Why ‘Biden Rule’ doesn’t apply: Libs terrified
Senate will replace Ginsburg if SCOTUS seat
opens in 2020

The Left is petrified about the near-term prospect that Senate Republicans would quickly replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should her seat became vacant in 2020 following her string of health problems. Specifically, Democrats are terrified that Republicans will fill the Supreme Court with a conservative judge during an election year, which is a rare occurrence. Leftist Twitter users fumed that they have no doubt that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would replace Ginsburg in a second if her seat opened up. [Tweet] One person sarcastically quipped: “If RBG croaked just after midnight on January 20, 2021, Judge [Jeanine] Pirro would be taking her seat by sunrise.”

Justice Pirro? Has a nice ring to it. Could someone get Pres Trump to add her name to the list of his candidates for the high court? Yeah, I know she'd never get nominated, but it would be fun to watch the libs heads explode.

I don't think Ruthie will be the one deciding how long she stays on the court. There's a higher power that will decide that!

Trump and the Senate WILL replace RBG. Obama was a lame duck and Trump is running for re-election. That is the difference none of the genius, so-called journalists would dare point out. Because they are very liberal advocates not real journalists.

The Democrats deserve NO adherence to "precedent" because of their complete disrespect for these more fundamental principles: * Governmental non-interference in the election process, as demonstrated by the Obama administration's spying on the Trump campaign; * Acceptance of the will of the people, defied by repeated attempts to deny and overturn the election results; * Fundamental honesty in the confirmation process; every Democrat Senator on the Judiciary Committee knew full well Blasey-Ford was lying.

Conservatives focus on Ginsburg because of her age/health, but there's also Stephen Breyer. At 81 he has surpassed the ages at which both his parents died. His father died at age 70 and his mother, at 62. I don't know to what they succumbed, but he seems to be punching above his genetic use-by date. Just sayin'....

This crime runs in the family. A Kansas man was busted for driving a stolen Chevy SUV to a local jail to bail out his brother — who was being held for driving a stolen Chevy SUV, according to authorities. The sibling already in the pokey, Eric Dean McCracken, 36, had been arrested in Topeka early Friday for allegedly driving a stolen 2007 Trailblazer with a suspended license, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said in a release. A few hours later, his younger brother, Keith Ray McCracken, 32, was also arrested after a short chase with cops tracking the GPS of a stolen 2015 Silverado, the department said.

Actor Josh Brolin says he gave hot new wellness trend “perineum sunning” a whirl — with disastrous results that left his “pucker hole” sunburned. The “No Country for Old Men” actor revealed the effect of tanning his bum in a Black Friday Instagram post. “My pucker hole is crazy burned and I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain,” Brolin wrote next to a photo of a naked man lying on his back with his legs in the air as the sun kisses his posterior.

Democratic gaffe machine Joe Biden continued his role as the unofficial chair of the Trump reelection campaign by making another epic blunder that underscores that someone should put a fork in him. Because he’s done. This time, Biden — who never met Kim Jong Un — claimed he “spent a lot of time” with the leader of North Korea. Biden spouted the boldfaced lie during a campaign stop in Iowa on Saturday (Nov. 30). Joe bragged to a tiny roomful of supporters that authoritarian leaders like Kim Jong Un will never fool him because he knows who they are at their core, which is brutal dictators.

An armed bread delivery man named Joseph Chilton foiled a robbery at a Hardee’s fast-food restaurant in Georgia by shooting the armed robber during a gun fight. The robbery suspect, Damario Parrish, was injured after a “short gun battle” with Joseph Chilton, who stepped into action after he heard screams from a Hardee’s restaurant in Ellenwood, Georgia on Nov. 30. No one else was hurt. The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office was so impressed by Chilton’s bravery in “defending those who could not defend themselves” that Sheriff Victor Hill named Chilton an honorary deputy and inducted him into the Sheriff’s Posse Hall of Fame.

U.S. Reports First Month in 70 Years as Net
Exporter of Oil

Remember a few years ago when the United States was heavily dependent on foreign oil and experts were telling us we'd be a slave to OPEC forever? I remember it well. We fought wars for oil, undermined unfriendly governments for oil, but in the end, we were at the mercy of others for our oil supply. Our economy was held hostage by OPEC, as even a small change in the price of oil would send markets reeling and slow economic growth. But in September, that all pretty much ended. For the first time since records were kept beginning in 1949, the United States became a net exporter of oil.

The end of Pete Buttigieg’s term as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, on Dec. 31 comes at a fortuitous time for him in the Democratic presidential race, freeing him from mayoral obligations a full month before the first state nominating contests begin while his competitors tend to Washington obligations. Buttigieg, 37, will become a full-time candidate as most of his primary competitors are due to be pulled away from Iowa and New Hampshire so they can sit in the Senate observing impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Joe Biden, 77, is the only other top-tier candidate able to campaign unrestricted,

She must have looked good enough to eat. A jovial Joe Biden nipped his wife Jill’s finger onstage Saturday at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as she introduced him at the first stop of an eight-day, 800-mile road trip through the first-to-caucus state. As Jill Biden flung an arm wide to make a point, her husband theatrically dodged her hand — then, on a second pass, gave her a playful chomp on her fingertip. She took the nibble in stride, laughing along with a crowd of about 200 supporters.

When Matt first broke the scandal involving the President of the United States and an intern, his place at the top of alternative media, as it was called then, was secured. As always, imitators followed. But none came close to combing as many news outlets and boiling down the essence of stories like Drudge. That was his magic – he’d plow through stories and

Next year, Democrats will control both houses of Virginia’s state Legislature as well as its governorship. On November 18, State Sen. Dick Saslaw introduced a bill that he will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session. That bill will outlaw not only the sale or transfer but also the possession of certain firearms. Saslaw’s bill — SB 16 — provides that “It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess or transport an assault firearm” and makes such actions a Class 6 felony. (In Virginia, Class 6 felonies are punishable by imprisonment for between one and five years.)

The Democratic presidential candidate wants the electoral college abolished after the 2020 election, saying she would get elected next year under its rules and then by the popular vote when she ran for re-election in 2024. Democrats were outraged in 2016 when Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but Donald Trump won the electoral college and the presidency. (Photo/Tweet)

House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the Democrats’ report Tuesday on the impeachment inquiry, concluding that President Donald Trump “solicit[ed] foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”The report presents itself as the core fact-finding effort, though that function has traditionally been handled by the House Judiciary Committee, which will begin its own hearings on Wednesday.The full report was initially unavailable on the House Intelligence Committee website, which was overloaded. However, the executive summary laid out the broad outlines of the Democrats’ case.

My husband watches a lot of videos on YouTube and some are entertaining, but some are downright scary. I watched one recently made by a man defending the Electoral College because he lives in flyover country. He made a lot of sense and clearly understands why the Founding Fathers wrote it into the Constitution. The rants coming from the Democrats running for office clearly show that none of them studied civics in school. They seem to think that if you don’t live in large cities on the coasts, your vote shouldn’t count.
