• Notorious RBG - RIP

    From Aaron Thomas@1:229/426 to All on Friday, September 18, 2020 21:27:57
    Ruth Bader Ginsburg died today, I just read. I wish her family the best.

    But I also wonder what does this mean for her spot in the Supreme Court? Does this give Trump yet another opportunity to fill a seat before the end of his term?

    And if so, what does this mean for Roe v. Wade? RBG might have just saved a lot of babies!

    Nevermind! Mitch McConnel already answered my question!

    He said that "Trump's nominee will have a vote on the senate floor."

    Pretty cool! Not happy that RBG has passed, but very happy for babies.

    Generally, this close to an election, the trend was to wait until after to fill
    the seat.

    I read that, and that was the case when Obama was president, but now it's up to Trump & McConnel, and it looks like we're gonna go ahead & take a stand for the unborn.

    Hello Charles,

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg died today, I just read. I wish her family the
    best.

    Cancer sucks. I don't care where you are on the political spectrum.

    Four cancers. All at the same time. Pancreatic cancer was the one
    that finally did her in. Surprised she lasted as long as she did.

    But I also wonder what does this mean for her spot in the Supreme
    Court? Does this give Trump yet another opportunity to fill a AT>seat before the end of his term?

    Generally, this close to an election, the trend was to wait until after to
    fill the seat.

    Not for Moscow Mitch.

    Trump will nominate a new justice.
    Moscow Mitch will grant him/her a hearing,
    and a vote. The only question being will
    this be before, or after, the election.

    Remember what Moscow Mitch did in 2016.
    He invoked "The Biden Rule" - a rule of
    his own creation. Said he would not allow
    the president to seat a new justice on
    the USSC during an election year. Why?
    Because "the American people" had to have
    a say. Remember, it was an election year.

    Well, guess what? This is 2020. Another
    election year. Do you think Moscow Mitch
    is going to invoke his own made-up rule
    in order to deny his own president the
    right to nominate a justice to the USSC?

    Not gonna happen, my man.

    Moscow Mitch is a hypocrite. Just like
    his president, and fellow Republicans.

    Hello Aaron,

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg died today, I just read. I wish her family the best.

    My condolences to her family.

    But I also wonder what does this mean for her spot in the Supreme Court?

    She is no longer on the Supreme Court.

    Does this give Trump yet another opportunity to fill a seat before the end
    of his term?

    He can nominate a new justice to the Supreme Court any time he wants.
    But is under no obligation to do so.

    And if so, what does this mean for Roe v. Wade?

    Nothing. The USSC could have overturned Roe V. Wade long ago
    had it wanted to. But Republicans wanted to keep the status quo,
    in order to use the issue of abortion as a political weapon.

    RBG might have just saved a lot of babies!

    Being pro-life means from the moment of conception and throughout
    life to the time of natural death. I do not see many of those so-called "pro-life" folks calling for an end to the death penalty, or for all
    people to have access to quality health care.

    Making him a bona fide liar, given his statement in 2016 denying
    President Obama's nominee a vote on the senate floor, as well as
    denying him so much as a hearing.

    Pretty cool! Not happy that RBG has passed, but very happy for babies.

    I am sure the Democrats will pull out all the stops to keep Trump's
    nominee from being confirmed. And I am also sure Trump will also get
    his way. Howeveer, once Joe Biden takes the oath of office it is
    going to be a whole new ball game. Just think how much fun he will
    be having naming at least four new justices to the Supreme Court -
    and that is just in his first month in office.

    Mitch will probably move pretty fast for a conservative cause, and I would expect nothing less from him.

    It's like this, Lee,

    If the democrats weren't so unfair with us, we'd have no reason to rush the nomination, but since radical democrats have caused all this hurt and neglect, we (Republicans) are out for blood! When
    a dictatorlike governor starts telling me that it's no longer a jailable offense to rob people, I am ready to take hostages (joking) to the polls to
    fix this crap.

    Previosly, I'd give a Democrat a break for some garbage policy, but now
    they have destroyed my state. I just bought an awesome house here 3 years ago, but I only wish I could pack it up and move it to a state that jails people!

    Just wait until your Democrats start doing this horrible crap that they're doing here. Don't hesitate to feed them to the gators once they close down your jails.

    Moscow Mitch's lie for refusing to allow a hearing or a vote
    for a president's nomination for a justice on the USSC has been
    exposed. What was the lie? In 2016 he said no president should
    be allowed to have a justice who has been nominated during an
    election year confirmed by the Senate. Well, guess what? This is
    an election year. And Moscow Mitch says it is perfectly fine for
    the president to nominate a justice and for the Senate to confirm
    that nominee during an election year. What a fucking hypocrite.

    is a conservative. Mitt Romney has bent his knee to the orange
    clown, showing the entire world who is his master.

    But wasn't Mitt Romney being good to you when he voted for Trump's

    Trump was already impeached by the House.

    Yes and he was also acquitted also.

    Once impeached, always impeached. Romney was not the only US Senator
    who voted to remove him from office. It would have taken a two-thirds
    vote to accomplish that feat.

    You see, impeachment is like a permanent stain. What is different
    is that Trump managed to do it in his first (and only) term. Although
    it is true Nancy Pelosi has threatened to do it again before he is
    voted out of office on November 3rd.

    Romney merely winked in approval, as his Republican
    colleagues already had enough votes to keep the clown
    in office.
    And now he's back to being a lousy butt sniffer?
    Same as his Republican colleagues.

    Romney is no fool, he can see of what is about to happen when Trump is
