  1. Maybe she’s not the full-blown commie we thought she was? No Matter. Joe Biden’s replacement of Beyer will be.
    Jesse Kelly reminded us yesterday that no matter who the nominee is. Jesse was raped by him as a child!
    Doesn’t remember where or when. But he knows it happened. We have to believe all talk show hosts. The nominee is a rapist.

    • Joe, you should start a pool. I’ll take Kamala Harris to the SCOTUS. Michelle Obama becomes VP. And Biden gets the 25A!

      • I’m betting there will be a long-empty seat, similar to when Antonin Scalia was killed, er, I mean died peacefully in his sleep. no idea who will be the final nomine. I’m sure there will be a number of low-IQ affirmative-action nominations, and smart but totally controlled meatpuppets, before the final choice is made. Barring massive upheavals in a lot of things that leave all sorts of unexpected openings, I expect it’ll be no earlier than March of ’23 before we get a confirmation, more likely early ’25.

        • I’ll go with that. I don’t see any confirmation happening in an evenly-divided Senate (can Kamala vote to appoint herself?). The Senate is almost certain to flip this fall, with no chance of any Biden appointment getting through. I think the 2025 filling of the vacancy is quite likely.

          I did think it funny the other day when some Republican noted that we don’t need to rush into any decision on this appointment – we can take our time. Unlike the last appointment, which really needed to be filled. Not that I disagree with the choices but certainly no partisan politics in that statement!

          • Yes, in spite of what that left wing propagandist Laurence Tribe said, the VP can break a tie on a nomination vote. That includes one for herself, because at the time of the vote she’s still VP. The answer is right there in Plain English in the Constitution (article 1 section 3).
            But if she were to be appointed, that leaves the post of VP empty, an opening to be filled by nomination and a majority vote of both Houses (25th Amendment, section 2). No tie breaking there since the office of VP is vacant at that point, so whoever is nominated would require at least one R vote to get in.

  2. Arguments akin to “how many angels can dance on the head of a pin”. And argued for the express purpose of trying to restrict a right as much as they think they can get away with without repercussions. Make no mistake about it. Aside from the late Scalia and perhaps Thomas NONE of the SCOTUS pirates truly believe us peons should be able to own the means to defend ourselves…be it from street criminals OR elected/appointed criminals.

    • Maybe we should get use to not asking permission? Like the concept our forefathers use to live by.
      Essential freedom demands that we carry a firearms. It demands we stand ready to defend all we hold dear.
      And one should never ask permission to do so. And anyone demanding we do should be as our forefathers said. They are, not-with-standing.
      Automatically persona non grata.
