Trump defies DiFi and Kamala

Trump defies DiFi and Kamala, nominating 3 Federalist Society members for Ninth Circuit
By Thomas Lifson
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is about to become about ten percent less crazy.  President Trump has nominated three new judges for the 29-seat circuit court, over the objections of the two senators representing their home state of California.  Until Trump discarded the practice, home state senators were allowed to veto judicial nominations for courts in their states, a custom known as the "blue slip."  That seems quaint these days, a relic of a bygone era in which actual qualifications, not ideology, were the issue in Senate confirmation votes that, anyway, required a filibuster-proof 60 votes.

"Last night the White House moved forward without consulting me, picking controversial candidates from its initial list and another individual with no judicial experience who had not previously been suggested," Feinstein said in a statement.

"Instead of working with our office to identify consensus nominees for the 9th Circuit, the White House continues to try to pack the courts with partisan judges who will blindly support the President's agenda, instead of acting as an independent check on this Administration," Lily Adams, Harris' communications director, said in a statement.

Bye-bye, blue slip.

Folks just step back and think about this move by Trump. This is a step in draining the swamp. This "blue slip" nonsense gave too much power to senators. Now that piece of the swamp has been drained. That is why Trump is so hated in Washington, by both parties.

yuk, at first glance I thought it said "Trump defiles DiFi and Kamala".

A nastier picture I've never hatched.

I have to give McConnell some credit for going along, he has also had a hand in helping Trump. Every day I am seeing more dims crash and burn, and I am seeing more Republicans jumping on the band wagon. Its a good time to be watching politics.
