Democrats should threaten to pack the court. And, if McConnell pushes through a new justice and then Joe Biden wins, they should follow through.
Let's say it straight out: Tom Cotton is a racist. He condones slave labor but assigns it no value. He would never have freed a single man, but he would use bigot law to punish anyone who even holds a different opinion.
There is one person who could gum up the works of Trump's dictatorship-in-process. And he's not even in elected office. Yet. Joe Biden has said that this election is a battle for the very soul of America. So right now would be a good time for Biden to really flex on this, step up and fire a loud warning shot across the bow of Trump's henchmen. The Rule of Law is coming back in 2021...and it could be coming for them.
Why is the president allowed to use his immense public power to attack private individuals out of infantile spite? Have we dispensed with the law altogether?
Maybe a Real Estate Shyster and a bunch of brain-dead mobsters are not the best choice to lead a global pandemic response?
This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
First, Republicans told us that, "Truth isn't truth." Then, the most remorseless liar that I've ever seen informed us further that, "There's no such thing as truth." Now, Mr. Santorum would have us believe that, "Truth is irrelevant."
When Will The FBI, Or William Barr, Make It's Move To Subvert Trump's Impeachment Trial? Today?
Why do Republicans appear to be playing an all-in, "Doomsday" game. Is there no tomorrow, Mitch?
Republicans will be able to block, individually, any new witnesses. They will do this with every important witness. That's a rigged trial.
