Dem’s petulant political agenda ricochets as Trump proceeds
Following the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, speculation about her replacement on the U.S. Supreme Court has suddenly spiked, vying in stature with the Nov. 3 presidential election. The two are undeniably intertwined.
Democrats are apoplectic over the prospect of President Trump doing his duty and naming a replacement. They are banking on the “Harris Biden administration,” as bumbling Joe Biden, their presidential contender, has referred to the ticket he is supposed to be heading. VP candidate Kamala Harris is even more audacious as she describes, “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden.” (Both links include brief videos.)
The impact of the Supreme Court vacancy on the Nov. 2020 election should not be minimized. Another Trump appointee will give the court a 6-3 conservative majority, which is why Democrats are issuing threats.
Currently the Supreme Court confirming U.S. Senate has a Republican majority. There are 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and 2 Independents, (who caucus with the Dems). Vice President Mike Pence casts any tie-braking vote.
Trump has already put forth a list of women Federal Court judges as a nod to Ginsburg. Still, the Democrats are crying, “foul” at the temerity of the elected President of the United States daring to make a legitimate appointment that is clearly within his purview.
Democrat leaders are shameless, as they threaten “packing the court” by adding new seats and filling them with Democrats and reviving their reliable fallback of resurrecting their failed impeachment scheme.
But court packing might only be the start. Democrat Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (NY) declared: “Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, (filling the SCOTUS vacancy) then nothing is off the table for next year.” For added emphasis, he repeated “Nothing is off the table.”
Schumer, who held an unusual joint press conference Sunday with radical first-term U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY CD-14) — a former bartender elected as member of the Democratic Socialists of America — might have been consulting with these extremist lunatics who have threatened to “burn the entire f**king thing down.”
Leftist Paul Blumenthal writing for the Huffington Post, and clearly suffering an anxiety disorder, hyperventilates over Trump’s second term, repeatedly using the words “nightmare scenario.”
As this 2016 map illustrates, American voters spoke loud and clear…rejecting scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton. President Donald Trump triumphed by wide margins, and has not only the duty, but the obligation to fill the current SCOTUS vacancy.
