SCOTUS nominee Gorsuch grilled by legion of lessers & UPDATE

Unanimously confirmed to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals by the Senate in 2006

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is among the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who have turned the U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a side-show. Imagine 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge Neil Gorsuch, a man of acknowledged integrity having to endure being grilled by Blumenthal, who is best known for lying about serving in Vietnam. His 2010 admission came cloaked in defiance as he said,  “On a few occasions I have misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility, But I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.” 

Could there be a more outstanding example of Demo Speak?

Not only does Blumental, a former elected Attorney General, want Judge Gorsuch to repudiate the president who nominated him, he virtually needs to swear a blood oath against him and his progeny in perpetuity.

John McCain and Jeff Flake’s go-to Democrat, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, playing to his fellow left wingers, has vowed to fight Gorsuch and said he has a “strong presumption against” the nominee. Schumer is the man who has actually called forchaosin order to get his way. Liberals are still smarting over Obama’s failed recess appointment of Merrick Garland to the high court.

But as conservative commentator Katie Pavlich reminds us, when Neil 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. Chuck Schumer, along with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and a number of other Democrats in the Senate, voted in approval. 

Stay vigilant. Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, a pseudo Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, met with Democrat Merrick Garland, lame duck Obama’s Supreme Court recess appointee and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

Remember that colossal betrayal as Flake, who repeatedly declared he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, attempts to reconfigure himself as a conservative in advance of his 2018 reelection. Don’t be conned.

Jeff Flake an embarrassment at Gorsuch SCOTUS hearing

Proving he is unfit for the senate position he was elected to and will be running to retain in 2018, Jeff Flake, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wastes Judge Neil Gorsuch’s time and that of interested viewers, with ridiculous questions supplied by his sons and other relatives.

This was an example: “Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses, or 1 horse-sized duck?”

Acquaint yourself with a couple of his stellar sons. This is Tanner. This is Austin.

    Democrats and their kindred spirits (such as the two senators who supposedly represent Arizonans), are no longer content to have differing opinions. They have become aggressive proponents of dangerous ideologies. So much so, in fact, that they view the crucial Supreme Court appointment as an opportunity for gamesmanship. This appointment will have far reaching consequences and is extremely serious business.

  2. Anthem Al says:

    I just clicked on the link to the Senate Judiciary Committee and see that Jeff Flake isn’t the only member with a name that’s appropriate to their shenanigans. There is also an Idaho Senator named Mike Crapo. No kidding!

    Trump traveling with McConnell today to push Ryan-don’t-Care on US.
    Ryan is a snake in the grass Obama lover.

    (Oh, dear Lady said the serpent, with a grin.
    You knew I was a snake when you let me in.)

    Meanwhile, story today in NYPost that Obama’s Library AND Museum will cost at least 1.5 Billion dollars.
    The Museum will “tell the story of B&M’s lives.
    (So that should require approx. the square footage of a phone booth, eh?)

    On March 31, the ACLU will be holding a fundraiser, Live on Facebook. Such highly-regarded anti-Americans as Tom Hanks will be co-hosting the long event.
    The money raised will be used to defend people who’s “rights have been taken away by Trump”.

    Will That Include the Two Teenage Males from Guatemala and El Salvador who forced a 14 year old girl into a public high school bathroom in Montgomery County, Maryland and raped her orally, vaginally, and rectally? Will the ACLU represent them?

    They had only been in the US for less than one year.

    And This:
    A 29 year old US Marine has been arrested and charged with cyber assault after he tweeted a message to some ultra-liberal “journalist” who was on Tucker Carlson’s FOX show recently.

    The ultra-lib so-called journalist, who admittedly had had a few drinks, was “sleep deprived” and had Not taken his prescription medication.

    He and his wife are claiming that the Tweet sent by the US Marine caused the Lib Journo to have a seizure.
    I AM NOT KIDDING.

    Do you understand the implications of this?

      An Obama library and museum? A much more fitting ‘memorial’ would be a golf course with a replica of Air Force One fully prepared for the always vacationing Obama’s and their entourage alongside it.

  4. East Valley Conservative says:

    Jeff the Flake was in the bag for Merrick Garland because he was so certain, and certainly hopeful, that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency and he wanted to ingratiate himself to her as he had with Barack Obama.. What a surprise when this egomaniac was proven wrong and Donald Trump was swept into the White House by people like me — fed up with the McCain’s and Flake’s who have never represented conservatives.

  5. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Speaking of lessers – John McCain sent his life partner out to embarrass himself threatening Trump with impeachment at Gorsuch hearing. Lowlife behavior or vile hatred?

  6. Kimball says:

    Everything’s a joke to grin boy Jeff the Flake. He should be ashamed, but he’s not smart enough to know it.

  7. East Valley Conservative says:

    Jeff Flake is a fool. He was willing to confirm Obama’s Supreme Court choice Democrat Merrick Garland. By his own admission, he voted against Donald Trump, which clearly was a vote for Hillary Clinton. It will give me great pleasure to vote against Jeff the Flake.

  8. Seen It All says:

    What an embarrassment!!! Selecting a Supreme Court Justice is serious business with long ranging ramifications. Why is this clown on the Senate Judiciary Committee?

    He has nothing to qualify him unless you count his job as a registered foreign agent for a uranium mining company in Namibia, Africa that had ties to Iran. Mull that over in view of Iran’s nuclear capabilities given the green light by Barack Obama and John Kerry. with a wink and a nod from Obama’s BFF, Jeff Flake.
