One of President Donald Trump's biggest achievements since entering the White House – making the federal courts more conservative – crossed a major threshold Tuesday.

For the first time, he turned a federal appeals court previously dominated by Democratic presidents' nominees into one with a majority of Republican presidents' choices.


Senate confirmation of Paul Matey to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, with jurisdiction over Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, gave Trump and his GOP predecessors in the White House a 7-6 majority there. The Senate vote was 54-45, largely along party lines.

Matey, 48, a former top counsel to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, became Trump's 35th appeals court nominee to reach the bench with seven more pending, continuing a record pace. The Senate also has confirmed 53 of Trump's picks for federal district courts, with another 54 nominees pending.

The president's goal of remaking the federal judiciary began in January 2017 with the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch's confirmation and that of Brett Kavanaugh last October have made the nation's highest court more conservative.

<snip>

Trump's 90 confirmed judges also have drawn criticism from Democrats and liberal interest groups because they are overwhelmingly white (92%) and male (76%).

At the critical appeals court level, where more than 50,000 cases are heard annually, Trump has replaced 23 judges named by Republican presidents and 12 named by Democrats.

Left leaning judges have been in control for too long, time for some reversal of whacky rulings.

Now if we can just get rid of RBG, and appoint a conservative there, that'll be doing something.

With rumors of Justice Thomas's retirement and if RGB leaves there will be some big fight.  It'll make the Kavenaugh hearings look like a tea party.

We have a short window here if the Republicans stick to the idea of not confirming during an election year.

I wake up every day and thank the Lord that Donald Trump was elected. None of this would be possible under Hillary. The Republic has been temporarily saved.

And, I go to sleep every night praying God will guide President Trump to make America the kind of country He wants it to be.

I agree mostly. Instead of how trump wants it to be I would say how our founding fathers intended it to be . IMO Trump is doing a good job. I think breaking up the swamp will really take more time than he will have in office. Imagine what we could accomplish if the politicians truly worked togeather to make America what it could be ! And that is not a place where exerything is “free” !
