Brett Talley has been nominated by Trump to the US District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. He is valued by the GOP for his extremist conservative views and his youth… he can create havoc on the bench for a long time. What was tragic for him after the Aurora and Newtown shootings, was not the loss of life, but that President Obama and others, including Republicans like Senator Pat Toomey responded to the tragedy by advancing common- sense gun safety measures.
Along with a disinclination for helping already-born people live safer lives with reasonable gun safety laws, he would like to remove reproduction rights from women, reverse a plethora of civil rights, and remove our environmental protections. He’s also has been found to be unqualified by the American Bar Association.
Greg Katsas has been working as Deputy White House Counsel and now wants to be a judge for the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. His main qualifications, like Talley’s, are crazy right-wing extremism and youth. Katsas’s career has also been defined by advocating for virtually unchecked executive power, trying to weaken civil rights laws, and working to eviscerate critical protections for the environment, workers, consumers and investors.
Jeff Mateer is nominated for a lifetime appointment on the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. LGBT rights groups and Democratic senators have raised concerns over comments from Mateer, first published by CNN’s KFile, in which he described transgender children as evidence of “Satan’s plan,” lamented that states were banning conversion therapy, and argued that sanctioning same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy and bestiality. Mateer made his comments about the treatment of Christians in the US in three separate interviews on “Chosen Generation with Pastor Greg,” a radio show hosted by Pastor Greg Young that, according to its website, is “an informational program that will give you the information you need to argue for a biblical worldview, a Constitutional Republic and the truth to refute all of the lies and disinformation from media to academia to what has become of the church itself.” Yeah, there should be no problems with this one… You can also protest here.
