But internal dissent isn’t the only hitch in McConnell’s plan for entrenching Republican dominance of the judicial branch. In the wake of Garland’s defeat, Trump’s victory, and the ensuing blitzkrieg of far-right judicial appointments, progressive groups began organizing behind judicial reform.

They’ve represented the views of large multinational corporations that wanted access to cheap Chinese labor, sometimes slave labor, and they were willing to tolerate anything in exchange for access to China’s 1.3 billion consumers.
