So what do you think will happen if he lets one get confirmed before the election?

Was just thinking about it...seems like his best play is to sabotage whoever he nominates and blame the democrats.  

After RGBs seat, it's unlikely there will be another opening in the next decade let alone next 4 years. Think about it.

Maybe I'm missing something, but Trump letting a confirmation happen or seem inevitable before election day seems like it would be a big mistake.

Harry Reid reversed the filibuster rule, so there isn't anything democrats can do to stop this nomination. They can take the Kavanaugh approach and muddy the waters, but I guarantee you that Trump will nominate a woman which makes it harder to launch attacks on character.

What happens if his pick turns out to say things against him in the run-up to the Presidential election? Will it court negative press for Trump and will it impact the outcome of the election?

Hope we can get one more good scotus pick..

What? No...
SCOTUS picks are more important than him winning the election..
If the main reason for electing him is to install good conservative judges, why would I want him to delay appointing a judge?

He should most definitely slam one through while he can, Incase he loses in November..
SCOTUS picks should not be some pawn to be toyed with to try to gain a little edge in an election..

If he can get his judge in before the election, we will be happy that he did what we put him in there to do..
He has been doing a quite fine job with this thus far.. He has been a pretty darn good president from my view..

3 good judges, better than expected...
Damn good thing we elected Trump in 2016 and not Clinton..

I still think trump is going to win regardless of any SCOTUS games you may like for him to play..
I saw Theymoses post on this too, and I would rather have the pick than one more or less little edge for him in the election..

That’s like risking losing your kids in a divorce to argue about who gets to keep the cat..

Hm, I don't really understand what exactly you're saying here? The only way Trump could openly sabotage his own nominee is IF he was to get a few more defectors from within the GOP, but even with doing that, it would be TOTALLY on the GOP.

The GOP controls the Senate which means they'd be in full control of what is going on here. This won't originate in the House, so Trump and the GOP can't shift the blame this time. They're the ones that are driving the car, and they're in control of if this will hit the floor before election day. I imagine this is going to be a tiebreaker that Pence is the one to break, the people that will vote no will be the that are up for tough reelections in areas that have the potential to flip blue.

Even then, I think the GOP will be happy to lose control of the Senate to keep control of the SC for a few decades.

Not if Democrats pack the court. Which I think is a dumb idea. Pretty much guaranteed to backfire spectacularly. Which makes it pretty much certain to be attempted.

LOL

Court packing ends in only one way in my opinion:

1. Both sides continue to court pack until at some point we notice how dumb we are and then reform the SC in some way. Either setting an arbitrarily limit of 9 on the court, and at that point letting each side pick 4 (4 from GOP, 4 from DNC, and 1 moderate chief justice) OR we actually reform the court to include some sort of shifting federal appeals court members or something like that.

The 'both sides court packing' could go on for awhile.

Very dumb idea, could happen, but I HIGHLY doubt it.

I just spent 2 days downtown Grand Rapids and yeah..
The world is insane, Biden signs everywhere, city people are off their rocker crazy, the hospitals down there treat you like you are entering restricted military space or some shit..
The people are so conditioned to obey authority it’s scary..

Imma stay innawods..

Took grandpa to have a minor surgery, he had to stop to pee..
Stop at gas station and let him go in alone, I didn’t hear this till later..
Woman in there stopped him from using the bathroom because the bathrooms were “closed for Covid”..
She says she’s sorry, and he says “I’m sorry too because if you don’t let me in there I’m going to piss right here in the floor”..
She didn’t let him in the bathroom, poor old man couldn’t hold it and pissed his pants literally on the floor just like he said..

I knew we had to go buy him new pants, but didn’t find out till the next day that they refused to let him in the bathroom because Covid..

Autocorrect seems to be forcing me to capitalize Covid so I’m going to have to go back to saying china virus to spit it..

Sorry to read about issues at the gas station with your grandfather. Sounds like the woman was over the top with her reaction.

That is how Trump describes it (China virus, Wuhan virus and Wuhan flu), he said it in the past and said it today during his recorded message to the UNGA. Not sure if it is conducive to international diplomacy but it will appeal to his centre-right, right and far-right base as well as the evangelicals that he needs to please so badly he needs to vote for him in the US Presidential election.

I'm saying from Trumps perspective.

He was a registered Democrat not long ago.  He was pro-choice, pro gay marriage, donated to Clinton campaign and invited Bill and Hillary to his most recent wedding.  I doubt he really cares what SCOTUS looks like other than how it can be best leveraged to help him politically.

With the court packing threats my theory is kind of shot though since conservatives that only vote for Trump because of SCOTUS picks will still be motivated to do so if he gets a nominee through before the election.

Well blow me down with a feather... I never knew Trump was once-upon-a-time Democrat. I knew he socialised with the Clintons but never knew they were at his wedding to Melania.

Why did he change his "pro" views and why did he become a Republican?

I think pretty much everything he does is to either gain more power or not lose the power he already has.  Issues like abortion or gay rights don't affect him directly, so, he sides with whoever he thinks will help him the most with his ultimate goal - with the exception of when he acts out of spite.

If what you say is accurate (and I have no reason doubt you), it seems Trump is either a very shrewd businessman who gets what he wants depending on which way the momentum pendulum is swinging or he is more dangerous than I previously thought.

If he ends his political career as a one term President he still would have achieved what many thought was the impossible when launched his campaign in Trump towers back in 2015. Like him or not, have to give credit to him for tapping in to the right and far right voters as well as the evangelicals as their votes were an important factor in getting him to the White House.

Trump seems to thrive on any form of attention because of his seemingly deluded narcissistic personality but how much will Biden and Harris contribute towards a Trump victory if they fail to make the correct impression on the youth and first time voters? So hard to tell anything right now, things will become clearer on the day after the election when the votes are counted and the results start coming in fast.


Well blow me down with a feather... I never knew Trump was once-upon-a-time Democrat. I knew he socialised with the Clintons but never knew they were at his wedding to Melania.

Why did he change his "pro" views and why did he become a Republican?

~snip~

He was a registered Democrat not long ago.  He was pro-choice, pro gay marriage, donated to Clinton campaign and invited Bill and Hillary to his most recent wedding.  I doubt he really cares what SCOTUS looks like other than how it can be best leveraged to help him politically.

I think pretty much everything he does is to either gain more power or not lose the power he already has.  Issues like abortion or gay rights don't affect him directly, so, he sides with whoever he thinks will help him the most with his ultimate goal - with the exception of when he acts out of spite.

Yes. He repeatedly attacks groups comprising most of US population, like immigrants, Democrats, or women, so it's safe to say that he doesn't consider himself as working for them, let alone wants "to do well" for them.

Arguably he doesn't really want "to do well" for his Republican base either ("love the poorly educated") but as long as their goals align (getting him reelected) he'll pretend that he tolerates them. Watch him turn on the Republicans if he's not reelected.

Well I disagree..
It’s about doing well for the future of the country, not doing well for those who don’t care about the future of the country..

Immigrants and democrats don’t care about the future of the country, mostly.. They just care about what they think is shortsightedly best for themselves, and most women are too sympathetic to put logic before feelings and put freedom and opportunity of prosperity before giving free stuff to poor people..

If you want to try the power hungry authoritarian card, that lies squarely at the feet of the democrats/left..

Increase immigration of people that do not hold the values this country was founded on so they can vote selfishly.. Increase taxes on the real value creators to make life easier on the net negative taxpayers (getters).. Ban guns so people feel safer in more temporary security.. Reduce freedom of speech so people don’t get their feelings hurt.. Increase the scotus judge count above 9 so the founding principles can more easily be trampled.. “Mandate masks nationwide”.. Further socialize healthcare..
And on and on and on..

My post was bait that you were not supposed to take LOL

Even if I think that Republicans don't care about the future of the country (and given how easily they part with the principles of fiscal responsibility or even democracy itself it might be true) I still don't think their concerns shouldn't matter. Minority rule is a fucked up thing. Majority rule is fucked up most of the time too.

Sometimes I get the feeling that this country has been calling itself the beacon of freedom, the shining city on a hill for far too long so that people forgot what it really means. Speaking of immigrants - many of them come from truly screwed up places and tend to know the actual price of freedom much better than your average constitutionalist.

How is Trump seizing power from Congress? The senate has full authority to block a vote on a nominee if they please. Democrats have threatened to pack the courts if they don't get what they want here, which is basically seizing power from congress so judges can legislate from the bench.

Would probably have to agree with the fact that I don't think Trump is 'seizing power' from Congress. I don't think this is new of the executive branch to constantly take more and more power form Congress. Trump is typically following the natural progression of the all powerful executive.

Do I agree with this happening? No.

Do I think that most Presidents since fucking Nixon have done this? Yes.

Obama did it, Bush, Clinton, everyone. Each party yells and screams that it is a problem but then when 'their guy' is in office they disregard it.

I wasn't referring to the recent SCOTUS news.

Some examples of things he's done to weaken the legislative branch and increase the executive banch:

-Diverted military funding to pay for the border wall without congressional approval.

-Withheld funds that congress had already signed off on  to help Ukraine in order to pressure the Ukrainian president to publicly announce an investigation into Biden.

-Refuses to allow House leaders to be briefed on military strikes or potential military strikes - I think he said something like 'my tweets are your briefing'.
