Re: “San Francisco judge blocks executive order defunding "sanctuary cities"

Not "cities", golfer. There was some discussion of Title IX funds and the possibility that schools which didn't adhere to federal standards MIGHT face lawsuits and the possibility of judgments against them.

Peruse the NYTimes round-up on the subject:…

To be fair, you have to admit ANY school, or for that matter any entity, faces such a possibility, and for virtually any reason. All that is needed is a plaintiff and an attorney.
Further, I don't recall, nor can I find any indication of unilateral action on this issue by any federal entity of the Obama administration, presidential or otherwise.
The primary difference between the Obama and Trump is that Obama understands the rule of law while Trump understands the rule of Trump.

Re: “Later today: More on the matter of Judge Wendell Griffen

An aside to the primary topic of judge shopping (I think that's the right term):
Is the "judicial disciplinary committee" that will consider Judge Griffen's situation the same one that shook their collective fingers at "the drunk judge" and told him he shouldn't do that again?
Let's see. On one hand, we have a public expression of a firmly held belief, one allowed by the Constitution of the United States as I recall. On the other, we have a judge with a drunk driving conviction and assorted other related offenses, a number of which were forgiven, shall we say, before his court appearance.

Re: “Four years after installation, solar panels are connected to VA

Shhhh. Don't let Empor... er, President Trump hear about this. He may throw a few folks to the dogs (or was it hogs?) for undercutting a good old coal fired utility.
Heard the latest from China? To get rid of the smog that often blankets much of the eastern portion of that country, they may refine coal into natural gas for home heating and cooking uses.
Now that's an idea that will prevent premature deaths due to excessive pollution. Great idea, right?
Just ignore those naysayers who point out the process of making and using gas made from coal will produce twice the amount of carbon dioxide, a major boogeyman in the production of greenhouse gases.
Eh ... who cares if it gets gets positively toasty around here? Uhm, you haven't invested in a coastal getaway, have you?

Re: “Judicial Discipline admonishes Judge over DWI, reckless driving conviction

"Committing a violation of the law, however slight ..."

HOWEVER SLIGHT? Seems there's laws and then there's "laws".
Color me surprised that the police officers involved weren't admonished for arresting the poor fella, er, judge. Or were they?

Re: “Trump's threats to Obamacare subsidies are bad political news for...Republicans

Oops, sorry. A sure-she's-not-loved-enough-cat walked across the keyboard and I thought she just wiped everything out rather than posting it.
What I intended to add? As far as I know, Trump hasn't ordered any specific killings, at least intentionally.
BTW, the same cat is now working over my arms, I guess trying to tell me I didn't get clean enough when I showered.

Re: “Trump's threats to Obamacare subsidies are bad political news for...Republicans

Has anyone else reached this conclusion -- that Donald Trump and Kim Jung Un are brothers under the skin? Both want what they want and aim to get it no matter the cost to others.
Oh, okay, maybe Trump's not q

Re: “Donald Trump threatens to shut down his own government if he doesn't get taxpayer funding for wall

The "unnamed source" is as crazy as a bessie bug. And ignorant.
I wonder if he's now contemplating to put a contract out on the New Yorker writer who promised to use him as an unnamed source, then used the direct quote, I just want my wall and my ice agents.
My, my, my -- I wouldn't put it past him. I wonder if he's got the names of one or two of Putin's enforcers.
