ACB Confirmed To Supreme Court, Many Democrats Are Not Taking It Well

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Of course, Democrats not taking it well is nothing that should surprise anyone, right?

Democrats warn GOP will regret Barrett confirmation

Democratic senators are warning that Republicans will regret confirming Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court as the Democrats face pressure from the left to nix the filibuster and expand the court if they win back the majority.

Democrats are facing calls from their base to enact rules changes and broad systemic reforms after President Trump, who lost the popular vote in 2016, was able to put three justices on the bench, in part because Republicans refused to give Merrick Garland, former President Obama’s final nominee, a hearing or a vote in 2016.

Several Democratic senators warned as part of the chamber’s debate over Barrett that Republicans have lost the right to kvetch if Democrats win back the majority and change the rules. Republicans nixed the filibuster in 2017 for Supreme Court nominees and reduced the debate time in 2019 for lower court and executive picks.

Perhaps the Dems should have thought of this before Harry Reid nuked the filibuster for judicial nominees. Hey, maybe it would have been better for Judge Garland to sit in a room for several days, being put on display, before the GOP voted against him.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), in a statement after Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night, warned that Republicans might “rue the day.”

“With this vote, my Republican colleagues forfeit their right to call procedural fouls,” Whitehouse said.

This vote? Well, Mitch McConnell has something to say

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on the Senate floor Monday night that America is a “constitutional republic,” and the government’s “legitimacy” does not arise from the left’s “feelings.”

McConnell said before the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, “Our Democratic colleagues keep repeating the word illegitimate as if repetition would make it true …We’re a constitutional republic. Legitimacy does not flow from their feelings.”

Of course, that doesn’t stop the caterwauling. Many of them are demanding that the court be packed, that lower courts be packed, all because they lost. But, perhaps the worst take?

Coons: ‘Hundreds’ of Trump’s Lower Court Judges Shouldn’t ‘Be Allowed to Sit Peaceably’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said that there should be a “wide-open conversation” on rebalancing the courts, including the circuit and district courts, where there are “hundreds” of judges who shouldn’t “be allowed to sit peaceably without our re-examining the process, the results, and the consequences.”

Coons said, “[W]e’ve got to have a wide-open conversation about how do we rebalance our courts. Yes, the two Supreme Court [seats] that have been stolen through these processes that are just wildly hypocritical have been used to jam through partisan nominees. But we’ve got to look at our federal courts as a whole, Rachel. Because we’ve seen hundreds of conservative judges put on circuit courts and district courts all over this country in the last four years, in many cases, too young, too unqualified, and too far right to be allowed to sit peaceably without our re-examining the process, the results, and the consequences.”

“Sit peaceably.” Does seem rather a threat, does it not? And, based on how unhinged and violent so many Democrats have become, they will hear this and become threatening and violent. Imagine a Republican said this……yup, you know how the Credentialed Media and Democrats would portray it.
