UNHINGED: Schumer threatens Supreme Court Justices!

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is in hot water after threatening Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. At an abortion rights rally on the steps of the High Court yesterday, an "unhinged" Schumer yelled:

"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."


The top-ranking Senate Democrat may have thought he simply was delivering an "applause line" in front of a "friendly" crowd of abortion supporters. But his comments were a reprehensible and purely partisan verbal assault against two excellent and esteemed jurists.

 

As a direct response to Schumer's hateful rhetoric, Grassfire is empowering our team members to call on Congress for the immediate censure of the Senior Senator from New York. His threats against the judicial branch, which exists to protect the rights of EVERY AMERICAN, should result in an official reprimand from his colleagues in the "Upper Chamber."

This morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) chastised Schumer on the Senate floor, saying:

"Contrary to what the Democratic Leader has since tried to claim, he very clearly was not addressing Republican lawmakers or anybody else. He literally directed the statement to the Justices, by name. And he said, quote, 'if you go forward with these awful decisions,' which could only apply to the Court itself. The Minority Leader of the United States Senate threatened two Associate Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Period. There’s no other way to interpret that."

Later, Schumer apologized for yesterday's tirade saying, "I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. I would never do such a thing."

He blamed Republicans for a "gross distortion" of his words. Schumer also claimed that Republicans "try to accomplish through the courts what they would never accomplish in the court of public opinion."

But the law he was protesting yesterday was passed by the duly elected Louisiana legislature in 2014. Abortion rights supporters are challenging that law in an attempt "to accomplish through the courts what they would never accomplish in the court of public opinion." So, Schumer was wrong yesterday, and he's wrong again today.

If you think the Senior Senator from New York should be officially reprimanded for his threats against Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh, join other grassroots patriots who are making their voices heard. Click here to sign the "Censure Schumer!" national petition now.

Thanks, in advance, for taking action today.

For liberty and limited government,

The Grassfire Team

P.S. Schumer also said his "strong language" is a result of being from Brooklyn, New York. If he was just "some guy from the neighborhood," that lame excuse might fly. But he's the top-ranking Democrat in the United States Senate. He needs to be held to a higher standard than what he displayed yesterday.

    From an 84 year old woman, I knew back when, that this should be a very private procedure (abortion) between a woman and her doctor and not this political football. Is this another

    Schumer believes he is the eternal savior of all humanity while in truth, he is nothing more than a typical Democratic Party LIAR. He is a person who if his mouth is moving and sound is coming out, it is a LIE, pure and simple as was demonstrated during the impeachment trial against Our President Trump, probably THE BEST PRESIDENT EVER IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. And those who follow politics closely know why the Democrats are so upset over Hillary “The Criminal” Clinton lost her Presidential election bid to Donald J. Trump. During the 2012 Presidential election in which all of America was positive Obama would get his butt handed to him because he was so terrible as President. All the Congressional Democrats walked about Washington with long faces knowing they were going to get demolished in the election. Suddenly with about 6 weeks to go, over one weekend, Obama began appearing with a huge smile declaring, “We will win, no doubt.” Then all the rest of the congressional Democrats began doing the same with huge smiles. Everyone else was puzzled. Then the election came and to everyone’s shock, Obama won. Almost immediately, in Indiana 4 Democrats were arrested and carted off to jail charged with election fraud. Authorities during the trial of the four, stated the scheme they used was so great, that it was only an accident that it was discovered and further, it could be done across the country to control the election and it was very unlikely it would be discovered. Might we now know the reason Obama won in 2012 and that suddenly during one weekend about 6 weeks before the election, he and the rest of the low-life Democrats all began smiling and declaring they would win while the rest of the country laughed. IF indeed, they used the same voter fraud scheme found in Indiana that caused for men to go to prison for voter fraud, and we believe they did, then the same scheme was used to put Hillary “The Criminal” Clinton in the White House, except Donald J. Trump and his people were better at working the election legally and still beat Clinton. The fact that Trump beat CHEATING HILLARY, while his team was campaigning legally, really has upset the Democrats and they are intent upon taking him from office. This is why it is so important for the individuals who recognize all the greatness that Our President Trump has brought to our great nation must get out to vote this year and make sure all who want to vote are able to do so and to help those unable to get to the polls are still able to vote. We cannot allow the Democrats to return to the White House so we can finish draining the swamp and empty Washington and our government of all the lying, scheming Democrats who are determined to take over the government as well as total and complete control of America, all her people, change OUR CONSTITUTION to take all the power from the people and put it in the government and then do away with elections. IF they get any form of socialism into our government, we are then headed to become the USSA, or a copy of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. We cannot allow this to happen and in addition, their first act will be to ban all weapons. Remember, AR rifles are NOT automatic firing weapons nor are they the same as used by our military, yet more lies from the Democrats. For those who believe the Democrats are for the little guy, the minorities and so forth, do not believe it and you can go to the congressional website where you can see every vote ever in congress for all laws passed or defeated and you will find the Democrats EVERYTIME VOTED AGAINST all new laws that would improve conditions for minorities, the little guy and etc. They are the BEST LIARS on the globe, bar none and you should never believe anything they say. God Bless America, God Bless Americans, and God Bless Our President Donald J. Trump!

    As we know, there are absolutely no legal consequences accompanying a censure; therefore, I request to be educated on why a verbal reprimand from a group of Republicans WHO MEAN NOTHING TO CHUCK SCHUMER, would even matter! He clearly doesn’t care what his opposition think and his cohorts, no doubt, align with him.

    If ANYONE I know would say what Senator Schumer said to the two Conservative judges, THERE WOULD BE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES! Why…WHY are these egregious left-wing personalities, actions and people exempt from the law? Why do they deserve different consequences than you or I? Why are Progressives promoting EVIL in every sense of the word – LIKE HILLARY DESTROYING EVIDENCE – able to WALK, from being held accountable in ANY WAY, strutting with a smirk knowing they will get away with so much? It is happening ad nauseam and we show our strength with a PETITION TO CENSURE?! 🤦‍♀️ How about we have a petition to hold him legally accountable for THREATENING A CIVIL SERVANT?! CENSURE IS absolutely an INADEQUATE response to what has been said, and unless there is something I do not know that a Censure might escalate or is a first step toward accountability with legal consequences as you and I would face, it is my opinion, a petition AND a censure are worthless. It may make us feel we’ve done something – like scolding a naughty seven year old, but in actuality, censure has just as much influence on future behavior and establishing precedents as scolding a child!
    If we need to show we are STRONG and HOMOGENOUS AS CONSERVATIVES, then we need to BE STRONG and not settle for a little slap on the back of the hand. C SCHUMER DESERVES the same thing to happen to him as would happen to me under the same circumstances.
    Sorry, but a censure is not enough. I will sign the petition wholeheartedly IF I learn that it’s phase one required to react to him just as any other AMERICAN.
    Thank you for allowing me to express my concern and request a response as to how a Censure affects ANYTHING in 2020 where NO ONE seems to care what anyone thinks –
