One thing is certain with the presidency of Donald Trump. The good is really good and the bad is really bad. Just consider some of the big news recently. Some of it is wonderful and some of it is terrible. And all of it is related to President Trump.
On August 29, the Huffington Post bemoaned, “Democrats Just Confirmed Lots Of Trump’s Judges So They Could Skip Town. The resistance wilts in August.”
According to the article by Jennifer Bendery and Igor Bobic, “Senate Democrats just gave a huge gift to President Donald Trump: They agreed to expedite votes on 15 of his nominees to lifetime federal court seats because they wanted to go home.”
The implications of this are massive: “It’s a major win for Trump and McConnell, whose No. 1 priority is filling up federal courts with conservative judges ― many of whom are incredibly anti-abortion, anti–LGBTQ rights and anti–voting rights. Trump has gotten 26 circuit court judges confirmed, more than any other president at this point in his term. Another way of putting it: 1 in 7 U.S. circuit court seats is now filled by a judge nominated by Trump.”
Add in the pending nomination of Justice Kavanagh, and “you’ve got a president drastically reshaping the nation’s courts for generations.”
This alone would be a an incredible accomplishment for the president. This alone would merit the votes of many a conservative American. Talk about leaving a positive legacy.
But that was just one piece of big, positive news. (Shall we label it “huge”?)
The president also called out the social media giants, accusing them of unfairness towards conservatives. How many leaders have the gumption to do that? And who better to tackle such a massive issue than the President of the United States, with the help of Congress?
Also this week, Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the United Nations, publicly questioned “Palestinian claims to a ‘right of return’ to modern Israel, saying she believed that the hot button issue should be taken ‘off the table.'”
This is something that should have been done years ago, since talk about the “right of return” not only hinders the peace process, but it has no legitimacy at all.
