When RBG fell asleep at the State of the Union address, it really was no big deal. How many listen anyway?
The argument has begun on who should nominate Ginsburg’s replacement to the Supreme Court.
Here is the skinny on that: It does not make any difference who is in the White House, a Democrat or a Republican………..each party is going to fight to gain the “chance/right” to make that selection. Democrats will argue that the nomination should be delayed, so if a miracle happens and they win the election…….they can nominate the Justice. They’ll even say it was Ginsburg’s dying wish not to let Trump nominate her replacement…..and maybe it was; but, it is still the sitting president’s decision to make.
The Democrats are cringing to think Trump will name another Supreme Court Justice. They will do anything/say anything not to let that happen. If the roles were reversed the Republican’s would do the same. EVERYBODY wants to change the rules when their party is not in the Oval Office.
It is Trump’s decision to make and the Democrats, not Nancy Pelosi, not Joe Biden, not Chuck Schumer, not even Adam Schiff or Alexandria Ocasio Cortez can do a damn thing about it. Oh, crazy Chuck can vote no when it is put to a vote……..but that is all folks. They will pull every dirty trick in the book to delay. We’ll hear of new scandals, mark my words.
Ask yourself: If Hillary had been elected president what do you think she would do? YOU KNOW WHAT SHE WOULD DO!
We can not allow this to happen. It would only get swampier. I don’t think Biden will get elected to begin with. However, shouldn’t Republicans have an “INSURANCE PLAN”? Isn’t that how it works? (comment by The ArlinReport)
Barack Obama himself reportedly remains downbeat about Joe Biden’s 2020 election bid, claiming that the former US Vice President lacks an “intimate bond” with electorate. Democratic presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden has again suggested that the Obamas would be given important jobs in his administration should he win the 2020 Presidential election.

Claire McCaskill is in a fight for her Senate seat, a liberal, far left seat (Democrat, as if I need to remind you). Claire’s campaign ads are designed to convince Missouri voters that she is a “moderate” (an in the middle, independent thinker). That could not be further from the truth. Claire McCaskill is a Hillary/Obama follower, one of their lost puppies. Undercover videos now show Claire’s own staff saying “…….people can’t know that.”, on Claire’s position on gun control, telling voters one thing but supporting the opposite; she is far to the left on gun control. Claire is not in the middle, not a moderate.
Claire McCaskill is a far left, liberal as it gets Democrat. A vote for Claire is a vote for Chuck Schumer. Yes Schumer and McCaskill, the do anything it takes to keep Brett Kavanaugh from be confirmed to the Supreme Court fake moderates!

From Stilton Jarlsberg: History was made yesterday when, for the first time since our nation became a nation, Democrats filibustered an exemplary Supreme Court Nominee because – and we’ve got plenty of political scientists and analysts to back us up on this – they’re complete and total assholes. The only way around this epic act…
Hillary Clinton The Movie “Banned” by the Courts in 2008 The U.S. Supreme Court said it wants a case involving federal election law and an attack “documentary” on Hillary Clinton reheard next September. The justices said new “argument” should address two key Supreme Court precedents upholding “federal election law” and whether the high court should […]
When truth is written on anything by anyone at anytime it should not be banned. It should not matter if it is during or prior to an election. The truth should always be allowed to be spoken and heard; NEVER BANNED. “What difference does it make”; whether it is a union, organized labor, special interests group…….The truth is so rare today, when spoken is an asset. If on the other hand the message, the movie or writing is found to be false, appropriate punishment and banishment is the law.
Banishment of truth should not be allowed to protect guilt! There should be no escape for the guilty.
The media, once again taking it upon itself to twist every opportunity it can into a political correctness and racial issue. 94.5 Dallas and 97.5 The Beat, to name just a couple are bringing out the race card against Trump once again. Trump’s “possible” selections for the Supreme Court did not include an African-American. Oh the sin of it all!! It is not a requirement to include a specific race, religion or even gender in a list for “POSSIBLE” candidates for THE COURT.
Could Trump have included a black man or woman to satisfy the MEDIA or the LEFT? Yes, just make a token candidate for THE COURT. The media should know as well as anyone, Trump will not be politically correct for the sake of satisfying or shutting people up.
What is wrong with making a list, checking it twice with simply the best conservative choices out there regardless of skin tone or gender. Then again, that explains the media’s twist and fabricated issue; they aren’t conservative; so no matter what Trump came up with, they would contradict. The liberal media!!! Opportunistic media!
Trump will not, nor should he cave into the will of the Media.

This morning on my Arlin Report Thought of the Day post, I mentioned Antonin Scalia’s death was another mystery. While it still may be a mystery as to the exact cause, it should be stated the Supreme Court jurist was having health issues, heart problems being one.
I have learned of Scalia’s health from a fellow blogger, I have much respect for that was good enough to inform me, as well as others stating the same.
That being said, with a government and the height of corruption in this nation it is easy to be suspicious and certainly question everything. It appears most likely that Scalia died from a health issue/natural causes, hopefully he passed peacefully.
First, shame on all of the political stiffs making a political issue out of the loss of Supreme Court Judge Scalia before he has even been laid to rest. Immediately the debate/fight is on that Obama should or should not appoint his replacement, or that it should be left to the next president elect.
How naive are the republicans to believe/wish that Obama wouldn’t make the appointment, when they know darn well he will? They are not naive at all, just political, just making a political issue.
The political appointment is critical, but Obama will do what any president, Democrat, Republican, Independent, Socialist or alien would do. Politics in America is so phony.
