Trump is going to give the conservatives
a very big advantage in Federal Court.
Well he is tactical, as well as strategic.

Yeah I know wikipedia but,



en.wikipedia.org...



There are currently 64 nominations to Article III courts awaiting Senate action,
including 5 for the Courts of Appeals,
57 for the District Courts, and
2 for the Court of International Trade.[3]
There are currently 8 vacancies on the U.S. Courts of Appeals,
129 vacancies on the U.S. District Courts,
4 vacancies on the U.S. Court of International Trade,[3] and
14 announced federal judicial vacancies that will occur before
the end of Trump's first term
(1 for the Courts of Appeals and 13 for District Courts).[4]
Trump has not made any recess appointments to the federal courts.


That is still a lot of vacancies...



This one is from Time, and I know what your going to say, but?




time.com...



President Trump likes to tout his appointment of Neil Gorsuch
to the Supreme Court as one of his main accomplishments in
his first year in office. But he broke an important record
Thursday that proves he also stands to have a major effect
on lower courts.
As of Thursday, Trump set a record for the most ever federal
appeals judges confirmed during the first year of a
presidency, Axios reports. Trump has successfully appointed 12
so far; President Barack Obama confirmed just three in his first
year, and President George W. Bush confirmed six. He beat out
presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy, who each confirmed 11.


Man. Trump makes these other Presidents seem like pansies when it comes to
appointing Judges. I wonder why? lol
That was an article from Dec 5, 2017.

So how is Trump going to get all these judges appointed?

I thought you would never ask.





www.msn.com... partanntp



Analysis: The Republican Senate went nuclear again to speed up confirming
conservative judges.





The Senate this week took another step toward majority rule and away from the old model of affording all senators, regardless of party, the right to speak and even block actions they oppose. Exploiting a parliamentary routine dubbed the “nuclear option,” all but two Senate Republicans voted against 46 Democrats to limit floor debate after the vote that brings the initial discussion of a nomination to a close.




The old rule allowed up to 30 hours of such “post-cloture” debate before a final vote on whether to confirm a president’s appointee. The new routine reduces that time to two hours, and it applies to the consideration of most executive branch and all district court nominees.


He gets the Senate to help him. lol. I think this should allow people to understand
why Trump wanted the Senate more than the House.
It seems as if he is setting up a system where he can guarantee
that Payback is coming. And that is why they say that Trump hits back.

We're going to crush decades of progressive abuse of the constitution.

We're going to take all of their power.

They don't deserve it.

Can you imagine the liberal reaction when President Trump wins a second term, and will almost assuredly have at least one, and likely two more SCOTUS appointments?

It's going to be insanely hilarious.

It is like the Democrats can't comprehend what is happening to their party. Their so focused with their hate for Trump. It is almost as if they have never learned about a boxing match. If your opponent gets angry, they lose a lot of focus.

To me it seems like he can't lose, but I am reminded of the last election. Confidence can cause one to underestimate their opponent greatly.

I never say never, but the democratic party seems to be oblivious to mainstream America.

I can only assume they are living in the echo chamber of CNN, and MSNBC.

That is a valid point. With 90% of the MSM hostile toward Trump, it is only reasonable that the sheep follow.

Only an advantage for conservatives if you assume that these judges will be party over country types , and you like that kind of thing.
If they are country before party that's how we all win and no one gets an advantage.

Another thing I wonder when people talk about appointing judges as a big deal is this, Don't all presidents get to appoint judges?
And if so wont the next dem potus just switch it all up?

They appoint vacancies that are a lot of the time for life .

Unless the next President attempts to impeach them all (only a handful of judges have been impeached the last few hundred years) then the next 4-5 Presidents are stuck with them.

And technically voting Origionalist judges would be putting in people that put country before party.

Not liberal types that don't really care about the rule of law and have no problem legislating from the bench.

The 9th District court of appeals comes to mind... three liberal judges that have the highest rate of being overturned by the Supreme court.

Any judges that follow the Constitution are an advantage for the American People and the enemies of liberals. Liberals have no respect for the Bill of Rights or the Constitution. I don't care about Republican or Democrat only the Constitution and personal liberty.

My father is one.

Boy is he lonely politically.

And voting for Trump next time around because he feels the Democratic party is now batsnip crazy.

We do need more actual liberals... less Progressives.

I don't think conservatives look at it as party over country. It is more about belief in the Constitution, rule of law, and not being "activists" on the bench.

That is not a party thing, it is an America thing.

The democratic party has been taken over by seditious elements with a lot of money.

Whoever it is that has such power over them did so by appealing to their sense of collectivism and political malleability with regard to what they think is progressivism. They are amenable to socialism because they are too stupid to know that it isn't just a bunch of government services and they think they can make taxation a form of charity in this environment.

Exactly. I'm sick of Progressivism. It was a horrible mistake in the early 20th century and it is a horrible mistake now.

Progressivism is cancer.

Party over country? I think your reading more in my words than are actually there. With how politics is right now, it seems that the conservatives are the only one's who care about this Country, at least more than opposing party. The Democrat leadership have completely gone off the rails. So I believe that this is the best thing for this country.

No.

Don't make it out like Trump is some raging, hardcore conservative. He is not. He is a pragmatist, that would prefer negotiated solutions, amiable to everyone.

Unfortunately, while this is a perfectly acceptable position to the average working Joe, or Josephine, it puts other polititians on the spot, and they fight him every step of the way.

They have crumbled right before our eyes. They cannot seem to agree with each other any longer, much less the rest of the country.

I never said he was. He's actually more of a real Liberal on most of his social stances. Fiscally conservative though.

Which also used to be a Liberal thing before Democrats became the Progressive party.

In a sense he's like Reagan.

"I never left the Democratic Party. They left me."
