Sen. Gardner Says We Need A Westerner On The Supreme Court

Some groups favoring more stringent gun laws refer to the same case when arguing that Gorsuch is unfit for the Supreme Court.

Gary Marx, a senior adviser for the group, said the goal of taking people from Gorsuch's life around to newsrooms is to "talk about who the judge is as a man". Tobi Young, a former Gorsuch clerk now practicing law in Texas, said Gorsuch adhered to the tenet that "any judge who likes every conclusion he reaches is a bad judge". This is an ominous position and one that undermines true religious freedom.

Gorsuch sided with the appeals panel to uphold the man's conviction. His willingness to work with others, respect colleagues with differing opinions and cross partisan lines to achieve a fair and balanced settlement is exactly the kind of thinking and attitude that is needed in Washington.

The Republican spending machine is adding dollars on top of dollars - the Judicial Crisis Network, the well-funded outside group doing the lion's share of the pro-Gorsuch advertising, has budgeted another $5.5 million to spend, and one pro-Trump nonprofit, Great America Alliance, on Wednesday unveiled a $3.5 million buy on top of that.

Of course, few people criticize Gorsuch for his temperament or qualifications.

It appears increasingly likely that Trump's directive will soon reach the Supreme Court. Additionally, all the parties participating in the case are highly motivated, and have the resources necessary to litigate the case all the way to the high court.

Like Gorsuch, Garland appeared to be the flawless Supreme Court candidate. Despite this, the Republican-controlled Senate blockaded Garland's nomination.

Grassley said that Democrats should be "satisfied" with the amount of information released so far.

Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" grabs huge $16.3M Thursday box office
After a solid Thursday night opening, " Beauty " is projected to bring in $140 million this weekend, according to analysts. Usually when you walk onto a set you can see the smoke and the mirrors , you can see the bones of how it was put together.

First of all, I understand Democrats' frustration. However, I also believe that government can not function if each party is always trying to seek retribution for past misdeeds.

Last week, the department turned over to the Judiciary Committee roughly 150,000 pages of documents related to Gorsuch's tenure there-and as The New York Times reported Wednesday, they show Gorsuch was "at the center of both litigation and negotiations with Congress" over issues including detainee abuses, military commissions, warrantless surveillance, and the Bush administration's broad claims of executive power. Revenge, in my opinion, can not be the operating foundation of our legislature.

The Supreme Court's 1984 ruling in Chevron v. NRDC says that in those situations, often murky, courts should rely on the experts at the Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies to fill in the gaps. These decisions effectively render the Court useless, as a split decision ultimately results in the Court upholding the lower court's decision.

Gorsuch's confirmation hearing begins Monday.

Vincenzo Iuppa, an attorney for the Missouri branch of the National Education Association, says Gorsuch has consistently ruled against students in cases related to the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act.

The liberal group was joined on the steps of the Supreme Court building Wednesday by Democratic Sens. He set a record for the Supreme Court nominee with the longest wait for a confirmation hearing as the Senate did not take up his nomination.

Conservative commentator Ed Whelan defends the Gorsuch opinion.

"Judge Gorsuch may act like a neutral, calm judge but his record and his career clearly show he harbors a right-wing, pro-corporate, special interest agenda", the NY senator said.
