Republicans Clear Way For Gorsuch Confirmation With'Nuclear Option

Nebraska's two U.S. Senators applaud senate confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. CNN reported the vote to be 54-45, with only three democrats voting to confirm the Colorado judge.

While Both Republicans and Democrats mourn a loss of collegiality, both sides - except for a few Democrats - voted along party lines to support their parties' escalation tactics.

Both of Indiana's Senators, Sen. "It's unfortunate that faced with the idea of having to put forth a new and better nominee for all of America, Senate leaders have instead run roughshod over long-established rules and guidelines so they could get their way".

Gorsuch's confirmation Friday was preceded by a Senate floor showdown Thursday in which Democrats initially mounted a filibuster, denying Gorsuch the 60 votes needed to proceed.

More than 21000 expected at Trump's first Easter Egg Roll
In the sketch, McCarthy's Spicer showed up sporting a bunny suit for a press conference with a bunch of children . Maybe Berman isn't aware of this, but the Easter Bunny and egg rolls are not actually part of Christian theology.

Republicans, possessing a 52-48 Senate majority, on Thursday overcame a ferocious Democratic effort to block a confirmation vote by resorting to a rule change known as the "nuclear option". He also tried to adjourn until the evening, but was also unsuccessful. Gorsuch is expected to hear arguments in 13 cases. "In fact, I am confident we will".

"It is an unprecedented and disappointing day in our chamber".

Most conservative legal groups reacted favorably to the news that Gorsuch was one the three finalists for the open slot left in the wake of Scalia's sudden death. Unfortunately, Judge Gorsuch is not that person. The move is likely to fuel ideologically-driven nominations from presidents in the future, dealing a powerful blow to the bipartisanship normally seen on Supreme Court nominees. Invoking the nuclear option was irresponsible and a far cry from Republicans' commitment to institutionalism.

Senate confirmation of Mr Gorsuch, 49, would restore the nine-seat court's 5-4 conservative majority, and enable Mr Trump to leave an indelible mark on the Supreme Court, as well as fulfill a top campaign promise.

Such wins give lot of confidence: Gambhir
Earlier, Robin Uthappa struck a gritty 68 from 39 balls to help KKR recover from a jittery start and post 172 for six. Explaining the decision, skipper Gambhir said since Narine can "hit the ball big", he was promoted up the order.

"But this vote isn't actually about President Trump".

"I commend Senator Dean Heller and his colleagues in the Senate who supported this nomination". But his repeated refusal to engage on specific Supreme Court cases or policy issues frustrated Democrats concerned that his lighter judicial record on matters, ranging from abortion rights, to environmental protection and campaign finance law, coupled with his refusal to denounce Trump personally for his attacks on federal judges, made it hard to determine his judicial philosophy and potential to be an independent check on the White House. "In doing so, they have deeply damaged the integrity of the Senate and the Supreme Court itself". Battle Born Progress leads a statewide coalition called Nevadans for Judicial Progress.

But, Dr. Barbara Perry, Director of Presidential Studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center and a former Judicial Fellow at the US Supreme Court, told The Independent that she does not feel the rule change "will change perceptions of the jurists" on the Supreme Court.

After Trump nominated Gorsuch on January 31, he essentially enjoyed a stealth confirmation process, as near daily stories from the White House overshadowed the fight. "I was proud to vote to confirm him today".

Christians celebrate Easter across conflict-torn Mideast
All the religions of the world except four are based in pure philosophy. "And may the peace of our Lord Jesus remain with us all". God is also the best explanation for the origin of life in the universe and the appearance of design in biology.
