While the world is zeroed-in on the Democrats impeachment witch hunt, President Donald Trump continued to do his job.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has been trying his best to slow down President Donald Trump’s agenda and his breakneck pace of reshaping the judiciary, but they have failed spectacularly.
But he suffered a major loss this week — and he’s no doubt livid about this.
The GOP-controlled U.S. Senate has officially confirmed two more conservative judges nominated by Trump to serve on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees cases in the western part of the U.S.
This month, Judges Lawrence VanDyke and Patrick Bumatay were appointed by Trump.
The court, which was once dominated by liberals, now has more than a third of the president’s appointees.
Since taking office, Trump has replaced nine of 29 seats on the notoriously-liberal Ninth Circuit court.
Democratic-appointed judges now only hold a three-seat majority on the Ninth Circuit, compared to 11 at the start of Trump’s presidency.
This is just the latest example of how effective the president has been in his quest to reshape the federal judiciary.
Last Wednesday — the same day the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed both articles of impeachment against Trump — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pushed nearly a dozen federal judge nominees.
The Senate has confirmed just shy of 180 conservative judges since Trump took office.
The analysis shows that Trump is on pace to appoint 30 percent of all federal judges currently on the bench by the end of his first term.
If Trump wins re-election in 2020 and serves another four years — it’s more than likely that he will have appointed more than 50 percent of all federal judges when he leaves office in 2024.
And, most importantly, many of the judges are in their 40s and some in their 30s.
This means that these conservative judges will serve on the courts for many, many years.
Trump’s judicial appointments also include two Supreme Court justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
That’s certainly a historic accomplishment, and the Republican-controlled Senate is reshaping the federal courts across the country for decades to come.
And Trump may get a third Supreme Court nomination of Ruth Bader Ginsburg can’t make it another four years.
Beyond that, Schumer has been losing a lot lately on key battles. Below are a few examples:
–Senate Dems Defy Schumer, Voted 56-38 To Confirm Trump Official
–House Voted 301-123; Chuck Schumer’s Plan Backfired
–Senate Vote On Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Goes Down In Flames
