Trump's stealth victory: Reshaping the courts

With less than two years under his belt, President Trump has managed to make a substantial imprint on the U.S. judicial system — one that could be felt for decades to come — by getting the Senate to confirm key judicial nominees.

The fundamental shift has come even as Republicans grumble that Democrats are slow-walking the process in the Senate. Democrats have been demanding maximum debate time for many of Trump's picks, but even with that obstacle, the courts aren't lacking for Trump nominees.

“What President Trump has done with judicial selection and appointments is probably at the very center of his legacy, and may well be his greatest accomplishments thus far,” Leonard Leo, an outside adviser to the White House on judicial selection and executive vice president of the Federalist Society, told the Washington Examiner.

I am sure we will all regret this. Judicial activism at its worst.

You think it will let America move closer to being a Christian Theocracy instead of a Secular Republic.

It won't. It will open the gates up to other less tolerant, more aggressive religions to start getting a foot hold into our society. Mark my words this is not good for ANYONE.
