THE COURT IS SPLIT 4-4
Justice Thomas, Justice Roberts, Justice Breyer, Justice Ruth Ginsburg, Justice Kennedy, Justice Kagan, Justice Alito, Justice Sotomayor, Justice Scalia
This is a very serious matter.
It presents a precarious situation where the fabric of American Democracy may be up-ended.
The three branches of government are:
As it stands, the wheels of Democracy may stop working properly, as the “Founding Fathers” intended, if the court vacancy isn’t filled soon.
There is “right” in this country. There is “wrong” in this country.
Throwing a wrench in the wheels of the checks and balances by which this country rules itself, its citizens and its procedures is simply wrong.
President Omaba still has 341 days in office.
He IS the president of the United States whether some like it and others don’t.
Not allowing him to carry the functions of his office is wrong.
It will be a huge stain in the history of this country, an unprecedented event, if the Republican controlled Congress carries on the threat emitted within two hours of Justice Scallia’s passing.
This isn’t honorable.
This is plain and simple: WRONG!
How Scalia’s death could upend America
By Erwin Chemerinsky
As the nation is stunned by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, the immediate question is what it will mean for the Supreme Court this year and in the future.
The court has an unusually large number of cases before it this term on controversial issues: abortion, affirmative action, the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act, the First Amendment rights of non-union members, immigration and voting districting.
The long-established procedure is that for a justice to participate in a ruling, he or she must be on the bench at the time the decision is handed down. Justice Scalia’s vote, therefore, will not be counted in any case this year that has not already been issued. Obviously, in any case where there is a majority without him, the decision still will be forthcoming.

No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
But there may be a number of 4-4 ties without his vote.
