5 Facts You Need to Know About Merrick Garland

garlandOn Wednesday, President Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Here are five quick facts you need to know about Garland.

1. Garland is considered anti-Second Amendment. As the National Review noted last week: “Back in 2007, Judge Garland voted to undo a D.C. Circuit court decision striking down one of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation” and voted “to uphold an illegal Clinton-era regulation that created an improvised gun registration requirement.” Obama will use his pick to pursue a gun control agenda.

2. Garland has favored environmental regulations. As SCOTUSblog noted in 2010: “On environmental law, Judge Garland has in a number of cases favored contested EPA regulations and actions when challenged by industry, and in other cases he has accepted challenges brought by environmental groups.” That could be very important, with Obama’s Clean Power Plan in the balance.

3. Garland’s positions on abortion and social issues are murky. Some liberals are worried that Garland may not be unambiguously pro-choice. Richard Wolf of USA Today writes: “During 19 years at the D.C. Circuit, Garland has managed to keep a low profile. The court’s largely administrative docket has left him without known positions on issues such as abortion or the death penalty.”

    .Garland supervised Justice Department investigations into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.

    OK City was a False Flag and the Unabomber a government psyop. He’d be perfect.

    Yes, PM Zoolander will give everything that isn’t his away, and Now we have to live with another Truduh. But that is how the liberanos do things, by stealth, Stephan Dion worked his campain on climate change because he believed the hype that everyone here was on board with it and the Libertards got hammered, Barely a word about it from Trudeau, and with the Media party up here doing what the media party has been doing down there, I knew this was coming. So Go Trump! 😆

    And Amber, Yes, I have seen your can’t make Steel without coal post lately, And Exactly, I said that you can’t make it without coal or coke and I probably mispelled it witrh a K , But I told you that.But that isn’t just Me saying it, or you saying it,that has been the way it has always been. Everytime they recycle that steel they are burning off that carbon and making it more brittle! So the bottom Line is you need to keep adding that carbon!

What’s a few $Billion in added debt to stop the seas from rising and stopping the earth’s fever . No wonder he gets along with one of the worst Presidents the USA has ever had .
    The young will be paying this guys bills their whole lives .
