Once again showing that facts don’t matter to Democrats, the whole of the party and its handmaidens in the old media establishment are gearing up to destroy any and every pick President Donald Trump tries to make for the current vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Liberals, leftists, Democrats, slow-witted college students and their mouthpieces in the media are all gearing up for total war against whoever Donald Trump announces as his next pick for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). Most are working on no facts because Trump has yet to pick anyone and has not even tipped his hand as to who he might choose.
Campus Reform perfectly summed up the fact-free surety that whoever Trump picks will be the next Hitler by uncorking a hilarious video that shows that college students are mostly stupid twits who think they know everything about contemporary politics, even as they are woefully short on actual facts. This weekend the cameras of Campus Reform asked nitwit college students in New York City what they think of Trump’s SCOTUS pick. Naturally, each one of them thought they had valid opinions on why the person Trump picked was terrible even though… Trump… er… had yet to even make a pick!
Seriously. These idiots haven’t got a clue.
But others are also throwing around baseless accusations. Most of the left-wing media is all upset that Trump “outsourced” his SCOTUS pick to the Federalist Society — a group that advocates for conservatives to become lawyers, law school deans, and judges.
The charge is all over CNN and MSNBC. Even left-wing Senator Richard Blumenthal (D, CT) made that proclamation last weekend.
“The president’s outsourced this decision to the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation,” Blumenthal said Sunday on ABC’s This Week. “It is extraordinary. I was a law clerk to Justice Blackmon. I’ve argued cases before the Supreme Court — four of them. I’ve never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list.”
But this claim is mostly bogus. Even as every liberal just assumes that it is true, there is not a scintilla of evidence that the Federalist Society sent any such list to Trump. While it is true that Fed. Soc. executive vice president Leonard Leo has been tapped to help Trump vet judges, he is not doing so as a member of the Society. In fact, Leo left the group in order to work with Trump’s judge vetting committee. And Leo is just one member of the group helping Trump pick judges, too, not the sole arbiter.
The society itself is not directly involved with the effort to pick judges and it never has been. All this nonsense from the media is just a bunch of baseless assumptions backed up by no facts. Yes, Trump has consulted a few members here and there as part of the legitimate process of vetting judicial candidates, but he has in no way “outsourced” his selection process to the Federalist Society.
White House counsel Don McGahn also recently noted that this “outsourcing” claim is idiotic. He said, “seeking advice from Leonard Leo and many members of the Federalist Society is not outsourcing the judicial selection process. The fact is we all share the same vision of the judicial role, and we welcome input from many sources.”
It is no different than when Obama sought advice from radical leftists in the American Constitution Society who shared his own views on the proper role his judicial picks should serve. It’s the way this whole thing works!
The Fact is, this claim that Trump “outsourced” the assembly of his list of judges is fake news. Don’t let the left get away with it.
Oh, but the shrill wackjobs who pretend to be “journalists” are screeching from the rooftops already. NPR’s chief gargoyle, Nina Totenberg, for one, just exclaimed that a Trump SCOTUS pick will be the “end of the world as we know it.”
Seriously. Can you BE more hyperbolic and silly, Nina?
Totenberg made her Chicken-Little-like pronouncement on NPR’s radio show All Things Considered on June 27:
“Well, just for starters, Roe v. Wade might be reversed. Lots of federal regulations might be thrown out, might be a different, more — less tolerant view of gun regulation and affirmative action. He was the fifth vote to uphold affirmative action in higher education. That could change, too – so as R.E.M. once put it, the end of the world as we know it.”
Totenberg’s childish and tiresome shrillness reminds me of this video clip:
The “mass hysteria” isn’t relegated solely to the tax-funded NPR. Nearly every liberal “news” outlet is already ginning up the “We oppose (put nominee’s name here) for the Supreme Court.”
For instance, liberals already tried to destroy federal appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett as being “too religious” because she is a pro-life Catholic. After learning she is on the list, a number of left-wing groups and their props in the media attacked Barrett saying she would jeopardize Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act.
A typical lie about Barrett came from Friends of the Earth which warned: “Amy Coney Barrett believes judges should be bound by their religious faith — not the law. She doesn’t belong on our nation’s highest court.”
However, Barrett had already answered to that question when she was confirmed for the appeals court when she said that Roe v Wade was settled opinion and she respected it as such.
They didn’t know if Trump would pick her, but it didn’t matter. The left unleashed its attack dogs regardless.
Anyway, the whole point is there has been no candidate announced, yet the media is already smearing people in an effort to defame them and destroy them just on the rumor that they might be on some list somewhere.
That’s how the media works, America. It works to seek and destroy anyone on the right and then posts a little seen correction later — if they bother to correct the record at all.
Remember, everything you see from the mainstream media is built on lies.
