Amy Barrett — Immediately, If Not Sooner

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 9/19/2020 5:56:37 AM

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday evening, she did so with a message for posterity which, for all the history that Ginsburg might have made as a woman on the Supreme Court, was pristine in its self-description of her time on the Court. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she said. The arrogance of that was par for Ginsburg’s course. Yes, yes, Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived an interesting life, and yes, yes, she was an accomplished woman. Those things are beside the point. It is neither ghoulish nor inappropriate to look to the future of the United States Supreme Court

Her dying wish showed how little respect she had for either the rule of law or the Constitution. And remembering how she announced that she was going to live into her 90's also told me at the time how little respect she had for God. Well, I guess He got the last word, He always does.

Amy is a great candidate, but may not want to move her family to the D.C. area? Read some place that current justices live away from Washington and show up occasionally, with clerks filing papers and doing research. Perhaps she could work this way?

Someone should have told RBG that "Father Time" is undefeated. And Mr. President M Barrett is the perfect nominee for SCOTUS. Start the ball rolling and drive the left out of their minds.

Arrogance - exactly! I guess she didn’t want to be replaced until 2025. That is when a new president will be installed. A poster below the article makes a good point - he and I both, and I’m sure many of you, have watched a relative die of cancer. The last few days they are comatose and they are not saying anything at all, much less leaving instructions for their replacements.

Sounds like the interview William Casey gave on his deathbed. If it wasn't on video, I don't believe it. Plus, Justices do not get to set the terms under which the seats they leave are filled.

I hope that the judges on POTUS' short list for the SC have Secret Service protection in place or at least on the way. Every one of those judges especially Amy Comey is now a target for some leftist. This will become even more important should the nomination become a 'done deal' in the Senate. Even though the Rs have a 53-47 majority expect 2-3 defections (Romney, Murkowsky, etc) to vote with the Ds or to abstain. Pence may be the deciding vote so chances look good for a quick confirmation. When the left realize that, their only remaining course of action is murder.

McKay is missing a critical issue! Heads up here! FTA: "Even without Jones’ vote and a worst-case scenario among faithless GOP senators, it’s a 50-50 tie that Vice President Mike Pence...can break." Wrong! What he's missing is that AZ Senator Martha McSally was APPOINTED (not elected) and her opponent, Mark Kelly (D)could be seated and in position by NOV 30 to vote on RBG replacements. McSally has NO chance of defeating Kelly, former astronaut husband of Gabby Giffords. If Kelly wins as he's projected to in every single poll, there will be NO 50-50 tie for Pence to break. Sorry to say, but with Kelly in place the Demos can win the vote about holding off RBG replacement.

Yes, #5. Having watched the final days and hours of my father's and mother's passing, they weren't just laying there barking out their desires. Neither were conscious the last several days of their lives. Even if it is true that Ginsburg did say that a SCOTUS confirmation be delayed, she had to have said it some days ago. Or it isn't true and Obie made it up. If Judge Barrett is nominated and confirmed and is willing to have a SCOTUS office in DC, more power to her. I would be very fine with her on the bench.

Yes, what an arrogant person to ask that the normal process be changed for her side's political benefit. I don't know that much about Judge Barrett, but what I have heard is all good. We need a Constitutionalist, not a political hack like RBG. At dinner last night with a libertarian friend (a reasonably sensible libertarian, though, bordering on conservative) he pointed out that when you get a real Constitutionalist on the court, you can get a few legal rulings which even the judge doesn't really like much, politically, because he/'she will follow the law/Constitution wherever it goes, not just do the political thing. Yes, that is true, and I'm on board with that.

That deathbed “instruction” was somewhat of a stretch. Here is NPR’s own tweet on when it actually happened. If it happened. NPR Politics @nprpolitics ·16h Just days before her death, as her strength waned, Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that i I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” _______________ She may have mentioned it to her granddaughter. Or not. But it wasn’t at the last minute. “Just days before” could be quite a while...

Sorry, Ruthie, but we won't have a "new president" for 4 more years when President Trump finishes his second term in office. We really can't wait that long to replace you. Ruthie could have retired when Ovomit as president, and she would have had a guaranteed marxist political activist to replace her. But she was so sure that the Hilldebeast would be elected, that she hung around so that she could have "the honor of swearing in the first women president". So instead of getting to spend quality time with her family, concentrate on treating her cancer, and not have the stress of the world on her shoulders, she was stuck continuing to serve on the SCOTUS while trying to battle pancreatic cancer. This is the evil of partisan politics. I really pity her, and feel sad for her family for missing out on getting to have that quality time with her the last few years of her life!!!

Nancy Pelosi's Reign of Error 10 replies

Nancy Pelosi made news late last month, and not in a good way. She was caught on a security camera having her hair done at a San Francisco salon that has been closed to the public during the coronavirus lockdown. When confronted with the footage, she did not apologize for the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do impression, but rather expressed outrage at the salon owner for setting her up. If you have followed Pelosi’s career over the past 15 or so years, the whole affair was hardly a surprise. Pelosi is one of the most unpopular figures in the last decade of American politics. According to RealClearPolitics, her average favorability rating stands at just 38%,

Perhaps it is glib to observe that, at the end of the day, Republicans should confirm a replacement for Justice Ginsburg because they can confirm a replacement for Justice Ginsburg, but there is a lot of truth to that observation. They can do it because the president has the power under the Constitution to appoint a nominee (I expect it to be Amy Coney Barrett, but Barbara Lagoa is a possibility and a great one), plus because the Senate has the power under the Constitution to confirm said nominee.

Censored, some might even say. Apologies and clarifications soon after came. But let’s be clear and let’s stay clear on this: Soros is indeed diddling in America’s political and legal systems. And his diddling is indeed having a “have at it” effect on those who would take to the streets, with bricks, to express their frustrations with President Donald Trump.

As Bronson wrote last night, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at the age of 87. No doubt she left a lasting imprint on our history and that of the Supreme Court. Her close friendship with the late Justice Antonin Scalia was notable, as it showed that people with very differing opinions can indeed get along. In fact, the two were quite funny together. As the late Justice Scalia once said in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes—and I’m paraphrasing here, I don’t attack people, I attack ideas. And some very good people have some very bad ideas.

No clear answer yet, but NBC News reports Democratic senators have set up a “war room” to enable them to abolish the filibuster and quickly pass a Biden-Harris agenda. Other Democrats have urged that a Democratic Congress admit new states to the Union to have a view to blocking a Republican majority forever. Democratic Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer has a political incentive to back such extreme moves.

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg put the Supreme Court at the epicenter of the 2020 presidential election, setting up a furious battle over who should fill the vacancy. Ginsburg, 87, died Friday of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, just weeks before the Nov. 3 presidential election, likely marking the start of a bitter partisan feud over who will fill her empty seat. Conservatives outnumbered liberals on the court 5-4 before the death of Ginsburg, a liberal stalwart. With a new right-leaning justice, conservatives could hold a solid 6-3 majority. At the beginning of September, President Trump unveiled a list of potential Supreme Court nominees should he have future vacancies to fill.

Fallon added early Saturday morning that Democrats should add seats to the nation's highest court if the "GOP rams Trump pick" through the Senate.
