There are currently over 100 vacancies on the benches of lower federal courts (appeals and district) , and many more are likely to open up due to the large number of older judges in these positions.
While the lower courts attract a fraction of the public’s attention, they represent most of the federal docket. Only 15 percent of cases ever move past a district court judge to the circuit courts. Of these, only a tiny fraction make their way to the Supreme Court.
Republicans don’t even need to go “nuclear” on these lower federal court nominations; the Democrats already did that in 2013.
The Republican majority can vote all these Trump appointees in as fast as they get nominated.

On Christmas Eve, 2016, this twit tweeted, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.”
Drexel University published an apology and he deleted the tweet, which he said had been a joke. Yeah, right.
Cuz genocide is always such a knee slapper and also those times he tweeted, “Abolish the White Race” and “We need more riots. Riots work.”
He’s white, in case you were curious.
Other responses to his latest vile tweet:
- He’s greater than you will ever hope to be. That’s what is triggering your gag reflex.
- His service gives you the ability to tweet absurd things like this.
- I bet those gross videos of soldiers coming home and surprising their kids just make your skin crawl, huh!?
- It must suck to be so bitter and resentful of men who’ve actually made a difference in this world.
- I hope some day you’ll come to be deeply ashamed of the man you are today.
- Imagine being a parent spending $42,000 to send your kid to Drexel.

Just ask them!
Meanwhile, their CEO Cecile Richards rakes in a MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR to pimp out baby killing and whine about how much poor women need her business to be taxpayer funded.
Her second in command clears $600K. In fact, Planned Parenthood’s top 12 highest paid employees each earn six-figure compensation totaling almost HALF A BILLION DOLLARS.
Officially, Planned Parenthood is a non-profit, but it certainly seems to be a major source of profit for the big wigs running the show.
FYI: The industry standard for non-profit administrators ranges from $62K for a CEO to $35K for a program coordinator.
Check out the swanky new DC facility Planned Parenthood just built.
I can’t watch this.
Undercover video: Planned Parenthood abortionist admits live-born babies are killed
A shocking new undercover video exposes a Planned Parenthood medical director admitting that babies born alive after abortion are sometimes killed.
Today is the first EVER National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Pardon my French, but it’s about frickin’ time!
THIS flag is flying for all Vietnam vets, but most especially for my brother.
Sen. Schumer said on ABC’s “This Week” that Democrats are willing to work with Republicans, as long as Republicans do what Democrats want. Clearly, they learned NOTHING from the trouncing they got in the last 4 elections.
