Patrick Bumatay is the second openly gay person to be nominated by Trump to be a federal judge.
President Donald Trump recently announced another wave of judicial nominees, and among them is an openly gay conservative, Patrick Bumatay.
Trump nominated Bumatay to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, based in San Francisco, the nations largest federal appeals court. It hears cases from nine Western states and has 29 judges; there are currently six vacancies.
Bumatay is an assistant U.S. attorney in California handling various criminal issues, including opioid abuse and transnational organized crime, according to the White House. He went to Yale and Harvard Law School, and the White House said Bumatay is a member of the National Filipino American Lawyers Association, the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association and the Tom Homann LGBT Law Association.
Bumatay is the second openly gay person Trump has nominated for the federal bench, according to the Washington Blade. The first was Mary Rowland, a magistrate judge who Trump nominated to be on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in June; she is waiting to be confirmed by the Senate....

Any improvement to the 9th Circuit is HUGH.
I cannot help but think Trump is a tactical genius. Though I don't approve of faggotry, I recognize that this is a tactic meant to appease the constituency of that kook city in California.
This will be interesting to see how they play it. We can ask:
Are you against this nominee because they are of Philippine heritage?
Are you against this nominee because they are homosexual?
Are you against this nominee because they are asian?
Are you against this nominee because male and gay?
Or, are you just against this nominee because they aren’t leftist democrat?
AND, Are you against this nominee because THEY LEFT THE PLANTATION?
RE: Though I don’t approve of faggotry, I recognize that this is a tactic meant to appease the constituency of that kook city in California.
Here’s the question -— Will this gay judge UPHOLD religious freedom?
Suppose a case like Masterpiece Cake came to the 9th circuit, how will he decide? Will he base it on the First Amendment, or will he base it on his own personal proclivities?
Anybody know this person?
This is smart politics. Feinstein and Harris are on record opposing the guy, so, in California it will not set well with many “LGBT” who are NOT LGBT activists seeking to tow the totally Leftist line.
“openly homosexual conservative” is pretty much oxymoronic.
There ARE MANY gay PUBBIES Tammy Bruce is one that I am VERY HAPPY to have on our side!!! This was a good move on Trumps part!!!
Not really. Most of us (and most conservatives through history) haven’t given a damn what a person does in the privacy of their own home. It’s only after they started telling us all they needed special privileges and became missionaries for homosexuality that we objected.
“Homosexual” and “missionary” may be oxymoronic however.
Do all homosexuals and transvestites assert without any scientific genetic proof that homosexuality and being trans is an immutable trait, not merely a choice or perversion, that qualifies them for protection against discrimination under the US Constitution?
Right demographics to add to the Ninth Circus...
Another is the tech & private capital investment billionaire that helped start PayPal.

We have an issue here.... the issue of “protection against discrimination”.
The problem here is RELIGION ( which is EXPLICITLY PROTECTED IN THE FIRST, Note, THE FIRST, Amendment ), be it Christian, Muslim, Hindu or what not, considers homosexuality and its acts sins, or perversions.
Given two opposing views, which one should the constitution protect when the views clash?
IMHO, protection against discrimination applies only to protection against exploitation, work discrimination, harassment, etc. In other words, CIVIL RIGHTS have to be protected.
However, religious beliefs ought to be protected too. The law cannot COERCE and FORCE someone to provide a service their conscience and deeply held religious beliefs forbids them to.
They call this gay man a conservative.... I hope he lives up to the label.
I don’t care who he dates, I care about his understanding and interpretation of the Constitution of the United States.
The Democrats obviously are racist against Filipinos.
100% agreed. I dont care what he does in privacy with consenting ADULTS, as long as he follows the constitution and rule of law and doesnt legislate from the bench. I really dont think PDJT would approve of this appointment if he didnt know this guy would be conservative.
Rememberhow sympathetic Pres.REagan was to his friend, Rock Hudson? Even if this men having sex with men stuff is a deadly perversion,they are still human beings; albeit human beings with a dangerous sex addiction.
No comment on the name.
How many did Reagan and the two Bushes appoint?
