Trump White House urging allies to prepare for possible RBG departure

Quote:
The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible death or departure from the Supreme Court — an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump’s tenure.

The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. The justice, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, announced in late December that she underwent a surgical procedure to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs.




.


.
The White House "is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process," said a source familiar with those conversations, who spoke on background given the delicate nature of the subject. "They're doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren't caught flat-footed."


Oh, if she would only just die...
  

Because it's just a clever, pithy saying based on comedy show talking points shortcutting logic and reason and making the issue worse. ~ Queshank

First, that's ghoulish.

Second, if Trump gets to name 3 or more justices to the Court, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see the Democrats raise the number of justices from 9 to 11 or 13 the first time they get control of all the House, Senate and Presidency again.

Exactly how much more gas does she have left in her broom? You'd think she's running on fumes by now.

Get her out of there, and put in a conservative judge who isn't about activism.

A dominant Supreme Court would make Trump's presidency - his mistakes and all - very worthwhile.

The Kavanaugh hearings will be nothing compared to the next one.

You got that right.

But if the pundits are correct ... the next nominee would be female (a coincidence in this case).  But if it happened to be a male, the first battle cry would be that g's seat "belongs" to a woman.  What will the me too crowd have to say about guys claiming to have jumped her bones?

Oh yes, the politics will be alive and well.  A female appointee will on get sex questions from dim broads.  The males dims will focus on her wardrobe expenses.

- the Democrats will be nutty trying to stop the next pick but with Republicans having 53 seats they may seem defeated and not really put up a fight like the last one - plus its already a conservative majority - Democrats know they lost

Looking forward to seeing the two harpies (Hirono and Harris) at their very worst and Sheldon Whitehouse  go on about 40 year old farts.

- when will Breyer retire - it may make sense for Thomas to retire to pick someone younger next year if he doesn't intend to stay 10+ years
