Why are democrats helping McConnell turn the courts right?
Here are the democrats that voted for Trump's latest judges:
Tim Kaine* (Hellary's VP pick)
* Democrats who most often vote with republicans
** Joe Manchin voted for Kavanaugh which let a republican not have to come back to vote when he wife was dying. Would he have? Or would another democrat step up to give him cover?
We know there are democrats who are told to vote republican so that other democrats can get excused to not vote therefore giving them fake progressive bonifides.
Bernie keeps saying that we must vote Trump out because he is the mostest dangerous president of our lifetime. How come he doesn't rip democrats for helping Trump be that most dangerous president of our lifetime? Why doesn't he call Pelosi out for funding Trump's heinous agendas? Kids in cages? Defund DHS until they are released.
And has anyone heard of democrats being outraged over the unnecessary hysterectomies being done on immigrant women? I have seen a few tweets from the ladies of the squad, but that's it.
We are witnessing kabuki theater on a daily basis with the most corrupt congress in my lifetime. They don't even pretend that they care about our lives. Not when they did the biggest transfer of wealth to the upper class while not doing a damn thing for millions of American's who stand to lose everything. Utility shutoff moratoriums are coming to an end just in time for winter unless congress acts. Millions are at risk at being evicted from apartments and homes because both parties refuse to act.
What will Biden supporters do when he continues doing what Trump is doing on many issues? Issues that Trump is continuing from the Obama era who continued doing them from the Bush era. What will they do if democrats roll over and let McConnell appoint another Supreme Court justice? Is there anything the can do? Yes. Hillary has offered these 3 suggestions. 1 and 2 are nonsense IMO, but 3 is what they could have done to force McConnell to give Garland a vote. Gee...why didn't they do that? Hmm? Obama? Why did you just roll over for McConnell?
Hillary Clinton has offered a three-part plan for fighting against the rapid replacement of Justice Ginsburg:
1) Win over GOP Senators on principle.
2) Pressure GOP Senators in tight re-election bids.
3) Use procedural obstacles in the Senate.
- To start with, Democrats must refuse a continuing resolution so long as there is any threat of McConnell forwarding a nominee.
- In addition, Democrats must deny the Senate unanimous consent. Not just unanimous consent on the nomination, but on everything. The Senate has less than two weeks of scheduled sessions in the remainder of the year. Democrats need to deploy every possible roadblock to scheduling hearings, holding hearings, bringing a nominee forward, scheduling a vote … these are delaying tactics.
To read more of 1 and 2 go here. It's a DK link. Hillary's link goes to a person's tweet with little info.
I have no hope that democrats will fight McConnell with every trick in the book because they did not use them to make him bring Garland up for a vote. Nor have they been "Resisting" republicans nor Trump in the last 4 years. Sure they bitch and moan a lot about what's happening and pretend that they can't do anything about, but boy is that a fundraiser money maker for them. Jimmy covers what dems could have done and why they did not do a damn thing. He also reminds of that Rand Paul shuts down congress whenever he f'cking well wants to. Republicans placed secret holds or filibusters during Obama's tenure, but democrats never use that option. If Rand Paul can bring congress to a screeching halt, then why couldn't Bernie have done that on the 1st CARES act? Hint: He could have. He just didn't want to. Jimmy rails on how Bernie has never once stood up to Schumer. Well he is not alone. Is he?
Democrats have no problem if right wing judges overturn past legislation that previous democrats have passed. They want lots of rights and legislation overturned because that is what their donors want. Plain, Simple and Period

The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.
