Time to abolish the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (and we really mean it this time)

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.

It would be one of the great master strokes of a Trump Administration to do that. Maybe after Mike Pence is elected to replace him and The Donald is on his way out after 8 years of making America great again. Generations yet unborn would honor his name from removing that stone from the national shoe.

I cannot wrap my head around this whole thing. How can they say what every president has done is suddenly "unconstitutional?" I'm so confused...

Fredd said...

LL: if you think the Left is having a conniption fit over The Donald's election, just wait until he initiates steps to dump this bogus bench. Stand back and watch the fireworks. I'll bet it gets real juicy....

Adrienne: we are witness to the rumblings of a lawless revolution by the Left after Trump's inauguration. Since they now have no power at all, they don't know whether to shit or go blind.

The violence by college mobs, the shrill rhetoric from the presumptive leader of the liberal movement now (Pocahontas Warren), and now this ridiculous encroachment of executive power by leftist judges, I think we are seeing the beginnings of what will soon become a violent leftist revolution.

We'll see how nuts it gets going forward.

It is a revolution right now. The rioting, looting, burning and destruction is already a violent revolution. Are any of them ever put in jail?

We are overdue to have a colony on the moon. They talk about an expedition to Mars, but it would be easier from the moon, or a space station.
To me it is unacceptable that we rely on the Russians to get our astronauts into space.

You all have a blessed weekend.

Fredd said...

LindaG: A couple of them are in jail, yes.

Colony on the moon: not yet. We don't have the technology in place. It would cost an absolute fortune to sustain this lunar colony. We can't even afford to build a measly little wall on our southern border.

LindaG said...

Sadly true, Fredd. And the way the liberal socialists are teaching our kids, it is doubtful we have any smart enough to develop the technology.
Home schooling and charter schools might save us there, as long as they are not beaten into submission or some such.

I agree whole-heartedly.

Z said...

You can't "abolish" it, every area needs an Appeals Court, but you can SURE dismantle some of the judges...and yes, WHAT A FIGHT that'll be. But, can you? What's the deal on how long those judges have their jobs? Do they have contracts for a few years? it's certainly not the life-long SC, right?

Z: abolish it, reform another court, same dirt.

Easy. These jerks gotta go.

Disband them them or something else. Time to put the fear of God into the libtards in high places. Sometimes it is necessary.

Fredd said...

Kid: libtards don't fear that which they deny exists. Put the fear of something else into them, but God ain't on the list.

They fear Kellyanne Conway. She scares the bejeezus outta them.
