Schumer Goes to War with the Supreme Court Over Abortion

Schumer Goes to War with the Supreme Court Over Abortion

“For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Sen Schumer said, while remaining silent when Pres Trump attacked Justices Sotomayor & Ginsberg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes.”

https://twitter.com/SenSchumer/status/1235280512375312384?s=20

Senate Majority Leader Schumer picked a fight with the Supreme Court Wednesday.

While speaking at a pro-abortion event, Sen. Schumer threatened Justices Gorsuch an Kavanaugh, saying, “you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions!”

That video here:

Which prompted Chief Justice Roberts to respond thusly:

Rather than leaving well enough alone, a spokesman from Schumer’s office accused Justice Roberts of taking Schumer’s remarks out of context (though I’m not sure how they figure that, they were plain enough), and of “following the right wing” in the process.

“You won’t know what hit you,” seems obvious enough especially as the SCOTUS is immune (mostly) from being outed through the course of an election. Any opportunity to activate the young, abortion-happy crowd recently angered by an 11th hour Biden resurgence, I suppose.

Will Roberts figure out that he needs to quit playing patsy with the Democrats?

Will Roberts figure out that making decisions like he did on Obamacare will just invite more intimidation?

If Roberts were to keep faithful to the Constitution he might eventually find out that SCOTUS isn’t under attack constantly by elected Democrats and the Media.

    In rare rebuke, Chief Justice Roberts slams Schumer for ‘threatening’ comments

    There are no rules for the left, only untried pathways to power.

    This is intolerable.

    Katie Pavilch has the background. Of course Schumer was threatening the Justices over the ultimate leftwing sacrament, abortion.

    And he’s threatening them just before they rule on an abortion issue, specifically, whether it is constitutional for states to require abortionists to have privileges at a hospital, and other safety requirements.

    Update: It’s worse than first reported.

    Mike Davis @mrddmia

    It’s even worse than first reported. Comments on Gorsuch Kavanaugh

    @SenSchumer added:

    “You won’t know what hit you, if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

      Harrumph!

      “…Schumer’s office accused Justice Roberts of taking Schumer’s remarks out of context … and of “following the right wing” in the process.”

      Yes, that Constitution with its Amendments the the Founders established is extremely “right wing” Chuckie…….

        Chuckie is Dirty!

        Time to take him out of the public eye and out of Congress.

        He and his fellow DEMS have TAKEN Million$ in Planned Parenthood money over the years!!!!!!!!

        https://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/pacgot.php?cmte=C00314617&cycle=2016

        Check out all the election year stats there.
        Almost zero going to the GOP, almost 100% going to DEMS.

        House
        Total to Democrats: $519,485
        Total to Republicans: $5,000

        Such complete and utter bullshit for them to claim that Schumer’s words were taken “out of context.” Schumer threatened Gorsuch and Kavanaugh by name, and said that they would “pay the price.” He also said that “You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

        The unnamed Republican lawmakers (the people that Scummy Schumer is now trying to pretend that his statements were directed at) don’t write Supreme Court decisions. Kavanaugh and Gorsuch do. THAT’S the context.

        Schumer’s lame attempt at deflection is not going to work. Schumer directly and explicitly threatened two Supreme Court justices because he doesn’t like the way they vote in abortion cases before the court. Schumer’s threats are despicable and dangerous, and he should be expelled from the senate for this disgraceful conduct.

          notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Observer. | March 5, 2020 at 2:23 pm

          Schumer’s overt and extreme threats are the equivalent of death threats imo……

    ———————
    Don’t bet on it.

The video showing the self-satisfied look that crosses Schumers face is quite revealing. He knows exactly what he’s done; a call for violent action.

“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.”

    alaskabob in reply to Tiki. | March 4, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    Notice it didn’t target soy-boy Roberts. This is an open threat against the SCOTUS. I would remind Senator Schumer that now that he has called for retribution he will inherit the whirlwind should it happen.

      artichoke in reply to alaskabob. | March 4, 2020 at 9:19 pm

      I suspect it was indirectly targeted at Roberts. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh won’t likely change their votes, but Roberts is the man who said Obamacare is a tax but it is not a tax.

        Milhouse in reply to artichoke. | March 4, 2020 at 11:12 pm

        He didn’t say it was a tax and not a tax. He said unequivocally that it was a tax, and he explained exactly why.

        Observer in reply to artichoke. | March 5, 2020 at 2:48 pm

        Yes, it was. Roberts is the only justice whose vote is susceptible to being changed here. The lefty justices won’t vote to uphold any law that restricts abortion rights. Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh have all taken the position that the states should be free to impose reasonable restrictions. That leaves Roberts as the deciding vote. Roberts, who hates any suggestion that “his” court is political, is the one Schumer is really trying to influence here.

Chuck You is a not very bright barbarian.

    MajorWood in reply to Comanche Voter. | March 5, 2020 at 11:52 am

    It isn’t a matter or being bright or not. It is an outright admission that someone told him to do “something” and outright threats is all that he has left. It is the sad desperate act of someone who knows that they have nothing left. I would normally say that this is perfect material for a Hitler Downfall parody, but I am not sure that this can be improved on.

I’d take you don’t know what hit you meant packing the court.

    McGehee in reply to rhhardin. | March 4, 2020 at 7:14 pm

    Given the history of the Democrats’ various paramilitary wings over the centuries, I wouldn’t be that generous. He’s calling for Kavanaugh and Gorsuch to be harassed by outrage mobs.

    iconotastic in reply to rhhardin. | March 4, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    I don’t think so. This was a personal threat to the individual justices, not to the institution. Chuckle knows exactly what he is doing—threatening the justices with retribution by Democrat brownshirts.

Though unmentioned, Schumer’s threat against Gorsuch and Kavanaugh would unleash an angry Twitter barrage the likes of which the Internet has never seen.

    Or, alternatively, some Socialist-Democrat crazy faithful members to decide if it was good enough for the Family Research Council and the GOP Baseball team practice, it should be good enough for Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

    rabidfox in reply to DouglasJBender. | March 5, 2020 at 10:15 am

    The thing about an internet barrage is that the target has to give a damn about what the denizens of the internet think. There is no way that the tweets can hurt a SCOTUS justice.

Suggesting that a justice recuse themselves is not an attack, even when done in an extrajudicial manner.

      MattMusson in reply to gonzotx. | March 5, 2020 at 8:11 am

      Suggesting a Justice Recuse because you don’t like the way they will vote is Un-American. But, it is the Democrat way.

      Democrats have moved from “Abortion: Legal, Safe and Rare”

      to “Abortion: Legal”

    RodFC in reply to RodFC. | March 4, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    Uh guys I’m talking about Trump’s request for Sotmayor and RGB to recuse themselves.

    Schumer did not suggest that Justices recuse themselves. He just threatened thme outright.

You mean like, with a pillow?

This isn’t just about abortion. schumer knew he would draw the rebuke from CJR. schumer’s plan all along was to cry “BIAS” from the SCOTUS, in an effort to delegitimize all future rulings that are adverse to the left. democrats already pick and choose which laws they will or will not follow (immigration), this is an attempt to give them cover to ignore the SCOTUS, especially after rgb is replaced. The democrats are losing on every front and they know it. Get ready for their scorched earth campaign.

“By any means necessary.” say the left. Violence is all they have left as weapons.

And the Democrats accuse the Republicans of utilizing “dog whistles” while they use bullhorns.

Steelbutterfly | March 4, 2020 at 7:17 pm

Sorry, but after the horrendous actions of a Bernie follower at a baseball field full of Republican congress members, I’d say this is out of bounds. Ask Steve Scalise, or better yet, his wife, what they think about this kind of rhetoric. As a leader in the Democratic party, Schumer should choose his words with far more care.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to Steelbutterfly. | March 4, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    He did choose his words very carefully. He intends for violence to occur against anyone who disagrees with him, and is calling for it.

    Subotai Bahadur

      Does he, in theory, have any legal exposure for what he said or, hypothetically, would he have any if violence were actually to occur?

        artichoke in reply to jb4. | March 4, 2020 at 9:25 pm

        I believe he has the same legal exposure you or I would have if we threatened SCOTUS or its members. And given his powerful position, his threat is more credible, not “letting off steam”.

        I do not believe this comment is protected by the “speech and debate” clause, because he was not on the Senate floor when he said it.

        Milhouse in reply to jb4. | March 4, 2020 at 10:59 pm

        No, he does not. Incitement means speech that is both (1) intended and (2) likely, to cause the listener to (3) immediately commit a crime. All three elements are necessary.

        Basically it’s speech that turns its audience temporarily into robots with no control over their own actions, such as when whipping up a mob’s emotions and turning them on someone, whereupon they harm that person without first having taken time to think it over and make their own decision.

You don’t suppose that Schmuck Schumer thinks that his unilaterally vapid spew of vomit, into the wind, in any manner might impair any justice?

Schmuck Schumer is NOT a party in interest in the matter before the court, lacks standing and, given his wanton, derelict and incredulous attempt to interfere in a legal matter beyond his reach should be roundly censored, castigated and removed from the Senate for his feckless disparagement of the judicial system.

He should be censured

“Schmuck” Schumer — a perfect representation of contemporary Dhimmi-crat apparatchiks’ infantile, obnoxious, totalitarian and thuggish antics, when they are denied the political power which they believe they are entitled to wield.

What do you think the reaction would be if I made this public threat as a member of the D.C. Bar; not a U.S. Senator/Minority Leader whose family is from the Ukraine?

SeekingRationalThought | March 4, 2020 at 8:05 pm

Is Schumer really so stupid that he can’t tell the difference between a a criticism and a threat? No, he isn’t. But he thinks you are. If you don’t take political action to do something about it, you deserve the corruption of Schumer and the Swamp. Donate to, and work for, Republican Senate candidates this year. If we elect enough of them, even the shameless and corrupt Democrat Senators will see the need to do something about Schumer. Without his minority leader job, he is nothing but a disgusting joke.

Even many of the left wing media talking heads aren’t supporting Chuck on this one.

Schumer Spox New Statement Claims They Were Talking About Senate GOP Not Justices

Um, sure, when you specifically call out Gorsuch and Kavanaugh and threaten them, you obviously are talking about the Senate, sure.

Has anyone seen RBG recently? This statement may have been sent as a warning to potential nominees rather than to sitting justices.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Leslie Eastman. | March 4, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    See earlier news and my post above yours.

    Schumer threatened them by name.

    “…when you specifically call out Gorsuch and Kavanaugh and threaten them….”

      Besides threatening them specifically, it could also be what Leslie said, because any judge who will be considered for the next open SCOTUS seat during a Trump administration (if there is one) knows what Gorsuch and especially Kavanaugh were put through and continue to endure (along with their families) and know that they will be next.

      If that judge replaces Ginsberg, he or she is especially going to get it since it won’t be a one-for-one ideological swap.

        notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to p. | March 4, 2020 at 9:12 pm

        You’re right it could be that too.

    Milhouse in reply to Toad-O. | March 4, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    That takes 2/3 of the senate, which isn’t happening. But even if it did Cuomo would probably appoint him to the vacant seat, or he’d run at the next election and be back.

      Doesn’t the Senate have the right to determine if an elected/appointed Senator may be seated? (I vaguely remember that somewhere) Even if not, it would be an interesting exercise to see how many times Schumer could be expelled from the Senate before common sense (or sanity) prevails, and they send somebody else.

      My money would be on three expulsions, the last one taking ten minutes, tops.

        Milhouse in reply to georgfelis. | March 4, 2020 at 11:56 pm

        No, the senate cannot refuse to seat a duly elected or appointed member. If there’s any doubt whether the person was duly elected or appointed, or whether they meet the constitutional qualifications, then the senate can decide that. But where there’s no doubt it must seat him.

        And both houses of congress have a very long-standing position that their power to expel members only applies to offenses committed since the members was last elected. The Supreme Court has not endorsed this view, but it has taken official notice of the fact that this is what successive congresses have believed for well over a century, and that they’re unlikely to stop believing it now.

Torcer says:

Why not initiate a Red Flag order to temporarily remove him from office since he appears to be a threat to others.

If that due process free abomination is good enough for innocent gun owners, why not him?

Trump’s comment was much different from Schumer’s. Anyone can criticize the rulings or even competence of SCOTUS justices. We can’t remove them, but we can criticize them.

That’s not the same as a threat.

Lou Dobbs rips Schumer several new ones tonight!

https://twitter.com/i/status/1235364865683918850

Let me assure you that by 0900 tomorrow morning, Senator Scott (R-SC) and Senator Graham (R-SC) –aka Sweet Lindsey—will have heard from me. I will request, without equivocation, that they introduce a motion to CENSURE Senator Schumer. Let’s just see if they have any balls. My guess is that they don’t.

Schumer’s statement was an open invitation to the violent leftists and anarchists to target the justices, their families, and their homes. The correct response is to force his resignation which will signal those same forces that we are ready for them.

Trump must be over the target to get him so unhinged. His little SDNY team jig is up. Something tells me that SDNY is going down and Chuckles is going to be crashed by it.

SeekingRationalThought | March 4, 2020 at 10:47 pm

Schumer just proved himself to be…(wait for it) …..Deplorable. See Crooked Hilary, Schumer is what the word “deplorable” means. It doesn’t just mean people who vote against you.

I assumed his threat was that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh would be impeached and removed, after the Dems take the senate back in a landslide. He knows that’s not going to happen, of course, but he meant to rile up the crowd.

3 Equal Branches.
Let’s see which one is the most equal.

Live by violence, you die by it.

It’ll be interesting to see if schumer gets whacked.

Having slept on it, I have a new take: This is about the Democratic Primary.

1) The Democrats are divided and turning on one another.
2) Biden’s just won a round, and Sanders needs to start attacking him to have a chance to win.
3) Nothing brings people together like a common enemy.

so 4) Chuck Schumer picks a big, public fight where every Democrat will be rabidly on his side:
4a. It’s abortion, the holy sacrament.
4b. It’s the two judges who they think are illegitimate anyway. (Garland and Ford)

now 5) Democrats have a common enemy to rail against, creating instant party unity.
and 6) If Sanders tries to start a new line of attack against Biden, it will reenforce the impression that he’s not a team player for the Democrats.

Ugly. And worst of all, I expect it will work.

Schumer reminds me of the Democrats of old where these kind of threats might be followed by a visit from the KKK. Threats, intimidation, and violence are part of the Democrat Party tradition, supplemented by voter fraud and lies of course.

I grew up in a place littered with billboards saying Impeach Earl Warren.

So I’m familiar with Democrats who are unhappy with the Supreme Court.

“Cuck” schumer is classless political “lifer” who must be taking speaking advice from joe biden.

Schumer threaten two Justices saying “they won’t know what hit them” big difference.

Trumps call is legal procedural one, Schumer’s is the kind of threat people are in jail for.
