Gorsuch confirmation to Supreme Court certain after Senate goes ‘nuclear’

Republicans used the “nuclear option” to pave the way Thursday for Judge Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed to the Supreme Court, adjusting the Senate rules to break a Democratic filibuster and deliver President Trump a major early victory.

A final confirmation vote is expected Friday, but Judge Gorsuch’s fate is no longer in doubt — he will become the ninth justice, filling the seat left vacant more than a year ago by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Democrats fought feverishly to try to thwart Mr. Trump and Judge Gorsuch, mounting the Senate’s first partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee. They mustered 44 senators’ support, which usually would be more than enough to sustain a blockade.

Republicans, though, said the filibuster was a striking breach of tradition and flexed their 52-seat majority to rewrite the rules, using a tactic Democrats pioneered in 2013 to apply to lower federal court judges and executive branch appointments.

    What makes you think judges and officials will follow the Constitution? They have all taken the oath to uphold the Constitution but, few of them do it. Give me Term Limits, a balanced budget and 60,000,000 babies back.

    GREAT DAY, NOW IS THE OLD DRUNK LADY WOULD RETIRE, THIS WOULD GIVE OUR GREAT PRESIDENT ANOTHER SEAT.

    YOU ALL AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    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.

    We don’t need term limits or new laws! We merely must demand judges and officials enforce Supreme Constitution Law as required by their absolute 2nd oath allegiance and Article 6 requirements of holding office! That mandates defending the Constitution exactly as written without anything to the contrary; without ANY MENTAL reservation or purpose of evasion; against ANYNONE!! They committed to full time absolute allegiance to oath and Constitution!

    By all rational accounts, Gorsuch has and will continue enforcing the Constitution as required by Allegiance and Article 6, which is opposite the demand of progressive democrats who are united in a current rebellion against the duly elected presidency, the Constitution, and survival of the USA! It is totally opposite the treason against the Constitution by recent progressive Supreme Court judges wo have advocated and enforced their decisions contrary to Supreme Constitution text! By any Constitution definition, they are acts of Allegiance betray the aid/comfort Constitution enemies within their organization… highest acts of treason in the land.

    Ironically, NOT ONE CONGRESSPERSON HAS ACTED TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AGAINST THIS CLEAR HIGHLY ORGANIZED REBELLION! No one has called Schumer or anyone else down on their claimed threats against “their” “established law”… which in reality is “TO THE CONTRARY OF SUPREME LAW TEXT”! NOT ONE will acknowledge Amendment 14-1&3&4 which mandates removal from office without impeachment and impounding any money used in those crime of insurrection, rebellion, or comforting enemies of the Constitution! No allegiance bound person has any free speech, press, or otherwise right to advocate or act against the CONSTITUTION! ENFORCE IT OR BE DAMNED BY OUR OWN IGNORANCE!

    Notes – references
    The Constitution IS defined by Article 6 as, “SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND … ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY NOTWITHSTANDING… AND ALL EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL OFFICERS, BOTH OF THE US AND SEVERAL STATES SHALL BE BOUND BY “ALLEGIANCE…” which is the 2nd oath “…defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic… bear true faith and allegiance… without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion… will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office…”! That’s unequivocally true to each word, by Webster’s “old” definitions… AND IT TRUMPS ANY AND ALL “ESTABLISHED LAW “TO THE CONTRARY” BY MAN! Stop arguing with the enemy… “TRUMP” RICE!

    Amendment 14 Section 3 “No person shall… hold any office… having previously taken an oath… …(who) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”, with physically removing any offender from office and locking them up to prevent further damages until trial.

    Amendment 14 Section 4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…”! That’s PERSONAL LIABILITY & RECOVERING all funds EXPROPRIATED… impounding personal wealth and assets of offenders who engaged in AIDING/COMFORTING aliens, criminals, and those engaged in rebellion! NO LAW USURPS WORDS OF SUPREME LAW!

    It’s about time the right stood up to the left. Senate & House both continually capitulated to obummer which makes me a strong supporter of term limits.

  • Humble Servant says:

    It is a shame to think a democratic politicians job is to just stop the president from doing anything. I believe this two party form of government is not in the best interest of the American people any more. We the people need to seriously consider the quality of people we elect to represent us. Restrict there terms and eliminate their golden parachute when they leave. If we intend to live in the disturbed world produced by the likes of the Obamas and we keep going down that path we will cease to exist. The current Democrat politicians are trying their hardest to drive us off the road to that end and not too many people are seeing it that way. Educate, Educate, Educate and fix our education system…

  • John Lock says:

    Democrats had a really bad week, now must go home with tail between legs and explain to base how they now have zero power and can no longer pass any progressive measure. Nor can they block and Republican cuts and policy changes.

    At last; a tiny step towards draining the swamp; first you gotta get rid of the alligators!
