    Remy: People Will Die!

    These cuts are blood money. People will die. Let’s be very clear: Senate Republicans are paying for tax cuts for the wealthy with American lives. People need kidneys. It’s sad but decreed. Yet this Senator’s hoarding one more than she needs. I offer this bill and I hope you’ll vote aye unless of course you just want people to die. Traffic deaths have many crying with fear. Over thirty thousand people are dying each year. This modest change I propose must be applied unless of course you just want people to die. Alcohol deaths are exceeding comparisons, black people, white people, native American. We need to ban alcohol, it can’t…

    Were Federalist Really Your Friends

    United States Department Of Justice: The United States Department of Justice (DOJ), also known as the Justice Department, is the U.S. federal executive department responsible for the enforcement of the law and administration of justice, equivalent to the justice or interior ministries of other countries. The Department is led by the Attorney General, who is nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate and is a member of the Cabinet. The “Act to Establish the Department of Justice” drastically increased the Attorney General’s responsibilities to include the supervision of all United States Attorneys, formerly under the Department of the Interior, the prosecution of all federal crimes, and the representation…

    Congressional Democrats return from recess vowing to prioritize gun legislation

    JUDY WOODRUFF: With the August recess now over, members of Congress scrambled today to prioritize their agenda items. As Capitol Hill correspondent Lisa Desjardins reports, there’s a lot to choose from. LISA DESJARDINS: Their first full day back from summer break, House Democrats wanted to talk guns and gun violence, holding a forum on the issue. REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA): We will fight on every front, in the courts, and in the Congress, and in the court of public opinion, to make sure this issue is too hot to handle for the GOP to block. We’re not taking no for an answer. LISA DESJARDINS: Speaker Pelosi is particularly touting a…

    Filibusters: History, Purpose, & Controversy [POLICYbrief]

    The purpose of the filibuster is to contribute to the Senate’s status as being the world’s greatest deliberative, legislative body. The filibuster is a rule that allows for indefinite debate in the United States Senate. Anyone can debate a bill as long as they want to debate a bill, uh, that is, until three-fifths of the members of the Senate vote to end debate through a mechanism called cloture. In one form or another, the filibuster has always existed in the Senate. Senators had the right to speak indefinitely, and to extend debate as long as any one senator chose. The filibuster is certainly an important part of the Senate’s…

    Executive Power & the Louisiana Purchase

    I think without a doubt, the Louisiana Purchase is one of the great turning points in American history. It’s hard to imagine the country succeeding the way it has without purchasing Louisiana. The Louisiana Purchase was the result of a treaty negotiated by Robert Livingston and James Monroe with, ah, Napoleon of France that gave the United States possession of a swath of territory that would cause us to double in size for $15,000,000, about three cents an acre. It was originally supposed to be the Louisiana Purchase because that’s all that Thomas Jefferson wanted, but the French, for a variety of reasons, offered this almost literally incredible deal. One…
