(CNSNews.com) – Democrats insist it is inappropriate and offensive to malign a federal judge, but listen to what they’ve said about you, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told Judge Neil Gorsuch at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday.

“My colleagues, the Democrats, have a right to engage in whatever attacks they choose. But it’s a little rich for them to be maligning a sitting federal judge, and at the same time giving speeches about how unacceptable it is for anyone to criticize a federal judge. You can’t have both at the same time.”

Cruz read some of the Democrats’ criticism of Gorsuch (see below).

Cruz spoke after Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) noted that in the first two days of the Gorsuch confirmation hearing, “we have seen the independence of Judge Gorsuch attacked no fewer than 27 times. We’ve seen the independence of the Supreme Court of the United States and of the federal judiciary called into question no fewer than 17 times. Those are stats from the first two days alone,” Lee said — excluding statements made on Wednesday.

Judiciary Committee Members Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) were among those who criticized President Trump for referring to the “so-called judge” who ruled against Trump’s travel ban; and for saying during the campaign that a “Mexican” judge (by heritage only) could not fairly rule on a case involving Trump.

Even Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of S.C. told Gorsuch on Wednesday that Trump’s criticism of federal judges “was really out of bounds.” Graham said he just wanted to “associate myself” with Gorsuch’s comment that any criticism of a sitting judge’s honesty or integrity is “disheartening and demoralizing.”

Sen. Cruz told Gorsuch he would not ask him to respond to any of the attacks. But he did read some of them into the record, as follows:

Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on national television, Judge Gorsuch is quote, “hostile to women’s rights and holds radical views far outside the mainstream of American legal thought.” She continued, quote, “What saddens me the most as a mom and a grandmother is his hostility towards children in school, children with autism”. She additionally went on to say quote, “if you breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine, or in any other way interact with the courts — if you care about that for your children, he’s not your guy.”

It’s interesting, given the Democrats are complaining about people criticizing federal judges. Senator Whitehouse on Monday said, quote, “tellingly, big special interests and their front groups are spending millions of dollars in a dark-money campaign to push your confirmation. They obviously think you will be worth their money.” That also somehow falls short of the Democrats’ complaints about criticisms directed at the judiciary.

Indeed, Senator Hirono, on Monday said quote, “you consistently choose corporations and powerful interests over people, ideology over commonsense and indeed the purpose of the law.” Senator Durbin, “in case after case, you either dismissed or rejected efforts by workers and families to recognize their rights and defend their freedoms.”

Senator Franken, “But if the past is prologue, then I fear that confirming you would guarantee more of the same from the Roberts court, decisions that continue to favor powerful corporate interest over the rights of average Americans.”

Tom Perez, the DNC chairman, “Gorsuch on the Supreme Court is intolerable. Judge Gorsuch would discriminate against a majority of Americans from the bench.” The chairman of the Democratic Party charging that a judge would discriminate.

“These are serious attacks. Many of them impugn your integrity directly,” Cruz said. He said the attacks “speak for themselves.”

Cruz then asked Gorsuch, “Will you pledge to be faithful to the law and the Constitution, and neither favor nor disfavor any litigant based on who they are?”

“I guarantee no more and I promise you no less,” Gorsuch replied.

“That is precisely what we should expect of judges,” Cruz responded.

Caddell on Franken: ‘If Caligula Can Put a Horse in the Roman Senate,’ Minnesota Voters ‘Have Every Right to Put a Horse’s Ass’ in Senate

 22 Mar 2017 by Dan Riehl

A Pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday regarding the second day of Judge Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation hearings, along with Trump’s victory in November and its impact on Washington.

Caddell talked about the “hostility” of the questioning by democrats and said regarding Sen. Al Franken, “the kind of contempt and disdain with which he treated the nominee … if Caligula can put a horse in the Roman senate, I guess the voters of Minnesota have every right to put a horse’s ass.”

Regarding concerns Caddell had immediately after Trump’s win, he said, “The great concern for the Trump administration is that it’s a Trump White House but is this going to be a Ryan government?”

“Is this going to be,” he added, “where they use him to impose what they want to do rather than supporting what he got elected to do?”

Caddell said he still worries about that and believe events unfolding around the healthcare bill are an example of that.

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.

    ok for Justice Ginsburgh to be sluggish and tipsy. Not ok for Justice Gorsuch to be highly intelligent.
