WASHINGTON, July 15, 2016 — A few days ago, democratic socialist and losing Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Sort of.
“It is no secret that Hillary Clinton and I disagree on a number of issues,” said the wild-eyed Sanders. “That’s what this campaign has been about. That’s what democracy is about. But I am happy to tell you that at the Democratic Platform Committee which ended Sunday night in Orlando, there was a significant coming together between the two campaigns and we produced, by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party.”
The document promises America’s youth a “free” college education in a system that is 35th among the 60 nations ranked.
Hillary Clinton, a forgotten afterthought to Sanders’ ravings, stood frozen in the background; a smiling deer caught in the burning high-beams of her party’s delusional base.
Meanwhile, the equally wild-eyed social engineer from the nation’s high court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, gave an equally backhanded endorsement of Hillary during an interview with the disseminator of leftist drivel, the New York Times.
“I can’t imagine what this place [the Supreme Court] would be – I can’t imagine what the country would be – with Donald Trump as our president,” said Ginsberg. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be – I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
The thought of a Trump presidency triggered – if only temporarily – static electrical impulses to pop within her brain’s dimming neurons, “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,” said Ginsberg.
And we’ll wave a fond bon voyage from the dock.
At age 83 and in poor health, Justice Ginsberg fears a President Trump will replace her and other cadaverous members of the high court with younger, livelier jurists from among a list he released last May.
One name of note is Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen, who upon her confirmation in 2015 said she would be a “strict [constitutional] constructionist” when interpreting the law “as written by the legislature and signed by the governor. I don’t think judges are a policy-making branch of government.”
Larsen is not so arrogant as to issue edicts defining the precise moment life begins or to take it upon herself to redefine institutions like marriage. As the late Justice Antonin Scalia once wrote, “A system of government that makes the People subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy.”
Larson clerked for Scalia after graduating Northwestern University School of Law.
According to The Hill, Senate Democrats “raised concerns with Hillary Clinton during a private meeting in the Capitol Thursday over a recent poll showing Donald Trump leading or tied in several battleground states.”
And the latest New York Times poll finds Hillary leads Trump by just 2 points – well within the margin of error.
The Democrats have announced that speaking at Hillary’s nominating convention in Philadelphia will be Astrid Silva, an illegal “Dreamer” who benefited from President Obama’s executive action on immigration – since declared unconstitutional by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
And former President Bill Clinton will introduce the mothers of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, a move clearly designed to gin up racial tensions soon after Dallas sniper Micah Xavier Johnson murdered five officers in tribute to nihilistic hate groups such as Black Lives Matter, whose members become unhinged on hearing the phrase, “All lives matter.”
What worries the ancient and ailing warriors of the old authoritarian left is that American voters don’t seem to hold much confidence in their tired and failed assumptions or, for that matter, in Hillary Clinton.
If she is having problems in the polls, Hillary can thank her party’s unhinged malcontents for their endorsements.
