Various sources have reported that the Republican controlled senate just might make a major change to the Judiciary Committee.
Downsizing the panel would be a brilliant move for a number of reasons.
In addition to curtailing the ability of democrats to thwart the confirmation process and stroke their fragile egos by spouting rhetoric and idiocy, it would completely streamline the approval process.
Under current rules, the first person to be booted from the panel would be it’s lowest ranking member, which is Kamala Harris.
A shameless manipulator, she has only been on the committee since 2016
This creates a problem for democrats, because “if that happens, Sen. Kamala Harris of California — a high-profile Democrat who is considered a possible candidate for her party’s 2020 presidential nomination” wouldn’t have a platform to spew her rhetoric.
The rumor has already stirred hatred and calls of racism from the left.
“Not only would it be unconscionable to remove the only African-American woman from the committee, but Sen. Harris also is the most skilled questioner on the entire panel,” Brian Fallon, executive director of Demand Justice, a group that tries to get liberal judges appointed, told left wing reporters.
“Whatever options they need to consider, removing Harris should not be one of them. The backlash would be intense.”
Would it, really?
Firstly, race has absolutely nothing to do with it.
Democrats could easily agree to remove a more senior member of the committee in favor of Harris keeping her seat.
Secondly, why is Harris’ half Desi heritage so shamelessly ignored? Do democrats think that African American heritage is better than other minorities?
No one knows who came up with the downsizing idea, but if it was Mitch McConnell, many people are thrilled.
Although he has weird ties to China through his wife and is not the most popular republican senator, he has recently shown himself to be extremely crafty in dealing with liberals in congress.
He’s also apparently fully backing President Trump’s agenda, which is extremely wise.
