7/1/2017: Justice Ginsburg Retires, Patricia Ann Millett Confirmed 53-47



Wikimedia Commons

Liberal Icon Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the notorious RBG announced that she would retire in late May of 2017, giving President Bernie Sanders, his second Judicial appointment to the Supreme Court. Progressive Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit  Patricia Ann Millett was Confirmed by the Democratic-controlled Senate in a 53-47 vote. Every Democrat voted for Garland, and were joined by 2 Republicans, Sen. Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Murkowski (R-AK). Other Republicans including Sen. Flake (R-AZ), Sen. Corker (R-TN) and Sen. Capito (R-WV) praised Millett and "flirted" with voting in favor of her nomination, but in the end decided not to.

Progressive Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke - VOTED YAE:
"This is a great victory for our nation! Judge Millett, now Justice Millett will do a great job on the Supreme Court. She will protect our rights and will push the court in a progressive direction. I am proud and want to thank President Sanders!"

Conservative Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) spoke - VOTED NAY:
"This is an absolute disgrace. Judge Millett is a progressive and liberal Democrat. She will push a liberal agenda and will do a terrible job on the nation's highest court. This is another power grab by the Democrats and socialist President Sanders. They are trying to take our great country away from us, which will not be tolerated!"

Did Sanders resign before or after Phil Scott taking office?
Sorry, for the late response! Sanders resigns before Phil Scott takes office in late December, and Vermont Lame Duck Governor Shumlin appoints Jane Kitchel, as a placeholder pick. This move is very unpopular among Vermonters.

Wow, looks like Bernie will be able to the first president since Reagan to get three justices through in two years.

8/11/17 - 8/12/17: Charlottesville Protests



Wikimedia Commons

Neo-Nazis and far right activists in Charlottesville, Virginia marched on August 11th and August 12th, 2017. "Jews will not replace us," was chanted by those Neo-Nazis. Protests broke out against them, who were against the rally and were against them. 7 people died, all protesters against the Neo-Nazis. Members of the KKK and other far right groups were at the rallies and chanted other remarks, that are incendiary and cruel. 2016 Republican Presidential Nominee, Businessman Donald Trump tweeted remarks questioning the protesters, who were there in response to the Neo-Nazis. Trump caused a lot of controversy and many of his tweets were flagged on twitter.

President Bernie Sanders (I-VT) scheduled an emergency press conference about this. President Sanders spoke: "this today was disgusting. Those Neo-Nazis are evil and my administration will condemn this act of evil violence by those people. 7 innocent patriotic Americans were murdered. As a nation, we need to unite and stand together against violence, Anti-Semitism, White Supremacy, and all acts of hatred. Social Media and twitter has exploded with anger. We need to calm down as a country and not allow ourselves to get like this. This is not alright, and will not be tolerated."
