Something tells me if he shows up at 4:20, you’ll be a little preoccupied.
I could out "tact" boobie after smoking a blunt and killing a 6er of blue yum yums after 8years of abstaining.

That and the 6.5 Cr reaches out there pretty decent so I got sometime before he gets to close 🤷‍♂️

302 Brett Kavanaugh opponents, October 4, 2018​



Capitol Police arrest demonstrators protesting US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Capitol Police arrest demonstrators protesting US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Several days of protest over the nomination of Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court yielded hundreds of arrests, but many of them came on a single day, as lawmakers reviewed an FBI report outlining allegations against the would-be justice.

It was another star-studded affair, as comedian Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski were among those taken into custody.

The arrests began mid-afternoon with 293 people arrested for unlawfully demonstrating in a Senate building and nine more arrested later in another Senate building, a Capitol Police spokeswoman said. All were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, the department said.

Whataboutism? Also, I was telling Sklar about all the assassination attempts on Trump. Every Republican President is going to have 10x more attempts than Dems just because of the mental health of the party members on the other side.
Are you trying to say that the wacko left is more dangerous on the wacko right?

How many crazy ****s with car loads of guns were arrested after Nov 4th? 🤦‍♂️

Ironic?!! Aren’t you the one saying Jan 6th was an insurrection? None of the people that were invited into Congress were armed either.
Yes but you dipshits like to say "they didn't have guns so it wasn't" hence the "by your ignorant definition".

Sorry reading is hard

It's OK, I'm very mature for my age. At least, that's what all the pedophile liberal Democrats tell me when they DM me over the internet.
Funny I just got done visiting Trump country, Southern Missouri south of Springfield, and they cherish their chomos down there.

30yo dude banging 12-14yo poor chicks is encouraged, shit there are 2 or 3 complete families of incestuous rape babies and nobody does anything.

This used to be heavy demorat country, sadly they are all now heavy trumpers.

One side wants to normalize pedophilia and inbreeding, the other shuns this type of immoral behavior. I'll give you one guess as to which side is which.

Sadly, I have family down in Southern MO.

There are some perks to being down there. Cheap land, nice scenery, abundant porn, year-round fireworks, abundant meth, and hot young gash till they are around 23, and they have popped out 3 kids, with at least 2 guys.

You gotta act when they are young down there, because that slope grade is steep.

If you think either side is "closer than ever" to the center you are a political dipshit and have blinders on


That is 100% fact in 21'
No the left is so far away from the center. They couldn't find it with a map.

It's just true.

Is the OP saying that the Dem leadership won't get enough Dem votes for their judges?

That's how the title reads anyway.

Party division like this is literally killing this country:



Mitch McConnell walks through a door.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday. Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images
On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that he would refuse to let President Joe Biden fill a Supreme Court seat in 2024 if Republicans win the Senate next year. McConnell also suggested that he would not let Biden fill a Supreme Court vacancy in 2023, even if the president nominated “a normal mainstream liberal.” These comments are not remotely surprising. The Republican Party has outsourced much of its agenda to the federal judiciary, a strategy that requires its lawmakers to ruthlessly extinguish Democrats’ influence over the courts. To that end, a GOP-controlled Senate will never again confirm a Democratic president’s Supreme Court nominee. Not in an election year or any other year. Not in your lifetime or mine. Never.

McConnell played slightly coy when discussing the possibility of a Supreme Court confirmation in 2023, telling Hewitt: “Well, we’d have to wait and see what happens.” But anyone who seriously believes a Republican-controlled Senate would confirm a Biden nominee that year—or even hold hearings on one—is deluding themselves. McConnell’s approach to judicial confirmations reflects two core principles of the modern GOP: first, that only the federal judiciary can impose key items in the Republican Party platform that are too unpopular to pass through the democratic process; and second, that only conservative judges faithfully apply the Constitution, whereas liberals make it up as they go along.

These principles might appear to contradict each other. But Republicans have harmonized them by convincing themselves that their platform perfectly reflects the Constitution. Thus, in the eyes of the GOP, when liberal judges issue decisions that align with Democrats’ priorities, they are judicial activists who are betraying their duty to apply the law as written. When conservative judges issue decisions that align with Republicans’ priorities, by contrast, they are independent jurists who are honoring the Framers’ design.

This design, according to Republicans, includes a number of policy items that the GOP has struggled to implement through legislation due to lack of popular support. Consider gun laws. Most Republican politicians oppose bans on assault weapons and support the right to carry a concealed firearm in public. But Republicans have failed to repeal the assault weapon bans currently on the books in seven states and the District of Columbia. They have also failed to repeal the strict limits on concealed carry that remain in nine states.

Republicans no longer need to push these policies democratically, though, because they have stacked the federal courts with Second Amendment enthusiasts who are keen to impose these policies by judicial fiat. Indeed, the Supreme Court appears poised to strike down stringent restrictions on concealed carry, thanks to the votes of President Donald Trump’s nominees. And earlier this month, a conservative federal judge struck down California’s assault weapon ban. Further, an ever-growing number of Trump’s judicial nominees have questioned the constitutionality of other gun laws, including large-capacity magazine bans, limits on handgun transfers, and possession of firearms by people who were convicted of felonies or involuntarily committed.

Republicans did not pass any major gun rights legislation under Trump, but they didn’t need to: Confirming 234 federal judges, most of them Second Amendment zealots, is a far more effective and enduring attack on gun safety laws than any mere bill could ever be. And this story will continue to play out across a broad range of GOP policy priorities, from abolishing affirmative action to hobbling environmental protections to shredding voting rights.

This plan—filling the judiciary with partisans and ideologues who will implement GOP priorities from the bench—might seem inconsistent with the right’s incessant complaints of “judicial activism.” Republicans, however, have formulated another principle to square this circle: They insist that conservative judges simply apply the law and the Constitution as written, while liberal judges inflict their policy preferences on the people in the guise of neutral judging. When liberal judges strike down laws that prohibit same-sex marriage, Republicans assert, that’s lawless judicial activism. When conservative judges strike down laws that protect voting rights, that’s just enforcing the Constitution. If you believe that progressive jurisprudence is fundamentally illegitimate, then you should do everything in your power to keep liberal judges off the bench. And that is what McConnell, along with most of his caucus, has sworn to do.

From this ideological vantage point, Republicans’ crusade against Democrats’ judicial nominees is not only acceptable but downright noble. The GOP sees itself as the defender of the Constitution, safeguarding the judiciary from liberal lunatics by any means necessary. This tactic precedes McConnell’s blockade of Merrick Garland in 2016, and it transcends the Supreme Court. The Republican-controlled Senate confirmed just two of President Barack Obama’s nominees to the federal courts of appeals in his final two years. McConnell refused even to consider most of these nominees, holding seats vacant for years.

And the senator was not punished for this behavior. To the contrary, his gambit succeeded: Republicans held the Senate and captured the presidency, allowing Trump to fill more than 100 seats that opened under Obama. In light of this track record, it seems extremely unlikely that McConnell will confirm any of Biden’s nominees to the federal appeals courts if Republicans take the Senate in 2022. In truth, it is hard to envision a GOP-controlled Senate ever confirming another appeals court nominee put forth by a Democratic president. Now that all-out obstruction has proven so successful and Democrats have unilaterally disarmed, there is no motivation for the GOP to change its behavior. The enormous and consistent structural tilt of the Senate toward the GOP means that there will probably never be any reason for Republicans to compromise.

Again, part of the problem is that Democrats have not adopted McConnell’s cutthroat approach to the courts. They confirmed 10 of President George W. Bush’s nominees to the federal courts of appeals after taking the Senate in 2006—five times more than Republicans confirmed after taking the Senate in 2014. Most Democratic lawmakers still oppose expanding the Supreme Court to dilute the influence of justices who were appointed after McConnell changed the rules of the game, blocking Garland in Obama’s final months in office and confirming Amy Coney Barrett in Trump’s final weeks. And even judges nominated by Democrats seem oddly naive about the partisan reality of judicial confirmations today. Exhibit A, of course, is Justice Stephen Breyer, who is reportedly resisting calls for his retirement despite the fact that Democrats will lose the opportunity to replace him if just one of their elderly senators in a state with a Republican governor gives up the ghost.

Republicans have nothing to lose and everything to gain by blockading Biden’s judicial nominees. Already, GOP senators are concocting ridiculous reasons to oppose them. Ketanji Brown Jackson, whom Biden nominated to a federal appeals court, received just three Republican votes to advance her nomination to debate on Thursday; in 2013, she was confirmed to a district court by a voice vote. Jackson’s qualifications haven’t changed over the last eight years, but the circumstances have: She is now a top contender to fill Breyer’s seat (if he ever steps down). The overwhelming majority of Republican senators who voted against her last week were sending an unmistakable message that they stand with McConnell on judges. Forget 2024 and 2023—if the Senate flipped tomorrow and Breyer retired the day after, McConnell or a successor would keep his seat vacant for as long as a Democrat resides in the White House, or as long as Republicans were to hold the Senate.

There may be nothing Democrats will be able to do about such a blockade if and when it happens. That’s why they need to act on the courts now. Biden is already naming nominees at a commendable pace; Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has cranked the confirmation machine into high gear; and left-leaning judges throughout the judiciary are stepping aside to ensure that a Democrat can replace them. Only Breyer can decide when to retire. But Democrats can help him see the light by filling every vacancy with the grave urgency it deserves.
Damn that was long. I think now that approving a supreme court justice will be difficult on either side if the parties in the White House and the Senate don't align.

I can't see a democratic controlled Senate approving a republican administration's nominee either.

So your long winded shock at what the republicans might do is a bit lame considering that the democrats would do the same.

Yes they should have been shot but they have arrested a select few of the pieces of shit, same as with the pieces of shit on the other side.
Not what you were saying when your side was burning looting and murdering all over the country, you said it was mostly peaceful and their right. Your VP was paying those murderous demorats to kill Republicans.

I know you're talking about the way "it currently seems to be" but I hope you don't think that it should be that way.

Obama's two nominees confirmed to SCOTUS had republican yes votes, despite the democrat majority in the senate and the democrat president. Roberts was confirmed 78-22, with half of democrats voting to confirm.

The major difference now is the threat to not bring the nomination up for a confirmation hearing and vote. That has happened once since 1954. Holy Snikees. Give the nominee a hearing, a chance to decline the nomination, and a vote. Force those voting no to have a compelling reason to oppose the candidate. Force whatever president to nominate someone that has a chance of being confirmed. But don't refuse to bring it to the senate floor.

Please don't act like both sides are equal in this dumfuggery. They might get there in the future, but in the past, the R's have been bad actors with regard to confirmations in the recent past.

If Democrats had visons of America beyond today that America actually wanted then they would have no reason to change rules or pack courts. Their message would be loved... but it isn't.
