By Dave Andrusko Everyone knew that the elephant in the room in the 2016 presidential election was the Supreme Court—specifically who would replace the late Antonin Scalia and more generally who would fill future vacancies. (And that doesn’t even touch on the hundreds of lower court appointments.) The background was that pro-abortionists and Democrats (but, …Continue reading "Bitter pro-abortionist reflects on the anniversary of the confirmation of Justice Gorsuch"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This ran April 7, 2017. The Washington Post headline today was succinct and to the point: “Senate confirms Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court.” But those seven words offered pro-lifers the assurance that pro-life President Donald Trump was serious about choosing someone in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia …Continue reading "A look back at the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as 113th justice of the Supreme Court"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. My family and I will be on vacation through August 25. I will occasionally add new items but for the most part we will repost “the best of the best” — the stories our readers have told us they especially liked over the last ten months. I would have loved …Continue reading "As Justice Gorsuch is sworn in, President Trump describes him as “a man who is deeply faithful to the Constitution of the United States”"
You won! More important for our country, the law and our Constitution won. And that can’t help but be good for unborn babies! Wealthy pro-abortion groups poured massive amounts of energy and resources into defeating Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, but in the end, you and I (and the unborn!) were …Continue reading "Here’s how you made the Gorsuch victory happen"
WASHINGTON – Today’s 54-45 roll call confirming Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court is the capstone on yesterday’s landmark victory, when united Senate Republicans, under Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), put an end to the ability of Senate Democrats to utilize the filibuster to deny confirmation to Supreme Court nominees of Republican presidents. Thursday’s …Continue reading "In landmark week, united Senate Republicans win “historic victory” on Supreme Court nominations"
By Dave Andrusko The Washington Post headline today was succinct and to the point: “Senate confirms Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court.” But those seven words offered pro-lifers the assurance that pro-life President Donald Trump was serious about choosing someone in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia and a reminder that pro-life Senate Majority …Continue reading "Gorsuch confirmed as 113th justice of the Supreme Court"
By Dave Andrusko When NRLC described today’s party-line vote to break (“invoke cloture”) the Democrats’ filibuster of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch as “historic,” it was no exaggeration. It is also no exaggeration to say that pro-abortion Democrats were hoisted on their own “nuclear option” petard. After all who established the precedent in 2013 …Continue reading "Stage now set for a final roll call on Friday to confirm Judge Gorsuch"
WASHINGTON – Led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), U.S. Senate Republicans today united to produce a historic victory for their party, the President, and the country — and a huge defeat for a coalition of left-wing groups, led by the abortion lobby, that had relentlessly pressured Democratic senators to filibuster the confirmation of Judge …Continue reading "National Right to Life: U.S. Senate Republicans unite to produce historic victory"
Calls, letters, and emails continue to pour into Senate offices asking senators to vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. And they need to! We always knew that the battle over Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation would come down to the question of abortion. Pro-abortion forces like NARAL and Planned Parenthood are working …Continue reading "Judiciary Committee approves Gorsuch, but fight continues"
By Dave Andrusko Following yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee 11-9 vote in favor of Judge Neil Gorsuch, the full Senate today began formally debating whether Judge Gorsuch will replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. By the end of the day Monday, enough Democrats had signaled that they would oppose ending a filibuster …Continue reading "Senate begins formally debating Gorsuch nomination"
By Dave Andrusko Like many of you, before the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-9 to advance to the full Senate the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to become the newest member of the Supreme Court, I jumped back and forth between the debate and the press of other stories. As we’ve discussed on numerous occasions, …Continue reading "Senate Judiciary Committee advances nomination of Judge Gorsuch"
For decades, the pro-abortion makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked efforts to gain legal protection for unborn babies. The Supreme Court created an essentially unlimited “right” to abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973. Only a tiny handful of countries anywhere in the world have a policy so radical. Since our founding, the …Continue reading "National Life Campaign to Confirm Judge Gorsuch"
