Who will replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court? The Democrats say that the Constitution gives Obama the power to nominate someone to fill the vacancy. And they are 100% correct.

But the Republicans say that the Constitution says the Senate has to confirm whoever is nominated and that they can reject candidates or simply stall for a year until there is a new President. And they are 100% correct.

So who will win?

That depends on who is willing to go the farthest to win. The voters are a wild card in this kerfluffle if this is seen as a big issue next November. Or Obama could make a recess appointment who will serve until the next Senate begins next winter. Last but not least, the Notorious RBG is getting up there in years and there could be another vacancy at any time.

As for the election, what was supposed to be an uneventful primary season ending in the coronation of the two establishment front-runners in each party has turned into a donnybrook.

Bernie Sanders was supposed to be a nominal sparring for Hillary so she could get warmed up for the fall campaign. Fergawdsakes, the man isn’t even a real Democrat! Hillary is feeling a Bernie sensation and she is not happy about it.

Jeb! Bush was expected to face a little stiffer competition, but he would have a huge money advantage and the party machinery on his side. The other contenders were supposed to be positioning themselves for future runs and/or raise their status and name recognition.

If one year ago you were to tell people that Jeb! would not be the nominee, they would guess he was beaten by someone like Scott Walker or Rick Perry. If you told them that Donald Trump would be leading the GOP pack right now they would laughed and called you crazy.

If history is any guide then this year should favor the GOP. Since FDR only once has the same party held the White House for more than two consecutive terms. But this year, who knows?

Hillary is hoping to outlast the Bernie Boom and then win the nomination with the super delegates. Her strategy for the general election (if she gets there) will be to run on her vagina and hope the Republicans self-destruct. The conventional wisdom is that the Democrats have some built-in advantages in the Electoral College.

I’m not sure if Bernie has a strategy. I think he’s just having fun and if he wins he’ll be as surprised as anybody.

Donald Trump is in it to win it. He’s already shifting to a general election strategy. He knows that the GOPe despises him and will do anything to take him down, so he is trying to bypass them. If he storms the convention with a massive delegate lead he will dare them to steal the nomination away from him.

Ted Cruz had a very good strategy. He kept a low profile while raising money and spending lots of time in Iowa. He expected Trump to fade or implode at which time he would grab the front-runner banner and use his momentum to rack up some early wins. But Trump didn’t fade or implode. So now Ted is the front-runner for second place.

Marco Rubio was supposed to be the GOP Obama. Jeb was supposed to just show up and win. I’m not sure what all the others had planned as a path to victory. Pretty much everybody but Trump is hoping to outlast the rest of the pack and get the GOPe to consolidate behind them as the Not-Trump candidate.

Here is the most important thing to remember about this election:


One of these people will be standing on a podium next January with one hand on a bible and the other raised, taking the oath of office. It really doesn’t matter how they get there.

They can lie, play dirty, cheat, break the law, steal votes, pack ballot boxes – it does not matter. JFK cheated but he was still President. Obama cheated but he still won.

Which brings us back to the Supreme Court. If there is any legal action filed regarding this upcoming election, guess who will be deciding the winner? Remember Bush v. Gore?

    This isn’t the post I started to write. I dunno what happened.

  2. Myiq2xu says:

    I am not a Trump supporter, nor am I a bookie. But if I was a bookie then I would have Trump listed as the favorite to win.

    In other words, he’s not the candidate I like best, but he is the candidate I think is gonna win.

  4. DandyTIger says:

    I’m for sticking it to the man. And the super rich guy, sort of the man, might be the best person to do it. I have my doubts that if Trump won he would actually stick it to anyone. I suspect he would wheel and deal and try to get one or two things done. I’m not even sure he’d care about a second term, which probably makes the establishment even more nervous. But as they say, it’s still a bit early and anything can happen.

    • elliesmom says:

      I don’t think Trump would run for a second term given his age unless he does such a good job of hiring people who can keep things running well, he just has to show up for a “board meeting” once a week or so. If he could that, then why not stick around. But the one and done aspect of it otherwise is one of the reasons I’m not worried about his winning.

    New CNN/ORC Poll in Nevada. Clinton 48%…Sanders 47%.

    • leslie says:

      In the poll I saw, it was Trump 47%…Bush 1%
      with Cruz and Rubio at 17% and 18%.


      • DeniseVB says:

        This pretty much explains Trump has the Ross Perot supporters in his pocket, plus a bunch more ….

        • Somebody says:

          It’s not just blue collar, it’s white collar too. A lot of the white collar jobs have been out sourced or replaced by foreigners brought here on visas. The ones that still have a job have seen their wages depressed. Wages have been flat or declined for a couple of decades now, except for the top 5% of wage earners.

          I read some staggering statistics yesterday, since November 2008 the working age population in the US has increased by 18 million, however the number of those employed is only 5.5 million. Meanwhile 12.4 million working age dropped out bringing the total of working aged people not working to 102 million which is 40.4% of our working age population.

          There is a lot of frustration out there.

          • jeffhas says:

            There is a total realignment coming. The Repub party is about to become a really Big Tent. Trump is bringing in Union voters and center leaning Dems… The Repubs are scared because they fear losing control – which they will while Trump takes over the party – when in fact they should be on board, because he is going to bring so many new voters to them and pull voters from the Dem Party, that the Repubs will have acces to more voters then they have had in decades. They will have more voters on their rolls for a generation – they will have gone from a declining brand to the majority brand (in number of voters) almost overnight. They will still be ‘challenged’ in the electoral college, but the Repub brand that was declining will be strong for a while at least…. And likewise it will face the Dems to rethink and probably rebrand after likely being in the wilderness for the next few years.

            This is what I’m seeing out here, that suddenly there are people willing to go vote who pretty much couldn’t care less, or stayed home because they were disgusted. It looks pretty frightening if you are a status quo politician.

          • helenk3 says:

            Who knew. Obama’s open-borders is causing the growing income disparity in this country:

            In 1988 there were 16 million immigrants (including less than a million illegal aliens) living in the United States. Today that number has skyrocketed to 42.4 million (including an estimated 2 million illegal aliens).

            This enormous increase (165%) in the immigrant population has not only put pressure on a stagnant job market but it has also been a major factor in the decline of median income in the country.

            1988: less than one million illegals out of 16 million immigrants
            2016: today 12 million illegals out of 42 million immigrants

            During that same time 50 million American babies were aborted.

    Cruz has just been creeping me out lately. Now he’s in trouble again. For the same kind of crap too.

    S.C. Rep. Trey Gowdy demands Ted Cruz denounce misleading Facebook post

    • Somebody says:

      These things are the handy work of Cruz’s campaign manager, his reputation precedes him. Jeff Roe is trying his best to become the next Rove or Carville. Cruz has given him a ticket to the big time and big money, he’s going to do whatever it takes to stake his claim. Cruz selected him knowing better than most how he operates because Jeff Roe worked for Cruz’s senate opponent in the primary.

      • Dora says:

        You’re right. I remember reading about Jeff Roe. He was in trouble in Mississippi before joining the Cruz campaign in Texas. Well, he’s certainly not very helpful to his client. I don’t know why he is still there.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Oops!!! Trust ted is Bust ted!! 😆

    • blowme0bama says:

      Same here. He was my 1st choice then trump sort of entered the equation. Over time I have days where I think trump is just the enema this f’d up place needs. Other days I can’t get past his schtick. Lately, Cruz’s dirty tactics have given me pause about him as well. I think I’d rather have Cruz, but HOPE I’d be happy with what I imagine a trump presidency would look like.

    • 1539days says:

      Maybe Trey Gowdy could try getting Hillary Clinton convicted first.

  7. Dora says:

    Now over 200,000 of his sheep are going to add to this spectacle. Yikes!

  8. Somebody says:

    I’m sick of the SCOTUS chest thumping already. It’s Obama’s duty to nominate and yes the senate can confirm or reject the nominee, it’s that simple so STFU and do your jobs.

    How it plays out depends on who the nominee is and how the senate reacts. If the senate refuses to hold hearings, no matter who Obama nominates……bad for the senate republicans. If Obama takes the chicken shit route and nominates some radical during a recess appointment, I don’t even think the MSM can cover his ass for that. The public will see through it, the MSM is losing a lot of their ability to control the narrative. An exception to the recess appointment would be if he nominated a retired justice like Souter or O’Connor or a similar well respected moderate judge to fill the seat until his or the next POTUS’s nominee can be confirmed.

    If Obama nominates a far left wing radical AND the senate has hearings and rejects that nominee; I honestly don’t think it will make a bit of difference in the elections. IOW each side will use it to pump up their bases, but those in the middle will see it for what it is and probably be all the more disgusted.

    If however, Obama nominates someone more moderate and the senate rejects them, then I think that won’t play well for the senate or the republicans. The only exception I can see to that would be if the nominee is very anti-guns, with a proven bad track record on the 2nd amendment. There are even more gun owners now than before Obama took office, add to that illegal criminals, ISIS and the stuff going on in Europe and there is absolutely no appetite in this country to lose our 2nd amendment rights. Sure there is a left fringe that wants massive gun controls, but the majority of this country simply doesn’t. So if the nominee turns out to favor gun confiscation then the public will support a senate rejection. If the nominee is moderate on guns, but pro-choice or pro gay marriage then the public won’t take well to a rejection on those grounds IMHO.

    Glenn Beck: God Allowed Scalia To Die In Order To Highlight The Importance Of Electing Ted Cruz

  14. Myiq2xu says:

    The reason that both Sanders and Trump are doing well is that the anger at the status quo is widespread.

    People on the left and right are pissed and want things to change. For too many years the party establishments (aka TPTB) have been using division and distraction to maintain their control on power.

    • piper says:

      We need to be careful as many can be fooled into trading one King for another King.
      The people in Russia rose up and got rid of one despot, the tsar, to live same life under another despotic regime, the new Soviets.

      As my Russian father used to tell us, we were cold and hungry under the tsar, and cold and hungry under the soviets.

      • jeffhas says:

        well – if you don’t take a chance, you can never know.

        Your father probably knew one thing for sure; what tomorrow would look like under the Tsar.

        Would they have been better off if they kept the Tsar rather then turning the Soviets? – probably not.

        … and I’d bet their only real choice to rescue them from the Tsar was the Soviets – no one else was really capable of taking the Tsar down.

        To me, this is where we are. Who could possibly rescue us from the establishment parties? Hillary? !Jeb!… Rubio? Cruz?(the new revealed Cruz – not the one sold to us before the primary)… come on, none of these guys is going to change ANYTHING. One thing we know pretty much FOR SURE is that if one of those guys wins, everything will pretty much stay the same as it has for the past 30 years…. (and another 30 million people will probably stop voting)

        Trump is the only possible disruptor – and I say ‘possible’ because no one knows if we will really do – or be able to do – what he says he’s going to do…. But I know ONE THING FOR SURE – no one else will be able to even get the chance to change anything meaningfully except Trump*

        That is Trump’s appeal. He is the ONLY shot.

        This is not Bush v. Gore or Bush v. Obama – this is the Establishment that has hoodwinked us for two generations, brainwashing our kids, mortgaging our futures, cronying away our money and resources, immigrating us into a watered down electorate with no more voice.

        This is it. Who else is capable of changing this situation? No one. Neither party has anyone in the pipeline. Anyone else who comes forward a la Trump will be killed in the crib before they can breathe.

        This is it. He ain’t perfect by a long shot, but he is the only shot we got.

        That’s how I’m seeing it now.

        *PS (I had/have hope for Cruz – and ‘maybe’ he could still change some things – but only incrementally)

        • taw46 says:

          Well said. That is how I feel. I know the others won’t change anything, based on what has happened in past years, especially the last seven. Trump may, so I also feel he is the last chance.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I started out solidly for Walker since was already sitting on a throne of skulls from what he survived in Wisconsin. I just don’t think it translated in this year of the outsider. Hope he runs for the Senate and comes back stormin’ in the future. The GOP has a very young and deep bench, but the establishment needs to be destroyed first for there to be a future for them. Enter The Destroyer, Trump. So I joined the #TrumpTrain after Walker dropped out. I want Trump to pick Cruz for VP, since I’m picking up hints their little “war” is all kabuki to throw the Dem scent off. Hillary started the Obama birther movement but I guess the race card trumped that😛 Yes, the Dems were planning that same attack on Cruz if he made it to the GE.

          Then again, wasn’t Uncle Joe’s pick for VP joked about being Obama’s insurance policy and why he couldn’t pick Hillary? Heh-heh, Clintonistas!

      • leslie says:

        It’s interesting I have acquaintances who came here from a couple of spots in the (then) USSR. They have complained about BHO ever since he ran for the Senate. But since becoming POTUS, these acquaintances are comparing him to what they left behind. Their lives were one time pretty good here. And by (their) Russian standards are still better than in Russia. But they have struggled with many aspects of life since BHO. their costs of living have increased as has the rest of ours, and they are seeing much of what they gained by moving here, dwindle. None of them (there are about 15 or these women) will vote for anyone else but Trump. They don’t trust any of the politicians who are running except for him. They won’t even consider a Democrat.
        (I know this is anecdotal (or is it empirical, Jadzia?) But it is a sign of these times.

        • taw46 says:

          I have read MANY accounts by people who left socialist/communist countries to come here, and they are horrified by what is happening in our country. It is becoming like the ones they left behind.

          • leslie says:

            That’s what I’m hearing as well.

          • Jadzia says:

            Here’s my anecdata on that point: douchebag college (boy)friend on FB, family defected from Czechoslovakia in the early 1980s, arrived in NYC with the shirts on their backs and enough money for a couple of Egg McMuffins, which they tried to eat using a fork. Fast forward 35 years and he’s a shrink in LA and lovin’ our current president. I don’t get it either.

          • Jadzia says:

            LA might just be an outlier because my husband’s ex-employers are a similar case that just popped into my mind–defected from Bulgaria in the late 1960s with nothing. Now they’re living in a gazillion dollar house in Laurel Canyon (purchased with all the extra money they make by hiring illegal immigrants and breaking every employment and tax law you can think of, which is pretty on point for the movie industry but still) and again, super big BHO fans.

          • Jadzia says:

            And now that I am thinking about this some more, I am remembering a LONG lecture I got in college from that DB boyfriend to the effect that if I knew the horrors of life in a socialist regime (he was about 8 when they left but okay), my Commie politics would be very, very different. What happened, dude?

          • taw46 says:

            In 1984 I made a trip through Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania. What I remember: no cars on the road, food hard to find, people not smiling, being swarmed by people when they found out we were from America. This did not surprise me, because I was born in 1946, all five of my uncles were in WWII, and schools taught us about Communism. These idiot little snowflakes do not have a clue as to what they are in for, if we continue on this path.

          • cynic says:

            When the presidential race for 2012 came along, I was manning the Republican headquarters. A couple came in on two occasions to pick up brochures so that they could hand them out to their friends. They had immigrated from Cuba, and they said that they were scared at what they saw happening to our country. They were trying to sound the alarm.

          • taw46 says:

            I had a work friend whose family immigrated from Lithuania (when it was still behind the Iron Curtain). He told me of his first trip to a supermarket, how he became weak and had to sit down, because of all the food available. They were basically starving in Soviet countries.

        • Jadzia says:

          Anecdotal, not to be confused with anecdata. : )

        • leslie says:

          I wonder if the difference is the type of living these women are engaged in – they are definitely not white collar workers. But they are work; two own their own beauty-related businesses and have had to work very hard here. They are finding they have to work even harder now. They have had to cancel health insurance due to ACA. One of them paid for their family coverage for a year and after 6 months the insurer (Blue Cross don’tcha know) cancelled the ACA coverage they had offered here in IL. Now she and her family have no coverage as she can’t afford current insurance and doesn’t qualify for subsidies under ACA. So she decided that she will pay out of pocket until she cannot. It is ugly and I think we have BHO and the people behind his *** to thank for it.

          • lyn says:

            Add the tax penalty for having no insurance to that!

          • leslie says:

            Right! We already discussed that and one of these women said she didn’t care. the penalty for the first year isn’t that much (she said) and it would be worth it to have her health issues addressed. Per her, the BC insurance wouldn’t cover her health problems anyway…. At least not to her liking. Yup, she’s already aware.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I take it you’re not Feeling the Bern😉 And Hillary’s running as Obama’s third term…..have you decided who to support on the GOP side yet? I really have no problem with any of them since any of them would be better than the past 7, and hopefully to survive the 8th. What I am supporting is the revolution, so to speak.

        My Italian grandparents escaped Mussolini and my Irish great- grandparents escaped the Potato Famine, thanks to them, here I am.

        More recently, my dd’s in-laws escaped a horrific Honduran crisis where the dad was a millionaire banker guy with everything confiscated and they escaped with the clothes on their backs type story, now living in Queens NYC. He works as a security guard at a local university and they are happy to be, all 4 of their kids got free education at the school. They also support Trump because they understand the meaning of ILLEGAL immigration, since they went through the proper channels, etc.

        Most special, my granddaughter is bi-lingual in Spanish/English. Super loving people. Though I usually f**k up my Spanglish on FB which the translator likes to say: Happy Birthday you look like a meatball. Sigh.

  18. leslie says:

    In the past few days, I’ve been hearing that with more competition Trump fares better. That’s why his numbers are high at this time. There are still so many people campaigning for the R nomination. The concern is that when winnowed down to just one other, he may not do as well. That may be true – or not.
    If there is an independent party (with Trump at the help) plus the usual party suspects in the GE, will that help or hurt Trump?
    Any thoughts on this?

    • taw46 says:

      That could be true. If one or two were to drop out, would he get their supporters. The Cruz and Rubio supporters seem to hate each other. Bush supporters would definitely not go to Trump. History shows us third parties usually don’t work. Who knows, everything is turned upside down this year. I worry more about what happens if the establishment keeps Trump and Sanders out, even if they both win majority of their delegates.

      • leslie says:

        I know… I have similar concerns about the estabs keeping the winners off GE ballots. On MSNBC this morning, they were starting to reference Warren again saying she could fill stadiums (unlike HRC who cannot).

        • cynic says:

          Mika looooves Elizabeth! It’s interesting that Warren is the only female Senator that hasn’t endorsed Hillary. She’s on record, in an old interview, of pointing out what a hypocrite Hillary was.

    • jeffhas says:

      I think Trump is a game changer BECAUSE he is running as an R. As an independent, both parties and the media will work overtime to make him irrelevant or to miss ballot deadlines in all states, etc…. Many voters in both parties will stick to their tribal party loyalty of some sort and his vote potential will be split.

      He is taking a chance of ‘change from within’ he is not just running for President, he is taking over the Republican Party – he is going to bring some (and he only needs some) of those 100 million voters that stopped voting (and maybe some other union/blue collar Dem types) to the Repubs and the Repub Party will stand a fighting chance against the Dem Party with their strategy of demoralizing the competition (you know the racists, homophobes, sexists and bigots).

      He will have half who he brings in PLUS about half the current Repubs that already hate the GOPe, and the other half will have no where else to go (why does that sound familiar to me?) and it couldn’t happen to a better group of sh*theads.

    • leslie says:

      Trump was talking about this yesterday. (or maybe it was this morning… everything’s been a blur for a couple of days. )

    This was around the time that Trump did that interview with the German reporter from Ground Zero where he was lending his help.

  21. jeffhas says:

    I think we’re seeing a Revolution… an honest to goodness Lincoln-is-a-Republican-then-Republicans-become-Democrats kinda Revolution.

    … and I’m honored and fascinated to be living in this time.

    Trump is about to take over the Republican Party – resuscitate it and give it a new chance to breath a great while longer…. AND the Dems (who have no future talent in the wings) are about to be thrown into the wilderness.

    Now, Trump could fail, and this could be a short-lived TRUMPublican Party by him not being able to do what he says – or by not actually having been serious – or he may have hosed us into thinking he was for real, etc.

    … but as I said previously, it just doesn’t look like there are any other alternative choices that could change the status quo…. and if he wins and he’s the real deal, unlike Obamacare; if you like your Status Quo, you won’t get to keep your Status Quo.

    These establishment parties are going to be changed.

  22. mothy67 says:

    I was listening yo Yeb! earlier and he accused Trump of wanting to make further cuts to the military. Does he not realize his lies are desperate?

      I don’t know if he realizes his lies are desperate. But I know other people – voters – do.

    • Somebody says:

      Someone over at MOTUS today said that Yeb is one of many forms of the F-bomb in Russian. So we’re all calling him Yeb like that’s his Hispanic name, because of immigration…….but if Putin calls him Yeb he’s calling him a fuck!

  25. jennifer lyn says:

    Couple of things….first, Scalia did not die of natural causes. I live in Texas and I fell OUT this morning reading The Chronicle (world’s worst newspaper). Front page story states, and I quote, the Texas Medical Examiner that pronounced Scalia dead of ‘natural causes’ did so over the phone. SHE NEVER SAW THE BODY. The article then went on to say that this type of ‘examination’ was totally legal. LEGAL SMEAGLE this is How can you determine that someone died of ‘natural causes’ over the phone not seeing the body or examining it? The owner of the ranch was quoted as saying that he did not say the pillow was ON his mouth just on his head because it was cold and Scalia was using a pillow on his head to warm himself. WHATTTTT? Once again, if Scalia was a black liberal supreme court justice who died in Texas BLM idiots would be burning my state down. I cannot believe that this is going to go unchecked. I cannot believe that people would rather watch TV then call for a federal investigation. Heads should be rolling.

    Second, Trump is going to win. I have been saying that since the first debate. He will win, he will be President and he will do a good job. It will be hard though and my guess is they will try to steal it from him but he is like a gator and he isn’t going to let go of this. He will be King. Watch out Obama because Kings sometimes have to behead their challengers🙂

    • lyn says:

      Did W complain about any of the Democrats during the 2008 primaries?

    • blowme0bama says:

      Well, he was 79 Years old. I agree it’s bullshitte to conclude natural causes without examination ( I think – maybe there was some history and description of his condition that would make such a determination legit? I dunno), but it’s not unusual for someone 79 years old to just have a MI and die.

    I despise her. Going after police saying no woman should go through what Sandra Bland did. Naming all the headline cases and saying no mother. What a ——! She fills my mouth with bile when I listen to her manipulative lies. Pandering. I would be so insulted if I was black.

      Everytime she mentions obama she acts like an abused woman. So gross. She is saying the kiler in Charleston bought his gun on line.
      Fucking liar the gun was a gift!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or did I miss something. She is lying and playing off a painful story. She mentions obama and guns one more time I am shooting my new 50″.

      Haha, she is pandering and pandering hard. The thing is she’s no good at it, in fact it’s probably about the only thing she’s transparent at. It is painfully obvious that she’s pandering. She’s trying to be Bill, but she just doesn’t have his mojo, never has. Hell he’s lost some of his mojo. Hillary has always been described as unauthentic, but lately she’s been taking it to a whole other level.

      You know something just occurred to me, one thing Hillary generally has been good at is debates. Hillary is the nerdy, policy wonk, whether you agree with her policies or not is another matter, so why hide the debates? I would think the debates were her only chance to sort of shine, on the stump has never been her strong suit.

    “Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has warned that the U.S. presidential election is turning into a ‘circus'”
    Of course, this administration turned this nation into a laboratory for social “justice” and a feeding ground for crazy. So “circus” is a mild term for what is going on. Perhaps if I were in Schultz’s position, I might think it amusing as well.

    So apparently Obama will not attend the Scalia funeral on Saturday,.My guess is it will interrupt a golf game or a talk show taping or a fundraiser for his retirement plans or some BLM entertainment.

    Why doesn’t anyone ever talk about the 2008 Democratic Convention and what really happened. Glen Beck, Fox News, anyone? Circus that was a circus with robber barons, Democratic Mafia, and more who-dun-its than Chicago ghetto.

    I wonder if the other S. C. Justices will now vote stupid (i.e. liberal and re-visionist) so they don’t end up dead…..

      I was soooooo naive in 2008 I thought the democratic party reflected the will of the people. I had grown up a D. Boy was I given a wake up call. Will it soon be offensive to say Oh boy! Oh girl would probably offend. What is the gender neutral term for a younger than teen person.

      There is video of Trump in the 80’s stating that he’s a republican, but there is also video of him from the 90’s saying he sides more with the d’s on social issues.

        There is a video of him at 1988 R convention. One of the other videos I watched, I think it was Tim Russert interview, he talks about growing up in NYC. I think the subject was gay marriage, he said he had lived in NYC all his life and had a different view than if he had lived in Iowa his whole life. His tone was not that one is more right than the other, but just a difference in life experiences.

    mothy. I feel like I was stupid almost brain dead before 2008 but this Scalia thing is pushing the limits of my mind.

    • mothy67 says:

      I can’t believe it is not SOP for a sitting judge on the Supreme Court to get an autopsy upon sudden death. How?

      • jeffhas says:

        Seriously!!! if you’re a sitting Supreme Court justice, any of the leaders in Congress (Majority, Minority, Whip, etc. – both parties, both houses), and President/VP/Cabinet members – you should ALL be getting an autopsy upon death while in office/serving…. and if you ask me it should be TWO autopsies, one from the State where the death occurred, and one from the FBI. It should be mandatory – like what Hillary signed before she decided to have her emails on a server – only it should really happen because the person is DEAD anyways.

        Not that we’re a tinfoil theory country, but just to quell ANY speculation later on down the road. People gotta be able to move on.

    Anyone else take note that obama did not say Trump will not be GOP nominee but instead said The Donald will not be president. Hmmmm?
    Says a lot. How much is he under everyone’s skin? Damn it now I have to listen to Sinatra.(Love Frank)
