The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing going on today in Washington DC is a mockery of the process, as Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is making her Republican critics look ridiculous.
Particularly outrageous are Senators Josh Hawley of Missouri, Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
These Senators had no issue with the qualifications of Amy Coney Barrett, whose qualifications and intellect were far less than those of Jackson.
Clearly, racism is rearing its ugly head, as the concept of an African American woman becoming the first ever on the Supreme Court, after 108 white men have been on the Court, and four white women, and two African American males, and one Hispanic woman.
The Republican Party has now become the party of anarchy and chaos, and support of domestic terrorism, absolutely mind boggling!
Not only did much of the party in Congress support denying Joe Biden his Electoral College win!
Many have chosen to ignore the reality of the January 6 Insurrection, a domestic terrorism that caused death, injuries, and destruction at the US Capitol, and just want to move on!
And now, eight Republican Senators have opposed putting mask opponents on a “no fly list”, who have committed the equivalent of domestic terrorism against airline employees and passengers innumerable times on domestic and foreign flights!
Such unruly passengers on aviation flights should face arrest and imprisonment, but more than that!
They should be barred from EVER again being able to use any airline for any flights anywhere!
But these eight Republican Senators—Rick Scott and Marco Rubio of Florida; Mike Lee of Utah; Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming; Ted Cruz of Texas; Kevin Cramer of North Dakota; James Lankford of Oklahoma; and John Hoeven of North Dakota, think otherwise, which is astounding beyond belief!
This is recklessness and lack of concern for public safety beyond the pale!
The Republicans in the US Senate are overall the worst scoundrels in Republican Party history, with this present group mostly lacking in courage and principles, and have shown willingness to follow Donald Trump and his promotion of Fascist authoritarianism!
Following is a list of the double worst Republican Senators out of the 50 presently serving in that body, in state alphabetical order:
Tom Cotton of Arkansas
Rick Scott of Florida
Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
Rand Paul of Kentucky
John Kennedy of Louisiana
Josh Hawley of Missouri
James Inhofe of Oklahoma
Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee
Ted Cruz of Texas
Mike Lee of Utah
Ron Johnson of Wisconsin
The Republican Party of Donald Trump is demonstrating once again its lack of compassion for victims of COVID 19 and the Second Great Depression which has developed as a result of Trump’s refusal to take action early, and be consistent on promoting patriotism and sacrifice on the part of the American people!
The Republican Senate majority has resisted any substantial federal aid, and there are plenty of villains in this matter, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky; Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin; Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky; Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania; Senator Ted Cruz of Texas; Senator Mike Lee of Utah; Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas; and others.
Hopefully, the two runoffs in Georgia will lead to two Democrats, and the ability of the Joe Biden Administration to have control of both houses of Congress in the 117th Congress of 2021-2022!
