They didn't change the law. They followed the Constitution.

The Filibuster Rule which the Republicans knew they had to change for Gorsuch.

That's a Senate rule not a law. The law is the Constitution.

So the Republican control Senate gutted their own rule to give Gorsuch a life time position on The Supreme Court, is that what I am hearing Steven?

It wasn't a Republican rule. It was a Democrat rule employed during the George Jr. administration.

Soon after the inauguration of Bush as President in January 2001, many liberal academics became worried that he would begin packing the federal judiciary with conservative jurists. Yale law professor Bruce Ackerman wrote an article in the February 2001 edition of the magazine The American Prospect that encouraged the use of the filibuster to stop Bush from placing any nominee on the Supreme Court during his first term.[3] In addition, law professors Cass Sunstein (University of Chicago) and Laurence Tribe (Harvard), along with Marcia Greenberger of the National Women's Law Center, counseled Senate Democrats in April 2001 "to scrutinize judicial nominees more closely than ever." Specifically, they said, "there was no obligation to confirm someone just because they are scholarly or erudite." [4]

On May 9, 2001, President Bush announced his first eleven court of appeals nominees in a special White House ceremony.[5] This initial group of nominees included Roger Gregory, a Clinton recess-appointed judge to the Fourth Circuit, as a peace offering to Senate Democrats. There was, however, immediate concern expressed by Senate Democrats and liberal groups like the Alliance for Justice.[6][7] Democratic Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York said that the White House was "trying to create the most ideological bench in the history of the nation."[8]

As a result, from June 2001 to January 2003, when the Senate in the 107th Congress was controlled by the Democrats, many conservative appellate nominees were stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee and never given hearings or committee votes.[9]

Is was Mitch McConnell. It's now taken for granted that McConnell decided to block President Obama from replacing Scalia, but that was by no means a given. McConnell's decision to do so was not some sort of begrudging decision after weeks of battering by conservatives. On the day that Scalia was discovered dead, McConnell came right out of the gate to say, "The American peopleř should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President."

Conservatives have had plenty of differences with Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell. But now that the Senate has confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, it's worth saying that McConnell deserves a lot of credit and mission accomplished.

The Senate refused to consent to Garland. The Senate has consented to Gorsuch. They did their job.

The dumbing down of the Democrats is complete. The Presidency was stolen, the Senate was stolen, the House was stolen, the state Governors were stolen, the state Legislatures were stolen. BLAH BLAH BLAH...
