I don’t know what they’ve put in the DC water supply – or maybe it’s the result of having a leader like President Trump who shrugs off the 24/7 media pummeling and punches back twice as hard (you know, like Obama suggested people do, but liberals hate it when it's done to them) – but Senate Republicans seem to have remembered that they are Republicans and that liberals are going to call them names no matter what they do, so they might as well do what their voters sent them there to do and to heck with the cable news nattering nabobs and Internet keyboard “warriors.”
Latest case in point: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has been surprising longtime critics on the right with his strong, unwavering leadership, just cut a deal to approve another 15 Trump judicial appointees to federal courts before the election. Knowing how desperate some Democrats are to get home and campaign (odd, I thought they were just going to surf to power on a “blue wave”?), he used that as a bargaining chip to stop their endless obstruction and stonewalling. McConnell used a similar tactic to get Trump judges approved in August. This brings the total of non-activist, Constitution-protecting Trump judicial appointees to 84 in two years, including two Supreme Court Justices, which will have a positive effect on America for many years to come.
If there were no other reason to crawl over broken glass to vote to keep the Senate in GOP hands (and there are many), this is it. As we saw with the all-out war on Brett Kavanaugh, the left has been unable to impose their unpopular, failed policies on the public by winning elections, so their last bastion of power is unelected activist judges misusing their gavels to dictate law from the bench (it’s amusing how they accuse Trump of being a wannabe dictator when their entire remaining power base rests on dictatorial judges.) The left’s current insane behavior might best be explained by the realization that they are seeing that last, illegitimate source of power slipping out of their clutches, and they will do anything to cling to it.
This deal also gives endangered Republicans a few more weeks to go home and campaign. And one more plus: it’s making the media talking heads and Internet social justice warriors wet themselves in "OUTRAGE." Which only goes to remind the public even more of why you do not want these people in any responsible position of power over you and your family, whether it’s in Congress, the White House or looking down on you from a judge’s perch.
Speaking of leftists who are incapacitated by anti-Trump “OUTRAGE,” here’s an article about that very thing from Politico. The slant of the story is annoying, since it treats all that Trump Derangement Syndrome nonsense as a real and justifiable psychological condition (what is it about low unemployment, high economic growth, secure borders, deporting violent criminals and crushing ISIS that upsets them so? Must be the tweets.)
But if you just read between the lines, you’ll either feel great sympathy or laugh yourself hoarse at the plight of these poor leftists who are so stricken with “Donald Trump Anxiety Disorder” that they can’t even make love to their spouses. So more good news: liberals have finally found a way to reduce their own population without resorting to abortion.
