Schumer Lacks Self-Awareness, Admits Trump Is Right About Partisan Judges

Too funny!

Chief Justice John Roberts was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2005.

He has angered many, if not most, Republicans over the years. Specifically, due to his ruling on Obamacare.

Now, Roberts has some words for President Trump.

Trump, as you’d expect, fired back.

First, here’s 45 talking poorly about the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals:

Roberts didn’t like that so much.

From AP:

Chief Justice John Roberts is pushing back against President Donald Trump for his description of a judge who ruled against Trump’s migrant asylum policy as an “Obama judge.”

It’s the first time the Republican-appointed leader of the federal judiciary has offered even a hint of criticism of Trump, who has previously blasted federal judges who ruled against him.

Roberts said Wednesday the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” He commented in a statement released by the Supreme Court after a query by The Associated Press.

Roberts said on the day before Thanksgiving that an “independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”

Trump’s response:

Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have “Obama judges,” and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country. It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an “independent judiciary,” but if it is why……

…..are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned. Please study the numbers, they are shocking. We need protection and security – these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!

Now, Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has decided to give his two cents on the feud.

Inadvertentely, Schumer showcases how Trump, not Roberts, is right about activist judges.

From Daily Wire:

On Friday, Senate Minority Leader hilariously and unwittingly confirmed that in his opinion, his arch-nemesis, President Trump, was right and Chief Justice John Roberts was wrong when Trump stated that judges on the Supreme Court held partisan views that colored their judgment and Roberts vehemently disagreed. Schumer issued a tweet in which he admitted that Roberts himself was partisan, writing, “I don’t agree very often with Chief Justice Roberts, especially his partisan decisions which seem highly political on Citizens United, Janus, and Shelby. But I am thankful today that he—almost alone among Republicans—stood up to President Trump and for an independent judiciary.”

According to SupremeCourt.gov, as quoted by fivethirtyeight.com, since Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the Court in April 2017, the four left-leaning judges on the Supreme Court are far more consistent about voting together as a bloc than the conservatives on the court; Elena Kagan votes with Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg an average of 89% of the time; Breyer votes with his cohorts an average of 91% of the time; Ginsburg also votes with her pals an average of 91% of the time, and Sotomayor joins them 90.3% of the time.

By contrast, among the four right-leaning judges, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Altio, Clarence Thomas, and John Roberts, Gorsuch sided with them an average of 82.7% of the time; Thomas 86.3% of the time; Alito 85.7% of the time, and Roberts 80.7% of the time.

GOP Sen Chuck Grassley (IA) took Trump’s side:

It would be nice if Roberts was right.

He’s not, though.

Trump is correct when he says there are “Obama judges,” meaning activist judges.

Judges appointed by liberals rule from the bench, while judges appointed by conservatives are constitutionalists.

Roberts knows this.

He’s no dummy.

He’s just probably not the president’s biggest fan.

Putin Draws ‘Red Line’ in Ukraine, Says Foreign Meddling Could Lead to Missile Strike

This certainly isn’t the first time that Putin felt the urge to proclaim his bravado to the world, but it may be one of the last times that he gets to do so without retaliation.

Vladimir Putin

There are few villains more readily apparent in this world of ours than Vladimir Putin.

The Russian leader, (who’s bent and rewritten the rules to remain in power for decades), has dropped his mask.  He’s no longer trying to hide his intentions, or even claim that he’s not being a bully.  Instead, the former KGB man has simply decided that he’s going to do what he wants, and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday sternly warned NATO against deploying its troops and weapons to Ukraine, saying it represents a red line for Russia and would trigger a strong response.

Commenting on Western concerns about Russia’s alleged intention to invade Ukraine, he said that Moscow is equally worried about NATO drills near its borders.

Speaking to participants of an online investment forum. Putin said that NATO’s eastward expansion has threatened Russia’s core security interests. He expressed concern that NATO could eventually use the Ukrainian territory to deploy missiles capable of reaching Moscow in just five minutes.

“The emergence of such threats represents a ‘red line’ for us,” Putin said. “I hope that it will not get to that and common sense and responsibility for their own countries and the global community will eventually prevail.”

Then, not so subtly…

He added that Russia has been forced to counter the growing threats by developing new hypersonic weapons.

“What should we do?” Putin said. “We would need to develop something similar to target those who threaten us. And we can do that even now.”

He said a new hypersonic missile that is set to enter service with the Russian navy early next year would be capable of reaching targets in comparable time.

“It would also need just five minutes to reach those who issue orders,” Putin said.

WOKE JOKE: Mag Ripped for Declaring Phrase ‘Invasive Species’ Problematic

The breadth of the American vocabulary is shrinking, and this is a shame that is fully owned by the radical left. 

Published

on

How far is too far these days?  Are we ever going to hit the bottom of the barrel when it comes to wokeness?  Is there a bottom?

It may only be months before activists start declaring that we rename entire cities on account of some extrapolation in the orbit of their name.  This is heading down a path that leads us to darkness – where the real evil, the really vile ideologies of our nation are so well-hidden that they mutate and grow and fester.  They’ll be so far removed from society that it will appear as though they are on another planet, and they will be plotting and preparing in an effort to shatter the phony, whitewashed facade of society once again. And, because they were allowed to work in secret, there’s no telling what they’re bringing to the fight now.

Yet still, the liberal left is pushing to bury our words and paint a thin veneer of care over our entire vernacular. Their latest campaign is downright laughable.

Left-wing news website Vox published an article this week that claimed it was time to stop demonizing “invasive” species, arguing that the ongoing use of the term divided life on Earth, including people, between native and non-native.

In the Sunday piece, freelance journalist Marina Bolotnikova blamed climate change for the forced migration of certain species, criticized measures taken by some governments to terminate those species, likened their treatment to the experiences of immigrants and suggested the term “invasive” wasn’t appropriate to describe the migrating groups.

“Ecologists expect climate change to create mass alterations in the habitats of these ‘range-shifting’ or ‘climate-tracking’ species, as they’re sometimes called, which will reshuffle ecosystems in ways that are hard to predict. The migrations are critical to species’ ability to survive hotter temperatures,” Bolotnikova wrote, citing instances of dark unicorn snails migrating from Mexico to California as an example.

Then arrived the sheer lunacy:

She later referred to conservationist efforts in North Carolina to prevent coyotes from mating with endangered red wolves as bearing “uncomfortable parallels to Western preoccupations with racial purity.”

“That’s why some scientists look askance at the influence of invasion biology and argue that the field has a baked-in, nativist bias on documenting negative consequences of introduced species and preserving nature as it is,” she wrote.

“What’s more, the very notion of ‘invasion’ draws on a war metaphor, and media narratives about non-native species are remarkably similar to those describing enemy armies or immigrants,” Bolotnikova added before citing a news story that referred to armadillos “besieging” North Carolina as “pests” and “freakish.”

The breadth of the American vocabulary is shrinking, and this is a shame that is fully worn by the radical left.
