President Trump's win is a major victory for the Supreme Court! Yes maybe he used the system on his way up but this is a major victory for us, beyond money.

Hadn't voted since Goldwater in 64. The SCOTUS was the reason I registered, and crawled out of my hobbit hole to vote for Trump.

The wench is on the tube right now, finally speaking. But she really hasn't given Trump a nod yet. Praising her supporters, and the knee gro. She just thanked all who have given to her. I would have too, if drones gave me 300 mil.

Hillary for prison 2017!

But who? Who gets that seat? Will Obama propose someone that the house and senate will approve before Donny can get his own chair warm? I would in their position. Definitely don't want to hand him that win too.

What we really need is a major investigation into the Roberts blackmail or bribery issue.

That crooked bastard needs to be exposed and resign or be jailed.

There are two people who I would love to see get the nod, but both have said they're not interested in the position.
Those two people are Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. I'm hopeful one of them has a change of heart. I think either can do much more for our country as a member of SCOTUS than in their present positions.

Wrong. They want to show that Trump isn't their boss. Didn't many of them say they were voting Clinton? They can select someone. Someone old. Propose it to Obie, and show that if he doesn't file that nomination ... Trump will propose some 20 year old who'll be there for the next 60 years.

No way, BHO is done. If you recall he was a vocal one who opposed GW from getting a late term SCOTUS appointment. It's payback dude.

I'd love to,see Judge Napo - but Trump did publicly disclose his initial pool of candidates

This was back in May when he was trying to convince Conservative he'd be safe on this issue

"The list includes: Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado, Raymond Gruender of Missouri, Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin and Don Willett of Texas."

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/18/politics/donald-trump-supreme-court-nominees/

I personally don't know their records but I did read several articles by conservatives that characterized these candidates as originalists

I would not favor Cruz, I still don't trust him with their links the to bushes and Goldman Sachs

Also consider that Ginsburg is 83, Kennedy is 80, and Breyer is 78. Trump may be naming several members to the supreme court.
Also consider that Clarence Thomas has expressed desires to retire. Trump theoretically could replace 5 justices (Scalia, Thomas, Ginsburg, Kennedy and Breyer) and maybe Chief Justice Roberts if evidence shows that he ruled in favor of Obamacare because he was compromised. I think the Roberts affair is something yet to raise its ugly head that will infuriate the public.

You have to admit that Trump is very open minded about his SCOTUS justice possibilities. The usual names like Mike Lee, Sykes have been floated but Trump is even considering Texas Judge Don Willet who has actually taken a few shots (9+ times) at Trump during the run up to the election. If Trump was as shallow and thin skinned as the MSM said he was then Willet would have never made the list.

Think about that for a second.

I defy you to name one person who understands the constitution better than Ted Cruz. Like him or not, the guy knows the constitution inside and out.
Allen Derschowitz (last honest Dem) said Cruz was by far his best student st Harvard

Not being argumentative just answering the question, but I'd say Mark Levin has a n equivalent understanding

I didn't take it as you being argumentative at all.

Just to be clear. There's several who may know the constitution as well, or nearly as well, but I seriously doubt anyone has a better grasp.

I highly recommend both of Levins books on the subject

men in black, and recently, the Liberty amendments

The bad outweighs the good. Knowledge can be used for good or it can be used for evil....I'll pass!

I think Mark Levin would be a excellent choice but I think he'd prefer not to be a part of the SCOTUS and its own politics.

The Mark is smart.

Not crowing here but I did contact his heritage(?) And, it was way before I landed on my head here, still have the e-mails. The point was argued and their/his point prevailed.

I do like listening to him even if his subject matter is the same to me. At least he don't talk about his dogs bowel movements.

Speaking of doggie bowel movements....Is that wiener related to the doggy bowel movement $avage guy?

Thomas has said he wants to retire soon. He was only holding off until the election. So that makes 4 that could be replaced by Trump. In a earlier post I stated this was the only reason I came out of my hobbit hole to vote since 64.

Nobody can doubt that statement. Cruz has a firm grasp and can speak his point.
I just believe that after this election cycle Cruz's name won't be anywhere near anything Trump.
Just sayin'

Agreed. Cruz hurt his brand image in the long run. The question is can Cruz rehabilitate that image or is he forever going to be looked at as damaged goods to the electorate that put Trump in the White House?

Just as Trump used the press to his advantage, many times during this campaign, Senator Cruz can probably be used in certain ways.
Sometimes in sports if you ticked off the coach you either didn't play at all or else you got put out there to take the hits.
Point man.
