    A Modest Proposal on What to do with the 9th Circuit Court. The 9th Circuit Court in it’s current embodiment is a disaster. The latest constitutional crisis is a perfect example. A rouge judge put a stay on the implementation of an emergency executive order without doing any of the necessary legal groundwork, foundations and augment. This was approved by a panel of three judges also without establishing the necessary legal foundations to support the stay. This is more than just angering, it goes against everything the Constitution stands for. The stay effectively takes power away from the Executive branch...

    Oh, the winning… it’s often too funny. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is now independently, on its own impetus, requesting an internal vote on a full panel en blanc hearing to review its own decision. Additionally, the full ninth are asking the Trump administration to file an additional brief telling the court why the three member original appeals ruling authority was wrong. In essence, the smart judges know what wasn’t considered, and are now looking for an out. You just can’t make this stuff up.

    Skating Under the Ice ^ | 2/8/17 | Willis Eschenbach
    I see that the President has referred to the judge in the Immigration Executive Order (EO) as a “so-called” judge. I thought this was unfortunate, not to mention bad tactics … but after listening to the oral arguments about the EO, I understood more about where he was coming from. The astounding part to me was that both the Judges and the lawyer for Washington State were discussing statements made by then-candidate Trump and by Rudy Giuliani, in order to determine whether this was really a “Muslim ban” in disguise. The argument the lawyer made and the three-judge panel is...
  • Bill to split 'nutty 9th Circuit' gains momentum

    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...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, undertook an extraordinary review Tuesday evening, hearing arguments for and against a stay of district court action that blocked President Trump’s Executive Order on immigration. From the outset, it was a pitched battle before a notoriously liberal Circuit. That said, the Justice Department acquitted itself well – and may have won an upset. If not the Super Bowl, there were surprises. Kick off was simple. Justice briefed a three-judge panel on the need for a temporary pause in migration from seven countries identified by Congress and the prior Administration as terrorist risks. They...

    Reason ^ | 6/18/12 | Mike Riggs
    At 7 a.m. on January 20, 2007, DEA agents battered down the door to Thomas and Rosalie Avina’s mobile home in Seeley, California, in search of suspected drug trafficker Louis Alvarez. Thomas Avina met the agents in his living room and told them they were making a mistake. Shouting “Don’t you *ucking move,” the agents forced Thomas Avina to the floor at gunpoint, and handcuffed him and his wife, who had been lying on a couch in the living room. As the officers made their way to the back of the house, where the Avina’s 11-year-old and 14-year-old daughters were...

    Montanans protecting their state's Firearms Freedom Act have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals asking whether the judges there will choose a "tyrannical" Washington or a federal government restrained by the Constitution. Quoting Alexander Hamilton's statement that the federalism system was intended to suppress "attempts of the government to establish tyranny," the brief filed by the Montana Shooting Sports Association, the Second Amendment Foundation and MSSA President Gary Marbut of Missoula states: "The government may argue that it is not, in its current incarnation, tyrannical. The national government usually abides by the law, typically protects its...

    A federal appeals court on Monday upheld a lower court decision that blocked the most contested provisions of Arizona’s immigration law from taking effect. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that a federal judge did not abuse her discretion in blocking provisions of the law that would, among other things, require police to check immigration status if they stop someone while enforcing other laws. The decision is a victory for the Obama administration,

    A Palestinian blocked from joining his family in the Bay Area four years ago after being stopped at San Francisco International Airport with material on the Islamist group Hamas in his computer can be deported as a potential terrorist, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday. The man's lawyer said, however, that the United States has not yet found a country that will accept him. Tareq Abufayad, then 24, was returning from college in Egypt to join his family in San Mateo four years ago today when he was questioned at the airport by a customs agent who said Abufayad had...

    Victor Nunez is an illegal alien from Mexico. Two years after arriving in the United States, he was convicted of petty theft for shoplifting. Then, he was convicted of a much more serious crime: He exposed himself in public. But even that wasn’t enough to have him removed from the country.   After a decade of his illegal presence, the Department of Homeland Security finally brought immigration charges to remove him from the United States. Crimes of “moral turpitude,” like exposing your genitals to children, are supposed to result in certain deportation.     The Immigration Judge denied his application, and the Board of...

    Although a Southern California water board member convicted of violating the Stolen Valor Act made "deliberate and despicable" claims that he had received the Medal of Honor, the Constitution prohibits the government from prosecuting someone for merely lying, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said in a 2-1 ruling. "The right to speak and write whatever one chooses - including, to some degree, worthless, offensive and demonstrable untruths - without cowering in fear of a powerful government is, in our view, an essential component of the protection afforded by the First Amendment," Judge Milan Smith said...

    Appeals Court: Women Wrestlers Can Sue UC Davis The Associated Press Feb. 8, 2010 SAN FRANCISCO -- An appeals court says it appears that the University of California, Davis violated federal law meant to promote gender equity in college athletics when it eliminated its women's wrestling program. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated a lawsuit Monday filed by three female wrestlers. The women were told in 2000 that they'd have to compete against men, then were cut from the varsity team. The plaintiffs accuse the university of violating Title IX, the federal law that requires schools to offer...

    The Federal Correctional Institute in Terre Haute, Indiana has a new resident. Robert Creamer of Evanston, Illinois moved in recently. He's the husband of far-left Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky--my representative in Congress. Creamer is the former executive director of the Illinois Public Action Council, a defunct organization that appointed itself as the consumer watchdog for Illinoisans. While running this goo-goo group, Creamer got in the habit of kiting checks, which is illegal for a very good reason: It undermines the most important ingredient of a functioning economic system, trust. Schakowsky was on the board of directors of IPAC while hubby was...

    FORT HUACHUCA — America’s history has been defined and shaped by what happened in the Old West. Part of that record was due to the achievement of black soldiers who help protect settlements in places such as Southern Arizona, Tom Stoney said Wednesday during the monthly luncheon hosted by the Greater Sierra Vista Area Chamber of Commerce’s Military Affairs Committee. And part of the story of the Buffalo Soldiers legacy needs to be saved, Stoney said to nearly 90 people. That can be done by ensuring the World War II black officers club on the post remains, he told nearly...
