WASHINGTON — President-Elect Donald Trump on Wednesday nominated Judith Sheindlin to be the nation’s 113th Supreme Court justice, choosing a centrist reality television judge who could reshape the court for a generation and become the face of a bitter election-year confirmation struggle.
“I’ve been watching Judge Judy on TV for years”, Trump said, “she is really fast. She runs her court like a McDonald’s. Get them in and out in ten minutes or less. It will really speed things up. Those judges we have on the court now are so slow and incompetent. Judge Judy is great. It’s going to be be great.”
The nomination to fill the seat on the court created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia sets in motion a standoff that is likely to play out for many months, perhaps without resolution. Its outcome could tip the ideological balance of the nation’s highest court, and leave a large hole in the daytime reality show line ups.
President Obama made no official statement regarding Sheindlin’s nomination, but The White house released a one word statement to Fox News. It said, “Seriously?”
Ben Carson, tapped as new head of Housing and urban development praised the pick. “I think it’s very wise that President Elect Trump finally appointed some one to a position they actually know something about. I’ve not met Judge Judy but I’ve watched her for years and she is really really smart. One time this girl’s puppy peed on her boyfriend’s couch and she made her pay for it. She is really tough and kind of scares me. I sure wouldn’t let my puppy pee on her couch.”
Judy Sheindlin was born on October 21, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, USA as Judith Blum. She is a writer, known for Judge Judy (1996), Judge Judy: Justice Served (2007) and CHiPs ’99 (1998). She was previously married to Jerry Sheindlin and Ronald Levy.
After nearly 25 years in New York’s Family Court, Judge Sheindlin retired from the bench in 1996 to start the syndicated program that bears her name.
Judge Sheindlin began her career in family court in 1972. In 1982, then New York Mayor Edward Koch appointed her to the bench. In 1986, she was appointed the Supervising Judge in Manhattan’s Family Court. She heard more than 20,000 cases during her career. She was tapped to teach all newly elected and appointed Family Court Judges for almost a decade. In the family court she earned a reputation as one of New York’s most effective judges. Judge Sheindlin is credited with pioneering an “open court policy,” allowing the public and the media to view the family court process.
Judge Sheindlin was the subject of a Los Angeles Times article in February 1993. The story caught the attention of “60 Minutes,” which soon led to a segment on the iconic news magazine.
After her appearance, she was approached about the possibility of presiding over cases on a television program. JUDGE JUDY premiered in national syndication on September 16, 1996.
In 1995, Judge Sheindlin published her first book, “Don’t Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining,” in which she offers her insight into how and why the family court fails in its mission to impact shattered families. “Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever,” her second book, was published in January 1999. A New York Times best seller, the book challenges women to be the best they can be.
Trump promises that getting Judge Sheindlin confirmed will be one of his first priorities when taking office in January. Judge Judy could not be reached for comment.

Obamas military command will prevent delivery of Christmas cards being sent from families to their servicemen loved ones overseas spokesmen for The Pentagon said today. The White House claims that traditional Christmas greetings wish will upset Muslims in host countries and will have to convicted and returned to the sender.

Per executive order,all overseas military mail will be monitored for references to Christmas, Jesus Christ, or pork products which are known to offend Muslims.

An Army Veteran who reached out to Fox News said Pentagon leadership is hypersensitive to anyone who says they feel like their rights are being violated.

Its extremely frustrating, the soldier said. The U.S. Military is living in fear of radical Muslims.

The soldier, who asked not to be identified because he feared being disciplined or assaulted my Muslims, said many people are furious over the censorship


If soldiers cannot speak the name of God, let alone Christ, what are we fighting for? he asked. Ive towed the company line for years but this has pushed me too far to sit quietly while personal liberties are trampled upon.

The soldier said in recent months they have been reminded that they cannot proselytize and they cannot share their faith say anything nice about Jesus or Christianity.

We are strongly discouraged from having any kind of Christian items on our desks or in our offices, he said

Texas-based Liberty Institute sent a demand letter to the White House, insisting they immediately drop this policy which allows a generic greeting but disallows references to Christmas, which is officially recognized as a national holiday under federal law.

Liberty Institutes Director of Litigation, Hyman Stratcher, responded in a statement, Obama is once again engaging in unlawful religious discrimination. It is shameful that the military continues to censor religious speech in Christmas cards while allowing atheists,gays, and satanists to send porn,drugs,electronic cigarettes,or any other ungodly thing they want.

Imam Al-Suq Akweer of the Islamic Friendship Coalition applauded the move as a step in the right direction in the quest for improved Islamic relations.

“Disbelievers are trying to draw Muslims away from the straight path”.he said,”Christmas Day and associated celebrations are among the ”falsehoods” for a Muslim to avoid.A Muslim is neither allowed to celebrate the Christmas Day nor is he allowed to congratulate them.Americans on Muslim soil must learn to abide by our customs to ensure peaceful relations.

The ban will go into effect December 15th.Military personnel will be given handbooks to explain what can and cannot be sent from home.

One of Reince Priebus’ first duties after being named chief of staff by President-elect Donald Trump was to defend another of his new boss’s appointments, Stephen Bannon.

Bannon, the bare-knuckle media executive who led White Power news site Breitbart until taking on the role of Trump’s campaign CEO in August, is credited with blazing a populist path that helped make Trump the president-elect. But his appointment as chief strategist and senior counselor prompted critics to charge he could propel Trump down a more xenophobic path.

Priebus, speaking Monday on “Fox & Friends,” said he and Bannon are on the same page when it comes to advancing the agenda of a Trump administration, and downplayed the criticism.
“He was a force for good on the campaign,” Priebus said. “I haven’t seen any of these things that people are crying out about. Bannon has already been in talks with our allies quelling their fears about himself and Mr.Trump.”

Bannon,in a phone interview with Fox news also tried to alive fears.
“Are there racist people involved in the alt-right? Absolutely,” he said “Look, are there some people that are white nationalists that are attracted to some of the philosophies of the alt-right? Maybe. Are there some people that are anti-Semitic that are attracted? Maybe. I can say without a doubt President Trump will protect all these people whether he likes them or not. Our Allies will be taken care of. I have been on the phone with [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu all morning. I reassured him that one of President Trump’s first priorities is to protect Israel and the Holy Land from the Muslims and The Jews.”
Mr. Bannon will take his White House job already at odds with the House speaker, Paul D. Ryan, an ally of Mr. Priebus’s whom Mr. Bannon has long sought to undermine.
