Dems Press GOP To Approve Obama’s Supreme Court Pick … To Stop Global Warming

DNC Video - Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman SchultzDemocratic lawmakers released a video allegedly “setting the record straight” on global warming and sharply criticizing Republicans for pledging to block Supreme Court nominees put forward by President Barack Obama.

Democrats want Republicans to approve a Supreme Court nominee who supports the power plant regulation expected to ruin economies of some conservative states and raise electricity prices for even more — all in the name of global warming.

“We simply can’t afford for our nation’s highest court to be crippled,” Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said in the video released Sunday. She’s followed up by a slew of Democratic lawmakers telling Senate Republicans to “do your job.”

The video contains clips of Republican presidential candidates dismissing claims humans are driving catastrophic global warming.

“I’m not a believer in climate change,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says in the video. Trump is followed up by Republican candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz saying “satellite data show there’s been no warming whatsoever.”

“I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it,” Republican candidate Sen. Marco Rubio says in the video.

The death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia has given Obama the opportunity to nominate a third judge to the high court, but Republicans have pledged to block any nomination put forward until after the 2016 election.

    So the “Stakes have never been higher”? We need to STOP a “Global Warming” that stopped twenty years ago?

    The Democrats are so pathetic . No wonder Trump is popular . Americans are fed up with the politically correct wimps who claim to represent most of the population while robbing them .
    The USA would not exist today if socialists
    of Bernie Saunders ilk were around in the beginning . Clinton is so desperate .

    The drive to install a new Supreme Court justice who would support Obama’s Clean Power Plan shows just how far our system has deteriorated from the way is it intended to operated. Justices are supposed to be appointed to give sound interpretations of the Constitution and the law. In case where the words could legitimately be interpreted more than one way, if the intent of authors is known then that should be the determining factor.

    The way the democrats are running it now, a Supreme Court position is just another political office. This destroys the system of check and balances.

    This exactly.

    Liberal leftists view the courts as a TOOL – [i]a super legislature[/i] – to override legislative decisions (laws) they don’t like and to create new laws they wish for but cannot achieve through legitimate Constitutional means.

    As always with the left, the ends justify the means. Just as short-sighted, they [i]assume[/i] such Constitutional abuses could never be turned against them in a state without principles.

    The Anti – Democracy Party (Democrats) are pandering to hedge fund billionaires because they could never muster the cash to present their ideas to the public with out it . Extreme green is the price .
    Think of all the sure wins you could rack up by knowing which companies are the next pigs at the trough .

    Look at the early investors of the current failing batch and follow the recipe.
    Doesn’t Bernie Sanders provide a wonderful raging smoke screen of indignation for Hillary ?
    ELECTION
    With a combined public service life of about 70 years Hillary and Bernie types are the problem not the solution .
    They were inside the tank as it rumbled over the economy , massive job outsourcing
    bank failures , tricked up wars etc etc .

    Yeah here are the White House keys . Dream on .
