Instead of solving problems for Americans, Democrats in Congress will be holding a hearing about slavery reparations featuring Hollywood stars and race-baiting social justice authors to create further divisions among the people.
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties will hold the hearing next Wednesday with actor Danny Glover and author Ta-Nehisi Coates giving testimony.
The purpose of the hearings is supposedly “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is leading the charge, proposing a resolution calling for a study of reparations that was previously championed by now-retired Democratic Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).
Newly-elected Democrats, the radicalized women of color whose voices will not be silenced, are coming out in favor of a race-based handouts program.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the foul-mouthed Muslim pushing to impeach President Donald Trump, is working on a reparations bill, according to a post she made on Twitter last year.
I am on it. I would like to ask the incredible Rep. Maxine Waters or John Lewis if they would be introducing HR40 to give it the kind of weight it deserves. No matter, I am willing to.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MI) is taking it a step further, arguing that Hispanic people ought to get reparations as well because of the economic injustice that white people are responsible for perpetrating upon all people of color.
“People think reparations is reparations for slavery, but really, economically speaking, reparations are for the damage done by the New Deal and redlining because that is where we saw a compounding of the existing inequity from the legacy of slavery, where we drew red lines around black communities,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“We said white communities will get home loans and they will get access to the basic bedrock of wealth in America and this will be your heirloom and we gave white America the heirloom that appreciated overtime — that people still benefit from today and we did not give to African-American and Mexican communities, Puerto Rican communities,” she added.
As Trump focuses on his agenda of jobs, trade and national security heading into 2020, the Democrats are increasingly embracing the extreme Left and stoking racial tensions before next year’s presidential election.
FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days
There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.
There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.
John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.
In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.
Yes, Trump has time to nominate and get his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. EVERY SINGLE VOTE ON A #SCOTUS NOMINEE OF THE LAST 45 YEARS was voted on in less time than what Trump has between now and the end of his current term. pic.twitter.com/og5aOZsiw1

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.
McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
