Two GOP Senators Signal Opposition to Pro-Life SCOTUS Appointee

Published

on

Two GOP Senators may flake on voting for President Donald J. Trump’s Supreme Court appointee upon the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

According to Life Site NewsSen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), both of whom support abortion, could sway the Senate away from Trump’s pick.

“I view Roe v. Wade as being settled law. It’s clearly precedent and I always look for judges who respect precedent,” Collins said.

Murkowski issued a statement in which she praised Kennedy for “holding the Court together and doing right by the Constitution,” adding that she would prefer a Kennedy-esque appointee.

That could spell trouble for for Trump’s nominee. Justice Kennedy is viewed as a centrist, and was often socially liberal.

Big League Politics reported:

“[Kennedy] was one of three ‘conservative’ Justices to uphold the decision in Roe V. Wade, a controversial case that essentially legalized abortion, in a 1992 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

‘At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.’ From the founders’ belief in ‘created equal’ [by God], this language travels to the furthest opposite pole of individual self-definition, verging on self-creation,” Kennedy and his concurring Justices wrote in their opinion in Casey.”

BLP Passage Ends. 

Republicans do not have a large buffer for turncoat voters in the Senate. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is on sabbatical battling brain cancer, leaving the Republicans with 50-49 margin. In the event of a tie, Vice President Mike Pence would cast the tie-breaking vote. Two Republicans who oppose Trump’s pick could doom the nominee.

It is highly unlikely that any Democrat will vote for a Trump nominee.

After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy

Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.

Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.

“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.

This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:

Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The full ad can be seen here:

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.

“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.

Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
