predawn blockades and disruptive demonstrations during inaugural balls in the evening.
Some 300 DisruptJ20 volunteers will work to mobilize demonstrators for a series of protests the group has dubbed the “Festival of Resistance.”
“We are not in favor of a peaceful transition of power, and we need to stop it,” organizer Legba Carrefour said.
They told me if Trump were elected, the streets would be full of fascist stormtroopers. And they were right!
But given that this is, by its own admission, not a peaceful protest but a criminal conspiracy aimed at preventing a constitutional transition of power, I hope that law enforcement will not simply make a few arrests, but prosecute the organizers and fundraisers all the way up the chain.
Also, “Legba Carrefour?” Really? What’s next, Roger Moore in a swamp boat? Sheesh.

Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!”
Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding the young white man hostage.
“The video is reprehensible,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
“It’s sickening. You know it makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Police Supt. Eddie Johnson added.
In the video, the victim is repeatedly kicked and hit, his scalp is cut, all while he is tied up with his mouth taped shut.
I blame the Democrats’ inflammatory racial rhetoric.
UPDATE: The video is available at Heavy.com.

They occasionally utter things like, “Fuck Donald Trump, fuck white people.” At one point, the video recorder—a black woman whose name is easily identifiable—suggests putting the victim out of his misery.”

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR TRUMP, WE’D HAVE STORMTROOPERS IN THE STREETS, AND THEY WERE RIGHT!
President Lyndon Johnson, running for reelection in 1964 against Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, released perhaps the most famous political advertisement of all time. As Smithsonian Magazine describes it: “A 3-year-old girl in a simple dress counted as she plucked daisy petals in a sun-dappled field. Her words were supplanted by a mission-control countdown followed by a massive nuclear blast in a classic mushroom shape. The message was clear if only implicit: Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater was a genocidal maniac who threatened the world’s future.”
Goldwater, we were supposed to think, was a crazy guy who’d get us into a stupid war. Except it turned out that LBJ, crazy or not, was the one who got us into a stupid war, escalating to the point where, at its peak, we had 538,000 soldiers in Vietnam. That led to a famous political joke: “They told me if I voted for Goldwater, we’d have half a million soldiers in Vietnam. And sure enough, I voted for Goldwater — and we’ve got half a million soldiers in Vietnam.” By the time the war was over, more than 58,000 Americans were dead.
Now it’s Hillary Clinton who’s sounding LBJ’s theme. Trump, she says, is crazy and will get us into a stupid war. And she’s enlisted the Daisy ad girl, now all grown up, to make her point.
Not everyone is buying it.

And they were right! “When President Barack Obama took office, in 2009, he championed the cause of government transparency, and spoke admiringly of whistle-blowers, whom he described as ‘often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government.’ But the Obama Administration has pursued leak prosecutions with a surprising relentlessness. Including the Drake case, it has been using the Espionage Act to press criminal charges in five alleged instances of national-security leaks—more such prosecutions than have occurred in all previous Administrations combined.”
THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED REPUBLICAN, THE SEX POLICE WOULD BE OUT IN FORCE. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Connecticut senate passes affirmative consent bill.
Connecticut is one step closer to ensuring college students are easily accused of sexual assault for not following a government-mandated list of rules for the bedroom.
The state senate, late Wednesday evening, passed an affirmative consent bill — or “yes means yes” legislation — designed to force students engaging in sexual activity to follow a question-and-answer formula. From the moment the students are about to touch, they would have to ask: “May I kiss you?” “May I touch you here?” etc.
Proponents of the policy insist this isn’t true, that the bill merely defines consent as an “active, clear and voluntary agreement by a person.” But that is not the only language in the bill. Similar bills have passed in California, Hawaii and New York, and while they allow nonverbal communication to count as consent, but there can be too much ambiguity in a nod or a moan.
The policy decouples context from the totality of the sexual experience. If a student fails to ask for permission before one escalation, but asks for it for a different escalation, the entire encounter can be considered sexual assault. If a student has been drinking (the bill doesn’t require an accuser to prove they were incapacitated), then all consent is negated. Further, once someone is accused, their level of intoxication doesn’t matter, even if under the same policy they could be considered too incapacitated to consent.
As I keep saying, these laws violate Lawrence v. Texas. Especially when applied to Dionysexuals.
THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP BECAME THE FRONTRUNNER MISOGYNY WOULD BE EVERYWHERE. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Maryland Democrats Have A Woman Problem.
For the first time since 1971, Maryland might have an all-male congressional delegation after the 2016 elections — and it will be the fault of Democrats.
This is the party that constantly accuses Republicans of being “anti-woman” and brags that they have more women in Congress. Now here they are, not even nominating any women in Maryland.
It’s made all the more alarming by the fact that Sen. Barabara Mikulski, D-Md., the longest-serving woman in Congress, who has spent her time advocating for more women in politics, is retiring. Two well-known Democrats were vying for Mikulski’s open seat — Reps. Chris Van Hollen and Donna Edwards. Van Hollen won the primary by 14 points. His campaign also outraised Edwards by a 2-to-1 margin.
Outside groups boosted Edwards more, however, including the well-known EMILY’s List. But the group’s influence has waned significantly in recent years.
Why do the Democrats hate women?

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Segregation is making a comeback — on college campuses.
Segregation was outlawed half a century ago, but some want to bring it back, at least on college campuses. And those seeking to bring segregation back are African-Americans — the very group hurt most by it in the early part of the 20th century.
Across the country last fall, college students began protesting alleged oppression and discrimination by white administrators and students. Most of the grievances centered around a lack of black professors or the names of certain buildings, but some protesters are asking for “safe spaces” where whites aren’t allowed.
A website called TheDemands.org details the 76 demand lists from protesters across the country. The College Fix has noted that many of the lists call for segregated sections of campus.

I did not know they could then obtain a search warrant to flip through our entire home and seize our belongings, including some of my little sister’s things. I did not know the government could restrict my father’s freedom for months and force him to fight for his innocence with only false and reckless claims against him.

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR MITT ROMNEY, WE’D HAVE AN ANTI-SCIENCE GOVERNMENT THAT WOULD BRUTALIZE INNOCENT FOREIGNERS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT!
When the Justice Department arrested the chairman of Temple University’s physics department this spring and accused him of sharing sensitive American-made technology with China, prosecutors had what seemed like a damning piece of evidence: schematics of sophisticated laboratory equipment sent by the professor, Xi Xiaoxing, to scientists in China.
The schematics, prosecutors said, revealed the design of a device known as a pocket heater. The equipment is used in semiconductor research, and Dr. Xi had signed an agreement promising to keep its design a secret.
But months later, long after federal agents had led Dr. Xi away in handcuffs, independent experts discovered something wrong with the evidence at the heart of the Justice Department’s case: The blueprints were not for a pocket heater.
Faced with sworn statements from leading scientists, including an inventor of the pocket heater, the Justice Department on Friday afternoon dropped all charges against Dr. Xi, an American citizen.
It was an embarrassing acknowledgment that prosecutors and F.B.I. agents did not understand — and did not do enough to learn — the science at the heart of the case before bringing charges that jeopardized Dr. Xi’s career and left the impression that he was spying for China.
“I don’t expect them to understand everything I do,” Dr. Xi, 57, said in a telephone interview. “But the fact that they don’t consult with experts and then charge me? Put my family through all this? Damage my reputation? They shouldn’t do this. This is not a joke. This is not a game.”
It’s clown cars all the way down.

This conviction stemmed from her first ever arrest, and she was not even caught with crack in her possession.”

AND YET, IN COLLEGE, HE PROBABLY MOCKED REEFER MADNESS: Gov. Andrew Cuomo enacts policy based on propaganda film.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was so taken in by the documentary “The Hunting Ground” that he is using it to promote his campus sexual assault agenda.
Cuomo screened the film for a private audience at the Lincoln Center last week, and promoted his “Enough is Enough” strategy for combating campus sexual assault. His proposal would make “yes means yes” consent standards the law of the land for all New York colleges and universities — including private universities.
Late last year, Cuomo directed the State University of New York and its 64 campuses to adopt the consent policy, which requires “affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement” that is “ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time.” The policy also states that a “lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent.”
This new definition of consent makes nearly every sexual encounter illegal unless a constant back and forth of “May I…?” is practiced. Also, consuming drugs or alcohol negates consent, as all an accuser has to say is that she was too drunk to consent. The law provides no due process protections, so accusations are the main — if not the only — evidence available. Combine that with a “preponderance of evidence” standard, which says that a campus hearing panel must be just 50.01 percent sure the accuser is telling the truth, and a culture that says no one lies about rape, and you have a recipe for injustice against accused students.
Cuomo’s basing his agenda, in part, on “The Hunting Ground,” an alleged “documentary” film with nearly as many holes as Rolling Stone’s gang-rape story (the film at least includes accusations against real people). The film relies on dubious, misleading and one-sided accounts of sexual assault allegations — and the filmmakers didn’t give accused students or universities a chance to respond until after the film was finished and submitted to the Sundance Film Festival. It also relies on debunked statistics to claim that American college women are living in a “rape culture” with danger at every turn.
But Cuomo fell for — or sees an opportunity in — “The Hunting Ground” hook, line and sinker. And now he’s using it to curry favor with activists with no regard to the damage these policies do to the wrongly accused.
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, sexaphobes would be micromanaging people’s sex lives. And they were right!
VIRGINIA POSTREL: Reason Magazine Subpoena Stomps on Free Speech.
Wielding subpoenas demanding information on anonymous commenters, the government is harassing a respected journalism site that dissents from its policies. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York claims these comments could constitute violent threats, even though they’re clearly hyperbolic political rhetoric.
This is happening in America — weirdly, to a site I founded, and one whose commenters often earned my public contempt.
Los Angeles legal blogger Ken White has obtained a grand jury subpoena issued to Reason.com, the online home of the libertarian magazine I edited throughout the 1990s. The subpoena seeks information about commenters who posted in response to an article by the site’s editor Nick Gillespie about the letter that Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht wrote to Judge Katherine B. Forrest before she sentenced him to life in prison without parole. Ulbricht was convicted of seven felony charges, included conspiracies to traffic in narcotics and launder money, and faced a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison. The letter was an appeal for leniency.
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, constitution-trampling prosecutors would be attacking free speech. And they were right!

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR MITT ROMNEY, NATIONAL-SECURITY PARANOIA WOULD PREVAIL. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Arms control treaty could land security researchers like me in jail.
ASHE SCHOW: Obama, the most sexist President ever?
If verbal sleights (or microaggressions) are equal to violence against women — and if you’ve been paying attention to the current state of college campuses, they are — then President Obama is one of the worst offenders in modern history, if not ever.
Exhibit A: Yesterday, Senate Democrats blocked a trade bill supported by Obama and Republicans (yes, you read that correctly). Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., led the revolt by Democrats. On Saturday, Obama said the following of Warren:
“The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else. And you know, she’s got a voice that she wants to get out there. And I understand that.”
Did you see the sexism? Did you see it? Those three sentences are teeming with sexism so wrong, so disrespectful, I’m surprised the outrage brigade isn’t calling for his head. . . .
This is just Obama’s most recent brush with sexism. After all, this is a man who has been waging his own “war on women” for years. In 2013, he was considering replacing Debbie Wasserman Schultz as head of the Democratic National Committee, which is about as sexist a thing as anyone could do. Wasserman Schultz was prepared to call him out on it in such terms. Luckily for Obama, she was mollified by the patriarchy and allowed to keep her job.
And let’s not forget May 2008, when then-Sen. Obama called a female reporter “sweetie” during a visit to a Chrysler plant in Sterling Heights, Pa. A month earlier, he had called a female factory worker in Allentown, Pa., “sweetie” as well. And don’t forget his famous sexist response to Hillary Clinton: “You’re likable enough, Hillary.”
That’s a seven-year history of sexism for Obama.
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney we’d have a president who was dismissive toward women. And they were right!
IT’S COME TO THIS: NOW president: Obama’s Warren critique sexist.
National Organization for Women (NOW) president Terry O’Neill on Wednesday called President Obama’s critique of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sexist.
O’Neill told The Hill she took issue with Obama calling Warren by her first name during an interview with Yahoo News published Saturday.
“Yes, I think it is sexist,” O’Neill said. “I think the president was trying to build up his own trustworthiness on this issue by convincing us that Senator Warren’s concerns are not to be taken seriously. But he did it in a sexist way.”
Obama told Yahoo that Warren was opposing his trade agenda to further her own political brand.
“The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else. And you know, she’s got a voice that she wants to get out there. And I understand that,” Obama told Yahoo.
O’Neill said Obama’s “clear subtext is that the little lady just doesn’t know what she’s talking about.”
“I think it was disrespectful,” O’Neill said.
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) suggested Obama’s remarks were sexist earlier Tuesday, according to reports.
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, we’d have a sexist President who condescended to the “little ladies.” And they were right!
GOOD. HE WAS BASICALLY SERVED UP AS A SCAPEGOAT: Judge won’t dismiss lawsuit from band director fired over sexual assault accusations.
Last year, Waters was fired after an internal investigation (which conveniently coincided with an investigation by the Department of Education for Title IX investigations) revealed a “sexualized” culture within the band that Waters failed to adequately stop. Complaints included hazing of new band members (that only a small percentage of the 225-member band found objectionable), an unofficial songbook containing vulgar lyrics for OSU fight songs and an allegedly mishandled sexual assault accusation.
The hazing and other traditions predated Waters, but in the current environment of Title IX witch hunts, someone had to be held accountable. Waters says that OSU officials told him he would be allowed to keep his job if he adopted a “zero-tolerance” policy. Then, two weeks later, he was fired. Shortly thereafter, the Department of Education ended its investigation into OSU, even citing the firing as one reason.
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, prudes would be mounting sexual witch-hunts on America’s college campuses. And they were right!
THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR MITT ROMNEY, WE’D SEE RACISM ACROSS ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Kentucky judge criticized for telling parents they fostered racist behavior in daughter. “A Kentucky judge blamed two parents for their young girl’s ‘constant fear of black men’ after an armed robbery she witnessed, local reports said. The parents argued for a tougher sentence for the man convicted of busting into their Louisville home at gunpoint while their daughter watched ‘Spongebob Square Pants,’ according to the Courier-Journal. Judge Olu Stevens blasted Jordan and Tommy Gray’s victim impact statement at a court hearing in February and again recently in a Facebook post he later deleted. . . . Stevens contends the statement played no role in his decision to sentence the robber, 27-year-old Gregory Wallace, who pleaded guilty to the March 21, 2013, crime, to only five years’ probation.”
THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED AGAINST BARACK OBAMA, WE’D HAVE POLITICIANS OBSESSED WITH ETHNIC PURITY. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! “A Brooklyn city councilwoman wants to know why ‘blocs’ of Asians are living in two Fort Greene housing projects — and suggested it would be ‘beneficial’ to assign housing by ethnic group.”

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR MITT ROMNEY, RACISTS WOULD BE OPPOSING INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! State senator says all white people are racist and ‘polluted’ his blood.
Omaha Sen. Ernie Chambers said all white people are racist and that his blood was “polluted” by white people last week while filibustering a bill and lambasting a state education board member who has rejected calls for his resignation after his blog called the president a “half-breed.”
Chambers, a 77-year-old African American senator who is the state’s longest serving lawmaker, made the comments about race while filibustering a bill that would increase the fee for marriage licenses.
Boy, those people who warned me about voting for Mitt Romney sure were smart.

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR MITT ROMNEY, THE CIA WOULD ESCAPE ALL MEANINGFUL CIVILIAN CONTROL. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! After Scrutiny, C.I.A. Mandate Is Untouched.
Though, snark aside, that’s not really what’s going on here: “The scathing report the Senate Intelligence Committee delivered this month is unlikely to significantly change the role the C.I.A. now plays in running America’s secret wars. A number of factors — from steadfast backing by Congress and the White House to strong public support for clandestine operations — ensure that an agency that has been ascendant since President Obama came into office is not likely to see its mission diminished, either during his waning years in the White House or for some time after that.”
Actually, it would be just as fair to say that the CIA is doing exactly what civilians want it to.

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED REPUBLICAN, IT WOULD BE OPEN SEASON ON BLACK WOMEN: New emails show White House role in Sherrod ouster.
A 2010 email from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says his department was “waiting for the go-ahead” from the White House before accepting the resignation of employee Shirley Sherrod, according to newly released documents, despite Obama administration assertions that her ouster was Vilsack’s decision alone.
The email, which was made public Friday in an ongoing federal court case over the matter, shed more light on the evening of July 19, 2010, when the USDA hastily asked Sherrod to resign after a video showing her making supposed racist remarks surfaced on a conservative website. Her dismissal turned into a racial firestorm after it became clear that the video had been edited and her remarks were meant to tell a story of reconciliation.
Both the White House and Vilsack have repeatedly said the agriculture secretary made the decision to ask for Sherrod’s resignation without White House input. The emails, along with earlier emails obtained by The Associated Press under the Freedom of Information Act in 2010 and 2012, make it apparent that Vilsack wanted Sherrod to leave the department and ordered her resignation. But a newly-released email sent by Vilsack himself suggests he was awaiting a decision from White House officials on how to proceed.
I never doubted that there was White House involvement in that decision. Nor did anyone else who was paying attention.

The government can’t require such for-profit businesses to display ‘Live Free or Die’ on their company cars. It can’t require for-profit newspapers to publish things they don’t want to publish. Likewise, it can’t require for-profit officiants of verbal ceremonies (especially religious ceremonies, but secular ones as well) to say things they choose not to say.”

HEADS NEED TO ROLL FOR THIS STUFF, AND I’M NOT SURE I MEAN FIGURATIVELY: EPA tells court it may have lost text messages.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) told a federal court that it may have lost the text messages at the center of a lawsuit by a libertarian think tank.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) sued the EPA last year in federal court to compel the release of text messages to and from Administrator Gina McCarthy and her predecessor under the Freedom of Information Act.
In the Tuesday filing to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Justice Department lawyers representing the EPA said the agency will soon file a notice that it may have misplaced records that it was legally required to retain.
“Defendant has decided to formally notify the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) about the potential loss of federal records relating to text messages,” the lawyers told the court.
Once it files that notice the CEI’s claim will become moot, since the records do not exist, the agency said. Lawyers will ask the court for a hearing to dismiss the case.

From the comments: “Why so much racism in places that are run by Democrats?”
The troubled judicial nomination of Michael P. Boggs is stuck in the Senate Judiciary Committee as the days grow short for congressional action this year, and the panel is moving other nominations ahead of his.
The committee added a slate of 10 judicial nominees to its agenda for votes this month, likely next week. That agenda does not include Boggs, one of President Barack Obama’s nominees to a federal district court in Georgia.
A vote now on Boggs’ nomination would unnecessarily risk a potentially awkward intraparty conflict among Democrats, Senate aides and nominations experts familiar with the nomination said. Committee Democrats either could reject one of Obama’s judicial picks for the first time. Or the nomination could advance to the full Senate with opposition from many Democrats and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. . . .
Most Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee, however, oppose Boggs’ nomination based on positions Boggs took on abortion and same-sex marriage as a Democratic state lawmaker in Georgia in the early 2000s. Reid voiced opposition to Boggs, and so did progressive groups such as NARAL Pro-Choice America.

THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR
JOHN MCCAIN MITT ROMNEY, WE’D HAVE A PRESIDENT ADDICTED TO UNILATERAL WARMAKING. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Obama tells leaders he doesn’t need their vote for ISIS campaign.
President Obama told congressional leaders at a White House meeting on Tuesday he doesn’t need their authorization to expand his military campaign against Islamic terrorists.
The president offered the assurance one day before a prime-time address he’s scheduled to give to the nation. . . .
While Obama told the House and Senate leaders he would welcome congressional action that demonstrates a unified front, the president told the bipartisan group “he has the authority he needs to take action against (ISIS) in accordance with the mission he will lay out in his address,” according to the White House.
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have called on Obama to better clarify his strategy this week, and the White House has said the president will offer a frank “assessment of this critical national security priority.”
White House press secretary Josh Earnest cautioned that the address would not provide a timeline for the military campaign, nor was Obama expected to outline costs for the operation.
Plus: “Polls show that confidence in Obama’s foreign policy is eroding just as anxiety over the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has peaked.”
