Supreme Court refuses to block lawsuit against gun manufacturer brought by Sandy Hook families

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court refused Tuesday to shield a major arms manufacturer from potential liability in the 2012 school shooting that left 26 students and educators dead in Newtown, Conn.

The justices' action allows a lawsuit filed by parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims to move forward at the state level, on the allegation that Remington Arms Co. marketed the military-style rifle used in the mass shooting "for use in assaults against human beings."


Bernie Sanders voted FOR the 2005 law that shields gun manufacturers from liability. In 2016 during the campaign he defended his vote.

Ilhan Omar tweet called anti-Semitic 'dog whistle'



Great question from Angela Rye to Elizabeth Warren:

Angela Rye asks Elizabeth Warren.


Center Left democrats flip seats.

Left of left democrats seem to only win in democrat strong holds that are not seat flipping. That is my take away tonight.

Bernie Sanders Mistakenly Answers Wrong Question at NAACP Forum

Instead of answering the question Bernie launched into his stump speech.

Also, he was asked: "Why should the African American community place trust in you being able to help improve their economic wealth, being when some fear you are so far left that you will face difficulty getting legislation passed?"

He didn't answer this question either.. He instead talked about how he was arrested once in college. Not a good day for Bernie.


Independent Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders spent several minutes delivering an impassioned answer about health care during an NAACP forum. But the question he’d been asked was not about health care.

Senator Sanders was one of several candidates to appear Saturday at the Iowa NAACP’s Economic Freedom Presidential Town Hall, and was well-received. But Sanders hit a snag when Des Moines NAACP President and moderator Kameron Middlebrooks asked him one question, and Sanders decided to answer another.

“Senator, the average cost of child care in Iowa is $8,200 a year,” Middlebrooks said, adding “This is clearly, this is beyond the means of many African American households in Iowa.”

“How would you both increase the availability of high quality care, why the same time reducing the costs so providers could still have a livable wage?” he asked.

But Sanders instead launched into a lengthy, impassioned answer about the cost of health care. The response generated several rounds of applause from the audience.


I have a questing about supporters being bused in to events.

Is it normal for campaigns to bus people in from other places and states to participate in campaign events? Do all campaigns do that?
The reason why I ask is because there are a bunch of young folks on twitter talking about how they enjoyed their bus ride into Iowa for an event. There are pictures and tweets. Some folks saying they traveled from Nebraska. Is this a normal campaign thing?

US' Kushner backs Netanyahu-Gantz unity government

Jared Kushner, adviser to and son-in-law of US President Donald Trump, has told Israeli television that he hopes to see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chair Benny Gantz form a new coalition government.


Omar and Johnson voted "present" on today's House vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide.

The complete list wasn't available when I posted last night. I now edited the OP. They all should have to explain themselves. The reason I find her vote especially troubling is her comment on wanting a debate on academic consensus on this issue.

Trump had nothing to do with The raid and killing of Baghdadi.

Quote: 'Trump’s abrupt decision to withdraw American forces from northern Syria disrupted the meticulous planning and forced Pentagon officials to press ahead with a risky night raid... al-Baghdadi’s death occurred largely in spite of Trump’s actions'


This is why The Hill has gone to hell lately.

This whole twitter thread is very interesting.
