The confirmation hearings of Neil Gorsuch have taught us two things. First, Gorsuch is an impressive judge and an upright man who has showed amazing grace under pressure, as well as a sense of humor.
Second, the Democrats are desperate to block him and are willing to make fools of themselves in order to do it.
Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) says he will oppose Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and urge fellow Democrats to do the same.
Schumer announced Thursday that Democrats will filibuster Gorsuch and force Republicans to muster 60 votes to advance him to a final up-or-down vote.
“He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will be no, and I urge my colleagues to do the same,” he said on the Senate floor.
However, this will be a fight that Schumer is destined to lose, one way or another. First of all, he has the dubious honor – as do many other current Democratic senators – of confirming Gorsuch to the Court of Appeals back in 2006.

Prime Minister Teresa May’s statement last night was exceptional.
Authorities moved quickly to track down those who may be connected to the attack. Meanwhile, speculation as to who the terrorist was ran rampant. So much so that earlier reports naming Trevor Brooks aka Abu Izzadeen as the attacker were very very wrong.
Confirmed from multiple sources – official and community – that Trevor Brooks NOT attacker. He's still in jail despite what others report.
As I think the world knows, ISIS also known as Daesh claimed responsibility for the London Terror Attacks. To recap, three people were murdered yesterday and forty injured before the Daesh fan was shot and killed by the police. The Daeshbag (and that is about as kind as I can be to that lowlife coward) stabbed PC Keith Palmer to death in front of Parliament. PC Palmer was assigned to protect Parliament and that is what he gave his life to do.
British Prime Minister Theresa May addressed Parliament today and announced that the man who attacked in Westminster yesterday was “British born” and known to the authorities, as reported by the UK Guardian. The Guardian headline comes from this portion of PM May’s statement: What I can confirm is the man was British born and that […]

Just when you thought the world could not get any dumber enter San Francisco-based Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) who spent their efforts and energy to hire a law firm. Why did they need a law firm? Glad you asked because you’re going to get a good chuckle out of this one! Apparently, MAC (the clothing […]
It was inevitable that the topic would come up. Sure enough, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) jumped on the bandwagon. After unsuccessfully attempting to pin Judge Gorsuch down regarding litmus tests of religious liberty, he took another tack. Cue the Muslim travel ban! Leahy then posed the question a different way, using the language of then-candidate […]
