    ‘No Right’: Schumer Claims It Would ‘Spell the End’ of the Senate If Republicans Fill Ginsburg Vacancy

    Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) claimed Monday that Republicans have “no right” to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the recent death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ahead of the November election, and said doing so would “spell the end” of the Senate.Schumer’s comments came in a speech on the Senate floor in response to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell’s remarks that President Trump’s nominee for a vacancy would receive a vote on the floor of the Senate.“By all rights, by every modicum of decency and honor, Leader McConnell and the Republican Senate majority have no right to fill it, no right,” Schumer said.Schumer then repeated Ginsburg’s alleged statement to her granddaughter in her final days of life that her “most fervent wish” was that she should not be replaced until a new president is installed. He added that Senate Republicans should have “no problem adhering to Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish” as Leader McConnell “held the Supreme Court vacancy open for nearly a year in order to ‘give the people a voice' in selecting a Supreme Court justice.”He criticized McConnell and Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) for going back on the standard they set in 2016 following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia when Senate Republicans refused to vote on President Obama's nominee Merrick Garland."The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice,” McConnell had said then. “Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."However, McConnell said his current stance is not comparable to his position from 2016 as the Senate was held by Republicans while the president was a Democrat.On Monday McConnell quoted his own comments from February 2016 in saying, "The Senate has not filled a vacancy arising in an election year when there was a divided government since 1888, almost 130 years ago."Yet Schumer painted a dire picture of the Senate should Republicans move forward with filling the vacancy, saying the move would take the legislative body down a “dangerous path.”“I worry for the future of this chamber if the Republican majority proceeds down this dangerous path. If a Senate majority over the course of six years steals two Supreme Court seats using completely contradictory rationales, how could we expect to trust the other side again?” he said. “If, when push comes to shove, when the stakes are the highest, the other side will double-cross their own standards when it’s politically advantageous, tell me how this would not spell the end of this supposedly great deliberative body, because I don't see how," he continued.The New York Democrat urged four Senate Republicans to commit to rejecting any nominee until the next president is installed, saying “that was Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish and it may be the Senate’s only last hope.”Senators Susan Collins (R., Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) have both said they would not support confirming a presidential nominee ahead of the election.

    Costco Abruptly Removes This Popular Cheese Brand From Its Stores

    After a controversial social media statement made by the owner of a fan-favorite cheese brand, Costco has abruptly removed the company's cheese from their stores. (To find out which items may soon be gone from grocery stores, check out 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply.)In August, Brian Henry, mayor of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, and the owner of Palmetto Cheese, caused widespread disapproval and calls for a boycott when he published a statement on his Facebook page calling the Black Lives Matter movement a "terror organization." And it looks like Costco has paid close attention to the public outcry, because the chain has reportedly removed Palmetto's popular pimento cheese from all 120 of its locations that carried it.The "pimento cheese with soul", as the packaging calls it, has been pulled from Costco's shelves and website overnight, but the company still hasn't clarified whether the removal is temporary or permanent.But it does seem like the retailer wanted to make it clear to their customers that the shortage of said cheese they are about to encounter wasn't an accident. In a statement posted on the shelf next to the remaining Palmetto products spotted at one location, the retailer said: "The * (asterisk) on this sign means that these 2 items are discontinued and will not be re-ordered by Costco. Over 120 Costco's throughout the US are no longer carrying this item."While Henry confirmed the chain cut his products from their lineup, he had a much more optimistic view. "Costco rotates items in and out during the course of the year. They will occasionally add and drop products as a matter of normal business. We remain optimistic that Palmetto Cheese will be back on the shelves in the not too distant future," he told media outlets.The focus on the pimento cheese product has also brought into question its origin. After allegations that the original recipe for it was "stolen" from Vertrella Brown, a Black employee of the brand whose likeness is used on the product's packaging, Henry denied the accusations in a press conference. "Unfortunately, there have been comments on social media and news outlets falsely suggesting that Vertrella Brown created the recipe for Palmetto Cheese. However, that is simply not true. The recipe for Palmetto Cheese is, and always has been, Sassy Henry's recipe," he stated, crediting his wife with inventing the winning cheese formula.He also announced that a rebranding effort aiming "to be more sensitive to cultural diversity" is underway for Palmetto Cheese.
