Gorsuch Confirmed to Supreme Court Just in Time

Thanks to swift and bold action on the part of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Friday…and not a moment too soon. By pushing his confirmation through and breaking the Democratic filibuster without a moment’s hesitation, McConnell ensured that Judge Gorsuch would be seated in time to hear the last cases of the court’s spring term – some of which are extraordinarily important to conservative principles.

Conservative, constitutional ideology now has five votes on the Supreme Court once again, and we have every reason to expect that Gorsuch will live up to the immaculate name of the man whose seat he is taking: the late, great Antonin Scalia. Will he vote the way we wish he would on every case? Probably not; he’s a judge, not a partisan pundit. Sometimes the cards simply don’t fall the way conservative commentators might otherwise wish.

But when it comes down to the meat of the matter, Gorsuch has signaled that he has the right stuff to move the court in the direction of fairness, objectivity, and constitutional originalism.

We’ll see where he stands soon enough; the court is set to hear opening arguments in the case of Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley in just two weeks’ time. Gorsuch will almost certainly have his robes by that time, and he’ll be able to vote on the case – which is an important one in the realm of religious freedom.

Trinity Lutheran is suing because the state of Missouri declined to provide the church with grant money to resurface their daycare playground…even though the state gives such money to other nonprofit organizations. The state says that by giving money to the church, they would be violating the separation of church and state.

But that’s nonsense, as prior Supreme Court decisions have already made clear.

That’s only one of many cases where a fifth conservative vote could make all the difference in the upcoming term and in the months and years to come. Gorsuch has a chance to not only build his own personal legal legacy on the Supreme Court, but to continue to brilliant foundation laid by his predecessor.

By the time he steps aside as president, Donald Trump will have doubtlessly done many things that rankle his own voters, just as every president before him. But no matter what he does from here on out, he made good on his promise to put a true conservative on the Supreme Court. That’s certainly more than we would have gotten from Hillary Clinton.

Hopefully, Trump’s conservative critics will remember that when the going gets tough.

    And just like that millions of libturd idiots are running around screaming that the GOP cheated because the GOP used the same tactics that the worthless moron, Harry Ried, used in 2013 to boost Obozo’s judges into office. I hope Ginsberg gets out in the next year so Trump may replace her, as well. That way there will be NOTHING the libturds can do once the SCOTUS is once again more conservative. They enjoyed a nice run with all the liberal thinking judges running roughshod over this country, now it’s our turn.

    • tCotUS

      Totally Agree !!

    • Jim Norris

      Maybe judge GINSBERG could die very suddenly under ODD, STRANGE and WEIRD circumstances, TOO!!!

      • Austinniceguy

        Then the domoncraps would launch a media campaign claiming that the Ruskies colluded with President T to make that happen. LMAO!!!!

        • rfrichey

          Wouldn’t it be terrible if the Ruskies did? Not

          • Austinniceguy

            Sheer perfection!!!

        You mean she’s not already dead? I guess she is just in a perpetual deep sleep.

        • Chandler

          There is hope ahead, she can’t live forever!!! She is out and out Demo-rat hateful.

          • David in MA

            Her liberal anger is going to kill her.

          • Chandler

            Well then that would solve the problem of her sleeping and being told by the two Supreme Court judges how to make her rulings, after they woke her up.
            You know the two ” Barack Hussein Obama ” put into the Supreme Court during his rule for 8 years..
            You know the kid raised in a Communist household for some years by so called mothers parents and then raided by a Black Muslim in Kenya for more years, that person.

          • Jim H.

            You mean the SOB that was born in Kenya and raised communist and claims to be Muslim? That POS president of sedition?

            We need her gone sooner than later. Back when the crowning of the crone aka Hillary was imminent she had announced that she would retire the next year. The dim-wit-crats tried to get her to leave a year or two ago while Obozo the clown was still squatting in the white House.

          • Chandler

            Agreed, but we cannot be like the Democrats we must keep our honor and as we all know the Democrats gave up any kind of honor a long long time age.
            They fell into the trap and allowed the Socialist, far left leaning Progressives and admitted Communist to take there party over.
            So we will find a true reason to force her out or we will wait until she passes.
            That is the way it is until the law or laws are changed.

        • Lillyhammer Lip

          Naaw…I think I saw her move—once.

          • pmbalele

            I can predict fights in the WH soon caused by Ivanka Trump. Trump is controlled by his daughter Ivanka for which I do not blame him. Parents listen more to their kids than people outside the family. Trump will not listen to his appointed agency heads. Have you see Dr. Carson in the WH or any of those agency heads? No. They have to clear with Ivanka before seeing Trump. Ivanka has already fired one agency head. Soon Ivanka will declare herself as Chief of Staff and Vice President. This I gotta see.

            What a shame that the Democrat Party of Socialist, far far left Progressives and admitted Communist can’t just be disbanded, they do no good for America.
            Just saying !!

          • jaybird

            They and other rich are involved in the pedophile ring. Dr. Phil’s discussion of it caused the Dutch to pull his show. I saw a video of 2 (one was 8)young children (UK) giving accounts of what was happening to them at school and their father was head of the satanic ring. He is an an acquaintance of the Clintons. All the evidence tape’s of the children were given to local police and they did nothing because of rich important people involved. They gave custody of children to father and the evidence is missing except their mother kept copies. She was pleading/crying for the return of her children and showing pic’ of them. She will probably never see them again. They are a sick bunch of MF”s (sorry about that).

          • Chandler

            To start with I don’t take much account on what the TV’s Dr Phil has to say, or any other TV doctors.
            It is the corrupt filthy rich that assist the illegals and Demo-Craps to disrupt commerce and that is against the law, but does it matter to anyone in power NO.
            Let me restate HELL NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • jaybird

            He had a women on there that had escaped from sexual slavery by the rich. He investigated it for 4 months before putting it on his show.

            The video of the children in the UK was not on his show. This is real in our country, the UK and other countries.

          • Chandler

            Maybe or then again maybe not !!!!!!!

            The welfare voters keep them in office.

          • Chandler

            No it is not just the Welfare it is the illegals and Democrats that keep this crap going.
            just my thoughts.

            Dems are about as good as disbanded… maybe they’ll take the hint…

            A what a wet week it was….Scalia was found dead in his bed with a pillow over his head!

          • jaybird

            Yeah, Obama had a little talk with him beforehand and he left security behind. His plane was escorted to Texas with fighter jets to make sure he went. I think the owner of this hunt club was a friend of Obamma’s, (been awhile since I read all details). Supposedly there were Satanic mask hanging in the room.

          • Chandler

            Nothing about this sounds credible to me, BUT who can say,

          • jaybird

            Google it and then decide.

          • Chandler

            I make it a habit to only believe 1/2 or less of what I read, that is a rule of thumb I go by.
            Anything can and is written, but does not make it so.

          • jaybird

            I read multiple articles on each subject!

          • Chandler

            That’s great, I just have a different way to get to the truth, If there is a truth to be gotten.

          • Chandler

            Never heard that, but then again not surprised.
            Let me guess it was called a accident like the ones close to the Clinton’s were accidents !!

      • jaybird

        You mean like Scalia?

      • AmericanBelle1

        A little trivia….last year Ginsberg fell asleep during the SOTU and didn’t take kindly to the laughing. So this year she says she watched the SOTU from her home. Actually, she just said that…she went to bed and ignored it completely.

      • mk

        Jim Norris you are suggesting the Scalia died in a way other than, how do I put this, natural causes as some people suggested about Joan Rivers because she made a comment about Obama and Michelle and then she was suddenly, for no medical explanation, gone?

      • Lillyhammer Lip

        From the “Clinton effect?”

      • pmbalele

        Would believe Repubs and Conservatives are drinking to Neil Gorsuch joining the Supreme Court!. I do not think that really matter or guarantee Neil will side with Trump or Repubs and TPs in every case. Scalia defected from GOP in many ways. Remember Scalia authored Abercrombie which gave minorities and women easier way to prove discrimination. So the argument Neil confirmation is a victory to Trump is misleading. Trump will be disappointed when Neil turns against him. You cannot trust White male in such positions. If Neil is an educated judge, he will stick to interpretation of the US Constitution as he thinks right. After all Neil like many judges get peanuts for their hard, exceptionally responsible and sacred work. So I believe all people in this Country won. As i told you, we Democrats should have done the same with President Obama’s nomination last year. For now let’s just wait.

      • patriot2

        that’s right,is ginsberg a friend of the clintons?

      • Jonathan Brooks

        And her autopsy will show an odd level of foxglove in the samples, like Scalia did…..but of course the Dems will insist she be cremated immediately, so no further forensic analysis can be done…oh, I forgot, that is just with conservatives.

      • Certainly if she is no longer a justice Trump will do the same as he did in the last appointment and nominate a far left liberal who supports abortion and the redefining of marriage like his appointee Gorsuch. Trump intentionally betrayed his promise of a conservative judge when he got Gorsuch confirmed and he will do the same to replace anymore. Trump revealed his true leftist ideology in the appointment of Gorsuch and his deceit in appointing the furthest left of all the SCOTUS judges.

    • jaybird

      She hates him, she will only leave on a morgue slab.

      • Chandler

        That will be fine with me and I bet with millions of others !!!

    • Chandler

      I am hoping the ancient Judges in the Supreme Court either retire or other.
      So President Trump can put at least two more Judges that use our laws of the land and Constitution to make rulings.
      No more using there own or others opinions to make important rulings.

    • R Miller

      Yes our turn, but really time of correction of the perverted bench by political hacks. We are effected by the political bias that has been unscounced in the court-and even that is a tragedy. They must divest themselves of politics and liberal constitution busting destruction. The quality of their judgement in the past should be the only quiz. How much was overturned and by whom?

    • AmericanBelle1

      There are two judges over 80 and one who is 80. All three are liberal judges (well, one swings back and forth). Replacing them would bring the Court to an 8-1 majority! I’m sure Ginsburg will stay until death because she’s so liberal she won’t want to be replaced by a Trump conservative nominee…but she’s a pancreatic cancer survivor so that day may come sooner than she thinks. I don’t understand how the hell she’s lasted this long!

      • Judge Thomas plans to retire. Trump can replace him with a much younger judge that will be around for a long time. Remember no more hunting trips.

      • Austinniceguy

        Great post!!! To answer you point at the end of your post; God doesn’t want her and the devil doesn’t want the competition, that’s why that old bag of assorted chicken parts is still around.

      • There is little or no chance of Trump appointing a conservative to the court. Future appointees will surely be leftists like Gorsuch who is pro abortion and is for the redefining of marriage to include homosexual unions. I cannot find any conservative views that Gorsuch holds but instead he looks to be a typical leftist appointment that we would expect from a far left lifetime liberal Democrat like Trump. I am a little surprised at his in your face betrayal of us conservatives which reveals his arrogance along with his poor judgement. He has betrayed his conservative base as we suspected he would do based on the fact that he is a new “conservative”??? Where is the conservative outrage for this appointment of a far left liberal to the court? Is the dumbing down of America complete by the left?

        https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/02/01/neil-gorsuch-belongs-to-a-notably-liberal-church-and-would-be-the-first-protestant-on-the-court-in-years/?utm_term=.e1beb5ec2f9e

    • mk

      Austinniceguy ok!

    • Democrats changed the rules that had applied for more than 200yrs..These twisted people are haters of our God inspired Constitution. Which limits their evil agenda for you and me..

    • Well the court just took a giant leap backwards with the appointment of Gorsuch who is pro-abortion and for the redefining of marriage to include homosexual unions. Gorsuch is now the judge who is the most liberal on the court.

    • Gale

      ginsberg = liberal scum of the earth *itch

    • That is not likely to happen with the leftist Trump doing the nominations. Surely you studied Trump’s past and you know that his history is of being a lifetime far left liberal Democrat ideologue. He has only been a Republican long enough to run for POTUS as a Republican. He does not share any conservative ideology with conservatives. The evidence of that is that he ran to the left of Hillary in the campaign on issues like abortion which he wanted to be a part of the Republican platform. Thankfully the platform committee refused. He sang the praises of the abortion mill “Planned Parenthood” and promised to expand their services of murder of babies with government funding. He was against gun owners wanting a national registration of gun owners that will surely result in gun confiscation. Lastly but not all inclusively, he campaigned for universal free healthcare based on the Canadian system. Certainly he is not a conservative in any way.

      WITH TRUMP AS POTUS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE OF THE COURT GOING IN ANY DIRECTION EXCEPT TO THE LEFT AS THE APPOINTMENT OF THE LEFTIST JUDGE GORSUCH PROVES. God help America.

      • Austinniceguy

        If Gorsuch were so leftist why did the Demoncr@ps fight so hard to keep him out?

        • First of all, do not take my word for Gorsuch being a leftist. Do the research and that will be the undeniable conclusion. Particularly look at his stances on abortion and on traditional marriage. Also look at his associations such as where he goes to church and the fact that it is an extremely leftist Episcopal church with a lesbian minister. They are known for confirming lesbian and gay unions. You will notice that they, the left, never mentioned that Gorsuch was against the traditional definition of marriage and wanting a more inclusive definition that includes homosexual unions. They also did not mention that Gorsuch is adamantly pro-abortion. He has clearly stated, which you can research, that he believes in the supposed “right” for a mother to murder her unborn child. Now, to be clear, I believe in choice in that, when the fornication begins ipso facto, the choice has been made.

          I think that because there was no debate on Gorsuch coming from the ideological left that such speaks volumes for him being acceptable to them. I did not see the left fighting hard to keep him out. Why would they?…his selection satisfied their wildest leftist dreams. It was proof to them that Trump was still one of them and that he had not suddenly become a Republican and a conservative after a lifetime on the far left ideologically.Think about it…here was Trump speaking like a conservative and acting like a liberal. Which speaks the loudest, words or actions.

          Being from Austin, you should be very good at recognizing leftists.

          • Austinniceguy

            Blah, blah, blah, blah. Too wordy and WAAAAAY too boring for me to read through all your cr@p.

          • I am sorry for responding to you above your intellectual ability at discernment. I might add, do not ask if you cannot handle or understand a truthful answer. I have very little patience for leftists like yourself who support other leftists like Trump and Gorsuch.

          • Austinniceguy

            Blah, blah, blah. I’m too busy celebrating President Trump to read your garbage.

          • Great, I have no patience for liberals like yourself who worship leftist manure like Trump your leftist orange god.

    • Are you aware that Trump just got confirmed the most far left judge on the current court. Gorsuch is pro-abortion and wants to redefine marriage to include homosexual unions.

      • Austinniceguy

        Blah, blah, blah, blah.

        • After your previous posts revealing that you share your Svengali Trump’s far left liberal ideology I am not surprised that you are pleased with getting leftist judges to SCOTUS. Remaining ignorant should not be a prideful attribute but then if you educated yourself then you would no longer be a pawn for the ideological left and bow down to their leader Trump.
          You are a typical clueless Austin liberal.

          • Austinniceguy

            Blah, blah, blah, blah. Didn’t waste my time reading your worthless trash. ROTFFLMFAO!!!!

          • You should spend less time laughing like an idiot and spend more time researching and confirming what you believe about Trump. The evidence is there or should I say is not there for Trump being a conservative. The fact are that he has zero conservative history but instead a lifetime of supporting the left and pontificating leftist views. He has been a Republican only long enough to run as a Republican for POTUS. He has just confirmed his leftist ideological bent by getting confirmed the most far left liberal to get confirmed to SCOTUS. Why not spend less time on here displaying your ignorance and do some research on Trump’s leftist past. His history is diametrically opposed to your illogical and uninformed musings. Are you really reveling in being deceived? You are one of the typical Austin far left liberal air heads.

          • Austinniceguy

            Blah, blah, blah, blah. In case you haven’t noticed, NO ONE GIVES A SH!T what an idiot like you has to say!!! ROTFFLMFAO!!!!

          • Are you assuming that everyone is as deceived as you by this far left lifetime liberal Democrat Trump. Not everyone is struck with celebrity envy like you and drank the Kool-Aid provided by the left. Some do not want to be deceived and will research either to deny or confirm my statements. You are evidence that the dumbing down of America is complete by the left. Trump has NEVER been on the political right in his entire life.

          • Austinniceguy

            Blah, blah, blah, blah. Still no one cares about any of your moronic blather. ROTFFLMFAO!!!!

    • During the Trump Presidency you can be certain that there will NEVER be a conservative judge appointed to SCOTUS. They will continue to be leftists like Gorsuch.

    Donald Trump would be advised to give Mitch McConnell a very big Christmas present this year. McConnell’s failure to do his constitution duty with Merrick Garland insured Trump 8 years in office.

        I have read some weird sites about the “deep state” and they are a scary bunch. There are black ops that the CIA operate that no one knows about.

        • AmericanBelle1

          The recent Wikileaks dump on Vault 7 underscores Obama’s shadow government, i.e., deep state. We’ve learned the CIA works for Obama doing his bidding, not what’s required of them. It’s how they were able to spew the Trump/Russia collusion meme, with intelligence coming out and saying they had the fingerprints of Russia all over the DNC server and Podesta email hacking to prove such. Vault 7 confirmed that the CIA’s espionage tactics include leaving the Russian fingerprint to make it look as though the Russians have been doing the hacking. This is what they based their allegations on for that collusion, and it’s why they are now mum on that collusion, since Trump wouldn’t have launched missiles on his “friends”, i.e., fellow colluders!

          • jaybird

            The “deep state” has always operated behind the scenes for years causing wars and discourse in other countries to benefit themselves by getting the US involved. Look what happened to JFK.

            jaybird no one knows everything except for GOD !!

          • jaybird

            I am pretty sure I was aware of that!

          • Chandler

            So what you are saying is we are in agreement as we should be, if we are to save our Country from further harm.

          • Indeed, it all starts with conservative Republicans realizing tht we have been duped by this lifetime far left liberal Democrat Trump. We now have the most liberal judge possible in Gorsuch who is pro abortion and anti traditional marriage. Trump broke his promise to conservatives and it is time that conservatives responded in kind to this Trojan Horse POTUS Trump.

          • Chandler

            Not at all we were never duped or at least the ones that can think were not duped as you say.
            You Democrats need to get a site of your own and go there, so we can have a intelligent conversation.

          • Sorry, I thought you were an actual Republican or at least a conservative. Since you take offense that can only mean that you are a far left liberal Democrat ideologue like your Svengali Trump.
            In contrast to you I am a lifetime far right conservative Republican who has NEVER voted for a leftist Democrat like Trump in my long life.
            I think it is time for a reality check for you…from your answer to me it appears that you are a far left liberal like your orange god. I have been a conservative Republican my entire life. I have never been able to have a intelligent conversation with a leftist like you in my life. Now it is time for you to return to sticking your nose to get a better smell of your far left lifetime Democrat ideologue Trump. He just nominated and got confirmed the most far left liberal ever to serve on SCOTUS. He is pro abortion and in favor of redefining marriage to include homosexual unions.

          • Chandler

            Any fool can criticize ,condemn,and complain, and most fools do. Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear.

          • There is no mask needed when one is open and confident of their studied political position. I have been a conservative Republican all of my life and it is quite disconcerting to see my Republican Party taken over by the left so easily. There are just a few never Trumper’s like I who are keeping the light of conservative ideology alive. What was once a strong bonfire for conservatism is now a flickering flame of a candle. Conservatism has all but been extinguished by the capitulation of conservatives to the left to endorse Trump. The only viable reason any of you can give is that Trump is not Hillary but does that mantra really have any meaning? Trump is to the ideological left of Hillary and supported abortion, campaigned for gun control with a national registration of gun owners, supported the brutal and diabolic murder of the unborn and wanted universal healthcare based on the Canadian system. These are not the positions of conservatives and belie the truth that Trump is still the far left liberal Democrat ideologue he has always been.

            There is no mask for me as I declare openly and with pride my conservative values and ideals. I have no reason or desire to deceive but to enlighten the deceived. If you want the continuation of the leftist America of Obama then support Trump. But, if you want a conservative America you MUST oppose him on every leftist move to the left that he makes.

        There is an entrenched oligarchy in DC. It contains both Democrats and Republicans and a horde of faceless bureaucrats. They have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo that Trump is demolishing. They are very protective of their highly paid, privileged applecart, and President Trump is upsetting the cart, hence the damaging leaks and monkey wrenching that has gone on. Bear in mind that the president has to operate under Obama’s last budget until September 30th, when the fiscal year ends. Look for some big changes afterwards.

          I read that it was going to get worse from the Oligarchy meddling.

        • Chandler

          There is no secret in the knowledge you write about, we all know that most the money people except for Trump for the most part, are in fact furthering there own agenda. They believe that they have the right to rule. That is why they say the Hell with We The People.
          But We The People, are also complacent and not doing our do diligence to stop this madness. We sit back and complain yet we do not rise up to do anything about it.

          • jaybird

            Quite a few of us worked hard for Trump to win! Worked hard to get Boehner out, now have to find someone to replace Rino Ryan! I really got involved 7 yrs ago when I retired.

          • Chandler

            I think that is great and I for one appreciate what your doing, I also do my part in trying to help our Country and her legal citizens.

        Trump is doing magnificently considering that his only support comes from the people who elected him….everyone else is against him and protesting, blocking, resisting and setting up as many obstacles as possible. The press is horrendous…you’d think Trump was Hitler! He’s not fighting an uphill battle, he’s fighting to claw his way up Mt.Everest with all the hatred of the left trying to stop him all the way.

        • Chandler

          Yep you are totally correct.

      • W. Coyote

        Chandler- Good evening and thank you for your reply. I agree- “Time will tell”. I was referring to the inevitability that Gorsuch may cast the deciding vote if any of the various Trump scandals reach the Supreme Court- Russia? Conflicts of interest? etc.
        Putting Clarence Thomas on the court sure paid off for the Bush family.

      • Conservatives like myself want him to fight against the Democrats and Soros and not with them. But, what you say is unfortunately true and we will have to live with the puppet master Soros pulling Trump’s strings.

    • banjojack

      He needs to start with Paul Ryan. the quintessential RINO. He makes extra money by giving Nancy Pelosi Democrat lessons.

      • W. Coyote

        banjojack- Good evening and thank you for your response. I don’t think anyone has to worry about Paul Ryan. I was referring the possibility that any one of a number of Trump scandals could end up in the Supreme Court.

        • Coyote, you keep mentioning Trump scandals, is this wishful thinking? Why would scandals reach the Supreme Court? Lately they have not even been prosecuted with a president.

          • W. Coyote

            Joe- Good morning and thank you for your reply. There may be an element of wishful thinking in my comments. I am not excited about the possibility of dragging the country through a major presidential scandal, but I am worried that Trump is creating more problems than he solves. Hopefully any of the potential scandals floating around will be resolved before they reach the SC, but Trump likes to use the courts. He has filed hundreds of lawsuits against people who rub him the wrong way. You may be right that any cases would reach the SC are unlikely, but it is certainly possible that appeals work there way up to the high court. I’m also thinking that his fabricated claim that “Obama wiretapped Trump Tower…sick guy” constitutes libel. I would like to see Obama sue Trump over that one. Then we have the numerous conflicts of interest. A claim is out there that Trump owns stock in Raytheon which makes Tomahawk missiles. Did Trump profit by ordering the strike on Syria? Snopes did a very detailed analysis and determined that those claims were “Unproven”, but we may not have heard the last of that one. The fact that he did not place his assets in a blind trust creates more potential conflicts of interest and it is possible that the SC may have to rule that he should show his tax returns, for example. Then we have the possibility that the next election ends up in a suit like Bush v. Gore. Putting Clarence Thomas on the court sure paid off for the Bush family.

      McConnell had absolutely no constitutional duty or requirement to accept the president’s nominee (which is a constitutional responsibility of a president). The president fulfilled his duty, and McConnell fulfilled the same duty as Joe Biden did back when Bush was president and a SCOTUS position went vacant during Bush’s lame duck term. they left the decision up to the electorate to decide…liberal with Hillary, or conservative with Trump. And McConnell took a HUGE chance by not accepting Garland because at the time, Hillary was supposed to be a shoe-in. Had she won, her nominee would have been far more liberal than Garland. Congress was under no obligation or constitutional requirement to consider Garland…Schumer lies, as usual.

      • W. Coyote

        AmericanBelle- Good evening and thank you for your reply. Many Republicans and some news sources (Fox, Breitbart, etc.) have made a good deal out of the so-called “Biden rule”. Of course, what they are leaving out are the facts. First of all, there was no “Biden rule”. Sen. Biden was expressing his opinion. Second, he made his statements much closer to the election of 1992 than the McConnell actions were to the election of 2016. Third, Biden was speaking hypothetically. There was no Supreme Court vacancy to fill. There was no nominee to consider. Fourth, he stated that during the election cycle, the nomination should be considered after the election, i.e. between November and January.

        “[The President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint … Judges of the supreme Court.”— President Obama did his part.

  • banjojack

    I think the most important issues the new SCOTUS can address will be those pertaining to immigration. Birthright citizenship has to stop. Now. While children born to illegal parents are not citizens, if one or both of the parents were here legally AT THE TIME OF BIRTH, they are citizens. Two already decided Supreme Court cases verify this; Elk v Wilkins 1885, and US v Song Kim Ark 1898. Also 8 USC reinforces these decisions. If someone has applied for US citizenship, fine. Something like 70% of the children of illegals are themselves citizens now because one of the parents was here legally at the time of birth. The practice of treating ALL babies born to ALL illegals as birthright citizens has no legal or constitutional basis. Don’t give me any crap about the 14th Amendment, The author of the Amendment, Senator Jacob Howard of Michigan, stated that it was intended solely for insuring full citizenship rights for former slaves and their children. He even stated it did not apply to diplomatic personnel and non-citizens. People in this country illegally are not considered “subject to the jurisdiction” of the US, but of their country of origin where their legal citizenship obtains.
    We cannot sustain this flood of illegal aliens. (Pardon, I meant to say “still-to-be-registered-Democratic voters.”) If these illegals tended to favor Republican candidates by a 70/30 margin, Liberals who now support amnesty and unrestricted immigration would set up a howl you could here on Neptune.

    I’m not sure it should be called “ad hominem” since generally no individuals are named, but the use of expressions like “libturds” and “Demo-rats” does nothing to strengthen the writers’ points. Think! Then write cogently.

    What is it with two oaths, one behind closed doors?
    Obama and now the judge, how many more we don’t know about?
    These oaths should be given on the floor of an assembly of both houses of congress.

  • Len

    Off topic comment – I didn’t know anything about Kagan’s (?) nomination to the Supreme Court. Was there a hearing cuz I didn’t “hear” anything about it.
    Having a judge nominated by a “Republucan” president HOPEFULLY will follow the US Constitution and not some ideology/agenda by liberals. The Constitution is not a “fluid” document to be twisted and spun (spin) the way one sees to fit progressive thinking.

    • I am sorry to burst your bubble but Gorsuch is arguably the furthest left liberal to ever become a justice of SCOTUS. Trump has shown his true ideology with the appointment and confirmation of this leftist. I know, many of you do not believe me but I implore you to do some study and you will find that Gorsuch is in favor of abortion and is against the traditional definition of marriage. These beliefs of his make him a leftist liberal judge. Trump betrayed his promise with the nomination and confirmation of Gorsuch.

      • Len

        Never heard of his beliefs about abortion and same sex marriage stances. But whatever, I wasn’t asked to confirm him so it’s moot at this point.

        • There is a reason that conservatives and Republicans were not told and that is because it was an orchestrated ruse to deceive conservatives into thinking that Gorsuch was a conservative. How does it make you feel to know that you have been intentionally deceived ito believing that Gorsuch is the opposite ideologically that he was presented by Trump. You confirmed him when you voted for Trump and every leftist judge to follow. If anything this election shows that voting should not be a frivolous activity but should be a studied response to your conscience. Many people want to ignore that the voted for the murder of babies and for the redefining of marriage into a caricature of its real meaning. But, redefining is what leftists do to make their evil palatable.

          • Len

            i actually did not vote for Trump. So … try again.

          • Good, he was the most deplorable of the choices.

  • george briar

    Trump is good Hillary is bad but Obama is the pits.

    • Remember that Trump called Obama a “great President” after using his money and influence to get Obama elected. They remain close friends and continue to share a common ideology.

  • Alleged Comment

    He is working against 2 lesbians, 1 immigrant and a negro (albeit a supposedly conservative one) and 2 phonies. Good luck!

    Separation of Church and State slays me it is obvious that no one has studied what our forefathers meant by the separation of the Church from the State.
    England had a Church of the State which caused havoc amongst the people. Had nothing to do with independent Church’s as we have in the USA. There is nothing wrong with a Preacher telling it how it is per the Bible the Word of God, there is nothing wrong with telling his congregation the rights and wrongs of voting for a certain person if they do not conform to the Word of God. Separation of Church and State was meant to be that the USA would not create a State national or Church nor would a State create a State Church. That is what separation of Church and State means. If a Church has a community program in it that is working and helping and the people of that community want their tax dollars to help fund it then so be it Nothing wrong with that. The Catholic Church get State and Federal aids for some of their special programs. I do think that the people should have a say in what types of funding a Church should get just as any charitable organization there should also be a lid on the amount of tax dollars that go to organizations and thorough investigation into their community service and reviews done once a year.
    Actually we should not allow any Federal tax dollars to any charitable organizations including Federal grants. Federal government really does not have any business getting into charities of any kind.
    This is the job of the communities in deciding as to what they want to support and if they can’t support it they it is obvious it should not be. States are different and the people can vote as to where they want the State tax dollars to go but should never ever go more than 25% of what the community donates and should be reviewed every year as to how it is doing and doing what it stated it would do for the community. We the People should support our own community charitable and Church organizations that are doing good with in the community it is not the government job to support these types of fundings nor grants. If it is good the people will support it if not then it failed.

    • The Federal Government should get out of the charity business such as welfare that is used to buy votes.

  • Jim H.

    It’s a good thing that For such isn’t a political minded and corrupt judge as we find most Liberal Democrats these days. Any judge can make errors. But those who purposely make judgements against the Constitution because of political affiliation corrupt everything that is American.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    This is one small step for Conservatives and one large step for mankind.

  • Well, first of all, Gorsuch is not a conservative by any reasonable measure and we should not expect conservative results from his decisions. Remember what we learned in the confirmation period about Gorsuch and his views. We know that he is a social liberal and that he attends a far left liberal church where gay unions are celebrated as marriages and the murder of the unborn is determined to be a woman’s right with no consideration for the babies right to live because the baby was conceived in the wrong womb. He has clearly stated that abortion is settled law and must be allowed being implicit that the baby has no rights apart from the rights of his or her mother’s.

    With the Gorsuch appointment and subsequent confirmation Donald Trump has broken his promise to America to nominate a conservative to the court. America continues its sharp and sudden turn to the ideological left with the leadership of this lifetime far left liberal Democrat ideologue Trump. Conservatives have been betrayed by Trump and we must learn to be vigilant in protecting the rights of the unborn and the institution of marriage that is under attack by the leftist liberal Trump administration.

    • Austinniceguy

      Blah, blah, blah, blah. You post nothing but useless blather. If anything you posted were true the libturd morons wouldn’t have opposed Gorsuch the way they did and Planned Parenthood wouldn’t be getting defunded because he would side with them. You would like for the readers to think you’re actually smart but you’re not. You just post blah, blah, blah.

      • In my long lifetime this was the easiest confirmation of a SCOTUS appointee. There was only tacit opposition and I am sure a lot of backslapping among the leftists who realized their certain victory. I am sure they were quite pleased to get a new judge that fulfilled their every desire, pro-abortion and anti the traditional definition of marriage.

        https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/02/01/neil-gorsuch-belongs-to-a-notably-liberal-church-and-would-be-the-first-protestant-on-the-court-in-years/?utm_term=.715812febbb9

          Blah, blah, blah, blah. Didn’t waste my time reading your trash and I see you also posted another one of your links to try to transmit more of your computer viruses on here. Not falling for that. RPTFFLMFAO!!!

          • I use a Chrome computer that makes it impossible to get or transmit viruses. If anyone does not trust my links and the protection of this forum then just do the GOOGLE search themselves about the far left liberal Church that Gorsuch attends which has a lesbian pastor and confirms gay unions. He is also adamantly pro-abortion and believes that it is OK for mothers to murder their children. Just a heads up to you…those are not in any way conservative issues and positions but instead are revealing of a leftist ideology instead. Please learn to think and to do research and quit believing the liberal spin that you are inundated with in Austin which is the most leftist city in America.
