15 questions for potential new SCOTUS justices
Daniel Horowitz · June 28, 2018

Editor’s note: These questions were originally written when Neil Gorsuch was nominated to the Supreme Court. They are just as vital today with a new opening on the court.

If conservatives really want an originalist on some of the most consequential issues of our time, it is important to ask nominees to the court questions about the role of the courts in constitutional interpretation compared to other branches of the government. If we could sit down for an hour hour of time with any high court nominee, here are the 15 questions and issues we would discuss.  Read more at Conservative Review  https://www.conservativereview.com/news/15-questions-for-potential-...

Potential nominee profile: Don Willett

By Edith Roberts on Jun 29, 2018 at 2:53 pm

Of all the names on President Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees, Don Willett’s may be the best known outside rarefied legal circles. That’s because while he was running for his second term on the Texas Supreme Court in 2012, Willett embraced Twitter as a way to get his campaign message across, and Twitter embraced him back. Although Willett dialed down on his tweeting after he was nominated for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, he has 109,000 Twitter followers and has sent almost 26,000 tweets – full of memes and puns and celebrating everything from Texas-shaped cornbread to the Constitution – including one or two that took mild jabs at Trump. The Texas legislature even named Willett the state’s “Tweeter Laureate.” He has called himself, in his trademark down-home style, “probably the tweetingest judge in America, which, admittedly, is like being the tallest Munchkin in Oz.” His regular-guy work habits include writing at what he calls “my satellite office: my neighborhood Chick-fil-A,” where last November he helped perform the Heimlich maneuver on a fellow patron who was choking on a gluten-free bun. Willett’s folksy manner overlays a fierce commitment to an approach to judging that is controversial even among conservatives.

Potential nominee profile: Raymond Kethledge

By Amy Howe on Jul 7, 2018 at 3:29 pm

Like Thomas Hardiman, another potential nominee on the president’s shortlist, Judge Raymond Kethledge would bring educational diversity to a bench on which all of the current justices attended Ivy League law schools: He received both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Michigan. He has returned to the law school as a lecturer to teach classes on legal writing and advocacy. (While he is there, he could bump into another potential nominee on Trump’s shortlist, Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen, who has also taught there.) During a decade on the bench, Kethledge has compiled an extensive body of opinions but has not weighed in on several high-profile and potentially divisive issues, including abortion and affirmative action. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt has nonetheless dubbed Kethledge “Gorsuch 2.0,” “in the mold of Antonin Scalia.” Continue reading »

Potential nominee profile: Brett Kavanaugh

When then-candidate Donald Trump released his first two lists of potential Supreme Court nominees in May and September of 2016, the omission of Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit drew comment. Kavanaugh had served for 10 years on a bench known as a springboard to the Supreme Court. With his impeccable academic credentials and sterling reputation in conservative political and legal circles, he seemed like an obvious choice. And his name was eventually added to the roster of possible nominees, on November 17, 2017.

No one else on the president’s current list can rival Kavanaugh for Washington credentials. He was even born in Washington, where his mother was a public-school teacher, on February 12, 1965. Martha Kavanaugh went on to become a prosecutor and later state judge in Maryland, where Kavanaugh was raised and where, like Justice Neil Gorsuch, he attended Georgetown Preparatory School. After graduating from Yale College in 1987 and Yale Law School in 1990, Kavanaugh spent two years as a law clerk, for Judge Walter Stapleton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit and Judge Alex Kozinski of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. He followed a one-year fellowship in the office of U.S. Solicitor General Kenneth Starr with a clerkship for Justice Anthony Kennedy during October Term 1993. Kavanaugh went on to join Starr at the Office of the Independent Counsel, where Kavanaugh led the investigation into the death of Vince Foster, an aide to President Bill Clinton, and helped write the 1998 Starr Report to Congress, which outlined 11 grounds for Clinton’s impeachment. Kavanaugh was later a partner at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, where he specialized in appellate law. He moved to the White House after President George W. Bush was elected and worked in the West Wing for five years, first as a counsel to the president and then as staff secretary to the president.

Potential nominee profile: Amy Coney Barrett

By Amy Howe on Jul 4, 2018 at 2:40 pm

In November 2017, President Donald Trump released a revised list of potential Supreme Court nominees. The November 2017 list was an expanded version of two earlier lists, announced during the 2016 presidential campaign, from which then-candidate Trump pledged, if elected, to pick a successor to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died on February 13, 2016. First on the new list – because it was in alphabetical order – was Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor (and former Scalia clerk) who had recently been confirmed to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit. Barrett’s confirmation hearings had received considerable attention after Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee – most notably, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California – grilled her on the role of her Catholic faith in judging. Feinstein’s criticism did not stop Barrett from being confirmed, and since then there has been speculation that it may have in fact strengthened her case to fill the seat that will be vacated by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

SCOTUS Shortlister Amy Coney Barrett on Overturning Precedent and Judicial Deference to Lawmakers
Reviewing the record of a possible replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Damon Root|Jul. 3, 2018 1:00 pm

https://reason.com/blog/2018/07/03/scotus-short-lister-amy-coney-ba...

So it's "Coach K". And the far left's preassembled and premanufactured protest industry was there and ready for their latest series of b*tchfits on cue.

I like how Judge Kavanaugh emphasized on how he'd "interpret" the law and not "write" it.  The problem I do have w/ that is his hands were also on Justice Roberts last minute dissent on Obamacare.  He also mentioned "precedence" as well. Which ole lady Ginsberg is "big" on where Rowe v Wade is concerned.

Imo, Rowe v Wade is not the issue at all.  Continuing the funding of OBAMACARE and PLANNED PARENTHOOD is the taxpayers' problem. 

The way see it, if the SCOTUS has determined that public sector CANNOT obligate non union members to pay dues - WHY should the taxpayers also be obligated to continue funding the ACA and PP?!

That aside, I do believe Amy Coney Barrett is next at bat. And that, folks, will be one of the most vicious shows on Earth. 

I believe it was reported that McConnell said that her nomination would be explosive. SO!  If "we" up the senate seats come the midterms, WHO CARES abiout the dem/media?! As if the Obama-Ds have a rat's @ss about the economy or the country as a whole when they UNANIMOUSLY passed Obamacare; or weaponized the IRS and the DoJ; or made huge federal land grabs...?!  I can go on!

I have a good feeling about Amy!  I think she's made of the same "stuff" that Nikki Haley's made of!  :)

yeah, the hypocrisy/projecting of the left is shameless - x2. from their side of the coin they feel no shame or even a reason to consider it, from the other side of the coin there is no shame thrown, or reason to consider throwing some.

looks like today's widespread attack on the nominee is his supposed staunch second amendment record. which gets me wondering, if you're into staunchly protecting any one of the 1st 10 (bill of rights) how can you not be equally staunch on the whole bunch?? They were/are all/each derived from the same context - limiting fed/gov and keeping it's authority away from essential natural rights like privacy and individual autonomy.

I'm not talking facts here but I had read an article or viewed a video recently while weed hopping, and read a Justice (?) say they don't like to over turn Supreme court decisions. What I got out of it is, they don't want to make the Supreme court Justice decisions look bad by nullifying or overturning previous final court decisions. Makes the Supreme Court look bad, judicial activism (Extra-Constitutional).

;' /  embracing that weedhopper nickname

I've suspected for a while what you say is true for repealing laws as well. Can't admit a mistake by fully undoing it. Better to dilute it in hopes of reducing it's ongoing effect and pretend to be saving face. Better to assume the citizenry is too stupid to see it's a foolish mistake or care. Politics = image over substance, it's one of many reasons why politics shouldn't dominate a culture.

Better to dilute it in hopes of reducing it's ongoing effect and pretend to be saving face.

Better to dilute it or add to it (fix it, rewrite). Committees are famous for trying to fix laws, rules when they fail to do their oversight or Constitutional check.

Hard to believe the Republican Study Committee is suppose to "attach a Constitutional Authority Statement (CAS) to every proposed bill since Jan. 5, 2011."

One thing that bothers me and am surprised it has never been challenged ....the Supreme Court states on their web site we have a "living constitution". That in itself proves the Constitution has no limits or boundary and continues to be abused and usurped. 

One could say we have a political Living Uniparty Constitution passed on from one generation to the next. 

"DILUTE" it and HOPE it...what...doesn't kill us quickly?!  Wow! That's very DC worthy language.  Lets see:

>  It's just a little lump in your breast, that's all!

> There's lead or chemical waste in your water?  Dilute it!

As for that tax reform:  "Reform" is NOT synonymous w/ CUTS!  And it means DIDDLY SQUAT unless there are REAL and PERMANENT CUTS in our federal spending as well!  It's ALL a friggin ILLUSION!  But it is a feel-good movie, right? And that's all that matters, right?  Jeez!

Btw, enjoy the new kool aid. Don't worry . . .it's di-lu-ted!  

Oh, how we forget. If you have any unanswered questions about Judge Brett Kavanaugh look no farther than C-SPAN

This is interesting imo, might want to take the time to read the transcript or watch the video ....

Judicial Nomination Hearing

Mr. Kavanaugh testified at a hearing on his nomination as a judge on U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Among the issues he addressed were his qualifications and service as White House counsel, his rating by the American Bar Association, and various legal matters in which the administration had been involved during his tenure as counsel. Many members expressed frustration with his vague answers to specific questions.  https://www.c-span.org/video/?192420-1/brett-kavanaugh-testifies-dc...

Roe v. Wade

Full Schumer and Kavanaugh

00:53:20
Chuck Schumer

I fail to see the distinction. Let me askyou to answer, since my time is ending here, the two otherquestions. Do you consider Roe v. Wade to be an abomination?And do you consider yourself to be a judicial nominee, like thePresident said he was going to nominate people, in the mold ofScalia and Thomas?

00:53:40
Brett M. Kavanaugh

Senator, on the question of Roe v. Wade, ifconfirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wadefaithfully and fully. That would be binding precedent of theCourt. It's been decided by the Supreme Court--

00:53:52
Chuck Schumer

I asked you your own opinion.
00:53:52
Brett M. Kavanaugh

And I'm saying if I were confirmed to theD.C. Circuit, Senator, I would follow it. It's been reaffirmedmany times, including in Planned Parenthood v. Casey
00:54:00
Chuck Schumer

I understand. But what is your opinion?You're not on the bench yet. You've talked about these issuesin the past to other people, I'm sure.
00:54:07
Brett M. Kavanaugh

The Supreme Court has held repeatedly,Senator, and I don't think it would be appropriate for me togive a personal view of that case.
00:54:12
Chuck Schumer

OK, you are not going to answer thequestion. How about being in the mold of Scalia and Thomas?
00:54:17
Brett M. Kavanaugh

I don't want to talk about current membersof the Court, but I do think I can describe some of thejustices or judges in the past that I think I would try, thathave been role models to me, including Justice White, JusticeJackson, and for a couple of reasons. They were people who tookan active part in our Government system, which is some--
00:54:35
Chuck Schumer

I understand. Just explain to me why it isappropriate for the President to say that he will appointnominees in a particular mold, but you cannot answer whetheryou would be part of that.
00:54:46
Brett M. Kavanaugh

As a potential inferior court judge,Senator, on the D.C. Circuit if confirmed, I just don't want totalk about currently sitting members of the Supreme Court. I'mhappy to talk about Justice Jackson and Justice White, if you'dlike.
00:54:59
Chuck Schumer

OK. I wish I could say it, but I do notthink you have clarified any of these answers that we asked youthe first time.Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
