Supreme Court needs judges like Gorsuch
because America has leaders like Schumer

Washington Examiner, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/20/2017 4:49:09 PM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., last Wednesday dragged out his feeble effort to block Neil Gorsuch´s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Ahead of today´s confirmation hearing, he trotted out three people, representing supposed "victims" of Gorsuch´s jurisprudence. He hoped to demonstrate that Gorsuch is hostile toward workers and cancer patients, and takes the side of "the powerful" and corporations against the "powerless" little guy. Never mind that in all three cases, one of which was decided unanimously by a three judge panel that included one of former President Bill Clinton´s appointees, Gorsuch scrupulously applied the text of the laws as

"Leader" is part of schumer´s job title but it has nothing to do with what schumer actually is. The correct adjectives would get me banned.

Gorsuch applied the law? Liberals hate that.

Yes, Mr. Schumer only likes the law when it works in favor of his political agenda, but what is so much more important is what it says about the corroded character of today´s Democrat Party that such frankly unethical and unprincipled men and women as Mr. Schumer, Mrs. Pelosi, Tom Perez, Keith Ellison, Donna Brazile, Mr. Obama and both Clintons are Democrat leaders. You really have to go back to Jimmy Carter for the last well known honest Democrat. Yes, Carter´s political philosophy borders on the unhinged, but he is who he is, and is not a basically venal or dishonest person. I think all of the good folks have been driven away by the venality, the dis-ingenuity and the corruption of the Democrat Party.

Victimhood is like heroin to Democrats. They thrive on it and it makes them who they are.
It is the basis for their entire existence. Always fighting for this group and that group and all the rest. All magnificent suffering victims of America, the birthplace of evil and wrongdoing to the rest of the world.

In a report for Politico Magazine, Jack Shafer and Tucker Doherty analyzed the geographical data of where journalists work and determined that the so-called liberal “media bubble” is even worse than suspected. The liberal bubble has only grown worse as the news business has transition from print media to online publications. As Shafer and Doherty report, “Today, 73 percent of all internet publishing jobs are concentrated in either the Boston-New York-Washington-Richmond corridor or the West Coast crescent that runs from Seattle to San Diego and on to Phoenix.” From Politico Magazine: As the votes streamed in on election night, evidence

Janet Napolitano, President of the University of California, is not only missing in action as her premier campus is embroiled in free speech and threatened mob violence, she has run an operation that just received a scathing audit. Patrick McGreevy of the Los Angeles Times reports: The administration of the University of California system pays top workers salaries and benefits significantly higher than that of similar state employees, and failed to disclose to the Board of Regents and the public that it had $175 million in budget reserve funds while it was seeking to raise tuition, a state audit found

Fresh off his successful Supreme Court battle, President Trump will now try his luck stocking the federal appeals court with conservative jurists — and Democrats are mostly powerless to stop him. First up is Judge Amul R. Thapar, whom Mr. Trump has tapped to sit on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and who will sit for his confirmation hearing in the Senate on Wednesday. Progressive activist groups are preparing for a fight, saying Judge Thapar has several controversial rulings on his record. (Snip) Mr. Trump has an opportunity to reshape the federal judiciary.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump paid his respects for Holocaust Remembrance Day with a visit to the National Holocaust Museum just a few blocks away from the White House. There he denounced anti-Semitic attacks saying: “It has been on display in the most sinister manner when terrorists attack Jewish communities or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction. This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism.” Yet all of the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) omitted his remarks from their evening reports. After scouring the networks’ websites using the keyword “holocaust,” I discovered that

President Trump is once again trolling the media — and looking to turn tables on the big mockfest they had planned for him — by skipping the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday. Instead of spending the evening getting skewered by a hostile Fourth Estate and a politicized comedian, Trump has opted to throw a party of his own with thousands of his supporters in Pennsylvania. He tweeted, “Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!” That means much of the elite media will have to hang up their tuxes and stilettos and

The internet giant said it would demote “low-quality” websites and let users report offensive results after criticism that neo-Nazi groups and hoaxers were “gaming” the company’s search engine.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the

Former President Barack Obama on Monday partly blamed the nation´s splintered politics on a media structure that lets people only listen to or read media outlets they agree with, which prevents them from hearing the other side. "Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his

Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their

A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future

Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country.
