11. I believe Senate Democrats could filibuster the resolution to recess

And force Republicans to agree to pro-forma sessions.

Both the House and Senate must agree before they can recess.

As I recall, McConnell started doing did this sometime in 2010 before Republicans took the House, to thwart Obama recess appointments.

Interesting question, though!

4. until the end of the next session; in practice this means the end of the calendar year:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recess_appointment

To remain in effect, a recess appointment must be approved by the Senate by the end of the next session of Congress, or the position becomes vacant again; in current practice this means that a recess appointment must be approved by roughly the end of the next calendar year. Recess appointments are authorized by Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, which states:


The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

5. You have to believe that Gorsuch would take a recess appointment

 

I suspect that he would withdraw. You would probably get someone a lot less likely to pass a confirmation, maybe Melania for example.

10. Turtle has already scheduled the

nuclear option vote for Thursday. It's on CNN.com now.

I'd love to see him stroke out live on CSPAN as they count the votes.

9. That is what I suspect he has up his sleeve if all else fails

I just wish Obama would have used it when he had a chance. Yes. All hell would have broken loose, but we had
A better chance then than now...and hell was eventually going to break loose anyway.
