Death bed wishes do not trump the Constitution. This is just another tactic of the left to influence the weak minded among us. Their argument is based on pure emotion and has nothing to do with the duty the President has to put for a nominee when one becomes vacant. President Trump will do his duty. By the way, all you contrarian Republicans should get in line. Your oath commands you to protect and defend the Constitution. Your self-serving sanctimony is misplaced. Your duty is to vote on the nominee the President puts forth. Do your job. It’s what we the people pay you to do.

Bad advice. Trump’s nominee must be confirmed immediately. Delaying until after the election will only give the democrats more motivation to go dirty, low and criminal in their quest for the White House. If trump loses the Republicans will surely lose the senate.

Who leaves their government job in their will? Only sick drugged up people who were incapable of even doing the job for years and only kept it so that someone else couldn't get it. This comes off as a woman of integrity by those with very poor touch with reality.

I submit the infamous quote from ValJar. "After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay."

#5, my experience was that the patient not only couldn’t speak but was in a coma for the last 10 days. That “deathbed wish” was written by the same staffers who have been doing Ruthie’s job for her for the last 5 years. Remember, it was just a couple of months ago that they announced that she was “cancer free”.

What we have here is the President having weaponized Ginsberg's replacement to his liking. He has succeeded in jacking up the left beyond comprehension. He has a permanent lead over the dims and msm this time. And he will maintain that lead by putting a top rate juris doctor out for nomination and confirmation. And more importantly, he has pulled some of the pubbie cowards out into the open where they can't hide any longer and have to be either all-in for the President or be banished from politics forever. This death bed "instruction" from Ginsberg is a joke. I refer to #1, #5, and #8 comments. Obie is telling another one of his little fibs here in claiming there was an "instruction" which of course is not relevant.

If RBG was so concerned about her replacement she should have retired while Obama was president. She would have been able to have input into who her replacement would be.

The court got very liberal in the first place by Republicans trying to appease liberals with their judges. Some of Nixon's appointments proved to be a disaster. Ford's chose John Paul Stevens, a nominal Republican who quickly became one of the most liberal members in history. It' time to correct some old mistakes.

RBG was another Democrat who counted on Hillary getting elected in 2016. She would retire and Hillary would get to appoint her successor, another feminist. Isn't it sweet how things worked out. It was first the death of Scalia, then Kennedy retired, and now number 3, Ginsburg, passed during President Trump's 1st term ... all on President Trump's watch. Wow! Three nominations to the SC what a lucky guy. No such luck..!! After the campaign spying, the Russian collusion and the falsely charged impeachment, call it what you will. However, it's quite clear that the past four years demonstrates the divine hand of God moving the chess pieces with President Trump and his administration to protect this country from the evil that abounds. It's time to support President Trump as much as possible and those Republicans who don't will pay the price.

A) There was no deathbed wish; B) It would not matter one bit if there was, RBG gets zero say in who replaces her or when; C) RBG’s seat has been effectively empty for several years now, it should have been filled in 2018.

"Elections have consequences." - Barack Obama. Suggest the dumbocrats play by the rules...which state that Trump is required to nominate RBG's replacement. The rules nowhere stipulate that his nominee can only hold the uber-left, Constitution-killing ideology of the justice being replaced. In fact, the one key requirement of any nominee is that they can honestly and sincerely take their oath of office, which requires that they support the Constitution, as written....not as they wish it were written. From that perspective, Kagan, Sotomayor, and Roberts should all be impeached and kicked off the bench immediately for violating that oath.

#3 said, "If trump loses the Republicans will surely lose the senate." That's probably true. But there's no guarantee that if Trump wins, the Republicans will surely retain the Senate. If the Republicans lose their Senate majority (such as it is--with Murkowski, Collins, + Romney), Trump won't be able to obtain confirmation of any conservative SCOTUS nominee. From this perspective, it would be better to hold confirmation hearings before the election, and vote the nominee up or down after the election, in late November or early December. The wild card is that if the Pennsylvania election goes haywire and the Supreme Court has to intervene to halt the dems' counting of harvested and questionable ballots, an eight-justice SCOTUS with Roberts as the swing vote portends little confidence in a fair outcome.

I told a cousin yesterday that in 2016, Biden and Durbin got hoisted on their own petards. That was delicious to watch, but the end result was that one conservative was replaced by another. This is a horse of a different color, replacing the court's most extreme liberal with a conservative. This will tilt the court to the Right for years to come. And as i posted yesterday, it will also nullify Roberts' wishy-washy tendencies. Senate Republicans would be fools not to take advantage of their golden opportunity, but sadly there a handful of them that are that foolish.

Ginsburg mainly helped feminists for years. That did not take much intelligence or legal knowledge. She had female genetalia so she advanced the fortunes of females. BFD. Regardless of that, she has been nothing but a placeholder for four years by barely keeping her eyes open. The democrats let themselves settle into a comfortable position and got burned. Live with it you dolts. This on top of investing billions of dollars in damage to the country is just another dim failure to look further ahead than the ends of their noses.

Anything that weakens the federal judiciary is an opportunity to restore the Constitution and limited government. If the President loses it won't matter a bit who is on the Supreme Clowns because they will be replacing the most rabid America-hater ever to be on the Court - a dead ACLU lawyer. My advice would be - keep your powder dry, avoid the temptation to poke a sharp stick in their eyes, don't announce anyone, don't give then a target to smear, at least until after November, and then perhaps well into the 2nd term if he wins. Let the Democrats set a few more of their cities on fire, let them #BurnLootMurder, give them plenty of rope to hang themselves. Stay cool.

A brouhaha has erupted over President Donald Trump’s decision to forward a Supreme Court justice nominee to the Senate for confirmation. Democrats have threatened to pack the court if Democrats capture both the White House and the Senate in November. This would be the second such attempt in that past century. Eight decades ago, Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt attempted to pack the Supreme Court in retaliation for justices unanimously finding many of his programs unconstitutional. When Roosevelt was elected president in 1932, he was joined by a super-majority of Democrats in each chamber of Congress.

Three elections ago — all the way back in 2008 — Joe Biden talked a lot about “kitchen table issues,” the questions that faced American families that were so important that they talked about them around the kitchen table. They are the questions, Biden told us, that decide presidential elections. The 2020 election presents us with the mother of all kitchen table issues, the Covid-19 pandemic, because it directly affects everyone’s lives. How much danger do we have of getting the disease or even dying from it? Does dad or mom — or both — still have a job? If not, how can we pay our bills?

Nancy Pelosi made news late last month, and not in a good way.

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.

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. And they better do it, because the Democrats intend to crush us

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.

Outside of the friendly confines of Utah, Mitt Romney is not a very popular figure in the Republican Party just at the moment. His vote to convict President Donald Trump on one charge during the impeachment debacle cemented a severe distaste that most conservatives developed as a result of his Never Trump antics. Romney suffered those slings and arrows without much complaint, stating the reason he received so much ire is his principled conservatism.
