Emperor Barack H. Obama and his sacrificial lamb, Merrick Garland, chief judge of the D.C. Appeals Court.
AND THE LOSER IS…….US
Your intrepid reporter had the unfortunate circumstance of being in my eye doctors’ office while Jugears went before the adoring media and praise the Clinton-appointed barrister. He’s 63, so he’s not intended to be voted on because Barry wants somebody who can take 30-40 years to disfigure whatever is left of the nation when he heads for Hawaii. He’s being hailed as a “moderate.” So was Steven Breyer when H.W. was conned into nominating him. How’d that work out?
Obama’s Supreme Court justice nominee wells up over ‘greatest honor’ of his life — as Republicans line up to block him from ever getting onto the bench.
Obama urged senators ‘to play it straight’ and give Garland the consideration he is afforded by the Constitution.
‘I hope they are fair. That is all,’ Obama said today.
YEAH, WE KINDA HOPED THE DEMS WOULD BE FAIR WITH ROBERT BORK
The Senate Judiciary Committee must give the green light for a hearing to go forward and its Republican chair responded to Obama’s speech with a statement reconfirming its unwillingness.
McConnell, Grassley Voted Against Obama’s SCOTUS Pick In 1997
I don’t even have to look him up to know that not a minority + prior votes against him = very left.
McConnell Says ‘No’ to Merrick Garland for SCOTUS, Citing ‘Biden Rule’
Republicans have already vowed that there will be no vote on his nomination through the end of 2016, with Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) citing the “Biden rule,” i.e. that nominations should not happen in a lame duck presidential election year.
Senator Harry Reid
I hope the President’s nomination of an exceptionally qualified nominee will convince Republicans to change course. #DoYourJob
HEY, DICKHEAD: REMEMBER IN 2015 WHEN YOU SINGLE-HANDEDLY REWROTE THE RULES FOR APPROVING JUDICIAL NOMINEES SO YOU PONDSCUM COULD PACK THE COURTS?
Obama Posts NCAA Brackets Before SCOTUS Pick
AT LEAST THE PRICK HAS HIS PRIORITIES IN ORDER
Obama has made an annual spectacle of his bracket picks, leading critics to comment that he spends more time on basketball, and on pop culture in general, than he does on addressing the nation’s urgent priorities.
This year, as Breitbart Sports reported, Obama chose a conventional bracket, choosing just one upset (Hawaii over California) and picking Kansas to win it all. His Final Four for the men’s side are Kansas, Texas A&M, North Carolina, and Michigan State.
THATS ABOUT ALL OF THIS CRAP I CAN TAKE
The univac has crashed twice today wanting to update software I have no idea about. All I know is I tried updating a malware program once and wound up importing stuff I couldn’t delete. I had to get my now-ex techhie to do it. So if it dies in the middle of something you’ll know why.
ON TO THE WHINING
In the span of about two days our elected representatives went from ‘no judicial appointments until after the election’ to ‘we’ll give the nominee a hearing.’ There was no doubt in anyone’s mind they’d fold like a cheap suit, I just hoped it would take a little longer before they waved the white flag of surrender.
Judiciary chairman open to hearing for Supreme Court pick
Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said he backs Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s view that Obama’s successor should make the nomination of a lifetime appointment. But Grassley didn’t rule out holding confirmation hearings and a vote by his panel on an Obama selection.
GOP Showing Signs Of Beginning To Back Down From Pledge To Block Obama SCOTUS Pick
The Golfer-In-Chief took time from his busy recreational foray to hold a “press conference” with hand-picked reporters asking hand-picked questions. He made it clear he’s going to get the communist he wants to finish off the country he despises.
He didn’t even bother to put on a tie.
The first rumor was it would be a Hindu named Sri Srinivasan
Obama nominated to D.C. Circuit & may nominate now was confirmed on a 97-0 vote in 2013. McConnell, Cruz, Rubio voted yes
Like all flaming liberals,he would pretend to be moderate and say all the right things until he was confirmed.
NOW COMES A MORE LIKELY SCENARIO:
Projection: Loretta Lynch ‘Likely’ To Be Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee
The most revered and deliberative court will be reduced to Stevie B. and the Four Bitches. An old crone, a ‘wise Latina’, a Jewish dyke and a female Eric Holder. All given to Obama on a silver platter by the worthless trash who call themselves republicans. It’s certain the most vulnerable GOP senators will raise a stink, but they may have underestimated the firestorm it would ignite from a population that’s already fed up with the lies, the betrayals and the collusion.
Democrat voters will accept anything from their candidates. Lies, hypocrisy, corruption. It doesn’t matter as long as the free stuff keeps coming. Democrats are elected on a platform of governmental control of everything, taxation on a shrinking middle class, overt race-baiting and the wholesale slaughter of the unborn. They keep their promises.
Republicans are the polar opposite. They promise reform, smaller government, less regulation, the sanctity of life. But when they get to DC it all goes by the wayside and they join their colleagues for dinner parties, vacations on some big donors’ money, and making empty promises until it’s re-election time and they have to pretend to be conservative again. See: John McCain.
Our liberties will evaporate with every new court edict and we can do nothing about it. We never had a chance.
The good news is that my cataract surgery yesterday was a success. According to my checkup today my vision is now 20/20.
Shockingly, the nurses all remembered me from my first procedure 4 weeks ago. DW says sometimes I’m like a bloody wreck with multiple fatalities that you witness. You never quite forget the trauma. When the anesthesiologist came by to meet me, I said: Pump a gallon in me, Allen, then slip the juice to me, Bruce. He asked me what I was talking about, so I started singing the 1956 psycho-billy classic, Transfusion, by Nervous Norvus. This will mess with your head.
TODAY’S FEEL-GOOD MOMENT:
Sniper Decapitates ISIS Leader Teaching Beheading Class
One minute he was standing there and the next his head had exploded. The commander remained standing upright for a couple of seconds before collapsing and that’s when panic set in. We later heard most of the recruits deserted.
The Dan .338 bolt-action rifle features a .338 LAPUA Magnum bullet which tumbles end-over-end once it hits flesh, displacing the liquid within a body in a process called “hydrostatic shock.” Once the bullet hits a body it creates a large cavity within the target, leaving a massive wound as it exits. To see an example of how this process works, watch the video below.
SO MUCH FOR THE GOOD NEWS
Just as predicted, the democrats are whining about GOP “obstructionism” for planning to block Barry’s judicial nomination. They sang a different tune when George W. was in office. After all the uproar, nobody doubts he’ll get what he wants one way or the other. The end justifies the means. That’s how they roll.
In other news, the reply section has:
Hillary barking like a dog (I wish I were kidding)
A former victim telling how Bent Penis used to put on her frillies and play his saxophone
Donald Trump again threatening to go third party
Gary Sinise giving a shoutout to the troops
The White house giving a shoutout to worthless punk, Kanye West (but has no time for dead policemen)
A few other things.
There was a republican debate last night. From what I read, it got pretty contentious. In the end, it really won’t matter much. The cancer known as The Great Society that was inflicted on us by Lyndon Johnson has spread to all corners. The country was so strong, it took decades to succumb to the evil of socialism. First, breaking up the family by replacing the father with a welfare check. Then came free love, drug use became popular and to a large extent accepted. The leftists who protested the Vietnam War and spit on returning soldiers are now democrat politicians, newspaper editors, and college professors. They have done yeoman’s work spreading the disease with help from a union of teachers more concerned with tenure than actually teaching. Poor kids are trapped in failing schools because the liberals want no part of charter schools where a poor kid could have a chance of breaking the grip of dependency that keeps the left in control of everything.
Still, we managed to barely keep our heads above the rising floodwaters of taxation, regulation, and the terminal disease known as Barack Hussein Obama. I had hoped that by the time the communists took control of the Supreme Court I wouldn’t be here to see it. That hope was dashed yesterday with the passing of Antonin Scalia. I’m sure Barack got a diamond-hard erection when he found out he will now complete his sorry legacy with the permanent shift of the Supreme Court for the rest of time. Exploding deficits, nationalized healthcare, 100 million on the government dole, flooding the country with enough illegal voters-in-waiting for a permanent democrat tyranny, the rise of Islamic terrorism worldwide, and the forced participation of Christians in the debauchery of a homosexual lifestyle.
If you think you know how deep into the sewer the leftards can sink, you’re not even close. If you’ve read any comments already, I’m sorry. If you haven’t, consider yourself lucky. I’ll never post any of it here, I love the people too much. It is beyond vile. The DNC is already fundraising off his death. Hillary made the comment that republicans would “dishonor” the Constitution if they didn’t give Obama what he wants. If anybody embodies dishonor, it’s the Clintons. Obama plans to name a successor shortly, probably within a few weeks. Then the charade will begin. McConnell is claiming there will not be a vote until after a new president is elected. The whiny little pissant Harry Reid is already complaining about how awful it would be to delay the vote. Remember, he’s the one who unilaterally changed the rules from a super majority to a simple majority to force through hundreds of Barry’s hand-picked stooges for the courts. We all know how that’s going to end up. I had a number of links, but I’ve decided not to post any at this time. I’m having surgery on my other eye tomorrow, so it may be a time before I post again.
Ben Shapiro,writing for Breitbart had the same notion as I did on hearing the news yesterday:
Antonin Scalia’s Death Could Mark End of Constitution
Unlike Kennedy, Scalia represented a consistent vote for a Constitution beyond modern progressive power politics. But with his death, President Obama now has the power to appoint a fifth justice to join hard-left social engineers Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. If the Republican Senate allows President Obama to select Scalia’s successor, the left will have a complete monopoly on the Supreme Court. Within the next few years, Citizens United will be overturned, restoring limits on free speech; the Supreme Court will render the Second Amendment meaningless by reinterpreting the right to bear arms as a non-personal right; freedom of religion will be made subservient to same-sex marriage and abortion priorities; the death penalty will be ruled unconstitutional; unions will be allowed to continue confiscating the dollars of people who disagree with them politically; redistricting along leftist lines will return. Scalia ensured that the Supreme Court wasn’t a transformative institution; now it will become the chief tool in the left’s arsenal.
It’s a sad commentary on the state of conservative politics that the only thing standing between the United States and the death of its founding document was a brilliant 79-year-old jurist. But unless Republicans stand up on their hind legs now, that will certainly be the case.
I wish I’d never seen this day come.
IT’S OVER. ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING CONSTITUTIONALISTS ON THE SUPREME COURT PASSED AWAY TODAY.
Supreme Court Justice Scalia dies
Scalia, who was 79, was the longest-serving justice on the high court. His death is sure to trigger a pitched political battle in Washington, with President Obama likely to nominate a successor before the November elections.
OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS WILL BE BUT A MEMORY SOON. THE BASTARD IN THE WHITE HOUSE WILL GET THE MOST RADICAL COMMUNIST JUDGE HE CAN FIND.
IT WAS A GREAT COUNTRY WHILE IT LASTED.
In his dissent on the SCOTUS gay marriage decision, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote:
Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.
The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.
George Takei twisted this into an obscenity, then called Justice Thomas a “clown in black-face” for saying what he had not said:
And for him to say, slaves have dignity. I mean, doesn’t he know that slaves were in chains? That they were whipped on the back. If he saw the movie 12 Years a Slave, you know, they were raped. And he says they had dignity as slaves or – My parents lost everything that they worked for, in the middle of their lives, in their 30s. His business, my father’s business, our home, our freedom and we’re supposed to call that dignified? Marched out of our homes at gun point. I mean, this man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.
