Donald Trump’s Trolls Unleash Hell on Veterans

Trump and fake supportersVeterans who have passed on being the GOP frontrunner’s props have found themselves targeted by his legion of trolls.

Veterans groups who stood up to Donald Trump’s pandering to their ranks are now routinely bombarded with nasty messages from the mogul’s supporters, who want to punish them for daring to challenge their leader.  

Paul Rieckhoff, the CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, learned this first-hand when he stood up to the Republican presidential frontrunner in late January, saying he would decline any donations from Trump’s charitable foundation if offered.

Obama chooses to fight over Supreme Court

Obama to nominate Scalia replacementPresident Barack Obama, suddenly given perhaps the greatest voter turnout tool ever, was facing the choice between setting off a nasty brawl with Congress by seizing the best chance in a generation to flip the ideological balance of the Supreme Court, or simply punting.  Obama chose the fight.

And he chose it just as the Supreme Court nears the end of a term that’s already shaping up as a referendum on his presidency around just about every core Democratic issue: abortion, affirmative action, union rights, immigration reform and environmental regulations.

The partisan strategy of voter suppression

Voter suppression by the GOPOver the last five years, perhaps no elected official in the country has been more aggressive in placing limits on voting and registration than Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

He authored a provision that created a two-tiered voting system under which some Kansans could cast a ballot for their president but not their governor or any other statewide official. On Jan. 15 a Kansas district court judge struck down the measure, calling it a violation of the state’s constitution and sharply rebuked Kobach, writing, “No such authority exists at all … to encumber the voting process as he has done here.”

The NRA Just Scored One Of Its Biggest Victories In Years

NRA victory in courtGun activists just had a very good day in court.

On Thursday, a divided panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit struck down Maryland’s ban on assault rifles and high-capacity magazines. In so doing, they potentially put this case on the fast track to the Supreme Court.

They also risk setting off a literal arms race where gun makers race to sell as many exotic kinds of weapons as possible in order to expand the scope of the Second Amendment.

The case primarily turns on a few lines in the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, its first decision holding that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms. Though Heller expanded the scope of that amendment significantly — effectively creating a whole new area of constitutional law more than two centuries after the Bill of Rights was ratified — it also held that the Constitution does not protect “a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”
