Supreme Court War: Battle Joined!

Posted February 1st, 2017 by Iron Mike

It was the moment Democrats had feared for a year,  – the moment Trump named a Scalia protégé to the Court.  Every word would be criticized….
Until….the Master Showman set them back on their heels.

Having Scalia’s widow Maureen sitting in the front row was a master stroke!   What kind of left-wing crap can you spout with the Widow Scalia sitting there?


But by sundown tonight the left – both politicians and pundits, – will be in hyperbole overload.

They will examine every half-inch of Gorsuch’s life,  to include old girlfriends and his wife of 20 years….  Any shadow of a misstep will do,…and some may try to make an issue that Marie Louise Gorsuch was English – born in Britain,…as if that could somehow cloud the Judge’s future decisions. 

They’ll hate that she’s a registered Republican.

The man to watch for these next few weeks is 74-year old Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,  – 32 years in the Senate – and not overly popular with Conservatives.

For years Mitch chaffed in the minority GOP while the Senate was run by Tom Daschel and Harry Reid…. He knows the ropes. In the end,…if Democrats conduct anything more than a token filibuster, he will use the “Nuclear Option” – and change the Senate Rules to allow confirmation by a mere 51 votes.

Mitch isn’t worried about the voters back home.  In 2014 he beat primary challenger Matt Bivens 60 : 35,  then won the General election by 56%.  He doesn’t run again until 2020, when he’ll be 78…..

It’s the Democrats and RiNOs in Class I who must face the voters in just 21 months who must be careful that they don’t get pinned with the label “Do-nothing Obstructionist!”   Come January 2019 they could be unemployed.

Folks,  you are living in interesting times!

Sit back,  smile,…watch the show,…and thank your GOD that it wasn’t Hillary last night naming a judge!

    “What kind of left-wing crap can you spout with the Widow Scalia sitting there?”

    The DEMOCRAPS never disappoint when it comes to unethical/non-traditional ways to lower the bar.

    The methods Dingy Harry Reid used to hollow out another bill and inserting Oysmal Care into it and then later on establishing the nuclear option are good examples.

    Classy, precise and clearly the President and conservatives put on a first rate show last night at 8:00pm and with all blessings, Neil Gorsuch will be on the bench quickly!

    It is great to see the nomination of Gorsuch, and yes, Trump did put on a masterful performance. This guy has an impeccable record and will follow the Constitution as is; not as a living-breathing document that the progs & democraps like to think it is, depending on what looney left wing tran-queer-it-murderous muslime-hollyweird-freakazoid cause or flavor of the month is.

    Although this guy is as clean as a houndstooth, I’m sure it will just be a matter of time before that troll, Gloria Allred will find some skank stripper or porno worker to come up with some scandalous allegation that Gorsuch called for an escort service where he wanted to be spanked in a diaper. Maybe not; Allred is a troll and stupid, but maybe not that stupid.

    Finally the TV news is fun to watch.

    Mitch McConnell single-handedly wrecked his own credibility and that of the Senate when he refused to even hold hearings for Merrick Garland—a moderate judge who, like Gorsuch, has an even temperament and is respected as a person. That shouldn’t matter. He is an originalist who thinks American law can only be interpreted as written in the 18th century—as though we don’t have shifting norms or evolving values!

    Republican appointees have been the majority on the Court for over a half century now; that McConnell will be able to have ignored Garland for A YEAR and thrust Gorsuch onto the bench is a scary proposition for how our republic’s political machinery operates.

    I doubt there’s any other justice who willingly gives up his or her seat during Trump’s administration; they don’t want a madman with a second chance to make his usual impression.

    Aw Snowflake,…you’re letting everybody see how butt-hurt you’re feeling.

    Here is a CLUE: Obama himself could have nominated Neil Gorsuch – instead of that left-wing toady Merrick Garland,…and Republicans would have STILL refused to consider it.

    By early 2016 – a year ago – Americans were SICK of everything Obama.

    We’d watched the withdrawal from Iraq, the red lines in Syria, the growth of that “JV” ISIS, the Benghazi Massacre, Fast & Furious, ObamaCare shoved down our throats, and two racist AGs abuse the law and pillory the cops. We wanted nothing more from Obama – except his departure in disgrace!

    Sit back now and watch how ADULTS and Patriots run government….

    What “Snowflake” obviously does NOT realize is that the Constitution, AS WRITTEN, does more to protect his rights and the rights of all his looney buddies than ANYTHING the progressive left can come up with.

    The Constitution grants ZERO rights – instead it acknowledges that rights come from God (or by virtue of our humanity, if you want to go the Ayn Rand route), and that the SOLE purpose of government is to protect and secure those rights.

    Keeping in mind, always, that the smallest minority that needs protection from the majority is the INDIVIDUAL. Indeed, no other type of rights exist: they are individual always and only, and NEVER belong to a group.

  7. SpecialSnowflake

    Catherine, do you think the second amendment as written is an individual right or a group right? The text refers to the “need” for a “well-regulated Militia,” but plenty of right-wing groups like the NRA read an individual right into it. Do you think the NRA is being originalist in its reading of the second amendment?

    Mike, if Obama had been able to run for a third term—even though I think two terms is just fine for any president to be in power—there is no question that he would have trounced Trump. A true landslide victory, as opposed to the one Trump “won.” We had a flawed candidate; we chose someone who was next in line rather than someone who inspired. Don’t worry; we’ll get it right in 2020 and the worst president (already!) we’ve had since at least Hoover will be gone. I just need the other justices to hang on until then, because who gets to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court is one of my top priorities in deciding for whom to vote.

    I would be fine with this deal: the Republicans filibustered Garland, an honorable man. The Democrats should treat Gorsuch with the same lack of courtesy, despite his Mister-Rogers-like personal qualities. The Senate should agree on allowing the Supreme Court to run itself down to seven members, meaning that the next vacancy on the Court would also not be filled. That vacancy is likely to come from the liberal wing of the Court, given actuarial tables, so everything would be reasonably balanced again and the Senate would be able to reset from McConnell’s horrible decision.
    ========================================================

    Well Snowflake,…you certainly are FULL of …yourself….

    AND FYI, the 2nd refers to both our COLLECTIVE and our INDIVIDUAL right to keep and bear arms. It also implies a COLLECTIVE and INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY for each citizen to be ready – as part of the Militia – to stand and if necessary – FIGHT.

    Are you trained and armed, and ready to do your part?

    FLAKE –

    1.) Catherine is entirely correct and YOU AND YOUR ILK ARE 100% WRONG….the founding fathers were Christians, more than 1/2 of them had degrees in theology. They were also historians.

    2.) The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written in the context of the times. In colonial days, militias were composed of INDIVIDUALS WITH THEIR OWN PERSONAL FIREARMS WHO GATHERED TOGETHER IN THE COMMON DEFENSE.

    3.) NRA is a grass roots organization. I’ve been a member myself since 1976, before you were born. THE NRA WAS TOTALY DEVOTED TO IMPROVING AMERICAN MARKSMANSHIP FROM ITS FOUNDING IN 1871 AND WAS NOT LEGISLATIVELY ACTIVE UNTIL 1975 AFTER IT WAS BLIND-SIDED BY THE GCA OF 1968.

    4.) THE ELECTION OF 2016 WAS A REFERENDUM ON OBYSMAL AND ON THE SUPREME COURT. IF OBYSMAL RAN HE WOULD HAVE BEEN TROUNCED. IF YOU SUBTRACT THE RAMPANT VOTER FRAUD TRUMP ALSO WON THE POPULAR VOTE. OBYSMAL WAS THE WORST POTUS IN U.S. HISTORY BY EVERY CRITERIA AND CARTER WAS THE 2ND. BOTH WERE DEMOCRAPS.

    5.) Keep dreaming, Flake. BY 2020 THE DEMORAT PARTY WILL HAVE ALIENATED ENOUGH OF THE ELECTORATE TO PREVENT IT FROM WINNING ANOTHER ELECTION FOR AT LEAST 2 GENERATIONS. TRUMP WILL BE RE-ELECTED and IN 2024 PENSE WILL BE ELECTED AND WILL SERVE 2 TERMS.

    6.) MERRICK IS JUST ANOTHER UNQUALIFIED ANTI 2NDA LEFTY IN THE TRADITION OF THE ELENA KEGAN WHO NEVER PROFESSIONALLY SAW THE INSIDE OF A COURT ROOM BEFORE SHE WAS NOMINATED TO THE SC. Gorsuch will be confirmed no matter what thanks to Dingy Harry violating over 100 yers of tradition in the U.S. Senate and using the nuclear option. BTW he also lowered the bar to pass Obysmal’s un-affordable care act by hollowing out another bill and ramming down our throats w/o a single GOP vote.

    REMEMBER, FLAKE, THE RIGHT IS RIGHT AND THE LEFT IS WRONG!

    ============================

    Well Told Kojack!

    You only forgot to mention the NRA was founded by Christian Preachers – specifically to arm freed slaves – so they could defend themselves from the Democrat Party – i.e. the night riders of the KKK, – who would lynch “uppity niggers”….

    How many Democrats even know the sordid history of their party…?

    The last comment above is so accurate it hurts. The demorats have no clue of the history of their party and what has resulted from their “plantation” approach to governing. All they want is to remain in power, not improve the lot of average Americans and the country.

    I also have been a member of the NRA since before SNOWFLAKE entered this life and the comments in the thread above are accurate.

    As for the approval of Mr. Gorsuch to the court, well old Dirty Harry Reid has ensured that will happen. Question now is will Mitch McC invoke the NUC OPTION to do it? If that happens a lot of demorat politicos will not be happy with old Harry. Tough.

  10. SpecialSnowflake

    You guys. Come on, now.

    Yes: the Democratic Party owns a sordid history of being pro-slavery during the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the institution of Jim Crow laws. But guess which party all those bigots jumped to when LBJ passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964…

    It’s hard to argue with someone who thinks there was actually “rampant voter fraud” and who thinks writing in all caps makes one’s point more right, so I won’t. But Kojack, I will delight in saving your response for a few years to see how accurate your predictions prove.

    ===============================
    RRB Readers BEWARE!!

    More REVISIONIST HISTORY from our DemoCRAP SNOWFLAKE!

    LBJ didn’t pass the Civil Rights Act – Republicans did!

    LBJ signed it despite vehement Democrat objections,…and justified his actions with a famous quote:

    “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference… I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years”.

    FLAKE – I will delight in the CONTINUED misery of the collective left when my predictions come to pass…..especially after the destruction of my beloved country for these past eight years and before. If they are un-hinged now how will they react then?

    Hey Flake to prove Mike’s point, what party did Senator Byrd belong to? And you hypocrites make a big deal out of David Duke’s endorsement of Trump?!?!? That’s rich!

    THE RIGHT IS RIGHT AND THE LEFT IS WRONG!
