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.

Obama Just Received Terrible News About His Presidential Library – Trump Gets Last Laugh!

Published

on

A former president who has had never run anything or had a real job in his life until he became president can’t be expected to be able to coordinate a presidential library. And that’s exactly what happened in the case of former President Barack Hussein Obama.

Chicks On The Right has reported on multiple occasions that the building for the Obama Presidential Library has been snared with issues from the start. And the newest issue will make you livid.

Here is more via The Daily Wire:

“The Chicago Park District has put a halt to preparations being made for the Obama Presidential Library until after a federal court reviews a lawsuit filed by Chicago residents, and federal agencies assess the transfer of historic public land to a private entity.

“But in the meantime, permits and agreements filed by Chicago city officials, and with the Chicago Department of Transportation, reveal a sweetheart rent deal that any Chicago renter (or landlord) would certainly envy: the Obama Foundation will pay a mere $10 for a 99-year lease on what is supposed to be a public park.

“The Chicago Park District had begun felling trees on land destined to become part of the Obama Library complex, but those preparations ground to a halt Monday after the Chicago Department of Transportation refused to grant a permit that would have allowed the Park District to move utility lines running through the site. CDOT delayed a decision on the matter until after the federal lawsuit and federal assessments have been resolved.

“Hearings on the lawsuit, which claims the Obama Library received unprecedented and potentially illegal assistance from the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago, start Thursday. Plaintiffs claim that the Library is being granted part of historic Jackson Park — a huge public green space designed by Frederick Olmsted (the same man who designed New York City’s Central Park) and dedicated for the people of Chicago’s recreational use. They also say that plans to move two major arteries that currently run across Jackson Park will harm economic growth and isolate residents of Chicago’s south side.

“Construction also halted on a new athletic field — a project the city claims has no connection to the Obama Library complex. The Chicago Sun-Times reports the city might have misled residents: the Obama Foundation appears to have granted more than $2 million to the city for the new athletic field because the old one will need to be demolished to make room for Obama’s massive complex.

“The permitting and construction process became even stranger on Wednesday, when the Sun-Times reported that the City Council was working on a bill that would grant the Obama Library a century-long lease on what is, essentially, public land, for a mere $10, even though the Foundation can afford much more — and Chicago is desperately in need of the money.

“One of the ordinances includes the agreements between the foundation and the city, which includes the foundation paying the city $10 for the 99-year pact; the other ordinance clears the legal way to plow under Cornell Drive from 59th Street to Hayes Drive to be reconfigured as green space on the Obama campus,” the Sun-Times says. That’s down from the $1-per-year rental fee proposed earlier in the process.

“In return, the Obama Foundation must pledge to cover the $350 million in expected construction costs for the Library, protecting Chicago taxpayers (the Foundation has already received nearly $220 million in construction grants from the State of Illinois).

“One of the Library’s top critics called the deal infuriating.

“The idea of leasing invaluable, irreplaceable public parkland to a private entity for $10 for 99 years is astounding in this era when public lands and natural resources are under attack in so many places,” the head of Jackson Park Watch told local media. “Besides, Chicago’s finances are extremely precarious. Yes, this is symbolic, but symbolism is significant.”

“Other Chicago museums are located on public property, but those museums have agreements with the city of Chicago in perpetuity.

“The City Council is expected to read and vote on the rental agreement Thursday.”

$10 for a 99-year lease? Where can us common folk get a hold of an awesome deal like this?

This hasn’t been the first big issue the library construction has had. A couple of months back a federal judge let groups, who were suing the Obama Foundation over its plans for a presidential center on Chicago’s South Side, actually begin demanding information from the city of Chicago to determine how the site was selected for the project instead of other private properties which had been declined previously.

In that hearing, the District Court Judge John Robert Blakey agreed to let the plaintiffs proceed. This is being led by Protect Our Parks who want to obtain information from the city of Chicago and Obama officials on how it selected the site. The Barack Obama Presidential Center is being proposed on federal land that was deemed by the government in 2012 to be inappropriate for construction.

Is anything out of Chicago which concerns Barack Hussein Obama not questionable in nature? No other president in recent memory has had so many issues constructing their respective libraries. Maybe that’s because those libraries aren’t of questionable origin representing an individual of questionable origin and character.

Whatever the reason, let’s all be glad the Obama nightmare is over and instead of messing up the country, he is now busy messing up his own library plans.

Little Boy Surprises Trump With Question After Hurricane – Watch How Trump Responds

Published

on

...

* By

President Donald Trump arrived in New Bern, North Carolina after the Hurricane Florence hit to be hands on in helping displaced victims. Soon after he landed, he went right to work handing out aid and talking to people on a personal level. As one of the most relatable presidents America has ever had, he made an excellent effort to let everyone there know that they mattered to him and were not forgotten in their struggle.

While the leftist media has nitpicked every word he has said there and step he takes, they are “conveniently” ignoring on incredible moment. While at the aid distribution center meeting with families and offering his support, a little boy walked up to him alone and surprised the president with his question.

Trump stopped what he was doing and gave his full attention to this child who just survived a terrifying nightmare in this natural disaster. His response to the boy’s question was something this child will never forget and the country needs to see.

America The Awesome reports on the moving moment between the boy and the President of the United States:

After Hurricane Florence tore through the coastline, the Carolinas suffered great loss and are now struggling with massive flooding and property damage.

As the president handed out food to those in need while standing at a volunteer station, he also made a little boy’s day better in an adorable moment that stood out among the rest. The boy, named Tucker, approached the president with a simple question.

“Can I have a hug?” the little boy asked.

Trump them stretched out his arms and gave the little boy a hug. The other volunteer workers expressed their delight by giving him a round of applause.

After watching the president embracing Tucker, an elderly women said “I think I’m gonna cry,”.

President Trump’s kindness and support didn’t stop there. It’s clear from the footage and photos that he genuinely cares and isn’t just there to do what he “has to” as president. The boy feeling comfortable enough to ask Trump for a hug, speaks volumes of the kind of approachable and caring president we have — which he proved in his response by hugging the boy.

On the contrary, when former President Barack Obama visited New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, he too hugged a victim in a photo that went viral, however for a much different reason than Trump’s hug of this little boy.

According to PhillyMag, who interviewed the victim, Donna Vanzant, who was famously hugged by Obama while he was surveying the damage, the President at the time also promised her “immediate” assistance. Vanzant definitely needed that help as she said she suffered $500,000 in losses.

Vanzant told PhillyMag what has happened since Obama’s promise:

“After his visit, I sent an email to President Obama. Many days later, I got a response back. It was disturbing.”

“It had nothing to do with what I was asking him. It was a form letter. It thanked me for supporting the troops. He made a promise to rebuild on national television, and I can’t even get this money. It’s heartbreaking, really. I did reach out to Senator Whelan, and I got a response that they were forwarding my email to the person that Governor Christie put in charge of Sandy relief. But from President Obama, I got a form letter.”

“When you get a hug from the President of the United States, you feel like there’s something there. A promise was made. I have two grown kids. One is a U.S. Navy diver. The other one lives at the marina with his wife and new baby, and they lost everything. But I raised my kids to know that your word is your word. You promise something, you keep it, and that was a broken promise. I’ve never been a person to expect free handouts, but the President gave me hope. But now, I just don’t know.”

From this suffering victim’s experience with the former president’s failed promise, it’s no wonder that the mainstream media isn’t interested in showing Trump’s genuine interaction with this child, for fear of the comparison. However, it’s an important comparison to be made since Trump is often accused of doing things for “Photo ops” yet he doesn’t make promises he can’t or doesn’t intend on keeping – which he’s proved throughout his presidency.

It was Obama who had the photo op, capitalizing on this woman’s worst moment to make him look like a good person and leader, but never followed through after getting the accolades from the viral image.

Knowing the inevitable attacks on his handling of this disaster are coming, Trump made a very direct statement in North Carolina:

“Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence – and they are 100% correct,” Trump tweeted. “But don’t be fooled, at some point in the near future the Democrats will start ranting… that FEMA, our Military, and our First Responders, who are all unbelievable, are a disaster and not doing a good job. This will be a total lie, but that’s what they do, and everybody knows it!”

Trump is the man for the job and hasn’t disappointed anyone but liberals who hoped he met their low expectations of him.
