BOO HOO: Schumer Breaks Down, Whines That Trump Didn’t Consult Him on Supreme Court Pick

Published

on

It looks like someone needs a box of Kleenex and a shoulder to cry on as Chuck Schumer breaks down and complains because it seems like President Donald Trump didn’t consult with the Senator before making his Supreme Court Justice announcement. The complaint seems to go further as though Trump didn’t confide in any of the Democrats before making the nominee for Brett Kavanaugh who faced a few measly protesters as Trump called his name.

Chuck Schumer might be a major face of the Democratic Party, but that doesn’t mean the president needs to ask his permission or for his opinion on anything. If the president, whomever the president is at the time, does not care to speak with someone in particular – especially someone who probably won’t give any supportive or constructive info, then why would they talk to them?

Does it say it anywhere in the rule book that President Donald Trump has to talk to Chuck Schumer or anyone else before announcing his nominee for the Supreme Court Justice?

Hours before President Trump was to name his second Supreme Court Justice nominee, Sen. Chuck Schumer was whining on the Senate floor.

The Senate Minority Leader had his feelings hurt because Trump had not consulted him – or any Democrats – in his Supreme Court pick.

“In the old days, the president would consult with Republicans and Democrats in the Senate on a qualified judge and then after careful deliberation, nominate a jurist that could get bipartisan support,” the New York Democrat said.

“What we have here is the exact opposite,” he added. “The president has gone to two far out-of-the-mainstream, hard right groups, the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society, and asked them – not the Senate – to advise and consent on a Supreme Court nomination.”

Schumer opined about the finalists’ pro-life stances and criticized one of Trump’s top legal advisers.

“No one has been more dedicated to overturning Roe v. Wade than Leonard Leo,” he said.

“Whomever the president selects tonight,” Schumer warned, “if that nominee is from the pre-approved list selected by Leo and the Heritage Foundation, everyone ought to understand what it means for the freedom of women to make their own health care decisions and for the protection for Americans with preexisting conditions.”

“Those rights will be gravely threatened,” he concluded.

Democrats face an uphill battle blocking any Trump nominee without the filibuster rule, but they are focused on maintaining their 49-member caucus while attempting to win over at least two Republican senators.

Minutes after the president announced Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee Monday night, Schumer was geared for battle.

“I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same,” he said, according to The Hill. “The stakes are simply too high for anything less.”

If Chuck wants to whine, then let him do it on Nancy Pelosi’s shoulder. Maybe they can call Maxine Waters and scrounge up enough feelings and emotions to get a crying sessions going while President Trump makes America great again.

About a year ago it was Chuck Schumer who threatened to block President Trump when it came to making a SCOTUS pick. This is him on video.

After that Chucky goes on video to suggest that women’s health is at stake, but many others disagree.

To make Chuck’s crying session last a little bit longer, he’s now calling for an investigation into Brett Kavanaugh, according to Guardian News. “The Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, is calling for an investigation into Donald Trump’s supreme court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. ‘Judge Kavanaugh’s long track record of partisan politics comes with a long paper trail,’ Schumer said. ‘The Senate must now be able to have access and time to adequately review all documents associated with Judge Kavanaugh”

Does this guy ever look up from his little boy podium? It’s like someone else wrote all the nonsense he’s saying and then he’s reading it from a card. Or maybe he writes this gibberish and then can’t remember it, or doesn’t really believe it, so he has to force himself to read it. If there’s one thing that I know, it’s that Chuck Schumer is a terrible speaker and Donald Trump owes him nothing.

Take that to the bank.

BREAKING: Trump FIRE Boss In TOP SPOT – Will Also Replace Chief Of Staff

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to remove Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and is considering replacing chief of staff John Kelly in another shakeup of his administration, a source close to the White House said.

Trump has been mulling removing Nielsen, a Kelly protege who became the secretary at Homeland Security when he left the job to become Trump’s chief of staff, for a number of weeks, the source said.

The source cautioned Trump could still change his mind on the matter, but said he has grown weary of her in his push to harden the U.S. border with Mexico.

Trump has not decided on a candidate to replace Nielsen, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“The Secretary is honored to lead the men and women of DHS and is committed to implementing the President’s security-focused agenda to protect Americans from all threats and will continue to do so,” said Tyler Houlton, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman, in response to an ABC News report about the possible staff changes.

Trump is also considering replacing Kelly, an ardent defender of Nielsen, with Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, the source said.

Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, has sought to bring more stability to the White House operation under the unpredictable Trump.

During his time as chief of staff, he and the president have had a rocky relationship, according to various news reports and Bob Woodward’s best-selling book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

If they leave, Kelly and Nielsen would join a long list of people who have been fired by Trump or resigned since he took office in January, 2017. That list includes former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was removed by the president last week.

Broke Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Breaks Into Pelosi’s Office, Starts Making BIG Demands

Published

Earlier this week, 29-year-old socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, complained about not being able to afford an apartment in Washington, D.C. until she starts collecting her new check. Not a great start when you’re headed into the big leagues and given a seat at the adults’ table. We’re supposed to trust this woman to weigh in on decisions when she can’t even handle her personal finances on the most basic level.

However, she seems to be putting her financial woes aside, to create more negative waves in Washington with an attack on fellow Democrat Nancy Pelosi. Alexandria is clearly no fan of hers, but she also doesn’t quite understand how things work either.

I have a feeling Alexandria won’t be welcomed with open arms. She’s mentioned before she doesn’t like Pelosi. These far leftists are insane. I also don’t see this Cortez lasting long in office.

Scary to think these people are in office. Get ready for more insanity to come out of Washington.

From The Intercept:

PROTESTERS WITH THE environmental group Sunrise marched on Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s office on Tuesday. The group, made up of young people pushing for urgent action on climate change, planned to send a clear message to party leadership just one week after Democrats regained control of the House.

But this was no ordinary protest for the Sunrise activists, who typically stand on the opposite side of politicians. This time, they were joined by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is just weeks away from being sworn into office.

Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib of Michigan joined the protesters in a rally at the Spirit of Justice Park near the Capitol on Tuesday morning, but she did not continue on to Pelosi’s office. “This is the most American thing you can do,” Tlaib said of the protest. Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib also attended an event with the Sunrise activists on Monday night.

Members of the progressive political group Justice Democrats also joined the protest, which was attended by more than 150 people. “Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party leadership must get serious about the climate and our economy,” said the group’s communications director, Waleed Shahid, in a statement. “Anything less is tantamount to denying the reality of climate change. The hopeful part is that we’re ushering in a new generation of leaders into the Democratic Party who understand the urgency and will help build a movement to create the political will for bold action.”

A recent United Nations report found that catastrophic effects of climate change, some of which are already upon us, could become widespread as early as 2040. To stave off the crisis, the globe’s economy would have to be put on the equivalent of a war footing, scientists involved with the study concluded.

The protesters, including Ocasio-Cortez, are calling on Pelosi to create and give teeth to a new select committee on climate change.

The proposed committee, called the Select Committee for a Green New Deal, would be similar to something Pelosi established as House speaker in 2007, but with more authority. Back then, Pelosi created the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, and assigned her ally, then-Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., who has a strong environmental record, to chair it. The committee held dozens of hearings over the course of four years, until the tea party-led Congress, which took over in 2010, mothballed it. (The Republicans also got rid of the renewable plates and utensils Pelosi had introduced and replaced them with Styrofoam.)

The problem with that committee, Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise activists argue, was that it wasn’t funded well enough and didn’t have the true ability to write legislation. In 2009, Pelosi pushed through cap-and-trade legislation, meant to reduce emissions. But even that package moved largely through the Energy and Commerce Committee — not the select committee Pelosi had created. Markey, who chaired a subcommittee under Energy and Commerce, played a lead role in pushing through the bill, which became known as the Waxman-Markey bill, but it never came to a floor vote in the Senate. Some activists argued that it wasn’t robust enough to meet the threat of climate change, while defenders argued it was the best the chamber could do — and, as it turned out, it was far better than the Senate could do.

Since then, the global climate situation has only deteriorated, with once-in-a-century storms taking place with harrowing frequency, and drought conditions sparking war and mass migration. Dozens of people have died in still-raging fires in California that are the deadliest in the state’s modern history, and hundreds more are missing. “Resting on our laurels won’t bring back the 42 lives lost,” said Sunrise activist Varshini Prakash, referring to the deaths in California.

The proposed committee would, among other things, establish a 10-year plan to transition the U.S. economy to become carbon neutral, according to draft legislation that the activists presented to Pelosi’s office. The activists are also pushing Democratic leaders to reject campaign contributions from fossil fuel industry groups. “We need every person who is going to claim the mantle of Democratic leadership to take the no fossil fuel money pledge,” Prakash said at the sit-in outside Pelosi’s office.

Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to join the protesters and march on her own House leader sets a tone of urgency and combativeness that is rare on Capitol Hill. Walking into the Cannon House Office Building, she told The Intercept something new had to be tried. “The way things are done has not been getting results. We have to try new methods,” she said.

Pelosi may need Ocasio-Cortez’s support to win a second shot at the speakership. The California Democrat can only lose roughly 20 votes on the House floor, and already at least 10 Democrats, largely moderates and conservatives, have said they will not back her. Pelosi has expressed “100 percent” confidence that she’ll be elected speaker.
