Senate Approves President Trump’s 150th Judicial Nominee, Changing the Courts for Good

Yesterday, the Senate confirmed President Trump’s 150th judicial nominee.  That’s a record number of confirmations at this point in a president’s term.  It includes 105 federal district court judges, 43 circuit court judges and two Supreme Court justices.

This success has only been possible because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is no longer allowing progressives to abuse arcane rules to needlessly delay conservative nominees.

The president’s appointments have already flipped one circuit court majority and three more are on the verge of flipping.  The Washington Post lamented earlier this year that because of Trump’s seven nominees even the Ninth Circuit is no longer so reliably left-wing.  (There are 11 circuit courts, plus the highly influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.)

That’s why the left is going all out to defeat the nomination of Steven Menashi, whose appointment could flip the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.  Menashi has been viciously smeared by Rachel Maddow, CNN and other left-wing activists who do not want to see this conservative Jewish former Alito clerk on the federal bench.

If confirmed, Menashi could be a future Supreme Court nominee and the left is desperate to stop him now.

Please call your senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to support Menashi’s confirmation.
