    Default Re: Merrick Garland as Supreme Court nominee

    JCN chief counsel Carrie Severino said in a blog post that Judge Merrick’s record on the bench since 1997 “leads to the conclusion that he would vote to reverse one of Justice Scalia’s most important opinions, D.C. vs. Heller, which affirmed that the Second Amendment confers an individual right to keep and bear arms.”

    Carrie Severino
    She serves as chief counsel and policy director at the Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative legal organization.

    In other words ... a right wing nut.

    If the judge had any brains he would refuse given the republican senate already stated they won't even bring up an Obama nominee. Obama has appointed two left wing nuts jobs to the court.

    Judge Sonia Sotomayor and Solicitor General Elena Kagan

    Don't hold those cards to close ... a pick by Hillary might really throw your mind out of kilter.

    To follow up my last post about the republicans holding their ground ... well some know there is a very real possibility they will lose in November and have said they may confirm Mr. Merrick after the elections ... if they lose.

    Republican senators on Thursday raised the possibility they would confirm Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland before the U.S. president leaves office in January if Democrats retain the White House in the Nov. 8 election.
    Republicans are concerned that if Hillary Clinton, Obama's former secretary of state and the Democratic front-runner, wins the presidential election, she could send the Senate a far more liberal nominee after taking office.
    Smart move. And here I didn't think any republicans actually thought that far in advance.

    Senators say they might confirm Obama's high court pick after election

    As per usual,Bean is unequivocally and completely ''CLUELESS''

    Merrick Garland is a Conservative on Economic Issues,always Ruling on the side of Corporations and Wall St.,but is sometimes Liberal when it comes to Social Issues.In other words,the ''SAME'' as Obama and Hillary.This guy was a Corporate Defense Attorney who worked for the Firm that was ''FOREVER'' Defending Big Tobacco!!This is the ''LAST GUY'' who should be deciding anything.These are just the type of people who need to be ''ROOTED OUT'' of Office,not ''PUT IN''.

    So let's not,for just once,bring forward a Highly Respected Defense Attorney that has ''FOUGHT''for the ''PEOPLE'' All His or Her Life when we can bring in ''ANOTHER CORPORATE HACK'' with a High IQ.
    Thank You Mr.President

    ''ONCE AGAIN'',another Prime Example of ''THIS IS WHY TRUMP''!!!!
