WATCH: Louie Gohmert Takes Control of Dem Climate Hearing, Gets Votes To Adjourn

An embarrassing oversight on the part of the Democrats.

House Democrats scheduled a House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee hearing on the topic of “climate change” Tuesday, only to embarrassingly fail to show up.

“House Democrats scheduled a subcommittee hearing on climate change. Not enough of them showed up to outvote the Republicans,” The Blaze’s Nate Madden reported.

When the ranking member of the subcommittee Rep. Louie Gohment (R-Texas) moved to adjourn the hearing given the lack of attendance, subcommittee Chairman Rep. TJ Cox (D-Calif.) called a vote on the motion.

Despite a strong chorus of “aye” votes to adjourn, and only one apparent “nay,” Cox said that “in the opinion of the Chair, the nays [had] it.” A roll was called and the clerk announced that the “ayes” numbered four, while the “nays” number two.

In laymen’s terms, Cox appeared to assert that two “nays” from the Democratic members of the subcommittee outweighed four “ayes” from the Republican members of the subcommittee.

Yikes.

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.
