This is good news BUT....Before we get all excited about what a wonder job is being done filling Judicial vacancies, please consider the following OFFICIAL US GOVERNMENT information.

............................... JANUARY 2017: 115th Congress Begins — DONALD TRUMP BECOMES PRESIDENT

890 authorized judgeships with 112 ACTUAL VACANCIES (12.58%)

https://www.uscourts.gov/judges-judgeships/judicial-vacancies/archive-judicial-vacancies/2017/01/summary .....................................

JANUARY 2019: 115th Congress Ends — 116th Congress Begins (LINDSAY GRAHAM BECOMES CHAIR of Judiciary Committee)

890 authorized judgeships with 144 ACTUAL VACANCIES (16.17%)

https://www.uscourts.gov/judges-judgeships/judicial-vacancies/archive-judicial-vacancies/2019/01/summary

........................................... MARCH 5, 2019: TODAY

890 authorized judgeships with 153 ACTUAL VACANCIES (17.19%) See NOTE below.

https://www.uscourts.gov/judges-judgeships/judicial-vacancies/archive-judicial-vacancies/2019/03/summary

NOTE: Trump Nominees Alison Jones Rushing and Chad Readler who were voted on today (March 5th) were nominated NOT to replace incumbents who were on the list of 153 ACTUAL VACANCIES but to replace two incumbents on the list of 17 KNOWN FUTURE VACANCIES. Those two incumbent judges will move from ACTIVE status to SENIOR status once replacements are confirmed and ready to take office.

Here’s the KNOWN FUTURE VACANCIES list:

https://www.uscourts.gov/judges-judgeships/judicial-vacancies/future-judicial-vacancies

************************************************************************* For comparison purposes, the below shows the VACANCY Status at the end of GW Bush’s presidency.

JANUARY 2009: BUSH Presidency ends — Obama Presidency begins.

875 authorized judgeships with 53 ACTUAL VACANCIES (6.05%) with 26 Nominees Pending

Instead of today’s UNACCEPTABLE vacancy rate of 17.19% TRUMP and the SLOW-WALKING LINDSEY GRAHAM & US SENATE should strive to URGENTLY REDUCE THE VACANCY RATE to a more acceptable ONGOING rate of NO MORE THAN 5 or 6 percent. Republicans need to get serious and move faster, They also need to end the practice of allowing BLUE SLIPS TO BLOCK DISTRICT COURT NOMINEES.

“Every Republican present voted for her. Every Democrat present opposed her.”

This is all I know about Allison Jones Rushing. It’s really all I need to know.

I like her.

MAGA!

"Like most of President Donald Trump’s court picks, Rushing is also a member of the conservative Federalist Society, which has been driving Trump’s judicial selection process and funneling anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ nominees to the White House. [...]

"The Senate is voting on two more circuit court nominees this week, both of whom, like Rushing, are young, ideological and Federalist Society members. [...]

"Trump is dramatically reshaping the nation’s federal courts. With Rushing’s confirmation, he has now gotten 32 circuit judges, 53 district judges and two Supreme Court justices confirmed. That’s so many circuit judges ― more than any other president confirmed by this point in his first term ― that 1 in 6 seats on U.S. circuit courts is now filled by a judge nominated by Trump."

FDR appointed William O Douglas to the Supreme Court when he (Douglas) was but 40. He went on to serve for 36 years, the longest tenure on the Court, and one of the most damaging.

This news is so good. It is worth repeating~!

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

She worked for Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian organization that has been classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. She has argued that there were “moral and practical” reasons for banning same-sex marriage.

If Trump gets nothing none but tax cuts, EOs and judges his Presidency will have been a success.

GWBush was so dissappointing in this, of which DJT is not.

How long until the deep state gets to her and she starts to veer left of center?

Sorry, I know nothing about this woman’s record. I do know that women tend to skew left much more readily than men, being ruled by emotions.

Not going to celebrate just yet.

Huff post?! Yes, the horror. She had strong beliefs and abides by them. The SLPC label’s are so meaningless now. They would regard the Boy Scouts as a hate group I am sure.

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