Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court justice ahead of key cases
« on: April 10, 2017, 08:39:07 AM »
Finally!!  I know he was on the list that was handed to Cruz, I just hope and pray he rules along the lines of Scalia and not Roberts. 

Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court justice ahead of key cases

Justice Neil Gorsuch was sworn in to the Supreme Court Monday, capping a grueling confirmation process and filling the seat once held by the late Antonin Scalia.

Gorsuch took the Constitutional Oath in a private ceremony, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts in the Supreme Court’s Justice’s Conference Room. He was accompanied by his wife Louise, who held the Bible, and his two daughters.

Later, in a public ceremony at the White House, Justice Anthony Kennedy – Gorsuch’s former boss – administered the Judicial Oath.

"We are here to celebrate history," President Trump said, calling Gorsuch a man of "unmatched qualification" and "deeply devoted" to the Constitution.

"I have no doubt you will rise to the occasion, and the decisions you make will protect our Constitution today and for many generations of Americans to come," he said.

Gorsuch takes the seat of the late Justice Scalia, who died in February last year, and whom Gorsuch has been compared favorably to by conservatives hopeful for another originalist on the court.

I would like to see Kennedy retire at the end of this year's court session. He is 84 and putting a real conservative in his seat would give me more comfort.

Ginsburg is older. More dangerously leftist (although losing Kennedy isn't exactly fifth place). Once the evil crone Ginsburg topples over from advanced ignorance, Trump should absolutely hammer the Donks with someone equally to the right as she was to the bugeyed drooling crazies.

Remember, while talking on stage with Mark Levin, Cruz did predict a SCOTUS opening happening in the near future :smile:

Safe bet, considering average age.

We can only HOPE Trump works down his list of candidates, and ignores Liberal pressure to keep the court "balanced".

That's definitely been my concern; he promised to appoint a justice from the list to appoint Scalia, but nothing was promised as such for future appointments.

Harry Reid didn't care a bit when he changed the Senate rules - and I'll bet he knew it could come back to haunt him.

Looks like we'll know soon enough if he is really an originalist.If he is the next SCOTUS hearings will be epic.
