The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has collectively abdicated its judicial responsibility to portion out justice and decide cases in an even-handed manner. The 29 active judges have been overwhelmingly elevated to their post by Democratic presidents, and their obvious political activism from the bench makes them unfit.
Of the active circuit court judges on the Ninth Circuit, five were put there by former Pres. George W. Bush, and only two by Pres. Donald J. Trump. The remainder are card-carrying liberals in lockstep with the globalist, progressive agendas advocated by now disgraced Pres. Clinton and far-left Pres. Obama.
Since Pres. Trump began implementing his America First policies, Ninth Circuit judges have consistently ruled against the administration — only to be overruled by the U.S. Supreme Court. The liberal judges have been so open about their anti-Trump leanings, that the resist and obstruct opposition know to run to the Ninth to temporarily impede the Commander in Chief. The Ninth is a national problem and these are more true facts why it must be broken up in 2019. Here’s the three best reasons:
#1: Ninth Circuit Is A Disgrace
In a ruling that stands the very fabric of American legal principles on its head, Ninth Circuit judicial activists are claiming that criminal conspiracy is now legal.
The recent case involved a law that criminalizes efforts to “induce or encourage” illegal immigration. In other words, if a person entices someone to enter the United States illegally, they are a co-conspirator to that crime. Conspiracy is a long-standing principle that has been a resource for government prosecutors to gain convictions against bad actors in every state.
According to 18 U.S. Code § 371, “If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.”
In this particular case, United States of America v. Evelyn Sineneng-Smith, a California lawyer was convicted after being charged by ICE for taking $5,900 from clients knowing they did not qualify for permanent residency status. But according to Clinton-appointed Ninth Circuit Judge A. Wallace Tashima, defrauding these people by encouraging them to commit an illegal immigration crime is protected by the First Amendment.
Judge Wallace wrote the law “criminalizes a substantial amount of constitutionally protected expression.” The other two panel members, judges Marsha Berzon and Andrew Hurwitz, agreed wholeheartedly. They were appointed by Clinton and Obama respectively.
As long as these so-called “judges” are willing to thumb their nose at long-standing law to push the extremist liberal agenda, we live in a lawless society.
#2: Excessive And Undue Influence
The Ninth Circuit includes an inordinate area and population. It covers approximately 20 percent of all Americans over land that nears one-third of the nation. These are the regions the Ninth holds sway over:
- Central District of California
- Eastern District of California
- Northern District of California
- Southern District of California
- Northern Mariana Islands
- Eastern District of Washington
Given the court’s willingness to follow personal political interpretations of the law, it seems fundamentally unfair that non-liberal regions should be subjected to the Ninth’s ideology. Even prior to the Trump Administration, states such as Arizona found the rulings biased and petitioned to be heard by another court or have the Ninth broken up. Additionally, the Ninth has consistently been unable to field a full panel of judges and relies on 11-member reviews. Splitting it into three courts makes sense.
#3: High Rate Of Reversed Rulings
The biased media likes to play fast and loose with statistics about the Ninth Circuit’s history of having decisions overturned. Taken as a whole, the Ninth ranks third in the total number of decisions being reversed. But such statistics fail to separate politically-charged decisions from others.
The Ninth Circuit has consistently ruled against the Trump Administration on issues such as the Travel Ban, DACA program, penalties for “sanctuary cities” for refusing to work with federal authorities such as ICE, among others. In each case, the Ninth has ruled in a way that supports the liberal extremist “resist” and “obstruct” movement of far-left Democrats. As each case reaches the U.S. Supreme Court, the Ninth consistently gets reversed on constitutional grounds. The bias is obvious. When liberals disagree with the Trump Administration, they run to the Ninth.
It’s a sad day in America when U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts feels compelled to issue a statement that the president’s comments about the Ninth are unfair.
“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”
What’s sadder is that everyday Americans know he is not being honest. There are clearly Clinton and Obama judges. They are political operatives who work on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
