    Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) released a statement on the Supreme Court nomination on Sunday. Alexander, who is known for being a RINO, actually stood with President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and said he will vote on Trump’s SCOTUS nominee. “No one should be surprised that a Republican Senate majority would vote on a Republican President’s Supreme Court nomination, even during a presidential election year,” Senator Alexander said. He added, “The Constitution gives senators the power to do it. The voters who elected them expect it. Going back to George Washington, the Senate has confirmed many nominees to...

    The feces are going to hit the fan harder than it has at any point throughout the Trump administration. If you thought the Kavanaugh confirmation was a fight, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. If you weren’t excited about voting before… The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has given the election even more urgency than it had before. Yes, I realize that’s an understatement, but sometimes the simplest words are the best. Democrats have made no mystery of their plans should they ever obtain power again, and it’s not good for fans of individual liberty, personal responsibility, or...

Friday night was re-start night in Portland, and on Saturday they cranked back up in New York City, Washington DC and Philadelphia.

    Fox News ^ | 9/20/2020 | Sen. Ted Cruz
    On Friday, our nation lost a historic Supreme Court Justice: Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a brilliant justice, a legendary advocate, a careful lawyer, and, as only the second woman to ever serve on the Supreme Court, a trailblazer. She led an extraordinary life that shaped the lives of others and she leaves behind her an extraordinary legacy. Much like the news in 2016 of the great Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s passing during an election year, Friday’s news was instantaneously followed by the question of when to fill the vacancy that now stands on the Court. Here’s why President...

    President Donald Trump's announced Saturday night that the Supreme Court nominee he plans to announce next week to fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be a woman, spotlighting two conservative women as his potential pick. During a campaign rally in North Carolina, Trump declared 'I will be putting forth a nominee this week, it will be a woman', later adding his pick would be a 'very talented, very brilliant woman' because 'I like women more than I like men'. As he left the White House for the rally, the president identified two women as front runners: Amy...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/20/2020 | Pete McArdle
    Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any crazier, Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg suddenly departs this world for, hopefully, a better one. You have to respect that anyone strong, smart, and principled enough to serve on the Supreme Court. Supreme Court justices carry a heavy burden and do so for decades longer than presidents. The Notorious RBG, as she was called, was a saint to all Democrats and a heroine to women around the world. Her colleagues called her brilliant. Can't beat that. Still, many Americans, especially Catholics, had a problem with Justice Ginsburg's staunch support for abortion....

    (Reuters) - The death of liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday could spell bad news for Democrats if a legal battle over the results of the Nov. 3 presidential election reaches the high court, as it did in 2000. If President Donald Trump, a Republican, is able to install a conservative replacement in time, the new justice could help resolve any dispute in favor of the president - an outcome that would deepen the country's partisan divide and threaten the court's reputation as an independent arbiter, some legal experts said. "People's views of Bush v. Gore would...

    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...

    Left-wing Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner is declaring war on Republicans over who will replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. He has also accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of disrespecting Ginsburg by vowing to give President Trump’s nominee a floor vote in the Senate. The Princess Bride director made the fiery comments in a tweet on Saturday morning. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave,” he said. “This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them.”

    Trump has confirmed that he will pick a woman for the seat. Using his most recent list, here is who that could be: Bridget Bade, a judge on 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Prior to her appointment in 2019, Judge Bade was a United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Arizona and an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Arizona. Judge Bade served as a law clerk to Judge Edith H. Jones of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Judge Bade earned her B.A., summa cum laude, from Arizona State University and her...

    The Supreme Court announced at 7:28 p.m. Friday that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of complications from pancreatic cancer. NPR reported that the 87-year-old liberal lioness dictated this statement to her granddaughter as she lost strength in her final days: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” 1) Trump will probably nominate a woman in the next few days. 2) A Senate vote on Trump’s nominee seems most likely to occur during the lame-duck session, after the election. 3) This vacancy gives Trump the opportunity to reframe the presidential race...

    This weekend, the nation will honor the legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died at age 87; soon thereafter, former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign must seize the moment and stake out a landmark candidate to replace the beloved jurist. The nominee must be someone who advances the cause of racial and gender justice and quells Republican efforts to bum-rush a replacement. What it means is that the Biden campaign cannot simply propose to nominate a woman of traditional qualifications for the court. If it is to make history, then it must spotlight a woman who...

    President Donald Trump said Saturday evening that he will choose a candidate to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court seat next week and his candidate will be a woman. "I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman," Trump said during a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Trump told rallygoers that Ginsburg's "landmark rulings, fierce devotion to justice and her courageous battle against cancer inspire all Americans," offering prayers to the justice's family. The President also noted her friendship with the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, saying it's "a powerful reminder...
