about an open liberal outlook, suggesting he didn't want to dramatically cut immigration, for example, which is certainly what others in UKIP wanted to do. Perhaps the differences were inevitable. Interesting to see whether he decides to rejoin the Conservative party. For now, he says he is.

Leicestershire County Council leader Nick Rushton has described the Liberal Democrats as slimeballs in a speech to Tory councillors and candidates. Coun Rushton rounded on his rivals ahead of the May 4 election as he launched the party's manifesto today. He said of the Lib Dems, who make up the council's main opposition group: They are slimeballs. They will just lie. They lie and they cheat and they have a policy for every side of the road. The Liberals are...

The point is, the political capital starts to run out. If you can't get it through, both sides, the conservative wing of the Republican party and the liberal wing, they become involved, they.

“So I dont really know what’s up based on the performance of this guy for 22 hours,” Grassley said of Gorsuch. “It’s going to be hard for people to want to vote against him, and I wonder if this threat of a filibuster isnt a smokescreen.” Schumer has also pushed for a delay in the confirmation process, given the ongoing FBI investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The move was cheered by liberal groups. But Schumer’s tactics arent shared by some Democrats who remain undecided on Gorsuch. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia appears highly uncomfortable with blocking Gorsuch. Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the party's vice presidential nominee last year, said he would “decide over the weekend” how he would vote on the judge. A potential change to Senate rules is the domain of leadership, he added, so I dont think that’s going to affect my view of his candidacy on the merits.

The latest polls generally show Yesh Atid (“There Is a Future” in Hebrew), leading Netanyahu’s conservative Likud party by about four seats in parliamentary elections. Of course, no one yet knows when those elections will be and, given the fiendishly complicated politics that come with trying to assemble a governing coalition in Israel’s multiparty system, even an outright win for Lapid’s party wouldnt necessarily guarantee he would become prime minister, given that Israel’s increasingly influential ultra-Orthodox parties have said they refuse to participate in any coalition led by the more secular-minded, socially liberal Lapid. Still, events are moving surprisingly quickly. After a budget deal last year, most knowledgeable Israeli political observers had expected Netanyahu’s government to last at least as long as the agreement, until 2018.

Mary Landrieu (D-La.), a member of the Gang of 14. No Democrats have announced their support for Gorsuch yet. Under current Senate rules, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will need at least eight Democratic votes. In the minds of some senators, that gives Democrats some leverage over McConnell — though the GOP leader could move to get rid of the 60-vote threshold if Democrats obstruct Gorsuch. We don't need to be taking a deal, said a senior Republican aide. Some Democrats believe McConnell is loathe to change Senate rules on a majority vote. Doing so would allow Democrats to more easily confirm liberal judges the next time the party wins the White House and Senate. It’s also not clear McConnell could get 50 of his 52 members to agree to eradicate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees, a step that would move the Senate even further toward a majority-rule, House of Representatives-style body.

Australia’s new prime minister is a wealthy man,” writes Eva Mellors for Australia’s Money Morning . “Last night, much was made of the fact that he doesnt need to be in public life to have power and financial reward. He’s already amassed quite a fortune. Even before he entered politics. Various sources estimate his net worth at between $180 million and $200 million.” So what Australians are now dealing with is a classic case of a couple of one-percenters with a whole lot to gain from doing favors for their industry buddies assuming political office and steering public policy towards this end. It’s a win-win for the profit-industrial complex, and a lose-lose for the general public, especially when such policies involve forcing dangerous vaccination jabs on people under duress. “In Australia it doesnt matter whether you choose to believe in the Labor Party or Liberal Party, because they both have ties to royal hegemony, industry, and pharma,” adds The Mind Unleashed .

" Gorsuch responded that he speaks for himself, and not the president or anyone else. Democrats have portrayed Gorsuch as a pro-corporate jurist who would tilt the legal playing field against ordinary Americans, and continued to press him on cases in which he sided with large companies over their employees. Judicial nominees, both liberal and conservative, historically have refused to allow themselves to be pinned down on pending legal issues during their confirmation hearings, and Gorsuch continued to do the same. Republicans hold a slim two-seat Senate majority and would need eight Democrats to support Gorsuch should a filibuster necessitate a three-fifths vote to advance his nomination in the full chamber. Democrats are under intense pressure from progressive activists to oppose Gorsuch, but Republicans have the option of changing Senate rules to eliminate the minority party’s ability to block Supreme Court nominees should Democrats vote as a block against him.
