Prominent Conservative Senator calls on Trump to revamp SCOTUS nomination plan

Rising Conservative star Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) called upon President Trump to modify his Supreme Court nomination proposal to include more conservative judges on Saturday. 

The Supreme Court of the US has dealt a series of staggering blows to both Trump and Republicans the last several weeks, the most recent being a Monday morning ruling that strikes down a critical Louisiana abortion safety law.

The split decision was once again decided by Chief Justice John Roberts, once thought to be a centrist Republican. Roberts has been showing alarming signs of leaning much further left than ever before.

After a string of controversial Roberts decisions recently, Trump announced his intention to release a new list of potential SCOTUS nominees ahead of the November election.

Hawley cautioned Trump to reconsider the proposal to release a new list, however, telling Politico that “I don’t love the idea of just doing over what we have been doing in the past. The idea of issuing a new list, if it’s just going to be the same stuff and the same process, I mean I’m not wild about it. … When it comes to this whole process, we have to ask ourselves, is this vetting process, is this really working?”

One of Trump’s greatest achievements during his first term is that he’s been able to nominate two justices to the high court. However, both Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — though not as squishy as Roberts — have issued opinions that are off-putting to Trump’s conservative base.

Hawley suggested that Trump’s conservative religious base is “very depressed” after Gorsuch’s legislative ruling affirming the liberal notion that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits the firing of LGBT individuals earlier this month.

The Missouri Senator explained:

Who actually goes out and votes for judges? It’s conservative Catholics, conservative Jews, evangelicals, Mormons. That coalition of folks is vitally important to the Republican Party. I think they feel just shocked at what’s going on with the Supreme Court, so I think it’s vital that they be heard from and involved in this process.

Though Trump’s judicial appointments have certainly not been in vain, recent SCOTUS rulings have made Trump’s conservative base quite nervous. Trump is attempting to reassure his supporters, but if he doesn’t take Hawley’s advice into account, it may be a futile effort.

    1. AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2020, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

  1. I want to know what can be done about the Justices when they do not follow the constitution. What remedy do we have to that? Their job is to uphold the Constitution, not legislate from the bench.

      1. Roberts is an Obama guy, Gorsuch is more of a disappointment. Roberts should be replaced due to the fact
        that he is not following the Constitution but trying to agree with the liberal Democrats. I wonder what is the
        Roberts and Obuma’s agreement

        1. I do not seem to remember where President Obama chose Chief Justice Roberts for the Supreme Court???? Everything that does not go your way you seem to blame the Democrats…… you’re following in the footsteps of Trump, sorry to say!

          1. Democrats are blamed mostly because they are guilty of trying to unseat a duly elected president using all kinds of made up charges in hopes something will stick but they have been unsuccessful thus far as their claims have been based on lies.

        2. Roberts has been compromised and is being warned to toe the Democrat line. He and his wife evidently illegally adopted their children from Ireland.What other crimes there could be I don’t know.

  2. Judges must be chosen based on past performance. We can not just pick judges that agree with President Trump no mate if we like him or not. A judge stands on his or her record. Like any other human they can change their opinios as time changes. Not every opinion is perfect so there must be room to change ocasionally.

      1. Based on the constitution Roberts is a big big big disappointment. I wish there is a way to get rid of him,

      2. Agree Has anyone checked his bank account for large deposits outside of pay days? From his rulings someone surely must have their finger in him. His ruling on Obama Care was a doozie calling the fee a tax when all tax laws must start in the House. The ACA did not making it illegal either way.

    1. Sorry she exhibits too much common sense to be on that court. Besides I think she has read the constitution that alone would shoot her down.

  3. Disappointed. It seems the deep state is deep but Trump hasn’t done well at all with personnel selections–whether that happens to be cabinet people, to judicial, to thinking Lindsey Graham is a doer and supporter because he is a big empty talker. I don’t know what his vetting mechanism is—but it’s not good at all. He has more traitors and poor performing former employees who haven’t served him well. Don’t identify or select people who are ‘owed’ a position because that hasn’t served him at all, he is being betrayed by them. I think he is very difficult to work for but vetting needs to be better so all of his supporters can be proud of him and their accomplishments.

  4. I like Senator Cruz for a Supreme Court judge, we need him in the White House in a capacity where he can use his influences.

  5. Roberts was either bought off by the Democrats, or the Democrats found some dirt on Roberts, but there definitely something wrong here. Rumor has it something about him illegally adopting a child from some country. Perhaps that is something that needs to be looked into…I really don’t know, but he sure made a 360 turn all of a sudden. Very disappointing and disgusting. God Bless America

  6. I agree with C.Lasaint and Jim. Former Senator Jim Demint should be considered. How about Charlie Daniels. Yes, seriously.

    1. I would support Charlie Daniels for SCOTUS. He at least has some common sense, which puts him way ahead of the mental defectives’ rulings we have been getting from SCOTUS for decades.

      If the Judges are not ruling according to The Constitution, then why do we need Judges in the first place?
      Why do they even need to know the law, if they plan to ignore it anyway?

      The majority of our leadership has been sadly lacking for many many years, and the sad state of America is proof of this.

      1. I agree totally dnfu!! ! The majority of our Repugnentlican leadership has been severely lacking for the last 3 1/2 years….. it begins at the top!!! Look where our country is right now – are you enjoying our sad state of affairs…… we certainly can & will do better when election time rolls around with NEW leadership!!charlie

  7. I’d say he needs to be more thorough in vetting his nominees because lately the SCOTUS rulings have been disappointing to Trump’s conservative base. I know I’m not happy because if they’re on the fence about issues when is one ruling really going to go off on the liberal side? They interpret the law of the land without repercussion from the voting public so that is a huge amount of power in their hands. That’s why I was so glad Hillary didn’t get to nominate justices but couple of Trump’s aren’t looking too good right now either. I think he needs to reach out to them privately and find out just what the hell they think they’re doing.

  8. To President Trump and Josh Hawley:
    regarding the rulings of Neil Gorsuch John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh lately-we conservative Republicans are not nervous.
    We’re Pissed!
    I for one am so concerned for the rule of law and what it means Now, and what it will mean in the future. My children’s children’s future since we’ve already basically lost Academia and that failed socialist society is already totalitarian.
    Give us some hope and put out a new list Mr. President

  9. Roberts has always been this way. Remember when people were complaining about the Obama Care Mandate? It went to the Supreme Court and his remedy was “to make it a tax”. You never know which way they will go which is sad.

  10. I question most of Trumps picks during his time in office. He has had to fire a good many of his own picks for his administration and eat crow from his picks for the SCOTUS.

    1. I believe a lot of his picks were done on purpose to bring out a deep state player. Once that was done he criticized them and fired them and in the background one or two people quietly left. Other picks were at the advise of traitors he didn’t realize did not have his back at all.

  11. I find it interesting that anything I write critical of a Democrat is checked before allowing it and anything I write critical of Trump is allowed. Bias? Absolutely.

  12. First the President must be re-elected, then he can decide who belongs at the Supreme court. He needs to thoroughly vet the individual he selects, he cannot afford to appoint another swing type candidate, the like of Roberts.

  13. If his appointees aren’t going to jive with the conservative expectations then he should be a lot more cautious with his nominations.

    1. I love Judge Jeanine! One problem though is that beautiful woman is in her 60s. I know! Hard to believe! But you would want someone young enough to be around for 25 or 35 years at the very least.

  14. Kavanaugh clearly should not be on the Supreme Court. BUT the real problem is that Trump does
    not want a Court that is best for America, Trump wants support only for his terrible presidency.

    1. And your reasoning for such a wild accusation? Guess your choice would be more on the line of Schumeror maybe Pelosi?

  15. John Roberts has been extraordinary as chief justice. The problem for Dotard Donald is that John Roberts is far and away smarter than the comb over emperor is.

    1. Cruz is not eligible under the Constitution, he is a Canadian citizen, an illegal immigrant and this would be proven with a forensic investigation..

  16. I am very disappointed with the supreme court justices lately. Roberts should be impeached and replaced.

    1. I agree, this bum has turned into a complete traitor and disgrace. Impeach him, as he sure isn’t doing the job he was picked for

  17. THE MEMBERS OF THE Supreme Court SHOULD TRY TO REMEMBER THEIR OATH??????? IT WAS NOT A POLITICAL OATH!!!!……IT WAS AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE United States………NOT THEIR OWN POLITICAL BELIEVES!!!!!!!!! TO ME THERE SHOULD BE A LAW THE DISMISSES THEM IF THEY “DO NOT” UPHOLD THE LAWS………THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS MATTER AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD BE REALLY CONCERNED THAT “ANY ONE” USES THE Supreme Court FOR THEIR OWN SATISFICATION ?????????? ACTUALLY IT IS DISGRACEFUL IN THAT POSITION!!!!!!!!!!

  18. It truly is a sad commentary to realize people you trusted are turning out to be traitors and liars! One can only imagine the sadness our president feels to have to accept his trust wasn’t justified!
    I’ve read some of the remarks, and find it superficial in some who believe a president is brilliant enough to run the country on his own!! REALLY?? That is impossible, so he has to trust people he’s dealt with to fill positions he knows he isn’t the best for it himself! Thus, he becomes HUMAN! So, when you criticize, be careful you’re not playing god –pelosi!!

    1. He’s done a better job than anyone in my lifetime! All the while he’s been attacked everyday and sometimes more than once a day! What he’s accomplished in LESS THAN 4 yrs is more than any other President accomplished in4-8 yrs, especially Obama, he was just a GREED, CORRUPT, SEL- SERVING SOB!

      1. What Trump has accomplished in 3 1/2 years is certainly more than any other president in our lifetime – he has set a lifetime record for telling lies to Americans, & has divided our country & allies more than any other president in American history! He has fired more top level in his administration. He has had more affairs with countless women. He has used more vulgar language & disgraced more people & bullies everyone if he doesn’t get his way. He makes every decision based on himself & re-election & not what is good for Americans. Impeachment on the horizon……..

  19. It is time to get Rid of the Cowards, that don’t uphold the LAWS. Their Fillings about the changing laws does not count. Do your JOB right or get out of the Courts.

  20. Conservative christians are not depressed,Josh Hawley know what you are talking about.We are fervent about this President and his agenda.

  21. You know something is truly wrong by, Sotomayor hasn’t been correct yet, RBG is barely alive, two or more on the bench no one even heard of…

  22. Some things that President Trump is doing are based on business decision experience, he does need to listen closer to what the politicians suggest and either go with the suggestion or, be cautious in modification to the suggestion so he does not fall into a elite established swamp creature, like the swamp creatures he is trying to eliminate. BUT, he has to calm down in his tweets and does not need to go to every fight the democrats invite him to but if he does respond, respond to the issue and not so much to the person, let those in his administration, after consulting with him, face the adversaries … Pull an obama, be involved but not connected to the response. (wink, wink)

  23. David I agree with you 100%

    “BUT, he has to calm down in his tweets and does not need to go to every fight the democrats invite him to but if he does respond, respond to the issue and not so much to the person, let those in his administration, after consulting with him, face the adversaries … Pull an obama, be involved but not connected to the response”. (wink, wink)

  24. Only God knows their heart and He certainly can tell the President who to pick and the President should go by what God tells him, not man.
    Donald Trump is President because God looks at the heart and He put him in office even though the election was rigged for Clinton. God is not finished with our President, therefore, it won’t matter what they do, he will win again because God wants him there.

  25. If the judges are young and married there will be social pressure on them to conform to Washington’s leftest view point or be ostracized.
