President Trump Has The Option To Make The Supreme Court Conservative For Generations.

On Wednesday afternoon, Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy announced his decision to retire, effective July 31, 2018, from the highest court in the United States after nearly three decades. Subsequent to Justice Antonin Scalia’s death towards the end of then-President Obama’s 2nd term in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump turned the Supreme Court to a conservative majority.

49 year old Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as the successor of Scalia only 11 days after the inauguration. Debatably, however, Justice Gorsuch has sometimes voted in leftist means. For instance, in the case ‘Session vs. Dimaya’, Gorsuch voted with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor,  Elena Kagan, and Stephen Breyer for James Dimaya, a Phillipines native, to not be deported due to his aggravated felonies being ‘unconstitutionally vague’.

Nevertheless, the retirement of Justice Kennedy has the left worried. President Trump released a list of 25 potential candidates to be the next elected Supreme Court justice. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) has emerged as one of the most conservative members of the Senate. Many of his constituents, such as Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), has said he will advocate for Senator Lee.

“I think the single best choice that President Trump could make to fill this vacancy is @SenMikeLee“, he said in a Fox News interview Wednesday afternoon.

Abortion activists are anxious and on edge about the infamous Roe v. Wade case being overturned and repealed as well as same-sex marriage and future immigration cases being hardened.

Now, liberal votes will become the minority and, if one of the 25 candidates are elected, swing votes will become extinct for an incessant amount of time.

  1. Georgie.
    I’m curious about your use of the word, “incessant “. “will become extinct for an incessant amount of time.”
    Que quieres decir?

    • In this context (with the assumption that Kavanaugh is appointed) the SCOTUS is 5-4 leaning conservative. With him in SCOTUS, it would become 6-3 still leaning conservative. RBG and Sotomayor would have a difficult time convincing the conservative judges to favor their decision.

      It will be incessant because this majority lead will feel forever if you’re a liberal. Let me know if you have any other questions.
