We’re six weeks away from election day and the political tension has increased due to the unexpected vacancy on the Supreme Court due to the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The heightened tension shows as statements have come out desiring to do whatever it takes to stop President Trump, including new impeachment proceedings against him.

Earlier today it was announced that the votes are there to pass the president’s nominee.  He will reveal his choice this Saturday.

Joining Jim to cover this issue was Mat Staver.  Mat is a constitutional attorney, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. Mat has argued before all levels of court including landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.  He’s an author as well as the speaker on the radio programs, Faith and Freedom and Freedom’s Call.

Early discussion dealt with Mat’s appearance yesterday before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (via Zoom) concerning Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry in California.  For 80% of the state, California bans all worship including home Bible studies and fellowship.

Although the Supreme Court vacancy is occurring at this late stage of his term, President Trump is calling upon the Senate to fill it.  Ginsburg, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Tim Kaine have made past statements that would seem to support this idea.  President Obama did his job by nominating Merrick Garland while the Senate did their job by refusing to advance him.  Why are Democrats opposed to this process now that President Trump is in the White House?   

This is the basis for this program that also looks at ‘advise and consent’ within the constitution, if judiciary hearings will be necessary, how the Democrats might react to President Trump filling the vacancy, comments from listeners and much more.
