What was it that Ginsburg said?

by: Brent Smith

Let’s play a “did she say it” game. Ready?

Number one:

“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being the president in his last year,” Ginsburg said in a 2016 New York Times interview in which she called for Merrick Garland to receive a confirmation vote in the Senate.

She then added as to whether the Senate should take up a vote on Garland, Ginsburg said at the time, “That’s their job.”

And now number two:

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg told Clara Spera in the days before her death, NPR reported.

“Is this a trick question,” most would say. I mean, it says right there that Ginsburg said them both.” read more

Democrats to Republicans – What’s Your Hurry?

Here in what is rapidly becoming the socialist State of New Hampshire, our two radical leftist Senators are complaining about the confirmation process of president elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees.

We hear the typical rhetoric about the extreme nature of Trump’s selections – the racist, the climate change deniers, the Putin sycophants. Naturally these are the claimed arguments against the likes of many, but the two senators are also whining about the speed at which these confirmations are happening.

NH1.com reported  that, “on the eve of a confirmation hearing frenzy in the nation’s capital, New Hampshire’s senior U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen warned that ‘the Republican leadership is talking about asking us to act on nominees who have not been through the vetting process.’”

“And in a joint-interview with NH1 News, the Granite State’s newest senator and fellow Democrat [hack] Maggie Hassan said that ‘we don’t have basic information’ on President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees, adding that it ‘is absolutely essential that we have time to thoroughly vet these nominees.’”

Really – you don’t have time to thoroughly vet even the first two nominees, Senator Jeff Sessions and Marine General John F. Kelly. read more

The Left Accuses Republicans of trying to Rig the Court

I’ve stated before that if we wish to witness where the left really wants to take us – don’t read the Washington Post, the New York Times or even watch CNN. No – to get the true pulse of the left, we must look at off-the-wall leftist sites like ThinkProgress.

ThinkProgress makes no effort to soft sell its Marxist ideology – no veiled attempt at fairness. Every article written and all commentary is unvarnished progressivism. These are the views of all leftist statists, if they dared to be honest. But they cannot, for if they were to be, they would never win another election.

A couple of days ago, Ian Millhiser, the “Justice Editor” at ThinkProgress, penned a piece entitled, “We may be living in the final days of the Supreme Court of the United States – Constitution, meet crisis.”

Without even reading, we should be able to surmise that Mr. Millhiser is going to whine about the lack of a ninth supreme Court justice – that it is a crisis – that it’s just not fair, and that the republican Senate is shirking its Constitutionally mandated responsibility. read more
