What the Supreme Court battle suggests about culture wars

Maine Sen. Susan Collins won’t support any Supreme Court nominee looking to overturn Roe v. Wade

Prior to her tenure on the court, Larsen served as an associate justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, beginning in 2015.

Sri Srinivasan, a judge on the DC circuit court of appeals, came closest to be named but lost in one-to-one toss up in 2016, when President Barack Obama went with Merrick Garland, whose nomination was blocked by a Republican-controlled U.S. senate. There's one name on the list who is garnering particular attention, however - someone who is reportedly one of four finalists who have already met with Mr Trump in the White House.

"I view Roe v. Wade as being settled law", Collins said in comments carried by The Hill this week.

Mr Trump has expressed an interest in nominating a woman to the bench, which could be advantageous if - as liberals fear and evangelicals hope - the new nominee helps the court either reverse or greatly undercut judicial protections for legalised abortion in the coming years.

If he's right about that, he could be playing at not just the next World Cup but the 2026 World Cup as well. With that, dreams of a quarter-final between the two greatest players were shattered.

The Republicans have slender two-vote lead in the 100-member Senate and at least one Senator from the party, Susan Collins has said that keeping abortions legal would be a requirement for her to support the Trump nominee and another, Lisa Murkowski, has previously opposed efforts to overturn the 1973 ruling.

Trump is now interviewing potential nominees to replace pro-gay and sometimes pro-abortion Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement last week.

"I had a very, very interesting morning", Trump said as he greeted visiting Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Oval Office. Justin Clark, director of the Office of Public Liaison, will oversee White House coordination with outside groups. The Senate confirmed Gorsuch after a fierce battle.

Trump said while running for president that he would nominate "pro-life" justices to the Court, but it's not exactly clear how pro-life they have to be. Meanwhile, just 33 percent of respondents said they want to see the vote postponed until after the elections.

Customs and Border Protection is in charge of apprehending undocumented immigrants within 100 miles of the border. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished .

For now, the liberal groups have launched a campaign against all candidates on Mr.Trump's list.

Trump has also been appointing young conservative judges to the lower courts at a rapid pace.

"All the hysteria over Trump and also this nomination has revealed the religious intolerance as well", Campos-Duffy said on "Fox & Friends".

President Barack Obama appointed hundreds of judges to the lower courts once the Senate adopted the Reid rule.

Trump backs off claim of convicing Saudi Arabia to boost oil production
But destabilizing OPEC could throw global oil markets into even greater turmoil than they've seen since Trump's election. But he said it's unlikely that decrease could sustain itself as demand spikes, leading prices to rise by wintertime.

I am, therefore, in accordance with Article 144 (2), seeking the approval of parliament for the appointment of the nominees as Justices of the Supreme Court. their curricula vitae are hereby attached.
