Nuclear Option Deployed – Now Democrats Have A Real Problem

The Senate has altered the longstanding practice for confirming Supreme Court justices after Democrats today blocked the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch.

As I see it – the country and in particular states have lost a tremendous amount today.  Not because the “nuclear option” as the last ditch effort was deployed but because the Senate has destroyed its official purpose to best represent the states and their interests. For years we have watched as members of the House of Representatives represented the winds of change and concerns of individuals; but always. we had hopes that the Senate which was to have been a more sedate, learned, non-partisan, and reasoned voice would help control and balance the verve of the House.

Since Harry Reid first introduced and pushed through the “Nuclear Option” and actually for several years before, we have witnessed the decline and politicization of the Senate. Now we are faced not only with a highly politicized House but also Senate.  The balance between both houses of Congress is now broken.

On a key Pro note, the Democrats and the liberalist view is now in serious jeopardy at the Supreme Court level. Through their own corrupt and infantile actions for the last few years, they have actually provided the best means possible to stop the corruption of the Supreme Court and those in lower appointed positions by the “living current trends” of governance and a more “constitutionally sound” interpretation at least for the next two and a half years. They have at least one, possibly two or three judges, that will in all likelihood not make it past the next year without retiring due to an infirmity or age.  Thus their antics in the determined effort of disavowing on grounds of political angst or personal dislike of the current president have rendered them hoisted on their own petards.

On a key Con note, in my admittedly unlearned view, this will be a serious problem for all future congresses to grapple with. It will open wide the doors to a foreign or ideological entity to more easily take over our country through legal means. The will of the country will now be in the hands of the will of the majority vote no matter its ideological or constitutional views.

Within the oath every congressman takes should be the sentence that upon accepting and providing their agreement to the oath, they are NO LONGER BOUND BY PARTY but must represent the citizens and the state that elected them to serve. Partisan, party lines, castigating party members, and a dozen other words should be specifically banned and those determined to push these points receive either stern warnings, State actions, or removal from position. In the Bible it specifically says one cannot serve two masters. In governing a country the same should apply.  You govern in the best interest of those who elected you from your district or state (not party or donor) or you don’t remain in office.

    Sucks to be them. They created this only because the assholes never thought they would lose. Eat shit and die.

  2. This should not be happening but I have no doubt that if the parties were reversed, the Democrats would have no compunction about making the same moves, but that gives me small comfort because it would still be wrong. I also know that at some point the parties will be reversed and then we may rue the day this change was made. I pray that this country can be pulled back from the brink it is teetering on, can we stop it from falling over the cliff into chaos? I hope someone can say yes we can stop this fall into chaos and ruin. I pray that is the case.

      Totally agree. I’m wondering if the States can force an amendment through negating all of this insanity under their States Rights Convention

        Mr. Whipple is rolling in his grave. Chucky’s new nickname is Mr. Whuppedazz. He has a B0 problem with his product. His female guinea pig was Hildebeest. She smelled of cabbage, urine and farts while using it on the campaign trail. His buttbuddy Harry tried to substitute a broken belt on a treadmill with it a few years ago. It snapped and threw some hardened poo into his face, giving him a black eye. Harry’s bookies got angry after smelling the putrid stench and beat him down to punish him.

    Chucky Schumer kept flinging poo at Mitch McConnell. As a result, McConnell nuked the Democrats to stop the monkey business. No one in the GOP wanted to take this route, but they all knew Schumer and his ape sock puppets were yanking dung out of their stinkholes. One or two of the Democrats saw the hand on the nuke button and escaped from the monkey cage to save themselves. Chucky needs to be reminded that his butt buddy Harry Reid sowed the nuclear option when their party monkeyed around with the Senate. Whatever a man sows, he shall also reap.

    Good analysis; thanks, Uriel!
