Meet the New Supreme Court Justice

Neil Gorsuch, a judge on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, will be the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, according to a ton of sources inside and outside the White House. He graduated from Harvard Law School and has a doctorate in philosophy from Oxford Universty. He has written extensively on life issues and euthanasia. Justice Scalia was a huge fan of Neil Gorsuch and appreciated his rise through the judiciary.

Judge Gorsuch is the one nominee who matches Antonin Scalia’s intellectual pedigree and will unite all the factions within the Republican Party. This is a very wise move by President Trump. Even his most ardent critics on the right will have to commend President Trump for this nomination.

It is rock solid. In 2006, Neil Gorsuch was so uncontroversial that the Senate confirmed him unanimously on a voice vote. Even Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton supported Gorsuch. Chuch Schumer did as well. Even now, Barack Obama’s Solicitor General has taken to the New York Times to encourage Democrats to support him.

The Gorsuch nomination is a home run.
