The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has had a liberal slant for as long as we can remember.
But that dramatically changed this week when Steven Menashi was confirmed as a Second Circuit judge in a 51–41 vote by the Senate, according to the Washington Examiner.
Turning the tide
A major priority for Donald Trump when he took office was to fill many of the vacant judicial seats with conservatives.
A major mistake made by Barack Obama, while he was in office, was to allow many of these seats to remain open. Liberals could have owned the courts for decades had he filled these bench seats, but he did not.
Now, Trump has appointed more than four dozen judges — and he is hardly done yet.
Some of his most important appointments were on the Second Circuit Court, which has been notoriously left-slanted for years. Before Trump flipped the Second Circuit, he did the same with the Third Circuit Court.
Next up on the agenda is the 11th Circuit Court, a change that reportedly will happen very soon. The Senate currently has the nominations of Robert Luck and Barbara Logoa on deck for that circuit– and if both are approved, that court will be leveled off.
The Ninth Circuit Court has also significantly changed, and while it still has a liberal slant, it is far more balanced now than it has ever been in recent history.
The sad state of the Judiciary
Honestly, it is sad that this is even an issue. Politics are not supposed to enter into the judiciary, but these days, that happens far more often than not.
Just go down the line of decisions that have gone before liberal judges. You will be hard-pressed to find any ruling that was in favor of Trump.
Nobody here is asking for biased rulings, just fair ones — and that is something liberals judges seem unable to be able to do these days.
Trump has done this country a huge service by appointing a slew of young, fair, and Constitution-focused judges to the nation’s courts.
