A bastion of liberalism in the federal judiciary is slowly turning rightward, threatening Democratic court challenges on everything from abortion to who gets a green card.

The Senate confirmation of Lawrence VanDyke and Patrick Bumatay to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this month brought to nine the number of appointments President Donald Trump has made to the 29-member bench that serves as the last stop for nearly all legal complaints lodged in nine Western states.

Democratic-appointed judges now hold a three-seat majority, compared with 11 at the start of Trump's presidency.

If the trend continues, it represents a major shift in the liberal wing of the judiciary, meaning lawsuits for progressive causes won’t find a friendly ear as easily as they have.

The circuit has been the go-to venue for activist state attorneys eager to freeze Trump policies on health care, immigration and other social issues.

It ruled against Trump's weakening of Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, as well as multiple versions of his travel ban.

Here's yet another example of why the lefts "crying wolf" mentality regarding anything Trump related hurts them - and kills their credibility.

The American Bar Association’s (ABA) standing committee on the judiciary released its evaluation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Friday, awarding him a unanimous “well-qualified” rating. The ABA panel issues its evaluation based on a variety of measures including integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament.

 

Keep getting as many young, Conservative judges in the system Mr. POTUS, this is the single biggest reason why I voted for you - and I heartily approve of this accomplishment.
