A Senator from Utah who has been touted as a conservative leader and a name that has been floated for a soon-to-be vacated Supreme Court seat has a long history of trying to thwart President Donald J. Trump.
“Mr. Trump, I respectfully ask you, with all due respect, to step aside,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said in a video in October 2016. “Step down. Allow someone else to carry the banner of these [conservative] principles.”
Lee fancies himself a “true conservative” who has only warmed up to President Trump after an undeniably conservative first 18 months in office.
“Allow someone else to carry the banner of these principles that have made our country great,” he said. “The principles that will stand as a beacon of hope to the American family, rather than weighing down the American people, rather than weighing down the very principles that will help us in win in November.”
Had Trump stepped down in October of 2016, of course, the election would have been a bloodbath, and Lee’s precious “conservative” principles would have been permanently finished. The video is absolutely cringeworthy.
Not to mention, Lee does not have the most conservative record of late. The Senator sponsored a bill earlier this year that would have codified gay marriage into law for the first time in U.S. history.
“A Republican Senator who introduced a bill to protect the rights of religious people to express disapproval of gay marriage without fear of government reprisal has backed down.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has added an amendment to the First Amendment Defense Act to protect gay marriage from discrimination. The bill currently sits at the Senate Judiciary Committee.
‘Liberty Counsel supported this bill with the original language,’ said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. ‘Now that he has insisted that the language be changed, we will not only withdraw our support but we will actively oppose the bill.’
LC is an international non-profit public policy and litigation organization focused on religious freedom, sanctity of life, and sanctity of marriage.”
BLP Passage Ends.
The last thing President Trump needs is a Judas on the Supreme Court, especially when there are so many well-qualified candidates that will actually uphold conservative principles.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
