In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Left demands Breyer retire after McConnell says he would not confirm Biden pick in 2024

Ruth Bader Ginsburg hung on until the very end, and Amy Coney Barrett ended up replacing her. The Left is thinking they’ve seen this movie before.

According to Fox News:

Some on the left are re-upping their calls for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire from the bench Monday after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would block a nominee from President Biden in 2024 if Republicans are in the Senate majority.

McConnell, R-Ky., made the comments on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, sparking outrage from many liberals who recoiled when McConnell did the same thing in 2016 to former President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, then-Judge Merrick Garland.

“Breyer needs to retire,” liberal activist Charlotte Clymer tweeted. “Greatness in public service has to also mean knowing when it’s time to pass the baton, and it’s time.”

“Certainly feels good to yell online about this,” former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau added, “but the only audience that really matters is Stephen Breyer, @JoeManchinWV, @kyrstensinema, and a handful of other Senate Dems who are hiding behind them.”

Rep. Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., who has been vocal in supporting packing the Supreme Court and in calling for Breyer to step down, also weighed in on McConnell’s comment.

“When I became the first person in Congress to call for Justice Breyer to retire now, while President Biden can still appoint a successor, some people asked whether it was necessary,” Jones said. “Yes. Yes, it is.”

  1. Three separate but equal branches of government no more.

    Frightening times we are living in.

    As a citizen, I feel helpless.

    1. You are not alone in feeling helpless. This is a characteristic of a 3rd world country governed by corrupt government “leadership”. Witness the people of Russia and Venezuela, just to name a few examples. All their protests, marches, objections, they all amount to a hill of beans; they feel helpless. In addition to helplessness, there are other characteristics of 3rd world countries that we are now seeing in our country, 3rd world countries run by power hungry “leadership” who are supported by the wealthy Establishment, a sycophant press, rigged elections, etc., etc. Ominous dark clouds have settled over our country. God help us.

      1. Thanks The Woot for posting. I read the AZ AG letter you cited. It’s clear that Garland is nothing more than a political hack, a far left extremist, a deep state malignant actor, a Swamp creature who doesn’t give a hoot about our Constitution or the Rule of Law.
