    Yes, no question the nomination in both cases flips the parties of the two justices, but I don't think it's at all evident that that is what she meant. I don't think the phrase "balance of power" is...

    Do you acknowledge that in 2016 the court was balanced or slightly conservative?

    Do you acknowledge that replacing a conservative judge with a liberal judge would result in the court going from...

    It's certainly an election thing, I don't buy it's aimed at white people.

    Antifa has organization, to say it isn't is to ignore history ... but it has NOTHING to do with black people.

    Because it's not hypocritical of her if you take in the full statement. That time it was dramatically flipping the balance of power and this time it isn't.

    Now, it certainly is true that she was...

    So, you finally understand that the documents didn't exonerate Trump of collusion, they just didn't prove it.

    I'm so happy you are now able to move off of some of your stuck arguments.

    It could be premeditated murder. They went from one location to another with intent to confront the people in the house with weapons. That part is absolutely premeditated. The fact that she was...

    I agree. She also said that she wouldn't use her personal positions on things to make her decisions, and her record supposedly supports that position.

    I understand not training the 1619 Project since it apparently has a lot of fact and administrative issues, and I'm not sure government employment is the place for anti-racism training. If someone...

    The balance now is heavily favoring conservatives, then it was pretty much even. Then it would go from even to dominated by liberal judges. Now it would just reinforce the existing bias.

    Law enforcement should not look for crimes for an individual. If Trump told the FBI to go find something on Biden it would certainly obviously be wrong (and I wouldn't be surprised if it happened).
