Dems Top Choices for 2020 Trip Over Themselves to Oppose Trump’s SCOTUS Pick

Published

on

Eager to virtue signal their butts off ahead of a possible 2020 run, several key Democrats are making a lot of noise about Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump made the much-anticipated announcement last night and no doubt the Dems, just like the protesters outside the Sup. Ct. who literally had fill-in-the-black signs to oppose whoever the pick may be, were ready with their statements regardless of who Trump’s finalists would be.

Kavanaugh is surely, like any of his picks would have been, their worst nightmare, as he’s a stalwart conservative judge who, you know, actually follows the Constitution that Democrats seem to have forgotten is supposed to govern our nation.

2020 Presidential hopefuls Corey Booker, Kamala Harris, Kristin Gillibrand, and good ol’ Bernie Sanders were among those Senators rushing to pontificate about how devastating Kavanaugh would be to their agenda, according to The Hill:

“Judge Brett Kavanaugh represents a direct and fundamental threat to that promise of equality and so I will oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court. Specifically, as a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, his nomination presents an existential threat to the health care of hundreds of millions of Americans,” Harris said in a statement just minutes after Trump announced his selection.

Booker added separately that Kavanaugh should be a “non-starter” for every senator.

“The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is enormously concerning and I’m strongly opposed to it,” he said.

Gillibrand, in a series of tweets, said that she would “stand by my pledge to vote no” on Trump’s nominee.

“The American people deserve the opportunity to make their voices heard in November about this lifetime appointment,” Gillibrand said.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also urged opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination during a Facebook Q&A shortly after Trump’s announcement.

“We’re going to do everything we can to prevent” him from being seated, Sanders said during the Facebook event.

Contenders for the party’s 2020 White House nomination have led the caucus since last year in opposing most of Trump’s nominees amid pressure from a resurgent liberal base to play hardball with the administration.

Most Dems have, naturally, been in hysterics since Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, giving Trump his second SCOTUS nominee in so many years; a virtual jackpot for any president.

Unfortunately for them, there’s not much they can do about it with a majority Republican Senate, so the chances of a swift confirmation are looking good:

After GOP senators got rid of the 60-vote filibuster for Supreme Court nominees last year, a nominee only needs a simple majority, so Republicans could confirm Kavanaugh without help from Democrats if their caucus remains united.

Their 51-seat majority is currently capped at 50 with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) absent as he battles brain cancer.

Three Democrats previously voted for Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.

Save conservative media!

Riot? Insurrection?

Left-wing violence is not violence to the left. Rioting, looting, fighting back against cops – those people are the real patriots, they’ll say. But when a group of supposed conservatives are literally invited by cops into the Capitol building in Washington DC, it’s insurrection! Check out what happened on Friday near Seattle. Did you hear about any of this on the news? From KIRO7: BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday, forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety. Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6. CONTINUED: “It was unsettling,” Fleetwood said. “They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave,” he said. Fleetwood said he was ushered out a back door and driven away from the building to his car.

Pro-Choice Protesters Storm Catholic Church In Middle of Mass, Call for Abortion On-Demand

Is there even a word for this kind of depravity?

“Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!” That’s what these crazed radicals chanted when they stormed into a Catholic Church like a pack of imbeciles. Considering Joe Biden is a “devout Catholic” – LOL – he’ll surely have something to say, right? This is not a story you’ll see on news broadcasts tonight. From Catholic News Agency: “Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion. At least two protesters wore vests that read “clinic escort” on the back. Police and church officials escorted the protestors outside, where some protesters appeared to make obscene gestures at them, according to video from The Columbus Dispatch. Friday marked the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which mandated permissive abortion laws nationwide.
