  1. Ginsburg In 2016: ‘Nothing In Constitution’ Prevents President From Final Year SCOTUS Pick

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in 2016 that there is “nothing in the Constitution” that prevents a president from filling a vacant seat on the high court in his final year in office.

    Ginsburg’s words came after colleague Justice Antonin Scalia passed away in February 2016 and then-President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to fill the seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) refused to bring up the nomination in the GOP-controlled chamber.

    “Asked if the Senate had an obligation to assess Judge Garland’s qualifications, her answer was immediate,” The New York Times reported in July 2016.

    “That’s their job,” she said. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.”


    • Facts, like Ginsburg’s own words, mean nothing to the far left Democrats like Pelosi, Schumer, Shiff, Waters and AOC’s Squad. The new Democrat party is not the party of JFK or even Clinton, it’s like a Shrine Circus clown car that only turns left.

  2. I grew up in Evansville, but now live in DC. First off, what is going on is not protesting. It is either rioting or domestic terrorism. I cannot begin to describe the horrors, but I shall try.

    From sunup to sundown, business goes on as usual. Once the sun goes down, the city turns into Beirut circa 1980. Rioters, often with no permits, will start marching, usually from Southeast DC to Columbia Heights and/or Dupont Circle. Along the way, motorists who do not see it coming either have to find an alternative route or risk having their car surrounded and face being threatened by a mob. I’ve witnessed MPD on multiple occasions having to save motorist from becoming Reginald Denny.

    Then, because of COVID restrictions, most dining us now outdoors. They will harass diners, and when diners do not make a black power fist for the mob, the diner will at minimum get a bull horn to the ear and yelled at, or, even worse get completely surrounded by the mob.

    They have attacked people walking their dogs, as according to them the act of having a dog shows your white supremacy. They have attacked people grilling on their patio, and these are just the ordinary people. They have burned churches and businesses, and they attempted to murder Senator Rand Paul.

    The mayor has on multiple occasions ordered MPD to stand down, and the mayor even ordered the National Guard that came from other states to be evicted from local hotels. The guard had to sleep in the street while preventing domestic terrorists from overrunning the White House.

    You are incredibly lucky that EPD stopped the out of town folks who showed up after George Floyd’s death, but they aren’t going to stop until someone stops them.
