Can Trump get another justice on the SCOTUS bench before the 2020 election?

I was wrong


Associate Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer

Beginning in 2019 when I believed Ruth Bader Ginsberg was already dead, I said it wouldn’t be announced until 2020.

Was she already dead in 2019?

Irrelevant to how I was wrong.

I believed an urban legend that posits “Presidents cannot confirm a SCOTUS appointment in an election year”

More than 30 (Lower) Federal Judiciary positions have already been confirmed in 2020, so why couldn’t the President confirm a new SCOTUS appointment?

Systemic Racism in America’s Law Enforcement?

So, I’m reading this article, and notice the following statement:

“Where there’s a lot of civilians that own guns, fatal police shootings happen more often,” Hemenway said”

Isn’t that like saying “Where there’s a lot of civilians that have lethal drugs, fatal drug overdoses happen more often”?

One objection I offer immediately to this proposed argument is that the word “civilians” needs to be replaced with “criminals”.

Has the “Left” changed?

If you’re a Leftist, this will probably trigger you, but I don’t care. Many certain conversations need to be taking place but are all-too-often hushed, muffled, and violently forced into politically correct safe-spaces, so those on the Left never really have to confront, or face, their realities.

This fact alone helps explain why these sociological “volcanoes” fluctuate through phases of dormancy, activity, occasional eruptions, catastrophic explosions, and man’s responses: most of which are seldom true solutions, and all-too-often, are mere cosmetic patches, only meant to appear as having been addressed.

American Revolution 2.0

For many decades, I’ve said America’s greatness strength, is also its greatest weakness: it’s that we’ll take abuse, and take it, and take it, and take it.

As much as America is a mirage of a replica of the old Roman Empire, what will emerge once the dust settles from our next revolution, will reach towards that again.

I do not believe the Leftists win this one. We’re a nation of over 200 million legal guns; and there are twice that many on the street.
