Bust Judicial Filibusters

This piece by FreedomWorks Co-Chairman C. Boyden Gray originally appeared in Human Events Online. The Senate moved closer this week to a long-awaited showdown over President Bush’s judicial nominees—10 of whom Democrats blocked starting in 2003 by using the parliamentary device known as the filibuster. As Republican leaders have moved closer to restoring 214 years of Senate tradition of giving judicial nominees an up-or-down vote, Democrats have launched an aggressive defense of their unprecedented use of the filibuster that is based on mythology, not fact.

The Filibuster-Proof Majority?

BY W. James Antle III

In a year likely to be filled with political conflict, few clashes loom larger than those involving the composition of the federal judiciary. The battle lines are drawn: President Bush has already announced that he will resubmit judicial nominees blocked during the last Congress and Senate Democrats are already signaling they won't relent in their opposition.

On Judicial Confirmations, CSE Members say “Enough is Enough!”

This summer, unyielding grassroots pressure from the Michigan chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is helping create the political momentum necessary for Congress to act on the issue of stalled judicial nominees. Volunteer activists in the state, tired of the inaction and political shenanigans of certain members of Congress on this issue, are raising awareness and lobbying Democratic Senators Carl Levin (D – MI) and Debbie Stabenow. Michigan CSE wants Sens. Stabenow and Levin to allow a vote on President Bush’s Judicial Nominations to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Backgrounder: Judicial Crisis on the Sixth Circuit

United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit • The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which has 16 authorized seats, has 4 vacancies. President Bush has nominated 4 well-qualified individuals from Michigan to fill these vacancies. All 4 of these vacancies have been deemed judicial emergencies by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. • The vacancy rate in the Sixth Circuit is 25%. The confirmation of two judges in late April/early May of this year did fill two of six vacancies, but the Circuit remains overburdened.
