The Senate voted Tuesday to confirm Allison Jones Rushing, 37, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, making her the youngest federal judge in the country.

The Senate voted 53-44 to put Rushing into the lifetime court seat. Every Republican present voted for her. Every Democrat present opposed her.

If Pres. Trump would stick his neck out, risk everything, and do whatever it takes to institute an honest election system, including the use of the military, I think that all of this nonsense would go away. These people are lunatics and they only hold their positions because of voter fraud. Granted, there would be a few loons still in office but they would be the lunatic fringe and quite marginalized.

Yeah he11, she’d only be 117 in 2099.

And the corpse of RBG will still be on the court.

Exactly. Why do democrats hate strong women? As bird-brain AOC suggested, maybe they are afraid of her because she’s as powerful as those male liberal judges.

HuffPo’s thinks that “Life-time seat” for liberal judges is good. For American judges, bad.

That is acceptable. However, that does not remove the irresponsibility of the REPUB_CONTROLLED senate in slow-walking judgeships when they could approve them all. That is why many see most repubs as quislings , weak-sisters, capons...and worse.

‘Every Democrat present opposed her.”
Democrats always oppose those more intelligent and moral than they are.

Yep. I still have to wonder, if Trump nominated RBG for SCOTUS, would they vote no because they hate Trump.

I know this isn’t the whole picture. It actually makes the Turtle look likea stud at blocking libtard confirmations during prior administration.

Go Trump! Fill up those judicial posts!

“Every Democrat present opposed her.”
It’s getting to be a very common scenario.

But, of course, should there ever be another Democrat president, The Stupid Party will get in line to approve his nominees because it’s the “bipartisan” thing to do, and “a president is entitled to appoint who he wants.”


The Stupid Party ...

SPOT ON!

Assuming a Republican ever wins the presidency again.

Not so sure with the way things are changing.

Oh, it will happen. But by the time, the GOP and the culture will be so far to the left, it won’t matter. JFK would be a Republican today.

Why is called the beltway?

I-495 is the belt that encircles the city.

I do hope that people who claim that there is NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PARTIES understand what’s going on with these votes:

Even our WORST RINOS, Murkowski and Collins, along with the dozen or so other Rinos ALL VOTED FOR HER.

PLEASE THINK ABOUT IT, before you hand the Democrats seats in the Senate by sitting out elections, out of ‘principle’.
