If Alexander Hamilton had been nominated for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court today, Democrats would likely oppose him. About the court, Hamilton said: “[A] limited Constitution ...can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing. ..To deny this would be to affirm...that men acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid...”
I thought we had seen it all from radical feminists — and what we've seen is way, way more than anyone other than a gynecologist needs to see. Six years ago, Code Pink zealots traipsed across the fruited plain in giant female reproductive organ costumes demanding “respect” for women's bodies and women's abortion rights. They called themselves “dancing vaginas.”
The morning after President Trump named D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his second nominee to the Supreme Court, Tuesday’s CBS This Morning rushed to get reaction from Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. In the softball interview that followed, the liberal lawmaker was asked how he might “stop the nomination” and whether it would be a “betrayal of the party” for any Democrat to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
Hours after the U.S. Inspector General office released a report on Thursday regarding liberal media bias in the Department of Justice and the FBI, radio host Mark Levin used an appearance on that day’s edition of Fox News Channel’s Hannity program to address the fact that “those people had as their purpose to interfere” with the 2016 presidential election. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, the conservative activist also declared that this interference was “worse than the Russians … could have ever dreamed of” and added: “In James Comey’s FBI, there was collusion" and “a culture of leaks” to liberals in the press.
Wednesday, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer opposed the nomination of A. Marvin Quattlebaum Jr. as a South Carolina federal district judge. The nominee was confirmed by a 69-28 vote. Schumer's objection, cloaked as complaining about "the overall lack of diversity in President Trump's (judicial) selections": Quattlebaum is white. Any senator opposing a non-white nominee based on skin color would have received saturation media coverage within minutes, but the establishment press is virtually ignoring Schumer's remarks.
It didn’t take long after the three-day federal government shutdown ended for liberals in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media to do all they can to assign blame for what is being called the “Trump Shutdown” by CNN Newsroom guest and Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), who branded it as “insane” and was a result of the “complete ineptitude of this president and Republican leadership.”
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday placed the blame for the government shutdown on Donald Trump and the Republicans. Co-host Gayle King pressured the President to “do more” on ending the stalemate. The journalists failed to point out that Chuck Schumer in 2013 vowed not to shut down the government over immigration.
On day one of the 2018 government shutdown, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came out and claimed that he offered President Trump funding for his border wall in exchange for protection for so-called Dreamers via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he turned it down. Since then, the liberal media have been running around claiming that Trump was the reason an agreement couldn’t be reached.
Hours ahead of a possible government shutdown, CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta debased his already self-centered act by playing the role of sycophant on Friday morning for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) by tangling with Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney over basic facts about Senate procedure.
Back in 2013, with Democrats controlling the Senate and White House, a study by the Media Research Center determined that the broadcast networks mostly blamed Republicans for that year's government shutdown. In the midst of the shutdown, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (now the Democratic Senate leader) actually went on ABC's This Week on October 6, 2013 to assure host George Stephanopoulos that Democrats would never shut the government down over an issue such as immigration.
“Resistance” leader of late-night television, CBS’s Stephen Colbert, doesn’t even pretend that his show is only catered to the country’s most die-hard liberals at this point. On his January 15 show, he invited Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on as his guest, to basically parrot what he does every night on his show: mock Trump and slam the right as racists who only care about the wealthy.
On Tuesday night, Senate Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer got upset because too many other people were allegedly talking while he was making a speech on the Senate floor. CNN turned Sen. Schumer's complaint into a rude-Republicans moment, and failed to note that the supposed substance of Schumer's speech was a laughable crock.
