Trump nominates, Senate panel approves a 36 year old blogger for lifetime appointment on the federal bench

44 posts in this topic

Brett J. Talley, President Trump’s nominee to be a federal judge in Alabama, has never tried a case, was unanimously rated “not qualified” by the American Bar Assn.’s judicial rating committee, has practiced law for only three years and, as a blogger last year, displayed a degree of partisanship unusual for a judicial nominee, denouncing “Hillary Rotten Clinton” and pledging support for the National Rifle Assn.

On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee, on a party-line vote, approved him for a lifetime appointment to the federal bench.

...When Trump took office in January, there were more than 100 vacant seats on the federal courts, thanks to an unprecedented slowdown engineered by McConnell during the final two years of President Obama’s term. The Senate under GOP control approved only 22 judges in that two-year period, the lowest total since 1951-52 in the last year of President Truman’s term. By contrast, the Senate under Democratic control approved 68 judges in the last two years of George W. Bush’s presidency.

Mitch McConnell and the GOP's destruction of our democratic traditions in their quest for absolute power, wielded by the incompetent. 

Maybe Senator Roy Moore can coach him in the nuances of breaking constitutional law.

Believe this is the first unanimous "not qualified" ABA ruling ever for a federal judhe. Hell think this is only the second "unqualified" rating period.

Well maybe he can watch some back episodes of Law and Order to familiarize himself with how a court room is set up.

Distinguishing him from the other nominees deemed "not qualified" by the ABA, Grasz and Goodwin.

A real life My Cousin Vinny! This presidency is a circus. We need to get Democrats back in control of Congress so we can have adults running the show. At least they can make Trump a lame duck.

Interesting article for some context:

Rating Shrink President's List for Judgeships

The American Bar Association has secretly declared a significant number of President Obama's potential judicial nominees as 'not qualified', slowing White House efforts to fill vacant judgeships...

The White House has chosen not to nominate any person the bar association deemed unqualified...

So I don't buy this 'the ABA is liberal' nonsense that we hear. There are plenty of conservatives with experience, appoint them and not people who are young just so they can be on the bench forever.

Of course you can name those that the ABA unanimous deemed as not qualified.

Well duh, you don't need great drivers for a demolition derby.

The right is doing all the damage to America they can before it's Mueller time.

It's going to get worse before it gets better.

This argument kind of withers when you consider that many of these positions are open because McConnell contrived to prevent Obama from naming judges in order to hold them open for judges aligned with conservative ideology.

The Republican Reich will last a thousand years.

Exactly.

Just another stupid decision.

Judge Talley will have the benefit of having forums like this one where he can find guidance and many knowledgeable legal and case references from our many posters.

I believe you are right. Although, probably not forums like this one. Too many lefties.

I'm beginning to think none of them understand what "conflict of interest" means.

So, you are OK to have someone with the only "qualification" is that he is on your team?

There should a better reason for making someone a judge other than for ideological reasons.

I mean, being unqualified and hurting the left aren't inseparable, are they? Lord, I hope not.

It is really telling that your only qualification is that it will hurt someone never mind the country.  Did you also mistreat pets as a child?
