Once again the media is being completely onesided.....they play all of the Republican comments from the Garland delay but none of the Democrat comments during that episode. Of course only the Republicans will be painted as hypocrites by the media and none of the Democrats comments will be on display.

I don’t care what people think. There is no risk of losing the election by filling the spot. The country is at risk in more ways than one.

The republicans need to stop concerning themselves with hurting the democrats feelings and egos. The democrats certainly are not concerned about what republicans think.

Third - What have we come to when we all already know Dems will fight,sue etc the election results? Think about how stupid that is for a minute. Don't try to fix whatever issue there is. Instead leave it grey so you can fight when you don't win.

4th - All this talk about Senate seats scared of not getting re-elected. They need to know if they don't push for this they will NOT be re-elected. It works both ways.
I agree with all of this. Rat, you be right this time.

The risk of going into the election with only 8 justices on the Supreme Court is too great. Trump could win every state, and the Dems are going to contest the results in court. The people who won't vote for Trump or an incumbent Republican Senator because they filled a vacant seat on the SC before an election are the same people who aren't going to vote for Trump or an incumbent Republican Senator anyway. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth on the left, but who cares? Trump needs to make the nomination first thing Monday morning, and then the Senate Republicans need to get the nominee confirmed ASAP. The election is VERY important. But the results of that can be reversed in 2 and 4 years. The Supreme Court seat is a much longer term and more important deal, and it also has huge implications on this year's presidential election.

Fill the seat.

First off, in 2016 if the Dems would have had the Senate you can be sure they would have moved forward with a nomination and would have been laughing about it all the way. I say he should nominate Amy Barrett, who I have heard has high regards from both sides of the isle. Of course, the same thing was said about Kavenaugh and look what the put him thru. I say nominate Barret, go thru the process, and let the Dems show how morally bankrupt they are when the go after her and try to ruin her life. If is so important now that Trump hammer Biden thru the media to release his list of Supreme Court nominees. If the argument by the left is going to be let the people help decide this by who they vote for President then Biden needs to let everyone know who his list would include so the electorate will really know what is at stake.

Are you posting this as fact or satire? RBG was nominated and confirmed in 1993, over 3 years prior to the 1996 election. How do you not know that?

History Is on the Side of Republicans Filling a Supreme Court Vacancy in 2020

Choosing not to fill a vacancy would be a historically unprecedented act of unilateral disarmament.

Either way.... It is a tough one. But, I lean towards appointing now. Of course the media and democrats will use it as a weapon against Trump. Whatís new?

Our side said this last time and their side said that last time. Each side is saying the opposite this time - are you surprised ? what else is new? Amusing how everyone on both sides scrambles to come up with a “yeah, but this time its different!” argument. Truth is, this part of politics is a zero sum game. High-minded ethics go out the window and you marshal all your power and do/say whatever you have to do to crush your opponents. It was ever thus, and I’m fine with that. As a wise man once said, Politics ain’t beanbag...

Yep, campaign adds will be used to set the records straight. Democrats were screaming to push their appointments through before 2016 elections.

I must have missed something. I cant recall there being any conversation regarding this.

In my opinion there isnt anyone I would rather have on the SCOTUS than an Originalist. No matter which woman Trump picks, it is going to be interesting to watch in what manner the Dems attack her.

A perfect opportunity for the Democrats to indulge their anti-catholic bigotry.

Joe Biden is a Roman Catholic.

This is shaping up to be a very entertaining October.

Originalism. 100%

Bayou boy, Catholics are some of the most fervent opponents to abortion. You know that. ACB is also, by all accounts Iíve been able to find, a STAUNCH constitutionalist.

I know that. I was reared in the Catholic church. I also know there are multiple people on here not that long ago trashing the Catholic religion. Just wondering how they feel now that the top candidate is Catholic.

Her job would be to uphold the constitution for ALL RELIGIONS.....

Fill the seat Trump....like someone said earlier this is an unprecedented opportunity....you cannot trust Roberts.....this will give you 6-3....at worst 5-4.....

When trump wins I hope Breyer retires...he is 82... and Thomas is 72 Alito 70....

Fill that court with 40 somethings....that way for the next 30 years we can at least keep this country going straight

Nominate and confirm now! The election isnt a factor with this development. An unprecedented opportunity awaits.

Agreed! All precedent to move forward and appoint NOW. Last time this wasn't done was the 1880s, every President same party as the Senate did this in the last year of office, has happened MULTIPLE times. No real argument not too other than possibly pull every anti-abortionist in the nation to the poll, either way ,move forward MAGA !!!!! Rest assured the Lords plan while not always obvious will prevail.

This will likely be my only post ever in this forum.
Unless you believe neither party will ever control all 3 branches ever again, confirming a new justice before the election, or in the lame duck *if* the senate majority or white house changes hands is extremely short sighted on several levels.
It seems like a lot of people think the "lifetime appointment" of justices is not just yet another aspect of our governmental system that relies on norms to stay in place. Justices are still accountable to the majority will of both branches of Congress they can be impeached. Additionally it really doesn’t matter how many justices have been appointed, since Congress also gets to set the number that make up the supreme court, the court can be packed. The only thing that stops these things from happening is the respect of the norms, concerns of institutional legitimacy, and that knowledge that at some point the other party may be in power in these norms and institutions will protect us. Once it has been shown that now the normal mode of operation is to grab as much power as possible and then entrench it as permanently as you can, there’s no reason to do anything other than as soon as you have control of all three branches immediately make systemic changes to lock that control in. If the Republicans go forward in this fashion, as soon as the Democrats control all three branches, which could be as soon as Jan 2021, they would be foolish to not do three things immediately
1) revoke the filibuster
2) pack the court to say 15 justices or if it’s easier simply impeach the last two
3) make DC in Puerto Rico states, which is a bit more of a lift but very doable

All of which is legal if you have the votes. The only thing that stops this from occurring is a sense of political backlash from such a naked power grab, which will be much less of a issue if a justice has been appointed in lame duck or before the election.
Additionally, if you actually value the standing of the United States and the stability of our institutions this may be the straw that breaks breaks the camels back in the long term. None of this will stop here, it will accelerate. The risk is far too high to go down this path for something that isn’t actually permanent anyway.
If the White House and the Senate majority stays after the election then they can do what they want, confirm Amy Barret, and it’ll all be within reasonable bounds.

It's sorta delusional to think the dems are going to play nice in the future if we were to wait till after the election...we ALL KNOW what hand the dems would be playing right now if they had the senate & the witch had won in 16.

I think everything you state is already in their playbook & it's WAY past time to be the only side that plays fair...they have been lying & cheating on this admin the day he took office. It's time to take the gloves off, put on the brass knuckles & do everything humanly possible to save what's left of the republic.

Respect of norms with the democrats was tossed out years ago...there is no honor left when it comes to the power grab.

Exactly, well said. These radical communists will stop at nothing to regain power so they can further destroy our country. There is a huge list I thing should be charged with TREASON. It's time to stand our ground & push back on these freaks.
