Chuck Schumer: Dems Will Deny GOP
A Quorum To Advance Barrett

Original Article

Posted By: JoElla Bee, 10/16/2020 11:13:53 AM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says that Democrats will not supply a quorum with which to advance the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Schumer defended this move, saying that Barrett’s nomination is “illegitimate, dangerous and unpopular.” There’s no point debating Schumer on these partisan claims. The question is whether the Democrats can block Barrett’s nomination through this ploy.I don’t think they can. A quorum in the full Senate is 51 members. In the Judiciary Committee it’s nine members including two from the minority party.

Turtle McConnell may have a lot of faults, one of which is accepting the "Paul Ryan Playbook on How to Keep Your Chamber Republican in 2018," because it sure looks like he's using it in the Senate in 2020. But give the devil his due on this one, he knows the Senate rules inside and out and this is going to work out well for the President, GOP, soon-to-be-Justice-Barrett, and America. Not so will for Crazie Mazie, Chuckie Schumer and their pals.

It is simply STUNNING how Schumer and the rest of the Dems are willing to destroy America just to regain their power. It's almost as if they don't care about We, The People, but only about themselves. I'm being sarcastic-of course they don't care about us. Does Pelosi care about the homeless in the streets of San Fran when she can eat $16 a pint of Jeni's ice cream...in her twin SubZero fridges, worth $24,000. God, please let the Republicans smash the Democrats in EVERY RACE this November. We'll then deal with the Republican traitor RINOs next.

At the end of the article the author says that a party trying to block the confirmation of a judge or justice by boycott would be "a sorry spectacle." The Democrats are getting very good at being sorry spectacles.

My neighbor, a retired Teacher and Democrat, loved Amy Comy Barret. She said she watched all of the Confirmation Hearings and she was so impressed with her! I don't think my Neighbor would be at all impressed with Slimy Chuck Schumer's latest threat. What a Guy! Threatening to kick this woman to the curb, like a BULLY! Nope! Chuckie, you are just confirming what a nasty guy you are! The fact that this confirmation WILL go forward, because the Votes are there to do it, would stop any DECENT person from doing dirty tricks just because they can, not because it would change the outcome! But then, we all know Schumer could never be mistaken for a Decent person!

@caveman...for the Senate 51 is a quorum. But for the Judiciary Committee a quorum requires 9 of which 2 are Democrats. There's a way around it... which presumably Mitch the Turtle knows. Bottom line: the nomination should go forward to a vote. And something needs to be done about that RINO Sasse.

A meaningless exercise. The Judiciary Committee quorum requires only 2 Democrats. They have been there all along for the hearings. They can’t very well boycott the vote on the committee’s recommendation to the Senate….which is just a recommendation. In the past they have been for or against or no recommendation at all. The Senate and only the Senate votes on the nominee and we have a quorum there. It only takes 51 members.

If tDemocrats block a quorum on Judiciary Committee, will the unconventional maneuvers needed to push this through give Mitt Romney a "principled" excuse to defect and kill the nomination? I suspect and fear Romney's been waiting for just such a chance.

The politicians who call themselves "Democrats" hate democracy. When they win an election, they over-reach. When they lose an election, as in 2016, they call it "illegitimate, dangerous, and unpopular." So of course they are betraying their oath of office and sabotaging the work of the U.S. Senate. So I don't call Democrats by their chosen name. Neither do I call them Liberals, because they are the most illiberal persons in our fair-minded country. Nor do I call them Progressives, because they are reactionary and regressive to the core of their being. I call them Leftist Fascists because today's Democrats and their black hooded street militia would make Mussolini blush with pride.

I’ve heard Lindsey Graham say he voted for the two women sitting on the Court right now. He didn’t agree with their philosophy, but he thought they were competent to be on the Court. That is what a senator should do. Too bad Schumer and the other dolts on the committee aren’t going to do that. It’s shameful what they’re doing to one of the most competent persons to ever sit on the Supreme Court. I hope most Americans see how callous they are.

WASHINGTON —  A group of prominent Christians from both sides of the aisle, including a past faith advisor to President Obama, is forming a political action committee designed to chip away at Christian support for President Trump in the final weeks of the 2020 campaign. The new super PAC, dubbed Not Our Faith, plans to roll out TV and digital ads focused on Christian voters — particularly the evangelical and Roman Catholic voters who helped Trump secure victory in 2016. Its first digital ad, set to run in the battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, takes sharp aim at Trump’s claim to a foothold with Christians. Correction*
