MAJOR PROGRESS! Trump Flips Control Of Federal Appeals Court
On Tuesday President Trump was able to turn the tables and flip the first federal appeals court to a Republican majority.
The flip comes after the Senate confirmed Judge Paul Matey to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Matey was confirmed by a vote of 54-46 with only one Democrat voting along with all the Republican Senators supporting him. Not really a surprise there since all the Democrats care about is doing the opposite of what Americans and Republicans want.
According to The Daily Wire,
Yesterday, the U.S. Senate confirmed, by a 54-45 vote, Paul Matey to be a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The Third Circuit has federal appellate jurisdiction for the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. With the confirmation of Matey, the Third Circuit becomes the first of the 13 federal appellate circuits to “flip” control under President Donald Trump from majority Democratic nominees to majority Republican nominees.
This is a big step in moving in the right direction and making progress, but we can’t stop here. Trump is going to need the support of every conservative to win the election next year.
USA Today reports,
Senate confirmation of Paul Matey to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, with jurisdiction over Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, gave Trump and his GOP predecessors in the White House a 7-6 majority there. …
Matey, 48, a former top counsel to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, became Trump’s 35th appeals court nominee to reach the bench with seven more pending, continuing a record pace. The Senate also has confirmed 53 of Trump’s picks for federal district courts, with another 54 nominees pending.
Anytime there is an opening to fill a position or a majority position with someone with moral and conservative values, it’s a good thing. We definitely do not want any more Democratic majorities anywhere. The House is bad enough and honestly, it may not last long. I think there is a HUGE waking among the nation finally. People are really beginning to see that they’ve been tricked and lied to by the left for decades.
