    Have a backup country or two you can go to if possible.

    There are videos of white racist terror groups out with guns being thanked by cops and ignored as they arrest people for being out past curfew... something being white racist with a gun doesn't preclude you from. Yet magically it does in this country...

    Scared of blm and antifa? Odd how the FBI notes white racist terrorists as the number 1 threat while people on the side of those white racist terrorist keep saying no it can't be... it is blm meanwhile blm isn't the one killing hundreds of people each year and ramping it up.

    BLM isn't sterilising women and killing children and throwing them in cages and spraying them with a chemical cleaner that causes lung damage. That is you and your party, you and your ilk, you and this country and the president you support. The president who thinks you, his supporter, are a disgusting person.

    That and a bunch of them think fucking gold digger trim is a good thing, I'd wager.

    Note: This comment has as much policy discussion as what you were replying to.

    Pointing out the hypocrisy just leads to the hypocrisy being pointed back at them. Both the Republicans and the Democrats have a history of citing or denying "Thurmond's Rule" whenever it happens to be convenient for them to do so. This time the Democrats are citing it and the Republicans are denying it...last time it was the reverse. Been that way for decades...will continue to be that way. Neither side can take a moral high ground on this issue.

    That being said, calling out Lindsay Graham in specific for this is entirely fair game...based on his own statements:

    'If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump´s term, and the primary process has started, we´ll wait to the next election', Graham said in 2018 at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine.
    Graham said then: 'If there´s a Republican president (elected) in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said, "Let´s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination".'

    I do not believe that being religious should disqualify anyone from a job.

    If you wear it on your sleeve and use it to shape law then yes, it should prevent you from being in the government. Keep it to your self.

    I really, really wish he had picked an independent for the court, but we are in 2020, so not much goes right now. The next several years will definitely be interesting, and not in a good way for many people if the wrong cases are brought before the supreme court.

    Separation of church and state. Simple as. You cannot use the laws of your own personal faith to determine the laws for a multi-faith nation.

    And therein lies the issue, hardline conservatives DO NOT WANT a multi-faith nation. They want it their way, like the 'good ole days'.

    Exactly. When the US was still a multi-religion state, just that the minorities knew their place.

    Trumps proven to be what we call here a Teflon politician, as in nothing really seems to stick at least that was the case in the last election.

    Every time something did seem to stick in a way that would swing the moderates something else would come along to make the opposition look bad and take the headlines.

    The republicans are probably banking on the same thing again, as such there making hay whilst the sun shines and what theve really always wanted to do if it wasn't for having to win some of the middle ground to take power. There probly hoping the rioting and stuff will keep going up to the election, possibly get worse and then they can ride the propaganda from that into the 2nd term rather than having to pander to the center by looking some what moderate.

    Thats my guess anyway

    If she had an ounce of integrity she'd decline the nomination. I'm surprised they let Handmaids occupy positions of authority. Biden should nullify her nomination and stack the fuck out of the court.

    Not really. He’s anything but a Teflon politician. Everything he’s accused of DOES stick. But here’s the issue in the modern world. a) the news cycle is so quick and his misdemeanours so many, that they just get superseded by the next and b) his voting base is the only group of people alongside the GOP that just does not care what he does. All they want is power. His criminality is irrelevant. So it’s not the same as being a Teflon politician. This is a case of ‘we don’t care if he kills his wife tomorrow, he keeps us powerful’. That’s just corruption.

    She is batshit insane, and NO ONE should pick this spot. Until after the inauguration of Biden or if Trump wins the election.

    Depends... the UN has been sounding the alarm for some time now and more so lately and immigration and refugee lawyers see no reason why black or Latino Americans can't claim asylum. One example is that Roma people in Hungary are often awarded asylum in Europe and Canada with the reason being... in their country, the police target them, abuse them, give them dispropriate jail sentences. When they are killed there often is little to no followup, and wrongful deaths aren't investigated and when there is an investigation it is usually scant and the outcome is.... nothing.

    Independents don't exist anymore in the US. At least not at a level where you hold a law degree.

    Today American political alignments essentially break down as such, fascists and not fascists.

    Some people are so damn clueless that they don't actually realize the GOP shifted to full fascism years ago, but that degree of cluelessness is not something your average judge could ever hold.

    So if you are not nominating a right wing rubber stamp lunatic you are essentially nominating a liberal.

    I was reading today, that she thinks all civil rights laws should be abolished.

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/202...s-illegitimate

    It is the Daily Kos, but they have some legitimate concern, she thinks the 14th amendment is of "legitimate concern".

    She writes bout it in this 44 page report called "Congressional Originalism".

    This is why this bitch shouldn't be nominated AT ALL. She shouldn't be on ANY fucking bench right now.
