Trump Flips Control of Fed. Appeals Court, THIS is Why it Was Worth Voting for Him

With the courts turning wildly political as of late, the President’s move will bring the Constitution back to the forefront.

Donald Trump has succeeded in doing something no president has done for decades by flipping the ideology of the First Federal Appeals Court to the center right with his appointments of new judges.

One of the most corrupt areas of public policy has been in the fact that most courts in the nation have been filled with reliable left-wingers who don’t care about the law or the Constitution and to whom liberals can run to overturn laws or push cases to their leftist ideological agenda. It is communism by stealth — often called “lawfare” — that the left has successfully imposed on America for decades.

But Trump has done a miraculous job of putting center right judges on various courts throughout the land blunting the power of liberals that have had a lock on the courts for almost 90 years.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first president to fully realize how useful it was to get far leftists on the bench and he started a move that nearly every president (including many “Republican” presidents) continued by putting liberals on the bench.

But at long last we have a president (and a Senate, which deserves credit) willing to make an effort to change the flavor of the courts back to being a Constitution-centric force.

If you voted for Donald Trump you have been vindicated by his effort to return the courts to an American style of jurisprudence (as opposed to the European one Roosevelt started by putting activist left-wingers on the bench).

Donald Trump has been the most important and successful president in U.S. history by nudging the courts back to the right.

So back to my first sentence up there — On Tuesday the U.S. Senate approved the appointment of Paul Matey to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, flipping the court from majority left to majority right.

The Senate confirmed Matey by a vote of 54-46 with only one Democrat crossing the aisle. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was the sole Democrat to join all Republicans in supporting the nomination.

As USA Today reported yesterday:

Senate confirmation of Paul Matey to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, with jurisdiction over Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, gave Trump and his GOP predecessors in the White House a 7-6 majority there. …

Matey, 48, a former top counsel to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, became Trump’s 35th appeals court nominee to reach the bench with seven more pending, continuing a record pace. The Senate also has confirmed 53 of Trump’s picks for federal district courts, with another 54 nominees pending.

Trump has put more right-leaning judges on the bench than any president in recent history. He also outpaced other presidents this early in his presidency.

But he still has a ways to go to knock out Obama’s baleful influence on our justice system. Obama put 329 judges in various positions across the nation (only a few less than George W. and Bill Clinton appointed).

In any case, we need to remember this when we are voting in 2020. Never Trumpers must be utterly destroyed and made politically toxic so that we can get Donald Trump re-elected to continue his trend of putting center right judges on the bench. The more he is able to seat, the better it will be for America.

This is probably one of the most important things Trump is doing in office.

Democrat Governor Frees 8,000 Inmates Over COVID-19, But Bans Singing In Churches

Priorities?

Once again, the Golden State continues to lead the nation in crazy. Thanks to radically far-left Governor Gavin Newsom, 8,000 prisoners will be freed due to spikes in coronavirus – which most likely stem from increased testing and Black Lives Matter riots, where police officers are treated like animals. Newsom has no problem banning singing in church, though. From KPIX 5: The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) on Friday said it estimates 8,000 currently incarcerated persons could be eligible for release by end of August under release authority granted to the CDCR Secretary allowing alternative confinement or release in any case in which an emergency endangering the lives of incarcerated persons has occurred or is imminent. The 8,000 inmates to be released are in addition to the state’s reduction of about 10,000 inmates since the start of the pandemic. Jay Jordan, the executive director of Californians for Safety and Justice, noted: “We’re glad the Governor is taking action to release more people. This is absolutely critical for the health and safety of every Californian. Too many people are incarcerated for too long in facilities that spread poor health. Supporting the health and safety of all Californians means releasing people unnecessarily incarcerated and transforming our justice system.” Regarding church, via Fox News: Faith leaders are speaking out after California Gov. Gavin Newsom banned singing and chanting in houses of worship last week due to a surge in coronavirus cases following weeks of protests. “Places of worship must, therefore, discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25 percent of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower,” the new guidelines read as state health officials recommend churches have members sing online from their homes. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…

Roger Stone Will Not Serve Prison Time, Has Sentence Commuted By POTUS Trump

Freedom!

Liberals are going to have a field day with this one. Then again, they generally go bananas for anything and everything “Trump,” so this will just be more gas on the fire. As of late Friday evening, longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone learned that he won’t be serving time in the big house. From Fox News: Tucker Carlson lauded President Trump’s commutation of longtime Republican political consultant Roger Stone’s prison sentence Friday, saying the 67-year-old had been the victim of a “nakedly political” set-up aimed to put him away for the rest of his “useful and expected life.” Stone was to report to prison Tuesday on charges of witness tampering and making false statements in connection to the Mueller investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Carlson said, “His arrest and his trial were nakedly political. It was a set-up. The presiding judge, a political activist called Amy Berman Jackson, issued a gag order that prohibited Stone from defending himself in public or making a living. She bankrupted him as a result.” Here’s the letter from the White House: California Congressman Eric Swalwell’s (D) 2020 presidential campaign lasted a solid five minutes. Even he probably knew he didn’t stand a chance. But that hasn’t stopped the radically far-left liberal from saying some very, very silly things. Swalwell knows the lines he’s supposed to parrot and does it well – or, at least, well enough. He’s just not the most likable of characters. In February, the Democrat suggested a new plan his peers might hatch in order to take down the duly-elected president of the United States.
