Donald Trump made filling the federal bench with young conservative justices a centerpiece of his administration.
The President and his supporters did not have to wait long for that commitment to bear fruit.
And now Donald Trump was grinning from ear to ear after a court gave him this huge win.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals was long known as the most liberal – and which had the highest percentage of cases overturned by the Supreme Court – in the nation.
But things are changing.
In just three years, President Trump appointed 10 of the 29 justices on the Ninth Circuit.
By comparison, Barack Obama installed seven liberal jurists on the court in his entire eight years in office.
And now the Ninth Circuit is a not cartoon version of a court.
Thanks to President Trump’s appointees the rule of law and original intent of lawmakers are once again front and center.
The change in the ideological makeup of the Ninth Circuit came into clear focus when the Justices handed down a seven to four decision upholding the Trump administration’s pro-Life rule stripping Planned Parenthood of Title X federal money if it continued to refer women for abortion.
Judge Sandra Iktura wrote the majority opinion and her commitment to basing her ruling on the plain language of the statutes in question was a refreshing break from the convoluted logic the left-wing activists on the Ninth Circuit usually employed to justify their politically-motivated decisions in cases involving President Trump’s agenda items.
“In light of Supreme Court approval of the 1988 regulations and our broad deference to agencies’ interpretations of the statutes they are charged with implementing, plaintiffs’ legal challenges to the 2019 rule fail,” Judge Ikuta held. “Accordingly, we vacate the injunctions entered by the district courts and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.”
During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump promised to lead a pro-Life administration.
Thanks to his conservative judicial appointments the President is able to see that promise through.
