New Federal Nominees Revealed For Positions in Texas

  • U.S. Magistrate Judge Diana Saldaña for U.S. district judge in the Laredo Division of the Southern District of Texas;
  • Marina Garcia Marmolejo, a partner in Austin’s Diamond McCarthy, for U.S. district judge in the Laredo Division of the Southern District of Texas;
  • El Paso County Court-at-Law No. 3 Judge Javier Álvarez for U.S. district judge in the El Paso Division of the Western District of Texas;
  • 144th District Judge Catherine Torres-Stahl of Bexar County for U.S. district judge in the San Antonio Division of the Western District of Texas;
  • Michael W. McCrum, of counsel in the San Antonio office of Thompson & Knight, for U.S. attorney in the Western District of Texas; and
  • Jefferson County Criminal District Court Judge John B. Stevens Jr. for U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Texas.
Hey, am I seeing a pattern here? Oddly, there was no nominee presented for the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas (which includes Wise County.) And we haven't had anyone formally hold that position since the first of the year. (Note to Obama: waive that FBI background check and I'm available.) Source.

Is there some kind of roofer advancement program?

Well, our first ever appointed Hispanic Supreme Court Judge may have opened up something really great, thanks to a black President.

Barry, where do you fit into the future of such appointments?

Interested?

Likely you would jog your way to Washington for such, yes?

Inquiring minds want to know . . . What's in your past that the FBI will find out?

Obammy wouldn't know a FBI background check if it bit him in the ass. Have you read about the shady pasts of his Czars? Obammy wouldn't even be able to pass a background check for a government job with associations of shady characters in his past and present.

8:39, Are you saying that by having the first black supreme court judge or the first woman supreme court judge thanks to a white President that something really great didn't open up?

We're all doomed

¿Barry Verde has an interesting ring to it, no?

Sorry Barry, you are not qualified. You should have been born with a last name such as Verde. Then maybe you would be Judge Verde. Of cource your skin is the wrong color to get an Obama appointment.

The future. My fellow republicans are you listening?

Time to jettison the Deep South, segragation policies of the past..........not to mention Southern Baptist bigotry and hypocrisy.....if we want to be the majority party ever again.

8:14 - you've got it right but unfortunately the Republican party is doomed to be dominated by the hopelessly narrow minded right wing thus permanently becoming a fringe group.

while there is little evidence to disprove your conclusion re Republicans at the moment, I am old and I cannot tell you the number of times a party has been counted out only to revive itself.

I do think we will have to change. Rick Perry, Phil King, and our current constantable are not harbingers of a great future.

The wingnuts own the primaries and a reasonable moderate cannot get past that when he might win in the general election.
