Trump Releases List of Potential Supreme Court Nominees

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


President Donald Trump updated his list of individuals he would consider nominating to the Supreme Court should he win a second term in office. A standing list of 20 candidates nearly doubled on Wednesday when the President announced 20 more potential appointees to the nation’s highest court.


Of course, the President would only be allowed to make a Supreme Court appointment in the case that one if its current nine justices vacates their seat. Still, Trump believes that his promise to appoint conservative judges to the court was a key to winning the 2016 election, when he reassured wary Republicans that he would reward their support with conservative nominations.

The list released by the White House features the names of several well-known conservatives, including three sitting U.S. senators. Now, with over forty names on a list and zero Supreme Court seats to fill, many view the entire announcement as a campaign stunt. That argument is verified by precedent.

2016 List

In May of 2016,  just as it became clear that Trump would be the Republican nominee for president, he released a long-list of conservatives he would consider appointing to the Supreme Court. Notably missing from that list: Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, the two judges Trump ultimately placed on the court. By September of that year, Trump had released a second list of names, which included Gorsuch, but not Kavanaugh.

As a campaign tactic, it may have worked. Even Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who was a hesitant Trump endorser, said that voting for Trump would be worth it if it meant placing conservative justices on the high court. And while Trump has fulfilled his commitment, both to the Supreme Court and to lower federal courts, those appointees have not necessarily come from his public list of contenders.

2020 List

Among the 40 individuals Trump now claims he will consider for appointment to the Supreme Court are three sitting senators: Sen. Ted Crux (R-TX), Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO). In the past, it has not been uncommon for U.S. Senators to ascend to the Supreme Court, but no such appointment has been made in nearly 50 years.

Sen. Hawley responded by saying that, as he has told the President, he is not interested in the job, though his priority for any judicial nominee is overturning Roe v. Wade. Sen. Cotton, while responding neutrally to his consideration, also said that “It’s time for Roe. v. Wade to go.” Meanwhile, Sen. Cruz simply said that he was honored to be in the running.

Among the other names on the list are several federal judges, former solicitors general, and White House lawyers. Commenting on his list, Trump said that each of the potential appointees were conservatives in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

But while there is not currently an open Supreme Court seat, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the 87-year-old dean of the court’s liberal bloc, announced this summer that her cancer has returned. That means that her days on the court may be limited. And McConnell has said that he would be willing to push through a Supreme Court appointment in the final days of a Trump presidency, despite the hardline he took in 2016, when he forbade President Barack Obama from filling a seat for almost a year because of the looming presidential election. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has released no such list. He did, however, pledge in a March debate that he would nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court if he becomes president.

    [" The ad most important question is and will ever be, are these figures JURSTIC PERSON in Person, members and sworn in in the BAR ASSOCIATION, yes or no? And will than the Supreme Court NOT anymore in the Hands of the Owner and Insurer UPU with ins Employees being payed so by whom? ! So in private Commercial Hands under the Jurisdiction of The Royal Admiralty Land&Sea, Martime Law with John Lacklands Three Martial Laws, as contractors of THECROWN, which belongs into the City of London which belongs to the private commercial S.P.Q.R JesuitbrotherhoodGroup the ‚vaticanstate‘ Rom, and in this the BLACK NOBILITY aso. The Bookkeeper and Moneymaker and Moneydealer is in all of that The Jewish Zionist BigFamiliy- Tree of the Rothschilds & related Contractors and Partners ?

    To write this clear, as it is since the Jesuit-Brother Adam Weishaupt privatized (privare: to rob and to steel) conquered the White House, 1776, America is entirely under control and order of private commercial Jewish Zionism BigBusiness by two hand full very powerful families and there dark Fraternities. POTUS is just a very smart President of the private commercial Group Washington D.C under the Control of Jewish Rabbis. Listen to the speech of Marvin Hier, Wiesenthal Foundation and the catholic Bishop, what they said at the Inauguration-Party, who has the saying. Not the POTUS in the private commercial Businessfunction, as a Employer.

    This all is a Giant-Private-Commercial-Pirate-Ship. A second Gladio-False-Flage “TITANIC”2.0, knowing in the meanwhile, that is was one of the biggest thinkable planned Insurance-Fraud to get rid of some important Families, like the Astors.

    The Old British Colonialization War, with the 13 Colonies and all whats happen around, as written in many books like “ The Red Fog over America” is still ongoing, they just calling it : TRADE-WAR, because of shifting everyTHING and EVERYone into the Trade-Jurisdiction by making out of human beings,...

    (iii)….So, do you really think that America and the Americans, Europe and the Europeans, especially the still illegal occupied German Nation, Africa, Eurasia, all 7 Nations will be sovereign and back into real Democracy with clear honourable rule and behaviour and thrive all together in Peace, Love, and Freedom?? As long as the S.P.Q.R private Commercial UN-System of the Jesuitbrotherhood an all related Families and Contractors is existing in this form, nothing will change to good. Impossible. These plans are more than 3500 years old and getting worse since the the Roman Catholic Church took over ALL SPIRITS-SOULS-BODY, by the CANON-LAW The Nimrod of all Jurisdictions. X !!!! Chatolic= HighOldGerman, means EVIL !!!! So, whom belongs the “innocent” White Ships? God of sun : AmundRa. Sunday. 7th day for satanic sacrificial ceremonies on the stone altar : lambs, calves, sheep and horns that do not want to recognize that they are consumer products, THINGS, TOYS, and are traded here, except being deceived and sacrificed under false stars, signs and symbols, all of which are attributed to the EL, BA’AL i.e. Satan !! in the dress of Nimrod. XXXL . fff=666=vvv . Open your eyes. Read the Bible, everything is explained, warned and written down. Holy Santa Corona, where are you. Jesus Christ, where are you !!!!! “Oh my God, why did you left me !!!!” Time to wake up and to claim all our rights back, by declaring yourself b a c k o n l a n d as a living Human Being, only as a natural Person, and not their JURISTIC PERSON, SERVI. Do your homework first. Because at this moment, when you go on the road to say no…in which Jurisdiction are you operating? IN THEIRS !! As THEIR PRODUCT. So they can and do correct ( Correctional-Centre, FEMA/CAMPS/ A’BEIT MACHT FREI-Camps the not good working Product THING-MR.MRS DOE,JOHN. So the Business-Order, so their Terms of Trade. So their Private Commercial LAWS and JURISTCTION YOU ARE imprisoned. We all are in this shit, without knowing it. AnnavonReitz is explaining this. “] a.r.r.s.o

    (ii)……with magna charta and heabeas corbus, the natural rights the God given Laws and Rights, via the 12 Tabel-Laws, S.P.Q.R SERVI=SLAVE=ANIMAL=THING, following strictly the Hebrew-Version of the Bible-Story-Book, which is clearly explaining the Jurisdiction in the Revelation !!!! The Reality Show of today, enriched by the Book : “The Eye of the Darkness!” realized in the Movies “ CONTAGION” “I PET GOAT2””They live””The 5thWave””in-time””MATRIX” “Independence Day;4th of July”” GEO-STORM”, in which a VIRUS played the focus of these films . They are docus, not e n t e r t a i n m e n t.
    So, as long as POTUS is 33.Deg.Scottish Rite, hand in hand with the Jesuit-Brotherhoods, deeply related via Jared Kushner to the private commercial Jewish Zionism via the Rothschilds and Lubawitscher a.s.o, the private Product of them DOLLAR is the key of oppression and prisonGates, there will be NO LIBERTY and Freedom, Sovereignty. In which hands are GOD ? Gold-Oil-Diamonds, enriched with Gas and Power for your daily Entertainment??? Rockefeller-Oppenheimer-Rothschild. The Triangle upside-down. USA-EURASIA-AFRIKA. They are playing G O A T GOD of all THINGS !!! And WHO are their THINGS????? YOU and YOU and YOU, MR./MRS.DOE,JOHN. And of course, ALL KIDS !!! from the moment, when : THE MOTHER DELIVERS THE BABY through their juristic PASS-PORT in to the Gladhands of DOCK-Tors, changing the Jurisdiction from the High See LORDS into the LAND-LORDS. CHIP and VACCINE and a new account is created, as a legal tender against all debts, private and public. Their Family-Bible, the GreenBack. The DarkSide of the HoneyMoon. !!! The Trade-War is now about the question who will have the entire saying of the 7th Continets. NAEU/EURABIA or EURASIA, secret capital : NUR SULTAN known as Astana. Askenazi/Khazzar Territory. And on to who will possess : AFRIKA, because of all ad most seldom Earth to privatize-colonize the SLAVES into the Jurisdiction of G-B GREATBRITAIN, as the fictional 8th S.P.Q.R Old Roman-British-Babylonian Empire of all privatized Nations and their man-made-SERVI. THINGS. BOND. Trade at the WallStreet, the accounts stored at the private commercial dept. of the treasury.
