Agreed, we need to put a new Supreme Court Justice on the vacant bench as soon as possible. The troubling thing is the left's response to the possibility of a Trump nominated candidate. Their response: War....burn it all down....lay siege to Congress. Time to bring in a large organization that swore and oath to support and defend the U. S. Constitution, the military. Place them in large metropolitan areas and have the federal government do what they did with the state police in Oregon; federally deputize them and also put them into the large metropolitan areas. If anyone starts acting non-peacefully, grab them up, toss them into federal custody and keep them there, while preparing for "sedition" trials.
This nation has, through many generations, prided itself on its ability to not only have civil dialogue, but also a peaceful transition of power. However, thanks to the left's behavior through these last three and a half years, a peaceful transition would be an insult to every armed service member that fought and died against Marxism in Korea and Vietnam.
The Democrat response should be fight fire with fire.

If a blatant power grab 6 weeks from the election is the Trumpian game, let President Biden appoint three more justices.

The constitution doesn’t say anything about how many justices may sit on the SCOTUS.
Are you contending Obama didnt do the same thing with Garland?
Blame Moscow Mitch for his slimy power grab!
How is it a power grab to do exactly what the Constitution dictates you do?
The constitution dictates the senate advise and consent. Moscow Mitch would not allow the senate to do just that. Moscow Mitch blatantly pulled a power grab by plaint himself n the role of the United States senate. He is one of my ne hundred.
Nothing in the constitution mentions hearings or any process. The majority party of the Senate simply decided in private not to approve Obama’s nominee.
The majority leader.

I find it amazing you don't see the hypocrisy here! If the shoe was on the other foot, you'd be making the same argument I am because, deep down I think you care for fair play and the American way. It's the dark hex cast over your morals by despicable characters like Trump. Personality cults do that.
Obama and Schumer would push through a replacement,so should Trump and Mitch.
Would you celebrate and approve of Obama and Schumer the way you celebrate and approve of the Trump/McConnell move?

Or is your rationale two wrongs make a right?
It isn't wrong. It is the job of the president to nominate the next Chief Justice. He's going to do so. It is the job of the Senate Judicial Committee to vote on accepting him/her. It id the job for the Senate to vote on the nominee. That will be done.

Lefties, elections have consequences.

Hillary should have made a final trip through the Blue Wall. Her staff told her to and the arrogant bitch told them to fuck off.

We need a full SCOTUS going into an election.

Suck on that, Dimwingers. Not just Republicans, but a majority of Dimwingers and Independents support replacing Ginsberg now.

People favor confirmation hearings for Supreme Court vacancy in 2020: Poll

A new poll conducted shortly before the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed that an overwhelming majority of U.S. adults of all political stripes supported holding hearings for a nominee if a vacancy opened on the nation's highest bench.


Marquette University released the survey results on Saturday that showed 67% of adults believed the Senate should hold a hearing if a vacancy occurred during 2020's race, with only 32% opposition — and similar strong numbers across Republicans, Democrats, and independents, who supported holding confirmation hearings at 68-31%, 63-37%, and 71-28% respectively. The poll was completed three days before the death of Ginsburg, the 87-year-old liberal icon who was nominated by President Bill Clinton and confirmed in 1993. Ginsburg earned praise from Democrats and Republicans upon news of her death.

Ginsburg’s death in the middle of 2020's election drew comparisons to the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, the 79-year-old conservative icon, Ronald Reagan appointee, and longtime Ginsburg friend, who died in February 2016 during the Democratic and Republican primaries. President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, to fill Scalia’s vacancy that March. But Senate Republicans declined to hold confirmation hearings or a vote, arguing that they wouldn’t confirm a justice appointed by a lame-duck president of the opposite party and that the winner in the 2016 election should fill the vacancy.
