Dick Blumenthal VS Judge Gorsuch – He Said, He Said and Media Runs to The Typeset…

Apparently there are many people who just don’t quite understand the concept of:

…The political war is a battle for your mind.

The professional swamp dwellers, and those who sell the swamp uniparty messages, are intensely skilled at creating false impressions. The example of swamp-master Dick Blumenthal and his like-minded political ilk is just the most recent example.

blumenthal-1gorsuch-4

Senator Dick knows Judge Gorsuch is in that tenuous confirmation space where he cannot respond to any claim made by political opposition about his words, their use and phrases.

Senator Dick can say anything he wants, Gorsuch has no venue to retort.

Senator Dick knows this position of compromise puts Dick’s team at an advantage. Thus Team Dick can say anything they want, and Team Dick’s political opponents are hamstrung.

This is the context to consider anything coming from the mouth of Dick, or any oppositional entity who monitor the swamp and advocate on behalf of those dwelling therein; ie. ‘the mostly swamp media’ (MSM). The swamp sellers can then run with Team Dick’s statements to create a useful narrative of division against their opposition.

trump-drain-the-swamp-2

This is the way of the Swamp. The Swamp is a UniParty Swamp. This has always been the way of the UniParty Swamp. There are no Marquess of Queensberry rules within the Swamp; it’s all manipulative infectious pus peddling all the time.

Yes, it’s gross. Deal with it.

President Trump knows full well the manipulative Machiavellian swamp schemes. This is why President Trump carries an atomic battle axe against the swamp dwellers and represents the only oppositional force they fear.

swamp_wetlandsRemove Trump and the Swamp is, yet again, a safe space for the swamp dwellers. How to remove Trump?….

Attempt to demoralize Trump’s supporters via Team Dick and the manipulative scheme within the aforementioned example.

If you want to fight the swamp, you better be prepared to go to the mattresses 100% of the time 24/7/365.

Within the Swamp there are no rules. The battle within the swamp is a Thunderdome of anything goes. Punches below the belt are not only common place, they are taught amid the Swamp protection schools that also hold professional lying classes as prerequisites in the first year of attendance.

No political entity has ever taken the fight to those who live in the DC Swamp. President Trump, including the larger Team Trump, is the first political opposition the Swamp has faced in decades. Do not allow the ridiculous nonsense from those within the swamp to dictate your perspectives or outlooks.

Do not be like Dick.

Inoculate your mind prior to entry.

“Judge Gorsuch has made it very clear, in all of his discussions with Senators, including Senator Blumenthal, that he could not comment on specific cases and that judicial ethics preclude him from commenting on political matters.

He has also emphasized the importance of an independent judiciary; and while he made clear that he was not referencing any specific case, he said that he finds any criticism of a judge’s integrity and independence disheartening and demoralizing.”

~ Kelly Ayotte presenting the position of Judge Gorsuch during a discussion with Senator Richard Blumenthal.

  1. Sean Spiced the media in today’s briefing he was very good.
    Amazing how many trying to throw Gorsutch under the bus I don’t know how many more times Sean or anyone else can explain in what context Gorsutch was speaking.

    or

    2) Join the opposition.

    I choose option #1

    If Gorsuch needs to be jettisoned, then Trump will make his move. President Trump definitely knows how to say “you’re fired”

        Exactly. They haven’t said anything about Judge Gorsuch that they didn’t say about President Trump. “He’s weak”, “He’s a liar”, “He’s a false conservative”, “He’ll only disappoint you”, “He won’t do what he’s promised”….

        The same lies coming from the same mouths. They prey on your fears, your skepticism, and your doubts. They have spent years carefully crafting the cynicism they now seek to exploit. “What if we’re wrong?” “What if it’s a trick?” “What if we’re not actually smart enough to make these decisions for ourselves? Wouldn’t it be easier, and so much more comforting to let our betters make these decisions for us? Isn’t it exhausting to constantly stay vigilant, always parsing every single word of every story we hear to carefully divine the truth among the lies? Wouldn’t it feel better to tune out and stop paying attention while someone else does all the hard work for us?”

      True. He’s also not stupid, though. No matter whom PDJT nominates, they’re going to face a thorough roasting at the hands of the liberals. They would rather not make the same mistake that Harry Reid made in nuking the cloture vote. It would be better if Gorsuch’s confirmation wasn’t sullied by breaking with Senate tradition in the same way that we all railed against the leftists for only for an even bigger appointment.

      What if, and I’m no more in-the-know than anyone, but what if Dobbs et al are in on the play? President Trump and his team got elected by acknowledging that they must fight fire with fire. That includes psy-ops. So far President Trump has proven himself to be a master of reverse psychology as a means to control the narrative. What if all of this “Gorsuch has broken with Trump over the travel ban” brouhaha is exactly what gets Judge Gorsuch the Democrat votes he needs to be confirmed without our side sacrificing the moral high ground with regards to cloture and giving the opposition another argument to convince their side that this is an illegitimate appointment?

    Ayotte cannot be trusted either. She’s another NeverTrumper. So I won’t assume he said those things and I’m disappointed in Dobbs tonight defending this because he said it has been corroborated by several sources, citing RINOs such as Sasse. So……it’s reasonable to doubt.
    However, it seems to me Gorsuch could at least make a simple statement denying it if that’s the case, period. I don’t see that as “political” and would affect his confirmation negatively. But oh well…….Dobbs did say that despite what he believed to be true about his statements, he thinks he should be confirmed and would be disastrous if he wasn’t.
    And yes, I do believe it was another sinister plot by the Swamp Creatures – it always is. Think most if not all of Pres. Trump’s supporters will be sticking with him through thick or thin and know there is a “war” here. Good news is we’re seeing more and more being exposed for who and what they really are and may even be bringing more on board the……….train.

      Actually I don’t see anything wrong with what Gorusch said as relayed by Ayotte in a post above. Paraphrasing, he said he finds it disheartening and dismaying when people cast aspersions at the judiciary, and made it clear he wasn’t speaking about any particular case.

      To me that is like a police chief saying it is disheartening and dismaying when criminal charges are brought against a policeman. It applies when the policeman is innocent, yet it is also disheartening and dismaying if the policeman is guilty.

      So you can be upset when someone disparages a judge either because the judge is innocent and doesn’t deserve it, or because the judge has violated his oath and does deserve it.

      In any case, Ayotte specifically states he was not talking about any person or case because that would be unethical. For all we know he was thinking about Obama castigating the supreme court during his state of the union address,

        I’ve read what she said several times and I think you can take it both ways as some have stated here. My point is another possibility is it was another sinister plot against Pres. Trump using these NeverTrumpers and their slick poli-speak as SD has said. Not only do I think Dick was lying, it was Ayotte with her slick narrative also. Yes, could have been she was just repeating what he said and meant he felt bad because of the sad truth about these corrupt justices but it’s done in such a way that you can take it either way and she got her jab against Pres. Trump done, knowing many would jump to the conclusion that he was criticizing Pres. Trump, not the other. Leaves her in the clear because it’s up to the “hearer” how to take it.
        That’s why I say I wish Gorsuch would have come out and clarified if he wasn’t criticizing Pres. Trump.

        6) Pound Home how Washington & Minnesota is Taking advantage of Foreign Students, Have seen reports that they are charging them triple the going rate.

    Depends how you read Gorsuch’s comment as stated by Ayotte. If I were a judge, I’d find criticism of a justice or court ‘disheartening and demoralizing’, too. Why? B/C it would indicate there was likely BASIS for said criticism, and as such, indicates said judge/court was acting improperly. Which is a shame, b/c they should be impartial and follow the law.

    On another note, some are encouraging Trump to take his EO to a FISA court, where they can rule while having full intel info. I think this unwise. Furthermore, it doesn’t do ANYTHING to stop the moronic judicial overreach at the District and Circuit courts. THAT is the problem. So he went out early, imo, b/c at some point, he needs a ruling that puts these courts back into a box where they are weighing in on that what they should, and not which is outside the scope of their judicial purpose. He’s got loads of other EO’s and, hopefully, bills which will, if the courts aren’t slapped, see the bulk of them tied up in courts. Clear up the issue NOW.

    Trump is showing the public the corruption of the judiciary. He IS the most TRANSPARENT POTUS in my lifetime. Believe me. While leftists and moronic ninnies are cheering the decision, plenty of normal people, beyond Trump voters are getting an eyeful of the judiciary trying to do the job of the Executive branch. Basing their decision in part there was insufficient ‘proof’ of evil-doers from said 7 countries puts the idiot 9th circuit panel in the ugly position of not ruling on the EO based on the LAW, but their ‘feelings’ of merit. NOT THEIR JOB.

    Furthermore, even those not paying too close attention will ask themselves, ‘what, so the US is supposed to take in, feed, house, etc ANYONE from ANYWHERE claiming to be a ‘refugee’ or ANYONE coming in on some sort of visa, even if they are a jihadi? Assad point blank came out in an interview today stating SOME of the refugees ARE TERRORISTS. The 9th Circus just rolled out the welcome mat.

    Trump always owns the downside, and along the way, the public gleans a better understanding of what is going on and what is at stake. This will be a winning decision for Trump.

IMO he knew exactly what he was doing in setting Gorsuch up the way he did, complete with photo ops of the two of them sitting in his office (again, camera whore that he is). And as an attorney, he knows Gorsuch can’t speak to defend himself or explain what he actually meant under these circumstances. We are left with the representions of NeverTrumper Kelly Ayotte!

    Judges choose their words carefully. I doubt he said what is claimed, or in the context claimed, or approves the public statement the Democratic senator made.

    Trump selected Gorsuch because Trump believes Gorsuch shares his values, and although no guarantees, I suspect Gorsuch does share his values.

    I don’t think the senator’s comments were a smart move, as it gives Gorsuch a personal experience of the politics of Washington that he will bring with him to the Supreme Court. A good judge will not be biased, but will recognize realities, including those gained through personal experience, when making decisions.

  34. What causes me worry is the church Judge Gorsuch attends in Boulder. Very liberal Episcopal parish, from what I’ve read. Not a church a committed conservative would choose to attend.
    Might make these accusations more credible.

      Well, if it is Boulder, there probably are no conservative Episcopal churches. Might have to drive down to Denver to find one.

      As an Episcopalian who battles underground to undermine the direction of my own church, I also find this quite disturbing.

      • It’s a huge tell for me. Having been through the obvious battles for 30 years. Remnant? Maybe, but I highly doubt it. Liberal theology at its finest. I wonder how Heritage, Federalist missed this. No discernment perhaps. Hope it is nothing more.

      Why do you believe Sen. Blumenthal automatically? Ever considered that he’s embellishing or outright misrepresenting the words of Judge Gorsuch?

      I also agree. I think it’s fine if Gorsuch has a difference of opinion with President Trump on some things; that is to be expected. And I get that this episode is being exploited to try to beat down Trump supporters. However, I don’t think he should see criticism as demoralizing.

        He scares the heck out of me – seems so namby-pamby, kind of like Pence. I know lots of people like Pence at this site, but there are so many Christians who don’t seem to see the need to fight. They appear to mistake being nice and getting along for being good – Godly.

    Lou Dobbs went full retard tonight. Literally suggesting Gorsuch should step away from being considered for SCOTUS. He’s playing into the Left’s hands. We all know Dems are liars and Ayotte and Sasse are NeverTrump tools.

    THE GAME OF SURVIVOR AMERICAN ISLAND continues

    Machiavellian 3D chess master Trump facing off with the UNIPARTY SWAMP ALLIANCE .

    At a critical juncture in this REWARD CHALLENGE the deception that Gorsuch is looking to FLIP to the SWAMP team is critical . With the 9th commie court playing stall ball on Trump securing our borders he needs a back door . Some keen deception to get the left to embrace Corshuch as having FLIPPED to ” their alliance ” against Trump .

    And there it is …SUDDENLY the left rallies around ANYONE including Gorsuch that admonishes President Trump in any way . Why I can’t WAIT for his confirmation hearings for all the GLOWING praise from the left .

    I guess two can ply the TROJAN HORSE GAME eh ? the game is afoot !!

    Oh the BOLDNESS of Trump …” we’ll see you in court ! ” thus the URGENCY to get Gorsuch in his black robe ready for service !!

    The law ..is the law …the 9th is the attempt at rule of commie man

    I’m sorry! For Gorsuch to say: “that he finds any criticism of a judge’s integrity and independence disheartening and demoralizing.” let alone at this snapshot in time with what is unfolding before our very eyes is ludicrous! And IMO a major red flag.

    He said it! It totally contradicts the reality of the corruption that we have been witnessing
    For the last few years let alone the recent unconstitutional ruling out of the 9th cicuit.

    I get the warning about not falling for the swamps manipulation but the stakes are too high to risk giving another potential turncoat a lifetime SCOTUS position.

      Do we know the exact context of the question? Do we have a 100% accurate direct quote that he said? Is it possible that what he found disheartening and demoralizing was the fact that the Judges do things that leave them open to such critique?
      I for one, will give this little consideration because Gorsuch cannot personally clarify this, or defend the comment at this time.

    Also, To suggest that Gorsuch said this as a ploy (Lie) to throw off the Dems is an assumption. Are we going to march happily along with this based on an assumption?

    The first reaction was to protect the feelings of his fellow judges instead of protecting the constitution. What planet was he living on? The first question to be asked is “Do you believe the judiciary has taken too much power for itself and that its authority needs to be constrained?” The people clearly believe it is so, but does he believe it?
