Following is a list of the ten Republican Senators who voted for Lynch, and with their votes assured the assumption of office of a woman who is even more radical than Eric Holder. Here is the list:
Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader of the Senate and Senator from Kentucky; Thad Cochran, a man of questionable mental capacity representing Mississippi; Lindsey Graham, the junior Senator from South Carolina who was reelected because the Tea Party splintered into so many factions; Orrin Hatch, a fossil from Utah who has claimed to be the champion of the document he destroyed today; Rob Portman, junior Senator of Ohio most noted for his ability to evolve toward the Left in almost everything he does; Kelly Ayotte, a freshman Senator from New Hampshire who claimed to be a friend of the Tea Party; Susan Collins, always a liberal Republican looking continually for ways to support the Democrats; Jeff Flake, an Arizona freshman who has sold out on almost all issues after claiming to be a Conservative when he campaigned; Mark Kirk of Illinois, a man who is nearly indistinguishable from your average Chicago Democrat; and finally Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, a man who ran as a Conservative, needed Tea Party support to get elected, and now has decided that the "club" is more important than the country.
Mark Levin made and excellent point last night which really gets to the heart of the matter. Yesterday's vote was a litmus test for the Constitution. If you voted for Lynch, you obviously don't mind putting in office an Attorney General who will swear allegiance under oath to the Constitution before she immediately refuses to honor her oath. If you voted against, you state that the Constitution trumps any individual, no matter how well trained as a lawyer since enforcing the rule of law, not the whims of man, trumps any other consideration.
I hold Mitch McConnell especially responsible for the action yesterday. He ran for reelection saying he would fight for America and then the next day stood and said he would cave to Obama without a fight. And yesterday was the icing on the cake as he no longer even gives lip service the rules that have guided this nation so well for over two hundred years.
America is in deep trouble, friends, and it is even quite possible that we are now past the tipping point. I pray that is not the case and that good Americans join together to make a gigantic change at the top in 2016. That change must bring the winds of Constitutional Conservatism to power. I think this is the last chance we have to save the Republic and it can't be saved by continuing down our present course. Remember what these ten sell-out Republicans did yesterday and vow to never vote again without verifying their words by checking what they have actually done.
May God save the Republic from itself.
