  1. Eavenson: “There’s a state senator in Texas that was talking about legislation to require conviction before we could receive that forfeiture money.”

    Trump!: “Who is that state senator? I want to hear his name. We’ll destroy his career…”

    Less than 24 hours after an angry Trump tweeted “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

    .. the President has changed his mind and has decided not to see anyone in court – if only for the time being – because according to Reuters, his administration is not currently planning to appeal the temporary hold on his travel ban to the Supreme Court, a White House official said Friday according to multiple media sources.

    but,but,but,but,but,but,but,

    you’ve been had. again.

  2. And much of these Episcopal social justice issues are mirrored in Catholic circles – and Scalia was a staunch Catholic. Do you want to dig him up and quiz him too?

  3. That face looks familiar…. Hmmmmmm….

    Lemme see. Oh, yeah, that’s the same smarmy, ingratiating, disarming, glad handing, lying hypocrite face I’ve seen on every politician of no principles for the last… as long as I’ve been alive.

    Where to find another sort of man? Swamp Things swarm to the Swamp.

  4. No wonder the Left is liking this guy he’s Episcopal and that is the same as Methodist when it comes to guns. No clue about the 2A.

  5. His church is very liberal. He lives in Berkeley East, and he has already questioned the very man who nominated him

  6. Actually, I may have to recuse myself from commenting on him. He ruled in my favor on a case that ended up in his appeals court. I myself have left the Episcopal church a couple years ago. They used to be very conservative but have gone radical left. They try to keep most of the radical speech off the pulpit but at my old church they are taking in God knows how many refugees. They are taking huge amounts of money from the govt to resettle. I really enjoyed the services and the liturgy. But I stopped altogether when at a service for the homeless where we served meals, a pastor spoke of how the cops were just gunning down people on the streets. That was the last time I stepped foot in their doors.
    Like I said, I truly enjoyed the services and the liturgy on Sundays. But behind the scenes, they have turned radical left and may actually be aiding muslims who have killed Christians in the mid-east.
    Conservative, pro-Trump lawyers in Colorado say Gorsuch is no Roberts. Not yet.
    Rainman……….

    yes, it is fair to bring this up, and more.

    The Trump train will run its course. Be prepared.
    Pay heed to all the Cashless society warnings.

    Can’t help but think of Joe Campbell’s “Hero With a Thousand Faces.”

    with our new “Hero” here to save the universe, (sarc)…only question I got: “Will Gorsuch put on the mask, or take it off?”

  9. David has good points in the post and good questions.
    The missed point is there at least a dozen and a half mainline church *.orgs involved in resettlement activities (aka *.gov profit). Those orgs pretty much span the spectrum of Sunday mornings.

    Manchurians will be Manchurians.

  10. “the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly.”

    I don’t see the word “lightly” in the Second Amendment, but for that matter who follows the Constitution in government anymore anyway. In any case combining “may” with “lightly” is open to very wide wiggly weasel interpretation that lawyers grow fat on.

    Codrea: “The next time a gun group asks you for help to get Gorsuch confirmed, ask them why. If they tell you he’ll be good for gun owners, ask them how they know.”

    Asking tough questions isn’t popular in “conservative” circles. We’re all just supposed to close ranks and go with the party line. So, hey, let’s just trust the oligarch with a NYC carry permit (that us unwashed commoners could never get) to do what’s in our best interest without further questions.

    Yep, still waiting on any pro-gun EOs that were supposed to go through during the first hour in office. I know it’s not popular to bring up promises made on the campaign trail –kind of like “read my lips, no new taxes” with Bush the First– but some of us have longer memories than RINOS, low information voters, and the average goldfish out there.

    After a long line of abuses and betrayals during my relatively short lifetime so far, anyone taking a position of power has to prove themselves at this point not to be just another peddler of lies while serving up oppression. No more free passes will be given.

  11. He should be rigorously questioned and cross questioned. If he’s not the conservative constitutionalist he’s said to be…..bye bye!! We don’t need another John Roberts!!

  12. It seems to be getting harder to find truly conservative churches. Conservative Libertarian is better.

    “We’re all God’s children.”
    “God knows no boundaries.”
    “…red and yellow, black and white. They are precious in his sight…”
    “Jesus was a Pacifist.”

  13. Trump is a speed bump in the world race to totalitarianism. We are in the eye of the hurricane and will be slapped again after it passes over, probably with gusto because we helped screw up their momentum.
    Nothing and no one will stop for very long the march to our NWO planet.
    Make sure you have a PALN.

    • The cops are a speed bump to freedom and liberty in the world race to totalitarianism.

      Worst of the Month — January

      February 9, 2017 @ 3:53 PM by Tim Lynch

      So for January we have selected the case of Philippe Holland, who was an innocent man shot by Philadelphia police.

      According to news reports, here is what happened: Holland was a college student who worked part-time delivering take-out food. Two years ago, he was delivering a cheeseburger to a house when two officers in plain clothes responded to the area because of a report about gunshots. Holland says he thought he was about to get robbed because the officers approached him without identifying themselves. Frightened, Holland jumped in his car and tried to drive away quickly. The police officers opened fire and Holland now has a permanent seizure disorder and has bullet fragments in his brain.

      Last month, the city agreed to pay $4.4 million to settle a lawsuit brought by Holland, reportedly the largest settlement for a police shooting in the city’s history.

      The officers involved in the shooting–Kevin Hanvey and Mitchell Farrell– claim that they feared for their lives and thus had to shoot. They were not prosecuted. Even after the passage of two years the department says their discipline is yet “to be determined.” Hmm.

      Here are the nine reports of police misconduct tracked for Wednesday, February 8, 2017:

      Surprise, Arizona: An officer resigned after his domestic violence conviction stemming from an incident in Las Vegas involving his now-ex-fiancée. ow.ly/SeMG308NIyO
      Update: University of North Dakota (First reported 11-09-15): A now-former officer was sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $16,000 in restitution for child pornography possession. ow.ly/QtII308NJs4
      Update: Richmond, California: (First reported 11-01-16) One of the four officers who were recommended to be fired for their roles in the Bay Area child exploitation and prostitution scandal was reinstated after serving a one-month suspension. According to the report, “Eleven Richmond police officers were implicated in the investigation. Five have been disciplined, but continue to work for the department. Two have left the department for reasons unrelated to the teenager who used the name Celeste Guap while working as a prostitute. Another two have been fired from the department.” Several other departments have officers that were caught up in the scandal. ow.ly/4J2B308NJSS
      Update: North Andover, Massachusetts (First reported 01-23-17): An officer retired after being arrested for a DUI crash in his cruiser while on a work trip in Pennsylvania. His BAC was recorded at .219. ow.ly/LxVm308NKlM

  14. GOA done me wrong. If this guy is a life long Episcopalian, NO FUCKING WAY should he EVER be on the SC. Anti-gun, and pro-bring-on-the-fucking-moslem-flood. Damn it to hell.

  15. wealthy farmer

    So Gorsuch is a fucking EPISCOPALIAN?
    RUN DONT WALK!
    The church of left wing privileged trust fund insanity.
    The church of extremo-homo-queer-tranny-everything
    If this is where and WHAT he worships, his trajectory on the Supreme Court is VERY PREDICTABLE!!!

  16. DWEEZIL THE WEASEL

    What does the Good Book say about false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing? The Whiskeypalians in Amerika have been in the vanguard of every left-wing cause in Amerika since the early 1960’s. Show me who you are with and I will tell you who you are.

  17. We all got sold a deceptive deal in the name of John Roberts, supposed conservative. Due caution advised. This nomination deserves detailed scrutiny but, I seriously doubt anyone in congress have the aptitude for such.

  18. Gorsuch – who clerked for cuck turncoat Anthony Kennedy – is nothing like a Constitutionalist. He is (one reads) “against interpretation”. That is, he accepts as “established law” exactly whatever “is” at the time and place. Thus he will support Heller (which was full of holes for gun-grabbers to crawl through), faggot fake marriage, Obamacare, Citizens United, “hate-crime” laws, open-borders, and etc.. And on top of all this, an Episcopalian. He might as well be Jew #5 on the Court. There’s a reason why he’s already got 7 demoncrat senators on board (=59 votes), less just one for the magic 60. So exciting…actually, same old dog-and-pony show.

    Reblogged this on FOR GOD AND COUNTRY.

  20. In the real world none give a fuck about Gorsuch or the supremes. Purchased Pedos Pilfering Pilgrims Pockets for Patrons.
