One of the most important aspects of the Trump era is the transformation of the courts and it looks like Trump is about to flip another appeals court to the center right.
For decades, left-wing presidents (and useless Republicans like George W. Bush) have been stuffing the courts with liberal judges and their subsequent left-wing rulings are gutting our culture and materially transforming our society.
But Trump has been doing an excellent job of putting far more conservative-leaning judges on the bench than any past president. This is why Senate Democrats have been desperate to stall Trump’s judicial nominees.
According to Daily Wire, Trump has done it again:
On Wednesday the Senate confirmed Joseph Bianco to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Another judge, Michael Park, is expected to be confirmed later this week. Bloomberg noted, “When Trump makes additional appointments for vacancies that will be left by two judges who recently announced their retirements, Dennis Jacobs and Christopher Droney, the 13-member court will be majority Republican-appointed.”
The nomination also once again revealed how Democrats lie.
In 2005, Sen. Democrat leader Chuck Schumer was a big supporter of Bianco.
“I am proud to support someone as outstandingly qualified and well respected as Mr. Bianco,” Schumer said back then.
Naturally, now Schumer suddenly thinks Bianco is “an extremist.”
Another day, another partisan push by Senate Republicans for hard-right nominees to get lifetime appointments on the federal bench. One day after Senate Republicans elevated to the Sixth Circuit an attorney who proclaimed pre-existing condition protections are unconstitutional, Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans voted to advance the nominations of Michael Park and Joseph Bianco for the Second Circuit, despite objections from Senator Gillibrand and me.
Schumer is a partisan liar. Period.
But Democrats know that more conservative judges means they can’t get their extra, left-wing agenda passed by activist judges and without bothering to write laws.
Along with the elevation of Judge Bianco, Trump has also passed the 100-judge milestone.
Lat last week, Trump surprassed his 100th judge confirmed to the bench.
