In a campaign event in Austin, Texas, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders declared he would only nominate Supreme Court judges who are in favor of abortions up to birth.
Sanders believes there is a constitutional right to abortion up to birth.
“My promise to you is I will never nominate anybody to the Supreme Court or the federal bench who is not 100 percent pro-Roe. v Wade,” Sanders stated, alluding to the Supreme Court case that nationalized abortion.
On the other hand, President Donald Trump has put dozens of solid conservative judges on the federal courts, which include pro-life advocates.
According to Steven Ertelt of Life Site News, Trump’s faithfulness in nominating conservatives to the bench has been praised by pro-lifers.
Melissa Clement of Nevada Right to Life salutes Trump for keeping his promise.
“In 2016, a lot of us voted for President Trump solely on the promise of pro-life judges, half expecting the usual bait and switch. I am happy to say we are not waiting until after the next election. Promises made have been kept and will continue,” Clement commented.
Some 47 years ago, the Supreme Court created a right to abortion from whole cloth. With Roe v. Wade (and the accompanying Doe v Bolton), abortion was legalized and legitimized for all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason. Seven judges changed the course of history and, in the process, sentenced more than 60 million unborn Americans – so far – to death,” Clement asserted. “We have made progress in protecting the unborn in many states, but every positive law that protects the unborn and their mothers ends up in front of judges.
“Elections matter. We need good, brave pro-life legislators and we need strict constructionist judges that will not overturn pro-life legislation,” Clement continued.
The pro-life activist believes the president has done a great job on his judicial appointments.
“President Donald J. Trump has kept his pro-life promise of nominating solid judges,” she said.
Ertelt noted some of the solid pro-life appointments Trump made:
Some of Trump’s judges include Matthew Walden McFarland, a former member of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, and the pro-life organization Scioto County Right to Life. Fellow nominee Anuraag Hari Singhal, a Florida state judge, is a member of the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal organization, and the Federalist Society. Another nominee, Daniel Mack Traynor, of North Dakota, served as a member of the Thomas More Society and the Christian Legal Society.
Trump’s nominations of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have also received praise.
One of the highlights of the Trump administration has been his judicial nominees which have brought back rule of law into the courts.
More importantly, it’s kept radical judicial activism in check.
Conservatives should be grateful that they have a president in Donald Trump that is willing to appoint judges that will not turn the judiciary into another legislative branch.
Free Speech Organization FIRE Defends Kansas State Student Jaden McNeil From a Politically Correct Lynch Mob, KSU Will Not Expel the Student
Given the tense climate of American political discourse in 2020, there was speculation that he was about to be expelled from the university.
Nevertheless, online activism from the likes of staunch right-winger Michelle Malkin helped create sufficient pushback against the lynch mobs that were descending on McNeil.
Now, McNeil has even more backup with free speech organization The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) coming to his defense.
FIRE sent KSU a resounding warning:
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty, freedom of speech, due process, academic freedom, legal equality, and freedom of conscience on America’s college campuses.
FIRE appreciates that Kansas State University is one of the few institutions in the country whose policies earn a ‘green light’ rating from FIRE. We write today in response to the University’s statement that it is reviewing its “options” concerning KSU undergraduate Jaden McNeil’s statement on social media.
KSU made a suggestive tweet in response to McNeil’s original tweet about Floyd:
A message from President Richard Myers:
The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.

A message from President Richard Myers: The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.
We are launching an immediate review of the university’s options. Black Lives Matter at Kansas State University and we will continue to fight for social justice.
McNeil tweeted jokingly, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”
FIRE’s letter served as a reminder to KSU that as a public university it is bound by the United States Constitution and is compelled to protect free speech per the First Amendment. Yes, even when it comes to offensive speech.
The letter added:
While McNeil’s tweets may be deeply offensive to many, they do not fall into a category of speech unprotected by the First Amendment, which strictly limits public universities like KSU from punishing protected expression.
The entire statement can be read on Michelle Malkin’s twitter feed:

The stakes are high in 2020, as free speech hangs in the balance thanks to relentless pressure from the PC Left and Big Tech.
The good news is that KSU announced that it will not expel McNeil over his Tweet. But the fight is far from over.
Anyone who values American freedoms should stand in solidarity with McNeil.
