As every parent knows, if you don’t instantly penalize bad behavior, the child will continue the behavior. The same holds true for criminals. That’s why, in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis held a press conference on Monday announcing that he’s proposing a new law that will impose instant, mandatory, and severe penalties for the destructive and dangerous behaviors we’ve seen across America as BLM and Antifa have taken to the streets. His goal is to prevent Florida communities from suffering as Minneapolis and Kenosha have. DeSantis was backed by a phalanx of sheriffs and police officers as he told a small number of socially-distanced journalists about the proposed law:

President Donald Trump announced he would nominate a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday or Saturday, but some on the Left have already taken aim at one of the frontrunners, 7th Circuit Appeals Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett. On Sunday, The Washington Post‘s book critic Ron Charles suggested Barrett’s religious faith makes her a dangerous radical. “Amy Coney Barrett, the judge at the top of Trump’s list to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has said we should always remember that a ‘legal career is but a means to an end … and that end is building the Kingdom of God,’” Charles tweeted.

nominee by Friday or Saturday 12 replies
President Trump said Monday he would probably announce his nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court by Friday or Saturday. “I think it’ll be on Friday or Saturday,” Trump said during an interview on “Fox & Friends,” adding that he wants to show respect for Ginsburg, who died last Friday. “We will have probably services on Thursday or Friday, as I understand it. … We should wait until the services are over, for Justice Ginsburg, and so we’re looking probably at Friday, or maybe Saturday,” he continued. Trump also said he is making up his mind among up to five nominees, when asked who was on his short list.
betrays tremendous historical ignorance 14 replies
It’s 2020, so naturally a nation already beset by bitter political divisions now faces yet another Supreme Court confirmation fight, thanks to the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg at 87. Ginsburg had a landmark legal career even before moving to the Supreme Court, where she served 27 years until her death Friday: She was a feminist hero who greatly advanced legal recognition of women’s rights. Now the prospect that her replacement will be chosen by a Republican president and Senate has the left even more exercised than the right was when President Barack Obama nominated a moderate liberal, Judge Merrick Garland, to fill the seat of conservative great Antonin Scalia.
Bader Ginsburg’s seat 7 replies
The mouth-frothing rage of Democrats over the possible filling of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court before Inauguration Day is shocking, but predictable, after the “Summer of Love” we’ve endured. Now they’re threatening to “burn it all down” if Republicans fill the vacancy soon. Hysterical RBG cultists holding vigil in Washington on Saturday night warned of a “civil war.” Threats to kill Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flooded Twitter, and dozens of police had to guard his Kentucky home as protesters descended on it. It wasn’t just random psychopaths on social media threatening to “storm the White House and burn it to the f–king ground.” High-profile liberals issued dire threats on Twitter.
Graham’ with pots, strobe lights 14 replies
A crowd of activists staged a theatrical “wake up Lindsey Graham” protest outside the South Carolina GOP senator’s home Monday — but his office tells The Post he wasn’t home. The group smashed cymbals, banged pots and flashed strobe lights at 6 a.m. as police watched them on the usually quiet Capitol Hill block. “Anyone who is seeing this can do the same thing to your representative, can do the same thing learning about how to hold them accountable,” an activist bellowed into a megaphone. “Make sure they know if they do some evil f–king sh–, they know there will be consequences for it.” After about an hour, the activists were threatened with arrest
wish about Supreme Court appointment 15 replies
President Trump pushed back when asked if he was going against Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish by appointing someone before the Nov. election, questioning if she even personally made the alleged remarks. Speaking to Fox News’ Monday morning, the commander-in-chief made the claim while discussing why he was moving forward with a nominee to replace the liberal icon, who passed away Friday night at the age of 87. “Well, I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi?” the president asked the hosts, adding, “I would be more inclined to the second.”
Once it was the “big lie.” Now it is many little lies — riots are peaceful; he is she is they; Biden is not doddering; Trump will steal 2020. Told often enough and given enough time, little lies become truth. Today we live in the “age of lies” told to steal an election in November and control a populace who refuses to do as they are told. All Americans should stop at least once before Election Day and take a hard look at the Democrat candidate, “King of Aphasia” Joe Biden. When they do, they will understand what the left is planning.

SCOTUS Vacancy Fight 10 replies
Of course, the squish squad was going to announce its intentions at the outset of this fight. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away. There’s a vacancy. President Trump wants that vacancy filled. He’s reportedly narrowed the list of candidates. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said a vote will happen. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the Senate Judiciary Committee will have hearings. It’s happening folks. Yet, McConnell has to run a tight ship. Like the Kavanaugh fight, which was one of the nastiest Supreme Court nominations in recent memory, the Senate GOP has to hold the line. It’ll be tight,
Now that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed, the focus has shifted to filling her seat on the Supreme Court. Whether or not Republicans should move forward with this play – while they have both the Senate and the White House – is being called into question, mostly from the mainstream media and the left. Naturally, they want the GOP to hold off and have the next president make the decision. Obviously, they’re hoping Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be the two to appoint RBG’s replacement. It’s interesting, however, to go back and look at the lefty takes on this,
supports Trump filling SCOTUS vacancy 29 replies
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham reversed earlier statements on Saturday and said he will support “any effort” by President Trump to seat another Supreme Court justice. The support came as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told his GOP caucus to “keep your powder dry” in regard to filling the seat left vacant by Justice Ruth Bader GInsburg’s death on Friday. Separately, Maine Sen. Susan Collins said, “The decision should be made by the president who is elected on November 3rd.” In a series of tweets, Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said, “The two biggest changes regarding the Senate and judicial confirmations
