President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice

It’s going to be a woman.

President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.

Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.

President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.

Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.

Biden’s White House Considering Banning Conservative Media from Press Briefings

Briefings could be restricted to mainstream media?

Published

President Joe Biden’s press team may move to restrict the briefings held at the White House to liberal mainstream media outlets, if language from the new President’s deputy press secretary if more than just talk.

Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated,” TJ Ducklo, Biden’s deputy press secretary, said in a statement to Politico, “and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.

Given liberal media figures’ extremely wide-ranging definition of “disinformation,” it appears possible to likely that any journalist or reporter who is critical of Biden policies “will not be tolerated” at the White House.

President Trump had accredited journalists from outlets such as Breitbart and One America News Network during his time in office, and Ducklo’s language suggests the press credentials of such organizations may be revoked. Biden himself has chafed over questions regarding his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings, calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “one horse pony” for daring to ask about an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into Hunter Biden.

The first press briefing of the Biden administration was attended by fourteen mainstream media employees, in a limited-capacity briefing spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. Room service journalists questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the color scheme of Air Force One and Biden’s mood on Inauguration Day.

Former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer described the ‘easy mode’ briefing as “an embarrassment.” Spicer is currently seeking press credentials to attend White House briefings, along with Fox host Eric Bolling.

Expect the remaining “journalists” present for White House press briefings to ask vital questions about dogs, chocolate chip ice cream, and softball slam dunks for the Biden administration.
