Democrats just leaked their plan to destroy Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Since Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, liberals have lost their minds.

They are on the verge of losing the Supreme Court to Constitutionalists for potentially decades.

But they have a plan that could make President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee meaningless.

The Huffington Post published an article suggesting that if they win the White House in 2020, Democrats should pack the court with two new judges to outvote the conservatives on the bench.

Here is an excerpt from the Huffington Post:

There is nothing magical about the number nine. It carries no great aesthetic appeal. Its crooked curl is stolen from the number six. It is audibly indistinguishable from the German word for “no” ― an unfortunate coincidence in an era of vitriolic far-right ultranationalism. Eleven, by contrast, is beautiful and symmetrical, a number so good it tells us twice. Ambitious reformers may even find reasons to love 13, 15 or 21…

In 1937, with the Supreme Court habitually striking down President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s efforts to save the country from the Great Depression, FDR floated the idea of expanding the court to as many as 15 justices. The history of “court-packing,” as it became known, is unbecoming. But lawmakers keep coming back to variants of the idea because it works. Even after FDR retreated from his proposal amid a profound outcry from Southern Democrats, the justices sitting on the court got his message and began issuing more sympathetic rulings on the New Deal.

But it’s not just the loony Huffington Post calling for this court-packing scheme.

Fordham Law professor Jed Shugerman said Democrats should expand the Court to 15 justices if they defeat Trump in 2020. Ian Samuel, faculty at Harvard Law, also called for packing the Court.

The last attempt to pack the Supreme Court with liberal activist judges under President Franklin D. Roosevelt went down in flames.

The Court helped stem many of the worst parts of FDR’s New Deal.

Today’s Democratic Party is suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome and they could bring this scheme back to life.

    Suggesting that the “nine” be increased to 15 or so is only an increase in number of Judges. It won’t assure that Conservatives and Leftists will either cancel each other out, or one agenda will overrule the other agenda. How ridiculous is this number suggestion? Well, why not 100 Judges armed with paint-ball guns, for good measure? One side with Red, the other side with Blue…. Will any abstain? Oh my, then what?
    The present number exists because it is handy enough. Even if a Judge is known for his/her record of Leftism or Conservatism, a vote result still cannot be guaranteed, unless Judges with acceptable backgrounds and court-room opinions are not chosen in lieu of Ivy League law professors who seem to have all of the answers . (Operative word-“seem”)

    Sorry to say, but even Patriot Pulse is censoring some ideas. Like my, about the fascist group which calls themselves Antifa. I assure you there was no profane or hate language involved.

  3. Ric says:

    This wasn’t anything that was leaked unless the Dems are dumber than “a sack o’ hammer!” Wel…. I won’t go there! Say this WAS leaked, what would stop Trump from doing the same thing now? lol

  4. April says:

    The only chance the party of hate and violance would win in November is if
    the illegal votes aren’t plucked out of their totals. These idiots have failed at every turn using their trashy attempts to take Trump out, when will you learn
    Your ghetto criminality is not going to save this barbaric party!

    • Jerry says:

      Is it so complicated? I just witness election in a small village in the post communist country. In spite that everybody knows everybody, people had to show state issued ID with picture. What is difficult on that? Of course those ID have address as well. Like driver licence. It is impossible to obtain full ID without being citizen or not having permanent address. ID for non citizen could be passport from issuing country or any similar ID. Maybe US should learn about elections from post communist countries.

      • Cliff says:

        Jerry,
        You know as well as I that the DEMOCOMMUNISTS have fought every time “voter ID” is brought up as a reason to disenfranchise the “minority” voters. BUT when it comes to their WELFARE ID’S they seem to know how to get THAT. Besides, MEXIFORNIA hands out driver’s licensees to ILLEGALS (as their form of ID) and signs them up to vote right then and there. I would think it was a safe bet that other democommunist-controlled states do the same thing.

    • Bil says:

      The democrap problem is getting enough votes in Congress. As I see it, they cannot do that without a major gaffe on Trump’s part – which he’s not providing.

    • Eric says:

      Oh, but they will not be plucked out. The dems are gonna pack those illegal aliens and dead voters to the maximum. They are going to cheat like the world’s coming to an end, cuz for them, if they lose, it is the end. If they win, the USA will bee just a big Cuba or Valenzuela. We’ll be toast.

      • Stephen Potts says:

        No, America won’t be toast, but there will be a lot of bodies piled up in the streets. America WILL sort this out and no country ever became communist until they took away the citizens guns, which will NOT happen here!

  5. Vasu Murti says:

    “Make America Great Again” ?

    I didn’t vote for Donald Trump. I find Donald Trump himself, his demeanor, his positions on the issues, indeed, his entire campaign and his administration, offensive.

    Donald Trump called undocumented immigrants from Mexico criminals and rapists in June 2015. Trump insulted former POW senator John McCain for being captured in July 2015. Trump mocked a disabled New York Times journalist in November 2015. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies in February 2016. Trump promoted waterboarding and “hell of a lot worse” forms of torture in February 2016. Trump refused to disavow support from white supremacist leader David Duke in February 2016. Trump accused a Latino federal judge of bias due to his race in June 2016. Trump insulted the Gold Star Khan family in June 2016. Trump implied Second Amendment supporters could shoot his opponent in August 2016.

    For the past forty years, it’s tradition that presidential nominees of both major parties release multiple years of their tax returns. They do this in part to guarantee to the public that there are no conflicts of interest.

    Donald Trump is refusing to, hiding behind a phony excuse that he can’t until the IRS finishes auditing him, a claim directly refuted by the IRS. What’s worse, in 2012, Trump was leading a call for the Republican presidential candidate that year, Mitt Romney, to release his own tax returns. As usual, Trump doesn’t want to be held to the unforgiving standards by which he judges other people.

    Five Famous Republicans Who Didn’t Want to Vote for Trump

    Mitt Romney

    Mitt Romney gave a whole speech on why Trump is basically the worst. (Damn Trump for making me agree with Mitt Romney.) The former Massachusetts governor went after Trump for his economic plans, ludicrous statements on foreign policy matters, his supposed business prowess, and his use of scapegoats as punching bags. Even when Romney and Trump agree, they disagree. Romney stated:

    “Now not every policy Donald Trump has floated is bad. He wants to repeal and replace Obamacare. He wants to bring jobs home from China and Japan. But his prescriptions to do these things are flimsy at best. At the last debate, all he could remember about his healthcare plan was to remove insurance boundaries between states. Successfully bringing jobs home requires serious policy and reforms that make America the place businesses want to plant and grow. You can’t punish business into doing the things you want. Frankly, the only serious policy proposals that deal with the broad range of national challenges we confront, come today from Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich.”

    Jeb Bush

    He indicated during his campaign that he would support the eventual Republican nominee, but Jeb! Bush has not followed through. (And who can blame him?) In a Facebook post congratulating The Donald on his successful primary campaign, Jeb! added that, oh yeah, Trump is also the literal worst person the party could have nominated.

    “The American Presidency is an office that goes beyond just politics. It requires of its occupant great fortitude and humility and the temperament and strong character to deal with the unexpected challenges that will inevitably impact our nation in the next four years.

    “Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character. He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.”

    I fear that it is precisely these qualities — the shooting from the hip and replacing reason with purely emotional appeals — is what’s driving the Trump Republicans in the first place.”

    George Will

    Conservative columnist George Will worried about what Trump would do to the Republican brand; in particular, the effect he’d have down ballot. Will predicted a cascade of losses that will not only give the House to the Democrats, but ultimately give the Supreme Court a liberal majority for a generation.

    “Trump would be the most unpopular nominee ever, unable to even come close to Mitt Romney’s insufficient support among women, minorities and young people. In losing disastrously, Trump probably would create down-ballot carnage sufficient to end even Republican control of the House. Ticket splitting is becoming rare in polarized America: In 2012, only 5.7 percent of voters supported a presidential candidate and a congressional candidate of opposite parties.”

    The fallout from a Trump presidency, as Will saw it, required that conservatives band together to blow this election.

    “Were he to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose fifty states — condign punishment for his comprehensive disdain for conservative essentials, including the manners and grace that should lubricate the nation’s civic life. Second, conservatives can try to save from the anti-Trump undertow as many senators, representatives, governors and state legislators as possible.”

    Ben Sasse

    Sasse, the junior senator from Nebraska, was in the front lines of the anti-Trump wing of the Republican party from the beginning. Sasse called Trump “a megalomaniac strongman” on the floor of the Senate and traveled to Iowa before that state’s caucus in an attempt to stop the Trump Train before it left the station. In a Facebook post on the subject in February, 2016, Sasse explains his opposition to a Trump presidency:

    “Mr. Trump’s relentless focus is on dividing Americans, and on tearing down rather than building back up this glorious nation. Much like President Obama, he displays essentially no understanding of the fact that, in the American system, we have a constitutional system of checks and balances, with three separate but co-equal branches of government. And the task of public officials is to be public ‘servants.’ The law is king, and the people are boss. But have you noticed how Mr. Trump uses the word “Reign” – like he thinks he’s running for King? It’s creepy, actually. Nebraskans are not looking for a king. We yearn instead for the recovery of a Constitutional Republic.”

    He invoked President Obama’s name when discussing Trump? That’s the conservative equivalent of dropping an f-bomb in front of your grandparents. This guy must be serious. He hasn’t backed down, either. Sasse has reinforced his disdain for both Trump and Hillary Clinton and his desire for another option.

    Christine Todd Whitman

    Chris Christie may be the New Jersey governor getting all the attention for his support of Trump, but that support is much to the chagrin of former New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whitman. Whitman, who had endorsed Gov. John Kasich, said that she dislikes Trump so much that she’d probably vote for Clinton in the general election. Of Christie’s support, she said

    “I am ashamed that Christie would endorse anyone who has employed the kind of hate mongering and racism that Trump has. I would have thought being from a diverse state would have given him more awareness and compassion.”

    Whitman also penned an essay for Politico that compared Trump to bullies and dictators. She recognizes that language has power and that giving anyone the kind of platform to spout hate that Donald Trump has is dangerous.

    “Language shapes behavior. Hateful language gives susceptible people permission to act on their fears. Preying on the marginalized who are scared of the future is the time-honored tactic of bullies and dictators. When times are difficult, people always look for someone to blame: It is easy to pick out a target. Today it is Muslims, but tomorrow it could be anyone. Hatred knows no bounds. As a Republican, I am particularly concerned by the rise of hate rhetoric within our party. We cannot ignore it, and we can no longer dismiss it as a passing fluke. The damage it is inflicting and the behavior it is inciting can last for years to come.”

    Points against Trump

    1. Donald Trump:

    wants to ban all Muslims from entering the United States

    wants to build a wall along the U.S. – Mexican border

    uses misogynistic language and personal insults

    believes global warming is a hoax

    calls for waterboarding and other forms of torture

    First there was the time he outraged prisoners of war by doubting the heroism of Vietnam veteran John McCain, because he allowed himself to be captured. Then there was the first television debate, where he appeared to accuse Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly of asking him tough questions because she was menstruating.

    If POWs, Fox News and women were not enemies enough, Trump has also accused Mexican immigrants to the U.S. of being rapists; claimed that a Black Lives Matter protester who was violently ejected from a rally deserved to be “roughed up”; appeared to mock aNew York Times journalist for his disability and then accused the journalist of “grandstanding ” on that disability in his response; falsely accused Muslim Americans of cheering on the 9/11 attackers; and agreed with suggestions that Muslims should have their names tracked on a database.

    And just as critics began to argue that such comments about Muslims were brutal, racist demagoguery verging on fascism , Trump’s Twitter account recirculated racially charged but falsified crime statistics from an actual Nazi sympathizer.

    2. Fox News host Bill O’Reilly joined the chorus of individuals criticizing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposed ban on all Muslims coming into the U.S., telling Trump that he finds his plan counterproductive.

    “If you say no Muslims can travel here from overseas, you’re hurting the United States’ position against ISIS,” O’Reilly told Trump in a wide-ranging interview. “We need the friendly Muslim nations.”

    But the Republican contender wasn’t willing to back down, saying that he disagreed — and that he knows that his proposal is “not politically correct,” but that “somebody had to bring it up.”

    “You can vet them, but you can’t insult the whole religion,” O’Reilly said.

    3. Military veteran Sean Sorbie said:

    “The man who criticized John McCain’s war record and tried to have veterans removed from outside his Fifth Avenue Trump Tower put on a media event that was pure exploitation of veterans for his own political interests, all because he didn’t want to debate his Republican rivals on Fox News.

    “Trump boasted about the almost $6 million his event raised for veterans — but the organization, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, has an abysmal record of supporting veterans’ causes. Over the most recently disclosed six-year period, less than one-sixtieth of the money the Donald J. Trump Foundation contributed to charitable causes was allocated to veterans’ groups.

    “Instead of being distracted by political games, our country should look at the harmful policies Republicans have proposed that would hurt vets.

    “To his cheering crowd, Trump vowed to get rid of Obamacare — which would lead to reduced mental health services for veterans. He claimed we’re ‘a country that doesn’t win anymore’ and that the rest of the world ‘laughs at our stupidity’ — while touting a reckless foreign policy agenda that would send our soldiers right back into harm’s way.”

    4. VoteVets.org similarly said:

    * Donald Trump is an unabashed torture apologist. In fact, he called Ted Cruz a coward for taking a stand against waterboarding.

    * He shares discredited stories — favorably — about an American General dipping ammunition in pig’s blood before executing Muslim prisoners in the Philippines.

    * He has been the most vocal candidate in either primary about escalating our war in the Middle East.

    …on military and veterans issues, he is super vulnerable. And there is no organization better positioned to take him to task than VoteVets.

    5. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s office said:

    “Donald Trump doesn’t think he’s the problem. He shrugs off his offensive statements and blames his critics for being too “politically correct.”

    Trump couldn’t be more wrong. America was built on tolerance. Even when we disagree, we don’t resort to crude insults or fear-mongering tactics aimed at alienating women and minorities. Not ever.”

    6. Polls in early 2016

    Clinton: 48% to Trump: 44%

    7. Bernie Sanders himself said in early 2016:

    “The American people will not support a candidate trying to divide us up by where we came from. They will not support a candidate who does not favor raising the minimum wage and who thinks wages in this country are too high. They will not support a candidate who thinks climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese. And they will not support a candidate who wants to give huge tax breaks to billionaires like himself. It would be an extraordinary campaign, and one I am confident that we will win.”

    8. The Huffington Post routinely ended articles on Trump in 2016 with the following message:

    “Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.”

    9. Among the Trump voters polled in South Carolina in 2016:

    Nearly 75 percent think the Confederate flag should be flying over the State Capitol.

    38 percent wish the South had won the Civil War.

    80 percent support banning Muslims from entering the United States.

    62 percent support a national database of Muslim in the United States.

    33 percent believe Islam should be illegal in the United States.

    31 percent support banning LGBT people from entering the United States.

    Donald Trump was given four opportunities to disavow David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan, but was reluctant to do so. At one point he claimed he didn’t know who David Duke was, even though years earlier he said in a video he left the Reform Party since it was being taken over by David Duke and others.

    10. Faithful America, a Christian organization, says:

    “Donald Trump is holding himself out as a strongman whose toxic stew of racism and fear-mongering will ‘make America great again.’

    “This is idolatry, plain and simple. Christians follow a savior who suffered death on a cross, not a ‘winner’ who espouses violence and domination as the path to national salvation.

    “Jesus told us to welcome the stranger and the refugee. Trump wants to build a giant wall and ban all Muslims from America. Jesus fed the poor and hungry. Today, politicians run for office with the Bible in hand while trying to take away food stamps. Jesus was a great healer – and yet today, every single ‘Christian’ candidate for the Republican nomination wants to strip Americans of their healthcare. Our Lord and Savior welcomed all to his table, stood up to corrupt authorities, brought good news to the poor and dire warnings to the rich. But in America, Christianity has become synonymous with vandalizing mosques, shooting up Planned Parenthood clinics, and gay-bashing.”

    11. Conservative Christian pastor Max Lucado commented on Trump:

    “He ridiculed a war hero. He made mockery of a reporter’s menstrual cycle. He made fun of a disabled reporter. He referred to the former first lady, Barbara Bush as ‘mommy,’ and belittled Jeb Bush for bringing her on the campaign trail. He routinely calls people ‘stupid,’ ‘loser,’ and ‘dummy.’”

    And the pastor wasn’t done there. He continued, “Such insensitivities wouldn’t even be acceptable even for a middle school student body election. But for the Oval Office? And to do so while brandishing a Bible and boasting of his Christian faith? I’m bewildered, both by his behavior and the public’s support of it.”

    12. Conservative Christian Matt Walsh similarly blogged:

    “He’s a serial adulterer who abandoned his family (twice) to shack up with younger women. His ex-wife once alleged that he ripped out chunks of her hair and violated her. We don’t even need to get into alleged ties to the mob or financial scams or his confession that he bribes politicians. He can’t speak semi-coherently about the Bible, he has no understanding of basic Christian teaching, he thinks Christianity does not require us to ask for forgiveness, and our relationship with Christ can be measured using polling data, but does he otherwise carry himself as anything resembling a Christian?

    “I see a guy who lies constantly and blatantly. I see a man who changes his positions and his principles at the drop of a hat. I see a deeply immature man who insults people on Twitter but lacks the courage to face them in person. I see someone who fashions himself ‘politically incorrect’ but is really just a cruel and bitter old man who thinks it’s funny to mock the disabled. I see a man with no honor who launches vulgar attacks on women and then lies about what he said. I see a phony who brazenly exploits the fears of the American public. I see a guy whose recklessness and greed drives his businesses into bankruptcy, and I see a guy who tries to silence journalists when they report on it. I see a guy who jazzes up the crowd at campaign rallies by bragging about his money and threatening to throw protesters out into the cold without their coats. And so on.”

    Democrats don’t deny we’re at war, they just hesitate to call it “radical Islam” because the term indirectly demonizes all Muslims. It’s like referring to the Ku Klux Klan as “Christians” when they clearly do not speak for all of Christianity. Democrats take their cue from *Republican* George W. Bush who never used the term “radical Islam.” After 9-11, George W. Bush told the American people our quarrel is not with Islam but with a radical faction within Islam known as Al-Quaeda. Shortly after 9-11, George W. Bush visited a mosque: something Barack Obama was unable to do until late in his presidency, as Islamaphobic “birthers” were labeling him a “Muslim” even though Article VI, Section 3 of the Constitution clearly states: “No religious test shall be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Taunted by Republicans to declare war on “radical Islamic terrorism,” Democrats are turning to an unlikely ally: George W. Bush.

    President Barack Obama, under pressure to be more aggressive on terrorism, regularly cites his predecessor’s refusal to demonize Muslims or play into the notion of a clash between Islam and the West. It’s a striking endorsement from a president whose political rise was predicated on opposition to the Iraq war and Bush’s hawkish approach in the Middle East.

    As Hillary Clinton put it, “George W. Bush was right.”

    Laying out her plan to fight domestic terrorism, Clinton reminded voters in Minneapolis of Bush’s visit to a Muslim center six days after the Sept. 11 attacks. She even quoted his words from that day about those who intimidate Muslim-Americans: “They represent the worst of humankind, and they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior.”

    Bush, of course, was not referring to the 2016 Republican presidential field. Clinton certainly was.

    Jeb Bush has also said the U.S. should follow his brother’s lead, arguing that “we can’t dissociate ourselves from peace-loving Muslims.”

    During the 2001 mosque visit, one of several occasions Bush denounced anti-Muslim bias, he stood alongside Muslim leaders and quoted the Quran about evil-doers being ultimately defeated. He insisted that intimidation against Muslims in America would not stand.

    “The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,” Bush said.

    Donald Trump wants to ban ALL Muslims from coming to the United States. He’s not singling out the extremists, rather he’s castigating all Muslims. Even Bill O’Reilly was critical of Donald Trump in this regard, telling him, “If you say no Muslims can travel here from overseas, you’re hurting the United States’ position against ISIS,” O’Reilly told Trump in a wide-ranging interview. “We need the friendly Muslim nations. You can vet them, but you can’t insult the whole religion,” O’Reilly said.

    Even Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front who once compared Muslims praying in the streets to the Nazi occupation, thinks Donald Trump has gone too far. Asked in a television interview about Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, Le Pen said the idea was too much. “Seriously, have you ever heard me say something like that?” asked Le Pen, who has been accused of encouraging Islamophobia in France. “I defend all the French people in France, regardless of their origin, regardless of their religion.”

    I’ll vote for the candidate with the best record on animal issues. Bernie Sanders has a 100 percent voting record from the Humane Society Legislative Fund, whereas Hillary Clinton’s record is 83 percent. But Chelsea Clinton and Bill Clinton were vegan for years, whereas animal activist Belle Stafford lamented in 2016 that Bernie Sanders, a revolutionary, doesn’t take on the livestock industry, like taking on the fossil fuel industry, saying instead that Americans like their bacon.

    But Bernie Sanders is calling for increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, whereas Hillary Clinton initially only wanted to raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour. In one of the Democratic presidential debates, Bernie Sanders said he would have voted for an initiative on the ballot in Nevada to legalize marijuana. Bernie Sanders endorsed the California marijuana initiative, saying, “I believe that we have to end prohibition regarding marijuana.” It isn’t a radical statement to admit that the Prohibition of alcohol in the United States failed and that we really ought to end marijuana prohibition as well. Nearly 75 percent of the drug war is directed solely at marijuana which is safer than alcohol and/or tobacco. Barack Obama himself has admitted marijuana is not more harmful than alcohol, but Hillary Clinton is too cautious, saying more research is needed.

    Hillary Clinton was qualified in terms of experience. I’m reminded of 1988, when Bush Sr. ran as Reagan’s heir apparent, saying he was the man most qualified for the presidency based on his own record of experience. And his single term in office was effectively Reagan’s third term. Hillary Clinton was more knowledgeable on foreign policy than Bernie Sanders. Hillary Clinton had a better record on gun control than Bernie Sanders, although Bernie Sanders quickly pointed out he represents Vermont, a rural state, with a tradition of firearms, and quickly points out that he’s gotten a negative rating from the NRA. But many on the left saw Hillary Clinton as too hawkish and too corporate.

    In their first joint campaign appearance in the summer of 2016, President Obama said that he was “ready to pass the baton” — and the White House — to his former rival, Hillary Clinton. Obama made the case for Clinton as a brilliant, “level-headed” stateswoman who could lead the country in tumultuous times. “I’m ready to pass the baton,” he said at the end of his remarks.

    Although some on the political left viewed her as too corporate or too hawkish, Hillary Clinton was definitely qualified in terms of experience. I’m reminded of 1988, when Bush Sr. ran as Reagan’s heir apparent, saying he was the man most qualified for the presidency based on his own record of experience. Accepting the Republican nomination in 1988, Bush Sr. said:

    “A President must be many things. He must be a shrewd protector of America’s interests; And he must be an idealist who leads those who move for a freer and more democratic planet. He must see to it that government intrudes as little as possible in the lives of the people; and yet remember that it is the nation’s character. And he must be able to define – and lead – a mission.

    “For seven and a half years I have worked with a President – and I have seen what crosses that big desk. I have seen the unexpected crisis that arrive in a cable in a young aide’s hand. And I have seen problems that simmer on for decades and suddenly demand resolution. I have seen modest decisions made with anguish, and crucial decisions made with dispatch. And so I know that what it all comes down to, this election – what it all comes down to, after all the shouting and the cheers – is the man at the desk. My friends, I am that man.”

    And Bush Sr.’s single term in office was effectively Reagan’s third term.

    I saw Hillary Clinton’s qualifications along these lines. I’m a liberal Democrat, but Republican women I’ve spoken to agreed that Hillary Clinton was definitely qualified in terms of experience.

    In 2008, the Democratic Party hungered for change. Barack Obama represented change, whereas Hillary Clinton represented the Democratic Party establishment. Hillary Clinton lost to Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primaries. In 2016, Bernie Sanders won 22 states and around 40 percent of the votes in the Democratic primaries. Neither would have happened if the system were “rigged” in favor of the Democratic Party Establishment candidate Hillary Clinton.

    And Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the popular vote with over three million votes: initial counts showing her winning 47.7 percent of the vote to Trump’s 47.5 percent. A razor-thin margin, to be sure, but it indicates Trump does NOT have a mandate from the American people to push a conservative agenda.

    Hitler blamed Germany’s economic woes on the Jews, and Trump blamed Mexicans and Muslims, but a more accurate comparison is not Hitler, but Ronald Reagan. The 2016 election reminds me of 1980. The Democrats underestimated Reagan, dismissing him as a B-movie actor, a hack, with no real political knowledge, like dismissing Trump in 2016 as a reality TV star. Reagan was making gaffes, saying it takes three dollars to deliver one dollar of welfare (actual figure, 12 cents!), saying trees cause more pollution than industry, not knowing the meaning of the word “parity,” and saying we were in a “depression” when it was actually a recession. Like Trump in 2016, Reagan in 1980 talked about abolishing the Department of Education. I was a senior in high school, and my friends and I talked about moving to Canada if Reagan were elected.

    Reagan won a landslide only in the Electoral College; not in the popular vote against Jimmy Carter. Republicans ran on Reagan’s coattails, and the country appeared to be shifting rightward. The Reagan administration represented corporate interests over the environment, labor unions, and the working class, and Trump has similarly packed his cabinet with billionaires representing corporate interests. Reagan went on to select persons like anti-environmentalist James Watt for Secretary of the Interior, and Trump considered anti-environmentalist Forrest Lucas for the position. In 1980, Reagan was the oldest person ever elected president. In 2016, that distinction went to Donald Trump. Reagan, like Trump, was once a liberal Democrat. The parallelism between Reagan and Trump is uncanny.

    The comment that “Michelle Obama only cared about taking vacations at our expense…” is untrue. As of October 6, 2017, Trump spent 85 days of his 258 days in office on vacation. That’s a third of his presidency he’s wasted. And remember, during the 2016 campaign, Trump pledged not to take vacations, saying, “I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president who took time off.” Since taking office, Donald Trump has taken nonstop, luxury vacations — and we the people are paying for it! His trips are so expensive that they have bankrupted the Secret Service! He’s urged Republicans to cut Medicare and Social Security in the name of “balancing the budget.” But meanwhile, he’s perfectly happy to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on luxurious golf outings at Mar-a-Lago. It’s time for this corruption to stop. Since taking office, Donald Trump has visited his own golf courses over 67 times. If Trump is really as wealthy as he makes himself out to be, he should pay the government back immediately. Hardworking Americans should not empty their pockets for the Trump family’s pleasure.

    The Ted Cruz campaign put out a nude photo of Melania in 2016 and warned conservative Republicans: “Your next First Lady.” Dr. Jordan similarly comments online: “How can you compare a nude uneducated model to a Ivy League graduate who has a law degree? It is sad to see how prejudice and ignorant you people can be.” While the media was taking note of what Trump later dismissed as “locker room talk,” at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama was practically in tears, warning her fellow Democrats and the American people in general, “We need an adult in the White House.”

    The mainstream media and all politicians should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      Vasu Murti, DT has his faults. ALL CHRISTians are sinners and those that say they are not are making GOD out as a liar and the TRUTH would not be within us ( I John 1:10 ) .

      There were only TWO candidates to vote for. I looked at HC’s platform in her own words before I went to the polls. It said that she was willing to murder babies 1 week before birth !!! The travel ban did NOT include MANY Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia that kills CHRISTians and Indonesia. I have more to say about HC, but I don’t want to see a knock on my door. Surely you wouldn’t prefer her over DT in the WH, would you?

      • Robin Lee says:

        More : Not only that, if she won, we might all be destroyed by North Korea. Or she might continue the destruction caused by B.O. and we might be helping Iran and Russia to annihilate us.
        We would have Common Core ruin the education of the children as was planned in the 1960s anyway. ( issuesineducation.org ) . We would have transgendered bathrooms in which case a person could go to either bathroom just because I FELT they were a different gender than they sexual organs portrayed. In fact, California now has a THIRD gender on application forms called “Non-binary” in which a person IS whatever gender they feel like at the time !!! There’s more, but I’ll wait for the comments to my comments first. You, Vasu Murti, had, by far, the longest comment I have ever seen in my life !!!

          Mr. Vasu Murty is writing a book didn’t you know that?
          He’s practicing writing here. He wants to know what he can get away with before they call his work, fiction.

    • Joe Inzerillo says:

      If you had any cogent or original thoughts and expressed them, maybe you could be taken seriously. If you are in favor of your leftist brethren stacking the court then you as in American as they are. This is not just as difference of opinion . . . This is treasonous action. FDR had a those opposing his New Deal preparing to investigate wrongdoings in his administration . . . but he died before it could take hold. Your leftist brethren are without morals or scruples. Apparently, you are, as well !

      Bla,bla,bla….. Democrats first should stop lying and secondly there is many of us who use to live in communists countries and reason why we left. It really does not matter how you call it, liberals, democrats, communist, fascists, all the same ideology under many different names. Poison of the mankind (and womankind or peoplekind as well for the idiotic school professors and some Prime Minister.)

      • Cliff says:

        Jerry,
        This MORON sounds like he has been studying the works of the communist rules for radicals, cloward-piven, alinky’s rules for radicals, and Hitler’s mein kampf.. to get his “talking points”(as well as the same old BORING DEMOCOMMUNIST talking points that are broadcast on the “fake news ” networks.) Just a COMMUNIST “parrot”

    • jIM says:

      The problem with the above is that it is and expression of personal opinion. There is nothing in the discussion which shows anything. Rather than take up the next 50 paragraphs describing the Clinton screw ups (both Bill and Hillary) and the stupid accusations which have be proved to be bogus over the past year I will just say
      YOU REALLY HAVE NO GRASP OF WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!

    • Who cares. The democrats lost. Deal with it. The RINO’s obstruct. They’re Losers. We’ll deal with it.

  6. FBEYES says:

    Jersey prophet you’re right on. Watch how quickly the Democrats would change on this.

  7. The President will have to remain on his game, but I believe he stands a good chance in winning in 2020. He has had an agenda that reverberates with his base, and if he remains true so will we.

  8. CaptTurbo says:

    The snowflakes just don’t realize how massively they will lose this civil war they are fomenting.

  9. Hal Lemoyme says:

    Do you think President Trump will win re-election in 2020??
    ABSOLUTELY @ (100%)=326,700,004 US voters

    Hopefully the democrat party hopefully will be abolished

    this is my TRUMPing Truth!!!

  10. Frank says:

    Maybe Trump should do it after the Nov. 2018 elections when the blue wave is crushed by a RED tsunami

  11. Dale Patterson says:

    And again, the left cries no fair when they get their ass’s handed to them and plot to rig
    the system as soon as they can.

    Unfortunately they won’t be able to do that till 2029, at the earliest.

  12. Scott says:

    The damn Democrats, nothing but a bunch of child like stupid jerks. They all should be packed up and set into outer space where they could live with all the other aliens. The sooner “they” are all forced / voted out of office the better. GOD loves President Trump. When will the stupid Democrats realize this.

  13. Don says:

    BETTER NEVER HAPPEN OR THE UNITED STATES WILL NEVER SURVIVE AS A FREE COUNTRY. AMERICA WILL BECOME A TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT, CONTROLLED BUY A DEMOCRAT DICTATOR, LIKE OBAMA, AND A BODY OF MONEY HUNGRY CONTROLFREAKS LIKE LIBERAL POLITICIANS LIKE OBAMA, CONGRESSIONAL PERSONS LIKE, SCHUMER, PELOSI, WATERS AND OTHER NONCONGRESSIONAL PERSONS LIKE SOROS, THE CLINTONS, FAT-BOY IDIOT MOORE AND OTHERS WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN FREE FROM TYRANNICAL, EGOTISTICAL LEADERSHIP AMERICANS UP UNTIL OUR VERY LAST PRESIDENT IN THE PERSON OF OBAMA. THEY MUST NOT SUCCEED!!

  14. Jersey Prophet says:

    Great idea…let’s expand the court to 15 justices! Let’s post the bill RIGHT NOW! That way, President Trump will appoint al least seven more justices.

    If these damned corrupt Dems want 15, why wait until a Dem is president. They should be eager to vote for this change ASAP, right???

    Let’s call their bluff! Put it up for a vote next week!!

    • jemb says:

      President Trump could seat GOD Himself to the Supreme Court and the Democrats would still be crying. Don’t they understand this is not an appointment to be voted on or even discussed and argued about – IT’S AN APPOINTMENT – end of discussion.

      • Bill says:

        If this latest obstructionist movement , like all the ‘roadblocks’ they’ve putu p like sore losers and brats on the school yard since January 2017, when Donald Trump became the LEGALLY elected President of the USA isn’t enough to convince people on the fence about the intentions of the liberals, ‘dumbocraps’ progressives or what the hell you want to call ’em, they must be living in a cave, under a rock or have their heads so far up their ASSES! Sadly they’re oblivious to the antics of these anti American lying thieving bastards whose mantra ‘all for me and F**K everyone else as long as I live my luxury lifestyle, have S**T loads of taxpayers money to pay for all the ‘freebies’ doled out to my future voters, don’t have to answer to anyone, do as I damned well please promoting my own personal agenda, get huge paychecks, all is good and it’s business as usual’ need to get with the program and do what’s in their power to help all of us ‘Make America Great Again’

    • Patriot says:

      Here’s the problem. If you haven’t noticed, the democrats already control the house, about 85% with Rino’s included, and the senate 97% with Rino;s included. That is why President Trump can’t seem to do anything. It is a big game in DC and as long as it goes un-noticed most Republicans that need cover will vote with Trump but there are always just enough to stop any meaningful reform from going through and keep treason from being investigated and prosecuted. In other words we are still in trouble and the Demonrats can make anything they truly need happen. Happy 4th!

  15. Christine says:

    The president is NOT under investigation for impeachment. He is under investigation for collusion with Russia which could lead to impeachment. Quit trying to twist the facts. Especially since they have found absolutely no evidence to prove any wrong doing on the part of OUR PRESIDENT. They do not get the luxury of implying that they are in the process of impeachment until they are where they are trying to get. NEVER GONNA HAPPEN. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020. Good luck with whatever you try nothing has worked so far and I do not believe packing the court will work either.

  16. Big Ed says:

    If there is a need to have 11, 13 or 15 justices on the court, if a Democrat wins the presidency in 2020, we probably need them now, as well. Trump should go ahead and nominate three to seven justices right now, so we can handle justice as it deserves to be handled. The last time a suggestion was made to pack the court, it was made by a Democrat-and it was stopped by other Democrats. Now, the Democrats want to try it again if they get a Democrat president-see how far the Democrats have fallen, how crooked they’ve become and how little everything but Democrat power means to any of them.

  17. Edward Finley says:

    It is time for Patriotic Americans to stand up for our rights in this country! It is time for law enforcement to go after the anarchists who are methodically trying to shoot down the rule of law.

    • cliff says:

      AGREED Edward! BUT…(BIG BUT)
      As the “police” (Law enforcement) are continually told to “stand down” by their DEMOCOMMUNIST “handlers”, it looks like it is going to be left up to WE the PEOPLE to take BACK their country from the MORONS. As far as I am concerned, these “groups” are TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS, and WE have every RIGHT in this country to protect ourselves and our families from this SCUM even if it means using DEADLY FORCE.

  18. Linda says:

    The dems promise everyone everything for free. Who’s going to pay for it ? You and me of course

  19. Russell says:

    Just because your man is in the White House, please vote in the mid term election.

  20. Old Sarge says:

    He could nominate Obama and the liberals would reject it.

  21. Deanne says:

    But here’s the problem, dems are losing in almost every mid term election so they’re “plan” as jumping the gun as they continue with their delusional “hopes” of winning

  22. vern says:

    There is only one way to keep the democrats from getting enough people into office to do the damage they are talking about — the good citizens of USA have to keep voting for the good guys like they did in 2016, and in Wisconsin other years, so the elected officials are trying to Make America Great Again, not destroy it like Saul Alinsky proposed many years ago that Obama and Hillary tried to do.

  23. Steve says:

    Just anything to screw-over America , is what the criminal , anti-America liberals & rinos do . ALL of them deserve GITMO forever , in the same cell as THEIR stinking terrorists .

    • Robin Lee says:

      Steve, GITMO is an acronym for “Giving Inmate Terrorists More Opportunities”. So I believe you would mean GITFO if there were such an acronym, where the F stands for fewer. You can COIN it yourself !

  24. CrustyOldGeezer says:

    Note to the senate.

    The ‘supreme court’ IS NOT a ‘political organization’

    It DOES NOT BELONG to politicians and ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR POLITICAL AGENDA!!!

    Like the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch, the supreme court IS SUBSERVIENT TO WE, THE PEOPLE and to believe otherwise is to court disaster.

    The ‘supreme court’ can only offer ‘opinions’ and ‘opinions’ ARE NOT CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS!

    We can explain it in greater detail if you so desire!

    • Roger Bradshaw says:

      They created law when they said homosexuals could marry. That wasn’t a decision it was a law they created. I’ve never forgotten

  25. Joe says:

    The Huffington Post is a left wing hate paper!

  26. bagster53 says:

    just what we need more morons sitting on the scotus, you see how useless the courts are , after oboma loaded them all with his left wing trolls , what we really need is a way to hold all these government officals accountable , because letting thes government agencies police them selves just doesn’t work , just look at congress, what a joke

  27. Mike H says:

    Do not let these bastards back in .vote them out. Obama did enough damage .God only knows how long it’s gonna take to clean up his mess. With this dumbass they just put in office in New York. Boy are they in for a big one. Higher taxes in New York. wow how much higher can they go. With everybody leaving New York I guess it will only be the illegals there. I hope there smart enough not to keep given them government assistance when it gets out a hand even more than it already is. It’s hard to believe the people in New York are that stupid.

    • cliff says:

      Not ALL of us N.Y’ers are stupid..”Up North” (above the big cities) we are always OUTVOTED by “city dwellers”, welfare SCUM, and illegal immigrants. (basically all “takers”) Kind of hard to get rid of DEMOCOMMUNIST/RINO SCUM when they are constantly voted back in with their promises of “free stuff, “free college tuition”, and many other BRIBES for their VOTE. (then after the “voting” ..forgotten” until the next election.) I guess some idiots have short memories, or LOVE the “freebies” they get. I would like to see N.Y. State cut in two and have two districts with two “governors” instead of the COMMUNIST DICTATOR we have, that thinks he is a “king” and royally decrees new “laws” usually in the dead of night, while his “court jesters” (“representatives”) bow and kiss his butt and do his every bidding.

    • Linda Vi says:

      Yeah they ste

  28. M. Scott Harford says:

    They are counting their chickens before they are hatched! They have to win (probably by theft if they do) before they can do that. But then, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander! We too can pack the court. I can hear them squealing like little girl stuck pigs already; maybe little boys which is worse than little girls! Then again, they are assuming we will all just sit back with our arms folded and allow them to destroy our nation!

  29. J C says:

    I totally agree! These people need help! Remember Jonestown. The Kool Aid is working. Civility is gone. We all need to pray for our adversaries, that they will see the Light, & our President Trump & his Cabinet will stay on coarse.
    God Bless America & MAGA

  30. We says:

    The only problem with this plan is two fold. One the dems are not going to beat Trump in 2020. Two Ginsberg ain’t gonna live to 2020…she’s already brain dead…..lack of oxygen…..so as you can see…curses foiled again

    • Robert Sylvester says:

      You are so right ! Trump is definitely in re-election mode while Liberal Progressive idiots are pushing their outrageous radical schemes – abolish ICE – increase number of Supreme Court justices to get their majority – Yes, Ginsburg will not be around much longer and Breyer’s age is close behind her – so Trump’s supreme court may eventually turn out to become the most conservative court in history.

  31. seastar says:

    You keep this up and a democrat will NEVER get elected President ever again. They have proven they can not be trusted to do for the AMERICAN PEOPLE ,they only do for themselves .

    • cliff says:

      Seastar,
      THAT is why the DEMOCOMMUNISTS are constantly hiring “drivers” to bus ILLEGALS, (usually in the middle of the night) and packing them into the major cities for VOTING. This was always happening when OSCUMBAG the foreign, gay, mooslime FRAUD was “president”. And THAT is why the DEMOCOMMUNISTS are fighting so hard against PRESIDENT TRUMP because he is ACTUALLY instructing his people to follow the LAW and the COMMUNIST SCUM that are trying to destroy this Republic don’t like it when their schemes are exposed.

      • Robin Lee says:

        The key is figuring out how to remove George Soros without actually killing him because he’s paying billions to cause riots ( I even saw an ad that paid people to incite riots. ) and to create the New World Order. Once that happens, then we really WILL be like Germany in World War 2.

  32. True Believer says:

    I just keep shaking my head ever day when I hear such crazy stuff. Lets not make our country the greatest country on earth, oh no, we have to have gun control, pack the courts, go against everything that Pres. Trump has been doing for the good of the country and then to find out he was right after all. We have to get these sick people out of control of anything. Lets open up the asylums again. Probably that is the reason they closed them in the first place.

  33. cliff says:

    The time has come to vote OUT ALL DEMOCOMMUNISTS that are bent on turning this country into a third-world CRAP HOLE and fulfill OSCUMBAG’S sick twisted “legacy”. These “tactics’ border on TREASON and ALL the SCUM that are “scheming” should be arrested, charged, and punished to the fullest extent of the LAW. This is no longer “free speech” but an attempt to overthrow the Duly-elected PRESIDENT and the Government of the United States.
