I don't see Donny nominating a moderate. 

Nancy Grace sounds up his alley.  Who's the judge on Fox with the hairline barely above his eye brows? Him too.

Obama waited for a year with his nomination, and got nowhere with the GOP. Not even a freekin' hearing. WTF?

Screw the Republicans. Show zero cooperation.

PS---Despite the predictions of people like Nate Silver and Chuck Todd, you lost the Senate. You guys can't stop crap without a filibuster that can go away anybtime.

President Trump set to make Supreme Court choice this week, short list down to three.
 

This, as sources close to the selection process tell Fox News the list of possible candidates is now down to three names, all of them federal appeals court judges: Judge William Pryor in Alabama, Judge Neil Gorsuch in Colorado, and Judge Thomas Hardiman in Pennsylvania.
 
All are appointees of George W. Bush, a sign that judicial picks can have a far-reaching impact years, even decades, after presidents leaving elected office. Federal judges serve for life, and seven of the eight current justices all served in lower federal appeals courts.
 
White House Counsel Don McGahn is leading the vetting process, with input from senior administration legal and political advisers, including Sessions. Outside conservative advisers include Leonard Leo of the Federalist Society and Jim DeMint of the Heritage Foundation.
 
Any of the 3 would be an excellent choice, and a big first step in Making America Great Again!

Well there's Judge Judy too, but remember, Donny doesn't like celebrities any more.

(CNN)The two judges who have been considered the top finalists to be President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court -- Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman -- are being brought to Washington ahead of tonight's White House announcement, sources tell CNN.

 

The move comes as there were increasing indications that Gorsuch will be Trump's choice, sources briefed on the White House deliberations tell CNN. One source said that Gorsuch was told it was likely him. Those close to the process warn that until it is announced, Trump could change his mind.

 

 

suppose to announce it tonight at eight

I sure it's Judge Gorsuch.  His strong conservative views on religious rights (1A) and gun rights (2A) makes him the perfect pick, and at age 49 could set precedents for the next 30 years.

Trump's sister apparently has advocated for Hardiman.

Hardiman is the pick IMO and a good one.

http://www.businessi...ntrunner-2017-1


 

Hardiman has reflected originalist opinions on Second Amendment cases. On abortion-related issues, Hardiman has not weighed in directly.

With Democrats threatening to block Trump's Supreme Court pick, it's noteworthy that Hardiman was voted onto the appeals court in 2007 by a 95-0 tally. Both Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, voted to approve him.

I don't think tag teams are allowed so I'm going to feel kinda bad for the loser. I hope Donny doesn't make him go to the press conference with the winner.

Is this one of the dumbest things ever written in a news story?

 

 

 

Gorsuch is in Washington, according to one source close to the process. Hardiman was seen by a CNN producer leaving his Pittsburgh neighborhood Tuesday morning and driving east towards Washington.

 

 

 

Every morning when I leave my neighborhood, I drive west towards Sacramento.

I drive North.  Maybe the assumption is that I am fleeing to Canada.   :P

I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill.
