SCOTUS Justice Ginsburg Passes

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died tonight at the age of 87. The Supreme Court announced her death, stating the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas. Ginsburg had battled cancer for years.

The Post Millennial

The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Following campaign remarks in Minnesota, President Trump was informed of Ginsburg’s passing –

She just died? Wow. I didn’t know that, you’re telling me now for the first time. She led an amazing life. What else can you say? She was an amazing woman, whether you agree or not. She was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I am actually sad to hear that. I’m sad to hear that.

President Donald J. Trump

In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.

By contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary. Once again, we will keep our promise, President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

On September 9, 2020, President Trump released a new list of potential Supreme Court nominees – as follows:

  • Bridget Bade (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit)
  • Daniel Cameron (Kentucky attorney general)
  • Paul Clement (former solicitor general of the United States)
  • Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)
  • Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.)
  • Stuart Kyle Duncan (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit)
  • Steven Engel (Office of Legal Counsel, DOJ)
  • Noel Francisco (former solicitor general of the United States)
  • Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.)
  • James Ho (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit)
  • Greg Katsas (U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit)
  • Barbara Lagoa (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit)
  • Christopher Landau (U.S. ambassador to Mexico)
  • Carlos Muñiz (Supreme Court of Florida)
  • Martha Pacold (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois)
  • Peter Phipps (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit)
  • Sarah Pitlyk (U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri)
  • Allison Jones Rushing (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit)
  • Kate Todd (deputy White House counsel)
  • Lawrence VanDyke (U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit)

What’s next?

I believe that, despite threats of ramped up rioting from Biden supporters, President Trump, per authority granted to him in the US Constitution, must nominate a conservative justice to the Supreme Court. In turn, the Senate must vote to confirm that nominee. If the shoe were on the other foot, democrats would not hesitate to act – nor should we.

Regarding republicans in name only

If a Republican senator fails to support a qualified, originalist nominee from the president, then their status as a Republican must be forfeited. Every effort to be made to effect their de facto expulsion from the party, whether it’s by a state recall, expelling them from the party caucus, stripping them of committee seats, or supporting a direct primary challenger. To falter in this moment is a betrayal of what Republicans have promised their voters for decades.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford Is Lying

I suspect that the allegation of sexual assault described by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is a complete fabrication.

Rather, it is a coordinated attack on President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Despite concerns expressed that such an appointment may lead to a reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision – as it certainly should – the reality is that this particular opening on the bench represents the most important judicial vacancy in modern history, previously held by Justice Kennedy – that is, the swing vote.

A known, far-left activist in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dr. Ford spent time scrubbing her social media accounts of related leftist activities & statements prior to making her accusation from 36 years ago. Coincidence? No. She is knowingly permitting herself to be used as a tool by left-wing activists – a.k.a., her lawyers and a cadre of radical democrats – to thwart President Trump, while making money and bolstering her notoriety at the same time.

The reason that Dr. Ford never came forward with these allegations earlier is that the described event never happened.

A clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California who has also taught and worked at Stanford University since 1988, her presentation before the Senate Judiciary Committee appeared more akin to role playing than honest testimony. Perhaps she’s adopted an alternate personality to present herself, speaking in a high-pitched voice with inflection to denote a sense of youthful innocence. This, combined with her rather clumsy physical gestures and mannerisms, provide a well-suited appearance in which her counsel may further their presentation – holding her chair when sitting, clarifying simple terms for her to understand, demonstrating instructions as if dealing with a child.

Do not equate emotional testimony with credibility.

A “he said, she said” case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them.
Rachel Mitchell

The following conclusions reached by Rachel Mitchell (Nominations Investigative Counsel, United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary) provide a thorough analysis of Dr. Ford’s testimony:

  1. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of when the alleged assault happened.
  2. Dr. Ford has struggled to identify Judge Kavanaugh as the assailant by name.
  3. When speaking with her husband, Dr. Ford changed her description of the incident to become less specific.
  4. Dr. Ford has no memory of key details of the night in question – details that could help corroborate her account.
  5. Dr. Ford’s account of the alleged assault has not been corroborated by anyone she identified as having attended – including her lifelong friend.
  6. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of the alleged assault.
  7. Dr. Ford has struggled to recall important recent events relating to her allegations, and her testimony regarding recent events raises further questions about her memory.
  8. Dr. Ford’s description of the psychological impact of the event raises questions.
  9. The activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford’s attorneys likely affected Dr. Ford’s account.

The reason that Dr. Ford’s allegations weren’t presented to the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley in a timely manner is in all likelihood because Senator Diane Feinstein and the democrats needed time to develop their contrived narrative in greater detail, not to mention selecting specific left-wing radical attorneys as representation for Dr. Ford. Had this information been presented earlier, it would have been resolved and no longer useful as a tactic by which to delay the process.

A few other points of interest in my opinion include an inability of either Dr. Ford’s parents or siblings to corroborate her story. Also, that she couldn’t remember whether or not she took a polygraph test on the same day as her grandmother’s funeral. Last, that her therapist’s notes from 2012 – which were cited as corroborating evidence – are suddenly declared privileged. Convenient, indeed.

Hopefully, once the FBI concludes it’s 7th investigation without any additional substantive facts, attention may be turned to address how specifically Dr. Ford’s letter was leaked to the press, a task to which Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Tom Cotton have announced an interest.

Though many people have suggested that she may have been sexually assaulted by some person, in some place and at some time – not Judge Brett Kavanaugh – I suspect that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is lying.

Constitutional Originalist Bumper Sticker

Constitutional Originalist Bumper Sticker

An originalist seeks to interpret the meaning of the text in our Constitution as it was intended to be understood at the time when it was originally written. As such, our Constitution is not a ‘living’ document, wherein aspirations of judicial activists would otherwise be exercised according to a given political climate. Recently nominated to the Supreme Court by President Trump, Judge Neil Gorsuch will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Justice Antonin Scalia, applying the same originalist judicial philosophy. Enjoy this bumper sticker.

Biden: No SCOTUS Pick Until After Election

On June 25, 1992, (then) Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE), delivered an emphatic floor speech, stating:

…it is my view that if a Supreme Court justice resigns tomorrow or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not — and not — name a nominee until after the November election is completed.

And…

The Senate, too, Mr. President must consider how it would respond to a Supreme Court vacancy that would occur in the full throes of an election year. It is my view that if the President goes the way of Presidents [Millard] Fillmore and [Andrew] Johnson, and presses an election year nomination, the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over.

Final Prayer At Funeral For Antonin Scalia

Father Paul D. Scalia, the son of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the episcopal vicar for clergy in the nearby suburban Diocese of Arlington, Va., had the final prayer:

With faith in Jesus Christ, we must reverently bury the body of our brother. Let us pray with confidence to God, in whose sight all creation lives, that He will raise up in holiness and power the mortal body of our brother and command his soul to be among the blessed.

May God grant him a merciful judgment, deliverance from death, and pardon of sin. May Christ the Good Shepard carry him home to be at peace with the Father. May he rejoice forever in the presence of the eternal king, and in the company of all the saints.

SCOTUS Justice Nomination Must Be Delayed

The fact of the matter is that it’s been standard practice over the last nearly 80 years that Supreme Court nominees are not nominated and confirmed during a presidential election year. Given the huge divide in the country, and the fact that this President, above all others, has made no bones about his goal to use the courts to circumvent Congress and push through his own agenda, it only makes sense that we defer to the American people who will elect a new president to select the next Supreme Court Justice.
