Republicans push bill to split up ‘nutty 9th Circuit’

Via Billy

As judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals weigh the legality of President Trump’s immigration executive order, a Republican push to split up the controversial court -- and shrink its clout -- is gaining steam on Capitol Hill.

Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation last month to carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit.

They argue that the 9th is too big, too liberal and too slow resolving cases. If they succeed, only California, Oregon, Hawaii and two island districts would remain in the 9th's judicial fiefdom.

Right now, Flake said, the circuit is far too sprawling.

  1. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has been a thorn in the
    hearts of honorable, righteous Americans for a long time.
    The communist appointed judges always rule against American
    traditional and Constitutional values. They are Lepers.

    1. The country needs to be split up, much as it did in 1861.

    2. AMEN! Brock.

      Next, why split up the nuts? Are they not still nuts?

      Rather, why doesn't Congress exercise their duty and power to impeach the nuts or at least defund any court that issues judicial decrees or upholds judicial decrees as did all 4 of the judges involved in the case?

      That would show the courts that Congress still has a pair and that usurpation of the powers granted to the other two branches of government shall not be tolerated.

      No, I'm not holding my breath either, but in a true republic that is the necessary remedy.

  2. Not gonna' happen Brock. What'll ya do? Dust off yer musket.

  3. This proposal is about the only good thing I have to say for McCain/Flake. As many times as this has been proposed and failed, I sure hope it takes root and passes this time around. The 12th circus should be relegated to playgrounds and smaller.
