Democrats cry foul about losing the SCOTUS pick that ended up going to Gorsuch, but they have no one but themselves to blame.

If RBG dies within the next two years (six if DJT is reelected), the SCOTUS will be conservative for a very long time.

There's actually a crazy scenario whereas DJT doesn't get his second pick, Dems win back the Senate and won't let him nominate anyone, RBG dies, DJT gets relected, and then the SCOTUS has a conservative majority with a 7-member bench.

It starts a precedent where neither side will allow a president to nominate anyone. Two decades later, it's just Gorsuch, Roberts, and Sotomayor left alive and they're trying to outlive each other because last man standing makes all the rules.

Hahahhaaaa! Stranger things have happened! At least as strange, anyways. Nine justices is not a law. I seem to remember that FDR attempted to name enough justices to finally get a court that would approve of his more progressive ideas.....I believe he had upwards of a dozen.....

Yes...FDR tried to pack the court and was stopped. Alot of fascinating history with him and what he tried to pull off. Many believe he prolonged the Great Depression with his policies and was bailed out by WWII.

That is correct about Commie King FDR.

The Republicans are going to gain at least 2 seats in the Senate and hold the House.

Trump's second pick will be confirmed before the min-term elections. There's going to be a full court when it reopens in Oct.

while any of the finalists are good, I would like to see him push Amy Coney Barrett forward... I think she could really turn the Dems/libs in their heels ...

07-Jul-18
I am leaning that way myself, JTV, but thge reality is no one can know what they will do on any given issue in the future.

I find it funny that Soros-Demons are so sure that RvsW is already under attack but there is no threat to the 2nd A.

Did Hatch let the she-cat out of the bag?

"And I will devote all my energies to ensuring that we confirm the kind of Supreme Court justice America needs: a justice who says what the law is, not what she wants it to be; a justice who calls balls and strikes instead of swinging for the fences

- Orrin Hatch"

"I would like to see him push Amy Coney Barrett forward..."

She is my pick as well.

From: bad karma

In the legal world, a lot of people use "she" rather than "he" so Hatch's comment is likely meaningless.

I agree, Barrett my choice as well. Hope she is the pick, but I think she will be the pick with President Trump’s next pick.

A good article on Kavanaugh ... http://www.lifenews.com/2018/07/06/supreme-court-finalist-brett-kavanaugh-called-more-conservative-than-justice-scalia/

This is a good article about six justices that are considered to be top candidates. I found the last one particularly intriguing.

From: JTV

Very good HA/KS ...... While my original thought was going with Barrett, Kavanaugh has over 300 cases he's ruled on, and every one has been looking at and staying within the Constitution... no radicalism there ... no legislating from the Bench ... tough choices ... they all are good.... the dem/lib heads will explode no matter who is picked ...

Yeah - forcing them to live by the same law(s) we do.

The very thought of it...

I believe Trump will announce Thomas Hardiman as his next pick.

I have a feeling that once Trump gets his next pick in, RBG will step down since she’ll never see a case go her way ever again. Since she likes to rule with emotion rather than law.

Hmmm....never thought of that angle Fivers. Interesting...........

one way to get Donnelly out of the Senate... he's a leftover Obamabot as it is ... I'd like to see the State go back to two conservative Senators like we use to have

Scorched earth or bust, if the dems don't have a uber liberal Supreme Court, something they were banking on with sHillary, they have nothing. Look at the meltdown in progress on the left.
