Jeff Flake to Block Conservative Judges Until Mueller Granted Constitution Defying Powers

Published

on

Arizona’s lame duck Senator, Jeff Flake, announced Thursday that he would use his position on the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee to block the Trump administration’s appointments of conservative originalist judges until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brings up his pet project- a bill granting special powers to Special Counsel Robert Mueller- up for a vote on the Senate floor.

Flake has made an ongoing campaign to grant powers to Mueller a defining feature of his final months in the Senate. The legislation, also marshaled by the Senator’s Democratic handler, Chris Coons, would exempt Robert Mueller’s prosecutorial office from the traditional constitutional restraints placing the Department of Justice under the supervision of the Executive Branch. If Flake succeeded in enshrining Mueller- who has never been confirmed by the Senate- Anti-Trump ideological operatives within the Department of Justice would have complete authority over the Special Counsel’s Russian conspiracy witch hunt.

McConnell had so far dismissed the need for Flake’s shot in the dark, seeing no need to place a suspicious government bureaucrat outside the traditional prosecutorial constraints imposed upon the Justice Department. Now, it seems the Flake will test his hand by possibly blocking the stream of conservative justices sent through the Judiciary committee. So much for his supposed belief in conservative originalism- Flake seems to put a higher legislative priority on empowering the deep state and institutional left.

Flake has been an embarrassment to conservatives and Arizonans for long enough. Now facing the prospect of impending retirement and replacement with a like-minded progressive Democrat, it’s likely he won’t be remembered for anything more than making himself to nuisance to the conservative movement he claims to so purely represent. Unfortunately, it could be possible that conservatives and Republicans won’t be able to truly rid themselves of the Flake until his potential 2020 independent candidacy is finally defeated.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
