- is it easy to add judges to the USSC?

Procedure-wise, yes. Politically a little bit hairy.

fdr threatened to do it to get the new deal approved.

I will always believe that dumbas meeting with roberts was very much is the same line (but since that belief is unproven, it must qualify as a conspiracy theory ... just like the tarmac story).

Using the senatorial advise and consent requirement … it COULD happen.  Not sure how the public would react.

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



I disagree.   I think the next candidate put up by the Trump misadministration will be vetted all the way back to grammar school.

Donald Trump saved us from having Hillary Clinton and the Democrats selecting 2 liberal activists justices to the SC...if he gets to select one more while Republicans still have the Senate he will officially be my hero!

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.


Third, if Trump names 3 or more justices to the Court, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see Republicans abandon him in a "my work is done here" rout.  It will be very hard to argue a "hold your nose and vote Trump" scenario for more judges in 2020 when you've already got most of them.

As long as Row v Wade is retained, I could care less who gets put on the SCOTUS.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has no remaining signs of cancer after her surgery last month, requires no additional treatment, but will miss oral arguments at the court next week to rest, the Supreme Court said Friday.

While odds for a recovery from the surgery she had are good, they go way up if the subsequent pathology report shows no cancer in the lymph nodes. On Friday, the court released a written statement saying there is no additional evidence of cancer.

"Her recovery from surgery is on track," court spokeswoman Kathleen L. Arberg said of the 85-year-old justice. "Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required."

Because the left/she has NOOOOOO reason to lie about it.
  

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

Totally. Obviously. Yet I do not see admin saying a thing. Could it be because he/she agrees?
