Trump & Republicans Appointing Unqualified Judges

Trump nominee for federal judge has never tried a case

Trump nominated Brett J. Talley, a 36 year old blogger who has practiced law for three years, has never tried a case and who thinks Hillary Clinton should be Jailed, for a lifetime appointment on the Federal Bench.

 

Every single one of these Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve the nomination of the 36 year old blogger with no trial experience. It’s bad enough that Trump nominated this guy, but it’s reasonable to expect Senators, most of whom are lawyers to provide some checks and balances from incompetent and inexperienced people being hired and employed in key positions.

This more proof Republicans are unqualified to be in positions of power.

Republicans Confirm Judge Rated ‘Not Qualified’ For Being ‘Lazy,’ ‘Arrogant’

TAKE ACTION: Protect Our Courts

Tell Senators Cortez Masto and Rosen to vote ‘NO’ on Lawrence VanDyke for the 9th Circuit!

Per the above petition; President Trump has nominated former Nevada Solicitor General, Lawrence VanDyke, for a lifetime judgeship on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Last month, the American Bar Association took the rare step of rating VanDyke as “unqualified,” noting colleagues of his who were interviewed consistently gave this description: “arrogant, lazy, an ideologue and lacking in knowledge of the day-to-day practice, including procedural rules. There was a theme that the nominee lacks humility, has an ‘entitlement’ temperament, does not have an open mind, and does not always have a commitment to being candid and truthful.” Furthermore, they were concerned “about whether Mr. VanDyke would be fair to persons who are gay, lesbian or otherwise part of the LGBTQ community.”

VanDyke has a long history of extremist anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and actions. As a student at Harvard Law School, he wrote an op-ed claiming same-sex marriage would “hurt families and consequentially children and society.” At his hearing, VanDyke was provided with an opportunity to address his previous statements regarding same-sex marriage, specifically as to whether same-sex marriage damaged children. He pointedly refused to answer. VanDyke also refused to respond to Senators’ inquiries as to his legal approach to the intersection of LGBTQ rights and religious liberty. Emails from him reveal a Solicitor General who had little interest in engaging in the daily tasks of the office and instead an ideologue committed to advancing a political agenda.

 

 

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh may have escaped the kind of scrutiny that was warranted for a SCOTUS judge during his confirmation, but that doesn’t mean that he’s off the hook. Calls of his impeachment became deafening this past weekend after new allegations came out in the form of a lengthy New York Times investigation. If these allegations are true, then Kavanaugh committed perjury during his confirmation and can be impeached.

Brett Kavanaugh Is a Lifelong Republican Operative and Will Rule Like One

WASHINGTON-So, at the end of a long and noisy and farcical day, Judge Brett Kavanaugh finally got to tell the Senate Judiciary Committee what a great guy he is. It was not impressive.
