Guardian: "The rightwing takeover of the US court system will transform America"

Remember when Barry Hussein wanted to "fundamentally transform America"? Now we have a real President and a real transformation:

The rightwing takeover of the US court system will transform America

Paul Butler

The claim that Trump has not accomplished much in his first year in office is dead wrong. He is fashioning the federal court system of Steve Bannon’s dreams. The president has nominated judges who will cut back the civil rights of racial minorities and LGBT people, expand the power of police and prosecutors, restrict the ability of women to obtain abortions and favor big corporations over consumers.

Trump took office facing a backlog of 114 judicial appointments – the most of any president since Bill Clinton. This was not a coincidence but rather the product of a calculated project by Republicans in the US Congress to deny Barack Obama his authority to appoint judges. In a bold power play, Senate Republicans, who must confirm judicial nominees, simply refused to vote on most of Obama’s selections during the last year of his presidency. They were, in effect, waiting for Trump.

You can start with the notes from the original Constitutional Convention, other writings and words of those very wise men too. It just can't be answered on a MB.
I'm not trying to take a shot at you here, but I have always felt that if you can't articulate a high-level summary of a topic in a few sentences that are free of technical jargon, that's an indication that you don't have a clear understanding of the topic.

I won't attempt to give a high-level summary of this topic, because I don't have a clear understanding of the motivations of the founding fathers for lifetime appointments. There's no shame there. Nobody knows everything.

Not being an ass, I am curious about the founders reasoning.
To keep judges free to make unpopular decisions without fear of what was "popular" with the public that year.

Trump doesn't have the brainpower to make any cogent decisions. He strictly goes with what the last person he talks to tells him.

This is NOT court packing. This is what is called "packing the courts:"

court packing

noun, U.S. History.
1.
an unsuccessful attempt by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937 to appoint up to six additional justices to the Supreme Court, which had invalidated a number of his New Deal laws.

And it's the left that does not believe in being "chained by the words of the Constitution" far more than the conservative right.

Your disinformation/misinformation is endless.

No he doesn't. He's willing to hear out all sides, being naturally curious, but if he gets all the information that is true information and not false, he usually makes the right decision. In the end he makes his own decisions.

Very true. I skip over almost all of his posts because they're filled with nonsense. Endless.

Yes. Thank heavens for Mitch McConnell, the courageous champion of a conservative judiciary. And for Donald Trump, who has been outstanding in this respect so far (and hasn't sold us out yet).

The board would benefit if all posters completely ceased to respond to that poster.

I don't trust a thing he says and I think he's earned that. He says obviously false things all the time without shame and sometimes even contradicts himself within the same speech if not within the same breath. It is beyond belief, IMO, that he's actually an ideological conservative and without that ideological underpinning, there's no reason to believe he'll remain loyal to the cause.

So far, so good. In many ways, very good. But that can still all change.

As we have established 2 years ago, your definition of "conservative" is very different from mine, and others.

The fact that democrats hate him so much that they'll probably try to impeach him if they do manage to win a Congressional majority helps comfort me that he'll be forced to stick with his Republican coalition.
