End Of Filibuster Brings First Of Many Radical Judges
Investors.com ^ | December 10, 2013 | IBD Editorial

Nuclear Option: The first spoil of Harry Reid's shredding of the Senate's historic filibuster rules has been confirmed to the D.C. Circuit. Patricia Millett is another radical activist masquerading as judge.

As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1990, now-Vice President Joseph Biden threw a fit after it was clear David Souter was going to be confirmed to the Supreme Court, warning the first Bush administration that no more "stealth" nominees would be getting through.

Liberals threw an even bigger fit the next year when Clarence Thomas told Biden's committee he had no "personal opinion on the outcome in Roe v. Wade."

But Souter and Thomas' non-candor before the committee pales in comparison to the balderdash peddled by Patricia Millett.

As Carrie Severino noted in National Review earlier this year, when Sen. Ted Cruz, R.-Texas, asked Millett under oath to "describe how you would characterize your judicial philosophy, and identify which U.S. Supreme Court justice's judicial philosophy from the Warren, Burger, or Rehnquist Courts is most analogous with yours," Millett handed the U.S. Senate pure falsity.

"I cannot claim familiarity with any particular judicial philosophies the justices might possess," the Clinton Justice Department veteran who has argued 32 cases before the Supreme Court, contended. "Nor do I have a judicial philosophy myself."

Once these “Judges” take over there will be no need for congress. Obama will do whatever he pleases and the courts will approve it. Sayonara USA!

Yep, lifetime appointments. If we don’t take back the senate next year it’ll be over and it may be too late even then.

If the Republicans are to regain some independence from the parent Democrat Party, then if (an unlikely if) they get control of the Senate and the Presidency in 2016, they must impeach and remove a host of the Obama post-rule change judges.They will all be impeachable. By then any who have been Judging for more than 30 days will have shown themselves to be totally wide of the Constitution and thereby impeachable. If they allow this court packing to stand then it won’t matter what they have won.

geez... i am typing worse than usual today (up for 24 hours straight)

here is whatr I MEANT to say:

If we evder get control back of Congress we need to remove each and every one of them

Eliminate their districts if needed, impeach if necessary, whatever it takes. And with a simpel 51 majority.

THEN removes some more and put the rules back the way they were

Well said by you both, it’s what has to be done.

With sane people in Congress this wouldn’t have come about in the first place but insanity seems to be the norm.

The ranks of the prostitutes and pimps are going to be decimated with them all moving up to these “judge” jobs.

Another idea I came across is to add conservative judgeships to this circuit court to dilute the commie judges’ influence.

During the 2011 Libyan civil war, a goodly number of elitist, radical judges were hanged from lampposts, and nobody misses them. This upset elitists all over the world, and nobody cares.
