Court

Original Article

Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined forces in Brooklyn on Sunday to issue a “fervent plea” that Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court remain vacant until after the November presidential election.Speaking from the late justice’s alma matter, James Madison High School in Midwood, Ocasio-Cortez said Dems need to use “every tool at our disposal” to block a Senate confirmation hearing for any potential replacement nominated by President Trump.“We need to make sure we mobilize on an unprecedented scale to ensure this vacancy is reserved for the next president,” she said.

By “tool,” they mean muck and mayhem and destruction. Love of power more than love of country. WE need a central counter-planning committee.

With President Trump appointing a new justice, the democrat party loses an election boost for their party. They have nothing to campaign on after she is confirmed. They are in the panic mood and I'm loving every minute.

AOC is such a moronic tool! FTA: ...if you don’t want big, powerful, wealthy special interests to turn the clock back 100 years' These Libtard commies use that phrase the way people used to try to scare two year olds with 'the Boogie man's gonna get you!'

Tool = every underhanded dirty trick. We know them. We know they are lawless, ruthless and feel that the end justifies the means. Democrats are up against a force they have not yet encountered before. This President and the vast majority of the American people have had enough of their shenanigans. Clearly, their goal is to destroy this country and they are going to do it by force, if necessary. Americans are just not going to have it. We have watched as they have destroyed cities with their temper tantrums and we are fed up. If Republicans do what is right, legal and dutiful, they will confirm the President’s nominee. If not, we will be pushed into dangerous waters by a few contrary Republicans who abandoned their oaths of office. The Court must be fully equipped before the election in order to render whatever decision is necessary. A 4/4 split could throw us in a Constitutional Crisis. All the Republican contrarians must think long and hard. This is not your granddaddy’s nomination. The Republic hangs in the balance as you dither and obstruct. Do your jobs!

So the former bartender is issuing threats along with Chuckie Schumer. Well, we'd better back right down in the face of all their tools (two of those tools were speaking) and because an old partisan's dying wish was to suspend the U.S. Constitution so the "new" president could appoint her successor. Too bad the new president will be Donald J. Trump.

Everything that Taco Barbie and Princess Polygrip do to obstruct the SCOTUS nomination is just further proof that the Dems only care about their power and nothing else. They would rather see the country burn than watch Trump enact his agenda. They offer no solutions, no compromises, but instead make threats and spout innuendo. The Democrat Party should be placed in the dustbin of history and voted completely out of office. We need at least a 2 party system, but both parties have to advocate good for the country, not themselves. And the Democrats only care about themselves.

If they cannot get rid of Trump during the election, the Democrat's next priority would be to steal the Senate and keep the House. There are many elections the Democrats want to steal. If the Democrats get both chambers of Congress, they can change the Supreme Court, and maybe remove the President.

It is way past time for congress to rein in the power of the courts. This appointment should be no more important than any other. But because so much power has been ceded to the courts it looms gigantic and even threatens to be used as a casus belli in the coming civil insurrection. The power of the courts must be reduced.

AOC has zero influence on this matter and Schumer has very little. The media can’t help. No one cares anymore about them. They will need to go after Republicans that will vote on this and either blackmail them or make it worth their while to vote this down. I’m not saying that couldn’t happen.

They haven't found the next Christine Blasey Ford yet? They need more time to find a bunch of men to accuse any woman nominee of sexual abuse? Orange Man Bad needs to give the Marxists more time? All the nominees are racists, homophobes, and right wing KKK extremists but the Marxists need a few weeks to get all their witnesses stories to match? There's a single mother black woman who lost everything because of the evil, extremist nominees legal decision but they have to find the right single mother black woman associated with each possible nominee? They have to coach all the senate judiciary committee witnesses harmed by the nominee to end each statement to make it sound like a question?

The leftist fascists' favorite tool is to threaten the families of their political opponents. Schumer and his flying monkeys will threaten Judge Barretts' 7 children and try to blackmail her into withdrawing her name from the list of potential nominees. They will besiege the homes of key Republicans and send death threats to their families. They will injure whom they must in order to preserve abortion on demand even after delivery.

These clowns prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Constitution means nothing to them or the demoslut party. It's an impediment to their goal of gaining power by any means and turning the country communist. I'm guessing just hearing the national anthem turns their stomachs as does the sight of the U.S. flag.

But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel. This good news for the world was bad news for the media.
