OPINION: Democrats Are Furious About Trump And The Supreme Court After Learning Who’s To Blame

Published

on

Democrats are beside themselves over President Trump having the chance to nominate yet another Supreme Court Justice. Gorsuch was bad enough, but now, Trump is filling Kennedy’s seat – he was the moderate swing vote on the court. And the leading contenders for Trump’s selection are all constitutional conservatives who are pro-life. Bummer for the left. And all of this is due to Obama’s arrogance. It is just now dawning on Democrats that the Obama White House is to blame for all of this. They may be furious that Trump gets to shape the Supreme Court for decades to come and cementing a conservative majority for the foreseeable future, but they only have themselves and Obama to blame here.

The left thinks that Trump convinced Justice Anthony Kennedy to retire so he could fill his seat. There may be some truth to that, but not the way the left thinks. I understand that Kennedy went to see President Trump before his announcement to tell him he has faith in him picking a suitable successor. The left calls it dirty pool, I call it nuance. It was a calculated move on Kennedy’s part and very prudent if you ask me. He’s 81 now and it is time to let younger blood put on the black robe. Kennedy was not manipulated… his decision is his own. You don’t become a Supreme Court Justice by being a fool.

What should have the left ticked off if they were honest with themselves is that Obama did not convince Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to retire during the many years that Democrats controlled the Senate. She could easily have stepped aside, she’s 85 now. It was a mistake to hold on, and now at her advanced age and with the popularity of President Trump, she may be replaced by another constitutional conservative. She can’t sit on the bench forever… her days are numbered and not in the favor of the left. Should that happen and President Trump seats another on the bench, the Supreme Court will turn conservative for a generation or more.

Either Obama was too busy being arrogant and partying with celebrities, or he planned poorly for the most important issue out there. He could have possibly guaranteed four liberal votes on the court. I think he believed solidly that Hillary Clinton would become president and it was nothing to stress over. But he could not have been more wrong. Obama’s plan to turn the controlling voting bloc in America Marxist by utilizing an open borders policy is also failing. His dream of permanent Marxism in the US is all but dead. We really dodged a bullet on that one.

As for Obama himself, he bought his own press. He really thought Americans supported his anti-business, anti-capitalist agenda. What they really wanted were jobs and security and he never figured that out. His first hint was the beating the Dems took in the midterms in 2010. But he still believed he could do no wrong.

Fox News points out the obvious progression of events here:

“As Mara Liasson wrote for NPR in 2016: “During Obama’s eight years in office, the Democrats have lost more House, Senate, state legislative and governors seats than under any other president.” She noted that the Obama legacy includes “one huge failure: a diminished Democratic Party.”

“In 2013, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., invoked the so-called “nuclear option,” discarding traditional filibuster protections for the minority party in favor of requiring only a simple majority to approve judicial and executive branch nominees. He carved out an exception for people put forward for the Supreme Court.

“The next year – with CNN describing President Obama as an “unpopular president limping through his second term” – Republicans reclaimed control of the Senate. As a result of that achievement, President Obama’s chances of securing a liberal majority on the high court all but disappeared.

“In the spring of 2016, Senate Republicans blocked a vote on Judge Merrick Garland, who President Obama nominated to the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. The Republicans said the looming election should allow Americans to decide which party’s president could appoint the next Supreme Court justice.

“Last year, with partisanship riding high in the Senate, Republicans extended Reid’s majority rule provision to include Supreme Court justices, clearing the path for confirming Judge Neil Gorsuch to become a Supreme Court justice. President Trump’s pick to take Justice Kennedy’s place will have to win a majority of Senate votes, which is no mean task.”

But remember that Trump is a master negotiator and deals will be cut here. His Supreme Court pick will get through using the “nuclear option” – it is a virtual certainty. On top of that, what really has the left wigged out is the possibility of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion nationwide, being overturned. They have totally come unglued over it and there are a couple of progressive Republicans also in that camp. Three Republican senators: Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Susan Collins of Maine, all have stated they will not vote for a Supreme Court nominee who suggests he or she might not respect the precedent of earlier rulings allowing abortion. John McCain cannot be counted on here either as he is suffering from terminal brain cancer, so his vote will be absent.

This will be tricky as it only leaves the GOP with a two-vote advantage in the Senate. Either the progressive Republicans get on board, or Trump will have to sway a Dem or two. He’s done it before, I have no doubt, he’ll do it again. Republicans should purge themselves of RINOs and this would not be such a life or death issue when it comes to crunch time for voting. Regardless, the high court is moving to the right and will remain there for decades and there’s pretty much nothing the Democrats can do about it.

Trump is set to announce his nominee the evening of July 9th. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has made it clear he wants to vote on the new nominee this fall. This will not wait until after the midterms and the Democrats are now in a panic over it. They can thank Obama for all of this. President Trump has undone most of Obama’s damage by lowering taxes and scuttling regulations. The economy and jobs are booming and our military is being rebuilt to keep us safe. Americans are now optimistic about our country’s future once again.

In President Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhode’s book “The World as It Is: a Memoir of the Obama White House,” President Obama asks his aides, after Donald Trump’s election: “What if we were wrong?” It was, as The New York Times noted, a moment of “rare self-doubt.” Perhaps he should have wondered about that long before his term was over. The Dems are blind to the damage Obama caused their party, but they cannot deny the catastrophe the Supreme Court is for them and only one man led the way on that… Barack Obama.

Already, with Gorsuch on board, recent rulings have been devastating for the left. These include Janus v. AFSCME (the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), which could undermine the influence of public employee unions that generally support Democrats in elections; the upholding of President Trump’s travel ban on countries that pose a national security risk; and the ruling in favor of a baker who refused to produce a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. These are dark days for Marxists and sunny ones for conservatives. This points to the high court swinging far to the right in the future and all but ending the leftist’s hold on America. Next up… the retirement of Justice Ginsburg.

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

Published

...

* By

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.

Military Just Unleashed ‘PAIN RAY’ Weapon On Illegals – Instantly Solves The Problem

Published

on

...

* By

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

The US army says its new ‘pain ray’ hurts but does no lasting damage. Its critics would beg to differ.

‘It was as if some invisible jet impinged upon them… I saw them staggering and falling, and their supporters turning to run.” Since the first appearance of the “heat-ray” in H G Wells’s The War of the Worlds, ray guns have been a staple feature of science fiction: the classic sign of overwhelming technological superiority. But they are no longer fiction. Last month, Lt Col John Dorrian admitted that the US military’s brand-new Active Denial System (ADS) had been shipped to Afghanistan, the first time it has been present in an active theatre of war. According to the top brass, it is a “non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel weapon”. Among the troops, however, its favoured description is rather shorter: “the pain ray”.

Compared with most military vehicles, the device looks relatively harmless – like one of the broadcasting trucks you see outside big sporting events: an anonymous-looking military transport with what appears to be a square satellite dish mounted on top. But it contains an extraordinary new weapon, capable of causing immense discomfort from half a mile away without – its makers claim – doing any lasting damage.

The ADS works by projecting a focused beam of 3.2mm wave electromagnetic radiation at a human target. This heats the water and fat molecules on the skin, causing their temperature to rise by up to 50C. Philip Sherwell, a Sunday Telegraph reporter who tried out the ADS in 2007, describes it as “unbearably uncomfortable, like opening a roasting hot oven door”. The immediate instinct is to escape the beam and seek cover – at which point the effect subsides.

In some quarters, the ADS has been hailed as the future of crowd control. Kelley Hughes, a spokesman for the Pentagon’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate (JNLWD), which oversaw its development, says that “the ADS provides our troops with our most advanced, non-lethal escalation-of-force option. It will support a full spectrum of operations ranging from non-lethal methods of crowd and mob dispersal, checkpoint security, area denial and clarification of intent.”

Although its operational parameters are classified, the JNLWD says that the ADS has a range of up to 500m, 10 times greater than current non-lethal weapons such as rubber bullets. The technology has been in development for two decades, and has cost well in excess of $60 million. Each device costs $5 million, and safety testing has been ongoing for 12 years.

Mindful of the terrible publicity Tasers and other crowd-suppression techniques have received, the JNLWD has been at pains to stress its emphasis on testing.

“There have been more than 11,000 exposures, on over 700 volunteers,” says Hughes. “There have been six independent reviews. It has completed formal legal and treaty compliance laws. There is an 80-hour training course for using it. I am truly confident in the technology.”

Despite this, the journey to the battlefield has been far from smooth. In 2007, with the situation in Iraq at its most volatile since the invasion, US forces requested the presence of the ADS. It was never sent. Indeed, The Daily Telegraph has learnt that it has now been recalled from Afghanistan, without being fired in anger.
