Pelosi Panics

Like many progressives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in full-blown panic mode over the reality that President Trump is going to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

Like many progressives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in full-blown panic mode over the reality that President Trump is going to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

During an interview on MSNBC, Pelosi preemptively attacked the president’s nominee, declaring what “horrible” things will happen with another conservative justice on the Supreme Court. She said:

They are on a path to undo the Affordable Care Act. They’re on a path to undo a woman’s right to choose. And there are many more issues that relate to the LBGTQ community, clean air, clean water, pollution. They’re coming after your children. Protect your children from what they are trying to do in this Court.

“They’re coming after your children”?! That’s rich coming from her, one of America’s leading advocates of abortion.

Pelosi and her party are sitting on the corpses of unborn children who have been sacrificed to the god of abortion on demand! Everyone knows abortion is THE issue driving the left. Yet she says conservatives are the ones coming for children!

But that’s not all.

Pelosi is also raising the specter of impeachment yet again, telling a New York Times reporter, “Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does.”

Not to be outdone, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to impeach Attorney General William Barr too!

Meanwhile, CNN’s Don Lemon is calling on leftists to “blow up the entire system.” He is telling Democrats that if Joe Biden wins, they must “[pack] the Supreme Court” and “get rid of the Electoral College.”

My friends, the left is serious about “fundamentally transforming” America. It’s not just a talking point. It’s not an empty threat. It means it.

This isn’t just another election. The constitutional republic our Founding Fathers created is at risk this November.

Coming Together

We will soon know who President Trump intends to nominate for the Supreme Court. The president tweeted that he will announce his nominee on Saturday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been clear that the president’s nominee will get a floor vote. Here’s some additional history bolstering the case for why this president and this Senate should fill this vacancy:

  • 15 times in U.S. history, a Supreme Court vacancy arose in a presidential election year and the president nominated someone that year.

  • 7 of those 15 times, voters had put in place an opposite-party Senate. Only 2 of these 7 nominations were confirmed, the last in 1888.

  • 8 of those 15 times, voters had chosen a Senate majority of the same party as the president. 7 of those 8 nominations were confirmed.

  • Historical precedent supported the Senate majority’s decision in 2016 and historical precedent supports the Senate majority’s decision in 2020.

Meanwhile, Sen. McConnell has been working to ensure that his caucus is committed to getting this vacancy filled, and his efforts are paying off.

Senators Grassley and Ernst of Iowa support moving forward with the nomination process. Other senators in tough reelection battles, including Senators Gardner (CO), McSally (AZ), and Tillis (NC), are all on record in favor of President Trump and the Senate filling this appointment sooner rather than later.

Even Senator Mitt Romney is on board to proceed.

And Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Sean Hannity, “We’ve got the votes to confirm the justice on the floor of the Senate before the election. And that’s what’s coming.”

While I appreciate Senator Graham’s enthusiasm, we remember what happened with the Kavanaugh confirmation battle. We know the left will do anything it can to smear this nominee in order to drag out and delay the process.

We must be ready. But this fight won’t be over once the nominee is confirmed.

We must finish this fight at the ballot box this November by reelecting President Trump, maintaining the GOP Senate majority, and electing a conservative House majority!

To Pack or Not to Pack?

Incredibly, Joe Biden refuses to give the American people a list of his Supreme Court nominees. He also refuses to stand up to the left-wing flank of his party by clearly stating whether he supports packing the Supreme Court. Biden said that addressing those issues “will shift all the focus.”

Well, guess what, Joe? There’s an open seat on the Supreme Court. This isn’t a trick question or some minor distraction. This is the huge issue right now.

The Democrat chairman of the House Judiciary Committee wants to increase the size the Supreme Court by adding four or five more seats to the court and then filling every new position with far-left, pro-abortion, anti-religious liberty and anti-Second Amendment justices.

By refusing to say whether he supports that, Biden is in fact answering the question. He will support it.

My friends, here’s what you need to understand about the left’s threats to pack the court. This has nothing to do with Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. They were promising to pack the court before she died.

Last year, The Washington Post identified 11 Democrat presidential candidates who favored packing the court with additional left-wing justices. Kamala Harris was one of them.

Remember the threats to impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh? Some radicals even want to impeach Justice Gorsuch because he’s occupying a “stolen seat.”

They will try to do it if they can, which is why every single one of these Senate races is so critically important.
