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.

judicial system

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.

WATCH: Biden Tells Crowd That Trump’s Strong Economy Is All Because of Obama – & HIM

Joe’s doing stand-up comedy, now?

Joe Biden is quite the card, even after all these years. Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack Obama are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes. Check this out… WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Pitiful, Joe. Just pitiful. Late Senator John McCain (AZ) is a war hero who served his country with honor for the vast majority of his life. By refusing to leave his fellow soldiers behind during the Vietnam war and enduring endless amounts of torture, McCain put his true character on display. While it is evident that McCain swung violently left on certain issues (even refusing to repeal Obamacare shortly after Donald Trump became president), every American owes him a debt of gratitude. Let’s be honest: Trump was entirely wrong when he said of McCain in 2015, “I like people who weren’t captured.” That was pretty bad. McCain and Trump never saw eye-to-eye, prompting the senator’s outspoken daughter, Meghan, to constantly attack POTUS in defense of her father. Now, it looks like the McCain family will support former Biden over Trump come 2020. From Washington Examiner: The late Sen. John McCain’s family plans to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid, backing the Democrat not only in his party’s crowded primary race but also in a general election matchup with President Trump, the Washington Examiner has learned. In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him…

WATCH: Bernie Proves He Doesn’t Have A Clue, Compares Teacher Salaries to Baseball Contracts

IS THIS REAL LIFE? It can’t be…

Okay, even for radically far-left Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders this one is a doozy. According to the 2020 presidential candidate, teachers can be paid as much as Major League Baseball players. Or something like that. Check this out… Self-confessed socialist candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, recently ripped pro-baseball because its players make more than teachers. But to many Americans, it looks like Bernie lacks any understanding about the economics of the matter. He tweeted: If we are a nation that can pay baseball players hundreds of millions of dollars, don’t tell me we can’t afford to pay teachers the salaries they deserve. https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1129791583220588546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129791583220588546&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Just in case you don’t see the problem here, check out these reactions: Did I miss something or has the government started paying the baseball players, or is it still private entities? He is as dumb as his minions who are not bright enough to think for themselves. https://twitter.com/KevinKlynch41/status/1129949064265703425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129949064265703425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F As someone that covers sports business, let me say that Bernie is woefully off here on why the difference. As sad a commentary as this is, baseball is entertainment. It’s why there are multi-billion TV deals and 70M+ attend games in person. I thought Bernie understood economics. https://twitter.com/BizballMaury/status/1129840709320626176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129840709320626176&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F There are 750 Major League Baseball players. In the world. 70 million fans voluntarily paid to watch MLB players perform in 2018. This is an apples and asteroids argument. https://twitter.com/RyanSchuiling/status/1129968264879017985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129968264879017985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F I think teachers should be paid more, but you do understand players are only paid well because people are paying to go see them… right? I’m not gonna drop $80 to go see a 3rd grade teacher for 3hrs. https://twitter.com/FauxDucky/status/1130139959346782208?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130139959346782208&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Baseball players are paid in the private sector, teachers are predominantly government employees. Perhaps we should privatize education and make it competitive so there is demand for exceptional teachers and…
