Kellyanne Conway: We’re Sticking With Our List Of 21 SCOTUS Candidates (Which Doesn’t Include Ted Cruz)

Politico reports:

trumpscotuslistPresident-elect Donald Trump is “committed” to only nominating a Supreme Court justice from his previously disclosed list of potential additions to the high court, his campaign manager said Wednesday. As the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Trump released a list of 11 potential nominees in May. He expanded his potential selection pool in September with 10 additional names.

“You’ve seen the list of 21. The list has not changed,” Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told reporters Wednesday. “President-elect Trump has committed to choosing his Supreme Court justices, particularly the vacancy created by the untimely death of Justice Scalia. He’s committed to choosing from that list of 21.”

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, however, warned Wednesday that the upper chamber’s Judiciary Committee “will pay very close attention to proposed nominees.” Feinstein will serve as the panel’s ranking member in the next Congress.

“After the unprecedented and disrespectful treatment of Merrick Garland—a moderate judge who should have been quickly confirmed—the committee will pay very close attention to proposed nominees to ensure the fundamental constitutional rights of Americans are protected,” she said in a statement. “When President-elect Trump is willing to support responsible policies and nominees, I’ll hear him out, but this committee has a vital role to protect the Constitution and scrutinize policies, senior officials and judges very carefully, and that’s what we intend to do.”

  • crewman

    How the f*ck did the Democrats allow an entire year to go by of Obama’s administration without the Senate voting on Garland? That should have been loudly protested every single day. In the age of Trump’s million diversions, the Democrats need to discover how to focus on an issue and express unending righteous anger.

      • tristram

        No, because “that’s not the way this this all works” – the majority party appoints the committee chairs, and the chairs set the committee agendas and schedule hearings. The Democrats had no power to call a committee hearing or bring a nomination to the floor. Sometimes the facts are not pleasant, but they’re still the facts – unless you’re Trump and you have your own.

        • Kenster999

          None of which excuses what the Republics did to Garland, right?

    • Chris Baker

      Theoretically, they could have heard hearings on him, and then just refused to nominate him. But they made the stupid mistake of saying “we are not even going to meet with this guy.” Hopefully Democrats can use the same tactic if they ever get ahold of the Senate again. This just sets a precedence.

      A lot of people don’t even realize the significance of SCOTUS.

      • Steverino

        Basically the Republicans just want a one-party government, and the Democrats, and frustratingly the president have (so far) been complacent in this.

        • GayOldLady

          They’re not really complacent, there’s nothing they can do because they don’t have the power to call hearings on a SCOTUS appointment if they’re not in control of the Senate.

          • teeveedub

            All the more reason to make midterm elections the number one priority for Democrats individually and collectively and for the DNC as the organization that’s supposed to represent us.

          • PickyPecker

            Which is why we need a strong person at the helm of the DNC. AND one who takes the job seriously and full-time! I’d like to see Dean back in the seat with a 50-states strategy again.

          • GayOldLady

            I agree. Democrats sit home during the mid-terms then bitch about what the Democrats don’t get done when they’re in the minority. Too many people, even people who comment here, have no idea how our legislative branch of government works. President Obama and former AG Holder have committed to begin working on the Red State issue and Mid-term elections as soon as Obama leaves office.

          • Steverino

            I’m still hoping the president will just go ahead and appoint him anyway as a parting shot in his last days of office, alongside the presidential pardons and all that.

          • GayOldLady

            He can’t….The constitution requires the consent of the Senate.

          • Steverino

            And if the Senate refuses to do their constitutional duty to advise and consent, or withholds it…?

            Well, if that interpretation is correct, then the president really has no power at all to appoint (as the Constitution states), only nominate, which means the power actually belongs to the Senate, and if taken to its logical conclusion, means the Senate could let the third branch of the federal government, the Supreme Court, simply die off and cease to exist. Sounds like the makings of a constitutional crisis, to me.

          • GayOldLady

            They absolutely could and that’s what a lot of the discussion around holding up this appointment has been about. This has never happened before, but theoretically the Senate could refuse to exercise their duty to advise and consent. We could literally end up without a SCOTUS. I don’t think that will happen because I believe before that happens there will be a successful challenge probably brought by the ACLU challenging the actions of a renegade Senate. There is currently a lawsuit but it probably won’t be heard by SCOTUS because it’s weak from what I’ve read. But the ACLU vowed today to take on Donald Trump and the GOP legislature if they behave in an unconstitutional way and to take their grievances before SCOTUS. So SCOTUS here we come. A Constitutional Crisis isn’t outside of the realm of possibility.

        • TampaDink

          Complicit more than complacent.

          • Steverino

            Damned auto-correct. Sometimes it slips by my proofreading.

          • TampaDink

          • Kenster999

            11/8 proved that

          • TampaDink

            Abso-fucking-lutely.

      • GayOldLady

        Well the Democrats didn’t refuse to have hearings, the Republican Chair refused to have hearings and that was that. Without hearings and an upvote from the Judiciary committee the nominee never gets and up/down vote before the Senate.

      • Ninja0980

        Our side certainly didn’t and other then a couple of soundbites, never made it an issue like Republicans did.
        Make no mistake, many whom pulled the lever for Trump did it on SCOTUS and SCOTUS alone.

          • EweTaw

            Something I’ve let slide is seeing then used when than is the correct word. I’ve always assumed it to be an auto mistake, like when I unconsciously type the wrong homophone of their/they’re/there or to when I mean too. But I’ve seen it so much lately I think you’re on to something Ed. Many of the folks who use then instead of than seem to do it all of the time. They also have trouble discerning the difference between lose and loose, among other things. This is cause for concern. In 1970 you would almost never see these kinds of mistakes in impromptu writing except with intermediate school students.

          • And I need to apologize to Ninja, lest he thinks that I’m just harping on him and missing the value in his posts. It’s not that at all. My mother was an English teacher while I was growing up. She beat my head up with this type of stuff. I also realize that I don’t use capitalization most of the time. That’s just me not using it, rather than (ha!) not knowing when to use it.

          • Kenster999

            Yes! I see “lose” and “loose” used wrongly very alot!

          • EweTaw

            😀

          • Sam

            Thank-you for this. I just wish we had a similar guide to combat the increasing trend of replacing “than” with “that” as a conjunction for making comparisons. Every time I see it misused, it’s like walking head first into a glass door.

          • DaveW

            We could go on and on. Make clear. Make what fucking clear????? (It)

            My personal annoyance is “do so”. Technically not misused but definitely overused.

            “He gave it to she and I” usually said by People who (not whom!) might say “her and I” or “me and my friend” and have been corrected so often they think it’s always I and always second.

            They don’t try to understand, just replace with something they think is “smarter”. I guess whom sounds like whilst. They say it on those pbs shows, must be sophisticated.

            Education fail, like so many things with contemporary government

        • DaveW o

    • FAEN

      Unending righteous anger-I’m with you on that.

    • Steverino

      I often thought we needed somebody like the late Walter Cronkite, announcing at the end of the news broadcast, each and every night, how “this is the (whatever number) day that President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, has not yet had a hearing before the Senate” much in the same manner as he did each day the Iranian hostages were in captivity in 1980.

      • Sam

        Keith Olbermann did these for Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Deep-water Horizon oil spill, among other things before he got booted off MSNBC and went back to sports reporting.

    • GayOldLady

      Because the Democrats did not the Chair the Judiciary Committee and only the Chair can call for a hearing on a SCOTUS Justice. After that the committee votes and if the Candidate is accepted it goes before the full Senate for approval.

      • Xiao Ai

        Wall Street needs to be completely shut down. It’s the only thing they understand.

        • GayOldLady

          Wall Street needs to be constrained, held accountable and people need to go to prison for the crimes they committed, but unless you support the violent overthrow of our government and the rule of law, there’s no way to shut down Wall Street. I’m not down with anarchy.

          • Xiao Ai

            Dear GayOldLady, did I say anything about anarchy?

            If you’re not willing to believe that things can change why hold on any longer? Why vote for Obama? Hell for that matter why vote for Hillary?

            Things just need rattled up a bit.

            And when the law doesn’t work on behalf of all the people, then there is no rule of law. It’s nothing more than an illusion to keep you feeling safe when you’re not.

            if you can’t create the mess and then clean it up, please step aside. There’s no room for apathy.

          • Xiao Ai

            Oh, and lest you not see it, the Government already was overthrown.

          • GayOldLady

            You have very little knowledge about how our Government works if you think Donald Trump has overthrown our Government. He will have a 4 year term then he will be up for reelection, if he makes it that long. The GOP has control of both houses, but the Democratic Party has enough members in the Senate to mount successful Cloture/Filibusters. The SCOTUS is still 4/4 and the Majority that voted for Marriage Equality is still in place. The SCOTUS in June just upheld a decision from a lower Federal Court against the State of TX that challenged ROE. The lower Federal Courts are not filled with Trump appointees and their integrity is still intact. Even though Donald Trump is Commander-in-Chief of the Army, the Army of the United States is sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC. It’s not a secret that the upper echelon of the Officer Corp DID NOT support Donald Trump. The majority of employees in our government are career employees and they are trained to do their jobs, not usurp our Government or destroy the U.S. from within. The election of Donald Trump will not change that.

            Since your comment history is only a few comments I’m assuming you and a few others came here today to stir fear among Democrats and to divide us. You have no chance of being successful. And FYI……You’re blocked.

    • NancyP

      One of the problems is that Merrick may have said, if the Senate isn’t going to do its job and give me a yea or nay, I am out of here.

    • KnownDonorDad

      I would like to see President Obama sue McConnell et al. to provide a hearing for Judge Garland. It doesn’t mean they have to accept him (reasonable adults compromise), but it should establish that the Senate can’t just abandon their job. A Marbury v. Madison for modern times.

    “Cottonelle’ Stutzman – beleaguered flower martyr – had her day before the Washington State Supreme Court yesterday. Attorney General Bob Ferguson argued, on behalf of Washington State, that the state’s interest in eradicating discrimination overrides any First Amendment protections Stutzman might otherwise have.

    The state argued that individuals have an absolute right to believe whatever they want to believe, but the state has an absolute right to regulate their religious conduct through non-discrimination laws.

    A decision in this case is not expected until March, at the earliest. Regardless of the outcome, it is expected that the losing side will appeal this decision to the United States Supreme Court.

    Stutzman received $94,000 martyr dollar$ in a GoFundMe account before it was shut down.

    • Can they appeal? I don’t think so… This is a state issue, as such, WSSC is the end of the road.

      • TampaDink

        He would never suggest Tiffany. He barely even considers her to be related. I’m not sure if there is a minimum age limit but even if there is, rules do not apply to the next administration.

    I was curious about “Amul Thapar” and he’s Indian American and in his 40s. That would actually be a wise choice. And you never know until they actually get there for life how they really are in their heart (Souter)

      Anyone who is a member of the Federalist Society is more likely then not to be an enemy, simple as that.

          See above.

        Case in point, Piyush (“Bobby”) Jindal.

  • KnownDonorDad

    The Supreme Court vacancy appointment is effectively being stolen from President Obama by an obstructionist GOP Senate. I still can’t quite believe this is happening.

    • Steverino

      The GOP never accepted the result of the 2012 presidential election, obviously.

      • KnownDonorDad

        If only President Obama’s tutoring of Trump includes a basic description of the duties of the branches of government.

  • Steverino

    If only #21 was the late actor Robert Young on that list, of the “Father Knows Best” fame.

  • Ninja0980

    Bottom line, Scalia fucked all of us over one more time by dying when he did.
    More then anything else, Republicans pulled the level for Trump and came out to vote Republican down ballot because of this vacant SCOTUS seat.
    If this had happened in 2014, Obama would have filled that seat and we’d have a liberal court, not the hellhole Conservative one we’re about to have.

    • Than.

        than, then, thin, thon, thun, and sometimes thyn.

  • Ninja0980

    IMO, Trump will use this list as blackmail against Republicans.
    Either he gets what he wants or that list goes up in flames… if it hasn’t already.

  • AJD

    I see that accidental gay porn star William Pryor (#14) remains on the list.

  • Max_1

    Now that the GOP elected Trump as President… They cry, “UNITY.”
    Where was this unity when they all agreed, “Obama must fail”?

    • Tor

      They were certainly unified in that. But that’s not what you mean….

  • thom

    oh please, nothing this campaign says is truthful. he will pick who he wants. no matter what list they release

    • Tor

      It all depends on what he had for breakfast, and if he had a solid movement that day..

  • shivadog

    If possible, the Dems should block any SCOTUS picks by Trump. It would be complete bullshit to let Trump pick a justice that should have been appointed by Obama. Most of the damage Trump is likely to do should be repairable, except if he starts a nuclear war, or screws up the Supreme Court.

    • coram nobis

      The Democrats should have learned by now, after Obama’s 8 years, that there’s no sense in reaching across the aisle — all they’ll do is lose their hand at the wrist.

      • Tor

        Deleted. Responded to wrong post.

  • JT

    Hold off on any such selection until Drumpf is out.

  • Gil

    What’s “untimely ” about someone dying at 80 ? That’s beyond the average life expectancy…

    • TampaDink

      It was largely presumed that Tony Scalia was immortal….because of all of the blood of innocent young Americans he poured onto his cornflakes for his entire life.

      • Tor

        Another myth busted.

        • TampaDink

          I break everything.

  • The Return of Traxley

    I see the makeup artists decided to prank her again by giving her “smoky eyes” that look like a trash fire.

      Skin tone?

    • Snarkaholic

      Dead eyes?

  • EweTaw

    I’m sure all of the picks on the list are scarier than the inquisition at a blood sausage fest, but Mike Lee? OMFG! He’ll happily rule in favor of selling of all BLM public lands and the National Parks to private interests. Those bears living in Yellowstone are freeloaders. They need to be given jobs and forced to work for their picnic baskets. No more gubbernunt hand outs!

    • Tor

      Remember Yogi and Booboo? They worked their butts off!

  • bob

    Everything is pretty much “who’s on first” at this time. Now , some are saying cruz may be att gen. The good thing would be an open senate seat, but who knows what you’d get from texas.

    • Tor

      A hyper-liberal Democrat? Please, Please.

      • bob

        Is there such a creature in texas? lol

        • Tor

          I’m remembering Molly Ivins and Ann Richards. Lost creatures , indeed.

    Use the WORD OF THE DAY in a sentence:

    “After the November 8, 2016 Presidential election, the United States became a kakistocracy.”

    Ann Coulter’s older sister says what? Talk about a nasty woman . . .

  • coram nobis

    Regarding what a future Court might try to do in reversing, say, Obergefell on marriage, or the underlying case law, the wiki page on the Romer v. Evans Colorado case turned up an interesting footnote: non-retrogression (or, sometimes, “ratcheting”). Apparently the walkback on some established rights might not be doable.

    It’s a complicated discussion of a fairly basic principle.

    All the names on that list might as well be Roy Moore or Ted Cruz or the entire westboro baptist church for all the difference it wouldn’t make.
