He's just not worth it, you see. Plus he's been in federal politics for decades, he's got tenure so Pelosi can't take any action against him at all.

There's no way McConnell's going to take his beady little eyes off the ball now.  Approving Supreme Court justices for the "right" President is all he wants.

Stonewalling every possible Democratic advance and acting as a living roadblock for legislation he doesn't like is just a bonus.

impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr - which would delay the confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Yeah I'm sure Moscow Mitch will give Treason Toad's acquittal top billing.

Yeah. I'm sure the Democrats who have let the concentration camps stay open this whole time and let their most senior members continue to hug fascists and hand them victories are definitely the same people who will jump right on impeaching the man who once taunted them to bring their handcuffs. /s

Did everyone forget about the concentration camps that are still open?

Hell, we found out about forced hysterectomies and even the most ardent "Still with her!" accounts and politicians haven't said peep about it, much less taken any action.

It better be!

Bill Barr was very mean to Trump by not arresting all of Fark and declaring it Obamagate, Trump is angry at Barr and wants him gone. Other people are angry at Bill Barr for subverting the rule of law and being a gangster anarchist instead of an Attorney General.

Bill Barr and Amy Barrett are both delightful to the Kremlin, they gotta go.

Moscow Mitch isn't helping Trump's reelection by being a hypocrite and throttling stimulus.
 
2020-10-21 10:06:53 AM  
Pelosi and the Democrats might as well do that and then pull out more impeachment charges for Trump and maybe even beer bro. What downside is there? Just keep pushing impeachments out till Dec. McConnell has manipulated his power for over a decade now to pack the courts. Fark him and all the GOP. Use every possible power you have to block his corruption.

People should be celebrated for letting go of old ideas and being willing to change.  Humans tend to reject ideas that challenge their world view.  Over coming that is not easy.

Dude, if a pandemic that killed nearly 1/4 million people, infected 8 million plus, and tanked the economy couldn't shave a microsecond off of the GOP senators' push to confirm this individual whose legal opinions are a radical departure from most Americans, do you honestly think that impeaching Barr during the week of her confirmation will make the slightest bit of difference?

Thread over. The Treason Turtle is going to fill RGB's seat. Book it. Done.

He will fill that seat even though it will likely cost him control of the Senate.

He will fill that seat even though there is a very small chance it will cost him the election.

The real question is: What is President Biden going to do about it?

Why won't those lousy democrats stop the republicans!  Oh wait, they can't.  The GOP controls the judiciary, the senate and the White House.  They can hold hearings after hearings.  But it won't get anything done.  The public at large doesn't care.  So shame on us as a country.  But showing everyone how weakness of the democrats' position won't help anything.

But keep trying to fracture the democrats, I'm sure Trump, McConnell  and Putin would thank you.

Ask co-president McConnell (or whoever the most powerful Senate Republican is by then)  to pretty, pretty, pretty please consider a few suggestions their donors have.
 
2020-10-21 10:11:31 AM  
I mean he should for acting like the personal attorney for the President.

I will say I hope it he wakes up every morning knowing he's bent all norms of his position and torpedoed pretty much any chance of whatever higher political aspirations he has in order to be a sycophant to a guy who derides him publicly for not fully being a lap dog and locking up his political enemies for whatever crimes he thinks they did.

I hope Barr will name each one of his ulcers and failed dreams after a member of the Trump family.
 
2020-10-21 10:12:14 AM  
Barrett's confirmation is a foregone conclusion.
Impeaching Barr
1) would  be a waste of time.  The Senate doesn't have the votes.
2) would be seen as politically motivated at this point in the election
3) might unify Republican voters at the polls
4) would only delay confirmation by a week. Maybe.

ACB is going to be confirmed. The Supreme Court is lost for now.  Get through the election, and hopefully the Democrats will control the White House and Congress. Then we'll see what they have in store for the Judicial Branch.

Before - DiFI hugged him after the vote to pass her nomination out of Committee.

// President Biden wouldn't need to impeach Barrett - just point out that her nomination was not in order per the Senate's own rules
// although the fact that 51 Senators voted to confirm after the committee hearing (which isn't Constitutionally mandated) would probably prevent any such challenge

You don't get to tell me I'm trying to fracture the Democrats while also telling me the Democrats were right to vote to fund concentration camps and are right to have done nothing about any of it for the last year. The Democrats are obviously united in their support for the camps and the human rights violations occurring in them, and they have your full support, too.

And since I'm not on board with those things, I'm not a Democrat.
