Trump triumphs with federal judicial appointments

Pres. Trump’s 17th wave of judicial nominees

Senate Democrats, who use any excuse to put roadblocks in the way of President Trump, have shown an unusual willingness to back off their partisan agenda — when it benefits them.

In their rush to get out of town and campaign for reelection in their home states, they agreed to expedite votes on 15 of the president’s most recent nominees to federal courts.  The senate is now out of session until Sept. 4.

In a rare display of bipartisanship, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) agreed to work with Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), bypassing wait times on federal judicial nominations that would delay the confirmation process.

Among the judges is Bridget Shelton Bade, who currently serves as a United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Arizona. Judge Bade has deep roots in Arizona, having earned her J.D., cum laude, from ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Her extensive background includes time in private practice and with both the Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The best news is, Judge Bade has been nominated to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has the dubious distinction of being the most reversed federal court of appeals,* due to its overabundance of liberal judges.

To date, during President Trump’s tenure, the senate has confirmed one Supreme Court justice — Neil Gorsuch, 26 circuit court judges and 26 district court judges — a record number for any president at this point in their term.

    Donald Trump is not a conventional president, but he has shown himself to be a conservative one. His judicial appointments are excellent, and he presses to get them through. God Bless him for focusing on this critical aspect of our country’s well being.

  2. Frankly Speaking says:

    Justice Gorsuch was a triumph that will define Trump’s presdiency for decades to come. Let’s hope he has more opportunities to appoint true constitutionalists to the US Supreme Court.

    The linked article by law professor Derek T. Muller was a good read. Thanks for including that in this post.

    Off topic, but I tried to watch Fox News on and off this morning and there is nothing beside the canonization of John McCain. Much of what was reported was false. As an example, Trace Gallagher gave a glowing rundown of McCain’s openness with constituents, scheduling town hall meetings across the state when he was running. That is patently untrue. At the few he had he was confronted with angry constituents who wanted answers to his desire to send our troops into Syria or why he put amnesty for illegals above them. He finally held “by invitation only” events. Some of them were in Flake’s East Valley territory and including Flake, which he thought would give him cover.

      Let this sink in.

      It was decided by the WH that his activities, world-wide, have been so destructive that “much of it will be buried” with him.
      The world would Hate US if they knew.

      Did you see that they amost dropped the casket yesterday outside the AZ Cap? Yep.
      Because, you know, a RINO is a very heavy creature.

      Meanwhile,
      Seems Uncle Joe Joe Biden gave US a gift back in 1995, at the behest of Bill Clinton, that will now bite them in the ass.

      Review President Trump’s E.O.s (whitehouse.gov)
      And the OMNIBUS budget from last year.
      The plan.

      Oh, yeah, panic in the swamp.

        What immediately jumped out at me is that in 1995, when this bill was proposed, liberal gaffe master Joe Biden used the now profane (among Democrats) word, “aliens.”

        In pre-political correctness 1995, before the speech police took over, alien was not a gaffe. It was a fact.

  5. East Valley PC says:

    John McCain has become the latest “God” of the left. His death has rated more coverage from the liberal media than that of presidents.

    I am thoroughly disgusted with the endless embrace of this vulgar and wretched individual who was more enamored with himself than anyone I’ve ever seen. He wasn’t even that smart as we’ve seen by countless examples of his pomposity minus facts.

    I liked when he introduced Mitt Romney and called him President Obama. That was classic McCain. He rarely knew what he was talking about but that never caused him to stop talking.

    NOW, ANOTHER BLACK EYE FOR ARIZONA:
    Threatening ICE agents

    “Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) fired a warning shot to ICE officers early on Thursday warning “you will not be safe” from prosecution post-Trump.

    Democrats are waging a war on ICE officers and calling for borders to be completely abolished.

    The unhinged Democrat (redundant, we know) actually accused ICE officers of deporting “Americans.”

    The hysteria began with a story out of the Washington Post wherein they reported the government is denying passports to Hispanics who have U.S. citizenship but are suspected of having fake birth certificates. This same policy was in place during the Bush and Obama years and have actually declined under Trump, but when have facts ever mattered to the left?. . . ”
