MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, DEMOCRATS WILL RUE THE DAY IF THAT ACT IN A PARTISAN MANNER IN VOTING FOR SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH …
Democrat Minority leader Schumer said yesterday on Meet the Press that Democrats and Republicans should come up with a mainstream nominee instead of President Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Sorry Chucky, you don’t get to dictate anything or make the rules. You are in the minority. In the famous words of former president Barack Obama when speaking to the GOP leadership after he won the presidency … elections have consequences.
As the Senate gears up to consider President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer predicted Sunday that “it looks like Gorsuch will not reach the 60-vote margin” needed to overcome a filibuster.
If the 60 votes aren’t there, Schumer argued during an appearance on “Meet The Press,” Trump should gather with Senate Democrats and Republicans to “try to come up with a mainstream nominee.”
“Look, when a nominee doesn’t get 60 votes, you shouldn’t change the rules, you should change the nominee,” said Schumer, D-New York.
Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell said that Neil Gorsuch would be elected to the SCOTUS in one way or the other. McConnell put forth the qualifications of Gorsuch and battled the liberal MSM who argued the Democrat side.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) Shut Down After Vile Speech Against Sessions Broke Senate Rules (VIDEO)
IF YOU DON’T WANT THE FOLLOW THE RULES … SIT DOWN!!!
Pocahontas, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was shut down during her vitriolic speech against President Donald Trump nominee for attorney General, Sen. Jeff Sessions. It appears that under Senate rule 19, No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator. That is exactly what Warren was accused of doing. Warren knows the rules of the Senate and as most on the LEFT believe, that they don’t apply to them. After a contentious back and forth conversation between Warren and the Senate chair, which prompted the chair to finally say … “The senator will take her seat.” BAM!!!! The headlines from the liberal media regarding this case show more pure bias. When the liberal MSM does not like the law, they call them arcane.
The move means the progressive senator won’t be allowed to speak from the floor until after the Senate wraps up its debate on Sessions’s nomination, expected to occur on Wednesday evening.
The drama on the Senate floor comes after McConnell interrupted Warren’s speech accusing her of breaking the upper chamber’s guidelines.
“The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” McConnell said from the Senate floor. “I call the senator to order under the provisions of Rule 19.”
Under the Senate’s “Rule 19,” senators are not allowed to “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”
WHY SHOULD HE, MCCONNELL IS A LAIR!
In an interview with CNN, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and presidential candidate says an apology “ain’t gonna happen” for calling GOP Senate Majority leader a liar. Exactly why should Cruz apologize? The fact is Mitch McConnell is a liar. No one should have to kiss the ring of the establishment. This is what the American people are sick of. The reason why Cruz is one of the last people standing for the GOP in the Republican presidential primary is because he did call the Republican leader of the Senate a liar.
An apology from Ted Cruz for calling Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar “ain’t gonna happen,” the presidential hopeful said during a Thursday interview with CNN’s Dana Bash.
“If the Washington lobbyists want to see that happen, they can hold their breath a long, long time,” Cruz said. “My focus is on the American people.”
Last summer, Cruz made headlines when he accused McConnell of lying to him over a deal to vote on reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank.
He brushed aside suggestions from Bash that an apology could help unite more Republicans behind him in his race for the party’s nomination.
Senate Republicans State No Hearings & No Votes for Obama’s Supreme Court Pick Just Like Joe Biden Stated in 1992
SORRY DEMOCRATS, THE REPUBLICANS ARE JUST DOING WHAT JOE BIDEN HAD PREVIOUSLY SAID THE DEMOCRATS WOULD DO TO GEORGE H.W. BUSH …
Washington, DC is full of hypocrites and this time the Democrats are about to eat a great big hypocrisy sandwich. Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced with the solidarity and united front of Republicans that there would be no hearings and no votes for any Supreme Court justice nominee until Obama is out of office. Obama, Biden, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats can all claim that they are outraged and this is a disgrace to the process, but they are all on record in the past of saying and doing the same thing. Actually in 1992 Biden stated as the head of the judiciary committee, “The Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling hearings on the nomination, until after the political campaign season is over.” As opined at Hot Air, Democrat Chucky Schumer is at a loss for words when trying to spin Biden’s comments. That’s a first.
We are going to hold the spineless McConnell and Senate Republicans to Mitch’s recent comment … There will be a political revolution if he goes back on these words.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a group of staunch House conservatives there isn’t “a snowball’s chance in hell” that he will back down from his opposition to confirming a Supreme Court justice before a new president is elected.
Senate Republicans on Tuesday united behind an official position on how to deal with President Obama’s expected nominee to replace the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia: no hearings, no votes and no new justice until Obama is out of office.
“Presidents have a right to nominate, just as the Senate has its constitutional right to provide or withhold consent,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a morning floor speech. “In this case, the Senate will withhold it.”
That declaration was underscored after McConnell held a closed-door meeting with Republicans sitting on the Senate Judiciary Committee. All 11 GOP panel members subsequently signed a letter pledging not to hold hearings on any replacement for Scalia until a new president is inaugurated.
Their decision not to act, they said, was “based on constitutional principle and born of a necessity to protect the will of the American people.” But Republican senators have also been emboldened in recent days by past statements from Democratic senators arguing against confirming the judicial nominees of Republican presidents in election years.
In particularly heavy rotation Tuesday was Vice President Biden’s 1992 suggestion, made when he was a senator and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the panel ought to “seriously consider” not holding hearings on an election-year Supreme Court nominee.
Donald Trump Gives Mitch McConnell & the GOP Senate Advice on Picking Next Supreme Court Justice … DELAY, DELAY, DELAY!!!
TRUMP SAYS WITH REGARDS TO OBAMA SCOTUS NOMINEES … DELAY, DELAY, DELAY!!!
This weekend during the Republican South Carolina debates Donald Trump provides GOP Senate Majority leader and the GOP Senate with some advice when it comes to picking the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States, DELAY, DELAY, DELAY. Trump stated that the death of Justice Scalia was a tremendous blow to conservatism and its a tremendous blow to our country.
“If the president, and if I were president now, I would certainly try to nominate a justice. I hope our Senate, Mitch and the entire group will be able to do something about it.”
“This is a tremendous blow to conservatism and frankly to our country. I think it’s up to Mitch to McConnell and everybody to stop it. It’s called delay, delay, delay.”
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump issued some advice to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the rest in the Senate when filling the vacancy in the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia: “delay, delay, delay.”
The CBS News GOP debate opened Saturday night with a brief memorial and moment of science for Scalia, and the candidates were all asked about the appointment of the next justice in the wake of his death. Answering first, Trump said he was “absolutely sure” President Barack Obama would attempt to nominate a new justice before his term is finished.
Trump said that he too would “certainly want to try” to fill that vacancy if he were president.
“I hope that the Senate is going to be able, Mitch and the entire group, is going to be able to do something about it in terms of delay,” Trump said. “You could have a Diane Sykes or you could have a Bill Pryor. We have some fantastic people, but this is a tremendous blow to conservatism. It’s a tremendous blow, frankly, to our country.”
“I think it’s up to Mitch McConnell and everybody else to stop it. It’s called delay, delay, delay,” he continued.
We will see if Senate Republicans have the backbone and CO-JONES to do it.
