While liberals and the media lose their marbles over “Sharpie Gate,” and desperately try and cook up ways to impeach the president, Trump and McConnell are quietly working together to totally reshape this county’s judiciary system.
After all, what’s the best way to combat liberal activist judges?
Everyone Should Be Asking: What Happened to Julian Assange?
You do it by adding strong conservative judges who will rule based on the law, not a bunch sappy progressive feelings and emotions.
And that’s precisely what President Trump is doing.
The Senate just cleared another six of Trump’s nominees, bringing the total to a whopping 150 judges.
“This is a historic milestone,” Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said in a statement following the final floor vote in the latest judicial string. “These conservative judicial appointments will impact our nation for years to come.”
So far, the Senate has confirmed 105 Trump district court selections, and 43 circuit court nominees to go with Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The president has been fulfilling a campaign pledge to stock the federal courts with young conservatives. Democrats in many cases have objected to his nominees as too conservative or unsuited to lifetime appointments. [Bloomberg Law]
If you’re in the mood for some liberal tears, take a look at the Vox piece, which laments over Trump’s “judiciary takeover.”
One of Trump’s greatest judiciary moves has been the facelift over at the very biased 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Did you ever think you’d see the day when that progressive love-fest was broken up?
Well, it’s happening.
President Donald Trump’s judicial nominations may be shifting one of the nation’s most liberal courts further to the right, blunting what many consider his opponents’ most effective tool against administration policies.
In another ruling Friday, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit, which included a Trump appointee, scaled back a lower-court ruling to allow Trump’s asylum rules to go into effect in some parts of the country.
Legal experts caution that it can be difficult to predict how any judge will decide on a particular case, but there are signs that Trump’s district and appellate-court appointees are leading to rulings that are more favorable to his presidency.
Trump has repeatedly railed against the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which has ruled against down of his administration’s policies, including the travel ban and efforts to end Obama’s deferred action program for immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.
“It’s not fair. People should not be allowed to immediately run to this very friendly circuit and file their case,” Trump told reporters last year, promising to “look at” the court. “It’s a disgrace what happens with the Ninth Circuit,” he added. [PBS]
