Judge Neil Gorsuch President Donald Trump

President Donald Trump nominated Colorado Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat on the Supreme Court vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia who died under mysterious circumstances in February 2016.

According to published reports, Gorsuch, 49, is a conservative purist who holds a "deep commitment to the original understanding of the constitution and the rule of law".

Gorsuch embraces an "originalism" view of the constitution, meaning he believes judges should interpret the constitution as it was written -- unlike former President Obama who interpreted the constitution to fit his socialist agenda.

Democrats are so fearful of a conservative judge on the Supreme Court that they promised to filibuster Trump's nominee before the nomination was even announced.

In a speech accepting the nomination on Tuesday, Gorsuch said, "Standing here in a house of history and acutely aware of my own imperfections, I pledge that if I am confirmed I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the constitution and laws of this great country.".

Liberals decried Trump's nomination as a "payback to the Religious Right".

A Daily Beast writer cried that "Judge Neil Gorsuch is enthusiastically pro-life and conservative on all other issues near and dear to evangelicals who held their noses and who elected a morally flawed president."

They remind us that former President Obama picked Judge Merrick Garland to fill the same empty seat. But Republicans who control the Senate refused to give Garland a confirmation hearing.

Gorsuch is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School.

He once drove taxi cabs for a living.

    That third paragraph is poorly written and makes no sense whatsoever...Obama was never a supreme court justice and you didn't indicate how...if at all...he interpreted the constitution, if not an "originalism" view

  • klwbaby

    Antonin was 79 and had a history of heart problems... Mystery solved

  • hottlanta

    Wow we have a president who can't spell Constitution.

  • CutdBS

    Obama svcked for Blacks so what good was that constitutional knowledge? A Gay agenda, A Muslim agenda, A Illegal immigrant agenda but no Black agenda? Wow!!! Obama changed from "Black Activist" from Chicago to Barry "The Bi racial" from Honolulu with the white liberal Ideology.

    After 8 years, i still don't know what his Goals, Objectives and Vision was for Blacks. What a digrace.......

    He used to play basketball and now he plays golf. The Obamas are currently on a luxurious vacation courtesy of billionaire Richard Branson. Branson took it upon himself to campaign against President Trump although he's not an American citizen. See the connection. The Obamas were bought by gay Hollywood and made gay marriage legal. I'm delighted my president is erasing as much as he can from Obama's horrible presidency. (Thank God Barry is gone.)

    He was on the heavy side too

  • nick c

    It makes perfect sense a president only appoints someone who's ideas are identical to his.

  • nick c

    Lol it's gonna get crazy if he gets another pick I was shocked Ruth didn't retire to ensure Obama picked her replacement.

    I think they are referring to reports that a pillow was found over his face and the medical examiner determined his death was natural causes over the phone without examining the body; allegedly. Scalia was a pretty narrow minded judge though and his opinions while sometimes entertaining were pretty arrogant.

  • klwbaby

    It was reported that he died in his bed but I didn't see anything about why the pillow was on his face..

  • TheTruthHurts

    Yea, it was kinda strange. The medical examiner refused to be interviewed as to why and how she was able to phone in her determination without having examined the body.

    Here comes another man who feels he knows whats best for a woman's body smh

    Democrats have no loyalty or sense of planning.

    That's why Hillary isn't president. Whoever the FBI Director was before Comey didn't resign until after Republicans gained control of the Senate.

    I wouldn't be surprised if McConnell doesn't go nuclear on the filibuster.

    He has nothing to lose.

    Until this Justice signs on with Trump to send your black a$$ to the FEMA camps.

  • Elevated Soul

    I expect for this judge to be deemed racist,by the deranged "Alt-Left" since he's a Republican.

  • Elevated Soul

    I agree Obama was all about himself and he catered to the agenda of gays/illegals.He was horrendous for Black people but you can't tell his silly Black supporters that.

    I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
    I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
    I listened as they said he wasn't born here.
    I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
    I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
    I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
    I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
    I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
    I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
    I watched as they did just that.
    I listened.
    I watched.
    I paid attention.
    Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant.
    To move forward.
    To denounce protesters.
    To "Get over it."
    To accept this...
    I will not.
    I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
    I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
    I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
    I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
    I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
    Them. The people who voted for him.
    The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
    I will do this so that they never forget.
    And they will hear me.
    They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
    They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
    They will know that I know who they are.
    They will know that I know what they are.
    Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can.
    Now it's their turn to tolerate ridicule.
    Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day
    forward is now Trump's fault just as much as they thought it was Obama's.
    I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give."

    Trump is supposed to be the white chosen one for the black race by choosing Ben Carson over the HUD department. If he was so concerned about the hood as he has preached he would take advantage of the tax breaks he could get from HUD. He rather build something overseas than put it in the black community. He was real good to black people by bringing back stop and frisk and wanted 5 little black boys to die for a crime they didn't commit. Sessions is a gift to black folks and I love seeing how his black supporters try to defend him and got only black person in his cabinet.

    This is worth waking up to. Asking me to support an "admitted" sexual predator and university fraudster is a bit much. Looking at Michael Eric Dyson and applauded when he said that Trump is the "toddler" President. Damn he said he refuse to talk about a brother who can read and compute against who one tweets. Made my day, YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

    The democrats better show some backbone.....resist

    LOL..non americans...

    First, Trump knows nothing about Gorsuch and hasn't read any of his opinions. He selected him on the advice of white supremacist Steve Bannon and the other right-wing loons on his team.

    Gorsuch seeks to interpret the constitution exactly as it was intended by the white men who wrote it. Men who thought Negroes were sub-human chattel, and women were the property of their fathers or husbands who didn't require the right to vote. Men who thought that poor people should die in the streets from starvation, exposure or disease. Men who could not have conceived of high-powered assault rifles. Men who never flew on an airplane. Men who were not aware of the existence of microscopic organisms -- or dinosaurs. But Gorsuch believes the presumed values and intentions of these white men should dictate how we live in the 21st century.

    Okay so what do you want...
    BLM interrupted his town halls... black lives matter? What happened? Now you got people willing to try to help and people still upset. How many black people did Obama have in his cabinet? Did you support Bush when he made condolezzas appointment and Colin Powell. Why didn't Obama appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court? Cause let's not talk about that Supreme Court appointment Obama selected. ? Have your read her weak court opinions.
