One of the main reasons that I advocated for the election of Donald Trump was the breakdown of the Supreme Court. If Hillary Clinton had won the court would have been at best 5-4 liberal leaning. I personally do not believe that Anton Scalia died of natural causes. I think that he was assassinated in an attempt to make sure that no matter what happened in the election a liberal justice would be appointed. I am sure that many people will label me a conspiracy nut for that idea, but keep in mind that the Clintons are connected to over 100 strange and in some case impossible to believe deaths. Is it that big a stretch to wonder if she might want to remove a conservative Justice so that she would be able to start her Presidency with a favorable liberal court?
I don’t often agree with Mitch McConnell but his decision not to allow a vote on Merit Garland was a savior for our country.
If Clinton had won we would have had a liberal justice in Neil Gorsuch place. Several of the decisions of the past few days would have gone differently than they did.
The Court upheld Trump’s travel ban which was intended to keep terrorists out of our country. This was a 5-4 decision and certainly would have gone the other way if Gorsuch was replaced by a liberal.
Of course, if Clinton had been elected there would not have been a travel ban to uphold or vote down. Clinton would have not only opened our borders and allowed almost anyone to flood across but would have invited hundreds of thousands from terrorist countries to take up residence in our communities.
Another ruling that came down this morning in a 5-4 decision ruled in favor of non-union employees in case from Illinois. These workers who were not union member sued to stop the practice of the union collecting dues from them even though they did not join nor did they agree with the practices of the union. Because of this ruling, these workers will no longer be charged union dues unless they specifically agree to have such dues deducted from their checks.
The union had argued that these workers were getting the benefit of the bargaining power of the union and should, therefore, have to pay for that benefit. Of course, the Democrats are crying in their beer because they need the unions to have as much money as possible to give them to support their campaigns.
While these are just two examples of how the court is changed because of Gorsuch, many more will be brought in the next two to six years that will impact the way our freedoms are treated by the government. Hopefully, a couple of the dinosaurs on the court will retire and Trump will appoint more conservative justices to take their place before a case for gun control reaches the court.
It was just announced that Anthony Kennedy is going to retire and that makes this article all the more important.
Again, thank God, for President Trump.
