The left and the turncoats within the Republican Party have worked to portray President Obama’s Supreme Court pick as a “moderate.” As PolitiStick has previously reported, Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court is no “moderate.”
Sure, Merrick Garland may be slightly right of Stalin in his views on freedom, but that hardly makes him a “moderate.” America has become so accustomed to far-left politics and judicial activism being the norm that the Obama Administration is hoping to sell Garland as a moderate when in reality, he’s a far-left radical that can appear moderate when juxtaposed against the tyrants with whom we have become so accustomed.
To push-back against this preposterous fiction, a conservative group, the Judicial Crisis Network, has orchestrated a multi-state ad buy to oppose Garland.
The ad will run online and in West Virginia, Colorado, North Dakota, Iowa and New Hampshire starting Friday.
“The NRA opposes him because the Second Amendment is at stake,” a voiceover says in the ad. “Small-business leaders oppose him because he’d harm our fragile economy. Liberals agree he’d be the deciding vote for partial-birth abortion. He is no moderate.”
Democrats and some turncoat “moderate” Republicans have called for a vote, insisting that it is a duty of the Senate to vote upon whatever radical Obama deems to throw their way.
However, in reality, not only does the Constitution not require the Senate to hold hearings or a vote upon a judicial nominee, but the original intent of the provisions were exactly the opposite as the Senate was supposed to serve as a check upon the power of the president.
Further, the precedent has long been established by both Democrats and Republicans that the Senate can refuse a vote in an election year to await the nomination of a new nominee by the next president.
Merrick Garland is an astonishingly anti-Second Amendment judicial activist and far from what America needs at a time when the balance of power on the court is 4-4 in terms of ideology.
The next Supreme Court justice can make or break America’s future and we need to take it seriously. That begins by reminding our lawmakers that any wavering on this important issue will cost them dearly in November.
