While I am glad to see one less radical leftist member of the Supreme Court gone, I have to extend my condolences to Ginsburg’s family for their loss. But, this creates a potential powder keg situation for the country.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016. Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace him. Republican leadership, they controlled the Senate, said that the vacancy should not be filled until after the Presidential election in 2016, and the new President was sworn in.
Now, McConnell is saying something entirely different. He has stated multiple times in the last 5 months that he would allow Trump to nominate and a vote would be taken on any Court vacancy.
Ouch, obviously a double standard as well as hypocrisy at its worse. But there is a potentially much larger problem…violence. Or, I should say much more violence.
What do you think will happen if Trump is allowed to nominate a Conservative to fill Ginsburg’s vacancy…and the Senate confirms? Actually, they will go ballistic when Trump is allowed to nominate, they will go more ballistic when the hearings take place…and they will go nuclear if a nominee is confirmed if this is done before the election. And double that if Trump is defeated and this stills goes through before January 20th when Trump would leave office.
We could potentially see an open armed rebellion in the streets.
Prepare now for that eventuality.
Note: I am working on another piece; it is in its final editing. Three weeks’ worth of work has gone into the research and editing. I hope to get it out on Monday. With this Ginsburg vacancy development I have to “war game” what, if any, differences it may make in my opinion.
Stand-by! Prepare now!
