Josh Hawley Introduces Measure to Censure Chuck Schumer After Threatening SCOTUS Justices

Schumer’s language was beyond the pale.

Published

Missouri US Senator Josh Hawley plans on introducing a measure to formally censure Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, after the head Democrat threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh in unprecedented terms.

Hawley confirmed his plans to bring up a formal censure motion on Wednesday night. Schumer had aggressively threatened the Supreme Court Justices earlier in the day, stating that the Trump appointees were going to face consequences for their rulings upholding restrictions on abortions in conservative states.

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.

Schumer’s remarks were so vitriolic that they merited a formal rebuke from the court’s Chief Justice, John Roberts.

Schumer refused to back down in light of widespread rebuke of his attack on the Supreme Court. He claims that Roberts is merely one of several conservative hacks on the court, and is colluding with conservatives to make him look bad.

President Donald Trump tweeted on Schumer’s anti-judicial threats on Wednesday, perhaps suggesting that he’d be on board with Hawley’s upcoming effort to censure the Senate Majority Leader.

Democrats’ longtime strategy of achieving unlimited power over American society through the unlimited power of judicial activist-princes seems to have been ground to a halt by President Trump’s appointments to the federal court system, confirming a wide range of conservative judges to circuit courts as well as the two Supreme Court Justices Schumer threatened. As it becomes increasingly clear that Democrats are not going to get their way in undemocratic fashion through the court system, it could become far more common for the Left to threaten and agitate against duly appointed judges such as Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
