“This is going to nationalize the Senate elections, it’s going to nationalize the 2022 Senate elections. You got Lisa Murkowski up in 2022, Chuck Grassley up in 2022. And if there’s a nomination and McConnell sets hearings and they start trying to throw up road blocks for that, they can call their careers over.
“In 2022, they will not get past their primaries. So, this is very significant and Mitch McConnell is the master of understanding the dynamics, the political dynamics in the Senate.
“But Lisa Murkowski and Chuck Grassley and Mitt Romney and others need to understand their own careers on the line as well.” – NOM chairman John Eastman, speaking last night on Laura Ingraham’s show.
Eastman last appeared on JMG when he published a racist birther column about Kamala Harris.
Longtime JMG readers will recall Eastman’s many, many attacks on LGBTQ rights. In 2015, he wrote that he hoped that former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’s defiance would ignite a wave of revolt against “lawless” same-sex marriage.
That same year he declared that Uganda’s should reinstate its life sentence for homosexuality “in short order.”
Also in 2015, Sen. Ted Cruz called Eastman to testify about the “tyranny” of the Supreme Court. Cruz, not incidentally, has also been accused of not being a “natural born citizen,” which Eastman has said he is.
