Immediately following Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation as our next U.S. Supreme Court Justice last evening, Democrats warned Republicans that they would regret their decision to hold a vote so closely to an election.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters; “My colleagues may regret this for a lot longer than they think.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also released a statement saying Trump and the GOP Senate “committed an act of supreme desperation” by acting so close to next Tuesday’s election.
Pelosi’s criticism of the timing of Barrett’s confirmation is laughable and would be the equivalent of demanding the opposing quarterback take a knee instead of running a two-minute drive that might win the game.
Speaker Pelosi threw red meat to her starving followers when she added…
“The President’s Supreme Court manipulation threatens the very values and rights that define and distinguish our nation: a woman’s constitutional right to make her own medical decisions, the rights of LGBTQ Americans, the right of workers to organize and collectively bargain for fair wages, the future of our planet and environmental protections, voting rights and the right of every American to have a voice in our democracy.”
Those are all policy decisions that the Framers put in the hands of the Congress, of course. They are outside the purview of the courts whose sole role is to determine whether legislation comports with the Constitution.
Democrats have long relied on activist justices on the Supreme Court to act as super legislators without any accountability to voters. Pelosi knows that forcing her caucus to vote on these issues would greatly diminish its size… and her power.
Such talk is a sign of desperation from a party that appears to be struggling just to hold its rank and file together.
Other Democrat Senators, including Chris Coons (DE), Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) and Chris Murphy (CT) were seen as even more threatening.
One wonders just how vicious Democrats can be. Afterall, they spent the last year of the Obama administration turning our intelligence agencies into a weapon to destroy candidate Trump.
Failing to destroy the candidate, Democrats have been running a never-ending coup against the duly-elected President Trump that included assassinating his character, appointing a special counsel, and an impeachment.
Or maybe, they think we forgot their disgusting treatment of Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation process…
Democrats, who claim to support independent women and blacks, chose to ignore what we saw last night.
Last night, Americans witnessed a highly accomplished female judge being administered the Supreme Court oath of office by a highly accomplished black Justice.
One would think every American who claims to care about women and blacks would’ve celebrated that scene. But, not the so-called party of ‘diversity.’
Democrats saw their ideological control over the high court disappearing… women and blacks be damned. The keyword being ‘independent’ women and blacks.
Joe Biden warned America … a dark winter is coming, he just left out the part about who is going trying to bring it …
