TRUMP SCORECARD: 84 Judges Confirmed…But Midterms Will Decide Many More

Published

on

President Donald Trump has gotten 84 of his judges confirmed, even with persistent gridlock in Congress.

Trump’s judiciary still has a 14 percent vacancy and it’s going to be much harder for him to grind through Democrat obstruction if Republicans fail to win the House of Representatives on November 6th.

The Associated Press noted that he is only third in judicial appointments at this point in the presidency.

AP reported: “Even with two years remaining in office, Trump has a long way to go to name 50 percent of the judges in the federal courts. His appointees now occupy roughly 10 percent of the judicial seats authorized by Congress. That’s compared to 28 percent for Kennedy and 15 percent for Clinton at the 21-month mark. Presidentially appointed federal judgeships are lifetime appointments.”

Trump is on a roll. But the roll needs to continue.

National Review reports:

But things are looking up in a couple of different ways. First, the overall confirmation pace has markedly improved in the last few months. The three-month total of 39 confirmations during August-October was exceeded only five times since 1949. As their arbitrary and unprecedented obstruction tactics have been exposed, Democrats have used them less. As a result, Trump is now slightly ahead of the average confirmation pace of his five predecessors at the same point in their presidencies.

Second, the decision by Trump and Senate Republican leaders to prioritize filling vacancies on the U.S. Courts of Appeals is working. Trump has already appointed more appeals-court judges than any new president in history, with at least a few more expected by the end of the year.

When the Senate reconvenes after the election, we will know what the partisan landscape will look like in the 116th Congress, which begins on January 3. There will still be work to do, however, because 32 judicial nominees are on the full Senate’s docket, and another 22 are ready for Judiciary Committee hearings or approval. That would make Trump’s first two years a real judicial confirmation triumph.

Senate Democrats Shut Down Late-Term Abortion Bans, Born-Alive Protections

This party supports late-term abortion.

Published

on

Senate Democrats blocked a vote on two major pro-life bills in the legislative chamber on Tuesday, leaving little doubt that the party is wholly united behind support for unlimited abortion.

The two laws that were blocked were the The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protections Act.

The first law would prohibit abortion being enacted upon children who survive abortion procedures. Some Democrats have suggested that it’s fair game to carry out ghoulish abortion procedures on babies who are alive.

The second bill would’ve instituted bans on abortions enacted upon fetuses that are capable of pain. Such a ban would affect late-term abortions, most notably rare procedures that are carried out on fetuses that are more than 20 weeks into development.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer chalked up the blocking of the pro-life bills as a political move. He claimed the consideration of laws was merely a gambit to embarrass Democrats.

In remarks after the bills were blocked from a formal floor vote, he seemed wholly unreflective as to why it was right to dismiss legislation that would institute relatively tame and common-sense restrictions on widely unpopular late-term abortion procedures.

Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Alabama Doug Jones were the only Democrats to vote to bring the Born Alive law up for further consideration on the Senate floor. The laws would’ve required 60 votes to advance beyond the Senate flilbuster, a margin they both failed to reach.

Republican Senators blasted the chamber’s Democrats for their extremist unwillingness to consider even the most mild of restrictions on late-term abortion.

The votes to shut down pro-life laws that are fundamentally limited in scope makes it hard for Democrats to argue that they aren’t the party of Ralph Northam.
