Gross tactics as always from Pelosi. Doesn’t she seem to always run to the media every time something doesn’t go her way, and it’s always a crazy, unhinged rant. She is at it again, and this time her story sounds a little conspiracy theory like. She is claiming a whole lot of crazy stuff including the Republican party coming after the children of Americans. She’s lost it.
Her “warning” to Americans is that by GOP fulfilling their contitutional duty to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, they are trying to come after the children of Americans. What in the world kind of nonsense is this?
“A great part of the west is on fire. Our south — the gulf coast is battered by hurricanes,” Pelosi said. “We have a pandemic in the country. We’re fighting for our heroes, our state and local government and federal employees who our health care, our first responders, our teachers, our teachers, our sanitation, transportation workers.”
“We want them to test, trace, treat, wear masks, separate and the rest and we need public employees to do that. So we’re not about shutting down government. And it’s not a lever,” Pelosi continued. “By the way, the Republicans don’t believe in governance. It’s a welcome thing for them to shut down government. That’s why they have done it over and over. But in addition to that, you think if we shut down government they would say, ‘okay, now we won’t move forward with the justice?’ No, they won’t. They won’t. Because they are on a path to undo the Affordable Care Act. They’re on a path to undo a woman’s right to choose and there are many more issues that relate to the LGBTQ commu–.”
“Clean air, clean water, pollution. They’re coming after your children,” Pelosi said. “Protect your children from what they are trying to do in this court.”
You can see it ALL for yourself here:
First, she prematurely spouted off about a round 2 of trying to impeach Trump, then it was shutting down the government, and now it is a call to Americans to save their children by not letting GOP fill the SCOTUS seat. The logic of the law means nothing to her, she is now making things up as she goes.
Ironically, Democrats themselves responded to the idea of court becoming conservative when they literally threatened to fill the court with multiple new justices if they are to win back the Senate and White House this election. Ginsburg however, did warn them against doing this, even calling it a “bad idea” leading to the court appearing to be partisan.
“There is no fixed number in the Constitution, so this court has had as few as five and as many as 10. Nine seems to be a good number and it’s been that way for a long time,” Ginsburg said. “I have heard that there are some people on the Democratic side who would like to increase the number of judges. I think that was a bad idea when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to pack the court, his plan was for every justice who stays on the court past the age of 70, the president would have the authority to nominate another justice. If that plan had been effective, the court’s number would have swelled immediately from nine to 15 and the president would have six appointments to make.”
“You mentioned before the court appearing partisan, well if anything would make the court appear partisan, it would be that—one side saying, ‘when we’re in power, we’re going to enlarge the number of judges, so we want to have more people who will vote the way we want them to,’” Ginsburg added. “So, I am not at all in favor of that solution to what I see as a temporary situation.”
