ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES … GORSUCH SWORN INTO THE SCOTUS …
This is a good day for the Supreme Court of the United States and America.
Neil Gorsuch on Monday became the 101st associate justice of the Supreme Court and President Trump’s first high court appointee.
Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath to Gorsuch in the sun-soaked White House Rose Garden shortly after 11 a.m. Hours earlier, Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath in a private ceremony in the justices’ conference room at the court.
Kennedy said the oath Gorsuch took “reminds us that we as a people are bound together, that we as a people find our self-definition, our respect, our heritage and our destiny in the Constitution.”
Gorsuch’s wife, Louise, and two teenage daughters were present for the swearing-in ceremony.
Gorsuch, 49, was a member of the Colorado-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He is filling the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat, which has been vacant for more than a year after Republicans refused to hold a hearing or vote on former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, DEMOCRATS WILL RUE THE DAY IF THAT ACT IN A PARTISAN MANNER IN VOTING FOR SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH …
Democrat Minority leader Schumer said yesterday on Meet the Press that Democrats and Republicans should come up with a mainstream nominee instead of President Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Sorry Chucky, you don’t get to dictate anything or make the rules. You are in the minority. In the famous words of former president Barack Obama when speaking to the GOP leadership after he won the presidency … elections have consequences.
As the Senate gears up to consider President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer predicted Sunday that “it looks like Gorsuch will not reach the 60-vote margin” needed to overcome a filibuster.
If the 60 votes aren’t there, Schumer argued during an appearance on “Meet The Press,” Trump should gather with Senate Democrats and Republicans to “try to come up with a mainstream nominee.”
“Look, when a nominee doesn’t get 60 votes, you shouldn’t change the rules, you should change the nominee,” said Schumer, D-New York.
Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell said that Neil Gorsuch would be elected to the SCOTUS in one way or the other. McConnell put forth the qualifications of Gorsuch and battled the liberal MSM who argued the Democrat side.
HOW PATHETICALLY SAD AND UNINFORMED HAS AMERICA BECOME?
As reported at The Hill, according to a recent C-SPAN survey only 43% of likely U.S voters could name “A” Supreme Court Justice. Wow, not all of them, not a majority of them, not even two. What a sad state of affairs. It really makes one wonder just how uninformed of an electorate we rally have in this country that less than half could not name one justice. Making matters worse, probably more than that percentage could name the judges from the final tear of American Idol. Take a good looks below folks, these would be the Justices of the Supreme Court, including the late, great Antonin Gregory Scalia.
What makes matters even more puzzling is that although the majority of respondents were unable to identify a member of the court, 90% of all respondents indicated they felt the Supreme Court had a key impact on their daily life. Let’s understand this, you have no idea the names of the people who impact your lives? HEAVEN HELP US!!!
Only 43 percent of likely U.S. voters can name a Supreme Court justice, according to a C-SPAN survey released Sunday.
The survey comes as President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, began confirmation hearings on Monday.
According to the survey, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was named more than her fellow justices, with 16 percent of those surveyed giving her name.
Chief Justice John Roberts followed behind, at 12 percent, and Justice Clarence Thomas was named by 10 percent of people surveyed.
The numbers drop off precipitously from there, with just 3 percent naming Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan were named by 1 percent, while no one among the 1,032 likely voters surveyed named Justice Stephen Breyer, who was confirmed more than 20 years ago under President Clinton.
Supreme Court Justice of the US Skipped President Trump’s Speech As She Has Done Every GOP President, But Attending Democrat One’s is AOK
ONE HAS TO QUESTION HOW AN INDIVIDUAL THAT IS SO POLITICALLY BIAS CAN ACTUALLY SIT ON THE HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND … SO MUCH FOR JUSTICE BEING BLIND.
Last night Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a no show for President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and it was expected. The 83 year old aging justice, appointed by Bill Clinton in 1993 had no issue attending his joint speeches to Congress, nor Barack Obama’s. However, she was a no show for any of President George W. Bush’s speeches and was AWOL last night as well for President Trump’s first Address to Congress. t is one thing for a justice of the SCOTUS to not attend any of the presidential joint speeches to Congress or the State of the Union events, but for a justice to only attend for Democrat presidents and not of the GOP makes one scratch their head as to how their judicial judgements could be considered not politically bias. It is troubling for a justice of the SCOTUS to only skip the joint speeches of a particular party, no matter which party it is.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg always hugged President Barack Obama before his speeches to Congress. She doesn’t even plan to attend President Donald Trump’s first one.
Ginsburg, who called Trump a “faker” during his campaign, intends to skip Tuesday night’s speech, leaving it to five of her colleagues to represent the court.
Chief Justice John Roberts will join Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan in attendance, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg confirmed. All are regulars at the annual event. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito aren’t planning to attend, continuing their past practice.
Alito hasn’t gone to a speech since 2010, the year Obama criticized the justices’ just-issued Citizens United campaign-finance ruling. Obama accused the court of ignoring a century of precedent, a claim that prompted Alito to shake his head and mouth “not true” as Democratic lawmakers directly behind the justices rose to cheer.
Ginsburg, a 1993 appointee of Democrat Bill Clinton, also skipped Republican President George W. Bush’s speeches. She attended all eight of Obama’s.
However, the poetic justice to this partisan justice will be when President Donald J. Trump nominates her successor.
A WARNING TO THE LEFT, GO AFTER GORSUCH AT YOUR OWN PERIL …
Bill O’Reilly opines, “If the left starts to smear Gorsuch it will be another nail in the progressive coffin.”
