As if there were some big surprise about it, a Washington Post article recently examined the impact of the number of court vacancies Trump will inherit. Apparently this is something shocking. The Christmas Day article explains that when the President-Elect assumes office in little more than three weeks, he has the remarkable ability to “reshape” the judiciary—A situation that some journalists seem to have just realized.
When the Obama transition took place, he only had 54 openings in play to begin his radical alteration of the concept of justice in our republic. Trump will have almost double that amount.
Fortunately, Obama’s agenda was thwarted by a shift in the control of the Senate.
“…Obama’s judicial nominees slowed to a crawl after Republicans took control of the Senate in 2015. Obama White House officials blame Senate Republicans for what they characterize as an unprecedented level of obstruction in blocking the Democratic president’s court picks.”
Here’s a shocker: Republicans took control of the Senate in 2015 because the American people were sick and tired of Obama’s activist agenda being carried out in the court system (among his many other offences).
A 2014 article in the New Yorker entitled, “How Obama Transformed the Federal Judiciary” explores his influence over the justice system in our country. Basically, he used the claim of diversity as a means for instating radically liberal federal court judges. And although loser democrats have bemoaned the stalling of judicial appointments since 2015, the election results clearly state that voter intentions remain steady.
We don’t want that kind of idiocy, corruption, and hatred ruling our courts.
In fact, that was one of the primary reasons many citizens elected Donald Trump. I couldn’t be more thrilled that he has the chance to undo some of the deliberate destruction that has been perpetrated on our nation over the past 8 years.
Fortunately, this swing comes at a time when it is the most needed. For our republic to remain, certain concepts must be rejected, criticisms must be made about specific actions, and ideologies that are not compatible with civilized society must not be protected (Read: ISIS, Hamas, BLM, and other murderous organizations).
Terror attacks, refugee crimes, and things that are WRONG must be identified as such, and punished. We can’t continue to welcome sworn enemies into our country, whose sole desire is our ultimate destruction.
No one who fundamentally believes that someone else’s beliefs make them subject to death should be allowed to immigrate here. How is that ideology simpatico with educated nations?
I am extremely grateful that Obama will no longer have the ability to shape of country’s courts. In his horrific egotism, he cannot understand that we are sick of his policies, his lying, and his “character.” The recent treachery of his administration towards Israeli settlements is just another asshole act in a long line of calculated decisions designed to weaken our country and destroy anything that is honorable, noble, or righteous.
I Thank God that Trump has the appointment of over 100 judges, and that he has a republican congress to support his selections. This has such a long term influence on our lives and rights that I feel like our republic still may have a chance. And this is what elitists don’t understand.
We’re not stupid, we’re thankful…and unlike Michelle, actually do have hope for the first time in a long time because we believe that law and order will be restored.
