Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ‘RBG’ died Friday at the age of 87 due to complications from Pancreatic cancer. She had been on again off again ill for some time. But the death of RBG brought with it a huge political uproar as leftists across the spectrum are demanding she not be replaced until after the election. (Daily Wire) There are some serious problems with waiting, but we’ll get to those. There are less than 7 weeks to the election.
The keyboard warriors of the world are great at threatening to burn everything down, or shut the entire country down, but they are correct in one thing: RBG died at the most critical time.
RBG died, Leftists do what they do best: threaten
“If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down.” Reza Aslan, formerly of CNN
If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.

This is one that Emmett Macfarlane, “Professor of Political Science” deleted…but it was archived. The internet is forever.
I’d have to disagree with Katie’s assessment of herself – she is a monster, as are all of her leftist buddies. They didn’t honor RBG’s life or her accomplishments- which were many. They used her passing as a political death wish for America.
The problem with waiting is that should the election be close enough to have contested results, the Supreme Court will be the deciding factor. Waiting could prove disastrous for the entire country.
“We cannot have Election Day come and go with a four-four court. A four-four 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…I’ll tell you one reason in particular why I think it is tremendously important that not only does the nomination happen next week, but that the confirmation happen before Election Day. Democrats and Joe Biden have made clear they intend to challenge this election. They intend to fight the legitimacy of this election. As you know, Hillary Clinton has told Joe Biden ‘under no circumstances should you concede. You should challenge this election.'” Senator Ted Cruz to Fox
Senator Cruz is correct – unless the election goes in such a landslide toward Trump that the results cannot be contested, we are in for months of hassles with no firm results. And if the court is locked in even spread, it really will be a bad situation for America. Cruz happens to be on the short list for SCOTUS nominations, but has expressed that he would rather be in the Senate fighting in the political arena.
As far as the leftist threats go, there have been riots every day now for months, so what else is new? RBG died and the partisan firestorm increased. She fought hard against the cancer that was killing her for months. She was highly intelligent, and though a screaming liberal, she was no dummy. She even said good things about her Conservative colleagues on the court – people like Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. While we didn’t agree with her political leanings, she was a force to be reckoned with and fearless in her fight for what she believed.
