Left-wing media figures rushed to threaten violent riots on Friday evening if President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) attempt to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away earlier in the day.

Reza Aslan, who used to have a show on CNN, responded by writing: "If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down."


You all have been threatening, and attempting that for 4 years now. This is a terrorist threat. Thanks to all the traitors to America for poking their heads out today. You make this all too easy for us. https://t.co/D917dCddj9https://t.co/2GBCzlRxhYpic.twitter.com/yYfIuHCGin

Political writer Laura Bassett echoed a similar sentiment, but stopped short of making a threat, writing: "If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots. … *more, bigger riots."


Thanks, Laura, for letting us know who has been behind the riots. https://t.co/32chOHcsmUpic.twitter.com/ErSvDSd6dl

Vic, there are more than enough no votes to prevent a Trump SC appointment IF the Republics that have previously said they would not vote yes to an election year appointment keep their word. 

Would you prefer that the Republic senators keep their word and act like men and women, or that they be low down lying dogs?

I also told you over there that Sens Murkowski & Collins would probably vote against the move. Not to mention Trump-hater Romney.

Lindsey Graham is on video in 2018 saying he would not vote yes to an election year SC appointment, and says the viewer should hold him to it.  Will you hold him to it? There are more than enough Republic senators on record saying they would not vote yes in these circumstances. So why even make a nomination ?

He is in a very tough Senate race this time. He will look to internal polling to find that answer.

Answer - Politics!  McConnell shows Evangelicals and Pro-Life groups that the Senate took the vote. Then Republican Senators in tough re-election fights (there are 3) can vote whatever way their constituents want. On this rare occasion, McConnell may just hold a vote without counting heads.

The same way Democratic Senators that were screaming for Obama's nominee to be appointed are now hypocrites?

Fuck the Democrats. They wouldn't hesitate to pull the exact same shit as the Republicans if the positions had been reversed.

Remember the nuclear option? The Republicans have the votes. Time for the Democrats to burn some shit down showing their "tolerance".

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/nuclear-option-why-trumps-supreme-court-pick-needs-only-51-votes-in-the-senate/

So the Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Nevada's Harry Reid, decided to pull the trigger. The nuclear option was implemented for the first time, and the Senate rules were changed so nominees for cabinet posts and federal judgeships could be confirmed with just 51 votes. Republicans cried foul, despite threatening the nuclear option in the past, and Democrats who had been opposed to such a rule change quickly changed their tune. Then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said at the time, "You'll regret this, and you may regret this a lot sooner than you think."

But did that apply to Supreme Court nominees?

It did not – Reid did not change the rules for the Supreme Court, meaning nominees still effectively needed to meet the 60-vote threshold to avoid a filibuster.

But then the Senate and White House changed hands again. Republicans took the Senate in the 2014 elections and refused to consider President Obama's pick for the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell instead waited for the 2016 election, hoping a Republican would be elected president and nominate Scalia's successor.

McConnell's move was criticized as an unprecedented breach of political norms, but he got his wish when Mr. Trump was elected. Mr. Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat in 2017, but with the GOP possessing only a narrow majority in the Senate, McConnell and his Republicans reached for the nuclear option.

Once again, the parties flipped sides on whether the nuclear option was justified. New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader, said he regretted that Reid had used the nuclear option in 2013, even though he had backed the move at the time. McConnell, an outspoken opponent of using the nuclear option when he was in the minority, now justified its use by citing what Reid did as precedent.

The Senate rules were changed for Supreme Court nominees, allowing them to be confirmed by a simple majority. The conservative Gorsuch was confirmed days later to the Senate in a 54-to-45 vote .

Fuck the Democrats. They are every bit as bad as the Republicans. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. Of course they have something Republicans don't- fucking Brown Shirts willing to "burn everything the fuck down" if they don't get their way.

There are five names mentioned in the article. No one has ever heard of four of them and the fifth Reza Aslan is barely known. 

The seed is meaningless, although the Democrats in Congress do need to threaten the Republics with drastic consequences if they try to push through with a Supreme Court nomination.  The ones most proposed at this point are an end to the filibuster rule and an expansion of the Supreme Court once the Democrats retake the Senate. 

The Republics have no honor or decency and they must be made to pay a price.

It's great to know that the two senators from Texas are a couple of liars. 

Cruz and Cornyn comments from the last debacle.

And there are a number of other GOP senators that were against this just a few years ago.  

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas):

“I believe the American people deserve to have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice, and the best way to ensure that happens is to have the Senate consider a nomination made by the next President.

Confirming a new Supreme Court Justice during a presidential election year for a vacancy arising that same year is not common in our nation’s history; the last time it happened was in 1932. And it has been almost 130 years since a presidential election year nominee was confirmed for a vacancy arising the same year under divided government as we have today.

In 1992, while serving as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and with a Republican in the White House, Vice President Joe Biden said his committee should “seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings” on any potential nominees until the campaign season was over.” ( source )

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas):   “It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don’t do this in an election year.” ( source )

Because they said so..DUH

Texas’ two senators — who will likely be tasked with the confirmation of Ginsburg’s successor — were quick to issue statements commemorating her sweeping influence on American legal life. Both men also made clear that confirming her replacement either in the 45 days before Election Day or before the next inauguration was immediately on their minds. Four years ago, both men strongly opposed confirming Merrick Garland, the nominee proposed by President Barack Obama as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia. Scalia died more than eight months before the 2016 presidential election. https://www.texastribune.org/2020/09/18/ted-cruz-john-cornyn-supreme-court/

In 2016 Obama had no chance of being reelected as president and the Republicans controlled the Senate.  This time around Trump has a chance of being reelected and the Republicans control the Senate.  When in 2024 if Trump has a chance to nominate another justice and the Democrats somehow regain the Senate then they can do the same as what happened to Obama and I will not complain about it, would that be fair.

OK, a couple of months short of his last year in office. IMO, I don't think it matters one way or the other if it's Obama's last year or not. He's the president and should name a judge to replace him.

What I wanted was for Obama to nominate a moderate and for the Senate to take up a vote on it. 

Obama did nominate a qualified moderate but Republicans didn't have the balls to take to a vote. The excuse was no nominations or votes with less than a year to go in Obama's term. (9 months). Now when the shoe is on the other foot McConnel wants to push it through in 6 weeks. The exact opposite of what he was pleading 4 years ago. 

He and the other GOP Senators that were so adamant 4 years ago are now showing us what a group of hypocrites they are.

 My comment from four years ago was right on target with regard to the republicans. 

Thank you for your continuing questions, it allowed me to keep showing what a sack of hypocrites the GOP senators are.

Even Joe has said that the people vote in the president, the president nominates a SC justice.

More than likely he believes he is now the president and he should be the one to nominate a justice.

Maybe one day he will realize he is not president and Trump is. When that happens he will change his tune again.,
