Celebrities demand justice amid fight to fill

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat: ‘This is war’

A number of Hollywood stars are speaking out in defense of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s reported last wish,

to not be replaced until after the 2020 presidential election.

Ginsburg died Friday at the age of 87 from complications surrounding metastatic cancer of the pancreas.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,”

Ginsburg told her granddaughter just days before her death, according to NPR.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee,

To fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

This has since raised a number of arguments from the right and left,

In addition to a handful of A-listers who took to their Twitter accounts late Friday into Saturday morning to voice their opinions.

Director Rob Reiner, who is rarely shy about voicing his opinions about Trump and his administration,

Tweeted early Saturday declaring the controversy has created a “war.

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave.

This is war.

Dems have powerful weapons.

Now is the time to use them,” the 73-year-old wrote.

Many celebrities directly tweeted McConnell following Ginsburg’s death.

His comments on Friday led Democrats to accuse him of hypocrisy due to his treatment of D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Merrick Garland,

Who former President Barack Obama nominated to the Supreme Court to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.

McConnell and his Senate majority refused to hold a hearing or vote on Merrick’s nomination because of the 2016 presidential election.

“Remember what @senatemajldr did when President @BarackObama wanted to make his Supreme Court appointment during an election year.

He said no new SCOTUS appointments. The same should apply to @realDonaldTrump. Remember your words @senatemajldr,” Shriver tweeted.

Similarly, Bette Midler argued it’s time to mourn the gaping hole Ginsburg has left in the country,

And called for politicians to hold off on filling her vacant seat.

“We should take the time to mourn the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a legal giant,

A defender of the defenseless, and an American hero.

But we should also celebrate and honor her life by following her example. 

At almost every stage of her career, she was rejected, dismissed, and impeded by those threatened by a woman of valor, integrity, and intellect.

She made an immeasurable contribution to America by refusing to give up, even when the odds seemed hopeless,” Midler wrote.

She concluded: “Do not despair. Follow RGB’s example. Persist. Resist.

Do not give up hope, even when the odds seem hopeless.

Politics can—and should—wait. For now, let’s celebrate her life.

For the next forty-six days, let’s be Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The rest is detail.”

Meanwhile, actress Elizabeth Perkins took her aim directly at McConnell’s statement released Friday, writing in response on Twitter, “F–k you.”

Chelsea Handler simply quoted McConnell to make her argument clear.

“In the words of Mitch McConnell in 2016, ‘The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice.

Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,'” she tweeted.

Mandy Moore also sounded off in reaction to McConnell’s statement on Friday.

“Mitch McConnell is an evil hypocrite and Kentucky deserves so much better. ##votehimout,” the “This is Us” star tweeted.

On Saturday, she continued her argument, writing it is “imperative” Democrats take back the Senate.

The Popular Hedge Creek Falls In Northern California Was Once The Hideout Of An Infamous Stagecoach Robber

Located near the town of Dunsmuir, the beautiful Hedge Creek Falls

is a popular spot for nature lovers and waterfall chasers.

This waterfall’s magnificent beauty is no secret,

but did you know it was also the hideout

for one of the West’s most infamous stagecoach robbers?

It sounds downright strange, but it’s true.

Long before it was a popular tourist attraction along Interstate 5,

this waterfall was “home” to one of the most wanted men in America for a short time.

It’s a story that makes this popular waterfall all the more fascinating!

Located right along Hedge Creek in the Shasta Cascade area of Northern California, Hedge Creek Falls is a true gem.

The 35-foot waterfall is absolutely beautiful and a popular destination for

hiking and waterfall enthusiasts, and its little-known history makes it even more unique.

As it turns out, this gorgeous cascade acted as the hideout of one of the Wild West’s most infamous criminals:

Charles E. Bolton.

Better known as Black Bart,

the outlaw made a career out of robbing stagecoaches along the area’s Siskiyou Trail.

Born in England before his family moved to New York,

Bolton started out as just one of the many men who traveled West in search of riches during the Gold Rush.

However, nothing ever came of his prospecting escapades,

and therefore Black Bart took it upon himself to find other ways to strike it big.

NOR CAL ADVENTURES: BLACK BARTS HIDEOUT

Black Bart committed a string of robberies in the 1880s

in various parts of Northern California and Southern Oregon.

Legend has it, Bart would appear on foot with a flour sack over his head,

pointing a shotgun at the stagecoach and politely asking for the money to be handed over.

He was notably non-violent, never discharging his gun during the robberies.


As he was spending a lot of time on the Siskiyou Trail,

Black Bart was on the hunt for a lookout where he could rest,

clean up and hide from authorities or angry townspeople.

The 12-foot cave located below Hedge Creek Falls was the perfect solution.


Although just a short hike from the interstate today,

this cave was as remote as can be in Black Bart’s day.

It made for an excellent hiding spot.

Not only that, but the creek’s flowing water was perfect for cleaning himself up

so he could go out and commit more robberies.

However, Black Bart’s luck was soon to run out.


Bolton made the big mistake of leaving behind a handkerchief at the scene of one of his crimes.

Authorities used the piece of evidence to trace him back to the boarding house where he lived, arresting him in 1883.

Black Bart would spend four years at San Quentin for his crimes.


Black Bart seemed to disappear off the face of the earth shortly after his release from prison.

His whereabouts for the rest of his life are unknown.

However, if you visit the very same cave that lies beneath Hedge Creek Falls today you may just feel a little bit of Black Bart’s presence.

Did you know the story behind Hedge Creek Falls and its role as a stagecoach robber’s hideout?

MITCH McCONNELL: TRUMPS NEXT SCOTUS PICK WILL RECEIVE A VOTE ON THE SENATE FLOOR

Not wasting any time, And in typical poor taste, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night,

That President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,

“will receive a vote on the floor of the United, States Senate.”

Ginsburg, 87, died Friday from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer.

“The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,

And the conclusion of her extraordinary American life,” McConnell said in a statement Friday.

“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016,

Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term.

We kept our promise,” McConnell continued.

“Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”

McConnell added that “by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump,

And support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary.”

“Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

DAWG SAYS: THEY ARE NOT WASTING ANY TIME; THE BODY IS NOT EVEN COLD YET.

TYPICAL POLITICS.
