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.

Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

Figures. The guy hates answering questions because he has nothing to say!

If President Trump did anything remotely close to what Biden is doing regarding limiting the press’ access to him, he would’ve been impeached a third time. Must be nice to have the mainstream media on your side! From New York Post: WASHINGTON — The White House is imposing a new $170 COVID-19 testing fee on reporters who want to access the West Wing, in what critics say is the latest step that constrains press coverage of President Biden. The Biden administration already imposed sweeping restrictions, including capping at 80 the number of pre-approved journalists who are able to access White House grounds on a given day — each of whom must take a COVID-19 rapid test before 1 p.m. CONTINUED: Under former President Donald Trump, any reporter with a “hard pass” was able to breeze past the White House gates at any time and without taking a coronavirus test. But few abused the privilege due to peer pressure to limit visits. The latest restrictions were announced in an on-the-record email from White House Correspondents’ Association President Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for The Associated Press.

Anybody who believes that police officers are doing anything other than keeping our streets safe and arresting criminals is completely delusional. All you have to do, you know, if you don’t want to be shot by a cop, is cooperate with instructions. Why is that such a difficult concept for liberals to understand? From The Daily Wire: Los Angeles County’s new top prosecutor has made another controversial move that has angered local law enforcement unions. According to FOX 11, “Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is under scrutiny after he hired a public defender who helped with his campaign to a high-ranking prosecutor position in his administration.” The outlet reports that Tiffany Blacknell “has in the past posted anti-police comments on social media,” which first surfaced last year. CONTINUED: Investigative reporter Bill Melugin posted screenshots of Ms. Blacknell’s previous comments disparaging law enforcement to Twitter earlier this week. Blacknell has referred to LAPD officers as “barbarians” and called for the abolition of prisons. Melugin also shared a photograph of Blacknell posing with D.A. Gascón and another showing Blacknell donning a t-shirt that read, “The Police Are Trained To Kill Us.” According to Melugin, “the former public defender posted on Facebook during the series of looting[s] that took place in May 2020 that she herself was a looter during the 1992 Rodney King riots.” https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1364787696418217988?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1364787696418217988%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us https://twitter.com/NiggaTheory/status/1306977001857638400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306977001857638400%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us
