Senate votes to confirm Biden pick for AG – 70-30

Attorney General Merrick Garland was confirmed in a landslide 70-30 vote before the United States Senate on Wednesday, according to The Hill

President Joe Biden nominated Garland for the prestigious position almost five years after many on the left felt he was robbed of his chance to sit on the Supreme Court.

Garland’s Supreme Court dreams were dashed due to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) and his decision not to hear former President Barack Obama’s nomination just months before the heated 2016 presidential election. During this nomination, however, McConnell backed the firmly leftist nominee: 

“I’m voting to confirm Judge Garland because of his long reputation as a straight shooter and a legal expert. His left-of-center perspective has been within the legal mainstream,” McConnell said ahead of Wednesday’s vote according to The Hill.

“Let’s hope our incoming attorney general applies that no-nonsense approach to the serious challenges facing the Department of Justice [DOJ] and our nation.”

The New York Post reported late February that Garland had bipartisan support for the position of attorney general after years of a tumultuous aura following the job.  

The job of the attorney general is one that many consider to be of monumental importance due to the sheer volume of decisions that are left up to the attorney general’s discretion. 

During his Senate confirmation hearing, Garland promised to “fend off any effort by anyone to make prosecutions or investigations partisan or political in any way,” something conservatives find doubtful about the deeply entrenched leftist.

The stakes are high, however, for anyone hoping to retain the traditional American way of life. It’s not a far-fetched theory to guess that a corrupt attorney general could completely annihilate the trust of Americans (and the world) in the United States law enforcement institution and justice system.

  1. Well, maybe if Obama hadn’t MURDERED Justice Scalia in an attempted “coup-by-Supreme-Court” in which he hoped to change the balance of the Court by appointing another of his compliant and complicit STOOGES so the Court would uphold whatever he wanted to do, no matter HOW illegal and/or unconstitutional, Merrick Garland might have been confirmed to the Supreme Court. But Obama’s attempted takeover of the Supreme Court by MURDERING one of the greatest Constitutionalist jurists who ever SAT on that Court was too much–even for the normally GUTLESS Republicans in the Senate–and they refused to even hold HEARINGS on Merrick Garland’s appointment to the Court–much LESS confirm him.

    1. Mitch is back to business as usual, ( selling out America) like he doesn’t know how this leftist will proceed as Attorney General. Mitch and about half of the so called Republicans need to be primaried out as their terms expire.

    2. It would have to go directly to congress and the supreme court and ask for a special council. To investigate this Administration. Its going to be hard to get this corrupt Administration out. They’re evil.

    3. Justise Scalia was murdered by the Democrats . He would have been for the conservative cases . That is why the liberalS WANTED HIM KILLED .How many believe he was killed for a a new justice of liberal persuasion?

      .

      1. Yes I believe Justice Scalia was murdered because he was a true conservative and fair person who was upsetting libs plans for obama/hillary/biden crimes.

  2. Not sure but appointment of garland will probably end the opportunity for conservatives to impeach any dems

  3. Each of the GOP senators who voted for this pos should be HUNG by there feet.
    What is the idea of approving such a POS as Garland.
    Listening to him was enough to put me to sleep.
    Boring Lying MOTHER F….said he had no opinion on gun rights, on illegals etc.
    Ask this ???? why the frigg wud you leave a cushy federal judgeship where you do very very little, get paid 200K plus what you can steal, a LIFE TIME JOB no less, why leave that for AG of the USA. STUPID MORON.
    Why are GOP senators giving in to the DEMORATS look at what they did to TRUMPS appointees.
    Sorry GOP SENATORS need to go away along with the damn DEMORATS

  4. Our Republic died on November 4th of 2020

    Hope the 81,000,000 alleged and unverified Voters realize what they’ve done. You people just killed the greatest Nation this world has known.

  5. Garland is another sign of the war being waged against conservatives and more importantly of this Great Country ! And by the way DUMP Mitch !!!!

  6. Attorney General Merrick Garland, were in big deep do do with this idiot. Crap, they couldn’t find anyone else, off the street, average guy.

  7. Any questions that this is Obama2.0? Biden is hiring on all the old Bama cronies and putting folks in position they have zero knowledge about based on identity politics. What could go wrong with that, beside everything.

  8. Well that just puts one more nail in the coffin of the Democracy of the US. All the prophecy is coming true right before our eyes, wake up people we had better get on our knees and ask for intercession from our Father in heaven!

    1. I already have.
      They have broken their oaths of office, and are committing treason against the United States by trying to destroy the Constitution, our freedom, and our rights.
      Don’t worry, God will judge them all, no matter what happens here on earth. Those who believe in God, and accept Jesus as their savior can’t be hurt by Democrats. I do not fear them.

  9. Why not? Just another unamerican know nothing that will continue the left’s attack to destroy America. They may succeed this time. I hope God is on our side as we need all the help we can get…

  10. Does anyone know how many actual republicians are in office in DC? I am for our country and people so if a republician policy is bad for us by all means do not support it….. but voting for policies or people who are not putting country first to play nice or be rewarded, etc is not why they were elected! Sound more like rinos and we pay the price for their disloyalty! We need legitimate republicians who will follow our constitution. Period!

  11. CALL these RINOS and give them apiece of your mind. 202- 224-3121
    TELL them they are in there LAST term for EVER. We can tell by there ACTIONS that they do NOT work for the PEOPLE. Good by RINOS.

  12. Another Deep State puppet?
    Congress has not been able to confirm an AG who has not disappointed for awhile.

  13. He swore in open hearings to”Break” the law and push Biden’s gun control agenda . And Mitch thinks that’s ok ? Barry’s in the WH basement laughing his fool head off . . . A third term indeed !
