Judge Amy Coney Barrett is being applauded today after she confirmed that she responded to hours of grilling from the Senate Judiciary Committee without any notes.

Twitter Can’t Get Over Amy Coney Barrett’s ‘Unpleasant’ Voice

During Amy Coney Barret’s hearing, all people on Twitter can talk about is her voice. Many people found her voice to be rather ‘unpleasant’ and some even questioned if she was intentionally speaking that way.  Amy Coney Barret is a federal judge nominated by President Trump back in 2017. She is now at the top of President Trump’s list to be the new high court justice.  The comments about her voice came as soon as her opening statement began.  [embedded content] Her voice was compared to many things including a little girl which some found to be rather disturbing. Things like a bothersome voice can be distracting to some but what also seemed to be bothersome for people was her answers to questions that were being asked.  Twitter’s Reaction  The only way a woman with Amy Coney Barret's high pitched voice and habit of condescending lecturing tones gets as far as she did in our recalcitrant patriarchy is by being a stooge of the patriarchy. Take note. If she were a feminist she'd be facing so much misogyny. — pam berkeley (@pmberkeley) October 13, 2020 I was going to watch the Amy Coney Barret hearings but, wow, her voice. Is she deliberately using a baby voice? I know this is a superficial, somewhat sexist, comment, but her voice is actually giving me a headache. — 💛🐝😷🦚Molly says VOTE! ☮❤🌮🏳️‍🌈 (@CSSRMolly) October 13, 2020 All her legal views aside, I oppose the appointment of Amy Coney Barret to the Supreme Court on the grounds that her voice sounds like a freaking buzz saw! — 😷🤪 Marcus Herzig 🏳️‍🌈 (@Marcus_Herzig) October 13, 2020 Whitmer is not that high pitched and shrill. Goodness gracious. I know I have a midwestern/MI accent. But my ears can not take Amy Coney Barret’s voice at all. — Tired as hell Kel. #vote (@singoutkelli) October 13, 2020 I'm sorry but Amy Coney barret's voice is annoying to me. it's not even just the contents of what she's saying, it's the tone of her voice, some tones just irk me. at least it isn't trump's which gives me a migraine. — Norah 🐛 (@norah_027) October 13, 2020 Petty but, Amy Coney Barret has a terrible voice — Daphne Brogdon (@DaphBrog) October 13, 2020 Amy Coney Barrett Amy Coney Barret is a federal appellate judge. She is also a law professor at Notre Dame. Judge Barret is a conservative who President Trump has supported for a very long time. Her nomination was announced on Saturday at a ceremony at the White House Rose Garden. According to a CNN report, Amy Coney Barret and President Trump met to discuss the nomination on Monday.  The Senate Judiciary Committee began confirmation hearings on Amy Coney Barret’s nomination yesterday. Judge Barret was one of the finalists to be chosen for a Supreme Court spot back in 2018 but the spot ultimately went to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Liberals and Democratic senators do not support Amy Coney Barret because of her extreme right-wing views that threaten things like Roe v. Wade. There is fear that the potential successor to late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could reverse abortion rights and get rid of the Affordable Care Act.  During the hearing, Judge Barret made a point in saying, “I am not here on a mission to destroy the Affordable Care Act.”  After being questioned about Roe v. Wade and other cases, Barret tried to clarify the process by saying, “Judges can’t wake up one day and say, ‘I have an agenda, I like guns, I hate guns, I like abortion, I hate abortion,’ and walk in like a royal queen and impose their will on the world.” But Senator Diane Feinstein really to get an answer from Judge Amy Barret on her stance with abortion laws and she refused to answer multiple times. Amy Coney Barret clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia who has stated in the past that the court’s abortion precedents should be overturned.  Amy Coney Barret stated that the reason she does not want to answer the question on her position is that she doesn’t want people to think she leans a certain way when making decisions. “Whether I say I love it or I hate it, it signals to litigants that I may tilt one way of another in a pending case,” she stated.  Conservatives and far-right advocates have been very supportive of her possible nomination. Particularly, religious conservatives are enthusiastic about her writings on faith and the law.  Other Backlash From The Hearing  Backlash over her voice isn’t the only criticism Amy Conery Barret received. She explained how this process can take a toll on one’s mental health with such an extensive process.  When asked about why she accepted President Trump’s nomination she said, “This is a really difficult, some might say excruciating process. We knew that our lives would be comber over for any negative detail, we knew our faith would be caricatured, we knew our family would be attacked. What sane person would go through with that if there wasn’t a benefit on the other side?”   People on Twitter picked at more than just her voice during the hearing.  Amy Coney Barret never misses a chance to state that her Black children are adopted. — Marsha (@meshaiman) October 14, 2020 Man up and speak to your fellow Republicans. Amy Coney Barret is illegitimate . It’s for our new President to fill RBG place. We’ve all suffered under trumps PT Barnum act for 4 years. Are there NO decent Republicans left or must we vote every one OUT! Enough. Speak your truth! — lesliesusan2020 (@lesliesusan2020) October 14, 2020 im gonna start calling amy coney barret 'amy coney i hate women' — 𝘩𝘢𝘥𝘴 (@elzbthgillz) October 14, 2020 When Judge Coney Barret asked to guess the content of Sen Amy's brain pic.twitter.com/CW4GhYUiBq — Npi 🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴 (@npi343) October 14, 2020 While others are quite enthusiastic about her nomination.  Amy Coney Barret is literally the smartest person in a room full of smart people. Super impressed with how she handled herself and worked the room today. — Justin Wright (@justinwright055) October 14, 2020 Amy Coney Barret will be the next Supreme Court Justice. Repeat after me triggered and fragile Snowflakes, Amy Coney Barret will be the next Supreme Court Justice!!! #tcot — Brandon (@WILDMANBS) October 14, 2020 Funny how Amy Coney Barret is a strong woman, the epitome of a well rounded successful women, and yet the left wing doesn’t approve of her because she is more conservative and believes in the constitution. Crazy times man. — Hunter O'Brien (@BrienHunter) October 14, 2020 Democratic Senator Kamala Harris also had somethings to say about Judge Barret’s responses. Harris didn’t appreciate some of Amy Coney Barret’s answers like her refusal to talk about her views on abortion rights and Roe v. Wade.  Referring to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg she explains, “Justice Ginsburg did not tell the committee how she would vote in any particular case. But she did freely discuss how she viewed a woman’s right to choose. But Judge Barrett clearly shows you hold a different view.”  “If the Senate considers filling the seat of Justice Ruth Bade Ginsburg, who was straightforward enough in her confirmation hearing to say that the right to choose is ‘essential to women’s equality,’ I would suggest that we not pretend that we don’t know how this nominee views a woman’s right to choose to make her own health care decisions,” Senator Harris continues.  Amy Coney Barrett’s Hearing  Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barret was answering questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 11 hours. Today was the second day of the confirmation hearing.  Although she refused to answer questions about the potential ruling on cases, people fear that Amy Coney Barret will be closing doors that women like late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg have opened.   The final day of the confirmation hearing will be on Thursday where witnesses for and against Amy Coney Barret will be expected to testify.

Justice Sleeps and ‘We the People’ Suffer: No, the U.S. Supreme Court Will Not Save Us

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute.  “The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of the people.”—Justice William O. Douglas The U.S. Supreme Court will not save us. It doesn’t matter which party gets to pick the replacement to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. The battle that is gearing up right now is yet more distraction and spin to keep us oblivious to the steady encroachment on our rights by the architects of the American Police State. Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. Although the courts were established to serve as Courts of Justice, what we have been saddled with, instead, are Courts of Order. This is true at all levels of the judiciary, but especially so in the highest court of the land, the U.S. Supreme Court, which is seemingly more concerned with establishing order and protecting government interests than with upholding the rights of the people enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. As a result, the police and other government agents have been generally empowered to probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip, and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts. Rarely do the concerns of the populace prevail. When presented with an opportunity to loosen the government’s noose that keeps getting cinched tighter and tighter around the necks of the American people, what does our current Supreme Court usually do? It ducks. Prevaricates. Remains silent. Speaks to the narrowest possible concern. More often than not, it gives the government and its corporate sponsors the benefit of the doubt, which leaves “we the people” hanging by a thread. Rarely do the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court— preoccupied with their personal politics, cocooned in a world of privilege, partial to those with power, money, and influence, and narrowly focused on a shrinking docket (the court accepts on average 80 cases out of 8,000 each year)—venture beyond their rarefied comfort zones. Every so often, the justices toss a bone to those who fear they have abdicated their allegiance to the Constitution. Too often, however, the Supreme Court tends to march in lockstep with the police state. In recent years, for example, the Court has ruled that police officers can use lethal force in car chases without fear of lawsuits; police officers can stop cars based only on “anonymous” tips; Secret Service agents are not accountable for their actions, as long as they’re done in the name of “security”; citizens only have a right to remain silent if they assert it; police have free reign to use drug-sniffing dogs as “search warrants on leashes,” justifying any and all police searches of vehicles stopped on the roadside; police can forcibly take your DNA, whether or not you’ve been convicted of a crime; police can stop, search, question and profile citizens and non-citizens alike; police can subject Americans to virtual strip searches, no matter the “offense”; police can break into homes without a warrant, even if it’s the wrong home; and it’s a crime to not identify yourself when a policeman asks your name. The cases the Supreme Court refuses to hear, allowing lower court judgments to stand, are almost as critical as the ones they rule on. Some of these cases have delivered devastating blows to the lives and rights enshrined in the Constitution. By remaining silent, the Court has affirmed that: legally owning a firearm is enough to justify a no-knock raid by police; the military can arrest and detain American citizens; students can be subjected to random lockdowns and mass searches at school; and police officers who don’t know their actions violate the law aren’t guilty of breaking the law. You think you’ve got rights? Think again. All of those freedoms we cherish—the ones enshrined in the Constitution, the ones that affirm our right to free speech and assembly, due process, privacy, bodily integrity, the right to not have police seize our property without a warrant, or search and detain us without probable cause—amount to nothing when the government and its agents are allowed to disregard those prohibitions on government overreach at will. This is the grim reality of life in the American police state. In fact, our so-called rights have been reduced to technicalities in the face of the government’s ongoing power grabs. In the police state being erected around us, the police can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip, and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts. This is what one would call a slow death by a thousand cuts, only it’s the Fourth Amendment being inexorably bled to death by the very institution that is supposed to be protecting it (and us) from government abuse. Remember, it was a unanimous Supreme Court which determined that police officers may use drug-sniffing dogs to conduct warrantless searches of cars during routine traffic stops. That same Court gave police the green light to taser defenseless motorists, strip search non-violent suspects arrested for minor incidents, and break down people’s front doors without evidence that they have done anything wrong. Make no mistake about it: this is what constitutes “law and order” in the American police state. These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state, where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens. Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip-searching motorists on the side of the road, in a police state such as ours, these instances of abuse are not condemned by the government. Rather, they are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution. The system is rigged. Because the system is rigged and the U.S. Supreme Court—the so-called “people’s court”—has exchanged its appointed role as a gatekeeper of justice for its new role as maintainer of the status quo, the police state will keep winning and “we the people” will keep losing. By refusing to accept any of the eight or so qualified immunity cases before it this past term that strove to hold police accountable for official misconduct, the Supreme Court delivered a chilling reminder that in the American police state, ‘we the people’ are at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to ‘serve and protect.” This is how qualified immunity keeps the police state in power. Lawyers tend to offer a lot of complicated, convoluted explanations for the doctrine of qualified immunity, which was intended to insulate government officials from frivolous lawsuits, but the real purpose of qualified immunity is to rig the system, ensuring that abusive agents of the government almost always win and the victims of government abuse almost always lose. How else do you explain a doctrine that requires victims of police violence to prove that their abusers knew their behavior was illegal because it had been deemed so in a nearly identical case at some prior time? It’s a setup for failure. A review of critical court rulings over the past several decades, including rulings affirming qualified immunity protections for government agents by the U.S. Supreme Court, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order, protecting the ruling class, and insulating government agents from charges of wrongdoing than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution. Indeed, as Reuters reports, qualified immunity “has become a nearly failsafe tool to let police brutality go unpunished and deny victims their constitutional rights.” Worse, as Reuters concluded, “the Supreme Court has built qualified immunity into an often insurmountable police defense by intervening in cases mostly to favor the police.” For those in need of a reminder of all the ways in which the Supreme Court has made us sitting ducks at the mercy of the American police state, let me offer the following. As a result of court rulings in recent years, police can claim qualified immunity for warrantless searches. Police can claim qualified immunity for warrantless arrests based on mere suspicion. Police can claim qualified immunity for using excessive force against protesters. Police can claim qualified immunity for shooting a fleeing suspect in the back. Police can claim qualified immunity for shooting a mentally impaired person. Police officers can use lethal force in car chases without fear of lawsuits. Police can stop, arrest, and search citizens without reasonable suspicion or probable cause.  Police officers can stop cars based on “anonymous” tips or for “suspicious” behavior such as having a reclined car seat or driving too carefully. Police can forcibly take your DNA, whether or not you’ve been convicted of a crime.  Police can use the “fear for my life” rationale as an excuse for shooting unarmed individuals. Police have free reign to use drug-sniffing dogs as “search warrants on leashes.” Not only are police largely protected by qualified immunity, but police dogs are also off the hook for wrongdoing. Police can subject Americans to strip searches, no matter the “offense.” Police can break into homes without a warrant, even if it’s the wrong home. Police can use knock-and-talk tactics as a means of sidestepping the Fourth Amendment. Police can carry out no-knock raids if they believe announcing themselves would be dangerous. Police can recklessly open fire on anyone that might be “armed.” Police can destroy a home during a SWAT raid, even if the owner gives their consent to enter and search it. Police can suffocate someone, deliberately or inadvertently, in the process of subduing them. To sum it up, we are dealing with a nationwide epidemic of court-sanctioned police violence carried out with impunity against individuals posing little or no real threat. In this way, the justices of the United States Supreme Court—through their deference to police power, preference for security over freedom, and evisceration of our most basic rights for the sake of order and expediency—have become the architects of the American police state. So where does that leave us? For those deluded enough to believe that they’re living the American dream—where the government represents the people, where the people are equal in the eyes of the law, where the courts are arbiters of justice, where the police are keepers of the peace, and where the law is applied equally as a means of protecting the rights of the people—it’s time to wake up. We no longer have a representative government, a rule of law, or justice. Liberty has fallen to legalism. Freedom has fallen to fascism. Justice has become jaded, jaundiced, and just plain unjust. And for too many, the American dream of freedom and opportunity has turned into a living nightmare. Given the turbulence of our age, with its police overreach, military training drills on American soil, domestic surveillance, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, wrongful convictions, profit-driven prisons, and corporate corruption, the need for a guardian of the people’s rights has never been greater. Yet as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, neither the president, nor the legislatures, nor the courts will save us from the police state that holds us in its clutches. So we can waste our strength over the next few weeks and months raging over the makeup of the Supreme Court or we can stand united against the tyrant in our midst. After all, the president, the legislatures, and the courts are all on the government’s payroll. They are the police state.

More Preplanned Election Chaos: Trump Says The Supreme Court Will “Sort Out” The Election

Mac SlavoSeptember 24th, 2020SHTFplan.com The preplanned election chaos is ramping up.  President Donald Trump says it’s important to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court because the “highest court” will have to “sort out” the presidential election, and it’s important to have nine justices. They are advertising an election that will be the fall of this country. It will not matter who wins.  This will be ugly, they have promised us that already. Neither side will accept defeat, and both sides are going to make sure this plan plays out. Trump has also made comments calling the Democrats’ efforts to expand voting by mail “a scam” and “a hoax,” adding that having the full Supreme Court bench would be “very important” because of that. “I think this will end up in the Supreme Court. And I think it’s important we have nine justices,” Trump told reporters on Wednesday, at a roundtable with state attorneys-general at the White House. Trump seemed determined to fill Ginsburg’s seat before the election because he wants to make sure the court is on his side if/when this contested political theatre goes all the way to the top. When asked about the timing of the confirmation, he said it was “better if you go before the election” and that it would be “fairly quick.” Democrats are opposed to any nomination, arguing that Republican refusal to consider President Barack Obama’s nomination in 2016 has set a precedent for SCOTUS nominations in an election year. Republicans have countered that their refusal to consider Merrick Garland was different, because the Senate and the White House were not controlled by the same party, as they are now. –RT Trump will likely be successful in filling Ginsburg’s seat which will cause an uproar and further advance the division between the right and left. This could end in horrible violence if we don’t realize what’s going on.  Both sides in the left vs. right paradigm are saying that they won’t accept the election results and their followers will get overly angry about which president is selected this November. And it’s all preplanned. This is by design. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4!

Chants of ‘Vote Him Out’ Break Out as Trump Pays His Respects To Ginsburg at SCOTUS

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump went to the Supreme Court this week to pay their respects to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but it was met with resistance from those who were mourning the late justice. When the president arrived at the Supreme Court, those who were there began booing then chanted, “Vote him out!” Shortly after the chant started, the president and first lady could be seen walking away. Watch the video below: JUST IN: Pres. Trump arrives at the Supreme Court to pay respects to judicial icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as onlookers shout "Vote him out!" https://t.co/Isvic44Ag5 pic.twitter.com/452rZ0hDjA — ABC News (@ABC) September 24, 2020 Ginsburg died at the age of 87 on Sept. 18 from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer. The public is able to pay tribute to her at the Supreme Court, and Friday she will make history as the first woman to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol. Chief Justice John Roberts said at a private ceremony on Wednesday, “Her voice in court and in our conference room was soft. But when she spoke, people listened.” The boos the president received on Thursday come as Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers have pushed for a nominee and vote to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court. This has been met with opposition from Democrats. The president has said that he will announce his nominee on Saturday.

Bad Blood From Kavanaugh Confirmation May Resurface in US Senate Hearings

The bitter confirmation battle over President Donald Trump’s last Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, looms large for the Senate Judiciary Committee as it prepares for fresh hearings on the Republican’s third lifetime appointment to the top court. Two personalities could stand out in hearings expected in the coming weeks: Republican Committee Chairman Senator Lindsey Graham, who mounted a booming defense of Kavanaugh, and Democratic Senator Kamala Harris, running mate to Joe Biden, Trump’s rival in the Nov. 3 election. Tensions in the Senate are high as the Republican-controlled chamber seeks to vote on the nominee before the election, and cement a 6-3 conservative majority. Trump is expected to name either Amy Coney Barrett or Barbara Lagoa, both conservative appeals court judges, on Saturday. Graham is a Trump ally who says he’s still “pissed” about Democrats’ 2018 treatment of Kavanaugh over decades-old allegations that he sexually assaulted a high school companion when they were both teenagers. Kavanaugh denied the allegations and was narrowly confirmed. “What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020,” Graham thundered at Democrats during a 2018 hearing on Kavanaugh. Graham said the treatment of Kavanaugh and others made him resolve to press ahead, despite having insisted in 2018 that he would not do such a thing if an opening came up in the last year of Trump’s term. Republicans in 2016 refused to vote on a nominee from Democratic President Barack Obama, saying it was improper to do so in an election year. “When it comes to Republican nominees for the Court – they get slaughtered,” Graham told Fox News Radio on Tuesday. “I’m tired of this crap.” But Graham is also facing a stiff re-election battle in his home state of South Carolina in November, and his Democratic opponent Jaime Harrison has been quick to accuse him of hypocrisy for his changing stance on handling court nominees. Another prominent committee member is Harris, whose tough questioning of Kavanaugh about reproductive rights went viral on social media in 2018. “Can you think of any laws that give government the power to make decisions about the male body?” Harris asked Kavanaugh. He said he could not. Trump last month said Harris was “nasty” and “horrible” in her treatment of Kavanaugh. The senator did not comment to reporters in the Capitol Wednesday when asked if she intends to attend the hearing and question Trump’s nominee. SHOULD DEMOCRATS STAY AWAY? Given Republicans’ 53-47 majority in the chamber, Democrats have no way of blocking a quick confirmation of a Trump nominee, even though two Republican senators have voiced objections. Some Democrats have suggested their colleagues should boycott the proceedings, though senior Senate Democrats have rejected the idea. “Those hearings are critically important to understand nominees and how nominees think,” Senator Richard Durbin, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat and a member of the judiciary committee, told reporters in the Capitol this week. Along with Harris, two other former Democratic presidential contenders on the judiciary committee are Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Cory Booker of New Jersey. Klobuchar, another former prosecutor like Harris, notably tangled with Kavanaugh when she questioned him about his drinking habits. While Trump is expected to pick a woman, there are three male senators on the panel who are on Trump’s wider list of possible Supreme Court picks: Republicans Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Josh Hawley of Missouri. Graham is far from the only Republican member of the committee who has to worry about an election back home this fall while negotiating the tricky terrain of the confirmation hearings. Senators Tom Tillis of North Carolina and Joni Ernst of Iowa, both in close races for re-election, are considered among the Senate’s most vulnerable Republicans. Senator John Cornyn also has a serious Democratic challenger in Texas.

Trump Says He Thinks 2020 Election Results ‘Will End Up in the Supreme Court’

President Donald Trump believes the 2020 election “will end up before the Supreme Court” and that he feels it’s best to have nine justices sitting on the Court before the election. During a roundtable on Wednesday, Trump was asked repeatedly about the Supreme Court, which has eight justices after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump told reporters, “I think this will end up in the Supreme Court and I think it’s very important that we have nine justices.” He added, “I think the system’s going to go very quickly.” The president said that he will be announcing his nomination for the seat on Saturday afternoon. He told reporters, “We have a lot of time. You have before the election and then you have after the election too. But in terms of time, we go to January 20th.” Trump also attacked Democrats saying, “I think it’s better if you go before the election because this scam that the Democrats are pulling — it’s a scam — this scam will be before the United States Supreme Court and I think having a 4-4 situation is not a good situation if you get that.” He added, “I think it’s very important to have a ninth justice.” .@POTUS: "I think this will end up in the Supreme Court. & I think it's very important that we have 9 Justices. & I think the system is going to go very quickly. I'll be submitting at 5 o'clock on Saturday, the name of the person I chose for this most important of positions." pic.twitter.com/v1veiqU2Mm — CSPAN (@cspan) September 23, 2020 President Trump seems assured to be able to easily push his Supreme Court justice through the Senate. Without the votes to block his nominee, Democrats will be powerless to stop him. On Tuesday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who has been willing to break with the president previously said that he will support a vote on Trump’s nominee. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said this week that Senate Republicans have the votes necessary to hold put Trump’s nominee on the Supreme Court before the election. Meanwhile, Democratic nominee Joe Biden has said that if he wins the November election, he believes that Trump’s nominee should be withdrawn.

The pagans lost their intellectual heavyweight. Now what?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a tyrant and wrong on every significant issue. But make no mistake, she was highly intelligent and certainly a worthy rival for the soul of a nation. What will become in the wake of her demise? In truth, the pagans loved the Notorious RBG, but how many could articulate her tenure on the highest court other than the fact that she was a feminist. Put more bluntly people love the Notorious RBG because it is cool to love her. But the idolatry surrounding RBG was not one she necessarily invited upon herself. She was not big on emotionalism, and emotionalism is what the Left has become. The arguments made by the Pagan leftists have increasingly become anti-intellectual with the rise of Critical Theory. As I describe in great detail, their priestess Robin DiAngelo consistently employs the non-falsifiable fallacy. She’s an intellectual lightweight, yet her book is within their canon. She rakes in five figures per speaking engagement. So with Ginsburg gone, is the Left doomed to see more DiAngelos and fewer Ginsburgs? Are Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan capable of taking up that mantle? Being a white male, I doubt Stephen Breyer is. But if the left wanted intellectual idols in politics outside the Supreme Court, who would they turn to? Their ideological champions at the moment include Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Bernie Sanders. However, Elizabeth Warren is certainly a policy wonk. But it’s fair to say had Elizabeth Warren the ability to achieve pagan god status, she would probably have fared better in the primaries. We are already seeing the unstoppable wave of emotionalism in the pagan community. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was perhaps the last vestige of logic to a movement that believes “I emote. Therefore, I am.” The movement that is continually pushing the envelop of sedition and revolution has no clear need for replacing high capacity legal minds. After all, the endgame of Critical Theory is to expand the proletariat for some sort of neo-Marxist revolution. And at such occasion, the Left would have no use for their Notorious RBG. Perhaps it is mercy that Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not live to see the monster she helped create turn on her. But it’s clear that the death of an idol has emboldened the lawlessness that Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not support to complete the takeover of the pagan movement she emboldened.

Planned Parenthood Launches Swing State Ad Campaign To Oppose Trump Filling Ginsburg’s Seat

As Republicans and Democrats battle over whether or not to fill the Supreme Court vacancy that opened up in the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, various organizations are working to gin up support or opposition to filling the vacancy. Planned Parenthood announced that it is launching an ad campaign against filling the seat that will target several swing states, including Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. “An American icon. A champion of women’s rights. Donald Trump wants to replace her with another Supreme Court justice before the election, against her dying wish,” a narrator says in the ad. The narration continues, “Threatening coverage for preexisting conditions and reproductive freedom, just like he said he would. We can’t let it happen. Not to her legacy. Not to her seat. Not to our health. Not now. Not ever.” Finally, the ad implores viewers, “Take action. Vote.”  Watch the ad below: [embedded content] President Donald Trump has said he plans to announce a nominee to the Supreme Court on Saturday, and that he would like the Senate to hold his confirmation vote before the election.  However, Democrats have urged their Republican colleagues to hold off on confirming a nominee before the election, as IJR reported.  The Supreme Court currently has a 5-3 conservative majority. However, if Republicans confirm Trump’s nominee, it could alter the balance of the court for decades. In a statement, Jenny Lawson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, said, “This is the fight of our lives for tens of millions of people across the country. A week after the election, the Supreme Court is set to hear a case that could dismantle the Affordable Care Act, the biggest advance for sexual and reproductive health in a generation.” “If Trump succeeds in filling this seat, his pick could be the deciding vote on civil rights, environmental protections, and access to health care, including abortion,” she continued. Finally, she said, “If we are to protect Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy, our health, and our rights, we must kick Donald Trump out of office and take back the Senate. Planned Parenthood Votes and our supporters will not rest until we do.” As of Tuesday evening, it appears that Senate Republicans have the votes to confirm Trump’s nominee.

Supreme Court myths and absurdities from Democrats

With Pavlovian predictability, leftist Democrats have gone into full lunacy mode in the immediate aftermath of the announcement of Ruth Ginsburg’s passing. And just as predictable is the universally fraudulent nature of absolutely everything they are proclaiming. Their goal is singular: Prevent President Trump at all costs from nominating a pro-Constitution jurist to the High Court. But they’re Democrats. So of course they cannot afford to be honest about it. Still, in all of their lies and posturing, they inadvertently reveal who they are, and what their despicable agenda portends for the nation if they ever get into power. So the ugliness lurking behind all of their grandstanding needs to be exposed and considered in its true light. Perhaps the most ghoulish fraud (so far) has been the purported letter from Ginsburg, in which she ostensibly claimed that she wanted her successor to be named by someone other than President Trump. This transparent effort to “tug at the heartstrings of America” has already been endorsed by none other than the embodiment of phony moralizing himself, Barack Obama. Even if this scam were real, it would only serve to spotlight the abhorrence of Ginsburg’s actual “legacy.” It is wholly without merit, or any basis in the Constitution, and in fact would represent a gross departure from that founding Charter of our nation if anyone were so unprincipled and foolish as to actually abide by it. But more significantly, it represents the exact manner in which Ginsburg actually conducted herself (and in the process disgraced her oath of office) during her time on the Court. From the moment of her confirmation in 1993, Ginsburg showed flagrant and continual contempt for the Constitution of the United States, and instead was the most reliable leftist activist on the Court. Her decisions, based not on any constitutional principle but solely on political ideology, were virtually 100% predictable before even a single oral argument was heard. Clearly she saw her station not as a guardian of the American ideal, but as an autocratic post with zero accountability, much more akin to “royalty” than to the preservation of the principles of our Republic. So it stands to reason that as her last effort in this life, she might try to manipulate the system in order to determine her successor. Concurrent with that sad parody, the panic and hysterics of the leftist Democrats and their dutiful minions in the Fake News has been just as unsurprising, and just as transparently pathetic. In textbook leftist Alinksy fashion, every Democrat with access to a microphone has been attempting to make the claim, with effusive self-aggrandizing “virtue,” that preventing President Trump from picking the nominee is somehow in the best interests of our great nation. It isn’t! Such a course would only benefit the abhorrent and dangerous leftist agenda. Leftist Democrats tout the supposed need for a mythical “balance” on the Court. But they never truly reveal the nature of that “balance,” or between which contrasting governing ideologies it should bridge. If the Court were to function as intended by the Founders, there would be no “balance” in it whatsoever. It would stand above anything political, as the arbiter and protector of the integrity of the Constitution as ratified and amended. The nominees from both parties should rightly be devoted to this end above any other motivation. Sadly, reality paints a far less noble picture, particularly among the Democrats. While a pro-Constitution Court is intended to be the guarantor of the rights and freedoms of all Americans, on that basis alone it is an obstacle to the leftist Democrat agenda. In recent years, the Court has degenerated into a Democrat weapon (when dominated by leftist activist “justices”) by which to circumvent the law, and trample the rights and freedoms of decent Americans. So when the Democrats speak of “balance,” they actually seek to establish sufficient political clout from the Court, in order to bypass the rest of the legislative process. And that presents the gravest of dangers to our Nation’s future. Ultimately, all of the hysterics and grandstanding of the leftist Democrats do not reflect positively on them, and can actually be a huge liability if Republicans respond properly to all of it. Those on the right should, as loudly as possible, make the case that their intent is to uphold the Constitution as written and ratified, and to oppose any leftist Democrat effort to undermine that defining principle of our nation. From that point forward, every Democrat rant against the effort to install a new, pro-Constitution jurist on the Court should be just as loudly characterized as an attack on that effort to preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Certain Democrat players are already wary of the liability this poses to them. Public recognition of where they actually stand would be hugely detrimental to their efforts to paint themselves as paragons of patriotism and virtue. It is precisely for this reason that the Biden puppet-masters have no intention of releasing any list of prospective nominees. Doing so would instantly unmask their leftist activist objectives for the Court. Thankfully, President Trump is already framing the debate in just such terms. In response the rancor and venom of leftist Democrats is increasing. And that can ultimately be used for the good of our nation. Let the Democrats hurl their accusations that upholding the Constitution is “divisive” and “partisan.” Given the flagrant animosity of the leftist Democrats towards the greatness of our America in recent years, fighting for America is indeed a “partisan” mission. And they are on the wrong side of it. Bio Christopher G. Adamo is a lifelong conservative from the American Heartland. He has been involved in grassroots and state-level politics for years.

Run on accomplishments, not promises. Fill the seat.

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg presents the opportunity of a lifetime to shift the balance of the Supreme Court. Despite what the media will almost always insist, there are not five conservatives on the Supreme Court. In fact, I would only count Alito and Thomas as conservatives. Gorsuch has proven not to be a conservative on the bench in his first three years, and Kavanaugh is perhaps an improvement from Kennedy but nowhere near Alito. And if John Roberts betrays us on every issue of significance, how can it be said he is one of us. Previously, the court was four Leftists, three swing votes, and two solid conservatives. Now the communists on the Supreme Court are reduced to three with their intellectual heavyweight gone. President Trump is left with a predicament. He must choose between political expedience or political decorum. And with the nation in the midst of a cold civil war, the choice could not be clearer. Fill the seat. And do so before the election. This election could go down a number of ways and shenanigans and Tomfoolery are to be expected with the chaos of mail-in ballots. This election, like 2000, could be decided by the Supreme Court and a gridlocked decision would leave the appellate ruling in place. The next president is not something to gamble on an appellate court ruling should it come to that. But, as I stated before, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to shift the balance of the Supreme Court, one we have not had in several decades. Not only is it imperative to replace the intellectual heavyweight of our adversaries, but it is most necessary and beneficial to do so prior to the election. We are losing the fight for the soul of our country and fake conservatives like David “Vichy” French and Jonah Goldberg argue that we should take a knee on 1st and goal instead of driving the ball in for a touchdown. This idea of negotiating against yourself could be a generational blunder. In 2016, Republicans were stupid in claiming we should not confirm Merrick Garland in an election year, when the reality is that we should not be allowing Antonin Scalia be replaced with a Marxist. But Lindsay Graham, I suppose, needed to appeal to some nonsense to cover up the fact he would have voted to confirm Merrick Garland just as he had Obama’s other two Justices. But Republicans should confirm Trump’s nominee before the election precisely because of the election. The consultant class of Republicans will argue that we need to dangle the nominee like a carrot to drive turnout. But this is obvious manipulation. It’s clear Trump’s base wants the replacement confirmed ASAP. 2016, like 2012 and 2008 were base election. Trump turned out his base and Hillary Clinton did not. If Trump wants to turn out his base, score big by replacing their idol with a conservative. I should not have to remind anyone that Trump is an incumbent. He cannot simply run on promises. He must run on accomplishments. And to date, there have been too few for my liking. The wall is in progress, but Obamacare remains. The swamp needs massive draining, which includes handcuffs. And I am not enamored with Trump’s two SCOTUS appointees; neutering John Robert’s ability to be the swing vote on the highest court in the land will solidify Trump’s legacy and service to our cause. Many conservatives reluctantly voted for Trump to ensure Scalia and any other justice would be replaced with someone who revered the Constitution. We knew the possibility of Trump being able to appoint three or four to the Supreme Court in his first term. Now, we finally have an open slot to shift the balance of the court in our favor. This is more imperative than the election. The Prime Directive of our cause is to save our country. And so with Vulcan shrewdness we must fill this vacancy. And the irony is this will not come at a great cost, Trump can campaign on his SCOTUS appointees and Americans his base will turn out ecstatic on election day.

Sen. Graham: Senate GOP Has the Votes To Confirm SCOTUS Replacement Before the Election

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is claiming Senate Republicans have enough votes to confirm a replacement following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This comes amid a fight between Republicans and Democrats on whether to quickly push a nominee in an effort to fill the Supreme Court vacancy ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday evening, Graham said of Democrats, “It’s pretty obvious that if they want an outcome, they’ll just destroy anybody’s life to keep the seats open.” He continued to blast congressional Democrats, saying, “They said they tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh so they could fill the seat — they were dumb enough to say that.” “I’ve seen this movie before. It’s not going to work, it didn’t work with Kavanaugh,” the South Carolina lawmaker added. The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman then suggested that Republicans “got the votes” to confirm a justice: “We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election. We’re going to move forward in the committee, we’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election. That’s the constitutional process.” Watch Graham’s interview below: [embedded content] Graham has come under fire for backing President Donald Trump in filling the Supreme Court vacancy. People gathered outside his Washington, D.C., home early Monday to protest, where some signs called the lawmaker out for his previous remarks back in 2016. In 2016, Graham said, “I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.” However, he pushed back against those criticizing him, as he tweeted on Sunday, “Being lectured by Democrats about how to handle judicial nominations is like an arsonist advising the Fire Department.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted congressional Republicans for being “disrespectful” in moving ahead on Friday, the same night Ginsburg died, in vowing to vote on her replacement. She said during an MSNBC interview Monday, “It’s important to uphold the Constitution of the United States. It should be done with care, whoever the president is. So, the hypocrisy of the Republicans on this is really not important in people’s daily lives, but it is indicative that they don’t keep their word.” Pelosi added, “They want to get it done so they can overturn the Affordable Care Act. And you know what?  They’re going to be paying this price for elections to come, elections to come. Everyone is looking at what makes a difference in these senatorial races. We’ll see. But what they don’t really understand is they’re going to see 2018 again and again and again in terms of defeats in the Congress.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley Tosses His Support Behind Filling SCOTUS Vacancy

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) announced that he supports filling the Supreme Court seat left open with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the 2020 election. Grassley, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement on Monday, “In 2016, with an open seat on the U.S. Supreme Court and a window into the type of justice he’d nominate, the American people elected Donald Trump president of the United States.” He added, “In 2018, having witnessed President Trump appoint two justices to the Court, as well as the ugly tactics deployed by Senate Democrats during the confirmation process, the American people reaffirmed their support for the President by expanding the Republican majority in the Senate, the body tasked with evaluating the President’s nominees to the court.” Grassley continued, “Over the years, and as recently as July, I’ve consistently said that taking up and evaluating a nominee in 2020 would be a decision for the current chairman of the Judiciary Committee and the Senate Majority Leader. Both have confirmed their intentions to move forward, so that’s what will happen. […]  In this case the people have spoken, putting power to appoint and confirm a nominee to the Supreme Court in one party.” “While there was ambiguity about the American people’s will for the direction of the Supreme Court in 2016 under a divided government, there is no such ambiguity in 2020.” But Democrats have spent the past few days resurfacing clips from 2016 in which Republicans defended blocking Merrick Garland, the judge that President Barack Obama nominated to the Supreme Court in 2016. In April of 2016, Grassley said, “The American people should be afforded the opportunity to weigh in on this very important matter.” He continued at the time, “Our side, meaning the Republican side, believes very strongly that the people deserve to be heard and they should be allowed to decide through their vote for the next president, the type of person that should be on the Supreme Court.” See his past remarks below: pic.twitter.com/yiAmCH2dOq — Senate Democrats (@SenateDems) September 22, 2020 Grassley is not the only Republican Senator who defended keeping a court vacancy through the 2016 election but is now pushing to fill the vacancy less than two months before the 2020 presidential election. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also defended that decision, but when accused of hypocrisy, Graham quipped, “Being lectured by Democrats about how to handle judicial nominations is like an arsonist advising the Fire Department.”

McConnell Declares There Is ‘More Than Sufficient Time’ To Confirm Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is showing no signs of caving to pressure to hold off on filling the Supreme Court vacancy that opened up in the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. During his first speech on the Senate floor since the court announced Ginsburg’s death, McConnell said, “President Trump’s nominee for this vacancy will receive a vote on the floor of the Senate.” He continued to claim that “the same individuals who tried every conceivable dirty trick to obstruct Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh are lining up to proclaim the third time will be the charm.” “The American people are about to witness an astonishing parade of misrepresentations about the past, misstatements about the present, and more threats against our institutions from the same people… who’ve already been saying for months they want to pack the Court,” he added. Watch the video below: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: "President Trump's nominee for this vacancy will receive a vote on the floor of the Senate." https://t.co/58wHr1kiD0 pic.twitter.com/cTjrpAKjuG — ABC News (@ABC) September 21, 2020 The Supreme Court announced on Friday that Ginsburg, 87, died due to complications from pancreatic cancer, as IJR reported. Her death and the vacancy that has opened up on the court has touched off a new political battle over whether Republicans in the Senate should move to hold hearings and a confirmation vote on President Donald Trump’s nominee. Democrats have strongly warned Republicans against pushing through a confirmation with just over a month left till the election. However, McConnell said, “We’re already hearing incorrect claims that there is not enough time to examine and confirm a nominee. We can debunk this myth in about 30-seconds.” “As of today, there are 43-days until November 3 and 104-days until the end of this Congress. The late, iconic, Justice John Paul Stevens was confirmed by the Senate 19-days after this body formally received his nomination,” he continued.  McConnell also noted that Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s confirmation process took 33-days, and Ginsburg’s confirmation process took 42 days.  “Justice Stevens’ entire confirmation process could have been played out twice, twice, between now and November 3, with time to spare,” he said. Finally, McConnell argued, “The Senate has more than sufficient time to process a nomination. History and precedent make that perfectly clear.”  Mitch McConnell: "The Senate has more than sufficient time to process a nomination.

Still, some Senate Republicans voiced their desire to move forward with the confirmation process “without delay.”

Manchin Voices Opposition To Voting on a Supreme Court Nomine Before the Election

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) is speaking out to oppose holding a confirmation vote on a Supreme Court nominee before the November 3 general election.  As Republicans appear poised to move forward with the confirmation process on President Donald Trump’s forthcoming Supreme Court nominee, Democrats say the process should wait until after the election. In a statement on Monday, Manchin said, “For the sake of the integrity of our courts and legal system, I do not believe the U.S. Senate should vote on a U.S. Supreme Court nominee before the November, 3, election.” “For Mitch McConnell and my Republican colleagues to rush through this process after refusing to even meet with Judge Merrick Garland in 2016 is hypocrisy in its highest form,” he added. He also warned that “pursuing an overtly partisan approach to confirming a Supreme Court Justice will only deepen the political tribalism we are witnessing across this country.” “I implore every Senator, regardless of party, to honor their responsibility to act in a manner that brings this country together rather than feed a cycle of endless political division,” he added. Read his statement below: Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) opposes a vote on a Supreme Court nominee before the election.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Monday that there is “more than sufficient time to process a nomination,” as IJR reported. Citing Republicans’ decision in 2016 to hold open a vacancy on the Supreme Court until after the election, Democrats have urged their colleagues to wait until after the 2020 election to hold a confirmation vote. It’s unclear if Republicans will have enough votes to confirm a nominee before the election. Currently, they hold a 53-47 seat majority in the Senate. So far, two Republican senators have voiced their opposition to holding a confirmation vote before the election, meaning Republicans can only afford to lose one more vote to confirm a nominee and have Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote. Otherwise, they would need Democratic support to confirm the nominee.

Conspiracy Theorist Jacob Wohl Crashes RBG Vigil

A group of conservative conspiracy theorists interrupted a vigil for Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death on September 18, 2020. "When I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough women on the supreme court? And I say ‘When there are nine.’ People are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that." Rest in Peace RBG ? pic.twitter.com/uKDqg0Rk7K — The Female Lead (@the_female_lead) September 19, 2020 Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an American jurist who served from 1993 until her passing. She was originally nominated by Bill Clinton during his presidency. Ginsburg served as an associate justice for nearly two decades before her recent death. Her legacy and work is incredibly important for women. However, RBG touched the lives of many people of all genders, backgrounds and cultures.  RBG will always be a woman I will look up to & who has inspired me to be unapologetically myself in every way — madeline gautreaux (@_madelinelle_) September 18, 2020 Because of RBG, I could do anything I wanted to do.

There was an act of hate that occurred the same night as her death. Unfortunately, a disrespectful duo took the attention away from a very emotional and unfortunate day in history.  Late Friday night, the day of RBG’s passing, many people decided to pay their respects in Washington D.C. and honor the late justice’s legacy. The night was off to a peaceful start until conspiracists decided to ruin it.  Far-right trash Jacob Wohl went to the Supreme Court to tell RBG mourners that "Roe v.

Those who were honoring her life and legacy respectfully tried to overpower them with their voices…and it worked. After love outweighed the hate, Wohl and Burkman vanished.  A video almost instantly went viral of Wohl and Burkman shouting unnecessary and inconsiderate remarks about RBG. Wohl mentioned that “Roe v Wade is dead” and ultimately caused chaos to erupt. People started fighting and going back and forth with the rude theorists and as a result, what started out as a beautifully peaceful night went south very fast.

This caused an ongoing conversation to spark on social media. Many were discussing how disrespectful and rude the two theorists were the night of her passing while others defended them and claimed they were exercising their first amendment rights.  It seems as though the overall conversation on social media was how terrified people are that she will be replaced before the election. However, internet trolls did continue to make disrespectful and offensive comments regardless of that.  Really the most disgusting thing is that a serial assaulter of women, the worst misogynist president, would name the replacement of RBG. We just cannot let that stand. #diefighting — Neera -Vote Early- Tanden (@neeratanden) September 19, 2020 It is becoming more and more evident that people like Jacob Wohl truly exist and aim to spread hate in the world. In the video, Wohl even says that Ginsburg was a “horrible justice” and people looked mortified.  He was using some sort of mini-megaphone to amplify himself, but the voices of others chanting powerfully around him were even louder than his device. Countless Twitter users came to RBG’s defense and only a few individuals bothered to fight them. It became apparent that regardless of political views, the overwhelming majority agreed that crashing a vigil is simply disrespectful and immature behavior.  At the vigil, many lit candles, left flowers, sang and even prayed to honor the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  A large crowd has gathered outside the Supreme Court to mourn the loss of RGB. pic.twitter.com/3UT1IpNAf3 — Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) September 19, 2020 A large group took part in singing “Imagine” by John Lennon together.  Previously, Jacob Wohl was banned from Twitter back in 2019.

Key GOP Senator Reveals He Will Vote for a ‘Qualified’ Supreme Court Nominee

A key Republican senator says he would vote to confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy that opened up in the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. On Monday evening, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said in a statement, “When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how best to fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent.” “I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect our Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added. Read Gardner’s statement below: Read my full statement on the Supreme Court vacancy ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/n2YNP8O0Bz — Cory Gardner (@SenCoryGardner) September 21, 2020 Republicans currently hold a 53-47 seat majority in the Senate and can afford to lose three senators to confirm Trump’s nominee. If three senators vote against confirming the president’s nominee, Vice President Mike Pence can cast the tie-breaking vote. So far, Republican Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) have voiced their opposition to holding a confirmation vote before the election, as IJR reported.  “For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election. Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed,” Murkowski said. She added, “I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Scalia. We are now even closer to the 2020 election – less than two months out – and I believe the same standard must apply.” Gardner, who is running for re-election, is considered one of the more endangered Republican incumbents this year. Another senator who could impact the outcome of the confirmation vote is Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah). So far, he has not stated whether he would or would not vote to confirm a nominee before the election. Despite the slim margin, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said he believes Republicans will have enough votes to confirm a nominee before the election, as IJR reported.  Trump said he has narrowed his list of potential nominees down to five women and will reveal his pick later this week.

New Events: Political Violence Is Likely BEFORE The Election

Mac SlavoSeptember 21st, 2020SHTFplan.com With the death of Supreme Court justice and liberal hero, Ruth Bader Ginsburg comes the possibility of election violence beginning early. Brace for a reaction, as President Donald Trump has insisted on filling Ginsburg’s seat while the left threatens to “burn it down” if he does. The division is too immense to break through at this point.  Far too many are firmly rooted in the left vs. right paradigm lie and it’s going to manifest unless we open our eyes. Unless a lot of people realize what’s going on and realize how divided we’ve allowed ourselves to become, this political violence could escalate to devastating explosive events. Almost immediately after the news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, some verified Twitter users threatened arson and apparent violence in order to block Senate Republicans from replacing her before the elections. “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f—–g thing down,” author Reza Aslan tweeted, according to Fox News. If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down. — Reza Aslan (@rezaaslan) September 19, 2020 He later responded to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s vow to hold a vote on President Trump’s nominee. “Over our dead bodies, literally,” he tweeted. Author Aaron Gouveia similarly blasted McConnell’s statement, saying: “F–k no. Burn it all down.” Ginsburg’s death seems to have only ramped up the rhetoric and forced the divide between the left and the right further apart. Fuck no. Burn it all down. https://t.co/hsjqeVLgBn — Aaron's Book Is Now Available! (@DaddyFiles) September 19, 2020 Please be prepared, because neither side will be backing down. We could very well experience massive violence even before the already promised election violence. This is not meant to be anything other than a warning.  If you take this as fear-mongering, I suggest you harness that fear and brace yourself while continuing to prepare. Be able to protect yourself and your family especially if you live in or near a big city. The mainstream media is telegraphing that this violence is coming. It seems to be pushed forward in time, though, because of the death of Ginsburg. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4!

#FillTheSeat: We MUST have nine Justices to sort through post-election mess

The lawsuits are coming. Lots of them. That’s the second most important thing to take into consideration when we look at the GOP’s desire to nominate and confirm a Supreme Court Justice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election. The most important, of course, is that it’s the President’s prerogative to nominate and the Senate Majority Leader’s prerogative to hold a vote. Elections have consequences, and one such consequence is that Republicans have been given a mandate to do the work of the people. That includes nominating a Supreme Court Justice when a spot opens up. Democrats are threatening to play ever card, use every arrow in their quiver, and take nothing off the table to not only block the President and the Senate but also to get their vengeance when they have control of the Senate and White House in the future. Many of their most ardent “activists” have even gone so far as to threaten violence and rioting if they don’t get their way. Never in history have we seen such an immature and unhinged reaction to something like this. Never. With the lawsuits that will certainly happen before, during, and after the election, it’s imperative that we nine Supreme Court Justices in place to handle the rush. Going in with a 4-4 split—and yes, Chief Justice John Roberts will vote with the progressive wing of the Supreme Court on most if not all election issues—is a constitutional crisis waiting to happen. Democrats know this. Perhaps they’re hoping for it as a final gambit to steal the various elections, including the White House itself. On this episode of NOQ Report, JD and Tammy discuss this and a couple of other stories mentioned below. We also interview Tea Party co-founder Michael Johns and National File journalist Patrick Howley about the issue. Kroger fired two employees because they wouldn’t wear LGBTQ rainbow aprons An Arkansas Kroger store violated federal anti-discrimination law when it reportedly fired two employees who refused to wear LGBT-themed aprons due to their religious beliefs, according to a lawsuit filed Monday by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). According to the Miami Herald, a dress code by the Conway, Ark., grocery store required employees to wear a rainbow-colored heart emblem on the bib of the apron. The women “believed the emblem endorsed LGBTQ values and that wearing it would violate their religious beliefs,” the EEOC said in a news release summarizing the suit. Kroger disciplined the two women and eventually fired them, an action that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. The EEOC charges Kroger with religious discrimination. Both women are Christian. The two women “offered to wear the apron with the emblem covered and the other offered to wear a different apron without the emblem, but the company made no attempt to accommodate their requests,” the EEOC said. If lockdowns work against COVID-19, why is Sweden winning and everyone else is losing? In the month of September, Sweden has had a total of 27 coronavirus deaths, approximately 1.4 deaths per day. They did not go into massive lockdown mode like most of the rest of the world. By comparison, New Jersey with around 1.4 million fewer people, has been in some of the most draconian lockdown conditions for months. In September, New Jersey has had 101 coronavirus deaths, or approximately 5.3 per day. Sweden has effectively defeated COVID-19. They have reached a state of approximately 25% antibody rate for their population, which seems to be the cap. Unlike other diseases, COVID-19 is often fought off by healthy bodies so quickly that antibody accumulation never happens. In other words, there are many who catch it and beat it without even noticing they were sick. The only real lockdown Sweden mandated was for large gathering to be limited. Otherwise, there have been no face mask or social distancing mandates, no businesses forced to be shut down, and no schools closed. They went about their business as usual with precautions recommended to citizens. They did not do everything perfectly; their lack of precautions for the elderly caused spikes in deaths from mid-April to early-May, but since then they have been on a steady decline in the number of COVID-19 deaths. But even Sweden’s “spike” was small when compared to locked down states in America. Sweden’s heaviest death toll day was April 15 with 115 reported coronavirus deaths. Smaller New Jersey, deep in the middle of their lockdown, had a high of 519 deaths on April 30. Going into this election with eight Supreme Court Justices is a constitutional crisis waiting to happen. It could literally bring down our republic if allowed. We MUST #FillTheSeatNow. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy.

The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors.

Explainer: Democratic ‘Court Packing’ Would Prompt a Gloves-off Political Fight

The vow by Republican President Donald Trump and the Republicans to quickly fill U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat despite a looming election has revived talk among some Democrats of expanding the number of justices on the court. These Democrats, along with progressive activists, say all options must be considered to counter what would become an entrenched 6-3 conservative majority that could threaten access to healthcare, abortion, and civil rights. A plan to expand the court would likely lead to a bare-knuckles political fight with unpredictable consequences for both parties. Here are a few things to consider about “court packing.” SIZE OF THE COURT The number of justices on the high court has remained at nine since 1869, but Congress has the power to change the size of the bench and did so several times before that. LAST PACKING PLAN FAILED In 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt, facing a court that repeatedly struck down his New Deal legislation, proposed adding up to six justices, one for each member of the court over the age of 70. The plan faced considerable opposition, including in Roosevelt’s own Democratic party, and was never enacted. ABOLISHING THE FILIBUSTER It is not clear Democrats would pursue a court packing plan. Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer told fellow Democrats on Saturday that “nothing is off the table for next year” if Republicans move forward with Trump’s nominee. But expanding the court would require Democrats to control Congress and the White House. They would need to ditch a longstanding procedural rule in the Senate requiring 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, a tactic frequently used by the minority party to hold up legislation. DIVIDED DEMOCRATS Democratic Senator Ed Markey wrote on Twitter on Friday that if Republicans seat a new justice during an election year, after refusing to give former President Barack Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland a hearing in 2016, “when Democrats control the Senate in the next Congress, we must abolish the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court.” The party’s presidential nominee Joe Biden has opposed the idea in the past. “I’m not prepared to go on and try to pack the court, because we’ll live to rue that day,” he told the Iowa Starting Line in 2019. His running mate, Kamala Harris, however, told Politico last year that she was open to court packing. THE COURT’S LEGITIMACY In an era of hyper partisanship, the high court’s legitimacy has been increasingly called into question, particularly since the fight over Garland’s nomination. Packing the court could prompt future Republicans to further expand the institution and could strengthen the view that the court is purely partisan and renders decisions based on politics rather than the law. OTHER OPTIONS Besides packing the court, activist groups and Democrats have broached the idea of imposing term limits for justices. This would likely require a constitutional amendment, though some scholars have proposed ways to accomplish term limits by statute.

Trump Will Nominate a Woman Next Week To Succeed Ginsburg on Supreme Court

President Donald Trump said on Saturday he will nominate a woman to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, a move that would tip the court further to the right following the death of liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. “I think it should be a woman because I actually like women much more than men.” As Trump spoke, supporters chanted: “Fill that seat.” He praised Ginsburg as a “legal giant … Her landmark rulings, fierce devotion to justice and her courageous battle against cancer inspire all Americans.” Earlier, he praised two women as possible replacements: conservatives he elevated to federal appeals courts. Trump named Amy Coney Barrett of the Chicago-based 7th Circuit and Barbara Lagoa of the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit as possible nominees for a lifetime appointment to the highest U.S. court. It would be his third appointment during his first term. Trump said it was his constitutional right to appoint a successor for Ginsburg, and he would do so, citing similar moves by presidents dating back to George Washington. “We have plenty of time. You’re talking about Jan. 20,” Trump said, referring to the date of the next inauguration. Ginsburg’s death on Friday from cancer after 27 years on the court handed Trump, who is seeking re-election on Nov. 3, the opportunity to expand its conservative majority to 6-3 at a time of a gaping political divide in America. Any nomination would require approval by a simple majority in the Senate, where Trump’s Republicans hold a 53-47 majority. Not all Republican senators supported the move: Maine’s Susan Collins on Saturday said a nomination should wait. “In fairness to the American people, who will either be re-electing the President or selecting a new one, the decision on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court should be made by the President who is elected on November 3rd,” Collins, facing a tough re-election race herself, said in a statement. Democrats are still seething over the Republican Senate’s refusal in 2016 to act on Democratic President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who died 10 months before that election. At the time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate should not act on a nominee during an election year, but he and other top Republican senators have reversed that stance. Even if Democrats win the White House and a Senate majority in the November election, Trump and McConnell might be able to push through their choice before the new president and Congress are sworn in on Jan. 20. Senior congressional Democrats raised the prospect of adding more justices next year to counterbalance Trump’s nominees if they win control of the White House and Senate. “Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, then nothing is off the table for next year,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told fellow Democrats on a Saturday conference call, according to a source who listened to the call. McConnell, who has made confirmation of Trump’s federal judicial nominees a priority, said the chamber would vote on any Trump nominee. Democrats, with few tools to block passage of a nominee, plan to try to rally public opposition. “The focus needs to be showing the public what’s at stake in this fight. And what’s at stake is really people’s access to affordable healthcare, workers’ rights and women’s rights,” said Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen in a telephone interview. Obama on Saturday called on Senate Republicans to honor what he called McConnell’s “invented” 2016 principle. “A basic principle of the law — and of everyday fairness — is that we apply rules with consistency, and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment,” Obama said in a statement posted online. AMY CONEY BARRETT AND BARBARA LAGOA Even before Ginsburg’s death, Trump had released a list of potential nominees. Barrett has generated perhaps the most interest in conservative circles. A devout Roman Catholic, she was a legal scholar at Notre Dame Law School in Indiana before Trump appointed her to the 7th Circuit in 2017. Abortion-rights groups have pointed to Barrett’s conservative religious views and said that as a judge, she would likely vote to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. Lagoa has served on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for less than a year after Trump appointed her and the Senate confirmed her in an 80-15 vote. Prior to that, she spent less than a year in her previous position as the first Latina on the Florida Supreme Court, after more than a decade as a judge on an intermediate appeals court. During the 2016 campaign, Trump promised to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, a longtime goal of conservative activists. Even with the current conservative majority, the court voted 5-4 in July to strike down a restrictive Louisiana abortion law. Cristine Crispell, who works in special education in Reedsville, Georgia, drove five hours to attend the rally with her two teenage daughters. She said Trump “absolutely” had the right to nominate a new justice, even so close to the election. “I would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned. Absolutely,” she said. “Sanctity of life is a huge thing.” Trump has already appointed two justices: Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. Kavanaugh was narrowly confirmed after a heated confirmation process in which he angrily denied accusations by a California university professor, Christine Blasey Ford, that he had sexually assaulted her in 1982 when the two were high school students in Maryland. SENATE RACES IN FOCUS House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Saturday said that rushing a court pick through if Democrats win in November would be “undemocratic.” He said on Twitter: “Congress would have to act and expanding the court would be the right place to start.” With Democrats fighting hard to win control of the narrowly divided Senate, confirmation votes could also add pressure to incumbent Republican senators in competitive election races, including Collins and Arizona’s Martha McSally. Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, a Republican who is not up for re-election this cycle, told local media on Friday, prior to Ginsburg’s death, that she would not vote for a Supreme Court nominee so close to the election.

2020 Democrats should listen to 2016 Democrats

It seems as if every Democrat is determined to condemn and otherwise undermine the President and the Republican-controlled Senate from nominating and confirming a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. They are turning it into an election issue and doing everything they can to make valid arguments for the seat to remain vacant until after the election. The problem they face is that in 2016, they were saying the exact opposite. The death of Antonin Scalia prompted President Obama to nominate Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to allow a vote on the Senate floor or even hold confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee. It was his prerogative and was not unprecedented. In fact, there have been no opposition party Senates that have confirmed a Supreme Court Justice but several who have confirmed the Justices of their own party during an election year. The video of several prominent Democrats, including presidential candidate Joe Biden and Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, demanding the Senate confirm President Obama’s pick should come back to bite them this year as it completely contradicts their arguments today. The only question is whether mainstream media is willing to call them out. They won’t. That means it’s up to all of us to get the word out and spread this video far and wide.

Majority of Americans, Including Many Republicans, Say Wait for Election To Replace Ginsburg – Reuters Poll

 A majority of Americans, including many Republicans, want the winner of the November presidential election to name a successor to Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Sunday. The national opinion poll, conducted Sept. 19-20 after Ginsburg’s death was announced, suggests that many Americans object to President Donald Trump’s plan, backed by many Senate Republicans, to push through another lifetime appointee and cement a 6-3 conservative majority on the court. The poll found that 62% of American adults agreed the vacancy should be filled by the winner of the Nov. 3 matchup between Trump and Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden, while 23% disagreed and the rest said they were not sure. Eight out of 10 Democrats – and five in 10 Republicans – agreed that the appointment should wait until after the election. Trump needs the support of the Senate, which currently has a 53-47 Republican majority to confirm a nominee. So far two Republican senators – Maine’s Susan Collins and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski – have said publicly since Ginsburg’s death Friday that they think the winner of the election should make the nomination. Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed a vote with weeks to go in Trump’s term. Democrats are still seething over his refusal to act on Democratic President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, in 2016 after conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died 10 months before that election. McConnell said then that the Senate should not act on a court nominee during an election year, a stance he has since reversed. The looming fight over the Supreme Court vacancy so far does not appear to have given either of the two major political parties much of an advantage in an incendiary campaign season that already was expected to break participation records. The poll found that 30% of American adults said that Ginsburg’s death will make them more likely to vote for Biden while 25% said they were now more likely to support Trump. Another 38% said that it had no impact on their interest in voting, and the rest said they were not sure. The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online, in English, throughout the United States. It gathered responses from 1,006 American adults, including 463 Democrats and 374 Republicans. It has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Bill Clinton Addresses Whether Dems Should Have Discussed Replacing Ginsburg Before Her Death

Former President Bill Clinton is weighing in on whether Democrats should have discussed a replacement on the Supreme Court before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. Host of CBS’s “Face the Nation” Margaret Brennan asked Clinton if Democrats are missing an opportunity by failing to consider a replacement sooner. “Probably, but we all respected Justice Ginsburg a lot and we thought we had no business talking about her as if she were already gone. And we were hoping she would live for longer,” Clinton said. He added, “I don’t think there’s anything to be done about that.” Watch his comments below: Should Democrats have discussed a replacement on the Supreme Court sooner? "Probably…we had no business talking about her as if she were already gone. And we were hoping she would live for longer," @BillClinton tells @margbrenan pic.twitter.com/rocYP7kEc3 — Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) September 20, 2020 Clinton argued if one more Republican is added to the court, “They’re giving up the health care bill for 20 million people’s health insurance.” Other Democratic leaders, including former President Barack Obama, urged Republican lawmakers to wait until after the November presidential election to fill Ginsburg’s seat, as IJR previously reported.  Ginsburg’s “most fervent wish” prior to her death was she “will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” as IJR previously reported. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) revealed on Sunday Democrats “have arrows in our quiver” should President Donald Trump attempt to push a nominee through in a lame-duck session if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is elected. Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called efforts to fill the seat “another blow to our institutions.” During a speech on Sunday, Biden said if he is elected, “Trump’s nominee should be withdrawn, and as a new president, I should be the one who nominates Justice Ginsburg’s successor.” Two key Republican senators have voiced their opposition to a nomination ahead of the election. Both Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) released statements to voice their disapproval of the efforts to push a nomination through. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told ABC he believes Senate Republicans will have the votes to confirm Trump’s selection before the election.

Supreme Court To Fly Flags at Half-Staff for 30 Days in Memoriam of Ginsburg

Flags on the U.S. Supreme Court’s front plaza will be flown at half-staff for 30 days in honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday, the court said, adding that a black drape has been hung over the doors to the courtroom. In a statement on Sunday, the court said Ginsburg’s bench chair and the bench directly in front of it have also been draped in black wool crepe as part of the tradition for the death of a sitting justice. Visitors to the Supreme Court have left flowers and signs in tribute of the stalwart liberal and feminist icon, many with young children in tow. Mourners heralded Ginsburg’s groundbreaking legal career and expressed dark worries about the country’s direction. Americans have gathered at makeshift memorials around the country to mourn the death of Ginsburg, as President Donald Trump signaled his intention to fill the vacancy weeks before a heated election. The death of Ginsburg, who was on the Supreme Court since 1993, has upended the November election contests, energizing both Trump’s conservative base and presenting new complications in the battle for control of the U.S. Senate. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Sunday urged Senate Republicans not to vote on any candidate nominated to the Supreme Court as the Nov. 3 election approaches, calling Trump’s plan an “exercise of raw political power.” Such an appointment by the president, if approved by the Senate, would cement a 6-3 conservative majority that could influence American law and life for decades.

Democrats Smash Fundraising Records After Ginsburg Death

Democratic donors smashed fundraising records after the death on Friday of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, funneling more than $90 million to candidates and progressive groups in just over 24 hours. As Democrats and Republicans braced for a nomination fight that has upended the November presidential election, the online fundraising organization ActBlue said grassroots donors gave $91.4 million to Democratic candidates and causes in the 28 hours after 8 p.m. Friday, around the time the news of Ginsburg’s death broke. That figure, coming from 1.5 million donations, broke the all-time ActBlue records for dollars raised in one day and dollars raised in one hour, said Erin Hill, the non-profit’s executive director. Donors gave $70.6 million on Saturday alone, and $6.3 million in one hour on Friday night, Hill said, beating the group’s previous records of $41.6 million in one day and $4.3 million in one hour. The death of Ginsburg so close to the Nov. 3 election has energized both the Democratic base and Republican President Donald Trump’s core supporters. If Trump is able to install a conservative replacement for the liberal Ginsburg, the move would cement a 6-3 conservative majority on the court. Much of the Democratic money will be poured into key Senate races, as the party seeks to retake control of the chamber in November, and also to pressure vulnerable Republican incumbents into opposing a move by Trump to install a new justice before the election.

Democrats may use a quorum call to block Supreme Court confirmation vote

Democrats are using big talk to prepare for their fight against a Supreme Court Justice confirmation with President Trump claiming he will nominate a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg this week. But they do not have very many options available to them. One interesting gambit would be a quorum call which would essentially shut down the Senate for as long as they could stay hidden. This option would be in play if they could only get three Republicans to openly oppose a Supreme Court nominee and one more who is sympathetic but unwilling to vote against. To have a quorum, 51 Senators are required. That means if all 47 Democratic Senators are missing, they would need three Republicans to be out as well. Susan Collins has expressed her unwillingness to vote. Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski have hinted that they will not vote for a Trump-nominated Justice before the election. In the past, Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham have said they want the next Justice to be voted on after the election, though Graham has said he will now vote for one. Lamar Alexander and Pat Roberts are both retiring and could be swayed to oppose a vote. Cory Gardner is vulnerable in his election and has not made a clear statement on which way he leans. That means three Republican Senators are very likely against the President picking a Ginsburg replacement before the election with five potential flips. Democrats need a total of four. Quorum requires 51 Senators in the chamber, but one needs to be there to have a quorum call or roll call vote. Otherwise, the presence of 50 or fewer Senators will not be recorded and quorum will be assumed. Vice President Mike Pence counts as the tie-breaker vote, but he does not count during a quorum call. If all Democrats plus three Republicans hide until after the election, at least one person in the chamber would need to call for quorum. In essence, Democrats need four Republicans to be in on the gambit for it to be successful. If it happens and all votes are blocked, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would have to ask the Sergeant at Arms to compel a Senator to come to the chambers. To review, Democrats need three Republicans to stay out of the Senate chambers plus one more Republican to make a quorum call from within the chambers. All 50 opposition Senators would then have to go into hiding, avoiding the Sergeant at Arms and any law enforcement officers tasked with locating them. If they are successful, the Senate would be shut down until at least one who is in hiding is found and brought to the chamber. This may seem like a lot of hassle to block a vote, but it may be easier to get one of the on-the-fence Republicans to call for quorum than to vote against the nomination. Assuming Romney, Collins, and Murkowski are the only Republicans willing to actively vote against the nominee, having a sympathetic Senator calling for quorum may be easier than getting them to vote against a constitutional conservative nominee. It would be procedural versus outright opposition, which may be enough to push Grassley, Alexander, or Roberts to participate in the gambit. Having a 4-4 split in the Supreme Court going into what is almost certainly going to be a very contentious and legally challenged election is, as Ted Cruz noted, a potential constitutional crisis. “We cannot let Election Day come and go and with a 4-4 court,” he said. “We risk a constitutional crisis if we do not have a nine-justice Supreme Court, particularly when there is such a risk of a contested election.” Democrats have threatened every possible way to fight the nomination and confirmation of Ginsburg’s replacement. There’s an ultimate solution for Republicans, of course. Now more than ever, they need to win big in November.

Pelosi Claims Democrats Have ‘Arrows in Our Quiver’ If Trump Tries To Fill Ginsburg’s Vacancy

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) is prepared to take action if President Donald Trump attempts to push a Supreme Court nominee through in a lame duck session if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is elected in November. “We have our options; we have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now. But the fact is, we have a big challenge in our country. This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made,” Pelosi said during her appearance on ABC’s “This Week.” She added, “So right now, our main goal… would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the American people from the coronavirus.” Host George Stephanopoulos questioned Pelosi about whether Democrats are “ruling anything out.” Pelosi stressed the responsibility lawmakers have to protect the American people. Watch her comments below: “We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now,” Pelosi tells @GStephanopoulos when pressed on what Democrats would do if Republicans move to confirm a Trump SCOTUS pick in a lame duck session if Biden wins. https://t.co/FIvnhfahWK pic.twitter.com/55i2KuREx9 — This Week (@ThisWeekABC) September 20, 2020 “We have a responsibility, we take an oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said. She continued, “We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people. When we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy, requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.” Pelosi’s comments come just days after the Supreme Court announced the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday, as IJR previously reported. Ginsburg died from complications of metastatic pancreas cancer at the age of 87. Her granddaughter Clara Spera released a statement shortly after Ginsburg’s death that revealed her dying wish, as IJR previously reported. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg said. Former President Barack Obama and other Democratic leaders urged Republicans to wait until after the November election to fill Ginsburg’s vacancy.

A message from Chuck Schumer to the GOP delivered February 22, 2016

When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declined to hold confirmation hearings or a vote on President Obama’s final Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, Democrats were enraged. The reasoning McConnell cited was the fact that it was an election year with a new president to be elected a few months later. It was a political move, of course; had a Republican been in the White House, McConnell would not have delayed. That’s one of the problems with political parties and both sides play the same game. They tend to do what’s expedient for their party by making the rules convenient as they go. But fair is fair. If some want to complain that McConnell is being inconsistent by pledging to hold a vote for President Trump’s nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, others can complain that Schumer is being inconsistent by claiming now that it shouldn’t be done. In 2016, he held a very different position.

When he does, Democrats will cry foul. Some NeverTrump Republicans will cry foul. Mainstream media will cry foul. But at the end of the day, McConnell is right. He has been given responsibility to the American people to push President Trump’s agenda and oppose the Democrats. That’s why his party was given the majority in 2014, held it in 2016, and expanded it in 2018.

Doug Collins Tweets truth about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and draws leftist outrage

Deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be celebrated by Democrats and even many Republicans as a long-time progressive voice on the bench. Even President Trump reacted with kind words towards her when he heard that she had died. But the fact remains that she was arguably the most ardent promoter of abortion from the bench for the last three decades, and Congressman Doug Collins took the opportunity to remind everyone of that on Twitter. RIP to the more than 30 million innocent babies that have been murdered during the decades that Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended pro-abortion laws. With @realDonaldTrump nominating a replacement that values human life, generations of unborn children have a chance to live. — Doug Collins (@CollinsforGA) September 19, 2020 Collins is running for Senate in Georgia, competing against fellow Republican Kelly Loeffler, Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock, and a handful of other candidates for the special election of the seat that Johnny Isakson retired from in 2019. It’s a “jungle primary,” meaning the top two candidates will face each other head-to-head in the subsequent general election. Loeffler currently leads in most polls with Collins and Warnock fighting for the second spot. The Tweet can be questioned for its timing but not for its message. Justice Ginsburg has long defended abortion at all levels, including writing the dissent in a ruling against partial-birth abortion in 2007. The Clinton-appointee has voted against every abortion restriction the bench has seen since joining the Supreme Court in 1993. She even viewed Roe v Wade as too restrictive, once claiming it did not affirm proper abortion rights to a high enough degree. Leftists were utterly outraged by Collins. They were out in arms on Twitter with vitriol that seemed heavy, even for them. (Warning: Language) Doug Collins is celebrating the death of a Supreme Court Justice. Unforgivable.
