Thanks for MHO. It was the "Hastert Rule": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hastert_rule
Thanks, Gag. xx
I hope you are right. In the last four years Dems have proven how totally batshit crazy they are.
@KrakenAttackin I hope I am wrong but I probably am not.
Well, you and I have very different visions for the USA.
@KrakenAttackin definitely. Still agree that they're batshit... but it's because I think they're too conservative and chicken shit. Perspective is everything 🤷🏼
Wow, you you want to burn the country down and create some kind of orwellian utopia... awesome.
@CupcakeIf that would be the plan the Democrats will have to wait 4+ years. There’s no way they’re going to win in Nov. Not for the presidency or anything else besides local positions. The Dems have managed to make themselves look so bad between their Woke ramblings, allowing riots to disrupt people’s lives, destroy property and injure people, and the whole COVID scam that people aren’t going to vote for these people in Nov. Moderates aren’t going to vote for incompetent Biden’s message nor align themselves with the Democrats ideology. Many are leaving the Democrat party or at least not voting the Democrat ticket in Nov because of these issues and many others showing the Democrats for the morally degenerate and delusional political party they are. Last election many moderates voted against Trump due to disliking him personally and seeing Hillary as the lesser of 2 evils. This election people will not forget the Marxist/communist/socialist attempt to at a revolution in the streets that involves the killing and injuring of many police officers as well as civilians and the smoke still billowing from several cities while Democrats who run these places license it all. They do so by having police stand down, not calling up the National Guard, or calling up inadequate numbers and having them stand down as well, and not accepting federal help. In Seattle a lot of people’s lives were disrupted as these Marxists took over sever city blocks to establish Chaz. Oregon has had riots for 3 months now. People are taking note. They don’t feel safe. Especially when a political party tells them they don’t need an AR-15, meanwhile they enable riotous mobs to roam the streets inflicting damage and injury at will. People are not going to forget these things and will positively vote for Trump.

A lifetime political appointment is pretty important. So is precedent that can last centuries. And yes, if Trump violates the precedent that was set in 2016 when Republicans blocked Obama from appointing a supreme court justice in an election year, then it would, in fact, be Trump's fault if there is fallout. Because the rules were already set and decided. Avoiding power grabs and corruption within politics is yet another extremely important thing that we need to focus on more than anything else. A relief package helps you for a year. A proper government helps you for centuries.
www.senate.gov/.../Judicial_Branch_vrd.htmPresident has the authority to do so. We don’t live in a monarchy. She can’t pass down the seat in her will because she doesn’t own the seat. If we don’t receive a relief package in time, then this will devastate our economy for decades. Every reputable economist in the word from the UK to the US says the same thing. The housing market is on the brinks of a crash. Look at the massive sell off in tech. Look at the unemployment. Look at the deficit. Look at how Powell pretty much put the feds hands in the air. I invest in assets and dedicate a good portion of my life analyzing economic trends. If you don’t think this stimulus is a necessity to keep our economic structure afloat and minimize it the way you are, then you’re digging your head in the sand or oblivious to what’s happening on a macro economic scale.
I don’t know anything about 2016, but I can assume that they didn’t throw threats the way the democrats are right now.
EVERY president, except Obama. Who McConnell stopped from having his nominee considered, not "because we have the power to stop it", which would have been honest, but "because the people should choose", 10 months before the election.Let the people choose, in the election that has already started, or don't complain if the Democrats use every tool available to them to stop this hypocrisy.
Not really. Even if Trump is reelected (likely) the issue is the senate. Democrats will have a new issue to go headhunting Republican Senators up for reelection, "if you don't vote for our liberal lunatic, orange man will get to pic a SCOTUS justice". We already have at least two asshole Republican Senators (Romney and Collins), who will not vote for a real conservative for the court. Republicans need to act quickly.
The GOPs supporters aren’t in the streets attempting a revolution for the last 3 months because they hate America and see it as morally unredeemable and racist and want this to be Europe jr instead are they? The GOP does not continually criticize America nor hate it, but defend it, nor seek to undermine its Constitution. The GOP is not removing and vandalizing pictures of George Washington nor destroying monuments to veterans and founding fathers. This is all Democrat supporters doing these things. Yet, somehow you think the GOP hates America. That’s laughable. The icing on the cake is you calling someone stupid while making the statements you made which are profoundly stupid. The Democrats and it’s supporters despise racist America, it’s Constitution, and most definitely it’s non Woke president. They are globalists not nationalists. They call people nativists and xenophobes who stand up for America and it’s people by declaring foreign nationals have no business taking up residence in the country illegally. They have attempted to impeach the president and unjustly slandered his last Supreme Court nomination. Anyone listening to Muller or Fords testimonies can obviously tell these things were done with little if any evidence. I’ve not seen obstructionism of this level yet. Democrat supporters don’t even respect the democratic process as they protested in mass the 2016 election results and lately have rioted non stop rather than respecting the justice systems ability to prosecute wrong doers. They have chosen to foolishly take justice into their own hands and destroyed and cause harm at will. Somehow you arrive at the conclusion that it’s the GOP that hates America. I don’t see any Democrats calling themselves patriots, but plenty of Republicans will gladly self apply that label. I’m not even sure I want to see your response as I strongly think it will include mental gymnastics to explain all this away.
They didn't. Opposition party controlled the senate and they had the votes to hold it off until after the election. Last time president's choice to the supreme court was approved by a majority opposition Senate, it was 1800's! So no, what happened in 2016 was pretty much as expected.
@scarlett774. Keep dreaming sweetie. You are going to get a young, female, very conservative, white or Latino justice rammed down your liberal throat.
Not very likely if human decency still exists
@scarlett774. You liberals can forget being treated with "decency", you lost that right when you started burning cities.
Ok? You conservatives lost the right of human decency the last decade
@scarlett774 I am surprised you didn't "report" all of the conservative comments.
That’s what you do not me
How does it help 1%ers?He’s done plenty to give people what they want. I don’t see how no new wars, 3 peace deals in the Middle East, and bringing back the troops is meant to benefit “cronies” over people.
Cause none of that actually happened
Not getting the US into any new wars didn’t happen?
Keep drinking the kool aid dude. HE HAS NOT MADE GOOD ON HIS PROMISES. I GUARAN FUCKING TEE IT
... so there *aren’t* any new wars then? HMMMM?He made good on promises and then some. I don’t think he ever promised peace deals in the Middle East, yet it’s happening.Oh it’s you who “guaran fucking tees” everything. Yeah, okay fuck off kid, keep making new accounts. We know you refuse to hear anything remotely reasonable.
That’s what I heard as well.
Not according to Mitch the bitch.
@Reign_Interrupted: Why not?
Because he blocked Obama from doing the exact thing. Due to it being 10 months before an election. Here we are. less than 2 months away and the rules suddenly don't apply.
@Reign_Interrupted: Then that makes him a hypocrite, but I still think Obama put a judge in before the election because the law allows him too.
@chapawapa beneficial for who?
Beneficial to whoever wins I guess. But the reason it needs to be done now is because of the possibility of the need for a scotus ruling on the election and going to 4-4 is just asking for civil war. They should slam the nominee though ASAP. Ideally it should be all done an dusted with time to spare before the election. Trying to deal with it after Election Day as the mail in votes get counted and scrapped over the next 2 months will just add to the chaos.
@AllThatSweetJazz Well said.
Agreed. He’s trying to put a woman on the court. Why would the Dems block a woman from one of the most powerful positions in government.
That's exactly what the previous administration did for 8 years. I'll bet you didn't have a problem with it then because it was our 💞First Black President.💞
Imagine buying into all the Russian propaganda given by a demonic worshipping lady and and her husband that flew to Epstein’s island 27 times and worked with Epstein for 15 years at SAT LOL 😂
@CriticalDiscourse If he were to burst into flames we will dig up another Senate Majority Leader, so rest easy.
