Trump’s Been Making America Great Again With Secret Changes…Media Eerily Quiet

As the media focused on President Donald Trump’s stunning debt-ceiling deal with Democrats last week, the president quietly moved forward with his plan to reshape the judiciary by submitting 16 judicial nominees to the Senate for confirmation.

Listed in a White House statement published Thursday, the nominees included a litany of conservative firebrands such as current deputy White House Counsel Gregory G. Katsas, a former clerk of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and a veteran of former President George W. Bush’s Justice Department.

Some media outlets did take notice of the move, although it was rather buried under news of the debt-ceiling deal as well as coverage about Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Still, here’s what some pundits had to say:

“Greg Katsas has a long an illustrious career both in government and private practice and is a widely respected Supreme Court advocate,” Carrie Severino of the conservative Judicial Crisis Networktold CNN. “While I expect the Democrats will try to put partisan politics first, it’s hard to overlook his impressive qualifications and his commitment to the rule of law.”

Even the hardcore intellectual conservatives at National Review were impressed by Katsas’s nomination.

“(A) Judge Katsas would have a consistent judicial philosophy, one in line with Trump’s promises,” wrote contributing editor Shannon W. Coffin, adding that the president’s choice in Katsas was a veritable “Trump home run.”

If approved, Katsas would serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Likewise, Ryan Wesley Bounds would serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, and Elizabeth L. “Lisa” Branch would serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

With conservatives such as these running the circuit and appellate courts, the president would stand a far higher chance of being able to move ahead with his agenda, which explains the liberal reaction to these awesome nominations.

As reported by The Huffington Post, radical leftist organizations have begun “pressuring members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to slow down the confirmation process for federal judges, thereby limiting how many President Donald Trump can seat.”

Obstruction, in other words — a cornerstone of so-called Democrat “leadership.”

“Tell the Senate Judiciary Committee: No lifetime judicial appointments for a white supremacist in chief with no respect for the Constitution or the rule of law,” wrote Credo, one of the radical groups leading the mission against the president’s nominees.

Correction: Obstruction and insanity.

These people are completely bonkers, which is why Democrat congressional leaders would be wise to ignore them. Of course, some Democrats are just as crazy and delusional as they are, so who knows what’ll happen.
