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.

Bernie Sanders Works Hard For Immigrant Vote, Says He’l Stop Deportations If He Wins White House

This guy is wacky.

Published

Sen. Bernie Sanders is in full campaign mode, and given his extreme, socialist bent, he’s doing what any good Democratic candidate would do in his position, which pander his pants off. Who is Sanders dedicating his time to sucking up to? The illegal immigrant vote of course. The socialist has stated that if he should win the White House, he fully plans on imposing a moratorium on all deportations, which is sure to win him major points with Democrat voters and those residing in the country illegally. via TheBlaze: Sanders was speaking at an event hosted by the progressive Latino group Mijente in Las Vegas when he unveiled this new immigration proposal. “We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.” https://youtu.be/_3uQw6AahII https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1173326838602641408 The proposal presents a clear trajectory of where illegal immigration policy would go under a Sanders administration. If you choose to stop deporting illegal immigrants, the next step down would be to detain them when they are found living in the U.S. illegally. But since detention facilities are already overwhelmed, resulting in poor conditions at some locations, indefinite detention during this deportation moratorium would not be a viable option. So, the only other choice would be to release them — or not seek to find and arrest illegal immigrants at all. Folks just do not seem to understand the threat that illegal immigrants pose to our nation, both in regards to physical safety and economic security. The vast majority of individuals who cross the border illegally end up on welfare programs like…

New Report From CBS Claims Multiple ISIS Fighters In Kurdish Prison Say They’re American And Want To Come Home

The Kurds can gladly keep them.

A CBS reporter recently visited a Syrian prison that was chock full of deplorable, disgusting members of radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which obviously wasn’t much of a story, but what else she found there is making headlines all across the country, and for good reason. Apparently, several of the prisoners she encountered claimed to be ISIS members from America who want to come back home. Yeah, don’t mean to burst your bubbles, guys, but that’s a no from us over here. via TheBlaze: When he was questioned by CBS News foreign correspondent Holly Williams, prisoner and accused ISIS fighter Lirim Sylejmani told her he was from Chicago. “The choices that I made, in somebody’s eyes, the wrong choices, so I face jail time,” he told Williams. He also said that he “just wanted to live under Islamic law” and did not think he had done anything wrong. He added that he wanted to return to the United States, even though he knew that he would likely be put in prison there as well. In another case, a 7-year-old prisoner who claimed to be from New York City told Williams that he had been brought to join ISIS by his parents. A seven-year-old child? Seriously? Many of you reading this have a kid this age in your home. Think about that sweet, young boy or girl being a member of a radical terrorist group, so full of hate, anger, and violence they would be willing to murder others. That’s the kind of monsters that belong to ISIS. The kind who take away a child’s innocence and brainwash them into becoming soldiers in a war that is about nothing more than world domination and spilling blood. It’s so tragic. However, no one should be allowed back over here. Period. Once you’ve…
