LEADERSHIP?

I decided to search for quotes, statements, and positive positions of Senate leaders. I selected the significant news event of Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s retirement to illustrate the positions and concerns of the Senate leaders.   

 

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, with the suave of “Puff the Dragon” and demeanor of the Devil himself stated “the Senate should not vote on a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy this year, an election year”.

Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC’s “Hardball”, “threatened the Democratic leadership who will have hell to pay with voters if the party fails to block President Donald Trump’s pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy”.

Matthews, The self appointed brains of MSNBC,  “said that because Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, refused to even meet with former President Barack Obama’s pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, Democrats have to do everything in their power to stop Trump’s pick from being confirmed.

“I don’t think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur with Trump’s nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy,” Matthews said. “I think they have to fight eye for an eye for what happened in ‘16 where the Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, refused to even consider or even meet with Merrick Garland.” Folks, people like Mathews are the reason we have ZERO cooperation in our government today.
If case you forgot President Obama still had nearly a year remaining in his second term when Justice Scalia was eliminated. McConnell said that the vacancy should not be filled in an election year and that the nominee should be up to the next president. Mathews and Schumer failed to remember that Obama did not wait and nominated Merrick Garland to replace Scalia.

Despite screams and hate filled articles McConnell and Senate Republicans refused to consider Garland and he was not granted a hearing. Instead, the Supreme Court operated with eight justices until Trump took office and nominated Neil Gorsuch.

It appears that McConnell does not intend to follow the precedent set in 2016, saying that the Senate will vote on a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court this fall. That would ensure that Trump’s pick is confirmed by a Republican-controlled Senate, even if the Democrats managed to regain a majority in the election.

Matthews fanning the fires of hate stated that if Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., allows Trump’s nominee to go forward it would anger the party’s core voters.

 

It appears that much of the Democratic leadership agrees with Matthews. Schumer announced on the Senate floor yesterday that “Our Republican colleagues in the Senate should follow the rule they set in 2016 not to consider a Supreme Court justice in an election year.” “Millions of people are just months away from determining the senators who should vote to confirm or reject the president’s nominee and their voices deserve to be heard now, as Leader McConnell thought they deserved to be heard then.”
“Anything but that would be the absolute height of hypocrisy,” he added.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., cited the “McConnell Standard,” set with his opposition to Garland, as the reason not to consider any nominee until after the midterm election.

Let the cannons be loaded. Not surprisingly, President Trump said the process to replace Kennedy on Supreme Court will ‘begin immediately’

The opposing guns are loaded and the California forces of Senator Dianne Feinstein and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced that “the future of our democracy is at stake”. If the war reaches a pitch that the Senators can stir up it will be the best opening in my lifetime to insist that electing Congresspersons be with term limits. These people have elevated themselves to an elite status that must be destroyed.

I fully agree that the future of our democracy is at stake. The people deserve a voice in a decision that will radically alter the course of American justice for decades.What do you think?

AMERICA AT WAR WITH ITSELF!

I would like to suggest that Congress, President Trump and every American who cares to consider initiating action to require a new military draft.

Over the last several years our College and University professors have successfully and overtly created a new youth movement to challenge our Constitution. It is also apparent that parents in the last fifty years have decided to make our education systems responsible for teaching discipline to our youth. Folks this shift in who teaches our children how to take orders has failed and miserably.

I have never seen parents teach their children how to protest free speech, have you? I have never seen parents teach their kids how to burn the American flag, have you? I have never seen parents teach their children how to destroy property, have you? I have never seen parents teach their children how to protest and kill the police, have you?

What has happened to cause our young people to protest everything and who teaches them to use violence? Unless you are blind, deaf, afflicted, insane it is obvious our Colleges and Universities are the reasons. They do have help from some dissident members of Congress like Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Elijah Cummings, Bernie Sanders and other Socialists zealots. They have the main stream media morons like Juan Williams, Chris Matthews and the army of biased Progressive-Liberals who poison minds with biased and slanted commentary.

North Korea is rattling sabers and they are equipped with nuclear weapons. They have a leader who appears to need confinement in a “Laughing Academy” or as most call it an insane asylum on the brink of war. I served in the military in the first Korean war some 68 years ago and what a great time in our history to return to the draft.

Parents have failed, our Colleges and Universities have become more dangerous for America’s future than North Korea will ever be. Starting with sit-ins, silent protest and peaceful demonstrations we now have flag burning, property damage and killing a policeman common practices every day.

It is time for Congress establish six months of mandatory military service which can be optional when they graduate high school or when they earn a college degree in four years or less. Having served from 17 until 21 it would be fun to watch a flag burning happening on a military facility. Watching the consequence of destroying government property would be quite a surprise to one of these protesters on a military facility. Cleaning a restroom with a toothbrush 24 straight hours will make you wish you obeyed every command.

The real test of effectiveness would be watching one of these destined college professors have to attend boot camp in a Marine Corps facility when they did their six months.

This would include boys and girls who received no discipline from their parents. I dreaded taking home a “B” which would have grounded me by my mother until I joined the US Navy. Boot camp for me was a transition from boy to man and I will forever appreciate this preparation for me to seek success that followed.

Many people exceeded my financial success but few ever worked in 23 countries, visited in 9 more worked in 49 states and experienced so many different cultures in my lifetime. Now as I near my 87th year watching these spoiled, rotten, kids rebel at the urging of the “lazy ass” professors who hide behind tenure rather than results makes me sick.

The real shame is the parents who fail to teach honesty, obedience and manners to their spoiled brats. Pity the poor teachers who have to deal with these snot nosed misfits nine months a year. Call me old fashioned, call me a Grinch but don’t call me a failure for a large extended family. Ninety percent of my family are well prepared for life, Ten percent will never enjoy life like I have and I doubt that they will ever live to be 87 years old. Time will tell.  C Brewer
