Buried deep in the massive House spending-cut proposal is a provision to do what many conservatives have been wanting to do for years: split up the liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and allow President Bush to appoint some new judges to it.

If they can pull this off, it will be a great day in the history of this country and they will definitely have my vote in 2006.

It'll be great, indeed. And PLEASE tell me that the loonies already on the Ninth Circus will leave California and we'll get a whole new court. Let them go mess up Hawaii.

If they can clean up the 9th Circus they should be able to give the asses their own ring (Seattle, Portland, SF, etc).

"The provision prompted immediate outrage from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, who said there is "no justification" for it."

If Nutty Pelosi says there's no justification then that's all the more reason for it!

I'd give the current 9th circuit jurisdiction over a one square foot piece of dirt in the middle of the desert if I were in charge of congress.

Aw, they propose only to split it in two and not into a three-ring circus.

The very definition of Judicial Tyranny and neo-Stalinism. The worst federal court in American history, any time, anywhere.

It's not enough to divide it. What you do is you reduce the territorial scope of the district to northern California. Then you create about three new circuits in the other states. That way, we'll have thirty some liberal judges who's only responsibility is to decide cases that affect San Francisco and Oakland. Put new conservative judges in the new circuits.

Thanks for that post. I was wondering why there are only 9 circuits and if that was some sort of limit. Now I would like to know a little history.

How long have we had 9 circuits?

There are 11 Circuit Courts plus DC and a Federal Review Court.

Pella Lugosi's many facelifts and Botoxed mug have made it impossible for her to realize that the majority RULES.

I'm sure the 9th circuit will rule that this is unconstitutional.

They divided the Firth Circuit some years back to create the Eleventh Circuit. There's no reason the Ninth Circuit can't be divided.

YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
Let California have their own court, while the other states are freed from the anti-Constitution 9th Circuit.

Politics aside, the main reason the Ninth Circuit is being split is that it has the heaviest case load of any circuit. The judges don't have time to study and deliberate on their cases. This helps to explain their consistently screwy decisions.

This would indeed change the face of America and be a great triumph for Bush.

It should be well-publicized, along with the long series of lunatic ruling by that insane cabal of social freaks.

It would certainly boost Bush's ratings wher in counts - among those of us who voted for him - which is a significant majority of Americans.

This frustrates me. This shouldn't be a "republican" or "democrat" issue. Nobody loses power if we split this thing. We don't even need that many new justices, for a start they could just divide the justices from the current circuit.

It seems every senator except the california ones should love this idea, because it would benefit their constituents to have a more responsive appeals court. Even california SHOULD like this for the same reason.
