Magical sparkle powers – a sparkle too far?

suesspiciousminds

Regular readers will know that when I read the phrase “The Court’s powers under the inherent jurisdiction are theoretically limitless” it makes me bristle, and hence my coining the name “magical sparkle powers” for the use of these, to remind ourselves that the Court is effectively inventing powers for itself out of thin air.

As is established law, Princess Kenny MAY use her magical sparkle powers to get the Black Friday Bundaroo

The problem I have with it is not that the Court have used the inherent jurisdiction as a way to solve a particularly thorny legal problem on an individual case, it is that this then gets used as an authority for “well, we could do THAT with our magical sparkle powers, so THIS is only a further stride along that path” and then THIS gets used as authority for taking another stride to THE OTHER. It is the…

  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the stock market will tank if the GOP tax bill is not passed during an interview on a podcast.
  • Mnuchin also “absolutely guaranteed” the tax bill would be on President Trump’s desk by early December.
  • He also addressed the estate tax repeal, cutting taxes for the rich, and eliminating the state and local tax deduction.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the key to maintaining the strength of the stock market is the passage of President Donald Trump and GOP leaders’ tax reform package.

On the Politico Money podcast with Ben White, Mnuchin said that the markets has “baked into it, reasonably high expectations” for a significant corporate tax cut, helping to boost stocks to the recent all-time highs.

Conversely, said Mnuchin, if the tax bill were to fail it would take out that support system for the…

CARACAS (AFP) – Venezuela’s opposition said its newly-elected governors would refuse to participate Wednesday in a swearing in ceremony before the pro-government Constituent Assembly, which it does not recognize.The Democratic Union Roundtable (MUD) said it would not allow its five governors to be subjected to “the blackmail of the fraudulent Constituent Assembly” after President Nicolas Maduro threatened to remove them from office if they refused.

“We will only be sworn in before God and the respective legislative councils and not before the fraudulent Constituent Assembly,” the MUD said in a statement shortly before a special swearing-in session convened at the legislative palace.

The opposition had previously said it would not participate but doubts remained until shortly before the ceremony because of internal divisions.

Another Hollyweird project to Boycott: Facebook’s “Five Points” with Kerry Washington producing

Fellowship of the Minds

kerry washington Kerry Washington promoting abortion on her TV show Scandal

Kerry Washington has only one perspective: That of a rabid proggie. From the Daily Beast (in 2016):

“Four years ago, acclaimed actress Kerry Washington penned a stirring op-ed for The Daily Beast about whyAmerican women should support the reelection of President Barack Obama.

PresidentObama knows the importance of women’s rights and women’s health. He was raised by a single mom, and he has been surrounded by smart, strong women ever since—he’s married to one and he’s a father of two. So for our president, women’s issues aren’t just political, they’re personal for him as well,” she wrote.

On Friday night, less than two months away from the general election, a pregnant Washington made an appearance on HBO’s late-night talk show Real Time with Bill Maher in order to make another plea to American women: vote for…
