Trump Transforming Federal Appeals Court Into a Liberal Attorney’s Worst Nightmare #Trump #crime

The Senate on Thursday confirmed the 25th and 26th appellate court judges during President Donald Trump’s tenure, as Republicans continued reshaping the federal judiciary at a record clip.

The Senate approved A. Marvin Quattlebaum Jr. by a vote of 62 to 28, and backed Julius Ness Richardson on a vote of 81 to 8. Both will join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit.

The GOP-controlled Senate has been approving appellate court judges at a rapid pace, already setting a record for the most confirmed during a president’s first two years in office, SFGate reports.

GOP leaders are installing jurists favored by conservatives who are likely to influence decisions on immigration, voting rights, abortion and the environment for decades.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said Democrats would sue the National Archives if their Freedom-of-Information request for all records from Kavanaugh’s time as an associate in the White House Counsel’s Office and as White House staff secretary were denied.

Schumer said Republicans had “chosen obfuscation over transparency.”

Republicans have requested Kavanaugh’s White House counsel records but have ruled his staff secretary papers out of bounds. In addition to the documents, Kavanaugh has spent a dozen years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, amassing a record of more than 300 legal opinions that Republicans say are the best indicator of the kind of Supreme Court justice he will be.

While much of the focus has been on Kavanaugh, McConnell has secured Senate confirmation of more than two dozen nominees to the 13 U.S. courts of appeals.

McConnell called Quattlebaum and Richardson “two well-qualified judicial nominees.”

As a U.S. attorney, Richardson successfully prosecuted Dylann Roof, who was convicted in the killing of nine black parishioners during a massacre inside a Charleston, S.C., church in 2015.

Richardson also clerked for the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist.


Meanwhile, a sexually deviant, utterly immoral judge decided that mentally ill boys whose derangement tells them they are the wrong gender, will continue to be allowed in girls’ restrooms and locker rooms in Oregon after a judge dismissed a lawsuit against that policy, saying, “high school students do not have a fundamental privacy right to not share school restrooms, lockers, and showers with transgender students whose biological sex is different than theirs.”

Students who are unwillingly subjected to seeing students of the opposite sex are not having their rights violated, U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez wrote.

This ruling “reveals everything people need to know to understand the utter corruption of our court system,” Julie Quist, Board Chair of the Child Protection League (CPL), told LifeSiteNews. “Decency and respect for our children…are being cast aside for the political advantage of a militant political force that is systematically violating the innocence, dignity and freedom of our children and all of us.”

The lawsuit against Oregon schools allowing boys in girls’ restrooms and vice versa was filed by parents and students in Dallas, Oregon. This gender-free policy caused “embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, intimidation, fear, apprehension, and stress produced by using the restroom with students of the opposite sex,” they said in the lawsuit.

The problems began when the Dallas School District allowed a girl to change in the boys’ locker rooms. She didn’t like changing in the gender-neutral bathroom because it was too far away and other students noticed, according to the Washington Post.

“This ruling, and others like it, is a hostile takeover,” Quist continued. “CPL urges parents to immediately begin to take steps to remove their children from any public schools where this policy is being enforced, and to take seriously a new burden of their responsibility of citizenship to throw out all incumbent elected officials everywhere who will not fight for them. If we love our children, it’s that important.”


School districts across the country have faced a slew of legal issues over whether to allow gender-confused boys in girls’ restrooms or hotel rooms on school trips and vice versa. The Obama administration threatened to pull federal funding from schools that didn’t enact transgender-approved policies. The Trump administration dropped that effort.

In 2017, the Supreme Court declined to hear a case about transgender school bathrooms, kicking it back to a lower court.

Recently, the number of children who are homeschooled has been rising anywhere from three percent to eight percent each year, according to data from the National Center for Education Statistics.
