No matter who Trump nominated the Democrats intended to make an issue of it. The noise you will hear about Neil Gorsuch is not about his nomination, but about the next one. The senate voted unanimously for Gorsuch to be a federal judge. If you saw him speak last night you had to be impressed. They know this one is getting through. They are starting work on stopping his next nomination. Plus if Trump says today is Wednesday, they say no it isn’t.
Interestingly the noise about the 90 day travel ban subsided on Tuesday as we predicted. Everyone is cleared, the policy is in place and everyone understands the rules. A little advance notice could have avoided a part of the mess. Also, it seems like the MSM finally understood it was not a Muslim or permanent ban. Maybe they saw the polls that the American people support the move.
Now take a step back. Trump got inaugurated on Friday. As he did there were violent demonstrations a few miles away. One third of the Democratic Congressional members did not show up. Web sites developed immediately like “Not My President”. The next day was the Women’s march. Cabinet nominees were held up for no real reason. His 90 day ban resulted in mass demonstrations. The former President spoke out against his policies. His supreme court nominee was attacked before being nominated. From all that you can see what the left has planned for the four years.
Only the fifth cabinet nominee was approved yesterday. (Obama had 12 already). It was, Elaine Chao who is the wife of senate leader McConnell and a former cabinet member.
Now, think how long it took and consider this, the vote was 93-6 in favor. In those numbers you can see the Democrats are just practicing obstructionist goals simply for political purposes.
In continuing the Senate delay, on Tuesday Democrats refused to attend a committee vote on two of President Trump’s nominees. Thus, no quorum, effectively delaying their consideration. Republicans expressed outrage at the move, while Democrats gathered outside the Senate Finance Committee hearing room to outline their gripes with the selections.
“I can’t understand why senators, who know we’re going to have these two people go through, can’t support the committee,” said Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). “I’m very disappointed in this kind of crap. … Some of this is because they just don’t like the president. This is the most pathetic thing I’ve seen in my whole time in the United States Senate”.
In addition they used procedural rules to push Jeff Sessions vote as Attorney General back another day. Why? Because they could.
The question is how will the American people react? If they decide the left is out of control the Democrats will be hurt. If they decide the MSM and protesters are right then in two years congress changes. How the economy does may make all the difference.
In the eleven days Trump has been President people have supported him, according to the polls, more than the media and leftists on the streets:
His daily approval ratings stand today at 51% positive.
Plus, 47% think the country is headed in the right direction. This is the highest per cent in 12 years.
You saw the support for the ban at 57%.
Here’s another survey on the media released yesterday:
A new Edelman study shows that Americans trust the media less than ever. Only 15 percent of Trump voters now trust the media, down six points since the presidential election.
Trust of the media among Clinton supporters is also down. Only 51 percent of Clinton supporters trust the media, down six points.
It couldn’t happen to a more biased group. Give the people credit.
We all saw the leader of the left, Chuck Schumer, cry over the 90 day ban. Did you know that in November 2015, Schumer considered a similar pause in the refugee program to allow for closer vetting?
“Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, on Tuesday said it may be necessary to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States”. Here’s the article:
On Sally Yates, she deserved to be fired. End. Her job was not to set policy but execute it. She did it for publicity and because of her leftist feelings. There is no argument on this.
