Senate Republicans Are Failing Us…
Big Time

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 3/12/2021 1:02:25 PM

The Democratic Party stood virtually united “resisting” Trump for four years. Their stalwart opposition was ruthless and unwavering. It had been my hope that if there was any lasting legacy of Trump in the Republican Party it would be that he taught them not just to not walk away from a fight but to actually fight back.Yet again, I find myself disappointed. On Wednesday the Senate confirmed racial conspiracy theorist Marcia Fudge as HUD secretary, and Merrick Garland as attorney general. Fudge was confirmed 66-34, and Garland 70-30. How did Fudge get sixteen Republicans to vote for her confirmation? And How did Garland get twenty?

This was why Trump was elected in 2016 and 2020 (without the steal).

It's very simple. The Demon-Rats mastered the art of election theft this past election -- with no consequences. They will never be a minority in the House or Senate, or lose the presidency, again!!! Sure, they will still allow a few Republi-Can'ts to win to keep up the illusion of there still being a 2-party system. But it's not. So the Republi-Can'ts that have figured this out want to keep their power and wealth, so they are going to do everything they can to appease their new Demon-Rat overlords!!! Frame it from that perspective, and it makes perfect sense!!!

It was ever thus - Democrats fight Republican SCOTUS and cabinet nominees with a scorched-earth tactics. Republicans say "a President deserves the cabinet he picks" or "he's replacing a liberal with a liberal, so we'll let it go" and confirm the nominees without even a whimper. That's how we ended up with hacks like the "wise Latina" and Elena Kagen and extremist crazies like the "notorious RBG" on the Supreme Court.

The Republican brand is hopelessly damaged. President Trump should have started a third party. Even with his endorsement, the brand is so bad, it’ll be hard to get people out. Especially if 2020 is allowed to stand as is.

Look at just one aspect of what occurred during the Trump era. Trump got to nominate three judges to open seats on the Supreme Court. Trump had to depend on McConnell and other wimpy Republicans in the US Senate to make the recommendations to him as to who should be nominated to fill the three empty seats on Supreme Court. The wimpy Senate Republicans then made their recommendations to Trump and he nominated three judges who were then confirmed by the wimpy Senate Republicans. Then what happened with those three Trump nominees, when the going got tough after the November election they ran for the hills and refused to take any cases relating to ballot and election fraud. Obviously scared that the Democrats who now control the US Congress will either pack the Court with Democrat judges or even impeach them if they were to come up with any sort of decision supporting Trump or the wimpy Republicans.

You just haven't realized there is no Republican party. That party is filled with RINO.s and Independents pretending to be Republicans. No Republican governor nor Senator stood up for Trump in the election, none, not one. So, we go Fogbound Joe.

Yes Senate Republicans have and still are failing us. The reason is that at least half of them belong to the Mitch McConnell cult that is not made up of conservatives but RHINOs who stand for nothing but ensuring that they keep their position even if it means selling out the country. The 20 that voted for Garland are the same old names. Until they are gone, we have no opposition to the Democrats.

The polling, most especially out of Britain — or is it “England” or “Great Britain”? — has made it pretty clear that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s weekend appearance with Billionaire Race-Hoaxer Oprah Winfrey was a big mistake. You can see the polling here, here, and here. But it is these numbers that are the most telling of just how badly this interview backfired: A new YouGov poll, released on Friday, revealed that following the couple’s Oprah Winfrey interview, the couple has fallen very much out of favour with the British public.(Snip) Harry and Meghan damaged themselves with the general public. A ton of goodwill, especially towards Harry, has been squandered.
The Biggest COVID-19 Vaccine Skeptics?

What do frontline health care workers and first responders know about COVID-19 vaccines that politicians and their public health advisers don’t? According to a January analysis by Gallup, 51 percent of health care workers and first responders polled in December were unconvinced of the merits of getting vaccinated, even if the vaccine “was free, available, FDA approved and 90% effective.” Gallup found these results especially concerning since those at highest risk of exposure to COVID-19—the professionals required to meet America’s health, safety, and critical economic needs whom the National Academies of Engineering, Science and Medicine define as “Tier 1A workers”—were the likeliest to refuse vaccination (34 percent).

Carteresque Speech Is Embarrassing

It’s embarrassing. Our corrupt, partisan media are embarrassing. Thursday night, President Joe Biden gave a speech to mark the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization’s delayed acknowledgment of the COVID-19 pandemic that China unleashed upon the world. The media swooned. The speech was delivered off a Teleprompter by a man who wasn’t inspiring even when he had better command of his faculties decades ago. It was ungracious, going out of its way to refuse to acknowledge his predecessor’s Operation Warp Speed, the only pandemic response that has worked. And it worked so well: throwing money at private developers and getting rid of  regulatory hurdles to do the impossible of obtaining vaccines within a few months.

Mrs. Clinton, who knows a thing or two about phoniness, praised Meghan Markle’s decision to speak of her “mental health” before tens of millions of her very closest counselors. Mrs. Clinton said it was brave of her, but brave was not the word for it; exhibitionist would have been better, together, perhaps, with scheming, opportunist, histrionic, self-serving, egotistical, and shallow, amongst other things. If there were a Nobel Prize for self-pity, Ms. Markle would have been a strong contender—rather like Mrs. Clinton herself. The very idea of mental health as being anything other than the absence of raving madness (which undoubtedly exists) is an invitation to superficiality.

Donald Trump has said he wants to settle political scores with the Washington establishment, and since he’s well-known among his supporters to keep his promises, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to know that he’s already hard at work keeping this one.Since emerging from the post-election, post-impeachment self-imposed exile, the former president has reentered the political field bigly with the intention of remaking as much of the political landscape in his image as possible.That largely means endorsing individual candidates for office, which we’re sure he’ll back up with personal appearances and rallies with candidates when the 2022 and 2024 elections draw nearer.
