    McConnell Admonishes Schumer’s SCOTUS Threats, Schumer Walks Back Threats… Kind of

    “Every time Democrats try to threaten sitting judges, we are reminded exactly—exactly—why the Framers gave them life tenure and salary protection.” and

    Is anyone buying Schumer’s nonpology?

    During a pro-abortion rally, Senate Majority Leader Schumer threatened Supreme Court Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

    When Chief Justice Roberts responded, a Schumer spokesman doubled down, accusing Roberts of colluding with the “right wing.”

    Thursday, McConnell rebuked Schumer’s remarks from the Senate floor. Schumer addressed the chamber after McConnell and claimed he didn’t mean to be quite so harsh and that he was addressing Republican lawmakers and not justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. Also, that he’s from Brooklyn.

    McConnell isn’t buying it:

    And neither do I. Schumer’s spox doubled down on the remarks and lashed out at Chief Justice Roberts, so spare me the “harsh language” nonsense.

    Schumer’s recantation (sort of):

    “Now, I should not have used the words I used yesterday. They didn’t come out the way I intended to. My point was that there would be political consequences, political consequences, for President Trump and Senate Republicans if the Supreme Court, with the newly confirmed justices, stripped away a woman’s right to choose.

    Of course I didn’t intend to suggest anything other than political and public opinion consequences for the Supreme Court, and it is a gross distortion to imply otherwise. I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language. I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. I never, never would do such a thing. And Leader McConnell knows that, and Republicans who are busy manufacturing outrage over these comments know that, too.

    Now, what will remain long after the clamor over my comments dies down is the issue at hand: A woman’s constitutional right to choose and Republican attempts to invalidate it. The fact that my Republican colleagues have worked systematically over the course of decades to install the judicial infrastructure to take down Roe v. Wade and do very real damage to the country and to the American way of life, that is the issue that will remain. And we owe, I owe, an obligation to the women of America to fight for their constitutional rights. I yield the floor.”

    As usual, the Dems apply different rules to their comrades than they do to their opponents.

    Dems are always excused for intemperate speech, Republicans never. And Dems never forget a Republican’s sin, no matter how abject the apology.

    Come to think of it, my ex is a Dem. 😛

    The thing that I can’t understand is this: The continued uproar about a SCOTUS ruling 47 years ago that has NEVER been codified into law. Democrats have controlled both chambers of Congress and the Presidency at the same time, multiple times, since that ruling and have never passed a bill making this the “law of the land” as they frequently claim. Why?

      Because the supreme court has said it’s already the law of the land, and can’t be changed by any statute. And if it weren’t, Congress would not have the power to pass such a law.

    Schumer is a liar, the Democrats have been playing Judges for decades to get what they want, even to the detriment of we the people. McConnell, anticipated Schume’s arguments, and tore them apart. The KKK is still strong in the Democrat party. They just traded white hoods, for black masks.
