“WHY DO WE HAVE TWO PARTIES AGAIN?”
Faced with the opportunity to reject a bureaucrat who refused to prosecute corporate lawlessness, who engaged in a fascist program of civil asset forfeiture (to the tune of $1 billion a year), who continues to believe discrimination against limited government advocates is no big deal and who has explicitly stated her intention to ignore the U.S. Constitution moving forward … the GOP instead confirmed this nominee.
We’re talking, of course, about Loretta Lynch – who is now the top prosecutor in America thanks to the “GOP-controlled” U.S. Senate.
Liberal “Republicans” supporting Lynch’s nomination included Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Thad Cochran of Mississippi (remember his 2014 primary?), Susan Collins of Maine, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Rob Portman of Ohio.
Oh, and of course U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina … which was no shock.
Their excuse? That Lynch would be an improvement over the current lawless attorney general, Eric Holder.
That’s insane. Lynch is every bit as bad as Holder … even worse because the GOP knows up front just how lawless she’s going to be.
Correctly opposing Lynch’s nomination? U.S. Senators Rand Paul and Marco Rubio – two announced candidates for the “Republican” presidential nomination.
Ted Cruz – another U.S. Senator who is seeking the presidency – missed the final vote on Lynch’s confirmation, although to his credit he was among the most outspoken opponents of her nomination.
Frankly, we’re not surprised “Republicans” in Washington have rolled over for Obama (again). It is … quite literally … all the party is good for. Which makes you wonder … why do we have two parties again?
Oh right … the myth of “polarization.”
