#SCOTUS: Neil Gorsuch Officially Sworn In As 113th Supreme Court Justice [VIDEO]

Last Friday, after days and weeks of Democrat absurdity and hissy fits, Judge Neil Gorsuch was officially confirmed by the United States Senate to be the newest justice on the Supreme Court. Needless to say, we here at Victory Girls were thrilled that such an advocate for and defender of our Constitution and the rule of law would be taking his place on the highest court in the land.

Today, it became official. 

Colorado appeals court judge Neil M. Gorsuch took his oaths to be the Supreme Court’s 113th justice Monday morning, first in a private ceremony at the court and later at a Rose Garden ceremony with the man who nominated him, President Trump.

At the first, private event in a grand room inside the Supreme Court, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. administered the oath that all federal employees take. All eight justices and most of their spouses were on hand, as well as Maureen Scalia and Eugene Scalia, the widow and son of the justice Gorsuch is replacing, Antonin Scalia.

Gorsuch’s wife Louise held a family Bible, and his daughters Emma and Belinda looked on.

A short time ago, the official swearing in ceremony took place in the Rose Garden.

As Scotusblog reports, the calendar for the Supreme Court is packed. Justice Gorsuch will be rolling up his sleeves and getting to work immediately.

Of course that also means the naysayers are frantically reviewing Justice Gorsuch’s previous cases in an effort to determine/predict how he will rule. They are, sadly for them, forgetting one thing. Gorsuch, during his confirmation hearings made it abundantly clear that he will rule on the case itself, the laws surrounding that case, and nothing else. He made it abundantly clear that his personal opinion or his or ANYONE ELSE’s politics do not have a role on the bench. Only the law does.

With Justice Gorsuch now on the bench, following the Supreme Court just got a whole lot more interesting. It is true that Justice Antonin Scalia is sorely missed. However, I’ve no doubt that Justice Gorsuch is just the man to take his place on the ben. Will he always rule exactly the way we want him to? No. But will his judgements and rulings adhere to and uphold the law and our Constitution?

Given his demeanor, his humbleness, and his record, I believe so.

President Trump kept a key promise and we saw the result of that this morning. We here at Victory Girls issue our hearty congratulations to Justice Neil Gorsuch and his family!
