        The Democrats have long given up any pretense of working “across the aisle”, if that was even ever beneficial to Republicans, and are in slash and burn mode under the Pelosi II regime in DC.

        So, Conan is completely correct. You get nothing in return except grief for not pressing your advantage to the fullest extent.Any Republicans protesting, should be noted and placed on the list of disposable.

      Remember the kerfuffle when Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was jammed in the Senate for over 11 months and the issue came down to the next POTUS making the nomination as the result of the election would show the people’s will? Would sound a by hypocritical to go and make a lame duck nomination while trying to get a contentious Senate to approve the nomination.

      In any event it’s sorta pointless to try and slam a conservative justice in as the Rats have, as I’ve said before, decided to recycle FDR’s plan to add three more seats to the SCOTUS and have their Rat POTUS pack it and render Congress moot. As a SCOTUS Justice doesn’t have to be a lawyer or even have a law degree they could choose from a raft of social philosophers and other soft-science types if they wanted or just raid the ranks of the Leftist law schools for the most leftestest otherwise-unemployable Great Giant Law Heads who would make RBG look like Scalia.

          True dat but the MSM isn’t really covering the battles going on in the purple states to flip to Rat Senators. It takes at least $10-million to mount a Senate run and

          Liz Warren spent over $42-million in 2013 to fight for her seat, I don’t have her 2018 expenditures but you can bet it was at least equal to 2013’s. There’s a lot of heat and money being dedicated to getting the Senate back into Raty hands to ensure a deadlock even if Trump does win, as I said the MSM is not covering either the millions or where it’s coming from but you can bet it ain’t being gathered in coffee cans from the o-press-ed and downtrodden.

        Obama could not run for another term.
        Constitution doesn’t say the President only has a little more than three years to nominate a Supreme Court Justice.
        With all the election shenanigans planned by the Democrats, a 4-4 split allows the lower courts finding, as binding. Mitch, has placed enough judges to prevent that nonsense. Nor have enough court clerks been placed to avoid routing to ideologue judges, e.g. the cases of Flynn, Manafort, Stone etc.

          I wish General Flynn’s case could have made it to SCOTUS before Justice Ginsberg died. The decision by the 3-judge DC Circuit of Appeals relied heavily on a unanimous SCOTUS decision penned (supposedly) by Justice Ginsburg. His case could have netted a 9-0 SCOTUS slam dunk in his favor.

        There are two salient differences between the present and the Garfish situation. PDJT is not a lame duck–he can/will win another term. Also, We the People elected both a GOP POTUS and GOP majority in the Senate, thereby charging them with the duty of confirming judicial nominees. In the Garland situation, Obamao was a lame douche/duck and We the People had voted in a GOP Senate to stop his idiotic, leftist, anti-American appointments. Therefore, no confirmation for Garfish, but confirmation for PDJT’s nominee. Otherwise, your observations as to what the Demonrats would do is spot on–craziest most destructive BS they can gin up. They want to rule in Hell; so they’ve got to go to Hell.

    Every senator and candidate needs to be put on the record about whether the unprecedented act of packing the court is a viable option, especially for those arguing not to have a nomination now for whatever reasons of precedent, fairness, etc.

      I don’t trust McConnell, or his ‘paymasters’ AT ALL. By his actions, McConnell has attempted to thwart PDJT at every turn.
      Even his hurculean effort with Judges, gave him justification for not approving PDJT’s appointees, and dictating to PDJT “who can get confirmed”.

      McConnell clearly doesn’t want PDJT to have a second term. Which do he and his paymasters view as worse; a liberal replacement for RGB, or a second term for PDJT?
      Since CoC Donahue is McConnells paymaster, I am not at all convinced they would choose wisely.

      Wouldn’t put it past McConnell and Graham to set up an UNsuccessful nomination, in order to hurt PDJT’s reelection.

        Good point, DM. This nomination could be used to harm Trump’s reelection. I’d assume he’s got that gamed out as well, but it’s all about the execution of the game. I’d let McConnell go first on this, at least publicly. That’s the beauty of publishing the names as Trump’s done. He can wait for McConnell’s paymasters to agree on the schedule of events, state it publicly, then Trump can get involved and even nominate somebody, or not. He’s in control here, including McConnell’s reelection if it comes to that. Trump can turn on him at the last moment and attack him and the Swamp savagely. That’d be Trump’s ace in the hole if he was in electoral trouble, a Doomsday Machine as it were. I bet he holds that ace all the way up to election day, to leverage McConnell.

          Oh, man. Have you truly read none of my long posts, detailing the many perfidies of McConnell and Ryan?
          McConnell and Ryan HAD to have been involved in the coup, at the planning stages, cause the plan makes no sense, without Dems taking the House in 2018, so they could initiate Impeachment.
          And, ONLY Ryan could “guarantee” that, and we all WATCHED him guarantee it, gifting the Speakers gavel to Nanzi.

          The Grennell Ratcliffe manuever publically exposed what SOME of us had been saying, all along when “WHY does PDJT do so badly, at picking people for his admin.?

          McConnell has perverted “Advice and Consent” into “This is who can get confirmed” which actually means “you’ll take who I give you!” and, even denying PDJT recess appointments.

          It wasn’t McStain who torpedoed Obamacare R&R, it was Mitch. Guaranteed, if McStain had been too sick to thumbs down, McConnell had Flake warming up in the bullpen, to throw the thumb.

          The total LACK of inquiry into spygate, for 3 years, by ANY Senate committees? Not Graham, he’s just mitchs bitch.

          And, how about how he led a “Sing along with Mitch” with ALL the prominent Senate Republicons singing “For Muellers an HONORABLE man, his investigation MUST continue.

          I could go on and on, in fact I HAVE, and until now no one has attempted to defend Mitch.

          You REALLY want to?
          Pelosi is NOT PDJT’s biggest enemy in the Swamp, she’s small potatoes by comparison.

          It is MITCH, its ALWAYS been Mitch, who was recently asked abour election integrity concerns.
          Did he loudly echo PDJT’s and Barrs concerns about mass mailing of unrequested ballots?

          NO. He said he had no concerns. Vote by mail, vote in person, but vote.”

          In short, having done everything he could to prevent PDJT from completing his first term, and stymie PDJT’s progress in MAGA, what makes YOU think McConnell wants PDJT to have a SECOND term?

    Latinos: Donald Trump is our amigo

    (snip) Having said this, I’ll conclude by stating that in the upcoming presidential election Latinos face a clear choice. On the one hand, we have a bold and effective, albeit imperfect, leader in the person of Donald Trump. On the other hand, we have a person whose competence is seriously in question and whose overall policies, if implemented, could bring our nation to an irreversible state of economic mediocrity and to an irremissible condition of moral bankruptcy.

    The latter option, represented by Mr. Joseph Biden, promises Latinos lax immigration policies and government benefits of the kind that tend to hold individuals back from effectively developing as parents, professionals, and tax-paying workers.

    Latinos, however, know better. And, if we apply good judgement, we will overwhelmingly reject Biden’s offer. Why? Because we actually want the opposite of what he offers. We are and want to continue to be independent individuals and responsible parents. We are and want to continue to be citizens that add value to the system through our enterprising spirit and commitment to bring about the greatest achievements that our brains, hands, and hearts can muster, not only in fashion, arts, construction, agriculture, hospitality, and entertainment. But also, in math, science, politics, religion, literature, and every other virtuous realm of endeavor that human beings can pursue under heaven as we put on wings, breakdown shackles, and sever fetters.

      Excellent. Republicans would be wise to remember that the many people that come to this country want to be Americans. To participate in all this country offers, to contribute, and to realize the American dream. And if not for themselves, then to set the foundation for their children and grandchildren to do so. I had the fortunate experience to serve in some of these countries that are the source of our (legal) immigrants. They queue for blocks and blocks around our embassies for the chance to apply for entry visas. The want something better. They do not want to replicate in the United States the circumstances that are causing them to immigrate. Granted, my experiences abroad are now dated, but I am willing to bet that those lines around our embassies remain.

      Forced off the land and the commons, prison time for unemployment, or a one-way ticket to a workhouse. Starvation tariffs on corn and wheat, Rotten Boroughs, A House of Commons that represented the Land not the People. It wasn’t until maybe 1845 that Disraeli agreed that the government would include the commoners among those it represented. These things were in my mind as I listened.

      That having been said, and not to take a whit away, my favorite part was the sound effects when our speaker said with gravitas, ” I don’t have a dog in this fight.”

    Ricin Is Said to Have Been Sent to White House
    Letters with the lethal substance also were sent to federal offices in Texas, an official said. Investigators were trying to track down who sent them and whether more were circulating through the postal system.
    Sept. 19, 2020
    Updated 4:29 p.m. ET

    WASHINGTON — Letters sent in recent days to the White House and to federal agencies in Texas contained the lethal substance ricin, and investigators are trying to determine if other envelopes with the toxin were sent through the postal system, a law enforcement official briefed on the matter said on Saturday.

    Investigators believe that the letters were sent from Canada, and have identified a woman as a suspect, the official said.

    The letter to the White House, which was addressed to President Trump, was intercepted, as were the letters to the federal offices in Texas. It was not immediately clear on Saturday which federal offices were targeted.

    The envelope to the White House was caught at the final offsite processing facility where mail is screened before being sent to the White House mail room, according to a second law enforcement official. The Postal Service irradiates mail that is addressed to the White House and other federal agencies in the Washington area, and the mail is sorted in a facility that samples the air for suspicious substances.

      How Canada thought they could get China into a favorable to Canada trade deal while keeping within the USMCA is interesting. Because Canada is being run by TDS-infected clowns right now, they willingly gave up first position in NAFTA replacement talks. They will NEVER get that back.

    2) President names his choice but Senate doesn’t get that choice confirmed before 11/3/20 >> Increases Dems’ incentive to vote against Trump and GOP senators in hopes that ballot-tallying ends up in courts long enough to kill off Trump’s SCOTUS nomination.

    3) President picks AND his nominee is confirmed prior to Nov 3rd >> Dems will be angry as hell, but this fight will have been lost for them. Some may be dejected and the immediate tactical incentive to vote will be slightly reduced, even as the desire to vote out of revenge is increased.

    Conclusion: Get the nominee confirmed before Nov 3rd. Get it over with and behind us.

      The question is whether they can get the needed votes for a Trump nominee. Murkowski, Romney, and Collins are not reliable. You can bet Romney will vote against anything POTUS chooses. Murkowski says she won’t vote on a SCOTUS nominee before the election, and Collins has said the same as Murkowski, but she’s up for reelection and if enough of her constituents were to threaten to vote her out of office she may be pushed to vote for POTUS’s nominee. However, the real question is there are enough conservatives in her state to actually push her to do it.

      An impeachment against a president for doing his lawful duties in a lawful manner?

      I don’t see that Democrats and it is the Democrat’s proxy troops rioting in the streets can offer much when they imply threats. They, Democrats, have already carried out these threats and are attempting to blackmail the country into submission with even more violence. If Democrats aren’t put down hard as the unhinged political “party” they are, there will eventually be roving death squads on both sides battling it out.

      Anyway, in short what this Dick is suggesting is another impeachment.

    POTUS has a shortlist he’s been working on for more than three years. He doesn’t need to go into a chamber of secrets and we don’t have to wait for red smoke.
    Pick the name on the top of his list. Done.

    Get Mitch to schedule two weeks of discussion. Then vote. Every single member of the Senate knows how they are voting today. They honestly don’t need two weeks of bloviating and nauseating back-and-forth. No one is going to change their mind; no one is changing their vote depending on who the President selects. JUST VOTE.

I wouldn’t count out Sotomayor and Roberts either. Except for Roberts, they will all be 70 or older in 2024. Breyer 86, Thomas 76, Alito 74, Sotomayor 70.

    In 2016, Hillary Clinton’s idea of campaigning was impacted by her health and sense of entitlement to the Presidency. Hillary ran a very low-energy tour and ignored areas she deemed safely part of her BLUE WALL. This was proven to be wrong and she even, supposedly, ignored Bubba Clinton’s advice to campaign more widely. A crucial mistake, even though Trump worked his but off each and every hour to win the election.

    So what lesson have Democrats learned?

    They learned a lot from the primary process Clinton had to go through. It made it easier for them to screw Sanders again and install Biden as the Democrat presidential hopeful.

    And Biden can’t campaign at all.

    Biden can’t debate at all.

    Biden can’t take questions at all.

    Biden can’t even appear in public much at all.

    All of the above is basically true for Kamala Harris too. Because having never run a competitive campaign for office, I think it may be that she is mentally deficient and weak under ANY pressure.

    So they willingly picked and supported a candidate who can’t even act like a candidate, much less a president. Biden was always a puppet. Same for Harris. They will depend on the Democrat “ground game” writ large and in Technicolor, to secure the election.

      The visual absence of Kamala Harris let you know they didn’t vet her too good. They thought they had their hands full with Joe Biden. Her disaster of a primary run should have given them some hint of what they were dealing with. She has no qualities that say leadership. She has no qualities that are attractive to even Democrat voters. All they can do is hide her away and let Joe do the campaigning.

    The FISCR, the definition of a rubber stamp in 2016. What follows is extracts from their procedures manual.

    The review is expected to be done by the full court consisting of three judges but what the hay, they can just ignore the requirement and use one judge. If this is too much for them, they can just ignore all the rules and go directly to the verdict.

    Rule 2. Suspension of Rules.
    On its own or a party’s motion, the Court may-to expedite its decision or for
    other good cause-suspend any provision of these rules in a particular case and
    order proceedings as it directs.

    (3) A motion under Rule 6(b) must be filed with the Clerk and normally
    will be considered by all members of the FISCR. But in an
    exceptional case in which time requirements make that procedure
    impracticable, the motion may be made to and considered by a single
    FISCR judge.

    Rule 6. Stay Pending Appeal.
    (a) Initial Motion in the FISC. A party must ordinarily first move in the FISC
    for the following relief:
    (1) a stay of a FISC order pending appeal; or
    (2) an order suspending, modifying, restoring, or granting an injunction
    while an appeal is pending.
    (b)Motion in the Court of Appeals. A motion for relief described in Rule 6(a)
    may be made to the FISCR.
