Whether the future belongs to John Roberts, 65, or to Elena Kagan, 60, depends on political currents as much as on demography. But I’d put my money on Kagan. — PolitiTweet.org

The power of Kagan’s Seila Law dissent is such that it is bound to prevail in the long run over the position concocted by the majority — which, as she shows, proves the wisdom of the Framers in not leaving judges with the task of second-guessing how Congress structures agencies. — PolitiTweet.org

Apart from its utterly devastating substance, Justice Kagan’s Seila Law v. CFPB dissent is brilliantly written as a conversation with the reader. E.g.: “The question here, which by now you’re well equipped to answer, is . . .” or “First, as I’m afraid you’ve heard before, . . .” — PolitiTweet.org

Justice Kagan’s dissent in Seila Law v. CFPB leaves not a shred of Chief Justice Roberts’ analysis standing. There’s no good answer to her question: “How could it be that this opinion is a dissent?” It’s the most devastating opinion I can recall reading. Probably ever. — PolitiTweet.org

26 US House delegations are now in GOP hands despite Dem control of the House. But it’s the House we elect this Nov 3 & swear in on Jan 3 that will pick the next president on Jan 6 if nobody gets 270 electoral votes on Dec 14. So we’d better ID & focus on the key House seats NOW! — PolitiTweet.org

The only thing worse than a US president patting Putin on the butt for paying Contractor Azizi $100k for each American soldier Azizi kills in Afghanistan? Oh, maybe if that president stood to gain financially by letting Putin get away with those contract killings? But wait . . . — PolitiTweet.org

It didn’t bother Trump when his best bud the Saudi Prince chopped WaPo reporter #Khashoggi to pieces or when his idol Erdogan slaughtered our Kurdish allies. Is it really a surprise that he’s OK with his bff Putin paying $100k for each US troop’s head he leaves on Afghan soil? — PolitiTweet.org

Trump: A “perfect” record, not one black judge among the 53 he has appointed to the federal appeals courts! He probably thinks that proves black lawyers aren’t as good. His racism is undeniable. https://t.co/LdnDS7Qj54 — PolitiTweet.org

The number of confirmed new Coronavirus cases in U.S. topped 50,000 per day for the first time on July 1, and 45 of the 50 states have seven-day averages of new infections higher than they did last week. Trump: Nothing to see here. It’s all because we’ve gotten too good at math. — PolitiTweet.org

There are 203 more days in which we’ll suffer under a president more loyal to Russia than the U.S. — unless Senate Republicans signal to the House that they’re finally ready to save the Republic by conducting a real rather than phony impeachment trial and the House does its duty. — PolitiTweet.org

A Russian GRU unit evidently paid Taliban killers $100,000 per dead American — and Trump keeps kissing Putin’s ass. This would be unfathonable if it weren’t so characteristic of Trump’s loyalty to Putin and disloyalty to the United States of America. https://t.co/MYxWoaT0Rp — PolitiTweet.org

After months of anti-mask messaging, Trump finally reversed himself today. “I’m all for masks,” he said, adding that he would wear one if he were in a crowded room and noting that he had a black one on recently. “I sort of liked the way I looked.” To Donnie, all is vanity. — PolitiTweet.org

Sad but true. No need to get hung up (yet, anyway) over whether Trump’s treachery literally crosses the line into “treason.” Either way, it’s beyond dispute that he’s not working for the American people but for himself and his foreign masters. — PolitiTweet.org
