Anything that makes the Democrats sweat and give them nightmares must be good for the conservative cause. Well these numbers, 78, 80, & 83, are all tied to Supreme Court Justices. That is the age of these three. This could swing the SCOTUS to the conservative side for generations to come if President Trump gets to fill 3 more.
As seen frist on ConservativeTribune.com:
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to become, if he is confirmed, the 113th justice to sit on the Supreme Court. That’s a pretty big number, but a rash of smaller numbers is what’s really worrying the Democrats.
Those numbers are 78, 80, and 83 — and they could be what stops Senate Democrats from blocking Gorsuch’s confirmation to the court.
What are the numbers? Well, 78 is the age of Justice Stephen Breyer. Eighty is the age of Justice Anthony Kennedy. And 83 is the age of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Breyer and Ginsburg are two of the most reliably liberal votes on the high court. Kennedy is a swing vote who often sides with the court’s liberals.
In the next four years, as the Washington Examiner pointed out, any or all of them might be unable to perform the duties to which they were appointed for one reason or another, opening the way for Trump to make one or more new appointments to the Supreme Court.
Senate Democrats who might be considering a filibuster to stop Gorsuch’s appointment have to know they’d be tempting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to change the Senate’s rules to end the filibuster entirely, the so-called “nuclear option.” And that could have disastrous implications for the Democrats further down the road.
