Schumer Says He Will Oppose Gorsuch Nomination, Threatens Filibuster

Tyler Durden's picture

Moments ago, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer said he would oppose the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and urge fellow Democrats to do the same. Schumer's opposition comes minutes after Sen. Bob Casey said he would also oppose Gorsuch.

"After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court" Schumer said, adding the Supreme Court nominee "was unable to sufficiently convince me that he’d be an independent check” on Trump.

Schumer also said that Gorsuch is "someone who almost instinctively supports the powerful over the weak."

The Senate Democrat leader also announced that Democrats will filibuster Gorsuch and force Republicans to muster 60 votes to advance him to a final up-or-down vote. “He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will be 'no' and I urge my colleagues to do the same,” he said on the Senate floor.

It was unclear as of now if Republicans would use the "nuclear option" as some have suggested in retaliation.

So one of the heads of the US intelligence committee that has allowed the CIA and FBI leadership to go Rouge doesn't want him, shove it.

Do they really believe Merrick Garland is going to rise from the dead?

FrozenGoodz's picture

At least Gorsuch is getting a vote ... 

CosmoJoe's picture

Yeah and after Ginsburg kicks the bucket, we hopefully will get a second vote!

Schumer is of those who would gladly hide a perps muslim/black identity if it helps his ANTI-American/Anti-White narrative. Belgium zio-media almost did it but Mohamed R. name slipped to the press.

We're all so fucking surprised that Schumer is voting against. Who could have ever seen this? Next thing you know ol' alligator bag face will be with Alligator Tears Schumer and be against Gorsuch too. (Pelosi, in case you missed the reference.)

Excuse me, I've got to go to the bathroom to take a Schumer. I hope it isn't as big as his huge cousin.

I'm not saying the Rs have been any better. All these assholes keep playing politics, but at least the Rs are trying to put someone up who is a strict constructionist.

Dear Democrats, 

Say hello to Mr Nuclear Option.    You used it 2013; we're going to enjoy using it on you.  FOR EVERYTHING

... let's play connect some dots ...

Self-proclaimed comedienne (((Amy Schumer))) has said that people must “rise up together” to defeat Donald Trump, adding that "his choice for the Supreme Court nomination will be “terrifying.” >>>

(((Charles Ellis "Chuck" Schumer))) was born in Brooklyn, the son of Selma (née Rosen) and Abraham Schumer. His father ran an exterminating business, and his mother was a homemaker. His family is Jewish, and he is a second cousin, once removed, of [self-proclaimed] comedian and actress Amy Schumer. His ancestors originated from the town of Chortkiv, Galicia, in what is now western Ukraine. >>>

... Q: if Gorsuch was one of (((them))) would Chuck the Fuck immediately give him his "Bracha"*?

There has to be some dirt on Schumer somewhere?

Anybody? Anyone? Bueller? 

DeadFred's picture

The deep state has the dirt on him and so that's why he dances for them like a puppet on a string.

@ Dead,

No doubt, The Deep State is aware or perhaps even sent Chucky some #PizzaGate deliveries.

Shumer is the Old Faithful geyser of Caca.

I didn't think it was possible to be worse than Harry Reid. WRONG!

This tribe member is up to his old tricks. They are so rooted in America that it is unlikely things will get better  any time soon.

Ted Cruz said Trump will get 4 picks, someone is going to leave this summer.

This is how stupid these people are.  It'll be so much easier for the Republicans to do away with the filibuster now that it will be when Ginsberg finishes dieing.  Way to go Schumer ya fucking dumbass.

How is that the govenment is filled with tribe members?  

Too late,, the damage of destroying this country is just about complete.

I'd wager a years money that the filthy fucker is a child rapist tied up with the Pizzagate/Weiner life ins files. He''s behaving like a cornered,  maggot infested  beast.  He needs to go now.

Come on President Trump, get that can of evil opened up real wide and exposed for what it is.

Rotten Jew scum.

Schumer.... The lizard left shoe.

Yes, and dual shitizen schumer would have to have another Jew to load onto the court before casting a positive vote. He can't support a white Anglo Saxon Protestant. You know, like all of the Founding Fathers.

Trump should tweet "Ted Cruz will be nominated if Schumer fillerbusters.  With a nuclear option.".  Now that would be funny.

With ducky runnning the senate? Fat chance of that.

Chuck Schumer should go out and catch Gonorrhea – it will make his tears look more authentic.  ;-)

NOOOOOOOOOOO! Think of the children!!

Bollock, butthole and mouth cancers would be much more aporopriate.

If I was Trump, I would not go nuclear option with Gorsuch. If the Dems turn down such a good person and nominee. If he is rejected I would pick the most conservative candidate who would over turn abortion law and nuclear option him and tell the Dem to go FUCK THEMSELVES.

Now you're talking.

You can't win anything by playing defense.  It's time to play offense.

Great move. He should announce that now, before the Gorsuch vote.

Time to see if the Republicans have a set of balls or not. Where they stand, they are either with us or with the Globalist.

Judaism is sociopathy made into religious doctrine.

A. Boaty's picture

Which religious doctrine do you not consider as sociopathic?

MEFOBILLS's picture

Which religious doctrine do you not consider as sociopathic?


Do your homework.  Examine the religion for psychopathic passages, and that will be your evidence.

For example, Bahai is an Islamic offshoot, and has excised all of the sociopathic elements, including abrogation.  Christianity uses supersession to overturn (complete) the old testament.  So, the pathology in the old testament cannot be used in your analysis. Sects that adhere to old testament then are fair game to point a finger at.

You can spend years doing this analysis, and you will find out that some religions are much worse than others.  Others are benign.  Some, like suffi islam, just ignore the pathologies by pretending they don't exist, and don't go down that road.  Talmudic Judaism is a festering sore.  

Do the work, a little time each day and it won't be too hard.

A. Boaty's picture

Every group has psychopaths. They can twist any doctrine to their purposes.

MEFOBILLS's picture

You are missing the point.  There is a very real distinction between doctrine that is psycopathic at is core, vs people who choose to be psychopathic.

Some religions try to push people in a way that is the opposite of psychopathic.  They try to uphold universal principles of life, and you will be hard pressed to find anything bad in their doctrine.

Islam is a real problem because psychopathy is indurated into their doctrine.  Same goes for Talmud.  In this way you can lead people astray, or you can create psychopaths using the various magick methods known to the ancient mystery religions (kaballa, zohar, hermeticism).
