They are playing games. They really want Pres. Trump to rush in nominating his choice. But he needs to take his time to elect someone to fill the position. He should do it after the election, when he has both control over the House and the Senate. But then, if they has a bunch of paid protesters at the congressional hearings. That it will be hard for them to stay six feet apart under this mask mandate at these hearings.
And so I wonder what these brood of vipers are up to..



Minority Leader Chuck Schumer issued a statement Friday following Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, advising Republicans not to confirm a replacement before the election.

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice,” the New York Democrat said in a statement. “Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

The two parties have battled over filling high court vacancies close to an election.

Democrats wanted the Senate to consider Judge Merrick Garland, whom President Barack Obama nominated to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2015.

But Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, would not take up Garland’s nomination, and it paid off for the GOP when Donald Trump defied the polls and won in 2016.

McConnell, who has ensured the confirmation of hundreds of conservative judges over the past three and a half years, has indicated repeatedly that he would move a nominee if a high court vacancy occurs late in Trump’s term.

Schumer may staunchly oppose taking up a Trump nominee right before the election, but he has little ability to stop McConnell. Both parties have stripped away the filibuster for judges, and now, only 51 votes are needed to confirm a Supreme Court justice.

So Biden couldn't even get folks to show up and listen to him then, either????
So sad and pathetic! And THIS is the man who is supposed to be riding into office on a landslide
election? :omg:

Who is running the left wing machine? What a bunch of delusional incompetent turds they appear to be.
I'm glad I jumped off that train when those evil Arkansas mega-grifters took office and I've never ever
looked back even for one moment.

Those are hardly the same.

Does he want to wait until after this election, when Trump is elected to a second term or, at the earliest, 2024?

The whole "the American people should have a voice" thing is bullshit. It's not the job of the American people to nominate Supreme Court Justices. It never has been and it never should be, That responsibility rests solely with the President.

Trump can do whatever he wants here, and it's the duty of Congress to take whatever choice the President makes and then do their job...

Chuck U. Schumer is a hypocrite deluxe. In 2016, he tried to ram through Merrick Garland's nomination even though it was an election year.

Now, he changes his tune. He should be told to "F" off
Garland we had nearly a year to consider when Guido Scalia got that well deserved appointment to the Netherworld.

This is less than 40 days to an election Trump is probably going to lose.
The idea of fair play in the USA is gone. Your word means nothing in politics, especially for Republicans. McConnell’s decision to move forward on a nominee is hypocrisy of the highest order.

But the polls ...


PLease.

Go look at August/ Sept of some past BLOWOUT elections. The same folks who brought you Russia! 24/7? Are financing ( hence shaping/ rigging ) the polls.

- Voters now give President Trump the highest marks of his presidency when it comes to his handling of the economy and national security. He's doing better than President Obama was going into the 2012 election.​
- President Trump has now edged to a one-point lead over Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the latest Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey. While statistically insignificant, it’s the first time Trump has been ahead.​
- Three-out-of-four voters who’ve had violent anti-police protests in their community rate those protests important to their vote in the presidential election. Among these voters, a sizable majority like the job President Trump is doing.




Toss in Trump's silent but deadly gain in popularity among blacks ? Hispanics? Since 2016?

And Biden's OBVIOUS unfitness for ANYTHING?

Anybody doing the math? You got to get ONE of the RINO shitstains to play along: mittens, that alaska slut, the maine slut or sasse....

All you need is one of them. Pence will break the tie. Then let the marxist shitstains melt down. I've got enough ammo to stop India from getting into my gated community.

McConnell needs to be fearless, move forward with whoever the nominee is, and at least make the attempt to get the nominee seated before January.

Time to play hardball and be "ruthless"!

This does throw Marxist plans for a US take down into a loop. And it gives us four years of breathing space
to get serious about rooting out the gutless plotters and planners in their government safe spaces out into the open where sunlight will hit them like a hammer and then watch the cockroaches scatter.

And it brings to mind the truest words ever written: Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

We have many enemies waiting to jump on us and slice our throats but none are as frightening and effective
as the ones working in this nation this very moment to take us down, Schiff, Schumer, Pelosi, etc.

Ironically this warning was used to smear Trump. It actually applies to his enemies.

The people had their say; they elected trump and repub senate majority.

Seems to me the communist/socialist controlled Democrat Leadership is shaking in their boots because someone who may actually support and defend the text of our Constitution and its documented legislative intent which gives context to its text, will be nominated and be our next Supreme Court Justice.

Of course, those shaking in their boots are among those who approve of using the Humpty Dumpty Theory of Language being applied to our Constitution:

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean- neither more nor less."


JWK


Those who reject abiding by the text of our Constitution, and the intentions and beliefs under which it was agree to, as documented from historical records and gives context to its text, wish to remove the anchor and rudder of our constitutional system so they may then be free to “interpret” the Constitution to mean whatever they wish it to mean.

This is really frightening.

Pelosi says Democrats ‘have our options’ when asked about impeaching Trump if he replaces Ginsburg

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday did not rule out the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump if he tries to push through a Supreme Court nominee to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a lame-duck session.”

Now that our President seems to be moving forward with his duty to nominate someone to take Justice Ginsburg’s place, the communist/socialist controlled Democrat Leadership is showing their real intentions if they ever seize power: packing the Supreme Court; holding more impeachment hearings; getting rid of the Electoral College; creating a number of new democrat controlled states, etc…

Is it not clear that today’s communist/socialist controlled Democrat Party Leadership wants to tear down our very system of government and create a one-party socialist/communist rule over the entire United States and her Citizens?

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powel anxiously awaited the results and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished asked him directly, Well, Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?' A republic, if you can keep it,’ responded Franklin.

Conservatives want a Conservative court. Liberals want a liberal court. By having a fair member of both, the American people are better represented.

It's not about conservatives vs liberals. It's about following rules and preserving and protecting our Constitution, i.e., abiding by its written text and its legislative intent as expressed during its framing and ratification process, which gives context to its text. That is the sworn-to duty of a judge and Justice whether they have "conservative" or "liberal" feelings.

When in doubt, just ask Chuck.

Funny how all the Dems including Joe were singing the OPPOSITE tune a few years ago!

Lemme guess: it was Ruth's DYING WISH!

Has anyone actually confirmed that? How is it that only a few democrats seem, to have heard this?

Ruth, you're lucky you weren't replaced a few years ago in 2016 when you said that Trump had no consistency — I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president…Now it's time for us to move to New Zealand. When asked about a Trump victory, Ginsburg said: "I don't want to think about that possibility."

What kind of Supreme Justice expresses such malice and bias PUBLICLY?

BEWARE! The Biden/Harris Administration, in wanting to keep Obamacare, which currently covers less than 9 million ___ many being foreigners/aliens ___ want to take away the existing private health insurance plans from over 150 million American Citizens, and force them into a Communist/Socialist, Cuban style healthcare system.
