I guess President Trump should golf more

The Senate just confirmed the 200th Trump federal court appointee. I'm sure replies won't give honest props to the administration/Senate's accomplishment. I expect personal aspersions about the quality or morals of the judges. Why? Because I've seen a pattern. Leftist loons can't just disagree, they have to dehumanize.

They did it to Kavanagh. He wasn't just voted down by Dems, they tried to make him into a rapist, giving national platform to someone's claims with no dates, no times, no places. Her cadre of intended corroborating witnesses denied ever hearing anything about it. Blase-Ford didn't report it at the time or share it with a priest, a teacher, a girlfriend, parent. Her family did not corroborate "a mysterious time when she withdrew and isolated for a whole summer and never explained" or anything like that. Meanwhile Kavanah's lifetime of intentional career advocacy for women (and minority) was dragged through the mud.

Isn't this statement kind of doing the same?

I'm sure some of the judges are good people. The problem i have with this record number od appointments is twofold.

First, trump himself couldn't tell the difference between a good judge and a bad one. By that, i mean to say that "good" to him is corrupt. Not someone inclined toward the rule of law, but someone willing to lean his way regardless of the law or constitution, the way his AG does.

Second, the fact that there were so many openings to fill is due partly because McConnell's senate interfered with Obama's duty to fill them. It is disingenuous to say Obama didnt accomplish the number of judicial appointments that would have been available, when the senate flat out refused to hear them.

The last thing i can say on the topic is the Federalist Society is basically making the picks for him, based on totally partisan reasons. Judges, ideally, should endeavor to be nuetral.

What has justice, morals, ethics or caring for your fellow man ever had to do with the American way of life ?

Yes, another one NOT recommended by the ABA. How on earth does he manage to find the most biased uneducated lawyers in the world?

He recommends ones that say they would represent him probably. I drove an attorney from DC a few years ago who said non of the major firms would represent trump because he talked to much and they couldnt defend him properly. The reputational risk was way too high compared what was to be gained by representing him

Yes, that’s an amazing feat. Democrats have to be ashamed of themselves for letting this happen in the first, while Republicans worked tirelessly for the past 2 decades towards packing the courts and the Supreme Court with judges that are preferred by conservatives.

In this regards Obama and the Democrats have been a total failure even though McConnel said outright in public, that his number one goal is block anything Obama tries to pass.

Republicans are a minority, yet they have control over most of the judicial and senate, barely representing the true makeup of the country.

Democrats are yet to take this this seriously. The recent Louisiana abortion access ruling shouldn't be considered a win, as 4 conservative judges didn’t care about precedent. That’s the only reason Roberts voted with liberals, even though he voted against in a similar case years ago.

Republicans know how to stand their ground and win; democrats know how to lose even when they are in power. Merrick Garland and Hillary Clinton much!

My worry with Biden, is that he will try to work with the other side, like Obama did, even after time and time again, Republicans just gave them the middle finger, in public.

I used to have a couple regulars that I drove when I worked for the limo service. One was with CFPB, one with HHS, and one was a civilian advisor with the CIA, they all thought he was buttnut crazy. That was in 2017, I wonder what they think now?

Cool story!👍

Let this guy golf his way out of presidency, keep his stupid mouth shut. Cut off his twitter account as a “corporate savings“ to his people. (Im sure its free, but we can use that as an excuse)

Then send him to China, Russia, and N. Korea. See how well he fares over there on a “landslide and epic” visits from an american president. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Shit... They might be able to all play golf together as leaders! 😆😂🤪🤣

I suspect POTUS will be sent back to the WH come November.
Reminder: Hillary was 14 points ahead of Trump and she won the popular vote.

You do tend to adopt the party line fairly quickly and efficiently, UberBeemer.

First, All presidents generally nominate judges recommend by staff, political allies, and same-party members of Congress. So, other people generally always make the picks for any president.

Next, Democrats generally ascribe to a creative interpretation of the law and constitution to fulfill their political issues of the day. Penumbras for $400, anyone? Republicans are generally textualists and or originalists.

Whining about AG Barr is a battle field prep for upcoming indictment and prosecution of Obama administration officials complicit in the Russia collusion hysteria. It does seem odd not to recognize the clear partisanship if Obama's AGs. Didn't Eric holder describe himself as Obama's "wing man"? Doesn't sound like non-partisan administration of the DOJ there.

Second, a president doesn't have a "duty" to fill federal judicial openings, he has the sole power to nominate, but is not obligated to exercise that power. Similarly, the Senate has the sole power to confirm nominees (advise and consent), but is not obligated to exercise that power. Claiming the opposing party "interfered" is merely whining when the Senate chooses not to do something it is not required to do.

It used to be that the Senate believed, and embodied in their internal rules that a supermajority was required to confirm a nominee, to have more broadly accepted confirmations. Unfortunately, we largely have Democrats to thank for weakening this act of comity, Harry Reid, specifically. After protesting against these acts which increased partisanship, Mitch McConnell took the next step and changed the rules to eliminate supermajorities for supreme court nominations.

The difference between 2016 and now is that then Hillary was the most hated candidate. Trump takes that honor this time around. Biden is a basically decent and likable guy and that may be enough this time.

They are also too well aware of his history of non-payment. Say what you will, but no partner worth his salt would bring in a client that would burn through so many resources and not pay.

Every point i made is simply a fact. It has to do with observation of what has happened.

If anyone lept to a party line, it was you with your generalizations.

Agreed, hard to dislike old joe with advancing Alzheimer’s and his Long Good Bye.
Not his fault.

Democrats are conspiring to gaslight the American people by engineering the election of a man clearly suffering from dementia, former Vice President Joe Biden”

Biden may have lost a step but he's still going to sound like Churchill compared to Trump.

Only reason they are putting him in is because they plan on him leaving fast to put a socialist in place. You want that? Hell no.
