I DON'T TRUST ANYONE NOMINATED BY THE TRAITOR-IN-CHIEF!
I think Democrats need to not “oppose any nomination by President Trump,” but to be open to any nomination based on judicial rulings, leadership, and experience. Before President Trump was elected, Democrats were all for fairness; and we can see that today where on college campuses, no one can deny a person on the basis of sex, religion, orientation, gender, disability, etc. But we see Democrats denying a nominee based on his nomination by President Trump. Even if President Trump nominated a judicial activist, the people on the left, and liberals too, would oppose the nominee. Let’s all be open to any nominee, by any party or President, and look at the credentials. It’s not difficult guys, quit acting like a bunch of two year olds.
One more clown for the 9th circus court. Liberal baby killing morons. Ban all democrats. End the domestic terrorist. Remember to have you neighborhood liberals spayed or neutered. Thank god we have Trump making the nation great again.
Why don’t we judge a nominee based on their judicial history instead of who they are nominated by? It just shows the level of childish behavior by the left leaning trump haters.
We need moderate judges on the courts. NOT the reactionaries that Trump keeps nominating. Vote NO. you will be held accountable.
I challenge every one of the forty four Senators,who voted to deny new born infants the right to life,to explain how these infants civil rights are not denied by their shameful vote. Explain to the American people how you did not violate your oath of office,your Constitutional responsibilities to protect the civil rights of the most vulnerable in our society. EXPLAIN YOURSELVES ! Or are you also COWARDS !
I am a resident of Washington State and I support Eric D. Miller's nomination to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I would appreciate my law makers not play politics and do the proper thing by moving forward with vetting this individual.
Why The Heck NOT DEMOCRATS......... The 9th Circuit Court needs to be marginalized and less biased. SneakyPete......... 👍🏻9th Circuit👍🏻. 2*26*19..........
Time to break up the fascist 9th circuit!
I am a voter in Washington State and I oppose this nomination. I am Not a fan of this guy. He has a ugly record. Specifically, with his record on the rights and treaties with the First Nations. The 9th Circuit just so happens to be responsible for 427 federally recognized Native nations, or roughly 75 percent of all federally recognized Native nations. The Ninth Circuit oversees more tribal cases than any of the other federal circuit courts and often sets precedents that trickle their way down to the lower regional and state courts. And now, the Ninth Circuit will add a man with a penchant for attacking the weak spots around the United States’ treaties with the Native nations.. Federal judicial nominations have a disproportionate impact on Indian Country because Indian law is often made and changed more from the judicial bench than by Congress. As an attorney, this nominee has represented interests that were opposed to treaty rights. He has attacked Tribal sovereign immunity. He has disputed a Tribal nation’s ability to acquire trust lands under the Indian Reorganization Act and shown a repeated willingness to side against Tribes in court, and I fear this track record will follow him to the bench. Hard pass on this guy. He has no respect for the First Nations or their people.
If the Senators of Washington State have pulled their support of Mr. Miller, then I'm a YEA.
New judges are badly needed on the 9th circuit. I fully support him.
We need to stop the continued Republican takeover of the judiciary.
We need more constitutionalists and fewer activists on the ninth circuit!
Eric Miller, great choice for the 9th circus.
IF trump PICKED HIM HE CAN'T BE GOOD
Anyone who clerked for Clarence Thomas has to be bad to the bone as far as I’m concerned. A boys will be boys paid off judge.
Please support the nomination and/or appointment of Mr. Eric Miller, to the ninth circuit court. Thank you very much for your support concerning this matter. Sincerely, Mr. Daniel Odum.
Could find no reason that.he was not qualified to do the job. I am not a Trump supporter. Nominees need to be judged on their qualifications not who they are nominated by. Only opposing views I read were written by people opposing him because Trump nominated him. No one rated him on his qualifications.
More conservative judges needed to make better common sense decisions
I support this nomination only because everyone against it spouts something about Trump, and not this gentleman’s merit!
We’re Continuing The Sad 😔 Obstructionist Activity’s by the Democrats. I’m in full support of ALL nominees put forth by President Trump AND opposed by the Progressive Socialist leaning Democratic members of Congress. SneakyPete.......... 🙀👿👿👿🙀. 2*26*19..........
