Remember, Trump nominated 274 people to federal judgeships. Then he appointed 245 federal judges, including three Supreme Court Justices.
In fact, one of the biggest aspect’s of Trump’s legacy will be his influence in shaping the federal court system with his nominees and appointees. Leftists will have a hard time holding up their legislation against Trump’s legal eagles.
In other words, Trump may not be in the Oval Office, but his influence is still felt far and wide. And while conservatism may be under attack, it is well represented in the judicial branch.
Trump appointed 54 federal appellate judges in four years, one short of the 55 Obama appointed in twice as much time. In the process, Trump “flipped” the balance of several appeals courts from a majority of Democratic appointees to a majority of Republican appointees.
Trump also had a major influence on the nation’s highest court. The three Supreme Court justices he appointed – Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – are the most by any president since Ronald Reagan (who appointed four) and the most by any one-term president since Herbert Hoover (though Richard Nixon appointed four in his first four years in office).
Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett are all age 55 or younger. A Pew Research Center analysis in 2017 found that past justices who were appointed to the court when they were 55 or younger ended up serving for an average of nearly two decades.
Never have conservative judges been more fundamental to the daily running of America. The White House is a cluster you-know-what. So, we are forced to rely on our judicial system to keep Biden from decimating the country completely.
Our latest judicial savior is U.S. District Judge Robert R. Summerhays. One of many Trump appointees, Summerhays just made a bold move to hep control our border crisis. The Louisiana judge granted the motion to block ending Trump’s border rule known as Title 42. The motion was brought by 21 states with Republican governors. According to Summerhays, all parties “will confer regarding the specific terms to be contained” in the TRO and “attempt to reach agreement.”
Title 42 has been used nearly 2 million times to block entry into the US. It was a measure issued under Trump by the CDC during the scamdemic to keep covid at bay. Of course covid isn’t the real enemy. But border security continues to boil over. Our president’s open border policies prove he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the well-being of our country. So, what can we do, other than wait for 2024 to arrive? We can sue the son of a b#&@$!
That’s where Trump’s judicial footprint comes in so handy. Summerhays just ruled that Title 42 stands, at least for now.
Obviously, Biden doesn’t have a plan for border security. He’s willing to let millions of illegals cross the border, costing our country billions each year. But, if Summerhays can halt Biden from opening the flood gates, where else can Trump judges stop Biden’s agenda from rolling out?
Further, what investigations will land in Trump’s judicial safety zone? Will Durham offer his evidence to a Trump judge? Better yet, will Hillary Clinton be forced to face a Trump judge?
The possibilities are endless. Which is pretty exciting considering Democrats thought they rid the country of the orange man, but they forgot one thing. Trump left enough judges in place to keep his agenda alive for decades. And that’s something leftists can’t change, no matter how many times they cheat at the ballot box.
