Honestly, I don’t have any real understanding of the Nuclear Option.
I understand what it is – the Presiding Officer of the Senate just basically declares that a confirmation can proceed with a simple majority instead of a super-majority.
What I don’t understand is, if this is an option, then why is the quest for a super-majority even entertained?
Especially in this situation, where the Democrats declared they were going to filibuster – why are we spending these weeks on this confirmation when we knew it would come to the nuclear option anyway? How much taxpayer money has been wasted on this?
The Senate’s standoff on Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch showed no signs of softening Tuesday as lawmakers began the final floor debate, with Republicans and Democrats accusing each other of “unprecedented” tactics in their respective efforts to confirm or block the nominee.
Democrats have enough votes in the GOP-controlled chamber to filibuster President Trump’s high court nominee in a bid to block confirmation.
In a sign of their apparent intent, Sen. Jeff Merkeley, D-Ore., took to the Senate floor at 6:46 p.m. ET and planned to speak all night in opposition to Gorsuch’s nomination.
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he has the votes to deploy what’s known as the nuclear option — changing voting procedures to override the filibuster and confirm Gorsuch with 51 votes, as opposed to 60.
The Kentucky Republican has vowed to have the 49-year-old Gorsuch confirmed by Friday, and his warning seemed to play down the possibility of Democrats dropping their filibuster threat.
“It should be unsettling to everyone that our colleagues across the aisle have brought the Senate to this new low,” McConnell said earlier Tuesday. “Judge Gorsuch is independent, fair and has one of the most impressive resumes you will ever see.”
The Senate voted Tuesday afternoon to formally start debate, leading up to the expected vote later in the week.
Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley — chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that voted Monday to send his nomination to the floor — officially kicked off the debate.
Honestly, this whole thing is retarded to begin with.
We should not have Judges – unelected Jews, that is – making our laws.
This is a liberal concept. They decided to take authority to create law from the legislative branch and give it to the judicial branch. And it only benefits them.
Every major ruling since the politicization of the court has either:
a) been in the exact spirit of the Constitution, or
b) helped the Jew-liberal agenda.
Theoretically you could put extreme ring-wing political judges on the court that would be further right than the Constitution and disregard the Constitution in the same way liberals do in order to push an agenda.
I’m trying to figure what that would look like…
- “SCOTUS Rules Governor Can Order Summary Execution of Entire University Staff”
- “SCOTUS Rules Husband Can Kill Wife if Deemed an Irredeemable Whore”
- “SCOTUS Rules That African-Americans Owe Backpay Rent on Slave Quarters”
But the right wouldn’t do that, because the right are mostly intellectuals, following an Enlightenment philosophy.
And it’s not like if the Constitution would have actually been followed to begin with that we would be in this situation.
Stacked Court to Shut Down Jews and Sluts
What we need to do is just hope more of these people die soon, so we can stack this court with Constitutionlists and get a bunch of crap banned.
First and foremost, we need to ban abortion and affirmative action and abolish family courts.
The most pressing crisis we face as a nation is the end of monogamous marriage, and the only way to fix this issue is through legal means which strip the sluts of their unearned privileges.
We also need to end birthright citizenship and declare all these people as non-citizens, retroactively.
But my primary concern is the family. When we fix that, it will be easy to get all of the rest done. And to fix the family, we have to shut these bitches down.
