With a 55-45 vote in the United States Senate, Vice President Michael Pence gaveled the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court Justice into history. After the Democrats voted in such a manner as to trigger the nuclear option, the seat of the late Justice Scalia was filled with a judge of impeccable honor and integrity.
And thus begins the Reshaping of the SCOTUS. In the four years, possibly eight, that lie ahead for President Trump, I predict that there will be AT LEAST two more vacancies to fill. Given that the Libs have triggered the nuclear option, the conservative Court will shape our judicial branch for at least a generation.
While at this hour we focus on the nearly three thousand lives lost in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania, let us also pause to remember the four brave Americans who were attacked and killed on this date two years ago when our consulate in Benghazi, Libya was attacked.
This “humor” was in my INBOX this morning:
from the Washington Free Beacon:
Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.
The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.
Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.
Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive nuclear strikes on the United States and NATO.
