This reporter supported Donald Trump from the minute he rolled down that elevator… for two very compelling reasons.
- The media, the republicans, and the democrats all hated him, leading me to correctly assume he wasn’t a ‘team player.’
- The judiciary—most especially, the Supreme Court.
If Donald Trump hadn’t been elected, I have absolutely no doubt that by this time, Hillary would have appointed Ginsburg clones and liberals would have brought countless Second Amendment cases before the liberal court, effectively eliminating the right to bear arms.
All that notwithstanding, President Trump has accomplished even more than I hoped for… especially in the judiciary.
Because let’s face it: If conservative judges are removed from the land, all of our freedoms will be removed.
So, while democrats are busy attacking each other, making fake racism claims, and generally acting like the lying, disgusting slave-holders they are… the Senate has been steadily confirming Trump appointed judges.
The Daily Caller reported:
The Senate confirmed 13 judges President Donald Trump chose while America had its eyes on the Democratic primary debates Tuesday and Wednesday.
Speaking of the judiciary:
Two nights of debates, zero questions about the Supreme Court.

“For too long, fairly uncontroversial judicial nominees just like these have been held up and delayed by our Democratic colleagues even when the vacancy qualifies as a judicial emergency,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said during a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday, The Hill reported.
“Uncontroversial district judges used to be confirmed promptly in big groups by voice vote,” he continued.
Confirmations include the following district court nominees:
Karin Immergut for the District of Oregon, John Milton Younge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mary M. Rowland for the Northern District of Illinois, Mark Pittman to the Northern District of Texas, Jeffrey Brown to the Southern District of Texas, Brantley Starr to the Northern District of Texas, Martha Pacold to the Northern District of Illinois, Jason Pulliam to the Western District of Texas, William Stickman IV to be the Western District of Pennsylvania, Michael T. Liburdi for the District of Arizona, Peter D. Welte for the District of North Dakota, James Wesley Hendrix for the Northern District of Texas and Sean D. Jordan for the Eastern District of Texas.
Republicans have confirmed more than 100 Trump court picks since 2017, including Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, as well as a record number of appeals court judges.
Trump accused Democrats of obstructing his nominees earlier in 2019.
“Democrats in the Senate are still slow walking hundreds of highly qualified people wanting to come into government,” the president said in a February tweet. “Never been such an abuse in our country’s history.”
Sections of the 2019 book “Justice on Trial” by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino reveal how 2016 Trump campaign lawyers consulted with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy in an effort to build a list of prospective Supreme Court nominees ahead of Trump’s election.
Every political decision that is made impacts the courts… and the courts are the only barrier left between democrats’ plan for a slave-Venezuela-state and the framers original intent.
