Weekly Wrap-Up

The Conservative Party has launched a new petition drive telling Sen. Chuck Schumer to clear the way for Judge Neil Gorsuch ‘s confirmation.  Sen. Schumer needs to hear from as many New Yorkers as possible, because as it stands he is playing politics with Supreme Court.

Ironically, the Democrats’ blockade is a clear sign that they have lost their fight to block the Gorsuch nomination. 

How would you describe Chuck Schumer’s opposition to Judge Gorsuch? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll.

The Republicans’ response to a filibuster should be the Dirty Harry classic: “Go ahead, make my day” – especially after Gorsuch’s masterful performance during his confirmation hearings.  

The Democrats tried to bring Gorsuch down, but “nobody laid a glove on him,” as Wesley Pruden points out in The Washington Times. 

What did you find most impressive about Judge Gorsuch during his confirmation hearings? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

While some Democrats (especially “red state” Senators up for reelection in 2018) are desperate for a deal to get the confirmation over and done with, Sen. Lindsey Graham says that if there is a filibuster Republicans will have no choice but to “go nuclear” and eliminate that obstruction. 

What do you think will be the final outcome of Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll.

The Democrats’ favorite narrative – that President Trump is somehow a Russian agent – continues to collapse. As White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer notes, there is more evidence that CNN colluded with the Clinton campaign.

Meanwhile it’s increasingly looking like there is more to the story behind concerns that Obama Administration officials had their eyes on President Trump.

The President has made clear his intention to end the U.S.-taxpayer-funded U.N. gravy train, and in the New York Post Betsy McCaughey says that horrific U.N. “peacekeepers” would be a good place to start with the funding cuts.

Remember how Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand pulled strings to help a man get around President Trump’s immigration order, and then he was charged with sexual abuse of a minor? 

Well, the Democrats’ “open borders” obsession continues to have devastating consequences, this time in a “sanctuary city” in Maryland. Border patrol experts say that the Obama Administration’s lax border enforcement set the stage for the attack – and the state’s Republican governor says that because of sanctuary policies, parents can no longer be assured that their children are safe in Maryland schools. 

The liberals’ response? Accusing outraged parents of “racism and xenophobia.” Unbelievable. 

Have a great weekend!
