NYTimes Editorial Board: Democrats Need To Go “Godfather” On Judicial Picks

Thank goodness the NY Times Editorial Board tells us that “The editorial board represents the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher. It is separate from the newsroom and the Op-Ed section.” In other words, a call to violence and illegal actions represents the opinion of the NY Times

Democrats: Do Not Surrender the Judiciary

With Republicans controlling the Senate and the judicial filibuster dead, the Democrats’ odds of denying President Trump a second Supreme Court appointment are slim. Barring some unforeseen development, the president will lock in a 5-to-4 conservative majority, shifting the court solidly to the right for a generation.

This is all the more reason for Democrats and progressives to take a page from “The Godfather” and go to the mattresses on this issue. Because this battle is about more than a single seat on the nation’s highest court. With public attention focused on all that is at stake with this alignment, this is the moment for Democrats to drive home to voters the crucial role that the judiciary plays in shaping this nation, and why the courts should be a key voting concern in Every. Single. Election.

This call to arms may sound overly dramatic. It’s not

They’ve seen the movies, right? The ones which feature murders, hits at restaurants, riddling a guy with bullets non-stop from heavy caliber automatic weapons, strangling people with garrotes, putting horse heads in beds, starting mob wars, stabbings, general mayhem, etc.

And the NTYEB wants this over not just the Supreme Court, but all federal judiciary

Long after Mr. Trump is nothing but a toxic memory, the federal judiciary — from the Supreme Court on down — will bear the smear of his fingerprints. The coming confirmation battle will be fierce, but no matter what happens, the fight cannot end there. On Nov. 6, voters will have their first chance to arrest Mr. Trump’s warping of the judiciary. Reversing the damage already done will require a much longer-term commitment.

They can position this as a war of words and elections (“Elections have consequences. We won, you lost. Get over it.” Barack Obama), but it sure looks like a call to arms. As written.

    Such a drama queen!! It’s a call to mobilize millions of voters in Nov to begin taking tRump’s toxic machine apart.

    We’re forced to fight GOP gerrymandering and voter suppression – so this election may be our last chance to take back America from the trumpsters and the Russians.

    Wish us luck! You will benefit.

      The way you clowns have been acting? Shutting down a major highway in Chiraq on a Saturday?

      You’ll be lucky if the people not up for re-election are allowed to come back.

    Today on TV, Giuliani stated that president tRump DID ask FBI Director Comey to look the other way regarding the investigation of tRump’s national security adviser Flynn. Rudy said it didn’t make any difference.

    tRump previously denied it.

    Who’s telling the truth?
