Hits and Misses

Which are hits and which are misses? That’s up to you to decide.
Opinion: Ginsburg gambled to stay and now she may lose her legacy
They gambled that Hillary would be choosing judges for the next 8 years. Quelle surprise!

The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court represents a huge political victory for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who gambled on blocking the nomination of Merrick Garland in the hopes of a GOP electoral victory.

It may also have been an equally huge loss for the of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who ignored increasing calls for her retirement during the Obama administration to avoid the prospect of the flipping of her seat from a liberal to a conservative member. That gamble — whatever calculation — could now cost a sweeping number of key cases hanging by a 5-4 margin, including much of the precedent built around Roe v. Wade, if not an outright overturning of that decision.

CNN Panel Gets Schooled On ‘Golf Diplomacy’

“Always play with leaders of countries and people that can help us,” the clip continued. “Don’t play with your friends all the time.”
The clip’s message seemed to fall on deaf ears, as host John King, Nia-Malika Henderson and Sara Murray spent the next few minutes laughing and taking shots at the President for what they viewed as hypocrisy.
YET, THEY WERE FINE WITH OBOZO GOLFING OVER 300 TIMES

Texas voter ID law was designed to discriminate against minorities, judge rules
THE FIX WAS IN… CHECK THIS OUT
GUESS WHO PUT THIS LATINA ON THE BENCH IN 2011?

The latest ruling by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi comes more than two years after she likened Texas’s voter ID rules, known as SB 14, to a “poll tax” meant to suppress minority voters. On Monday, she reaffirmed that conclusion after an appeals court asked her to reexamine her findings.

The Texas law requires voters to show one of seven forms of identification at the ballot box. The list includes concealed-handgun licenses but not college student IDs, and Texas was forced under court order last year to weaken the law for the November elections.

Doctor dragged off flight was convicted of trading drugs for sex
Dr. David Dao, 69, who was captured in a now-viral video being forcibly dragged off the Louisville-bound flight at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Sunday, was working as a doctor specializing in pulmonary disease in Elizabethtown when he was convicted of trading prescription drugs for sexual favors.
The board’s probe into the criminal charges found that Dao became sexually interested in a male patient, Brian Case, whom he gave a physical examination to, including a genital examination, and whom he eventually made his office manager.
The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure permitted Dao to continue practicing medicine in 2015 under certain conditions, after he completed his probation and underwent psychological evaluations, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

Gorsuch Will Make a Difference

Gorsuch will provide the Supreme Court with the crucial fifth vote needed to sustain the Constitution as written and to protect fundamental rights like religious freedom, free speech, and the right to bear arms.

SCOTUS and Constitution

The new Supreme Court justice will arrive in time to hear the April 19 oral arguments in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley, which is a case of stark, blatant religious discrimination by the government.

Gorsuch will also influence which pending petitions SCOTUS will accept for appeal.

Among those pending is Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an important case about an individual’s right to refuse to perform a service that violates his or her religious beliefs.

Two other important petitions — Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute and North Carolina v. North Carolina NAACP — involve voter ID and election integrity.

Neil Gorsuch should also provide the fifth vote needed to quash the judicial activism present in the injunctions against Trump’s travel ban orders.  The Constitution clearly gives POTUS the authority as commander-in-chief to protect the nation, something Obama did without any liberals freaking out about it.

Gorsuch confirmed 54-45

2017_04 Gorsuch and Reid

Three Democrats in the United States Senate — Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Heidi Heitcamp (N.D.) and Joe Manchin (W.V.) — joined with Republicans in voting to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

One Republican senator, Johnny Isakson (Ga.), did not vote because, as his office explained in a statement, he was “in Georgia today recovering from two back surgeries.”

Isakson made it clear that he supported Gorsuch and would have voted for him had he been in Washington today.

Enjoying a Little Nukie

2017_04 Gorsuch out of mainstream Dems say

From Stilton Jarlsberg:

History was made yesterday when, for the first time since our nation became a nation, Democrats filibustered an exemplary Supreme Court Nominee because – and we’ve got plenty of political scientists and analysts to back us up on this – they’re complete and total assholes.

The only way around this epic act of douchebaggery was for Senate Republicans to invoke the so-called “nuclear option,” which – disappointingly – did not require inviting Democrats to “a picnic and special surprise” in the remotest corner of Nevada while a gleeful Donald Trump punched their coordinates into his suitcase nuclear launch device.

Rather, it involved changing Senate rules to allow a Supreme Court nominee to be confirmed with a simple majority of 51 votes, rather than requiring the 60 votes which has traditionally been the standard. And under this rule, we should see standout nominee Judge Gorsuch confirmed for the Supreme Court sometime today.

We would say that the Democrats are losing their freaking minds over this, only that ship sailed a long time ago.

A History Lesson About Democrass Behavior

2017_03 Gorsuch filibuster

If you read nothing else about the Gorsuch confirmation battle, read this.

Democrats single-handedly and unilaterally introduced the concept of judicial filibusters against majority-supported nominees, then proceeded to unilaterally end it, all over the course of about a decade. They started the practice when they were in the minority, then blew it up when they were in the majority.

Republicans are not entirely blameless in these wars, as the GOP has inflamed tensions at various stages along the way, often through various forms of retaliation. But the broad-strokes record is clear:

  • The Democratic Party has been exclusively and repeatedly responsible for the biggest provocations, over the span of decades.
  • They have insisted upon an ever-changing set of standards under which they get their way, whether they are in or out of power.
  • They have sought to impose special restrictions on Republicans, shamelessly changing the rules of the game when the roles are reversed.

Modeling better behavior has not succeeded in shaming them. Targeted retaliation has not chastened them. They have increasingly approached these battles as zero-sum blood feuds, whereas Republicans have naively believed that honoring Senate traditions, with some turnabout sprinkled in, would dissuade their opponents from future provocations.

The Garland episode was an important turning point, when the GOP finally force-fed Democrats a taste of their own medicine; and boy, did they hate it.  And thus, a zero-sum fight, waged lopsidedly by one party for years, was at last fully engaged.

With their enraged base seething with blind fury, Democrats are now on the precipice of one final escalation. Democrats began and endlessly advanced this partisan war, but the time has come for Republicans to end it.

I need some GOOD news

I didn’t sleep well last night, so I’m being gentle with me today. 🙂

FACT PP 20 to 1

Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (WV) and Heidi Heitkamp (ND) have publicly pledged to vote for Neil Gorsuch. Both are up for reelection next year in states where Donald Trump won by massive margins.

The Senate has passed a pro-life bill that allows states to defund Planned Parenthood, effectually overturning the HHS rule enforced by the Obama administration that prevented states from blocking Title X funding to abortion providers.  Senator Johnny Isakson, Republican of Georgia, had been away for two back operations.  So critical was this vote that he got his doctor’s permission to make the trip to vote Aye.  RINOs Collins (ME) and Murkowski (AK) voted with the Democrats, leaving the vote at 50-50.  Vice President Mike Pence cast the deciding vote.

North Carolina’s GOP-led legislature repealed the “bathroom” law, after agreeing to a deal with Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper to strip away its language requiring people to use only public bathrooms that match their biological sex.  Basically, life in NC public jons goes back to where it was, with trannies who can pass using the bathroom of choice, while blocking the creeps.

President Donald Trump appointed Roger Severino to lead the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights (OCR).  Severino, a Harvard Law graduate, comes to HHS from the Heritage Foundation, where, according to his bio, he worked on religious freedom, marriage, and life issues and directed the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society in the Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity.

Former President Jimmy Carter said on the Laura Ingraham show: “I’ve signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need, requirement for abortion and limit it only to women whose life are in danger or who are pregnant as a result of rape or incest. I think if the Democratic Party would adopt that policy that would be acceptable to a lot of people who are now estranged from our party.”

This man’s ear was miraculously healed, thanks to the intercession of St. Katharine Drexel.  He relates, “I went into the hospital for an exploratory operation. The doctor told us that there were three bones in the ear that you needed to be able to hear, and two of mine in the right ear had been destroyed by the infection. He said I’d never hear in my right ear again.  A few days later, I told my mother that I could hear fine out of both my ears. The doctor gave me a hearing test and confirmed it.”  His healing was one of the miracles that led to Katharine’s canonization.

Life is unpredictable and doctors can be wrong!  Twenty-five years ago, Sandra Norman’s OB told her she should abort her unborn child.  They refused, but asked a priest to be at the hospital when their daughter was born so that she could be baptized. The grieving couple also picked out a coffin and dress for their daughter’s burial.  Their daughter Rachel now is 25 years old, has a college degree, and is engaged to be married. Though her inherited kidney disorder continues to be a struggle, she is glad to be alive.

Incredibly Stupid

Democrats are determined to obstruct the nomination of the eminently qualified Judge Gorsuch, because, as Kamala Harris put it, he “has consistently valued legalisms over real lives.”

Since “valuing legalisms” is Dumbocrat for “following the law”, what these clowns are really saying is that they won’t vote for Gorsuch because he’s such a good judge.
