Trump to inherit more than 100 court vacancies, plans to reshape judiciary

Image result for us courtsDonald Trump is set to inherit an uncommon number of vacancies in the federal courts in addition to the open Supreme Court seat, giving the president-elect a monumental opportunity to reshape the judiciary after taking office.

The estimated 103 judicial vacancies that President Obama is expected to hand over to Trump in the Jan. 20 transition of power is nearly double the 54 openings Obama found eight years ago following George W. Bush’s presidency.

Confirmation of Obama’s judicial nominees slowed to a crawl after Republicans took control of the Senate in 2015. Obama White House officials blame Senate Republicans for what they characterize as an unprecedented level of obstruction in blocking the Democratic president’s court picks.

The result is a multitude of openings throughout the federal circuit and district courts that will allow the new Republican president to quickly make a wide array of lifetime appointments.

State gun control laws, abortion restrictions, voter laws, anti-discrimination measures and immigrant issues are all matters that are increasingly heard by federal judges and will be influenced by the new composition of the courts. Trump has vowed to choose ideologues in the mold of the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative icon — a prospect that has activists on the right giddy.

Go Trump Go, the Communist think they will influence with their talk and threats. The Communist demonrats lost we won and probably for the next hundred years. Trump's appointments are conservative, the Supreme court appointments and referral of the obama damage on America and Trump could leave a legacy as the greatest President ever. I would like everyone to pray for Trump and making America great again.

Fill them all with conservative AMERICANS 

That is a good start....i think federal; judges who advocate for sharia law should be removed

GOD IS AT WORK, JUST KEEP THE FAITH, KEEP OUR NATION AND THE WORLD COVERED IN BELIEVING FAITH...!!! AMERICA, BACK TO GOD, ONE NATION UNDER GOD AND SUPPORTERS OF ISRAEL...

judges should stick with enforcing the laws on the books not invent new ones to stroke their ego or reflect their beiefs

The Bolsheviks thought they would be in control infinitum.  Now they're wondering how they could have lost.  Maybe bashing and trashing the country and our conservative and moderate values wasn't too smart after all.

Let's get rid of all these lazy, sissy minded individuals, and get some Roy Bean types in Office, those who will make it so unpleasant to answer to their Crimes, and their stay in Prison so long, it will discourage Crime for "Fun& Profit".

You got Jo

Agreed !

This is good news.

Thank you, God!!! 

Trump will crush the opposition once he gets control of all levers of power including the judiciary. This is wonderful news and I love how Trump's chief of staff put it, "this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King." Trump will drain the swamp and make America great again! Praise the Lord, and Trump!

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
