What’s Really at Stake in 2020

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 9/25/2020 5:16:31 AM

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has clarified what is at stake in the 2020 election. It is not, as some believe, democracy itself. Nor is it, as others assume, our continued existence as a nation. Democracy will survive Donald Trump, and the United States of America will outlast Joe Biden. The question that 2020 will help to answer is what sort of democracy, and what sort of nation, America will be as it prepares to enter the second quarter of the 21st century. The reaction to Ginsburg’s death, and to Republican plans to fill her seat on the Supreme Court, underscores the choice before the electorate:

This article is like chewing cardboard. It accurately describes some of the differences that the election needs to decide but it does so in a "tasteless" way. The items are listed without insight or reasoning. There were excellent reasons the Constitution was constructed as it is and those reasons may be more important today than ever. Yet, the author is largely mute as to the reasons and even the impact of the liberals proposed changes. We live now in a Constitutional Republic that carefully restricts the power of the state in deference to the people. The liberals would not only give power to the majority but they would empower the state to enforce the majority's decisions with no protection of individuals. The concept of "God given rights" is lost. In my thinking this is an enormous difference and deserves far more than such a bland review,

I, too, found this article difficult. In the opening. The author alleges “ Democracy will survive Donald Trump, and the United States of America will outlast Joe Biden. ” Later, he opined “Democrats lpropose would warp our constitutional system. They would turn the American government into a creature far different from the one the Founders made. “ There were other puzzlements as well. I sort of quit reading and went back yo sleep. I don’t want to square the circle after a week like this one.

You might as well say "everything." The damage that radical leftists could do with four years of pulling Biden's strings would take decades to fix. Look how much pain that Obama was able to inflict even with his heavy vacation and golf schedule. If Biden dies in his first year we would not know it for another four years. Harris, AOC and the muslim squad could potentially kill the country if we did not forcefully stop them.

Why is it that politicians and political pundits don’t know that the USA is NOT a democracy? It’s a representative republic, Matthew!

It's not a democracy, it's a republic. You lost me at that point. Elections are bogus. They're fraud. Trump is the greatest President of my lifetime, but he is stymied by the Deep State. No one can take them on Like the other great enemy of freedom, the federal judiciary, the Deep State is immune to elections. Elections are a distraction. It's actually not even a republic. It's an oligarchy.

Cotton Sets Up ‘Supreme Court War Room’

Sen. Tom Cotton's (R., Ark.) office will operate a campaign-style war room to help Republicans fight back against attacks on President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court. Cotton's "Supreme Court War Room" was launched Friday afternoon, a day before Trump is expected to announce his pick to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. His office says the project will track attacks on the nominee and provide rapid response to push back. Cotton, who himself was on Trump's list of potential nominees, created the project due to the ferocity of recent Supreme Court fights—especially over Trump's nominees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

The way the Democrats are working themselves into a lather over whether President Trump will commit himself to a “peaceful transferal” of power reminds us of the moment when we first realized the New Yorker could win the 2016 election. That was eight minutes into the first Republican primary debate, when moderator Bret Baier asked whether they would all pledge to support whoever emerged as the GOP nominee. Here’s how Mr. Baier put it: “Is there anyone on stage — and can I see hands — who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the Republican Party

Donald Trump on Saturday unveils his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, the third of his presidency. Credit a man who looks like the undertaker but acts like the corpse for the more expressive, energetic politician picking three justices instead of one. Mitch McConnell played a 12 into a 21 after the February 2016 death of Antonin Scalia. Faced with a nominee moderate by the standards of recent justices placed on the bench by Democratic presidents, the Senate majority leader opted to block Merrick Garland on the assumption that the Republican presidential nominee would win in November 2016.

Who can fail to be attracted to the Tesla? That sleek, silent-running electric vehicle seems more common on the road every day. The introduction of the Model 3 has put this fascinating, tech-heavy brand of car into the same price category as the more expensive nonluxury conventional vehicles. As a result, Tesla can barely build them fast enough to keep up with demand. Nor is Tesla the only make of electric car generating broad interest. Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, and other automakers are all expected to come out with new fully electric models in the next year or two. Even so, there are limits to this revolution.

Understanding what drives the revolution that is destroying the American republic gives insight into how the 2020 election’s results may impact its course. Its practical question—who rules?—is historically familiar. But any revolution’s quarrels and stakes obscure the question: to what end? Our revolution is by the ruling class—a revolution from above. Crushing obstacles to its growing oligarchic rule is the proximate purpose. But the logic that drives the revolution aims at civilization itself. What follows describes how far along its path that logic has taken America, and where it might take us in the future depending on the election’s outcome.

You remember “Where’s Waldo?” This election season, voters are asking: “Where’s Joe?” On Thursday, just a short 40 days before the election, the Biden campaign called a “lid” at 9 a.m. — no more questions, no more appearances for the rest of the day. That’s after The Post found that President Trump has answered five times the number of questions from reporters in the two months from mid-July to mid-September, 1,141 to a scant 274. Americans deserve to hear more from the man who wants to be president, and who is willing and able to face tougher questioning.
The Hunter Biden Problem 15 replies

Joe Biden likes to say that Donald Trump’s intemperate behavior is “corrupting” America’s children. It is a curious charge coming from a pol whose own son, Hunter, is a walking display of corruption. Lost on Biden is the irony that while he worried about the bad “example” Trump might set for America’s children, his own child was self-destructing. It appears that Joe and his lobbyist brothers James and Frank didn’t set a particularly good example for Hunter. They taught him early in his career that he could make easy money off the family’s political connections. Long before Hunter cashed in on his father’s last name in China and Ukraine,

While visiting Flint and Michigan, Harris claimed that out of the hundreds of restaurants in Michigan that received relief funds from the Paycheck Protection Program, only one was Black-owned, The Detroit News reported. “(Joe Biden) and I feel very strongly that you have to speak truth, you cannot deny fact and where there are disparities, they need to be addressed,” Harris told a WDIV reporter.

A media campaign has erupted against Amy Coney Barrett, even though President Trump hasn’t actually nominated her to the Supreme Court. Barrett is clearly the front-runner, having spent a second straight day at the White House as the president moves toward his Saturday announcement. And of course there should be substantial scrutiny of her record if she’s picked, given that replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a lifetime appointment. But there are early signs this is going to be ugly, and that her religion will be front and center. That subject came up in 2017 when the Senate approved her as a federal appeals court judge in Chicago. Newsweek jumped on the judge

It’s up to God to decide if Nancy Pelosi is a truly terrible person, but she’s giving an excellent imitation of one here on earth. Pelosi seemingly believes that 2020 has given her license to violate all political norms. In the past two months, Pelosi has called federal law officers “stormtroopers,” violated the mask rule she insists upon for others, claimed that she was a victim of a hair salon “set up,” (snip) Her worst act ever, though, could be her siding with the mob with the lie that the Louisville police involved with Breonna Taylor’s death are murderers.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Democrats in of the House of Representatives will introduce a bill next week to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years from current lifetime appointments, in a bid to reduce partisan warring over vacancies and preserve the court’s legitimacy. The new bill, seen by Reuters, would allow every president to nominate two justices per four-year term and comes amid heightened political tensions as Republican President Donald Trump prepares to announce his third pick for the Supreme Court after the death on Sept. 18 of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with just 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election.
