SCOTUS Game Time

Written by Laurie Higgins

The left always plays hardball. The right rarely does. With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg (RBG), it’s now game time for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).

People are speculating–rightly in my view–that if President Trump nominates a replacement for RBG, then leftists (mostly violent rioters) will do what they do best. People are speculating too–rightly in my view–that if President Trump is re-elected, then leftists (mostly violent rioters) will do what they do best.

The reason for the boiling rage of leftists at the prospect of not having a majority of activist Justices on the Court is that, for Democrats, the U.S. Supreme Court is their supreme lawmaking body.

The likelihood of hordes of Millennial Rumpelstiltkins rampaging through our streets if they don’t get their way should tell us exactly what needs to happen: President Trump should nominate and the U.S. Senate Republicans should confirm a solid constitutional originalist–as is their constitutional right to do–and President Trump should be re-elected.

We must not roll over and show squishy underbellies and muffin tops to violent anarchists. If we do, the power of the mob grows, and we deserve the oppressive tyrannical government we get.

If President Trump does not nominate or the U.S. Senate does not confirm a Justice, and the left wins the presidency and U.S. Senate, game over. The U.S. Supreme Court would be lost; D.C. would become a state thereby giving the U.S. Senate to Democrats forever; the filibuster would be gone, so there would be nothing standing in the way of AOC’s radical agenda; and illegals would get the vote, thereby guaranteeing more votes for Democrats.

If President Trump nominates someone good, but self-identifying “moderate” U.S. Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and quisling Mitt Romney (R-UT) thwart the nomination, Trump’s base will be motivated to ensure President Trump is re-elected.

If, on the other hand, President Trump doesn’t even nominate anyone, his base will feel angry, betrayed, and defeated. He must nominate someone.

In my lifetime, there has never been an election of greater consequence. Think about the future for your children and grandchildren. Figure out what you can do to ensure liberty for them.

So, start doing those planks, and–to switch metaphors–gird yourself for battle.
