How An Unqualified Lawyer Scammed A Federal Judge Position In Trump’s America


>>ANOTHER OF DONALD TRUMP'S FEDERAL JUDICIAL NOMINEES WAS APPROVED BY THE SENATE, WHICH EVEN A YEAR AFTER THE ELECTION I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT'S A SENTENCE I HAVE TO SAY THAT WE WILL PUSH ON THIS GUY WASN'T QUALIFIED FOR THE POSITION, BUT HE WASN'T JUST NORMAL TRUMP NOT QUALIFIED FOR THE POSITION, HE REALLY WASN'T QUALIFIED — >>HOLD ON, I DON'T THINK THE NAME IS RIGHT ON THIS GRAPHIC — PULL OUT OF THAT

THIS GUY DOESN'T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE APPARENTLY HE WENT TO HARVARD LAW SCHOOL AT SOME POINT, PRACTICED FOR THREE YEARS, BUT MOST RECENTLY HE APPEARS TO BE AT LEAST A BLOGGER, POSSIBLY AUTHOR AS WELL, WE WILL SHOW YOU SOME GRAPHICS OF HIS BOOKS WHICH ARE INTERESTING, BUT HE TWEETED THINGS ABOUT HILLARY ROTTEN CLINTON, TALKED ABOUT A WAR ON GUNS, SAID HILLARY CLINTON SHOULD BE IN JAIL — I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHERE HE COMES FROM TO BE NOMINATED IN THE FIRST PLACE, BUT THESE COMMITTEES IN THE SENATE ARE DESIGNED TO STOP THIS SORT OF PERSON FROM TAKING THAT SEAT AND THE REASON IS THAT THIS ISN'T A SMALL THING WHERE FOR A YEAR THIS GUY IS A PROBLEM DONALD TRUMP SET AT ONE POINT TALKING ABOUT THE SUCCESSES HE'S HAVING — >>BECAUSE AS I ALLUDED TO BEFORE TRUMP WAS ELECTED WHEN I TRIED TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN'T SIMPLY GIVE THE COUNTRY OVER TO FASCISTS FOR A FEW YEARS AND EVERYTHING WILL BE HUNKY-DORY, EVEN IF TRUMP IS IMPEACHED TOMORROW OR LOSES REELECTION, THERE WILL BE DOZENS OR PERHAPS HUNDREDS OF JUDGES SITTING ON THE BENCH FOR FIVE OR 10 OR 30 OR 50 YEARS >>THERE ARE TWO ISSUES, ONE IS THIS GUY AND ONE IS WHAT REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE WITH JUDGES OVERALL

FIRST ON THIS GUY, I ACTUALLY DON'T CARE THAT HE WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORTS THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION, HE PRAYS FOR THEM, ETC, I THINK THE WHOLE IDEA OF JUDGES PRETENDING THEY DON'T HAVE POLITICAL OPINIONS IS A JOKE, THEY DO, THEY SHOULD JUST BE HONEST ABOUT IT IT'S PREPOSTEROUS WHEN GORSUCH GOES OUT THERE AND SAYS I DON'T HAVE POLITICAL OPINIONS, I JUST HAPPEN TO RULE FOR THE RIGHT WING IN EVERY CASE >>I WOULD SAY THERE IS EXPRESSING SUPPORT FOR THE NRA, AND THEN SAYING AFTER SANDY HOOK OBAMA SAYS HE WANTS TIGHTER BACKGROUND CHECKS AND HE SAYS THIS IS A WAR TO TAKE AWAY FROM EVERY AMERICAN >>YOU CAN DISAGREE WITH HIS POLITICAL POSITIONS, BUT PRETENDING HE DOESN'T HAVE THEM IS STUPID

IT DRIVES ME CRAZY WHEN LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES DO IT THE EXTREME-NESS OF HIS POSITIONS YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT, BECAUSE ONE OF THE COMMENTERS ON HIS BLOG — WHICH IS HIS MAIN QUALIFICATION FOR A FEDERAL JUDGE POSITION — >>I WANT TO BECOME AN AMBASSADOR BASED ON MY TUMBLR >>A COMMENTOR SAID WE WILL HAVE TO RESORT TO ARMS OF OUR OTHER RIGHTS ARE TAKEN AWAY, MEANING WE WILL TAKE UP ARMS AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT AND COMMIT VIOLENCE AND TALLEY RESPONDED, I AGREE COMPLETELY WITH THIS I'M NOT SURE A GUY SHOULD BE A FEDERAL JUDGE IF HE HAS AGREED IN THE PAST WITH TAKING UP ARMS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND PERHAPS KILLING PEOPLE, THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS TO TAKE UP ARMS AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT IF YOU ARE CLEAR ON THAT

THAT COULD BE A DISQUALIFIER BECAUSE OF HOW INSANE HE'S BEEN IN THE PAST IN TERMS OF HIS QUALIFICATIONS LET'S BE FAIR, HE WENT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA, GOOD SCHOOL, HARVARD LAW SCHOOL, THAT'S TERRIFIC, CLERKED FOR TWO FEDERAL JUDGES, NOT BAD, A SPEECHWRITER FOR MITT ROMNEY, THOSE ARE ALL FINE, BUT HE HASN'T TRIED ANY CASES AT ALL, HE'S BEEN A LAWYER FOR ONLY THREE YEARS EVEN KNOW HE'S 36 — IT'S OKAY TO GET INTO IT LATER IN LIFE, NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT — BUT YOU ARE BEASLEY WANT A LITTLE MORE QUALIFICATION THAN I'VE BEEN A LAWYER FOR A COUPLE YEARS WITHOUT EVER GOING TO COURT — I THINK HE WAS IN COURT ONCE, HE DIDN'T TAKE THE CASE TO COURT BUT HE APPEARED IN COURT ONCE, I'VE APPEARED IN COURT MORE THAN HE HAS >>MAYBE YOU WILL BE NEXT >>BY THE WAY, AS A LAWYER TOO >>ALTHOUGH NOT EXCLUSIVELY

>>NOT EXCLUSIVELY SO HOW IN THE WORLD DID THIS BLOGGER WITH NO EXPERIENCE IN THE COURTROOM GET THIS INCREDIBLE POSITION? WELL, HE WAS A PROTÉGÉ OF REPUBLICAN SENATOR LUTHER STRANGE, AND SENATORS LOVE TO APPOINT THEIR INTERNS OR PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR THEM THAT'S A WELL-KNOWN THING AND NOT ONLY THAT, HE DICK CHENEY-ED IT WHEN JEFF SESSIONS BECAME ATTORNEY GENERAL, TALLEY TOOK A JOB IN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OFFICE THAT SELECTS JUDICIAL NOMINEES

OH, I HAVE A GREAT IDEA, THERE'S A WONDERFUL BLOGGER IN ALABAMA, BARELY SEEN A COURTROOM, BUT HE WOULD MAKE A GREAT FEDERAL JUDGE LOOK AT THAT, IT HAPPENS TO BE ME THAT'S PARTLY HOW HE GOT THE JOB >>I'M SORRY IF IT TURNS OUT TOMORROW THIS ISN'T ACCURATE, WE WERE WORKING UNTIL WE WENT LIVE TO TRY TO CONFIRM THIS, THERE'S VERY LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS GUY, HE WROTE SOME EDITORIALS I READ, IT'S THE STANDARD IDEOLOGICAL STUFF YOU WOULD EXPECT, AND HE APPARENTLY ISN'T JUST A BLOGGER, APPARENTLY HE'S AN AUTHOR AS WELL EVERYTHING WE'VE HAVE FOUND IMPLIES IT'S THE SAME BRETT J

TALLEY SAME AGE, THE PICTURES LOOK IDENTICAL — APPARENTLY HE HAS WRITTEN SOME BOOKS AS WELL, APPARENTLY SOME FAIRLY WELL RECEIVED HORROR NOVELS AND I'M A LITTLE DISTURBED THAT GOING BY THE LEFT MOST ONE HE'S ALSO A FAN OF THE CTHULHU MYTHOS, I HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO LOOK OVER THESE BOOKS BUT I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD >>IT MEANS AT LEAST THAT HE WILL WRITE CREATIVE DECISIONS >>OR COLORFUL

>>I COULDN'T FIND ANYONE ELSE TALKING ABOUT THAT YOU FIND INFORMATION ON HIM AND THE FIRST THING THAT COMES UP ARE THE BOOKS >>I THINK THAT SPEAKS TO A LARGER PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE, I PRAISED THE MEDIA IN THE LAST SEGMENT, HERE I WILL BASH THEM, I THINK THIS HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT TRUMP IS A MARKETING GENIUS AND HE HAS ROPED THE MEDIA INTO THIS WASH AND RINSE CYCLE WHERE IT'S LIKE, I'M GOING TO TWEET, THERE'S THE FIRE — MEANWHILE BACK AT THE RANCH, ALL OF HIS CABINET — THIS IS CABINET LEVEL, CLEARLY IT WAS PUSHED BY JUSTICE — THESE CABINET SECRETARIES AND THEIR PLEBEIANS AND APPOINTEES ARE LITERALLY SHREDDING REGULATION THEY HAVE PAPER SHREDDERS, OBAMA'S NAME IS ON IT, SHRED THAT FAST NOBODY IS COVERING IT

BETSY DEVOS, FOR EXAMPLE, SHE REPEALED 71 DIFFERENT EDUCATION REGULATIONS IN ONE DAY AND NOBODY TALKED ABOUT IT BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP TWEETED COVFEFE >>I WOULD ARGUE NOBODY IS NOT TRUE >>EXCUSE ME, MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND I THINK THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT TRUMP HAS FIGURED OUT HOW TO FALL THEM WHILE ALL THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING, PUTTING ALL THESE JUDGES UP, NO ONE WILL PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE THEY WILL FOCUS ON ME IN ASIA SAYING CRAZY THINGS ABOUT LITTLE ROCKET MAN WHILE MY ADMINISTRATION IS DOING BAD THINGS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THIS IS AN EXAMPLE

>>LAST THING ABOUT THIS GUY, THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION UNANIMOUSLY RATED HIM NOT QUALIFIED THEY DID EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO NOT INCLUDE NOT REMOTELY QUALIFIED TO THE LARGER ISSUE, REPUBLICANS DID RECORD-BREAKING OBSTRUCTION DURING OBAMA, IN HIS LAST TWO YEARS THEY ONLY APPROVED 22 JUSTICES IN TWO YEARS TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF HOW OUT OF WHACK THAT IS, THE DEMOCRATS IN BUSH'S LAST TWO YEARS WHEN THEY WERE IN CHARGE APPROVED 68, TRIPLE THE NUMBER REPUBLICANS APPROVED SO WHEN TRUMP GOT IN OFFICE THERE WERE 100 VACANT SEATS, AN INCREDIBLE NUMBER, THAT MEANS A LOT OF CASES WERE BACKLOGGED, JUSTICE WAS DELAYED AND SOMETIMES DENIED, BUT REPUBLICANS DIDN'T MIND THAT BECAUSE THEY WERE PLAYING POLITICAL GAMES INCLUDING OF COURSE WITH THE SUPREME COURT SEAT

22 IS THE LOWEST NUMBER SINCE 1951 AND 1952 IN ONE YEAR TRUMP HAS NOMINATED 59 PEOPLE AND REPUBLICANS HAVE SAID CLEAR SAILING, THEY ALL VOTED AS A BLOCK ON ALL OF THEM TO APPROVE 22 IN TWO YEARS, 2259 IN ONE YEAR, THAT'S RECORD-BREAKING OBSTRUCTION AND TO RICHARD'S POINT THE MEDIA JUST GRAZES PAST IT IT'S IN THE ARTICLES, IT'S IN PARAGRAPH 17 IN SOME OF THE ARTICLES, BUT YOU DON'T TURN ON CABLE NEWS AND SEE THAT REPUBLICANS DO OBSTRUCTION MORE THAN DEMOCRATS

WHAT YOU SEE IS 50/50 GOLLY GEE, REMEMBER DURING THE OBAMA YEARS, WE CAN'T TELL WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OBSTRUCTION IT WAS CLEARLY, DEFINITIVELY, FACTUALLY THE REPUBLICANS THIS IS A BATTLEFIELD THAT DRIVES ME CRAZY IF DEMOCRATS GET CONTROL OF CONGRESS AGAIN AND THERE IS A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT THEY SHOULD BLOCK EVERY SINGLE JUDICIAL NOMINEE

>>AFTER GIVING THEM A CHANCE >>NO, NO CHANCE YOU WANT TO SAY THERE WERE ONLY BE 22 IN TWO YEARS UNDER OBAMA? NO PROBLEM, MAYBE WE LET TWO THROUGH IN THE LAST TWO YEARS OF TRUMP OR PENCE OR WHOEVER LET'S GET THE SENATE SO WE CAN BLOCK THEIR JUDGES I'M TIRED OF DEMOCRATS COMPLAINING THAT THINGS AREN'T FAIR AND THEN GIVING REPUBLICANS EVERYTHING THEY WANT

THE COUNTRY IS TIRED OF IT TWO CAN PLAY AT THAT GAME UNTIL WE FIX THE DAM SYSTEM >>I AGREE, THE ONE THING I WON'T FORGIVE OBAMA FOR WAS LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH STEALING THE MERRICK GARLAND SEAT HE SHOULD HAVE MADE A RECESS APPOINTMENT, FOUND A DISABLED LESBIAN BLACK WOMAN AND WALKED INTO MITCH MCCONNELL'S OFFICE AND SAID I DARE YOU, PLEASE REMOVE HER FROM THE COURT LET'S HAVE SOME FUN

>>THAT'S A GREAT POINT LISTEN, YOU AREN'T APPROVING MERRICK GARLAND, NO PROBLEM GO TO RECESS AND WE WILL SEE HOW IT TURNED OUT LOOK AT THAT, CORNEL WEST IS ON THE SUPREME COURT BUT DEMOCRATS NEVER DO THAT, WHICH GIVES REPUBLICANS AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE

AND THE MEDIA GOES, I GUESS IT'S EVEN IT'S NOT EVEN
