Will RGB be replaced by a white conservative male?

Will RGB be replaced by a white conservative male?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died, and the Republicans better not try to replace her with Ted Cruz. Cruz has claimed that he doesn’t want the job, though. Hopefully that is not false modesty. It might be that Cruz was mentioned simply to keep the focus off the nominee that Trump truly wants.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is seen in Washington in 2013. She was the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

“I want to be in the political fight,” Cruz explained. “I want to be fighting to nominate and confirm three, four, five principled constitutionalist justices, but that’s not where I want to serve. I want to stay fighting right where I am in the US Senate.”

Ted Cruz

We all know that Ted Cruz’s big dream is to become President. Unfortunately, he was born in Canada, and that seems to be a problem for him, especially with all the Republican reliance on ‘birther’ narratives.

There are still PLENTY of other Trump sycophants that are lined up for the job. Perhaps the most notorious is Senator Tom Cotton. Cotton is all about overturning Roe v. Wade, protecting gun rights, and sticking it to China. OH! and torture. Tom Cotton came out as pro-torture in 2016. Trump doesn’t actually care about those things, but he panders to those who do.

Trump has been trying to get Tom Cotton a job for years. First it was CIA Director, but then Trump got a better idea. Will a nomination to the SCOTUS be the ticket?

Interesting choice?

Senator Tom Cotton has not been so humble. Instead, he has eagerly suggested that he: “will always heed the call of service to the nation”. That’s is not all, Tom Cotton has made it clear that he wants Roe v. Wade overturned.

Oh yes, all Cotton’s dreams are about to come true.

The main problem with these nominations is that that nominees should be intellectuals that are well-educated in constitutional law, and have a background working in constitutional law. Nominees are not supposed to be chosen for their willingness to act as sycophants for politicians. They are not supposed to make decisions based on the political ideology du jour.

Remember when everyone was mad that Justice John Roberts did not vote to end DACA? Some Republicans thought that Justice Roberts had double crossed them.

Supreme court Justices are expected to rule based on their convictions that are based on the interpretation of law. They are not there to make sure the Executive Branch gets to do whatever they want.

Behind closed doors, it would not be surprising if Trump had asked if he could nominate Judge Jeanine. Um. Yeah. She probably wouldn’t do any more damage than Tom Cotton would.
