    "President Trump nominated a slew of judges Friday to posts on California-based federal courts, ramping up efforts to reshape the judiciary after hitting a milestone earlier this month with the confirmation of the 150th federal judge on his watch.

    Two nominations are for the influential San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, a long-liberal bench with jurisdiction across the American West whose political makeup has shifted with Trump’s aggressive appointment campaign."

    For those that proclaim Trump hasn't done anything, and there are several here on GT, then I say to you BULLSHET!

    We could use some conservative judges on the 9th circus.

    All the more reason to keep the Senate and the White House in 2020. We need another 300+ Federal judges to keep the US free of the communists.

    Judges appointed are probably the longest lasting legacy that President Trump will have.

    My understanding is that the old WH Council, Don McGahn, was hugely involved with getting "the list" set up. Now that he's gone, I hope it's a long list or the new guy takes over. I really doubt Trump knows any of the names.

    As was mentioned above, keeping the Senate is a close second to re-electing Trump.

    Oh, and a Yuge shoutout to McConnell. He may be a wimp on legislation but he's been kicking butt on judge confirmations. :thumbsup:

    Where’d all the people go who used to incessantly post that Trump was just another New York liberal?

    Absolutely! It's the gift that keeps on giving (unlike the jelly of the month club on "Christmas Vacation.")

    The Federal courts in California have been nests of Liberal slugs for too long. Trump is doing something about those courts and the rest of that idiotic west coast.

    Think about it. Trump is doing things that will engrave his legacy as POTUS for many decades! Straight up...… the President is pretty sharp!

    “What goes round, comes around.” Of course it does Nancy. It happened a number of years ago when qualified Democratic nominees to the District Courts were held up by Republicans.

    Nancy-no one plays nice in politics unless it gets him or her where they want to be. I thought you learned that a longggggggggg time ago. And gosh, your former counterpart in the Senate, Mr. Reed, really screwed up the current Democrats because he was thinking short term, just like you do.

    any Republican who does not vote for Trump is working against our future. our future is the Court, any and every Court.

    I really think Trump is one of the best presidents we have had in a long long time, and result wise for what is good for our country, he’s IMHO, probably the best we have ever had. He is a Washington outsider and not just another finger in the wind, kick the can down the road politician. He is a revealer and a disrupter of all the corruption that is in our government at all levels. I also really like that he is politically incorrect. Thank you Jesus!
    Vote Trump and Republican in 2020!

    It would be a great way to proceed into the 21st century with a common sense balance restored to the 9th.

    Imagine if that was a Bush, Dole, McCain, or Romney. They would all be nominating a number of liberals to keep the "balance on the court" and make nice with democrats (something democrats never do), and respecting the blue slip process. This guy just keeps putting them on the bench. And in a very unapologetic manner.

    This is great news considering that ultimately our Second Amendment Rights will largely be determined by the courts and possibly sooner than later.

    Liberals scream that it's unfair for our POTUS to appoint Conservatives to the courts. It's OK, however when the courts are packed with Liberals!
