Of all the historic victories of the Trump administration, none might be hated more by the left than his judicial appointments. He’s already appointed hundreds of conservative judges to federal courts nationwide. Now, thanks to the president, the most left-wing court in the country has been altered for years to come. And Trump is celebrating his success.
Let’s be honest, the impact of Trump’s presidency will be felt well beyond his years in office. Even when he leaves (in 2024), his leadership, policies, and success will be having an effect for a long time. Perhaps for the rest of our lives. Few presidents will come close to achieving what Trump has done in just three years.
But one of his biggest victories is rarely talked about by the liberal media. Sure, they downplay most of his accomplishments, but many of them–including record low unemployment–can’t be ignored. One achievement that they try to not focus on will affect Americans for another 30 years: judge appointments.
It might not sound sexy, but the judges Trump appoints will decide cases that impact all of our lives. It’s no secret that the left has abused the court systems for decades to force their progressive agenda down our throats.
When they don’t have the votes in Congress (or support of Americans), they rely on radical activist judges to get their way. Their rulings are much harder to overturn that legislation, even when conservatives enter office.
Why did you think they took Roe v. Wade all the way to the Supreme Court?
Thanks to Trump–and a diehard Senate Majority Leader named Mitch–Democrats had to watch as their evil master plan went up in flames. Trump continues to appoint Constitutionally-minded, conservative judges to key seats on federal courts. That includes a big circuit court of appeals, which sees more cases than the Supreme Court.
Now, even the media admits this one massive victory.
When President Trump ticks off his accomplishments since taking office, he frequently mentions his aggressive makeover of a key sector of the federal judiciary — the circuit courts of appeal, where he has appointed 51 judges to lifetime jobs in three years.
In few places has the effect been felt more powerfully than in the sprawling 9th Circuit, which covers California and eight other states. Because of Trump’s success in filling vacancies, the San Francisco-based circuit, long dominated by Democratic appointees, has suddenly shifted to the right, with an even more pronounced tilt expected in the years ahead.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has long had a reputation of being the most left-wing, progressive court in the country. This huge court ruled on cases that affected every last American. And thanks to its decades-long liberal majority, it ruled in the left’s favor.
Even when we had conservative presidents, they’d appoint judges recommended by California senators, in a tradition promptly rejected by Trump. Now, the court–and many others across the country–can no only be used by Democrats to force their socialist plans onto the country.
The president himself reminded the country of just how many judges he’s already appointed since taking office.
Obama-appointed Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor recently complained about Trump’s judges having a “conservative agenda.” Oh really, Sonia? You weren’t too upset when liberal judges pushed Obama’s agenda. I guess it’s only a problem when judges see eye-to-eye with Trump, huh?
Democrats are panicking because there’s no end in sight. Trump will continue to fill vacancies, with help from Sen. McConnell. And with Sanders most-likely winning their nomination, they’re looking at four more years of Trump reshaping the judiciary.
We could be looking at the death of the progressive movement, one new judge at a time.
Can’t say it’s a day earlier.
