Making The Third Branch Conservative

Going all the way back to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who tried to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices that would allow him to proceed with him socialistic programs in order to get America out of the Great Depression, liberals have long sought to control not only the White House and Congress, but the Judicial Branch of government as well. And up until now, they’ve succeeded.

Ah, but the times, they are a changin’!

Donald Trump has made it his goal to reshape the Judicial Branch of government by appointing conservatives to the federal bench at an alarming rate. So far, Trump has had 90 judges confirmed, 35 of whom are at the appeals court level. Two obviously have been Supreme Court nominees in Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. The other 53 have been at the Federal District Court level.

What’s interesting is that Trump has actually flipped the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. And there is a good chance that in the next year or so, he has actually converted the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals from solidly liberal to a 6-6 tie. That Circuit Court handles appeals throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.

Currently, six of the other Circuit Courts of Appeals have Democrat majorities, while four additional have Republican majorities. But if Trump succeeds in keeping his nominations intact, there is a likelihood that the numbers may flip to six GOP and four Democrat majorities.

This should help the Supreme Court in their decision to reverse a lot of extremely liberal and socialistic tendencies well into the future. The prize nut of all would be the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, which handles appeals for most of the west. It’s been the most liberal court in the land for decades, and also the most over-turned by the US Supreme Court. But that may change in a very short period of time!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. Chief Justice Roberts turned out to be a great disappointment!

    I think he needs to go back to law school and learn the definition of “statutory interpretation”! He re-wrote the Affordable Health Care Act when he turned it into a tax.

    1. Yeah, I was befuddled by that one too! And of course, now, they get to decide whether it’s constitutional or nor based on the fact it’s no longer considered a “tax” because you no longer have to pay a penalty. I can’t see how he says it’s constitutional based on his earlier claim!

      1. Not to mention the violation of the anti-injunction act. If the Affordable Care Act was a tax then it shouldn’t have been ruled on until the act was actually in affect and people actually suffered the injury!

      2. And that was Chief Justice Roberts’ first mistake! It’s amazing that non-lawyer people like you and me can figure that out, but bright legal scholars like Roberts have a problem with it!
