Merrick Garland Seat Stolen by Republicans

In an unprecedented move, Senate Republicans vowed to deny holding confirmation hearings for President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee — even promising to deny meeting privately with whomever the President picks.

The people already spoke when they elected President Obama and unlike Trump, Obama was elected by a majority of Americans.

Trump lost the popular vote by 2.9 million. The majority voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton and therefore the majority wants a liberal Supreme Court Justice and liberal policies, NOT conservative.

This is yet another example of how Republicans are corrupt, no good rotten bastards… how they always put getting what THEY want above doing whats right & serving the American people.

 

Merrick Garland Seat Stolen by Republicans

Judge Neil Gorsuch, another Horrible Pick of Trump for the Supreme Court, blocked a wrongful death lawsuit of a 22 year old who died after a Police officer used a Taser on him. According to the video, Judge Gorsuch stated the reason for throwing out the lawsuit is because the officer who shot the 22 year old man with the taser has “qualified immunity” which protects government officials from civil liabilities and damages while doing their jobs.

That type of Judicial reasoning would prevent a victim’s family from being able to sue a government official for damages regardless of how egregious the government official’s conduct may be.

This is what you get when you vote for Republicans… no Accountability and no Recourse when your rights are violated.

Claire McCaskill announces she will not support Gorsuch, citing his ‘stunning lack of humanity’

In a brutal post published Friday on Medium, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) announced she would not support President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. McCaskill’s announcement came a day after The Kansas City Star published leaked audio of McCaskill warning Democratic donors that blocking Gorsuch could be detrimental to Democrats’ chances in the 2018 midterm elections.

 

Claire McCaskill announces she will not support Gorsuch, citing his ‘stunning lack of humanity’

“I cannot support Judge Gorsuch because a study of his opinions reveal a rigid ideology that always puts the little guy under the boot of corporations. He is evasive, but his body of work isn’t. Whether it is a freezing truck driver or an autistic child, he has shown a stunning lack of humanity. And he has been an activist  —  for example, writing a dissent on a case that had been settled, in what appears to be an attempt to audition for his current nomination”. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.)
