Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy resigns – here’s President Trump’s Supreme Court list

By Robert Laurie

As if the Democrats Hadn’t had enough bad news from the Supreme Court this week, Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced his retirement.  That means President Trump will get another bite at the SCOTUS apple -something which is sure to send leftists everywhere into anaphylactic shock.  If you thought they were unhinged before, I suspect “we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

Here’s the message from Justice Kennedy:

…And this may be a good time to once again examine the President’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees:

  • Amy Coney Barrett of Indiana, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
  • Keith Blackwell of Georgia, Supreme Court of Georgia
  • Charles Canady of Florida, Supreme Court of Florida
  • Steven Colloton of Iowa, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit
  • Allison Eid of Colorado, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
  • Britt Grant of Georgia, Supreme Court of Georgia
  • Raymond Gruender of Missouri, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit
  • Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
  • Brett Kavanaugh of Maryland, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
  • Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit

  • Edward Mansfield of Iowa, Supreme Court of Iowa

Kennedy’s departure has been rumored for well over a year, and the President’s team has announced that they will name a replacement before the midterm elections, so you can bet they already have someone in mind.  Here’s hoping we’ll be lucky enough to find and confirm another Gorsuch.
