HE IS A LIAR AND A TRAITOR. A ZIONIST ISRAELI AGENDA CRIMINAL. IF THATS YOUR IDEA OF WHAT SHOULD SIT ON THE COURT .YOUR SORRILY INCORRECT. R

Dear R:

I got this from Wikipedia:

“President Barack Obama made two successful appointments to the Supreme Court of the United States. The first was Judge Sonia Sotomayor[1] to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice David H. Souter.[2] Sotomayor was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 6, 2009, by a vote of 68–31. The second appointment was that of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace the retired John Paul Stevens. Kagan was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 5, 2010, by a vote of 63–37.

“During his final year in office, Obama had an opportunity to fill a third Supreme Court vacancy, following the February 13, 2016, death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. On March 16, 2016, he nominated Merrick Garland, the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to the Court.[3] However, Republican leaders in the Senate announced that they planned to withhold voting on any potential nominee until a new president was elected. Senate Democrats responded that there was sufficient time to vote on a nominee before the election.[4] Consequently, no action was taken on the nomination, which expired in January 2017.”

I assume Hillary would have nominated very similar people to those appointed by Obama. Of course Gorsuch is not perfect. He’s no Ron Paul or Andrew Napolitano. But, who’s better from a libertarian point of view? Gorsuch, or these three others, Sotomayor, Kagan and Garland? QED.

Insofar as Zionism is concerned, I suggest you read this material:
