Chuck Schumer’s slot as head of the U.S. Senate may be over sooner than he thinks.
If he loses control of the Senate, he will have no one to blame but himself.
And it’s all because Schumer just got hit with one stunning attack no one saw coming.
Chuck Schumer is walking on a knife’s edge.
With just 50 seats in the Senate held by Democrats and their two “independent” allies, the party only controls the upper chamber of Congress by the skin of their teeth.
And with the 2022 elections set to become a red wave due to soaring inflation, rising gas prices, a collapsing economy, and a crisis on the southern border, Schumer has an uphill battle to retain control of the Senate.
But now, that monumental task may have just become even harder for him to achieve.
And it’s all because his own words just came back to haunt him in a major way.
RealClearPolitics reports, “The would-be assassin has sat behind bars for a week, and coverage of his foiled plot to murder Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has receded from the headlines as inflation, a shaky stock market, and the Jan. 6 Commission all compete for that space. The story on the threats to the life of a member of the highest court in the land has increasingly been buried. But conservatives won’t let the frightening incident recede into voters’ memory banks. They are determined to lay the blame at the feet of Democrats, one prominent Democrat in particular.”
The attacks on Schumer come as a surprise, but in retrospect, they should not have.
Schumer had been saying remarks like this for years, and now, his own words are being used against him.
What’s more, there’s no escaping what Schumer said in light of the assassination attempt one Left-wing radical made against one of Donald Trump’s appointed Supreme Court Justices.
The cat is now out of the bag and everyone knows that Schumer bears some responsibility for how he incited the Left’s hostile reaction to the Supreme Court.
RealClearPolitics adds, “Judicial Crisis Network has cut a new attack ad highlighting previous rhetoric by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, warning Kavanaugh that there would be consequences if he voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. The conservative legal group spent $300,000 to promote the spot in the Washington, D.C. market. Their intended audience: Schumer’s Capitol Hill colleagues.”
But it won’t just be Schumer who bears the brunt of responsibility for these remarks.
Instead, it will be his fellow Senate Democrats who are up for re-election in difficult races across the country.
In states like Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona, Senate Democrats are being asked to go up against decades of historical precedent, a collapsing economy, and now Left-wing attacks on some of America’s most important political institutions.
The very party that spent years complaining about Trump’s “breaking with norms” openly encouraged violence against a sitting member of the highest court, and now they want to play the victim.
“Republicans have highlighted such incendiary rhetoric, attempting to draw a connection between careless words and an actual assassination plot. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, shared the clip of Schumer shortly after news broke of the failed plot, calling it ‘cause and effect.’,” concludes RealClearPolitics.
