I realize that I might be accused of beating of dead horse by choosing to point out, yet again, something that I would have thought by now, would be painfully obvious to anyone with a brain. That being the fact that Democrats love to claim how it is that the Republicans somehow behave differently than they themselves have behaved in exactly the same situation, and how that is nothing more than a lie. Oddly enough we are all supposed to perceive members of the Democrat Party as being as ‘pure as the wind driven snow’ when, in fact, they are the complete opposite.
If this latest dustup regarding the nominating of a Justice to replace Antonin Scalia has done anything, it has been to once again lay bare the blatant hypocrisy of Democrats. The latest bit of proof of that comes to us in the person Democrat Chris Murphy who, on Wednesday, made the rather idiotic comment that the Republicans’ stand against replacing the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia until after the next presidential election is akin to “giving a middle finger” not only to Americans but Barry “Almighty” as well. An idiotic comment to say the least, but typical.
Because, and let’s be very clear here, I think most of us would agree that if there’s anyone who can be said to be guilty of giving the American people the big middle finger, it would be hypocritical Democrats like Mr. Murphy! And that becomes all the more obvious when one takes the time to look back over the course of the last seven years. Let’s face it, how many times have Barry and his team of corrupt Democrats sought to stick it to the American people? It was right out of the gate that they committed the ultimate fraud against the people, and called it ‘Obamacare.’
Anyway, it was what at recent press conference held there at the Capitol that our esteemed Mr. Murphy made his idiotic remarks. He said, “Senate Republicans are giving a middle finger to the American people.” He was there with other leftist lawmakers and activists touting 1.3 million petition signatures asking the Senate to hold hearings on any nominee put forth by Barry. However, knowing Democrats as we all do, I would very be curious to know just how many it is of those 1.3 million signatures that actually belonged to folks who are still alive.
And then in what could only be described as an act of pure desperation, Murphy, then went on to make the claim that the Republicans’ stance is the “final proof” that the GOP does not believe in the “legitimacy” of Barry’s presidency and implied that that alone is the reason they opposed not only the president’s executive actions and international diplomatic efforts, but are blocking a Supreme Court justice nomination. He said, “They simply don’t believe that this president, nor his election, is legitimate.” Obviously this scum will resort to saying absolutely anything.
And so it was that we had standing alongside those lawmakers present, and behind boxes containing some of the petitions and labeled “1,000,000 Americans to Senate Republicans – Follow the Constitution,” several representatives from a number of hardcore left-wing groups, including MoveOn.org, Color of Change Campaign, Every Voice, People for the American Way, Common Cause, Progressive Change Campaign, Demand Progress Campaign, and Daily Kos Campaign. Ah yes, together these groups form quite the cadre of ardent defenders of freedom. NOT!!
And of course there were any number of other left-wing groups who enthusiastically supported the petition drive including such bastions of leftwing kook-dom as CREDO Action, UltraViolet Action, and NexGen Climate. And, I’m sure it would come as no surprise to anyone that Ding-bat Democrat Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren also collected signatures for the petition campaign. That was according to some press release that was distributed at the press conference. Those on the left are truly pulling out all the stops in their effort to seize control of the court.
Then, it was in a letter sent this past Tuesday to Senate Majority Leader Mitch ‘The Spineless’ McConnell and signed by all 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is the committee that clears a nominee to be voted on by the whole Senate, in which members stated they believe that while the Constitution calls for the president to name a nominee, the power to “grant or withhold” that nominee rests solely with the Senate. Apparently it’s this power which belongs to the Senate is something Democrats view as relevant only when they are the ones in charge.
It was this letter that stated: “Accordingly, given the particular circumstances under which this vacancy arises, we wish to inform you of our intention to exercise our constitutional authority to withhold consent on any nominee to the Supreme Court submitted by this president to fill Justice Scalia’s vacancy.” It went on to state, “Because our decision is based on constitutional principle and born of a necessity to protect the will of the American people, this committee will not hold hearings on any Supreme Court nominee until after our next president is sworn in on January 20, 2017.”
This continuing nonsense on the part of these pathetically corrupt Democrats may be music to the ears of those on the left, because, as you must be able to tell, they are quite literally salivating over the opportunity to apply what would be a decades long leftist slant to the highest court in the land. Those of us the right are going to be required to be just as determined in our efforts to prevent that from occurring by putting the fear of God into OUR elected leaders who are the only ones standing in the way of turning this Democrat dream of a leftist court into a reality.
