With Cory Gardner and Mitt Romney making statements the SCOTUS confirmation moves forward, Senate confirmation hearings to begin soon

Late yesterday and this morning, the Senate Republicans support to move forward with voting on a confirmation of a Supreme Court (SCOTUS) nomination from President Trump, anticipated by week’s end, solidified when Senators Chuck Grassley, Cory Gardner and Mitt Romney said they support a vote on confirmation.

While Senator Chuck Grassley (R, IA, president pro tempore) who serves on the Judiciary Committee was seen as questionable for moving forward, he gave indication yesterday he would not block the process.

Senator Cory Gardner (R, CO) who is in a very tough reelection campaign against former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, issued the following statement late Monday:

And this morning, Senator Mitt Romney (R, UT, a/k/a “Mittens”), stated he would not block the confirmation of President Trump’s SCOTUS nominee:

“My liberal friends have over many decades gotten very used to the idea of having a liberal court but that’s not written in the stars,” the Utah Republican told reporters after this decision.

He called it “appropriate for a nation that is … center-right to have a court which reflects center-right points of view.”

.

And with that statement, the Senate’s confirmation of President Trump’s SCOTUS appointment will move forward once the woman is named.

In preparation, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham wrote the Democratic members of his committee the following:

The 2nd to last paragraph worth repeating:

“Lastly, after the treatment of Justice Kavanaugh I now have a different view of the judicial-confirmation process. Compare the treatment of Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh to that of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan and it’s clear that there already is one set of rules for a Republican president and one set of rules for a Democrat president.”

Lindsey Graham, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, 9/21/20

.

As reported yesterday on McHenry County Blog, the first official step in the Senate after the President makes his SCOTUS nomination is the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings. Graham clearly sending a signal to Senate Democrats there will not be a repeat of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.

So, with the latest developments and in spite of the statements issued by Senators Susan Collins (R, ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R, AK) over the weekend, the confirmation will move forward.

Next article will cover the full contexts of both Collins and Murkowski, since the mainstream media, and even CBN, miss what exactly both Senators said. Moot point now, but still worth applying discernment.

IL-Sen: Supreme Court Confirmation To Move Forward — 17 Comments

  1. Princess Lisa and Snowflake Collins need to be excised by their states!

  2. Why wouldn’t they fill the supreme court opening?

    The constitution says that the president appoints the judge and the senate confirms, so it’s perfectly normal.

    Obama could have tried to appoint a judge in his last year and the senate can simply vote no.

    Again that’s how it’s supposed to work

    The only ones talking about not following the constitution are the democrats.

    Trump should appoint a conservative justice, the senate confirm and then step back and let the left go nuts.

    This is good for Trump bad for Biden.

    The more they talk about packing the court and adding states the more radical the democrats look to the average American.

    This is all really really good for Trump.

  3. **Obama could have tried to appoint a judge in his last year and the senate can simply vote no.**

    You are aware that Obama DID nominate a judge in his last year, right?

  4. Very good decision by Romney. He should have been finishing his second term of the presidency this year. But, it was not to be. He was too nice of a guy in his campaigning against the worst ever president of the US, Barak Hussein Obama, and a majority of voters twice believed the lies and bs from Barak, 2008 and 2012.

    That was an excellent and correct statement by Senator Cory Gardner.

    What next from top Democrats Schumer, Pelosi, Biden? Will they prompt their followers to riot and loot and stamp their feet, scream at the top of their lungs in front of the cameras of the mostly left wing and Democrat media?

  5. They don’t need Collins and Murkowski.

    They can afford to lose 3 votes.

    Romney saying he’s on board is a good sign.

    And I think Collins and Murkowski are BSing anyway.

    Remember when Collins talked like she was going to impeach the president and then did not?

    Didn’t one or both of them give mixed messages on Kavanaugh too, only to affirm him?

    At this point, I would be more worried about someone like Lee or Paul voting no because they don’t have the PERFECT nominee, but I think even that is unlikely.

    The best course of action would be to ram this through as fast as possible, even before the election (NOT in the lame duck session).

    If you can replace RBG BEFORE the election, it will demoralize Democrats and make at least some of them stay home.

    I’m not all too confident that will happen, but that’s what should happen if Republicans want to win big.

  6. I had a nightmare RBG was my nurse in a hospital. She tried to poison me.

  7. Ruth Bader Ginsberg wanted a left wing liberal appointed to replace her position.

    Too bad she did not retire when Obama was president and the Democrats controlled the Senate.

  8. “You are aware that Obama DID nominate a judge in his last year, right?”

    OK so he did officially make a nomination and the senate decided not to confirm.

    That is the Senate’s right.

    What they should have done in 2016 is say nothing and just vote no.

    Anyway it goes, the more the left goes nuts over this and threatens to pack the court the better for Trump.

    Let him make the nomination then someone take away the Twitter phone from him so he can’t say anything.

    If he can manage that the democrats will hang themselves with that rope.

  9. Mitt Romney

    US Senate Election – Utah (2018)

    Republican Primary
    71.7% – Mitt Romney
    28.3% – Mike Kennedy (State Representative)

    General Election
    62.6% – Mitt Romney
    30.9% – Jenny Wilson
    (Salt Lake City Alderperson)

    As a hated man, Mitt won both elections. 🤔😮🔔

  10. He wasn’t so hated when he ran for election but since then has been disliked in Utah.

  11. He probably will face a tough primary in 2024 if Trump wins.

    He was the only republican to vote to impeach Trump.

    I don’t know who in Utah it would be but someone from the Trump base should try to take him out in the primary next time around.

  12. I’d like the Demo-Communists to try and trash the electoral college and get District of Corruption and Puerto Rico in as States.

    30 states would leave the Union!

  13. On second thought, I’m fine with it if Lee or Paul vote no on Barrett if it’s true that she favors MANDATORY VACCINATIONS.

    No judge who supports mandatory vaccinations should be nominated.
