Supreme Court Appointment: Trump Will Play It Smart

Sun_Tzu_open_rights

Dear, dear President Trump is going to play it smart.

“Er, no, we are not going to talk about Roe vs Wade. I want a conservative, you see. A solid Originalist”. If the readers of Canon 212 are lucky, actually a solid Catholic.

But no, let us not talk about Roe vs Wade, you see. Established jurisprudence, you understand. “Law of the Land” and all that. 

Trump will keep abortion as peripheral as possible. As the feminists screech about staying away from “bodies” no sane person would want to touch, Trump will keep talking about solid judicial praxis; an issue popular with the electorate beyond the Republican voters.

Gorsuch did the same. Appointed with 54 to 45. Comfortably.

I have read that Judas McCain has also promised his vote (if he lives to see it), which would make things somewhat easier. Once again, we see how important the lost Alabama seat was.

Trump must make it very difficult for the likes of Collins and Murkowski (both women, ironically) to go against him. Of course the Dems will try to pull out of the hat some aged woman saying “Mr such-and-such touched my tit once in 1992, when I was Sixteen”, but these tricks are getting old fast and, talking of the Supreme Court, slander and ferocious character assassination campaign did not stop the appointment of the great Clarence Thomas.

But seriously, this should be easy if Trump avoids an obvious enemy of Roe vs Wade. If McCain lives to give his votes, and assuming there is no other defeater beyond Murkowski and Collins, only one Democrat would be enough. Not difficult one month before the elections. Also please consider that both Murkowski and Collins are due for re-elections in 2020. It wouldn’t be easy for them to survive the Primaries in the midst of a huge “Keep America Great” wave. They are well advised to pretend all is fine in their abortionist world, shut up, and vote their own ass.

Trump is a smart guy and fine strategist. A Sun Tzu from Queens.

God willing, he will steer his boat past the Republican rocks and sail to Republican immortality.

  1. The most important reason President Trump will not ask a Supreme Court nominee about their opinion of Roe v. Wade is so the judge can truthfully answer in the negative when asked at the Senate hearing if he expressed an opinion on the case when he met with the president.

    • I thought senators are not allowed to ask candidates about how they would vote in particular issues? I know they do, but at least they should obliged to be less direct?

  2. Religious bigots 1960: A practicing Catholic cannot be POTUS.
    Religious bigots 2018: A practicing Catholic cannot be a Supreme Court justice.
    The question today is not whether some church or other will “established” as the religion of the state.
    The question today is whether ruthless demagogues will cow all people of faith into renouncing their right to political enfranchisement. The question is whether a confirmation hearing is today’s equivalent to Trial by Ordeal, where the only way you come out alive…maybe…is by confessing to heresy.
    It is precisely the “separation of church and state” that dictates they must NOT be allowed to do that.
    Otherwise, their “church” BECOMES the state.

  3. Trump already said he is fine with gay “marriage”. meanwhile lefties in schools are trying to indoctrinated american children with lgtbi…z agenda, honor mohammad, submmit to islam; american citizens are already being fined, fired from their jobs, even jailed because of “homophobia”, “islamophobia” charges. will Trump care about them?

    • Firstly, Trump is not there to fight all the battles of the world. Secondly, the judges he is appointed will, in time, solve the problem for us.
