The instant Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing was announced, the battle lines were drawn. Or, more accurately, one side girded for battle, while Republicans clucked with confusion about what to do next. Which should be no surprise. If Republicans are good at anything, it’s finding “principled” reasons to betray their constituents and contradict their much vaunted philosophy. President Trump, naturally, has sounded strong, as, to his credit, has Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). But the majority leader has to manage a fractious caucus and a thin margin. Many of his members either will be looking for excuses not to vote, or for a reason to vote no, or (worse) will be persuadable

Breaking News: CNN has reported in the last 30 minutes that Ricin was discovered in a package sent to the White House, addressed to President Trump. CNN broke into their coverage of the death of Justice Ginsburg to deliver the report: ( Tweet) (Video) The package was found at an off-site mail facility that handles all mail deliveries for the White House. The discovery of the ricin was apparently made days ago, but law enforcement officials have spent the last few days conducting tests on the substance to confirm it was indeed ricin. As more information becomes available, we will report it here at RedState.

Former President Barack Obama was one of the notable figures who offered tributes of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and condolences to her family after her passing Friday. In a piece posted on his Medium account, he recounted the discrimination she’d faced as a woman in the workplace and how she smacked down the institutions that treated her as inferior because of her gender: (Snip)No timelines anywhere to be found, because they don’t exist. And, there is no requirement to fulfill the politically-based last wishes of those who’ve been appointed to the bench. Sorry, Barack and Ruth, that’s not how it works.

Turns out that like Seattle, there’s been a continuing smaller barricaded ‘autonomous zone’ in Minneapolis that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention. But of course it’s not good for the folks in Minneapolis and particular the businesses in the area being occupied. The owner of an auto repair said he was violently attacked while in his office by someone who came from this nearby zone which they are calling “the free State of George Floyd.”From Fox News: “I was in my office and I heard a noise. I was talking to the guy and I woke up after that in the hospital,” he said. “He broke my computer and took stuff out of

Breaking Down Mitch McConnell’s Majority —
Where Will His 50 Votes Come From? 18 replies

There are 53 GOP Senators. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will need 50 votes to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice, with Vice President Mike Pence standing by to break any tie. One GOP Senator, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska has already signaled today that she will not vote to confirm any new Supreme Court Justice until after Inauguration Day in January. That means Cocaine Mitch can only endure two more defections and still be able to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice. In my view, the following Senators are solid votes to confirm pretty much any nominee sent to the Senate by Pres. Trump in the next 45 days: John

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made valid arguments Saturday in convincing President Donald Trump to nominate a successor to the U.S. Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed 42 days after she was nominated by President Bill Clinton. @RealDonaldTrump‘s nominee should get the same speedy consideration by the Senate,” Fitton wrote in one tweet.“COUP KARMA: If the Left can impeach and try to remove a president during an election year, a Supreme Court justice can certainly be appointed during an election year,” he added in a second post,

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday at the age of 87. (Snip)After Donald Trump’s election in 2016, many on the Left expressed dismay that she chose to stay on the court rather than resign and let President Obama nominate her replacement. (Snip)Given that she herself put the country in this difficult position, we should not allow our thinking to be clouded by any false sentimentality about her death.(Snip) Democrats may assume that Ginsburg’s dying wish is a given. And they will pretend that it is some time-honored precedent. With the election only six weeks away, they assume there just won’t be enough time to act.

We stand at the crossroads. Over the next several years, the noble sentiments and ideas that gave birth to the United States will either be repudiated or reaffirmed. The fateful choice before us will result either in the death of a grand hope or a recommitment to an extraordinary political experiment whose full flowering we have yet to realize. The choice will involve either contempt and despair or gratitude and the self-respect worthy of a free people who know long labors lie before them and who proceed with hope toward a dignified future. In the name of justice and equality, those animated by contempt and despair seek to destroy long-standing but fragile

The news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing has driven much of the left bonkers. They know that President Trump may nominate a constitutionalist replacement and rather than a robust opposition, are vowing death and destruction in response: Here’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and note the innuendo in her tone: “If Mitch McConnell isn’t going to honor RBG’s final wish, we will. We will. And we have to.” Thank you, ⁦@AOC⁩. For your voice. For your fight. Tonight. And always. pic.twitter.com/2P5ttuvJsx (Snip) Doesn’t sound like a democratic response she has in mind.

Attorney General William Barr was direct in explaining his reason for returning to the Justice Department after a 27-year absence, having last served as Attorney General for Pres. George H.W. Bush in 1992. He was not going to stand by and watch what had happened to the Trump Administration at the hands of the federal bureaucracy if he had the ability to re-enter government and make needed changes(Snip)
Between 2016 and 2018, he watched from his vantage point as a private citizen what he recognized as a deliberate and concerted effort by actors inside and outside the government to “overthrow” a duly-elected President, with the mainstream media playing cheerleader every

‘I didn’t get invited by Hollywood to come to this industry,” actor Jim Caviezel says. It was God — not the executives, the talent agents, nor the filmmakers — that gave him his acting talent. “God believed in me, that He wanted me to be an actor. I felt it in my heart very deeply.” A man of deep faith and conviction, Caviezel broke into Hollywood with an exceptional role in Terrence Malick’s 1998 war film The Thin Red Line. In 2004, he played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s international blockbuster The Passion of the Christ. Caviezel’s latest movie Infidel(Snip) tells the story of an American journalist who is imprisoned

Today I woke up feeling more enthusiastic than I usually do; I have rumba dancing in my veins and I feel myself moving diferently. I had a planter’s punch for breakfast before a Bloody Mary. I have come to learn that I am not white! That is at least what The New York Times is suggesting, regarding the natives of Spain and Portugal as nonwhite. Although I have no idea what color they are referring to, I know that there are great genetic differences between the northern barbarian consumers of butter and the Mediterranean hedonists who believe in olive oil (Snip) the NYT has no idea how to catalog us,
