I just don't see how they recover from this.

How many conservative justices will there be now? Never thought I'd be a fan of Mitch McConnell.

Think about it, the DNC made her hang in there to the end - asshats - with the hope she services past Nov, but this happens (RIP) and all that was for nothing. Fucking politicians - bunch of assholes.

Ok, now that is out - awesome, i have to call up some liberal friends - 3 SCOTUS of trump on the bench - love it.

They already intended to pack the court if Biden gets in.

Courts are supposed to be apolitical.

Interesting its all Obama judges allowing ballot harvesting and extended vote counts.

Elections matter.

We need this nominee brought forth, and seated prior to December.... if this election is to be decided by the SCOTUS, and it may well be, then this move likely assures the result for Trump... this is absolutely needed, and now

The president has an obligation. It has nothing to do with the election. He could lose the elecetion, get hit by a bus, struck by lightning etc....He has a job to. PLUS, Barry O went and tried nominated a libturd in 2016 knowing it would fail. So when the lying shitbags open their mouths saying that nominating a Supreme court judge viloates codes, ethics, precidents, etc remember they did try to do the same thing when scalia died. And guess what ..... do you think they would do any different if the roles were reversed? FUCK THEM. They can fulfill their 2016 oaths that they were going to move to another if Trump were elected.

Chronology?

2015-2016 - RGB mulls retirement to allow BHO to replace her with a Left leaning judge. She decides to hang around because she's feeling up to it physically but more importantly she knows HRC is going to win the then upcoming election and As a champion for woman's rights wants to give the SCOTUS pick to another woman.

2016-09/17/2020 - Regretting her decision not to retire during the BHO regime her pleasant disposition deteriorates and she begins to openly criticize DJT. She becomes vindictive enough that she vows to hang on in spite of her rapidly deteriorating physical condition to deny DJT another SCOTUS appointment.

09/18/2020 - RGB comes up short.

Why does anyone have Liberal friends when you have nothing in common.
"lib" and "friend" do NOT belong in the same sentence.
I understand the sentiment, but completely disagree with this line of thinking. It is contributing to the polarization we're seeing.
A topic for another thread.

Meanwhile.......Trump should put forward the best constitutional nominee from his list ASAP!
This is precisely why Trump was elected. To act expediently for whats in the best interest of those who elected him. Fuck political strategy! Do the next right thing for the right reason. Simple as that.

We will be bombarded from media, social media etc. stating; it would be a strategic blunder to push a nominee through. Do you really think they are trying to help Trump strategize for his best chance at reelection?? NO they are not. Don't fall for their trap! Hell there are threads on this strategy BS in the hide now.

Both sides are energized. There is no guarantee he will be reelected & there is no guarantee we will hold the senate. The time to act is now.

Here's my scenario for some serious jam-it-up-their-ass fuckery:
If the new nominee gets in this year, the Senate puts up a rule where they will not consider a vote to appoint a new SCJ unless there are fewer than 9.

Then change all the procedures back to 60 votes to change a rule.

The great socialist dictator that did so much harm to the country already tried once to pack the SC with enough liberals to do anything he wanted.
Despite the country being full of wide eyed sheep who believed every bit of propaganda the government said, they still said that was a bridge too far.
The people revolted and said 9 is all you get. (Of course then he bullied the court hard enough to get them to agree to every evil dictate he spat out).

Somehow I don't think they will be able to do it as easily as they think this time around.

Wait....so you're saying she has read the Constitution before? Like, the Constitution of the United States of America? That one?
Now I'm really confused.

I've read the communist manifesto; doesn't mean I support any of it.

Honestly, does it really even matter anymore? They do what they want anyways despite the wishes of the people. There doesn’t seem to be any facet of gov left, aside from maybe one man, that is for the people. I believe the last several nominations left a lot to be desired, what makes anyone think this one will be any different?
