Let me start by asking, is there anyone, anywhere, regardless of party affiliation unable to recognize what the Federal judiciary and the Supreme Court would look like today had it been Hitlery who had won in 2016? ‘BO’ left office leaving unfilled 100 federal judgeships, why? Was he so sure that Hiterly was going to be victorious and would end up filling them? In the end it really doesn’t matter, what most important is that they were left for President Trump to fill, allowing America to dodge a bullet!
And now President Trump has, as he has gone about the putting into place of over 300 federal judges in place, plus he has also now placed into nomination his third Supreme Court Justice. Even if he does not win in November, God forbid, he has left quite the legacy. But, as expected, the Democrats, and any number of others on the left, are none too happy with what President Trump has been able, and very willing, to do. Those who love this country have much for which to thank this president.
One of those who are none too happy with what this president has been able to do is none other the Chuckie Schumer, and for any number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that he hates America. Chuckie released a statement on Saturday, where he went so far as to warn that a “far-right majority” on the court could “turn back the clock on women’s rights and a woman’s right to choose, workers’ rights, voting rights, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections, and more.”
He said, “A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic.” He continued, “The American people should make no mistake—a vote by any Senator for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to strike down the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.” And he then went on to proclaiming that President Trump has “once again put Americans’ healthcare in the crosshairs.”
Chuckie continued saying, “The future for DACA recipients also hangs in the balance with this nominee,” he added, accusing Trump and GOP senators of failing to address the “tremendous pain the American people are feeling amidst this pandemic.” He added, “Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish was that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. Republicans are poised to not only ignore her wishes, but to replace her with someone who could tear down everything that she built.”
Chuckie then went on to describe it as a “reprehensible power grab” and “cynical attack on the legitimacy of the Court.” Both are things that Chuckie knows a thing or two about, and he went on to promise to “strongly oppose” Barrett’s nomination. But there’s really very little that Chuckie can do. And perhaps if the Democrats hadn’t let the cat out of the bag about their desire to eliminate the Electoral College or pushed so hard for mail-in voting President Trump would not have felt the urgency.
At this point, I would suggest that perhaps old Chuckie should simply throw in the towel, skip the confirmation hearings and save the fight for another day. Everybody knows the script by now anyway, or they should. This judge is to be considered as “Extreme”, “Out of the mainstream.” “Her faith is troubling,” followed by hair splitting slander, pointless scolding, much posturing for the camera, accusations of being “far right,” “will destroy Justice Ginsburg’s legal legacy,” yadda, yadda yadda.
Chuckie & Co. are now deliberately trying to muddy the waters. And they know that those who comprise their voter base are far too stupid to understand that it’s only a Supreme Court with a conservative majority that will protect, and maintain, their Constitutional Rights far better than a Court with a left of center majority ever would. Democrats are not in favor of those who interpret the Constitution as written, they favor those willing to insert those ‘rights’ that are nowhere to be found.
And finally, the law itself is a conservative concept, it simply says what it says, nothing more, nothing less. The idea of a ‘living and breathing’ interpretation is antithetical to the concept of law and the Constitution. Therefore, much of Justice Ginsburg’s so-called Liberal approach to the Constitution was in and of itself, unconstitutional. It is thus a good thing to reverse her many mistakes. This is why, I think, that she did not remove herself from the court during the last administration.
Or perhaps, just perhaps, she saw the error of her ways and wanted to open the position to a return to conservativsm to the law itself. Chuckie calls this “a reprehensible power grab,” and in so doing exposes his obvious lack of cognition and understanding of the law and perhaps needs a dictionary as well. And apparently, he hasn’t read the Constitution, but then what Democrat ever has. Chuckie, as does the Democrat Party, supports an overtly Liberal/socialist approach to government.
President Trump’s approach is to defeat the power establishment, returning the power to ‘We the People’ and with regards to the judiciary, to return it to its roots of conservatism of original interpretation. Chuckie’s pathetic and irresponsible charges are yet another example of his ideological weaknesses. There is nothing cynical at all about returning to the true meaning of the Constitution and the law. Chuckie himself is the definition reprehensible. “Say of others what you do.” (Karl Marx)
