You can go back and read that again. Yes, I really said it. And believe me, this wasn’t an easy thing for me to do.

On behalf of Tea Party grassroots supporters and myself, thank you for doing the right thing by standing up for the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, and giving the people a voice in the future direction of the Supreme Court based on the 2016 Presidential and Congressional elections. We cannot allow a lame duck, radical leftist President select a justice who is going to help “fundamentally transform” America to suit the far left’s agenda.

I’ve been very honest about the many times I’ve disagreed with the establishment, but these two politicians are doing the right thing now. They are taking the right approach by holding courtesy meetings with Merrick Garland to inform him that there is no chance of holding hearings. Their leadership on this issue will prevent a liberal judge with liberal ideas from becoming Obama’s parting gift to the nation. Garland’s anti-first and second amendment record shows that the Constitution is in serious danger of unraveling should he be appointed to the bench.

Unfortunately, this should be a simple issue. This shouldn’t even be a fight. In fact, President Obama, Vice-President Biden, Senator Minority Leader Reid, and others are all on record supporting what is now the common-sense GOP position.
