While You Were Focused On Impeachment, Trump Continued To Transform The Federal Judiciary

This seismic shift in the composition of the federal judiciary is getting almost no current mainstream media coverage because all the oxygen is being taken up with Democratsí impeachment efforts.

Excerpt:

Maybe this should be a series.

No matter what the current news cycle obsession, Trump judicial nominees continue to be confirmed and Trump continues to transform the federal judiciary.


And it continues with the media obsessed on Ukraine and Impeachment.

Carrie Severino has the latest action and numbers:

Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee held nomination hearings on two of President Trumpís nominees to the Ninth Circuit, Lawrence VanDyke and Patrick Bumatay. The Ninth Circuit continues to be transformed: Assuming VanDyke and Bumatay are confirmed, President Trump will have appointed 13 of the 29 active judges on that court.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has filed for cloture (to end debate) on five more of President Trumpís judicial nominees, including Danielle Hunsaker and William Nardini, both nominated to the Second Circuit. This procedural move by McConnell sets up confirmation for all five nominees later this week or next.

Current and known future vacancies: 122

Courts of Appeals: 9

District/Specialty Courts*: 113

Pending nominees for current and known future vacancies: 55

Courts of Appeals: 8

District/Specialty Courts*: 47

* * *

Nominees Confirmed by the Senate since Inauguration Day: 159

Supreme Court: 2

Courts of Appeals: 43

District/Specialty Courts*: 114

This has implications beyond total numbers, Trump is flipping or is on the verge of flipping Circuits:

Hopefully they don't let anything, even impeachment proceedings, slow them down when it comes to filling these vacancies.

Trump mentioned in one of his recent rallies how Obama had left him with 140 open judicial judge positions he's been filling. St. Barack the Magnificent must have been too busy with more important stuff, like trying to influence overseas elections and over-running the country with new Democrat voters from Central America...

That was not it. Obama was dealing with a Republican Senate that would not take up or confirm his nominees in the last two years while in office. Also, prior to I believe 2012, the filibuster rule was still in place. it was only when Reid nuked that rule for lower judges that Obama was able to really get many appointments through, and he only had a short window. Trump is the first president who has a senate with a majority not bound by filibuster ability to keep appointments from going through. he also killed the green sheet rule, which was a gentleman's agreement that no judge could be approved without the senators from that judges state sending in a green sheet approving the nomination. The rules changed to allow trump to do this, and in ten years, the rule change could bite conservatives in the ass. But for a while, it will be fun riding the conservative judge wave.

Good point. Things like this can backfire later. Of course, right now it looks like unless Americans suddenly start desiring socialism (outside of big cities where many insane leftists live) the Senate should be safe (and thus the judge positions to a fair extent).

I would be happy if Republicans retained control of the Senate in 2020.

I think it is possible to retake the House.

Which would be a huge blow to the Socialist / SJW / AOC leftist path the Democrats have been favoring.

Yes, it started when Dingy Harry nuked the filibuster rule. He has even said that he regrets doing so. Then again, Hillary? was supposed to be coronated and "progress" would have continued unabated.

As for the "blue slip rule", I had never heard of it. You say "gentlemen's agreement". I say what a bs "House rule". The kind that effectively changes an elected representative into an aristocratic kingmaker. The blue slip rule is an example of that one little known Establishment trick why the electorate voted for Trump / against Hillary?.
