Lindsey Graham on Dems' threat to pack the Supreme Court

Packing the US Supreme Court didn't work for Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 19830, even though he enjoyed a massive majority in the US Senate.

But leave it to leftists to pursue a failed idea.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has more.

CNN leaves bubble, finds strong Trump support in Minnesota for 2020

Amid the surprise wins by Donald Trump in the former Blue Wall states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, is that the president came very close to winning Minnesota too.

If Trump had prevailed, failing Illinois would have been the only Midwestern state to throw its support behind Hillary Clinton. But that's another story for another time.

Meanwhile, CNN left its leftist cocoon to discuss the strong support Trump enjoys in Minnesota, which has not backed a Republican for president since 1972.

Israel to block Squad members Omar and Tlaib from entering country over BDS support

Israel knows who its enemies are.

From the New York Post:
Israel has apparently decided to bar Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country on Friday after fierce debates on the contentious matter involving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and various ministers, according to a report Thursday.

The reason cited for their ban is reportedly “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS,” a reference to the anti-Israel boycott movement, according to the Times of Israel, which cited a report by local Channel 12.

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri made the decision to bar the US lawmakers from entering the country on Friday, according to the report.

The freshman lawmakers — the first two Muslim women elected to Congress and two of Israel’s sharpest critics — have voiced support for the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement against the Jewish state.
Fox News is reporting that this news is official.

Study: Taxes too high for Chicago casino to be profitable

Former US Steel plant, one of the
proposed casino sites
Here is more proof that Chicago, which has one Republican alderman and hasn't had a GOP mayor since 1931, can't do anything right.

From PBS Chicago:
An onerous tax structure would virtually kill any chance that a Chicago casino operator could make a profit – and therefore kill off the prospect of a casino in the city, period – despite an ability to make massive amounts of money. That’s the conclusion of the Chicago Casino Feasibility Study, commissioned by the city and the Illinois Gaming Board to determine how a casino would fare at each of five potential city locations.

In early June, the Illinois General Assembly passed a massive expansion of gaming in the state, including authorizing a license for six new casinos, in Chicago, the south suburbs, Waukegan, Danville, Rockford and Walker’s Bluff in southern Illinois. Alone among them, the law put an extra “privilege” tax on adjusted gross receipts (AGR) of the Chicago location.

“The current regulatory construct, namely the highest effective gaming tax and fee structure in the US, makes any casino project – regardless of location – generally not financially feasible,” the report reads.

With a more forgiving tax and financial structure, the report concludes that a Chicago casino could potentially generate almost twice the profit of Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, which is currently the state’s best performing casino, generating $441.8 million in 2018.
The study ripped the city's proposed sites for the gambling hall, most of them are in remote and dangerous neighborhoods.
