My thoughts on Scalia's death


We no longer have the decency to allow a family even 24 hours to recover from the shock of a sudden death of a politician before politicizing the death.

Twitchy said, "Justice Antonin Scalia’s death sets ‘land-speed record’ for turning political."

I have news for David Frum. 4-4 votes are just fine until January 20, 2017, when we get a new president. Given the disrespect Democrats showed Republicans when they controlled all of Congress when Bush 43 was president, get bent.

Comity ended with Reid and Pelosi. This is how they want to play, the F them.

Scalia was a great justice who believed in civil liberty, and fought against the expansion of the federal government into a $4 trillion ogre that cannot protect us from Muslim terrorists and Mexican gangs. We do not need another sexist, racist like Sotomayor on the court. Barack Obama has twice shown he is incapable of appointing anyone other than a hack to the high court.

Meanwhile, Democrats are demanding a rubber-stamp Senate.

  1. What do you want to bet that the spineless Republicans in the Senate will cave? Pelosi and Reid have balls. Republicans don't. Republicans are pussies.

    1. Roll-Over Party leadership caving to LibDem demands will set a new land speed record.

  4. Oh, dear God. ALITO is alive. Scalia (RIP) is gone. Don't scare me like that. Conspiracy is alive enough without adding to it.

  5. Dear Mr. Frum;
    There is one Senate at a time and it retains all its constitutional powers & duties until the term ends.

    The Senate is under no obligation to rubber stamp a president's nominee.

  6. Now all we got to do is get the bastards to realize this. The base doesn't call them "The Stupid Party" for no reason.

    (and again I am going to complain about blogger putting the "sign out" button where most everyone else puts a post button.)

  7. Not being a Constitutional scholar, but I think that BO could do a recess appointment in Jan before the Senate reconvenes.

    1. In this instance, I think Obama will play the long game. The odds are in his favor. He will nominate a liberal, moderately left-of-center permanent replacement for Scalia but will hold in reserve a radical hard-left choice as a temporary recess appointment should the Senate refuse to consider his nominee for a permanent seat on the bench. The Senate Republicans will then be faced with the choice between a moderate liberal who will tilt the ideological balance on the Court left-of-center on many issues for many years to come versus a bomb throwing radical who will vote hard Left on the cases before the Court for the short-term. The Orrin Hatches of the Party will make a show of it but quickly wave the white flag, claiming for the good of the country they had no choice but to accept Obama's pseudo-moderate nominee as Scalia's permanent replacement.

  10. The Founding Fathers never imagined the country would get to the point where all three branches of government would make laws. Congress does its job of legislating every once in awhile; unfortunately it almost never does its job well. Then we have a president who makes laws by executive decree whenever he feels in the mood or when Congress doesn't give him what he demands. And then we have the SCOTUS where half its members have no respect for the Constitution as written and make things up as they go along to suit their modern lifestyle preferences. Without people like Scalia, this country is doomed to wander in the desert. America needs its Moses to lead us out of the wilderness.

  11. It is conceivable that by Jan 2017 their could be 2 (or more) vacancies on the Supreme Court. If the senate confirms anyone before then it would be comparable to FDR stacking the court.
    That cannot be allowed to happen.

  12. Show Obama the same courtesy he showed President Bush's judicial nominees when he was in the senate (supporting a filibuster of Alito and voted against Roberts. And then Roberts turned around and became Obama's bitch).

  13. I predict Obama will nominate the first Muslim Supreme Court Justice.
