From the Desk Of:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told his colleagues in the Senate yesterday that he believes the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch should be delayed while President Trump is being investigated by the FBI!
+ + Judge Neil Gorsuch displays an exemplary understanding of the Constitution.
Judge Gorsuch’s answer to Sen. Grassley’s (R-Iowa) question regarding the Constitution’s separation of powers may be among the highlights of his testimony, particularly following eight years of the Obama administration’s egregious overreach of the executive branch’s authority.
Here is what Judge Gorsuch had to say in response to the senator’s question:
And our job, Article III, down at the bottom, is to make sure that the cases and controversies of the people are fairly decided.
And if those roles were confused, and power amalgamated, the Founders worried that that would be the very definition of tyranny. And you can see why.
Judges would make pretty rotten legislators. We’re life-tenured, right? You can’t get rid of us. It only takes a couple of us to make a decision — or nine, or 12, depending on the court. That would be a pretty poor way to run a democracy.
And at the same time, with respect, legislators might not make great judges, because they’re answerable to the people. And when you come to court with a case or a controversy about past facts, you want a neutral, rigidly neutral – fair, scrupulously fair, decision-maker. You want somebody who’s going to put politics aside.
So the separation of powers, I don’t think has lost any of its genius over 200 years. In fact, it’s proven it.”
+ + Liberty Counsel enthusiastically supports the nomination and confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court!
Liberty Counsel’s Save Our Courts, Save Our Nation petition states: “I support Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court and urge the Senate to confirm President Trump’s nominee as quickly as possible!”
It’s time to return this country to the rule of law through which judges interpret the original meaning of the Constitution and the laws before them.
The confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch is critical to the makeup of the High Court and to our nation’s culture and laws for decades to come. This is a lifetime appointment. It is imperative that we do everything in our power to see that his confirmation is successful.
God bless you. And God bless America.
