    Would Kavanaugh have gotten confirmed to SCOTUS with the current Congress?

    Yes or no?

    Ginsberg can drop any second now, could we get another Kavanaugh in there?

    It would be even more likely now.

    The Republicans increased their Senate majority and the House has no say in who is nominated by the President. They are not part of the decision making process.

    Yea that is done by the Senate. That is why the Senate was more important to R's.

    Seriously, can you imagine three Trump nominations? His name will live in progressive Democrat infamy for eons.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Kavanaugh was confirmed with the current Senate. Did you mean the next Senate?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Consider this: Thomas has indicated he'd like to retire. Now would be a good time. He would be replaced a by a younger Conservative. Then, the old lady drops dead. All in his first term.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
