Today we pass along another reason to delight in having President Trump making executive decisions. As you read “Power Move: Gorsuch Opts Out Of High Court Labor Pool.” by Kevin Daley, Legal Affairs Reporter for the Daily Caller you’ll be provided insight into the independence and work ethic of Trump’s newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. He has decided to reject the practice of granting overreaching authority to the justice’s shared law clerks in what is referred to as a “labor pool,” to analyze and make recommendations regarding which cases the justices will hear. With this move, Gorsuch joins Justice Samuel Alito, who opted out of the system in 2008.
The U.S. Supreme Court is the primary reason the still shell-shocked Democrats remain unable to accept the fact that their scandal plagued candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost the presidential election. Barack Obama provided her with assistance as did Socialist billionaire George Soros and the far left celebrity crowd. She was poised to be Obama’s third term. It was a certainty she would follow his leftward court lurches. Her husband Bill was so moved when he announced his nomination of ACLU lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg, he had to wipe away tears.
Then on election night Americans spoke as stunning vote totals came in from unlikely blue states. Liberals cried and conservatives cheered. The Hillary supporting Washington Post had to admit “we were wrong,“ when it became clear their assessment of Donald Trump was far from accurate. Their mea culpa was “Donald Trump just blew up the electoral map.”
The angst was far greater than Hillary’s defeat. There were the now crucial repercussions of Donald Trump’s massive victory. First and foremost is the Supreme Court and Trump’s ability to reconfigure the court for the next thirty years.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan appointee who has delighted in being the unreliable “swing vote” reportedly is considering retirement. He turns 81 later this month. Stephen Breyer, a Bill Clinton appointee celebrates his 79th birthday in August. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 84, has been in ill health for years.
The prospect of President Trump filling those vacancies has sent shock waves through Congressional Democrats. Their latest scheme is to question the president’s mental fitness to serve out his term.
Though the president has served less than 6 full months in office, over two dozen Democrat lawmakers have signed on to a bill that would create an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity. Their goal is to declare the President of the United States mentally incompetent under Section IV of the 25th Amendment and remove him from office. Never forget, it’s all about the Supreme Court.
Another item to add to your ‘never forget list’ is just prior to the end of Obama’s term, AZ Sen. Jeff Flake, saying, “It’s time,” urged his fellow senators to confirm Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court nominee. RINO Flake, who repeatedly announced his refusal to vote for Donald Trump was featured in Hillary Clinton’s campaign ad.
Actual Republicans are grateful Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and cheer his appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the high court. We should all remember the words and actions of Republican pretender Jeff Flake on Election Day.
