the emoluments clause spells out what is unacceptable executive behavior

but no penalty spelled out to a dishonest congress who does not enforce it-

could merely not give consent and not "staff" the third branch.

surely not the intent but we have now crossed that realm of possibility-


"he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint ... Judges of the supreme Court..."

does anything dispute that of which I am unaware?
Oh, please . . . that's beyond a stretch.

it's already happening, you just don't see it


show me the line gorsuch would use, as a strict constitutionalist,

that the senate and the executive must confirm judges-

Pfffft . . .

No, it is not "already happening." It would take at least 30 years for all of them to die off, and the notion of 4-8 presidents and 15 senatorial elections happening with no confirmations is beyond improbable. This doomsday scenario you have in your head isn't real.

who would the founders view as a bigger crook?

McConnell for the way he failed to confirm Obama’s pick?

Gorsuch for his complicit behavior eroding any remaining credibility for the institution of the supreme court?

A guy caught with a bag of pot and put in jail for 3 years?

McConnell. He should have reviewed, advised, and said no.
