For those of us who remember Newt Gringrich's first run at the presidency in 2011, one of his plans if elected was to abolish the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. At the time, the ridiculous rulings that emanated from this panel of clowns included banning "one nation under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.
Also included in Newt's plans that year were colonizing the moon, but I digress. Gingrich actually laid out plans for eliminating the most reversed federal judicial body in the history of U.S. jurisprudence, and of course the Left had a cow. The Left has long known that foisting their agenda on Americans is tough using actual votes and the elective process. Accordingly, they have been steadily making inroads into the judiciary, stacking it with liberal pinkos who make political decisions rather than constitutional ones. Of course they would go apoplectic over losing one of their cherished agenda movers - the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Gingrich points out that Thomas Jefferson eliminated quite a few judicial appointments during his tenure (18 of 35 federal judges bit the dust back then). The technical framework in doing this today is still in place, and can be done; other than the Supreme Court, the rest of the judiciary is created by Congress, and Congress can un-create it at its pleasure.
Now a gang of three from this panel of idiots has determined that for any number of irrelevant and ridiculous reasons, the President of the United States does not have the power to control immigration - despite it clearly being a power designated solely to the executive branch of government. Donald Trump pointed out earlier that even a bad high school student understood the statute.
Apparently the 9th Circuit folks are packed with very bad high school students. Time to disband this bunch of morons.
