Trump nominates Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court

Based on this New York Times article, he seems like someone who will respect the nation’s need for secure borders and controlling immigration. But also, he’s a Harvard Law School graduate; not some legal lightweight like Harriet Miers (who W’s own Republican Party refused to support).

If #NeverTrumpers had their way, Hillary Clinton would be President now, and she’d be appointing an extreme liberal who sees racism everywhere.

  1. #NeverTrump are a bunch of subhuman scum, but they have been exterminated so there is no need to worry about them. They are essentially the right wing equivalent to Jill Stein. In 2020 even TRS, RedState and the National Review will be supporting Trump. The Weekly Standard set will migrate over to the Dems.

    This is a good pick.

    Comment on Trump’s approval: In June of last year, McCain’s approval/disapproval in AZ was 30/54. He ended up beating his opponent 53.4 to 41.1.

    Trump’s current approval/disapproval numbers: 43/51. Trump is never going to have high approval numbers but do to the racialization of US politics I don’t see any reason why he can’t get 50% of the vote in 2020.

    • Otis, how about some strategizing over which seats in Congress need to be replaced in 2018. McCumstain and Grahmnesty obviously need to go. Paul Ryan is a useful cuck so maybe he can stay for now if only so that Reince Preibus is not offended, since Reince appears to be a genuinely good guy when serving the correct master.

      Ryan can be deposed in 2020 as the symbolic final nail in the coffin of #nevertrump, trucons, and general cucking of America’s conservatives.

      Who else needs to go?

      Democrats should make it onto the list as well. It seems like if Trump were to show up in Nancy Pelosi’s district, she to could be deposed because he would draw out every man, woman, and child of the silent majority in that district, to come vote against her.

      At the very least he could play a game with democrats where he endorses and supports the one he doesn’t want winning, thereby killing their chances.

      A lot can be done with his bully pulpit and near limitless supply of energy and funding. Unleash this human colossus on the knaves and traitors of our ranks!

      • Can’t tell if this is a serious comment or a joke …

        First of all, neither McCain nor Graham is up for re-election in 2018. Senators stand for election only every 6 years.

        Paul Ryan faced a primary challenge last year from a Trumpian challenger who called him on his immigration sellouts. His challenger (Nehlen) raised a bit of money, was praised by Trump, Sarah Palin and other anti-establishment crusaders, and got a lot of press. And Ryan beat by 84 to 16 in the primary.

        Paul Ryan is rich, well-liked and powerful in his district. If we want to primary him, we’d all have to move there and vote against him. Aside from that, he has his seat as long as he wants it.

        The Silent Majority in Pelosi’s district? I take it you haven’t spent any time in San Francisco? Even the married white parents there love Pelosi and hate Trump. She hasn’t endured a serious primary challenge or dropped below 70 pct of the vote in a primary or general election in decades.

        I agree with cutting down the traitors, but trying to primary people who aren’t even up for re-election or who won last time out with 85 pct of the vote is not realstic.

      • Re, pelosi’s 70% majority.

        Then Trump should endorse Pelosi’s and campaign on her behalf against the incumbent. Cause as much confusion and chaos as possible. Think outside the box here.

        Pelosi being driven out whether by a moderate challenger or an extreme leftist is win win. The extreme leftist would fuck everything up locally for those “nice” white families that hate Trump so much. Just like DeBlasio has fucked New York. Meanwhile a radical would be impotent in congress to effect actual change, much like Bernie Sanders.

        If a moderate democrat gets in then it just benefits our cause. I’d almost go so far as to say the extremist is better so as to punish the ivory tower constituents of their district.

      • NeverTrump within the GOP is what can be called a “greedy spoiler.” They are happy to ruin Trump’s chances when it’s low risk, high rewards. (They thought that Trump was sure to lose in 2016 and that they’d be the moral leaders of the GOP after his defeat.) But when the risks are high and the rewards are low, they’ll keep quiet and go along with what Trump is doing.

        If Trump messes up badly (I.e., he sleeps with a White House intern, gets into another Middle East quagmire, etc.), then eventually enough Republicans can turn on him for it to be a big problem.

        If he continues to do what he’s doing now, namely setting up Trumpist immigration policies while handing out red meat to hard core Conservatives (like the SC pick), then I think the Republicans will stick with him, especially if the Democrats remain so shrill and unreasonable.

      In all actuality, I think Schumer should try to strike a deal with the Republicans: the Dems will back Gorsuch to replace Scalia, but RBG will step down for Merrick Garland. Too bad RBG is so stubborn.

      The Dems have a great bench: Duckworth, Booker, Biden and Gillibrand would all be formidable in a national race.

      The Dems problem, the problem that the Republicans didn’t have in 2008 and 2012, is that white people absolutely despise them. And running on a platform of open borders, Black Lives Matter and mass Islamic immigration is not a good way to endear yourselves to white people.

      Kris Kobach has been frozen out because Kelly doesn’t want him for whatever reason. Trump needs to keep Kelly and Mattis happy because he needs their support to purge the military, intelligence community, judiciary and bureaucracy of globalists.

      • “Why do the Dems need a leader? The Tea Party had no leader and ultimately gave birth to Trump. ”

        Otis,

        This shows that you’re not too bright about human beings. All movements need a leader. The Tea Party went nowhere, because they didn’t have a leader (also, they were very cuck on lots of issues, they were simply libertarians who disliked Obama). That’s what happened to leaderless movements.

        But you yourself say that they gave birth to Trump. I happen to disagree with this 100%, but simply for the sake of discussion, didn’t you just concede my point?

        In case you are still to slow to see this, the movement only gained traction with the advent of a charismatic leader, who was willing to sacrifice and never give in.

        Got it? As long as the Dems are leaderless, they will be thrashing around without purpose. So I’m not too worried. I don’t think this will last forever. At some point a leader will arise from the populist wing of the Democratic party.

Everyone who is white and moderate to conservative will eventually have to accept Trump simply because the alternative is becoming so non-white, radicalized and inherently unAmerican. When the DNC is seriously considering Keith Ellison as chairman that tells you everything you need to know about their future. When liberals choose a token/radical for leadership they always try to sell it as an act of “progress”. Those of us on the right more accurately perceive it as a symbol of decline.

    • Racism is always bad and all around us; we know this from years and years of non-empirical theorizing at the highest levels. Most Whites are so full of racism that they don’t even know it, it is implicit; again something we know from years of non-empriical theorizing at the highest levels. There’s so much racism and it is so implicit, but denied, that most White people are filled with it and don’t realize that they are; again, knowledge obtained from years of theorizing. The only way to possibly tell if a White person is NOT a racist is if they are perceptive enough to grasp their own implicit racism and if they are apologizing for it 24/7 in words and deeds, preferably votes for the black favored political party.

      Gorsuch is White. Gorsuch was appointed by a non-apologizing White, therefore Gorsuch was appointed by a racist. Gorsuch is almost certainly a racist. Racism is the most unconstitutional thing ever (source: major media). If something empowers racism it is unconstitutional. Therefore, Gorsuch’s nomination is unconstitutional. He can’t be confirmed.

      • “Why would a straight man be honored to think that other people think (sorry) he gets shtupped up the ass? ”

        Because among left-wing morons having one’s fudge packed demonstrates that you’re sensitive, creative and, above all, a victim.

      • Yeah, I know that whole shtick. I still don’t get it. I think that being a left-wing man is simply a constant state of abysmal self-hatred. Note that most of the Bernie Bros were young and hadn’t gotten that memo yet, or if they had, internalized it. Or maybe they were rebelling against what they correctly perceived as hatred towards their skin & man-parts.

        Here’s hoping that they evolve into patriots!

  13. US Rep. Mia Love – While campaigning in 2012, Love had said that if elected, she would “join the Congressional Black Caucus and try to take that thing apart from the inside out.

    She described the mainly Democratic Caucus as characterized by…demagoguery. They sit there and ignite emotions and ignite racism when there isn’t. They use their positions to instill fear. Hope and change is turned into fear and blame.

    Love joined the Congressional Black Caucus in January 2015.

  14. Mia Trump – Love says she favors “fiscal discipline, limited government, and personal responsibility.”

    On the other hand – On October 8, 2016, Love issued a statement that she would not vote for Republican candidate Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election and urged him to withdraw from the race for the good of the party and the country.

  15. Great pick by Trump! Although he is by no means an intellectual, he has a lot of street smarts. He knows he has to make the TruCons happy. He needs to balance the Bannon and Ryan wings of the party.

    However, I’m getting increasingly nervous about the Cathedral. This isn’t a medieval government where Trump can clean house (or even the U.S. government of the 1950s). A vast, liberal Administrative State has been built over the last 60 years. The other two branches of the Cathedral, the Media and the Universities are overwhelmingly anti-Trump. So is most of Silicon Valley. I’m afraid they may eventually bring him down.

    If that happens, it’s time to adopt a Nick Land approach and go full acclerationist and put in Kamala Harris and bring the thing down.

    Lion – What is your estimate of Trump’s IQ?

    • He was smart enough to graduate from Wharton, but as people age their IQ diminishes. I doubt he’s as smart as Obama or Mitt Romney. But he’s certainly smarter than Joe Biden. And in fact, I think he’s smarter than VP Pence.

      • Is he smarter than Hillary? Trump’s children all seem very intelligent so he certainly has good genes.

      • I think each successive wife was less intelligent than the previous. So his first three kids are smarter than Tiffany (who is still smart enough to graduate from Penn and consider law school), but Melania and Barron aren’t in the same league.

      • Neither is Mensa material, but my impression is Melania is smarter than Marla.

    This isn’t good. That is alot of money for an organization that knows how to leverage its resources effectively through the Court system (which in our extraordinarily litigious country, can go a very long way). I’m curious to know how much CAIR has received in wake of this.

  17. A judge should rule if a law is constitutional based on that alone, not if they like the law.

    Do all judges who think Roe V Wade is unconstitutional also think states should outlaw abortions? Is there anybody who thinks abortion should be legal but thinks Roe vs Wade is unconstitutional?

    At the time of the founding the Fed govt really couldn’t do that much. The states really were more like separate countries. Slavery was legal to have if the state wanted it and people knew it. That’s why they needed an amendment to outlaw it.

    There was no question states could outlaw abortion if they wanted to when the constitution was written.

    Maybe the constitution is outmoded because I’ll bet most people don’t really see each state as separate.

    Is there any other country like ours that has the question on what the state or local govt can do versus what the federal govt can do?

  18. Lion,
    Sorry that I keep posting but now I’m getting REALLY nervous. It seems as if people are leaking the transcripts of the phone calls with Trump. The Cathedral is really going after him now. It’s only week two. The problem with Trump (and Bannon, Miller, etc.) is that they aren’t in control of the government. Trump isn’t Vladimir Putin. He doesn’t control the commanding heights of society. I think a coup (of some sorts) is coming. I think it will happen by June.

    • Those transcripts are pretty clearly fake. I wouldn’t worry mate. Take some time away from media. It’ll drive you crazy.
