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.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

on

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

on

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
