So it has come to this.
Of course it has.
Mere hours after the announcement of Justice Ginsburg’s death, Democrats are threatening the country with a dictatorship.
They would give statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, packing the Senate with four Democratic senators. And they would pack the Supreme Court with additional seats, filling all of them with leftists. Combined with a Democrat in the White House, the radical Left would have an iron-fisted control over the U.S. government — in addition to the control they already have in the liberal “mainstream” media.
Welcome to the new Soviet Union.
Decades ago, then-Soviet Union dictator Nikita Khrushchev notoriously said, “We will bury you.” By which he meant that someday in the future socialists would take over America and get rid of capitalism and freedom.
That day has now arrived.
Here is Senate GOP Conference Chairman John Barrasso of Wyoming:
If the Democrats win the White House and the Senate and have the House, they will change the rules and they will blow up the Senate.
Or, as Missouri’s GOP Sen. Josh Hawley says:
This is the same party that looks away while rioters and looters burn down our towns. Now, the Democrats are saying they’ll burn down the Constitution. These people should not be in power.
Amen to that. But the hard fact here is remaking the United States as a leftist dictatorship is exactly what these people have in mind.
Consider this threat as headlined by Fox News:
AOC says all options ‘on the table’ to block Supreme Court nominee confirmation, including impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t rule out using impeachment as tool to block Trump’s Supreme Court pick
The story says,
Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the House “must consider” all options to block the Trump administration from pushing through a nominee to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, including possibly seeking the impeachment of President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr.…
Ocasio-Cortez’s comments come just after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” would not rule out impeachment as an option to stop Trump’s Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench.
Let’s just stop here and remind of exactly what the Constitution says of the president’s constitutional responsibility in Article II, Section II, bold print for emphasis:
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States
Which is to say, Pelosi, AOC, and company are threatening to impeach the president for doing exactly what the Constitution specifically says he must do.
But hey, they are, as Sen. Hawley says, all about burning down the Constitution, so who cares?
As the Wall Street Journal has smartly reminded, the Democrats have been on this path for a very long time. The trashing of the judicial confirmation process, which began with the “borking” of Reagan Supreme Court nominee Judge Robert Bork, has now led to this moment. The Wall Street Journal editorial headlined it this way:
That’s funny; Democrats assume everyone is as stupid as their lemmings. They’ve been threatening since Trump won to eliminate the Electoral College, pack the Supreme Court and kill the filibuster. Now, they think no one heard any of that and threaten to do all that if Trump nominates Ginsburg’s replacement… and they win majorities in the House and Senate. True to form, they threaten violence if the majority doesn’t bend to the will of the minority. They likes them some violence.
I’d be ashamed to be afraid of and subservient to a scrawny socialist like AOC.
