Supreme Court Nominee To Be Named on Sept. 26, as Jacobins Prepare Response

Sept. 23, 2020 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump said on Sept. 22 that he will announce his nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court this Saturday, Sept. 26 at 5 p.m. Asked, could his doing so tear the country apart? Trump was blunt: Nine justices are needed on the Supreme Court when the Democrats know full well that their sending out tens of millions of unsolicited ballots—not when requested, as in absentee ballots, but unsolicited—is “a scam ... a hoax.” Thus the importance of having a full court, “because what they’re doing is trying to sow confusion and everything else. And, you know, when they talk about Russia, China, and all these others, they will be able to do something here, because paper ballots are very simple—whether they counterfeit them, forge them, do whatever you want. It’s a very serious problem. The Democrats know what they’re doing is wrong, and all they want to do is go forward with it. So I think you’re going to need the nine justices. Also, I have a constitutional obligation to put in nine justices.”

With Mitt Romney giving his support for a Senate vote on the nomination before the election, even the Democrats see approval as likely. The likes of Sen. Ed Markey, Jerry Nadler, AOC, Joe Kennedy, et al. are talking up wild counter-attacks—should they win the election. These range from promises that the Democrats will “stack the court” in 2021 by expanding the number of justices, to “blowing up the entire system” and getting rid of the Electoral College (that from CNN’s Don Lemon) or crushing the GOP’s Senate advantage by granting statehood (with two senators apiece, to Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.), possibly splitting California into seven states, and restricting the Supreme Court’s right to review most cases (that in the pages of London’s Guardian from Obama-ite David Litt, an American political speechwriter, who has written such books as Thanks, Obama: My Hopey Changey White House Years and Democracy in One Book or Less: How It Works, Why It Doesn’t, and Why Fixing It Is Easier Than You Think.)

“Mainstream” Democrats such as former Arizona Sen. DeConcini are warning it could harm Biden’s electoral chances if he discusses what he may do in response; he should just focus on what Trump is doing. Col. Pat Lang (ret.), in his “Sic Semper Tyrannis” blog, cited Ben Shapiro’s warning that the Democrats have become the party of “disintegration,” and said that the unrest in the U.S. resembles “the French Revolution in real time without the actual physical guillotines.” Machine Democrats like Schumer, Kaine, Pelosi, et al. are losing control of their party “just as the Girondists lost control of the National Assembly as history moved them along on the way to their ride in the tumbrils [to the guillotines].... Joe should listen for the rumble of the wooden wheels,” Lang adds. “But! Do not despair! I doubt that the Armed Forces and the Deplorables would accept the seizure of power by the Jacobin Marxists. There may be generals and admirals who would be tempted to accept such a government, but the troops.... “
