During Barack Obama’s 8 year reign of socialist destruction of American, he appointed a total of 329 federal judges. Two were appointed to the US Supreme Court, 4 to US Court of International Trade, 55 to US Court of Appeals, and 268 to US District Courts, along with several other federal courts.
A number of those judges have become political activists for the socialist Democratic Party. They have been using their positions on the federal courts to challenge many of the legal actions of President Donald Trump and other conservative politicians. They have systematically blocked a number of state and local laws that were passed to protect the rights of the American people.
We’ve seen these socialist judges try to block Trump on immigration, on building the border wall and a host of other campaign promises that Trump has tried to fulfill.
Democrats in the courts and Congress have been going out to their way to try to block as many of Trump’s actions as possible. If you recall, the day after the 2016 election, when it was revealed the Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, a number of congressional Democrats vowed to fight and block everything Trump would try to do. These Democrats proved right then and there that they don’t give a darn about the American people or helping the American people. All they care about is defeating Trump.
This was further made evident during the Senate hearings on then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats, led by radical leftist Sen. Kamala Harris, launched an unsubstantiated character assassination attack against Kavanaugh to try to prevent him from being confirmed by the Senate. Thankfully, the allegations were unproven and Kavanaugh was confirmed and now sits on the highest court in the land.
Now it seems that Democrats have found another way to try to block Trump’s nominations to federal courts, as reported:
Justice may be blind, but the American Bar Association is not. That’s the biggest takeaway from Wednesday’s Senate hearing, when Ninth Circuit Court nominee Lawrence VanDyke became the ABA’s latest contestant on “conservatives don’t have talent.” Like most of this president’s picks, VanDyke probably braced himself for the Kavanaugh Treatment. But he never imagined the country’s largest attorney organization would stoop to label him “not qualified.”
How can a judicial nominee who graduated magna cum laude, “edited the Harvard Law Review, clerked for a top circuit judge, litigated extensively at the district and appellate levels, and served as solicitor general of two states be deemed “unqualified?” the editors of the Wall Street Journal ask. “Only if the group making the judgment is the liberal lawyers’ guild known as the American Bar Association, and the nominee in question is a Republican—and worse, an evangelical Christian…”
Ignoring his years of experience and credentials that are “right out of central casting” for an appellate judge, Article III’s Mike Davis insisted, the ABA’s rating dropped like a bomb. Blasting VanDyke as “arrogant, lazy” and “an ideologue” who “does not have an open mind,” the report was such an over-the-top thrashing that experts like Carrie Severino said it was time for the Senate to end the group’s role. In fact, the report was so wildly vitriolic (unsurprising, since it was authored by a donor to one of VanDyke’s political opponents in Montana) that even Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) thought the ABA should be brought in to explain.
At one point, the ABA even attacked VanDyke’s religious beliefs, implying that he wouldn’t be fair to members of the LGBTQ community—a charge so vicious and unfounded that Lawrence broke down in tears when Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) asked him about it. “I did not say that,” he insisted, his voice breaking. “I do not believe that. It is a fundamental belief of mine that all people are created in the image of God and they should all be treated with dignity and respect.”
Notice that the ABA attacked VanDyke because of his Christian beliefs which they claim will sway his decisions. Then doesn’t that mean that those men and women who are not Christians will also allow their beliefs, be it atheism, socialism, Islam or whatever, to influence how they rule on the bench? To Democrats, including those who now control the ABA, that doesn’t matter.
