A Once-in-a-Century Climate ‘Anomaly’ Might Have Made World War I Even Deadlier

(John Finney Photography/Moment/Getty Images) An abnormally bad season of weather may have had a significant impact on the death toll from both World War I and the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, according to new research, with many more lives being lost due to torrential rain and plummeting temperatures. Through a detailed analysis of an ice…

Sean Hannity claims Dems ‘put all their eggs in the debate basket’ ahead of first Biden-Trump showdown

Joe Biden's campaign has "put all their eggs in the debate basket" after the Democratic nominee kept a low profile for much of the summer, Sean Hannity claimed Monday.“I believe his campaign team – they are seeing what we all see,” said the “Hannity” host, who noted that the former vice president's campaign wrapped up its public events…

Tucker: Amy Coney Barrett ‘represents everything that made this a great country,’ so Dems ‘despise her’

Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett is causing an uproar among Democrats and according to Tucker Carlson, her happy family is what’s driving them crazy.“Democrats know Amy Coney Barrett’s life refutes the lies they have pushed on the rest of us for decades, [so] they must destroy her personally,” the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host said…

Hillary Clinton suggested that Senate Republicans are rushing to confirm President Trump’s pending Supreme Court nominee for one singular purpose: to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“Ultimately this fight, it seems to me, is about health care,” Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said Wednesday during the 2020 Texas Tribune Festival. “Health care is literally before the court.”

“Trump and the Republicans led by Mitch McConnell have been trying to get rid of health care for years ever since President Obama passed the Affordable Care Act,” she continued. “Let’s be sure we understand: What the Republicans are doing is rushing an appointment to the court to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip away health care for many millions of Americans …The Democrats need to make that case.”

GINSBURG DEATH CASTS FRESH UNCERTAINTY ON THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT’S FUTURE

Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s death on Friday at age 87 cast new uncertainty on a White House-backed lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act, the landmark health care law also known as ObamaCare. Supreme Court justices are slated to hear oral arguments on Nov. 10, one week after the presidential election.

Ginsburg had previously voted to uphold the law alongside Chief Justice John Roberts and the court’s three other liberal justices. Supporters of the law hoped that Roberts would join the court’s liberal bloc to uphold the law again.

But the ideological make-up of the court could shift from 5-4 to 6-3 in favor of conservatives now that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., appears to have secured enough votes to confirm Trump’s nominee. It’s still unclear whether the vote could come before the November presidential election, or in the lame-duck session that takes place after the election but before the new Congress starts.

PELOSI ACCUSES TRUMP OF RUSHING TO FILL SUPREME COURT VACANCY TO REPEAL OBAMACARE

Democrats have criticized the decision to fast-track the nominee, noting that it marks a reversal from 2016 when McConnell refused to hold a Senate vote on Merrick Garland, who was nominated to the court by former President Barack Obama after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. McConnell held the seat open until after the election and inauguration of Trump in 2017. Justice Neil Gorsuch was nominated and later confirmed in April 2017.

McConnell and other GOP senators contend this year is unlike 2016 because the same party controls both the White House and the Senate.

Clinton urged Democrats to frame the election and the fight for the Supreme Court over health care, claiming the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — which has infected more than 6 million Americans, the most in the world, and killed more than 200,0000 — has left “many, many more” living with preexisting conditions. If the court strikes down Obamacare, Clinton said, those people may not be eligible for an affordable health-care plan.

BIDEN WARNS FAST TRACKING SCOTUS NOMINATION WILL PLUNGE NATION ‘DEEPER INTO THE ABYSS’

“This could not be more diabolical,” she said. “And I think that Democrats need to be absolutely clear that any vote for any Republican is literally a vote to cost you money to make your health care more expensive and maybe to eliminate the possibility you’ll be able to afford it at all.”

The ultimate outcome of the lawsuit will affect millions of Americans, and the repeal of the decade-old law could leave up to 32 million people without health insurance by 2026, according to a Congressional Budget Office report from 2017 about the effects of repealing ObamaCare.
