What results in the 2020 Senate Elections?

If something that happened hadn’t, things would have been different.

In other news, water is wet.

My cautious prediction for next week, Trump wins, senate Republicans pick up a few seats but Dems keep the house and nothing really changed over the next 4 years.

47 against, that’s pretty obscene and expected.

I wouldn’t call it obscene…its merely political. What I would call obscene are the democrat portrayals of ACB’s nomination and confirmation. Biden called it unconstitutional, other’s called it a “power grab”. This kind of language appeals to an uninformed electorate who do not know this was entirely constitutional.

I think it is obscene though; Look how partisan this is.

I’m sure one of the most liberal members ever on SCOTUS is Elena Kagan:

On May 10, 2010, President Barack Obama announced his selection of Elena Kagan for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. Kagan’s nomination was confirmed by a 63–37 vote of the United States Senate on August 5, 2010.

How about Sotomayor?

A bit more divided but still some “Yea” votes.

Straight-forward, this kind of voting can easily appear as downright bigotry.

Good thing Mitch got rid of the 60-vote threshold for SC Justices and singlehandedly eliminated Garland.

Former Democratic Party Senate leader Harry Reid was the one who eliminated the 60-vote threshold for Federal Judicial appointments.

In a sense M.Mitch WAS and IS in the position to throw the spanner into the works and became a dictator of the judicial process. Hopefully in a week that will change.

Mitch didn’t do that. Chuck Schumer did.

The democrats are against everything the Republican is for.
Let’s ask Adam Schiff what his view is. This summaries the AOC and the other 3.

Excellent points. Several Republicans voted in favor of leftists Kagan and Sotomayor.

The 47 - 0 vote against Amy Coney Barrett confirms, once again, that there is no such thins as a “moderate” Democrat Senator. So, the next time the media tries to portray a Democratic Party Senatorial candidate as a “moderate”, we can keep in mind votes like 47 - 0 against confirming Amy Coney Barrett. Not even one Democrat had the courage to stand on their own.

Trump summed it up in the debate:

Elections have consequences.

If the liberal blow-hards owned the Whitehouse, they would most certainly have done the same thing.

Nonsense. He acted in accordance with his duties and authorities as specified in the Constitution.

Well, not really. The Constitution says nothing about having ONE person with the power to allow or disallow even the debate and deliberation of an SC nominee. Just like it is silent about the number of SC justices. :slight_smile:

But I am curious, what will you say if (and hopefully when) the Democrats will get into the position to extend the Court with freedom loving, aka liberal justices who will re-establish the concept of a woman having dominion over the her own body.

I am most disappointed that freedom, aka. liberty became almost cuss-words.

I really think you need to go back to civics class. The SCOTUS does not make laws - Congress passes bills that when signed by the president become laws. The purpose of the SCOTUS is to rule on whether those laws are in accordance with the Constitution.

The left’s fear with ACB is because Roe v Wade is bad law, and won’t survive scrutiny when viewed in light of what the Constitution actually says.

It’s sad that people actually hope for justices who will not perform their duty (to review laws in light of the Constitution).

Tell that to the millions of people who were murdered because of the bad law that is Roe v Wade.

That is your opinion, shared by some people.

Shared by a lot of realistic democrats too, from their response to ACBs nomination and now appointment.

Once again, when the democrats don’t get their way they act like spoiled children!
