For John, BLUF: We have trust issues between our two major political parties. Neither believes the other won't go totally wacko at the first opportunity. We are settling into a Bismarck-like Culture War, and that is not good. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
From The American Thinker, by Mr Fletch Daniels, 27 August 2019.
Here is the lede plus three:
The news that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was treated for pancreatic cancer raised the possibility of a Supreme Court opening within the next year.It goes down hill from there.
The 86-year-old Ginsburg's health has been declining for years, to where the last year has felt like a bad remake of the 1989 Weekend at Bernie's movie. Instead of enjoying her golden years in retirement, Ginsburg has been propped up and hidden in the hopes of holding the seat until a Democrat is elected.
The always elegant Michael Moore, who previously placed a Ginsburg doll atop a Christmas tree, summed up the Democrat zeitgeist when he tweeted, "HOLYMOTHEROFRBG!! EVERYBODY, RIGHT THIS SECOND, JOIN A MOVEMENT, CAMPAIGN, GRASS ROOTS GROUP -WHATEVER - AND WORK NONSTOP BTWN RIGHT NOW & NOV 2020!"
The Left is already manning the barricades. The resulting hearing will make the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco, a dark moment in U.S. history, look like a charming affair. In the event that President Donald Trump nominates Amy Coney Barrett, as many conservatives hope, this hearing will be a preview of the Apocalypse.
As for Professor Amy Coney Barrett! I can't think of a better choice. Yes, I find her association with the People of Praise Community as a positive thing. Two of our very close friends from Naples, Italy, joined an affiliated Covenanted Community in Ann Arbor, Michigan, when he got out of the Navy.
To wrap up, I wish Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg the very best, including a continued long life.
