34 years after liberals claimed a conservative scalp, her son rides back into town
President Trump’s nomination of U.S. Circuit Court Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United State Supreme Court has sent liberals into an outrage spiral.
And it’s not just because of his conservative record. It’s because they thought Gorsuch was a name they had killed and buried.
Neil Gorsuch is the son of Anne Gorsuch of Denver, Colorado.
34 years ago, Anne Gorsuch was a member of the Colorado House of Representatives, who were known as the “Crazies” for their unrelenting conservatism.
She was also Ronald Reagan’s first Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
And if you think Sarah Palin sets liberal hair on fire, Anne Gorsuch was weaponized napalm.
Gorsuch wasted no time in letting the EPA and Washington, D.C. know their days of abusing and harassing Americans was over.
”As a long-term Coloradan,” she told Congress in her confirmation hearing, ”I come before you with a deep appreciation of the unique beauties which we enjoy in our environment — the majesty and grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, the openness and sense of space of our eastern plains.”
And she wasn’t about to let a few pencil pushers in Washington control her beloved home.
In just 22 months on the job, she slashed the EPA’s budget by 22 percent.
She gutted the agency’s bloated payroll. When she brought on new hires, she employed people with actual working experience in the industries they regulate.
In other words, she was everything liberals hated.
They would not let this stand, so they launched the original “War on Women.”
The then-Democrat-controlled Congress savagely attacked Gorsuch, bombarding her with subpoenas and investigations.
Their goal was to so completely overwhelm her with legal fights and obstruction she would not be able to continue cutting spending and deregulating.
Anne Gorsuch wouldn’t go down without a fight, daring Congress to jail her for refusing to turn over documents.
Unable to get support from a Reagan administration still settling into Washington, Gorsuch had little choice but to resign.
Reagan offered her the chairmanship of the National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere, but she eventually declined and returned to Colorado.
An unbowed Gorsuch published a book titled “Are You Tough Enough?”
Sadly, she would not live to see her son’s nomination, passing away from cancer in 2004 at the age of just 62.
But now a new Gorsuch is in town.
And the EPA’s radical agenda will once again be on a Gorsuch’s docket.
And this one has even more power than the woman liberals tried to destroy.
