Tantrum-Throwing Democrats Say Supreme Court is Now “Illegitimate”

Democrats have been saying for two years that President Trump is an “illegitimate” president for one crazy reason or another, and now they’re ready to throw that label at the nation’s high court. Angry over their failed attempt to railroad Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats and other left-wing agitators are telling anyone who will listen that the Supreme Court’s legitimacy is now in question.

“Confirming Brett Kavanaugh in the face of credible allegations of sexual assault that were not thoroughly investigated, and his belligerent, partisan performance in last Thursday’s hearing undermines the legitimacy of the Supreme Court,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the woman largely responsible for the circus that these hearings turned into.

“The damage done today will be enduring — to the United States Supreme Court and to our country,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

Ahead of the vote, NY Times columnist Paul Krugman said: “Kavanaugh may yet be confirmed, but this will make the court fundamentally illegitimate.”

At Slate, Mark Joseph Stern wrote: “As soon as Kavanaugh takes the oath, he will plunge the Supreme Court into a legitimacy crisis that could weaken its power over the long term. This crisis will become particularly acute if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency but find their reforms stymied by a reactionary judiciary.”

You have to really read that twice to appreciate its full idiocy. The Supreme Court’s legitimacy, Stern seems to argue, is based on how much of the Democrat agenda it affirms. How illuminating!

David Faris at BuzzFeed suddenly thinks it’s time for Republicans and Democrats to “agree on a broad compromise – a constitutional amendment that eliminates lifetime tenure for the Supreme Court, with service capped at 18 years.”*

*Subject to abolishment the second a Democrat president succeeds in putting a liberal majority on the bench, we’re sure.

Much of this handwringing is based on a faulty premise: That Americans NOW view the Supreme Court as a larger-than-life, apolitical institution that guides and interprets our Constitution with the wisdom lacking in the other two branches of government. That just isn’t the case, and it hasn’t been for a very long time. You’d have to be very naïve to look at all of those 5-4 decisions throughout the last five or ten years and think, “Wow, such a coincidence that it always seems to fall along party lines…” Are we really that dumb, as a nation? No.

What these liberals really mean is that THEY will now view the Supreme Court as illegitimate because THEY no longer have an ideological advantage. Much as they view the Electoral College as illegitimate because THEY keep getting the short end of the stick. This is just more partisan whining, dressed up to look like sober political analysis.

What do you think?

  1. I think that’s GREAT! Now, let’s throw out Kagen, Sotomayor, and Ginsberg, and we will have a fully legitimate court of Constitutionalists!!!

    • Agreed…this insanity with the left is so over the top and just down right WRONG! CONGRATS JUDGE KAVANAUGH AND MAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • You know what illegitimate is? It s the shameful way these asinine democRATS have handled this process. They are all acting like snotty nose little children because they did not get their way. And their lemmings are following along in lock step.

  2. Hey that would be great. Get rid of the three “old” ladies and then we would indeed have a true constitutional justice system that has been lacking for quite a number of years. Thank GOD for Kavanaugh.

  3. I think the Dims are sore losers! And, when the FBI says it found NO evidence to prove the allegations, why all of a sudden they don’t believe it? They’ve spent 2 YEARS telling us that the FBI wouldn’t lie, or pull illegal stunts. Now all of a sudden, they don’t believe the FBI. Because they didn’t find the evidence the Dims wanted.

  4. Th liberal dem boodsucking scum will not stop until the civil war starts, will they?
    Very well that will do, when it starts, we will leave no, liberal ersatz life forms

  5. Funny how commie democrats only think the Supreme Court will somehow be “legitimate” only if it were packed with left-wing party hacks who’d rule in “social justice” instead of the Constitution.

    • The democrats often act like spoiled children and are now the poster children for term limits. Finstien should be among the first to retire before she further disgraces herself.Senator schumer continues to disgrace himself and should establish his residence in a nursing home NOW!

  6. I think the democrats have become the party of spoiled brats. They have not earned the right to complain after what obama has done. Well guess what democrats Trump won the election and gets to make any call he wants. Like the Supreme court justices even if you don’t like them. It’s his call and not your’s. These antic’s the democrat’s pull is nothing short of treason.

    • Many of the loudest mouths are members of the Baby boomer population. They have been whiners from the first day of kindergarten and culminated in the Hippies, who produced the yuppies who actually prospered while raising their younger siblings. The Yuppies than produced kids and repeated same the mistakes the Hippies parents made. That post WW 2 generation saved the world. However those men left the education of their sons to Dr Spock and their doting moms. They told their kids that the sun shone out of their butts and behold the all but worthless Milennials whose genetic offerings include Hogg and safe space snoflakes were the woeful results.God save us all when Alyssa Milano and those like her go into the Labor and Delivery Room,

  7. I think these Dms are VILKE> they are Pyromaniacs they start the fire then blame it on someone else. Feinstein is the cause and the criminal. can they get any worse?

  8. So just so we all understand this correctly – The democrats “RIGGED” candidate Hillary Clinton lost so President Trump is illegitimate. Judge Kavanugh was NOT found guilty of tANY of he bogus accusations brought by a bunch of left wing loon democrats so he is also illegitimate. So basically ANY/EVERY time the left wing loons don’t get their way – the outcome is illegitimate? Gotcha

  10. Stupid is as Stupid does the leftists are Stupid more than rocks or excrement.
    Sorry for including rocks and excrement as neither of them have done anything
    as heinous as those LIBerals.

  11. Too bad about them! If all they can do is to throw hissy fits, remember that when we vote next month! Vote for anyone with an “R” next to their name! It is time for a Red wave!

  12. I think it’s time to investigate the legitimacy of Elana Kagan. Previous articles accused her of covering up 0bummer’s qualifications, a legitimate birth certificate, foreign exchange student in college, and more. Her appointment was a reward for following along with the illegitimate presidency of the Bummer!

  13. Supreme Court is all that’s left if this insane Left gets its way
    and maybe even that may go if we are not careful the only good leftists
    are those in prison or hanging for treason.

  14. Amen finally a conservative court ,,, it’s been a liberal court for 55 years so let’s try conservertive values for a while

  15. All good comments I hope that the majority of the people of this great country think the same.Every country has its class of people with strudel in the noodle.

  16. Feinstein, Blumenthal, Krugman and Stern. What a lineup! First, they try to convict Kavanaugh of a 36-year-old crime on nothing more than the uncorroborated accusation of an arguably unreliable complainant. They were happy to trash the presumption of innocence because the accused is a white man of impeccable reputation, nominated by a Republican president. When that fails, they try to delegitimize the Supreme Court itself.
    It is a hallmark of fascism wrongfully to accuse political enemies of crimes, try them in kangaroo courts and consign them to oblivion. The above four Americans should be ashamed that the lesson they took from the Jewish experience of the 20th Century was how to utilize fascist techniques to destroy people of opposing political views.

  17. The FBI or someone posted Dr. Ford’s husbands signed testimony from his interview with the FBI. It discussed the 2012 interview and his discussion with his wife about the incident. He was under oath and did not want to lie. What he refused or did not verify was that the meeting with the therapist did not come about over the second door of their house. Photo proof shows a front door on their house in 2011. So the whole premise that she used to expose Kavanaugh was a lie. She got telling a lie again to the FBI about this meeting with the Psych. Wow!!!

  18. Indeed, the SCOTUS is now immune to illegitimate left wing, liberal decisions which benefit big government and its crony politicians

  19. THE ENTIRE *DEM* PARTY IS *ILLEGITIMATE* > ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THEY HAVE ALL BEEN *HORRIBLY EXPOSED* AS *SUBVERSIVE TREASONOUS SEDITIOUS ANARCHISTS* > MANY OF WHOM ARE GOING TO PRISON!! Check Facts ACLJ Law Firm (D.C.) Mr. Jay Sekulow Chief Counsel

  20. In Feb. 2015 Justice Ginsberg was shown falling asleep at the State of the Union address. She said she was drinking wine at dinner & that she was NOT 100% sober. The SC is NOT shown on TV usually during their deliberation on any cases, SO just how many times did she fall asleep & not hear the arguments of a case & voted on it anyway.
    If an accusation can be made about Kavanaugh from 36 years ago with NO collaboration, NO credible
    witnesses, No recall of the whereabouts & many other NO RECALLING of important facts, then an allegation of Ginsberg being drunk at SC hearings can be made & BELIEVED as she admitted to that fact about her sleeping at the State of the Union.
    We need an FBI investigation into that.

  21. WHY DON’T WE ELECT HILLARY AND BILL AGAIN SO THAT WE CAN HAVE COME STAINS ON THE DRESSES OF HIS FEMALE VISITORS AND HILLARY CAN MUNCH THE MUFFS OF THE BIMBOS BILL DOESN’T BANG. WE CAN THEN APPOINT CHELSEA TO THE COURT OF SUPREME UGLY IDIOTS, AND LET HER HUSBAND BAIL OUT HIS FELON FATHER.

  22. Never has someone made such a PERFECT/IMPERFECT title. If we could just simply GET RID OF EVERY SINGLE BULLSHIT TANTRUM-THROWING dumbocratic LEGISLATOR and elect all new dumbocratic ones, ones whom HAVE ACTUALLY READ THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INSTEAD OF mein kampf WE MIGHT HAVE A SOMEWHAT NORMAL GOVERNMENT.

  23. The supreme court is more legitimate now than it has been in a very long time. The left wing socialist democraps are the ones that are illegitimate. Let’s do away with all of them.

  24. The Democrats. Just keep pushing and they will lose more and more then they ever Dreamed of; I have “No Sympathy” for people who can’t see and admit they are wrong; especially those who can’t accept the Facts of an Election they lost; I think it is time to declare the Democratic Party Mentality I’ll and Remove them all as,people like this Party do not belong in Politics or anywhere as they are Direct threat to this Nation and also to National Security!

  25. they liked it just fine when it was packed with radical COMMUNISTS who have been totally DESTROYING the rule of law in America & legislating from the BENCH.
    WELL ITS OUR TURN NOW
    SERVES THEM ALL RIGHT FOR MURDERING JUSTICE SCALIA..
    Kavanaugh better be careful or he will die mysteriously with no autopsy even tho he is perfectly HEALTHY just like Justice Scalia & it was all covered up
    even ginsberg KNEW they assassinated Scalia & she was PISSED

  26. What we have viewed in the past two years borders on the promotion of anarchy/violence by the Dem. Party, in the form congresswoman Maxine Water,Hillary Clinton(just this week) and ex.attorney general, Eric Holder.

    What I really think their possible plan is to hopefully, provoke a number of the( miniscule in number) apt Right to become violent toward The Dems. Protesters right before the Nov. Elections……Should It occur, Dems and their News Accomplice s would shout it 247 that Pres. Trump unleashed his Attack Dogs! It is my hope that anyone in the middle, or to the right of center, not fall for their(Dems.) Antics and trap…..but, rather vote.

  27. Until They start arresting these demrats for their crimes they are going to continue pushing the envelope ,they think they are invincible we need to show then they are not start arresting them!!!!

  28. The only thing the Democrats concerned are with, is did the FBI investigate and verify all of the nonsense they invented and made up,how many times must they be informed that the FBI does not investigate ever false claim that they come up with,they do back ground checks and investigate crimes,there has been no crime commited by Kavanaugh or Trump,they are not supposed to look for crimes unless there are reason to do so,the FBI is under authority of the white house,not the democratic party,congress over see’s the DOJ and FBI but does not tell them how to perform their job,they have written rules and regulation for that,and as long as they don’t transgress those rules,no one will demand accountability.

  29. How evil can the Democrats get?! THEY are the ones damaging America… and they can’t even understand that. I guess to become a member of their party one has to score below a certain level of IQ. Satan must be smiling with the ridiculous comments coming out of their mouths recently.

  30. It seems everything in THE USA is illegal according to dumbocrat legislators when in reality EVERYTHING IN THE USA IS LEGAL EXCEPT THE SHITHEAD dumbocratic LEGISLATORS! These idiot shithead dumbocrat legislators remind me of the people who are always saying everyone else but them is CRAZY EVERYONE, when in reality just they are crazy.

  31. I am beginning to think that the Democrats and CNN are in competition with each other to see who can tell the most & biggest LIES FAKE FALSE PROPAGANDA HYPE so called news ?

  32. The democrats say if you don’t agree with them you are wrong. They are chicken shits. We all must realize that the democrats and the lying media will never work with President Trump or any other republican, and by their refusal they are refusing to do anything for our country or its citizens. Vote republican.

  33. Democrats plan on increasing the number of Justices on the court once they get power again. Trump should take their suggestion and increase the court to 15 members and appoint 6 more conservatives, while we have the power, and beat the democrats at their own game.

  34. We need to stop calling these Communists Democrats, the only thing that will make them Democrats is the Election that gives them the whole Farm; after that they will gladly refer to themselves as what they are, “Communists”.

  35. I think these poor, misunderstood Dems should just take their football and go home and such their thumbs and whine. That’s about all they are good for.

  36. I am so sorry I can’t put in print the words I have for the Democratic Party. All I can say is Grow Up You let your minds develop, take deep breaths as it is apparent to the masses you are oxygen deprived and brain dead. Every single one of you. If I had a family member in the Democratic Party I would disown them.
