ACB Confirmed To Supreme Court, Many Democrats Are Not Taking It Well

Of course, Democrats not taking it well is nothing that should surprise anyone, right?

Democrats warn GOP will regret Barrett confirmation

Democratic senators are warning that Republicans will regret confirming Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court as the Democrats face pressure from the left to nix the filibuster and expand the court if they win back the majority.

Democrats are facing calls from their base to enact rules changes and broad systemic reforms after President Trump, who lost the popular vote in 2016, was able to put three justices on the bench, in part because Republicans refused to give Merrick Garland, former President Obama’s final nominee, a hearing or a vote in 2016.

Several Democratic senators warned as part of the chamber’s debate over Barrett that Republicans have lost the right to kvetch if Democrats win back the majority and change the rules. Republicans nixed the filibuster in 2017 for Supreme Court nominees and reduced the debate time in 2019 for lower court and executive picks.

Perhaps the Dems should have thought of this before Harry Reid nuked the filibuster for judicial nominees. Hey, maybe it would have been better for Judge Garland to sit in a room for several days, being put on display, before the GOP voted against him.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), in a statement after Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night, warned that Republicans might “rue the day.”

“With this vote, my Republican colleagues forfeit their right to call procedural fouls,” Whitehouse said.

This vote? Well, Mitch McConnell has something to say

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on the Senate floor Monday night that America is a “constitutional republic,” and the government’s “legitimacy” does not arise from the left’s “feelings.”

McConnell said before the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, “Our Democratic colleagues keep repeating the word illegitimate as if repetition would make it true …We’re a constitutional republic. Legitimacy does not flow from their feelings.”

Of course, that doesn’t stop the caterwauling. Many of them are demanding that the court be packed, that lower courts be packed, all because they lost. But, perhaps the worst take?

Coons: ‘Hundreds’ of Trump’s Lower Court Judges Shouldn’t ‘Be Allowed to Sit Peaceably’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said that there should be a “wide-open conversation” on rebalancing the courts, including the circuit and district courts, where there are “hundreds” of judges who shouldn’t “be allowed to sit peaceably without our re-examining the process, the results, and the consequences.”

Coons said, “[W]e’ve got to have a wide-open conversation about how do we rebalance our courts. Yes, the two Supreme Court [seats] that have been stolen through these processes that are just wildly hypocritical have been used to jam through partisan nominees. But we’ve got to look at our federal courts as a whole, Rachel. Because we’ve seen hundreds of conservative judges put on circuit courts and district courts all over this country in the last four years, in many cases, too young, too unqualified, and too far right to be allowed to sit peaceably without our re-examining the process, the results, and the consequences.”

“Sit peaceably.” Does seem rather a threat, does it not? And, based on how unhinged and violent so many Democrats have become, they will hear this and become threatening and violent. Imagine a Republican said this……yup, you know how the Credentialed Media and Democrats would portray it.

    The Senate confirmed ABC and then Mitch put a lid on the Senate without another round of aid to Americans suffering from unemployment, depleted savings, shitty health insurance, Covid…

    Trump’s administration directly admitted that they are no longer trying to contain the pandemic. In fact, they now support the Great Barrington Declaration, recommending that Covid run rampant in the communities but with isolation of Americans most likely to die from the disease. This approach will kill another million Americans or so. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.

    GOPhers have their priorities, and it’s not the American people.

      The Americans suffering from unemployment, depleted savings, missing health insurance, Sisolak Sneeze… are actually suffering from Tyrannical Democrat governors.

      They did? Funny how Fake News hasn’t said anything.

      FIFY

      You mean like the 220 million Super Predator Joe says have already died?

    How bad does a person have to suck at math and statistics to think, as Elwood does, that another million or so Americans will die from Covid??

    There are only 1.4 million nursing home residents in the US, and many of them reside in states with Republican governors, so Dem governors have no chance of killing anywhere near a million more people with the virus.

    Now, there are over a million Jews in New York, and Cuomo seems to be wanting his own Kristallnacht there, but you will be hard pressed to classify the results of his pogrom as “covid deaths”.

  3. Kye says:

    Idiots like Elwood and his commie comrades classify every death as Wuhan Democrat Plague. They’ve been blaming Trump since the commie Chinese released the plague back in Dec. Everything is Trump’s fault even tho he listened to all their supposed “experts” from CDC. Who and all the other Fauci’s that got into the act. He did what every rational person would have done but all they do is bitch. Right now America ins on track for about 2.8 million which is normal. No sign of an additional 250,000 dead Americans because there was no additional 250,000 Americans that died of Red Chinese Democrat Cuomo Plague.

    But as you posed Phil, exactly how bad does one need to be at math AND MORTALITY RATES to realize this is a Democrat lead Panicdemic. No more.

    Trying to get Elwood to stop lying and spreading communist Chinese propaganda is like trying to get joggers to quit shooting each othe.
