The Senate just removed every single one and President Donald Trump is grinning. Liberals Democrats are furious about this news, but patriotic Americans have welcomed it. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his Republican colleagues have made history.
Cory Wilson, a judge on the Mississippi Court of Appeals, has become President Trump’s 200th nominee to be confirmed to a federal judgeship. Before voting, McConnell noted that “there will not be a single circuit-court vacancy anywhere in the nation for the first time in at least 40 years.”
Regardless of what happens in November, this is something Democrats cannot undo. Each of Trump’s 200 nominees were confirmed to life appointments, with Wilson joining the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. This is nothing short of a miracle.
It is also why Republicans must retain the Senate. The ability to confirm or deny judicial nominees is one of the most powerful roles in our federal government, and it is a powerful Democrats should never hold — especially since at least one member of the Supreme Court could be leaving soon.
Rumors continue to swirl about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s future. The 87-year-old justice has faced several health challenges in recent years and may be looking for an exit. Some speculate that she is waiting to see what happens with this year’s election.
Trump getting the opportunity to nominate a replacement for Ginsburg would cement the Supreme Court’s conservative bent and affect major cases involving every aspect of American life for a generation. Joe Biden cannot be allowed anywhere near the White House.
