Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer rejects Trump judicial nominee based on RACE, what if Republicans pulled this with Obama
Chuck Schumer Democrat Senate Minority Leader rejected President Trump’s nominee for South Carolina federal judgeship not based on his qualifications but because he is white. Can you imagine if a Republican Senator rejected one of Obama’s judicial nominees because they were black or heaven forbid Hispanic? There would be demands across the board for his resignation.
The two South Carolina Senators have condemned the decision as well as Representative Trey Gowdy Republican Representative from Spartanburg.
Schumer the New York Democrat and obstructionist of the Senate told the body he Wednesday he would not support Marvin Quattlebaum for the vacancy on the U.S. District court in South Carolina.
Schumer said a vote for Quattlebaum would result in having a white man replace two African American nominees that Barack Hussein Obama put in place.
Schumer said he would not be a part of the Trump administration’s pattern of nominating white men.
“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer said.
“It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents,” he continued. “Having a diversity of views and experience on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, the Senate’s sole black Republican, pushed back on Schumer’s rationale and urged other Senate Democrats to instead address diversity issues by starting with their offices.
“Perhaps Senate Democrats should be more worried about the lack of diversity on their own staffs than attacking an extremely well-qualified judicial nominee from the great state of South Carolina,” Scott tweeted Thursday morning.
Schumer and other Democrats also argued that Republicans broke with a Judiciary Committee tradition that ultimately left this judicial seat vacant during parts of the Obama administration.
Known as the “blue slip” rule, senators had to submit a blue form voicing their support or disapproval of a judicial nominee from their home state. Schumer said South Carolina’s two Republican senators, however, failed to submit a blue slip for the two judges nominated by Obama.
Quattlebaum was ultimately confirmed Thursday on a 69-28 vote.
A partner in the Greenville office of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, Quattlebaum was president of the South Carolina Bar in 2011-12. As a student at the University of South Carolina’s School of Law, he served on the law review.
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., called Schumer’s vote against Quattlebaum “political correctness run amok.”
The Democrat Senate Minority Leader has proven that he is not a representative of the people. His hatred for President Trump is so strong that even after Trump offered amnesty to 3 times the amount of illegals as Barack Hussein Obama Schumer rejected the offer. Now the poor little DACA illegals will just have to go home to their shithole country.
Chuck Schumer gives a pitiful denial of voting against a Trump judicial nominee solely on the basis of him being WHITE
- Chuck Schumer gives a pitiful denial of voting against a Trump judicial nominee solely on the basis of him being white. Chuckie is the poster child for what is wrong in Washington DC. He is a racist and will not admit it. He has used the DACA issue to get votes and cares nothing about the poor little illegals just wants to use them.
Chuck Schumer is Ground Zero of the swamp.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked Schumer about comments he made that seemingly attacked a judicial nominee from President Trump for being white.
“Yeah, that was right-wing radio who never really tells the truth, distorting what I had said,” Schumer answered. “What I said is this — that Barack Obama had nominated, I think as early as 2013, two people for this seat. And our Republican senators from South Carolina blocked them with holding of the blue slip, which has been a tradition.”
“So this seat has been vacant for a long time, the two people nominated were African-Americans, and I said, ‘Now this fella is white, and we need the bench to have real diversity.”
“The president’s record in nominating people of color, even nominating women to the bench, I think the bench should look like America, and I think most Americans agree with that,” he continued. “And the fact they held up two people for so long and now wanted to get their fellow to come in made no sense, and compounding the injury was the lack of diversity on the bench.
Why should a judicial nominee look like America Chuckie? And if you look around especially where you probably live it is probably pretty white. You are a disgrace to Congress and a poster Senator for term limits.
Justice Department to open investigation into alleged FIFA abuses, it’s about time the Obama administration and Hillary were on hot seat
FISA abuses will finally be investigated by the Justice Department according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions said late Tuesday the Justice Department will be looking into abuses of the Foreign intelligence Surveillance Act.
President Trump has pressured Sessions for months to look into the abuses by the Obama administration and the campaign of Hillary Clinton. It has been established that the Clinton campaign paid for the Steele dossier, a foreign surveillance memo of made up dirt on the Trump campaign.
“Yes, it will be investigated,” Sessions told reporters at the court that oversees FISA warrants.
Sessions said an investigation it is the “appropriate thing” to do so, and that his department’s inspector general “will take that as one of the matters he’ll deal with.”
The Attorney General told Fox News on Sunday of the investigation and
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that this move will be supported.
“I think that’s the role of the Department of Justice, and we’re glad that they’re fulfilling that job,” she said.
Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!

President Trump is not happy already with the news tweeting “Why is A>G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the IG an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department? Disgraceful.
It seems like Trump has been fed up with Jeff Sessions for quite some time. Sessions appears to be part of the swamp. Trump may be giving him the benefit of the doubt. But I think the time has come to call Sessions in and say “your fired.”
San Diego State University professors say Farmers Markets are “white spaces” that contribute to the oppression of minorities
Two San Diego State University professors have criticized farmers markets for being “white spaces” . This is what I mean by saying the word racism or racist is being watered down. When snow, white Christmas, Halloween costumes, calling Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas, white flight, milk, the list goes on and on are racist it takes the attention off real racism.
The San Diego State University professors Pascale Joassart Marcelli and Fernando J. Bosco contributed a chapter to a new anthology making the point that farmers markets are “insidious” white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.
While farmers markets are often established as a way of fighting “food deserts” in low-income areas, the professors complain that 44 percent of San Diego farmers markets are located in census tracts with high levels of gentrification.
The two are geography professors at San Diego State University and they criticized the “whiteness of farmers markets” in a chapter for Just Green Enough a new anthology published by Routledge in December.

“Farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”
The anthology, which features contributions from a variety of professors, aims to highlight the harms of “environmental gentrification,” a process in which “environmental improvements lead to…the displacement of long-term residents.”
Farmers’ markets are one such environmental improvement that can lead to gentrification, Bosco and Joassart-Marcelli argue, saying farmers’ markets are “exclusionary” since locals may not be able to “afford the food and/or feel excluded from these new spaces.”
This social exclusion is reinforced by the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” and the “white habitus” that they can reinforce, the professors elaborate, describing farmers’ markets as “white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.
“Ultimately,” they conclude, countering gentrification “requires slow and inclusive steps that balance new initiatives and neighborhood stability to make cities ‘just green enough.’”
This is the socialist propaganda that is being taught at liberal universities and even high schools all across America. The press in America reports in cyclical fashion. 2017 has been the year to paint Trump and white men as the enemies of society. White men are the worst thing that ever happened to America. The latest at San Diego State University saying the most wholesome American tradition farmers markets are too white confirms American education is rooted in Socialism.
China Drowning Out critics in President term limit fight is perfect example of why we need to protect Second Amendment
China is drowning out critics of the effort to scrap the two-term limit for President Current President Xi Jinping is leading the effort to get rid of the regulation that limits the term a president can rule in China. It seems Xi Jinping has a Barack Hussein Obama complex and believes China cannot live without him and they need a President for life AKA Dictator.
As the gun control debate is raging in the US after the Parkland Florida school shooting students (if you actually believe 17 year olds who were having to be told not to eat tide pods are really organizing these protest) pushing the NeverAgain agenda including infringing on our second amendment right to bear arms. China is the perfect example of why we need protection against a tyrannical Government.
Individual gun ownership is nearly impossible in China and opposition to political policy is heavily regulated and squashed. Without the right to bear arms in China drowning out critics is common.
China is shocked at the move by XI Jinping to be President for life. The rubber-stamp National People’s Congress (NPC) is certain to endorse the move next week, meaning that Xi — already China’s most powerful leader in decades — can stay as president beyond 2023.
Li Datong, a former editor at the state-run China Youth Daily, posted a draft letter urging legislators to vote against the move — which would abolish term limits set in 1982 under Deng Xiaoping to prevent a return to the decades of chaos under Mao Zedong.
“It was the highest and most effective legal restriction meant to prevent autocracy or putting individuals above the party and the state,” said the letter. It was not sent to legislators but shared with hundreds of people in a private group on China’s WeChat phone messaging app.
THANK GOD FOR PRESIDENTIAL TERM LIMITS IN THE UNITED STATES
“Lifting the term limits of national leaders will be ridiculed by civilised nations all over the world and also sow the seeds of chaos for China,” said the text posted on Monday.
WeChat users trying to share screenshots of the letter saw their posts blocked.
Censors have scrambled to delete all dissenting comments on social media — even the word “disagree” is blocked — but users of the Twitter-like Weibo website kept speaking out Tuesday, two days after the party Central Committee announcement.
“So pathetic, we have 1.3 billion people, no one can resist,” wrote one user.
Another lamented the lack of political reform: “I once believed that I could see a president elected by one man, one vote in my lifetime.”
Drowning out critics is what Communist regimes do most effectively. This is what Barack Hussein Obama would have done without a second amendment. The founding fathers were genius knowing that we the United States might someday have tyrannical leaders like Barack Hussein Obama and we might need protection from the very Government that serves us. The Government that failed at every level in Parkland Florida.
Just hours after the passing of beloved former first lady Barbara Bush was announced tenured Fresno State University professor Randa Jarrar had very insensitive to say the least words for the deceased.
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F*** outta here with your nice words.” The beached whale professor then bragged that she could not be fired.
The Socialist Professor went on to brag about having tenure and the University could not fire her and bragged about her $100,000 per year salary. She also expressed her wish for the entire Bush family to die. Jarrar must have had second thoughts about the wisdom of the tweets they were quickly made private.
Fresno State President Joseph Castro sent out a statement late Tuesday saying, “On behalf of Fresno State, I extend my deepest condolences to the Bush family on the loss of our former First Lady, Barbara Bush.
We share the deep concerns expressed by others over the personal comments made today by Professor Randa Jarrar, a professor in the English Department at Fresno State. Her statements were made as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State.
Professor Jarrar’s expressed personal views and commentary are obviously contrary to the core values of our University, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a sincere commitment to mutual understanding and progress.”
Randa Jarrar is what you call a IYI Intellectual yet idiot. Is it possible for liberals to disagree without being violently angry about it? While I regard Slick Willy and Barack Hussein Obama as two of the worst Presidents ever to serve the United States of America I would not go to Twitter hours after their deaths to dance on their graves. Social media has done one thing for sure it has given idiots such as this professor a forum to showcase their stupidity.
On the day of Martin Luther King Jr’s death students at the New School of New York are demanding POC spaces. For those of you not familiar with PC terms that is People of Color. The students want to escape the glare of white supremacy. Correct me if I am wrong but isn’t this type of behavior what the Civil Rights movement was all about? Didn’t segregation end decades ago? Now the snowflakes of this generation want to have a space to be………segregated.
According to Campus reform students tweeted the following . “Students of color at The New School deserve a space. And not just a space that exists once a week or whenever our overtly white administration decides they want more diversity favors. We deserve a permanent space,” another student, going by “trashgawdd.
A petition from titled “Open letter for Student of Color space at The New School” was sent to administrators from SOC Weekly, Autonomous South Asian Collective, La XENTE, Queer Collective, and the Black Student Union.
According to the petition, administrators at The New School’s Eugene Lang College held a forum Friday “to discuss the coming renovations to Eugene Lang College buildings,” which was attended by a contingent of student activists demanding that the administration “designate space for people of color in the new Lang remodel, as well as make good on their past promises to improve the functionality of the Social Justice Hub for organizing purposes.”
Addressing Eugene Lang Dean Stephanie Browner, the petition states that “We are writing to once again articulate the needs of students of color,” claiming that “these are conversations that students have previously brought to the table without any serious action from Lang College.”
“We ask that The New School take our suggestions into account to either convert currently under-utilized space for students of color-only use and if not, to construct a student of color-only space within the upcoming Lang remodel,” the petition reads, adding, “We ultimately would like a dedicated, exclusive space for students of color.”
“The New School doesn’t have a space dedicated to students of color. A space where we can organize. A space for us to have privacy under the errant white gaze at our school,” the statement continues, insisting that “requesting a POC-only space is not returning to segregation because it is not denying white people any opportunities.”
“White spaces in the past, and even today, exist in order to oppress and reject poc. “POC-only spaces are responses to these spaces,” the statement claims, labeling the POC-only space, “a place for poc to exist without the pressures of white supremacy.”
Correct me if I am wrong but wasn’t the Civil Rights Movement fought at least partially to end segregation? This school is a predominately white school so it makes sense that large areas of the school will be pretty much……..white. People of color in the past fought for inclusion. The stupid snowflakes of today want SEGREGATION. This seems similar to the march for our lives movement of stupid students wanting their second amendment rights taken away.
San Diego State University offers 1 credit course on Constitutional Grounds to remove President Trump from office
According to Campus Reform San Diego State University will be offering a 1 credit course on constitutional grounds to remove President Trump from office.The only required reading for the course is a book called “The Case for Impeachment,” though the course description indicates that the class will also explore the possibility of removal under the 25th Amendment.
San Diego State University is offering a course dedicated exclusively to the topic of removing Donald Trump from office.
The one-unit course–“Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?”–will be offered in March and is set to be taught by Professor John Joseph Cleary. The required text for the course is Allan Lichtman’s The Case for Impeachment, a book published in response to Donald Trump’s election that advocates for the President’s removal from office.
“Focus will be on the two constitutional grounds: impeachment and removal (25th Amendment), and the possible charges of the independent counsel, the powers of the president,” and “a history of the creation of [the presidency] and the comparison of divine right and rule of law leadership.”
The curriculum will also address “grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment,” such as “conflict of interests, foreign emoluments, climate change, racism, religious bias, improper influence, nepotism, and a host of crimes, including conspiracy, false statements, and obstruction of justice.”
The course will be offered through SDSU’s Criminal Justice program which is a part of the school’s College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts.
The course was one of four one-credit courses featured in an email sent to students Monday, which advertised them as a way to get the last credit necessary for a degree for just $221. The courses do, however, require students to attend two marathon 15-hour class sessions spaced roughly one week apart.
Prof. Cleary did not immediately respond to Campus Reform‘s request for comment. This article will be updated if and when a reply is received.
San Diego State University last fall had a professor say Farmers Markets are “white spaces” that contribute to the oppression of minorities. It is unbelievable the garbage that these liberal Universities are feeding our students. The lefts rage is so inflamed regarding President Trump. What would have happened if a University offered a course on Constitutional grounds of impeaching Barack Hussein Obama?
