Ky. Judge Not On Top 3 List For Supreme Court Position

President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally Wednesday

Trump's top contenders for the vacancy at this time are federal appeals judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, said a person familiar with Trump's thinking who was not authorized to speak publicly. As it stands, Trump apparently plans to make his selection in a primetime appearance in much the same way that he did with the Gorsuch announcement, proving yet again that for this President optics and production values matter more than substance.

Vice President Pence met privately with Kavanaugh on Wednesday at the vice president's residence and that session went well, underscoring the judge's strong prospects, according to two Republicans briefed on the meeting.

Already some very fine parsing of the potential nominees' records is taking place.

Pence met in person with Kethledge and Barrett while he was vacationing in IN earlier this week and met with Kavanaugh at the Naval Observatory on Wednesday, said a person familiar with the process who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. The son of a former USA solicitor general, Lee clerked for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, served as a federal prosecutor, and was general counsel to then-Utah Gov. John Huntsman (R.) from 2005 to 2006. So with his background, with his credentials - he's a former clerk to Justice Kennedy. He is based in MI.

Thirty years later, Tyler sought to have his right to purchase a gun, lost forever as a result having been in a mental hospital for 30 days in the 1980s, restored. "Judges are not supposed to re-write the law, re-invent the Constitution or substitute their own opinions for the will of the people expressed through their laws". Democrats did not want Republicans to put the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court.

"The key insight", Sutton concluded, "is that no government may permanently deny rights based on generalizations stemming from classifications about any individual who once was institutionalized".

"I remind my Republican friends that Justice Neil M. Gorsuch also served in the George W. Bush administration, yet I do not recall conservatives using that as an excuse to question his commitment to the rule of law or to conservative principles", Gonzales wrote.

"Over at Yale, university spokesman Tom Conroy echoed Jackson, noting the school's admissions practices are in" compliance with the Supreme Court's interpretation of the law".

The American Family Association spoke for many conservatives when they sent a letter to President trump saying, "we prayerfully, strongly, and humbly implore you to select the nominee with a demonstrably constitutional judicial philosophy and a verifiably strong will against political pressure..." The White House has been preparing information materials on all four, who were part of a longer list of 25 names vetted by conservative groups.

In working out the timeframe, it's worth noting that the Senate will be dealing with an end of September deadline if they're going to get a nominee on the Court before Congress is scheduled to recess for the campaign and before the new Supreme Court term begins on Monday, October 1st. He also was a colleague of Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who stopped hearing cases a year ago. As a former clerk who worked at the Supreme Court for Justice Scalia and as a Notre Dame law professor, Barrett has the necessary training, knowledge, and philosophy to serve on the Supreme Court. A vote against one of Trump's Supreme Court nominees could add a lot more fuel to the fire. Barrett has excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions. But her main rejoinder to Hawley is that he has signed on to a lawsuit from 20 conservative states that takes aim at the Affordable Care Act's protections for people with pre-existing conditions - one of the most popular portions of the law. The opposition was handled brilliantly by Senate leadership who used the attacks to expose her opponents as intolerant, tone-deaf, religious bigots. If she's chosen and confirmed, it would be the first time four women would serve together on the nine-member Supreme Court.

"Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!" Liberals had a miserable time using their exhausted playbook of attacks against Barrett's last confirmation because she has a compelling and compassionate life story. If Sen. John McCain, who is battling brain cancer, is unable to vote, Democrats would only need one Republican senator. Several were adopted from Haiti. Because she was just confirmed, we know that constitutionalists and conservatives backed her; we know the Senate leadership fought for her confirmation with press conferences, floor speeches, and the final vote.
