Will Schumer Help Elect GOP Senators?

The leak of the two-month-old draft of a possible Supreme Court decision has set Democrats and the leftwing media into a political frenzy.  Since such drafts go through constant revisions, they are responding to a pig in the poke.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the podium to vent his staged rage at the Republicans.  He has promised that he will force a vote on legislation that would codify abortion into law.

Of course, we have this situation today because Congress never took responsibility to deal with abortion, as it should have.  The ball was always in Congress’ court.  That was one of the major reasons the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has been so controversial.  The Supreme Court was creating laws rather than passing constitutional judgment on laws.  It was one of the reasons that even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg feared Roe v. Wade would be overturned.  She did not believe it was a well-founded decision – and she said so many times.

Overturning Roe v. Wade does NOT make abortions illegal – as much of the public has been misled to believe.  It just means that it is up to the states to regulate in the absence of federal law – and up to Congress to pass such a law that the Supreme Court could – just could – address its constitutionality.

The prospective decision will NOT impact on any other cases as the fearmongers on the left are alleging.   They seem to believe that overturning Roe v. Wade is not sufficient to build an electoral consensus for the 2022 midterm elections.

Enacting a law to protect abortion is exactly what Schumer is proposing.  The problem is that it is very, very unlikely that Congress will pass federal legislation on abortion – and certainly not unless the filibuster is abandoned.

Schumer’s strategy – as he openly admitted – was to force every senator to take a stand – a stand that could then be judged by the voting public in November.  Schumer made it clear that the country could then see who is for abortion and who is against it.

Schumer’s assumption is that all – or at least most – Republicans will vote against the abortion bill and his Democrats will vote for it.  He sees that as a big campaign win for the donkey team. 

But is it?

What about Democrat senators in red states where overturning Roe v. Wade is arguably popular – states currently passing anti-abortion legislation.  Two cases come to mind – Senator Mark Kelly in Arizona and Senator Raphael Warnock in Georgia.  Arizona is among the states that have passed or will soon pass abortion restrictions laws.  Warnock faces a large pro-life constituency in the Peach State – a land with a lot of fundamentalist Baptists.  Voting for a law to protect abortion could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back in terms of Kelly and Warnock re-elections – and that could be enough to give the GOP control of the Senate.

In promising a vote on abortion, Schumer is using his New York-oriented brain – thinking that all Democrats are as radical as his local variety.  He seems to see a “yes” vote on abortion as universally good for Democrats and universally bad for Republicans.   That may not be the case.  I suspect that several Democrat senators groaned when they heard Schumer’s announcement. 

Promising legislative protection for abortion-on-demand has a lot of House members groaning alongside their Senate colleagues.  Not everyone on the Democrat side wants to put the name (and seat) on the line over abortion.

If Kelly and Warnock lose their re-election bids, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell should send a thank you note to Schumer.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. Freedom is not always what yhe individual would like it to be nor does it satisfy everyone. It is predicated on the satisfaction of the majority. When government officials and beauracracies make laws by circumventing the population nobody is satisfied. When the president circumvents congress we have a monarchy. These are not the ideals of a feedom loving America. The government via the constitution is intended to represent the people. It is not intended to ride rough shod over the people’s will. Unfortunately this is exactly what we have in government today. We see the inevitable results of when the rule of law is ignored. When one group doesn’t want to accept the majority they threaten riot cry and throw tantrums. Much like we’re seeing right now. The left is throwing away reason and practical governance and losing all credibility with their win at all cost ideology. The country is paying a very high price for this infantile approach and this behavior can no longer be tolerated. The time has come for reason and logic to prevail once again. The leftist leadership must take responsibility for their incitement of their base. Protest is a necessary part of feedom but riots and violence is nothing more than criminal behavior and should not be tolerated.
    God Bless America

    • As I see it The Republican Party has a big problem WHY! There are more Democrats than Republicans. If the the national polls are correct and 60% to 63% of Americans think Abortions should should be legal a large percentage of them will be VOTING Democrat across the board. The Republican party could be facing a major defeat at the ballot box. Put that together with insurrection that place on January 6 which was a major attack on our constitutional rights, the voters will over look inflation and concentrate more on the right of privacy and our Constitution and the rights of women. Republicans should be concerned because of the political fire Republicans have started. America is at a cross road and everyone is now very angry. When the majority has been documented as Democrats you have a problem.

      The incitement you are referring to is the fact the Democrats will be having a massive get out the vote and making sure that more than 81 million Biden voters are surpass in this fall election. I believe they will succeed.
      May God protect our Great Country

      • Sorry Allen but there was no insurrection on January 6th. As for the right to privacy, I haven’t seen any major rallies protesting the NSA illegally collecting information on all Americans. I haven’t seen any rallies at all protesting the CDC using cell phone date to track Americans to see if they were complying with its dictates. No rallies complaining about the USPS surveiling Americans. Nothing in the Constitution authorizes any one to murder babies nor does it authorize the federal government to demand abortion be allowed nationwide.

        • When you threaten to kill the Vice President if he did not overturn a certified election and storm and/or break into the halls of congress and threaten elected officials to do the same that is the legal definition of an insurrection and there are people now going to jail for actions.

          Most religions today believe a fetus does not have a soul till about 90 to 120 days. Example: Muslim 120 days, Talmud 13 weeks and in the Middle Ages Catholic theologians taught that ensoulment occurred about 2 to 3 months after conception. There is nothing in the Constitution prevents abortions. Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. The only law dealing with abortion was the Hyde Amendment which was a legislative provision barring the use of federal funds to pay for abortion, except to save the life of the woman, or if the pregnancy arises from incest or rape.

          The point I’m making is only 22% according to the polls believe abortion should illegal in all circumstances. The issue is not about Pro-choice or Pro-life it’s about Pro-Abortion or Anti-Abortion.

          Republicans now may be facing a major defeat this fall. Should the Supreme Court delay its decision until after the election or has the damage already been done?

      • More NWO Marxists (democrats) then Republicans huh? You mean like in Ohio where there where 500,000 Republicans voted in Tuesday’s primary to the NWO Marxist’s 200,000? It doesn’t matter how many claim to be communists, It only matters how many vote…..And from now on the commies will not be able to do what they did in PA in 2020 where they kept counting votes that came in after the poles closed and Trump was ahead. ,,,, They just kept accepting ballots and “counting” until BRANDON won.

        Here are the facts, snowflake. There is no doubt that all over the country people are leaving the communist part and registering as independents or Republicans…..Just getting gasoline on the way to vote will make you vote Republican. Brandon has milk over 3 bucks a gallon and going up. Sorry Bunky. The Green Wokies are trying to make all of We the People’s abortions retroactive by starving us to death,

        Face it Homes,
        PRESIDENT TRUMP 2024
        Take America back,,,,and keep it this time.

  2. I think between Schumer and Not all there Biden, they will help elect all the GOP candidates. Look how good a job they did the primaries. Keep those big mouths flapping and we will win EVERYTHING. The person you had leak the Scotus report will be found, and you will have even more problems. We all know it was a damn Liberal probably one you all paid off. No one could put together that many protests and just found out the night before. It was planned and they knew the day it would drop. We are not stupid out here. You are.

  3. My biggest concern of the upcoming November election and the 2024 election is the Democratic Marxist Socialist Party’s blatantly obvious ability to cheat to win elections. The Democrats and their back pocket main stream media repeatedly declare that there is zero evidence to support that claim.
    Here’s some information from the past elections that should minimally make you scratch your head and ask questions:

    – How did Obama win his second term in 2012, when in the 2010 elections the Democrats lost over 1034 political seats. This was the biggest loss of political seats in U.S history, yet Obama wins 2012?! How is that possible.

    – In the 2020 election, hundred of thousands of mail in ballot’s had only Biden’s box checked off and no other votes checked. Moreover, how can a mail in ballot not have any folds in the form to place it into the envelope. There should be at least two folds to allow the ballot to fit into the envelope and thousands of ballots were submitted this way.

    – There is video of the locked drop boxes reveal individuals submitting multiple ballots into the drop boxes, which is illegal.

    – According to the election votes counted, we’re to believe that O’biden received 81-million votes, which was more than Obama and more votes than any other President in U.S history. Does anyone seriously believe that was a legitimate election?!

    These are just a few questions, but I am certain there’s a lot more questions about the stolen 2020 election.
