Less we forget, having a staunch Republican and strong believer in the United States Constitution, as written, President Donald J. Trump gets to pick his judges.
Typically this happens with a great deal of whining, screaming and kicking from the morons on the left.
Trump flips New York-based appeals court as Steven Menashi confirmed.
Yea, Spanky wait for the gavel indeed!
With the confirmation of White House attorney Steven Menashi to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, another federal appeals court has a majority of Republican-appointed judges.
Would we expect anything different from this leftist dowager?
How about saying instead of reading it if her comments were to be taken seriously?
The left is still up in arms because Republicans refused the nomination of Justice Merrick Garland who Obama tried to put on the bench when congress was not in session.
This, of course, was one of the many illegal acts Obama tried to slip be the people and the United States Constitution.
To them I say, listen to the music below, play it daily until you resign.
It was McConnell who seized the moment after the death of Scalia last February to announce there would be no confirmation hearings until after the election.
“The next justice could fundamentally alter the direction of the Supreme Court and have a profound impact on our country,” he said at the time.
There’s no way of knowing if McConnell was certain a Republican would win.
But it was worth a shot for the veteran senator.
He held to his promise and denied Obama’s pick, federal appeals court Judge Merrick Garland, a hearing or vote. And now, he has likely ensured a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for years to come.
Menashi, whose nomination was vehemently opposed by Democrats and civil rights groups, was confirmed by the Senate, 51-41.
It’s time to play the music for Collins……”Another One Bites The Dust. Here
Here’s another one for her with Dandy Don Meridith singing to her.
Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins joined Democrats in opposing the 40-year-old’s nomination.
Maine’s senior Senator Susan Collins (R) was once a beloved myth-maker in her home state and beyond; an electoral powerhouse and one of the last vestiges of that elusive–and largely media-enabled-and-created–phenomenon known as the “moderate Republican.”
A new poll, however, suggests that Collins has reached the twilight of her career due in large part to her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court — despite allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh and despite Collins’s pledge to not vote for a nominee who demonstrated “hostility” to Roe v. Wade.
Collins has said that when she spoke with Kavanaugh they talked “at great length about precedent and the application of stare decisis.” According to Collins, Kavanaugh said he “agreed with what Justice Roberts said at his nomination hearing, in which he said that [Roe] was settled law.”
Public Policy Polling (PPP) released data on Tuesday showing that only 35 percent of Pine Tree State voters currently approve of the job Collins is doing in the Senate while 50 percent of voters disapprove.
The 2nd Circuit now has seven judges tapped by Republican presidents and six named by Democrats.
The 2nd Circuit is the second federal appeals court Trump has remade to have a majority of judges appointed by GOP presidents.
In March, the president flipped the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals with the confirmation of Paul Matey.
Trump is also close to shifting the balance of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to majority Republican-appointed judges, with the Senate expected to vote on the nominations of Robert Luck and Barbara Lagoa in the coming days.
He has also brought the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, considered to be the country’s most liberal, closer to parity.
Senate Democrats took issue with Menashi’s past writings and unwillingness to answer questions about his work in the White House Counsel’s Office, including his role in developing the Trump administration’s immigration policies, specifically family separations.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, called Menashi “one of the most contemptible nominees to come before the Senate” during his tenure and a “disgrace to the seat once held by the great Thurgood Marshall.”
But Republicans and conservative judicial groups accused Democrats of running a smear campaign against Menashi.
Trump, with the assistance of the GOP-controlled Senate, has seen tremendous success with remarking the federal courts since taking office. He has appointed more than 150 judges to the federal bench, including two Supreme Court justices and 46 appeals court judges.
Many of Trump’s appointees are in their 40s and 50s, ensuring they will serve for decades to come.
