Kid Rock took to Twitter on Wednesday to verify that a new website, KidRockForSenate.com, is legitimate. The website reads, “are you scared?” along with a photo of the rocker next to a stuffed deer. The site also links to a web store to buy campaign merchandise.

The Macomb County musician, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, added that a big announcement was soon to come.

“Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future,” Kid Rock tweeted.

The Michigan Republican Party has previously hinted that they were seeking to draft Kid Rock to challenge Senator Debbie Stabenow in 2018, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Kid Rock had originally endorsed Ben Carson in the Republican primaries, but quickly shifted to support the Trump campaign.

“My feeling: Let the motherf*cking business guy run it like a f*cking business,” Kid Rock told Rolling Stone during an interview in February, 2016. “I’m digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary or Bernie, or you get Rubio or Cruz or whoever, there’s going to be the same sh*t.”

The ‘Bawitdaba’ singer visited the White House in April along with Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent. The group made waves when they mockingly posed in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton.

In December, Kid Rock began selling red hats in his merch store that said, “Make America Badass Again” — a play on Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” hats. He also sold shirts that read “GOD GUNS & TRUMP,” and one which showed the electoral map and labeled the red areas as “America” and the blue as “Dumbfuckistan.”

Another shirt in his highly political merch store reads “_onald Trump,” then adds,  “The ‘D’ is missing because it’s in every hater’s mouth.”

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

on

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
