Trump has been making great strides in the Judicial system

Well, the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation received a lot, and I mean a lot of attention the Trumpster has been killing it in the Judicial system. He has been replacing Judges left and right. BO let so many vacancies in the entire system sit open and unfilled.

The Senate has confirmed 84 Trump nominees to the federal bench: 53 trial judges, 29 appeals judges, and two Supreme Court justices.

Trump set a record for appeals court confirmations during the first year of a presidency in January 2017.

This is how you be sure the entire Judicial system will be fair and unbiased … with Justices that understand the Constitution, what it means and that is the Law of the Land!

Obama’s lack of action in this area may very well be the best thing that could have happened. This gave President Trump the ability to fill these positions.. including 2 Supreme Court appointments, so far.

So this could very well be the best, longest lasting accomplishments of the Trump Presidency.

The Senate confirmed three judicial nominees to federal appeals courts this week, rounding out a record-setting year-long confirmation gamut.

The nominees, Leonard Grasz, Don Willett, and James Ho were appointed to the 5th and 8th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal. The Senate has cleared 12 nominations to the circuit courts since President Donald Trump assumed office, a record for the modern era.

All three nominees were confirmed on narrow party-line votes, and they mark the culmination of a remarkably successful confirmation effort. Trump has secured 12 circuit court confirmations this year, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. By way of comparison, former President Barack Obama had just three circuit court confirmations during the first year of his administration — former President George W. Bush had six, and former President Bill Clinton had three.

6.30.18 SCOTUS Deals Unions Devastating Blow

We’ll be discussing the Supreme Court ruling that teachers, police officers and other public employees cannot be forced to pay dues or fees to support their unions. The decision changes employees’ rights in 22 states and could end the financial structure and political power of unions as we have known. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy has launched MyPayMySay.org to educate employees of their new rights to opt-out of unions.

Joining us at 7 am will be Patrick Wright, Vice President for Legal Affairs at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, where he directs the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation. He joined the Center in June 2005 after serving for three years as a Michigan Supreme Court commissioner, a post in which he made recommendations to the court concerning which state appeals court cases it should hear.

Prior to that, Wright spent four years as an assistant attorney general for the State of Michigan, where he gained significant litigation and appellate advocacy experience. He joined the state Attorney General’s Office after one year as a policy advisor in the Senate Majority Policy Office of the Michigan Senate. Wright also spent two years as a law clerk to Hon. H. Russell Holland, a United States district court judge in Alaska.

Wright received his law degree at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He graduated with honors in 1994. He received his undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Michigan in 1990.

Wright lives in Midland, Mich., with his wife and sons
