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.
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.
Planned Parenthood Admits Running Fetal Chop Shop for Profit, Harvesting Parts From Babies Born Alive
Mengele would be proud of modern-day abortionists.
Planned Parenthood has been forced to admit the lurid details of their fetal chop shop operation, in which they harvest babies born alive in order to ship their mutilated parts around for heinously unethical medical research.
New video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows Planned Parenthood leaders and their affiliates admitting under oath to participating in gross experimentation and human trafficking, proving what pro-life activists have been saving for years to be undeniably true.
Perrin Larton, the procurement manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), gave testimony in which she confirmed that she has aborted babies whose hearts were “beating independently” after they were taken from the womb. In these cases, the babies are ultimately killed and dismembered by the abortion doctor.
“They just, sometimes they fall out,” Larton said of the fetuses that come out whole, adding that this happens “once every couple months.” At this point, technicians would “do a dissection” on the baby “to get the tissues that the researchers have requested.”
“I can see hearts that are not in an intact P.O.C. [product of conception, meaning aborted baby] that are beating independently,” Larton said – admitting that babies come out of the womb with a heartbeat and are then dissected for parts.
Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who once worked as former senior director of medical services for national Planned Parenthood, also issued some chilling comments under oath. She was asked if she “ever had a patient deliver in the operating room a non-viable fetus.”
“I’m sure I have,” she responded. She also said that determining the viability of a fetus “depends on where you work,” meaning it is a completely arbitrary process based on “the availability of interventions” at a particular clinic. She used to set the Medical Standards & Guidelines for every Planned Parenthood nationwide.
Jon Dunn, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties in California, also gave testimony under oath. He admitted that at least one baby set for an abortion was born alive at his facility.
“I know they kept it warm and comfortable for the very brief period that it was alive. I don’t think there was even time to call 911,” Dunn said, later adding: “This is something that every obstetrician/gynecologist deals with on rare occasion. … It is their medical judgment what to do in that circumstance.”
Center for Medical Progress leader David Daleiden is urging for authorities to take action in lieu of these stunning new revelations.
“How long will public authorities permit Planned Parenthood and their associates to sell living children inside and outside the womb and then kill them through organ harvesting?” Daleiden asked. “The [Department of Justice] has vigorously prosecuted the sale of eagle body parts. Surely selling human body parts after cutting them out of an infant with a beating heart is at least as grave of a crime.”
