In Dallas. From videotape it appears that she regrwts little people losing eminent domain cases due to lack of resources, but is also upset that a rich person can fight and fight, and apparently get a settlement, because he has resources. From the tape it appears the issue is installation of a water pipe through the property, which seems like a straightforward eminent domain situation. So how did the rich guy win? Details are missing. Maybe the councilwoman wants it both ways. Sorry to take your land, but you always must acquiesce. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/06/dallas-city-council-angry-cant-just-take-mans-land/

More $$$ needed for Democratic party
Supposedly the Democratic Party spent $24 million in GA-6 election (I saw larger and smaller numbers). They lost. The party count in the House of Representatives is 238 Republicans and 193 Democrats (there are 4 vacancies which I will ignore). To regain control the Democrats will need to turn over 23 seats. 23 seats * $24 million = $500 million (rounding off) and that might not be enough. That will be a lot of fundraising.
A happy day at the Supreme Court
Good decision about hate speech exception to First Amendment. THERE ISN’T ONE. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/06/19/supreme-court-unanimously-reaffirms-there-is-no-hate-speech-exception-to-the-first-amendment/
GOP Baseball Shootings
I think our #resistance friends owe Rep. Scalisi and other victims both an apology and damages.
It is all how you spin it
Climate decision could accelerate damage to Trump properties in Florida, says the AP. I bet the reporters were chortling while writing the story. And if Trump had kept the US in the Paris Accords? Same story could be cast as another violation of the Emoluments Clause.
Fun quote: “So far, the threat of rising seas has not affected property values on Florida’s coast.” Maybe global warming is not such a threat?
What he said
M Trumble, in comment to this Althouse post. says exactly what I have been struggling to formulate. “Nothing will be revealed today. Were it possible to unseat Trump, anything remotely damaging would have come out months ago. They fired their bullets, threw all of the rocks, and are now clawing the ground for clods of dirt and spitting. And they think they are winning.” Bullseye.

Or so goes the allegation. Female genital mutilation. In Michigan. Islamic doctors. Young adolescent girls. Feminists quiet – where are the protests? Cowards.
