WATCH: Mitch McConnell Brutally Mocks Hysterical Libs Over Supreme Court Pick Opposition

Published

on

Ever since Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, the Democrats have been falling apart at the seams.

And we’re not just talking about the dramatic SJWs on Twitter lamenting the loss of their precious Roe v. Wade or the women who think the country will now be “literally The Handmaid’s Tale.” 

We’re talking about prominent Democratic leadership. But who can tell the difference anymore?

Trending: Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

Mitch McConnell seems to agree, and he made no effort to hide his feelings on the Senate floor yesterday prior to Trump’s announcement of his SCOTUS pick, saying Democrats had gotten so dramatic that it was “hard to keep a straight face.”

The Daily Wire reports:

The Kentucky Republican took a shot at Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), without naming him, for putting out a press release saying that he would not support whomever the president selected, the Free Beacon reported.

“It’s hard to keep a straight face when you hear stuff like that,” McConnell said. “There’s not even a nominee yet. Justice Kennedy just announced his retirement, and they’re talking about the destruction of the Constitution? Please, give the American people some credit.”

“This far-left rhetoric comes out every single time, but the Apocalypse never comes,” McConnell continued. “Americans see beyond this kind of far-left mongering. This kind of fear-mongering they tried over and over again for 40 years.”

“Senators should do the same,” McConnell said. “We should evaluate this president’s nominee fairly, based on his or her qualifications.”

There is a simple reason the Democrats are upset while Republicans are largely calm, and it’s not just because a Republican president nominated Kennedy’s replacement.

It’s because Republicans generally look to the Supreme Court to uphold the Constitution, while Democrats look to the Court to uphold their agenda. 

All they needed to hear was that Trump was going to appoint an originalist, and they were shaken to the core. That speaks volumes about the current state of the Democrat party, and certainly gives us a chance to once again give a sigh of relief that Hillary Clinton is not the one nominating Supreme Court Justices.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
