Schumer and the Democrats admit they are against the actual parameters and duties of the Supreme Court
The judges in the USA have the responsibility of interpreting the laws of our country according to the words of the law. They are not supposed to apply their own political, social and/or moral philosophies to the laws of our country. The judge is supposed to be a neutral and non-partisan expert in the laws and the legal connections that they make.
“Schumer pronounced judgment on Gorsuch, saying that while the judge met all the legal qualifications, he wasn’t the liberal judge Republicans prevented President Obama from nominating in his final year. “Judge Gorsuch was unable to sufficiently convince me that he’d be an independent check on a president who has shown almost no restraint from executive overreach,” Schumer said. “Second, he was unable to convince me that he would be a mainstream justice who could rule free from the biases of politics and ideology.”
Why would a judge be liberal? Wouldn’t that make him a poor judge? Wouldn’t that mean the judge was unethical? Schumer and the democrats only want a judge that aligns to their anti-USA policies and practices. They want a judge that doesn’t agree with Trump. They are not after the fair and judicial equality as promised in our Constitution, Bill of Rights and so on. They want an UNETHICAL AND LIBERAL ACTIVIST JUDGE.
A possible explanation to Nunes’ actions: 47 HARD DRIVES AND 600M PAGES OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION ACQUIRED
It seems even more apparent to me that Nunes’ actions were because he realized the congressional committees supposedly involved in the matters about surveillance and intelligence collection were actually complicit in the activities by O’s administration and the FBI and NSA etc.
At this link you will see the letter and backstory to the actions of Mr. Klayman who is the Chairman and General Counsel of Freedom Watch, Inc. which ALREADY HAS THE EVIDENCE THAT O’s administration and alphabet-soup agencies were surveying and collecting private intelligence on for example of prominent Americans, such as the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 16 judges, prominent businessmen, and others such as President Donald Trump. Note – these apparently are individuals who would disagree with O and his liberal democrats who were busy changing the USA into an unsafe socialist country which encouraged the illegal immigration of extremist-muslims from all over the world and illegal immigrants via Mexico.
Our government has become willingly hijacked because of the ignorant and stupid voting practices of the citizens of the USA in electing O for two terms.
Understand this: if you voted for Trump to be President of the USA it may very well be that your senator and representative are cunningly working to undermine his presidency and his agenda which we have elected him to do. We all need to put almost unbearable pressure on our congress members to fully back him and work to get things fixed in our country. TPTB will be throwing BIG $$$ behind Congress members who are anti-Trump and in essence anti-USA. We need to push back harder than when we pushed back against them in the recent presidential election.
Did you see the stories yesterday of individuals on the intelligence committee and other Congress members exasperating and swirling innuendo about the actions of Nunes in not consulting them before going to Trump and to citizens of the country. You know why? SUPPRESSION OF THE FACTS WAS NOT ACCOMPLISHED!
Reading and hearing about the fact of Dems behavior yesterday at the speech by President Trump (it is SO good to be able to type out the name of the President of the USA ).
One great summary is located here – which by the way is a great resource about the news and some fair handed analysis.
I commented on the story but the more I think about it, I figured I should comment here.
Hypocrisy & immaturity – trademarks of the Dems. But u know what it may have clearly revealed to everyone with a discerning spirit – that the list of “causes/issues” really isn’t aligned to their values/passions/beliefs. Their values and passion is ALL about how to keep power. So they lost the Presidential election and control over the Congress, so now they sulk because they want those in their home states to continue to vote for them in so they can retain their power & prestige. Which then begs to ask/inquire about – so then why would the Dems actually manage the issues in a manner that they could be as quickly as possible – resolved to the best of its ability? Why would they handle some sensitive subject matter in a way that would promote unity and understanding instead of division? Because if they would do so – they lose their identity in politics and quite possibly their power and prestige —- their office.
“This country was started by a bunch of Christians from Europe, who had been influenced by the preaching and teaching of Luther, Calvin, Knox, and the Reformers; they came over here and settled. When the time came to set up a government, the leaders had to base it on the Bible to get the Christians to accept it. One of those “Founding Fathers” (John Adams) said,
“Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”
If that’s the case, this nation is shot. The culture of the Pilgrims, Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards, Asbury, Cartwright, Moody, Sunday, et al., is gone. The church in America no longer has any influence. When the basic “freedom” is the right to fornicate at will with whomever (or whatever!), instead of the freedom to worship and serve God as the Bible says, it’s over.”
Kudos to Matthew Continetti column on “Donald Trump and the New American Patriotism”.
2 cents: Also it was great to have a President of the USA not refer to himself over a hundred times while pontificating for a long time.
Great to have a President of the USA who wants to put the focus on the national interest of our country instead of the global interest of TPTB.
Article below and link here.
Donald Trump’s inaugural address was a stirring call for national unity and a declaration of war against the establishment in Washington, D.C. The speech was vintage Trump: politically incorrect, critical of both parties, amped up, biting, strongly delivered, and wildly ambitious. Anyone who believed Trump would change his beliefs or style when he assumed the office of the presidency was proven wrong. He’s not going to change. And he’s not going to let up.
Trump espoused his worldview in remarkably few words. He is a vituperative critic of the post-Cold War international system. Where the architects of that system see it as a bulwark of stability and global prosperity, Trump sees it as diminishing the United States in favor of foreign countries and an international class of wealthy political and financial elites. Washington has been serving its own interests, he said, and not the people’s. That ends now. His America will turn inward, focusing on domestic stability, education, infrastructure, and jobs. The one exception will be the fight against Islamic terrorism, where Trump is prepared to join with autocracies in pursuit of common goals.
Trump forcefully rejected identity politics. Racial and ethnic identities, he said, are less important than our status as American citizens. “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.” There are no hyphenated Americans in this worldview, only Americans and outsiders. And Americans are to be privileged over outsiders. It’s been said that American presidents are replaced by their opposites. What a contrast to Barack Obama’s second inaugural address, where he called for a “world without walls.”
This was not a programmatic speech. There will be more policy specifics when Trump addresses a joint session of Congress on his budget proposal. Instead the inaugural address was Trump distilled: nationalist, populist, and ready to fight.
He better be. Trump delivered his combative speech in the midst of the very establishment he is attempting to overthrow. Surrounded by Bushes, Clintons, Obamas, Bidens, and Ryans, Trump aligned himself with the crowd against the celebrities and VIPs on the dais. Mass rallies, social media, and sheer force of personality are his weapons as he attempts to defenestrate the ruling class in Washington and bring a new spirit of patriotism to America. He draws strength from his gut connection with Jacksonian America—a connection deepened and enriched by one of the most combative, polarizing, bold, evocative, and indeed revolutionary inaugural addresses in American history.
PLEASE – on your first day in office release to the world the proof that Israel has that the anti-semitic resolution recently written was by O’s administration.
PLEASE – release a week later the frivolous “proof” that O was wheeling and dealing that MSM has as usual embraced which supposedly proves Russia helping you in the election.
You and your administration need to communicate to the citizens of the country first in methods/ways outside the MSM and then to the MSM. This is the only way to force the MSM in reporting truth from your administration.
