There is an article which caught my eye for the simple reason that the American Justice System has been turned on its ear. For lifetime.
First: How did we get here? The Election of 2016.And his panders. Since he is the "Chosen One"

President Donald Trump this week boasted to a room full of evangelical Christians that the new judges to whom he was appointing to lifetime positions would start handing down rulings in their favor in the near future.
Patheos reports that Trump on Wednesday night told attendees at the National Day of Prayer dinner that the judges he’s been appointing would change the American legal landscape to ensure that they are “treated very, very fairly.”
“I’m thrilled to report that, tomorrow, the Senate will confirm the 100th federal judge to the court system. Under my administration, we’re getting to a level where we’re gonna be breaking records with respect to the judiciary, which means a lot to the people in this room because you were treated very poorly,” Trump said. “And now, with time, you’ll see what happens.”
The group who only cares about themselves, and nobody else. Their own ideology. Who read and follow the Bible, follow Gods Word. Listen to the sermons every Sunday, give copious amounts of money in a sealed white envelope for the collection plate, while the person they support is doing everything "against" the Bible, they got the "Abortion" over turned. And their cup Runneth over. - Each is a summary of
With those decisions, we get to this stage, which basically affects yourself, and your kids. Two generations.

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh - At the top of the list. And what was the ranting and ravings.. Ah yes.. Caravan (What Caravan?) and Kavanaugh - didn't know he could rhyme.
Next we got:
Judge Leonard Steven Grasz on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit
"Grasz earned an embarrassing and unanimous “not qualified” rating from the ABA, which has been evaluating federal judicial nominees since 1989 and rarely gives such an abysmal rating. Former colleagues described Grasz as “gratuitously rude,” per the ABA review, and expressed an “unusual fear” of consequences if they said anything bad about him because of his “deep connection” to powerful politicians" - AND AND VOTED "YES" BY EVERY REPUBLICAN
Judge Jonathan Kobes on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Court_of_Appeals_for_the_Eighth_Circuit
Kobes earned a “not qualified” rating by the ABA because he “was unable to provide sufficient writing samples of the caliber required” of a circuit judge. He also failed to demonstrate “an especially high degree of legal scholarship and excellent analytical and writing experience
Judge Neomi Rao on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
now why this one important:
Rao published a series of inflammatory articles on sexual assault, race and LGBTQ rights as a Yale University student. “A good way to avoid a potential date rape is to stay reasonably sober,” she wrote, adding that if a woman drinks to the point where she cannot choose if she wants to have sex, “getting to that point was part of her choice. EVERY REPUBLICAN CONFIRMED HER
judge John Bush on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit
Bush previously compared abortion to slavery and called them “the two greatest tragedies in our country.” He has also said he strongly disagrees with same-sex marriage, mocked climate change, called for gagging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and proclaimed “the witch is dead” when he thought the Affordable Care Act might not be enacted
Judge Amy Coney Barrett on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit
Barrett has suggested Roe v. Wade was an “erroneous decision” and called the Affordable Care Act’s birth control benefit “an assault on religious liberty.” She is on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court picks, which Trump said only includes people willing to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Judge Kyle Duncan on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit
As an attorney, Duncan defended North Carolina’s egregious voter suppression law that a federal appeals court struck down in 2016, ruling that it discriminated against black voters and “targeted African Americans with almost surgical precision.” Duncan appealed the case to the Supreme Court, calling it “ludicrous” to suggest the law echoed Jim Crow laws.
Judge Kenneth Lee on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit - he wrote, and LGBTQ rights advocacy is “yet another way to portray people as victims in need of preferential treatment
Judge Eric Murphy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit - - The court upheld that law in a contentious 5-4 decision, with Justice Sonia Sotomayor writing in her dissent that the law will disproportionately make it harder for “minority, low-income, disabled, homeless, and veteran voters to cast a ballot.” Every Senate Republican present voted to confirm him.
Judge Allison Rushing Jones on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit- She has argued that there were “moral and practical” reasons for banning same-sex marriage.
Judge Don Willett on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit - mocked a California law relating to transgender students’ participation in school sports. He has bragged that “there is no ideological daylight to the right of me, = Willett is on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court picks, which Trump said only includes people willing to overturn Roe v. Wade. Every Senate Republican voted to confirm him.
Judge Eric Miller on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit - Miller built a legal career out of fighting tribal interests and sovereignty, so much so that one Native American leader described Miller’s law firm, Perkins Coie, as the go-to destination for jurisdictions that want “to fight an Indian tribe
Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas
called it “a grave mistake” to include protections for LGBTQ people in the Violence Against Women Act, and he signed a 2016 letter that called being transgender “a delusion.”
And here is real special one:
Judge Wendy Vitter on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
Vitter claimed that Planned Parenthood “kills over 150,000 females a year.” The former general counsel to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and wife to former Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) also falsely linked abortion to cancer
These are just some of the hits - They are more but I dont have the stomach to write it out. One base, who want to follow a blind leader who doesn't even follow what you call the Good Book..
Ruined the American Justice System
