National Review

This evening, President Trump announced his 18th wave of judicial nominees, including two nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and three nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. With this announcement, only a handful of federal court of appeals vacancies lacking named nominees remain.

Filling these instrumental federal judicial appointments is a significant accomplishment by the President, as well as Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley.

And the President continues his trend of making outstanding nominations to the courts of appeal. The nominees announced today will bring significant experience and desperately needed philosophical diversity to the Second and Ninth Circuits.

Below are links to bios of the five new appellate court nominees announced today.

Joseph Bianco (Second Circuit)

Michael Park (Second Circuit)

Patrick Bumatay (Ninth Circuit)

Dan Collins (Ninth Circuit)

Ken Lee (Ninth Circuit)

Links to bios at the link.

The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

The Dems aren’t going to like these nominations. Do you think that they’ll be able to stall them by withholding their blue slips?

No.

Thanks to their unreasonable withholding in the past, Chairman Grassley has boldly decided that a courtesy is just that, and not a veto.

I think DiFi and Kamela announced a committee to recommend suitable candidates for judgeships in Whackyland. I doubt, but do not know, that any of these were approved. It doesn’t much matter. They won’t be confirmed in this Congress so we’ll see about next year.

This is going to help us behind enemy lines, in the 9th district. Will be great to have our 2nd Amendment rights back.

“…Of the 22 active judges on the bench [of the ninth circuit] — the court is authorized to have 29 judgeships — 16 were nominated by Democratic presidents, and six were nominated by Republicans.”

This sounds to me as though conservatives would still be in the minority even if President Trump’s three nominees are seated.

I’m not sure how important that is, given the size of the circuit, the number of judges (22 active, 18 senior), the assignments to 3 judge panels, and even en banc hearings do not include all judges. I also wonder if there might be a informal quota of circuit judgeships from each state, so many from Washington, so many from
Oregon, so many from CA, etc.

Was at a Rally today, the Rep National Chairman was there, since Don Trump Jr. could not get out of Fla for the event.
He said Pres. Trump thinks that it is just as important to fill the Federal Courts as well as the lower Supreme courts with conservative judges as it is the Supreme court.
He said only 9% of all lower court cases make it to the supreme court of the U.S.
It makes sense. Heck these lower courts were blocking Trumps mandates and not allowing him to run the country...usually for phony reasons as well.

Yeah, it's all important.

Pack the courts, you have to make hay while the sun is shining.

Way to go Senator McConnel! Personally, I’d have been a greedy dog and insisted that they confirm *every* nominee that PDJT has in the pipeline, but better the pound of flesh you can get than the three pounds (or ten or whatever) that you can’t.

Sorry, DiFi. What it means is that you have zero influence anymore, having squandered it in the Kavanaugh antics.

It takes 20 years to build a reputation, and about 6 weeks to destroy one.

Maybe you can leak those blue slips.
