One of the best reasons to choose Mr. Trump over Hillary Clinton was Supreme Court Justices. And the proof is in the judicial pudding. Trump’s got two and is poised for a third. Not that we’d ever wish ill on the Notorious RBG. But the lady needs to think of her health before the whimsy of her left-wing fan-base.
While President Trump is waiting on his SCOTUS hat trick the White House just released a list of 51 nominees.
The list showed 37 nominees to district courts, nine to circuit courts, two each to the International Trade and Federal Claims courts, and one to the Military Commission Review.
All of them better picks than anything Hillary Clinton or any other Democrat could propose.
The Washington Examiner has the list, including Neomi Rao. An Indian-American chosen to fill the seat vacated by one Judge (now Justice) Kavanaugh.
Rao’s experience speaks for itself. A graduate of Yale University and the University of Chicago Law School, she clerked for Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson and Justice Clarence Thomas and served in both the White House Counsel’s office and Senate Judiciary Committee staff before joining the faculty of George Mason University School of Law, where she founded the Center for the Study of the Administrative State. Over the last two years, she has applied her expertise in administrative law with distinction as President Trump’s administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), where she has been a leader of the administration’s regulatory reform initiatives.
No Progressive Wallflower
Rao is controversial to the left because she doesn’t toe their line. NRO notes that in a 1994 ope ed (during college) the nominee wrote,
Underneath their touchy-feely talk of tolerance, [multiculturalists] seek to undermine American culture. They argue that culture, society, and politics have been defined—and presumably defiled—by white, male heterosexuals hostile to their way of life. For example, homosexuals want to redefine marriage and parenthood; feminists in women’s studies programs want to replace so-called male rationality with more sensitive responses common to womyn. It may be kinder and gentler, but can you build a bridge with it?
Her college writing is of extreme interest to the left because Rao is no liberal snowflake. A woman or color not in need of social justice air-cover, safe spaces, or the hand of government to guide her thinking or her life.
Neomi is no Julia which, along with the lefts obvious distaste, makes her a perfect choice to replace Justice Kavanagh.
Can the Senate manage to get them all confirmed? Sen. Graham says his committee will “confirm as many as possible, as soon as possible.”
We can only hope.
