  1. Seriously America, government isnt a game, and the presidency isnt a joke, have you no shame?? No decency?? Come on these Republican alt-right types with the alt-facts are destroying any shred of decencyy along with credibility – my country has stood by yours since long before I was born but Trump is seemingly tearing your country inside out and bringing out the worst angles of your nature! Remember your History, America can be inspirational it can be worthy of leading the world but this is not that. This is shameful!

  2. ''PEOPLE NEVER CHANGE only die'' .in L.A there are only 2 gangs the lapd & the ones we make 2 keep us alive

    a black man might take a dollar or stab a man 4 protection?a brown man might rob a store or shoot a man 2 feed his FAMILY – BUT WHO WANT's & HAS TRYDE 2 BLOW THE WORLD – UP & is always trying to TAKE IT ALL because "their dog told them" I wonder why white people cant have babies with each other ? PEOPLE can be reborn !!!If a "lie" is told to you & never corrected its not a "lie" it's BRAINWASHING? sheriff BACA TORTURED black&brown IN JAIL HE BRAINWASHED US FBI ONLY CARED AFTER 2 AGENTS GOT BRAINWASHED.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hFT7tbCjkc

  3. it's crazy because i wish everyone could see the power comes from people and instead everyone just says nothing and goes on facebook.. i want to speak out against this behavior in a justice system but whats the point if everyone is too afraid to act..

  4. This Steven Menashi is a future Trump lackey wannabe, so he uses a well-known recipe: write one or more pseudo-scientific articles in several law journals giving a legal validation to policies favoured by Trump/Moscow Mitch/ the GOP, add a large helping of TV appearances as expert in something vaguely legal, hence get noticed and get a head start for the next appointment to SCOTUS.

  5. Is there a legal way of removing/impeaching all these obviously incompetent judges? I can’t believe they are going to stay for life and how much damage they will do with their total ignorance of the law.

  6. The USA is not a country like Euro countries, the US is a bloc like the old Soviet Union. It cannot be run like a single state country. It should be dismantled because like the USSR, it has run aground and cannot and does not function.

  7. The biggest "problem" the right wingers have had in past years is the 9th circuit court ( and others) stepping in to block so much of their nefarious power grabbing, civil rights violating and race baiting moves they have had the audacity to attempt to legislate into law on the local level. Not to mention environment destroying, self dealing moves that clearly indicate corruption by local officials to bypass the public good and protections to reward instead, the financial interests of powerful business entities and bit players who bought off those local authorities. In would ride the circuit courts like shiny knights with the rule of law to say, " nope, aint gonna happen. There are laws in this country and here is what they say!" Now we have become a corrupt state. A 3rd world country. The appellate court is more than an attempt to place White Nationalism to the forefront of everything they decide on social and civil rights issues, its also to put powerful businesses and the wealthy 1% in permanent control of every labor, every environmental, every public lands use, every financial and market manipulation dispute that is brought against them by individuals, communities, workers, environmentalists, and the public as a whole seeking fairness, privacy, and justice. The courts were always our protector of individual rights and community needs over the financial ambitions of the rich and powerful. Not anymore. That was Moscow Mitch's long range goal all along. 30 yrs patiently waiting. Our only hope is to change the constitution's rules on lifetime appointments so we can rout out the corruption in the courts.

  8. It's like the Republicans new that they were going to win the president in 2016. It's Like they had a plan in making this happen a Russia maybe………..

  9. Shocker that the Dump likes to talk about fake retribution stories [sort of like the myth of the noble wild west] since he's had no military or service experience.

  10. Deleting my comments again. Seems kinda silly when it is a quote from the declaration of independence. MSM has ruined youtube now. See you all over on bitchut.

  11. Put me in jail if you want, for exercising my freedom of speech, but Mitch McConnell needs a bullet in the head to make this country great again.

  12. And THIS person will be on the federate appellate bench…… in NYC 🤔Now who could be eventually facing that judge?

  13. This bare repeating: The FAKE AZZ President of the United States is a lying racist criminal who is trying to have an authoritarian regime… His only asset as a human is to lie, cheat and steal while in the oval office

  14. This is just a simple misunderstanding. The Orange Fuhrer though he had to nominate a fellow clown for the Second Circus Court.

  15. Waw, who could have thought that the US would just copy the Nazis… US which so called ‘freed Europe from the Nazis’…
    So whites are Ubermenschen again? ¡Wake up Americans!

  16. Nahhh, the crimes are from OBAMA and His Administration and Rachel just talks Crap! Over and over with nothing but BS!!

  17. Why a lifetime appointments. It is easy to see the end results. These judges should be approved by a certain percentage of Congress with a 5 year appointment, not renewable.

  18. I can't with all of this. Regardless of my personal success, earning a PhD, the fact that portions of my family lived in the Americans before the Mayflower and others became Americans after the Mexican American War…despite the fact that portions of my family were brought in bondage to the Americas as chattel and survived, and whose struggles for selfhood helped make this Nation live to the higher truths of all people being created equal…and despite studying classical liberal political philosophy at some of the great schools of Europe and the US and being able to quote the great thinkers whose work undergirds our very notion of nationhood, I will never be seen as a true American by these yahoos (the Jonathan Swift kind). And all because of the "mere distinction of colour". Oh well.

  19. You are such a frigging liar and full of crap it's coming out of your ears

    Did you even read his article?

    You are so terrible at your job. Do everyone a favor and quit

  20. The actual article from Menashi, whose family are middle eastern Jews, was a defense of Israel. Specifically he was countering arguments that Israel identifying as a Jewish state is inconsistent with claims that it is a liberal Democracy. Menashi argues successful nations need to have some unifying purpose. Maddow only uses quotes that refer to race and ethnicity, but Menashi specifically says those are just a few of many potential things that can unite people, including history, geography, economics etc. As you can see, the actual argument he is making doesn't even remotely resemble Maddow's portrayal, which is hardly a surprise. She does this all the time. Other people should know better.

    THIS is what Maddow and Leftist morons (redundant I know) call "white supremacy" and "advocate of ethnonationalism"

    I can't decide who is more stupid. Maddow, or all you sheep eating this pile of crap

  21. Stephen Menashi is a white nationalist. If Menashi gets accepted by the Senate, destroy the GOP party. They are all racists because Menashi is a racist promoting genocide. His recent paper said there is no stability in government without ethnocentricity. Ethnocentric means one race. He is white so he is promoting genocide of non-white Americans.

  22. Once more trump and his base are a bunch of hypocrites and bigots and the republicans party are going along with trump racist thinking by putting people in that thanks like him America time to vote trump out and all that support him that McConnell and Graham and any other republicans that support trump

  23. Mean to say but it would really be nice if Mitch got testicular cancer and croaked. I never thought I’d see the day when my own government was full of Russian agents. Very sad.

  24. I mean… Hitler got his ideas from America and trump is Hitler redux.

  25. Trump appoints "good judges". He never worries about the prosecutor he focuses on in a judge who will let him twist the law to his benefit.

  26. Can Amerikkka just ADMIT that black folks havent been "crying" wolf about it being racist? From police to judges to store owners… to thier very own employers. We've been saying the "fix" is in for years now. This appointment isnt new or news.to.us. how many of them have been missed when you all weren't looking! It's easy to find. Just go find the cases where a judge sentenced a young black man to 30 years in jail for having a pound of weed! There goes.one rascist.judge right there! Like DUHHHHH!

  27. OMG RACHEL. . .

I swear, I understand your core audience might be made up of senior citizens and they may have a hard time hearing or understanding what you're talking about at any given time, BUT THEY ARE NOT STUPID!

  29. HA HA HA HA HA wow, you guys make Canada look like the bastions of balance and fair play. Pay to access scandal? looks south yah, not right but hardly "bad". Trying to get the head of the Judiciary to offer a deal to a potential criminal enterprise to save jobs? looks south Yah, again, shouldn't be doing it but hardly "criminal". Sorry Canadian conservatives… you guys really need to start upping your game if you intend to align yourselves with MAGA or the Mitch-like dumpster fire that is the US. That being said, good job Ford, your on your way.

  30. Although `Ethnonationalism` exists here in Canada, it runs contrary to our `National Identity`. It has difficulty being taken seriously in a nation that celebrates its diversity, and whose most pressing social issue is Native reparations. We have our medical system figured out, and we love it just the way that it is. Our gun problem would disappear if we didn`t share a 4000 mile border with you guys. Bottom line: I`m glad that this guy is yours, because we don`t want any of what he`s got.

  31. I know the House Judiciary is looking into possibly Impeaching Kavanaugh (great) but they also need to go after these unqualified Fools they HAVE TO have dirt that can be used against them for removal!

  32. And has anyone considered the Democrats did the same thing when they had the power? Do a little research. We survived eight years of Obama duplicity and I am confident you Democrats and liberals will survive Trump.

  33. Only the best people, huh?
    America, please, end this nightmare ASAP. Everybody go vote in 2020 (and bring as many people with you as possible).

  34. We stopped watching her last year and plan to vote for president Trump.. Thanks to this left wing loon. She is hurting America.

  35. What a slime this witch is. No, She is completely misrepresenting what he said because I don't believe she is stupid enough to read something and interpret it 180 degrees out. She is wrong about everything she talks about and has been since day one.

  36. In her now infamous unhinged style, Rabid MadCow does it again. Yet another totally misinformed, misunderstood and untrue article. She needs to go…PERIOD!

  37. I disagree with the interpretation. Ethnonationality is essentially a way for a nation to come together with some, not all, common ideals. For example, religion. The majority of white, black and latino call Christianity their religion. His example is a wordy way of descriving a 50% Christian, 50% Muslim nation, it just does't work. Or a 50% Hindu Nation and 50% Jewish, it just wouldn't work culturally. "Ethno" does not mean Race. "Ethno" means "Combining Form". A form (Culture) Combined. Combined Nationality, not Race Nationality. I wish people would read the dictionary.

  38. I feel dumber by even watching this Trump is appointing great Jude's to the courts that will interpret the Constitution AS WRITTEN and not make it up as they go !!

  39. I'm not much on conspires but, isn't the State of New York investigating Trump? If anything is found couldn't Trump, appeal the decision to the 2nd Appellate Court? This person is being nominated for which court???
