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.

Trump Wants Senate Trial, Calls For Schiff And Whistleblower To Be Impeachment Witnesses

Published

on

President Trump called into “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning where he made a call for a Senate impeachment trial and for said he wants House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and the whistleblower — along with others — to be called as witnesses. Here’s more from Fox News: “There’s nothing there,” Trump declared, claiming “there should never be an impeachment” and he “doesn’t know” the majority of the witnesses. But following a meeting with senators a day earlier, the president announced on the show that if the House impeaches, “Frankly, I want a trial.” He stressed that Senate trial would provide the opportunity to call other witnesses — including Hunter Biden, whose dealings in Ukraine were at the heart of what he wanted investigated out of Kiev, and especially Schiff. “There’s only one person I want more than ‘Where’s Hunter?’ and that is Adam Schiff,” Trump said. Trump blasted Schiff’s dramatic reading of the transcribed phone call he had with Ukraine’s president and then challenged his claim to not know the identity of the whistleblower, saying, “I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower.” The president also stated that he wants to hear from the “fake whistleblower. He went on to say that “everybody” knows the individual’s identity already. Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

Kanye West Held Worship Service For Prison Inmates, Atheist Group Argues It Violated Constitution

Published

on

Popular rap artist and born again Christian Kanye West recently held a surprise worship service in a county jail a week ago to share the hope of the gospel with those who are oh so desperate for the hope it provides. However, this gesture of good will did not seem to go over well with atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation. The group sent a letter to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez on Monday stating that a “church service” like the one West held in the jail should never happen again and that it violated the Constitution. Here’s more from TheBlaze: “It is our understanding that Harris County Sheriff officials organized two concerts for inmates and staff on Friday, November 15,” the letter recalls. “Kanye West and his choir performed songs from West’s recent religious album, ‘Jesus Is King,’ and the performances were ‘really more like a church service,’ a sentiment you explicitly and publicly admitted. Photos suggest this is true, too.” The “photos” in reference show one tweet by Sheriff Gonzalez saying, “[Kanye West] and his choir brought some light and #churchservice to people who needed it today at the Harris County Jail,” and another recalling West’s words to inmates that “this is a mission, not a show.” “In short, this was unconstitutional,” the atheist group’s letter said, arguing that the inmates didn’t really have a choice — “nobody believes there is a genuine choice between sitting in a cramped, locked cell, and listening to a two-hour long concert.” “This constitutional violation is particularly egregious because it imposed religion on inmates — literally a captive audience — who have a deep and immediate interest in being seen favorably by [Sheriff Gonzalez] and [his] staff.” “It is no excuse that Kayne West is famous,” the letter reads. Jason Spencer, a spokesman for…
