Here Come the (Trump) Judges:

I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department
–Donald John Trump, 45th President of the U.S.

Readers may find that judging the judges is not the same as assessing candidates for elected office.

The Donald has every intention of continuing apace despite what anyone on the Hill has to say about the quality of his picks.

Our nation has stood for 242 years — not always tall, not always strong — in large part because we the people continue to give our consent to being governed. Seeding the courts with judges ill-qualified or of low character must now be considered the greatest long-term threat we now face, greater even than a changing climate.

The Constitution that I interpret and apply is not living but dead, or as I prefer to call it, enduring. It means today not what current society, much less the court, thinks it ought to mean, but what it meant when it was adopted.

With Gorsuch’s confirmation, Trump is one nomination away from shifting the balance of the bench to the right — no matter the slight leftward slide of individual justices over time.
