Warning as Incitement

I saw a headline on Drudge.  Just the headline: “Axelrod warns Supreme Court vacancy would ‘tear country apart’…”

This is in response to breaking news that Ginsburg is going in for more cancer treatment.  Sooo, the flying monkeys are getting their orders to riot from Axelrod now.

  1. It sounds like extortion to me.

    “Nice place you got here; it would be a shame if anything bad were to happen to it.  I heard you were thinking of contracting with the competition; you know, bad things happened to the last guy who contracted with those guys.”

  2. Desperation sets in. Calls to riot happened in 1968.  The voters did not care for it. The fact that the riot leaders are now running the universities allows them to think it was the right move.

    If you want to scare squishy middles, promise violence in their streets.

  3. Take the phrase “tear this country apart” seriously but not literally.  Think of the Kavenaugh hearings without the polite restraint, not civil war. This goes double for everyone who have had bad reactions to people over-literalizing Trump!

    “If there is a SCOTUS vacancy next year and @senatemajldr carries through on his extraordinary promise to fill it-despite his own previous precedent in blocking Garland-it will tear this country apart,”

  4. Trump has me on speed dial when the time to nominate comes. The confirmation is going to be like watching a cat play with a ball of yarn. And once confirmed, I will be there forever. I’m only 40!

    We look forward to the enduring wisdom of the McReynolds Era.  And you can tell your fellow justices to post their decisions here first and change deliberations to a podcast, the possibilities are endless!

    Nah, I like the old way of things. Besides, if I am successful in bringing the court more in line with its original role, there won’t be very many cases before the court.

  7. On the other hand I could make all my opinions Private here forcing the others to join Ratburger to read them. I actually like that. It will make those tools on the other site so jealous.

    You wouldn’t be the youngest ever, because Joseph Story was appointed at 32.

    JP Stevens was in the Navy prior to law school, so no first there.

    First to have failed the bar? Could be. The Cardozo myth was due to his going to law school at 15 but having to wait until 21 to apply to the NY Bar. The delay was mistaken for exam failure.

    Couple of others. I wouldn’t be the first McReynolds. I also would not be the first Catholic, obviously. But I think I would be the first Texan.

    Well damn. At least this Texan will not have disgraced himself by dying in New York City.

    Well, at least Drudge is keeping things in perspective.  Above the fold, at this moment, is:

    LESBIAN CROOK IN SPACE!

    Great, another “first” for the US space program. NASA should have sent them both up for the first cat fight in space. And if they kissed and made up … well if Ed Wood were still alive he’d have the plot for his next low budget SciFi adventure: Plan 69 from Outer Space!

    This. One hoped for side-effect of the likes of AOC rising in the ranks is the revulsion from normal people at her Stalinism-lite. We should always hope for enemies that advertise what they want to do to us.

  14. I was wondering about the Garland thing.  That was different: we knew Hussein’s presidency was over.  With Trump as 2020 approaches, he may (he will!) win again.  Since he’s running, the country oughta know  before the election whom he’ll appoint.

    Tough noogies Axelrod,!  What is the point of that Tweet.: RBG don’t you dare die?  This is the way our system works, always has.  If Trump  has the good fortune to get to fill another sear, well, good for us, bad for Them.  Suck it up!
