The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), the electoral arm of the GOP establishment, are reportedly 100% behind the appointment of Democrat Party donor Kelly Loeffler to the U.S. Senate.
The announcement will be made official on Wednesday according to AJC.com, as Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will announce that Loeffler will replace departing Sen. Johnny Isakson. The NRSC has indicated they will be treating her as a legitimate incumbent and giving her their full backing.
Despite having a long history of donating to Democratic Party politicians, Loeffler ingratiated herself with the GOP establishment by giving a $750,000 donation to a Super PAC supporting Mitt Romney’s failed presidential ambitions in 2012.
That payment showed the NRSC that she is willing to play ball and follow orders from Conservative Inc. During a recent phone call with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, he assured Loeffler that the big money would be fully behind her. Loeffler is now a made woman, and she is slated to assume her role in the U.S. Senate next year.
President Donald Trump recommended that Kemp appoint Rep. Doug Collins, a Republican lawmaker with a long track record of standing strong for conservative values in the U.S. House. Gov. Kemp has ignored his advice and instead will choose a pay-to-play businesswoman with a history of supporting abortion.
Loeffler sits on the board of the Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, which is Georgia’s top abortion provider. She also owns a WNBA team, the Atlanta Dream, that participated in a voluntary profit-sharing scheme with Planned Parenthood and other far-left social justice charities.
Pro-life organizations rightfully see Gov. Kemp’s appointment of Loeffler to the U.S. Senate as a slap in the face.
“We’re past the point of ever being willing to accept sort of a passive argument for someone’s pro-life advocacy or pro-life position,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony’s List. “All we’ve seen is evidence of her leadership positions and what she’s failed to do with them.”
“After the Senate gains made by conservative and pro-life candidates in the 2018 election, this would be a huge setback,” said Tom McClusky, president of March for Life, in a statement.
Rep. Collins told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he would “strongly” consider a primary challenge next year if he did not receive the Senate appointment. Similar to what happened with Judge Roy Moore during his U.S. Senate race in 2017 and what is going on with former Kansas attorney general Kris Kobach’s U.S. Senate race now, the NRSC will not make it easy for Collins to defeat the establishment’s choice. Gov. Kemp is betraying the conservatives who put him into office.
Democrats Ready Lobbying Push to End Senate Filibuster In the Event of Biden Victory
They hope to dominate the opposition.
D.C. Democrats are preparing a lobbying effort to erase the traditional filibuster rule in the United States Senate, which requires 60 votes for the passage of most new legislation.
Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, will lead Fix Our Senate, a group that will demand the Senate alter its rules to jam through a progressive policy agenda.
“Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a future President Biden and Senate leadership that they expect and demand speedy Senate rules reform in 2021 and will not accept more gridlock, delays, and excuses,” Zupnick told NBC.
Senator Chris Coons of Connecticut had earlier warned that he would not ‘accept’ no for an answer when it comes to the implementation of a Biden administration agenda. Many Democrats are still upset that the then-Republican Senate minority blocked much of President Obama’s policy wish list during his administration.
“I will not stand idly by for four years and watch the Biden administration’s initiatives blocked at every turn,” said the neoliberal Democrat, who frequently fashions himself as a moderate. Coons is reportedly playing a role in preparing the push to end the Senate filibuster. Joe Biden himself has been reluctant to sign off on such a proposal, claiming he wants to wait and see how he would potentially work with Senate Republicans as President.
Democrats hope to force through a boatload of progressive policies, including federal gun control(with the possibility of confiscation), unlimited abortion, new taxes on middle-class Americans, globalist free trade deals, and massive increases in legal immigration.
The demand that major legislation be passed with merely 50 votes will quickly disappear in the event that Democrats fail to secure a Senate majority in November.
