Obama’s terrifying admission: ‘We are remaking the courts’

Elena+Kagan+Sonia+Sotomayor+New+Supreme+Court

At a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee fundraiser in Dallas Wednesday night, the president confirmed what the public has known all along — that he is remaking the courts in his own image.

Associated Press White House reporter Josh Lederman tweeted Thursday:

According to the White House Press Office, his full remarks on the courts were:

As Lisa mentioned, we are remaking the courts. I know that we’ve got some lawyers here, and here in Texas sometimes people feel a little frustrated about the pace of appointments here in Texas. But you should know that in addition to the Supreme Court, we’ve been able to nominate and confirm judges of extraordinary quality all across the country on federal benches. We’re actually, when it comes to the district court, matching the pace of previous presidents. When it comes to the appellate court, we’re just a little bit behind, and we’re just going to keep on focused on it.

Lederman’s tweet let loose an avalanche of replies, including:

court1

court2

court3

And finally a chilling prediction:

court4

The president has made two Supreme Court appointments, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. The real story, however, is his lower court appointments.

Obama has appointed, and the Senate confirmed, 39 judges to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and 168 to the federal District Court system, according to Wikipedia.

Everyone’s attention is always concentrated on the Supreme Court, but the lower courts are where all the action is. If a judge, or a panel of judges, make a boneheaded ruling, most litigants let it go. They seldom have the time, funds and wherewithal to take it further, so the ruling becomes law for that circuit or district.

Here’s one bright spot, however. U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has vowed to hold up all nominations until the White House comes clean on events surrounding the terrorist attack on our foreign mission in Benghazi.

We’ll see. In the meantime, the president continues to fundamentally transform the United States of America.
