Congress has abdicated its job to SCOTUS
I rarely agree with Saagar's views on politics, but on this he is spot on. As we have seen during Obama's presidency there were many vacancies on the federal courts, but starting in 2015 McConnell blocked Obama from appointing anyone to them. What did democrats do about that? Nothing. Nada. Not a gawd damned thing. But now that Trump is appointing the elite's wishlist of justices that will do their biddings democrats are helping McConnell appoint over 200-250 justices to the courts. Many of them we hear are not qualified because of various reasons, but democrats vote to allow them to be appointed. Schumer's legacy is that he let Trump change the federal court for generations. This won't be McConnell's legacy nor will it be Trump. It will be Schumer and every democrat in the senate during Trump's tenure. Why are they helping republicans? Because their donors/masters tell them to do it. It is really this simple.
Saagar starts out with how congress used to decide important issues through legislation, but not any longer. Immigration/DACA? Let the SC decide. The ACA? Abortion rights? Gun rights? Worker's rights? Let 9 unelected people decide what the law of the country is.
Get screwed for any reason and have an iron clad case that should be a no brainer? It won't be heard if the power elite don't want it to. But poison thousands of kids? Money launder for any criminal as long as banks make money on it? Or any of the numerous crimes that are committed by powerful people that go unpunished? SMDH!
Jimmy covered many of these same issues in his video on Ginsberg and I agree with his views.
I think that this current crop of congress is one of the most corrupt in the history of the country. While millions were laid off or terminated for good congress turned its back on We the People and gave us a one time $1,200 check while transferring trillions to the corporations, banks and churches who did not only not need it because they had other options to fund their businesses, but then let them continue paying out massive bonuses.
Meanwhile millions of families are on the brink of starvation. Before the COVID epidemic hit 19 million CHILDREN were food challenged and congress has spent decades defunding food stamps. The last cut that I know about was during Obama when he signed the bill that cut $5 billion from the programs. Nary a word was said about that. Tens of thousands of people last month were given eviction notices even though there was a moratorium against them. Pelosi wanted to give them access to a lawyer funded by congress.
Rising had David Sirota on last week and he talked about how CEOs load their businesses with massive debt and then use the money to pay out bonuses before they declare bankruptcy. That money never goes to the employees that are getting shafted after working for them for decades and often for generations. Oh no. They get their pensions robbed and told to go f'ck themselves and the courts let them do it.
Every day some Biden sycophant tells me that I must vote for him because Trump is so corrupt. So dangerous. So Orange. But when I ask them if that is true then why are democrats helping him pass his agenda? Appoint his unqualified right wing judges? Keeping him from withdrawing troops from wherever he wants?
There are 100 million eligible voters that do not vote and yet neither party goes after them by offering them something that they can vote FOR instead of vote Against. Democrats are going after republicans and telling the left to go screw themselves. In fact Democrats are welcoming the Bush cabal neocons into the party. Gee, I survived the Bush presidency so why would I want to go back to it? Besides didn't Obama say that group drove the car into the ditch and therefore can't have keys to cars anymore? Yes he did. So why are democrats buying them brand new cars?
The system is rotten to the core and is as corrupt as the one the Founding Fathers escaped from and wrote up a new system of government. Yes it left a lot to be desired, but almost everything they created has been thrown out. Can you name one civil liberty that is still working for us? Barr is having people in Aurora, CO arrested because they were the leaders for the protests after cops strangled a person and then had paramedics shoot him up with an overdose of Ketamine. Not one of them has been charged for that brutal murder. Think voting is going to change that? Vote blue no matter who when it's democratic governors who are cracking down on protesters? Willingly letting people in nursing homes die and then gave those CEOs immunity for grannies death?
People say that we must vote Trump out, but I ask why we should when Biden is going to continue doing what Trump is just like Obama continued many of the Bush policies. No. I will not take part in this corrupt system because it means that I am giving my permission to continue being corrupt. Never. Going. To. Happen. I am told that we have to vote out fascism by voting for the person who is most responsible for it. And this was after dems got the Green Party kicked of the ballot in multiple states. And never forget that Clinton got the democrats in bed with the Koch brothers.
I'd vote for a giant meteor before I will vote for Biden or Trump.
