    The administration is vetting and submitted judges for vacancies on the federal bench in record numbers. But, many can even get a hearing because of Dimbocrap tactics.

    So, the Democrats are using a number of strategies to delay confirmations on judges. Among the strategies, Democrats are refusing to blue home-state senators from submitting “blue slips” showing their consent to advancing the nomination.

    Just another arcane and outdated Senate “custom” that needs to be done away with – and the reform would only need 51 votes if the GOP had senatorial leadership.

    my letter to my Dimbocrap senator

    Senator Cortez-Masto

    I am fully aware that you and your fellow Democrats are doing everything possible to block and thwart the efforts of our duly-elected President Donald J. Trump. The effort to delay confirmation of judicial nominees is just one of many things that will be considered by voters in the 2018 election. I will predict now that the GOP will pick up even more seats, local, state, and federal, in the 2018 election.

    If you are one withholding your “blue slip” for the nomination of judges, I urge you to stop and do what the majority of Americans want.

    I didn’t vote for you as I honestly believe you are nothing but a Harry Reid flack.

    Good. Delay as long as possible. At least until November 2018.

    A Democrat controlled Senate and/or House are not going to pass Trump's cruel legislation

    If they don't, then we deserve whatever happens to us. Like we deserved the economic meltdown of '08 and the complete failure of the Iraq and Afghan wars after re-electing Dubya.

    'record numbers'- odd isn't it that no one is producing those numbers?

    Nor is anyone saying how many of these nominations the Democrats are 'stalling'

    Funny how the opposition can stall judicial appointments.......
