Even in doubt, don’t expect the Republicans to care about past principals and acts put onto others. They blocked President Barrack Obama from getting his final appointment in the Supreme Court ahead of the elections. It was about 247 days and now under 50 days to the elections. There is a new seat, as Ruth Bader Ginsburg died.
The Republicans blocked Merrick Garland and when President Donald Trump got into office they got their own candidate Neil Gorsuch in his stead. Therefore, the Republicans better back-off this time. They should rest on this one and wait out. If they have any moral character left…
The Republican’s can use all tactics, they are allowed to use all means to extend powers. Make new by-laws and new moral codes. Alas, the same never fits to them. They can be against the Filibuster in the Senate. However, they loved to use it when they we’re in majority. That is just how things goes with these gentlemen.
Now, there is an open seat in the Supreme Court. That could swing-in favour of the Republican’s to appoint that one. Trump already have Gorsuch and Kavanaugh appointed to the Court. This would be his third appointment. However, if the game is fair. The man should wait and especially since they created this moral code themselves. It benefited Trump and his allies. So, now they should step aside.
If not, the House of Representatives should block it. They should stop the process and put breaks on. Just to prove in fairness. Since, it was all dandy to block Garland. So, they GOP could get their bloke Gorsuch in.
We know the Supreme Court can be the final stage of a contested election. It can be the final nail in the coffin. If you have enough friendly faces there, it can sway an election. Just like it did back in the day with George W. Bush. He got help from the appointments of his father. Therefore, Trump would reckon to have much allies on the bench as possible. That is why I believe that he doesn’t care if he breaks the code that was made for himself.
From a government who has no issues breaking laws, statutes and using all means to enriching itself while in office. Will not care if they are demeaning and mocking the other party. That is what they been doing all along. This is why the President is holding on to Executive Orders, instead of actually getting legislation passed. He cannot stomach to defend his cases and his stances at Congress.
That is why this man, this President will most likely breach this level of trust. Especially, when his party fought with tooth and nail not to elect Garland. They will now show, if they have a heart or if they have spine filled with greed. I wouldn’t be shocked, if the Republicans said it was his right to do so.
Even if it was Obama’s right to do so too. They still blocked and stopped it in the final year. Now it’s the final months… This should wait to the next one… that is only fair. However, the government system of United States isn’t fair. That is why a man like Trump is on the throne and gotten away with his crimes too. Peace.
