So what’s doing with federal judicial appointments?

You don’t want to know.

Yes, you do. More soft ‘n’ fuzzy diaper ads and stacking the federal courts with lifetime appointments for radicals who in no way represent the views and values of the majority of us.

These items can be categorized as: the American war on women; voting rights; the war on workers, the Koch Bros (who supply a lot of the money for the TV ads) Final Solution to Democracy, and a lot more.

From 538 Significant Digits:

$7.5 million in television ads

The Senate confirmation hearings for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, are set to begin early next month, and conservatives are dramatically outspending liberals in an advertisement war targeting “vulnerable” senators. Conservative have spent more than $7.5 million on ads, while liberals have spent about $1.3 million. The heavily targeted senators include Democrats Doug Jones in Alabama, Joe Manchin in West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Joe Donnelly in Indiana, as well as Republicans Susan Collins in Maine and Lisa Murkowski in Alaska.

26 new judges

President Trump has already placed 26 new judges on federal courts, more than any other president by this point in their tenure. Trump has also nominated over 100 district-court judges; 26 of them have been confirmed. “These judges are overwhelmingly young, ideological and now set to serve lifetime appointments,” wrote Rolling Stone.
