Gorsuch Gets Boost From Democrats In Hearings
Daily Caller, by Kevin Daley

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/20/2017 4:42:49 PM

Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court got a boost from two Democrats who testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, as deep partisan entrenchment emerged during Monday’s hearings. Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, an Obama-appointee, appeared before the committee to praise Gorsuch’s record. Katyal urged Democrats to support the nomination, while Bennet was more circumspect. Bennet is under intense pressure from Colorado’s legal establishment to vote for his fellow home-stater. Though he stopped short of announcing his support for Gorsuch, he did reiterate his support for a full hearing and

We watched as the liberal Democrat Senators gave their opening statements at the confirmation hearing. No doubt the country is seriously split in two politically, as the Democrat Senators appeared to be from Mars as far as the very liberal political agenda they were pushing, clearly favoring judges who would move the liberal Democrat political agenda through the courts instead of following the US Constitution or laws passed by Congress. There is no doubt that none of them would ever be elected if they had run for office in flyover country or the States that voted for President Trump.

I actually only watched one person´s prepared statement. To all you dRATS sycophants, millennial snowflakes, unemployed, feminist, hippies, druggies, BLM domestic terrorist, etc., you deserved to suffer her before your trip to Perdition.

As I listened to Dianne Feinstein´s direct assault at not just Judge Neil Gorsuch´s nomination, but President Trump, all she said for the whole time is the same dRATS litany of grievances used for every conservative candidate (and election babble) in my lifetime. That means, besides having put the millstone of abortion around her own scrawny neck and the lemmings that follow her, NONE of these problems have ever been properly addressed by Congress in all this time to be resolved. (I´m talking more than one generation, easily).

Even more remarkable was the total "fake news" summations of any of those "injustices" coming out of her mouth. She blames the rich which her and her husband are totally a member of in Kalifornia. There is no doubt left to the knowledgeable that she and her cohorts want an activists and not a constitutionalist"choice that Neil Gorsuch is. To attempt to belittle a great jurist before her brings shame to the current selection process for letting it happen.

This is not the one they are going to die on the hill for.
It´s when they have to replace Bryer, Ginsburg or Kennedy that will result in the blood spilling.
Unfortunately for them, the nuclear option WILL be used.

Gorsuch will be confirmed. Next week, I reckon. But, the next one, likely Ginsberg´s replacement probably in the post mid terms, will be confirmed by a super Republican majority.

The only living person to ever shoot an American president has been enjoying a quiet and uneventful life in the six months since he was released from the psychiatric facility where he spent the past three decades. John Hinckley Jr., 61, was released from St. Elizabeths on September 10 of last year and into the care of his 91-year-old mother Joann, who the court has ordered him to live with for at least one year. Halfway through that time, Hinckley has done nothing remarkable and is practically a ghost according to a new story about the would-be assassin in New York

The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before

A moment of levity snuck into Tuesday´s confirmation hearing for Neil Gorsuch, President Trump´s nominee for the Supreme Court, when a Republican senator brought up a beloved science fiction comedy "The Hitchhiker´s Guide to the Galaxy." Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked Gorsuch, "what is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything?" — a topic which Cruz said Gorsuch has some familiarity. Gorsuch´s answer was "42." The question is a reference to the "Hitchhiker´s Guide," in which a supercomputer built by aliens spends 7.5 million years contemplating the answer to that question. While the computer, known

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences

Students at the University of Notre Dame have reacted strongly to the announcement that Vice President Mike Pence will serve as this year’s commencement speaker. University President John Jenkins announced the decision to host Pence as the speaker at this year’s graduation event in a press release. Jenkins stated that it “is fitting that in the 175th year of our founding on Indiana soil that Notre Dame recognize a native son who served our state and now the nation with quiet earnestness, moral conviction and a dedication to the common good characteristic of true statesmen.” Although there have been no calls

A group known for its successes fighting digital wars, notably net neutrality, is offering $15,000 to activists who quit their jobs and form "A-Teams" to jump into a war on President Trump´s agenda. Fight for the Future, started in 2011 as a digital activist group, on Monday issued the offer with this eye-catching opening: "Terrified about Trump? Quit your job, start an A-Team. We´ll fund it." "We´re currently taking applications for an initial launch of the project, and will be providing a few select teams with funding, guidance, and support," said Evan Greer, campaign director for Fight for the Future.

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzeinski spoke to Variety for an interview (out today) about their relationship with the Trump White House and Brzezinski recently deciding to ban Kellyanne Conway from Morning Joe. When asked about that decision, Brzezinski said she doesn’t think anyone should be having the White House counselor on anymore: I feel even more so that everyone should ban her. I’m surprised that these little acrobatic games are played with her on live national television. I think it denigrates what we do. It’s clear she doesn’t bring anything to the table.

As a member of The Daily Signal team, I took offense to The Washington Post’s recent questioning of our “legitimacy” as a news organization. The Washington Post began its story stating that, “In an age of partisan media, the lines between ‘partisan’ and ‘media’ can sometimes blur.” I wonder if the reporter has taken a look at just how partisan some of our country’s media behemoths actually are. Here is a summary of the ownership, lobbying, and political contributions of several of America’s largest media companies. ABC is owned by the Walt Disney Co., which has spent over $70 million

Judge Neil Gorsuch lamented the politicization of the Supreme Court nomination process during Tuesday´s Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. Facing questions from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., about a "dark money" campaign to boost his bid for the high court, Gorsuch sounded distraught about the politicization of his nomination. He noted a previous judge coming before the committee was able to smoke cigarettes during his hearing. "There´s a great deal about the process I regret," Gorsuch said. "I regret putting my family through this." Gorsuch´s wife sat directly behind Gorsuch as he made the remarks as she did for the first day

Companies that help to build President Trump´s controversial border wall could be banned from doing business with San Francisco. Local left-wing politicians will introduce the legislation on Tuesday, in a bill similar to several proposals cropping up around the country. Supervisor Hillary Ronen and Supervisor Aaron Peskin have proposed the ban in order to ´fight´ for the values they ´hold most dear´. (Photos) The bill would ban companies that apply to work on the wall during the bidding period, regardless of whether they actually get a contract. ´It is time to move beyond symbolism and use the power we have

Dissident Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) officials created a digital “Forum of Hate” (FOH) using highly offensive email texts against an agency whose upper management they viewed as worried only about getting bonuses for themselves and whose workforce they considered degraded by excessive Affirmative Action hiring. The high-level employees on the FOH included attorneys, administrative law judges (ALJs) and managers who sent dozens of inflammatory emails per day using their government email accounts, then complained about how they had to work late. The previously unreported emails occurred in 2015, according to a draft report prepared by the inspector general (IG).

Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday. Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military

Several Senate Democrats were unified in deriding originalism as a judicial philosophy during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court justiceship Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking Democrat of the committee, described originalism as a "very troubling” jurisprudential approach. The Framers, she added, intended for the Constitution to be continuously reinterpreted over time (emphasis added): “Judge Gorsuch has also stated that he believes judges should look to the original public meaning of the Constitution when they decide what a provision of the Constitution means. This is personal, but I find this originalist judicial

Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.

Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move
