Like many progressives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in full-blown panic mode over the reality that President Trump is going to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
During an interview on MSNBC yesterday, Pelosi preemptively attacked the president's nominee, declaring what "horrible" things will happen with another conservative justice on the Supreme Court. She said:
"They are on a path to undo the Affordable Care Act. They're on a path to undo a woman's right to choose. And there are many more issues that relate to the LBGTQ community, clean air, clean water, pollution. They're coming after your children. Protect your children from what they are trying to do in this Court.
"They're coming after your children"?! That's rich coming from her, one of America's leading advocates of abortion.
The progressive left is sitting on the corpses of unborn children who have been sacrificed to the god of abortion on demand! Everyone knows abortion is THEissue driving the left. Yet Pelosi says conservatives are the ones coming for children!
But that's not all.
Pelosi is also raising the specter of impeachment yet again, telling a New York Times reporter yesterday, "Well, we can impeach [Trump] every day of the week for anything he does."
Not to be outdone, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to impeach Attorney General William Barr too!
Meanwhile, CNN's Don Lemon is calling on leftists to "blow up the entire system." He wants to "[pack] the Supreme Court" and "get rid of the Electoral College."
My friends, the left is serious about "fundamentally transforming" America. It's not just a talking point. It's not an empty threat. They mean it.
We will soon know who President Trump intends to nominate for the Supreme Court. The president tweeted this morning that he will announce his nominee on Saturday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been clear that the president's nominee will get a floor vote. Here's some additional history bolstering the case for why this president and this Senate should fill this vacancy:
- 15 times in U.S. history, a Supreme Court vacancy arose in a presidential election year and the president nominated someone that year.
- 7 of those 15 times, voters had put in place an opposite-party Senate. Only 2 of these 7 nominations were confirmed, the last in 1888.
- 8 of those 15 times, voters had chosen a Senate majority of the same party as the president. 7 of those 8 nominations were confirmed.
- Historical precedent supported the Senate majority's decision in 2016 and historical precedent supports the Senate majority's decision in 2020.
Meanwhile, Sen. McConnell has been working to ensure that his caucus is committed to getting this vacancy filled, and his efforts are paying off.
Senators Grassley and Ernst of Iowa support moving forward with the nomination process. Other senators in tough reelection battles, including Senators Gardner (CO), McSally (AZ) and Tillis (NC) are all on record in favor of President Trump and the Senate filling this appointment sooner rather than later. Even Senator Mitt Romney is on board to proceed.
And last night, Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Sean Hannity, "We've got the votes to confirm the justice on the floor of the Senate before the election. And that's what's coming."
While I appreciate Senator Graham's enthusiasm, we remember what happened with the Kavanaugh confirmation battle. We know the left will do anything it can to smear this nominee in order to drag out and delay the process.
We must be ready.
To Pack Or Not To Pack?
The Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wants to increase the size the Supreme Court by adding four or five more seats to the court and then filling every new position with far-left, pro-abortion, anti-religious liberty and anti-Second Amendment justices.
My friends, here's what you need to understand about the left's threats to pack the court. This has nothing to do with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death. Progressives were promising to pack the court before she died.
Last year, the Washington Post identified 11 liberal presidential candidates who favored packing the court with additional left-wing justices.
Remember the threats to impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh? Some radicals even want to impeach Justice Gorsuch because he's occupying a "stolen seat."

Washington Prayer March
As I just noted, everything is on the line in this election. While I believe it is critically important for every American to vote in this election, I also know it is critically important for every man and woman of faith to be in prayer for our nation as we battle the pandemic and strive to overcome racial and political divisions.
That's why I am honored to join Reverend Franklin Graham this weekend for his Washington Prayer March on the National Mall. The march will take place this Saturday at 12:00 PM and will begin at the Lincoln Memorial. If you are interested in attending the Prayer March, click here for additional information.
And if you cannot join us physically, I encourage you to make a special effort to join us in prayer this weekend.
