    Surge Summary: The Senate has confirmed Biden appointee Judge Merrick Garland as attorney general of the United States. Twenty Republicans went along with this “Yes” vote – but why? Garland’s views on a number of vital issues ought to be red alerts to anyone concerned about Democrats’ imposing their hard-Left agenda on the nation.

    The Senate [Wednesday] confirmed Judge Merrick Garland to be attorney general of the United States.  I wasn’t surprised by the outcome in the Democrat Senate.  But I was disappointed by the 70 to 30 vote.

    Why would 20 Republicans vote for Garland?

    Do they approve of his defense of Antifa?

    Do they approve of his professed ignorance on illegal immigration?

    Do they approve of his hostility to the Second Amendment?

    I understand that Joe Biden is going to appoint a liberal attorney general.  I understand that the Democrat Senate will confirm that individual.  But I don’t understand why any conservative senator would feel a need to vote for him.

    Democrats would never do that.  Only one Democrat – not 20 – voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

    Sadly, this vote shows that many GOP senators still don’t get it.  They desperately want to get back to “normal times,” but there are no Democrats saying we need to get back to normal.

    To the contrary, Democrats are pushing a hard-left agenda, which every conservative should be fighting, and Attorney General Garland will be crucial to implementing that hard-left agenda!

    The Senate will soon be voting on more of Biden’s extreme nominees, including Xavier Becerra, Kristen Clarke, Vanita Gupta and Rachel Levine.  I hope Senate Republicans show better judgment and more unity on these votes.
