Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chucky Schumer Says It’s Unlikely Gorsuch Will Reach 60 Votes

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.

DNC Asks All Staffers For Resignation Letters

HMM, IS THIS AN ADMISSION THAT THE DNC DID COLLUDE AND FAVOR HILLARY OVER BERNIE?

As reported at NBC News, the “embattled” DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers dated by at least April 15, 2017. There usually is mass turnover following a presidential election, but nothing like this. This extreme house cleaning is a result of the DNC’s failures in losing to Trump, failing to gain back the House and Senate and the hacked emails that came to light showing that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary. Is this a bone thrown to the far LEFT Sanders’ voters and a sign that the Dems are going to go even farther left?

DNC Cleaner

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party’s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.

Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.

Immediately after Perez’s selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal workings.

A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future. [...]

It began with accusations that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and the abrupt resignation of former chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and concluded with the shocking defeat of its presidential nominee and a divisive race for the new party chairman.

The grueling experience, which followed years in which many Democrats felt the Obama White House ignored the party organization, has left the DNC with a crisis of confidence and competence.

Powerline asks why NBS News, a perennial shill for the Democrat party would use the word “embattled?”

That is the great unspoken fact of American politics. Conservatives are hard on the Republican Party–we often denounce our party’s leaders as inept, or worse. But in fact, the Republican Party is riding a wave of historic success. It is the Democrats who are sliding downhill toward oblivion, if present trends continue. Has any major political party in any country ever had such an unsympathetic set of leaders as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton? Not that I know of.

Hence the “embattled” status of the Democratic National Committee. It will take a lot more than a few staff changes to alter the fortunes of the Democratic Party, but NBC offers no evidence that any major rethinking is in progress. On the contrary.

The view that the Democrats’ problem is that they haven’t moved far enough to the Left is not widely held among objective observers, but it apparently seems plausible to NBC. Watch for the Democrats’ downhill slide to continue.

Democrat Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer Met with the Russians … Where is the Outrage?

THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LEFT, SO I AM GUESSING DEMOCRATS WILL BE ASKING SCHUMER TO RESIGN?

With all the insanity from the LEFT that there is a connection between Trump and the Russians, because the LEFT just cannot accept losing an election, what about this? From the Gateway Pundit comes this inconvenient flashback for Democrats where in 2003, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met not only with the Russians, but Vladimir Putin, himself, in New York City.

PutinSchumer_L

More from NTK on this Schumer meeting with the Russians. Not Trump, but Chucky Schumer. So where are the calls for Schumer to resign as Democrat Senate Minority leader? Come on folks, this man has met with Putin. Oh the double standard and hypocrisy.

Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has talked quite tough on Russia as of late. In December, he said Trump’s team is “far too close to Russia,” and added “[b]oth parties ought to be united in standing up to Russian interference.”

Schumer hasn’t always been so tough on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.

The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:

Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil, Friday.

Schumer also said that day:

“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politic

Even with the Liberal MSM Giving President Trump KUDOS For Speech, Democrat Sen. Minority Leader Schumer Looks Small in His Criticism of Trump (VIDEO)

AS KENNY ROGERS SANG IN THE GAMBLER, SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ‘EM, KNOW WHEN TO FOLD ‘EM,. KNOW WHEN TO WALK AWAY AND KNOW WHEN TO RUN … SCHUMER I WOULD SUGGEST THE LATTER.

Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and the overwhelming approval and KUDOS from the MSM, liberal and conservative alike, that Donald Trump did amazingly well, Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer came across as petty and small in his post speech criticism. My prediction, if Democrats continue to pander to their insane 20% of their base and do nothing but obstruct what the American people are asking for and continue to just act the fool, they will be destroyed in the 2018 midterm elections beyond repair.

At some point you have to tip your hat and move on. This insanoid obstruction to everything Trump has got to stop. Donald Trump asked all to work together for the American people and all Democrats responded with was obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. This will not play well with middle of the road individuals and Independents.

U.S. Senate Confirms Jeff Sessions as Attorney General

SESSIONS CONFIRMED

As reported at the Hill, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the next attorney general. The vote was 52-47, with only one Democrat voting for Sessions, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Many Democrats seem to think that Sessions will not act independently of President Trump; however, they had no issue when former AG’s Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch marched in lockstep with Barack Obama. With Sessions now the new AG, his senate seat needs to be filled and according to the Politico, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley will name Luther Strange, Alabama’s attorney general, on Thursday morning to replace him in the Senate.

The Senate voted Wednesday night to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as attorney general, capping a vicious debate that left Democrats and Republicans alike seething at times.

No Republicans went against Sessions in the 52-47 vote. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) was the only Democrat to back Sessions.

While Republicans broke out into applause after the vote closed, Democrats largely stood silently. A handful of Democratic senators — including Manchin, Sen. Joe Donnelly (W.Va.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) — went over and shook Sessions’s hand after the vote. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), who didn’t support Sessions, hugged him on the Senate floor.

The fight over Sessions escalated this week, when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) read a letter that Coretta Scott King had written in 1986 that accused Sessions, a U.S. attorney at the time, of using the power of his office to prevent blacks from voting.
