The Miracle of the Trump Economy, Cont.

It’s a fixer-upper with potential.

Ugh:

Nearly 19 million Americans could lose their homes when eviction limits expire Dec. 31

Needless to say, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell (R-Russia) is not doing anything about it: no extra session of the Senate, no consideration of any of the previously passed bills from the House. Which is not to say that he doesn’t have a plan…

McConnell warns Republican senators to stay healthy or risk their lame-duck agenda

“…There are a lot of items on McConnell’s agenda in the final weeks of the year, including passing a government funding bill by Dec. 11 to avoid a shutdown, trying to find agreement on coronavirus aid and approving final appointments before President-elect Joe Biden takes over the White House in January.”

He wants to cram in more judges.

    The sociopathy of that vile filth and the voters who re-elected him bear every jot and tiddle of the blame for the impending avalanche of avoidable hardship and sickness, hunger and death that will surely visit the newly unhomed. Never ever going to get over this crime in commission against my fellow countrymen.

      Yeah- but the republican faithful have convinced themselves that they won’t be the ones suffering all that hardship- it will all be the blehs and browns and filthy immigrants. As TG pointed out earlier- The cruelty is the point. And they will continue to call themselves Christians.

    I wonder – can Joe call in the ABA and have them review credentials of all judge appointees? If he offloads the task of removing those deemed unfit… Or can this be done? I don’t really understand judge appointments and terms, but I seem to remember Shrub having a bunch of judges removed who wouldn’t swear loyalty to the Dick, although the story was that there were other reasons. It might have been other appointees, though, not sure.

    • ONce appoiinted a judge serves for life, unless impeached. This is why #MoscowMitch’es single obsession for the last six years had been installing Theocrat/Fascist Federalist Society judges, regardless of their qualifications. Their mission is to dismantle the United States and recreate the Confederacy, piece by corrupt piece.

        Then we’re doomed. They wouldn’t even impeach Thomas for adjudicating (term?) on a case that would substantially affect his wife’s financial interests.

      I believe it was the US Attorneys that Shrub fired for lack of loyalty and lack of voter fraud investigation.

      Article 3 of The Constitution is where it talks about Justices serving for life. I’m sure that there are loopholes for what constitutes a lifetime term, and perhaps forced retirement can be thought of as still serving emeritus.

        Sounds like impeachment is about the only clear path to remove a bad judge. I think I read/heard somewhere that judges technically don’t even need to be competent in the law or even know the law. So an ABA removal of license would be pointless viz a viz judge removal, if that is correct.
