THE GORSUCH HEARING

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 21, 2017

         BELIEVE IT OR NOT THERE WAS A TIME WHEN SUPREME COURT NOMINEES WERE VOTED ON BASED ON THEIR QUALIFICATIONS. THAT WAS WHEN THE COURT WAS LESS ACTIVIST AND MORE IN LINE WITH THE CONSTITUTION.

         TODAY, THE LEFT SEES THE COURT AS A WAY TO BYPASS CONGRESS, THE CONSTITUTION AND EVEN PUBLIC OPINION TO GET WHAT IT COULD ACHIEVE IN NO OTHER WAY.

         AS NEIL GORSUCH BEGAN HIS APPEARANCE YESTERDAY BEFORE THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, NOT ONE DEMOCRAT HAS PLEDGED SUPPORT. THAT’S BECAUSE THE LIBERAL BASE WON’T STAND FOR IT. THEY HATE EVERYTHING DONALD TRUMP DOES AND EVEN THOUGH GORSUCH WILL REPLACE ANTONIN SCALIA AND THE COURT’S IDEOLOGICAL BALANCE WILL NOT CHANGE, THE LEFT IS USING HIS NOMINATION TO RAISE FUNDS AND TO GET READY FOR THE NEXT BATTLE WHICH LIKELY WILL CHANGE THE COURT’S MAKEUP WHEN THE NEXT JUSTICE LEAVES.

         NWSPAPER HEADLINES HAVE BEEN ALL NEGATIVE AND FEATURED MOSTLY THE THOUGHTS OF DEMOCRATS. GORSUCH WILL BE CONFIRMED, BUT DEMOCRATS WILL TRY TO PORTRAY HIM AS “OUT OF THE MAINSTREAM,” WHICH MEANS THEIR POLLUTED RIVER OF ENDLESS ABORTIONS, GAY RIGHTS, BIG GOVERNMENT AND A CONSTITUTION THAT MEANS ONLY WHAT THEY SAY IT MEANS. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
