Few presidents know better than Donald Trump how the courts – eaten up by liberal activist judges – can wreak havoc on the rule of law in this country. While every Republican president has had to deal with unfair, biased decisions from the nation’s federal judiciary from time to time, only Trump has seen one terrible ruling after another directed at his administration. Many of these rulings cannot be defended by any legal expert, much less anyone who thinks the Constitution should be a court’s guiding light. They are manifestly unhinged from any form of U.S. law and any sound legal theory. They are Tumblr-inspired, Resistance-guided rulings that show what a sorry state our courts are really in.
But maybe that’s going to soon change. On Tuesday, the White House announced the re-nomination of 51 nominees for vacant federal court positions in an effort to get the wheels of Congress moving once again on one of the most important aspects of the Trump agenda.
From Fox News:
Nine of the 51 appointments are for spots on prestigious and influential federal appellate benches, including two on the mostly liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which President Trump has often derided as “disgraceful” and politically biased.
Neomi Rao, the president’s “regulatory czar,” who would take now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s vacated seat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, is on the list. Case Western University School of Law professor and Washington Post commentator Jonathan H. Adler wrote when Rao first joined the administration that “Trump’s selection of Rao suggests the administration is serious about regulatory reform, not merely reducing high-profile regulatory burdens.”[…]
The White House, along with Senate GOP leaders, has made appointing conservative judges and justices a key priority. Under the Trump administration, 85 federal judges have been installed, including Associate Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and 30 appellate judges.
Read that last paragraph again and then marvel at the so-called NeverTrump conservatives who STILL, to this day, think we should kick this man out of the White House in favor of whatever random leftist the Democrats nominate in 2020. Truly, it’s madness. But we suppose it shows you exactly how much these idiots really cared about keeping this nation out of the hands of dangerous, socialist progressives. Enough to write scathing op-eds? Sure. Enough to endorse a an arrogant president with bad manners? Oh no, never.
Thank goodness the American people were wise enough to keep their own counsel.
