    Trump Is Rapidly Reshaping the Judiciary

    NYT: Trump Is Rapidly Reshaping the Judiciary

    While liberals are screaming at the sky, trump is reshaping the judiciary for the next 40 yrs.
    read bolded text below


    President Donald J. Trump has done more to reshape the federal judiciary with a conservative outlook towards the constitution than any president since Richard Nixon. This has been no accident. On Sunday, the New York Times reported in detail the systematic plan Trump and his team took to ensure a changed judiciary with strict constitutionalist bonafides.
    Charlie Savage’s piece this Sunday is well worth the read. The plan was pretty straightforward and was all started by White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II:
    "Start by filling vacancies on appeals courts with multiple openings and where Democratic senators up for re-election next year in states won by Mr. Trump — like Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania — could be pressured not to block his nominees. And to speed them through confirmation, avoid clogging the Senate with too many nominees for the district courts, where legal philosophy is less crucial.
    Nearly a year later, that plan is coming to fruition. Mr. Trump has already appointed eight appellate judges, the most this early in a presidency since Richard M. Nixon, and on Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to send a ninth appellate nominee — Mr. Trump’s deputy White House counsel, Gregory Katsas — to the floor.

    Republicans are systematically filling appellate seats they held open during President Barack Obama’s final two years in office with a particularly conservative group of judges with life tenure. Democrats — who in late 2013 abolished the ability of 41 lawmakers to block such nominees with a filibuster, then quickly lost control of the Senate — have scant power to stop them.
    Most have strong academic credentials and clerked for well-known conservative judges, like Justice Antonin Scalia. Confirmation votes for five of the eight new judges fell short of the former 60-vote threshold to clear filibusters, including John K. Bush, a chapter president of the Federalist Society, the conservative legal network, who wrote politically charged blog posts, such as comparing abortion to slavery; and Stephanos Bibas, a University of Pennsylvania law professor who once proposed using electric shocks to punish people convicted of certain crimes, although he later disavowed the idea. Of Mr. Trump’s 18 appellate nominees so far, 14 are men and 16 are white."
    While the federal judiciary system may not be on the mind of most Americans, Conservative voters who cared may have helped push President Trump over the electoral finish line. Indeed, Trump often spoke on the campaign trail how we would bring in conservative judges.


    President Trump has the opportunity to reshape constitutional law for at least the next forty years with the sheer magnitude of young, conservative, judges he is appointing.

    I like it but I'll wait and see if they are true conservatives or just more RINO's who like most democrats will pretend they are anything to get elected (or appointed.)

    Too bad your open border, diversity, socialist utopian, European, vision of America had the brakes applied. People that like the America we grew up in, applaud.

    Yes, nominating a blogger three years out of law school to be a judge is definitely reshaping our judiciary.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."
    - Eugene V. Debs (1855-1926), American labor leader

    Appointing judges who actually FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION how it is written instead of using the bench illegally write their OWN LAWS, to suit their SOCIAL AGENDA, is hardly "damage", except to the anti-American, perpetual victim left....and it can't happen soon enough to suit the overwhelming majority of LEGAL VOTING AMERICAN CITIZENS....

    His Constitutional knowledge and views are WHAT MATTERS on the Federal bench, and he is more than qualified for that.
