An impeached president should not be able to nominate a Supreme Court Justice but he’s going to. This is the moment the filthy power hungry repugs have been waiting for. They’re going to push this through if it’s the last thing they do (and if people get their asses to the polls it will be the last thing they do.) When he announced that he’s going to pick a woman he made the shape of a woman’s body with his hands. She better look good in a thong. And she better not be too smart. He doesn’t like them smart.
Don’t bother calling your senators or pointing out the many hypocrisies of Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham. They don’t care. The Republicans can not be shamed into doing the right thing. They’ve kept Trump in power just so they could pack the courts. This seat is the cherry on top of their rich white male supreme sundae. The Republicans only care about one thing: keeping power. If they succeed and Trump loses he will contest the election and it will go to the Supreme Court and he will remain in power, possibly indefinitely.
All of our energy needs to go in to getting people registered and committed to voting for Joe Biden and every Democrat down ballot. Vote every single Republican out of office. Our only hope is to remove them from power.
If Republicans are removed from power and the Democrats take control of the Senate, they can add 2 more justices to balance out the damage done to the court by Trump and the Republicans. They can impeach Kavanaugh. They can admit Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia into the union and gain 4 more Democrats in the Senate. If Mark Kelly beats Martha McSally in Arizona (who lost her senate run but was appointed by the governor after John McCain died,) he could potentially be sworn in by November 30, during the lame-duck session of Congress and that could tip the vote on Trump’s pick for SCOTUS. The Republicans must be defeated at every level. They must lose power. Forever.
A mentally deranged president should not be able to nominate a Supreme Court Justice either, but he’s going to. He’s already turned “FILL THAT SEAT!” into a rally chant. He’s out of control, doing MAGA rallies, soaking up the adulation and making a total ass of himself and the country. In Minnesota, where many Hmong and Somali refugees have settled, he riled the racist crowd up with, “One of the most vital issues in this election is the subject of refugees. You know it. You know it, perhaps better than almost anybody. Lots of luck. You havin’ a good time with your refugees?” He repetitively said Barack Hussein Obama to conjure up images of a foreign born black man who dared run for president and then flattered the crowd by telling them, “You have good genes, you know that, right? You have good genes. A lot of it is about the genes, isn’t it, don’t you believe? The racehorse theory. You have good genes in Minnesota.” He celebrated and made fun of Ali Velshi, a member of the free press who got shot on the job as he covered a civil rights protest, “He got hit on the knee with a canister of tear gas,” (he was actually hit by a rubber bullet,) “Wasn’t it really a beautiful sight? It’s called law and order.” He bragged about being the first president to put an astronaut on “Nars” (his own country, short for narcissist,) and said there would be no God if Joe Biden wins. He bragged about not using a teleprompter while standing in between 2 teleprompters. He said our allies treat us badly, “Our allies in many ways treat us worse than our enemies,” and said he lost a lot of friends when he bacame president. His only friends now are in Congress. He accused Joe Biden of getting injections of performance enhancing drugs “in the ass” before the debates. “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again. You’ll never see me again.”
He may be out of control, bat shit crazy, racist, a fascist, a sadist, a mass murderer, and a wrecking ball for the country, but he gives the Republicans everything they want. Senators are already saying they’ll be voting for the nominee without knowing who it is yet.
The only combative strategy is to vote them all out. We need to beat them and BEAT THEM BADLY.
A petition against replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg until the election is over got more than 475,000 signatures in less than a day.
ACTBlue shattered it’s own donation records since RBG’s death. Yesterday was the biggest online fundraising in the history of the Democratic Party.
48 hours after it was announced that Kamala Harris was the VP pick, the Biden campaign raised over $48 million. Less than 24 hours after RBG left us, Democrats raised over $80 million. Strong women will move us forward.
Angela Merkel emerged as leader of the free world out of the ashes of Hitler’s concentration camps. We can do it too.
RBG hadn’t been dead 24 hours and they had the crowd chanting, “Fill the seat! Fill the seat!”
We will fill the seat. His. And Theirs.
Ruthless sons of bitches.
44 days until we get to vote.
