Trump Narrows SCOTUS List to Three

I hate, hate, hate, that before the AP tells us anything about these three candidates they feel the need to tell us that they are white men – as if that is supposed to be a negative thing. I’m much more concerned about the content of their character than the color of their skin or the genitalia under their skivvies.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has narrowed his choice to fill the Supreme Court vacancy to three judges and said he expects to make his decision in the coming days.

A person familiar with the selection process said the three judges, all white men who sit on federal appeals courts, were on the list of 21 potential high court picks Trump announced during the presidential campaign.

The leading contenders — who all have met with Trump — are William Pryor, Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman, the person said, speaking anonymously because he was not authorized to speak publicly about internal decisions.

    Typical  liberalism…have to judge by skin color first.    These liberal racists make me ill as well.

    I like Clarence Thomas because of his conservative idea, not because of his skin color.   Liberals savage him because of his skin color.


  2. Le Roi du Nord

    “Liberals savage him because of his skin color”.     Really? Any real proof of that, or is this some statement of  alternative fact?   You sure it isn’t about his judicial track record?

  3. Le Roi du Nord

    Pretty questionable sources even for you.  Or are alternative facts your new reality??

  4. Kevin Scheunemann

    At least as credible as CNN & PMSNBC, the main liberal news sources.

    Pretty judgmental for someone that lectures about that.

  5. Le Roi du Nord

    Well, you have called me a liberal numerous times, yet I have never ever even thought about savaging Thomas because of his skin color.  So by definition your statement must be false.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you are willing to denounce all the racist liberals I linked to and compliment Clarence Thomas for being an excellent justice?

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, I’m willing to say you over-state and exaggerate just about any issue so you can twist things into a weak-kneed defense of your own position.  And nobody knows if he is an “excellent justice”  as he never speaks.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Very judgemental on your part.

    I didn’t get the memo you were keeper of all things when it comes to choice in language use.    Duly noted.


  9. Le Roi du Nord

    Not judgemental at all, but rather based on reading far too many of your gratuitous slams on who and what ever you consider to be liberal on any given day.  And thanks for the compliment; you know the old saying, “imitation is the most sincere form of flattery”.

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you denounce my discernment between good and bad, but then conduct the kind of hyper judgementalism you denounce?

    Fascinating, in a self torture sort of way. Should just be easier to admit you decide between good and bad. (As we all do). I know it is impossible for liberals to make those distinctions because they have a twisted sense of good and bad much of the time in the name of “tolerance”, which is basic code for embracing bad/evil.

    You punted on Clarence Thomas question. The fact you are unwilling to openly denounce the liberal racists speaks volumes about you.

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    You didn’t pose a question, but rather tried to get me to buy in with your world-view.  Ain’t gonna happen, kev.

    Always makes me chuckle how Kevin is only upset with “liberal” crooks, “liberal” racists, “liberal” welfare cheats, etc etc etc…while giving a free pass to the racists, crooks, and cheaters who are politically aligned with himself.


    Divide & conquer – working as intended.

  13. Kevin Scheunemann


    Didn’t think you had the courage to denounce the savage liberal racism against Clarence Thomas.

    Disappointing.  Clarence Thomas is a smart, and outstanding USSC justice.   We should be all swiftly denouncing the racism against him….




  14. Le Roi du Nord

    What on earth would you know about courage??  You are always hiding behind religion and/or from “liberals” who only you can discern.

    Here is your example;  “savage liberal racism”.   Now explain how good it was to see the sexist and ethnic comments regarding the women on the SC.  Go ahead and deny those “conservatives” critics.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    That is hilarious coming from someone that hides behind a screen name.    I don’t hide behind religion, it is part of who I am.    You want me to hide my Chrisitianity because you do not like those that adhere to absolute universal truth.

    What conservative quotes in SC are you refering to?

    If it is keeping men, with man parts, out of women’s showers, I’m all for that.    We should not foster access to perversion.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    Check out comments made when minority, gay or Jewish women were named to the SC.  Or doesn’t your selective memory allow that because it wouldn’t fit with your world view??

    My screen name is my business, and mine alone, and really none of yours.  And I always thought it had a catchy ring to it.  You should look up what it means..

    Now I’ll let you have the last word.

    Pen:  Looks like Kevin proved your point.  No surprise there.




  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    Surely you can come up with one specific example????

    That’s right, you always fall short when asked for specifics.

  18. Le Roi du Nord

    “liberal racists”, “leftist racism”, “racist liberals”, “liberal racists”, “savage liberal racism”.

    There are 6 examples from this thread alone.  Looks pretty specific to me.  Your use of alternative facts is astounding.

    Pen:  Only glad to help.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann


    Posted 2 links to specifics above when you asked.

    You posted no specifics…went off on some politicians in SC something… something….

    I asked for specific quote, so we could evaluate your wild allegations.


  20. penquin

    Kevin – what are you needing examples of? Nord already showed where you specifically say “liberal racism”….something you do quite often (are you unaware that you constantly do so? Is that the confusion?). Or are you asking me for a link where you did not call out conservative racism? Kinda hard to prove a negative…and the only thing I recall you saying about that is that no conservative could ever be racist. If you have examples of you condemning a right-winger for racist behavior then please provide those links. I would sincerely be happy to discover that you’re not as blindly partisan as you are currently coming across as.

    Also, this nonsense about “fake names” is a silly & desperate ploy to deflect away from genuine conversation. Do you also ignore the wisdom of Poor Richard? Refuse to read anything by Mark Twain? Turn off the the radio whenever Vicki McKenna is on? Just ’cause those people were/are “hiding” behind a “fake” name doesn’t mean their words are any less worthy…

    Let’s review.

    1.) I posted a comment about typical liberalism, judging by skin color in response to Owen’s excellent post.

    2.) Nord, then asked for further examples of “liberal racism”.  I gave him 2 specific examples, which he could not rebut, refused to denounce, and refused to agree that Clarence Thomas is an excellent justice.

    3.) Nord then called me out about conservative racism.

    4.) I asked for a specific example.

    5.) Nord them mumbled something about SC.    Did not provide a specific example.

    6.) I then asked him to provide a SC specific example where he asserts “conservative racism” and he has not done that.

    I cannot comment on mindless meanderings.   If he wants to talke about a specific example of alleged “conservative racism”, all for that, if he can articulate anything in that context.

    It’s very easy to articulate liberal racism, it is everywhere.   Liberals want to sort people into constant groups by skin color, gender, and sexual orientation.   I just want to evaluate someone on their character.

    You problem lies with Nord, he is tackling a nearly impossible to detect problem.
