Gorsuch sworn in as Supreme Court justice


Justice Neil Gorsuch, vowing to be a “faithful servant” to the Constitution, was sworn in Monday to the Supreme Court, capping a grueling confirmation process and filling the seat once held by the late Antonin Scalia.

The latest addition to the court was sworn in at a public ceremony in the Rose Garden. Justice Anthony Kennedy – Gorsuch’s former boss – administered the Judicial Oath, the second of two Gorsuch took.

“To the American people, I am humbled by the trust placed in me today,” Gorsuch said after taking the oath. “I will never forget to whom much is given to much will be expected, and I promise you that I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great nation.”

At the ceremony, President Trump called Gorsuch a man of “unmatched qualification” and “deeply devoted” to the Constitution.

“I have no doubt you will rise to the occasion, and the decisions you make will protect our Constitution today and for many generations of Americans to come,” he said.

Earlier, Gorsuch took the Constitutional Oath in a private ceremony, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts in the Supreme Court’s Justice’s Conference Room. He was accompanied by his wife Louise, who held the Bible, and his two daughters.

Gorsuch, 49, takes the seat of the late Justice Scalia, who died in February last year, and whom Gorsuch has been compared favorably to by conservatives hopeful for another originalist on the court.


and then there were 9..again..

“Gorsuch, 49, takes the seat of the late Justice Scalia, who died in February last year”

  1. “Neil and his siblings, brother J.J. and sister Stephanie, were raised as Roman Catholics and attended weekly Mass. Neil Gorsuch later attended Georgetown Preparatory School, a Jesuit school in North Bethesda, Maryland, from which he graduated in 1985.[16][17][14][18]

    Gorsuch’s wife, Louise, is British-born and the two met while Neil was studying at Oxford. When the couple returned to the United States they started attending an Episcopal parish in Vienna, Virginia. Gorsuch currently attends St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder. If Gorsuch considers himself Protestant, his confirmation would make him the first Protestant to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court since the retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens.[106][5][107] Gorsuch has not publicly stated if he considers himself a Catholic who attends a Protestant church, or if he has fully converted to Protestantism, but “according to church records, the Gorsuches were members of Holy Comforter”, an Episcopal church.[108]”


    • Sounds like Pence, a self declared Evangelical Catholic.

      This is how the CIA, errr Washington Post describes an Evangelical Catholic.

      In the 1994 piece, Pence calls himself Catholic, and then by 1995, the Indianapolis Star was reporting that Pence was attending an evangelical megachurch.

      That was around the time that white evangelicals and conservative Catholics in the United States started to realize they had a lot more in common than their more denominationally tribal parents realized. Pollsters and sociologists note that in the 1990s and early 2000s, conservative white Catholics in particular and white evangelicals began making alliances over shared concerns, primarily traditional marriage, abortion and legal religious protections.

      Today, most prominent social conservative advocacy groups are a combination of these forces, whereas a generation or two ago such groups were far more homogeneous.

      It’s a common trend among evangelicals today to be interested in ancient practices of the Catholic and Orthodox churches such as confession or communion — seen by some as more classic and traditional.


      I think of them as the whores of Babylon, willing to sell their souls to whichever re-legion the globalists are using as a front for their crimes!

  2. There are around 800 U.S. federal court seats. This moment in U.S. history is unusual for there are around 200 open seats. Justice Kennedy will be retiring in the next year or two, which will bring the U.S. Supreme Court seat number back to 8. What the legal field looks like in order to fill so many seats is unknown and a huge task in scouting is ahead. In recent U.S. history, it is through the U.S. court system that law has been legislated, instead of through Congress. Also, the number of Executive Orders, which the U.S. court system does not have to follow (only legally has to follow Congressional legislation) has set the agenda in the courts in recent times to higher degree with each new president.

    If I knew the name of the task force, I would write it here, but I do not. What I do know is a team of about ten have been tasked to lead and find replacements for those ca. 200 open seats.

    • This is old news, but demonstrates the growing vacancy of law in the U.S.:

      “There are currently 59 vacancies on the federal district and appellate courts.  With over 850 authorized judicial seats, this represents a seven percent vacancy rate.  Alarmingly high vacancy rates have persisted for over four years; indeed, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service recently determined that we are in the longest period of historically high vacancy rates in 35 years.  In addition, over 35 percent of the existing vacancies (21) are in courts so overburdened that they have been designated “judicial emergencies” by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.  Millions of people live in jurisdictions with judicial emergencies.”

      “59 vacancies include “judicial emergencies” and the current number is up to 126…” with how many more judicial emergencies?
