courting competence: president trump's supreme justice pick


to fill a supreme court seat shamefully left vacant for nearly a year by an obstructionist republican-controlled senate, president trump has nominated a jurist whose record and philosophy demand intense scrutiny — but whose high-caliber service easily earns him a hearing, and a floor vote. democrats goading their senators to deliver trump and his party payback for the shabby way the gop treated president obama and judge merrick garland should stand down. america needed a functioning, nine-member high court long ago, and it needs one even more badly now, as the trump administration looks poised to continually test its constitutional authority. judge neil gorsuch — a conservative appellate judge in the mold of the late antonin scalia who, at 49, is poised to serve decades on the court — wil

falcons’ 2010 emails show concern over ‘excessive’ painkiller use


a string of emails that began in 2010 with the atlanta falcons’ head trainer and reached all the way to owner arthur blank showed a franchise worried about its “excessive” reliance on painkillers to treat players and the potential embarr ment that could cause the team and the nfl. one topic raised in the email chain concerned the review by an outside agency that found the team spent $81,000 on prescriptions for medications for players in 2009 — nearly three times the league average. nearly every recipient on the email chain — from blank, president rich mckay and general manager thomas dimitroff to then-head athletic trainer marty lauzon — is still with the team, which plays new england in the super bowl on sunday.“that’s being litigated now. that’s not something we’re going discuss right n






donald trump’s supreme court ‘survivor’ reaches a dramatic conclusion


if the suspense building ahead of president trump's supreme court announcement seemed familiar, then you might be a fan of reality television. (gillian brockell/the washington post)the season finale of "supreme court: donald trump edition" was — if i'm being honest — a little anticlimactic.trump announced tuesday night that he had selected colorado appeals court judge neil gorsuch to fill the seat left vacant by the death of antonin scalia 11 months ago. in the run-up to trump's prime-time announcement, which was carried live by every network, most of the reporting pointed to gorsuch as the pick — with most people hedging their bets only because trump is, well, trump.but, if trump's pick for the court wound up being predictable and traditional, the path that led to the gorsuch pick was any

twelve days after supreme court justice antonin scalia died, in february 2016, the republican presidential candidates took the stage for the final debate before super tuesday. conservative radio host hugh hewitt, a panelist that night in houston, directed his first question to ted cruz."do you trust mr. trump to nominate conservative justices?" hewitt asked.like others in the conservative media, hewitt was concerned that trump — who previously described himself as "very pro-choice" — would be unreliable. after cruz deflected the inquiry, hewitt questioned trump directly."will you commit to voters tonight that religious liberty will be an absolute litmus test for anyone you appoint, not just to the supreme court, but to all courts?" he asked."yes, i would," trump replied.if hewitt had any l

key decisions from supreme court nominee neil gorsuch


neil gorsuch, currently a judge on the u.s. court of appeals for the 10th circuit in denver, would be the youngest supreme court justice since justice clarence thomas was confirmed in 1991.he is a proponent of originalism--meaning that judges should attempt to interpret the words of the constitution as they were understood at the time they were written--and a textualist who considers only the words of the law being reviewed, not legislators’ intent or the consequences of the decision.here are some of his key decisions:hobby lobby stores v. sebelius and little sisters of the poor home for the aged v. burwellboth cases had to do with the obamacare mandate that employee insurance coverage provide all approved contraceptives. gorsuch’s rulings seemed instructive; he noted that would require th






trump makes his pick, but it’s still anthony kennedy’s supreme court


president trump has chosen his first nominee, but it remains justice anthony m. kennedy’s supreme court. the question is how much longer he wants it. kennedy, 80 and celebrating his 29th year on the court this month, will remain the pivotal member of the court no matter how the warfare between republicans and democrats plays out. on almost every big social issue, neither the court’s liberal, democratic-appointed justices nor kennedy’s fellow ­republican-appointed conservative colleagues can prevail without him.[for conservatives, a year of letdown at the supreme court]that is why an undercurrent of trump’s first choice for the court was whether it would soothe kennedy, making him feel secure enough to retire and let this president choose the person who would succeed him.

trump stumbles over his words while nominating gorsuch to scotus

"by nominating judge neil gorsuch of the united states supreme court to be of the united states supreme court, and i would like to ask judge gorsuch and his wonderful wife, louise, to please step forward. please, louise, judge — here they come, here they come," trump said, unleashing a torrent of scathing sarcasm over social media. gorsuch, a federal appellate judge for the tenth circuit, was not, and has never been, "of the united states supreme court." he will have to be confirmed by the senate before he could potentially fill the vacancy left by justice antonin scalia's death last february.
