Absolutely. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republicans MUST hold this line. Barack Obama CANNOT be allowed to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,” McConnell said, at a time when other elected officials, from Sen. Bernie Sanders to future Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, were releasing statements offering condolences to the justice’s family, which includes 26 grandchildren.
“It was a real shocker,” said a senior White House official, speaking to POLITICO shortly before Obama, on a trip to California, announced his intention to send the Senate a nominee, citing Scalia’s own wishes for him to do so.
The symbol of justice in America is a blindfolded figure holding a scale. The symbol of justice in America declares that justice is blind to prejudice and bias, and yet we all seem to view our Supreme Court, which court of all courts in the context of the liberal or conservative.
The death of Scalia is the most important event to happen in this country since the end of WWll.
His death means the end of freedom and the domination of the Marxist religion, and thus the return to the golden age of religion; the Dark Ages. Ignorance, poverty and slavery will be the order of the day in this country. And the rest of the world is on the same track. This is the reality of our situation for now and many, many years to come..
I BEG the Republican Senate 2 force a conservative replacement on Supreme Court for Justice #Scalia
Fight like you care about this country
