Intimidation, threats from the Left


Just when we all thought the Left had reached the bottom, they continue to amaze with their frequent negative anti-Trump rhetoric. President Trump has been called “everything in the book” except an achieving president who delivers on his 2016 campaign speech promises one by one. Many of his promises have already been delivered in three short years, with more to come in spite of constant obstruction by the Left and some in his own party.

The Left in concert with Mainstream Media pounds the airways with negative comments on a daily basis directed at President Trump. One might assume that the Left thinks they “own” all branches of the Federal Government and when it doesn’t go their way…anything goes. Just a few days ago, the Left represented by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “lost it!” A vicious verbal attack was directed at Supreme Court Justices (nominated by President Trump) Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. As if they both hadn’t been the target of much negative commentary during their hearings. Mr. Schumer on the steps of the Supreme Court Building uttered: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, 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.” (Relating to the abortion controversy being discussed by the Supreme Court that day.)

I think most rational thinking individuals would call this an intimidation and personal threat to Supreme Court Justices who are not supposed to be party affiliated and are charged with carrying out the laws of the United States. Many have said that this was a direct and dangerous threat to the U.S. Supreme Court. Some say he should be censored by the Senate. Threats and intimidation directed at Supreme Court Justices have no place in our society.
