Our favored media talent Tucker Carlson telling it the way it is. Tucker tells listeners that if the GOP Senate doesn’t start protecting voters, America could be a socialist country in a few years. He says that many Americans would like to avoid that, and he’s correct.
Last week, Senate Republicans declared in effect that all allegations against Brett Kavanaugh must be heard no matter how frivolous or obviously fraudulent they are. Senate Republicans are the ones who made the Court of Credibility possible in this country.
Shouldn’t surprise anyone The New Yorker ran this piece. How many more pieces like it are coming? As many as it takes, no question about that.
We can’t control the Senate Republicans, obviously. They exist in their own world. But we can remind them what is at stake here.
If Brett Kavanaughwho’s a mainstream judge, a moderate, really, a man who’s literally married to George W. Bush’s assistant can’t get confirmed to Supreme Court then no Republican can get confirmed to the Supreme Court, even with a Republican Congress ever.
But it’s worse than that. There’s a mid-term election just weeks from now. If you’re a Republican, you may be wondering why should I bother to vote. You backed Trump two years ago, your brother-in-law from Brooklyn mocked you for it, so did a lot of other people but you did it anyway.
Why? Because you wanted secure borders. You wanted an end to ObamaCare and you wanted non-crazy people on the Supreme Court of the United States.
You didn’t get the first two. You’re starting to realize you probably never will get them.
But the Supreme Court? That ought to be easy. And yet somehow we’re all discovering it’s not easy. Why is that? Well there’s a really simple reason. Republicans in the Senate don’t really care about you. If they did care about you, they would protect you.
That’s what you do for people you care about, you protect them. If the Republicans cared, they would protect you from the foreign invasion our immigration system has become. They’d protect your children from the torrent of mandatory propaganda they face in schools that are bankrupting you.
They’d protect your privacy and your freedom of speech, freedom of worship from the tech monopolies that seek to crush all of those things. And they’d protect Brett Kavanaugh from the obvious smears that are destroying his family and his life.
But they won’t protect him. And they won’t protect him for the same reasons they won’t protect you. Because it’s hard and embarrassing or because they just don’t feel like it.
This could be a socialist country in a few years. It’s moving that way. A lot of us would like to be protected from that.
Our representatives don’t seem to notice.
Good luck in November, gentlemen.
