On day one of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Democrat senators employed toddler-style tactics in an effort to interrupt the proceedings.
Our triumphs are in establishing communities that offer real meaning and fellowship. We will need to do this even more as our legal and policy goals are achieved.
As a result of their shared philosophies, Ray Kethledge and Neil Gorsuch are staunch defenders of religious liberty, the Second Amendment, and the separation of powers.
If judges are a vindication of Trump, are they also a vindication of Mitch McConnell? And if so, does a good Supreme Court really compensate for a lousy Congress?
It’s still early in the Trump era, and we really have no idea how it will all turn out. But to this point, the Constitution is winning.
The Supreme Court has taken a constitutional provision intended to limit government power and turned it into a mandate for unlimited government power.

I will not agree with all his rulings. But if Gorsuch is confirmed, Americans will gain a Supreme Court Justice who is thoughtful and considerate.
The filibuster is not in the Constitution or part of the American founding. It is a creature born of an accidental omission from the rules.
It looks like Senate Democrats will block the nomination of Neil Gorsuch. It also means the end of the filibuster. Which is a shame.
