    Senate Confirms NEIL GORSUCH

    Senate Confirms NEIL GORSUCH

    Thanks, Harry Reid Rule

    It’s a done deal. Mr. Associate Justice Neal Gorsuch.


    After Democrats forced Republicans to invoke the Harry Reid Rule to close debate on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, there will be an up or down vote on confirmation with only 51 votes needed to confirm. The vote is expected to start at 11:30 a.m. Eastern.

    Considering that 55 Senators voted to close debate, confirmation is all but assured despite a smear campaign by Democrat Senators and activist groups.

    Remember that some of the most vocal Democrats were in favor of elimination of the judicial filibuster in 2013 when Harry Reid did it, which is why it should be called the Harry Reid Rule. Jeff Merkley predicted End Times after the Gorsuch cloture vote, yet supported the Harry Reid Rule in 2013:

    This is a historic moment as it signals a return to the the confirmation process that existed before Democrat Deceit on Judicial Filibusters:

    While this fight was stupid and over-the-top hysteria by the Left (Democrats really do not exist any longer, just Leftists), be prepared for the fireworks should Gunsberg or some other liberal SCOTUS judge be removed from the court. That fight would really be one to alter the status quo. Imagine the fear from the Left having to face 6 conservative judges. That fight will make this one look mild in comparison.

      At this point, PDT could nominate someone to the right of James Madison and the D’s would be powerless to stop them.

      Four years is a very long time if you happen to be an associate justice in your 80’s.

      Look for a 7-2 court by the end of his first term.
