Hillary Clinton's vow to push Supreme Court left galvanizes conservatives wary of Donald Trump

ST. LOUIS — Hillary Clinton ended up helping Donald Trump repair some of the damage from his lewd comments about women this weekend when she ran hard left on the Supreme Court — reinforcing the one overriding reason conservative Republicans have for voting for their flawed presidential nominee.

Her promise to use Supreme Court nominations to push a left-wing agenda did more than anything Mr. Trump said during the debate to win back his supporters, conservative leaders said Wednesday. That included evangelical voters who were repulsed by a 2005 videotape that surfaced over the weekend showing the Republican nominee using vulgar language to boast of his sexual exploits.

“I believe it justifies overriding other concerns like those generated by this tape,” said the Rev. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life.

“Virtue exercised in our own personal choices is important, but policies contain or contradict virtues as well, and there is a corruption in our public policy right now,” he said. “So it is not only that it outweighs the personal failing, of which of course he is repudiated himself and is repenting of, but corruption and immoral outrageous are also incarnated in public policies.”

If this happens you can only blame Ryan, McCain, the Bush family and the other Republican traitors.

If you want the next president to turn the Constitution into a worthless rag, vote for Hillary.

This is THE issue in this election-- the Supreme Court.

Whether you like your candidate or not, the future of the country will be decided by the SCOTUS choices the candidate makes.

So even if we don't agree fully, we need to think long-term.

Wake up, Conservatives! Here's your one chance to lose the Clintons for good. Blow this one and the game is over for at least eight years, during which the handbasket will be halfway to Hell, with your country in it.

It's time to dig up dirt on Clinton's SCOTUS choices. I'm sure there's plenty to be had.
