As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Schumer Demands “Mainstream” Supreme Court Nominees

Oh, like Elean Kagan and Sonia Sotomoyor? From the Washington Examiner:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday he will absolutely block President Trump’s pick for the vacant Supreme Court seat if the nominee is not “mainstream” enough.

“If the nominee is not bipartisan and mainstream, we absolutely will keep the seat open,” Schumer told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The New York Democrat, who was booed during a speech at Trump’s inauguration, had previously criticized his Republican colleagues for blocking former President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, last year.

      • Hungary has opened fire on Soros. I provided a non conservative link but if you google Soros Hungary you will get a lot of information. The point is, for me, the battle has begun and Soros is no longer going to be able to hide under his big rock .

        Soros has support of the “globalists”, so it is not an isolated battle. Others will have to join as his actions are world wide. He and Barry have the same world wide goals. That’s one of the reasons why he has had much of a free rein to build and fund these organizations over these last 8 years in the US.

        The DOJ, and the FBI have been very active in allowing Soros to build a foundation here.

    • Bikers for Trump leader Chris Cox asked 15 men at the Women’s March in DC, how many of them were paid for by George Soros. They all affirmed they were.
      He has no place in American politics. Crooked like most of the other Democrats.

      • Doesn’t surprise me a bit. The new Attorney General should start a criminal investigation of Soros right now. Even the French are sick of Soros criminal activities. Soros was convicted of insider trading in 2002 by a French appeals court and fined 2.2 million euros — the equivalent of what he was accused of making — after a Paris court found that he had bought and sold shares of Société Générale in 1988 with the knowledge that the bank might be a takeover target.

  1. Another O/T….FOX did not renew George Will’s contract and FOX did hire Farange as a contributor. (I hope I spelled his name right-my apologies if I did not)

  2. Schumer has also stated that the dems in the senate are going to make it hard on Betsy DeVos and Dr. Carson.

    We’ll see what kind of stance Mitch McConnell takes.

    Mike Pompeo is next up I believe on Monday.

  3. Chuck Schumer’s “mainstream” is not my mainstream.

    Two days in a row a FOX correspondent has been outside the White House at around 6:00am. The lights upstairs are already on and they are assuming Trump is already working. What a man!!!

      • The man sleeps 3-4 hours a night, if that. While his friends, enemies and colleagues are fast asleep, Trump strategizes his meetings with them the following day. Its like we have two presidents in this one man.

        • You hit the nail on the head Bonnie and we should all continue to pray for the entire Trump family because this isn’t going to be easy for some of them including the little one.

          • Carol, he’s got what he needs. A wife that first and foremost will take care of Barron (and herself). His family is behind him 100%. The party has fallen into place. He has a majority in the Congress and the Senate. Move over establishment.

  4. The Dems and the Left demand….

    Someone needs to tell Schumer that

    HRC is not and never will be POTUS

    Schumer is not MAJORITY House Leader

    Obama put inpenetrable ideolgoues on the Supreme Court. It’s time for intelligence and balance and rulings in accordance with the Constitution.
