Why NOT Supporting Trump Now Would Be a Huge Mistake

As President of the United States, Donald Trump will save the Supreme Court of the United States from an Age of Progressive Judicial Activism that will bring about the kind of "fundamental transformation" of the United States of which then presidential candidate Barack Obama eagerly spoke in 2008.

Two months before his death, in denouncing The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, Patrick Henry declared: "Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs."

To make America great again, it's time for all Republicans and conservatives to stand united with other Trump supporter, not to ponder whether to stay home, or to vote for a third party candidate, or--the ultimate revenge of the sore loser--to vote for Hillary.

They should pillory Hillary, not desert The Donald.

Because...Ii Hillary becomes POTUS, there goes SCOTUS (and the rest of the federal judiciary).

As President of the United States, Donald Trump will save the Supreme Court of the United States from an Age of Progressive Judicial Activism that will bring about the kind of "fundamental transformation" of the United States of which then presidential candidate Barack Obama eagerly spoke in 2008.

Trump is the anti-Obama and that's the antidote the United States needs.

THE FATE OF SCOTUS ALONE MAKES A TRUMP VICTORY NOT ONLY APPROPRIATE, BUT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.

Kudos to Ted Cruz for acknowledging reality and suspending his campaign.

John Kasich should do the same and then graciously host the Republican National Convention this summer.

Anyone who wants constitutional conservatives appointed to SCOTUS should not let the perfect become the enemy of the good enthusiastically support Trump.

Bill Clinton appointed Justices Ginsburg and Breyer to the Supreme Court.

Barack Obama appointed Justices Sotomayor and Kagan to the Supreme Court.

Those four liberal judicial activists are one reliable vote away from rewriting the Constitution under the guise of interpreting it whenever they think that would be helpful.

Constitutional conservatives shudder at what SCOTUS nominations Hillary would make.

Note to Ted Cruz: You aren't eligible to be Vice President, thanks to the Twelfth Amendment, but you don't have to be a natural born United States citizen to be a SCOTUS Justice, so Trump can nominate you. Endorsing him sooner rather than later would be smart.

Hillary should be sending admitted bitter enders like Erick Erickson flowers:

Erickson:

"Conservatives...and the [Republican] party as a whole, still need a viable alternative to the electoral disaster that comes with Donald Trump.

"Right now Cruz is that only viable alternative. Win or lose in Indiana today, Ted Cruz needs to stay in till the bitter end."

Cruz acknowledged that he is not viable and was too smart not to step aside.

Erickson and others frustrated by the voters' expression of their will should start working to elect Trump instead of trying to create the "electoral disaster" that they think would show that they are smart.

Cruz realized that the "rule or ruin" approach would be a huge mistake.

He should tell Erickson.

It's time for Erickson to put aside his bitterness and do what is best for the United States.

It's particularly important for Republican Senate candidates to support Trump in order to give his SCOTUS nominees the best chance at confirmation.

Why?

Because Trump supporters won and they are not going to be taken for granted!

Trump supporters aren't going to support Republican candidates who aren't supporting Trump.

THAT would be an electoral disaster for those foolish Republican candidates.

Trump supporters WILL support Republican candidates supporting Trump, because they know he needs Congressional support to make America great again.

Note to Kelly Ayotte: If you are going to be reelected to the United States Senate from New Hampshire. you'll need a united Republican party. Trump and you will win or lose together in New Hampshire in November.

Note to Rob Portman (and John Kasich): If Rob Portnam is going to be reelected to the United States Senator from Ohio, he'll need a united party. Trump and Portman will win or lose together in Ohio in November.

Note to John McCain: If you are going to be reelected to the United States Senate from Arizona. you'll need a united party. Trump and you will win or lose together in Arizona in November.

Note to Pat Toomey and Club for Growtrh: If Pat Toomey is going to be reelected to the United States Senate from Pennsylvania, he'll need a united party. Trump and Toomey will win or lose together in Pennsylvania in November.

Note to Chuck Schumer: Trump and Wendy Long, your Republican/Conservative/Reform Parties rival, inwill win or lose together in New York in November and, unlike Mitt Romney, Trump is planning to win New York.

SAVE SCOTUS BY STOPPING HILLARY AND ELECT REPUBLICAN SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES WHO SUPPORT TRUMP!

Biography - Michael J. Gaynor

Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.

Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.

The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.

Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
