      Chuck Shumer, and many Democrats, are going full fear-mongering over Trump's pick.

        yeah well they probably planned that minutes after Kennedy's retirement announcement. It wouldn't have mattered who was picked, it's all about who picked him....

          Scary this tool bag went to law school and want to sue SCOTUS??
          On Wednesday, Jimmy Vielkind, Albany bureau chief for POLITICO, reported that New York governor Andrew Cuomo, who is reputedly an attorney, had a novel idea if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

            Thing is, nobody wants to overturn Roe. But the Democrats are using that made-up scenario as a fear-mongering tool to keep their base on edge.

            Their base believes the Reps are all out for removing it and making it so women are treated like cattle. Therefore the are being excessively vocal about it and boosting their "resist" game.

            But since nobody wants to overturn Roe, Roe will, therefore not be overturn. And Roe not being overturned will be used by the Dems as proof that their "resit" movement managed to pressure the Supreme Court, intimidate the new Justice and thwart Trump's machiavellian plans.


            But yeah, good luck to Cuomo suing SCOTUS... A luminary mind that mind.

                  So apparently one prominent liberal group accidentally sent out their pre-prepared email slamming Trump's nomination of "XXX". Yes, "XXX". They were ready for anyone at all. Bunch of dropkicks.

                  Well I too slam President Trump's nomination of Vin Diesel for the Supreme Court. Although his experience in handing out justice in fine films such as "The Last Witch Hunter" and "The Fast and the Furious" is to be applauded, his lack of an Oscar clearly shows he's not fit for the highest bench.

                            Initial Views on Kavanaugh Confirmation Divided

                            WASHINGTON, D.C. -- By 41% to 37%, Americans want the Senate to vote for, rather than against, the confirmation of federal judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This four-percentage-point margin is slimmer than any Gallup has measured in its initial read on 10 prior nominees since 1987. On average, the margin in favor of confirming the nominee in these polls has been 23 points, 49% to 26%.
                            Opinions about Kavanaugh's confirmation are strongly related to partisanship -- 76% of Republicans favor him serving on the Supreme Court, while 67% of Democrats are opposed. Just 14% of Democrats want Kavanaugh confirmed.
                            Kavanaugh begins his quest for the Supreme Court with a higher level of opposition than for any nominee Gallup has measured since 1987, and barely more support than opposition overall. To a large degree, these attitudes reflect the nation's increasing political polarization, perhaps more than anything about Kavanaugh himself. Democrats' sizable opposition to Kavanaugh may also reflect concern that his nomination will push the court in a more conservative direction.

                            With Supreme Court confirmations now requiring a simple majority of Senate votes, and Republicans holding a majority in that chamber, Kavanaugh is likely to be confirmed. However, he has little cushion, with Republicans holding a two-seat advantage. It is possible that if public support for his nomination drops, it could tip moderate Republican senators against his confirmation; or if support for his nomination increases, it could convince moderate Democratic senators to back it.
                            https://news.gallup.com/poll/237251/...n-divided.aspx

                            Also keep in mind that more than a few democratic senators are up for re-election in Trump and Republican country.

                            So they either confirm or loose their seats in the midterms.

                              So apparently the new idea running around in left-wing circles is that if Trump gets to appoint this Supreme Court judge (and quite possibly one other as several current members like RGB are getting on in years) and thus tilt the court conservatively, the next time the Democrats control the White House and Senate they will try to expand the court to 11 (or even 13) members and thus tilt it the other way.

                              Similar in precept to the idea FDR had when he got pissy about the Supremes invalidating the worst of his New Deal laws.

                              This of course is a great idea and cannot possibly go wrong in any way shape or form.
