Keep Praying for Judge Gorsuch’s Confirmation

Liberals like Senators Chuck Schumer and Richard Blumenthal are doing everything in their power to stop Gorsuch from getting confirmed, because they would rather judges play favorites.

This is very dangerous, very elitist thinking!

We need judges like Justice Gorsuch who believe their job is to uphold the rule of law and the Constitution.

On Gorsuch and Such… Day Two

The Democrat clown show lasted more than 11 hours yesterday.  As a public service, I’m posting an assembly of short clips of stalwarts such as Feinstein, Franken, Durbin, Coons, and especially Senator Pat “Depends” Leahy. Rush gave him that nickname because the first time he was on the Senate Intelligence Committee (how’s THAT for an oxymoron?), he purposely made Reagan’s plans to attack Libya public. He was removed from his committee assignment then, but as is always the case with pestilence, he returned. Watch the clip of this bald fraud and see if you can tell whether or not he’d been drinking or at least hung over. “Mumbles” would be a more appropriate moniker.

FNN: Sen. Leahy Asks Gorsuch About GOP Treatment of Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court Pick

They did their best to trap Judge Gorsuch, smear him or sully his record. What was first and foremost, apparently, was that they wanted a promise from him not to try to overturn Roe v. Wade.  Abortion is the sacrament to the religion of Liberalism and must be protected at all costs.  There were light moments ,and you must see what his obituary would be. Any senator who votes against this very good man should be beaten severely with their own bank book.

Timely new tv ad ‘The Ginsburg rule’ destroys Dems about to pound Judge Neil Gorsuch

“Democrats are attacking Judge Neil Gorsuch because he won’t promise to support their political agenda,” a voiceover in the ad begins. Then in a “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” moment, the ad pivots to the 1993 confirmation hearings of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, during which she refused to answers posed to her by senators — in excess of 70 times.

Her repeated refusal prompted then-Sen. Joe Biden to come to her support.  “You not only have a right to choose what you will answer and not answer, but in my view you should not answer a question of what your view will be,” he told her during the course of the confirmation proceedings.

Gorsuch Makes Minced Meat of Dick Durbin’s Gotcha Attempt

Senators on the Judiciary Committee took turns spending thirty minutes grilling Gorsuch.

When it was Sen. Durbin’s (D-IL) turn to bat, he flamed out. Gloriously.

“Do you believe that there are ever situations where the cost of maternity leave to an employer can justify an employer asking only female applicants and not male applicants about family plans?” Sen. Durbin asked.

To which Gorsuch sternly replied, “Those are not my words and I would never have said them.”

“I didn’t say that,” said Durbin.

“I asked you if you agreed with this statement.”

“And I’m telling you I don’t,” Gorsuch scowled.

Dem Senator Tries, Fails To Pin Down Gorsuch On Hobby Lobby Ruling

The case, which Gorsuch heard as an appeals judge and which was later heard by the Supreme Court, asked if for-profit corporations could bring claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).  In this instance, the owners of Hobby Lobby said they had a religious objection to providing certain forms of contraception to their employees. Gorsuch ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, attracting criticism from Coons.

WATCH:

Coons asked Gorsuch why he ruled in favor of allowing for-profit corporations to bring claims under the RFRA.

Gorsuch responded that the law as drafted did not distinguish between natural persons and corporations, and that corporate personhood was a well-established principle of law. He further explained that the government conceded in that case that a non-profit corporation could bring a RFRA claim.

Coons rebutted that it was a “big leap” to take those facts and apply them to for-profit corporations.

“The position you’re advocating is a fine position,” Gorsuch responded. “It’s a respectable position. It’s a good position. It was adopted by precisely two justices of the Supreme Court.”

Gorsuch was referring to the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. Two of the four dissenters in the case, Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, declined to join the portion of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s opinion, which held for-profit corporations or their owners cannot bring claims under the RFRA.  Only Ginsburg and Justice Sonia Sotomayor have taken the position RFRA doesn’t apply to corporate entities.

Coons then pivoted away from Hobby Lobby and asked generally about judicial deference to the beliefs of religious objectors.

What Gorsuch Would Want In His Obituary

The 49-year-old jurist then produced an at-times emotional two-minute monologue of what he would like his obituary to to be. It’s an assignment he gives his students at the end of each semester, Gorsuch told Sasse.

“They hate it. They think it’s corny. Well, it might be a little corny,” Gorsuch said with a hint of self-deprecation.

He continued:

“And people want to be remembered for the kindnesses they showed other people, by and large. What I try to point out is, it’s not how big your bank account balance is, nobody ever puts that in their draft obituary, or that they billed the most hours, or that they won the most cases. It’s how they treated other people along the way. And for me, it’s the words I read yesterday from Increase Sumner’s tombstone. And that means as a person, I’d like to be remembered as a good dad, a good husband, kind and mild in private life, dignified and firm in public life. And I have no illusions that I’ll be remembered for very long. If Byron White is as nearly forgotten as he is now, as he said he would be, I have no illusions, I won’t last five minutes; that’s as it should be. The great joy in life, Shaw said, is devoting yourself to a cause you deem mighty before you are thrown on the scrap heap. An independent judiciary in this country, I can carry that baton for as long as I can carry it, and I have no illusions I’m going to last as long as you suggest, and that’ll be good enough for me.”

The Gorsuch Hearings

The democrats are in a tough spot. They have to come up with arguments against a man of such wisdom and character that he is almost unassailable. But assail him they will, because their voting base are a bunch of rabid, hate-filled ignoramuses created by a media who make sport out of ruining the lives of anyone who doesn’t take them seriously. Harry Reid, the miserable sludge who obstructed any republican efforts to govern, pulled the ‘nuclear option’ to get hundreds of O’s far left judicial nominees confirmed. He stopped just short of SCOTUS appointments. He has come to regret that, as the GOP are willing to use it to get Trump’s people confirmed. Gorsuch, a strict constitutionalist, is replacing the late Antonin Scalia. The real frenzy will not begin until the president is tasked to replace one of the leftist judges, like Breyer or Ginsburg. That would tip the balance on the court in favor of the Founding Fathers and away from ruling by personal opinion.

Get Ready To Rumble! Gorsuch Hearings Set To Begin

The Senate Judiciary Committee will begin the grueling public vetting process of Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, tomorrow.
In a bid to place hurdles in the way of Gorsuch’s confirmation by the Republican-controlled Senate, Democrats on committee have said they will probe him on several fronts based mainly on his record as a federal appeals court judge and a Justice Department appointee under former President George W. Bush.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz said Sunday on the Face the Nation that Democrats can try to block Gorsuch, but they will not be able to tank his appointment.

NARAL-Pro Choice, Planned Parenthood and a coalition of 50 other liberal groups sent Democratic lawmakers a letter in advance of this week’s confirmation hearings telling them to buck up.
‘Democrats have failed to demonstrate a strong, unified resistance to this nominee despite the fact that he is an ultra-conservative jurist who will undermine our basic freedoms and threaten the independence of the federal judiciary,’ the letter stated. ‘We need you to do better.’

Dem Senators want to take Gorsuch down to satisfy base, but unlikely to succeed
Barring something extraordinary, Gorsuch will be confirmed for the Scalia Seat.


Vanity Fair eventually cuts to the chase, noting one teensy-weensy problem: “In the long run, the Democrats have no power to block Gorsuch, except in the unlikely event that a solid majority of Americans comes to view anyone but Garland in Scalia’s seat as an affront to the Constitution.”

Gorsuch Confirmation Presents Democrats With 2 Difficult Paths

When it comes to the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, Senate Democrats appear to have two options: Get out of the way or get run over.
Senate Republicans’ enthusiastic backing of President Trump’s nominee ensures majority support even before the confirmation hearing begins Monday. But the Republicans also hope that enough Democrats are won over by Judge Gorsuch — or recognize the inevitability of his confirmation — that they join in efforts to head off an explosive showdown over a filibuster.

Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch an ‘extremist,’ Feinstein’s office says

Feinstein’s office criticized him for his hostility to the Supreme Court’s doctrine of deferring to government agencies’ interpretations of unclear federal laws. He has called the doctrine a violation of the constitutional separation of powers.

The release said he could also further weaken the tottering government regulations of political campaign financing. In a 2014 opinion, he called the act of contributing to campaigns “a basic constitutional freedom” entitled to the highest level of constitutional protection.

Resist We Much

What is happening here is blatantly obvious. The democrats, allied with a hyper-partisan judiciary, are conspiring to completely neuter President Trump by interfering with every lawful order he issues. What they are attempting to do, in essence, is usurp his authority to run the country by leftist judicial fiat. Trump must ignore this illegal restraining order to take back the powers granted to him by the Constitution to defend this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

From Powerline:
What we are seeing here is a coup: a coup by the New Class; by the Democratic Party; by far leftists embedded in the bureaucracy and the federal judiciary. Our duly elected president has issued an order that is plainly within his constitutional powers, and leftists have conspired to abuse legal processes to block it. They are doing so in order to serve the interests of the Democratic Party and the far-left movement. This is the most fundamental challenge to democracy in our lifetimes.
The battle lines are clearly drawn. What Watson has done has nothing to do with the law. It is a partisan coup, and must be resisted.

More on the Left’s Judicial Coup
Two federal judges, one in Hawaii and one in Maryland, have enjoined execution of President Trump’s travel order. These court orders are obviously illegal and unconstitutional. Under the Constitution and federal law, the president has the power to suspend immigration from any and all countries if he deems it in the best interest of the United States.
The net result is that Trump has been stripped of his constitutional and statutory powers to protect the nation through control of who is permitted to enter the country.
***
As discussed in prior posts, the power to control who enters the country is uniquely a presidential power. Not anymore, unless the Supreme Court acts to restore that power.
I disagree to this extent: the moment the next Democratic president is inaugurated, the executive’s constitutional powers will magically be restored and, indeed, extended.
Arguably President Trump has a duty to disregard the Hawaii and Maryland courts’ illegal injunctions, and direct the executive branch to carry out his order. His obligation under the Constitution is to exercise his powers in defense of the American people.

THIS WILL UNDOUBTEDLY END UP AT THE SUPREME COURT, EVEN BEFORE THE HEARINGS ON NEIL GORSUCH. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT THE COURT MAY EITHER DECLINE TO HEAR IT OR SPLIT 4-4, LEAVING THE TRO IN PLACE. IT’S A SAFE BET THAT, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A SLAM DUNK, THERE IS NO WAY BREYER, BROOMHILDA THE WITCH, OR HER TWO UGLY SISTERS WILL GIVE A FAIR DECISION WHEN IT COMES TO DONALD TRUMP.
THE SUPREMES VOTED 9-0 IN 2012 TO HOLD OBAMA’S NON-RECESS RECESS APPOINTMENTS TO THE LABOR BOARD WERE UNCONSTITUTIONAL. WHAT DID HE DO? RAISE HIS MIDDLE FINGER, SMILE, AND SAY ‘FUCK YOU,’ AND HIS HAND-PICKED UNION THUGS WERE STILL SERVING WHEN HE LEFT OFFICE. TRUMP MUST DO ESSENTIALLY THE SAME THING, BUT WITHOUT THE FINGER. OUR SECURITY DEPENDS ON IT.

Trump’s Refugee Order Looms Large Over Gorsuch Hearing
The ongoing legal battle over President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugee and migrants may dominate next week’s hearings on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
“You can find example after example of Judge Gorsuch siding against workers even in the most dire circumstances,” she said.
Trump’s revised executive order on refugee and migrants, and two new court orders temporarily enjoining its enforcement, could hijack the hearing and dominate the proceedings.

Judge Considers Ordering President Donald Trump to Double 50,000 Refugee Inflow to the United States
A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.
Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.

5 Problems With The Hawaii Judge Halting Trump’s Travel Ban
The executive order, which was a loosened version of a previous version struck down by another court, suspends entry to the United States for 90 days from nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It also suspends the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days.
“This is an unprecedented judicial overreach,” Trump said of Judge Derrick Watson’s order, during a rally in Nashville.
Whether you agree or disagree with the executive order — and there are plenty of people on both sides of that debate, for many different reasons — the judge’s ruling has some serious problems. Here are a few of them.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD THIS… THAT’S WHY YOU COME HERE

Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque
Imam born and raised in Egypt, migrated to U.S.
Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.
One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikh’s mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trump’s ban were allowed to go into effect.
Hawaii’s Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaii’s claim that it amounts to a “Muslim ban.” The state’s attorney general, along with co-plaintiff Elshikh, claims the ban would irreparably harm the state’s tourism industry and its Muslim families.

SPLIT IT: Congress Considers Splitting The 9th Circuit
Judges Sidney Thomas, Carlos Bea, and Alex Kozinski give testimony before a House panel on splitting the 9th Circuit.
Democrats on the subcommittee argued that the administrative and logistical concerns Republican lawmakers raised were little more than a thin veneer masking their ideological hostility to the court.
“Like clockwork we see proposals to split the 9th Circuit whenever it hands down decisions with which conservatives disagree,” said Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler.
“The 9th Circuit has long been in the sights of Republican politicians,” he added.

Be Careful What You Wish For

One thing is clear. If the miserable slug from Nevada had not undone the filibuster in his zeal to get rafts of Obama judicial nominees, President Trump would not have a single cabinet member confirmed. Not a one.

  • Education Secretary: Betsy DeVos confirmed on a voted 51-50.
  • Attorney General: Jeff Sessions confirmed 52-47.
  • HHS Secretary: Tom Price confirmed 52-47.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the injunction against the travel ban was upheld by the ninth circuit by a margin of 3-0.

Sessions had not yet been confirmed and the lawyers from the Justice Department who argued the case were holdovers from the Obama regime, so there was no real motivation to put much effort in their argument.

It is paramount that the Republicans get Neil Gorsuch confirmed to SCOTUS before the case is heard there. With a 4-4 split, if Kennedy sides with the originalists in deciding such action is within the purview of presidential power, the lower court ruling would stand. It will eventually be reinstated, but the when is unknown.

Dianne Feinstein Regrets Filibuster Reform as Senate Confirms More Trump Cabinet Picks
The Senate confirmed Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State with 56 votes; Jeff Sessions as Attorney General with 52 votes; and Betsy DeVos, who barely reached a majority of 51 votes without Vice President Mike Pence’s deciding vote to confirm her as Secretary of Education.

“As we look back, it may well have been better to not have changed the rules.”

Some Democrats remain unapologetic about the decision, however. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) told IJR he maintains that filibuster reform was essential:

“At the time I thought, ‘I might serve here with a Republican president and I might serve here when there’s a Republican majority.’  We were in a situation where positions that were really important were going vacant for years at a time.”

9th Circuit Refuses to Reinstate Immigration Pause; ‘We Beat You,’ Gov. Tells Trump
Moments after the ruling, Trump tweeted, “SEE YOU IN COURT,” adding that “THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

In response, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat who leads one of the states that challenged the ban, said: “Mr. President, we just saw you in court, and we beat you.”

The court battle is far from over. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court seems likely. That could put the decision in the hands of a divided court that has a vacancy.

Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, is unlikely to be confirmed in time to take part in any consideration of the ban, which was set to expire in 90 days unless it is changed.

Schumer: ‘We Think We Have Done a Real Service to America’ by Vilifying Trump’s Nominees
Senate Democrats flew a restaurant worker all the way from Los Angeles to Washington on Thursday, to help them portray President Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary not only as “unqualified,” but also as someone who steals money from workers; looks the other way when workers are sexually harassed; forces people to work for free; punishes them for calling in sick; and fights against raising the minimum wage.

“Puzder called us the worst of the worst and the bottom of the pool. I work myself to the bone just to survive. Why would we want someone who think so little of workers in charge of policies that could impact all of us?” the allegedly victimized woman asked.

On Thursday, Schumer told the same news conference, “It’s disgraceful to put ‘secretary of labor’ and ‘Puzder’ in the same sentence, given his views.”

Schumer said Democrats hope they can force the withdrawal of Puzder’s nomination, but even if they can’t, it’s all about laying the groundwork to stymie the Trump administration:

While You Were Sleeping, Tom Price Was Confirmed As Health And Human Services Secretary
When Jeff Sessions was confirmed to be the 84th Attorney General of the United States Wednesday night, a vote was held to move Rep. Tom Price’s (R-GA) Health and Human Services nomination forward for a final vote.  Around 2:15 A.M this morning Price was confirmed in a 52-47 vote.

Liberal Ninth Circuit Court Is Overturned in Recent Years 80% of Time

The Ninth Circuit Court ruled against President Trump and continued to block his travel ban on Thursday.  The Ninth Circuit is the most liberal court in the country — and is the most reversed court in the country.

2010, perhaps seeking to reclaim its position at the top of the heap, the Ninth Circuit was reversed a startling 19 times (79 percent), three times as many reversals as most circuits had cases before the Supreme Court. The same pattern continued in the 2011 (71 percent) and 2012 terms (86 percent), when the Ninth Circuit was reversed more than twice as many times as most circuits had cases before the Court.

The Sincerest Form of Flattery

FIRST OFF, I’D LIKE YOU TO LIFT UP CHRISSY’S WARRIOR PRINCESS IN PRAYER; SHE WAS ADMITTED TO THE E.R. LAST NIGHT WITH PREMATURE BIRTH PAINS. SHE’S ONLY 35 WEEKS AND NEEDS GOD’S INTERVENTION. I PRAY FOR MY DEAR FRIEND EVERY DAY. WE’RE BOTH PRETTY MUCH HOUSEBOUND, BUT AT LEAST I CAN GET OUT IN THE MORNING.

Actually, more like great minds think alike. Or, if you will, two people looking at a duck and saying: ‘That’s a duck.’

Liberals are dreadfully simple to figure out once you understand their goals. Go full Alinsky…to hell with the rules, just seize power by any means that justify the outcome. I came across this in the New York Post and said to myself: “Self, this looks eerily familiar.”

Democrats’ empty anti-Trump stunts have made the Senate a circus
Perhaps the sound and fury will cease by the time Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination comes up. At least nine Democratic senators have said they oppose a filibuster, and that includes well-left-of-center types like Chris Coons (Del.), Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn.).

On the other hand, the party’s base hasn’t yet started demanding scorched-earth tactics on the high-court fight, and the senators have plenty of time to “discover” reasons to change their minds.

Until top Democrats are willing to stand up to the angry left, the kabuki theater will continue.

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS LOST ITS MIND… AND ITS SOUL
My theory is that meeting back in early January laid the groundwork for how Congressional Democrats were going to prevent Donald Trump from being able to assemble his Cabinet.

I think they nailed down the strategies they would use to demagogue, slander and delay the Cabinet confirmations.

But it’s more than that.

I also believe it was this meeting with the Community Organizer that laid out the plans for the protests and obstructions we’ve been witnessing from Democrat leaders over the last few weeks.

Look, nothing the Democrats do is spontaneous. Nothing.

And all of it would come to a head as soon as the Community Organizer-in-Chief was safely out of Washington. That way, Obama could appear to remain out of the fray.

But trust me, this fray has his fingerprints all over it.

It’s just the kind of agitation and disruption Barack Obama perfected during his time in Chicago.

No president has ever had so few cabinet members confirmed at this late date, just as no president has been confronted with such open talk of assassination and impeachment.

Speaking of which, have you heard a single Democrat decry the talk of assassination? Have you heard a single Democrat denounce the violence carried out by so-called protesters?

In any case, the responsibility of leadership eludes him. Democrats created their own problems by blindly agreeing to all of Barack Obama’s ultra-liberal policies, and the fed-up response of Republican voters was to nominate Trump.

Democrats scrap all-nighters after DeVos, Sessions votes

Senate Democrats on Wednesday abandoned the idea of holding another all-night “talk-a-thon” to protest a key Cabinet nominee of President Trump’s, after holding two back-to-back all nighters to protest two other nominees.

Democratic leaders didn’t offer a public explanation for the move, but it came after their all-night debate sessions Monday and Tuesday failed to move the needle on Trump’s picks.

They voted FOR Gorsuch in 2006

Democrats are preparing for all out war against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is leading the way.

But when Gorsuch was nominated to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals by President George W. Bush in 2006, he was confirmed unanimously (95-0) in the Senate.

This Is Already Tiresome

Tucker Carlson was interviewing some blow-dried Ken-doll wannabe congresspunk from California last night and this clown would not stray from his talking points no matter what Carlson asked him. Thankfully, the network panned to a shot of the daily protests outside the Supreme Court.

I may be the only person in America who noticed some idiot holding a pre-printed sign that had the word “OPPOSE” at the top with a blank white space underneath it. After Trump made his nomination known, they printed “GORSUCH” in the blank space with a Sharpie. They were prepared to protest whoever the president picked, even if it was the Wizard of Oz.

As with their shameless behavior regarding the Cabinet nominees, they are going to fight this appointment tooth and nail. In the end they will likely lose, although it is a case of one originalist replacing another. The all-out war will occur if one of the leftists, probably the Notorious RBG retires from the bench. She has already stated she’s not going anywhere until there is a Democrat president to replace her.

Think: The Dems wheeling the late and unlamented Robert C. Byrd on a hospital gurney for an important vote, or Tim Johnson who suffered a brain aneurism and was absent for almost two years and never replaced, since he represented North Dakota, which would have elected a Republican in his stead.

They’re playing a dangerous and potentially disastrous game. Tingles Matthews claimed that not a single Democrat senator will vote to confirm. I disagree. There are 12 senators from red states up for re-election in 2018. The playbook says there will be 5 or 6 democrats who will be given permission to confirm as long as there are not the requisite 60 votes to uphold the filibuster. They all sing from the same hymnal: ‘Lord, save my ass.’

[CtH: I am still puzzling over why RBG didn’t retire when Obama was in office.  She’s older than dirt and is unlikely to survive the 8 years Trump could be in office.  Probably she, like the rest of the Ds, thought Hillary was a shoe-in.  Oops!  Cuz replacing Scalia with Gorsuch is no biggie.  Replacing Ginsburg with someone the Republicans like will tip the bench back toward traditional values and put Roe v. Wade seriously at risk.  We can pray!]

Chris Matthews: Gorsuch Vote Will Go To A Filibuster; Democrats Will Not Vote For Him, “Not A One”

“I think this is going to come down to a sad denouement,” Matthews said Tuesday night. “I think it’s going to take 60 votes to get this approved and I think the Republicans will have their rank-and-file 52 votes will be there. But I don’t think the Democrats are going to give them a single vote which mean this will go to a filibuster.”

[CtH: Why is Tingles still talking?]

Chris Matthews on Democrats who vote for Gorsuch:  He will “be on that court for 30 years … they will have to answer for this guy.”

And since, according to Matthews, no Dems will vote to confirm, the nomination will fall short of the required 60 votes.

This Insurrectionist disagrees. No matter how much McConnell reveres Senate tradition, he will not let such a qualified jurist, and Trump’s first Court nominee, go down to ignominious defeat. If push comes to shove, I predict that McConnell will invoke the nuclear option, and Gorsuch will be confirmed on a simple-majority vote.

IOW, THE DEMOCRATS MUST CHOOSE WHAT HILL THEY WANT TO DIE ON

Here’s Why It Would Be Very Stupid for Dems to Block Neil Gorsuch
Since January 20, many Americans have been daydreaming about the possibility of rebuilding the government from the ground up, like an episode of Designated Survivor. But as fun as it would be to watch Democrats tantrum their way into blocking Judge Neil Gorsuch‘s Supreme Court nomination, it’s a bad idea and would follow in the Republicans’ dangerous precedent.

Dems to Filibuster SCOTUS Pick, Claim Seat ‘Stolen’: “We will use every lever in our power to stop this.”
Senator Merkley declared the seat could go to none of Trump’s picks because it was “stolen,” presumably by the Russians.

“This is a stolen seat. This is the first time a Senate majority has stolen a seat,” Merkley said in an interview. “We will use every lever in our power to stop this.”

Neil Gorsuch: Conservatives Praise Trump’s ‘Home Run’ Supreme Court Pick

GORSUCH MEETS WITH SCALIA’S WIDOW AND HIS SON


Conservatives were effusive in their praise on Tuesday evening for President Donald Trump’s choice for the U.S. Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.

Protesters Arrested In NYC Demonstration Against Trump Supreme Court Pick
WONDER HOW LONG BEFORE THEY DECLARE THIS AGGRIEVED VICTIM WILL BE LABELED A ‘CIVIL RIGHTS ICON’?

[CtH: Where do they get these people who have TIME to go to all these protests?!]

Among those arrested was Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner – the man who died on July 2014 on Staten Island as police tried to arrest him for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. A grand jury later declined to indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who used a takedown move on Garner that many have described as a chokehold.

THIS WAS FROM YESTERDAY:
Once Again, Dems Deny Vote on Sessions… Where is GOP Leadership?
The Senate Judiciary Committee, once again, delayed voting Tuesday morning on the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general, pushing it back to Wednesday.

Therefore, the people of the United States remain without the proper attorney general, causing confusion and misdirection in the branch of government that ultimately provides safety and security to the American way of life.

BREAKING NEWS! PETE BRINGS YOU THE LATEST. THIS IS GREAT!!!

GOP changes Senate rules, approves Trump cabinet picks
A Democratic boycott couldn’t prevent President Trump’s cabinet picks for Treasury and health from gaining approval by the Senate Finance Committee.

The Republican-led committee changed its rules to allow it to operate without the boycotting Democrats and approve Steve Mnuchin for the Treasury post and Tom Price as Health and Human Services secretary.

The next step will be for the pair to be confirmed by the entire Senate.

THE REPUBLICANS MAY HAVE FINALLY GROWN A PAIR!

A Video Primer

There is much to put together on the news of the day: Trump nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme court. I have not yet completed the task of putting things in order. However, in an effort to entertain early risers I’m posting some YouTube videos pertinent to current events.

Morning Joe Panel Blasts Democrats for Not Coming to Terms With Being in the Minority

[CtH: I must say again to the older gentleman who declared that nobody under 35 shares Trump’s values … WHEN WILL DEMOCRATS LISTEN?!  I have six kids under 35.  They like Trump.]

Law Professor: Trump’s Immigration Ban Constitutional, Admin ‘Absolutely’ Had Right to Fire AG

[CtH: Turley – “It’s very inconsistent.”  Professor, you make the mistake of thinking Obamacrats care about law, policy, or values.  They don’t.  They care about personalities, feelings, and destroying America.  In that sense, the woman’s actions were totally consistent with what the Justice Dept did during Obama’s tenure.  Dearest thinks she’s been promised a pay off for pulling this stunt.  I’m inclined to agree.  Look for her to run for office with big Democrat money support.  https://polination.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/its-not-about-law-policy-or-values/%5D

Hatch Blasts Democrats for Boycotting Votes on Trump Nominees

Sen. Wyden Was Against Partisan Obstructionism Before He Supported It

Democrats Boycott Confirmation Votes on Tom Price and Steven Mnuchin

Sen. Hatch: ‘This is the most pathetic thing I’ve seen in my whole time in the United States Senate’

I REMEMBER WHEN THE DEMOCRATS IN WISCONSIN PULLED THE SAME STUNT SO AS TO AVOID HAVING A VOTE ON NEUTERING THE TEACHERS’ UNION IN WISCONSIN. A BUNCH OF THEM STAYED IN A MOTOR INN DOWN HERE IN TOWN. EVENTUALLY THEY HAD TO RETURN AND THE REPUBLICAN-LED LEGISLATURE TOOK AWAY MANDATORY DUES DEDUCTIONS. GIVEN A CHOICE, MOST OPTED TO KEEP THE MONEY IN THEIR OWN POCKETS RATHER THAN GIVE IT TO THE BOSSES TO BE PASSED ON TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.

Dem Senator Compares Trump’s Immigration Order to Japanese Internment Camps

[CtH: Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) lies AGAIN about how the executive order targets Muslims.  It DOESN’T.  And for crying out loud, if banning immigration from SOME COUNTRIES is comparable to rounding up Japanese-American citizens into internment camps, then where the heck was the outrage when Presidents Carter and Obama DID THE SAME THING?  They’ve lost their minds.  Or maybe they never had any.]

Hatch Praises Judge Gorsuch’s Nomination to Supreme Court

Pelosi: It’s a very hostile appointment… Lovely family, I’m sure. But as far as your family is concerned, uh, uh, if you breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine or in any other way interact with the courts this is a very bad decision.

[Pelosi says Gorsuch is “well outside the mainstream of American legal thought.”  By this, she means he doesn’t legislate for Progressive social change from the bench.]

VIOLENT BARBIE JEEP RACING!!
PETE DARES TO BE DIFFERENT.

MUCH MORE AFTER MY NAP
