Conservative leaders in the United States have decided to totally waste their time trying to get Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to confirm hundreds of Donald Trump’s nominees, including 149 judges. The reason it’s a waste of time is that McConnell allies himself with Democrats when it comes to obstructing the president.
Until “We the People” rise up and demand that McConnell be removed as Senate Majority Leader, nothing will get done to pass the Trump agenda which McConnell opposes vigorously.
The leaders signing on to the request is a veritable who’s who of conservative activists, which include former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese, Secretary Ken Blackwell, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, First Liberty Institute CEO Kelly Shackelford, Club for Growth President David McIntosh, Citizens United President David Bossie, Tea Party Patriots President Jenny Beth Martin, Liberty Consulting President Ginni Thomas, CNP Action Chairman Bill Walton, and Concerned Women for America President Penny Nance.
These are just 10 of the 112 conservative leaders telling the U.S. Senate that the tens of millions of Americans these luminaries represent have run out of patience and are, in a memo obtained by Breitbart News, demanding immediate action.
A U.S. president is only one human being, so he cannot actually implement the agenda that the American people elected him to enact unless he has thousands of political appointees leading and managing all of the departments, agencies, divisions, and offices in the U.S. government to carry out his orders and supervise the 2.5 million people who work in his administration. Per Article II of the U.S. Constitution, more than 1,200 of the most senior of these positions can only be nominated by the president and then must be confirmed by the Senate.
Regarding federal courts, the Constitution further specifies that every single federal judge—from the Supreme Court to 13 courts of appeals to 94 district trial courts—must likewise be nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate. Without Senate confirmation, the entire third branch of the federal government is hamstrung, unable to uphold the rule of law for millions of Americans.
Currently, a staggering 149 judicial vacancies exist, yet the Senate has only confirmed 7 of President Trump’s 56 judicial nominees—nominees that are being praised across the board for their extraordinary caliber.
Besides the judicial appointments, many high level appointees within the executive branch are not being confirmed. These inactive confirmations have huge national security implications. For example, when John Kelly was moved from the DHS, they have not had a leader because of the problem of getting someone confirmed. No United States president in history has been held to this low amount of confirmed nominees.
I only hope that if another Democrat is ever elected president, the House majority leader shuts down the entire nominating process. That means we can’t have a RINO with no backbone like McConnell.
Over 62 million people voted for the Trump agenda and one snowflake leader is preventing it from being implemented. In the 2018 Senate elections we need one litmus test. Any candidate who says they support McConnell need to be defeated and badly. Knocking off Luther Strange was a good step but it was only the first step. Barasso, Heller and Flake must go.
