Somebody Call A Waahmbulance!

No hinges.

 

Jennifer Bendery of HuffPoop has teh butthurts.

Two and a half years in, what stands out about Trump’s confirmed judges isn’t just the quantity, which is remarkable ― two Supreme Court justices, a record-breaking 43 appeals court judges and 99 district court judges.

It’s that a chunk of his judges shouldn’t be on the bench at all because they aren’t qualified or they’re so ideologically extreme that it’s next to impossible to imagine them as fair arbiters of justice. These judges are now on federal courts at every level, from the Supreme Court to appeals courts, which have the final say in nearly all federal cases, down to district courts, where these cases are first filed. For the appeals court judges in particular, the decisions these people make will affect you and millions of other people for generations.

“It is important for the public to appreciate that appeals court appointees serve on courts that are the courts of last resort for 99.9% of cases in their regions of the U.S. on issues like capital punishment, abortion, same-sex marriage, immigration, etc.,” said Carl Tobias, a University of Richmond law professor and an expert on federal judicial nominations. “The key is they resolve 50,000 cases per year and the Supreme Court resolves 100.”

Here’s a snapshot of Trump’s most alarming judges to date. Incredibly, all but one (Wendy Vitter) is or was a member of the Federalist Society, a conservative lawyers’ group that has effectively been picking Trump’s judicial nominees for him. There is a clear theme to these judges, too: They have records of being anti-LGBTQ, anti-abortion and anti-voting rights.

Awwwwww, pobrecita. Elections have consequences.

The Left is pissed because they are the only ones who are allowed to pack the courts with extreme ideologues. How many times in the past two and a half years has an Obama or Clinton-appointed judge placed a nationwide injunction on the Trump administration? In one case a judge said that Trump could not use an executive order to rescind the DACA policy enacted by an Obama executive order.

The Left has a problem. Their ideas are unpopular and they only control one house of Congress. At times like these, they love the courts. They don’t just file lawsuits to block Trump from keeping his campaign promises, they want activist Leftist judges to “legislate from the bench.” That’s how they got abortion and SSM made legal.

But Trump and Cocaine Mitch are packing the courts with stinky rightwingers. Boo-fucking-hoo. It wasn’t the GOP who decided to weaponize our courts.

Here is what Bendery had to say about three of Trump’s nominees:

Brett Kavanaugh:

Kavanaugh repeatedly lied under oath in his Senate confirmation hearing and, alternating between crying, yelling and interrupting Senate committee members as they pressed him on credible sexual assault allegations against him, he blamed his rocky confirmation process on politics. Kavanaugh’s unhinged behavior raised fresh questions about his temperament to be a justice on the nation’s highest court. As Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) concluded in opposing him, he failed to meet the standard spelled out in the Code of Judicial Conduct, Rule 1.2, which states that a judge must “act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the independence, integrity, and impartiality of the judiciary, and shall avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety.”

The American Bar Association was prepared to revisit its previous “well qualified” rating of Kavanaugh after his disastrous hearing, but Senate Republicans went ahead and confirmed him, so the group let it go. Every Republican but one, Murkowski, voted to confirm him.

Amy Coney Barrett:

Barrett has suggested Roe v. Wade was an “erroneous decision” and called the Affordable Care Act’s birth control benefit “an assault on religious liberty.” She is on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court picks, which Trump said only includes people willing to overturn Roe v. Wade. The former Notre Dame law professor also sparked questions about her membership in a tightly knit Christian group called People of Praise, in which members swear a lifelong oath of loyalty and are accountable to a personal adviser ― called a “head” for men and a “handmaid” for women ― and are taught that husbands are the heads of their wives and should take authority over the family. Every Senate Republican voted to confirm her.

Don Willett:

The former Texas Supreme Court Justice consistently ruled against same-sex marriage rights, including a June 2017 ruling that same-sex spouses of Houston city workers have no inherent right to benefits under Obergefell v. Hodges, the federal marriage equality ruling. Willett also mocked a California law relating to transgender students’ participation in school sports. He has bragged that “there is no ideological daylight to the right of me,” and in his 2012 judicial election, he was endorsed by rabidly anti-LGBTQ advocates including Focus on the Family founder James Dobson and Christian revisionist historian David Barton. Willett is on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court picks, which Trump said only includes people willing to overturn Roe v. Wade. Every Senate Republican voted to confirm him.

Barrett is probably gonna be the replacement for the Notorious RBG. Willett was a hoot on Twitter before he was nominated and had to close down his account. And we all watched the Kavanaugh hearings. After reading what Bendery had to say about these three, I don’t have to read what she says about the others.

BTW: Of course these judges were confirmed by unanimous or near-unanimous Republican support in the Senate. That’s because the Democrats were united against them.

    RBG is never gonna die – I think she’s a cyborg

    • SHV says:

      She looked and sounded quite good when I saw her last Tuesday. Wouldn’t know she has inoperable Pancreatic Cancer.

      • mcnorman says:

        I know someone who lived well into their 9th year with pancreatic cancer.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Three brothers. One a two months, one three years, one over seven years. All had a variation that has a strong genetic factor that is more prevalent in males but each presented different initial symptoms and locals. First one diagnosed lived the longest. Others were caught much later. Also an auntie that lived about five years. Her up uncle, over a decade.

  2. Constance says:

    The Democrat media hasn’t been reporting on Trumps court appointments and telling their brain dead acolytes what they should think about it. I commented last week on a Seattle blog that due to Trumps skill at judge appointment half of the judges on the Ninth Circus are now Republican appointees. They called me a liar and were shocked and appalled. I really get a bang out of it.

  3. Constance says:

    How is it that there were so many vacant judge positions to fill when Trump took office? It seems like the Democrats can’t get anything at all done unless you count virtue signaling and manufacturing outrage. It seems like Obama the Great would have crammed the courts full of Ivy indoctrinated Libtards given the chance.

    Sad anniversary for Eric Bolling. He was fired from Fox, and soon after this happened. I’ve always wondered if it was his son who sent the hot Fox ladies lewd photos of his private parts, and Eric took the fall for it to protect his son? The timing was too close than random accidental o.d.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I have wondered if there was more to this as well. It made no sense. And FOX ‘s new overlords refused to admit they may have acted without actually verifying sources and that boring stuff news people are supposed to be doing but has determined to too boring and might get in the way of their spin .

      • DeniseVB says:

        Eric was the last person I’d ever expect to be a perv at Fox. If our hunch was true, too bad there wasn’t someone he could confide in. “Hey, it was my idiot kid……”

    Movie Alert. There’s a good one on today on TCM.

    A PLACE IN THE SUN SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 @ 03:45 PM (ET)

    Years ago I had a friend whose family came from Russia. She told me that in the old Soviet Union students had to read Theodore Dreiser’s An American Tragedy to show them how evil the capitalist system was.

    I never read the book, but I enjoyed the movie.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Tearjerker worth watching for Montgomery Clift, Liz Taylor and Shelly Winters. Also, The Subject was Roses is on later, I swear, thought it was Charlie Sheen starring until I realized it was his dad, Martin. 1968 should have been my first clue.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    LOL, Ozzy !

      One of my first albums, maybe while I’m still crazy after all these years 🙂

      • DeniseVB says:

        LOL. My first album was THE Beatles one. THE ORIGINAL. I invested about a month’s worth of babysitting (slave wages in the 60’s) to buy that thing. It would be worth a million now, but no, I wrote my name across the cover so no one would steal it. It’s worth maybe $5 now. 😀

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m really worried that 2020 may be Jonestown for these people, because I think this is what the Dem base is right now. Scary.

      Obama was a disaster for hard working people and to the point when he was re-elected, we cashed in all our investments and paid off our mortgage, so we were very liquid. We had an escape plan. 😉

      • Island Girl says:

        First time in my working life where I could not find a decent job and I will never forget.

      • John Denney says:

        I was seriously considering quitting my job if Hillary won. No way was I gonna support her with my tax dollars.

  11. SHV says:

    “Barrett is probably gonna be the replacement for the Notorious RBG.”
    ******
    If so, that is going to be really ugly…..The Dems will attack her and especially her children without mercy and with no thought of consequences of inflaming the crazies.

    • lyn says:

      Democrats and leftists have a lot of money behind their hate and bigotry. I wonder if they realize that their radicalization is based on hate. What’s going to happen when the militant normals challenged them? Our radicalization is based on love of country.

    • Constance says:

      I just wonder how they are going to adapt the fake rape accusations to accommodate a woman candidate. Will she be accused of raping a man, another woman, children, a dog? How low will Dems go?

  12. 1539days says:

    I’d be worried about all the Federalist Society nominees if the ABA wasn’t a completely biased organization that bases its recommendations on how liberal and activist a judge is.

  13. Dora says:

    North Korea just received it’s first typhoon landfall ever. There are concerns about it creating a humanitarian crisis.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Humanitarian crisis? As if there’s not one already 😉 I’m just worried about the Gorebal Warming freaks who will blame Trump for denying Global Warming !!!!!!1!! “Rare” happens a lot in climate and other natural disasters. “EARTHQUAKE IN VIRGINIA” comes to mind. Our planet has had a lot of burps and farts in the past gazzillion years since the Big Bang. The dinosaurs could not be reached for comment 😛

  14. Dora says:

    I can’t get the thought out of my mind that Hillary is waiting in the wings.

    Trump vs. Clinton 2020: Is the Deep State coming for the Oval?

    WASHINGTON: With Congress returning this week, the 2020 election, and impeachment quest ramps up. Numerous pundits and opinion writers have predicted that Hillary Clinton will be Democrat savior. Including the artist, Ben Garrison, behind the lead cartoon. Is Hillary the one that, this time, will beat Donald Trump?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Sounds like a money laundering to me, somebody check for the straw dogs (?) which got Dinesh D’Sousa put in jail. Who the hell would be donating to her now? After over a year on WalkAway, even the former most rabid Obama-Bernie-Hillary fans have been waking up to the lies and deceit. Beware Dems, recovering Democrats are going to be you biggest problem. LOL.

      • Mothy67 says:

        Perhaps it’s a ruse by kamala camp to tie her to hillary. The far left are not fans.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Last I heard, from a trusted news source said no one ever, Hillary’s helping Warren and Barry’s on the Kamala train. Neither are getting involved in the primaries. As Michelle said, diplomatically for the first time in her adult life, Obamas will support the duly nominated candidate. /snork. I read recently that the DNC is miffed the Obamas aren’t doing fundraising for the DNC, only themselves. This sounds like Hillary is poking them in the eye 😀

    i watched every minutes of the Kavanaugh hearings. It made me physically ill. Created even greater rifts between me and family because I didn’t believe a word Blasé-Ford said. Oddly enough, none of them watched the hearings. I will not watch any of the clips from that witch hunt. I hope she and the people who supported her rot in hell.

    Who is John Legend’s “filthy mouthed wife?”

    • elliesmom says:

      Chrissy Teigen. I only know who she is because someone recommended the cookbook she wrote to me. It’s amateur hour. I love the “Look Inside” feature on Amazon. She’s a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.

      • swanspirit says:

        I know who she is, but I keep forgetting her. She wrote a cookbook? Bwaaahhhaa. And she does have a filthy mouth.

      • lateblum says:

        I think Chrissy T. is almost as foul mouthed as Cardi B. If I had teens at home I’d probably censor their. Music for the first time ever, if they brought in anything by Cardi B. How Bernie Sanders can even be seen with her is beyond me. I guess he’ll sell his soul for votes this time instead of another house.
