Conservative Republican Senator Ted Cruz successfully blocked a resolution honoring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
He opposed “partisan” language that noted her dying wish was that her successor wouldn’t be chosen until after the 2021 presidential inauguration.
RBG died Friday night, igniting a firestorm of controversy over who would replace her and take the seat she once occupied on the Supreme Court of the United States. Democrats are trying to overthrow President Donald J. Trump’s Constitutional power and authority to replace the controversial Supreme Court Justice, who was a far-left activist judge, with his pick, who he has said is a woman, and is a Constitutional expert.
NOT BIPARISIAN- SO NO GO
Schumer, of course, tried to exploit RBG’s death.
“I object to the resolution that should have been bipartisan following a tradition, unfortunately, the Democrat leader put forth a resolution adding as a statement that justice should not be filled until a new President is installed. That is of course is not the standard. Members of the judiciary appoints their own successor. A nomination is made by the President and confirmed by Senate,” Cruz said.
RBG was known for her activism and manipulations of lawmakers to push her feminist agenda,most notably around the issues of abortion, siding most often with Planned Parenthood and far left activists.
Trump’s nominee is mostly a pro-life woman, signaling to the left a devastating culture shift which they do not appear please to embrace, based upon the public comments of Democrat leaders.
Far left radical Never Trump feminist resistance member Senator Chuck Schumer introduced the resolution, and Cruz smacked it down.
Cruz was trolling Schumer:
Local Texas News reported on the matter:
“A ceremonial resolution honoring the life of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg failed in the Senate on Tuesday after U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz objected to language his Democratic counterparts added noting her dying wish that a successor not be chosen until after the presidential inauguration early next year.
The war of words on the Senate floor is likely a preamble to a coming brawl to replace Ginsburg. The liberal justice died Friday, leaving a vacancy that, if filled by a conservative, could have sweeping ramifications on several American policies and civil liberties.
“Unfortunately, the Democratic leader has put forth an amendment to turn that bipartisan resolution into a partisan resolution,” Cruz said in his floor remarks, referring to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.”
“Specifically, the Democratic leader wants to add a statement that Justice Ginsburg’s position should not be filled until a new president is installed, purportedly based on a comment Justice Ginsburg made to family members shortly before she passed.
“That, of course, is not the standard,” he added. “Under the Constitution, members of the judiciary do not appoint their own successors.”
Schumer took to the floor immediately after Cruz spoke, stating that he believed “Justice Ginsburg would easily see through the legal sophistry” of Cruz’s argument. He said Cruz turned the late justice’s “dying words” against her, which Schumer said is “so, so beneath the dignity of this body. I do not modify.”
Cruz then objected to the resolution, and it did not pass.
