"And in this case, it means that the GOP has a monopoly on federal power".

Throughout his career, Judge Gorsuch has consistently stood on the side of religious freedom and the right to life of the unborn.

Litigation surrounding the possible repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act may give Gorsuch his earliest chance to affect change since there "is a potential for many major cases" to be filed regarding the healthcare overhaul, Gerson added. With Gorsuch, the court now returns to a body of nine, with the majority of justices appointed by Republican presidents.

Gorsuch could also be called on to decide six cases argued a year ago should the other eight justices not be able to come to a majority conclusion.

That's not to say Trump didn't play his own significant part in filling the empty court seat.

Unfortunately, obstructionism is a pattern of behavior from the left. The Democrats have been able to push the new administration into an abrupt reversal of policy on Syria, with the launching of missile strikes on the armed forces of President Bashar al-Assad.

But as an acolyte of Scalia whose rulings have skewed conservative on most issues, Gorsuch picked up almost unanimous opposition from Democrats and their liberal allies, who were willing to give up filibuster rights now rather than waiting for a potential second Trump nomination. That could mean one or more justices are writing dissents from the court's decision against hearing the case, or that the justices are waiting for Gorsuch's views on the matter. For purely partisan purposes, they tried to stop the guy who in 2006 had zero opposition from the Senate and the support of senators like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

With the ceremonies done, Gorsuch returned to claim his new Supreme Court chambers and resume his preparations for the private conference Thursday as well as his first public oral arguments next Monday.

"Well he was made by the Democrats unfortunately to be a lot more controversial than he should have been and we simply told the Democrats that Justice Gorsuch would be confirmed".

They stole a Supreme Court seat by refusing even to consider President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland, while recording a record number of filibusters against the former president's judicial nominees. But the liberals tried this anyway, using a filibuster to prevent a vote.

Senate Republicans invoked the "nuclear option" — allowing all future Supreme Court nominees to pass with a 51-vote simple majority instead of the previous 60-vote threshold. He called their move "unprecedented" and said that they "destroyed" the Supreme Court nomination process. With the election of President Trump, Americans proclaimed their desire for a smaller government and less intrusion.
