The Late Justice Ginsburg, a Vote to Replace before Election, and Trump's list of SCOTUS Nominee

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may she rest in peace.

HAIL MARY, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and in the hour of our death. Amen.

AVE MARIA, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Justice Ginsburg past away yesterday, September 18th, at the age of 87 due to complications from her battle with "metastatic pancreas cancer," as divulged by the Supreme Court. We can only hope and pray that she repented for the legal, temporal, and spiritual transgressions committed against God and the people of good will in the United States. Although a lifelong public servant, Justice Ginsburg voted on several occasions to suppress religious freedom, as she recently did in Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley v. Sisolak (2020), to promote unbiological and irreligious same-sex marriage, as she did Obergefell v. Hodges (2015), and to uphold the culture of death by abortions, as she did Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt (2016), that has claimed over 60 milllion murdered babies since Roe v. Wade (1973).

We are 45 days until the General Election on November 3rd, so the timing of the occurrence could not have been more providential. So, where do we go from here?

The left is quickly gearing up for a new angle and platform to attack the President and his reelection campaign. Knowing that the Supreme Court was a major issue and motivator for republicans to mobilize and vote for Donald Trump in 2016, shouldn't sit well with the democrat leadership in 2020.

The COVID-19 narrative may take a backseat and the mudslinging will intensify. Activists and supporters on the left are already adding fuel to the election fire, making statements about increasing protests and riots in light of the vacant seat in the Supreme Court.

Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and the dozens of federal judges, stand testament for the American mandate that put President Trump in the White House. It will also be the same mandate that will lead the U.S. Senate to confirm a new Associate Justice before the election.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, stated that the senate is prepared to bring the nomination pick from President Trump to a vote:
