Moscow Mitch and his organized crime syndicate ARE responding to the COVID crisis by accelerating the lifetime appointments of young fascist judges. With the US gubmit expecting an onslaught of lawsuits seeking damages for the gubmit’s corrupt response to the COVID pandemic these judges will assure that Moscow’s cronies are enriched by the taxpayers and exonerated for their crimes while the rest of us end up holding the bag and fall further into poverty.

No way will McConnell stop packing the courts with his political operatives. He knows he and Trump need to pull a big criminal action before they are both politically shut down. They have to have their packed courts pretend just like Chief Justice Roberts always does for them. Notice how quickly the Supreme Court approved the carnage of the election in Wisconsin resulting in many virus cases? McConnell needs to keep his desk a garbage can preventing anything that might help the sick and dying sheeple. They are both so close to total destruction of that nasty word “democracy”. They think the virus is on their side.

Mitch is a Great SENATOR
KENTUCKY can be extremely proud of his leadership amongst the din of Democrat WHINNING and Pelosi trying to ROB our treasury…

I’m curious. If so many of these judges who’ve been appointed have been deemed “Not Qualified”, could they be removed/impeached under a different administration in the future?

Just found this:

Of the 15 federal judicial impeachments in history, the most common charges were making false statements, favoritism toward litigants or special appointees, intoxication on the bench, and abuse of the contempt power.

It seems like there are an amount of reasons, depending upon how one wishes to construe them.

No surprise Mbitch’s game plan is to exploit the covid crisis to the max, in every way possible.
Where is karma when we need it?
Can we count on the people of Kentucky to do the right thing this time around?

The only way to “deal with” McConnell is to get rid of McConnell; permanently. Most of us have had more than enough of his and Trump’s toxic brew.

Hi raydelcamino:
Well, this is America where so many of the People are not able to comprehend that many of their own elected ones are screwing them over; however, this is the same America with a plethora of guns—so you just never know who will go bonkers when they realize they have been used. Or— the other option is that the CIA starts looking at the elected enemies in America and decides to clean house so the nation doesn’t totally implode…

Sorry Dude, Your beloved Republicans with the enabling of the Democrats have already robbed the treasury and gave it all to their corporate masters.

Even before the covid crisis, the Public Policy Poll had Mbitch dropping to an 18% job approval rating.
37 percent of Kentucky voters (the slack-jaw yokel contingency) said they would vote for him in 2020 (against their own best interests), while 44% said they will vote for his Democrat opponent.
Going to take some major cheating for Mbitch to get re-elected.

And we should really be paying attention to the head of the Judiciary Committee, South Carlolinian suckup and sycophant,Lindsey Graham; who is looking to lose his seat and thereby political position. HE wants to get it done before the election resuts are in.

Personally, I’m not confident a next admin could reach consensus. But, we hang on to hope. The judge stacking is why my fingers are slipping.

Another reason this country is in such trouble. No one person should have that much power. Even more than getting rid of McConnell, we need to break up that concentration of power.

So what’s new? They were demanding the same thing before the COVID panic.

Think you mean “have won”. Fascists have been in control of America longer than ive been alive, they were just more concerned about apperances in prior administrations.

wheeha! Spoken like a true lemmie-have-my-share-of-the-plunder poster bed. No argament on gobsmacking Nanny Implosie though. Let the bow string come to rest and give it another shot, why doncha.

Republican presidents always raid the treasury one way or another. If that’s not their wish they take it from the tax payers instead. The rich don’t pay taxes of any real measure so they don’t care otherwise.
