Dems lose again on Ginsburg



President Donald John Trump will nominate Justice PTBNL on Friday. The Senate will confirm her by Election Day. And Democrats will have to explain to their supporters why they failed again.

The Party Of Wile E. Coyote's losing streak makes the 2016-2017 Cleveland Browns look good. I mean at least the Browns won one game: The Christmas Miracle.

Democrats have lost every time since Hillary's historic electoral collapse on November 8, 2016.

Now they have thrown in the towel on packing the court in retaliation because the polls showed most Americans do not want that. We set it at 9 justices 151 years ago. Why change?

The Hill reported, "Senate Democrats are tamping down talk of expanding the Supreme Court if Republicans fill the seat held by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Progressive activists and some lawmakers have raised the idea since Ginsburg’s death was announced on Friday night, arguing the party needs to be ready to take bold steps if they have the Senate majority and the White House next year while facing a 6-3 conservative court."

Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the judiciary committee, said of adding seats, "Well, I don’t believe in doing that."

Ginsburg too said 9 was a good number.

But Jerold Nadler said if Justice PTBNL is confirmed, "then the incoming Senate should immediately move to expand the Supreme Court."

Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy said, "If that’s what Congressman Nadler is interested in, he should run for the Senate and make the motion. I’m not going to tell the House what they should do with their rules. I’m sure he’s got his hands full trying to get things done over there."

So, packing the court is a LOSER.

Hopes of flipping 4 Republican senators to block confirmation died quickly. Lisa Murkowski told Alaska Public Media, "I know everybody wants to ask the question, ‘will you confirm the nominee?’ We don’t have a nominee yet. You and I don’t know who that is. And so I can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is."

That retracts her statement three days ago, "For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election. Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed.

"I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Scalia. We are now even closer to the 2020 election – less than two months out – and I believe the same standard must apply,"

Her fellow RINO, Mitt Romney also said he will vote on a nominee before the election.

Only Susan Collins is unwilling to vote on the nomination before the election.

The American press wants to keep the story alive because it beats covering the real news: peace in the Middle East, a severe drop in the covid 19 threat, and an economy that is roaring back.

But Australia's ABC reported, "Democrats probably won't be able to stop Donald Trump and the Senate replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court."

And the Blaze reported that Joy Behar of The View is despondent over the outcome.

She said, "You know, I was thinking about the Supreme Court, because we've lost that battle. "I don't want to talk about the Republicans anymore. We've lost the battle. That doesn't mean we lost the Senate. There are states up for grabs — Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas and Arizona, too."

In 2018, 4 Democrat senators who voted against the nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh lost re-election -- the most incumbent opposition senators to lose in a president's first mid-term election in 84 years.

Democrat incumbents are in close races in Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.

Just saying.

How will this play out on November 3rd? People usually go with winners, not losers.

  1. Keeping my powder dry. Supposedly there will be three days of hearings. A LOT of shite can be slung in three days.

  2. How will this play out on November 3rd? It depends on who is counting the votes. Otherwise, it's Trump by a landslide. Wile E. Coyote? I see the Democrats as Elmer Fudd, frustrated and humiliated by the cwazy wabbit.

  4. Nadler is an expert at packing it in and packing it on.

    1. My brother-in-law can give you a play-by-play repeat of The Drive. He is a Broncos fan. I remember where I was when that happened. But that was then, and this is now, and we need to move on, for healing, and for the children, and for the prevention of run-on sentences.

    2. I predicted Red Right 88 would fail. I predicted they gave Elway too much time left in the game on The Drive. And I predicted both extra inning losses in Game 7 of the World Series for the Indians (1997 and 2016). The only time I had a good vibe was game 7 in 2016 when the Cavs were down only by 7 at halftime.

      But you have to be like Bills fans who say, hey, we went to 4 straight Super Bowls. No one else has.

      That they lost them does not matter.

      Oh, and I sat through that 34-0 loss at Municipal Stadium to the Colts in the 1968 NFL championship game.

    3. Oh, I left off The Fumble. That too was expected. Denver's D was just too good

  6. I love the smell of schaudenfreude in the afternoon.

    That said, I wouldn't mind seeing 4 or 5 strong, young (relatively) Conservatives added to the Court.

    Want term limits for the Federal bench? that's the way to get it.

  7. "Democrats will have to explain to their supporters why they failed again." Only the few that might hold them accountable. Certainly not the LSM.

    Murkowski is procedurally and intellectually challenged.

    Is it my imagination or has Dianne Feinstein been hiding out since her Kavanaugh disgrace?!

    "Joy Behar…is despondent." Best news of the day!

    1. I've known 3 or 4 women named "Joy" in my lifetime, and all of them have been miserable sad sacks, most of them hypochondriacs too. I wouldn't saddle anyone with that name, it seems to be a jinx!

      As for Feinstein, my guess is she's keeping a low profile & hoping that her involvement with the Red Chinese, who made her & her husband very rich, will stay hidden. I hope it doesn't, I'd love to see that old bag meet justice!

  8. The disloyal opposition will continue to double down. They know they only have to win once. They're flooding the zone with false narratives and are planning on sabotaging the election. When Trump wins on election day, they plan to claim all the votes haven't been counted.

  9. Because they're LOSERS?

    The Dems will do what they always do; first they blame the unwashed both GOP and their own, then they will blame everyone else in general, then they will blame their spokes people, then they will blame HOW their ideas were seen by people, then they will blame the media, then they will discuss how to better present their ideas, then they will send out new spokes people (or old ones with new words).

    They NEVER change the idea itself. They change the words, they change how they speak about it, they tell the media they're doing it wrong but they never ever change their ideas.

    If you notice they cruise along and about every decade or so they manage to fool enough fools to gain a powerful position. They then FAIL at that position and do not accomplish anything they said they would. Then they lose that position and do the above dance. Then another decade goes by . . .

  10. Either we get this nominee into the USSC by October 13th, 2020, or there will be, I assure you, hell to pay.
