Good Wednesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president delivers remarks to the Economic Clubs of New York; Florida; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Pittsburgh; and Sheboygan
- President Trump delivers remarks at a Make America Great Again Rally in Des Moines, Iowa
Listen to me talk about the Senate Judiciary circus on Derek Hunter’s podcast.
Two minutes of hate:
Tuesday was the first day of questioning for ACB. It was as you would expect: a massive trolling operation. The purpose of the hearings is to determine whether the president’s nominee is qualified to be a justice on the Supreme Court. The purpose of the Democrats hearing is to terrify the voters that Trump’s nominee will declare Trump the winner of the election, will overturn Roe so their precious abortions will be illegal, will take away health care from sick people and will give guns to violent felons.
The Democrats know that ACB can’t disclose how she would would rule on cases that might come before the court because the parties in the cases would not get a fair hearing if the justices had already made up their mind. Also, the courts don’t rule on issues like “should people get subsidized health care” or “should votes be counted 3 months after election day” but rather they evaluate specific legal arguments involved in the cases. The SCOTUS doesn’t decide if government should or should not force insurance companies to cover pre-exisiting conditions, it decides if the government can forcibly confiscate money from citizens to pay for a health care program and call it a tax. As I’ve written before, if the left doesn’t want the court to overturn their crappy laws, stop making unconstitutional crappy laws.
ACB is very impressive. She’s quick, knowledgeable, sharp and very polite. Why would the Democrats hate an attractive, smart woman who manages a large family, a respectable job and does crossfit every morning at 5am? You tell me, we know the answer.
Wolf Blitzer who may have had some sort of mental break in order to do this, called Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her smack talk when he asked her why the House won’t accept the president’s $1.8T coronavirus aid package. Pelosi said Wolf was “always” an apologist for the GOP. LOL. Pelosi was losing her sh!t in the interview because Blitzer is holding her to account, probably for the first time in her life. Now Wolf wasn’t vicious as he should have been, he was trying so hard to be obsequious while forcing her to explain her position which is to ask why Americans hurt by the virus should suffer so that President Trump is not given a victory.
