Presidents Appoint Supreme Court Judges

Posted Leave a commentPosted in 2020 Election, federal government, Trump

The President, not the Senate, appoint U.S. Supreme Court Judges. The Senate votes on the nomination. Whether to confirm or deny.

Watching California Governor Gavin Newsom, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, take matters into their own State’s hands to tackle the Coronavirus pandemic — not wait for the gridlocked partisan federal government – White House, Congress, Bureaucratic Agencies or Supreme Court, is a refreshing reminder of the State Rights given US by the Founding Fathers in the […]

The bilateral confrontation is about more than just trade issues. It is about economic and military global domination. A struggle between […]
