(PatrioticPost.com)- In what may or may not be the final months of the Trump administration, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly ploughing head with the confirmation of more conservative judges. It continues the Trump administration’s work confirming hundreds of judges over the last four years, and could potentially help fight back against far-left radicalism over the next four years if Joe Biden really does become the next president.
According to the Daily Wire, the Senate has already confirmed a further six district court nominees since the election on November 3, and McConnell has also indicated that he wants to confirm more judges to replace the positions vacated by Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett. McConnell will also confirm a judge to replace Judge Juan R. Torruela of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit who recently passed away. Torruela was originally appointed by conservative President Ronald Reagan and made history by being the first Hispanic appointee to the court.
But the Republicans are racist, right?
Torruela is expected to be replaced by Raúl M. Arias-Marxuach, a judge who was nominated in May 2019 to the federal bench and confirmed in a 95-3 vote in the Senate to take up the new seat. President Donald Trump also nominated Thomas L. Kirsch II to replace Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett on her old seat.
During the week of November 16, a further five Article III judges were also confirmed by the senate, showing that McConnell has no intention of slowing down. Those new judges were Stephen Vaden, Kathryn Mizelle, Kristi Johnson, Benjamin Beaton, and Toby Crouse.
On November 12, Judge Aileen Cannon was also confirmed.
The confirmation of new judges is important not just because there is a risk of Biden becoming the next president, but because the January Georgia senate runoffs will determine which party controls the Senate. If Biden wins the presidency and the Democrats win the two Senate seats in Georgia, it could mean that far-left radicals have total control over the American government.
McConnell warned in a radio interview at the end of October that the Democrats taking control of the government could mean the packing of the Supreme Court.
“This Supreme Court-packing issue has been around all year long, and of course, there would be no oversight at all, as you suggest, of any scandals or anything that might reflect badly on the Democratic administration if there is a Democratic majority,” he said. “Now the solution to this is 51 Republican senators. The one thing the majority leader can do that others cannot do in the Senate is to decide what we’re going to do, to set the agenda.”
If the Democrats manage to take the Senate and the presidency, McConnell’s hard work in the courts could be the Republican’s only line of defense.
