Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined forces in Brooklyn on Sunday to issue a “fervent plea” that Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court remain vacant until after the November presidential election.Speaking from the late justice’s alma matter, James Madison High School in Midwood, Ocasio-Cortez said Dems need to use “every tool at our disposal” to block a Senate confirmation hearing for any potential replacement nominated by President Trump.“We need to make sure we mobilize on an unprecedented scale to ensure this vacancy is reserved for the next president,” she said.

Here is the latest from Joe Biden: he misread his teleprompter, and pronounced that by the time his speech was over, 200 million Americans–two-thirds of our population!–will have died from COVID-19, and it is all President Trump’s fault: If you need more proof that Joe Biden is a teleprompter puppet, here it is. “It’s estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk.” He just said 2/3 of the US will die by the time he’s done talking & blamed Trump. pic.twitter.com/t1sl3vSF58 — Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) September 20, 2020

Leo Guinan (“he/him”) has bravely and smugly gone public with his decision to blackmail his father for being a Trump supporter. Unless daddy changes his ways, he’ll never see his grandchildren again. Guinan oozes self-righteous hatred. The only good thing about his post is that people were appalled and contemptuous. (snip) This wonderful human being wrote a now-viral post entitled, “Today I Gave My Dad A Choice: Trump or His Grandkids and His Son.” He explains that he was traumatized by finding a Trump sign in his father’s yard.

A large sculpture of a donkey that was designed to be a Democratic symbol was destroyed in a Maine town overnight Saturday after someone set the structure ablaze. Rep. Seth Berry described the incident in Bowdoinham as “an act of arson and of political terrorism” after the traveling donkey, which was named Mr. H, was set on fire at around 2 a.m. on the property of Theresa Turgeon, a former select board member. “Mr. H took two full years to build,” Berry, who serves under the Democratic Party, wrote on Facebook. “He was larger than life, perhaps 7 feet tall

Another hinted at violently attacking the police by chanting, “Black lives matter! Blue lives splatter!”(Snip for tweet) The Portland Police Bureau reported that a march of roughly 200 people began around 9 p.m. on Saturday evening.

Outside of the friendly confines of Utah, Mitt Romney is not a very popular figure in the Republican Party just at the moment. His vote to convict President Donald Trump on one charge during the impeachment debacle cemented a severe distaste that most conservatives developed as a result of his Never Trump antics. Romney suffered those slings and arrows without much complaint, stating the reason he received so much ire is his principled conservatism. As Trump moves to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Romney’s principles should make him a yes.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi left some viewers scratching their heads after what seemed like a brief communication issue during a Sunday morning news show. During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked whether she and House Democrats would move to impeach President Trump in an effort to stop his U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench — following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country,” Pelosi said.

The insufferable Chris Wallace of Fox News kept referring to the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as “tragic” on yesterday’s edition of Fox News Sunday. While I am full of sympathy for her family, loved ones, and friends who all have lost someone they deeply mourn, I cannot see how her death is “tragic” — unless one is a partisan Democrat fearing loss of control of the Supreme Court.

So, how was your weekend? The news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing on Friday certainly ratcheted up the 2020 crazy by several orders of magnitude, didn’t it? I was heading out to meet some friends when I saw the news on Twitter and my first thought was, “This might be the last time I can get out and have fun before ‘peaceful protests’ begin again.” The lefties wasted little time in confirming my suspicion that RBG’s death was going to do the seemingly impossible: make them even more unhinged.
