Neil Gorsuch

neil-gorsuchSupreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch is a Colorado native and the son of a Republican politician, the late Anne Gorsuch Burford, who was a state legislator and then director of the Environmental Protection Agency for President Reagan. Gorsuch attended Columbia University and Harvard Law School, after which he clerked for D.C. Circuit Court judge David Sentelle.

Gorsuch then clerked for Supreme Court justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy in 1993–94. The next year he studied for a doctorate of philosophy at Oxford University under the legal philosopher John Finnis.

After spending ten years at a law firm in Washington, D.C., Gorsuch went to work for the Justice Department in 2005–06. President George W. Bush nominated him to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Utah, Wyoming, and New Mexico. His confirmation was quick and uncontroversial.

    Is he really openly bisexual? (Wikipedia) If so, the left will freak out, they won’t dare object.

    No matter who he picks not everybody will be happy. That being said we should remember there were quite a few people were very unhappy about his vp choice pence but eventually he proved us he had the insight that we didn’t. I wouldn’t worry too much about his choice unless he chooses Sen.Lee.

  7. From Wikipedia:
    Gorsuch has never had the opportunity to write an opinion on Roe v. Wade.[34] However, based on his opinions expressed in his books opposing euthanasia and the taking of human life, people on both sides of the abortion debate presume he holds a pro-life stance.[22]

    Gorsuch and his wife, Louise, have two daughters, Emma (born 1999) and Belinda (born 2001), and live in Boulder, Colorado.[37][8]

    Gorsuch enjoys being outdoors and fly fishing. He raises horses, chickens, and goats, and often arranges ski trips with colleagues and friends.[30]

    That was then, this is now. My guess is that The Left will find plenty to gripe about this time around. They’ll huff and they’ll blow–or maybe they won’t even show up for work at all.

      There were some of Scalia’s rulings I didn’t agree with, but for some reason I still kinda liked him. He was extremely intelligent, and among other things had a great sense of humor. And despite most considering him “right wing”, he still had plenty of friends on the other side. So yeah…. overall, being compared to Scalia is NOT a bad thing.

    I remember waking up one day and found out we had gay marriage. I won’t be surprised now the transgender bathroom issue and other gender identity issues will be settled soon in the Supreme Court and we will lose the culture wars to the liberal/progressive views.

    Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism, the idea that the Constitution should be interpreted as the Founding Fathers would have interpreted it, and of textualism, the idea that statutes should be interpreted literally, without considering the legislative history and underlying purpose of the law.

      I was thinking about this today….EVERY Judge on the USSC should be a proponent of originalism…Every single one of them. The fact that we have leftists on the court is a travesty, they routinely oppose what the Founding Father’s intended. That in my opinion, is the real problem…

      This case involved the Chevron doctrine (USSC 1984 Chevron vs Natural Resources Defense Council) where the courts differed to agency interpretations of such statutes unless they are unreasonable. The Obama administration tended to be unreasonable and tried to tell the courts where they could stick it.

      • Are we talking about the same guy? James L. Buckley served one term in the Senate from 1971 to 1976 and was considered the most conservative member of the Senate at that time. Then appointed to DC Circuit Court of Appeals by Reagan, and had a conservative record. Hes in his 90s now.

          He was my Senator, Bill Buckley’s older brother, and was paired with the dopey (R)epublicrat Javits.

          and was considered the most conservative member of the Senate at that time

          Who wrote that? Only a leftist could truly believe that back then ( or now ) since anyone to the “right” of LBJ or a Kennedy they saw as Nazis. Here in New York, James Buckley was one of the rare exceptions to the pure stinking rotten liberal cesspool, but not by a whole lot. His brother was definitely better at least on paper, but with 20/20 hindsight neither were Jeffersonian or even Constitutionalists. But again, all things are relative when your State produces Carey, Cuomo(s), Silver, Spitzer, Schumer, and Gillibrand you take what you can get ( even if it is a putz like Pataki ).

          James Buckley was in the 92nd, 93rd and 94th Congresses. Click those links to see the memberships. I can assure the author of that quote that any Congress that contains the mighty Jesse Helms, well, no-one is less Conservative than him 🙂

    Check out his [Gorsuch] opinion in Lee v. Max International, LLC, which begins:

    How many times can a litigant ignore his discovery obligations before his misconduct catches up with him? The plaintiffs in this case failed to produce documents in response to a discovery request. Then they proceeded to violate not one but two judicial orders compelling production of the requested materials.

    After patiently affording the plaintiffs chance after chance, the district court eventually found the intransigence intolerable and dismissed the case as sanction. We affirm. Our justice system has a strong preference for resolving cases on their merits whenever possible, but no one, we hold, should count on more than three chances to make good a discovery obligation.

    I was thinking of what question I would ask Judge Gorsuch if I had a chance. I think I would ask him about the 14th amendment and his view of equal protection and due process. Does it protect individual citizens or identity groups of citizens? Protect from the law or of the law? The left has gone insane in the application of the 14th to the point that now they claim it applies to everyone on the planet, citizens of the whole world. Obama himself stated he was representing ‘those who can not vote’. It has been twisted in to something I do not think was intended and I think it is a major source of what ails us.
