Passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Permanently Resets 2020 Election, by John Nolte.
Win or lose in November, President Trump will be president plenty long enough to replace Ginsburg.
Win or lose the Senate in November, Republicans will hold the Senate plenty long enough to replace Ginsburg. …
Regardless of the outcome, what we have on our hands right now is a total 2020 game changer and one that is almost certainly going to benefit Trump. …
The national media and Biden had planned to make 2020 a referendum on Trump’s handling of the coronavirus epidemic. Come hell or high water, they were not going to allow the subject to be changed from that. And it was a good plan. Kept Biden on offense, kept Trump on defense, and that’s how you win presidential elections in this country.
Well, the unfortunate passing of Ginsburg throws all that right over the side.
Whether, in the end, McConnell can or cannot cobble the votes together doesn’t matter. The news cycle is about to be swamped by this confirmation battle, which puts Trump on offense and Biden on defense. …
Finally, there’s the coming left-wing violence and left-wing ugliness. … The riots are about to return big-time and so is the off-putting ugliness we saw during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And this is almost certainly what worries Democrats and the national media most…
The horrors America witnessed from the left during the Kavanaugh confirmation almost certainly helped the GOP expand its Senate majority during the 2018 midterms. Turnout exploded to 50-year highs, and Republicans benefited from that turnout. The GOP might have lost the House of Representatives, but they won the equivalent of the Electoral College; they won the states they needed to win, including gubernatorial races in Georgia and Florida that everyone expected to go the other way.
I’m not making any predictions as to Trump’s reelection, and I’m certainly not dancing on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s grave. I didn’t agree with her, but she had my respect.
All I’m saying is that the 2020 landscape has been permanently altered. This is a total reset of everything, and the glide path the corrupt media thought they placed Biden on just went up in smoke.
The Democrats are making all sorts of vague threats, as they rage and stomp.
“Democrats and Joe Biden have made clear they intend to challenge this election. They intend to fight the legitimacy of the election. As you know Hillary Clinton has told Joe Biden ‘under no circumstances should you concede, you should challenge this election.’ and we cannot have election day come and go with a 4-4 court.”
Cruz continued, “A 4-4 court that is equally divided cannot decide anything. And I think we risk a constitutional crisis if we do not have a nine-justice Supreme Court, particularly when there is such a risk of … a contested election.”
For the last 50 years the left has used the Supreme Court to implement changes it couldn’t pass by normal legislative means, because it didn’t have enough popular support. But judicial activism is not the Court’s proper role — it’s there to interpret the letter of the law and only the letter of the law.
Now that control of their corrupted institution is being taken away from them, the left are threatening to upend the system and become even more violent. And become even less popular. “Break though or bust” is the leftist way.
Ginsburg could have retired four years ago and allow Obama to appoint a progressive. Ginsburg was also the most left person on the Court.
