There will be a vote. The nominee will probably be ratified. The WH and the Senate will go blue, and then the Senate will add six new seats to SCOTUS.
Keep dreaming, they won’t be able to add more seats. Even if they did, the next time Republicans take over, they will just add more seats.

Trump's Army
The President nominates Supreme Court Justices rather or not they get confirmed or a hearing is up to the Senate. Lets not forget then Senator Biden and current Senator Schumer both floated the idea of blocking election year Supreme Court nomination under the George H.W. Bush and George W Bush Presidency's rather they would have done it we will never no as no seat opend up during that time. Lets not pretend if the Democrats had still held the Senate in 2016 they would have waited till after the election to confirm Merrick Garland or if they controlled the Senate now they wouldn't block Trump hypocrisy is one of the few things both parties excel at it.
And yet these same Dem leaders tried to confirm a SCOTUS nomination during an election year when Obama was president and threw a conniption fit when the Senate blocked it.

This is going to start a whole new round of crazy!

He really has no choice politically. If he doesn't put a butt in that seat, the Democrats probably take the Senate because clearly that is the prize. They may take it anyway but instead of academic ideas about what a Democratic Controlled Senate would do...it would be you elect this...you get that or you get 4 years of "no" if the blob wins. The hypocrisy may cost R's the senate but he'll keep his seat. He may lose that if he were to not be a hypocrite.
This will motivate every voter to get out and vote. Suspect they will have control of Supreme Court, but not likely to win the Presidency or keep the Senate.
Who?

What if Trump says "let's wait until after the election"? That is going to ensure they ALL vote. Even the RINOS will be cornered.

If Trump does it before, he chooses a woman and gains more female votes. He's in a win/win situation.
Voters will look at it as a complete betrayal by MCConnell, who said 10 months before election is too close before an election to make such a decision. They will take it out on Senate Republicans and on trump.
Wow.

What a really brilliant prediction.

Given that the left is still in the process of burning down cities...nobody is going to give a fuck.
My city hasn't burned, most cities haven't burned, bet your city hasn't burned either. In fact, in cities that have had actual riots, your burning cities has been a few blocks in the city, while a few blocks away any direction 98% plus of the city looks like a normal day, week, month or year in that city. My prediction will be born out, to a much greater extent than you characterization or cities burning down. This is why people don't believe you guys. You overstate the facts and try to use it as a basis for logic. That ain't logic. Look at any city that actually had a riot (not just a demonstration) and tell me I am wrong, just name the city.

you would feel diffr if it was your shit in a small part of a city that got burnt down.

This is going to start a whole new round of crazy!

ammo is already sold out. i got several hundred rounds of lake city green tip if anyone is into it.
Just curious...how much$?

free. i dont shoot it anymore as i sold all my bullet hoses. i even swapped all the 9mm i had for some bike stuff. i just need room. i still have a few glock and AR mags to.
That would personalize it, alright. Still would not mean it is ongoing or that it is ongoing in major parts of the country. Looking at the pictures posted on here last few days and they are more often than not from early Aug or even still sometimes from other countries. How do you expect people to sustain a sense of panic without ongoing violence? I'm just not up to it, especially sense there was never much to begin with in Tennessee, as it is a good way to get arrested and thrown in jail for at least a 45 day cooling off period. Bill Lee signed that into law earlier this year, as Tennesseans just said "No, we don't want that crap here".

good for them, but it doesnt help the guy who runs a subway sammich shop in portland. that crap spreads to. maybe you diddnt see it, i know i diddnt here, but it spreads.
Those people will have to do their own laws. Bill ain't going anywhere. Let face it. Corona Virus appears to still be spreading faster than the violence. What if people read the papers and find out there isn't much continued rioting? Not hard to check local news anywhere in this country. If it were in Jackson or Memphis or even Nashville, it would definitely make the Jackson Sun or Channel 7 News. I always check for local news when I read stuff on this board. Don't you? I have found some people on here just want to keep things stirred up on here for political reasons.
WTF?
Corona is tapering off.
Yep. Tapering right off. Texas only reporting 3,178 new cases and only 94 died of it in the whole state. Florida only 3,573 new cases and 62 newly departed. California lead today with 3,712 new cases but only 75 died. Tennessee dropped to 17th on new cases with just 942 new cases and stayed at 10th on dying with 20 Tennesseans dying today. We're not up there with Georgia, 2,284 new cases and tying Florida with 62 dying of it, today. A pretty good last Saturday of summer with only 657 killed by it in the whole country, unless you were one of the 657 or their families.

Take out covid and replace with getting killed by drunk drivers, lung cancer from smoking, being aborted.

People die.

Get used to it.

Yet just a few short years ago

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday flatly rejected any person President Barack Obama nominates to the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, saying the voters should decide.

If the Communists had been in a majority that would have been different.

The Americans hold the Senate, so they get to decide, the Communists can go fuck themselves.
Yes. And they can't cry rape this time. But they will try something. On the good side , there are no more Jeff Flakes on the Committee.

Yeah no reason except for what they did to Obama when he had every right to nominate someone to the court.
Oh he should wait for the election to be held and let the next president decide.

I am sure Trump will push for it and the line has been drawn
He did nominate someone. They weren’t approved.
True. Putting a stupid Leftie like Garland to replace Scalia? Did Big Ears REALLY think he could pass that off?

If by voters you mean the radical left then yes, I agree.
Otherwise most common folk are gonna look at all the shit going on in our nation right now, mostly caused by democrats and rectify that first.
NO, actually I was talking voters in general. Some people value fair play, and pushing through this time would not look like fair play, unless done after election, and trump won the election.
There is no fair play anymore. Kavanaugh hearings demonstrated that.

Jo

If the republicans nominated and appointed a replacement...that would be fair play since the rules....The Constitution.....give them that actual ability......

The democrats smearing Justice Kavanaugh was not fair play....obama using illegal FISA warrants to spy on Trump...was not fair play....obama using the FBI to destroy General Flynn...was not fair play......obama using the IRS to deny 501c3 status to conservative groups...was not fair play......the democrats impeaching Trump for a normal phone call...was not fair play...the democrats burning, looting, beating and murdering Americans and assassinating police officers.....is not fair play.

So White 6 can shove that "Fair Play," bullshit where the shun doesn't shine.....
Just sayin, since you are well aware how Moscow Mitch handled it 10 months out from election. If you do not want to see it as average voters, do the trumpian thing and don't look.
"Average" voters don't pay any attention to this shit. The percentage of people in this country who are actually informed is terribly low.
I have heard. So you think it will be a low volume presidential election?

At this point, the leftist hatred of Trump is so irrational he could nominate Obama and they'd fight it to the death.
You are absolutely right, this time. No way they will trust trump to make a moderate nominee, because they know he will not. He will put somebody that distinctly right of center. Somebody above said think of it like the Kavanaugh hearing, except with guns and knives. In the end, trumps nominee will be confirmed. It is what trump has to do, as any president would do. McConnell and the Senate will take the blame for pushing it through. Trump and 23 Republican Senators will be punished at the polls. Amazing, trump and McConnell (McConnell who blocked even a hearing on Obama's nominee 10 months out from an election) will just be playing the cards dealt, but they will be punished none the less, and Senate Republicans along with them.
Is Jake sharing his meth with you?

The left's hatred for Trump is so irrational, he could nominate Obama for the seat and they'd be outraged because it's what TRUMP! TROOOOOMP!!! wanted.
I gave a pretty rational answer. Maybe you have been hitting the drugs or drinking heavily. You are obviously filled with a lot of hate for a lot of people, so you think the majority hate trump as you hate the left. Guess average people just don't get as worked up as you. Probably like you guys keep saying they burned down cities, yet that's by in large BS too, except for a few block in a few specific cities, right?

Wrong? Yes.

Look at the discourse here. People who never leave their apartment are arguing over the best ways to manage a forest so it doesn't burn. There may be something like a few dozen true experts on the topic in the nation. You have even less people who are true experts on viral disease. That doesn't stop the "average" people here from weighing in on the best way to avoid covid.

If your point is/was that people don't pay attention...you're wrong.
If your point is/was that not understanding the topics will cause apathy...you're way wrong.

"Average" voters don't pay any attention to this shit. The percentage of people in this country who are actually informed is terribly low.
I have heard. So you think it will be a low volume presidential election?
Not at all.

Orange man bad will drive both sides to the polls regardless of their understanding of current events.

You think my analysis is wrong?
Wrong? Yes.

Look at the discourse here. People who never leave their apartment are arguing over the best ways to manage a forest so it doesn't burn. There may be something like a few dozen true experts on the topic in the nation. You have even less people who are true experts on viral disease. That doesn't stop the "average" people here from weighing in on the best way to avoid covid.

If your point is/was that people don't pay attention...you're wrong.
If your point is/was that not understanding the topics will cause apathy...you're way wrong.
Not bad.

This is going to start a whole new round of crazy!

At this point, the leftist hatred of Trump is so irrational he could nominate Obama and they'd fight it to the death.
You are absolutely right, this time. No way they will trust trump to make a moderate nominee, because they know he will not. He will put somebody that distinctly right of center. Somebody above said think of it like the Kavanaugh hearing, except with guns and knives. In the end, trumps nominee will be confirmed. It is what trump has to do, as any president would do. McConnell and the Senate will take the blame for pushing it through. Trump and 23 Republican Senators will be punished at the polls. Amazing, trump and McConnell (McConnell who blocked even a hearing on Obama's nominee 10 months out from an election) will just be playing the cards dealt, but they will be punished none the less, and Senate Republicans along with them.
Is Jake sharing his meth with you?

The left's hatred for Trump is so irrational, he could nominate Obama for the seat and they'd be outraged because it's what TRUMP! TROOOOOMP!!! wanted.
I gave a pretty rational answer. Maybe you have been hitting the drugs or drinking heavily. You are obviously filled with a lot of hate for a lot of people, so you think the majority hate trump as you hate the left. Guess average people just don't get as worked up as you. Probably like you guys keep saying they burned down cities, yet that's by in large BS too, except for a few block in a few specific cities, right?
You're introducing nuance. Blob supporters don't do nuance.
Maybe it will catch on. I have been married and had kids, bosses and suppliers for so long that I'm pretty comfortable knowing, darn near everything is nuanced and almost nothing clear cut. I can live with it.

You're both being the typical conceited fools you blame everyone else of being. And if you both believe the majority of this nations voters are clued into current events you're both dumber than i thought.

You go, Mitch!

No reason to not replace her now.


McConnell: Trump's Supreme Court nominee 'will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate'


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

Ginsburg, 87, died Friday from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer.

“The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life,” McConnell said in a statement Friday.

“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise,” McConnell continued. “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”

McConnell added that “by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary.”

“Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG DIES AT 87

In May 2019, McConnell, R-Ky., made clear that should a vacancy materialize in the midst of the 2020 election cycle, the GOP-majority Senate would likely “fill it.”
McConnell’s comments last year were met with criticism from Democrats who accused him of hypocrisy, based on the treatment of former President Barack Obamas Supreme Court nominee and D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals chief Judge Merrick Garland.

Obama nominated Garland to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away in 2016, but McConnell and Senate Republicans refused to hold a hearing or vote on his nomination, citing the imminent 2016 presidential election.

Speaking to Fox News last year, McConnell suggested his stance was not hypocritical -- because in 2020, Republicans would control both the White House and the Senate, unlike Democrats in 2016, who controlled only the White House.
Let’s not forget Mitch BLOCKED the senate from even having a vote on Garland even though it was blatantly unconstitutional. I’m sure republicans are thrilled at Ginsburg’s passing. Them winning is all that matters to them.

Oh and also don’t forget Mitch’s blatant hypocrisy about election years and voting on judges. He’s a sociopath without any principles.
Oh well, that was before you dems left the cat out of the bag . Anti American is what you are. Just think ? What would the dems do? They are always so eager to compromise , Right? No way Mitch. Put your heel on their windpipe.

McConnell is a corrupt bastard. This could be the final nail in the Republican coffin. Democrats will control the everything and they can expand the court.
What's wrong ? Dems lost so they now must change the rule?

You are an idiot.....it was perfectly constitutional, you moron....the Constitution does not say the Senate is a rubber stamp for Presidential nominees...it says advice and consent....they have the power to deny the nominee if they want....that is how the founders separated powers to diminish the acquisition of power by any one branch....you doofus.
So theoretically, the Senate could never appoint another justice or judge...ever in your world right?

There is a difference between denying a nominee--voting them down---and not having a vote at all.

Yep........that is how it was designed, it was a check on Presidential and Court power.......there is no difference....the Senate was given that power for a reason.
The Senate gave no Advise and Consent, as the Constitution dictates? So how was what Mitch did to nominee Garland, constitutional?
Nothing says the senate has to hold hearings. The republicans just quietly decided to deny Obama’s pick without allowing the democrats to have any theatrics.
