Why would I need to defend a Conservative Supreme Court?

Whoever wins the election gets to decide whoís on the court

I wouldnít expect you to defend a Liberal court if Hillary had won nor would I expect my Liberal friends to Be wringing their hands or gnashing their teeth either.

Elections have consequences and after Obamaís 2 picks having a Republican pick 2/3 is no harm

I think it is a good thing if there is a balance on the court, but based on how disgracefully the Democrats behaved over Kavanaugh I think it would be great Karma if Trump stuck another conservative on the court. They now deserve to be railroaded in my opinion, because itís clear they will stop at absolutely nothing to gain and hold power (exactly like the Republicans)

You don't have to defend anything if you don't want to.

I'm simply looking for a conservative opinion on why a conservative Supreme Court is a good thing. You've stated on multiple occasions how conservative Supreme Court nominations excite you and are one of the reasons you are happy Trump is there despite your otherwise overall opposition to him. Yet now you appear incapable of offering any opinion on why you would be happy, beyond the "making liberal heads explode" horseshit.

But anyway, I'll drop it.

i Just have you a defense of Citizens United-from the WAPO no less



No you didn't. You posted articles on how the Dems are playing on the field created by Citizens United, therefore, it was the right Supreme Court decision. That's not a defense.

Keep twisting. Dems were against CU because they thought it gave an advantage to The Republicans. Instead it gave them an advantage. Outrage over Citizens united is a pile of utter nonsense.

Outrage outrage outrage over everything. Outrage over outrage or lack there of. Outrage over intensity and timeliness of outrage. Outrage over a dancing video. Outrage that Republicans were outraged at the outrage of a Congresswoman dancing when she was in college. Outrage over gender neutral pronouns. Outrage that Iím outraged that a man can go into a ladies bathroom. (Iím not BTW) Outraged over a Christmas tree on the stage of the nutcracker. Outrage that people aren outraged that the PTA cancelled the trip to the Nutcracker. Outrage over the enforcement of border laws. Outrage over kids in cages. Outraged that I didnít check to see that that the kids in cages outrage was perpetrated under Obama

Still no defense of or positive support in favour of a conservative Supreme Court.

Youíre spewing on about ďoutrageĒ; meanwhile your entire political outlook as espoused on this discussion board is based on your negative perception of the ď mainstream mediaĒ and supposed liberal/Democratic hypocrisy. Níer a positive word in defense of the GOP or conservative principles in general. The very epitome of the politics of grievance.

I guess I donít get the nuances of your question

I would imagine Liberals would want a Democratic President to appoint Liberal judges

How is wanting a a Republican President to appoint Conservative judges an extreme view or an endorsement of Trump?

There were plenty of people on the left calling for RBG to retire early in Obamaís second term. Why did she stick around? Was she waiting for her replacement to be picked by the first woman President?

On top of that she had made blatantly political statements which should disqualify her from voting on anything to do with Trump. Maybe she could head off to New Zealand on vacation with that crew from Liverpool who just got deported. She might keep them in line

Iím not talking about the politics and hypocrisy of who does what and where or when.

Iím asking you why a conservative Supreme Court, which you support, and which has been a focus of the US right (very effectively so) for the past 35 years, should be seen as a positive for the US?

Would a left wing court be seen as positive for the US?

If Hillary has won, thatís what we would have had

So you have nothing to offer? No defense of Citizens United and the like? No defense of workplace arbitration? No defense of gerrymandering? No defense of the coming ban on access to abortion? No defense of allowing companies to opt out of having their health insurance plans cover contraception? These are all important matters on the right.

On the other hand, to name a couple, if Hillary had won, LBGTQ rights would definitely be protected.

There would be restrictions on the wanton environmental exploitation and destruction that Trump and his henhouse foxes seem determined to inflict on US public and other lands and waters.

The Supreme Court might push back on the tipping of the balance completely in favour of corporations when it comes to worker rights and protections and their ability to combine cases.

There might be some hope of some sanity on the gun front.


Citizens United my hole.

So still nothing to say. Its all about watching the libtards squirm. Carry on...

Whatís the question?

See Heganboyís post, and mine about the Supreme Court which you answered with the exploding liberal heads comment.

What exactly is the question? You made an statement and put a question mark at the end of it

How will a 6-3 Federalist Society majority on the Supreme Court for the next 20 years or more benefit you or any of the rest of us?

That question doesnít make sense

We have a Republican President. Of course he should appoint conservative judges, just like Obama appointed liberal judges.

The only reason we have the Federalist Society involved is that somehow past Republican presidents got duped into appointing liberals

Interesting how none of the Democratic appointees even end up the swing vote or on the right. Iím sure they have some internal litmus test that they apply.  FFS Obama even appointed Kagan who was never even a judge so nothing could be pinned in her during the hearings

If you donít want to answer just say so.

Youíve expressed, on numerous occasions, support for Trump appointing justices, even joking about Bader Ginsbergís health or retirement. Given that all GOP justices come from the Federalist Society, you support that too, but call it a conservative majority if you wish.

If youíre happy to see Trump put these justices on the court, ensuring a majority for probably the next generation, then one would assume you have real legitimate reasons. So far, the only reasons youíve given are your satisfaction at seeing liberals upset and fearful. Which is a pretty poor and vacuous reason for anything.

So Iím asking you (again), what are your reasons? How is this Supreme Court with the conservative majority for the next generation going to benefit you or any of the rest of us?

It's not some fear mongering source...it's the liberal beloved CNN.

Fact: http://longisland.news12.com/story/39763068/police-ms13-members-stabbed-classmate-in-huntington-station

Fact: https://edition.cnn.com/2017/12/21/americas/mexico-bodies-bridge/index.html

I await your apology.

I stand corrected. CNN actually is a fear mongering source. Hysteria daily, unhinged commentators and presenters riling up a brainwashed viewership to repeat their slogans and take the likes of Maxine Waters, Pelosi, Sharpton etc. seriously.

Biggest danger for the US is how these viewers can't think for themselves.

Out of all the people and leaders on the left, you single out Sharpton and Waters to complete the list of fever swamp bogeymen... another tick in the Foxcommander column.

One area DeGea far exceeds other keepers is using those feet to make saves. The one he made from the Kane shot towards the near post side of his goal was amazing in the speed of his reaction. He did a similar one last year from Matip against Liverpool at Anfield.

Only comparable keeper Iíve seen in terms of agility was Grobellaar. Although Alisson is looking impressive in his reactions so far too, underworked though he might be in that respect.

Whitey,
How can you agree with Trump on taxes and regulation?

He doesn't have a tax policy, and while I'm good with deregulating business surely some protection of the health of Americans and the environment may be a win all around?

Will we get something different from this?

I really just want to see liberal heads explode

Enjoying seeing idiots get offended by everything and anything and then tying themselves up in knots trying to outdo each other in the PC stakes is not an endorsement of Trump

Regarding the Supreme Court I said at the time that Merrick Garland should have gotten his hearing and being confirmed. Of course I will support a Republican SJC nominee to replace a Republican SJC nominee, especially someone as well qualified and respected as justice Kavanaugh (in spite of the disgraceful attempted hit job)

And you STILL havenít answered the questions!

The Trumpbots are deeply afraid of whites becoming a minority in the US.

Why does that excite you Sid?

Bump for Sid.

Whether or not Sid is excited by the prospect of whites joining all other races as minorities in the US, there is clearly a segment of the US right wing which is terrified by that. Just this week we are seeing Steve King FINALLY being called out by his GOP colleagues (what took them so long??), even as Trump tries to feign ignorance of who King is despite previously stating outright and also demonstrating by his own independent statements and actions that he agrees with much of what King espouses.
