Methinks the Courts are a lost cause, along with the Rule of Law.

Meet Brett J. Talley, nominated by President Donald Trump to the Federal District Court in Montgomery, Alabama for a LIFETIME appointment. He is 34 years old, been a lawyer for three years, has never tried a case, is married to a White House lawyer, and has been graded as unqualified by the American Bar Association. He ran a "Hate Hillary, Hate Democrats" type website.

He also has a fervent interest in investigating and writing about paranormal activities.

 

Imagine taking your legal case before this partisan, inexperienced, ghostbuster idiot with extreme conflicts of interest?? Though I'm sure all pedophiles will be given the benefit of the doubt.


This is a perfect example of how Republicans respect the rule of law. and proof positive THEY are the party of activist judges..that take away your freedom.

So it begins.

More Stolen Courts!

If winning at politics is their sole goal, one has to give the GOP credit.  Not so much, however, if their goal includes retaining democracy.

 

Righties are superb at coming up with strategies to force their fascist ideology onto an unwilling majority.  The theft in seating Goresuch to SCOTUS is the most egregious judicial example but it's not the only one plus we're all aware of the GOP's attacks on voters' rights. 

 

Regarding the Courts, the SCOTUS theft wasn't enough for them.  They had already blocked the voting majority's choices for lower courts by refusing to consider Obama nominees, thus handing the vacancies to Trump. 

 

From today's NY Times:   "Republicans are systematically filling appellate seats they held open during President Barack Obama’s final two years in office with a particularly conservative group of judges with life tenure."   

 

Below shows the composition of the the important regional courts of appeals and how easily Trump and a criminal GOP Congress can dominate them.
