Ruth Bader Ginsberg Dead At 87: McConnell Promises Quick Vote On Replacement

The liberal icon has gone to meet her maker, let her rest in peace. Because down here on Earth we get

McConnell: Trump’s Supreme Court nominee ‘will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

Ginsburg, 87, died Friday from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer.

“The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life,” McConnell said in a statement Friday.

“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise,” McConnell continued. “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”

McConnell added that “by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary.”

“Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

Gauntlet thrown down, eh? McConnell knows that there is no possible way to do this before the election. There would be no time for hearings, and too many are campaigning to do it properly. Plus you have crazies like Susan Collins who is doing her RINO stuff already. Win or lose, Senate and or President, they can do it after the election. McConnell could lose Collins and Romney, who would show their true leanings, and even one more GOP senator for the vote, with Pence giving the tie breaking vote to install a Trump pick.

Ruth herself went a little unhinged prior to her passing

Vox notes that Ginsburg had her last word on Trump last year, admitting during a talk on stage at Amherst College that she thought Trump was “an aberration.” That’s what we all hope against hope, right?

As NPR reports, Ginsburg reportedly dictated a statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera a few days before her death saying, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

But, really, what McConnell is doing is reminding people why elections are important. If Biden wins and gets his pick, the nature of the court doesn’t change. But, just imagine replacing RBG with a stalwart Constitutionalist justice, which would keep the court from being nutty leftist for decades to come. McConnell wants this fight, he wants the media focused on it, he wants squishy Republicans, Independents, and even old school Democrats who aren’t unhinged Leftists to talk about this and understand what’s at stake for this election.

And he’ll be happy if this exposes Democrats for the unhinged, violent tools they are

There’s more where that came from at the link, and you know plenty more are writing the same. There’s plenty of Barking Moonbat Level 10 under the tweets, in comments sections at places like the Democratic Underground (BTW, suddenly Dems are good with religious music) and mainstream sites that still allow comments.

And then there’s this, below the fold

    The bigger picture here is; and you can see it on twitter where leftists were actually calling her names and lamenting why she didn’t die or retire while Obama was president etc.

    The left is on fire right now in a bad way. They realize what just happened. Oh not that Trump might appoint another conservative justice. No, that might never even pass a vote as there are 3 or 4 senators that need or want to keep their jobs in the upcoming election and voting on a rammed through Supreme is most likely going to not happen as it could cost them or at least further hurt their chances of being reelected.

    SO. With her death that leave 3 liberals on the Supreme court and then there is justice Roberts. If they do not select a replacement a 5-3 or 4-4 is the guaranteed outcome of a challenge by Trump to all this insidious non stop mail in voting after election day. The dems plan to keep counting votes until miraculously two months after the election they finally get enough votes to win the EC.

    Trump will go to the Supreme Court to stop this and will win with a 5-3 vote. 4 conservative justices and Roberts will never let this end in a tie and go back to the lower court who will say, sure lets vote for a year, two years until Biden wins. Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi is president for 2 years as the dems keep this in perpetuity.

    Just as the Supreme court had to finally set in and set a precedent for tying up the election and declaring Trump the winner by the way in a court that was majority Liberal at the time. GONE is the Democrats last chance to steal the 2020 election with her death. Even if no Justice is appointed to replace her, it is still very unlikely that the supreme court would side with Voting from now till doomsday.

      This should read that the Supreme court had to finally step in and set a precedent for tying up elections and declare Bush the winner, Vs Al Gore, by a court at the time that was a majority Liberal, 4-3 with two swing votes at the time.

    TEACH typed: There would be no time for hearings, and too many are campaigning to do it properly.

    At least TEACH admits that the NuGOP plan is improper.

    Mitch: “Hearings? We don’t need no stinkin’ hearings!”

    Since when did the NuGOP worry about doing anything properly? The pollyannish Dems talk about the ideals of America – freedom, rights, justice – while Republicans drink their milkshake. The NuGOP played the long game and won. They realized that a party of white, non-college men was going over a demographic waterfall, so they started working at the grass roots. Winning local elections, state elections, suppressing Dem votes, gerrymandering… recall that federal elections are determined state by state. It’s how the last two NuGOP Presidents lost the popular vote but took power. It’s how Dems win more votes nationwide but lose the Senate. The only hope is a voter response that overwhelms NuGOP subterfuge.

    • Professor Hale says:

      No hearings are needed. Democrats already have someone to claim that person to be named later touched them inappropriately or said something racist at a party 30 years ago and Republicans don’t care. Just like last time, we already know it will be a party-line vote, no matter who is nominated. So, just vote already. Democrats have turned Senate confirmation hearings into circuses. No reason for anyone serious about government to bother with them.

      • formwiz says:

        I’m sure Christine Floozy Ford will come out of the closet to claim whomever-it-is raped her at a school party.

    • formwiz says:

      Have to disagree with the prof on hearings. The Honorables out on the campaign trail would be called back to DC. And there’s plenty of time.

      As I noted yesterday:

      Since when did the NuGOP worry about doing anything properly? The pollyannish Dems talk about the ideals of America – freedom, rights, justice – while Republicans drink their milkshake. The NuGOP played the long game and won.

      Blah, blah, blah, blah…

      Jeffery’s just mad because the Demos are being beaten at their own game.

    And finally since we are on the subject of the resistance. The Occupy White House has been canceled because Trump is throwing these people in prison for LIFE. He has deputized the state police and all these looters and rioters and Anarchists go to Federal Judges bypassing local AG’s bought and paid for by George Soros who have been turning them lose and dropping the charges.

    One man in NYC has been charged with two murders and is out on ZERO DOLLARS BAIL.

    Incidentally the George Soros accusation is absolutely True. He has since 2014 spent ungodly amounts of money on AG races. Some county AG’s have received up to 2 million for their election such as the Cook County AG in charge of Chicago and you can see the results with her handling of the Jesse Smollet case etc.

    Minneapolis city council who voted to defund the police and disband the police are now screaming at the Police chief in a Zoom Meeting where each of them are lamenting the crime in their districts and demanding from the BLACK POLICE CHIEF what he is going to do about it!!!!

    Thank God for Trump. Elwood here is the perfect example of the crazed left.

    A personal note. I was at the bank yesterday and I said in passing I sure will be glad when this covid-19 is over and they have a cure. The girl behind the counter then started talking about the virus and how she had it a few months ago and it was nothing. She did most of the talking, I just listened and nodded.

    I left the bank some guy about 55 years old ran up to my face, I could tell he was unarmed as my extensive training taught me to do, but he Yelled I heard you talking in the bank and you mother fukkers need to understand that this virus is deadly as hello and WHY ARENT YOU WEARING A MASK.

    The man himself was maskless. I ask dude your get up in my face and you have no mask on where is yours? He backs up and says its in his car I say mines in my Truck. He then begins ranting and raving and screaming and spittle flying everywhere about Donald Trump and how awesome Faucci is and how deadly the Covid-19 is and were all gonna die, every 3-4 word is a cuss word and basically I just let him rant because trying to get a word in edge wise only fired him up more.

    He told me to get my news from reliable sources. Which is? I asked? Rachel Maddow. Oh gotcha.

    I could go on and on. Bank security came into the parking lot and so he got in his car and left and followed me to work. I Imagine he had an OH shit moment when he saw the parking lot I entered and could not follow me.

    My first real face to face with one of these crazed leftists who live in an echo chamber and are totally irrational. Fortunately for both of us he did not have violence on his mind because I am no spring chicken anymore and it probably would not have ended well for both of us. Me because of my advanced age and him because he was just conducting business at the bank and was then on about a dozen video cameras.

    When it comes to politics people have lost their minds and this Supreme court thing is going to set the left off into a mindless rage. Standby for the Resistance part two leading up to election day.

    I don’t think I ever agreed with RBG on any decision she made. That said the old broad hung on to her beliefs with the tenacity of a ferret. I figure if she and Justice Scalia whom I did agree with and very much admired for his strong pro Constitution opinions could be close friends she couldn’t be all that bad.

    I do recall her saying if she was drafting a constitution today she would not look to ours for guidance. That is the statement of a typical closed minded leftist. She should never have been on the SC as it was her job to make sure laws coincided with the directions and intent of our Constitution and therefore if she was not willing to do that and rather change the meanings therein should not have been there.

    BTW, nobody has to rush anything although you must admit it would be fun to watch the hysterics and insanity the Democommies would put on display if they did.

    Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution provides that:

    The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

    Thus, when the Senate is in recess, the President may make a temporary appointment to any office requiring Senate approval, including filling vacancies on the Supreme Court, without the Senate’s advice and consent. Such a recess appointee to the Supreme Court holds office only until the end of the next Senate session (always less than two years).

    Piere Delecto, Murkowski and Collins can’t do Schiff about it. Neither can Elwood.

    Trump 2020 Let’s get someone who loves America and our Constitution.

    Another irrational leftist shows her affection, intellect and reasoning about RBG:

    So much for Trump winning that Nobel Peace Prize. Darth Bader Ginsberg will be awarded it posthumously.

    • Professor Hale says:

      For finally dying and doing it during Trump’s term, she deserves it. If the Nobel peace prize is going to become a posthumous award, I would like to nominate Soto and Kagan too.

  6. Professor Hale says:

    I’m pretty sure threatening to “burn the entire thing down” is a violation of law and not protected by free speech.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Saying “burn the entire thing down” is protected speech. Connies may not like it.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Actually “incitement” is not.
        But Rimjob is the “expert” here on the Constitution but he’s too lazy or too f#cking stupid to look it up.
        But it is expected that he will post stupid things just to incite.

      • formwiz says:

        It is?

        There are laws about incitement to riot, etc.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Perfesser Hell had gone full Death Wish 45!!

    We nominate Donald J. Trump for the posthumous Nobel Prize (or Noble Prize as trump thinks).

    Not to mention Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito, Neil M. Gorsuch, Brett M. Kavanaugh.

    Let’s add Mitch McConnell. The sooner they’re eligible, the better.

    We need to prepare to burn down every polling place in every Democrat area. And any place receiving ballots after 11/3. Burn them all down.
