Your countdown was two digits too long.
That's for sure. We'll be hearing about how Trump needs to put a liberal in to "rebalance" the court. Man, I really wish it had been Ginsberg or a couple of the other liberal justices. I know that Ginsberg wants to retire - she just doesn't want to do it under Trump (so much for no politics on the SCOTUS). I wonder what her thoughts will be when he wins a second term...

Fantastic news. If his next choice is as good as his first we're moving well in the right direction! As for the libtards squealing - why should today be different?

Yeah, this is BIG.
Justice Kennedy was a moderate. I don't recall anything about his record on gun control, other than him being in the majority on both the HELLER and McDONALD decisions for handgun ownership and handgun carry rights. But he often sides with the liberals, and we need more conservative justices who respect the system of government that we were given in the form of the U.S. constitution and the body of law that was developed and respected for generations, STARTING WITH the generation of the Patriots who founded this nation, and their sons and grandsons who made up the first 50 years' worth of political leaders and high level judges.

Replacing a moderate with a conservative is good.

I'd even like to see that moderate replaced with a uniformly small-government libertarian, and I'd accept the risks inherent in giving people (especially modern American people, selfish, faithless, and whose morals are based on pop culture) too much freedom in order to cut back the power of government several notches, back to a level envisioned by the Framers.

Maybe Ginsberg and Breyer could leave together. :righton:

This isn't BIG. It's HUGE. As long as Trump chooses wisely.

An interesting view from the other side (CNN).

John Roberts played the long game. He just won.
By Joan Biskupic, CNN legal analyst & Supreme Court biographer
Updated 11:13 AM ET, Fri June 29, 201

Washington (CNN)For much of Chief Justice John Roberts' 13 years in the center chair on the Supreme Court, the direction of the law came down to the man who sat next to him, Anthony Kennedy, whose key vote and centrist-conservative reasoning steered cases from abortion to gay rights to the death penalty.

The plan to overturn Roe v. Wade at the Supreme Court is already in motion
When Roberts did make a singular decision, siding with four liberals to uphold Obamacare in 2012, conservatives on and off the bench were outraged.

But the chief justice might have been playing a long game, as much concerned about the institutional future of the court and his reputation than the fate of one law. Now, the 63-year-old Roberts is poised to be both figuratively and literally in charge.

. . .

go read the rest, really interesting

I agree with you about Kavanaugh, but it will be a meaner and nastier fight with him than it is already going to be with whoever gets nominated.

It's irrelevant whoever Trump eventually nominates. The Senate Dems don't have the power to stop it unless a bunch of RINO turncoats pop out of the woodwork.

Democrats promised to throw every obstacle in the way of President Donald Trump's pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, but Senate procedures and election-year politics don't give them much of a chance.

My bet is he noms one of the ladies on his list.
He added one to the list recently.

The lady senators' votes, Alaska and Maine, need to be shored up.

McCain could retire (with the AZ gov appointing a replacement) and help the vote as well.
