10月13日,参议员谢尔顿·怀特豪斯(Sheldon Whitehouse)在国会山举行的确认听证会的第二天,当艾米·科尼·巴雷特(Amy Coney Barrett)法官出现在参议院司法委员会面前时发表讲话2aK世界播

Viewers of cable TV might recall when Glenn Beck would get out the chalkboard after the financial panic and lay out in astonishing detail the multiple and supposedly nefarious connections among Goldman Sachs, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and various others in the vast Wall Street conspiracy. Mr. Beck has retreated to the internet as far as we know, but American politics has found his spiritual doppleganger in Sheldon Whitehouse. 2aK世界播

有线电视的观众可能还记得,在金融恐慌之后,格伦·贝克(Glenn Beck)会拿出黑板,惊人地详细展示高盛(Goldman Sachs)、财政部长蒂姆·盖特纳(Tim Geithner)和其他各种人在华尔街的巨大阴谋中存在的多重、据称是邪恶的联系。据我们所知,贝克先生已经退居互联网,但美国政治已经在谢尔登·怀特豪斯身上找到了他的精神二重身。2aK世界播

The Rhode Island Senator had 30 minutes to question Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Tuesday, but he failed to ask anything. He devoted his time instead to a Glenn Beck-style tutorial on the vast right-wing conspiracy that is supposedly buying the federal courts. 2aK世界播

周二,这位罗德岛州参议员有30分钟的时间询问最高法院提名人艾米·科尼·巴雷特(Amy Coney Barrett),但他没有提出任何问题。相反,他把时间花在了格伦·贝克(Glenn Beck)式的教程上,内容是所谓的收买联邦法院的巨大右翼阴谋。2aK世界播

Sheldon the Vampire Slayer had names and props and numbers and arrows—all in the service of his theory that Leonard Leo, formerly of the Federalist Society, and a financial network have secretly schemed for decades to nominate Judge Barrett. This followed Mr. Leo’s dastardly and heretofore unknown manipulative success in getting Chief Justice John Roberts, as well as Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh on the High Court. Congrats, Mr. Leo. 2aK世界播

吸血鬼杀手谢尔顿有名字和道具,有数字和箭-所有这些都是为了支持他的理论,即前联邦主义者协会的伦纳德·利奥(Leonard Leo)和一个金融网络几十年来一直在秘密策划提名巴雷特法官。在此之前,利奥以迄今不为人知的卑鄙手段成功地让首席大法官约翰·罗伯茨(John Roberts)以及大法官塞缪尔·阿利托(Samuel Alito)、尼尔·戈尔萨奇(Neil Gorso)和布雷特·卡瓦诺(Brett Kavanaugh)进入最高法院。恭喜你,利奥先生。2aK世界播

Like all obsessives, Mr. Whitehouse has a single theory that explains everything: “dark money.” Thus the supposed connections between Mr. Leo and this group or that group, all flowing inevitably back somehow to, wait for it, the Koch brothers. “Something is not right around the Court, and dark money has a lot to do with it,” he said. 2aK世界播


You have to love that use of the vague “something.” We haven’t seen such a weird performance since Mr. Whitehouse attempted to find the hidden messages in Justice Kavanaugh’s high-school yearbook at his confirmation hearing. 2aK世界播


Mr. Whitehouse had the bad luck to be followed by Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who related Mr. Whitehouse’s ties to such Democratic dark-money operations as Demand Justice and Arabella Advisors. Demand Justice is among the progressive outfits demanding that Democrats pack the Supreme Court with new Justices if they win the Senate. Arabella funds a variety of left-wing political groups that in turn fund Democrats. But Arabella doesn’t disclose its financial donors. 2aK世界播

紧随怀特豪斯之后的是共和党参议员特德·克鲁兹(Ted Cruz)。克鲁兹将怀特豪斯与“需求正义”(Demand Justice)和“阿拉贝拉顾问”(Arabella Advisors)等民主党黑钱业务联系起来。Demand Justice是要求民主党人在赢得参议院后为最高法院配备新法官的进步团体之一。阿拉贝拉为各种左翼政治团体提供资金,这些团体反过来又为民主党人提供资金。但Arabella没有透露其财务捐赠者。2aK世界播

Mr. Cruz’s rebuttal won’t stop Mr. Whitehouse, whose goal is to delegitimize the current Supreme Court in the eyes of the public. Recall how he and other Democrats threatened to restructure the Supreme Court if the Justices ruled the wrong way in a gun-rights case. He wants to intimidate the Justices into voting his way or, failing that, prepare the political ground for Court-packing. We’re not sure what Judge Barrett made of the political antics, but we trust she’ll ignore it all after she’s confirmed as soon as the Senate can hold a vote. 2aK世界播
