Democrats Disingenuous Demeanor

in The Political Slant by

As quoted recently, on or about October 26, 2020 by political journal  The Hill, by reporter Celine Castronuovo, Rep. Alexandria  Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took to Twitter late Monday to call for the  expansion of the Supreme Court as Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as a  justice, with the progressive first-term lawmaker arguing that  Republicans don’t believe Democrats “have the stones to play hardball  like they do.”

More of AOC from The Hill:  “Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices,” she wrote. “By expanding the court, we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people.”

OK, Um, don’t we have the Electoral College so that populous, left-leaning states such as New York and California do not run roughshod over the more sparsely populated states? If you choose to do  away with the Electoral College, then, by all means be fair, and offer  the states such as Wyoming, Iowa, the Dakotas and the other  conservative states the option of seceding, since it seems that they  do not share the “values of the American people.”

While AOC may be the spokesperson for socialist-leaning “let’s take from the rich and then give all the money away” folks in her congressional district, I’m not convinced that she is a “spokesperson for the American people.”

Hardball? Who’s been playing hardball?

Let’s see now, they used the  FBI to investigate a campaign, dragged people into courts, tapped  phones, and tried their best to convict employees and contributors of  a legitimate political campaign of violating election laws, all based  on the fictitious testimony of someone who was paid by the campaign’s  opponent. The Democrats have misused the most powerful law-enforcement agency in the world, but it’s the Republicans who are playing hardball?

They employed the efforts of the FBI and used secret courts to gain access to private information, based on what has now been proven as fictitious testimony. And that’s softball?

I will admit that of late,  the FBI in their blunders make the Three Stooges look like Valedictorians, but they still have a lot of muscle and they know how  to use it, or, should I say, misuse it, as they have been played for  chumps in a political game by a party that just can’t play fair, and  tries to cheat a lot of the time. And yeah, the Republicans are playing hardball.

The Republicans of the U.S. Senate nominated and confirmed a Supreme Court justice, all to the letter of the law.

Playing hardball would be a serious investigation that charged all of  the FBI participants with conspiracy, convicting them and sentencing  them to one of the nastiest federal prisons to be found, for colluding  and conspiring to violate the constitutional rights of people involved in a presidential election. That would be hardball, and it will never happen. Hardball would be locking away in solitary for the next five decades every FBI official even remotely involved in the “investigation” and revoking their pensions. That would be hardball, and it will never, ever, happen.

Hardball would be to attempt to impeach a sitting president when all of their other efforts to remove him failed. Oh wait, the Democrats tried that as well, with no small encouragement from AOC herself. The testimony for the impeachment was not heard in the congressional chambers, they were heard in the basement, out of public view.

Let’s do away with the “sunshine laws” and hold hearings that could possibly change our nation’s leadership in closed rooms, not open to the public, like Hitler, Stalin and Mao did. After all, the public is too stupid to understand the sophisticated testimony of impeachment, or the genius remarks of AOC. Let’s impeach our president and not let the American people in on the testimony. Yeah, that’s just softball.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is contemplating packing the Supreme Court, for the first time since FDR thought of it eighty-odd years ago. FDR was advised against it for a reason. If the Democrats pack the SCOTUS, the Republicans will retaliate and add more justices, packing it even further. Just because it is not in violation of our constitutional mandates does not mean it should be done.

AOC is demonstrating a conspicuous lack of insight (if she ever had any) as well as an unenlightened view of our government. Given her past behavior of walking the fine line between legal and illegal and dismal failures, AOC’s “hardball” efforts can only be construed to mean that she intends to violate the Constitution of the United States. AOC has struck out, missed every soft pitch that Nancy Pelosi could give to her. Now that she’s proven her incompetence, she’s going to double down.

Like many of the spoiled brats of her generation where both soccer teams won and all of the players took home a trophy, she can’t bear losing, so she’s going to press the self-destruct button on the Enterprise.

The Republicans of the U.S. Senate nominated and confirmed a Supreme Court justice, all to the letter of the law.

Given all of the attempts to bring down the government, illegally imprison American citizens, and initiate federal investigations based on biased and bribed information, if confirming a Supreme Court justice is an intolerable act requiring a “hard ball” response, we really need to rethink our government

Or better yet, rethink representatives like AOC.

Your choice, citizens.
