Not yet, apparently. Conservatives are delighted with Donald Trump’s Supreme Court selection, but the Never Trumpers are still cluck-clucking away.
Conservatives were effusive in their praise on Tuesday evening for President Donald Trump’s choice for the U.S. Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.
Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed said:
President Trump won 81 percent of the evangelical vote in no small measure because he made an ironclad pledge that if elected he would fill the vacancy on the US Supreme Court with a strict constructionist who would respect the Constitution and the rule of law, not legislate from the bench. We never doubted then-candidate Trump’s sincerity or commitment, and by nominating Judge Gorsuch, he has now kept that promise. Judge Gorsuch is a widely respected jurist whose razor-sharp intellect is complemented by his temperament and the knowledge of the law. He is exactly who the nation needs as a Supreme Court Justice in the model of the late Antonio Scalia. Faith & Freedom Coalition is thrilled by this nomination and will work tirelessly for the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.
Michael A. Needham, CEO of Heritage Action for America, said:
Judge Neil Gorsuch is a nominee ‘very much in the mold’ of the late Justice Antonin Scalia. President Trump deserves credit for fulfilling his campaign pledge by nominating an individual who will, based on his record, interpret the text of the Constitution rather than create unwritten rights supposedly hidden between the lines. The usurpations of the rule of law, substituting for the will of the people as embodied in democratically enacted legislation rights nowhere to be found in our Constitution itself, only serves to divide our nation. Judge Gorsuch is an outstanding choice, and now the Senate must prepare to carry out its “Advise and Consent” role as it has for the past 227 years.
Meanwhile the left is in another panic: “‘More Extreme than Justice Scalia’ — Left-wing Activists Sound the Alarm Over Gorsuch” But the cucks and media cons are still aligning themselves with the Left and virtue-signaling their distaste for the God-Emperor. Benny Shapiro is whining about how there is no “Master Plan” while Jonah Goldberg is crying about how Steve Bannon’s master plan isn’t “good governance”. It’s absolutely absurd!
Who can still take these guys seriously? They’re not principled. It’s becoming eminently clear that they are defeatist anklebiters who are psychologically unequipped for winning. Jonah writes:
Bannon has said he’s a “Leninist” but he’s really more of a Trotskyist because he fancies himself the leader of an international populist-nationalist right-wing movement, exporting anti-“globalist” revolution. In that role, his status as an enabler of Trump’s instinct to shoot — or tweet — from the hip seems especially ominous…. The Bannon Way might work on the campaign trail, but it doesn’t translate into good governance. It’s possible — and one must hope — that Trump can learn this fact on the job. But what if he doesn’t? He could put the country in serious peril.
The Left is being rolled back on every front, and these sad sacks are wringing their hands? It’s going to be amusing to see them start changing their tune once the God-Emperor’s endeavors start bearing positive fruit.
