WASHINGTON, D.C.—According to an article published yesterday in the ultra-conservative Washington Times, ultra-conservative Senate Majority leader Mitch “Moscow Mitch” McConnell told ultra-conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt, regarding whatever judgeships are currently left unfilled, “We’re not going to leave a single vacancy behind by the end of next year.” He included Supreme Court vacancies in that promise, even though during the final year of President Barack Obama’s term, he refused to allow the Senate to hold hearings on the candidate nominated to replace the deceased Antonin Scalia, Merrick Garland.

And that’s a promise that could easily spell the death of the adult industry, even if Democrats win back the presidency and super-majorities in both houses of Congress.

And that’s not all the Eighth Circuit has been up to! In late August, a panel of three judges that included one Trump appointee and one George W. appointee ruled that the owners of Telescope Media Group could re-open their lawsuit against the state of Minnesota, which the Christian owners of the company believed would stop them from discriminating against same-sex couples if the owners decided, according to an article on Law360.com, to “expand their film and media company to provide wedding video services that promote the view that marriage should be between men and women. They said they would decline to film same-sex ceremonies since the messages conveyed by such ceremonies run counter to their religious beliefs.” Such a business model would clearly be in violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act—but this court allowed the suit to be reinstated anyway!

This is exactly the sort of horseshit liberals and progressives can expect when so-called “traditional values” are challenged in any court overseen by a Trump appointee—and so far, Trump has appointed (and Moscow Mitch’s Senate has confirmed) 127 (mostly white, mostly male) federal judges, 43 (mostly white, mostly male) federal appeals court judges—and two (white male) U.S. Supreme Court justices.
