Weak-Kneed ‘Republicans’ Purse Lips for Garland/Obama Ring

Phil Jensen


kissAccording to information passed on to me originating with the Grassfire Organization, 13 “moderate” and liberal “Republicans” are going all weak-kneed and pursing their lips to kiss Barack Obama’s ring and that of his liberal Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.  They plan to meet with Garland…which would be the first step to leveraging a hearing for the liberal judge…and then on to a confirmation vote.

Here are the names:

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (NH)
Sen. James Inhofe (OK)
Sen. Mark Kirk (IL)
Sen. James Lankford (OK)
Sen. Susan Collins (ME)
Sen. John Boozman (AR)
Sen. Pat Toomey (PA)
Sen. Mike Rounds (SD)
Sen. Ron Johnson (WI)
Sen. Jerry Moran (KS)
Sen. Chuck Grassley (IA)
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK)
Sen. Jeff Flake (AZ)

This bunch of RINOs has a lame score from Conservative Review ranging from Inhofe’s best of 74% (quite a bit lower than Reagan’s 80% standard) down to Kirk’s Democrat-snuggling 20%.

To his credit, Senate Majority Mitch McConnell has managed to find or borrow some anatomy from somewhere and continue to hold the line on not even entertaining nomination hearings for any Obama SCOTUS nominee. With the recent death of Antonin Scalia, any semblance of a constitutional majority in the Supreme Court is gone. With Anthony Kenned being a coin-toss on whether he’ll join the Leftist activists on the court to undermine the Constitution, and John Roberts having proven that he’ll manufacture incoherent pretzels in order to justify the unjustifiable, there are only two reliable constitutionally-loyal justices left: Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

Over 200 years of liberty and the U.S. Constitution literally hang in the balance, and nothing in the U.S. Constitution requires congress to approve or even consider a judicial nominee. According to the Constitution, the president can nominate judges with the advice and consent of the Senate. By definition, consent is not mandatory, meaning the Republican-controlled Senate is not obligated to give its consent to Obama’s nominee. They are not even obligated to give him a hearing.

While McConnell has admirably held the line on even holding hearings on an Obama nominee (because we can be certain he would be an enemy of the Constitution, since Obama is an enemy of the Constitution), having 13 of these “Republican” tools give the slightest shred of credibility to Garland’s nomination puts unnecessary pressure on McConnell and the leadership to cave.

We the People need to let these 13 “useful idiots” know we do NOT approve of their enabling of Obama’s further efforts to undermine the U.S. Constitution. You can fax all 13 of these “Republicans” here, or you can email or obtain their phone numbers from here. Let them know you aren’t pleased, and let them know they WILL be held accountable at the ballot box.

By the way, for those of you in my state of South Dakota, note that our brand-new first-term Senator Mike Rounds (with a pathetic score of 31%–up from a low of 17% a few months ago) is doing what conservatives tried to tell people during the 2014 campaign he would do: betray conservative values, betray Republican principles, and betray the people of South Dakota and America. Those of you who supported this worthless liberal, in denying the voluminous evidence that he’s a Democrat-with-an-“R”-after-his-name, you got what you asked for. Think maybe you’ll listen to facts next time, or do you like your “Republican” senator to behave this way?
