As word got out that President Trump met with Supreme Court frontrunner Amy Coney Barrett at the White House, Democrat panic went from bad to worse! The Democrats are openly threatening, as one headline put it, violence, arson, and civil war if Trump and the Republicans follow through with their intent at filling the Supreme Court seat vacated by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And yet, it’s becoming increasingly clear to everyone involved, politician and pundit alike, that the Democrats are essentially powerless to stop this.
The reactions to news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death couldn’t be more dissimilar. President Trump’s response has been respectful, measured, and calculated. Trump released a new list of potential SCOTUS picks literally days before Ginsburg’s death, and within mere hours after the announcement of the vacant seat, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell confirmed that he was in the process of securing the votes needed to fill the vacancy. If Trump didn’t have an inside scoop on Ginsburg’s deteriorating condition, his timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
By contrast, the Democrats are absolutely falling apart right before our very eyes. One pundit described their collective meltdown as what he called the ‘Armageddon Option’, a hysterical super-threat comprised of all the possible retaliations that the Democrats could inflict if the Republicans dare fill Ginsburg’s seat before the election. The litany of retaliatory measures includes the threat of stacking the court (which Ginsburg ironically opposed!), or the refiling of Articles of Impeachment against Trump to try to stall the process (the first impeachment was so politically disastrous that Trump is begging the Democrats to try again!).
But perhaps the most absurd hysterics are coming from the Twitter-verse, which includes calls by verified account users to ‘burn the entire f---g thing down’. For example, a Canadian political science professor actually tweeted out: “Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.” And perhaps most bizarre of all, leftist activist Michael Moore is calling on Nancy Pelosi to shut down the government to prevent Trump and the Republicans from filling Ginsburg’s seat. Now, what precisely shutting down the House of Representatives has to do with a Senate-specific responsibility is anyone’s guess, but Moore’s impulsive insistence simply betrays that he, like the rest of the Democrats, appears to have been caught completely off guard by news of Ginsburg’s death.
The incoherent hysterics from the left reveals another thing: they know they can’t stop this. The mainstream media is reluctantly, indeed mournfully, admitting this. To successfully thwart Trump and the GOP, the Democrats would have to flip four Republican senators, a highly implausible feat. Indeed, Sen. Ted Cruz has recently affirmed that there are indeed 51 votes ready to confirm whoever President Trump nominates. Lindsay Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has already promised that he’s going to ram the nominee through, especially after the absurd antics the Democrats humiliated themselves with during the Brett Kavanaugh nomination process. Graham has said openly that those antics have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Democrats are simply not serious about vetting a potential Supreme Court Justice; instead, they care only about defaming, debunking, and destroying! And so, they’ve lost their chance to vet.
But the Republicans have not; if the GOP senators are satisfied (excluding two or three RINO turncoats), they will ram through a vote and the Supreme Court will have a solid conservative majority, ending once and for all nearly 70 years of leftwing judicial activism going back to the Warren Court. It is being reported that McConnell has confirmed that he has secured the votes he needs for the confirmation to go through, and it does look like we are looking at a solidly conservative Supreme Court for the next generation.
And the best part? The Democrats are absolutely powerless to stop it.
