Ian Millhiser’s op-ed is a well-reasoned op-ed about Democrat sour grapes. (Actually, it isn’t that well-reasoned.) It contains some things, though, that will likely turn into Democrat talking points.

In his op-ed, Millhiser states that “In the incoming Senate, Democratic senators will represent at least 20,314,962 more people than their Republican counterparts — and that’s if we assume that Republicans win both runoff elections in Georgia.” Later, Millhiser makes an incendiary statement, saying “This is not what the American people voted for in November. But it is what a deeply broken Constitution, which effectively gives extra Senate seats to white conservatives in small states, has given us.”

That’s a thoroughly racist statement. Frankly, it’s disgusting to hear this. When the Constitution was written, Madison, Jefferson and Hamilton enshrined in their document the legislative branch, composed of the House and the Senate. The House was supposed to represent the people. It was elected by the people. The Senate was supposed to represent the states. It was elected by each state’s legislature.

Here’s why it’s imperative that Republicans maintain their Senate majority:

Similarly, if Republicans control the Senate in 2021, the GOP will have the power to prevent Joe Biden from confirming a Cabinet, to block everyone Biden nominates to the federal bench, to prevent Biden from signing any legislation, and even to shut down the government.

If Biden wants a return to a Obama-style cabinet, Republicans shouldn’t hesitate in rejecting people like Clapper, Brennan and Kerry. Republicans should tell him explicitly that deep staters that politicized the IC won’t be tolerated. Further, Republicans should tell Biden that a return to an Obama-style foreign policy won’t be tolerated.

President Trump, Secretary Pompeo and Jared Kushner made far too much progress on Middle East peace to have Biden piss that progress away. If Biden wants to cozy up to Iran and Russia, like Obama did, the answer should be an emphatic no. In terms of Biden’s China virus task force, this should frighten people:

Republicans can’t prevent the appointing of Biden’s task force but they can highlight Ezekiel Emmanuel as a member of it. Emmanuel is the father of the death panel provision in Obamacare. Another thing that they can do is highlight often is President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, then compare Biden’s programs against that program. Republicans should highlight that President Trump pulled companies together that produced results like this:


President Trump put together the industry that produced the fastest effective vaccine in world history. Biden didn’t do that. Republicans should highlight the Trump policies that make people healthy, prosperous and safe on our city streets. Republicans should highlight how Biden’s decisions destabilized the world, our neighborhoods more dangerous and less prosperous. Biden ran on the notion that he’d fix the China virus. It’s apparent that President Trump did that.
