An Open seat back at twenty sixteen when Scalia died. and. He put up a nominee. The Senate, which is held by the Republicans decided they were not going to take it up. Back at that time I was having constitutional conversations a with our sin say Jeff Touch. And he put out a dire warning. I wanted to bring Jeff. into the center ring of the Conservative, Circus of course, we do the constitutional conversation. It is a podcast you can listen to it. If you download the free iheartradio APP and I want to say Jeffey, you called it a few years ago and said we will one day regret not seating Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court bench now dims are using him as a reason not to see president trump's appointee. How does it feel to have been proven? Well. James T remember the Merrick Garland I said it is gonNA come back to bite us in the biggest reason was it wasn't Caught the correct way back then the narrative was look in an election year. Let's just wait until the election happens in the next president can decide and it was explained differently instead if our leaders in the Senate would have explained, look it is the norm in American history that it's the executive, the president and the Senate or controlled that you can push through a nominee at any time but if if the Senate and president or of opposite parties then The norm is to wait, but that wasn't the narrative James Teeth narrative coming out and what people remember is purely the message of, Hey, you know this the norm and it's not it wasn't the norm it depends on you know which parties are in control and win the nomination is Ford. So we did not educate well, and because of that I did say it would come back. And Bite us and it is right now we'll I tell you what you're absolutely right about that and we talk about this. Often we talk about we asked the question how come our elected officials don't you know used the constitution drawn? Don't even you know quoted a chapter and verse as the explained their actions and that's because politics has taken over to the point where we're. Doing things now, that may be unconstitutional, but we think we have the moral authority to do it, and then somebody will bring up the constitution and then well now it's a precedence. So but this, but this was only four years ago. So I wouldn't say necessarily that it is a president does what happened with with Garland? Really matter I mean the law is clear. Isn't it Jeff? It is let's get it very clear. The the president has the authority up. Until his last day you know to make nomination for the Supreme Court? The Senate now could confirm that nomination or they could wait until they were in a lame duck session that is really up to them all the way back when Washington was our president let's see how things have changed so much when he was president James, t he really thought it was up to the president to set the time and place to where the Senate would give advice and consent that has really changed where the Senate. Has Control that's been standing, but we see how things change over time James. G. So I do I do think that the president trump should nominate somebody I, do think it should go to the Senate but we need understand with eyes wide open change t what the risks are and how this can be spun. We already know the left creates false narratives and makes hay out of that like black lives matters like the sixteen nineteen project, all these things you give them a little sliver of truth boy they can start to make hay quite a bit Jeff, which is an instructor at the. At the leadership and Freedom Center in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. He's also our constitutional sense. Say Jeff last week we did a podcast on sixteen nineteen. I'm just going to divert for a second here we did a podcast on it not knowing that president trump was going to come out with the seventeen seventy six initiative and I say once again here we are editor curve would information out there about the founding about the constitution and to President Trump's credit he is hitting it out of the park I just say that because I want you guys to download a that Conversation that we had a download, the free iheartradio APP and listen to the constitutional conversation on sixteen nineteen. Let me ask you Jeff Ruth Bader GINSBURG was opposed to stacking the court, and this is one of the things that Democrats have threatened. They say if you go ahead with this nominee against the wishes of the dying Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are going to stack this court. We're GONNA put eleven justices on make sure that they're all from the left of them's are still threatening to do it what are the consequences if they if they were to succeed? Well I think they could be dire james t but I think it goes to to de legitimize the court, and this is why we will. We will do a podcast on the pros and cons of the marriage garland decision, and also this decision to go forward because we do want to judge conservative judge on the court but the con is is art conservative judges we appoint don't always pan out do that they sure don't. They surely don't. Well and so you know we need more conservative judges. It is constitutional elections have consequences, James E, and we certainly should use the power of the presidency in the Senate to move forward. But as we do so you know this is going to ratchet up this election, James T and the chances for chaos spin and mayhem or increased, and that's why the Senate needs to get in front of this and really explain the history of how the Supreme Court justices are nominated during an election year and not come out with what they did with Garland but really get to the point and say this is how it's done. If you have an executive in Senate in the same party, you push it through and if not, Hey, the Senate has power to block it and there you go. But I don't think that. was explained very well, and because of that I think a just ratchets up the tension for the next couple of months or meal most cash offer companies who pay cash for homes have stopped providing cash offers. So if you need a cash offer on your home and need a quick sale call Carol Royse right now Carol Royse with Keller Williams Realty East Valley Your valley-wide team is still offering great cash offers to homeowners who need them don't hesitate call Carol Royse Right now at eight Oh, seven, seven, six, fifty to thirty one or go to Carol has the cash offers dot com that's carol has the cash offers dot com.
