The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg presents the opportunity of a lifetime to shift the balance of the Supreme Court. Despite what the media will almost always insist, there are not five conservatives on the Supreme Court. In fact, I would only count Alito and Thomas as conservatives. Gorsuch has proven not to be a conservative on the bench in his first three years, and Kavanaugh is perhaps an improvement from Kennedy but nowhere near Alito. And if John Roberts betrays us on every issue of significance, how can it be said he is one of us. Previously, the court was four Leftists, three swing votes, and two solid conservatives. Now the communists on the Supreme Court are reduced to three with their intellectual heavyweight gone. President Trump is left with a predicament. He must choose between political expedience or political decorum. And with the nation in the midst of a cold civil war, the choice could not be clearer. Fill the seat. And do so before the election.
This election could go down a number of ways and shenanigans and Tomfoolery are to be expected with the chaos of mail-in ballots. This election, like 2000, could be decided by the Supreme Court and a gridlocked decision would leave the appellate ruling in place. The next president is not something to gamble on an appellate court ruling should it come to that.
But, as I stated before, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to shift the balance of the Supreme Court, one we have not had in several decades. Not only is it imperative to replace the intellectual heavyweight of our adversaries, but it is most necessary and beneficial to do so prior to the election.
We are losing the fight for the soul of our country and fake conservatives like David “Vichy” French and Jonah Goldberg argue that we should take a knee on 1st and goal instead of driving the ball in for a touchdown. This idea of negotiating against yourself could be a generational blunder.
In 2016, Republicans were stupid in claiming we should not confirm Merrick Garland in an election year, when the reality is that we should not be allowing Antonin Scalia be replaced with a Marxist. But Lindsay Graham, I suppose, needed to appeal to some nonsense to cover up the fact he would have voted to confirm Merrick Garland just as he had Obama’s other two Justices. But Republicans should confirm Trump’s nominee before the election precisely because of the election.
The consultant class of Republicans will argue that we need to dangle the nominee like a carrot to drive turnout. But this is obvious manipulation. It’s clear Trump’s base wants the replacement confirmed ASAP. 2016, like 2012 and 2008 were base election. Trump turned out his base and Hillary Clinton did not. If Trump wants to turn out his base, score big by replacing their idol with a conservative.
I should not have to remind anyone that Trump is an incumbent. He cannot simply run on promises. He must run on accomplishments. And to date, there have been too few for my liking. The wall is in progress, but Obamacare remains. The swamp needs massive draining, which includes handcuffs. And I am not enamored with Trump’s two SCOTUS appointees; neutering John Robert’s ability to be the swing vote on the highest court in the land will solidify Trump’s legacy and service to our cause.
Many conservatives reluctantly voted for Trump to ensure Scalia and any other justice would be replaced with someone who revered the Constitution. We knew the possibility of Trump being able to appoint three or four to the Supreme Court in his first term. Now, we finally have an open slot to shift the balance of the court in our favor. This is more imperative than the election. The Prime Directive of our cause is to save our country. And so with Vulcan shrewdness we must fill this vacancy. And the irony is this will not come at a great cost, Trump can campaign on his SCOTUS appointees and Americans his base will turn out ecstatic on election day.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
