Et tu, Gorsuch?
Et tu, Gorsuch? A little over three years into a lifetime appointment, and he’s already speaking for Justice Ginsburg when it comes to matters of transsexualism and forgotten all about Justice Scalia’s textualism.
No matter how hard we try, our “conservative” judges belly-flop into “strict constructionist” poseurs and weak-kneed judicial activists faster than Chief Justice Roberts can rewrite Obamacare into a tax. I mean, you try to keep these “originalist” jurists on a philosophically sound path. You teach them “right” from “wrong.” You instill in them a respect for the law and the importance of always telling the truth. You can’t be with them all the time, though. You know they’re being tempted by strange leftists to rule by emotion and always let the “ends justify the means,” but you tell yourself, “we can count on a judge described by many as Justice Scalia’s natural successor, right?” Right? read more
After disappointingly siding with four liberal justices on immigration and deportation, Gorsuch appears to be leaning toward allowing Trump’s travel restrictions.

Report: Gorsuch, others ‘leaning’ toward Trump’s travel restrictions
So how did Justice Neil Gorsuch – the newest face on the Supreme Court – do in Wednesday’s arguments over President Trump’s “travel ban”? OneNewsNow sought answers to that question.
“Neil Gorsuch asked some very pointed questions of [lead Hawaii attorney and former acting solicitor general of the United States] Neal Katyal,” says John Malcolm of The Heritage Foundation. Malcolm was present in the courtroom for Wednesday’s proceedings. read more

On Tuesday the Washington Times reported that Senator Tom Udall (D–NM) proposed a compromise for P
resident Trump and the Republicans. Udall suggested that rather than Trump nominating Neil Gorsuch to the supreme Court, he instead simultaneously nominate both Gorsuch and Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland to the High Court.
He advanced the notion that president Trump “should meet privately with the court’s current eight justices and see if any of them are retiring. If one of them is planning to step down at the end of this term in June, Mr. Trump should promise to nominate Judge Garland — and he and Judge Gorsuch could be voted on at the same time.”
As an odd aside, Tom Udall, son of the late Mo Udall, democrat of Arizona, who served in Congress for 30 years, is second cousin to Senator Mike Lee of Utah. A liberal hack like Tom Udall, with a CR “Liberty Score” of ‘F’ and a conservative voting record of 4%, comes from the same family tree as does Mike Lee, the only Senator with a perfect 100% “Liberty Score.” Small and weird world isn’t it.
Does anyone else see what is happening here? This is classic “good cop – bad cop,” and I guess Udall has decided to play the good cop in a cesspool of democrat bad cops. read more
