Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday night at home surrounded by family. She was 87-years-old. Republicans control the US Senate and the White House and could nominate and confirm a justice by election day on November 3rd. Following her death Barack Obama immediately played politics and demanded the GOP Senate leaders honor “her dying instructions” and put off a vote on the next Supreme Court Justice until after the next president is inaugurated. And Chuck Schumer immediately after her death also announced that Republicans should refrain

" . . . her dying instructions" Instructions? Instructions? Hey, we don't need no steenking instructions! Especially from a dying political hack. We've got the Constitution - - and that's all the "instructions" we need!

They don’t want to appoint a new Justice pre-election, but they are just fine with packing the court with more justices? Me thinks they doth protest too much.

A dying person can make instructions for him/herself and not legal demands that others have to follow. Maybe if Ginsburg was't responsible for so many thousands of deaths there would be more voters on the Democratic side.

Selective Memory and Application huh UpChuck Schumer? So, the Senate will do its Constitutional job- and appoint and confirm a SC Justice.. Ruth held out for a Hillary assured victory- and an assured Biden victory.. a shame she didn’t get any retirement with family..

So, RBG asked to circumvent the Constitution one more time, something she did repeatedly, as a matter of course, her whole career. Well, there you have it, UpChuck says that 17 SCOTUS Justices confirmed in election years. We should keep up with that good example. UpChuck says "Do Your Job"......Gee, I have to agree with him. This is a first. Theissen says the guiding principle is: WWDD. What Would Democrats Do? You know that the Dems would ram it through without batting an eye if the events were reversed. We should do the same.

Obie used an unfortunate word. “Instruction.” Inflammatory and dead wrong. She was in no position to offer an instruction. She could have “fervent wishes” till hell freezes over. She could never ever instruct. It reflects his thinking ...

Just how will schumer's words come back to bite him? The words of political hacks, particularly democrat political hacks, are meaningless. They say what ever they think fits their current scheme without any inttent to honor what they just spoke. Their promises are worthless as their words. Something about whited sepulchers.

It's really all about abortion isn't it? The Roe decision. Yet, Chuck Schumer should be reminded that New York was 1 of 4 states who allowed abortion PRIOR to the Roe decision. In fact, NOTHING would happen to anyone in NY, or going to NY, who wanted an abortion even if Roe was somehow overturned. CA, IL, NJ, MA, WA, and many other states already have laws that would allow for legal abortion, even if Roe is overturned. We need to show a list, which I believe will assure many who simply vote Democrat for this one issue, but might realize they don't have to. Also, would blunt the argument from many Democrat politicians and their friendly media. What the Left likes is they can use the one-size-fits-all approach with regards to legal fights instead of having to work in 50 states with different legislatures.

Joe Biden is accused of hypocrisy after a 2016 op-ed emerged in which he slammed Republicans for holding up a Supreme Court appointment, stating that it is the 'constitutional duty' of a president to nominate if a vacancy becomes available. He made the comments in a March 2016 op-ed with the New York Times, in which he added that he was 'surprised and saddened' to hear Republican senators say they would not longer accept a nomination because it was an election year.His words resurfaced this week after he blasted President Donald Trump for moving to nominate a candidate to fill the vacancy left by the death of

She was allegedly armed with a gun when she was detained by officers. Prosecutors in Washington DC are expected to bring charges against her over the poison packages, the official said.No further details about the suspect have been revealed at this time.

Political consultant Rick Wilson has pretty much done away with the feign that he’s a “Republican” with his fervid opposition to the GOP moving to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A key henchman at the Lincoln Project, the well-funded PAC of so-called Republicans working to defeat President Donald Trump, Wilson took to social media early Sunday to offer Democrats hope, tweeting that the anti-Trump cabal is “working feverishly” to attack Senate Republicans.(Video) In doing so, Wilson referred to Republican senators as “mfers,” which is short for “mother f*ckers,” of course. “P.S.

WASHINGTON, DC – Jack Keane, a retired four-star general and former vice chief of the U.S. Army, told Breitbart News in an interview this weekend that President Donald Trump ending 40 years of U.S. appeasement toward the Iranian dictatorship moved the world a step closer to the demise of the regime.Keane said that, in addition to enforcing sanctions and ending the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Trump’s brokering the restoration of diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates is a game changer.“The momentum is truly shifting very dramatically against the mullahs,” Keane said. “This is not just a historical event. It’s a geopolitical paradigm shift.”

Friday’s news that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died after her long battle with cancer has briefly pushed most other topics off the great chyron running along the country’s metaphysical information highway. Still, there are lingering echoes of some ancient happenings.For example, a couple of weeks ago, President Trump brokered a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (soon to be joined by Bahrain and other Arab states). This was a world-historical event that not even the silence and distortion of the Washington Post, the New York Times, and other Democratic Party mouthpieces could totally obscure.
